Gold is tarnish-resistant, but it can get dirty or smudged. Lotions, powders, soaps, even natural skin oils that we use regularly can cover your jewelry and cut down their brilliance. Jewelry cleaning removes any such build-up or residue and restores the original sparkle and shine to make your precious jewelries last a lifetime.
Although numerous commercial products are available to clean gold jewelry, most often water and a mild detergent is sufficient to restore the radiance, and a soft brush helps to gently clean intricate filigree designs and stones. Sometimes it can be helpful to soak the gold jewelry in a solution of one part ammonia and six parts water for up to sixty seconds. It is imperative to dry and polish your gold jewelry with a chamois or soft cloth after cleaning.
Jewelry polishing cloths are an effective and inexpensive way of keeping your bits of gold glittering and radiant. These essential cotton cloths help to remove tarnish and to buff jewelry to look as good as new. Avoid wearing jewelry while in contact with household chemicals,
Here are a few hints when trying to find jeans that will fit and look great on YOU.
- Small flat behind: If you have a small flat behind and your jeans tend to make you look smaller, choose a design with detailed pockets that are high and slightly smaller than those found on most styles. Pockets will drawn attention to the eye and will create the illusion of width and lift. To add curves Wear low-rise jeans in a cotton-Lycra blend. The clingy fabric hugs the body and a contoured waistband will help create curves. Choose a pair that has been lightened at the
thighs and knees to make legs look more shapely. Avoid standard boot cut jeans that have little shape.
- To flatten a tummy: Try a medium to high-rise (no higher than the belly button) in a dark color.
- For the appearance of smaller thighs: Stick to dark colors for sure and wear flared styles that will draw the eye downward and create balance. Don’t wear them too tight or too loose.
- For the appearance if slim hips: Do
You might also want to think twice in putting on those lavish furs she has. A coat is a necessity in the winter season but with just the right amount of being finicky and some sense of style we might just turn this old timer outfit to a fashion statement.
Here are some tips on choosing the best coat.
- First off, assess your figure.
- Highlight a good curve with double breasted coat or choose a design where you can overlie the coat and produce a v-neck style.
- If you are blessed with great hips, accentuate it with a chic shawl coat. Try fur coats that would highlight your hips.
- On a full breasted figure a turtleneck coat would look formal and sleek; it will make your breast appear an inch or so less.
- For women more on the petite side do away from bulky coat as it would make you appear shorter. Choose a single-breasted cut coat. Keep it simple and elegant.
- You can fake an unfavorable figure by choosing
In addition to the fact that canvas footwear tends to be more affordable, another big advantage is that they are very easy to maintain and care for. When you first get the shoes you should protect them before wearing them by spraying them with a cloth care spray or starch. If you have are one of those who has sensitive skin you should wear protective gloves when you spray your shoes and be sure to wash your hands good afterwards. If you have asthma or any other respiratory problem always wear a mask and if the spray gets into your eyes or causes your skin any irritation then rinse immediately with lots of water. These are just really common sense items but I didn’t want to neglect them.
Another great thing about these affordable and durable shoes is that you can easily throw them in the washing machine when they are dirty. Be sure to knock off any excessive dirt or mud first and if the shoes are caked in mud then scrub them with a soft brush and water first. You should also remove the laces and either wash them with the footwear, hand wash them
Let’s face it. A bathing suit doesn’t cover much (some less than others) so we can’t hide behind layers of fabric…or can we?
3 Don’ts For Just About Everyone:
- Boy Shorts or Boy Legs
- String tie halter tops
- The big poofy skirted suits
I had a client who wears a size 2 shopping for a suit and she insisted that she wanted boy shorts because they “covered more.” So I decided to humour her and see if she has learned anything from our months of wardrobe shopping. She tried on the bottoms and let out a yelp. “These are just awful,” she replied. And it is true. They are just awful on just about everyone.
String halter-tops fall into that category as well. Unless you have very pert breasts and not very large ones at that, the string halter is a no-no. That would be followed by the poofy (yes, that is a made-up word) skirts. Many older people will buy them out of modesty, as will heavier women. Please don’t. There are other ways to cover up that won’t make you look like a beached whale.
When shopping for a bathing suit, go to
It feels like a conspiracy. Every year, designers come up with new trends that make last winter’s clothing look prehistorical. Yet you know too well this year’s trends wouldn’t last long. Next winter, you’d be shopping again for trendy clothes.
Put a stop to this. At least minimize the damage. Go back to the basics and build a timeless winter wardrobe.
What you need are classics. Clothes that would look great year after year. Start building a brand new wardrobe by going back to the basics. Get clothing that need never go out of style.
In winter, you need jackets and coats as well as thermals, sweaters, long sleeve tops and pants and festive dresses or skirts. You can go for the trendy designs which go out of style very quickly. Trends like the bubble skirt rarely last more than a season. After that, they go back in storage for years. Instead, go for classics. Wool pants and wool skirts in solid neutrals will always be in style. So would a good down jacket. Thermal underwear are clothes you’d wear to death all winter and probably would be able to wear them for many winters
Levi Strauss started to suffer competition from rival companies who wanted a piece of the jeans market in the 1940’s. When these companies realized the jeans market was going to be a very successful one, they moved in with their own products. James Dean gave jeans a new concept by wearing them in movies about teenage rebels in the 1950’s. Because of this association with rebellion, some schools in the United States would not allow students to wear jeans to school. They felt by doing so they were promoting rebellion. This of course ensured the sale of many more pairs of jeans as that is exactly what teenagers wanted!
The world of psychedelic jeans and painted or embroidered jeans evolved during the 60’s and 70’s. The fashion of this period changed the jean styles tremendously by adding a colorful new look. Sales, along with prices, started to soar in the 1980’s when fashion designers began marketing their own style of jeans bearing their own brand label. The jeans that in past years that had been famous for their ruggedness were now synonymous with designer names and high fashion.
The 1990s saw a drop in the popularity

Black is by far the safest color you could wear for any occasion. A black dress is about the most versatile piece of clothing you own.

