Embellishments

Embellishments come in lots of varieties.  They can be in the form added gadgets, more chrome, slicker packaging, bells and whistles, lots of make-up, bling, and even dandy clothes.  Embellishments are regularly added to products, services, and yes, even to people. 

Embellishments are mostly about looks and have little to do with substance or primary functionality.

More often than not, embellishments are pricey enhancements that serve one of two purposes:

     1) They provide the illusion of "better."
          OR
     2) They are there to hide some deficiency or flaw.


We can buy embellishments (literally and figuratively) if we wish.  It's just important to remember what we're getting (or not getting) with the purchase.  

Let the buyer beware.
