The Power OF Being YOU

The Power OF Being YOU

Hello Divas,

Today I am going to talk about something very important. So read it carefully. To brief you up, this post is about encouraging people to be themselves, a journey to self-finding. And my journey path involves fashion, so that too.

Right from our childhood, we have been compared to something or the other. Sometimes it’s about who scores better in class, or who is better at sports and so on and so forth. Everything is scaled. And there was someone always better than you, and this someone mostly was that mean kid in the neighbourhood whom you hated to the bone. But does that make you any less? NO!

You grow up into the person you are today. You are nice, kind and everyone loves you. Well, not everyone. You are not the convenient choice. Why? Because you don’t look a certain way the so called “society” wants you to look. The question is, who the hell is this society? The bunch of people who are so empty on the inside they can’t control their own shit, but expect everything and everyone around them to be “perfect”. But does that keep you from being your best self? NO!

They say “Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder”. Well, the idea of beauty has changed it is definition over the years. Sometimes it is stick thin. Sometimes it is fuller. Sometimes it is athletic. But mostly, it is something you don’t have.  Let’s talk about UGLY now. It could be the fat around your tummy or maybe all over your body. It could be the acne on your face. It could be a mark from an accident. But does that make you any less beautiful? Effing NO!

The difficulty with being nice is that you are expected to be good at everything and with everything. Why? Because the same shithead society doesn’t understand is that there is a limit to everything. Even to being nice. Because to them, that harmless joke on our bodies, our appearance, our clothes, wasn’t JUST a harmless comment. It meant something. (It took me 24 years to be comfortable in my skin, because I was being nice to the people around me. Nice means not replying back when they bluntly shamed me for what I am.)  I wonder how many more of me might be out there, listening to the tantrums, every day, with no escape to that body shaming. But did that actually shame us? NO. What it did was make us wise enough to laugh at them, for we are beautiful the way we are, thick or thin. But you, Yes YOU dear society, show how ugly you can be. And do we give a damn to you? HELL NO!

Independence: Well, the mind is still without fear, per se. Feisty is now trending (And Always Will Be). So be the feisty you. Say NO to what you don’t like. Walk off it. You do not owe anyone any explanation. You deserve the best. You just deserve it. Say YES to what you wish to do. Be YOU. Because at the end of the day, you are your own saviour, your own hero, your own self. AND NOBODY, NO EFFING BODY CAN TAKE THAT AWAY FROM YOU. SO OWN IT. OWN IT LIKE YOU HAVEN’T KNOWN OWNING ANYTHING ELSE.

It doesn’t take a billion efforts to be yourself, it just takes one!

Blue Is Beautiful

 

Blazers for women
Blaze it Up!

Come along now, let’s go get you sorted.
An 80 year old and surprisingly fit and agile grandfather was heard saying the same to a beautiful young woman of 25 accompanying him, namely his granddaughter.
No grandpa let’s not get those blazers, let’s look for some more tees instead.
The young woman was all determination as she plonked herself beside her grandfather in front of the computer in the den. She was all of 25, soon to be attending a foreign university for higher studies. Her grandfather had taken it upon himself to shop online for his beloved granddaughter a month in advance. The granddaughter thought about her sartorial needs and zeroed in on casual more than anything else while her grandpa agreed to all her desires but insisted on only one blazer.
You never know when you’ll need it was his constant refrain. And despite his granddaughter’s refusal to get the same old fashioned blazer for herself, he had dragged her along to the computer and now sat transfixed at the blue blazer collection from Stalk Buy Love. He zeroed in on two particular favorites:

  1. Royal Blue Love Blazer- This blazer caught grandpa’s fancy on account of its lovely color, sober cuts and amazing presence.

  1. Lineage Blazer- This attracted grandpa on account of its street smart and lighter hue and of course, its simplistic yet supremely elegant design. Also, given account of the material, as it is pure linen, it’s perfect for summers.

He finally zeroed in on the first one for his granddaughter who left a month later for higher studies abroad. Little did she know that a forced online shopping sojourn on Stalk Buy Love would prove so handy when she was selected to present a prestigious paper at a conference of scholars by her university and the dress code clearly read Blazers for Women Speakers. She earned immense praise for her paper and the rest, of course, is history.
May you be blessed with Grandpa’s foresight and use the opportunity to snap up some attractive blazers from Stalk Buy Love.
