  1. The Best Corset Dresses This Season

    August 6, 2018 by barbara

    For the longest time, corsets were part of lingerie and this shapewear helps women to achieve a curvy look.  Hugely popular in the 16th century, the corset has since undergone various redesigns and reinventions.  When I think of corsets as a fashion item, the images of Madonna come flashing back.  Who could forget the Jean Paul Gaultier corsets she wore in the 1990 Blonde Ambition tour?

    Recently, Kim Kardashian and a few other celebrities have picked up this trend and turned it into something that one can wear daily.  The street style is flooded with the trendy corset belts or corset dresses.  Seen on runways and celebrities, the cinched-waist look is everywhere, and while flattering, it can be incredibly difficult to pull off.  Yes, this trend could be a little tricky.  It is all about finding the perfect base layer to wear underneath that does not create excess bulkiness or make you look tacky.

    You can rock the corset trend in different ways, by wearing it under or over your favorite tops and dresses.  Oversized tops are paired with corsets to add structure to the relaxed cotton shirts.  They are pretty much another layer which you wear with your denim and it is more like a belt than a waist trainer.

    Whether you fancy the look of a lace-up corset over a dress or a bustier version on a top, check out some fabulous finds at ZAFUL.

    Take your look to the next level by adding a statement necklace.  Perfect for layering over a plain t-shirt for a cute daytime look or adding to a slinky dress for an extra bit of detail. The chunkier the better for me.

  8. How To Change Your Look Like Your Favorite Celebrity

    June 29, 2018 by barbara

     Wigs are becoming more and more popular with celebrities and in everyday life.  Just about 5 years ago, the idea of wearing a wig for anyone below 70 years old was seen as outdated or unstylish because human hair wigs are made for the elderly or people who are losing hair due to illness.

    Fast forward now, girls in their 20’s are sporting wigs every day and many are trying to emulate their favorite celebrities.  The attitude towards wigs and extensions has changed.  It is a beauty secret that almost 97% of the female celebrities wear hair extensions.  Can you imagine going from burgundy tresses to brunette, to beach blonde hair, all in one week without damaging your hair? As more and more celebs started rocking Brazilian hair wigs, we realized just how versatile they could really be.

    Wigs can also be used as a protective style. It means that it is a style to protect your natural hair from heat, color damage, weather or as a temporary measure while growing your hair.   You can be Rihanna sporting a redhead or a straight sleek style next before the week is done without causing any damage to your natural hair.

    The best place where you can buy good quality and realistic looking wigs at prices that are not sky high is at RealBeautyHair.com.  This well-known wig manufacturer specializes in high quality 100% natural human hair extensions and has been in business for over 12 years.

    Check out this lovely curly hair wig.

    If you are looking to change up your look for summer, testing out a new hair color, or you just want longer locks, a wig or bundles with closure are the way to go.  Trust us, you will be surprised at how much you love it.

    So hurry over to Real Beauty Hair to select the best styles you want.  They are also available at Aliexpress store.

    If you are always on the go, then this season’s necklace pouchettes and belt bags are what you need.  I just love them to bits.  They are absolutely godsend. I love that my hands are free when I go about my day. Some may be too small to my liking as it can only fit some cash and credit card. I like the ones where I can fit my smartphone as well.  Check out some of the latest here.
