| Sangeet Look |
With the Shaadi Season in full swing, the task of deciding outfit for each of the functions is really daunting. With various outfit options available for Mehandi and Wedding Ceremony, Sangeet takes a back seat. It’s really tricky to decide an outfit for Sangeet, as you want something that makes a statement, at the same time, you want something that is light, flowey and easy to move in because of all the dancing you need to do!
I came across Ek Dori, a dream project by my friend Abhilasha, who also happens to be a fashion and lifestyle blogger. Her aim is to promote Indian handicrafts and old dying techniques. Through her initiative she also helps women who face domestic violence at their homes by providing them livelihood and making them independent. She also shares her journey about starting her brand, her ups and downs on her Youtube Channel.
For the Sangeet Look I decided to pick up this red dress in South Indian Cotton with vintage hand-embroidered yolk. I paired the red dress with mustard yellow South Indian Cotton Pants. I wanted to keep this look fuss free and light to allow movement. To give definition to waist, I added a black leather belt. I am obsessed with this leather belt and I picked it up from my local market just for INR 100. I added a vintage hand-embroidered potli bag, little details like these make so much difference to the outfit.
I went for a bright red lipstick and tied my hair in a low bun.
Red dress with Vintage Embroidered Yolk : Ek Dori | Green Vintage Potli Bag : Ek Dori | Black belt : Local Market (INR 100) | Red Earrings : Sarojini Nagar (INR 100) | Red heels : Ajio
Though this look is really simple and unique, it does make for a head turning look due to the bright red hue of the dress, vintage embroidery and the polti bag. It’s all in the details.
