When I was young I loved wearing my mom’s saree and getting all dolled up with her maroon/red lipstick and big bindi. I always admired my mom how she drapes her saree, wear those kundan bangles and carry those clutches. Believe it or not! We girls always wanted to become like our mom when we were a kid. And till date we grab a thing or two from her wardrobe. Some things are just classic and no matter how much you hunt it’s difficult to get a copy. This is a fact that the first saree every girl wears is from her mother’s closet. Not only saree, the jewellery set, bangles and even make up is adopted from our beloved mother. Here are some of the fashion picks which you can easily steal from your Mom’s closet.Bling it-
Bling is everywhere! Our mom’s always knew how to style those stylish blingy brooches. Tap out the fashionista in you and style that brooch in your very own style. You can pin it up on your blazer, a cocktail gown or that designer saree you bought to wear on your friend’s wedding.
You laughed and called them goggles! But here it is in trend again. The big size glares have personal favourite to many actresses. Preity Zinta loves sporting her Chanel oversized glares. Noticed Kareena in her Lakme eyeconic ad? There you are with your latest sunglasses. Voila! You just saved so much of bucks.
Old antique pieces are precious jewels which are always treasured. They are available at rocket price today. Some of the best pieces are lying in our mom’s stash. The old jhumkas, kundan bangles and maalas are much loved by fashionista. No need of shopping, become a jewel thief and rock the jhumkas and kadas.Trousseau box-
Get your very own vanity box by converting your mom’s antique trousseau box into a vanity box. The kind of work and design the trousseau box has is an absolute piece of art. You can always personalise by adding mirror and adding the acrylic compartments. Flaunt your piece of art amongst your friends.Sensuous Sarees-
Our first saree is always from our mom’s closet. The zardosi work and rich embellished designs are a big comeback. Mom’s always have a huge collection of sarees from chiffon to the heavy embroideries. Team up that saree with a whacky piece of blouse from your creation. Unleash the diva in you by carrying her hand jhola.
Always look out for her shawls which will be a beautiful piece of Pashmina. Nothing can keep us as warm as these beautiful pashmina make. Take up on her beautiful dressing table essentials like her spraying perfume in vintage, the beautiful hand mirror, her maang tikka. There are so many things in her closet than you can grab and travel back in time to live and feel the way she did. So which is your favourite piece from your Mom’s closet? Her saree, trousseau or jewellery?
