Shoes for Summer Holiday

For all good activities you going to do during that time, you need footwear to help you mobile. To make you feel good there are things you must consider when buying footwear.
First, you have to see where your direction is. Are you going to the beach or tennis court or other place?

Okay, since you know your direction is to the beach, you have to prepare water sandal. You will look gorgeous with your swimsuit on when wearing water sandal. There are few colors of water sandal; you can just pick which match with your swimsuit.

Water sandal can also be worn during rafting and kayaking. Also great for the shower, for rainy days, and can be used to protect your feet when swimming, diving, or beach walking. This water sandal is soft plastic sandals with heel straps for boating. Good ones can be reasonably comfortable and will last for quite a while.

Don’t ruin it by wearing socks or nylons with sandals. Most sandals are designed to be worn barefoot, so

Large Size Shoes

Sometimes a search for large size womens shoes results in buying a large size man shoes just to get something comfortable to wear. However, when it comes to dressing up for an evening, these large size shoes are often not appropriate or stylish enough to suit a dress or skirt. If you are wearing slacks you might get away with wearing a shoe style designed for a man, but you would probably spend your time trying to hide your feet.

Women like to have fashionable shoes to suit every occasion. Small strapless designs and sandals are available in large size shoes and you don’t have to scrimp and save to buy them. A man, too, likes to be able to buy large size man shoes to suit different occasions, such as dress shoes, slip on styles, sandals and tennis shoes. What person would want to go jogging with a large pair of laced up shoes? The various brand names do make the larger sizes in womens and mens running shoes.

Sometimes when you order online for

Buy Perfect Dress Shoes

What is the perfect dress shoe? I think you would agree that it should make your feet look sexy and elegant, match your evening outfits and be comfortable for walking and dancing.

The reason most women think of wearing dress shoes as a sacrifice for the sake of beauty is because 80% of special occasion shoes really are uncomfortable. But since they want to look their best for the prom, wedding or evening banquet, most women will put up with sore feet. You don’t have to, though.

Here are several tips that will help you find the “perfect” evening shoes:

  1. All dress shoes have heels. Of course – high heels make your legs look longer and slimmer, make your feet look sexy and force you to keep good posture. However, you don’t have to wear 4-inche heels to get all these benefits. Go for kitten style heels – about 2-inches high. They are more stable and comfortable.
  2. Another way to get comfortable heels is to choose wedge-heel shoes. Even if the heel is high, they are easy to walk in

Casual Dressing

To put more zip into your casual wardrobe start by expressing yourself using colors and prints creatively. Try new colors, color combinations, styles and accessories that are brighter and bolder than those in your career wardrobe. Color and style will boost your casual look and make you look and feel better.

1. Invest in good quality footwear and choose footwear that corresponds with the weight of the fabric with which it is being worn.

2. To get the best look from your casual clothes choose styles that glide over your body and do not pinch, pull or squeeze. Bumps and excess weight are not hidden by wearing bulky clothes but rather accentuated.

3. Wear sportswear appropriately. For example, sneakers are intended for sports such as running, jogging or walking. Jogging suits are intended for jogging not for everyday activities unrelated to sports or exercise.

4. To look your best find jeans that suit your body type and are not tight. To read the article “Finding Jeans That Fit” go to Sheila’s Fashion Sense and look under “Style Advice”.

5. Whatever clothing choices you make choose styles; colors and color combinations that make you

Fashionable Silver Earrings

Silver jewelry has the impressive quality of being both affordable and stylish. Silver earrings are by no means “cheap” — in fact, it is highly recommended as a complement to dark clothing, making for a very elegant and chic combination. Silver sets off dark colors and plays more on contrast, which makes for an extremely effective fashion statement. Silver jewelry and black attire is a favorite ensemble of artistes, as well as advocates of the popular “goth” movement.

All over the world, and throughout history, silver is thought of as a complement to gold. Silver as an element has been associated with the moon, while gold has been associated with the sun. The moon makes soft, mesmerizing silver ripples as it is reflected on a still lake. Its close relationship with moon imagery has made silver the color most commonly associated with dreams, fantasy and magic. Folklore has also endowed silver with special powers and healing properties.

Celebrities have also been known to patronize silver earrings. Oprah Winfrey and Sandra Bullock have sported chic chandelier-type silver pieces more than once. It is always interesting and a pleasure to behold the various styles and designs of celebrities’

Buy Discounted Designers Shoes

The trick is to shop for designer shoes online – and I don’t mean buying fake designer shoes. There are many online stores that sell genuine Prada, Gucci, Fendi or Versace at discount prices.

