Ethnic Dressing for Festive Season
I have been eye on a dress like the one Kareena Kapoor Khan had worn ever since I saw it.
It had all what I wanted
- It was bright color
- It was Silk Fabric
- It had golden brocade work
Love for colors
I love to have colors in life. I am not a black/white person.
You would always see me wearing bright colors. Pink, yellow, purples, green, orange.

Love for Silk – The Classic fabric
I would be lying if I say I love silk. Well there was a time, the few pieces of silk I had were from my in-laws gifted to me during my wedding.
Bengalis have a fetish for silk and I think over the year I have turned Bengali in more ways than one. Well off course one being my love for silk.
I can never forget the compliments I received for my reception saree. This is a Banarasi silk with zardozi work.
In the picture below I am wearing the same saree after 8 years on a relative’s reception.
The amount of compliments I have received whenever I have worn a silk outfit has increased my love for the fabric exponentially 😀
Coming back to the dress I wore this Rakhshabandan.
It is comprising of 2 pieces
- The top
Green color raw silk piece with golden thread work of flower and leaves. The golden thread added to the royal look of the piece and gave a beautiful shine to it.
A plain long kurta 10 inches above the ground level. Sleeves made just upto elbow length.
- The skirt/lehnga
The bottom part is also raw silk in bright pink color. The golden thread work adds to the shine of the fabric.
I wanted it to be flary so I did not get any cancan added. If you like you can get it added as well
The skirt/lehnga is medium flared thus can be used otherwise with a regular croptop as well. The skit has a red border at the bottom and that was created using plain raw silk fabric in red color.
I did not have the piece like Kareena Kapoor is wearing however this statement necklace I got from Noida sector-50 market added to the look.
This look was all about getting the right fabric for your dress. I was lucky enough to get the same material in the local boutique. However, portals like Tissura have a huge variety of fabrics which can help you get the right fabric of your choice. You can find them on Instagram
To finish the look I did this very light makeup with Nude lips.
Hope you like festive look.
