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

  1. It was bright color
  2. It was Silk Fabric
  3. 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.
