TIP OF THE DAY NO. 71 – YOUR FIGURE

TIP NO 71 –YOUR FIGURE

For many years now we have been brainwashed into thinking that skinny is beautiful just because we see and admire flat-chested, narrow-hipped models in fashion magazines. It is indeed nice to be slim, but skinny is not beautiful or attractive.

Gentlemen do NOT prefer scarecrows. A very thin woman may look well in clothes,but without them she doesn’t offer much to hold on to – is that maybe why some men prefer heavier women?

What is more important than being slim is to be well proportioned. If you wear a size 10 on the top and size 12 or 14 around the hips, exercise is the only thing that will correct this. Dieting alone will make you lose weight all over, where exercise will take off the bulk where you don’t need it.

And when getting older being thin is no advantage – because when the skin starts to sag and the bones begin to show a woman will certainly look older than she is. In moderation a few extra pounds will make you look younger and more feminine.

TIP OF THE DAY NO. 70 – THINGS TO REMEMBER

TIP NO. 70 – THINGS TO REMEMBER

1. If you wear make-up don’t try on clothes the day you don’t – without make-up the result will not be dependable.

2. When you are tired, it’s better not to wear black. Instead, put a lighter shade next to your face.

3. Prints or designs of any kind need simple, quiet accessories in solid tones.

4. Since long sleeves lead the eyes to your hands, pay attention to your manicure.

5. When wearing white – any garment in white – must be of good quality. A white garment in a cheap fabric will make you look that way.

TIP OF THE DAY NO. 66 – NOT TO BE WITHOUT!

TIP NO. 66 – NOT TO BE WITHOUT!

A WHITE BLOUSE – is an absolute must. It is one of the most adaptable garments you can own. It is suitable for any time of day and coordinates well with all colours and styles, and  is the natural partner of suits. It will always be the answer to any emergency or unexpected invitation, and makes any woman look younger.

To avoid being without a white blouse (because it is being washed or dry cleaned), it is a good idea to have two – or more. Since you will wear this is a garment more than others, it will not be a wasteful duplication.

TIP OF THE DAY NO. 60 – THE SPRING OF BLACK AND WHITE

TIP NO. 60 – THE SPRING OF BLACK AND WHITE

Looking at these pictures will convince you that there is no getting away from black andnd white this spring. Even if you don’t wear a way out style, you can a find a way to follow this trend – and maybe just pulling out the black and white items you have in your wardrobe and putting them together will do the trick.

TIP OF THE DAY NO. 59 – TRYING ON CLOTHES

TIP NO. 59 – TRYING ON CLOTHES

When it is cold and you are all bundled up with sweaters, coats, and scarves, etc., or in the summer when you feel hot and sweaty, you probably don’t feel like getting undressed to try on a new blouse – or anything else.

So you  might buy it without trying it on, hoping it will fit (and suit you) or, what I have seen many women do, they try it on over what they are wearing – HELP – there is no garment – except a jacket or coat – that will look well when pulled over one you are wearing. “It will give me an idea if I like it”‘ a lady told me recently, while she was pulling one turtleneck over another – how can you like it when the shoulder seams are not in the right place and the sleeves are pulling in all directions?  

If you don’t want to get undressed – don’t buy it or take the risk that you have to exchange it – but putting on a blouse over another one won’t give it a fair chance.

TIP OF THE DAY NO. 58 – DON’T BE AN IMPULSE BUYER!

TIP NO. 58 – DON’T BE AN IMPULSE BUYER!

You probably don’t think that you are, but if you want to find out go through  your closet and see how many items still have the Hang Tag and Price ticket on them.

These are items you bought on impulse or they wouldn’t have the price ticket still on, and were never worn. You must have liked them at the time – thinking they would be great to wear on a hot day, or to go out, or for the weekend – or was it maybe a SALE  sign that made you buy them?  

Believe me I am not making it up – I have met many women who say, “Oh, you should see  how many things in my closet still have the price ticket on.”  It is a pity that your budget was spent for something that you are not wearing.

So if you find out that you are an impulse buyer, think twice before you go to the cash register!

See you tomorrow
