Ever wished that you could freeze time at a particular point in your life? Silly question. Of course you have! There are these precious moments of perfection, fleeting moments really, that you want to capture and store in a jar and sprinkle it with fairy dust so that it never goes missing. But it’s surprising and downright insulting to those precious memories, how fast your brain starts to forget them. Not all at once, but over time, the picture gets hazy, a few details are missed. You think back ‘Did that happen on a Saturday or a Friday?’ or ‘Was I at home when I got the call?’ or ‘Was it in September?’ Eventually you are left with a shadow of the memory, that can never match up to its true form. But we can’t freeze time. Period.Which is why most of us go click-click-crazy and snap pictures of anything and everything that we hold close to our heart. Sometimes I’m frustrated with the number of pictures I’ve accumulated over the years (anyone else a hoarder?). But the little jolts of recollections that you get when you go through them is a feeling like none other. That’s exactly what my blog has become to me. A book of memories, a scrapbook, a portfolio, a depository of everything good, weird and beautiful. It’s no surprise that when I need to recollect the date of some event or some place I’ve been to, I scroll back through my blog and search for it!So I decided to dedicate this post to my (camera) trigger happy self, and my beloved camera. In keeping with the theme, I wore this bright orange, camera print shift dress. They are the easiest to wear, most versatile and easiest to accessorize. The moment I saw this fabric I knew I wanted to make something out of it, because the print looked so cute! Take a look at the pictures while I take another walk through memory lane! 🙂

Oh yeah, you're so right about the blog thing! And memories define me. I'm what my experiences are worth and without them, I'm just another body without a soul. No matter how hazy, blurry, confusing, embarrassing they are, I always own up to all my memories. The day my memories become a shadow of themselves, you'd know I'm dead.
I am a big hoarder of pictures too. Seriously!
The dress looks lovely on you. It seems to be effortless, easy to wear and versatile too.
Ooh, I love the dress! And I think the camera loves you too CM! 😀
I want this fabric. Please please send me some. I have already sent you my address, please send me some. I shall pay in advance 🙂
Love the pattern and the way you have made this dress. Beautiful it is 🙂 And I so love those tea shades too. I'm planning to get one for myself now 🙂

Thank you! 🙂
haha thanks! 🙂
I bought this many months back! Next time I go to the store I'll get it.. hopefully it'll still be there. I have a feeling you'll get more variety in B'lore itself.
