Crazy T-Shirts

I often think of the person who thought about putting wild designs or sayings on modern t-shirts. Some are really cool, but others are plain crazy. Did you know that the person who invented these t-shirts had to wear them in public in order to test the reactions of others? These brought him so much attention that he was named the inventor of a new style.

1960’s slogans for teens

The crazy trends of the 60s came with colorful and wild designs that attracted people instantly. Butterflies, tie-dye patterns, peace signs are just some of the examples. These slogans were meant to make people feel part of the same group or movement. Even nowadays, these t-shirts keep on doing the same thing.

Wacky tees aren’t just for young people

It is not a rule that only young people can wear crazy t-shirts with a funny message. Imagine how hilarious it is to see a senior dressed in a t-shirt that says something like – “wish I could have a hearing aid so I could turn you off.”

Elder persons can instantly get their groove back by watching the way people react to the messages on their t-shirt.

Politically incorrect

This type of t-shirts represents those who have a good sense of humor and lots of strong ideas.

If you want to find a fast way to tell people about your opinions on today’s world, then you should wear one of these t-shirts. There is a popular saying which states that politics is strange, but from what we can see, politics can also create strange t-shirts.

Fool for attention

Wearing a t-shirt with a huge slogan on your chest is the perfect way to attract attention on yourself (or your chest). The craziest the slogan, the better. If people laugh whenever they see it, then the message has been received the proper way. One might also wear a t-shirt that grabs attention because lots of people admire those who can boldly state what’s on their mind without having to worry about what people might think.

Everyone gets one

Fashion changes during the years, but clothing items remain the same. You can be sure of the fact that you can wear a t-shirt without worrying that it might go out of style. Not to mention that it is also very comfortable and you can combine it with all types of clothes to get different styles (casual, party, rocker, bohemian, etc.)

Everyone can find the type of t-shirt that can look good on them. And those who find their perfect match even dress their pets in crazy t-shirts. If Paris Hilton and her dog can do it, then so can we!

Make a Great Shoe Bow

Making your own shoe bows is easy if you have patience, if not you may want to head online and find a good quality shoe accessories company that will provide you with the ready made item.

Start by choosing the color bow you want to make. You can make the bow any thickness and size from a host of colors, maybe make one in each color so you always have a wide selection to choose from.

You will need ribbon, a pencil, glue or needle and thread and some snap hair clips. When it comes to the hair clips try and choose the smallest ones available, baby or young children clips will work best, you don’t want them to show under your shoe bow.

Form your bow around the pencil, this will enable you to pull it into the desired shape. It’s advisable to use a long piece of ribbon, you can always cut off the tails once you have the bow in the perfect design. Take your time, this can be finicky work. Ensure both sides of the bow are the same size and pull a piece around the center to create a neat finish.

With the bow in shape, you will want to cut off any extra lengths on the tails as you don’t want long ribbons hanging from your shoes once your shoe bow is finished. You may want to cut the tails off completely so you only have the bow on display, this is down to personal preference.

Now comes the harder part, you need to carefully remove the bow from the pencil without ruining the hard work you have already put into the design. With it in your hand you can either glue or sew the bow in place to reduce the risk of it coming undone once you are wearing it on your shoes. Remember you will need two, the second one you will have to work with harder to ensure it is an identical match to the first.

Take your hair clips, which should be the simple snap shut clips which will not cause damage to your shoes and carefully attach the shoe bow. For this you should use glue, but you can also pull your thread around the clip a few times to ensure your bow is securely in place.

Remember when securing your shoe bow to the clip you want the clip to fit in the center of the bow so you can easily clip the bow to the front, side or back of your shoe with ease, enabling you to create a number of different styles using only one bow design.

The final step in making your own shoe bows is to decide which shoes to wear them on. Shoe bows go beautifully with black ballet flats, high heels and sandals, you can clip the bow to your flip flops for a fun summer look or add them to a pair of stilettos to create a stunning finish to your wardrobe for any special occasion.

If you struggle putting the bows together, then choose a shoe bow design from one of the leading shoe accessory companies, order online and wait for them to arrive, clip them on and you’re ready to go.

A One-Shoulder Prom Dress

If you have a pear body shape you should go for an outfit that is loose towards the bottom. If on the other hand you have a curvy figure you should accentuate your curves by wearing a dress that is fitting. It’s also wise that you go for an outfit with a cinched waist.

