The Background

These days, I look a lot at the background of images. Backgrounds can be very interesting. As a fashion blogger, I prefer a grey background, they are the best, better than white. But besides highlighting the outfit, they do not really serve much purpose.

Maybe I am growing up. Maybe I am thinking too much. Whatever it is, I have started looking around. In this post, besides the outfit of my sister, it is the background that amazed me. And you won't even guess what it was once. Till a few years back, it had no door and two of our cows lived happily in it. I remember feeding them every evening. I used to stare them, wondering if they found something delicious. 

So that was about this background. What about you? What background do you like while getting your fashion pictures clicked?

Not Thrown Out

We all think of doing some wardrobe cleaning every weekend. And then we procrastinate. And then the next weekend, we procrastinate again. But when we do take the plunge one fine day, we see a huge pile of things lying before us. Some of them, we had almost forgotten, other we no longer need.

Growing up, I used to wait for my elder cousins to clean their wardrobes because that meant I was going to get something. At times I was even ready with a script to talk them into believing that they no longer need a certain blouse or are better off not wearing a certain colour. If any of my cousins is reading this, yes, what I said was a whole bunch of bullshit and none of it was even remotely true :)

I admit I was not that lucky most of the times. But when I did get lucky, the joy was there for everyone to see. It was as if I hit a jackpot or something, as if I got something pretty just because I could talk endlessly, because if I laid my eyes on something I got all Woody Allenish till I got it. Once I got it, I was calm.

The sequined top that I am wearing here, it has a similar story. A friend of friend gave it to my friend during her wardrobe cleaning. And then my friend was almost going to throw it out! But I came just at the right time, and rescued this sequined beauty. Today's it is one of my most treasured possessions.
