What are you weraing this Diwali - part 1



Our favourite time of the year is here :D Diwali dinners and parties have begun. And festivities always call for bright colours and vintage jewelry. I chose to wear this yellow kurta paired with this Pure Ghee brocade sling. It's actually a smartphone sling which doubles up as a potli to keep your essentials. The dainty silk flowers add the festive touch while keeping me hands free. 


If a saree is too much of a hassle for you, pick out a lovely versatile kurta. I wore this Ajrakh kurta with a crinkled skirt to add to the festive vibe and give the salwars a break. I completed the look with a Pure Ghee gold gajra, my go-to accessory, and a one of a kind patch work clutch, again from Pure Ghee. 

Nothing beats the beauty of a traditional Indian handwork. If you're not one for heavy suits and sarees, pick out a simple embroidered piece. I wore this beautiful white Kurta with traditional Kashmiri tilla embroidery paired with a bright pink salwar. No more dressing up required ! Just my favourite gold Pure Ghee gajra and gajra potli and simple gold earrings. And like they say, simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. Find a similar Pure Ghee Potli here.


The red and black combination is classic. It's perfect for these nippy festive nights. I wore this red kurta with delicate ari embroidery paired with a kutchi black bandhani dupatta I bought when I was a student at NID. The look is completed with a polka-dotted gajra potli and a string of gold gajra in my hair, both from Pure Ghee. Combining different handwork techniques creates beautiful textures and a rich feel.

This green mashru silk kurta is perfect for how unpredictable the weather has become now. And while it's simple, the color is so beautiful and festive. I'm going to pair this with a yellow and ivory Benarasi dupatta and glam it up with a fucshia Pure Ghee Potli and a string of Pure Ghee ivory gajra. Let's not be matchy matchy! Let's have fun with colours!


A bright kurta with the right accessories can do the magic. A fuschia silk kurta paired with this happy Pure Ghee stole is going to be my pick for those easy-breezy Diwali get-togethers. The bright yellow Chanderi scarf is going to keep me hands-free without all the dupatta drama and the tassels will add that bohemian touch. Will finish the look with our limited edition, statement phulwari clutch. Find this clutch online here
