Ganesh Chaturti is knocking on the door already. The start of all festivals for Indians. Now soon Navratri and on it will go. However, when we think about Ganesh Chaturti all that comes to our mind is Maharashtra’s Ganesh Chaturti. Hence, Peshwa Ganesh.
Now lets come to the point..I love how Maharashtrian women dress up in their regional way. And when the famous movie Bajirao Mastani movie released, I freaking loved Priyanka Chopra’s Kashi Bai look! ❤ So for this Ganesh Chaturti I decided to go Peshwai with a Nauvari style saree.
This saree was actually a gift from my dad to my mom. A famous fabric for saree called Kanjivaram. As it is known that girls have eyes on their mom’s wardrobe, I always had an eye on my mom’s Kanjivaram. ( can’t help it! its soo royal and gorgeous. )
So I wore the Kanjivaram draped into Nauvari style. Accessorised myself with the famous Maharashtrian nath (nore pin), A long necklace paired with a choker necklace, a pair of earrings, some bangles and the lovely bindi on my forehead. The half moon style or an alphabet from Hindi/Bengali language called Chandra Bindu. It was soo hard to draw it on my forehead. Hats off to the ladies who do it with such perfection. ❤ I also made a bun behind my head and twisted a bit of my front hair and pinned it behind. Also pinned some red flowers (fake) beside the bun.
Maybe the draping wasnt fully correct but still for the time being I am really happy with this look. 😀
