Stretch Your Wardrobe Dollars

  1. Stick to your most flattering colors – Get a professional Color Analysis done to determine what the most flattering colors are for you. By sticking to those colors, you’ll be assured that they will help you look your best, you’ll have the ability to mix and match outfits and you’ll always look great!
  2. Buy the right size for right now – Clothing manufacturers are not known for their adherence to standards. Don’t get hung up on what size the clothing is tagged as, get hung up on proper fit! If the article of clothing feels tight, pulls or seems stressed at the seams, it won’t last as long, and it will make you look heavier in the process. Buy clothing that fits you well and it will not only make you look better, it will last longer. Don’t like the size being visible? Cut it out carefully, but leave the

Look Fabulous for Christmas

Firstly when you start to put together a Christmas outfit, make sure that you make the look really classic, with a hint of up-to-date sophistication. For example, this Christmas you could set your look with a black waist belt. Going with a classic look I would also choose a bold coloured top and a darker bottom (perhaps black).

For someone with a very slim frame, choose some wide fitting black trousers, a long gold top/dress with a high neck line, with a black sash belt, and some simple gold/pearl earrings. This look can be dressed up or down depending on how your family spend Christmas, this look could also be updated for a New Year party.

For a larger frame, choose a floaty skirt in a dark colour which ends just under your knee, then pick a top in a lighter shade with a deep neckline, and add a pretty …

Tuxedo Styles

A complete tuxedo ensemble includes a jacket, trousers, shirt, bow tie, cuff links, studs, and a cummerbund or vest. If you wear a vest, you do not wear a cummerbund. I would suggest purchasing extra ties and cummerbunds in colors and patterns for a more festive look for any occasion.

Your classic tuxedo, of course, is black but you have several collar options from which to choose. You have the notch lapel tuxedo jacket, the peak lapel tuxedo jacket, the shawl lapel tuxedo jacket, and the mandarin color tuxedo jacket. Personally I prefer the classic notch lapel tuxedo jacket but it really is a matter of choice. The shawl lapel gives the body an elongated look so it has a slenderizing affect.

You then have the trousers in pleated and non-pleated with an adjustable or non-adjustable waist band, all with a satin stripe down the legs.

There is a great …

Gypsy Skirt

The gypsy skirt is one that many find will give them a huge feeling of energy. That energy is one that is often caught up in the feeing of rock and roll, at the concert, and at the after bashes. The gypsy skirt is not one that only those who enjoy music are going to wear, but also those who are fashion conscience. If you really want to look good, you should consider adding a gypsy skirt to your closet collection, so you can pull it out for that date, for the night out at the club, or for that meeting with the relatives that you want to look great for.

Gypsy skirts have a long history one that goes back at least fifty years, where skirts were worn by women all the time. The gypsy skirt took on a new look during the sixties and the seventies when the …

Water Shoes

Winter or wet-weather joggers benefit from netted athletic shoes which are made specifically for running and walking just along the edge of water or watery terrains. Gore-tex lined boots and shoes seem to be a popular choice at the moment and this wonderful material can be found in clothing and other outdoor accessories too.

Making a bit of a come back in some countries is the once popular jelly shoes (or Jellies), which are basically shoes that are made of a porous PVC rubber product known as jelly rubber. Jelly shoes come in a whole variety of different brands, styles and colors. They became very popular during the 1980s and it was quite possible to pick a pair of jellies up for a dollar or less. They can best be described as sandal types of footwear and most probably took their design from the ageless flip flop.

Although jellies, flip …

Clear Platform Shoes

When most people consider sexy clear platform shoes, a couple of occupations probably come to mind. Sexy clear platform shoes are popular in the nightclub setting. Scantily clad waitresses popularized the clear platform footwear for the optical illusion of being taller, with longer legs, and walking on air. However, walking on platform shoes takes some practice and finesse, so delivering snacks and drinks to waiting customers can be a challenge. Also, the shoes must have a level of comfort as well as beauty, or many women might go home with exceedingly sore feet, after wearing the sexy clear platform shoes for an entire shift.

Another group of nightclub employees also have assisted in the popularization of sexy clear platform shoes. Pole dancers and strip tease artists wear sexy clear platform shoes in the performance of dancing and entertainment. Giving the impression of sexier, shapelier legs is a turn on for …

Strass Jewelry

Rhinestones, put simply, are glasses with faceted top and a very thin foil at the very bottom – that way the light reflects and refracts in glass like it couldn’t – because glass is less refreactive tha diamonds – light passes it through, when in real diamonds a full inner reflection is happening.

Chaton Roses are flat-bottom rhinestones (it is pronounce “shayton”). They have Aurora Boreale effect (“Northern Lights”, which can be seen in Northern Poles when millions of ion particles enter unprotected with magnetic field atmosphere). It’s just a matter of simple physics dispersion (hmm, didn’t we all learn this at school), and the laws of the light were discovered in 10th centuries (actually rediscovered in 17th century) and it took centuries to apply it to glass to make it seem like a diamond (talking about rhinestone jewellery of course).

So what are they uses for those little sprkling …

Tretorn Sneakers

Tretorn sneakers look nothing like brand-name sneakers from the United States. The styles are interesting and the color combinations unlike much that you’ll see on a shelf at a local shoe store. If you’re looking for a pair of sneakers that are not only comfortable and supportive but also quite fashionable, than why not give a pair of yellow or red Tretorn sneakers a try? Some Tretorn sneakers are more conventional-looking than others, but some are extra cool looking. And it’s not a piece of cake to make a sneaker look original!

But it’s really not all that surprising that Tretorn sneakers are so special. If you want a sneaker that not only fits right, but is different than every other shoe you see, then why not look to a company whose design is inspired by the styles and trends of Sweden?

Sneakers, after all, have a reputation of being …

Fur Coat

There are three sources for both precious and ordinary furs: nature, fur farming, and the food industry. In the 19th century, nature was the main source of fur. Today the major sources are fur farms and the food industry, which together represent almost 85% of the fur supply.

The furrier is the person who makes fur garments from raw materials, fleeces or skins. Only the finished garment is called fur, and the skin or fleece undergoes several more or less lengthy processes before it is turned into a coat, jacket or cape. The various processes depend on the type and origin of the skins and what is expected of the finished garment. Before the skins arrive in the furrier’s workshop, they have usually already been washed, salted, dried, then washed and dried again.

Fur is still very fashionable in haute couture, as is shown by Balmain’s inclusion of silver fox …

Choose Large Size Women’s Shoes

With over 30 percent of all women’s shoe sales being size nine and above, there is big money in selling large size women shoes. The fact is women’s feet are getting bigger. While women over the age of 35 have an average shoe size of seven and a half, their younger counterparts average a shoe size of eight and a half.

This “growing” demand for women’s shoes in sizes nine through fifteen has spawned many new retailers and shoe manufacturers who specialize in larger sizes. Twenty years ago, a woman with big feet had very limited options in shoes. Now, she can choose from a vast array of business, casual, and even golfing shoes.

It is estimated that approximately 85 percent of women buy shoes in the wrong size. Most often, they buy shoes that are too small. Ill-fitting shoes can contribute to a whole host of medical problems including …
