Money saving trend.

Well here is a money saving trend.  Mis-matched earrings. How many times have you lost an earring unable to replace it?  All it takes is matching earrings complimenting each other.  Choose the
same color, try an ear cuff with an earring of similar design, a dangling earring with a stud for instance. Give two slim dangling earrings, one with jeweled details and one matching metallic chain, or match pearls—one long, one short—and geometric shapes—one triangular and one square. Have a go at two gold mismatched earrings featuring the same gemstone.
The possibilities are endless.

Malls Shop No More !

I have been noticing a trend when I go to some on the malls in the northeast.  Many of the large anchor stores are closing.  Macys, Wal-Mart even Target will be closing 11 stores in 2016.  Is this a sign of the economy or online shopping?


Although it is understandable for these companies to close stores that don't turn a profit it leaves us and the mall in a no-win situation.  Analysts predict that nearly 50% of malls will close in the next 20 years.
I guess malls aren't so hip anymore !

How Do You Carry Your Purse?

Be it a tote or a handbag, a woman's bag holds a whole lot more than just stuff, as Kathlyn Hendricks a body language expert has revealed.  How you carry your purse says a great deal about your personality.
HAND HELD:  To hold larger bags in their hand like a briefcase, they are calling attention to the importance of their job. 
 
Worn in Crook of Elbow:  Another popular way to carry your handbag is in the crook of your arm,  according to Kathlyn, this may be a sign of showing "status and position". A woman who opts to hold her bag this way, may also be trying to show off her purse because it is a status symbol or features special detailing. 
 
 
Cross Body: Women who wear their shoulder bag close to their bodies are likely to be practical  and more concerned with function than appearance.  'It points to the wearer prioritizing her freedom of movement over the display elements,' Kathlyn explained. 
 
 
    Shoulder Purse:  Women who wear their bags over their shoulder but allow them to hang casually aren't concerned with the way their purse looks, but rather, they want to carry it in away that is practical and easy for them to access.

To us it is just a purse.  Okay maybe a status symbol also. lol

Michelle Makes Designers Happy


American designers, love the First Lady Michele Obama.  It is not an overstatement. She represents them on the world stage with her willingness to wear everyday brands and famous designer haute couture.  But in January 2011: the horror! Obama sent American designers into a tail spin by wearing a British label on the occasion of a White House state dinner in honor of China.
The Council of Fashion Designers of America went so far as to issue a statement expressing the trade group’s disappointment.

 
This year 2015, Michele Obama  returned to the scene of the fashion crime when the White House hosted a second state dinner for China, this one for president Xi Jinping and his wife Peng Liyuan.  She chose a custom mermaid gown from Vera Wang Collection. It was an inky black floor-length dress in silk crepe with a hand-draped skirt and organza sleeves.

The dress' designer, Vera Wang, felt honored by the accolades.
"It is such a privilege, as an American of Chinese heritage, to have dressed First Lady @MichelleObama for this state dinner honoring President Xi Jinping and First Lady Peng Liyuan, of the People's Rebublic of China," she tweeted.

Dickies Making a Comback


Look what is coming back into vogue. Remember the dickey? Take a fake collar or shirt meant to give the impression you are wearing the full article underneath.  The neck and shoulder coverings have been around for a hundred years but come and go in fashion. You can have a layered look without all the layers.
