Mint Green

12:15:00 AM

Sometimes I wonder would I have dressed differently if I lived someplace else. It's funny how the place you live affects the way you dress! I have been wanting to walk around in a hat for so long. I mean..hello! it's summers and the sun is burning my skin. Why can't I wear a hat or a big bow hairband? And then I remind myself that I will be laughed at..laughed and stared at..wouldn't you stare at..maybe, a dinosaur if it walked past you ? That's exactly how I will be stared at and mocked. I can almost hear a kid shout, "Look mamma! That girl has gone crazy!" And for all the ignore-the-stares-and-wear-what-you-like that I keep talking about, I will never be brave enough to bear 'the stare' I just talked about.
Don't get me wrong..I love this city so much! But, Calcutta is conservative..it doesn't let go of its inhibitions and holds on to its culture and that reflects in how people dress here *most..there obviously are exceptions* And that's not a bad thing. But, I guess what I'm trying to say is you won't see girls walk down the streets in maxis and jumpsuits. Hell! Coloured pants are rare!

  3. Culcutta and Cochin are counterparts let me tell u, especially in dressing aesthetics...I have a hard time wearing sleeveless or upto knee length skirts in public transport...

  10. I understand what you say as I was also in the same kind of city. But once I am away, my style has been changed with no notice and if i return to the city, I don't mind being like this. I am not much bothered about the stares and shouts like before :)

    Nevertheless, I love the city:)

  13. So true! Imagine me living in Mumbai, and yet sometimes I feel people judge too harshly!
    Best is to go on vacation somewhere and take all your favorite clothes!
    When I studied abroad in Milan for 8 months, I had the time of my life, dressing up.. And now those same clothes are just lying somewhere in my closet, waiting to be worn again!

  15. I wore a big bow hairband to college once, the boys had a field day at my expense. Never Again. What I do like is how folks in my locality do dress in maxi's and jumpsuits, and that's heartening to see. But yes, You cannot walk about in 80% of calcutta wearing those. I totally get where you're coming from with this.
