By all means I’m thoroughly enjoying the Indian festive season which kick started three weeks ago. And I’m glad I started my own Ethnic Series to have a mini celebration here on my blog itself. The blogs under Ethnic Series are so well received and appreciated by my readers and all of this makes me feel accomplished. The sole purpose of starting this series was to share Indian culture with my international readers. Thanks to each one of you who read the culturally inspired blogs and shared their valuable thoughts and feedback.
Talking about Indian culture, last weekend, we got to celebrate Karwachauth, one of the most anticipated festival for married women in North India.
It’s so amazing to see how all the ladies dress up in their finest attires and despite their hectic work schedules they all take out time to perform the elaborate rituals that are called for on that special day. And all this while they are fasting for good 15 hours ( or more sometimes). And they all start their day before sunrise on Karwachauth !
This article was conceived while I was looking through my previous year’s Karwachauth pictures in August. All the beautiful ladies and their Indian dresses inspired me to write about some outfit ideas for Indian festival season. You may think this is a bit late but we still have Diwali coming up on November 11th. So this article has two purposes: First it will give you a glimpse of what my friends wore on Karwachauth this year and secondly you will get some outfit ideas for your upcoming Diwali celebrations.
Be prepared to see lots and lots of pictures. I love this article for various reasons. My favorite reason is that I didn’t have to dress up in different attires to get all these pictures. I’m sharing my friends pictures. These may not be the best quality pictures ( because they are all impromptu pictures intended to be taken for the sake of memories). To me they are the ‘real housewives’ wearing all those gorgeous attires.
Sarees : I just realized while compiling these pictures that pink is the most preferred color – I don’t know why but yes it is !!
So what do you say about the above outfits?
I have more pictures to share which I will definitely share some other time.
Stay tuned for more Diwali blogs.
Until next time, keep it stylish !
