The Reunion

After a gap of nearly twelve years, I met my childhood friend. This incident occurred a few days ago. But the emotions and memories it stirred up will last for a lifetime....

We met when we were little kids and grew up together. Our parents were really good friends and that served as a stimulant for our friendship. We didn't study in the same school and we weren't neighbours either. But we met very often and spent many happy hours together. She was one of the few persons whom I really felt comfortable with and we enjoyed each other's company immensely. Her little sister always used to tag along with us and we included her in all our activities.My best years of childhood were spent in her company. Each and every moment was truly wonderful. The incidence of a fight was zilch. We never had any problems in our friendship and we were always in tune with one another's feelings.

All good things must come to an end. In a similar fashion, our friendship was also put to a test. Her father was transferred to a different city and so they had to leave soon.
We promised to stay in touch but it wasn't the same as living in the same city. Soon the phone calls reduced and so did the letters. But nevertheless we never failed to stay in touch. We wished each other on special occasions like birthdays or festivals. We had a general overview of what was happening in each others lives, but it couldn't equal a face to face meeting.

Recently her family shifted to the same city where I am staying now. The moment we knew we were in the same city, we instantly made a plan to meet. And what a meeting it was!

Fashion Talk (Part 2)

This is the second post in the series "Fashion Talk". This post is about accessories for women.

The clothes you wear denote who you are and are very important in determining your identity. Every individual has his or her own style of dressing. But no matter what your style is, it is important that you dress according to the occasion or situation.
As Mark Twain said "Clothes maketh the man" (or woman in this case).But only wearing the right clothes will not suffice- they should be combined with the right accessories.
For example: Wearing mismatched or shoddy looking shoes with a traditional clothes is an absolute no no.

That brings us back to the main topic of this post- Accessories.
Accessories can make or break your look, so it becomes essential that you use them with care. Never overdo the accessory part. If used wisely they can definitely enhance your appearance.

List of accessories
  • Stoles: These are stylish substitutes for a traditional dupatta. They can be teamed  with  kurtis and pant or with a skirt and top too. They are available in various designs and materials.

  • Shrugs/Jackets: These can be worn with a simple tee and jeans or with a full length dress to accentuate the look.
