Wedding Season is here in full force! One of the things I LOVE about Wedding Season is picking out the outfit I want to wear and accessorising it with beautiful jewellery. I recently went to an Indian Engagement Ceremony and wore a Peachy toned outfit, perfect for the amazing weather we had When creating an outfit for an event such as a Wedding or Engagement, I still want it to be original and make it fun.
I bought this outfit a year ago and never got the opportunity to wear it. I live very close to Green Street in Upton Park. On Green Street there are 100s of shops that sell asian clothing, jewellery and shoes. It is an endless road of all the things you need for an asian event. I purchased this lovely outfit in a pop up store that was on Green Street. I saw this outfit and instantly loved it. It is a three piece set – you have the bottoms which are tight around the ankles, the salwar kameez and the mesh overcoat. I had never seen an outfit like this so I got it straight away. I really like the way the mesh overcoat flows. It is a fun outfit and elegant at the same time.
After you have selected your outfit, the hair, make-up and accesories are also an important aspect of the outfit. An outfit is incomplete without them. I decided to wear a headdress from ASOS that I got for a few festivals I went to last year. I felt it added a whole lot of sparkle to the outfit and helped with the hair style I wanted to go for. I also wore a round silver sparkly bindi that can be purchased at a large range of asian clothes stores.
I wanted my make-up to be fresh and dewy. I have MAC Studio Sculpt foundation on, I am really liking this foundation at the moment. It has amazing coverage and the gel in it has the most amazing dewy finish. I used the original Urban Decay Naked Palette on the lid and a pop of colour (fastball) on the lower lash line from the Vice 4 Palette. I kept the lips nude and glossy as there was a lot going on with the accessories and didn’t want to look too busy. I wanted fierce winged eyeliner and used my Inglot Gel Liner #77. I wore lashes to finish this look as I wanted it to be dramatic, I am wearing Eyelure lashes in 101 for volume. These gorgeous earrings were given to me from a friend. I love the mixture of white, gold and peal. They were perfect for this outfit.
The hair literally took me 10 minutes to do! It is easy and looks more complicated then it is. All you need is a headdress and bobby pins. You place your headdress on and check that you are happy with how it sits at the front. Take all your hair behind you and insert it all into the headdress until it is all rolled in. Your hair should now be up and rolled into the headdress. You now have to get your bobby pins and secure it in place. And VOILA! I like this hairstyle as it is easy and looks really elegant.
Now having a bag that fit your phone and all you make-up bits and bobs is key, as Indian Wedding events can be lengthy. I found this bag on Green Street in a shop called The Fashion Plaza. They sell a range of accessories, jewellery and clothing. I love statement pieces and this is definitely one. It is quite big on the inside and heavily embellished on the outside. The best part are the bells on the side that make a lovely sound. This was the favourite part of my outfit!
