Happiness is nothing but the feeling a person gets when he does what he has always wanted to do. There are two types of happiness’. One being ‘virtual happiness’ and the other is ‘eternal happiness’. Sounds stupid? Let me explain it to you. When I am sad or let’s just say, not happy, I go shopping. I enter a mall, look at pretty clothes and bags and shoes, it gives me happiness. I buy some of that pretty stuff, it gives me more of that happiness. This is virtual happiness. I will be happy for a day and what after that? The stuff I bought is no longer new and shiny and doesn’t really make me as happy as it did the day I bought it.
Now consider a guy who loves to play the guitar or football, No matter how bad his day must be going the guitar lover gets immense pleasure playing a guitar and it makes him forget about the bad day he has been having. Similarly, all a footballer looks forward to is to play his favorite sport or watch it and when he does, he goes into another world where the only emotion he feels is happiness. This is eternal happiness. This feeling is pure and harmless.
Fashion blogging is the key to my eternal happiness (recently discovered). My dream job is to be a full time fashion blogger. Imagine people paying you to do what you love, heaven right? I am a 3/4th computer engineer by the way. Oh don’t ask how that happened, I am unaware of that myself. My favorite time-pass is to stalk the fashion bloggers I follow on instagram and do some online shopping. Trust me, I can do that all day and all night.
I will tell you how I recently discovered my key to happiness. A few months ago, when I was stalking some of the fashion bloggers while my Mathematics III lecture was on, the thought of ‘I wish I was a fashion blogger too’ occurred to me. How cool would a professional fashion blogger’s life be? The work being to look good and shop more and review brands ( and later on own a brand, that is my dream. ). Oh that is eternal happiness. I spent months thinking about the pros and cons because staying in a hostel and having to study the subject we engineering students have to (not that we actually do), I had to think twice before getting into it. There were more reasons for a no than for a yes. Staying in a hostel, in a hill station like Lonavala where there are no such things as malls and people there never wear shorts or heels (the two very basics I love). Oh and the worst negative point was the internet access facility is missing there. I am lucky dad gave me a net-connect dongle because of which I have survived these 2.5 years. Also, there were the positives. Lonavala is so beautiful, all you can think of doing there is clicking a pretty picture and insta (instagram) it. And plus every alternate weekends I visit my parents in Mumbai and sometimes don’t return for a week. So I finally started working on my love. And today I have my own website and my first blog is ready and you are here reading it ( How jobless are you? ) and after you are done reading it you will probably leave a lovestruck comment down there ( Well, I hope).
Let me tell you that I am not filthy rich yet, I do not shop from Prada and Chanel every weekend and I do not own a shop yet ( I will, in a few years). It kinda makes me sad sometimes when I see my favorite fashion bloggers wearing ‘oh so Prada’ stuff which we students can only wish for so I thought why not write about affordable fashion which any girl can afford. Style is not defined by labels and don’t let the labels define you either. You define them. I hope one day I define a label and own it. Hence the name of my blog – APOSS, (which stands for A Part Of Swastica Swapn) which shall be a brand one day. And ten years later when you read this, you will be wearing my label.
The look in the above post is a very casual college going look. It completely defines who I am. A student for now. The ripped jeans is from Lee Cooper and I have ripped them myself. The neon pink tank top is from Zara. The flip-flops are from Forever21. The watch is from FCUK and it is a men’s watch and I totally love it. The star studs and clip-on is from Forever21 too. The yellow aviators are my favorite and they are from Colaba causeway. The pink doodle diary with my name engraved on it is from Doodle Collection You can find them on instagram also by the name ‘doodleindia’. In all it has the basic clothes and accessories every girl generally has. And not to forget, It is super comfy!
