    • Ooooooh, no way!! Small world! That’s the same Shilpi. Met the owner last time. Very pleasant looking and gracious lady (who did frankly say when I was trying out outfits that no way was I a “small” but perhaps I could try to fit into a “medium”).

      Adutha vaati, will look for big discounts there using U’s name! 🙂
