Celebrating Dussehra with Heritage & Heirloom

Indian Bloggers

[dropcap]F[/dropcap]estivity is proclaimed in the atmosphere and everyone is indulged in the festive fervor infused in the air. Today, being the last day of Navratri, what else one can do than to add that intensity to the festivity and by exploring one’s ethnicity. Our OOTD post is all about celebrating Dussehra with oodles of spirituality, loads of ethnicity along with heaps of heritage and culture. Rather than adorning new clothes, we chose year’s old family heirloom to showcase our religious side.

The Style Symphony is all about ushering new fashion trends in front of our readers and portraying them with panache. But unlike our other posts, this OOTD post is quite close to our hearts as it reflects the optimum religiousness and reveals rich Indian culture. This Dussehra, TSS goes auspicious with hints of prosperity, and to reconnoitre the affair, a look loaded with gold was must along with a mustard saree.

Inspired with the classic South Indian temple attire, we have done the ensemble, on and around a mustard yellow Kanjivaram temple saree which is almost 29 years old but is well-maintained and looks as good as a new one (Thanks to its heavy thread count and quality). It’s burgundy and gold wide border and rich pallu adds loads of opulence to its jewel color and adequate glow to the wheatish complexion of an Indian woman.

To compliment this Kanjivaram classic, how could one settle down for less than pure gold! So, Maitreni is laden with ‘[highlight]all that glitters[/highlight]’ and all that’s the ‘[highlight]purest ray serene[/highlight]’. All of this jewellery is part of our family heirloom and is crafted intricately in South’s temple pattern, North’s rasrava work, Bengal’s filigree, etc in 22 K gold.

So, Symphonites what are you waiting for? If you wanna do your festivity in a more ethnic way, dig out your Mom’s or your Granny’s wardrobes and bijoux boxes to experiment with your looks in the optimum olden way— The Style Symphony way.

The Style Symphony loves to invest in sheer luxury! This 18 Karat gold and diamond Durga pendant intricately don with enameling (meenakari) is what we bought for ourselves during Durga Puja. 🙂

Happy Dussehra

Happy Dussehra! 🙂
