    You Saree and the spirit behind it utterly beautiful.

    That’s Wonderful Parul. Have been following your posts on FB. I must say you have patience & determination to complete the challenge. It wasn’t easy. You looked beautiful. Hugs 🙂

    I am sure all of you who took this challenge had a lot of fun. And also played a small part in bringing the saree back in vogue :D.

    Moreover, kudos to you for completing the challenge quite successfully. I am sure a lot many would fall by the wayside but you stuck to it :).

  7. Shantala says:

    I always love to see someone see a challenge through. You did it, and with such style. Your smiling face in all those sarees really livened up my timeline. I will miss that.

    I also envy you. I am awkward and uncomfortable in sarees. Someday I hope to be able to wear them with as much grace and poise as you do.

    I saw some of your pictures, and you looked so comfortable in sarees. That’s great. I am happy you enjoyed this pact and had fun completing it 🙂

    In a way this thing had the potential to revive the art of wearing sari among urban women. I just hope it didn’t “ethnicize” the sari, if you know what I mean by that 🙂 Sari has been and continues to be a most unique Indian dress and should remain like that, without any “ethnic” tag which will rather ghettoise it and take away this most natural drape of ordinary Indian woman and put it in the hands of designers.

    It was a beautiful year!! All you lovely ladies looked so beautiful! 🙂
    I enjoyed the stories each one of you shared 🙂

    Hi. I’m glad to have “met”‘ you. I admire these social media events because they give food for thought, purpose and much more. I hope to prepare a post for #MondayMusings and return here to link. It is tough to maintain a blog challenge event and I hope yours will sustain momentum.

  11. Rekha says:

    Congratulations Parul! You deserve a huge round of applause for having finished the challenge so beautifully. I love sarees but I am still not able to carry it properly. Your pictures make me want to wear one right away but the winter chill says otherwise. 🙂

  12. Meena Menon says:

    Those lines where u speak of why the sari is so you, is very heart warming indeed !

  13. anks says:

    I have followed some of your saree pact posts on social media and I must say I am a fan… you carry the saree with elegance and incorporating it in the daily routine is awesome… am also glad that you interpreted it as a pact to wear sarees more often rather than buying and wearing 100 sarees 🙂

    kudos girl…

  14. nabanita says:

    How wonderful Parul! I didn’t take part in this because I don’t wear saree so often, not because I don’t love wearing it but because I’m not comfortable going out and spending whole day in office in it..Of course, this year there were other factors which made wearing saree unthinkable…Loved your journey though…Oh, I have recently purchased two sarees and can’t wait to put them on…By the way you look very good in sarees 🙂

  15. You did a great job with this challenge and loved looking at all the photographs of you in sarees, Parul. The last time I wore a saree was for my wedding, nine years ago. I’m almost tempted to start wearing them again for special occasions at least. However, I gave all my sarees away, including my wedding saree.

    PS: What a sweet gesture from your friend. You must have felt so honoured.

      Thanks Corinne! You should wear for special occasions like your recent family get together? 🙂 May be buy one to start 🙂
      Yes, I loved her gesture as well. So kind and loving one!

  16. Sreesha says:

    Yes! You completed it. Lots of hugs to you! I loved this post of yours – loved reading about the sari journey!

    I so wanted to do this but I got to know very late about the pact 🙁 first half of this year I was completely MIA from social media for good and hence unaware 🙁 But this one gave me so much happiness in terms of the updates on FB TL (yours included) esp the stories behind all those sarees 🙂

    • Parul Thakur says:

      It was fun Richa and it’s never late. I heard someone started yesterday. It was all about your personal comfort and the number was just an indicator 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

  18. Esha says:

    What a lovely post, Parul! You look gorgeous in those lovely saree pics you’ve been putting up 🙂 I think nothing can beat the saree in grace and beauty ever and although I wasn’t part of the #100sareepact, I too have worn them on so many occasions over the last year. All I needed was an excuse to do so. I thought this was a fantastic idea seeing so many people I know who would wear it to work in today’s world all because of the #100sareepact! Looking forward to whatever is coming next…whatever it is am sure it will be exciting…perhaps I might even join this time 😀

  19. Shailaja says:

    I am so glad you did the pact and did it in the right spirit 🙂 What I love about sarees is the absolute comfort you feel once you get used to wearing them. I wore them all through my college years and became so cozy in it that it became like a second skin. I never shied away from wearing saris to any event/holiday/outing. It was and will always be my favourite attire.

    Kudos on completing the pact, Parul. Life threw way too many curve balls for me to ensure that I would stick to it this time but maybe I will take it up again in 2016.

    • Parul Thakur says:

      Thank you Shailaja! If it wasn’t you, I would not have known on the pact and you know that. So big hugs! In North of India, unmarried girls wear sarees only on occasions and when I was growing up, even that was uncommon. So I was waiting to get married to be able to wear sarees. I am glad I could do that 🙂
