I've always believed that fashion is an extension to one's personality.It says a word or two about the kind of person you're,your likes and dislikes,hopes and desire,insecurities and joys.That's why I've never worn something I'm not comfortable with.Maxis are HOT this season,so are wide-legged pants.But I don't have any of them in my wardrobe.So,when I get up in the morning and get dressed,you can be sure of one fact-every piece of clothing or accessory on my body is so ME! And I love them to death.I'll do whatever it takes to keep them intact.But there're exceptions-some days when I get up and slip into something that I might not hate but I don't entirely like either.I try to look confident as if this is the best look I could have styled for today and I'm totally satisfied with the way it has turned out.But deep inside,my confidence lessens with every passing minute and after a few hours or so,I just want someone to rip that 'thing' off me because I'm better off without it.One such 'thing' is a pair of black pumps.Yes,back in my teenage,I've been obsessed with everything black-LBDs,black blazers,black vintage handbags,black chiffon saris(I still haven't totally got over it.:P)and so on.But lately,I dread anything black,specially anything black near my feet.But there're days when you just can't help it because black is safe and better go boring than bad,right?On such days,I wish I were Sonu or Jasleen or Tanvii or Karishma or Smrithi or Kavya,blessed with such fabulous wardrobes that you never,never run out of options!I had this Infosys seminar in college today which required me to wear formals.It was gonna be a sweaty affair,with almost 500 students packed in a 120-seater auditorium,with almost no AC on for hours.One of my favorite White shirts has been spoiled lately.I didn't want to spoil another one.So,I decided to wear this peach over-sized shirt with a slightly androgynous twist.Now,I'm not really fond of this shirt and I've worn it rarely.And whenever I've worn it,I've teamed it up with shorts and maybe a boyfriend blazer.The word 'strictly formals' in the notice from Training and Placement cell made sure that I keep my experiments at bay. So,I had to wear them tucked in,with my all purpose black trousers.Now I wanted to add a pop of color with a bright blue sling or a pair of blue pumps. But turns out I had bought the blue pumps way too long back and they don't exist any more.Then I raided my closet and found out that I don't have a blue bag at all!Then I thought of adding a little Indianness with my mojris or kolhapuris.I didn't want to wear the yellow kolhapuri,the brown-orange-blue one had to let go of its sole at that very moment,when I was about to clean it a little.The mojri just didn't go with that shirt.I was supposed to get out of my place within 7:30 and it was already 7:45!So,I was left with no other option but the boring black pumps!Aaaaaaaarghhhhhh!!!!!!!
