Stone Bindis and How I match them with my clothes
Like how I collect perfumes, watches and foot wear I also collect pretty bindis though most of the time you can only find me with an empty forehead [in spite of being a married South Indian :P] I do use them when I wear salwars and sarees. I usually prefer very small sized bindis and hence you can’t find many big ones in my collection.
As I have proper storage for all my stuffs, except cosmetics, even all my bindis found a proper place in my chocolate box. My dad got these chocolates from his overseas trip and I have all the bindis in this cute little yellow box. The wooden box has all long bindis and that is all the big ones I have.
I usually wear such long and big bindis with heavy designer sarees and lehengas. I always feel heavy work in your clothes must be complimented by wearing subtle makeup and large bindis. I have these large ones in all possible colours 😉
Here is my collection in this box.
Though I don’t wear bindi everyday I always carry them in my handbag for emergency. If at all I had to meet my granny or other relatives it is safer I go with a bindi else I’ll be the talk of the day. So I carry these simple bindis with me always.
Bindis for salwars
I prefer small ones to go with my salwars and I have a huge collection of small sized bindis ranging from single stoned ones to cluster of stones. Here are the pictures of the ones in varying sizes. I always match it with the colour of my clothes. Sometimes I even add or delete few parts of the bindis to make it suit my clothes.
Medium sized bindis for traditional silk sarees
I usually match my silk sarees with round bindis or the ones in the shape of a semi circle. Very rarely I go with diya shaped ones.
Diya shaped bindis
Medium sized bindis for designer sarees
Here are few more bindis that I match with my designer saree which are not very heavy. Most of the bindis in this collection are inverted pear shaped and I prefer that particular shape usually for my designer sarees.
I also get a bottle of glue [2ml] that is meant for these bindis. So whenever I lose the gum with those expensive bindis I apply the glue and paste it back in the strips. I have bindis that range from Rs.10 per packet to Rs.100 per bindi [in gold].
Hope you all liked my bindi collection. If you have suggestions for how to match these bindis with my clothes do share the same as I just go with what I feel and have never got any suggestion from any one so far.

Aarthi….even I am a bindi freak like you…although I wear small round black bindis for everyday….I know living in South India and being married and not having a bindi is a blasphemy…..all aunties and padosi’s point out if there isn’t a small bindi on my forehad 😐 😐 😐
hey nice bindis.. especially the small flower shaped ones..n those big bindis are awsome!!!
where do you get the glue? Me likes the idea of glue…I hate missing an exact matching bindi due to glue issues