While it’s rare to find plus sized women wearing one shoulder prom dresses, it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t wear the outfit. If you want to wear the outfit you should keep it simple. For ideal results you should go for an outfit with block colors and unadorned necklines.

If you have a petite figure you should go for a shorter dress in order to avoid overly long frocks that tend to swallow the dress. When wearing the outfit ensure that you wear it with heels in order to add some height. While it’s good to wear high heels, you should ensure that the heels are proportional to your height and build.

Do you have a large bust and you are thinking that you can’t wear a one-shoulder outfit? You are wrong. For ideal results you should go for an outfit with a sturdy strap that will provide you with extra support. To avoid your bust from showing on the dress you should go for an outfit that has a generous shoulder cut.

For ideal results you should wear the outfit with a few accessories and no necklace. The reason why you should avoid the necklace is to avoid distracting the look of the dress. Instead of a necklace you should wear a ring, earring or bracelet.

For a perfect look you should keep the exposed shoulder bare. This means that you should prevent hair from getting into contact with the shoulder.

While many people tend to wear a bra that is of the same color as the dress, this often creates an unpleasant look. If you have small to average sized breasts you should go for adhesive bras especially if your dress has a low cut.

You can also consider buying a multiway bra that you can easily adjust in order to fit the cuts of your dress.

Bagging A Designer Handbag

  • Check out pre-owned handbags – We are all surrounded by deals, price wars and shopping at our finger tips, thanks to the e-commerce boom. One can find some of the most iconic bags up for sale on some special online sites which curate and of course verify the authenticity of the handbag before putting it up. One need not spend big bucks anymore, just go online and browse in the comfort of your home or space to strike a great bargain. One finds many people putting up bags which maybe a season old or they have outgrown it or even if they are no longer trendy-but they are all designer brands which are in good shape and perfectly useable. The biggest attraction lies in bagging one of these at sometimes half their original prices which makes them highly affordable for anyone.
  • Research and rejoice – One needs to be patient and spend some time doing your own research on each piece featured online as a designer handbag. The more you try to find out about the bag, the better it is for you. You can exchange notes with the seller and ask for all kinds of paperwork like the original invoice, warranty details on the particular bag before going and buying it. It is important to verify all details to ensure that you are buying an original one and not a fake bag.
  • Inspection – Before you buy a designer bag, you need to inspect the condition it has been used in, if you are in luck and with careful research, you may come across some bags that have been hardly used once or twice, making them almost brand new.

Choose a Messenger Bag

  • Comfort. You will have to carry your messenger bag, loaded with a number of items, and how comfortable the straps and design is comes on top of the list.
  • Storage. Size and placement of the main, auxiliary and side storage pockets and spaces is very important. The bag should serve the purpose of containing what you expect to carry, and slightly more when you need it to.
  • Durability. Purchasing a bag each and every day is no fun, regardless of the price at each purchase. You need a bag you can rely on, without having to collect the contents from the pavement every Monday morning.
  • Versatility. The number of ways the bag can be used determines utility. Can you go camping straight from the office, and can you turn the laptop compartment to carry a couple of clothes for a sleepover? A bag which interacts seamlessly with other luggage is also considered versatile.
  • Security. Does the fastenings, zippers and Velcro claps provide sufficient grip to protect the contents from loss? Do you have to remove your laptop at the security desk?
  • Professional look. A professional look comes into play, considering you may be forced to do your elevator pitch in the elevator or street, or get the call from your office on your way to coffee.
  • Weather proof. Changes in weather may come unpredictably. How capable is your bag from protecting the contents from the weather when you are not able to? Does the accidental coffee spill cost you a laptop and a bag as well?
  • Ease of Cleaning. The ease with which the bag can be cleaned is one major criteria for an excellent bag. In this feature, dirt-proofiness also counts, since no one likes a bag which has to be cleaned every weekend.

Wear A Backless Dress Properly

Cover and Support Your Bust

For a perfect look you need to cover and support your bust. The cool thing is that there are many types of bras that can help you to achieve this. One of the best bras that you should consider wearing is a low-back bra. This outfit wraps around your stomach thus providing your chest with plenty of support.

