Katy Perry Fashion Disaster

The Grammy Awards in 2013 were pretty full with fashion disasters but a few mattered and a few were as bad as Katy Perry. She is a young woman with a beautiful body who likes to take risks whenever she chooses her outfits.  So this time Katy Perry chose to wear a long dress that had a green color and a very generous cleavage.

Katy Perry is a big American singer and songwriter but also a philanthropist and sometimes an actress. Some would assume that she should have enough experience to know how to properly dress for an event.  She had a huge hit with her Teenage Dream record and her tour at the time was a success. She also grew even more with the release of her single “Part of me” and a new album is going to be scheduled for the following months.

It was a shame that she chose that dress, which is not an ugly dress, but that’s why she should have at least modified it a bit so that it wasn’t extremely revealing. The dress is part of the newest Gucci collection but we all know how skinny and flat chested all Gucci models are, so it was a different story when Katy Perry wore it.

She probably wanted to go for the fashionable 70s style and even her hair suggests that she actually put a lot of work in her outfit. Her makeup was also gorgeous and her skin looked flawless, just like the skin of a 70s model. However, the fact that the dress was so stretched on her chest was an incredible mistake and made her look like a fool trying to go inside a tiny dress. It’s a shame that she couldn’t wear something that would have made her body stand out more in style because she has a very beautiful curvy look that would have worked well with the 70s style she wanted to show everybody.

Perhaps Katy Perry will learn from this mistake and next time she will choose something more suitable for her body shape and the occasion. Continue Reading

Fashion Items That Will Instantly Slim You Down

If you’ve put on a couple of pounds or you have been overweight since you were young, you know how sometimes it gets frustrating to dress and feel good. But whether you are on a diet or not, there are some clothes that will make you look and automatically feel like you’ve lost a few pounds. Here are the right fashion accessories any curvy girl should have in her drawer.

The one colored dress – Prints are definitely in and they would look good on an overweight person too, but you should try and make sure that you also have an essential fashion item for a curvy figure: a simple dress that comes into one color. This doesn’t have to be black, although black would slim you more, you can choose whatever color you want for this. Make sure that the dress goes a little below the knee if you are self-conscious about your legs and you will look perfectly. When it comes to the style of your dress, you should always go with some cleavage, exposing your front part and making it a bit flare on your hips and abdomen will create the perfect slimming dress.

The perfect pants – All you need to know about pants that will look good on you is the fact that they have to be fit. Don’t go for pants that are slim because they will make your legs thicker and shorter; go for straight or flared pants if you want to look a bit smaller. There shouldn’t be any limitation to color but try to avoid wearing beige or white pants as they might make your leg a bit thicker. Opt for grey, brown or black pants and they will become your favorite fashion accessories.

Fashion Items with Patterns – You should have about 2-3 clothing pieces that have various patterns and match them into an outfit. Patterns distract the attention from your wide parts and you can use other more ostentatious patterns on the parts you want to enhance. There’s a lot to play with when it comes to patterns.

These are just the most essential fashion items when it comes to slimming you down, but you can always experiment and find your own.

Wood Watches Trend

Your look is your business card even before opening your mouth to say “Hi”. You have to be careful on what you wear so you make a first impression that matters. The first impression cannot be easily changed. Think about an interview, the first date or even going to meet your partner’s parents. People tend to be keen on the first impression. From your shoes up to your hair, everything has to be perfect in order to be accepted.

You should know not only clothes matter. The accessories you wear have a say too. Whether you are a man or a woman, your watch says many things about you even if you don’t believe that. People look at your watch and try to guess the lifestyle you have. How rich you are, what style are you into, what kind of person you are from this single little thing as a watch.

2017 comes with its own rules to play by. Clothes are modern and exquisite, accessories are the same. You should know that watches have won a lot of terrain for this year. The new style is set by wood watches. Have you heard about wood watches so far? Well, it’s not so odd as it may sound. Whether you like nature and enjoy outdoors, or you are a fashion hunter, you have to wear a wood watch. Why is that? Because it’s trendy. Because it’s elegant, easy to wear and to clean, and it definitely looks very nice on any wrist. The watch strap won’t be so easily to bend or to be broken as it usually happens with leather or fake leather watch straps.

