Handbags – The symbol to women’s taste

A woman without a handbag is very rare. It is something every woman carries with her wherever she is going, whether it’s a casual gathering or to a formal gathering.  Women carry a sentimental feeling for her handbags and she may spend fortune for the bag. But men on the other side may never understand why. You can in fact tell the personality of a woman by the size and the style of the handbag she is carrying.


Choose what suits you the best.

The basic and the easiest rule you need to remember is to know your body and your personality well. You don’t want to end up looking like a swagger if you are going for a formal gathering and you obviously don’t want to look like a working woman if it’s a party you’re going at. Keep on changing your taste for your handbags according to the occasion. Don’t fill your wardrobe with the same kind of styles. Be daring and try something new. If you have been carrying floral handbags because you think it suits you the best, try something loud and ravishing for a change. Change is good and people notice you when you have something new. Research demonstrates the kind of bag you carry reflects your personality. So, why not be spontaneous and let people wonder about you.

Balancing with accessories

It is very important to have the right balance with whatever you’re wearing. If it’s a party you are going at, wear something that will make you ravishing, like a mint mini dress and a small shoulder bag with a long strap to compliment your look. Likewise, just keep in mind to carry bags that will at the most flatter your body by balancing it with the right amount of accessories. Don’t overdo it, if it’s a simple tea party you’re going at, wear a classic floral dress with a simple handbag to show the curves of your body.

Be outrages.

Be fashionable and pamper yourself with handbags. Fashion is not a crime. Blend in with it. If you are the kind of person that is not into fashion and carefree about whatever handbags you’re carrying, then let us help you out with your fashion statement.  Everyone loves to stand out in a big crowd.  Now is the time to stand up, put on some good cloths and of course a fancy handbag to go with it and start shopping handbags. Handbags are now fashion statements that are available in range of colors, styles and shapes. They come with amazing functions and compartments.  The fact that handbags are needed by every woman makes it a good gift idea too.


If you are insecure with your fashion sense with bags, look into fashion magazines for models wearing similar cloth styles to you. Make a note of the different styles of handbags they have been dressed with. If you don’t like a particular one, note the style, size, color and the shape. You might like it in a different color and size. Keep in touch with the trend that’s taking over at the time. Be tricky and flourish yourself with different styles of handbag. Keep yourself updated. If your budget is limited, don’t worry, there are plenty of affordable fancy bags that will suit your style and taste.  Just make sure you have enough knowledge and idea about your style.

We hope this article makes you confident the next time you go for a handbag shopping with your friends. But honestly no one knows you better than you do, so trust your choice, know you body and your personality well and you will look stunning.

Chiffon dresses doesn’t soak unsightly sweat like jersey cotton or silk. So, this material can keep the maid of honor cool, composed and classy.

Pick Up Short Dresses

Tea length or knee length dress is the perfect hemline for a beach bridesmaid’s dress. It will not make you feel over dressed, weighed down,  get wet in the surf or drag in the sand. Buying a dress, which comes up with a staggered, short hemline guarantees movement while an A-line silhouette or a short sheath is going to accentuate the figure.You can also shop for a short dress that has a lace, satin or beaded ribbon withoutbeing overly embellished to make yourself feel beach-friendly.

Select One Definite Embellishment

One of the biggest mistakes that some brides make when choosing their dresses for their bridesmaids  is that they buy dresses, which are too formal. Beach wedding gorgeous bridesmaid dresses that are overly elaborate look out of place.

Choose A Dress Silhouette That Fit Your Body Type

Bridesmaids should select dresses which compliment their body types. One style doesn’t fit all. If your friend is top- heavy, make sure she selects a dress that has straps. If she has a pear shape body type, a fit and flare silhouette is going to make her stand out. A bubble hemline or a ruffled top will suit the bridesmaids who are thin and tall. It’s always important to choose a style that will make your friend feel confident, comfortable and beautiful, after all she is going to walk down the sandy aisle along with you on your special day.

