Being Festive

Hey guys, hope you all had a wonderful and joyous Diwali celebrations with your friends and family. Today I decided to share my Diwali outfit with y’all. Before getting started, I must say I loved Preyansi Mani’s recent post about saree and I couldn’t agree more. Saree is indeed a graceful, sensual, comfortable piece of clothing that makes one feel beautiful, empowered and free and I am glad I am in love with it.

I love wearing sarees and am always looking for a reason to wear one. Diwali is definitely one of those occasions. I have to say wearing saree in this part of the world is a pretty fun experience as you always stand out and get overwhelmed with compliments. Ever since I saw the movie Ram Leela I fell in love with the traditional Kutch work embroidery design from Gujarat. Thanks to designers like Sabyasachi and Nishka Lulla, who with their creative and unique designs elevated this ethnic style to another level. This Rabari designed statement blouse which I am wearing is from Soch’s Ira collection. I adore it’s multicolor thread design with all over mirror work and it’s stylish neck pattern. Since it had a lot of heavy work I decided to pair it with a plain simple saree (a 25 year old one borrowed from my mom). To compliment the blouse, my sweet little sister stitched simple and colorful borders on it. I styled my look with some statement silver necklace (which reminded me a lot of Kerala style kashumala and mullamottu mala), bangle and rings.
