For Deepavali, it is tradition that we wear new clothes. I love this sort of a tradition, I mean, which girl doesn’t like an excuse to shop?! 😀
Deepavali also means, going to the temple, visiting family hence a lot of travelling and lots, & lots of eating! Here’s what I wore;
Top, pants, bag, slippers & ring: Bazaar at Bukit Jalil.
Bangles: Bollywood Accessories, Brickfields.
This year I opted for a light blue outfit, staying true to my Indian mermaid self 😉 The kurta top with goldish-bronze embroidery work in front was perfect for the weather as it wasn’t too warm. I got the top (after bargaining) for RM30.
The harem pants, was actually something I bought the year before at the same bazaar but never wore so technically it was new as well. It was a plain white free size pants, with pretty paisley designs. Again, super comfortable to wear for all that travelling;
Now my favourite part, the accessories! The bangles are a mix and match from my older collection of bangles. The best part about bangles are you can always just remove or add on new colour and types to make it work. I have quite a big stack, so I usually just work around with those I already have 🙂
The ring is probably one of best buys I got this Deepavali at the bazaar. At Rm10, this beautiful ring reminds me of the kollam design which gives this modern accessory a tradition twist;
This is my favourite find this year, a ethnic Indian paisley designed handbag for RM10. Yes, RM10 for this gorgeous unique piece! I wish I had bought a few more colours as this is such a steal!;Slip on flats, with embellishment to add a little festivities to my feet! This was also purchased at the bazaar from a year back or so;
& as for my make up, I keep it as minimal and as natural as possible because I knew a whole day out meant a lot of sweating. I used the basics for skin, eyeliner (it’s a must for every Indian girl 😉 ) & nude lipstick from Stage.
My pottu was from Urban Aura Signature 🙂 May millions of lamps illuminate your life with endless joy,prosperity,health & wealth always. Wishing you and your family a very Happy Deepavali!
Lots of love, peace & rainbows from the Indian mermaid of Deeper than Fashion
