JOTD : For discovering ourself, let’s go back to college (featuring Firefly Blings)

By Tarry

Hello lovelinas….

Nice word na. Lovelina… I really love this word. Actually, a senior of mine addressed me this way in college. Three days after she had ragged me enough, she thought that I was a good sport and obeyed everything she said ;-)
But she had a tough time pronouncing my name and hence, started calling me and a few other fuchchhas lovelinas. That time, the word sounded weird. But when I look back today, I feel it was really pretty.

College is a wonderful time indeed. Since in India school means being in the closed confines of uniform, college is actually a time when you find your sense of style. So from oversized shirts and super loose denims to smart skirts to the kurta jeans look, I experimented with them all. And finally, found my solace (and comfort) in the kurta denims fusion. The very DU look (I am from Gargi College Delhi University ;-)… and the very me.

So when I had to do a JOTD for a funky Tibetan pendant, which has been beautifully designed by Vaarooni of Firefly Blings, I decided to don my ‘Back to College’ Avataar. Because this one fitted extremely well with what I wore in college.
Presenting here my lovelies,

I feel that the kurta and denim look is so effortless and not only makes you feeling comfortable but also, particularly no-nonsense types. And you will find loads of DU and JNU students in this avatar. This is also called the 'intellectual look' and some call it the jholawala look as well :-)

The pendant particularly adds that classiness and effortless styling to the look. Housed in a beautiful thick chain, this pendant just adds that much needed colour to the outfit. Hanging loosely, it doesn’t actually make you feel too fashionable but adds just the right amount of class.

Since it was a back to college look, my hair was in a messy bun, a favourite for summer time college goers. Makeup too wasn’t too heavy with just loads of kohl on the eyes and mute brown matte lips. I remember this brand called ‘Personi’ from my college days, which had some amazing browns and maroons in typical matte finish. Infact, priced less than Rs 100, they were perfect for us college girls and were super long stay. I had three browns from them and still haven’t found my perfect chocolate brown in other other brand so far, other than Personi…  J

Photographs are once again by Vaidehi Kapur. I particularly loved the one with the red walls, as my college too has red walls and this made me totally nostalgic for sure. :-) I still wear such stuff because becoming a journalist also meant i stay in this style only... effortless and happy :-)
