Who is She?
I don't know. But she has that mysterious look. She has that rare charm about her that makes me look into her eyes. She isn't green-eyed or blue but just normal brown or maybe black. She isn't very tall or short. she isn't fair but wheatish. She isn't slim neither fat. She is probably in her late twenties. She doesn't seem arrogant but enthusiastic in that confident manner going about her day, walking by my aisle 10 times a day for coffee, tea & lunch. She dresses in cottons, chiffoniers & silks, in Indian & western with equal grace. Nothing seems overly done or to odly-dully dressed. She has got the footware match her outfit just in that subtly right manner and so does her earrings. Earrings!!! OMG, yes, they so amazingly match the outfits in color, pattern & texture that there couldn't have been a better match.
I have seen many people dress 'fashionably' but to me somethings never right. Either they are just too matching -matching and hell breaks through to look at them or its the contrast but with the same effect. In my mind I sometimes keep dolling up a person as to what exactly could that have made it right.
I am not the perfect dress-up doll kinda person. I cant choose the right fabric and pattern and finally wear it for the right occassion for my life making my mom's life miserable. She still rants about the kind of dress I wore to church the day before my marriage and I just cant recollect the one. Make-up for me is talcom powder and very rarely the lipstick. I wear gold accessories that can submerge into the background and I can wear the same for months togather. So the point I am trying to make is I am not a fashion diva nor do I follow any closely. But I do admire everyone who can put things togather and who can get it right for the right moment.
Dressing up gracefully is an art and a rare one at that. There is this saying in malayalam which goes to the effect of Even if you lie dead you should lie gracefully.
