Jalebi Bai à la Tanvi

1:01 AM

Thank you for your kind words on yesterday's post. I do know that it is a part of life and we have to move on ... I really appreciate your concern and best wishes. We are back to our usual dance-n-show (pun intended!) on the blog here. The show must go on, right?
   


So this is the new 'item number' I have been obsessed with for months. What does it mean? Don't even ask! It means nothing. That's the beauty of our item numbers. They do not really have to mean anything. They just have to be catchy with some ethnic beats and killer moves. I have previously explained our country's obsession with item numbers here.

So what does the outfit has to do with the song? Again, nothing. That's the beauty of having your own blog, you can connect two unrelated things, just 'coz you want to! You see?

Though in the survey back in May, a couple of people asked for my take on Indo-Western outfits. This is would be one of the many I have already posted on the blog. Just for the new readers, here is the list of my previous posts inspired via Hindi Songs! 

1. Munni Badnaam Hui - Dabangg
2. Zor Ka Jhatka - Action Replay
3. Sheila Ki Jawani - Tees Maar Khan

Tunic worn as top - Added to Shop My Closet
Tunic - GFO, Delhi [06']; Skirt - Fab India [06']; Shoes - BCBG [07']

  2. These item nos are killing me now. every months we get a new item no with crap words. Initially listening munni badnaam.. and sheila ki jawani was good but i am completely over from them.
    You look gorgeous in the pics. love the skirt, top and of-course heels.

  4. I really like this skirt of yours! you wear it in such different ways everytime. Like much. I find this song so unrelated at every level that it becomes amusing then :)

  5. Looking lovely! I love the skirt! And why would you want to give away such a fabulous tunic? Oh well... Good for the person buying it!

    Jalebi bai is my current craze too... 'coz it makes no sense at all!

    This jalebi bai song is not that good, Shiela and Munni are much better.

  25. having lost my father recently, i really could not offer you any words, im still too vacant and hurt inside!!..however, i can understand what u must be going thru.

    on the outfit side, the skirt s beautiful, i wish i had the body to carry off long skirts as i really love those long skirts of fabindia, but due to my short height, i look like a circus tent(thats what my family says so and i feel too!!

  50. To folks who haven't seen an item number it must be puzzling! I get asked why all Bollywood movies are musicals??
    Your version of Bollywood fashion is spot on. In fact it all looks very good together.

  54. Wah wah what colours!!! That skirt is soooo pretty. Sadly item numbers are getting so super lame these days!!!! I haven't even seen the one you've talked about here!! Time to tune into MTV for a change and not just go to VH1 for music!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I always love how you incorporate your Indian heritage into some of your outfits. They are always so colourful. Oh, and don't we all love a bit of bollywood style dancing.

  57. I am sorry Tanvi.. but something like this I would see myself only in nightmare. That top is not classy at all. Neck up you still look good :)
    I am fond of that song too. infact of all item numbers.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Will refrain from commenting on the Item Numbers. Love your skirt. Fabindia did some cool stuff in the past. Now, it's kind of sad.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Tanvi, I love so many things about this outfit! The colors the textures, and THE SHOES!!! Yippeee!

    I'm so sorry to hear about your grandmother. It is so difficult to go thru that and I hope all the lovely comments lifted your spirits.

    ReplyDelete

  62. Love the song....but the song is sure weird in an obvious manner! Mallika always chooses such songs.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Love your skirt Tanvi and I love that it's from 2006! One of the outfits I wore this past week is like 11 years old...with a few minor adjustments and changes it's nice to take old pieces and make them new again. And thanks for stopping by the blog while I was away...I am finally playing catch up here!!! xoxo, Naina

  64. Love the ethnic feel to your outfit, the mix and match of colors, patterns, length of skirt and those shoes....lovely:):)

    ReplyDelete
  65. jalebi bai is also my current favorite.. and you look gorgeous..love the shoes..

    ReplyDelete
  66. Your skirt is aboslutely stunning, particularly the hemline- and the contrast between the bright coloured skirt and the equally bright shoes is just lovely!
