Festive Season Is The Reason


Happy Diwali Happy Diwali f4 Happy Diwali Happy Diwali Happy Diwali

There is really no festival like Diwali. The festival not only illuminates our home but also showers us with gifts, relatives (who make time to come and visit) and loads of sweets (did I mention my love for kheer?). To dress up for so much fun is another task! Isn’t it? So out came my favourite anarkali. I know that we’re supposed to wear something new on this day but the new things I bought were far away from anything traditional (blame it on H&M!).

So this look is all about the regal vibes. Since the outfit in itself is so dressy with all the different kinds of work on it, I chose to go with just a pair of statement jhumkas. That’s all the accessory this look needed! A pair of my current favourite footwear (yes, I’m obsessed with juttis!) completed the look with ease.

So share with me how you celebrate Diwali and most importantly, what did you wear?!

Since we’re about to dive into the festive season (not to mention the grand wedding season) here are some ethnic inspiration you can grab.

1. All shine

2. Embellished elegance

3. Busy prints for the win

4. The cape story

5. Sari not sorry

6. All-white everything!

The Diwali campaign that got your massive love and support in 2015 is back! Last year, you all really made a big difference by pledging to #BeTheirSuperhero and sharing your own pet’s pictures and the love you have for your little best friends. This year, as Diwali is just around the corner, we bring out the big guns (rather the cute guns) and urge you to celebrate this festival of lights, noise-free.

Last year, the dogs had a special message for you’ll and this time us (the dog owners and the dog lovers) have a message for our four-legged superheroes who’re in our homes or even outside on the streets! For all the times they were our superhero…we thank them and pledge to step up our game this Diwali and be their shields!

Make sure you share the video and spread the word so like last year, this year you #BeTheirSuperhero too!

Thanking all the dogs and the dog owners who came together to be a part of this campaign and everybody who actually cares for our little fellas during Diwali. Wishing you all a joyous Diwali!

Big love!

I promised you all that The Hippieque is coming up with a Diwali campaign soon, and here I am keeping my word. This Diwali, I will not tell you how to dress up, I will not tell you what’s trending in ethnic wear or even how to create an ethnic ensemble from your current clothes. But I will address the elephant in the room (or should I say ‘Dog’ in the room). Every year countless number of animals get affected during our festivities of Diwali. Among them is the man’s best friend. But what is a man doing to comfort them that day?

Every year while we are getting ready for the festival of lights,
We forget to notice our dog’s plight.
We see their remorseful eyes but we shrug it off with a cuddle
And the poor dog is left all alone in this hurdle.
They hide under the bed or curl away in a corner,
They still wag their tail for the happiness of their owner.
A sound of a cracker makes them scared for their life,
With disorientation, deafness, loss of appetite, how will they survive?
We have no right to call ourselves a dog lover or an animal person
Till we do our bit for this impact to lessen.

So make the right choice here and make Diwali what it’s really meant to be – a celebration of lights and not devastation of animal lives. Because you know, if the roles were reversed, they’d do it for you!
#BeTheirSuperHero

PS: HAPPY DIWALI everyone! Thanking all the 11 dogs and their owners for their support. And thanking every one in advance who choose to #BeTheirHero this Diwali.
