A fur coat is a wonderful thing. Enjoy it for many years with proper caretaking.


Tips to Pick Proper Handbag For Your Body Type

If you are slim and tall :

You are lucky! Being tall and slim allows you to get away with most purse styles. Oversize bags, shoulder bags and clutch bags will all look great. The only thing you really need to watch is the size of the handbag you choose. Small bags should be avoided as they will make you look bigger. Mid size, large, floppy or bulky handbags are best. Bright colors, prints and patterns are okay, too.

If you are short and petite :

The most important thing to watch for as a petite girl is the size of the bag you choose. A good rule of thumb is to remember proportion. Small bags work well for small girls. Choose small bags and wear them close to your body.

If your hips are large :

If you wish to draw attention away from the hip area try a shoulder bag. Choose one with a short strap. The purse can be tucked easily under the arm. The best look for you is a shoulder bag or a hobo bag that hangs slightly but ends well above the hip line.

If you are top heavy :

If you are generously endowed on the upper half of your body you will probably want to draw attention away from your bosom or waist. A messenger bag or a handbag is a good choice for your body type. If you really want a shoulder bag try one that has a long strap and is fairly large in size.

If you have great curves :

A shoulder bag that ends just above the waist is the most flattering style for you. The only type of bags that you will want to avoid are ones that are either really big or really small.

If you are a plus size :

Any style of bag that is wider in width like a Hobo bag suit you best. Stay away from bags that are small. A small bag will make you look larger. Go for bags with short to medium length straps.


Tips to Shopping Evening Wear

Decide on the formality. Is it cocktail or evening attire? Cocktail and evening attire is dressier – think little black dress. Long dresses are reserved for formal black-tie affairs.

The most important feature of your new dress is it’s style and color. Not every dress works for all body types. Dress to flatter your figure. If you aren’t sure what is your best asset, ask a friend or salesperson.

Once you know the type of dress, now choose a style. Instead of going trendy, select a dress that reflects classic, timeless elegance. Here are some styles to choose from.

Halter Dresses are one of the sexiest formal looks around. Several version exist including a tie-behind-the-neck look. Straps vary in size, width and fabrics. A halter dress draws attention to the upper half of the body including the face, shoulders and bust line. This is great to draw unwanted attention away from the hips and legs. Skip the necklace and opt for earrings when wearing a halter dress.

Cocktail dresses are the most versatile for special occasions. Most opt for the little black dress which is the most popular look for a cocktail. Today, jewel-tones, bright and rich fabrics do well for a short evening dress. Most cocktail dresses can be easily accessorized with pearls, diamond, gold and silver. If you want to hide wide hips, opt for a dress that is strapless or has cap sleeves.

For simplicity, nothing beats a sheath dress. They are flattering with clean lines to keep the dress from overwhelming your figure. The sheath dress can be dressed up or down as the situation dictates.
The jacket dress provides more coverage without the fuss of a wrap. The matching dress and jacket is perfect for anniversaries and weddings.

Not every figure looks best in a one piece dress. For those hard-to-fit bodies, a dressy separate can do the trick. Choose one special piece and mix it with a solid piece for that special occasion.

Off the shoulder dresses instantly shows off lots of skin but not in areas that make you uncomfortable. Accentuate the look with a great necklace piece or brooch.


Maternity Clothing Shopping Tips

Comfort. The first thing to consider with any clothing, including maternity clothing, is comfort. If an outfit isn’t comfortable, there is no use in wearing it. Quality maternity clothing will be breathable, soft and feature stretch.

Affordability. Just because you are looking for maternity clothing, there’s no reason to empty the bank account in doing so. A quality outfit can be purchased without spending a fortune. In most cases, a nice cotton t-shirt and soft pant with an elastic waist will be perfect. By shopping around and comparing prices, you will find the perfect maternity clothing at the perfect price.

Design. Everyone wants an outfit that looks good, which is why design is very important. An expectant mom often needs to feel especially put together since she will not be wearing the clothes that she is used to wearing. In selecting a color scheme that suits your taste and lifestyle, you will not only feel good in your new maternity clothing, but you will look good too.

