Chic Accessory: 1 Versatile Bag, 3 Hot Trends, 6 Easy Looks!

Chic Accessory: 1 Versatile Bag, 3 Hot Trends, 6 Easy Looks!

A versatile bag is what every woman needs. The bag should be great-looking, spacious and compliment the trends of the season. I found one such bag at the Lavie store over the weekend, and the easy style, the comfortable size and the pop of colour made me want it immediately. I was inspired enough to pair this bag with the hottest trends (neutrals, prints and aqua) and the right occasions to wear them, with must-have add-ons and accessories.

Take a look.

Trend 1: Classic neutrals (for office)
The bag will hold your tablet, makeup kit and wallet. The sober colour scheme makes it an excellent pairing for classic and casual work wear, from blouses and trousers, to skirts and dresses.

Trend 2: Bold prints (for leisure)
Exotic, tropical, Asian, floral… wear these prints to a movie, lunch date or shopping, grab this bag, and your look is complete!

Look 2- Leisure

Trend 3: Aqua (for holiday)
You need this Lavie bag for your holiday– to carry your sun block, documents, some shopping and even a snack. And the aqua colour scheme is a perfect contrast for your summery bag (and mood).

Shop: Vinegar

I visited the new store Vinegar at Bandra recently, and loved their collection. It’s feminine, quirky and chic. I especially liked their focus on multiple shades of green, seen on everything from shorts to lacey blouses.

The Vinegar Store, the ground floor of ‘Kirabo’, behind Shree Khatwari Darbar Trust, 13th road Khar, Mumbai.

Visit: Monsoon Bazaar

If you’re in Mumbai, check out the Monsoon Bazaar. They’ve got 60 women entrepreneurs and NGOs at the exhibition, selling everything from clothes to jewellery. And the add-ons are good too (tarot card reading, cooking demo, free mehendi).

Monsoon Bazaar at Blue Sea, Worli. For one day only (June 9, Saturday), 11am-7pm.

Relax: Purifying Foot Soak Fizzy from Iraya

If there’s one thing you need after a long and tiring week, it’s a good foot soak to relieve tiredness! Try Iraya’s Purifying Foot Soak Fizzy- Neem, Basil & Mint that cleanses, tones and refreshes feet. Its ingredients have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. Their Lavender foot soak seems promising too.

Rs 95 for 25 gm, available at Iraya stores and select spas across India.
