Hi everyone, on Sat night I found myself at an authentic Indian nye party in full Indian style and costume. I can tell you that in my western clothes I felt about a million times under dressed than everyone else. The room was a sea of Sari`s in every color of the rainbow! And the jewellery, wow, I couldnt wait to tell everyone here about the way everyone wore so much! Apparently the bride recieves jewelery as her wedding gift, and in traditional times this would give her something to sell if her h. died etc. Well, I could see the way everyone tried to outdo each other, but it was all good fun to watch the eye candy. There was much bright orange gold which looks devine on the Indian skin. Diamonds were everywhere, but not firey ones as far as I could tell, so Im guessing all were bought for size and brightness but not cut! ETA, the girls told me that the spectacular jewellery that they were wearing is only worn with their saris and not with their western clothes! Ap-parently the sari lends itself to looking fab. with the woman being covered in jewels from head to toe! Sorry that I dont have any photos, I only had about 20 minutes notice that I was going to this event, and was very unprepared! I was the only blonde blue eyed person there!!!
