Now this is one set I loved in the online collection of Shoopers Stop. I think it's by Vikram Phadnis and belongs to the Kashish collection. I love the cut and styling. The peach top and elegant dupatta. It's just that I wanted something richer for Diwali and that's why I rejected it, so to speak. But I can think of several functions where I could wear this. Elegant...
I don't know what made me think that picking my favorite apparel and accessories from Shoppers Stop would be easy. How wrong I was:( I was soo confused. There are soo many options to choose from !! I was looking for an outfit for Diwali - something with a festive look. After browsing through several pages I decided I would choose a salwaar kameez. I wanted something Indian and ethnic and dressy. There were several I liked. But I told myself- only one- only one!! Anyway after flipping back and forth through their online store I finally chose a few things. So here is the outfit that I think would be perfect for the festival of lights:
1. Salwaar Kameez
I really love this yellow, purplish violet and red number. Red and yellow are the colors of the flame and thus symbolize the diya or light. So this is what I eventually chose. I also love the brocade on the yoke. I love the cut and style too. But it's the color combination that makes it the perfect outfit for Diwali.
Next I needed to find something for my feet. I was looking for party sandals. I came across two that I really liked. One was gunmetal and the other gold. So I naturally leaned towards the gold. I feel it will look better with this salwaar. Since the salwaar also has some gold trims. This is what I picked:
I prefer to carry a small clutch when I go out for parties or functions. There were a lot of evening clutches in the store. But when I saw this "solar - clutch", my heart sort of skipped a beat. It was love at first sight. I love the small gold dials or sequins. I think it looks different.
4. Finger Ring
I love wearing rings. Since my dress is quite colorful, I don't want to go overboard with the accessories. I want to keep that simple and elegant. So I chose this ring from the Nakshatra collection. There were many intricate designs. But I like wearing rings with broad bands. So I opted for this:
In keeping with the minimalist yet elegant rule, I chose this bangle. I love the design- feminine and contemporary:
I think these danglers would look good with the dress.
I think Estee Lauder's Pleasures would be perfect for the occasion.
Think I'm ready to spread the light:) What say??
Anyways check out their site over here and let me know, if I did make the right choice.
