    Indo-Western Festive Fashion


    You all know how I’ve always loved to mix & match styles and cultures; and that I am an ardent fan of Indo-Western Looks. I love the artistry and elegance of Indian Ethnic pieces and the practicality and fit of the Western pieces. So, I combine both the elements that I adore and create an outstanding look which might help you stand out too.

    During festive season we like to deck ourselves up with all the ethnic things we can find in our wardrobes. But sometimes it might be a little too much for us to carry. And today is Rakshabandhan! An Indian (Hindu) Festival dedicated to the Brother and Sister Relationship; where brothers promise their sisters to be their rock solid support and security. And sisters tie ‘Rakhi’- A Protective Band on their brother’s wrist and pray for their longevity. We do celebrate Rakshabandhan here in NZ but its not a public holiday like in India. So, I didn’t got all the way ethnic today, because I wanted it to be practical for me at the same time as I was out and about the whole day. Hence I opted for this Indo-Western Kurti & Denim Look. By the way its winter here in NZ but it was a warmer day today; so I added this Kachhi art-work Pink Jacket on the top and also a light art-work mustard Shawl which is precious to me since its one of the timeless pieces from my mum’s wardrobe.


    I and hubby visited my best buddy’s place aka Lord Krishna’s Temple at ISCON Riverhead today after a long long time. One of my most fave places when I want that piece of mind both psychically and spiritually. What else could be a better backdrop than this then?

    I believe my love for White doesn’t need to be mentioned anymore ha ha! But this time there is something more special than the colour in this Kurti/Top which is the textured artwork on it named ‘ChickenKari’. Well the people who are interested in where I got this top from? I bought the fabric from India, I designed it and got it tailored there when I visited India last time. Also, another proof of my ‘White Love’ are the pointy pumps I am wearing!

    Now come the accessories: I kept it very simple and elegant in terms of accessories this time. And it got to look artistic as well since the bangle and the earrings are all wooden! (I LOVE wooden/clay handmade jewelries) 


    And last but not the list is the hairdo. Trust me it was a quick and hassle free hairdo considering I have short hair now! Just some twist with my ‘twisted’ hair while twisting down in a format of a spiral twisted bread! Whatts tounge twister! 😂🙈

    Well, this was my festive season look. Do experiment with yours and have fun while doing it!

    Much ❤️
