In India, the most important festival of all, ‘Deepawali’ has just gone by.
Everyone including me is still settling down in the monotony of usual busy life and so is the smog in the air of Delhi NCR. Sometimes I feel it to be kind of funny when people burn so many fire crackers. How can one find happiness by compromising their money and health? Why do we forget that both sound pollution and air pollution have lasting ill effects not only to a human body but also they harm the environment too. Arghhh..
So coming back to being beautiful I so wanted to share with you this ‘Festive Move On’ style file.
I had this beautiful self-designed ethnic jacket made for myself recently. The material of which I bought it from Amritsar, Punjab a couple of years ago. It was basically a cotton cloth piece with magnificent & famous hand embroidery of Punjab called ‘Phulkari’ done on it. The characteristic of this type of embroidery is it has a lot of small colorful flowers made on usually a bold color plain cloth.
After many rounds of alteration, masterji (my tailor) finally nailed it just as I wanted it to look like. It has a chain if I want to close it. The best part about this jacket is that it can be worn in ethnic fashion as well as with a western twist.
The inspiration for this ‘Festive Move On’ style is from bold & beautiful film actress Kangna Ranaut’s look in her blockbuster movie Tanu Weds Manu Returns. So I have teamed my ethnic Phulkari jacket with a teal colored Patiyala Salwar (ethnic lower) and a racer-back tank top.
I have adorned ethnic jewelry and Jaipuri slip-ons (jootiya in Hindi). To complete the bold look I have worn a pair of stunning sunglasses that I won in one of the blogging contest!
