08 Aug Wasted By Fashion
Hi, Anu. So glad to hear from you and It’s been awhile. What have you been up to lately?
It has surely been a very long time since we last spoke. Things have changed so much. I finished my engineering in Electronics and Communication in 2014. I am a Quality Analyst with an IT firm now with almost 3 years in this field. Blogging has kept me sane in all these years though.
I was looking at old pictures of you and looking at current pictures of you. Time sure flies. Your style has changed so much and you look amazing. Can you please share your transformation?
Thank You so much. Yes, I guess I was in my 3rd year of college when we last spoke. I was barely 20 years old and I was definitely trying to find my style. I myself am surprised when I see the older pictures in my blog . I wouldn’t change them though because they are a part of my journey. I am still transforming but over the years I have gained the acceptance of what works for me and what does not.
You have a new blog name, Wasted by Fashion. What made you change your blog to Wasted by Fashion from An Indian Twist?
Like every Indian, I love the grand and heavy outfit but that is not wearable or sustainable. I felt that though Indian wear is beautiful, I wouldn’t be able to wear them all the time or most people would be able to spend a bomb on each of them. I had to evolve myself so that I cater to mine as well as to my readers.
Wasted By Fashion was a brand name I came up with after I asked few of my friends on how it sounded. Since most of them loved it, I rebranded the entire blog to go with this idea.
To be honest, I have not excluded Indian Fashion completely and I do have a lot of posts that give inspiration with bridesmaid wear but I have become more inclusive. Wasted By Fashion is all about fashion with variety and comfort now.
The last time I interviewed you until now, what have you learned about yourself?
Like I said, so much has changed. It has been almost 5 years since we last spoke. The biggest change that I went through was acceptance of how my body looks. I have always been fitness oriented but the goals have changed. I advocate positive body image nowadays through my posts and social media shares. The art of acceptance is what I have learned and I am grateful that I did.
What inspires you?
To be honest, a lot of things. I am hugely inspired by classic Engish and Indian movies i.e people in general but what keeps me going is Nature. I channelize my inspirations better when I am in touch with nature.
Are you planning to go shopping soon? Anything that is on your mind that you want to try on or buy?
Actually yes, I had a list of things I wanted to get because it is sale time here in India. I wanted to get a good sleeveless classic open jacket for office wear as well as for casuals. I was fortunate that I found two products exactly like I wanted it to be with a black one from Zara and a white one from Vero Moda.
This sale season has been crazy for me. I actually found everything I had listed that I wanted to buy.
