Tips on Wearing Fashion Jewelry

Fashion jewelry is the perfect way to spice up an outfit. It can make an inexpensive outfit appear interesting. Here are some quick tips for wearing jewelry:

Contrasting colors:
Matching your jewelry with your outfit can drown out your look. Instead, choose contrasting colors – some popular colors that look great with each other include turquoise blue jewelry with a yellow top/dress, a green top with an amethyst necklace or a gray top/dress with black onyx earrings.

Choose Jewelry That Will Flatter Your Body Type:
As we know, clothing is cut differently for different body types. Though this is less so in terms of jewelry, the same concept applies – certain types of jewelry are more appropriate for some than others. For instance, plus size women look great in thin pendant necklaces and bracelets and petite women are more suited to large bangles and chunky bead necklaces.

Layering jewelry:
Layering your jewelry pieces can create a unique look without spending extra money. You can mix and match fine and fashion jewelry. For instance, diamond earring with a chunky gemstone necklace or silver earrings with a vintage bead necklace? Yes, mixing fine and fashion jewelry can look great together if done right. Make sure one doesn’t overshadow the other – for instance, a red bead necklace with an orange bracelet won’t look that hot!

Classy but Not Costly!

I love the designer handbags, they are just so delicious! They lead the fashion in design and features but when it comes to a reasonable cost. Watch out for your pocketbook! I found this site and this will have to be our little secret! It is called www.iflyreplicas.com and the name says it all. They sell replica handbags on their very cool site. Just go to the site and click on the button “View All Collections” at the top. Immediately you see all the collections they have replicas of. You will not find replica handbags anywhere else that are made with such high quality materials and strong stitching. These are not throw aways but very nice bags made to look like the real thing baby! The best part is when you put it in the shopping cart and add up your price! I love it when I find a great bargain web site.   This one earns four hearts <3<3<3<3 for love it to the max! Check it out and remember who sent you!

QUIERO QUE TE QUEDES JUNTO A MI

I want to learn to play this bachata. I love the Dominican accent. Along with Argentinian and Colombian, it might be the prettiest Spanish accent (IMHO)…

IL PLEUT, MAIS CE N’EST NES PAS LA PLUE QUI OCCUPE MES NUITS…

Working on an acoustic version of this. I don’t know why French people say there are no good French musicians. Just think of Vanessa Paradis, Emilie Simon, -M-, Nouvelle Vague, Passi, not to mention the obvious like Serge Gainsbourg… you’re all fous if you think that…!!

THE FUTURE OF POP IS TODAY

My boss sent this to me today and said he thought I might like it. First of all, of COURSE I like it. Second of all, how cool that my boss was the one to send it to me…! It’s the official video to ‘Bright Lit Blue Skies’ by Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti.

[This post's title comes from that age-old question 'Would you rather be the best musician in an average band, like Russell Hammond from Almost Famous, or the worst musician in an incredible band, like Ringo Starr from the Beatles. I'd rather be Ringo because to be fair, I bet if Ringo were in a mediocre band, he'd be the best musician in it. And he still got to hang out with the other Beatles. And he got to sing lead vocals on "Yellow Submarine." A clip from the film clip included below to enrich the blogosphere...]

Bad Bra Nightmare?

You can’t imagine the amount of advice I have started to receive since I started my fashion site and some of it good and some not worth the print. However one of the best bits of advice was to try out the JC Penny’s underwire fashion bras in the Flirtilicious line. I have received so many compliments on how my shape looks since I started purchasing and wearing the underwire and pushup bras. The Victoria Secret push-up is another terrific bra that makes your shape really nice when you wear the lower cut tops. For instance the Hollister or many of my dresses require some nice breast presentation! Ha-ha and it is not the cut of the top but what you have underneath that makes it look terrific! YES?:)