It can look subtle, paired with a neutral jacket, or ultra-glamorous on its own with chunky earrings, a bag, shoes and a belt studded with jewel toned rhinestones.

Wear it to the office with a gray jacket and pumps and stud earrings. At the end of the day, take off the jacket, switch to chandelier earrings and stilettos, touch up your makeup for the Christmas party at night, or a dinner date.
When it comes to the party season, that little black dress can give you a different look for every party you attend. Change your hairstyle with each combination and wear your makeup differently each time for a completely different look.
Coach started a tradition and has never looked back, only forward. From the beginning there were only a couple of designs that Coach would concentrate on.

There are various styles and kinds of footwear for women, ranging in a variety of innumerable designs and styles. To help lessen women’s selection struggle, here are some tips on how to choose the best shoes for any time and place.
1. Comfy and Sporty: Rubber Shoes
Rubber shoes are the best type of shoes to keep your feet safe, warm and clean anytime and anywhere.
- Physical Education classes require students to wear rubber shoes because the composition of these shoes is softer and more flexible, which will prevent possible injuries from any physical activity, or unexpected situations.
- For manual car drivers (especially for women), I recommend using rubber shoes while driving because it lessens, or prevents, pain and cramps in the muscle feet. Flat and doll shoes usually have thinner soles compared to rubber shoes which make it painful for the feet if overused.
- More challenging physical activities and sports that demand a lot of running, walking, jumping or climbing require the use of rubber shoes. The dirt, damage and hurt which might be caused by travelling on rocky, rough and muddy roads is also prevented using these.
Make sure that you pair up rubber
Pearls are the classic fashion accessory that has been in style for decades, going back to the days they were mined and sold by pearl traders from the depths of the ocean. They can add a touch of elegance to an outfit. They are one of the only accessories that take an everyday outfit like jeans and a tee shirt and transform them into an outfit that is a little more glamorous. Pearls are best worn around the neck, but also work as a bracelet, as earrings, and even as a pin or belt.
However, pearls do not just have to come in white. They also come in other colors that will highlight your outfit. Some great pearl colors are pink, blue, yellow, and black.
Diamonds are the ultimate status symbol and for many women represent the love of their mate. They are another classic fashion accessory like pearls, though since a woman always wears one if married, they are usually a part of the outfit. Diamonds are one fashion accessory that add a sparkle to any outfit, putting the bling bling that so many desire in these Hollywood times. Diamonds are
Oris watches are a well known Swiss watch and are very popular. The company has a reputation of making timepieces that stand the test of time. Their collections are based on their history in sport, aviation and fashion. The current collections of the Williams F1, Flight Timer and Frank Sinatra reflect these backgrounds.
But what really makes Oris watches stand apart from other Swiss watches is their use of the date pointer. Most date watches display the date as a number in a rectangular window on the watch face. As the date changes, the date flips and the new date is shown in the window. However some of the collections of Oris watches use the legendary date pointer.
The date pointer is a third (or fourth arm if there is also a second hand) that rotates around the face of the watch. In effect there are two sets of numerals on the watch face. The inner circle has the usual hour numbers or marks, whereas the outer circle contains the 31 days of a month. When the hour arm passes midnight the date arm moves to the next day.
The date arm (or date sweep)

Pantyhose are worn for a number of reasons. Sheer pantyhose that match the skin color of the legs can enhance the appearance of legs, making them look smoother. Darker pantyhose can enhance the legs by outlining the shape and by making the legs seem slimmer. Brown colored pantyhose give the illusion of tanned legs; an ‘instant tan’. Pantyhose also has a practical use, as it can provide warmth in colder weather and let one appear “bare-legged” even in the winter. Pantyhose that are knitted with lycra enhance blood circulation by applying even pressure on the legs throughout the day.
Pantyhose are currently a standard sight in offices worldwide, where they have been accepted as part of a professional dress code for women. Though a barelegged trend is now popular amongst younger women, hosiery is still common in offices and places where formal dress is required. Schools with uniforms often require some sort of hosiery as a part of the uniform (usually pantyhose or tights).
Most pantyhose are composed of nylon and a small amount of spandex, which provides the elasticity and form fitting that is characteristic of modern pantyhose. Unfortunately, the nylon fabric is somewhat prone

Just like many good things, stiletto heels too were first designed in italy. They became extremely popular in the 50s. Not only women, but men also wore stiletto. Unbelievable! But true. Stiletto heels would go well with formal outfits. Men wore it to add two or three inches to their actual height and were in a search for better (taller) personality.
After the mid seventies, stiletto shoes were seen more as an erotic content than as a measure to make one taller. Women begin to see it as a source of confidence and power. Of course stiletto shoes were part of bedroom life for a number of couples across Europe and America.
