Diwali is a beautiful festival; so full of colour, vibrance and happiness. By now you probably know that ethnic outfits have never been ones I wear often. I think it has something to do with a rather tragic traditional day I celebrated in school when I was 15 where I wore a gorgeous blue and pink saree. But by the end of the day, the saree came undone with me returning home, pleats undone in one hand and my heels in the other. Nevertheless, since then, traditionalism means easier fabrics to handle, something without pleats and definitely no heels. And that is exactly what I was in this year while paying some Diwali visits.
I love the simple festivity of the entire outfit. And who knows, maybe I'll even attempt a saree somewhere down the road.

Embroidered churidar kurta - Vintage, Black leggings - Marks and Spencer, Gold hair band - DIY, Stone studded sandals - Inc 5, Bangles and cuff - Thrift (Bandra, Colaba), On my lips - Maybelline 'Luminous Beige', On my eyes - Maybelline Drama Gel Liner, On my nails - MaxFactor 'Red Carpet Glam'

It was a day started by a rushed photo-shoot and followed by a happy feasting on besan ladoos *one of my favorites!* and more sweets. All in all, it's been a good day !
Happy Diwali to each and every one of my readers, all PR and brand personnel and your families. Here's to a year full of joy, happiness and mithai! Cheers!
