October Rain

The chill in the weather finally seems to have set in with the October rain. Sometimes this weather leaves me with a deja vu feeling. As if I have experienced something very charming back in some old forgotten past life.
I was thinking of things that remind me of something else. E.g., there are lighter shades of blue that always remind me of Godard's Pierrot le fou ever since I have seen the movie.

What does blue remind you of right this instant?

the beautiful Anna Karina

What does the pixie cut remind you of right this instant?

remember this iconic scene from Breathless?
 It is usually Mia Farrow or Posh Spice or Emma Watson to me..but right now I am thinking of Jean Seberg

What does androgyny remind you of right this instant?

What does Indian style remind you of right this instant?

It reminds me of Ritu Kumar's elaborate ethnic designs.
 And Sabyasachi Mukherjee's designs (as seen below). I do not agree when he rants about the old days when he was growing up in Kolkata (my birth city where I am stuck in even today) and how he hates somethings now. But his work can be like a dream sometimes. One of India's answers to the world of high fashion in Milan, Paris and yada yada.

Day 06 – Favorite made for TV movie

Day 06 - A picture of a person you'd love to trade places with for a day

Day 07 – The most surprising plot twist or ending

Day 07 - A picture of your most treasured item
That would be my spectacles or my lenses without which I would have the constant sickness of blurriness.

I would love to keep my head on your shoulders
As I smell the October rain
I would love to hear my sighs
Against the cold glassy grain

Happy Autumn
