Festive Fashion -Part 2
Welcome back to my Fashion page and thanks a ton for returning!
The festive season is here and being a Bengali, Durga Puja is that time of the year when we commemorate and embrace Indian fashion with full might. Well, that doesn’t mean that for the rest of the year we shun the gems of Indian artistry in clothing, but the festive season gives us a little more time, energy and opportunity to explore, experiment and celebrate our culture.
Since I will be busy with the festivities, I will keep my posts short.
But before my first look for Durga Puja 2018, I wanted to share a quote by Indian Designer Anamika Khanna, which I happen to bump upon accidentally and kind of related to her thoughts.
Dress details: For my first look, I chose an asymmetrical olive green dress from Ethnicity. The dress is a little over-sized for me, which was a conscious decision, I loved the flowing material and its super comfortable for that exhaustive sleep deprived, pandal hopping. I teamed the big dress, with sleek shoes from “Charles and Keith” in black. I also wore a beaded turquoise blue Boho neckpiece, which is an old gem in my jewellery box, and an often go to accessory. I am carrying a pretty sling bag from "Hidesign", its a gift from a dear childhood friend.
"Debdatta, if you are reading this, I loved the bag, thank you love."
Face details: I have applied a base of “Ultime Pro from Faces Canada” and was happy with the coverage. Then some “Mac bronzing powder” along with “Wet and wild highlighting powder” and finally some “Sephora Sweet on you blush”. For eye shadow, I used matte brown shade from Maybelline Nude pallete, and heavy winged eye lining using “Maybelline New York Eye Studio”. I mixed colours on my lip as well, Coffee brown from Maybelline nude collection and a vibrant orange from Mac.
