Phew! ... Finally :o)

Nice shot, eh? ;)
Dress - Gift [Aunt '09]; Cardigan - Calvin Klein [Dubai 1999]; Belt - Express [08']; Shoes - Tehran [07']

Pendant - ASOS [10']; Husband - Delhi [07'] Haha!

I love college campuses. I have been to a few on them while visiting my friends or cousins all around the world. I love the energy and the young crowd. Besides, I love people-watching [hobby!] so it's always interesting to see people running around, getting to their classes, grabbing a coffee, meeting friends. It's the best place to catch some 'serious-street-fashion'. Sometimes I even wonder how these 'poor' [pun intended] students have so much money [and time] to spare on fashion? I seriously didn't. 

Last weekend was my husband's Graduate Convocation Ceremony. He is 100% a Ph.D now [Yay!]. The above outfit is what I wore and below is what other guests wore [strangers!

A reallly old lady - I luurrvved her hat!

No Comments!
Really? For a Graduation Ceremony?
Now ... her I liked. You?
At least was venue-appropriate!

Wish I could take more pictures of the crowd [there was an interesting mix of people there] but we were quite busy posing ourselves and clicking my dear husband in his robe :) He is very 'picky' when it comes to his pictures. So I will have to take his permission before I post any of 'his' pictures! Till then make do with this mobile-clicked-shot which I know he approves *wink*



  1. YOU look fabulous but of course...! Love the first shot!!

    You get really good gifts from aunts, etc!! they seem to know your taste or else you just make evrything they buy look fabulous!!!

    I know what you mean by campus grounds, it's all that "future minds and decision makers of our world" buzz in the air!

    I'm with you re the VPL Canary! What a lovely body she has, great back and shoulders but urgh... I don't like the material of that dress, it's awful unflattering lycra nylon mix!

    I like the blue/white dress... that would soooo fab on you!!

    Congratulations to your husband!! Is he going in to research or teaching (professor)?

  2. Love the first shot Tans! Look beautiful!

    And your dress is just gorgeous....I like that blue dress too...

    Oh, I would love to go back to further...just love the high energy vibrant environment..v unlike work! :) even if there wasnt enough money back then, life was funn..learning was funn!

    Anyways, congrats to Ashish! And wish him all the very best for his future endeavours!

  6. UT Austin? This campus I've been to, and I largely agree...I remember seeing girls totally decked up in very fancy clothes...I rem feeling *how much time* too ;)

  7. I am working at the MS Society of Canada. I worked there last summer and I really enjoyed it, and luckily they liked me enough to ask me to come back again this summer!

    That first photo of you is really wonderful! You look so pretty in that dress! The whole outfit is suited perfectly to a graduation ceremony. The yellow dress however... but tacky for my taste. But I do approve of the old lady in the fancy hat, and the girl in the blue and white dress!
