FABULOUS AT EVERY AGE! How to Dress Age Appropriately...

joi, 11 iunie 2015

Even the most fashionable women obsess about fashion; they've just 
figured out the rules that work for them during every decade. "If 
you look at people of great style, like Grace Kelly, you see they 
developed a trademark," observes design guru India Hicks. Here, 
some of the most well-dressed women around share their secrets
 for growing into your own style.

IN YOUR 20S

This is the time to experiment, as actress Camilla Belle did with a
winged Valentino for a bash in January. "I'm starting to feel brave
 enough to wear things that are outlandish and crazy," says the
 23-year-old. Meanwhile, Brit It girl Sophia Hesketh, 25, says
 she is taking advantage of her leggy youth to wear "super short
 dresses with no tights."
On the darker side, DJ Leigh Lezark, 25, favors black for her
many nights out.
 She plays with fabric and texture, from a sheer Dior top with
a skintight pencil
to a risqué Davidelfin peekaboo skirt with transparent panels.
 "I've been
 incorporating more lace and feminine silhouettes into my
wardrobe," she says.
The 20s are fun, but there is a lot to look forward to.
 "I'm too young
 to be dripping in jewels," says Belle, "but I can't
wait to wear
 diamonds and emeralds."

IN YOUR 30S

Roopal Patel, 36, a senior market editor at Neiman Marcus, has sworn
 off the voluminous frocks that were once her staples. "They don't feel
feminine. I got rid of all the Empire waists and baby-doll dresses in
my closet."
Young mom Eleanor Ylvisaker avoids trendy pieces. "I still gravitate
to edgier designers like Balenciaga, Givenchy, and Balmain, but I'm
 no longer obsessed with having the look of the moment," explains
 the 33-year-old fashion consultant, who by day relies on "my gray
 button-down shirt from Rag & Bone, a blue-and-white-striped
 Alexander Wang tee, Evisu jeans, and Etro scarves." This spring,
her picks include Proenza Schouler's racer-back tanks and
multicolored tube dress.
Patel also has a penchant for tribal patterns. "I have more confidence
 wearing bold prints," she says. "I love the idea of wearing a great
safari jacket to the office or a crisp white shirt with leopard-print
 wedges."

IN YOUR 40S

"What I love about being in my 40s is that I know what suits me,"
says Julie Janklow, the 42-year-old owner of Manhattan restaurant
 Sweetiepie, who swears by a uniform of Current/Elliott jeans and
 flat-heeled boots mixed with Balenciaga jackets, Isabel Marant
shirts, and vintage Lacoste sunglasses. "It's a matter of finding your
 comfort zone," explains Janklow, whose sweet spot this summer
will be Adidas by Stella McCartney separates and a new
multicolored Carlos Falchi bag.
When she hit 40, model mom Veronica Webb, 45, started to
 build a closet of luxe classics like trench coats and black
 cocktail dresses. "I depend on those like transportation."
Likewise, India Hicks, 42, relies on formfitting basics like Day Birger
 et Mikkelsen T-shirts and Stella McCartney ribbed tanks, punctuated
with statement accessories like Paul & Joe studded belts, lace-up
men's brogues, and a camo fedora by Patricia Underwood. "Ever
since wearing that really hideous bridesmaid dress at Princess Diana's
wedding in 1981, I have had an intense aversion to frills," she says.
 Most of all, she avoids "in-between lengths" in skirts and shoes.
 "I prefer a heel the height of the Eiffel Tower or a shoe as flat as a pancake."

