The Great Saree Adventure pt 3


Welcome to today's installment of the Great Saree Adventure, and thank you for the comments on previous posts, knowing you are following along has made this twice as much fun.

Tonight I found myself again at Mrs. J's house, this time along with my friend S.  Master Ji the tailor arrived with the beginning of my shirt (he wanted to check the fitting before he finished.)  As is typical for me here, the chest was a bit tight, but other than that it looked great.  He even agreed to make a petticoat for me to go underneath and to tuck the saree into - so all my clothing needs will be taken care of by Friday evening.

Which means I was able to move on to the really fun stuff - jewelry.  While I was in the saree shop, the attendants recommended antique gold jewelry, which fortunately for me I've been dying for an excuse to buy.  I stopped into my favorite jewelry shop, but couldn't get past the sticker shock on the first visit so I walked away.

Days later I was still dreaming of the pieces I'd seen, so I caved in and decided to treat myself, but only after a bit of haggling to get the price down.  I walked back into the store, they instantly recognized me, and before I was to the back where the good stuff is, they had the pieces I'd fallen in love with set out just waiting for me - I decided it was karma.

So with a shot of my sparkly, sunny new jewelry, here's a little Steve Azar"
