Simbly Bored

It's me that's bored enough to blog. The posts are interesting enough.

Girlie Gyan May 19, 2007

Filed under: Randomness,Too Much Time — The Goddess @ 4:42 pm

I was clearing my favourite drawer today, the one that contains all the girlie stuff. And I did some listing out. (my favourite activity, appears productive without actually being so)

What does a girl really need in her wardrobe and her makeup/accessories drawer? A question that’s baffled mankind for centuries… Here’s my take:

Clothes:

  • Five saris (heavy, flowing, transperant, wildly printed and all extremely sexy)
  •  

  • Five kurtis (for lazy weeks. include a white chikan one that you can team with blue jeans)
  •  

  • Five salwars (for everyday wear when aunties/grannys are around)
  •  

  • Five captioned T-Shirts (for the prove a point types, like me)
  •  

  • Five normal, plain, slightly oversized T-Shirts that can graduate to the gym and then sleep (by which time they would have also acquired a degree of sentimental value), preferably one or two flicked from a guy 😛 (for feel fat days)
  •  

  • Five extremely girly tops
  •  

  • One pristine white, well cut, just the right curves, formal, button down shirt
  •  

  • Five pyjamas (for those who prefer do the laundry once a week)
  •  

  • Two pairs of shorts (to laze around in)
  •  

  • Two pairs of jeans (that last a month without washing)
  •  

  • One pair of formal trousers (just in case)
  •  

  • One pair of cargoes (for weekends)
  •  

  • One pair of capris (for weekends and to show off smooth as silk legs)
  •  

  • Absolutely NO Embroidered Jeans!
  •  

Shoes:

  • One pair of floaters/comfy shoes that go with all jeans
  •  

  • One pair of dressy heels
  •  

  • One pair of sandals that that go with most salwars
  •  

  • One pair of comfy sneakers 🙂
  •  

This list of clothes and shoes doesn’t, of course, count the dress up stuff. 😛

Make Up:

  • Compact (the right shade, please. Grab another shade if you’ve tanned to avoid looking like ramseys B grade Bhoot)
  •  

  • One clear gloss
  •  

  • One pink gloss
  •  

  • One shiny glittery thing (for dress up evenings that can be worn over other colours too)
  •  

  • One red lipstick, preferably non transferable (coz it will be worn on occasions where you might carry an oh so tiny purse that will not hold the right touch up stuff)
  •  

  • Lip liners if you have the patience, the right shade and know how to use it. Most of us don’t and look like disasters
  •  

  • One neutral brown lipstick, neither glossy nor matte (that can be worn to work)
  •  

  • One shade of glide on lipstick that does justice to your complexion
  •  

  • A six shade eye shadow compilation that will double as highlighter when worn with the right brush (that starts with a silvery white and ends with a dark brown) wear multiple shades only if you know how to blend. again, most of us don’t have the required degree in fine arts 😛
  •  

  • Eyeliner
  •  

  • Kajal (for casual summer evenings)
  •  

  • Mascara (for dress up occasions. there are better things to do in office than worry about mascara)
  •  

  • Foundation and concealers are for the babes who wouldn’t be reading my blog 🙂
  •  

Accessories:

  • Two pairs of studs
  •  

  • Two pairs of ethnic dangling earrings
  •  

  • Two pairs of funky dangling earrings
  •  

  • Whatever neckwear you prefer
  •  

  • One witch like ring
  •  

  • One normal ring
  •  

  • Bangles of all types (matti, glass, metal, yellow metal, bracelets)
  •  

  • Cute anklets
  •  

  • Two good belts
  •  

  • One pair of good shades that complement the face
  •  

  • Three bags (one fancy party type thing, one all encompassing backpack that holds gym clothes, emergency chocolate and more and one normal thingie)
  •  

Necessities:

  • Face wash
  •  

  • Face scrub
  •  

  • Light moisturizer
  •  

  • Sunscreen
  •  

  • Moisturizing Cream
  •  

  • Effective cleanser
  •  

  • Deoderant
  •  

Emergency Supplies (hope to never need them):

  • Anti pimple cream
  •  

  • Off the shelf face pack
  •  

  • Blackhead removing strips
  •  

If you’ve made it till here, please note that I’ve not talked about hair care in this post 😛

A girl should own and definitely know how to use this stuff (especially the sari ;)) but whether she actually uses it… ummmmm… well…

    I love the 21st generation girls – They list the things they want, and buy it themselves too…

    mmmmmmmmwah…

    A guy does not need to shop… (or worst case, give the list to some girl in Health n Glow, and think of a nice cover story of how meticulously the shades we chosen…and pop in a “for you love” after every 3 words…

    Thats sounds gross and pukey? well yes it does too here 😛
    yaaaaaaaaaay

  2. John Says:

    whoa! Thats a years expense for an average indian family…actually make that two

  3. Aparna Says:

    You got it right girl…I can’t stop wondering why people wear embroidered
    jeans and multi shaded jeans!!
    Now I can conclude with confidence that our fashion sense is totally similar.

  4. Arjun Says:

    you said you were cleaning out your drawer….. gawdd…. where does all this stuff fit??

    Even if we were to disregard the expenses undertaken to fulfill this LIST – since you contribute to the GDP of the nation by spending money, you;d need a big house to fit all this in….

    (1 Peter 3:3-4)

    Your adornment must not be merely external–braiding the hair, and wearing gold jewelry, or putting on dresses; but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God.

  6. usha Says:

    lol…my husband will faint if I show him this list..
    I have hardly half of the things you listed here..

  7. Xai Says:

    @ww
    no self respecting 21st century girl would allow a guy to shop for her makeup. he would turn her into (to quote myself) ramseys B grade Bhoot

    @john
    who said i’m average? 😛

    @aparna
    i’m rushing to embrace you like you’re a sister i lost at the kumbh mela

    @arjun
    don’t take things too literally. plus, i think your wife is smart enough to have all that and more. take a peek into her wardrobe, then we can talk 😛

    @peter
    “Your adornment must not be merely…” I’m just elaborating what the merely comprises. If only you’d let me know who you are, would have sent them to you to learn the spirit part…

    @usha
    ha, time to blackmail the husband i say!

  8. Sudhir Pai Says:

    brr…
    I dread such a long shopping list…
    the next time a lady goes out for shopping with such a list, i’ll just add my pennies worth to her list and her purse and i’m sure all my needs will be met! [;)]
    This girlie gyan will surely keep “man”kind in good stead. will watch this space for more gyan!
    cheers!