IN YOUR 50S

Nina Griscom, 55, still has fun with her look, but she's learned what
 to avoid. "Sadly, I can no longer pull off that black suede miniskirt
 with the fringe that I'd kill to wear," she laughs. Instead, she takes
 risks with accessories like Anya Hindmarch's silver snakeskin hobo
 bag. For day, "a Lanvin T-shirt dress and Miu Miu flats work better
 than a cotton polo dress with sandals, which makes me look frumpy,"
 says Griscom, who's swapped stilettos for Christian Louboutin wedges.
Society doyenne (and grandmother of three) Coco Kopelman, 59,
opts for chic comfort. "I get more mileage out of Chanel jackets
paired with Ralph Lauren jeans, or a white Anne Fontaine shirt with
 skirts," she notes. Kopelman mixes high-end pieces with Banana
Republic shells, Vince cardigans, and J Brand black corduroys and
 avoids complex footwear. "I love rubber-soled Tod's, ballerina flats,
 and Jack Rogers in the summer."
Both ladies stick to neutral colors. "Over the years, my skin tone and
 hair color have changed," says Kopelman, "so bright fabrics may not
 be as flattering, which I discovered when trying on an old raspberry
 suit."

IN YOUR 60S+

Marisa Berenson, 63, takes a turn from the eclectic dressing of her
 youth with statement-making looks like her white Roberto Cavalli
 tuxedo. "There were a lot of things I could wear [in the past] that I
don't now," says the actress, who now cherishes the chance to wear
 a fancy frock from John Galliano or a vintage Versace evening jacket.
 "I think it's important to keep the glamour in life."
Her style staples include Fendi furs and bags and Manolo Blahnik
 flats. When she has to get basic (for example, on her frequent trips),
 she packs Ralph Lauren jeans and Donna Karan shirts in black,
white, and gold.
As author Jamee Gregory enters her 60s, she stays current with
pieces like trousers by Tory Burch, Madewell denim, Wolford
turtlenecks, Gap T-shirts, and Roger Vivier buckle flats. Gone are
the days of anything short and tight. Instead, she wears simple A-line
 shifts by Chanel and Michael Kors. She's also put aside her oversize
handbags in favor of more manageable purses like her mini red
snakeskin Dior or Hermès's new pink Constance.
And don't expect to find Gregory dusting off her '80s frocks to
run with the current revival trend. "I wore Lacroix and poufs,
but I wouldn't go there again," she says. "It was fun, but
 those exaggerated styles date fast."
One style secret all these women agree on is the importance of finding
a talented tailor. "Alter the jacket, the skirt, or the dress so it fits you
perfectly," advises Patel, "and you'll know you look great without
 looking in the mirror."
And as Kopelman says, when it comes to fashion, you can't go wrong
 if you follow these two words: know thyself.

4 tips for pretty feet


Clean feet are pretty feet:

The secret to pretty feet lies in keeping them clean. Soak the feet regularly in a tub of mild warm water and wash them with a soap or feet scrub. Clean the soles with a pumice stone to get rid of any dead skin. Try to wash your feet as frequently as possible during the day, especially after returning from outside. Pat your feet slightly dry after washing and let them air dry slowly. Do not put on any socks or shoes while the feet are damp, as it can cause a bad smell.

Moisturize:

The outside environment and regular washing can go hard on your feet. Moisturize your feet with a lotion after every wash to keep the skin soft and pretty. Put on a lot of lotion before going to bed at night. Massage the lotion well into your feet so that the blood circulation increases and the skin absorbs the moisture. You can then put on socks for the night.

Nails:

Nails are an important part of feet. Keep the nails trimmed and shaped. Clean the nails regularly with an old brush. Paint the nails with good quality nail colour to make them appear more attractive and groomed.

Footwear:

Sandals may appear to be the most appealing choice on literally all occasions. However, wearing shoes which cover your feet can do them a great favour. The shoes protect the feet from the dust, allergies and harmful objects like nails in the ground. Even the rough air can cause feet to go dry. Therefore, it is best to keep shoes on during times when you will be outside. Try to keep the shoes dry at all times to prevent any smell from developing. Change socks frequently, preferably daily, as dirty socks can cause smell and bacteria growth. This can harm the feet and also encourage bad odour.

So true...This is made for me!

How to Lose Weight in Your Cheeks



Plump cheeks make little kids look extremely adorable, but the effect is not the same on adults. People often have their health judged by their cheeks, as the latter is often referenced to gauge weight.
Losing weight from your cheeks is possible by making some adjustments to your daily diet, cardiovascular exercise, lifting weights and performing some simple cheek exercises.

