Girl of the Blogosphere: Tanvi

Name: Tanvi

City: San Antonio, Texas
Occupation: Commodity Trader
Blog: The Fabulous Life of Not-so-Rich and Infamous

Who is your fashion inspiration?
Everyone! Models, Actresses, Bloggers. Inspiration is available in abundance nowadays, thanks to all the fabulous blogs I follow!
What is one thing you always carry in your bag?
I am a hoarder. I cannot carry clutches or small bags. I need a big bag at all times. Since I cannot decide what is more important, I carry my whole world - moisturizer, lip balm, hair brush, band aids etc. - you name it and I have it in my bag!

What is your current favourite fashion trend?
Bright Colored Pants. I cannot seem to get enough of them. Want them in *all* the colors. Currently hunting for one in yellow.
What is the current trend you dislike the most?
I have realized that whatever trend I dislike, I inevitably end up wearing it at some point in my life, in future. Hence, I have learnt to always keep an open mind. And this kinda applies to everything in life.
Why did you start your blog?
I live far away from friends and family (India) so the blog became an outlet to share my thoughts and opinions primarily and then the outfits came a year later.

Who takes your photos for you/ How do your take your photos?
My husband takes my photos and he is really good at it!
How would you describe your style?
What is one thing you are dying to buy this spring?
I want a cute-flowy-white dress. I have been looking for one for a long time but haven’t found the right one, yet.
Are you a shoes or bags kind of girl?
Definitely, BOTH! Although, I end up buying shoes more, simply because bags cost A BOMB. I cannot splurge on them as frequently as I would like!
What is one thing that you regret buying?
I have been stuck at this question for almost 30 minutes and haven’t come up with an answer. Conclusion: I do not regret buying anything that is in my closet.

If you could meet one person from the fashion industry/ a fashion icon who would it be?
I would really like to meet all these models who pop babies and go back to their flat stomachs in a blink of an eye. Also, want to meet all the 40+ models who are still rocking their amazing ‘zen’ figures. [Do you notice I am obsessed with fit bodies?]
What is your favourite vacation destination?
Mexico when I want to relax and sip mojitos all day. London when I want to shop and absorb some culture.
What is one totally random fact you want others to know about you?
I tend to overdose on chocolates. I have no self-control as far as chocolates are concerned. My husband hides all the cookies and chocolates when he goes to work. I get my daily ‘portion’ every evening after dinner. True story.