Online stores can afford to offer lower prices because they need to pay for the floor space or customer assistants, like the “regular” boutiques do. Also, large online shoe stores sell hundreds of pairs a day to people from all over the world, so they can afford to give you a discount. A third reason is that some stores have special deals with designers and offer end-of-season, discounted shoes.

You can expect a 25-40% discount, when buying designer shoes online. Be careful, though: if you find a price many times lower than you would expect, the shoes are probably fake.

Be careful not to order replica designer shoes. All ethical aspects aside, fake designer shoes won’t do your feet any good. The quality and comfort of any shoe depends on the materials used and the way the shoe is made. Even if replica designer shoes look exactly like the genuine article, most of them can’t offer so much comfort. Also, they

Tricks to Look Slimmer

1. Don’t wear frills or extra material that adds bulk. Don’t wear bulky sweaters, or sweatshirts.

2. Avoid shiny fabrics such as velour and satin.

3. To make your legs appear smaller wear dark hose. Don’t wear patterned tights.

4. Don’t wear oversized, shapeless clothing to hide bulges- they will make you appear larger instead.

5. Wear undergarments that have good support.

6. Dress in monochromatic colors without patterns. Darker colors will make you appear smaller – navy, dark green, gray or black.

7. Avoid horizontal stripes. Thin vertical lines will give a slimming look.

Choose a Comfortable Pair of Shoes

The first thing you need to decide on is your budget, as this will limit which brands and perhaps styles, you can buy. Many discount footwear stores have great sales, sometimes giving you up to 80% off the original price or even running two for the price of one sales. So, if you see sales like these, take advantage of them!

Once you’ve decided on your budget, you should think about what type of shoe you want to buy. Do you plan on being on your feet a lot? Do you want you shoes to be a fashion statement, or are you more of a ‘sensible shoe’ type of person? They are many new hot fashions this summer, ranging from dainty sandals to towering stilettos. While a pair of cute high heels may match your new skirt perfectly, they may not be right for you if you are going to on your feet, running around all day. So, make sure that you put some thought into where- and how long- you will be wearing them.

When it comes to actually trying on a pair of shoes, there are some general rules that you should try to

About Hoodies

The obvious reason is that the hoodie part of the top can obscure the face of the wearer, so some wearers have committed criminal acts such as shoplifting using the hood to conceal their identity from CCTV cameras in shopping centres

The largest shopping centre in the UK, Bluewater in Kent, launched a Code of Conduct which bans its shoppers from sporting hoodies and baseball caps. Hoodies and baseball caps are still on sale there, however. Prime Minister Tony Blair has openly supported this stance and vowed to clamp down on the anti-social behaviour hoody wearers are often associated with.

What is often ignored is the fact that the hoodie was developed for a very different reason – keeping warm! Surfers and skateboarders have known this for some time and the original functionality of the clothing has evolved into a fashion item.

What a lot of the media gloss over is that many hoodies are customized or at least branded with logos, names etc which tend to negate the anonymity anyway. At least half of the hoodies sold have been customized in some way, even if it’s just a common brand name – such as

Expressing Yourself With T-Shirts

In my own experience I have been a cancer survivor for 5 1/2 years. In my first summer my struggle inspired my sister-in-law to get active in the Tacoma, Washington Relay For Life program of the American Cancer Society. Every spring they host a weekend walk and fund raiser. A large part of that walk is the Survivor’s walk celebrating all those people currently battling cancer and those who are cancer free.

All the survivors walking in that event are given purple t-shirts with the Relay For Life logo on the front. On the back is the saying: I Am… Living Breathing Inspiration.

I love wearing my t-shirt with that saying on it both for my own feelings and for the inspiration of those around me.

Another situation involved a camping/hiking trip my partner and I took several years ago in the Columbia River gorge near The Dalles, Oregon. This was the year the Sesquicentennial of the Oregon Trail was being reenacted. A replica of the 1843 wagon trains was in progress coming all the way from the mid-west to Portland, Oregon.

