Dressing up for festive season in India ~ Durga Puja and Diwali Looks 2014
The festive season in India officially started with the Navratras & Ganesh Chaturthi and I have been having a gala time this year with my family, especially with my infant daughter. We had lots of fun during Durga Puja (which was the first one for my daughter) and repeated that yesterday on Diwali. The only thing is that I did not get time to post my festive looks this time around. So, here I am sharing my festive season looks of Durga Puja & Diwali 2014.
Durga Puja 2014 Looks
Look #1 – Batik Saree with silver necklace (Batik Saree via Nalli, Silver Necklace via Strings & Beads) I kept it simple wearing Batik Saree for daytime during Durga Puja & wore siilver necklace & black bindi.
Look #2 – Custom made Rickshaw print maxi skirt via Howrah Bridge, Vest via Quirk Box, tee via Benetton, statement necklace via RuHH and Bag via Hidesign. This was my quirkiest best festive season look so far. Howrah Bridge has some great stuff in rickshaw print (other than this maxi skirt) and you can also have custom made stuff done with them (don’t you love brands which do custom made stuff for you, Well, I for one definitely do!!!)
Look #3 – – Cotton wrap skirt via Small Town, top via Motherhood Maternity, sling bag via Hidesign. I discovered this really sweet Indie startup brand Small Town on Facebook & bought this wrap skirt from them (They are into working with traditional weavers and do a lot more than one of a kind pieces, read more about them here). I am very happy with the honest way the proprietors interact with customers and have already booked some more things with them.
Look#4 – Custom made maxi dress in aztec print & polka dot via Howrah Bridge
Look #5 – Camel Print Maxi Dress custom made via Howrah Bridge. Well, anyone who reads my blog regularly knows that I & Howrah Bridge have a long & beautiful association, so this custom made piece another feather in our crown.
Diwali 2014 Look – This year I went for the classic saree look. I wore a Bright yellow Chanderi Saree with lotus motifs all over it. I accessorized with Amrapali gold plated statement earrings and titan raga watch.
Which look of mine gets your vote?? And what has been your festive dress up this season?? (Tell me, Tell me :))
