I don't remember if I've told you people this before but I'm pretty comfortable in my ethnic wear as well. For two years in college we had to restrict ourselves to the kurtas and patialas, so I think it grew on me in a good way. I often wear them from time to time, adding my own touch of funky and having some indo-western fusions etc. But Diwali is a time when everyone loves to adorn themselves in grand clothes etc. But I honestly don't see myself in this huge shiny anarkali type of thing, the only time I wore it was for a cousin's wedding. I usually stick to simpler clothes but go jazzy with the accessories and eye makeup.
This Diwali as well, I just kept it low tone and went for a subtle kurta and paired it with my favourite colour as a contrast. Also went for shiny bangles and wedges. I must say that amidst all the crackers that cousins and family bursted, I kept it just to light my favourite diyas and decorate the house. So that was fun!
