Festive Finds: The must have list

Divaly is almost 2 months old. Boy, have Vasudha and I had a good time. We have always maintained that we wanted our family and friends to be a part of our journey. So to kick off this festive season we are going to have our very first guest post written by Priyanka Bhansali – fashion stylist and writer from Pune, India.

Priyanka and I met at a wedding. We really hit it off and quickly bonded over our love of fashion. Honestly, you should stay away from her – she knows all the best deals and exhibitions happening in and around Pune and you can only imagine what that does to me!!!

To kickstart this festive season, we thought why not have the must haves for the season? Read on what you must have in your closet !!

Priyanka : – When I was asked to do a guest post for Divaly about whatever I felt like sharing or contributing, my one and only thought and eagerness to talk about was about letting all you fashionistas know the best finds for the upcoming festivities. There’s a plethora of fabulous finds across the web and I have managed to pick up the best, (believe me, it wasn’t easy! Phew!) right from dresses to shoes.

Here’s the list below that will help you get your hands on the best of the trends. So, move over from the usual, these fresh trends are the ones to watch out for!

1. Krishna Mehta tunic with Palazzo – With palazzo’s trending all over, this pick from Krishna Mehta was an obvious choice.
