First Look at Jaipur

Hi Saucy

Well it's another year and I loved my experience so far. I went to the Complex on Tuesday to collect my costume and I arrived at 4:12pm. I couldn't believe my eyes --- five cashiers and ZERO customers. Nada. Zilch. Awesome. So I paid and proceeded straight to the collection area.

Can you say minimal persons? Just only four persons collecting. This was at 4:16pm. So I proceeded to collect and everything was in place, no missing pieces (I had the same expereince last year so I'm good like that). I love my costume, Jaipur backline. My only caveat is that the belt is skinnier than I imagined. But then again all these belts look like super mini skirts on these minus size zero models so I'm used to that by now. Otherwise, I love. Just a side note, another young lady collected her Mudra costume and I had instant costume envy. Big time. These colors are even more BEAUTIFUL in person. Another woman picked up a Kundalini cosume and that one was just lovely. The online pics did no justice to that costume. IP looking good so far.

All in all, I was done by 4:19pm, that's 7 minutes in total. I waited for my friend to pick me up and I left after 5pm. Still no crowd.

If you can help it, don't stick at all, unless your section's date is late in the week, or you're not in Trinidad early in the week, or you didn't get paid as yet. Otherwise early collection is the business. Zero drama.

Enjoy the pics.
Carnivalcocoa out.

Sari wrap for women's Monday wear. We're enouraged to get creative with it i.e wrap it, cut or sew it to one's liking. It's pretty long.
Don't care for the logo all over the place though. Marse darhling.

Side note: the bikini bottom is cut true to size -- yay for the JLo bubble.
