Feeling Like A Maharani !

Hi everyone,

As the Indian Festival of Lights is fast approaching, otherwise known as Diwali/ Deepavali, here in Singapore, many of my Indian friends are already busy preparing for this big occasion. Thank god that the pandemic is pretty much in control in Singapore and we can still meet in groups of no more than 5 persons. Therefore many are planning little get together luncheons, family gatherings adhering to the strict rules and definitely mask wearing but at least the festive mood will not be dampened by this horrible pandemic that has taken over the world literally!

So on this note, I decided for the first time to deck myself out in full traditional Indian garb as I have always loved colours and Indian style clothing has always been so vibrant and intricate with their embroideries and beading that it was definitely a look I had to style at least once in my lifetime on my blog.

Feeling every bit like a Maharani on the marble steps of the Taj Mahal, I donned on this Lehenga outfit above with a matching stole and I was literally blown away at how elegant I felt and moved and look in this gorgeous and stunning design by Ritu Pande. You can see more of her designs here on her website Ritu Pande Official and do note that she does ship internationally too. However if you are based in Singapore, she is showcasing now at The AC Raffles for the month of October 2020 and you can always get your items altered within a few days or customised orders may take 2 - 3 weeks.

I love how even the back of the blouse has such amazing detailing like the pretty bow which just adds that level of sweetness to this look.









Now, whilst many of us who are non-Indians do love and appreciate the finery of Indian traditional wear, however to invest in one for just one occasion may seem a little too much and often we do get invited to events which we would love to dress up for the occasion. So here I decided to showcase how you can stretch that dollar of yours in this investment piece and mix and match the Lehenga skirt with western style tops for a different look or perhaps for a different occasion - like year end festivities / Christmas party or new year get together. 

This time, I paired it with a fuchsia silk blouse and all the stunning jewellery you see showcased today on this blog post is by House of Rajput. Again, if you are based in Singapore, they are also hosting a pop up at The AC Raffles for the month of October 2020 for you to check out their gorgeous pieces for your year end outfit pairings or as Christmas presents. Seeing we cannot travel as easily to meet friends and family for the holidays, then why not pick out something pretty and unique from Singapore with love to send them - all over the world.





Finally, who says one can't wear a traditional Indian Lehenga as a casual maxi skirt? Well, here's another look to inspire you just pairing this amazing Lehenga with this cowl neck spaghetti strap top ( available at The AC Raffles) and pairing with a statement tribal style necklace from House of Rajput, I most certainly would wear this out to a casual brunch or lunch with friends. You can even style it down further with sandals instead of heels. Look at the pretty tassel as well on the skirt - for sure this outfit would be a show stopper and you will be stopped to be asked about this amazing skirt whenever and wherever you style it.

If you would like to see this skirt in its full action - check out my IGTV which I had posted on this look and on this pop up event. So enjoy and hope you will check out these amazing designs online or in store now.
