Playing it Sage

This is how I would describe my relationship with food

Growing up, desire was not a word you used at home. For some reason it was considered not appropriate to desire things. Be happy with what you have was what we are constantly told. Which is true. We should be content with what we have, but we should let desire fuel our ambitions. When you are ambitious, you do incredible things and then you can get what it is that you desire.

I love the above statement by Sylvia Plath but it has negative connotations. It aptly describes my relationship with food for instance. It's a miracle that I can still fit in a size 6 dress.

Okay, so lets talk about the outfit that I wearing in this post. This outfit is so not me. I mean. Look at it! Girly and me? Phuey! Indian Fashion bloggers has this VIBGYOR challenge going on and they challenged bloggers to wear an outfit/create recipes, which has, at the most, five colors of the rainbow in it. The problem with this is:

  1. I do not have colors in my closet except for blue hues
  2. I do not have colors in my closet except for grey hues
  3. I do not have colors in my closet except for black & white
You see the problem? So I wore this dress which (Thank you Lord!) had all the colors of the rainbow in the print and added a red bag to it. This was the most safest of all the outfit entries that InFB got in this challenge. But, wait a minute. This outfit was out of my comfort zone! So, yay! I am the kind of person who, will wear sneakers with this dress and not wear any accessories except maybe for a big ass men's watch. After the outfit pictures were taken, I did just that.
