JEANS the most versatile item in anyone's wardrobe.Worn with killer
heels for a sexy look,cropped up with some flats for a simple out door
look, you just can never go wrong with Jeans!.......Never?.....No yes
you can go wrong with jeans.
Follow trends and ignore your body shape and you pretty much have the
perfect ingredients to go wrong.
Now i'm not saying don't follow trends but do so wisely which is why
you need to know what looks best on your body. We are all not born the
same and don't have the same body shapes,but we certainly can cater
for what we've got,Anyone can look stunning in jeans you just have to
know which jeans to die for and which jeans to dodge to have the best

To have just that and more....(psss.. that would be an overflowing
cup of compliments ;-)),observe these simple points whenever you go
buy yourself a pair of jeans.

- Petite women, dark coloured boot cut jeans look amazing on you,
slim fits are perfect!
-Bootcut/wide flare jeans are perfect for women with hips,they balance
out large hips.
-Straight leg jeans are quite versatile,they suit almost every body
shape.When worn with heels they can give the 'long leg' look.
- Skinny Jeans are also quiet versatile .
-Boy shaped women should wear jeans with pocket details,they create an
illusion of curves.Wide flare jeans will look great only if they are
fitted around the knees to avoid a baggy look.
-Women with big bottoms if they are looking to minimize ,should go for
large pockets behind with less detail.
Apart from all this SIZE matters to avoid 'spilling' out of your jeans
and wearing way too baggy jeans which is sooooo unattractive.

Happy shopping :-)

BEWARE OF THE MANNEQUIN : know your body!

The mannequin, also known as 'manny' ,is truely one of our best
friends.'Manny' is such a darling he/she helps you shop from a
distance when you don't have time to do some serious window
shopping.On that note I here by certify 'manny' as one of our best
friends for this duty (and braving the fashion designer's needles in
the studio,just for you....sigh)

But in a lapse of concetration and excitement of seeing something you
like on 'manny',automatically he/she becomes a potential enemy.Check
yourself,check 'manny', check yourself again, check 'manny'
again......if you share the same body image with 'manny' bless you ,if
you don't ,take a step back,no take two instead,LIKING SOMETHING DOES

Like all you want,love it if you may,daydream about knocking them dead
at a party,but what ever you do,do not be misled with 'manny' or more
importantly YOUR SENSES ,dress for your body type!

A lot of people make that mistake they don't dress,for their bodies
but according to if they like it on 'manny' or someone else.
From today make it a point to take a closer look at yourself know the
dimensions of your body,know which body class or type you fall under,
know what looks good on YOUR BODY!'Manny' does a great job letting you
know whats out there you maintain that relation by saying thank you
I'll look for that dress, jeans... in not only my size, colour, but
body type aswell.

Happy shopping :-)

No its not just a neckline and No its not just a design.It is also
specifically made to compliment and amplify your features (for all the
right reasons of course).The power of the neckline is quite under
estimated,when we wear the wrong necklines for our bodies,we can look
unbalanced, put the wrong features under a spot light and do
absolutley nothing for ourselves.I know at times we can not help it
but put on clothes with necklines that don't do much for us,but when
we CAN help it please do take the following into consideration.

. V-necks or plunging necklines soften broad shoulders and will draw
attention away from the shoulders.
V-necks can also make a short neck appear longer and also suitable for
busty women.
The v-neck is also the most versatile of necklines,it suits most women.

.Turtle neck and boat neck suit women with long necks and long
faces,they also happen to hide a double chin.
On that note happy shopping :-)

Tricks for Perfect DIY Nail Art

by The Nailasaurus

This manicure was a bit-by-bit creation. By that, I mean I picked my base color and painted it on, then I picked up my Scotch tape and just kept adding! This is the fastest Scotch tape mani I've ever made thanks to Cult Nails Wicked Fast topcoat, which really does dry wickedly fast. See a close-up of my cool mani here

I've switched topcoats recently after a couple bottles of my favorite one turned out to be really runny and not very hard-drying. I was waking up every morning with sheet and hair marks all over my nails! I'm really hoping it's just a bad batch and they haven't changed the formula.

I used Rimmel quick-dry nail polish in Grey Matter as a base and Cult Nails in Vicious and My Kind of Kool Aid for the patches, which I marked off with Scotch tape to paint. I added a coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast topcoat between each new layer (to prevent the Scotch tape from puling it all up!) and two coats on the top. The final look is pretty cool, huh?
