It might sound a bit strange but wearing pants and jacket you can highlight your femine side at most.
Zimmermann’s black Bowerbird Blazer + Cushnie et Ochs‘s very sexy Gloss Jersey Twisted Bodysuit and black High-Wasted Pants (there is a white option too) + John Fluevog’s pumps Andromeda + Valextra‘s blue Twist Pochette + Ricardo Basta‘s Dragon Brooch = posh and at the same time elegant outfit special occasions.
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.

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.
Yumi Ueno’s cute Energy necklaces and earrings will look perfectly stylish with simple but feminine clothes like Kate Spade’s Flutter Sleeve Top and Trashy Diva‘s Pocket Skirt.
And Trashy Diva‘s timeless Audrey Pencil Dress will be a perfect monochrome background for Yumi Ueno‘s funky brooches – Paradise Fish, Angel Bird and Color of Universe.
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.
Some personal information about me: when the weather is nasty, my eyes start craving for bright colours.
Yellow Maxi Trapeze Dress Sunglow, created by Swedish designers for Filippa K, will look stylish with Christina Debs‘s green earrings and ring from Candy Pop collection, Aquazzura‘s red Zani Pump 105 and Roger Vivier‘s lovely Mini Love Tattoo Clutch in Patient Leather.
Modern style gurus will call this outfit plain and common, but I like clothes which make woman look and feel like a woman not like a victim of latest trend created by “ingenious” designer with with zero enormous craving for fame.
