Schott’s jacket + Jordache‘s classic jeans Farrah-Hi-Rise Straight Leg + John Fluevog‘s shoes AYN + Lisabag‘s green backpack + Hawkers‘s sunglasses Carbon Black – Emerald One = pretty casual outfit for a stroll in the sity.

About Jayne Mansfield and her wardrobe in The Girl Can’t Help It

1mjj

For a long time Jayne Mansfield was for me an epitome of vulgarity but then Kardashian family came in the limelight I saw The Girl Can’t Help It. First I liked her beautiful cosumes created by Charles Le Maire and after I read more about Jayne and change my opinion of her. Miss Mansfield was very intelegent and talented: she spoke Spanish and German, played violin and piano.

I think one of the main reasons Jayne didn’t get recognition she deserves is that she didn’t meet her Pygmalion director or producer who would take proper care of her career, like Carlo Ponti did for Sophia Loren. That’s why in her filmogrphy very few high-profile movies and The Girl Can’t Help It is definitely on top of this short list.

Jayne Mansfield wardrobe in this movie is an excellent inspiration for those girls with enviable hourglass figures.

The decoration on Jayne’s hips makes her moves even more sexy.

Jayne holds 2 bottles of milk close to her famous assets – without a doubt directer and screen writer Frank Tashlin had a perfect sense of humour.

For those who want to play a Snow White

Flawless fair complexion is a precious gift from Mother Nature and your parents, but unfortunately it doesn’t last forever. Sun and time leave frecles and dark spot on our skin, so if you want to be Snow White Forever invest in SPF and brightening products, which suits your skin most. Here is some of them.

Clarins‘s Vital Light Day Illuminating Cream has lightening Spergularia extract in it’s list of ingredients and Garnier‘s Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer enriched with exfoliating Lipo-Hydroxil Acid (LHA) which helps to even complexion. Both products contain SPF15.
And if you prefer to use consentrated stuff check SK-II’s GenOptics Spot Essence based on high-tech Spot Resist Complex and Biotherm‘s serum Liquid White Spot Focus with Red Algae Palmaria.
But be realistic and don’t expect miracles: all cosmetic products can’t change your skin tone or completely erase spots only even or make it less visible.

Hide & Heal

If you’ve never seen a glaring pimple on your face, don’t worry soon or later you will get it (yes, my sense of humour is weird). But seriously, even those lucky ones with healthy smooth skin time to time fighting with blemishes and pimples. Medicated concealers with Salicylic Acid will help you not only erase those spots but heal the skin.

Clinique‘s Acne Solutions Clearing Concealer and Cover FX‘s Blemish Treatment Concealer contain 1% Salicylic Acid, Neutrogena‘s SkinClearing Blemish Concealer – 0.5%. In order not to spread bacteria apply them with makeup brush. e.l.f.‘s Concealer Brush will cost you almost nothing (1USD to be exact), M.A.C.‘s 195 Concealer Brush – little bit more (25USD).
By the way, after covering spots smart girls wash their tools in soapy water (clean brushes = clean skin, you know).
Please, note that all these magic products will be useless and even harmful if you have a severe acne. In this case you have to visit dermatologist, otherwise playing a doctor you will make your skin condition worse.

Make it dry

Dry shampoo is a girl’s best friend when girl has oily hair or has no time to wash it. After applying this magic product don’t forget to massage your hair thoroughly otherwise you can turn your roots will grey (you don’t want to look older than you really are, right?) or dusty like your just came back from the desert.

Batiste‘s stuff from Hint Of Color line will help you to refresh your hair colour and Lee Stafford‘s Original Dry Shampoo will be a bright spot in your bathroom.