When we joined them they had arrived in The Dalles and were

Shoes, Dress, and a Hairdresser

My neighbor went to her hairdresser to get all of her hair cut off.. Onlookers gasped at the thought of cutting it all off. You could hear sighs of pain from other clients as the clipped hair fell to the floor. The hairstylist cut, snipped and dismissed her from the chair. AAHHHH! I thought to myself. Is she going to shape it up or comb it or something? Immediately I started to think of the scene from the movie, Waiting to Exhale when Angela Bassetts’ character was depressed and upset about the breakup of her marriage. She sat in front of the mirror and just started cutting away at her hair. The way she cut it, you would not believe she had a mirror. I saw my neighbor walking towards me and I could not believe she did it. She looked like a depressed, tired old maid. (Translation… Someone who does not have anyone to love and/or is not happy with her life.) Her earrings were small, simple and plain. The dark circles under her eyes complimented by her uneven skin tone made her look like she never owned a mirror. A hairstylist is supposed to make you

Luxury of Shahtoosh

In Persian, ‘Shahtoosh’ means ‘King of Wools’–a perfect description for an ultra fine wool that’s softer than either Angora, Pashmina and Cashmere.

Shahtoosh shawls are so incredibly lightweight that they can be passed through an average sized finger ring, hence their common name, ‘Ring Shawls’. The reason they’re so light is because each hair of the Tibetan Antelope is around 6 times thinner than the average human hair. That’s a very fine hair!

Each shahtoosh shawl requires about 350 grams of wool. Being as each Tibetan Antelope yields no more than 125 – 150 grams, it takes the wood of three animals to make just one shawl.

How Is The Wool Harvested?

You may be wondering why there’s so much fuss about shahtoosh shawls. We take the wool of plenty of other animals, after all.

That’s true, but the Tibetan Antelope is different.

In order to collect the fine hairs, these beautiful animals have to be slaughtered. Yes, that’s right. Where we sheer or comb other animals in order to harvest their wool, the hairs of the Tibetan Antelope need to be individually plucked from the skin.

Just imagine, three animals

About Travel With Style

Trip to the Airport

For your trip to the airport dress comfortably but don’t overdo it. Don’t be a “show off” at the airport, you’ll draw as much negative attention as the “scruffy person”.

Remember you’ve got security to clear so keep the jewelry simple to avoid setting off alarms and creating long lineups of backlog as they take you apart one piece at a time.

Carry a travel wallet with slots for your id, passport and boarding pass – it will keep things moving smoothly. Have a pocket in your carry on where you can place your jewelry and coins in prior to clearing security.

Remember your jacket, poncho, or overgarmet may be removed so make sure what your wearing underneath is appropriate for others to view.

Basics to Pack
Pack a lightweight coat, white or light colored shirt that goes with many of your other wardrobe pieces, neutral pants, and a tote bag.

Be sure to include a cardigan for the cooler evenings. Pack a versatile dress than you can dress up or down depending on what your plans are. Pack both flat sandles and sandles with a slight heel

Rubber Band Bracelets

The rubber band bracelets have become the most-preferred and the most inexpensive way to show your support for a cause, or to donate to charity, or to raise awareness about an issue or a disease. You can see them used for extremely different purposes, such as to proclaim one’s religious affiliation, or as a fashion statement! The rubber band bracelet is the modern way of wearing your heart on your sleeve, er wrist!

What are rubber band bracelets? They are simply loops of solid rubber, worn on the wrist by stretching and sliding them over the palm of one’s hands. They come in any color imaginable — yellow, orange, blue, green, black, pink… Some are translucent, others glow in the dark… And they are worn in support of many a message or cause — they are as versatile as they are stretchable! Not all rubber band bracelets are rubber, though. Some of them are made of silicone.

You can have any message stamped over the rubber band bracelets, or designs crafted on them. In fact, some of the latest rubber band bracelets sport more than one message! Rubber band bracelets usually sell for $1-5 a piece,

Boho Chic, Boho Style

Bold accessories will remain a staple in every fashion-forward woman’s wardrobe. Sorry Boho Chic haters, belts and boots look like they have staying power along with pendants, over-sized earrings, long chains and drop earrings. They may be staying on the shelves, but stones, feathers and shells that decorated the ears of spring and summer’s hottest fashionistas will be replaced by rhinestone-encrusted chandeliers and delicate drops. The long necklaces paired with the over-stated earrings will morph slightly from heavy, multi-layered, multi-stone piece to a simpler, chic, one-strand accessory. While the length and materials remain the same (gold still the winner), the detail will shift from Boho’s accessories to fall and winter’s fabrics.