This bra is most ideal for you if you have a well-endowed bust. If you have a small or medium bust you should consider going for the adhesive bra. If your bust is too small, you don’t have to worry of wearing a bra – you can simply wear silicone gel petals on your nipple. The petals will smooth out the curve of your breast thus preventing the nipple from showing.

If your outfit goes around your neck and shows only a small portion of your back, you should consider wearing a halter bra.

Go Easy On the Accessories

Accessories tend to distract the eyes of the people looking at you. To ensure that people have unobstructed view of your back, you should avoid wearing heavy necklaces. If you have to wear earrings, you should wear dangling earrings that will draw attention towards your back.

Points to Note

To be part of the occasion always wear an outfit that is right for the occasion. For example, if you are attending a semi-casual occasion such as a bridal shower you should wear a sundress that has been cut-out at the back. If you are attending a formal event you should wear a formal dress that isn’t too provocative. For example, you should wear a floor-length backless outfit that is made from silk or satin.

Since many people will be looking at your back, it’s wise that you tan your back muscles in order to accentuate your muscles. All you need to do is to apply a light coat of a self-tanner.

Types Of Sleeves In Wedding Dresses

Long Sleeves

From the name, these are sleeves that reach all the way to the wrists. In some cases the sleeves extend past the wrists. If you have marks or you aren’t proud of certain parts of your arm, you should go for a long sleeved dress.

There are many designs that will give you an elegant look. For example, there are some formal outfits that come with sleeves that cover even the back of the hand. There are also other long sleeves that come with buttons that aid in making the sleeves narrow and easy to wear.

Flutter Sleeves

They are also known as butterfly sleeves. They are characterized by a fabric that has been attached to the shoulders of the gown and falls loosely over the arms. These sleeves can be as short as caps or be as long as three quarter sleeves. Regardless of the length, they are all made of a light, floaty fabric such as chiffon. This is to enable them to easily move and ripple even when there’s a slight breeze.

Bell Sleeves

They are elbow or three-quarter in length and are often fitted near the shoulder but widen at the bottom edge. It’s common to find some designs that achieve the bell effect by attaching a long ruffle to a fitted elbow-length sleeve.

Puffed Sleeve

It features a gathered fabric that has been pushed into a voluminous shape. There are many variations of this theme which includes: short, bishop, and Leg o’.

Take Care for Wedding Dress

Let’s face it most brides purchase their dress well in advance and unless you are paying additional storage costs to the bridal store from which it was purchased, keeping it in perfect condition will fall squarely on your shoulders. In order to know how to store your dress to avoid any irreversible damage from occurring, it is vital that you take a look at the overall design.

If your dress is one of those creations that is covered in beads; pearls; sequins or rhinestones or any other embellishment then chances are it weighs a ton. Well; close to a ton anyway; but the main thing to remember here is that you will need to store it in a flat position. To do this first lay the dress out on a white sheet which you can use to wrap over the dress and then slip it under a bed. However, if you have pets in your home this may not be ideal. Many wedding dress stores will offer special long boxes in which you can place your neatly wrapped dress and keep it safe from pets.

Similarly dresses that incorporate delicate inserts or thin straps that hold heavier fabric in place should also be stored in the “flat” position. If at all possible you can also fold the dress once wrapped in the sheet or if you only have a limited amount of storage space then you can roll the dress, which will result in fewer wrinkles as well.

Lighter less fancy wedding dresses can be hung normally in your cupboard, but if your dress is made from silk or a similar natural fabric then it will need to be able to “breathe”. The best decision is to spend a bit extra on a non-synthetic garment bag; or once again opt for wrapping it in a cotton sheet and storing it under a bed. Also ensure that these types of dresses are not subject to heat or direct sunlight. Of course polyester dresses are the easiest to store as they can hang for months in your closet without any dilemma.

A few days before your wedding you should hang your dress on a hanger; all creases may simply hang out but if not then hanging it in a steam filled bathroom may just do the trick. Another option is to rent a steamer specially designed for delicate fabrics; and can be taken with to the venue to ensure you stay wrinkle free all day.

The more choices you have in terms of colour, the price range as well as the little design detailing, the better it is in terms of having more to choose from.
  • Body shape and size– In this fashion garment-one size does not fit all. So you need to be clear about your specific dimensions and try to find a pair that closely matches your unique body type. This is very important as good fit is always the key factor when you buy a pair of skinny jeans.
