I received a parcel from Leia on Friday. I eagerly opened it to find this dress in in it. To say that I fell in love instantly, would be an understatement! What I feel for this dress is definitely more than love! :)

Soon it will be 3 years since I wrote my very first post (and 1.5 since I started Fashion Blogging) but even today I have this same redundant conversation with people in my life. At first it used to irritate me, but now I simply find it amusing. Here's a semi-fictional conversation for your entertainment -

World - Hey! How are you?
Me - Good! And you?

World - Good! ... So what's new?
Me - *trying to avoid the topic of 'blogging' at all costs* Oh! Nothing much, you know! Same old. Same old!

World - Are you still blogging?
Me*dang! How did I even think I could avoid this?* Yes! Yes! Very much so.

World - So tell me again, what do you blog about?
Me - *Yeah! Sure for the millionth time...* Well, about everything! My thoughts, fashion, fitness ... everything really. 

World - How does it work? You blog about stuff and a bunch of people read it?
Me - *Yeah! Sure. If 3,000 odd people are just a 'bunch' for you* Yup! Yup! That's how it works. People read and leave feedback as comments or emails. 

World - Oh! The world is getting so 'technological' nowadays. There is no human interaction. I think it is not good how much time people spend on social networks. Blogging, Facebook and all...
Me - *in a little stern tone now* Sure! But blogging is more than just social networking! It is an exchange of information and thoughts about common interests and passions. 

World - Hmmm! But how much can one blog?
Me - A lot, actually! People have made blogging their full-time career option. 

World - Really? Like who?
Me - You wouldn't know them but a.lot.of.people. In fact I met few of them in person, at a recent blogging conference. 

World - Bloggers have a conference now? *in a shocked tone*
Me - They sure do, and about 300 of them attended it, while 1000s followed it online via live-streaming.

World - What happens at this conference?
Me - *already loosing interest in this conversation* We discuss different aspects - readers, advertisements, feedback, etc. It is quite interesting. 

World - I really don't get it! I guess, I am not the blogging type! 
Me - *I already, knew that* ... That's O.K. I am sure you have other things keeping you occupied ... and I trail off to the next topic *hopefully*

...and I have such redundant conversations on many topics in my life - 
Food, Dieting, Fitness, Movies ... no matter how many times we discuss it, 
people go back to the same ground zero whenever we meet/talk again! *sigh*
May be people in real life are not half as interesting as online? Just, may be ...

  10. most people aren't half as fun in person. many people aren't fun even online. so well. same old same old ;)
    I love asymmetric dresses, I know the more than love feeling :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. love the last shot. you look superb in that backdrop and that dress is smashing!

    ReplyDelete
  12. ........ wowwwwwwww! I knew that if anyone could do justice to this dress, it would be you! I won't ever get tired of seeing you in it and I can't wait to see the other combinations you come up with! Adore the makeup in this post toooo.

    As for 'World' - I try to avoid the topic of blogging as well. People who don't do it just don't get it! My strategy is to turn the tables of conversation and talk about THEM instead of MYSELF... that seems to work, and makes it a bit more interesting for me :P

  14. I love that mullet dress on you and worn with red opaques it's totally unique.
    It's just as well everyone doesn't "get" blogging or we'd have so many blogs to read we really would have no time for a life (or anything to blog about!). x

    ReplyDelete
  15. LOL! This really made me laugh! I was having the exact same conversation with an aunt and i dint know how to explain the whole concept to her.. You just HAVE TO be a part of the blogging community to know what a huge deal it is all over the world!

    And gorgeous pics! One of your best so far! Love it :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Loved the convo! haha so funny! :D ..and the stockings.. awesomeeeee!

