Dress to Look Young

To look young and pretty isn’t really that difficult. All you need is to spend a little time & effort, giving yourself a little touch up.

Tips:

Try out a new hairstyle. Visit a hairdresser, they will be able to advise and styled your hair to suit you, bringing out that radiant in you.

If you are still wearing glasses, why not give it a try with contact lens? You can have excellent peripheral vision and at the same time, ease, comfort and convenience. Not forgetting to mention, a more youthful look. Don’t you love the way you naturally look without your glasses?

Put on some light makeup to help lift your face, bringing out that natural beauty in you. Do however avoid too heavy a makeup; a heavy eye makeup tends to add ages to the look.

Try out new styles; add a little color to your daily wear. Yes, appropriate dressing for work is important, especially when your job involves frequent meeting with clients. But still, that doesn’t mean that you have to stick to the same old boring dull

Wear Bright and Patterned Tights

Choose subtle colours

If you have a feeling you won’t be able to pull off trendy bright fuchsia or lime-green tights, opt for subtler colours like plum and khaki. You’ll still be sporting the hottest look this season, but in a more demure way. Why not take a look at Wolford’s Velvet De Luxe tights which come with gorgeous aubergine and rhododendron options.

Just show a glimpse

If you love the patterned tights look but are worried it might be too overpowering, why not ease yourself into the trend by wearing patterned tights under skirts and boots. This is a great look, especially for autumn and winter – try the latest geometric designs for a cosy, pretty look. Gerbe’s Voilette tights are a hit for when you need to fill the gap between skirt and boots.

Wear them under trousers

You don’t have to wear skirts to wear bright or patterned hosiery. The latest knee highs and ankle highs worn with trousers look just as striking – especially when worn with killer heels! Pretty round toed shoes, court shoes, slingbacks and strappy sandals are excellent choices

Look Fabulous in White

1. White reflects light so wherever you wear it you will bring attention. Having said that, if you have any body parts you don’t want to appear larger don’t accentuate that area by adorning it in white and wearing a dark color next to it. What you can do is wear white from head- to- toe so no particular area has focus. For example, if you have large hips don’t wear white bottoms with a dark top because the eye will be drawn to the bottom. Instead, wear a white top and white pants and use accessories to take the focus away from the problem area. Or wear white on top and black on the bottom.

2. Wear black and white combinations with accessories to create impact. Wear a white skirt with a black top, black shoes, white handbag, and a black/white necklace. Handbags and scarves that have a black and white pattern will also bring some pizzazz. Experiment.

3. To change your look, wear white with bright colors such as pink and green. Again, choose accessories that will add interest. A pink or green bag, pink jewelry,

Dooney Bourke Handbag

About Workplace Wardrobe

We all want to look good but there is a right and a wrong way to go about it at the office. When you go for an interview, as nervous as you might be, make sure you take note of your surroundings. What are people wearing? The first few days of your new job, dress conservatively until you figure out the work “uniform.” Trust me on this, you will not start a new office dress trend by wearing something considered outlandish by current office standards. While none of us wants to be a conformist, there is moderation and then there is downright career suicide dressing.

While we all want to be individuals, a lot can be taken from Chanel’s famous quote, “be a caterpillar by day and a butterfly at night.” I cannot tell you how many times I have remarked “That is a cute outfit but why is she wearing it in the office. It is great for clubbing.” And you know your wardrobe is too over the top when the men in the office are commenting about the inappropriateness of the attire. You should never be the water cooler gossip subject when it comes to fashion.

The Rules of the

Take Care of Sheep Skin Boots

Keep in mind that sheep skin boots are made from an animal’s skin, and animals do get exposed to the elements. They get wet and dirty and they recover from this exposure to the elements, so it is safe to assume that your new boots can be safely cleaned as well. Boots made from a sheep’s skin are in some ways delicate, and they can be easily damaged by chemicals or by scratches and other types of abrasions. To maintain that expensive, soft look of the sheep skin, never use inappropriate chemicals when cleaning. And always use soft rags that will not scratch or otherwise damage the surface of the boots.

The first thing you should do after purchasing a pair of sheep skin boots is to apply a spray sealant type product to the boot. Be sure to follow the product’s directions for use. Taking this step is more of a preventative measure. It will offer a certain degree of protection by blocking soil and water from penetrating into the sheep skin.

