#SariNotSorry

I can still distinctly remember the first time I wore a sari. I remember feeling so beautiful and grown up (even though I was in the awkward teenage years). I had planned with my mother, for a week, on which one I would wear and why. Since then, even with all the changing fashion trends, I still prefer to wear a sari whenever the occasion presents itself. There is something so femine and elegant about the sari and it’s versatility is a testimony to its ability to survive thousands of years.

Did you know there are over 100 different ways to tie a sari? Let Rta Kapur Chishti teach you The Art of Sari Draping during her talk and live demo on Sunday, April 23rd in Oak Brook. The renowned ‘sari historian’ is being brought to the Chicagoland by the Indo-American Heritage Museum whose mission is to celebrate the culture of Indian Americans in Chicago.

Why We Love Chicago – Reason #30

The big narratives may define a city, but the small kindnesses hold it together.

I’ve lived in Chicago for almost 9 years now and I’ve been completely and ridiculously in love with this city since I got here. The reasons are many and not always something I can easily put into words, but when I read Tony Fitzpatrick‘s piece in Chicago Magazine‘s March edition on the 67 Reasons Why We Love Chicago, I knew it expressed almost exactly how I feel about “The City of Broad Shoulders“. Well, if not how I feel per se but I totally agree with what he has to say! Below is the article in it’s entirety. Enjoy!
