Caught in between?

but mostly purple mostly does the trick for me 😉


Colors determine our personality, our moods, our feelings…Our colour preferences is a key to understand our personalities. Character sketches exist for all the colours under the…rainbow whether it’s a red, saffron, green, or magenta…but wait…what if you’re not defined by any of them? Maybe a mixture…or a shade? Ever found yourself to be a compound?  Here’s a bit on “those” colours that you would probably relate to 🙂

Maroon: Think you’re a red mixed with a little bit of black? Then maroon is definitely your colour! It’s probably the harsh experiences the individual has faced that have matured the Maroon person into someone likable and generous, someone who has been battered by life but has come through. It indicates a well-disciplined Red personality, one who has had difficult experiences, dealt with stressful situations and has not come through unmarked but who has grown and matured in the process, learnt something new and worked upon his weaknesses!

Blue-Green: Confused whether you’re a bluish green or a greenish blue? Exacting, discriminating, poised and attractive, are a few major characteristics of a blue green individual. They tend to be sensitive, intellectual and refined, persevering and stable if rather detached. Blue-Greens have excellent taste, and are usually courteous and charming, capable but often refusing help or guidance. Thus they tend to be stand out in a crowd and may appear to be snobbish at times. But hey why not flaunt the talent when you have it in you!?

Pink: The colour that symbolises girls throughout the world! And now slowly has crept into the men’s wardrobe as well. This colour encompasses the more gentle qualities of Red, symbolizing love and affection without passion. Women who prefer Pink tend to be maternal or in other words “motherly”. Pink desires protection they need to feel secured in life, they demand special treatment and a sheltered life. Pink people appear delicate and fragile sometimes to gain affection and security that they desire the most! Pink people tend to be charming and gentle just as the colour seems to be to everyone as a whole.

Turquoise: Blue but more bright in shade? A little jhatang? As a shade of blue they contain most characteristics of a “blue person”. It’s interesting to know that it also shares the same characteristics of a Piscean. Complex, imaginative and original, Turquoise people drive themselves hard and may be in a state of turmoil under their outwardly cool exterior.

Brown: Mixture of orange and black? A Brown person has stamina and patience, tending to be very solid and substantial, dependable, steady and conservative. Browns are not impulsive and tactless but they love responsibility and are reliable and kind. If you chose Brown, watch out for a tendency to be obstinate and inflexible. You tend to be quite frugal, don’t like to waste money or time on unnecessary extravagances, but when you do spend, it is on quality. You are materialistic, appreciating quality in everything, a comfortable home, the best food and drink and loyal companionship.

Lavender: Coming from such a royal colour purple, the lighter shade mixed with a tinge of light blue, a lavender person is basically snobbish but in a sophisticated and charming way.  Also described as a person who lives “on a higher plane,” never notices anything sordid and is always impeccably and beautifully dressed. Lavender people may be on a continual quest for culture and the refined things in life, high and noble causes but without the necessity of getting their hands dirty. A Lavender person is usually creative, charming, witty and civilized.



Desi Girl with a twist ;)

The trends are changing desily 🙂


“Salwaar kameez? Oh my God! I will look like my mom!”

This would be the typical reaction of any fashion conscious girl. That myth no longer exists really, thanks to the recent times in colleges all over India. Funky and stylish college wear kurtis have definitely become the in thing for colleges everywhere. The dream of every college going girl is to look stunning and gorgeous, and what’s better than a simple kurti and jeans to look your best?

In some colleges, students have fashioned a chic ethnic look for themselves. Kurtis with puffed sleeves or full sleeve kurtis paired with Patiala’s or tight churidhars/ leggings, grunge kolhapuri chappals, or mojrees, mix-and-match accessories, and light eye make-up and voila you’ve made your style statement for the day.

What is great is that girls can mix and match accessories and make a salwaar or a patiala look just as cool as any other outfit. Short kurtis or t-shirts , Patiala’s and elegant kurtis with matching ballet shoes, mojrees and flip-flops is what college girls swear by and are assured never to go wrong with. Think about a sleeve-less black ganji and a pleated Patiala with lots of bright colours on it and a jhola bag 😉 and your ready to hit the road 😀

Who can forget the trend that Kareena Kapoor set with the TEEs and harem pants in Jab We Met, which some at college often try to pass off as a dress code! That look was accepted by one and all as it was so simple yet so fashionable. Oversized jholas, Osho chappals, colourful stoles, funky belts over kurtis, and loud accessories seem to be the flavour of any season among the fashion conscious. Boring salwaar suits have been shown the door. Finally! J

It’s time to dig out those salwaars and stoles that you only wore for a for pammi aunty’s daughters engagement :P, who knows what sets of outfits one might end up with if one experiments with it all! Atleast now you’re never going to hear people knit the word ‘behenji’b with their desi attire, because if you’re not carrying a bit of desipan in you…you’re definitely not following the right trend! 🙂
