How to Find an Amazing Wedding Dress at a Great Price

Are you getting ready to get hitched? If so, you’re likely looking for a wedding dress right now, which can be super fun. But if you’re looking for a cheaper wedding dress than most of the options you’ve found so far, you’re not alone. Wedding dresses can be extremely expensive, and the high cost of them can make it difficult to save money for other parts of your wedding or honeymoon. If you’d like to find a wedding dress that’s not too pricey, you’re in luck. There are tons of ways to shop for a wedding dress that won’t be too expensive. Here are some tips.

 

Tips for Finding a Cheaper Wedding Dress

 

  1. Look in thrift stores.

 

Thrift stores are a great place to shop for wedding dresses, and they should be marked down considerably. You don’t have to worry about them being dirty or ruined either. Most people wear their wedding dress only once before giving it away to a thrift store, so the options that you find there should be in great shape.

 

  1. Check out online outlets.

 

In addition to thrift stores, there are numerous places online where you can search wedding dresses that are sold at a discount. You might not get the best quality dresses for the prices that are offered, but there’s always room for improvement. Even if you pay half the price of a normal, expensive wedding dress, you can always have the one that you choose altered.

 

  1. Consider buying your dress out of season.

 

There are certain times of the year when people tend to get married. For the most part, this includes the summer, the late spring and the early fall. Avoid buying your wedding dress during these times of the year and you’ll notice that the prices are much lower.

 

Having a super fly, expensive wedding dress may seem awesome, but it’s a much better idea to spend lots of money on your actual wedding or your honeymoon. Use the tips listed above to find a dress that’s just your style and just your price as well. You’ll be glad you did.

 

How to Find and Care for the Best Denim Jacket

Every woman should have a great denim jacket and her wardrobe of clothes. This is a great staple piece that you can wear with all different sorts of outfits, including jeans, slacks, skirts and dresses. Moreover, you can keep a denim jacket for years to come without it going out of style. This article will present some great ways to find an excellent denim jacket and a few tips for maintaining your jacket so that it doesn’t deteriorate or need mending.

 

How to find a great denim jacket

 

As you shop for a denim jacket, look for a piece that is made of high-quality denim. You might have to pay a little bit more for this, but it will be worth it in the end because it will last a long time. You should also make sure that it fits nicely and isn’t too snug. You should be able to make large circles with your arms when you have it on without straining fabric. In addition, make sure that the color of the denim is one that you like. Naturally, there are a range of denim shades to choose from. Pick one that goes with the majority of your clothing items.

 

How to take care of your denim jacket

 

You might think that all you need to do to take care of your denim jacket is to wash it every once in a while in the same way that you take care of your other precious clothing items. Actually, this isn’t true. You’re not supposed to wash denim jackets because they can become misshapen and shrink. Instead of cleaning your denim jacket in the washing machine and dryer, you can actually freeze it to get rid of any bacteria and build up.

 

Simply folds your jacket and put it into a plastic bag. Put it into your freezer for 24 hours. Once it has been in your freezer for a whole day, take it out and put it somewhere where it can thaw. That’s it! That’s all you need to do in order to clean your denim jacket once every few months and keep it looking great and in style.

 

Tips for Actually Dressing Like a Female Adult in Your 20s

In order to dress like an adult woman, there are certain steps that you must take because it doesn’t just happen overnight. You have to make it happen!

 

In your teens, you might have been used to dressing however you pleased in short shorts and short skirts or cropped tops. In your 20s, things change, and it’s important to change the way that you dress so that you look more professional in anticipation for a career. These tips should help you dress your best.

 

How to  Dress Like an Adult in Your 20s

 

  1. Don’t show so much skin.

 

First, make sure that you are dressing rather modestly. You shouldn’t be showing too much skin in the 20s. If you’re going on a date or out with friends, this is different, but even then, try to limit the amount of skin that you show. If you want to wear a lower top during a night out, that’s fine, but don’t wear a short skirt or dress as well. If you have a short skirt or dress on, make sure that your neckline is modest.

