A Traditional & Vibrant Vibe!


Lehenga is my absolute favourite ethnic-wear; I'd choose it over anything including saris. What I enjoy the most though is customizing the entire outfit right from fabric shopping to planning the design. I'd been wanting to get a raw silk lehenga for the longest time ever and of course it had to be a bright colour. Given how rich raw silk as a fabric looks, I wanted the lehenga to be more or less simple with just some gold work at the bottom. Speaking of the blouse, I got this sequinned gold one stitched as a versatile piece to mix and match with different outfits. What I love the most about it besides the sequins of course is the back! Another thing I'm obsessed with are dupattas. I keep picking them up in different colours and fabrics without a specific purpose in mind. This simple fuschia pink dupatta had been lying in my wardrobe for a while. The designer went ahead and revamped it by adding gorgeous mirror patch-work! For me it was love at first sight...

I'd wear this outfit to a close friend's wedding. Depending on how simple or heavy I'd like my look to be, it is the hair and jewellery that I'd experiment with. The best part about this outfit for me is how I can use the blouse, dupatta and lehenga separately to create new looks. With bright colours, embellishments and my favourite fabrics, the ensemble is everything I love! ♥ 

My makeup and hair is done by Dhira's Makeup studio. Based in Aundh, Pune I'd hands down recommend this place for all things beauty related. In fact, I fondly like to call Dhira a makeup magician!

Lots of love - M!
