Effortless Style- Useful Fashion Tips

Published

Filling up your closet with fashionable items guarantees that you will always have something stylish to wear for every occasion. Every woman wants to be able to dress fashionably and appropriately. In order for you to have a unique sense of style that reflects your personality, you need to pick clothes that are suitable for you and your lifestyle.

Pick the Right Clothes

Begin by ensuring that all the clothes that you wear have a flattering effect on your shape. Consider your body type whenever you shop for clothes. This involves identifying clothes that fit well to create an elegant silhouette that showcases your best features. Wearing the right fit will help to balance your entire outfit.

A classic look can be achieved when you incorporate trends with timeless elegance. Combine classic styles with the latest fashion trends to create different looks. Follow fashion trends and monitor the ongoing styles and cuts that work well for your body type and lifestyle.

Colors

If you prefer a subtle appearance, opt for neutral colors that will enable you to match and mix your outfits with ease. You can easily add a pop of color by using bright accessories to brighten up your appearance. Combine neutral colors such as black and gray with bolder colors such as red and green to diversify your look. Choose colors that complement your complexion, skin tone and hair color.

Prints and Patterns

When you want to choose prints and patterns, avoid busy or cluttered designs that tend to be overwhelming. Look for patterns and textures that will be stylish for years to come and combine them with solid colors for an interesting contrast. For all your tanning needs, the spray tanning company is Scottsdale.

Invest in Quality

Clothes that appear to be more expensive are associated with style and fashion. The good news is that you can have high quality clothes without spending a fortune. This requires you to handle your clothes shopping in a strategic manner.

Invest in quality items that may cost you a little more but will last longer and are worthwhile investments. Certain items are considered to be luxurious and you can make an effort to save up for them. Classy pieces will enhance your outfits and overall wardrobe. It is always better to have a few quality items than to have a wide array of clothing that will not last for more than a season.

Coordinate your Wardrobe

Gradually create collection of clothes that you can mix and match. A wardrobe that contains the essentials makes it easier for you to combine different pieces. This will ensure that you are always dressed comfortably and stylishly. Avoid creating a closet that is full of pieces that feature restrictive colors and styles. Identify your clothing style and favorite colors. This can form the basis of your clothing collection.

Proper Maintenance

In order for you to always look fashionably stylish, all your clothes need to be properly maintained. None of your items should be creased, stained or worn out. Maintain your clothes by keeping them clean and storing them properly.

Looking Your Best With Morphe

Published

on

For awhile now I have been looking for a make-up brand I could count on. The bases I tried were thick, heavy, never the right color and didn’t make my skin glow. Then I was introduced to Morphe. First I tried their Lightform Extended Hydration Foundation ($20), weightless, long lasting and corrects imperfections instantly with undetectable coverage. My skin also stayed hydrated and radiant.
I also use the Jumbo Bake & Set Soft Focus Setting Powder ($19). This sets my makeup with a soft, natural finish, that lasts.

Their makeup brushes apply everything with a smooth texture and the base. I love the Lightform Dual Ended Complexion Brush ($15) which just makes my life a lot easier. Also the Three-In-One Brow Sculpting Brush ($9)

Another great item is the Continuous Prep & Set Mist+ ($19) and Continuous Setting Mist ($17). What these products do is prime and keep your make-up lasting all day. Infused with vitamin E, vitamin B5, and fruit extracts—sets liquid and powder makeup, enhancing its look and performance all day.

If you are looking for great make-up that doesn’t cost a fortune Morphe is the one to try.

Ask for the fabulous manager Kea Chan, who is a performer in her on rights. She served me a Pina Colada that was really unique and rimmed with toasted coconut.

At Chelsea Table & Stage guests were treated to a concert by Randy Edelman, who gave an amazing performance.

You can hear him play here.

Randy’s magical melodies can be heard in films that transport such as Twins, Ghostbusters II, Kindergarten Cop, Drop Dead Fred, Beethoven, The Distinguished Gentleman, Gettysburg, Angels in the Outfield, The Mask, Dragonheart, and more.

Guests dined on the fare by Chef Kimberley Vega , which was really well done. My Table had the sliders which were plump juicy and plentiful.

We also had the baby spinach and artichoke pinsa with mozzarella.

Both were delightful and easily shared.

Portrait of Iris by tatydesignstudio.com

Iris Apfel was born August 29, 1921 in Astoria, Queens. I had the pleasure of meeting Iris, through Errol Rappaport. His mother Francesca had been one of the first people to bring Iris to recognition and had at one time had a lot of her work in her houses. The two of them had been friends for over 70 years.

Iris at 90, she began teaching at the University of Texas at Austin. At 94, she was the subject of a documentary by Albert Maysles, simply titled “Iris”. At 97, she became a model and modeled for Vogue Italia, Kate Spade, M.A.C. and many others.  Iris was also the oldest person to have had a Barbie doll made by Mattel in her image. In addition to modeling, she also designed her own clothing and accessories line for HSN and published a book in 2018. It was then she became a fashion icon and self-proclaimed “geriatric starlet”, at the age of 102. Sadly she passed away on Friday in her Palm Beach, Florida, home.

Apfel was known for chunky bracelets, layers of necklaces, and those iconic heavy-framed glasses – she nicknamed eyebobs. She came to worldwide attention in 2005 when the Metropolitan Museum of Art showed an exhibition focusing on her fashion sense titled Rara Avis (Rare Bird).
