Another month bites the dust. As per usual, time is flying. August was an exciting month. There was a lot of travel which I never complain about. Some of it has been documented on the blog and some of it on Instagram. If you are on IG, you can view all my travel picture by searching for the hashtag #TanviOnTheGo
As for the blog, there weren't any wise musings or thought provoking content but there was a lot of sartorial experiment, if you may! Talking of ... this was the most viewed outfit post of the month. And this was second most ...Other than that, it has been pretty routine.  
Thanks to everyone who participated in the Karma Mantra Jewelry Giveaway. Click here to find out the winner. I will continue to host Giveaways for you in the coming months. Look out on Twitter & Instagram for updates!
Last but not the least I am gonna take a short break from blogging. I will be back soon. Be good and don't do anything I wouldn't (;

Three Ways To Style Basic Denims

Three Ways To Style Basic Denims, Tanvii.com

Who needs help styling jeans, right? We all wear it. Practically everyday. Well, you'd be surprised. A lot of people do not buy the right size, a lot of people never get them altered. And they never wear it with anything except their same-ole T-Shirt and/or blouse. So I thought it would be a good example to show how you can take that *same* pair of jeans from travel to evening out to office wear. This might not fit everyone's lifestyle but at least you can see that you have options. And who doesn't like that, right?

Random-o-sity

10 Random Things On My Mind:
  • Did you catch Beyonce's VMA performance? It was quite something, wasn't it? [MTV]
  • Talking of Beyonce, this desi girl slayed her! [YouTube
  • Do you struggle with HTML coding like I do? This cheat sheet is helpful!
  • I had been lost for a while, but I believe I am finding my mojo again. 
  • I love Kangana's interviews. She is candid and brave. I recently saw the one she did your Anupama Chopra's [YouTube] channel. 
  • I have been extremely lazy for the past week or so. Don't feel motivated to exercise or cook. Those are supposed to be two of my favorite activities after blogging!
  • I need this maxi skirt in my life. Yes, need! [Source]
  • I feel internet has made everyone overtly sensitive. One can't bat an eye lid without offending someone or the other.
  • Is it just me or was summer really short this year? I didn't even get through my pile of shorts yet.
  • I got a hair cut last week. And it was for the first time in the history of this blog that we didn't do any outfit shoot to document it. You can view it here though.

Fashion Observations at #Emmys2014

First things first, it was a bloody boring show!!! Usually I had to stay up till 10:00pm Central Time, but now I had to stay up till 11:00pm Eastern Time - and for what? Sheer-boredom! Had it not been for the movie stars (I am looking at you Matthew McConaughey and Julia Roberts) I would have never bothered. 
Anyhoo, below are some of my fashion observations from last night. Unlike last year, there are A LOT of pictures in this post. I stayed up that late, might as well make a post out of it, eh? 
Observation One: Looks like everyone got a Memo to dress in Red / Blood Orange?

... you thoughts that was it? ... Nope! There's more orange!

Observation Two: If it wasn't Red/Orange, then it was white which was all over the red carpet!

Observation Three: When all else fails you can always rely on a little bit of shine and shimmer!

Observation Four: Couples who looks sizzling together! First one, of course, being my favorite!

Observation Five: The people who dressed age and body-type appropriate!

Observation Six: The Meh-to-the-WTheyyy What on earth were these people, or rather their stylists thinking?!??!
Fashion Observations at Emmys 2014, Tanvii.com
Observation Seven: People who brought color (other than orange) to the carpet!

Observation Eight: Lastly, the show-stopper gown, worn by Lizzy Caplan who was also a winner!

View From Liberty Island

Being in the north-east means frequent trips to New York City. After all it is just a few hours drive now. On our last trip, we indulged in some touristy activities. It was fun, since I was re-visiting these spots after 15 or so years! 
Though nothing has changed there ... except this time around I can document it on the blog. You see, I didn't have a blog back then or interest in photography! ;)
Traveler's Tip: While planing your trip, purchase the tickets in advance. You would save a good hour or two. Especially on weekends. The lines are long and slow.  
P.S. This was the outfit from this day!

This is my favorite skirt since last year. When I can't decide what to wear, I automatically reach out for this and voila! I have a chic look ready. This skirt literally never lets me down! (: Now really looking forward to adding a few more midi-skirts to my wardrobe. This one looks really interesting. 
P.S. Also here is how I recently wore this skirt at an event.

Are You Bold Enough For Orange Shoes?

Look who has been making appearances on the blog so frequently now. Ahem Ahem! Either my photography has gotten better (in his opinion) or he has gotten comfortable with being in front of the camera. Either ways, I am happy to share this space with him. So far we have only been able to capture his weekend style. I need to make time and take pictures of his office-wear. He looks damn sharp! (;

Maxi State of Mind

Did you notice I have been wearing a whole lot of dresses lately? All month has been about dresses, well except this & this, but mostly all dresses. Unlike the previous month where there wasn't even one dress. I believe I go through phases. It is either all girly, or not at all.   
For now it is all about light, breathable and flowing fabrics.

Epiphany

Have you ever had an epiphany where you randomly thought, "Wow! I have changed!"? It is even better when those changes are favorable (towards you and others, alike!). I find it interesting that one has the capability to surprise him/herself. 
Whoever coined the phrase that leopard can't change his spots was not entirely right! We all are capable of change. We simply need the will to do so ... and we need to accept who we are ... in order to change. It is definitely not easy and neither does it happen overnight. It is a process, rather a long one ... but it is extremely satisfying to know that you are in control of, not only your emotions but also your behavior.
