She wore the best from her wardrobe that night. The Manish Malhotra lacy sari with gold brocade detailing on the blouse, brought out the bronze in her skin so that she looked like an Aztec goddess. There were Swarovski’s on her feet and pure Temple jewelry on her ears, but that heavy Ganesha pendant stole the show, and look how neatly it sat in her clavicle. Perfection! Nothing but the best of the brands to show the kitty party women. She wouldn’t be caught dead in a cheap rip off!
When she entered the party hall with her fifth Hermes swinging in the crook of her arm, her kohled eyes nearly fell out of their sockets. Mrs. M, the cheapskate of the group, welcomed her with an unmistakably supercilious sneer on her face, “Aah, D, you look so ravishing in that Sari ‘too’. Did you four shop together?”
There were three others in the party wearing the same Saris. What a ripoff!
