If you see something you like, check eBay to see if you can find it gently used for a better price. Gently used clothing, or clothing that has been worn before, is even better for the environment as there is no manufacturing for a product that already exists, less Carbon Dioxide emissions, smaller carbon footprint and less clothing heading to the landfill.
If you happen to have organic clothing but you’re looking for a new style consider donating clothing to a local non-profit or charity, have a clothing swap with friends where you all bring clothes to trade with one another or post it on-line for sale. Your waste could be someone else’s treasure.
Many times it’s easier to look up a company’s reputation on-line. You can not only check out their reputation on-line but you can take a look at how and where their products are manufactured, if they … Read the rest
There are some people who wear wigs because they want to know whether or not a new hair color would look good on them or not. Others just simply want to look different and get a total makeover.

A Layerable Shift
Keeping it simple is key when you travel. A shift dress is just that easy piece! Layer over a slim long-sleeve tee and boots for a casual look, slip under a blazer for work with pumps, or leave it bare with just sandals and a luscious statement necklace for a night out on the town.
Long-sleeve Knit Dress
If you have to step off sexy for an immediate date or happy hour, nothing works better than a simple long-sleeve knit dress. In a solid or print, it’s comfortable on the plane and versatile for a variety of activities. Belt a long cardigan over it with ankle boots and tights for a cozy look, a simple jacket for work (make sure it covers your derriere!), and simply with a statement necklace, statement earrings or a fur vest and heels for dinner.

It’s been said that clothes make the man. That’s not entirely true. Clothes can be an extension of the man, or person. They can also be a mask for the man, but they don’t really make the person. So the first rule in dressing to impress is to “know thyself.” You can dress up a pig, but it will always long for the mud, thus, acting in a manner that speaks of mud conscience behavior. In layman’s term, no matter what outward wardrobe you put on, you can only be what you are. You must have an inner confidence in order to truly showcase an outer facade of clothing, hairdos and makeup. Once you come clean about who you really are, only then can you truly rock your wardrobe.
The fashion world prides itself on styles that are risque. They make their mark by attempting to shock and awe the … Read the rest
Bespoke is similar to haute couture, a style of women’s clothing that’s also tailored specifically to the buyer’s demands. Widely used in the United Kingdom, the word is hardly ever used in fashion circles in the Unites States unless it is a high-end tailoring business.
Tailor made suits are traditionally made from patterns designed from scratch for the particular buyer. In this way it differs from “off-the-rack” clothing, which is made in a complete condition and standard sizes such as small, medium and large. Bespoke suits are also different from made-to-measure suits as the latter are constructed from an adjusted block pattern. None of this is to say that bespoke clothing isn’t particularly well-built, but since the inception of ready-to-wear clothing, bespoke garments are much more costly and involve a higher degree of assembly. The distinction to keep in mind when it comes to bespoke and made-to-measure is that bespoke … Read the rest
Opt for shoes that have Velcro straps or laces instead of slip ons. These shoes fasten the shoe to the foot in a similar way to how seat belts in cars do. Also try to avoid ballet style pumps currently in fashion as they lack vital support in the inner body of the shoe and provide virtually no shock absorption.
Try to get your child’s feet measured professional in both length and width on both feet. Incorrectly fitting shoes can cause damage to a growing foot.
A good idea is to allow the space of a fingers width in front of any shoe you will buy to allow growth and elongation of the foot while walking.
When buying trainers be aware that many are designed for specific sports and may not be suitable for everyday wear. Always try to get them measured professionally before you buy and also try to … Read the rest
A Subtle Change
If you have light colored eyes, enhancing contacts can be used to give your eyes more definition and deep without radically changing their colour. This kind of contacts are perfect if you want people to compliment you on your look, but without noticing how did you manage.

Changing Your Look Radically
Colored contacts are also great if you want to radically change your look. Even if it looks like a small thing, changing your eye color can totally change your aspect.

Colored contacts are an affordable way of matching … Read the rest

Despite this situation, I do realise that some people prefer to look at footwear in more practical terms. You may be one of these people.