When you do need to clean your sheep skin boots start by using a soft brush or a soft, dry cloth. Apply light pressure and simply try to buff

Care for Lambswool

What to avoid

There are two main types of ingredient that may result in the deterioration of a Lambswool cardigan or wool sweater washed under incorrect conditions:

Sorry, but it gets a little technical from here on.

Biological Detergents

In addition to the normal surfactants, emulsifiers, perfumes etc contained in ordinary detergents, the so-called ‘bio’ detergents also include a small quantity of enzymes. These are protein digesting biological catalysts, and are effective at decomposing stains or soiling in which protinaceous material is the main constituent. Egg, blood, and most other food stains etc are all protein based and will be effectively removed by enzyme-containing detergents.

The problem is that like fur and hair, the histological structure of the fibre in Lambswool cardigans and sweaters is based on the polypeptide and disulphide linked protein Keratin. This can itself be affected by the biological components in some of these detergents. It is possible that enzymes may attack the cell membrane complex of the wool fibres, and lead to disintegration of the structure into its component cortical cells, this leads to a hole filled Lambswool garment.

Bleaches and Bleach Activators

In order to increase their apparent cleansing efficiency, some washing powders include bleaches or ‘bleach activators’. These are usually of

About Dress Your Jeans

For low-waist jeans, use navel diamonds and gems to accentuate a cute belly-button. You can also wrap silver chain-belts around your tummy, to shimmer while you dance “the bump”. For a totally 70’s look, add on colorful bangles and large hoop rings.For capris, wear anklets – either a slim gold chain to accent a trim ankle or ethnic beads for a “beach-babe” look. You can also add hip body bags for a sportier look.For cargos, those handy Swiss knives bring action to your jeans, as do large backpacks. You can also wear Buddha beads which bring luck for extreme adventures.For high-waist pants, use large dark-colored snakeskin belts to hide the height of the waist. Never use bright colored or diamond belts – it’ll grab all the attention.For tattered or ripped jeans, wear kerchief belts for a handy-man look. You can also position a kerchief in your backpocket to call attention to a sexy bottom. Don’t use overpolished accessories with the grunge look such as diamond or leather belts – it’s an extreme combination.For loose or baggy jeans, more oversized chains clipped from the belt-line to your pocket give you a “gangsta” look. So do vintage pocket-watches, which bring out the

Fashionable With Women’s Flipflops

No self respecting fashionista is going to be caught dead in her flipflops without a perfect pedicure. If you’d rather pay for your new sandals over a professional pedicure, do it yourself.

Fill a bowl with warm, soapy water and soak your feet for about 10 – 15 minutes each. A few drops of peppermint oil will give your feet a beautiful burst of vitality, or try lavender oil or ylang ylang for relaxation.

While your feet are still damp and warm, gently buff your heels and soles with a pumice stone to remove dead skin cells. Then rinse in cool water and apply lashings of your favorite moisturizer. I prefer a thick, lanolin-based cream for extra oomph. If you’re not out to impress anyone at bed time, apply an extra layer of moisturizer and put on a pair of cotton socks overnight.

French manicured toenails are hot right now. Get yourself a French manicure kit for saucy, sexy toenails or go all out with magenta red or soft pink polish.

Then you’re ready to display your new tootsies to the world. Grab your favorite flipflops and get out there girl!

Celtic Jewelry

Celtic Cross Jewelry

One of the most enduring, and coveted “gifts” of Celtic culture is jewelry featuring the Celtic Cross. According to Irish legend, St. Patrick created the first Celtic cross by drawing a circle over a Latin cross.

For an Irish Catholic, the circle in the Celtic cross may be a symbol of eternity and the endlessness of God’s love. It can even represent a halo emanating from Christ.

Some say the four “arms” of the Celtic Cross represent the elements (fire, earth, air, and water). Others believe the cross denotes the four directions of the compass, and still others feel it is a representation of human existence – mind, body, soul and heart.

Celtic Knots

The most distinguishing characteristic of Celtic knots is their intricate patterns and design…and the debate as to the meaning of those designs. While it is unquestionable that many of the ancient designs had some significance, those meanings changed from tribe to tribe and location to location.

Many believe that the intricate looping in knots was a way to keep out evil spirits. It is also generally accepted that the looping Celtic knot design denotes eternity and interconnectedness. Still, there is no definitive guide as to the meaning of Celtic

Get the Classic Jennifer Lopez Style

The style of your clothes should compliment your lifestyle and the market you serve. For example, dress conservatively if you work with clients in conservative businesses such as banking. In the advertising industry, less conservative dress is the norm. Additionally, many hi-tech firms have adopted “business casual” dress codes.

