Closet findings have always brought us unexpected joy. From forgotten money bills in our jeans pockets to finally finding those lost shorts hidden under a pile a clothes, everything accounts for little joys.

So this Mother’s Day, we at Team BB, decided to peek into our mother’s wardrobes (once again)... because moms always have the nicest things, right? Here’s a list of all the beautiful things each of us have our eyes on…

“My mum's wardrobe has always had some of the best saris. From summery cotton saris to the most gorgeous Dhakai saris—her wardrobe was always a sari shop in itself. I know that if there's a wedding in the offing, I can always count on it and pick any one of her beautiful saris for the occasion.”

“Ever since I was a little girl, every time I hugged my mum, the one thing that always lingered was her fragrance. I have a very distinct memory of that! My mum has the widest collection of perfumes so naturally, that’s what I’d want—a patent fragrance—the one thing that will make me feel closer to her, always!”

“I love bangles and cuffs. The first time I ever played with cuffs was when I came across my mother’s collection of traditional Assamese jewellery called Gamkharu. I’ve had my eye on this particular authentic, golden one with colourful work on it that she barely wears anymore. Needless to say, I’m going to blatantly ask her for it very soon.”

“I’m a sucker for all things retro, be it accessories or collectibles. I’ve stumbled upon a few vintage rings and hairpins in my mum’s closet, and I’d call dibs on those first. One, because you rarely find those things anymore, and two, because even if I never actually wore them, they’re coveted collectibles. So, thanks mom!”

“My earliest fashion memory was me strutting around the house in my mom's electric blue stilettos at age 7. My mother has always had the most stunning collection of shoes I've ever seen and since we share the same size, I can’t help myself from borrowing a pair of strappy heels every now and then.”

“I’ve kept a close eye on my mother's sari collection ever since childhood. She has impeccable taste and loves designing her own saris too. She’s got an entire collection of 9-yard saris from different states of India as well as ethnic textiles like Benaras silks, Kanjeevaram, Paithani, Bandhani, Chanderi, Phulkari… you name it! Since her collection has always been available to me, I’ve never worried about having one of my own.”
