The Indian festive lookbook: Part 2

Festive outfit

Hi Guys…

Wish you all a very Happy Navratri!

I think this festive season started on a good note for me as I got myself a new laptop finally after long procrastination and mainly because I had lost all hopes of getting the old one back from service centre. With the kind of dependency I have on my laptop for blog and office work, it was a challenge to manage stuff all these days. But sales came around at the right time and no force on earth could have stopped me from utilising it.

Coming to the post, It is in continuation with the previous ethnic fusion look here for festive lookbook series. In this post, I have styled my favourite suit in the colour combination of blue and gold with pipal patti earrings native to Punjabi traditional jewellery. The first thing that caught my fancy when I saw this dress was its colour. The dark smokey shade of blue is very fall appropriate and creates a beautiful contrast with gold. The embroidery is done manually by artisans using resham(silk) and zari threads on georgette fabric. I decided not to go with the regular churidar or Patiala salwar but tailored pants for a more sophisticated look.

I believe it is unwise to spend money on something unflattering for your body type just because everyone is wearing it. Each one of us is unique and our personal style should reflect that. Try and decide what works best for you and accentuates your body type. For an example, the very first thing that I make sure of before purchasing any new dress is the colour. Then comes the fit, fabric, styling and occasion that you need it for.  This particular outfit is best suited for Puja or Diwali dinner over friend’s place and even for a wedding reception party. The makeup can be kept minimal if your dress is this grand. A bright lip and soft eyes is my go to.

On another note, I am so bummed to be missing Diwali celebrations with family yet again this year. How are you celebrating Diwali and where? I would love to know.. 🙂

See you soon.

Raman