The color of your clothing has the ability to indicate authority, power and personality. Color can work to enhance or detract from your natural coloring.

Select fabrics that provide value and comfort while being attractive. You might also choose fabrics with transitional qualities so that items purchased can be worn many times during the year. Natural fibers such as wool and silk or blends that look like natural fibers are best-they look good and resist snags and soil better than other fabrics.

Buy and wear clothes that fit or invest in alterations. Clothing that doesn’t fit is unattractive, no matter how high the purchase price. And, remember, clothing that is too tight adds pounds.

One-inch to three-inch heels on shoes are the best choice for women in business. All-leather shoes are more comfortable, longer lasting and better looking. Black, navy, brown, taupe and cream pumps will meet almost every shoe requirement.

Learning From Fashion Trends

Trend-watching–and, more precisely, observing our trend-watching–gives us tremendous opportunities to create awareness of the traits we hope we have but are not sure we do. In fact, being frustrated, embarrassed, or depressed that we have succumbed to a trend is a perfect chance to discover what we value most.

It usually comes down to this: creativity and confidence. If we find ourselves buying that trendy little bag or those must-have shoes, that little voice inside us shouts “Sell-out!” and we start to feel that perhaps we’re not all we’d hoped to be. After all, a truly creative person would buy–or even make–something unique, and a confident person wouldn’t hesitate to go against the current trend and head in a completely different direction, or choose to buy nothing at all.

And thus begins a soak in the self-loathing tub, followed inevitably by an abandoned item at the bottom of the closet.

To avoid this, you must pay attention to it.

What trendy items are buried in your closet at this moment? Why did you buy them? Who were you with when you made the purchase? How were you feeling about the world in general and yourself in particular?

A little mindful shopping will help alleviate the

Stockings

Nylon stockings were scarce during WWII because all available nylon was needed in the war effort. A lot of nylon was used in making parachutes. Production of nylon stockings started up again at the end of WWII.

A new trend in stockings was started in the 1960s with the introduction of pantyhose. Until the introduction of pantyhose, stockings had to be worn with garter belts or girdles. The stockings were held up with clasps attached to the girdle or garter belt. Today, pantyhose are available in a multitude of styles. These stockings come in sheer, ultra sheer, nude, sandal toe, and reinforced toe. Some pantyhose come with built in body shaping and control tops to trim and smooth the tummy, rear, and hips. Women can even buy an anti-cellulite pantyhose. These stockings promise to reduce cellulite appearance by using micro beads imbedded into the fabric. Results are visible after four weeks. The beads remain effective for five washings. The stockings firm and tone legs for a sleeker look.

Nylon stockings come in a wide variety of colors and are also available as anklets, knee highs and thigh highs. Support hose are even available for those women who need some relief from the

Casual Dress Mistakes to Avoid

1. When wearing casual clothes keep your jewelry, makeup and hairstyle in a casual theme. Makeup should not be noticeable – no loud colors; hair should be toned down – no updo’s or glamorous styles and jewelry should match the occasion and dress.

2. Having designer names written on your clothes does not make you fashionable – don’t become a walking advertisement. Also shirts with cute pictures of animals or teddy bears are better left worn when you are home alone.

3. Unless you are riding a motorcycle head- to- toe leather outfits such as leather pants and jacket or skirt and jacket can be too much.

4. Wearing the same color from head to toe is slimming but make sure that you wear some accessories to break it up so the color doesn’t overpower you or become boring.

5. You should feel comfortable in your clothes so, choose clothes you like, that fit well and that are most flattering for your body shape.

6. Take time to decide in advance what you want to wear so you will not end up wearing something that makes you feel uncomfortable. Most people don’t remember what you were wearing the previous day, what they do remember the overall impression you created.

7. Take, as much

Handbag Or Toolbag

Thirty years on, the style and shape of her handbag may have changed, but I guarantee you would still be able to change a spare tyre or prevent nuclear war by poking through the contents of my mother’s handbag.

Alas, it seems to be a trait that has passed from mother to daughter, because I’m the one amongst all my gal pals who can always be counted on to produce a Bandaid for a cut finger, or the perfect lip gloss for a touch up. Oh, and I’m always the one with the spare tissues and tampons.

I would like to ask Dr Freud about my peculiar predilection for carrying the entire contents of my bedroom (and kitchen, and bathroom) in my handbag, but he would probably relate it to some female sexual inadequacy problem. (Penis envy sounds like a good one!)

