Diwali has always been a joyful and mirthful day for me. It is a festival of lights, love and fireworks. I have always loved the whole idea of Diwali preparation and celebration.
What is Diwali?
Diwali, an Indian festival of lights, gifts, sweets and love. The word Diwali means rows of lighted diyas. There are many legends associated with this festival. Diwali symbolises victory of good over evil. Lord Rama defeated Ravana and then returned to his homeland Ayodhya, after 14 years of exile. People of Ayodhya welcomed him by illuminating their village and house using diyas. In Jain’s, Diwali is the day when Lord Mahavira attained salvation.

What I wore this Diwali
The best part of Diwali is getting ready and visiting your relatives and friends. We have aa traditio of exchanging gifts on this festival. Diwali is a festival celebrated in India therefore what could have been better than an Indian outfit this day.
Diwali is all about vibrance, warmness and sparkle and shimmer. Keeping it vibrant yet subtle I wore a red kurti which had these tiny golden patches all over it. Paired it up with golden cigarette pants and slipped into blush pink mules. A big hug and thanks to my dear friend Rochna who gave this makeover to me.
