TIP OF THE DAY NO. 35 – SHOPPING WHILE TRAVELLING

TIP NO. 35 – SHOPPING WHILE TRAVELLING

I have just come back from my trip to Switzerland, and of course shopping is part of what we do when we leave home.  But it is not the same as shopping at home. First I noticed that my attitude to money is quite different – different in the way I look at prices. After a few days when I have gotten used to the currency, and don’t calculate anymore how much something is in dollars, I pay 100 Swiss Francs for a pair of shoes without thinking that it is expensive – where here at home I would think twice about paying that much.

Well, it is part of our holiday mood – we think that we deserve these treats when we are on vacation, and we do! But be careful not to get carried away by your surroundings, by spending the extra money for something you can not use once you are back home.

Don’t fall in love with an adorable summer dress only appropriate for the beach – but not useful when you are back in New York. Or have you ever come home with a huge straw hat? Now only a reminder of that wonderful stay in the Bahamas! By all means go shopping, have fun, but buy something that will  remind you of your vacation while wearing it back home.

Oh, yes the shoes I bought are  something I will wear all summer – they are beige snake-skin, with a medium size heel, and very comfortable. But I had a moment of hesitation. There was also a pair of sexy, red ones with  very high heels, and my holiday mood was more for sexy and daring —- but then I took my own advice and bought what will be useful this spring and summer.

See you tomorrow

TIP OF THE DAY – NO.16 LOOKING GOOD AND DRESSING WELL

Tip No. 16 – Don’t Buy The Latest Fashion Fads.

If you are on a budget, like most of us, your clothes have to last several seasons. The best investment, therefore, are conservative styles, simple styles. They will not look oudated next year or even the year after.

Simple, conservative styles are more versatile. You can change them into a different look with accessories. You will not get tired of a plain dress as quickly as you will of get tired of the print on this dress.

It is a beautiful dress, but you can only afford if your budget is unlimited.

If you want to follow the new fashion trends, do it with accessories – a belt, a  hat, shoes, or jewelry in the latest style.

See you tomorrow

NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION ——–?

Hello Everyone

No, I have not been in touch for a while, so let me tell you first about my New Year’s Resolution – I promise to be in touch more often and I hope you will be too!

The New Year’s Resolution I would like you to make is:

NOT to buy a top or skirt, or whatever else might be on sale,because it is CHEAP. The best value you can get is to buy something you need, something of good quality, something you love and will wear for a long time – and please make sure that it has a mate – don’t buy just a top or bottom – buy an outfit and you won’t ever have to worry about what goes with what!

         HAPPY NEW YEAR AND HAPPY SHOPPING IN 2013

Until next time

THE LAST 6 TIPS OF HOW TO INTERPRETE A FASHION MAGAZINE

Hello Everyone

           Let us finish today what we started last week, here are the other 6 tips of how you can adapt what you see in fashion magazines to yourself and your wardrobe.

7. COMPARE THE EDITORIAL PAGES WITH THE ADS.

Some of you might not be familiar with the difference. So let me explain first. The editorial pages are the part – mostly towards the back of the magazine – showing clothes which have been selected by the fashion editor of that publication and are photographed for the magazine. The purpose is to show the latest trends, colours, and silhouettes.

The ads, mainly in the front part of the magazine, are paid for by manufacturers and designers who make the clothes, or the stores who sell them. These are usually less spectacular than what is shown in the editorial  pages, but more wearable and often more affordable. So my advice her is to study the editorial pages for what is new and then compare them to the ads which show the same trend in a more moderate, less intimidating version.

8. PAY ATTENTION TO THE FABRIC GARMENTS ARE MADE OF.

When we think of a new look, we first think of styles and colours. But we seldom pay enough attention to the fabric, though it is always mentioned. Don’t just read over the description, let it register. Knowing that gold lame is back or that rain coats are made from a silk poplin, or that a wool and polyester mix holds pleats better, will make you surer of what you are looking for when you go shopping. And it will also help you to buy better quality clothes, and you won’t end up with a fabric that does not wear well.

9. TAKE NOTE OF NEW HAIRSTYLES.

The hairstyles you see on the models are, like the clothes, exaggerated versions of new trends. But to convey a message it is often necessary to start with an extreme. So if you see faces framed by halos of curls, it is telling you that curls are the look. You are not expected, however, to wear a style like this in your daily life, translating this to you, it means your hair should be worn curly in some way or other – short curls,  shoulder length curls,  or just the ends curled – really anyway that suits you best. So if you wish to look up-to-date don’t regard the new hairstyles as something that once again does not apply to you. IT DOES!

10. STUDY THE MAKE-UP.

Tempted by pictures of models with beautifully made-up faces, we buy lipstick, foundation, eyeshadow –  just anything that we believe brings us closer to the faces we see  in ads and on display posters. But having all this cosmetic, few of us ever achieve to use it properly. But it is not as difficult as you might think.

Choose a picture of a model who has the same colourings as you. This is important. Study the picture for a while. Yes, you can see where the eyeshadow starts and stops – just look again. After you have studied the picture well, put it next to your make-up mirror and once you have applied your foundation, start to copy what you see. Since your colourings are close to those of the model, choose similar or the same colors for eyeshadow, blush and lipstick. When you start,  don’t get discouraged.  It won’t be perfect the first time around, but with patience and practice it soon will.

11. SEE WHAT ACCESSORIES ARE WORN AND HOW.

A complaint I often hear is: “ I love accessories,but I never know what to do with them.”  This frustration is further increased by hearing and reading about women who can change their look with just a little scarf or belt. If you use scarves, it should never be an inexpensive one – buy the most expensive one you can afford, because a good quality scarf can  make an inexpensive dress look good.

If you don’t know how to wear your scarves look at the way the model wears it and do the same. But then there are not only scarves. There are necessary accessories –  like shoes, bags, and hose – and optional ones like belts, jewelry, and hats. Among the optional ones there is always one that is more in fashion than others. Look how jewelry has made a come back! So again look at how it is worn. Maybe you can’t wear a big collar-like necklace, but you can wear 4 or more bracelets, just like the girl in the magazine.

Accessories can make a big difference. Therefore, to avoid being without, follow what you see in your favorite Fashion Magazine.

12. FOLLOW THE ADVICE – DO IT.

Once you have analyzed a fashion magazine as I have suggested, the most important point is still to come. YOU MUST DO IT. Knowing about how to change your hair, how to wear a hat and what is the latest colour for lips, is not enough. You must put into action what you have seen. Don’t say:”Yes, I have read about the new hair thickener in Bazaar, but I didn’t try it yet.”

I can assure you that applying to yourself what you see and read in fashion magazines –  if for beauty, health, clothes, or make-up – will give you a different image and lots of self-confidence

          Until the next time

STAY  WELL  AND  LOOK  YOUR BEST
