What to do when you've nothing to wear for a festival

Welcome back to my blog guys! 

Deciding ethnic wear for a festival is one hell of a task for our generation. As I mentioned in my last blogpost that our generation is so much into western wear that we never think of buying Indian clothes to update our wardrobe. We only think of buying them when an occasion or festival is round the corner and that's the time we actually start to panic and our indecisiveness comes into picture! 

As Diwali and Bhai dooj are just a week away, I decided to give you ideas on deciding your outfits for both the festivals when you actually have nothing to wear and you don't even want to go out and shop or spend much.

Here are the ideas!


Yes guys you read it right. Indian mothers literally have so many ethnic wears even if she prefers to wear western. So this Diwali get inside your mother's wardrobe and select an outfit of your choice. Get it altered as per your size and Voila! You have your very own Diwali outfit now.

This suit has can-can inside. I just love flared skirts, gowns, lehengas and suits that's why I requested my mom to give me this one. 

You can buy this outfit from Central.

I paired this outfit with White earrings that has faux pearls.

I went for copper eyeshadow look with a touch of black  at the ends, nude lipstick and very basic makeup. Nude makeup look is my current fav so I tried the same with this outfit.

I teamed this outfit up with silver Kohlapuri chappals.

Go raid your mother's closet nowww!!!

hope you liked the idea and the outfit. 

Bhai Dooj

For Bhai dooj, I went for a plain black tank top with a urban print long skirt. 

I just had the plain black tank top with me which I'm sure each and every girl has in her wardrobe.
I bought this Long skirt online from Myntra for just Rs. 500. Yes, you read it right, just Rs. 500! I find online shopping very convenient, anything and everything you need is just a click away, plus Myntra's delivery is very quick.
This long skirt is from a brand called "SOUNDARYA" You can check out their collection by clicking 

I paired this outfit up with silver coined choker necklace that I bought from Dilli Haat and plain silver waterfall earrings. 
I went for basic makeup for this look.

Wore the same Silver Kohlapuris with this outfit as well.
Hope you liked the attire and the idea!

The Savior Outfit!

Here's the third outfit idea for you guys. You can try this one on Diwali as well as Bhai Dooj.

For this outfit, I took my old plain black Kurti, a pair of black jeggings and paired them with a fulkari dupatta that again I borrowed from my Mom.

You can pair almost any Dupatta with a plain black kurti and black leggings/jeggings. Be it yellow, blue, green, red, multicolored, BLACK colour just goes with everything!

Indian mothers have a variety of dupattas, so you can pick any one of your choice and pair it with plain black kurti and black leggings/jeggings. You can do the same with an all white attire as well.

If you want to buy a similar dupatta you can buy them here at a very affordable price.

Teamed it up with Silver watch and Maroon Jhumkas.
I kept the makeup same as the first outfit except the lipstick. Mixed two lip-shades for my lips; dark purple and brown. 

Wore Golden Kohlapuris with this Outfit. 

Hope you liked all three ideas. Share your pictures with me if you try any one of these.
