Pizza on Iranian Bread

1:01 AM




Ahhh! That was quite nice! 


So now that we satisfied our appetite [visually!] here's what I am thinking ... Fashion is an integral part of this blog now. So I won't blame anyone, if they assume all I think about [all the time] is clothes and shoes [which btw is true for the 'shoes' part!]. But ... one more thing I do A LOT is 'people watching'. I enjoy it immensely. I can spend a whole day sipping coffee by a busy street and simply watch people pass-by. 

And during this 'people-watching-activity' [;)] I have come across many gorgeous, well-dressed females (and males!) on the streets. When I see them I always end up picturing them as 'fashion bloggers' who are posing to take pictures. Well, its all happening in my head but it seems quite real [yeah! yeah! I am crazy! I day dream in detail!]. 

But what's interesting is that everyone on the streets stands out individually but then as a crowd they all seem to get lost among each other. So I can't help but deduce that while many of us might dress well and look good by ourselves (on our blogs!) the real test is when you shine in the crowd. And it is not the clothes that will help you shine there, it is your personality! Clothes can only get you so far (may be get you a free pass by the bouncer!) but once you are inside you need to have more. You need to have it all - charm, personality, and class! Clothes, my dear do not make a person.

  2. CAN AGREE MORE!! You got it right! I always always stick by personality. Never judge a 'person' by their clothes, meaning, I might think 'what's that dress?' but not 'how ridiculous is she/he' or the sorts. Trust me hon, personality/charisma makes the simplest of outfits work. :)

  3. I agree wholeheartedly with what you say (but of course!)... clothes don't make the person... it is the layers under the skin that do...

    I love people watching!!! ... funny... I know that sometimes I dress as 'out there' as I do as way of being 'invisible'... people are so busy checking out what i'm wearing and focusing on the exterior that they forget to look at ME...and this gives me all the time in the world to look and study and analyse them. It's a tactic I work to my absolute advantage as a journalist.

    I love these pics my Tanvivacious!!! I still think we need to see video tutorials...!

  6. Firstly, that pizza on Iranian bread does look really great.

    I love people watching as well. It's so true, it's your personality and confidence that makes you stand out in your crowd, not your clothes.

  7. Interesting observation, i think clothes become a part of your personality. So be true to yourself and your taste to truly shine in a crowd.

    PS: Pizza looks yum!

  11. That was a really interesting post! I often see people in the streets that I would like to take a picture of. And they're often not the kind of people who would have a fashion blog. An elderly lady, a cool-looking Heavy Metal fan, etc. I always thought these people draw my attention because of how they are dressed, but maybe it's really the attitude behind it that makes them stand out.
    (Uhm.. sorry for this long comment!)

  13. What you wear indeed speaks a lot about you but like that quote what one eats also maketh a man!
    And ur on track Tanvi..Ur mostly into healthy food.
    However this Pizza confirms a fact that you also give in to normal human cravings like me..hehehe..
    ;)

  14. YUM that looks delicious!

    And I don't really know what makes people stand out in the crowd. I think it can be a whole host of things - their outfits, the way they carry themselves, their expressions... I am much more drawn to people who are laughing and smiling and having a good time as opposed to those who look bored and irritated (e.g. most Londoners!) Haha

  15. You are such a wise woman, Tanvi.
    That pizza looks amazing and I love that shot of you in your pinny! xxx

  16. So right, Tanvi, clothes don't make a person and individual styles often go under in a crows - I still find that many well-dressed individuals make for a more appealing vibe than a lot of slobs, no?
    Wonderful example of the fact that pizza is a truly international dish. Yum!

  17. I love the quote...That pizza looks amazing and so yummy:)...You have a lovely blog:) kisses and hope to see you soon

  18. I absolutely agree with you! Clothes do not make a person. I am a big people watcher too and it's not necessarily the ones with the most interesting outfits that catch my eye.

    And what a delicious looking pizza. Makes the one I made last week seem very boring! :)

  19. i've never had iranian bread - but it looks TASTY! :D

  20. I totally agree with the quote you chose! Clothes definitely do not make a man........his personality & character makes the impression that lasts........we may forget what a person was wearing on a particular occasion, but we won't forget how he behaved...... :)

  21. I'm such a people watcher! I always find myself checking out what other people are wearing and sometimes even end up asking them where they got something haha.

  22. This looks so good!!!! I just made shrimp tacos. Like I said before you're beautiful and you can cook and you're smart. You are awsome.:)

  23. Very interesting reflection. We all have those good dress days, but it would all go to waste if we don't show off our 'GOOD side and AMAZING personality' with it. Pretty much like "A smile completes your look'.

    Had a yummy starbucks today and missed u loads!

    Yummy pizza. Lucky Ashish!

  24. WOW! This looks amazing. My husband and I are always making homemade pizza, but this we should try.

    Great blog.

  25. The pizza looks so good! But yeah, I totally people watch and I imagine them taking pictures. An outfit may look good in one situation, but in a picture online it might not look that special, or the opposite can happen!

  27. Ah, couldn't agree more.

    Personality is what makes you who you are, the genuine you. Clothes are just a way of wrapping the same concept in an accessory sorta way to drive home the idea of you. Make sense?

    And I am replicating that pizza come weekend.

  28. Confidence in what you're wearing makes a huge difference. When you're comfortable with your outfit, it shows, and the people who are comfortable and confident (and stylish) are always the ones that stand out.

    And that pizza looks really yummy!!

  29. I'm telling you, food network! happy monday Tanvi!

  30. I hate Pizza but this one looks too good..I will have to get cooking lessons now.

  31. Another really yummy looking preparation! I really need to pick up some of your skills!! Also, what you said makes perfect sense. Personality bolsters and expounds on good fashion sense to make the whole person stunning. You can't just rely on one (yes, I really believe that how you dress is such an indication of your person) or the other.

  33. OK, I have to admit Pizza is one of my favorite take outs. This one looks devine and there is nothing bether than a homemade pizza from scratch.

  34. Ooooh...I love people watching too!
    But instead of just clothes...i would try to probe behind the faces they wore!

    It used to be my favourite pass time when i had loads of time to spare!
    Think what kinda life he/she must be having...cooking up my own premise of the kinda chemistry that may be between a couple n the like!

    Now if only random strangers could confirm is I was even half good in my analysis!:-)

  35. People watching is one of my favorite hobbies, and its one I never tire of. You make some great points here and I agree.

    That quote is right on - what is underneath the clothes is what counts (and I am not talking about underwear, although that is important too!) LOL

    Also - now I am hungry. Thanks a lot. ;)
