Shades of Envy

1:01 AM

A poem begins with a lump in the throat. - Robert Frost

Green always reminds me of envy. While it is a color of vegetation, color of fertility, color of recycling [?!?!] but I always associate a 'certain' shade of green with envy. So while, believe-you-me, I am not envious of anyone [at least not at this very moment] but i couldn't resist giving my post this title. 

Also I thought the phrase "Shades of Envy" had a little poetic rhythm to it. [It could totally be a title of a popular song. Don't you think?]

So when I do not state any specific occasion or outing, 
the outfit is probably how I had dressed for any random day of my life. 
This is the exact same outfit I wore here
Top - Banana Republic [10']; Skirt - ?!?!? [Vancouver, 08']
Necklace - Gift [Mom, 10']; Bangles - Local store [09', 10']


I would like to Thank, the stylish, Ms Jemina for the "stylish blogger awardhere. She has such a great attitude toward life and a real individual style. It's a treat to visit her blog and check out her stylish outfits and accessories daily. 


I would also like to Thank, Sabine from PSYNOPSIS for the "♥ your Blog Award" here. She is on a 2 week holiday right now, but usually she is a pot of wisdom and interesting views about everything that makes life.

  6. Love the Shades of Envy title, Tanvi.
    I love green against dark hair, it works so well. With a beautiful smile like yours you must be the envy of many.
    I'm in full green mode today, off camping in the great (wet) British countryside at a music festival and have green toes and fingers to be in tune with nature.
    Have a great weekend! xxx

  16. Ahhh...the shades of Tanvi...

    Being someone who lives and works with colour, I do need to say that green is actually a healing colour even though that "green with envy" saying came about from Elizabethan times (or thereabouts), referring to how pale English skin would get green tinged when sick!
    ...envy or jealousy can make you feel sick so that's the connection and of course Shakespeare used green to describe jealousy in Othello. So it stuck. but oh the irony!

    Enough of that.

    You! Fabulous you! Congratulations on your awards, you are more than deserving of any and all accolades you get.
