Firstly wishing each one of you Happy Diwali & a prosperous new year! I sincerly apologise for this late post, but I was caught up bringing in the new year with my family here in California.
Since everyone is on their toes through the week by preparing for D day, we all celebrated over the weekend and so here is the quintessence of my attire ! Well, it’s been really chilly over here and I’ve been palpitating all through the shoot.
I kept my look quite simple and old schooled. But it is always good to make use of the old clothes you have. This is a Pakistani style salwar, which I created using my mom’s old pure silk saree. It also kept me really warm. The outfit has zari thread work and handwork. The colour is a fresh lush, grassy green which looks authentic on auspicious days. The rust golden pure silk dupatta matches with every colour and gives a rich look.
Loved the experience of being traditional on a holiday and spending time with my family & friends here in Cali!
Hope this year brings you’ll loads of happiness & success.
stay positive & blessed
