Another Sunday, Another Midi.

Once bitten, twice, not so shy.
Hey folks another Sunday, another outfit. I'm sporting the midi-skirt, yet again! Caught by the bug.

Daddy's Princess in a Puanropui

Happy Father's Day to all the daddy/s reading my blog, though I doubt there are any. LoL.
This Sunday I decided to go all traditional, and hence the Mizo Puanropui. In Lushai (Mizo) language, Puan refers to cloth (here, to the woven cloth worn around the lower body), and Ropui refers to Great/Majestic. Therefore, Puanropui would literally mean "The Majestic Cloth". Sounds grand eh?

The "Appropriate" Sunday

Throwback Sunday.
Every society expects it's female folks to dress "appropriately" for church services or puja, Mizo society is one of them. In Mizoram, specially, girls have always been asked to wear the traditional "puan" in order to maintain the "ambiance" of a church. Time's changed certain rigidity though, if not much in Mizoram then elsewhere atleast.
I've grown up in Guwahati and now studying in Delhi, so for me, there has been no such pressure demanding me to wear the heavy and expensive traditional wrap-around every Sunday.
There has been times, when I was 16-17yrs, that I wanted to wear them so much because it made me look "mature" and people can take us seriously then. But then came a phase when I opted to wear skirts a few inches higher than the knee, just to look hip. Now, I'm in my normal "grown-up" self, learning more tricks to dress comfortably, without hurting any religious sentiments and yet being stylish even in church.

Call me Whatever.

Heya people. 
Want to know what's cooking? Well, it's been a busy week. Helped my brother in school admissions, catching up with old friends, boyfriend in town, and everything else. So, unsurprisingly I'm always at a dilemma of what to wear. I didn't bring much clothes from Delhi because the stupid air-crafts reduced their luggage capacity per person. This made me dig up my old and "unwanted" clothes left in Guwahati and make use of them again.