Eat healthy

It is important to ensure that your daily diet comprises of food that has a high nutritional value. Such food does not only help you in growth, but also plays a key role in keeping you fit instead of depositing unnecessary fat deposits in different parts of your body, including your cheeks. Give preference to food such as fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy products, fish, nuts, beans and seeds.
Removed bad food from your diet

Foods that are deep-fried, refined, processed, or has a high amount of saturated fat may taste good, but they are the biggest enemy of people who are looking to shed some pounds off their body. Your physician may have advised you again them many times, but if you have been ignoring his word until now, it is time to become a bit more obedient. Avoid junk food, fast food, cookies, candy, doughnuts, fizzy drinks, alcohol and pastries as much as you possibly can.
Drink plenty of water

Drinking lots of water is extremely important because of the many benefits that it provides for your body. It not only serves to keep you hydrated, but also helps in burning calories, metabolising the by-products of fat and removing impurities from your body.
Do cardiovascular exercise

Activities such as brisk walk, jogging, climbing, riding a bike, etc. all serve to increase the metabolism of your body as they demand extra energy from your body. This increased demand for energy is met by burning calories and stored fats. Your heart rate also increases, which improves the metabolism even more.
Lift weights

Weight lifting is an extremely effective way to lose extra fat as it speeds up metabolism. Be sure to put pressure on different muscle groups instead of simply focusing one or two.
Exercise your cheeks by sucking them in

With your lips closed, open your jaw. Now suck your cheeks in and hold them that way for a minimum of 10 seconds before releasing them. Repeat this 10-15 times. It is recommended to do them in sets of 10.
Exercise your cheeks by using air

With your lips closed, fill the back of your upper lip with air breathed in through your nose. Hold it there for 10 seconds before forcing it to your left cheek. Afterwards, transfer the air to your right cheek. Release the air and then start all over again.
Exercise your cheeks by smiling

Smile with your lips closed and then pucker your lips. Keep going back and forth for a minimum of 10 repetitions.

Tips to prevent hair damage when using a flat iron


A lot of young women prefer to use flat irons to style their hair straight and smooth. However, what they don’t realize is that they are risking severe hair damage, especially if they are not careful with the flat iron.
Ideally, you should refrain from using flat irons altogether, and style your hair in a way to highlight your natural texture. But since we don’t live in an ideal world, today we are sharing some essential tips that will help you avoid any hair damage while you iron your hair.

1.Get an Adjustable Flat Iron


Most professional flat irons are built to sustain heavy use and work as efficiently as possible, which means they are hotter by default. You on the other hand, need an iron which has adjustable temperature settings, so you don’t end up burning your locks the first time you use it.

While you are at it, also look for irons with ceramic plates, and choose a size that goes with the length of your hair (wide iron for long hair, thin iron for short).

2.Not a Wet Hair on Your Head


Remember this general rule – never, ever use a flat iron on wet hair. If you have ever sprayed water on a hot utensil or a heater, you should know what happens. Water evaporates very quickly on contact with a hot surface (accompanied by sizzling sounds), and when the same happens to your hair, they are left extremely dry and damaged.

Even if your iron claims that it works with wet hair, avoid it altogether. Instead, wash your hair the night before you need to straighten them, to make sure they are thoroughly dry before you use the iron on them.

If you want to prepare them rather quickly, use a blow dryer (on medium heat) to dry your hair first and make sure there is not a single wet hair on your head before you proceed.


3.Use Protection


There are several sprays available that protect hair from heat damage. Similarly, oil based products can also be found to serve as heat protectors against the flat iron. You simply rub a little on your palm and massage your hair with it to ensure a protective coating before you use the iron.

4.Iron Your Hair Gently


Even during the ironing process you need to be gentle and patient to avoid any damage to your hair. You might already know that you need to start straightening your hair from the bottom up.

Start with a thin lower section, holding it up with a comb and then moving the iron over it slowly and gently all the way down. You can make a pass or two, but avoid going over the same section again and again.

