The Decoration

18 Sep

A simple white top and black pants can look boring (or like you’re a waiter) – or it can look chic – as in the case with this woman.

Imagine if she was just wearing the top, the pants and a pair of dull, sensible or frumpy black shoes.  It would be a completely different look.  It could even be aging. (She’s 60)

The decoration (in this case, the glasses, the jewellery, the makeup and the shoes) is what makes an outfit stylish, unique and interesting.

Remember – It’s not what you wear, it’s how you wear it.

Labels On Sleeves – Remove or Not?

17 Sep

Don’t spoil the look of your lovely new coat or jacket (or scarf) by leaving the label on the outside of the sleeve.

They should be very carefully and gently removed.  (You might want to invest in one of these to do the job)

All the label really says is the type of material the garment is made of and in some instances it mentions the brand of the coat.

If the jacket is beautiful and was expensive, there’s no need to expose the label.  The garment and the quality of the fabric will speak for itself.

If for some reason you wish to keep the tag for any particular reason (it may include care instructions) you can reattach it to an inconspicuous area of the coat.

How To Be Confident

16 Sep

Treasure your health every day

“Your body is your instrument, and you have to take beautiful care of it. I do one hour of yoga and walk for 30 minutes every day. You really enjoy life a lot more if you’re healthy. And I never leave home without putting on lipstick—it makes me feel pretty!” – Esther Tuttle, 99

Defy expectations

“People have their own ideas about what a dancer should look like, and many times when I perform, the audience is stunned that I can move the way I do. I’m truly fortunate to be part of a dance company that accepts me for me. My hips let me do things on stage that skinnier girls can’t!” – Francine Ott, 29

Own the room

“Confidence has nothing to do with what you look like. If you obsess over that, you’ll end up being disappointed in yourself all the time. Instead, high self-esteem comes from how you feel in any moment. So walk into a room acting like you’re in charge, and spend your energy on making the people around you happy. Giving confidence to others will come back to you and you’ll end up feeling better about yourself.”  -Marian Seldes, 82

The Back View

11 Sep

Just because something looks good front on in the mirror, doesn’t mean it will from the back.

When trying anything on always whiz around and check out the view from behind.

Apart from the size and the underwear being an issue, the pockets on these jeans (above)  are all wrong.

From the front, these jeans may well look great.

If you’re wearing jeans that look even slightly like these from the back, no matter what your size, age or budget is, there are MUCH better options.
