Your biggest fashion obsession.
At my age, obsession over things and fashion does not exist; therefore there is nothing particular that I would wish to buy. I believe that investing in products should be worthwhile, comfortable and useable. Buying one good commodity instead of ten would be of more value. I love good shoes, handbags, watches and saris but comfort is my main priority as being comfortable in what you wear makes you elegant and graceful.
