I will get to the dress in a sec, but first, let me talk about this metallic belt. If you already know this well and good, but if not, let me tell you a secret about Indians, especially people from my home town. They love love gold, not any gold the most expensive 24 carat gold. They actually don’t care if you are rich or not, but if you wear a lot of gold, people just assume that you are rich. And, out of all the ornaments you can wear to show-off your riches, gold belt a.k.a “vadhanam” is the IT ornament. If you wear one of these puppies to a wedding, everyone knows you made it to the top, or at least that’s what people think.
So, naturally my mom always wanted me to get a vadhanam and for some reason, I always hated that idea. Don’t get me wrong, these pieces are stunning with intricate details and exceptional craftsmanship, but for some reason I was never tempted to buy one for myself. I always assumed I hated gold belts. However, when I saw this gold belt on Amazon, to my surprise I really liked it. It was simple, clean and I had to buy one for myself. I always thought I hated gold belts, but now I feel like I just hated what it represented. You have no idea how much trouble I am going to get into when my mom sees me wearing this metallic gold plated belt and not the real one.
Now coming this N & Y Dress, I know, I know I did not have to buy yet another blue pleated Maxi dress, I have enough in my closet. But, in my defense this dress was on sale and also in my favorite shade of blue. What!! you had no idea there were so many shades of blue? Well, according to Wikipedia there are at-least 65 shades of blues, so I don’t have to worry about buying a same shade twice. Also, I think Fall is the perfect time to score some summer dresses, almost all the dresses are on sale and I hate to pass-up on a good deal.
