Hi guys, I thought since I took so many pictures of it, I would share my Eid outfit of the day with you all. Eid was last Thursday, and as always it was a bit of a dressy affair for my family and I. I guess because it is such a celebration, it is always nice to dress the part and take family pictures together. This year I designed my dress, and my mum made it come to life for me. She is pretty special and I am so appreciative of having someone with her skills in my life.
The dress I went for was black with antique gold/bronze. I bought the black and gold material first which I used for the skirt of the dress, and I thought it would look really nice paired with black velvet material. I love how my mum made the skirt, I told her I wanted a full skirt that was princess like, and so she added pleats to help make the dress puff out a little from the waist down. Initially we weren’t going to add a belt, but I felt like the dress needed a little something to help bring it together so she added a sash at the waist for me which I was able to tie in a little bow at the back.
For accessories I left it really simple, on some Eid days I go a little overboard with the costume jewellery but this year I wanted to strip it back a little. I love this little black and gold embellished clutch bag I picked up from Accessorize about a year ago, it is so beautiful and compliments so many of my Indian dresses and sarees. I felt it matched the dress really well, now I just need to pick up a white and silver version!
For jewellery I paired the dress with a few pieces I picked up from Green Street, London, which is a hub for South Asian fashion. I love these gold earrings, especially as they have a tear drop shape and a little pearl drop. For my bangles I went for two pairs of simple black and gold bangles that were quite chunky on my wrist. I also wore a necklace that I haven’t done a close up of, but it was dainty gold chain that I borrowed from my mum as we thought it would look really nice resting on top of the velvet. Not just in an Asian wedding, but the addition of accessories in any situation is important. It makes any outfit stand out even more. Who doesn’t want that? To understand it’s importance, learn this here now. You’ll see what I mean about how jewellery can make any outfit, no matter what you are wearing.
This was a bit of an impromptu post for me, I didn’t think I would be doing an outfit post but I am glad I did as I love how this look turned out. Let me know if you would like to know what I used for my makeup look. Let me know if you liked my Eid outfit of the day, and if you would like to see more posts like this. Speak soon, Tanzina x