Mix And Match Prints And Colors

If you are fond of blue, each of the bridesmaids can wear different hues of blue like pastel blue, midnight blue, navy blue or even periwinkle blue. You can even have them wear two toned matching colors like white and black, purple and pink or navy blue and pale yellow. Or how about a patterned or solid print in one definite color?You can always be creative with your fashion ideas.

The Return of Personal Cards

September 5, 2013 by janssen

Personal Cards

Retro.  Revival.  Vintage.  What’s old is new again and we see this in fashion, films and interior décor.  It’s not unusual to have a friend who has a 1920s bob hair style, wears 1970s caftan dresses and serves tea from her Danish modern ceramic tea pot.  Platform shoes and fishnet stockings are sold next to tailored pencil skirts and cardigan sweater sets.  The interesting aspect of this return to the good old days is of course that the nostalgia is compartmentalized.  I might love the fashion of the 1950s but I don’t long for the Cold War politics.  I like furniture from the 1910s but I appreciate having the right to vote more.  In addition, antique stores sell a brisk trade in old glass ware but nobody is getting rid of their satellite television or cell phones.

Of all of this retro fascination, my favorite is the return of manners.  Saying “please” and “thank you” go along way in making an ordinary day pleasant as well as holding the door open for somebody, wiping or removing your shoes before entering a house and actually adhering to the RSVP of an invitation.  Recently I have noticed another trend in rediscovering jewels of the past and that’s the return of personal cards.  During the 19th century it was customary for people to carry a set of small cards printed with their name and artwork that would be left as a reminder of their visit.  Eventually these cards became less personal and more professional and evolved into the business card.

Business cards still exist of course but more and more people are finding themselves employed in non-traditional or freelance work.  Professional information and contact cards are adapting to include more creative artwork and personal information in order to meet these needs.  Moreover, many women are finding it useful to be able to offer a card noting their contact information as a way to help friends keep track of the different social media applications.

Mommy cards are offered by several card printers to allow parents to exchange information at schools, playgroups and other child-centered social events.  Some of these cards include the names of the children.  I think this is great because there are times when I am actually greeted as “Larkin’s mom” and there are parents I only know as “Genevieve’s.”

Personal cards can be more dynamic than business cards and allow for more design choices and embellishments.  Rather than see these as reckless self-promotion, I think that they are the perfect accessory for the modern person who wants to be known for their ideas or abilities beyond their employment status.  My cards announce that I am a freelance writer while a friend of mine created hers to advertise both her day job and her amazing knitting talents.  My father is retired but still has a great deal of experience to offer and let’s people know about his knowledge and expertise through his personal cards.

I keep personal cards given to me in my day planner.  I tape them to the Contacts page.  Some people use business card booklets purchased at office supply stores instead.  The cards help me remember something unique about each person as well as the many ways I can communicate with them, i.e. phone, Facebook, Pinterest and email.  In return, I give my personal cards to friends and to people I meet that I think will be a good network contact in the future.  The cards are easy to design, affordable and creative.

The best part about personal cards is the fun had in designing them.  Instead of expressing myself through expensive clothing or jewelry, I can choose retro and vintage designs, photos and fonts for my cards.  It’s true that what’s old will be new again sooner or later, but having a personal style and staying in touch with friends never goes out of season.

Essential Fashion Tips for 2013

February 12, 2013 by janssen

Navigating the world of fashion can be a difficult task, especially as the clothes and styles that are ‘in’ can change from one minute to the next.  Fashion can be one of the most fickle aspects of our lives, and it is important we are able to deal with everything that the industry throws at us, especially if we like to be seen in the most current and up to date trends at all times.

We put together this essential list of tips for 2013 to ensure that you are always on trend and feeling great over the coming months.

Don’t Go Mad at Summer

While you probably cannot wait to hit the shops and splurge your cash on the best looks for this summer, think about what you are doing.

Not because we have suddenly decided you shouldn’t spend what you need to in order to look great, but due to the stark differences between summer and winter fashion this year.

