“What makes the desert beautiful,” says the little prince, “is that somewhere it hides a well.” ― The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
When you’ve lived in a desert for the most part of your life, you learn to adapt and make the best of the situation. It’s not always beautiful – quite the contrary, actually. The onus is on you to make a barren piece of land a part of you, your home – your identity. All hope is not lost though. It’s all about finding that hidden well like Antoine de Saint-Exupéry once said..
Simply put, color-blocking. Bold colours are great, and when paired together – they’re exceptional! At least that’s what I believe. I find it hard to understand why people shy away from pairing bold colours and stepping outside. It’s no secret that fashion icons and designers encourage colour-blocking to a great extent – throw in a few quirky accessories, and you’re bound to be what makes the surrounding beautiful. And if that’s not enough of a reason to go bold in an otherwise boring world, colour-blocking is much more than art form – it allows people to accentuate body shapes to reflect one to look taller or slimmer. I’ve always been all about the colours, and colour-blocking is a trend I use quite often to brighten up my day . So much, that it has now become a part of who I am today.