5.Long-term Tips


-Don’t get a flat iron that doesn’t have ceramic plates.
-Don't straighten your hair every day.
-Make sure you moisturize your hair plenty to make up for the heat treatment.
-Don’t use a lot of gels or hair styling products in combination with a flat iron.
-Even setting your blow dryer to very hot can damage your hair.

The 13 shoe styles you need to try in 2015

luni, 2 martie 2015

T-STRAPS

Whether in a Mary-Jane or a sexy peep-toe, it's all about the t-strap for spring. This shape elongates the foot and highlights sleek ankles. Wear them with full, flowing skirts and cropped cigarette pants. High: Michael by Michael Kors Diana Heels, $148
Low: Call It Spring Gligoven wedges, $50.

RAIN BOOTS

This year's rain boots look more like chelsea boots than wellies, which means they'll blend into your wardrobe better than a pair of colourful knee-high rubber boots.
High: Burberry Glossed Rubber Rain Boots, $377
Low: Aldo Lupia Rubber Boots, $50

CAGED HEELS

Like a peek-a-boo bootie, these caged heels look great with skirts and cropped trousers. It's the perfect shoe for showing off subtle hints of your ankles and well-pedicured feet.
High: French Connection Quanna Heels, $175
Low: Aldo Lavinia Heels, $90.

MULES

From heeled sandals to Dr. Scholl's-style clogs, slip-on shoes are a big trend for spring. We like these chunky mules to wear with jeans or floaty summer dresses.
High: Tibi Leather Mules, $375
Low: Aldo Mariotta Mules, $100.

LEOPARD PRINT

Leopard has been around for a few seasons, but for 2015, it's basically become a neutral. Look for the print in chic, simple shapes and wear them with florals, stripes and other patterns.
High: Gianvito Rossi Leopard Print Calf Hair and Cork Sandals, $795
Low: Nine West Ximout sandals, $100

NEW UGLY SANDALS

Last year, it was all about the Birkenstocks and high fashion versions of the "ugly sandal." This year, that same comfortable sole is being updated with more stylish straps. Get a pair with a functional sole, but look for interesting buckles or rhinestones and wear them with everything.
High: Michael Kors Luna Crystal-Embellished Leather Sandals, $150
Low: Aldo Haima sandals, $70

BOWS

This sweet detail makes the sexiest pumps just a touch prettier and a little less vampy. You'll get all the height you want, but you can wear your new heels with your most modest ensembles.
High: Stuart Weitzman Bobosong heels, $450
Low: Vince Camuto Nikkah Heels, $174.42

CUT-OUT BOOTIES

WHITE SNEAKERS

Don't relegate your new sneakers to weekends with jeans. 2015's bright white runners are meant to be worn with skirts, dresses and shorts every day of the week.
High: Nike Air Force 1 Ultra Force Leather and Canvas Sneakers, $95
Low: H&M Trainers, $29.95

GLADIATORS

Not for lovers of long hemlines, these knee-high, laced and heeled sandals add a whole lot of interest to toned calves (the high heel helps any leg look longer and leaner). Wear them with soft, a-line dresses and skirts for a flirty contrast.
High: Vince Camuto Kase Heels, $245
Low: Call It Spring Breassi Sandals, $80

FLATFORMS

The Spice Girl shoe staple is sticking around for another season. Instead of going with goth-like creepers, try a pair of light-looking athletic lace-ups, and wear them with shorts and skirts all spring and summer.
High: Robert Clergerie Vicolei Raffia Lace Ups, $395
Low: H&M Platform Sneakers, $30

LUCITE

No longer just for pole dancers, lucite heels can actually look classy. Just make sure the shoe's upper doesn't feature any see-through fabric and you're in the clear.
High: Jeffrey Campbell Boone boots, $199
Low: H&M Court Shoes, $70

POINTED-TOE FLATS

Take your ballerina flats to new dressy levels with a pointed toe that looks like it means business. Split slipper styles mix a laid-back look with a serious toe shape, which makes them ideal for pairing with breezy summer dresses.

Low: K&M by Kate and Mel 2-Piece Flat, $30
