During my childhood days, I was crazy about pujo shopping and would end up buying at least 20-25 dresses. There was a competition with my sister and I would want more than her, even if it was just one more dress.

Back then, pujo shopping wasn’t a round-the-year affair like now. We would go round and round Vardaan Market, AC Market, New Market and Sri Ram Arcade in search of new clothes, buying Bangkok stuff that was so much in vogue. After a while, my mom would give up, asking me to spare her the endless rounds and hand me the money.

Cheese & Hearts was one of my favourite shops from where I used to pick up great maxi dresses among other things. My mom’s designer friend Bani aunty also used to make me a lot of clothes, Westernwear and also lehengas.

But that craze is long gone, now I buy some things like jeans and get the rest made myself. I don’t shop much these days. Earlier I used to go out pandal hopping and wear new dresses on each day, changing several times. But now there’s so much crowd and besides the work pressure has made all of that things of the past. In fact, I am not even participating at this edition of the Amazon India Fashion Week because I have plans to travel and spend some time with my son. There is too much pressure. Fashion is a creative process and so I decided to avoid fashion week right after pujo.

WHAT TO WEAR:

Handlooms are very in. Go for fabrics like khadi. Striped handloom weaves, anti-fit silhouettes, sarees teamed with shirts/tees instead of a blouse would make for interesting choices. Palazzos and patialas are also in. Wear bright hues like reds, rose pinks, peaches, blues.

Try wearing flats to avoid shoe bites which can totally spoil pandal hopping plans. Sneakers are very popular these days. Your footwear must be comfortable. Fashion should be all about comfort. Walk, it will also serve as an exercise.

SHOSTHI: Go for a casual dress. Maxis or something with high slits, straight fits would work fine.

SAPTAMI: Palazzos with shirts/jackets/long shirts or tops are a good option.

ASHTAMI: This day should be reserved for sarees and ethnicwear.

NABAMI: This is the day when most people like to party. Opt for Westerns. Dungarees, shorts, gowns, short dresses with long jackets, one shoulders, anti-fit silhouettes all work fine.

DASHAMI: Again, reserved for ethnicwear. Salwars, kurtis or tees worn with patialas or sarees, they’ll all look good.

This puja, look casual, chic and sexy!
