Sometimes you often wonder, why do some women become the epitome of fashion whereas some strive for little appreciation even after wearing an expensive diamond necklace.
Well, I believe that beauty is not the cause. For I have noticed some of the most charming ladies being bugged with similar kinds of hassles. The reason is, most women simply follow the stereotyped fashion trends and do not get noticed among the crowd.
The idea is, that you have to dress differently in order to look different. I guess, jewelry happens to be an important part of fashion. Therefore it is necessary that you make some changes in your jewelry box.
To start with, I must say, that simple elegant jewelries are out. Gone are the days of a simple chain with a diamond pendant. Ladies are no longer totems of sophistication. Just try out something much more dashing. Accumulate at least …
Many high-quality, 100-percent cotton shirts can be found for as little as $10. These shirts are so deeply discounted because they are manufactured in extremely large quantities and on cotton, instead of silk or rayon. Also, these shirts tend to be made somewhere other than Hawaii, although the only way to tell is usually by the shirt’s tag. When buying a cheap Hawaiian shirt, make sure to look at the seams. The fabric should be tightly sewn together without any loose threads. Further, the cotton should be thick enough to not tear easily.
Discounted Hawaiian shirts are another way to go if you are looking for a quality shirt that is inexpensive. When a Hawaiian shirt is discounted, it usually means that the shirt was from “”last season”” – although for Hawaiian shirts this means little – or that the design was mass-produced. When a certain style is printed too …
Cleaning the Leather
The first step to leather care is keeping your leather clean. This can be accomplished with a soft, moist rag. Old diapers, washcloths or clean shop rags work fine. Wipe the leather in a small, circular pattern to remove any surface dirt and grime. For heavier soiling, use a small amount of liquid soap, making sure to wipe with a clean, wet rag to remove residue.
Using quality soap
Several times a year, it’s advised that you use a quality leather soap to deep-clean the material. Follow this with either a moisturizer or oil specifically developed for leather products. The use of the moisturizer or oil will keep the leather from cracking or tearing. These products can be purchased at most large chain stores or at stores that specialize in western gear.
Using Bristled Brush
Use a stiff bristled brush to remove dust, dirt and grime from …
The first appearance of the Tuxedo was in October 1886. It was the first Autumn Ball of the Tuxedo Club. Griswold Lorillard and his friends who wore the wardrobe that was to be called the “Tuxedo.”

Now, just a few more tips to look military chic!
- Wear your military style jacket or coat overtop your favorite jeans and with a lightweight or sexy top underneath. You can keep your clothes simpler due to heavy embroiders, embellishments, epaulettes, ornaments and the like (especially so if you’re lucky enough to find a really fabulous overcoat or jacket.)
- Remember, the look you’re going for is not soldier camo (which to some onlookers may be in poor taste – given the times.) You are aiming for a classic officer class look, cooler and Russian romantic. Fur trims are keys, shiny brass anything, dressings up on the shoulders, and don’t forget signature long shiny leather boot-wear.
- Keep the overall feel of the outfit hard (with a bit of mystery of course!) How? Lots of black, very fitted, waist-accentuating and buttoned-up chic. If the jacket is long, opt for a belt if
Below are some tips in choosing shoes that look like designer shoes but have no designer prices.
Although buying real leather can be more expensive than buying synthetic leather, the cost will be much cheaper in the long run because leather is more long lasting. You can actually use a pair of leather shoes for a long long time. Just make sure that you store them properly, in areas where it will not be moistened as real leather can become home to molds.
Choose the classic
You don’t have to buy Ferragamo or Jimmy Choo to look good. There are designs that will look just as expensive without being really costly. Because you cannot really buy every design in the store, just choose classic designs that will fit your wardrobe.
Choose the fit
Designer shoes may look designer on the shelves but when you wear them, the shoes …
Auctioning websites such as e-bay offer a lot of authentic vintage designer bags. Although not all of them are really authentic. So here are a few advices on how to tell a fake from the real thing.
- First of all, if you really are considering buying what somebody else is offering make sure you get a lot of pictures of the item. Some pictures should be real close up, so that you can see the stitches, the leather quality and so on. Do the homework, study what the real thing is supposed to look like on the official websites. (Louis Vuitton, for example, has close up pictures for most if not all of the items they offer.)
- It is a big plus if the exact same model is still for sale in the official store, so please, study carefully what it looks like. You can either do it online, as
In Persian, ‘Shahtoosh’ means ‘King of Wools’–a perfect description for an ultra fine wool that’s softer than either Angora, Pashmina and Cashmere.
Shahtoosh shawls are so incredibly lightweight that they can be passed through an average sized finger ring, hence their common name, ‘Ring Shawls’. The reason they’re so light is because each hair of the Tibetan Antelope is around 6 times thinner than the average human hair. That’s a very fine hair!
Each shahtoosh shawl requires about 350 grams of wool. Being as each Tibetan Antelope yields no more than 125 – 150 grams, it takes the wood of three animals to make just one shawl.
You may be wondering why there’s so much fuss about shahtoosh shawls. We take the wool of plenty of other animals, after all.
That’s true, but the Tibetan Antelope is different.
In order to collect the fine hairs, these beautiful animals have to …

Fishnet stockings were controversial, as they are termed too bold. And because of this, women were not comfortable wearing them other than for wild parties or in intimate situations. The other concept was that women who used to wear fishnet stockings were never taken seriously. Until society was ready to accept them as fashionable apparel, it was better to wear them at wild parties or during romantic moments to bring in the element of excitement and tease.
But now the trends all over the world have changed. Society has finally accepted them as everyday wear attire in advertising, the media, and arts agencies. It is still not acceptable for power meetings and places like banks, consultancies and law firms where the custom of conservative dressing still prevails.
The new trends have even paved a way for new colors of fishnet stockings. The new colors introduced by leading designers are magenta, …
