Me and Accessories

My relationship with accessories date way back in the early 2000s.
When I was in my 5th standard I took part in a school cultural dance, where we performed Dandiya, a Rajasthani folk dance. We had to wear beautiful Ghagras and heavy jewelery. At that time, I still had the typical round gold earrings, the very ones used to pierce my ears when I was only months old. I had a hard time convincing my mom I wanted real gold no more. I wanted to wear the fancy one-thus the start of a near addiction.
I became obsessed with earrings, although my mom didn't buy me much, I got them as gifts a lot. Maybe people knew it was the safest thing to give me as I'd like it anyway. I still own about 25 pair of "wearable" earrings now.

With time my obsession is shifting from earrings to neck-pieces and rings. This also has to do with self-realization: knowing what suits me better. Earrings, I feel, tend to make my face too crowded. Lol. I wish I could explain it better. Earrings look better on people with sharp features and a clear skin. Although this fact is not going to change my love for it, hehe.
On Saturday, me and my friends shopped in Paharganj and Janpath, both known for it's cheap ethnic and thrift stores. We bought a lot of stuffs with full satisfaction, knowing that you're money has been spent well and wise.

These are two of the neck-pieces I bought. The first one from Paharganj and the second from Janpath.
What my mom used to say about me is true, I would always think twice when it comes to clothing, but accessories? If I love it, It's mine.

Ciao.
