Diwali LookBook : Go Ethnic

Being a Bengali for us it’s Kalipujo that ushers in the Festival of light,Diwali . This festival is celebrated by worshipping Goddess Kali, the epitome of women power. For me the women empowerment has always been the major trait of Indian civilization, since time immemorial.  

Saree & Indian Nari (women) are the two words uttered in the same breath as an Indian woman manifests best clad in this traditional outfit . So in this festivity. I have draped myself in this Cotton Benarasi which my mom specially gifted me. It’s vibrant tinge and intricate  stitch work at once prompted me to try it and share with you through this post. Here I preferred to wear boat neck plain cut blouse to enhance the sophistication of the Saree
