Festive season….. this time of the year brings a different vibe to it…the air has a special feel and everyone around is so much more joyous and vibrant and we just keep finding reasons to dress in our bright and beautiful indian wear. Lately I had been on shopping spree preparing for the festivals and the celebrations and indulging in some self indulgence …you see it is important right!!!!….I can come up with all sorts of excuses to shop sometimes and my excuse this time is that Diwali is around the corner…..
Mom and me went shopping , I feel mom’s make best shopping partners first because they don’t let you underspend…it is always over spending….and which girl doesn’t like to do that…..and secondly they also sponsor your shopping….hhahahhaa…I know I know……I am Financially Independent girl and all… but you see you cannot say no to mom when she wants to pay…….;-)…and thirdly they help you pick lovely things…. <3
Mom helped me pick this beautiful orange chanderi kurta from BIBA I fell in love with the colour and also that I can play it up and down with accessories because it has golden thread embroidery detailing on the yoke…n, I loved it as is, so when I wore it, I didn’t wear any neck accessories with it……and…. If you want to make it further dressy I would recommend a choker….
My next pick was a Fuchsia Skirt from BIBA , dull gold lace detailing in gotta on the hem made it simple yet so apt for dressing for the festivals, actually this skirt can be worn with your white shirts and tank tops……
Orange and Fuchsia are match made in fashion heaven and personally one of my favourite colour combinations besides Black and White, Pink and Red, Blue and White…. and a zillion more…..hahahhahaaa……I love love colours ….I Just love how these two colours compliment each other without overwhelming the other….
When I got dressed I felt the outfit called for a Rajput Princess look and the quintessential Bodla , the traditional Rajasthani head gear was all it needed to keep it simple and elegant at the same time. I bought the bodla from an exhibition in Delhi and I just love how beautiful, simple yet elegant it is….I paired with my favourite pair of Kundan earrings which again was an exhibition find at Mumbai….
Feet called for ( no they didn’t literally called out…hahhahaha)…have you noticed how everything calls out to me..be it clothes or jewellery or footwear ….coming back to feet…..they called for …. golden kohlapuri chapplas that I team with literally every outfit… my Indian wear and my denims, dresses and short. I feel every Indian girl should have at least one Kohlapuri’s …If you haven’t got one here is your excuse to go shopping….well now if a style coach says….go get it….:-)
To complete the look a Chanderi Duppatta was all I needed …… I loved these picks from BIBA…bright and beautiful….let me know how you like it…….. Happy Festivities…..wishing you all a whole lot of festive shopping sprees…..
