Rockin the little black dress!!

A BLACK dress might not be the first thing on your mind when planning a party outfit, but if you think about it, it is the only option when you’re out of ideas and have to come up with something fast, unique, simple and creatively glam.



How to select the perfect little black dress
Keep it at knee-length or shorter
Select the right finish
Choose the right black cocktail dress style for your body shape

How to wear a black cocktail dress
Cocktail wear: Glam it up with sexy sky high black pumps, evening clutch purse and dangling pearl earrings/or large sparkly cubic chandelier earrings.

Tailored: Go semi-casual with cute ballerina flats or heeled oxford shoes and throw on a blazer. And maybe add a trendy leather bag and stacked bracelets.

With trendy tights and shoes: Consider embellishing your legs with sexy hosiery such as lace tights for parties, high-gloss pantyhose for special occasion, etc. Sheer black pantyhose looks incredible with the black dress and creates a slimming effect.You may throw on a pair of eye-catching trendy ankle booties.

Leggings and boots: Appear casual by combining the little black dress with black ankle leggings, flowy wrap cardigan and brown knee high leather boots.

Turtleneck and tights: Wear it on top of a turtleneck sweater for a stylish layered Fall/Winter look. You can also update the look with a wide belt or a double strap skinny belt around the waist.

Punk chic: Generate a trendy-casual look with a bright coloured scarf, denim leggings and studded gladiator sandals.

The more things change....

And in 1800's news:
"Sanders' General Goods has pulled support of the play 'All-American Irish', a play about an Irish family living in America, claiming that it's support had been a 'lightning rod' of town controversy. The Association for Real America praised the decision, claiming that the play is 'propaganda that riskily hides the Irish-Catholic agenda's clear and present danger to American liberties and traditional values.'"

The perfect plus size dress according to your figure

The perfect plus size dress according to your figure

December 10, 2011 

Historically considered the most feminine garment, dresses, to this day become a ”must” of the female wardrobe. But not just for special occasions, instead the variety of designs and fabric make it ideal to carry at all times.
The look of a dress impeccably depends not only on good quality and design. The shape of our body plays a key role, which is why we must take into account the effect we want to get to choose what types will be better for us. Take note of the following tips:
  • If you want to look taller, choose flight clothes, much like the 70′s.
  • To cover prominent hips, flaring is the best ally. Cutting shirtwaist style also helps.
  • Wide necklines with short sleeves or bare shoulders with large stylized figure necks.
  • Boat neck or padded necklines are a great style because it helps achieve a more upright look to visually widen the shoulders. Japanese sleeves or dresses with flaps also help to get volume at the top.
  • If you have a smaller chest, nothing's better than a boat neckline dress. Bring your arms you also found favor.
  • Decorte Empire dresses may Hide the belly (one of our biggest concerns) or high waist, very flattering.
  • To create the visual sensation of having curves, choose dresses that can bind with wide or thin belts.
  • If your figure is straight with no hips, another of the “tricks” to suggest curves is tube wear dresses draped at the waist for shaping.
  • To hide a few extra pounds, try broad forms with gathers or  overlap effects.