Versatility. One of the most important factors of selecting maternity clothing is versatility. This is apparel that you will wear for a number of months, but will not likely wear again. If another pregnancy occurs in the future, most expectant mothers purchase new maternity clothes. Therefore, solid color shirts that will compliment stretch jeans or cotton pant will be ideal.

Layaway. Because it takes a while for new mom’s to show their baby weight, there is time to shop for maternity clothing soon after hearing the good news. If you are short on cash, a layaway will allow you to secure the maternity clothing now and pay for it gradually. Once you are ready to wear it, you can pay the remaining balance and begin to wear your new attire without paying the entire price all at once.

Maternity clothing should be easy care and easy wear, meaning that it is machine wash/dry. The largest selection of maternity clothing, even though also found in local stores, is the internet. A virtual shopping mall of sizes, styles, fabrics and designs are all available with the click of a mouse.

Tips to Pick Right Wig Based On Face Shape

To find out the shape of your face, measure it with a tape measure and write them down :

– Measure your face across the top of your cheekbones.
– Measure across jawline from the widest point to the widest point.
– Measure across forehead to the widest point. Generally the widest point will be about halfway between your eyebrows and hairline.
– Measure from the tip of your hairline to the bottom of chin.

OVAL – many choices

Slightly narrower at the jawline than at the temples, with a gently rounded hairline.
Try: Most any hair shape works well. Short, medium and long lengths, plus styles swept away from face.

ROUND – add height without adding extra width

Full-looking face with round chin and hairline.
Try: Chin-length or longer styles, cuts with fullness and height at the crown, layered top, off-center parts.

SQUARE – avoid styles that add width at the jawline

Angular jawline, same width as forehead
Try: Styles that lengthen the face and add fullness on top work best. Avoid styles that add width at the jawline.

RECTANGULAR – avoid styles that add height on top

Long and slender, about the same width at forehead and just below cheekbones.
Try: Short to medium lengths, fullness at the sides, soft wispy bangs.

HEART- add volume to chin

Wider at the temples and hairline, narrowing to a small chin.
Try: Chin-length or longer styles, side parts, swept forward layers around the upper face, wispy bangs.

PEAR – add volume above jawline

Narrow forehead, round chin
Try: Frame the face with bangs and full layers on the sides and on top, with hair falling below the chin.

There are thousands of wigs out there for all types of women. Popular name brand wigs include Paula Young, Star Jones, Christine Jordan, Beauty in Motion, Especially Yours, NewHair, Naomi Sims, Gabor, and Diahann Carroll.


Tips to Pick Proper Sports Bra

Many women do not know how to choose the proper bra size, and as a result are wearing ill-fitting bras. To prevent this from happening, measure around your chest, under the arms, and just above the breasts. If your chest measurement is an odd number, round it up to the next even number. To fit the cup size, measure around the fullest part of your bus, and if it is in between numbers, round it up or down to the nearest whole number. The cup size is based on the difference between the chest measurement and the bust measurement with a 1″ difference being an “A” cup and a 5″ difference being a “DD” cup.

Since sports bras support the breasts and minimize the motion of them during exercise, it’s important to find a bra that provides enough support for your level of activity. Most sports bras are rated by level of activity, and should be purchased based on that. The higher the impact of the activity, the more support that you need while you are performing that activity.

There are a variety of styles from which to choose, but it’s more important to look for the proper fit and support first, and then look for the style you want within that area. You must concern yourself with fit and capability before you worry about the style. Look at it as you would if you were a waitress buying a pair of comfortable shoes because it is similar in that a waitress wearing ill-fitting shoes stands to cause damage to her back and legs, and an athlete or someone who exercises frequently can cause the delicate ligaments in the breast to stretch with an ill-fitting sports bra.


Inexpensive Ways to Dress Well

First of all, know your own figure and your own style. Don’t follow trends that don’t suit you. Most clothes look great on models like Kate Moss, but don’t look as good on us normal women! Remember how many items you bought on impulse last season? And you did not even wear them!

– Look at your closet and make a list of things you already have and you really want to keep. Then make a list of the things that you really want and do you have. Buying from a list will keep you focused and minimise costly impulse buying.

