A Mixed Bag

 Dress - Hand-me-down from my friend Anita [07']
Shoes - Jean-Micheal Cazabat [06']
 Jacket - UO [10']

Something I have discovered about myself lately is that I do not get affected by anyone else's opinion of me. One could say, "Tanvi, you are a B****!" and I wouldn't give it more than a minute and move on easily ... In fact I think I reverse-judge people now! I judge them on what they think and how they talk (even if it is about me)! What one chooses to talk about and how one chooses to lead their life reflects on their mental status and reveals their inner insecurities. I do not wish to get into the details but I am sure you catch my drift, don't you?

Anupama from Volatile Spirits Sushmita from My Unfinished Life, ME :)

On a brighter note, yesterday I met up with a few bloggers from Delhi at Cafe Turtle in Khan Market. It was a lot of fun. Bloggers can never fall short of topics to talk, I realized. If nothing else, we can always talk about 'blogging' it self :) 


Last night I also caught the new theatrical release from Aamir Khan Productions, directed by his wife - Dhobi Ghat - while I thoroughly enjoyed it people should be warned that is it out and out an 'Art' movie (Indie) and might not be for everyone! 


Last but not the least do take a minute to check out - The Guy Behind the Camera 13th Edition - A feature by Tieka over at her lovely blog Selective Potential. You might catch me saying some nice things about Mr. Fabulous. Or you might not. But you wouldn't know till you click the link ;)

  2. I don't know what to say about judging others... I try not to judge anyone (though it's hard, and most of the time I don't succeed :P)

    Looks like a fun blogger meet!

    And I AODRE the salwar kameez you are wearing. Such pretty colors and such a flattering shape! Hope you enjoyed Kingdom of Dreams, I kept meaning to take a trip there but ended up not going.

  11. Cute orange jacket. Love it with the navy dress!

    ReplyDelete
  12. You are a double-threat: I'm attracted to your fashion-style because it's so striking (like this orange jacket) but I'm equally attracted to your wisdom. You regularly give us pearls of insight, like the one today about other people. It's so true. And so mature of you to understand.

    U look angelic in the indian outfit...humari pyaari! :-)

  19. Tanvi,

    You are an awesome person. Now you should be affected by it and feel happy....as I do not lie.

  20. The yellow shalwar is so perfect on you. I've heard a lot about Dhobi Ghat. Perhaps I can see it on DVD when it's out here.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Lovely as usual. I totally do the same reverse-judging thing too...

    ReplyDelete
  22. You look so cute in the first picture.

    So do you care about the good things people say about you? Does it affect you? Just curious. I know many people who don't quite know how to accept nice compliments...

    ReplyDelete
  23. You stitched the suit yourself???? WOW! it's stunning!I HAVE to see dhobi ghaat. I love art films--the artier the better (my brother calls them arty-f@*ty films just to bug me but see if I care!)LOL!

    looks like you're having a blast in delhi!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I definitely agree with you - when people make assumptions or cast negative comments my way, I am more affected by the weather.

    I cannot imagine anyone calling you a biotch. Like really? No.

    You are gorgeous! Love the stripes and the yellow look.
    Blogger meet-ups are always the best!

    :)

  26. The salwar suit is the prettiest and the most elegant stuff I have seen in a very long time :)
    And I quite relate with the reverse judging idea. It really reflects on the other person's real thoughts more than what s/he is being judgmental about.
    And the bloggers meet sounds so much fun. It would be more fun to read about all the topics that were discussed, no ? :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Looks like u really had a good time with blog buddies. :) Yes its always fun to meet new ppl in life.

    Like ur yellow churidaar kurta. :) And i hav been in 2 minds abt seeing Dhobi Ghat...let c i might see it.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I got to get there too.. Sometimes its damn irritating when what someone else says even though incorrect keeps playing in my head.. Its better now though.. Earlier it used to mess up my head but now I move on faster.. Can't wait to be the way u have said it :) And its great to see you had a good time with the other bloggers :)

    ReplyDelete

  46. I absolutely adore your navy dress- the bow on the front is gorgeous, especially peeky out of your striped blazer. The salwar kameez is very impressive, too; especially since you made it yourself! I'm always in awe of people who can sew their own clothes :)