 

  1. Buy some staple pieces to keep in your closet.

 

Next, make sure that you have several staple items in your closet. You should have a little black dress for formal occasions, a nice classic trench coat for winter, a nice coat for spring and fall, a few pairs of nice fitting jeans and several pairs of shoes. In terms of shoes, it’s a good idea to have a quality pair of tan, leather flats as well as a pair of leather booths for winter and a classic pair of black heeled pumps.

 

  1. Take care of your clothing.

 

Finally, make sure that you’re taking care of the clothing that you have. In your teens, you may have been used to wearing your favorites tops or dresses until they were basically rags, but in your 20s, this isn’t the way you want to go. When something becomes deteriorated or has tears, either fix it or get a new one. You can keep these things to wear around your house, but don’t plan on wearing them out and about unless you want to look like a bum.

 

Fashion Twinning Is Trendy: The Duchess Of Cambridge Tries It With Camilla

Some in the fashion business call this twinning, like the time you see a mom and young daughter dress similarly alike. For example, Coco Austin loves matching outfits with cutie-pie daughter Chanel, four-months-old, and recently the pair posed for a selfie, wearing black tee shirts and camouflage-printed pants. People magazine noticed the twinning and followed up with a story about the mother with the sweetest, photogenic baby girl.

 

Twinning has also recently turned up across the pond in London. Consider this one: The Duchess of Cambridge was twinning with her step-mother-in-law. That’s right; Kate and Camilla dazzled in almost identically matching deep green lace gowns at public events.

 

The color green has been a hot shade this spring, especially if you follow the Pantone Color Institute.com which sets the trendy shade every year for the world in fashion and design. Their choice is called Greenery and is more of a yellow-green shade. Still, green is prominent everywhere these days, and both duchesses have been decked out in various tones of the lovely gem color.

 

Whenever Kate wears a certain article of clothing, women around the globe notice immediately and then hurry to purchase the fashion or copy it as close as they can.

 

The pretty lace green number she wore recently was designed by Temperly London and featured a floor-length look with a sheer high-neck bodice and long sleeves and a thin satin bow that cinched in her waist. Kate turned heads in the formal dress as she attended the National Portrait Gallery Gala in London. She paired the classic look with new sparkling green earrings by Kiki McDonough, a gold clutch from Wilbur & Gussie and Jimmy Choo gold shoes. Her brunette locks were down and softly curled and bouncing as she walked, without a hair out of place.

 

Earlier in the week, Camilla the Duchess of Cornwall, led with the style choice in a green lace frock that hit mid-calf and showed off a scoop neckline.

 

Kate was gorgeous in green, signaling to her fans that the color is on-trend and ready to purchase now.

 

Leslie Jones Gets a Dress

Leslie Jones is one of the biggest names in comedy right now. She currently appears on Saturday Night Live, and she stars in the upcoming Ghostbusters film. She is known for her big personality and fearless flamboyance. Despite her success and visibility, there is one arena she is struggling to break into: fashion.

Jones recently updated her Twitter account to report that no couture designers are willing to loan her a dress to wear to the Ghostbusters premier. The red carpet event should be a great opportunity for a label to promote its latest designs, yet no one wants to put his or her creations on Leslie. She speculates that designers don’t want to be associated with a black woman over 40 who is not a runway sample size. Some designers have spoken to the press regarding sizing in the fashion world. They claim that Jones should have known ahead of time that no one would have dresses in her size to loan out for events. They seem satisfied with this conclusion, but Jones is not.

It is true that Jones does not conform to the Hollywood ideal, and that is one of the many reasons why she has gained so many fans. Her fans want to see her enjoying her red carpet moment in a dress just as glamorous as the ones worn by her thin white costars. One of these fans is Christian Siriano, who has responded to Jones’ tweets by offering to make her a dress. He has refused to accept praise for doing something that he perceives as being a normal part of his job.