– Buy the best quality of clothes and accessories that you can afford. They’ll simply look better, last longer, wear less, wash better and as a result, you will save more money than buying lots of inferior-quality pieces that will only last a few wears.

– For big items like suits, dresses, coats: buy classic styles. These will stand the test of time and not date as much as clothes bought from the latest trends. Whereas for small items like bags and accessories, buy the most trendy, fashionable ones so you look up to date and go for the brightest colours (they will not make you look fat!).

– Buy on sale whenever possible. You can grab the same piece for half or even less money just a few months after the celebs. Nobody will tell you that ‘it’s out of fashion’, just for a few months. You can grab yourself some really good bargains on the last few days’ of the sales in famous shops like Harrods and Harvey Nichols. And buy online, on Ebay if you are Internet Savvy.

– Swap small items like hats and bags with your best friends (of course, those with good taste only). There is no point in spending a lot of money on something you are only going to use once (Well, it will be embarrassing if you wear the same clothes to your important parties). So share them with your friends.

Ladies, dressing well doesn’t have to cost a fortune. If you take a little time and a bit of thought to plan for your need, and treat buying your clothes like an investment.


A Fake And Real Handbag

– The most obvious differences between fake and real handbags is the misspelled logos you find on the fake handbags. Fakes don’t take the time to carefully make the handbags. If you look carefully you can spot some of the misspellings. Sometimes however, these misspellings can be intentional. They want to imitate a particular handbag brand but intentionally misspell the name so as not to enter into any legal trouble with the real company.

– Watch out for handbags with cheap leather. This is one sure sign of a fake. I know it is very difficult at certain times to identify if the leather is cheap or not, but if you take your time to look carefully, you will notice it. That is why you should never be in a hurry when shopping for the handbag of your choice. Take your time and look carefully before parting with your hard-earned money.

– To get real handbags and not fakes, always shop for your handbags from authorized and registered dealers- whether online or offline. Some of the places to find fake handbags are at home parties, flea markets, New York’s Chinatown, mall kiosks, to mention a few.

– Price is one of the most important determinants for identifying a fake handbag from a real one. The price of a fake handbag is usually cheap- to push you to buy. Don’t expect to buy a $500 handbag for $100. It just is too good to be true and is certainly a fake.

Dress Pattern for Wedding Day

Most girls and women love to wear dresses. Wearing a dress makes a woman feel feminine in a way that she cannot feel wearing any other item of clothing. Women search for the right dress to wear to every party and event of their lives. There is, however, no dress more important to a woman than the dress she wears on her wedding day. These days many women are foregoing the hassle of shopping for the perfect gown and opting for having someone make a dress specifically for them. Making your own wedding dress or having it made for you can be a great way to get the gown you love. If you choose to go this route, the single most important thing you need to be concerned with is the dress pattern.

Every woman wants her wedding dress to fit her like a glove and to reflect the uniqueness of her personality and style. She wants to feel more beautiful on her wedding day than on any other day of her life. And she should. Brides to be should take their time and consider carefully the perfect dress pattern for their special day.

In determining the perfect dress pattern for you, consider a few basic things. What time of the year are you having your wedding and what will the weather be like at that time of the year? Your dress pattern will vary considerably based on these things. A long sleeved pattern may be appropriate for cold winter months but you will most likely prefer a short sleeved or sleeveless pattern for warmer weather. Finding a dress pattern that is season and weather appropriate is important.

Once you have narrowed down potential dress patterns based on weather you can begin to narrow your options even further by taking time to consider your personal style. Any dress pattern you choose should be a reflection of who you are. Women who never wear ruffles or lace will want to avoid a dress pattern that is filled with those things. The last thing you want on your wedding day is to feel uncomfortable in the dress you have chosen, so take your time and find a great pattern. A third thing to consider when finding a perfect dress pattern is the style of your wedding ceremony and reception. If you are planning to have a very formal evening wedding you should choose a dress pattern accordingly. If, however, you are planning to marry in an informal morning wedding you can choose a less formal dress pattern.

