Glee and Lights 😍

Namaste People 🌷

#Diwali, the biggest and most important festival of Indian culture is round the corner, how could we not post a blog about it?

1

For those who are not aware about it, let us put some light on the festival of lights 😉

According to Hindu Mythology, Lord Rama defeated the evil Ravana and returned home on this day. Hence, every year during Autumn, Indians all across the world celebrate this day as a victory over darkness and evil. The festival extends to a five-day celebration, Diwali being the main, when people worship Goddess Lakshmi for prosperity and wealth. Diwali also coincides with the darkest, new moon night of Hindu calendar. The celebration mainly includes Rangolis, millions of lights and diyas (Lamps) shinning in every house and temple, family feasts, tons of sweets and fireworks. We are so happy that over the years people are being more responsible towards mother nature and the animals on the streets. We urge you all to please avoid the air and noise pollution by the fireworks.

We know what significance this festival holds for Indians. Dressing up in pretty ethnic clothes and family gatherings are some most important parts of the celebration, so here we are to share our ideas for this festive season.

For the first look, we picked one of Mum’s printed silk saree and stitched a Lahenga out of it and paired it with a Magenta colored dupatta. We wanted to create something off beat this festive season, and the color and print of the saree fits perfect for that. The silk material gives it a heavy look and hence we kept the accessories to minimal by adding a golden kada, chunky ring and earnings.

For the second look, we picked a high waist Palazzo pant in blue color and wore it with the same blouse (crop top) from the first look. This outfit is Apt for those who want to keep their look simple and chic. We call it ‘funky’ ethnic look. You can pick any plain or printed palazzo pant and team it up with a nice crop top or a blouse from a saree or lahenga, add some accessories and you are ready for the celebration.

Don’t have a blouse ready for the new saree you bought for Diwali?
Do you want to use that old saree in a different way?
Did not get the time to shop for the Festival yet?
Worry not!! We are here with a quick fix for you 😊

This one is our personal fav!! To get this look, all you need to do is wear a palazzo pant, a blouse/crop top (You can play around with the colors and prints) drape a saree around it and keep the pallu long enough to touch the floor. We picked a 3 Meter long Dupatta and used blingy border to give it a festive feel. If you are using a saree you can put pleats at the front (like we do in a half saree look) to use the extra length. It’s the ultimate solution for those who love wearing a saree but at the same time want something comfy and different. We highly recommend using quirky printed crop top and dupatta/saree for this look.

Hello Family!! Hope you all enjoyed the festive season 😘
For us, fall is the official season of colors and prints. Hence, we are back with yet another post where we would have some fun with a regular printed wrap around skirt that our mum made for us a few years back. Yes, you read that right!this skirt was stitched a few years back but we did not use it much until recently. You all know how skirts are trending these days, so we took out this piece and created 2 different looks.

People who work in corporate, and are also fashion lovers would know how difficult it is to select clothes everyday for office. It is really tricky to play with formal clothes. We don’t like wearing regular pant/skirt and shirt things and we are sure neither do you, so here is something interesting for you all. Pick a nice printed skirt (wrap around/ straight A line) and team it up with a plain formal shirt. Make sure you choose the colors well. Add a few accessories and you tie your hair in a chic way. Try to make a side braid, high pony tail or a high bun. We totally recommend print on print, but make sure you select the prints smartly.We picked the print and accessories in a way that we could create a perfect example of Ethnic+formal.

Well, weekdays and work wear is sorted now lets move to the weekends. Take the same skirt, or you can pick any full length or midi length skirt and pull it up to make a tube dress. This outfit allows you to use as many accessories, bangles, nose ring, armlets, choker you can wear all of them. You can skip the choker/necklace and wrap a scarf instead and to flaunt your curves you can wear a high waist belt. You are all set for a weekend outing/brunch with friends and family.

Did you think we forgot to talk about footwear? Nope, we did not. The reason we kept it for the end is because we want the footwear to be the Highlight in both these outfits. Heels would look good with both of them but if you don’t like being regular, you can wear gladiators just like we did. With the tube dress, you can wear kolhapuri flats and with the formal look you can try formal shoes.

Goodbye….

img_3183

Struggled throughout the night, kept looking at the window waiting for the sun to come out and shine.

The darkness started to fade, I put my old torn shoes and decided to go for a walk by the sea-shore.
6 a.m. in the morning, yet the place was full of people. Couples, friends, family, tourists, everybody looked so happy and fine. A small kid selling newspapers, a man asking people if they want to click a picture and make a memory, an old man requesting passersby to get their shoes polished so he can buy himself some food.

Some boats in the sea caught my eye and suddenly I felt my world coming to a standstill. Suddenly I wanted to turn blind towards all the happy faces around me and I wanted to turn deaf towards all the conversations and laughter around me. I felt envy and rage.

Hundreds of people around me, yet I felt all alone, scared, legs trembling and body cold. A huge wave of agony came crashing towards me and I lost my balance. I did not feel sane anymore. The boats going farther away in the sea and I heard his voice. Those words that I was always afraid of hearing. His voice sharp and piercing.

‘Goodbye my love, its time for me to leave.’
and I felt my heart bleeding inside of me. I have seen movies and read books about love and heartbreak and all that pain of losing the one. But nothing can ever describe the void and misery that I feel within. Its like the lyrics left the music. Now the music is sad and incomplete for some, while for others it’s a beautiful melody.

And I stand there, wondering, what hurts more?
When a person leaves you without a single word, and you wait there at the edge of the cliff, not knowing what went wrong, why did he leave, where did he go, is he ever coming back?
OR, a person saying that most painful word, ‘Goodbye’? Is there anything good in a goodbye?

Destiny can be a bitch, I think to myself. Sure it has the power of taking apart two humans unconditionally and insanely in love with each other and throw them in two such corners of the world that they never see each other in their lives. But what it can never do is separate their hearts and souls.

I heard the words he never spoke, and cried the tears I never could. Miles and miles of sea for as far as I could look, the boats were gone, out of my sight.

‘Wherever you are, I hope you think about me just like I do’, I sighed. Closed my eyes and finally made peace with the fact that he is never coming back.

Love,
Arch ❤️
