The best part left about festivals in general is not only the feast part but also the fashion element that is inherently accompanied by the so many festivals that cajole the calendar for a slot out of 365. The Earth has taken one full round around the sun and the time has come to prepare for the Eid ul Adha – the 2nd largest Muslim festival celebrated by many friends and followers of OneTimeFashionista. This blogpost is dedicated to them so that they prepare well in advance to set the vogue standard this Eid.
Team OneTimeFriashionista has gone international this time to take the style inspirations to another level. Flanked by the adept Rita Santana Photography behind the lenses and Lisbon make-up artist Catarina Santiago, Team OneTimeFashionista descended into the Jardim da Estrela in Lisbon, Portugal to share with you inspirations of style around a saree wrapped around you this Eid.
One can never feel sorry to wear a Saree and for this occasion, I chose the Flamingo by Shubhani Talwar. This white chiffon saree in Alicante inspired print with running gold dabka and with borders embroidered with pearls kept the elegance aroused with a perfect viscose satin printed blouse for which I designed the cut and stitch like I do for all my blouses. To pace things royal and timeless, the necklace from TribeByAmrapali was my preferred choice because it is best worn formally with a minimalist saree like this or with a burgundy or black evening gown with off-shoulder details for example.
Wearing my hair in a side ponytail, I finished out the look with my go-to party wear bag brand- a pearl adorned Lovetobag Clutch and a pair of kundan bangles by TribebyAmrapali.
The style mantra of this Eid look was to keep the look elegant and subtle. Call it my Coco Chanel fetish but this humble chiffon Saree, the giant pearls embedded in antique gold polish necklace and a red-mouth-do just painted an incredibly simple yet chic fashionista profile.
So there you go gal, going to Portu-gal or not, try out this look this Eid and remember that faith to each but festival to all and fashion to enthrall. Eid Mubarak in advance, have a happy Eid!
