You know you are in Mumbai when the festivities are in the air at this time of the year. Ganesh Chaturthi is one of the most celebrated festivals in this part of the world. It marks the beginning of the festive season and all that a girl needs is more reasons to buy, make and take out the Indian-wear all dressy and flouncy and rich.
I am as girly as girly gets, never been a tomboy, though I love the grunge as much as the bling , I take my love for wearing Indian wear to a whole different level during the festivities.
So my lovelies in the weeks and months your truly is going to photo document as many possible of my Indian wear looks and share with you.Officially I have more reasons to dress up , its my job too… hehehehhee all in the name of work you see…. I just love my job….. dressing up doesn’t even feel like work you see…. 😉
By no mean does it mean I don’t work hard enough. Like you guys know I also also Style Coach people and help them dress , look and feel good. It gives me immense happiness to see the transformations and the joy of seeing happiness in the eyes of my clients and the confidence in their gait……. it sure is a priceless feeling.
So, I was at the Lakme Fashion Week last week and as always it is a joy to see the veteran, new and upcoming talent all at the same platform. Some are quirky and some classic, some love their cottons and some their silks. It is an awesome platform to meet new and talented designers on the block, there is where I met the very lovely Designer Mrunalini Rao from Hyderabad. She loves designing Indian wear and her outfits were classic and gorgeous. See for your self….
Without being over the top and just the right bling is her style. The lehengas designed by her had gorgeous use of embroidery and just the right mix of colours. and are the kind you would wear to a wedding in the family or a friend in a heartbeat,brides who love classic and timeless styling would love them for their trousseau .
I decided to wear one of her outfits for the festivities. Gowns are mostly kept aside for the evenings and yours truly decided to wear it during the day time, this particular gown by Mrunalini is so Indian in its essence that I wore it for the ganesh Chaturthi celebrations. I loved the colour and and a subtle dash of bling . This outfit could be played up by accessorising and using bright makeup for an evening. Since I was wearing it during the day I decided to use a subtle gold hair band as the only accessory and tied my hair in a low bun.
Kept the makeup simple, Just used the Ponds BB cream as a base, which instantly brightens the skin . Eyes were done up in slightly thick eyeliner than I usually wear and some mascara. Some blush and nude Lipstick and I was ready to greet the lord and celebrate the festive in style.
I hope you enjoyed the look. Looking forward to hearing from you.
