  3. How To Find An Evening Dress?

    October 22, 2015 by barbara

    Parties are a plenty this coming holiday season.  Dressing up for the holidays is part and parcel of the joy of this season.  I know that to many people, figuring out what to wear on an average day is hard enough.  So when you received an invitation to the parties this year end, you go to figure out what exactly does it it say on the invite. Black-tie? Casual chic? Semi-Formal? Is it going to be held at a fancy restaurant or the hotel ballroom?  Most often guests are left wondering what styles fit well and fit within a certain dress code.  Formal dresses or evening wear must be chosen with care and with consideration given to the event’s dress code.

    When you receive an invitation to a Black Tie Affair, then you know it is time to pull out all the stops for your outfit on that evening.  Evening dresses are meant to be worn for formal events and it is best to go with a floor-length dress in gorgeous satin, taffeta or beaded.  Accessorize with a dramatic necklace or dangling earrings but remember, don’t wear both.  If you are not sure, it is best to wear diamond drop earrings or a pearl necklace.  Do not forget to get yourself a nice clutch too.  Cheap evening dresses from ihomecoming allows you to make an entrance that will definitely catch the eye of everyone in the room.

    If the invite states cocktail, this means an elegant party dress with killer heels.  You may want to turn to lace or chiffon fabric with two inches above the knee hemline.  As for Festive dress code, this means bold colours, jewelry and sparkly details. You can spot this dress code on invitations for holiday parties and hence, it is safe to go deck out in a vibrant dress, statement necklaces, red heels or glittery clutch.

    The size and fit are important and must be chosen carefully.  An ill-fitting dress may result in discomfort and dishevelled appearance.   Colour is also important as inappropriate choice may clash with the person’s complexion. Many have a tight budget but not everyone is able to choose the best apparel despite spending a substantial amount of time and money on it.  Therefore it is advisable to spend some time to learn more about evening party dresses.

    So if you are going to attend a party of family gathering this coming December, you may want to consider Ihomecoming affordable evening dresses for the special occasion.  You can get all the perks of shopping minus the hassle.   Don’t forget to get the right makeup and hairstyle and together with the stunning evening dresses, you would look absolutely ravishing and trendy.

  5. Blackheads Removal You Can Do At Home

    October 11, 2015 by barbara

    Don’t we all hate those nasty blackheads on our face?  I get blackheads on my nose and my cheeks. What about you?  Here are a few ways we can get rid of them easily :-

    diy

    1)   Facial steam your face every week as it is great for opening the skin pores.  You can do that by placing your face over a bowl of hot water for 15 minutes.  This make it easier to squeeze out the blackheads.

    2)  You can try a homemade peel off mask by mixing half a cup of lemon juice, orange juice or tomato juice and a pack of gelatin.  Heat up this mixture in a microwave for 15 seconds.  Let is set for about 5 minutes.  Then brush it lightly on your face with a makeup brush.  Then peel it off when it dries.

    3)  Another way is to whisk an egg white and apply a thin layer on your face.  When it dries, spread another layer.  Leave it to dry for 15 minutes and then scrub it off with a warm and wet washcloth.  Try this procedure once or twice a week.

  6. Chanel Spring & Summer 2016

    October 7, 2015 by barbara

    Chanel Spring and Summer 2016 show was held at a Chanel-themed airport yesterday during the Paris Fashion Week.   The Grand Palais was transformed into an airport terminal complete with baggage carts, arrival / departure boards and check-in counters.  The models wheezed by in colourful outfits, wheeled luggages in hand and stopped buy at the check-in counters.  The male models were smartly dressed in suits.  I love all the vibrant colours and the whole set-up of this show.

  9. Affordable Cocktail Dresses

    September 22, 2015 by barbara

    Cocktail dresses are knee-length cut and sometimes they are a few inches above or below the knee.  This formal dress is an elegant outfit to wear for a special event, important meeting, black-tie event or fancy party.   Cocktail dresses are a stylish addition to a woman’s wardrobe.  There are many kinds of designs for cocktail dresses.

    Have you received an invitation for a wedding or an important event and are looking for a nice cocktail dress?   It is not always easy to find cocktail dresses and it is even more difficult to find cocktail dresses that are reasonably priced.  However, there are easy ways to help you find one that will suit you as well as a place for cheap cocktail dresses.  First of all, you would need to consider how often you are going to wear it.  If you opt to wear it to more than one event, choose a cocktail dress that would fit to any occasion.  A dress that would fit your personality and body shape is perfect as it gives confidence to the person who is wearing it.

    If you are pear shaped and would like to camouflage your waist, then a strapless dress is just the right one to divert the attention to your shoulders.  If you have broad shoulders, then choose a neck-tied dress with a bit of cleavage.

    For the lucky ones with hourglass figure, a tighter cut dress which shows off the cleavage slightly would be perfect. Do avoid high neck lines though.

    If you have an apple shaped body, then draping styles which can hide the extra bulge around the mid-section such as wrap dresses which also enhances the bust area would be good.

    September 19, 2015 by barbara

    I have always love the look of a white shirt with denim.  This classic outfit will never go out of style.  It is sexy and comfortable. I would say this is my go-to outfit.  You can dress it up or keep it simple.  Just add on a statement necklace and a pair of heels and you are good for a night out.  Something casual would be pairing the white shirt with ripped jeans and gladiator sandals.  So how do you wear your favourite jeans?
