Last week  I went to a store to buy one for myself.. but on second thoughts I just felt like taking inspiration from what I saw there and created smthing of my own bundle of un-used clothes that have been stocking up ever since I have started to puton a little weight… I understand this problem is faced by every women in India and abroad..
