From Los Angeles to you…It’s My Other Bag

unnamed-15

 

They are eco-friendly and practical. They are whimsical and colorful. They are My Other Bag.  Tara Martin, the creator and founder of My Other Bag is proud of the fact that these unique bags are designed, printed and sewn together in the USA.

What makes My Other Bag so eye-catching is that they offer a comic twist on the  designer handbags we know and love. The handbags are so versatile they can be used for anything imaginable. My Other Bag is sturdy enough for your groceries, gym or beach bag or a carry-on, the uses are endless.

The pouch below is from their Blank Canvas Collection called Lady Art, and I love mine. It’s the perfect size for a cosmetic bag, or as my daughter says, it’s perfect for lugging her quater for the laundry when at school. Something tells me My Other Bag won’t be holding cosmetics  much longer.

girl

Are you planning to buy a car this year? Do you want to buy a new one or a used one will serve your purpose? Just take a pause and do some effective research before finally buying. Here are some tips that can help you to select the car which will be useful in the long run.

Create A Budget:   Budget creation must be the first and foremost activity before the initial planning, because car buying is an expensive venture. Make sure you can afford the car model you desire to buy. If you are obtaining an auto loan, your calculation must include the operating costs as well as the loan repayments. You can use budget calculation software, if you are not accustomed manually.

Shorten The List: You must have created a wish list of your favorite cars. Now, it is the time to narrow down your list according to your affordability. You can gather information from various sites and can compare the features of different cars. You must select cars which costs less than 5% of your monthly budget so that you can obtain some room for yourself. This gap may be utilized in covering the repairs, maintenance, car insurance, gas costs and the operating costs. You can maintain an electronic file to keep the details recorded carefully.

New or Used: After narrowing the list, you must decide whether you are going to buy the new car or the used one. The certified pre-owned cars can be more affordable than the new ones. For the used cars you are actually paying a higher interest rate, but obtaining more interesting features than the new cars. You can also choose the lease option for buying a high-end car, but should be careful about all the parameters of the lease.

Identify Ownership Costs: The auto research websites can help you in determining your actual ownership cost. You can calculate your fuel cost my measuring the total number of miles you generally drive in a year. You can call up your insurance agent to obtain the best quote for the car you are considering.

Secure Financing: Before going to a dealership store, you must secure your car financing with a credit union or bank. As soon as you visit the dealers, they will convince you to take the loan from a particular financer as they receive a flat fee or commission from them.

Identify The Invoice Price: While doing the negotiation for buying your car, you may keep the invoice price in your mind. Though you will keep a target that the sale price remains close to that number, remember that the dealers are serving costly efforts with lot of overheads. Therefore, they will definitely want to keep their profits.

While doing the research, you must be aware of all the possible discounts that can be availed for buying the car. When you are all set to buy, keep all your researched discounts in your mind. Your research will definitely help you to determine that whether you are being offered with the fair price or not.

Pay Attention to the Blouse to Up Your Fashion Quotient the Bollywood Way

Unknown

 

Pay Attention to the Blouse to Up Your Fashion Quotient the Bollywood Way

For the Indian woman wearing the saree on formal as well as special occasions is inevitable. Not only does it never go out of style with its myriad materials and designs but also because there are so many ways of draping it. As an article of clothing it is unmatched because you can customize it in so many ways that will always be perfect for the occasion. The allure of the saree is considerably enhanced with the addition of the blouse. There are a number of variations that women can experiment with regard to the neckline, sleeve length and style as well as how the back is constructed besides the finishing with zari, silk embroidery, mirrors and stones. One of the biggest differentiators in the blouses is of course in the material; women can opt for rich velvets and heavy silks or the ethereal allure of chiffon, net and other sheer fabrics. Take a quick look at how you can play around with your blouse to look like a Bollywood diva and impress with your fashion statement.

Sleeves

Even though you might not immediately realize it you can really play around with the sleeves of your blouses to create the right impact suited to the occasion. If it is a very formal occasion like a sit-down dinner you can look very sophisticated with a blouse that has full sleeves. Depending upon the nature of the occasion, and the composition of the other attendees, you can also choose to don a blouse with elbow length sleeves, smart-capped sleeves or even introduce a historical touch with the classic puffed sleeve style. Of course, the occasion permitting, you can choose to wear a daringly cut sleeveless blouse to great effect. You can expect websites that offer a great selection of Indian sarees online to also give you a lot of options for blouses too, as each saree needs to be paired with a blouse that’s simple perfect for it.

If you don’t mind being a little daring you can try off-shoulder blouses that have gained a lot of popularity with Bollywood heroines like Juhi Chawla displaying her stunning collar bones in countless films. You can also put your best food forward by wearing a blouse featuring spaghetti straps that can look so very enticing like Aishwarya Rai; however you could avoid this if you have a heavy bust. If you think that your arms are not your greatest assets, then try styles that keep them covered to a great extent. When you want to look chic yet don’t want to overstep the line in a traditional or family occasion, you could easily try a blouse with elbow-length sleeves. For casual parties, especially when the weather tends to be on the warmer sides put on a sleeveless blouse and see all the heads turning your way. Of course, you need your arms to be on the slimmer side and pair your saree well to create an overall look of mysterious allure. Designer sarees can also be very well coupled with blouses that have elaborate fringe detailing.

Neckline

For decades women have been playing around with the design of the cut of the front and the back of the blouse. The necklines that are most common are the basic round and square cuts that work wonderfully well with traditional silk sarees. If you are on the smaller side, you can create a better impact with an oval or rectangular neckline; however, if you are tall then you could easily flaunt a high or Chinese collar to deliver a really sophisticated look. Another classic cut is the sweetheart design that goes equally well with saree blouses and lehengas. You can choose to create a sizzle at parties with a neckline that plunges daringly and with lots of bling on the fabric. There is no tension of going backless too as you can easily get the right amount of bust support with padded cups. It becomes very easy for shorter women to shift the focus with the use of a plunging neckline. If you want to be different you can try an asymmetric neckline that will not fail to provoke envious looks.

Showing skin has never been easier with saree blouses that are backless. You can opt for a completely backless blouse or cover it partially with fabric strips, knots or key holes. You can create quite a splash by putting on a bikini blouse with a large knot at the back. You will obviously need a lot of support to be built into the cups to carry off the backless styles with aplomb.

Embroidery & Embellishments

Along with the fabric and cut, the easiest way of making yourself noticeable is by incorporating embroidery into the blouse material. Bollywood actresses love to make a fashion statement using embroidered blouses.Gold and silver zardozi work can really work exceedingly well with traditional silk sarees, while you can judiciously use embellishments in the form of pearls, stones, mirrors, and other artifacts to add the exact amount of bling into your presence.
