Top Blouse Designs for Wearing Wedding Sarees

 

Designer blouses are the best type of blouses that can be worn with modern sarees. Their charm and appeal is subtle and adds edge to the personality and you get the attention you deserve.

Previously Indian ladies were accustomed to only few styles of draping and blouse types. However, designs have drastically changed now. These days, an urban woman wants to look unique as much as possible. Nevertheless, her dressing sense is reflected in her outlook and appearance.

Saree is a staple cloth in India that has undergone several changes. It has also emerged as a sensual outfit and is even worn at Cannes by the Bollywood stars. There are different types of sarees. Contemporary party wear sarees are different from the modern ones. These are designed exclusively to give the traditional look. One of such saree is the pattu sarees.

Let us have a look on how to enhance the pattu sarees.

New age look

Most of the designer pattu sarees are inspired by indo-western look. With these types of sarees, you can wear noodle strap blouses, halter neck blouses, backless and heavily worked back patterned blouses. You must give special attention to neck designs of blouses. If you want to show off your even toned bare back, you can settle with lace backless chiffon material.

On the other hand, if you want to go for a classy and traditional look you can go with the choli design or look for alternatives with sleeves. You must also keep the color and tone of your skin in mind while making one. Not only should it compliment your skin color, but also your personality.

Most of these designs will include pads that will cut out the requirement of wearing bras. However, you must give your fit properly for having the most suitable fit. Once you have figured out your pattern and styles, you can yourself create a versatile variety of blouses, which you can wear from time to time.

You can play with the embellishments. From heavily embellished blouses to minimal work you should choose accordingly. Wear blouses according to your occasion.

Readymade or boutique designed blouses

You may wear your pattu saree with a readymade laced blouse or one designed in a boutique. Both of them can be mixed and matched. Buying readymade blouses from online stores will definitely save time.

On the other hand if you want a flawless fitting, you must go for a tailor made alternative. Obviously tailor made designs will take time but you cannot get the perfection from readymade. You can also design your blouse according to the pattern, designs, work and style of pattu sarees.

Tips to choose a style for pattu sarees

Style is all about being comfortable & confident. Unless you don’t know what suits your body type or skin, it is difficult to garner attention. If you are tall, you can opt for circular or square blouses but remember that you must avoid V-shaped and U-shaped blouse neck designs. For pattu sarees you can.

What Caregivers Should Know About How Addictions Originate

If you are like most caregivers, at some point during your loved one’s bout with drug addiction, you have asked yourself how your loved became addicted to drugs in the first place. This is especially true if your loved one had a good upbringing with no obvious triggers for addiction. The truth is; however, that anyone can become addicted to drugs, even those who were parented well and loved unconditionally. The following is some information that will walk you through the biological reasons behind your loved one becoming an addict. Hopefully, this information will help you see that you didn’t drive your loved one to their present condition; instead it was their own choices and biological changes that lead them there.

What Happens During First Time and Long-Term Drug Use?
The first time your loved one tried drugs they likely experienced an unnaturally intense feeling of pleasure. This is due to the fact that, through drug use, the reward system in their brain was activated and flooded with dopamine. Eventually, after enough drug use, the brain will actually begin to change as a result of the unnatural flood of neurotransmitters. The brain’s natural neurons will then begin to make less dopamine, or produce less dopamine receptors, which is all a result of the drug use altering the natural balance of the brain. Consequently, there is less dopamine being naturally produced, a term scientists refer to as “down regulation.”

What Happens After the Brain is Altered?

As you might imagine, once the changes occur in the brain, your loved one begins to feel lifeless, flat and depressed as a result of too few dopamines being produced. Now, they need drugs simply to feel “normal” again. Eventually, their drug tolerance and brain alterations grow to such a state that they are then forced to take more and more quantity of drugs simply to create enough dopamine to function. The term for this effect is most commonly referred to as building tolerance to a drug. As a result of this ever growing dependency on drugs, your loved one will begin doing whatever it takes to get enough drugs to feed their habit, even going so far as stealing from those they love.

How Many Times Does it Take for Drug Addiction to Occur?

As mentioned above, the brain changes, cause what we would refer to as addiction. The exact amount of times your loved one would need to experiment with drugs in order to make those changes occur, or become addicted, is different for everyone. Factors such as their genetic makeup and their environment all play a role in how the addiction process works in each individual.

Other Factors That Make it Hard to Eliminate Drugs:

In addition to the changes in the brain, your loved one will also experience mild to severe withdrawal symptoms anytime they attempt to come off drugs, such as stomach pains, nausea and the like. This is yet another reason addiction grows, since the body reacts so severely when they stop drugs, your loved one feels they must keep taking them.

Why This Information Matters:

You now know that addiction is a biological, scientific problem. Yes, it all started due to your loved one experimenting with drugs. However, now that they are hooked, kicking the habit often takes much more than simple will power. Thankfully, drug rehabilitation programs understand this and seek to reduce withdrawal symptoms and reverse the brain alternations, helping those who want freedom from drugs to get away from them once and for all

3 Reasons Cartier Watches Can Bring Classic Style to Wild Wardrobes

 

If you are given to the bold and colorful when it comes to your personal fashion choices, you may have, at one time or another, avoided the classic and timeless. Perhaps you still do. Maybe these items seem too safe or understated, not like the big, loud fashion statements you’ve built your identity on.

The problem is, without aspects of your personal style that are based in the timeless fashion values that have gone before, your look might have the shelf life of a gallon of milk. Classic brands like Cartier have a way of anchoring an otherwise wild style into the bedrock of time-honored tradition. Here are some of the reasons this works.

 

  • If Everything You Wear is New and Crazy, You Might Look Like a Clown. People who only wear clothes that are crazy, colorful, and/or avant garde have a tendency of looking like carnival entertainment, or like members of a traveling funk band from the 70’s. There’s nothing wrong with that if that is your goal. But you’ve got to recognize that consistently unconventional styling takes immense skill to get right. What’s more, it takes a deep understanding of classic styling, with which you are choosing to perform a contrast. Iconic watch brands are a great way to bring classic elements to your otherwise edgy style. These accessories show the world that you aren’t someone who jumps at the latest trends without any consideration.

 

 

  • Classic Watch Brands Hold Their Value. If you’re into buying up fashion trends, you know that not every item in your closet has much in the way of resale value. Dressing up in the newest and the wildest is a bit like investing in brand new stocks. You might get a few big winners, but most of them are going to lose all of their value within a year. A classic iconic watch, due to its incredible design and impeccable beauty, will be worth close to what you paid for it for years. Decades from now, it could be worth far more. All you have to do is go up to the attic and take a look at mom’s bell-bottoms from the 70’s to know that not all fashion choices appreciate in value this way.

 

 

  • Subtlety is Sexy. There are lots of clothes worn by the young and hip that absolutely scream sexy, to the point where the statement means almost nothing anymore. If you’re sitting in a sea of people all trying to make the same statement with the same methods, the message starts to mean very little. Today, by choosing classic brands, you can send a different message: one of subtlety and sophistication. In an era of fashion excess, classicism is a new kind of sexy that more and more people are becoming aware of.

 

Classic brands are having a resurgence in an era where more people are starting to think of burgeoning fashion trends as artificial and fleeting. If you want to update your style with a fashion values of timeless vintage, Cartier is a great place to start.