Kendall Jenner Still Dealing With Anxiety As She Stars In Paris Fashion Week

If you look closely at model Kendall Jenner walking the runway for Alexandre Vauthier at Paris Fashion Week show, you would never know the dark-haired beauty suffers from anxiety problems. In fact, she and fellow runway star Bella Hadid wowed the masses, displaying Alexandre Vauthier’s Spring/Summer 17 creations with a-list composure.

 

Kendall Jenner has been quite forthcoming to her fans about her anxiety issues and is learning breathing exercises that have helped her cope with the condition. She mentions all of her achievements of the last year at her website KendallJ.com.

 

With the start of 2017, Kendall Jenner appears to be very comfortable as a sought after model at age 21. She also walked for Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2017 recently, joining Lily Rose Depp and Bella Hadid. All three women wore frou-frou fashion with lots of delicate and frilly layers, resembling beautiful, elegant cupcakes.

 

Kendall Jenner has many fans located around the globe, and they watch her every move, both fashion and beauty-wise. The model has been sporting shoulder length dark brunette locks for a while now, and it appeared that she had made a major hairstyle change with blunt baby bangs and red hot lipstick.

 

Faux or real, no one is sure, but most are betting that Kendall is just playing around with faux bangs or extensions. The bangs are reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn’s Holly Golightly look from Breakfast at Tiffany’s but with a modern twist. By the way, Kendall Jenner idolizes the late Audrey Hepburn and even mentioned recently, that if it were possible, would have liked for the actress to play her in a movie.

 

Kendall Jenner made those comments at her KendallJ.com website. She admires the late actress, not only for her fine beauty, but because Hepburn was “so chic and talented.”

 

Should Leather Evolve?

In the United States, cattle farming presents a heady amalgamation of ecological concerns. Cattle have been farmed for generations and continue to be an important cultural staple in many societies across the world. Herd animals can be conducive to healthy living on a small scale, but larger industrial farms have put quite a strain on the modern world.

 

While cattle farming has become more ethical over the decades, it still raises many flags for animal lovers. A large problem is that cattle farms are overcrowded, and that cows often don’t experience the chance to flourish in the outdoors. Injections of hormones and antibiotic treatments have manipulated cattle on a biological level, and the waste they excrete generates a hazardous quantity of methane emissions.

 

While some people are hard-pressed to eat veal, they may still be seduced by a fine leather jacket or supple purse, yet the leather industry is far from being ethically pure. The creation of leather itself is a very toxic process, producing carcinogenic chromium which can leach into the water supply.

 

Many people think of leather as being a by-product of the meat industry, but the truth is that a great deal of leather, especially high end varieties, are shipped from overseas. The animals used are often not a product of American slaughterhouses, and can be subject to cruelty. Calves are often used to create the most luxurious forms of leather, and cattle shipped from India are forced to forgo their sacred status to be processed for consumers in the West.

 

However, there are some creative fashion designers who are eager to use materials that aren’t animal-based at all. Phil Ross is an artist who created a novel line of products designed to mimic the texture and appearance of leather. The substitute is actually made from mycelium, which is harvested from mushrooms.

 

This mushroom skin is a part of the Mycoworks line, and Ross hopes to perfect the material so that it reaches a durability consistent with tanned leather. By experimenting with products and inventive ways of envisioning fabric, fashion designers may pave the future for both high-end clothing and animal welfare.

 

 

VillageLuxe Transforming the High-End Fashion Industry

Julia Gudish Krieger is the brilliant mind behind VillageLuxe, an Airbnb of sorts, only this time it has clothes, accessories and shoes that are for rent and not houses. It is based in New York and women gladly welcomed this brilliant idea. VillageLuxe deals with designer fashion items and the application and site enable women to borrow these items from other women at a small fee.

 

It is an invite-only affair and therefore not everyone gets to enjoy these services. Many women would like to be part of the network and many have signed up and are hoping to be accepted to join the network. These include the likes of Alexandra Wilkis Wilson and Leandra Medine, who are big names in the fashion industry.

