For me stylish woman is someone who choose the stuff which suits her best doesn’t matter what all those recent trends dictate us. Got chisseled shoulders? Wear wide neck tops and dresses! You fingers are long and and wrists are thin – invest in rings and bracelets. Also you have to wear all your things with confidence and dignity even they cost pennies. If you don’t have this quality you will look like a mule in horse harness (we Russians say “like crow in peacocks feathers”) even in haute couture pieces and posh jewellery.
Why I’m telling all those things? Well, Ottoman Hands jewellery does not belong to Van Cleef & Arpels league, but wearing it you can feel yourself The Queen of Sheba (if you poses that magic quality, of course). By the way, Ottoman Hands jewellery is handmade and inspired by rich and exotic Turkish culture.
I like Labradorite, Aqua Chalcedony and Rose Quartz Three Stone Ring, Evil Eye Studs and Gold Dipped Pink Agate Necklace.
I guess Ottoman Hands Coral Agate Reversed Disc Earrings will look great with Filippa K‘s cute Layered V-Neck Top White, Rebecca Taylor‘s wide Crepe Pant, Marc Cain‘s Clutch Bag In Crocodile Look and Magrit‘s Violeta pumps.
You get bored with face wash and cleansing milk? Go for cleansing powder!
Dermalogica‘s Daily Microfoliant with Rice Powder and Enzymes, Papain, Salicylic Acid gently exfoliates skin and brightens pigmentation. Antonia Burrell‘s Luminous Light Polishing Powder with Tea Tree Leaf Extract and Collodial Outmeal kills bacterias and reduces redness and inflamation. DHC‘s Face Wash PowderFace Wash Powder with Protease Enzymes and Honey dissolves dead cells and moisturizes skin.
By the way, cleansing powder is a perfect option for travel – no spillage in your suitcase.
P.S. Girls with spider vains on face: I’m afraid this option is harsh for our sensitive skin.
Good old Soviet caricature
Mother Nature is not fair: she gifted some of us a perfect mane and completely forgot about others (I belong to the second group). Thanks God we can volumize our limp locks with help of comb and hairspray. Countless cosmetics brand promise us that their products will work miracles with our flat hair – all you have to do is choose the one which suits you most.
Here is some stuff ti check.
Christophe Robin’s (by the way, Christophe is a hairdresser of French beauty and style icon Catherine Deneuve) Cleansing Volumizing Paste with pure Rassoul clay and rose extracts or Aveda‘s Pure Abundance Volumizing Shampoo with acacia gum will clean you hair properly and Living Proof‘s ultra light Full Thickening Mousse and Bed Head‘s thickening spray Superstar Queen For A Day will help you to keep your hair big all day long.
Schott’s brown leather jacket definitely belongs to the category “timeless stuff”. 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.
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.
Jessica Rabbit borrowed her red dress from Jayne wardrobe (and peecaboo hair style from Veronica Lake).
Yellow outfit transforms into a swimsuit,
all you need to do is to take off a skirt.
Blouse + pants + wide sash = perfect cocktail outfit.
Jayne in brown.
Jayne in red (those straps make decolletage more sophisticated and draw extra attention as well).
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.
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.
