This is our first take on Feature Blog and it wouldn’t be possible without this super pretty woman – Vrinda Ranga, the winner of our festive look challenge! I have been fortunate to know her as a friend, and she simply defines what being sweet and adorable is! 🙂 ❤ And what makes us feel more connected to Vrinda is the same ethnic love she has.
Her effortless and cute ways to be all “desi” is what me and my sister loved the most! So here’s her say on ethnic fashion –
- What is your favourite or the most important element for a festive outfit like Navratri/Diwali?
The most important element for a festive outfit according to me are earrings. They are a piece of jewelry which let you play with the styles and patterns in which they can be worn. They add that zing to your outfit. According to me Beautiful earrings can let you change the look completely even with the same outfit. They are my go to accessory!
- Can you share with us the person (family, friends or celebs) who you look up to for ethnic dressing?
I look up to my mom and my elder sister for their ethnic dressing. They pair their accessories amazingly well with their outfits! My sister is fascinated by everything small in size and loves to play with colors. Her ‘Chotu’ accessories work magic! Whereas my mother loves to pair one chunky accessory with her saris AND…A big Bindi! I simply adore them both!
- Whats your take on going all “desi” with the outfits? Give us your ideal ethnic attire’s idea for just another day?
The most important thing about looking good is being comfortable in your outfits. Indian/Ethnic wear lets you be comfortable and not look right out of the bed. Going desi is the best fashion fix! My idea of an ideal ethnic attire for just another day would be a white Luckhnowi kurta paired with either blue denims or leggings and a pretty bandhej or leheria dupatta to go with it. AND not to forget.. small Jhumkis! 🙂
- Feel free to tell us what is it that you would like to see WMSM publishing for their next blog? A particular style, attire you would like to see my sister presenting during our next post.
I’d love to see some Rajasthani prints and patterns on WMSW. I’d love to see your sister sport a rajasthani kurti or a dupatta or anything that WMSW loves about the state or its capital.
- The brands that you feel have the best ethnic collection? alos, the places in India that come up with the best ethnic styles. (eg – jaipur prints, patiyala salwars etc.)
I feel brands like BIBA and Fab India have a great ethnic collection. Also, One can find the best ethnic styles coming from places like Benaras, Punjab (phulkari), Gujarat (kathiawadi, mirror and thread work), Jaipur and Jodhpur, Rajasthan ( Block print, Bandhej, Leheriya, gota patti etc), Luckhnow (Chikan and thread work), Kashmir (pashmina and kashmiri kadhai).One can pride oneself on having a great ethnic wardrobe if they have pieces from these places.
Dear Vrinda, here is a big big thank you for your constant love and support towards “What My Sister Wore”! We couldn’t be happier to have you for our challenge round and also, today for the feature blog! 🙂
Lots of Love to you and our readers who were a part of the challenge! We hope the desi love for festive occassions grows heaps and bounds! :*
