I’ve been swamped with work lately and I’m literally counting days till my Diwali break. I’m off to Calcutta with ze mother & bhabhi, (both rulers of my heart and life) for some delectable wedding shopping.
My last Diwali at home! Just that tiny thought drags me down memory lane of my family’s most auspicious, most treasured festival. Thankfully, I’ve got all the exciting Diwali shopping to deal with just around the corner to distract me from the lump in my throat. In ode to all the sparkling new outfits my dad bought me every year on Dhanteras and all the ladoos I stuffed in my mouth right after, I decided to really dress up this year with everything I had.
What does a modern, working-woman look for in today’s day and age in her ethnic wardrobe? Elegance, agility, and the perfect balance of contemporary with traditional. Luckily, I found all of the above at Max’s festive collection. I’ve been repeatedly telling my mum how I prefer stocking up on lighter outfits for my trousseau to enable myself to transition or dramatize more easily, and this ensemble hit just the right chord to that thought.
Current life situation. Daughter, fiance, entrepreneur and blogger. All actively consuming roles – in no order of preference whatsoever. My life in the last 8 months has been a rollercoaster – exciting, exhilarating and making me slightly motion-sick. But one thing that this phase of life has taught me – is to adapt. To be fluid in nature, to embrace new life-altering changes with grace and most importantly – to smile through it.
