Hello lovelies, How was your weekend? Festive season is in full swing and I had a great time celebrating Karvachauth and Halloween in one go 😛 This is that time of the year again when you take out all those pretty elaborate Indian dresses out from your closet. Anarkalis are still around; however, dresses with different silhouettes and lengths are more in trend these days. Rich fabrics such as raw silk, chiffons and georgettes win over net for me. Radhika and I thought that it would be a refreshing change to blog about Indian outfits this week starting with Karvachauth outfit.
Karvachauth is celebrated for husband’s long and healthy life in various ways among different ethnic groups. In Punjabi culture, we have “Sargi” in morning before the sun rises and then observe a fast with no food or water. For pooja, ladies sit in a circle and recite the story. And then we open the fast after seeing the moon and dear husband at night. Traditionally it’s observed by women but my husband was sweet enough to keep one for me 🙂 I think it makes sense, after all he’ll be bored if I am not around…right? 😛
I celebrated the day with my bhabhis and we all wore dressy Indian wear. It’s that time when women love to dress up for their husband, in classic traditional look. I wore a pretty pink dress on Karvachauth which was a slightly modern take on suit.
On this day women usually dress up in pinks, reds and maroons; the Suhag colors. I decided to go with baby pink this time. My suit was more like a flowy gown with attached dupatta and brooch. It was so comfortable that I did not feel tired by wearing it all day. I paired it with matching churis and hand harness for a more traditional look. You must have seen this harness in my work wear post (click here). Its brass but gold plated which gives it fine look. A bindi and some jewelry completed my look.
Here are some pictures from the day
