Torn between the urge to spend and the need to stick your budget this Diwali? Check out our shopping wish list for premium and bargain items this festive season.
If you are looking for new accessories to spruce up your Diwali get-up, we’ve hand-picked watches, bags, shoes and more that you’ll love. Whether you are on a budget or up for blowing your Diwali bonus this festive season, we’ve got you sorted out.
Splurge: If you’re looking for a silver clutch, there’s nothing worth picking up more than this gorgeous Odel bag. We love the intricate metal work on the body and the encrusted clasp on top.
Save: Don’t want to spend an exorbitant amount on a clutch for the festive season? You can still get a pretty, blingy one with this sequined clutch from Toniq. And, if you get tired of carrying it, sling it across your shoulder with the thin metal strap.
On your wrist
Splurge: If price is not an issue, you won’t mind picking up this beautiful bangle from www.velvetcase.com. The diamond strip in the middle is what makes it as expensive as it is.
Price Rs1.5 lakh
Save: Want to make the same kind of statement without spending the same sort of money? Head to an Avon representative to pick up the Amyra Bangle. It’s a dazzler, but won’t burn a hole through your wallet.
Paint the town red
Splurge: Want to paint the town red? Pick up this tulle paneled anarkal from Michelle Salins. The velvet, embroidery, pearl and hand beaten zardosi add to its luxury quotient.
Save: There’s no reason you can’t look gorgeous in red just because you can’t afford the above. Pick this pretty red kurti instead from Reliance Trends. The sheer sleeves and design on the neck make it a great festive pick.
Best foot forward
Splurge: These shoes from NineWest are not only comfortable, they’re extremely pretty. The low heels are a simple black that will go with any outfit for the season and the little silver embellishment makes them party-ready.
Save: Want to rock the black and silver look? Yebhi.com has the perfect pair of shoes for you. Also low heels with a back strap so you can walk comfortably, these are a good choice when you’re on a tight budget.
Splurge: Don’t forget that you need a pair of pretty dangly earrings to really rock a Diwali look. We love these red, shiny dangles from Vollya.com.
Save: You’ll not only save on the price with these earrings, the dangles will match almost any outfit, so you’ll also save on having to buy different jewellery for different outfits. Pick these up from Juvalia and You India.