Summer will be dominated by check patterns and vertical stripes. One thing you wouldn’t wear with any of them is horizontal stripes. Said horizontals are going to be the big thing in fashion for winter this year. That means you cannot follow the tried and tested method of simply adding knitwear and coats to your summer wardrobe, you are going to have to buy a whole new set of clothes. Avoid maxing out your credit card in the summer, or else you could find yourself with a lot of clashing clothing come winter!

Accessorise Now

Although the pattern trends for the year could not be any more different across seasons, what they do mean is that block coloured accessories are always going to be the best thing to top of any look with.

Therefore, what you can do is spend extra on a stylish new handbag, for example, because you are unlikely to need a new one later in the year. Try to avoid black varieties and choose the secondary colour from your clothes when choosing a bag, and you will look amazing.

Review Your Hairstyle

Do you find yourself looking in the mirror thinking, “I need to refresh my hairstyle,” but when you get to the salon you ask for the same style?

Don’t worry if you do, you are not alone in that respect. This year, don’t pressure yourself into thinking you need a radical restyle, but instead aim for a subtle cut that will allow you to tailor your hair depending on the occasion and how much time you have. This will allow you to leave it down when in a hurry and still look great, or be more elaborate with your styling when you have given yourself plenty of time.

Remember that managing your hair is as much about the products you use as the style you sport, so ensure you have the best range to keep your head looking fresh throughout the year.

Take control of your look in 2013 to ensure you have an amazing 12 months of style, just make sure you aren’t wearing horizontals with verticals when winter moves in!

4 Must-Have Summer Outfits

January 10, 2013 by janssen

I know we are in the heart of winter, but now is the perfect time to start planning your summer wardrobe. This summer, the fashion trends are all about slouchy, comfortable, flowing colors.  Embellished tanks are extremely hot and one of the most sought-after accessories is without a doubt the summer infinity scarf.  In addition, dresses as well as skirts are extremely popular and easy for anyone to wear.  As far as hair and makeup, look for less is more, but not when it comes to the lips.  Bright colors are the hottest trend this season so look for muted looks everywhere except for red lips. As far as clothes are concerned, less is also more.  Finding switchable separates that have the option of being put together in a combination of ways is what you should be looking for this season.  You don’t have to spend a ton of money pairing your wardrobe with the trends this year.

Summer is in full swing and most likely you’ve been making the most of it.  Summer is one of people’s most favorite seasons, but at the same time, it can be a tad difficult to find cute, trendy, and affordable summer outfits.  It’s hot so that fabrics and styles have to work with the weather and allow you to be cool while staying on point as far as the trends are concerned.  Some women feel like they have to be locked into the tank top and short look but the reality of the season couldn’t be further from that particular comfort outfit.  Here are four summer outfits that are affordable, cute, and versatile.

Chic and Styled:  The first idea for a summer outfit starts with colored cropped khakis.  Choose a bright color like neon pink or neon yellow.  Make sure to buy a size that is slightly too large so that you can achieve the slouchy look more easily.  Pair it with a cowl neck sleeveless tunic.  Put the cherry on top with oversized studded earrings, black flats, and a long necklace.

Going Out Right:  The next outfit is a great outfit for hitting the town, but it can also be something that you will be able to wear to the office as well. Find a lose fitting, printed summer dress either with or without sleeves.  Top it off with a cardigan of an opposing color and end with a skinny belt to cinch your natural waistline.  End the look with a variety of necklaces and bracelets as well as wedges that are the same color as your belt or cardigan.  You will look great for work, but also be ready for happy hour at the end of the day.

Ready to Hit the Street Capris:  Find a nice, lose fitting pair of jean capris.  If possible, find a more worn or distressed pair.  On top, consider a lose flowing tank with an embellished neckline.  Because of the embellishments, you won’t need a necklace, but end the look with a pair of flowery flats and some chandelier earrings.

Casual Jane:  One must have for all wardrobes this summer is the casual, ready for anything look.  Simply take a tight fitting tee shirt with a print and top it off with a jean wrap skirt.  End the look with a pair of moccasins and a light infinity scarf.  Top the look off with a pair of chandelier earrings so that you will look casual but still put together.
