I almost ended up doing this shoot barefoot because these are the most uncomfortable shoes ever. Only I could do such a thing as go to the store, try them on, walk around in them, get them on sale and still end up with the most uncomfortable pair ever. Also it’s not like they are sky high stilettos, they are practically flats (1.5 inch does not qualify as a heel). But there is something wrong with this pair and I haven’t been able to figure out what exactly. So how do you wear a pair of most uncomfortable shoes? The logical solution would be to not wear them at all, but, we don’t do that do we? One, ‘coz they look pretty. Two, money doesn’t grow on trees and neither does a free second pair to replace the current one. Three, it’s a perfect match to a particular outfit. And once that happens, logic goes out the window because all that matters is that the outfit looks good. Whether you end up with blisters on your feet, or you are hobbling down the road, or you start walking barefoot after 20 bone crunching paces, it’s all secondary. Amazing how fashion makes so much sense right?
But these green shades make me feel sassy, like I’ve finally joined the cool kids by their table. If you’ve been a geek all your life, you’ll understand the feeling. I’ve pretty much been wearing them non-stop since I purchased them. I initially had my heart set on the blue reflectors. After a rather tough decision process of trying to choose between the blue and green ones, which involved endless cups of coffee, frantic googling and three whole days of visiting every online/offline store that stocked Rayban, I went ahead with the green ones. Don’t you just love it when you make the right choice for a change?
There were days when my dad used to drive me around and I would ‘tch-tch’ at his road rage. But from the time I started driving I totally sympathize with him. Anyway, I digress. The point of this post is that it is SO hot. And you are going to say ‘See Chandana, it is summer and it is supposed to hot. This hot. Maybe even hotter’. Thank you, but that doesn’t help a bit. I think I’ve already decided am going to be grumpy about it. I’ve decided am going to yell and scream and scare the living daylights out of every motorcyclist that cuts across my path. I’ve also decided am going to shop for more summer clothes. So that’s three decisions that together make absolutely no sense. And that my friends is how you take decisions.
So the point of this post was……? Ummm… I give up!
Adding to the already no-sleep situation is another problem. It starts in the morning, every morning, early morning. First come the shrill shouts of this lady ‘To the right, no I said RIGHT! Now, jump jump jump!’. She could any-day surpass a drill sergeant making you half-wonder if you sleep walked and joined the military and salute in your sleep just by the sound of her voice. Then comes the loud blaring music of ‘Disco deewaneeee’. And then someone starts crying. All this from a play school rehearsing for their annual function. Kids brawling and music blaring – who needs an alarm clock? I guess I should take a page from Abhay Deol’s (movie) book and start strumming my guitar to ‘I’m just pakaoed!’ All speakers pointing in their direction mind you!
So we fought. My leggings suddenly turned terribly itchy. My shirt tried to suffocate me. My jeans refused to button up. A perfect color combo of pale pink and blue decided to look terrible against my skin. As if all this weren’t enough my favorite yellow t-shirt decided to rip.
Did I just use ‘amazing’ and ‘saturday’ in the same sentence?
Stripes won. Lesson learnt.

You know what else I should be paid for? Laughing at inappropriate moments, dancing while cleaning, chasing after (cute) puppies, looking puzzled in every outfit pic (proof below) and living in pajamas for a week at a stretch.
So… who’s hiring?

p.s – Its kinda shorter than the previous one. I think its time to add a little madness into my life again!
I have another post sitting in my drafts since weeks. I am just waiting for a perfect outfit shoot to accompany those words. You know, because that makes perfect sense. Do any of you girls do that? Write a post and then shoot an outfit according to it? If you do then mail me. We’d be best friends.
I am having the hardest time trying to style this grey polka dot dress. I tried a lot of different combinations until I was forced to give up ‘coz I was running late. At least I got dressed. Step one is complete.
I got tagged by Ki from Dressing up for life sometime back. I am not really good with tags (meaning : I get too lazy and I don’t do them at all!). I don’t like doing the ‘7 random things about myself’ because let’s face it – after doing it thrice, its boring as hell. Every post of mine has random titbits about me – so haven’t we all had enough of the randomness?
**But I do appreciate all the awards and tags that you pass on to me. Yes I really do!**
Anyway this tag is different. Ki came up with a few questions that I am supposed to answer. I am also supposed to write random stuff about myself and tag 11 people. Which *obviously* I am not going to do. Someone please change the rules!
Or just break them, like I did. Yeah I am a wild child.

Non-Indian readers, am sure you wouldn’t be interested in this. Its a (short) review of a recently released Hindi movie – Agneepath.
Watched Agneepath this weekend. I am not going to write a full fledged review here.. so here’s the gist. Hrithik Roshan was fabulous as usual. Another brilliant performance. I loved Rishi Kapoor’s role and character. He is one brilliant actor! Sanjay Dutt is the scariest villian I have ever seen in my life. I can still hear Kancha’s booming and absolutely frightening laughter in my head. To play such a role, build such a body and act with such finese at his age – I salute that actor! I have no idea what Priyanka Chopra was doing in that film. She opened a stupid chinese beauty parlor and that’s about it.
I liked the first half. But the second half really dragged on. At one point I was ready to scream “Kill him already!!! And get it over with so that I can get out and go eat!!”. But he din’t kill. He just dragged it on and on. Literally. (Watch the movie and you’ll understand). So I simply walked out during the last 15-20min and had some yummy cake. Yes I walked out of a film. This is a first for me!
So. Some day. In these fifteen days. You’ll get to see. The magical-mystical-foggy-morning-outfit-post. Because that is the only way I can hold on to the last shreds of winter. Until then, I leave you with this blazing-afternoon-dressy-outfit.
