Lights, Colors a Lot more












Dress- Aarya, Clutch- Snazzy, Maangtikka- Designed by me,
Rings-Lokhandwala, Earrings- Stole from best friend's closet


Firstly, wishing you all a very Happy Diwali and a pleasant New Year. Hope you all had an amazing one filled with a lot of happiness. Every year I wait for Diwali 'cause this festival has so much to offer. All the pretty lights, colours, and another reason to go shopping.
I personally own very few Indian pieces and to be very honest, I am always confused when it comes to Indian wear.
I am always in awe of all the Lehngas and Anarkalis but whenever I actually step out to shop, it is difficult to choose just one, I end up liking a lot of it.
Since a long time, I wanted to own a dhoti style ethnic wear and I really love the way how the sides have a fall to it and it give a very fancy yet traditional look.
So I decided to hunt for one, this Diwali.
While i started shopping, one of the first stores was Aarya, in Lokhandwala Market. The guy started to walk me through their collection when I described him what I was looking for and then he pulled out this amazing attire of navy blue with beige (I had picked a similar shade for my Birthday night as well).
I was lovestruck and i knew i was going to be a proud owner of this one, though it came at a price.
I loved the colour combination and it had some beautiful golden work on it. It was simple yet classy. The beige bottom was so flowy and gave me a royal feel. For accessories, I wore a maang tikka as i wanted to keep the look completely Indian and stole these lovely earrings from my best friend's closet.











Saree gown- 5halfnmore, Cuff- Gift, Earrings- Forever21


Saree gown is something you resort to when you can't set your mind whether you want to go for Indian or western this festive season.
That is exactly what always goes down with me every year and finally I've been introduced to it by 5nhalfnmore which helped to westernise the look.
I wore it yesterday for BhaiDhuj and it was really comfortable and it gave a very lady-like feeling. Again, the colour worked well, pinkish-beige was something I've adored. I have noticed beige does wonders when put together with any other colour. It is very neutral and blends easily. I wore a cuff and earrings for the final touch. You can also see their collection on Instagram.
Do let me know what you wore for this Diwali and tag with #caughtinacuff. I hope these festivities bring a lot of joy in your lives and be sure spread some to others as well.

Love,
Riya
