    I clearly remember Zeenat Aman in Dam-maro-dam with the bindi, big yellow sunglasses, winged eyeliner and kurta with garland around her neck. She did complete justice to the Hippie Trend and it’s a statement even today. This trend started in the late 1960s and become very popular in late seventies and the early eighties.

    One of the prominent trends of Eighties has to be Hippie fashion is all about loud patterns, prints and colors. This trend is associated with flowly silhouettes.  Zeenat Aman is the one who popularised the hippie fashion in India with her vibrant colored shirts and dresses (with large amounts of ‘oomph’ factor ofcourse) were the kind of clothes she commonly wore on-screen. She was not conservative in the slightest way and certain trends became exceedingly popular all because of her. Flaired high waist pants and an overall hippie style of dressing was made popular during that time because of the ease in which Zeenat Aman carried these styles. The Retro look was very popular during her time and she took it to greater heights with her sense of fashion and style.

    So when I was planning the last part of the story, I know I had to take inspiration from the queen herself. I got this beautiful printed dress from Shopbe and it perfectly fit my eighties fashion story. I paired the dress with a rose pink turtle neck tee. I kept my hair open staying true to the free-spirited vibe of hippie fashion. I carried a suede fringe bag along with it. No eighties look can be complete without a pair of over-sized tinted sunglasses and I prefer yellow. I pop of bright pink on the lips and my clothes transported me back to the eighties.

    ON CONFIDENCE

    Ahoy-hoy, BE folks. I hope August has been good for you. For me, it has been inspirational. Weather really lifts me up and it’s been beautiful lately. I love this time of the year. It makes me super nostalgic! Remember as kids, we use to get so much advice? Some of it actually turned out to be pretty useful: don’t press your pimples, never take anything from a stranger, early to bed early to rise makes and a man healthy, wealthy and wise, never shop without checking zippers and buttons, and finish your homework and some of it was utter bullshit. I think it’s better to skip it.  But the motive behind all of it wasn’t wrong. Like everyone else, people around us wanted us to have a happy healthy life. But there is this one thing that never fails no matter in what situation you are and that is – fake it till you make it.

    Don’t get me wrong here – I don’t want you to base your life around a made-up personality. I’m talking about confidence here. Honestly, being an introvert in my early teens, I have faced plenty of issues with my confidence. I still do. I use to think that there is something really wrong with me. I use to get intimidated by situations (it’s still the same) but I just couldn’t let it frustrate me. For a very long time, I avoided being in situations like that (tiny cough). But it kept haunting me and I thought to myself – What am I running away from? And more importantly why? I can just put my I – CAN –DO it intentions out there and deal with it. I’ve improved over the years – a lot needs to be done still though. I still feel terrified of going to a place where I don’t know anyone. But I do it anyway. I do a lot of self-talk and make myself understand – you are a cool person, you know you have something to add. May be sometimes I suck at it – but at least I’m trying. You have to fake it till you make it, honey! You have to give yourself a chance. Choosing to be in such situations does make a lot of difference. Half the battle is won. Literally! Hope this was helpful in some way. 

    Laters!