What never ceases to amaze me is what on earth can the celebs who walk down the red carpet at those gala events possibly fit into an evening bag the size of a matchbox? Heck, they look like they haven’t got room for a match let alone a matchbox.

I always imagine their mother, or assistant, or hanger-on person, inconspicuously lugging

Summer Wardrobe

Now before anyone thinks I am slamming plus sized people, take a deep breath. I am not. In fact, I am one of those plus sized people. Keep yourself from being the object of scrutiny during the summer months by using a few simple principles and some common sense. Oh and if you don’t own a decent full-length mirror, go buy one now.

Be HONEST! What is your body shape? Even thin people have parts that should not be enhanced and those that should. Is it time for me to say it already? “Just because they make it in your size does not mean you should buy it.”

Arms – are yours toned? Then wear sleeveless and capped sleeves. If there is even the hint of flab, keep it covered. OK, stop whining. If you buy the correct fabric, you won’t be hot. Natural fabrics, such as cotton are much cooler than synthetic fabrics. In fact, having your arms constantly exposed to the sun can make you even warmer.

Bust – If you have a large bust, do not accentuate with tops gathered around the bust or with horizontal stripes. If you have a smaller bust, wearing wrap, criss-cross, or gathered tops will

Vintage Desinger Handbag

You will need to determine if the new handbag you are in the market for will be used frequently or are you more interested in the bag as a collectable. There is no harm in wanting to use a vintage handbag, how else are you and your impeccable sense of fashion going to be the topic at this years Christmas party, but it is important to buy a bag that will hold up to the challenge. So make sure you follow some simple guidelines when purchasing your new vintage handbag.

Only buy from a reputable dealer. Many of your questions can be answered and your worries set to ease when you know the dealer has done their homework and has a reputation of being honest and fair.

Obviously, anything that you use often must be made to last. Do not buy a handbag that is worn or stained more then a little. Some ‘wear and tear’ can add mystique, but too much damage only looks used. Handbags can be restored and repaired, but it is highly unlikely you would want to go to all the trouble of having a handbag repaired, only to use it on a daily basis. Also, although most

Check the Purity of a Titanium Couple Ring

Not pure if plated

Whenever buying a Titanium couple ring, there are usually many kinds of finishes that are offered. Right from satin, sandblast to surfaces that are highly polished are available in this metal bands, however, there is nothing to doubt in there. Perhaps, if your jeweler requests that shall be more than happy to use a plating to protect the metal or any kind of coating then it might be time for you to rethink. You must always go for bands by those stores or jewelers that do not offer for protective plating.

Not pure if attracts magnet easily

One of the simplest techniques is bringing close a magnet to the band, if it is impure then it will get easily attracted to the magnet and stick there. Whenever a magnet is held in front of a band the ring shall not get attached but it gets attached to it easily then you might want to rethink. Often metals like stainless steel are added to lightweight metals like these, that make them impure and as a result, they are attracted by the metal.

Wear With Ugg Boots

People are wearing these popular boots to the office, on the dance floor, out to dinner, and while on vacation to the slopes or to the shores. Whatever look you are trying to achieve, you can achieve it with ugg boots. And these boots are not geared towards any one segment of society. Men, women, children and infants can all find a pair of ugg boots to match their size and their style.

Ugg boots are available in many different colors and styles and it is this enormous selection which makes the boots so versatile and desirable. The styles run the gamut from the casual look of the standard three quarter boot in a natural shade to the flamboyant and funky long haired pink boot.

Think wearing boots at the beach sounds crazy? Well, this is what surfers did back in the seventies. In fact, even though sheep skin boots had been around for quite some time, it was surfers who started the craze. Australia is a great place to surf, and since ugg boots are made from Australian sheep skin their existence was already well-known in the

Woman’s Swimwear

Whatever the different types of swimwear girls are wearing there will always be a new style or fashion that will be chasing after. For now though there are only a few main choices.

Now the very first design of swimwear for girls basically would reveal as little as possible while still allowing women to swim freely.

These were the original one-piece swimsuits. They are still widely available, but less and less teens are wearing them now.

Most of the swimwear girls choose are the two-piece ones or the tankinis.

The most popular form of swimwear for girls today is the bikinis and tankinis.

They are mostly worn by the slim teens, but anyone can wear them.

The tankinis are like a regular bikini except for under the top part, it kind of goes down a little further like a tank top. They are pretty stylish and give you a unique look when walking around on the beach.
