This time the focus is on Indian Dress.. Amongst all other Indian wear, Saree is the most fashionable Outfit. Every Indian Women would be having a Treasure of Saree’s, whether she be a traditional lady or a Mordern One… Many have Old sarees that they do not wear,  but still do not want to give them away or throw them due to either of  these reasons…1) Its gorgeous..