Regular watches are made of cheap material, rarely from a leather strap. You surely know after a while your strap will be broken. Watch straps aren’t made to last for a long period of time. You can replace them but it won’t be the same thing, the same sensation or the same look as the first strap. This is why you may want to get a watch with a wood strap. A wood watch is an eco-friendly choice because once broken it won’t affect the environment in any way. Wearing it feels like you have a piece of nature with you every day in any place or circumstance. Wood makes me think about nature, trees, woods, plants and animals. A whole environment coexisting in full understanding without the man to be involved or set in charge. A piece of immortality and eternity from the tree of life with you. Nature makes you think about greater things than your life.

If you look at an affordable watch which will last for a good piece of time on your wrist, the wood watch is a perfect choice! You can choose the best wood watch for you from a variety of watches of different design, size, price.

Fashion Trends On a Budget

It can be complicated to keep up with all the fashion trends when you have a limited budget. When most of us also have to use the money we make on other things than clothes it can be really difficult to make sure that you stay in trends, especially since trends are changing almost every day.

To make sure that you keep up with all the trends you will need to take a peak in your wardrobe. Before going shopping you can make a list of the clothes that are in and can be used according to fashion trends. Also, don’t forget to mention on your list all those clothes that are classic and can be worn all the time. Don’t throw away your clothes, styles change so fast, you can recycle things in your wardrobe within a year.

When you decided what items need to be bought and what you already have, make sure that you also visit a second hand or thrift store. They can provide you with other clothes that might be of interest when trying to build your trendy wardrobe, especially if there are vintage items in trend. Since most fashion is based on styles that have been seen before, it won’t be hard to find something useful.

Visit big brand stores during sales to get the best out of your budget. Of course, this seems like a sensible advice but few women actually visit clothes stores when there are great discounts available. You can always buy things before or after season and that will give you sometimes even 70-80% off.

Some women cannot help themselves to spend a big amount of money on clothes when going shopping; to avoid this situation, the best thing is to take a limited amount of money and never buy something the first time you lay eyes on it. This way you will know that you spend less and you will think a couple of times before actually purchasing that product. It is important to decide whether you need that fashion item or not and whether you can replace it with something else.

Miuccia Prada – An Italian Famous Fashion Designer

Miuccia Prada is a famous fashion designer that took the brand founded by her grandfather and turned it into an international powerhouse. Mario Prada started the Prada brand in 1913 and was designed to offer luxury leather bags to royalty. When Miuccia took over the family business in 1978, a lot of things changed while many remained the same; the quality of the bags and the materials used to make them hasn’t changed until today and many bags are still made by hand to preserve the exclusivity feeling as good as possible. She had help from her husband, Patrizio Bertelli who helped the brand become more commercial while remaining luxury and exclusive to the elite; today, he is still very much involved in the commercial aspect of the brand.

It seems that Miuccia Prada didn’t always dream of running the family business and was very interested in Political Science, a field in which she obtained a PhD. One of her other passions was art and theater and she studied and performed as a mime for 5 years. Her first women’s collection was ready in 1989 after having quite some success with black nylon handbag designs. The men’s collection was a bit late to appear, in 1995, but it marked the beginning of a new market for Prada.

The Miu Miu brand was introduced by this famous fashion designer to fill a gap between the common clothes and the luxury ones. Miu Miu is meant to offer affordable fashionable clothes for women and is named after her nickname. As fashion can sometimes be considered art and with her rich past, it is only normal for Miuccia Prada to be a big art collector as well as show her support towards the young artists.

While the Prada brand had a very good image from the start, it is Miuccia and her husband that took that potential and turned it into the brand we all know today, one of the most famous names in the fashion industry; not only were they perfect for each other in their personal life but they also proved the be an amazing combination as far as business goes.

How To Apply Makeup For Your First Date

The first date can be decisive for your whole relationship so you must make sure that you apply too much makeup but enough to look amazing for your date.

Start with a good foundation, you will need to moisturize your skin before to make sure that your face won’t look cakey. If it’s summer, don’t apply too much foundation because it will melt away and you will get it on your clothes. Make sure that you use concealer for your problem parts and proceed to applying your eyeshadow.

After applying foundation you should choose earthy tones for a more neutral look. Don’t go overboard and don’t try to make a fashion statement on your first date. Men don’t like women who have a lot of makeup but they also won’t like it if you have no makeup. A little bit of eyeshadow to make your eyes pop and some mascara is enough to obtain a nude look.

For the lips it is best to choose something neutral but also make sure that you moisturize them with a lip balm before. If you plan on wearing a red lipstick choose a lip stainer rather than a lipstick that will smudge all over the place. You can use a tinted balm for a better effect and the great thing about it is that you can reapply it during your date.

Don’t forget to add a little blush to look fresh and you will be gorgeous on your date with that special guy.
