Chandni, Fashion Blogger
In conversation with Chandini, Fashion Blogger at Tartans Toasts and Taxis, about her sense of style, her hair, it’s colour and her favorite tracks at the moment.
Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Calcutta
Has Calcutta influenced your sense of style?
Calcutta is a very laid back city, in general. It moves at its own pace and people are known to be laid back. I once wore a pair of ugly looking floaters to a nightclub, with a loose t-shirt and denims, when I was in high school, and nobody seemed to care. The don’t care attitude of mine has definitely been influenced by Calcutta. Therefore I end up dressing up in basics mostly, which could also be termed as lazy dressing.
Can you describe your style ?
I’m the white-Converse, no-accessories kinda girl. On most days I look very vagabond. If I’ve to describe my style, I think it would lean towards 90s and punk.
Any advice on hair and colour, also tell us how you coloured your hair, yourself ?
I’m actually terrible with giving advice. I don’t really take care of my hair that much. Don’t remember the last time I oiled it, even. But gelatin is good occasionally, especially if your hair’s coloured, and a combination of milk and honey works like magic to make it smoother.
My friend, Sangeetha, has insanely cool hair. I saw it on her and I immediately wanted it! So she coloured my hair for me — from scratch — mixing to bleaching to colouring. I’m finally getting a hang of it, but she definitely does a better job. Besides, my hair is really long, and I feel supremely guilty about putting her through the ordeal every time I want to colour my hair. It takes a hell lot of effort and time for her to do hers and mine!
