Colour Me Pretty

2:41:00 AM

This one time during college, I was very upset *I don't remember the reason* but I remember being very upset. I went to a friend's place and she tried cheering me up. She gave up in the end and started showing me the new fabrics she'd got. She had a small clothing line of her own so she was showing me the new fabrics she'd got and I saw this beautiful print in bright red and blue and I cannot tell you how happy it made me! The colours instantly cheered me up #TrueStory Yes, I did end up getting a top made in that print..though I wasn't too happy with the end product, I like it enough to wear it a lot.
Colours make me happy. I rarely opt for a black and white outfit but even when I do, I make it a point to add a pop of colour. I instantly like people who wear a lot of colours. I think men who can carry off bright colours are H.A.W.T. As a kid, it amazed me how you could add two colours and bham! we had a third colour! During art classes, I always added red and white to make pink instead of just using pink. Maybe that is the reason I love spring so much. The colours. The new flowers on the trees, the colourful fruit stalls...spring makes the world a brighter place. Brighter place=Happier place. Though spring here literally means summer and as mush as I crib about the heat and humidity, I'd choose summer/spring over winter anyday just for the colours!

I am also submitting this for the InFB Remix-Neon.

Mixing two bold colours so I kept it simple with the accessories. Yellow is such a summer colour, no?

Top- Sisley (Bought on sale)
Pant- ASOS (Rs 1300)
Shoes- Simpark, Kolkata
Neck piece- Thrifted
Bag- Alcott (Rs 600)

The other day my colleagues were discussing how they associate people with colours. I kept wondering why had I never done that cos I would have loved to do that! I googled about it and excuse my ignorance, I had no idea synesthesia existed! (It is a condition in which one type of stimulation evokes the sensation of another, as when the hearing of a sound produces the visualization of a color.) It's like you see colors in your mind when you think of certain people. And apparently associating emotions with colors is also a part of synesthesia. Read more about synesthetes

Have you ever associated people with colour?
