So, yesterday was Diwali and I am really excited about it as always. Since I woke up late to enjoy the day in my own style, I was clueless of what to wear. I procrastinate shopping in the hope that I will not waste money but I always end up shopping!
So, there’s a shop at DT City Centre, IT Park, Chandigarh and I went there even before I took a bath. I saw their Diwali collection and it was average. They had sequined kurtis which they asked me to pair with chooridaars or plazzos but somehow I wasn’t convinced. The Kurtas were in the range of Rs. 3000, the plazzos started from Rs. 1200, the chooridaars from Rs. 800 and dupattas from Rs. 1200. So, I realized that my average spend is going to be atleast Rs. 5000 for Diwali or zero if I decide to not buy anything!
But I was already there and wanted to feel ecstatic for the entire day in a new dress, shallow I know, but Diwali just comes once in a year, right? 😉
I looked at multiple things and then came across this a little old model which all of you would have seen sometime or the other in W promotions. It was for Rs. 9000 but since it was old stock, they were giving it at a 50% discount!
I bought it and wore with my beautiful Karigari earrings and Charles and Kieth wedges. For my make up, I just used my favorite Sunheal Sunscreen, The Body Shop BB cream, Lakme Iconic Kajal in black and Maybelline Peach blossom lip balm.
Lastly, I hope you had a great Diwali. Do share your experiences!