 

Julia has always had a passion for entrepreneurship and investment. What inspired her to start VillageLuxe was the realization that renting fashion items is an untapped business opportunity as it would be a cheaper option for women and they would therefore gladly embrace the concept. She got the idea from what Uber and Airbnb are already doing with taxis and houses respectively.

 

Julia had no prior experience running a business and therefore faced a few challenges along the way. Her biggest challenge has been being responsible for the wellbeing of the people working for her and ensuring that they are working in good conditions and being compensated well enough for their services. But all in all, the experience has been a rewarding one and she would not have it any other way.

 

Julia is proud of herself and is very impressed with how far she has come with VillageLuxe. She is a hardworking lady who is committed to excellence and looks forward to a successful future for VillageLuxe. Her love for fashion drove her to do what she loves and she has no regrets whatsoever.

 

The Best Tips for Looking Super Fashionable as a Pregnant Woman

There’s no reason to give up looking gorgeous just because you’re pregnant. Similarly, there’s no reason to feel that you have to constantly look amazing when you’re pregnant. You have an extremely difficult job, and it can be a real challenge to figure out fashion and beauty looks day in and day out. That’s what the advice below is all about. Use it to strike the right balance for you and help you find a fashion look that’s relatively fuss-free and makes you feel amazing!

 

Dressing for your changing body

 

As a pregnant woman, you’re in a bit of a bind where fashion is concerned. You have a protruding belly that will likely make it difficult to find anything too slimming or flattering in the way that you used to wear before you were pregnant. That’s naturally the biggest issue at hand.

 

To counter this, just go with the flow, and by this, we mean that you should go head first into maternity wear. As soon as you start showing, head to your local maternity shop and pick out some new outfits. The great thing about maternity clothes is that they will grow with you. They often have elastic ruching on the sides so that you can wear the same maternity clothes as your belly grows.

 

You’ll also want to make sure that your own true style shines through in whatever clothing that you choose. For example, if you like wearing dresses when you’re not pregnant, continue to wear maternity dresses. You can even wear pencil skirts and button up tops if you get them at maternity shops. Flared skirts, horizontal stripes and thick fabrics always look great on pregnant women as well. If you’re up for it, you can even wear your favorite pair of stiletto heels.

 

Glamorizing The Winter Parka: Wardrobe Staple We All Need

The glam winter parka is a hot trend this year, and we all knew that fashion news was coming down the pike last August. In fact, Elle.com was reporting about couture parkas in over-sized street wear with lots of quilted padding and wonderful chic detailing.

 

If you live anywhere with dipping temperatures, biting winds, sleet snow or icy rain, then you need this winter fashion staple when the weather turns nasty.

 

Some women get bored wearing their winter parka, because it’s usually not too shapely a coat, can be bulky and simple-looking with a hood. You can, however, glam up this classic winter garment with some imagination.

 

On-trend celebrities like Angelina Jolie was recently photographed in Colorado on a vacation with her kids and staying cozy in a parka. The sexy star kept her ensemble all black, beginning with her $500 Burton Wiley Gore-Tex parka. She accessorized with trademark aviator shades, kept the shearling hood on and wore puffy pants and quilted boots. Underneath those layers, was a black lacy tank top peeking through.

 

You don’t have to have huge movie star status to make a winter parka come alive. These coats also look amazing with a dress and booties, a la Alexa Chung style. It works, although most women are used to wearing their parka with pants.

 

A lot of women around NYC enjoy wearing a cute beanie, instead of the hood on their parka. Keeping it casual means, jeans and a pair of Nikes, too.

 

The winter parka looks superb in over-the-knee boots or a pair of pumps. Footwear of many kinds is compatible with the parka.

 

To add another layer of warmth and sophisticated style, slip on a fur vest over your parka, faux fur, of course.

 

Baby, it’s cold outside, but you’re good to go.
