This outfit is dedicated to our contest winner, Nagalakshmi's childhood memory.
In her words, 'Diwali was always about homemade crunchy snacks (less so about sweets in our home, surprisingly). The women would get together well before dawn and start, the girls would have an oil bath and be dressed in gorgeous silk skirts and blouses with jasmine flowers in their hair. We were neither among the hardworking women or the chitchatting men, but in this wonderful no mans land checking out the latest movies being aired on TV and trying to get to the ripe guava on the tree in the front yard. Post lunch was always a satisfied tired lull when we got out of the now wrinkled new clothes and back into the comfortable cottons. Those days are forever gone but memories will remain'.
How beautifully this sums up what festivals mean to children, a sense of joy, carefreeness, fun and more fun. Which is why we are such advocates of comfortable cotton clothing, even for occasion wear. This outfit sums up festivity, fun, comfort and room for free movement for us. The little details like the handwoven temple border, the handmade bright cheery tassels, they all add up to rootedness and yet so.much.cheer!
Super comfortable and chic lehenga and blouse set made with cotton handwoven in Andhra Pradesh and completely lined with 100% cotton
The blouse has a tie up detail at the shoulder and adorable tassel details with a swing top like silhouette making it rather roomy and fun.
The lehenga comes with an elasticated back and zipper on the side for ease of wear. The tassels are detachable which means you can use them as hair accessory or on any other outfit for some fun!
There’s a pocket detailing on the lehenga to ensure there’s some place to hide all that mithai sneakily!
