Mishta Roy on how her accessories make her happy

everyday style, fashion

Hello. I’m a 43 year old freelance graphic designer, living in Bangalore, with my husband and my six year old daughter. After I birthed her, I developed Peripheral Neuropathy, which is a progressive chronic condition where the nerves in my body degenerate, starting from my toes, feet, fingers, hands and inwards.
So my fashion choices are largely informed by my health. I wear lots of  long dresses in bright colours and prints, many of them from Zara to hide support shoes most of the time, and I accessorize with chic hats and sunglasses to match the gloves and walking stick that I have to use, to protect my hyper-sensitive skin. I have leopard print gloves, leather gloves with little bows, and many other designs that I have a lot of fun sourcing and collecting.


I also have to wear socks 24/7, so I think long and hard about buying awesomely cool socks, from Hong Kong based websites like Shein, and  Lulu and Sky, among others.
The same with shoes. I need to wear soft flats that causes the least amount of pain to my damaged feet. I love Clarks. I was recently thrilled to be able to wear a really pretty floral shoe I found tucked away in Westside!
Fashion cheers me through my painful condition and keeps me positive and feeling youthful as I age.

  1. We become more human by sharing and caring for each other Mishta! No one is spared from experiencing this pain. It is good to share like this. Your fashion camouflage your pain. World will not see. Take care. God Bless 👍
