Hola my beautiful people,

How have you been? Firstly, Happy Navratras everyone. And yes, the weather has taken a turn. I do feel the air changing into lovely autumn fragrance. The evenings are so very festive, so very celebration types…
I have not been keeping a little well and hence, was not able to update much. But now, you will once again see a lot more action on the blog, especially during the festive season and that means till Christmas…
I have lots of friends who are die hard western attire lovers. But when it comes to Navratras, and especially the dandia nights, they want to turn a little ethnic too. And they always ask how they can add a little ethnic touch to their outfit without making much of an effort.

Recently, I came across this neo designer in Lucknow. I call her neo because I really like how she gives a new twist to ethnics and traditional stuff. Shikha Suri of Carnations has already been loved by you all on ‘O Womaniya’. And while checking out her collection, my heart fell for an outfit which was just a perfect amalgamation of ethnic and modern, perfect for these Navratras.

Presenting the first Navratri look,

Ikat and Cotton Maxi Dress by Carnations

Now many of you would be surprised to see a maxi dress as a Navratri outfit. After all, most people prefer either saree and lehngas or suits. But what about those who don’t wear traditional stuff as all? And then, Navratras is also about breaking the moulds and being happy in our own strength… hain na.
The maxi dress is truly gorgeous and perfect for those navratri parties and even the dandiagarba nights. The turquoise blue glazed cotton is perfect for this changing weather, while the little ikat addition on the collar and the panel at the bottom gives this maxi dress a classy look. Have a look at this click.

And for all those who are thinking why I called this dress perfect for dandiya is because of the fall and flare it has. The ankle length maxi dress gives your twirls a beautiful feel to make you dance like a pro, without worrying about anything in this world. Just add some makeup, a pair of gorgeous earrings, tie your hair up and you are ready to take on the night.
