A Handbook of Costume Drawing by Georgia O'Daniel Baker

 The book,  A Handbook of Costume Drawing by Georgia O'Daniel Baker and Illustrated by Helen Redel Pullen is created with all different time period photos of different types of clothing and accessories. It's easy to view the black and white images and there are so many different styles and positioning of the people in their clothing. 
The book is simple to follow, basically, it's all about the different periods, 3000B.C. to 1969 A.D. and their clothing types. Honestly, this is all I needed! I don't need more information just the ideas of what has been worn during different periods to recreate new fashionable styles or even sew some together. I love that now I have a full visual and it's not difficult to make out, as each piece is large enough and clear to view. The different periods and information about each part of the body can be found inside the book and if you look in the front, you'll find out how to draw the human body perfectly and even get a skeletal view.
Finally, this is a terrific book so simple visuals and easy to read the material. I think it's perfect for what I needed the book to do, design clothing and understand the fashion during those periods of time. So for those interested in the history of fashion or learning to draw classic styles, this is something you should take a look at!

Aomaso Auto Trunk Organizer and Car Visor

Here are two great products for the car by Aomaso. These will work wonders when you're in need of organizing the back of the car and keeping things in place. It can even be great for inside the house!
The Aomaso Trunk Oranizer is made of nylon and is super durable to hold some heavy items and keep them in place while traveling. No more strange noises while driving from the trunk or mishaps, when something slams onto another item.
This organizer is made to keep the many items you stick in the back, well organized and in place. There are two handles, allowing you to easily carry it. However, if the organizer isn't in use, it can be folded down and stored away till it's needed.

Inside is a mesh pouch near the center.
A large amount of room for many different car items and products.
Great for keeping things organized and protected from falling all over the back.
side buckles to keep it together when packing away.
Yield sign on one side which reflects light.
I am in love with the many pockets on the side, easy to stick some small items inside each. Even on the side is a velcro pocket, the name brand on top and enough room to store a few items inside as well! Plus, for something with this capability to hold so much, it is very well made to not break or tear when held and while it's in use!
So it's nothing cheap or easily broken after one use. Finally, it's a perfect addition to any car that wants to keep organized and never have a mishap happen again! ☺

The Aomaso Car Visor can hold DVDs and CDs inside each pocket, with a small visual of the 1/3 of the item stuck inside. So in a way, you'll always know which is which and of course it's small to hold 4 of the top most used ones. Therefore, if you're like me and enjoy the same song over and over, maybe just travel once in awhile then to have a holder that can hold your favorite songs or videos is pretty nice!

Velcro straps on both ends, to attach to the visor in the car.
It's not bulky, heavy or easily broken. The nylon design allows it to hold all the discs in place, and a few other items like sunglasses, cards, money, pens and many other small items. I think even with the color, the velcro attachments it's a super awesome product for the car.
