Hey you beautiful people! Its Diwali tomorrow, my favorite festival. Diwali ,the festival of lights ,the day we are with our family and friends ,bursting a few crackers ( shagun ke liye :p ), helping ourselves to the amazing home made sweets, playing cards , decorating our homes with beautiful diyas and colorful lights and obviously dressing up in our newly bought ethnic attires. All these small small things together are what makes diwali even the more exciting and special. I think Diwali isn’t just celebration of one day , its the whole package of tiny steps and preparations which are done on the days preceding Diwali ,to make it one memorable day , as it happened on the day Ram and Sita returned from Vanvas.
Off late all of us have realized the harmfulness of bursting crackers ,the noise and air pollution and also the distress to the animals. More and more people today are adapting ways of celebrating diwali in a more peaceful and eco-friendly ways, enhancing and deepening the bonds between our dear-ones.So this diwali , I did a few DIY things to make it lasting and meaningful which i would like to share with you all. Hope you enjoy and like it as much as I enjoyed putting it up.First and foremost, getting ready for diwali… A very important issue in everyone’s life , which needs to be resolved as soon as possible. Because we all want to look the best version of ourselves 😉 . But soon after , the next question that comes to our minds is when and where will we wear it again?
Here is what I did… I made this beautiful yellow tasseled crop top , all decorated with mirrors and teamed it up with navy blue lehenga which I already owned. The bright yellow , mirrors and colorful tassels give the outfit the perfect amount of glitz and glam required for that oomph factor on Diwali. For jewelry I wore colorful pom-pom earrings ,again DIYed , with gold rings and bangles. All in all you have a modern ethnic diwali outfit ready.
Next I collected all my special memories and printed them out. Who says the lights are only to be put up outside the house. This Diwali lets light up our rooms with some essence from the past.
And last but not the least ,diyas… I painted mine with gold acrylic paint and put them together to give it a rangoli feel.
And the best part , the crop top can be used again as a normal crop top with jeans or as you want to style it.
