Welcome back B E A U T I S T A A s!
One of my favorite festivals is around the corner and the pre-Diwali parties have started! I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to showcase some of the outfits I am wearing during this period. Today you will see the first outfit – numero UNO of the three!
For those who don’t know what Diwali is, here’s a short story:
Deepawali or Diwali is a festival of lights symbolizing the victory of righteousness and the lifting of spiritual darkness. The word “Deepawali” refers to rows of diyas, or clay lamps. This is one of the most popular festivals in the Hindu calendar. It is celebrated on the 15th day of Kartika, according to the Hindu calendar. This festival commemorates Lord Rama’s return to his kingdom Ayodhya after completing his 14-year exile.
Diwali celebrations may last for up to five days. Many people decorate their home and workplaces with tiny electric lights or small clay oil lamps. Bowls of water with candles and flowers floating on the surface are also popular decorations. Many people make a special effort to clean their homes and yards before Diwali. They may also wash themselves with water and fragrant oils, wear new clothes and give gifts of sweets to family members, close friends and business associates. Fireworks are set off in the evening in some areas. Melas (fairs) are held in many towns and villages. Moreover, great get together parties are held with amazing food and everyone wishing each other a very HAPPY DIWALI!
Without wasting more time, let’s get directly to the outfit I wore on the Indian Business Chamber (IBC) Diwali Party. This party not only included delicious food and great music, but it also had great entertainment, such as dance performances and fireworks!
Even though Diwali is a festival celebrating traditions, I went for a modern look on this particular pre-Diwali party. However, I chose for a dress with glittery gold on black and some more golden details, such as in my footwear and bangles to get that sparkle of Diwali.
I wanted it to be a sophisticated look, with very little jewellery, sleek straight hair and minimum make-up without any bold lips. Moreover, I chose to carry a black clutch over a golden one, because otherwise the emphasis of the entire look would have gone to the clutch only and not on the look itself.
Everything fitting together without anything jumping out, letting the dress with the golden details do its work!
What do you think about this look?
Be ready for more Diwali looks, which will be traditional Indian wear!
