How was your Diwali? For me,I am still under Diwali Charm.This post is not gonna be really wrong as I am just sharing what I wore on Diwali.
It was a beautiful day spent. We started with exchanging gifts and sweets with our loved ones,visited Old age home to celebrate with them,followed by Rangoli making and finally dressing up for Diwali Puja.
I have been celebrating ‘Cracker Free Diwali’ from last few years and hope you all have also been doing the same.It is not only harmful for us as crackers lead to every sort of pollution. Moreover,imagine the amount of hardwork sweepers and cleaners have to put the next day to clean our city.If you have not followed ‘Say No to Crackers’ this time,I hope you will be a good and responsible citizen and not burst crackers next Diwali.
Talking about my Diwali #OOTD, I mentioned in my last post that I am not much of a bling person and like to keep my clothing simple yet stylish. This Diwali,I chose to wear a black kurti with some mirror work and embroidered neck.. This was to add that festival effect to the outfit and got flare pants of matching color from streets.Colors are must in our Indian Festival and the heavy front embroidery worked for my outfit to shine out. I am lean and tall and this was the reason to wear a little loose kurti.It works for thin people as it adds some fullness to your body whereas tight fitted suites will show how skinny you are.Flare pants are in and I know more than leggings or skirt flare pants would look best and they did! Don’t forget to put on a ‘BINDI’ to give you that Indian Beauty look.
I wore this outfit with minimal jewelry and multicolored ‘MOJARIS’.
Basically, I saved money to help some needy people this time and not spend much on an outfit which I don’t even know that when I am gonna wear it next.
Have a look at my outfit and hope you like it.
Kurta was black in color but embroidery which was full of festive colors and mirror work were enough to give me that #indianchic look this Diwali.The kurta might look heavy to you in pictures but it was a cotton kurta and feather light to wear.I got it from nearby boutique and it costed me 600 bucks(including the flare pants). I loved it on the very first sight.
I kept my hairdo like the one I showed you in my last post ‘12 Must Try Hairstyle inspiration from celebrities this festive season.It was Sonam Kapoor’s look with middle partition and twisties pinned at the back.I kept my make up light as I had to stay home and with family. So,I chose to with very subtle make up and accessorized wearing only Golden Jhumkas. I bought these for 60 bucks from streets of Kamlanagar,Delhi.
You can buy some great Jhumka earring from ‘Mirraw’ which has wide range of exquisite accessories.
I did french manicure but with a golden glitter nailpaint. Similar one can be seen on my Instagram account.On my one had hand,I decided to keep them bare and added just a junkie statement ring costed me Rs.50.
On my other hand I wore a very traditional jeweled handcuff which you won’t believe that it was only for Rs.70. I got it from streets of Kamlanagar,Delhi.Paired it with two bangles of same colors and similar look making it look like a part of handcuff. These two costed me nothing as they were my mother’s jewelry. So some wardrobe sharing happened this Diwali. 😛
And this how it looked; in the above picture.
Can you see these oriental prints? This gave the outfit very much Indian look that I wanted. I seriously loved the color combination of gold and purple and thinking soon to mix both in next outfit of mine.
Before I reach the clutch,I bought these ethnic multicolor Mojaris.This also was bought from Jaipur and for unimaginable price of Rs.100 and trust me they are as comfy as any 1000 bucks moajari would be. I love the mosaic embroidery done on these mojaris using colored thread and they went so well with my outfit.
Last but not the least,is this tassle clutch. Omg! it is so beautiful that I even carry it with my casuals. It looks beautiful and cost was just Rs. 100(after lot of bargaining though!). U-N-B-E-L-I-E-V-A-B-L-E. Don.t you love this too? This was bought from Jaipur,Rajasthan.A beautiful place,I must say.
In love with these tassels and coins combination.
