Fashion Friday: Skin Care

Photobucket

I love Fashion but I hate paying tons of money to look great. I believe you need two things the knowledge of what looks good on you and the skill to find it for less. I encourage you to get rid of all the items in your closet that you do not wear. They cloud up your options to make really great outfits because you can’t see your clothes! If they are in good condition sell the at a consignment store or a place like Plato’s closet, or host a clothing swap. Clothing swaps are a blast!

   It all started back in high school I realized I needed to care for my skin. I was always at the beach as a teenager and I didn’t use sunscreen. It wasn’t until I got burnt in my 20’s that I really started to focus on using sunscreen. I also started using masks and home made remedies for my skin. I have normal skin it is oily in some places and dry in others. I found this awesome mask that really was easy to make a cheap. I found that making the mask and using it weekly really helped tighten my skin and leave it glowing. This was an awesome recipe because it was so inexpensive and easy to make.

I recently made it with my son and he ate the rest for a snack. I guess that was a good way to get rid of the leftovers. I intend to give all my children masks. They love to act like mom and take care of their skin. I hope you enjoy my easy to make Honey Oatmeal mask.

  I know this isn’t the typical fashion friday. I am however in the process of ordering some great stuff for less than $20. I thought I would share. I get so many compliments on my Madame Deals stuff. I try to wear my brand when I can to increase interest in my business. I think it is a huge help to your business to brand yourself. If you are not talking about your brand than who is. I just ordered my 6 gifts for under $12.00 including shipping.

   I am writing to let you know that you need to bring heels when trying on panties. I never realized how elevation could change how your panties sat. I found out the hard way after buying boy short panties and then wearing wedges. I ended up with a wedgie could by a wedge. It was a quick lesson because I had to run up and change my shorts. If I wanted a thong I would have grabbed one. I guess after wear ballet flats for so long I never considered a change in shoe would cause such a turn of events.

  If you are looking for a great suit for yourself or your spouse. This is the time to pick one up. I know it is summer and you are not thinking of a wool suit. That is why they are on sale. I bought my husband a Calvin Klein suit for $79.99. I got it on clearance at Marshals. I know this suit retails for $400 in the major department stores. We will have to get the pants hemmed but that is a $12 expense. It is always a good idea to buy items out of season. I know my husband needs two or three new suits a year so I shop all year long to make that happen. I would rather spend $400 on three suits than $1200 or three suits. I know he needs them and I know when to look for them. I would head to your nearest Marshals, Tj maxx, or Ross store and see what they have. I have been known to buy everything I think will fit and have my husband try them on at home and return what doesn’t fit. This also makes my life easier since dragging him to the mall or the store to buy a suit is torture on both of us. I guess he is a lucky guy since I am usually able to pick out the perfect suit for a great price.

   I have a pet peeve. It is people who wear shirts and you can see their bra straps. I would like to share the options available to you. The first is go without a bra. Okay, I wouldn’t do that either. The next is to get a bra with convertible straps. The third is get a bra strap holder. I got mine at the dollar store. If you are without this nifty tool then use a safety pin and pin your straps so they do not show. I have to say it is really tacky to show your straps. I hate when people wear razor back tank tops and their bra straps show or the one shoulder look and the other shoulder has a bra strap. It distracts from your overall look!

Fashion Friday: How to Spot a Fake Louis Vuitton Purse

Okay, Last week we talked about the wallet. How do you spot a fake Louis Vuitton Wallet. I think it is important to also know how to spot a fake Louise Vuitton Purse. This is a huge problem and it runs rampant on eBay and in the streets of most big cities. I also know if you save up and buy an item you want to get the real deal.

Here are a couple of hints

  After I closely examined two almost identical Louis Vuitton bags, I was able to clearly identify the original bag and the fake bag. Here are some of the things that I was able to distinguish in an original bag that are not in the fake bag despite them being in a similar color. There are many ways to identify a fake Louis Vuitton bag. One of these ways is by looking at the interior of the bag. Most manufactures of the fake Louis Vuitton bags are not cautious enough to replicate the interior of the bag. An original Louis Vuitton bag’s interior is made of fine micro monogram textile, microfiber suede, canvas lining that is red or honey, tone on tone polyester or cross-grain leather. If you come across a bag that does not contain any of these features, be assured that it is a fake bag.

    The stitching of the bags is also a good way to identify a fake bag. All original bags have even, smooth and straight stitches throughout the bag. You can easily identify this by touching the stitches, if you note that the stitches are coarse and uneven, that is a fake bag. The logo L V can also be used to identify a fake Louis Vuitton bag. The logo of an authentic bag is symmetrical on the bag unlike the fake bags that may have the logo off the center. Genuine Louis Vuitton purses  are made from a similar material and will therefore have upside down logos. The fake bags will have well aligned logos throughout the bag. The pulls and zippers of authentic Louis Vuitton bags are made of brass and contain the LV logo. A fake one will not have these features. The easiest way to tell a fake from the real Authentic Louis Vuitton Bag is the texture and smell of the bag. Louis Vuitton does not use plastic.
