Stage 1: “I still have plenty of time to get my Diwali outfit in place. Seven days are enough to get it stitched!”
Stage 2: “Okay! 4 days now. It can still work out. I’ll just go to the mall and pick something off the rack.”
Stage 3: “So, Diwali is tomorrow! Hmm… I’ll just carry a heavy dupatta with my old anarkali.”
Stage 4: “Damn!”
As excited as we all are, there are certain reasons why our festive wardrobe isn’t already in place.

A bright dupatta can instantly take your outfit from nay to yay! Another plus side? A dupatta loves all - no matter the size, no matter the shape! Take inspiration from Anushka Sharma, if you will.
