I have paired it with a brocade blouse that I had self designed in 2009 for my sisters wedding. I absolutely love to mix and match.
I have side parted my hair. Tied it into a low side ponytail and then rolled up the hair into a sock bun on the side. Twisted the front section of hair and pinned into the bun. I do have layers in my hair as a result I had to use heaps of u-pins to secure my hair into the bun.
- I am wearing Mac foundation for face and body in shade C3
- On the eyes I have used a nudish-brown eyeshadow to give a natural look and open up the eyes. I have worn Savvy brown eyepencil (kohl) and Maybelline Colossal Volume Mascara.
- On the cheeks I have used my favourite Baked Blush by Lakme in the shade Day sheer.
- On the lips I have worn Mac Retro Matte Lipcolour in the shade Ruby Woo. Matte shades can be drying on the lips so ensure you wear a lip balm about 10-15 mins prior to applying the lipcolour. This will ensure you get an even smooth application and the lipcolour will not dry out your lips.
- Mum and Aunt's closets are a treasure for Vintage lovers.
- Old sarees if in mint condition can be worn with a modern twist- such as an innovative drapes, corset or noodle strap blouses.
- You can cut up old silk saree borders and get your local tailor to sew it up on georgette/ chiffon/ silk materials which are easily available in local cloth stores.
- You can get a salwaar kameez or skirt or a blouse or even a dress stitched up out of old dupattas/ sarees.
- Mum's old jewelry can be polished and worn over any of your traditional and western silhouettes. Vintage jewelry is trending this festive season.
I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed creating it for you. Mumbai to Melbourne wishes everyone a Safe and Happy Diwali.
