Deepavali Greetings!

Happy Deepavali/Diwali to you and yours! 

It's that time of year again - where new frocks are don, kesari is whipped up and oil lamps are lit around the house. This year, the Festival of Lights brings extra joy - on the weekend, my partner-in-crime and always (un)willing photographer S, asked me to marry him! 

We have since been overwhelmed with well wishes near and far and we are still basking in the fantastic news. I look forward to providing plenty of details in posts to come. 

Back to topic, it is tradition to wear new clothes today - a small challenge for the (somewhat) frugal! Fortunately shopping my closet produced this unworn Zara dress purchased during their not-so-recent sale - happy days! 
In any case, please pardon the poor quality photos - Deepavali falling on a week day meant we had no opportunity to venture outdoors for daytime photographs.

The engagement necklace hooray!
J Crew Collection Cashmere cardigan, Zara dress, Karl Lagerfeld belt (sim), Tiffany and Co necklace and pendant, Plush fleece tights,  Calvin Klein Isabella boots. (sim)

May you all have mouths full of sweets, houses full of lamps and hearts full of love this day and for days to come.  

தீபாவளி நல்வாழ்த்துகள்!!!
