This time of the year is super exciting because it's bombarded with festive parties, cocktails and weddings! As exciting as it is, figuring out outfits for all these events is always a task. Which is why I have developed a routine and pre-plan my looks way in advance to avoid the last minute jitters. I start with scouting my favourite websites and stores to start with my base. Depending on the occasion I pick between jumpsuits, maxi skirts, maxi dresses, anarkalis or lehengas! As soon as I came across this gorgeous maxi dress, I instantly knew this was going to be a part of my festive wardrobe.

Once that is out of my way, I then tackle the styling element. Because the dress was very classic and simple, it gave me an opportunity to bring out the masterpieces. I chose this gorgeous gold choker necklace with a stunning pendant. It worked in sync with the neckline of the dress which made it flow in harmony. The burgundy gem on the larger than life rain drop pendant added the perfect touch. The beaded detailing on this Azva choker in this gorgeous 22 karat gold makes it such a magnificent piece. The intricacy of the designs of all the Azva pieces always manage to cast a spell on me. Each piece is crafted so diligently using modern techniques but keeping the traditions intact, which is strikingly evident at every glance. I also chose this stunning cuff to enhance the look. The gems on the cuff matched the ones of the necklace which made it appear correlated. Again the detailing is what blew my mind and I could barely take my eyes off it! I was so happy with the end result that I decided to document this look and ultimately decided to wear it to my best friend's cocktail!

For my make up, I went with a dull gold eye shadow all over the lid and drew on a dramatic wing with my eyeliner to match the opulence of the look. Contoured my cheek bones for a flawless appearance and finished off with a touch of blush on the apples. I matched my lips to the dress which is one of my all time favourite combinations! I decided to go with simple pumps in a similar hue to streamline the look.

We Indians share this eternal love for Gold jewellery which is unlikely to fade in the near future. For us, there is so much more to it than just buying new pieces. It's a process that binds us in this endless tradition. One that we proudly call our own. Azva adds a modish touch to these traditional pieces making them the perfect blend for the modern woman. I can see these pieces surviving for decades in my wardrobe as I enjoy this beautiful journey of womanhood. I cannot wait to flaunt these gems again in yet another chapter of grandeur opulence. Until then hope you guys have a wonderful festive season and wish you all a very Happy Diwali and a prosperous new year!
