Howdy?

1:01 AM

June seemed like a really short month to me. It got over in a blink of an eye. In fact I didn't even realize that it was over until I had to literally type J.U.L.Y. And now, on the contrary, I feel July has been a really long month. I cannot wait for August to come. Every morning I wake up and feel, 'Is it still July?

No particular reason for my eagerness though. It is not like I am looking forward to something particular in August. Mentally I am just done with July and the calendar simply hasn't caught up. 

Over to the outfit ... I had bought the black lace dress earlier this year in the anticipation that we might go to a beautiful-beachy-location for a holiday or weekend and I would wear this and run around in the sand and water. However, the chances of that happening this summer are absolutely null, so I decided to wear it already. Why wait, right?

Crochet Dress - Free People partly paid via Gift Card from SF [11']
Shoes - Moschino [Gift from Namrata 11']
Hat - Nine West [08]

Before I sign off, Thank You so much for the wonderful feedback on my previous post. I do not feel comfortable in front of the 'moving' camera. Mute and posing is more my thing! Nonetheless I am glad that it was so well received.

  21. Now THAT layering is again something that I have learnt from you. After the belt knot, you have again come up with something that I would love to try. You are a genius!!
    Love the pictures!! You look so elegant with that hat on. I especially liked the pics where your head is bent down... aahhh so English :)

  44. OMG! I love this combo! I would have NEVER thought to buy a dress like the crocheted one because though, I'd have liked it and WANTED IT, I wouldn't know what to do with it.

    This Tanvii, is the VERY reason I love your blog and a few other fashion blogs, this was a fresh idea and I'm so inspired.

  53. I have a stripped dress from H&M that I cannot wear because it shows all my curves. I was going to turn it into a maxi skirt. Now thanks to you I know how to wear it. I just need to wear a lace or sheer dress on top of it. U r a genius (and I am sure you have been told before)

  56. I feel the opposite - every day closer to August means less hope we'll ever get a summer this year. But it's like that every year in the UK...
    The lace dress is smashing, Tanvi. You should wear it ALL THE TIME. I think in winter it would go well with a sleek dress underneath, or leggings?

    ReplyDelete
  57. Lovely lace overlay! Great idea to put it over a maxi, I bet you can rock it over a skirt as well.
