Floral print black dress and enameled jewelry

This weekend was quite eventful: I visited the International Fair Trade, the Jewelry Show, attended the Woman's day celebrations and one wedding party. This floral print black dress I wore to the Italian restaurant where the Woman's day was celebrated. The dress is from Wallis and I bought it two years ago. Still it is one of my favourites. I like the dress' simple cut, its bright floral print and of course the sleeves. They are partly made of chiffon and the chiffon's part is very wide and flowing and has slits.

To accessorize the dress I wore silver enameled pendant and ring, both made in Jaipur by Sankit family, National award winners in this jewelry technique. You can check their site and see their other creations. I really love this type of jewelry.

The Little Italy restaurant is one of my favourite here in Kathmandu. It serves only vegetarian Italian food but the choice of dishes is really big. Sometimes I drop in there just to have a dessert. They are amazing and their Chocolate bomb is one of the best desserts I've ever tried. And trust me, having a sweet tooth I have tried many.

The Gems and Jewelry Show was organised to promote designs of Nepali gold and silver ornaments in the international market. There were 24 stalls at the show displaying modern and traditional designs, mostly in gold with diamonds. Far too expensive for me but it was interesting just to have a look at them. I was especially attracted to stall displaying genuine ethnic jewelry pieces.

The coin necklace has coins with King George V portrait.

And this is a traditional mask decorated with semi-precious stones. A beauty, isn't it?
