Who dresses like that?

1:01 AM








 Jacket - Zara [11']; Tank - American Apparel [11']; Tie - Husband's! 
Jeans - Gap [09']; Shoes - BCBG [10']

Submitted this look for Bloggers Do It Better Challenge at Pretty Shiny Sparkly 

Usually I do not dissect my outfits, as to 'why I am wearing, what I am wearing'. I go with the vibe I wake up to ... Rules be damned! Also, as I have mentioned a numerous times before, I always dress according to the occasion and most importantly the weather. However, this outfit was purely created for the challenge [Prep School] although I have always had a thing for ties. I always wore them with my formal suits (back when I wore formal suits) and no one ever asked me why! Later, I gave away my amazing tie collection to my brother, I wonder if he still has them *hmmm*. Nonetheless, I did wear this outfit and went out in public. Fact! 

Now San Antonio (where I live), though is a fabulous city, but just isn't one of the most fashion forward places in the country. Needless to say in comparison I am always the 'most' dressed female in the crowd, unless I am strolling around Saks or Neiman Marcus but who cares, right? These pictures were taken on a Sunday afternoon, near a school and a church, where there were enough passer bys, I am sure wondering what the heck was going on and why I was dressed like a rainbow! But again, who cares, right? I have always loved hot pink and orange together. It is one of the boldest combinations out there. Plus, I think, brought some sunshine to our Sunday afternoon :) ... What do you guys think? 

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

  20. Awesome combination Tanvi! Can I ask you a question totally unrelated to this post? Well, it's got to do with fitness and u r the best person to answer that. What's your take on Reebok Easytone? I'm tempted to buy them but am not sure if they work, or even are comfortable enough. I would really appreciate it if you replied..since I dont write a blog, I'll come back to the comment section to see your answer. Thanks a ton!

  54. This look is PERFECTION! I love it even more that you are a fellow Texas girl, a place where women (in general) aren't too fashion forward. This is a prep look I would wear on the regular!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I was so hoping you would explain the chair...it's so random and that is what makes it so cool. Just there by the lamp post...hanging out. Great outfit, You really took your own spin and worked it!

    I’d love it if you would stop by and see how a 45+ year old handles “Prep School”—you might find something to smile about anyway! See you there! http://stillblondeafteralltheseyears.com/2011/05/menswear-american-prep-outfits-modeled-by-women-over-45-bloggers-do-it-better/

  60. I believe you when you say San Antonio's fashion sense.

    ReplyDelete
  95. THANK YOU EVERYONE! :) This is rather overwhelming. You guys are totally making my day/weekend!

    @My Random Ramblings - I have used Easy Tone. The first couple of weeks I felt a 'sensation' in my gluteus when I wore them, which eventually went away. But No! I do not think they magically tone the legs. But they might help along side a regular workout. Hope this helps.

    And for those you asked bout the chair - *hehe* It was randomly placed by us. Husband's idea to add props to the shoot. I guess I should have mentioned about it in the post. Thumbs Up! for noticing :)

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  130. Shocking pink and Bright Orange are two colors which I never liked on myself(as I didn't look good in them!!)...but I must say...you look absolutely stunning...despite the fact that both are really loud colors,they don't stand out separately and blend beautifully together as one integrated unit.. :)