Ultra-rich fabrics like lace and brocade are the hottest additions to fall and winter lines. Back-again-black along with gray and purple are the most popular for jaw-dropping dresses, frilly tops and tweed trousers that will line racks and closets everywhere in upcoming months. The feminine, flowy look will still be desirable, but it will be achieved with blouson skirts and culottes instead of sheer, floor-length numbers. If you’re concerned newer more regal fabrics like velvet, lace and tweed will still look make you look more thirties

Back to Black

In industries around the world, high fashion, euro-fashion, action sports/surfer chic, etc. the past year has been all about color, from the overly-saturated HOT pink to orange to yellow and even bright greens. BUT, for all you girls who love those classic black pants or simple black cocktail dress, this fall is YOUR season! And for those who love to play up the girly side, the trend is heading towards more feminine and attention-getting pieces. Cocktail-length dresses in velvet or chiffon, soft and touchable “flowy” knits, sexy suits- pant or skirt, and even a plain black tee with a little colorful jewelry for flair are going to be saturating the streets. It’ll be nice to enjoy being comfortable, yet chic, in the most flattering color for all body types.

Key pieces for the season are “the little black dress,” which I’m sure all of you own at least one; black velvet or chiffon; and the classic black trench adorned with bows, rosettes & beading.

If you are lacking any of these essentials and are about to rush to the store, I suggest you start from the top down. By that I mean, head down to the

Shoe Styles to Wear With Skinny Jeans

Go with ankle boots

Ankle boots are back, and you’ll find them everywhere in as many styles and colors you can imagine. Whether you like cowboy-inspired boots, lace-ups or slouchy suede, you’ll be sure to find an ankle boot to suit your style. Ankle boots look fabulous with skinny jeans; their abbreviated shape sets off slim legs perfectly, elongating your legs by showing more of them. Plus, they’re fun, funky and right on trend.

Choose classic tall boots

Knee-high boots are the iconic foil to skinny jeans. Tuck your skinnies into tall boots and you’re instantly stylish, chic and polished. Classic riding boots are especially flattering with skinny jeans, so try an always-fashionable flat-heeled equestrian style to emanate preppy-cool style and take your look up a notch. But when it’s time to dress up a bit more, heeled tall boots paired with skinnies–especially skinnies in a super-dark or black wash–make you look glamorous and ready for a night out.

Try a flirty flat

Ballet flats have been popular for awhile now, and their staying power hasn’t diminished. While ballets look cute with other pant styles too, they’re especially adorable with skinny jeans. A

Fall Wardrobe On A Budget

First off forget the designe names. Yes they’re great if you can afford them but if not take their ideas and then go shopping. There are plenty of similar after market designs that are very close and won’t break the bank.

Items such as blue jeans, pheasant skirts, v necks, and wool sweaters can be purchased without the designer name. Also watch for some great sales as the stores begin to already bring in their winter stock. This time of year you can save anywhere from 30% to 50%.

Looking fresh and stylish is important and when you get to save good money you don’t feel so bad about tossing an item that’s starting to show its wear.

You can also save plenty on shoes by watching for sale or shopping at a shoe warehouse. The shoe warehouses have plenty of style choices you just might have to hunt a little bit to find your size. Well worth the time for the savings!

Most important is fit and comfort, and of course you need to be certain they’ll work with your wardrobe. This season the wedge continues in popularity. Slip ons are also still

Perfect Swimsuit For You

Plus Size: Let us begin this guide to swimsuit shopping with the women
who often feel most rejected by swimsuit manufacturers. While all women feel
somewhat self-conscious in a skin-baring swimsuit, women who wear plus sizes
often feel that they will never find a good swimsuit fit for their unique bodies.
However, these women often have the sexiest curves to show off in a swimsuit. In
the 1950s, curves were in; in the current era, curves may be making a reentry into
the vogue of swimsuit fashion. To accentuate and flatter curves in a plus size
body, try pairing a light colored, waist-defining tankini top with more subdued
bikini bottoms. Choosing a swimsuit with a high percentage of Lycra or spandex
and a high-cut leg will actually shave 10 pounds off of your appearance. To slim
and shape the stomach, make sure tankini tops and bottoms meet. This will
prevent any unsightly stomach bulges.

Pear Shapes: Women with pear shapes often have an extremely
challenging experience when buying a swimsuit. The combination of a relatively
small upper body with large hips and thighs can look somewhat unflattering in the
wrong swimsuit. Fortunately, plenty of flattering swimsuit options