Deciding to go with a handmade dress can be the perfect way to ensure you end up with the unique wedding gown of your dreams. Choosing the right dress pattern is the first step to making your dream dress come true.


Tips to Purchase Apparel

Before you head out and purchase any new apparel, it is important to consider carefully what kind of event or situation you need the new apparel for. If you are hoping to purchase an outfit that will be wearable only on special occasions and an outfit to wear everyday you should consider how much money you will spend on each outfit before you shop. It might be wise to spend the most money on the apparel you will wear the most. Also consider how one piece of apparel may be wearable in many situations. If you have a specific plan when you set out to shop for new apparel you will probably end up with clothing that fits your needs while not destroying your budget.

Slow down and take time to look through your closet and your dresser. What kinds of apparel do you already have? It is likely that you have a lot more apparel than you wear, so see if there aren’t some buried pieces that you can bring out and wear again. Are you looking for a formal outfit to wear to a party or a wedding? If so, look to see what kind of accent pieces you might already have that will save you money. If you can find some jewlery and a pair of shoes to wear in your closet then you will not have to spend as much when you do head off to the store.

After your have carefully considered the apparel you are hoping to puchase and you have reviewed the apparel you already own it is time to head out and shop for what you need. Begin this process with caution, however, and be sure to take time to compare apparel from different stores before you make an impulsive purchase you will regret later. Perhaps you can look at a discount store and find an item very similar if not identical to a name brand item you hope to purchase. Be sure to look on sales racks for great deals. You might be surprised at how many pieces of great apparel can be purchased at low prices.

Finding the perfect apparel for any occasion, whether it is a formal party or a lazy Saturday, can be easy and fun. The biggest thing is to take the process slowly. Consider with care what kind of apparel you need and then take time to check your closet and dresser for things you already have. And shop with care, looking for discounts and getting the best apparel for your valuable money. If you take this process seriously you will probably come out with outfits that you love to wear and can wear for a long time.

2. Two or three pairs of expensive-looking shoes for a work. Study what your boss is wearing then get yourself two great-looking pairs of similar shoes. Not only will you always look appropriate and stylish. you’ll always have a pair clean and ready should one need to go to the cobbler. Need style suggestions? Go with pumps. Not only are pumps flattering and easy to wear, they are the quintessential woman’s work shoes, especially for those working in offices, banks, or upscale shops. Opt for a dark or medium neutral. Think black, chocolate, cordovan (an old-fashioned word for cherry-kissed brown), or even burgundy, navy, or charcoal.

Plus, they work well with formal and near-formal wear, they add sophistication to jeans, and instantly dress up a denim skirt and cardigan like nothing else can.

4. One pair of strappy dress sandals to wear with formal or semi-formal attire. They can sex-up a pair of jeans, too. Best colors: a mid-tone or pale neutral, including metallics such as silver or gold.

7. One pair of fashion boots in a medium or dark neutral. Something classic enough for work-wear yet sexy enough to add an edge to jeans and an everyday tee.

If you follow the above tips you will create a woman’s fashion footwear wardrobe, that no matter what the occasion is, you will have the perfect shoe.

How to Pick the Perfect Handbags?

Choose a handbag that goes with your dressing. Don’t get handbags that look very odd with your dressing. Your handbag should help to complement your dressing and bring it out, and not to make it look odd.

Note that when you use your handbag, it is not only you who is aware. There are other people, especially ladies, around who will take notice of you. So, if your handbag looks odd, they will notice this and it could give a very negative impression about you. Try to prevent this, before it happens.

Choose a handbag that fits your figure. Don’t go for handbags that don’t fit your figure because they will make you look weird. Imagine a slim lady carrying very big handbags, or a big lady carrying very tiny handbag. This will not look fine at all. It is important that you know this and choose the right handbag that will fit your figure.

Before buying any handbag at a store, make sure you try it out with the dressing you want to use it with. This will give you an idea of how it will look with your figure and your dressing, before you go ahead to buy it.

But if you go out and buy the handbag to take home before testing it out, you might be disappointed when you discover it doesn’t look fine with your figure or the particular dressing you have chosen it for