    ReplyDelete
  17. That dress is a stunner, especially with the colour pop tights!
    I just love some people's reactions to blogging, especially people who think it's beneath them or whatever - mildly infuriating and mildly amusing in equal parts.
    Much Love

    ReplyDelete
  26. haha...we poor bloggers, eh?
    no one understands us as well as we all do..n 3000 is a whole bunch considering you've been fashion blogging from just one n half years...way to go!

    and you seem to look prettier by the post-so I guess another couple of decades this blog would just see the numbers grow from 3000 to 30,000 to 300,000:-)

    ReplyDelete
  27. First off love that dress! How cool are you to add that pop of color in the tights you fabulous woman!

    I feel like as a blogger, we should just walk around with cards that explain what we do, so when people ask us hey you blog, what do you blog about we could just hand them the card.

    You are an amazing blogger and very sweet. Thank you for supporting me and my little ole blog!

    XX!

  29. You look radiant and so beautiful in these snaps

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hahah. We know how it is with non bloggers having thoughts like that. *sigh* I pity them, seriously.

    Oh well, coming to your outfit. I must say you're looking pretty darn good in that dress! I love love LOVE it.

    Also, I'm intensely jealous of your long hair. :D

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  33. That dress is stunning!! I love the shape, color, and fluidity of it!!!

    I avoid such conversations about blogging and my life at all cost; I've gotten to the point where I subtly walk away lol.

    ReplyDelete
  34. LOL, Tanvi!!! you write the best posts. This conversation with the world is all too familiar.

    I adore the dress. I have so been wanting a dress like that. let the online search resume.

    ...and the red tights - POW! Nice touch.

  35. Lol...loved the conversation between u and the world...or shud i say the ignorant world!

    And abt the dress...the lesser i say the better coz its stunning...loved the way u hav teamed it with shocking red tights. :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm torn on what to bring up first--the hilarious conversation that you and all other bloggers have with people or how gorgeous this dress is on you. Ok, I'll start with the dress-the color, fabric and cut of this dress are stunning and you look amazing! Also, I loved your conversation piece. You forgot to add this little ditty though, "how do you have the TIME to do that?" and "I guess I just find it a little self absorbed."

    ReplyDelete
  37. That was a great read. What I love about reading your blog is that you keep me wanting more.

    Now to my stunning friend, I love the tights with the dress. I must say I would have never thought of this.

    You are so creative and I will be trying this in the near future:) Did I mention that your body looks better than ever.

    Love your friend,
    Tanya

    You look amazing Tanvi!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Wow, Tanvi. The dress is so you! It's also versatile. You could wear it like a salwaar top, or even layer it over a contrasting long skirt or lehenga. It also gives you a powerful, X-Men super-hero kind of look...in a good way, of course!

    ReplyDelete
  51. What a pretty dress!!! Loved that you went bold & styled it with red tights. The convo is so funny :D. Your blog has come such a long way and you should be so proud. Totally worth all the time & effort you put in. Some people may not understand or relate but you are doing what you love!!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Oh la la, what a great dress!! I love that you paired it with red tights. I've had that conversation with many many people and let me tell you, it is definitely annoying. It's nice to know that you have a community here that loves your blog and totally gets it!! xoxo

  61. Gorgeous dress! It looks fantastic on you! xo style, she wrote

    ReplyDelete
  62. OMG THAT DRESS!
    Tanvi, you look AMAZING. That dress is gorgeous on you, so is the colour! I love how the red tights really stand out, but it's the only stand-out piece colour-wise, so it doesn't completely overwhelm the dress or look too busy.
    Did you dye your hair, maybe to be a little redder? Because, if not, the colour of that dress even makes you HAIR look good!
    All in all, you look insanely pretty!
    That's a really funny conversation! Nobody except maybe my sister knows about my fashion blog, and even she hasn't visited it, but once I start telling people that I have one I can imagine having very similar dull conversations. It is nice to have online friends/friends whom you originally met online, isn't it? :)

  96. The dress is beautiful, undoubtedly but what makes it better is how you teamed it up with those red leggings. You are clever and that is not restricted to dressing alone. It includes how you handle 'those' conversations as well.
