Styles aren't Made to Last in Fast Fashion

Posted at 08:59 on 13/3/2013
"You see some products and it's just garbage. It's just crap, and you sort of fold it up and you think, yeah, you're going to wear it Saturday night to your party -and then it's literally going to fall apart. - Simon Collins, dean of fashion, Parsons The New School for Design

When she got out of college and moved to New York, Elizabeth Cline liked to shop at vintage-clothing stores. They were the kinds of places tucked away on side streets in Manhattan and Brooklyn, where a lot of hunting and a little luck might reward you with a great, inexpensive cocktail dress that no one else had.

Then she discovered the world of "fast fashion" - chains like Forever 21, H&M and Zara-and it redefined her whole notion of bargain shopping.

"The products are very, very cheap," says Cline, author of Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion. "The design is pretty attractive. And if you walk into the store, I think, for a lot of consumers, it's virtually impossible to walk out empty-handed."

"We want to surprise the customers," says Margareta van den Bosch, the company's hugely influential style adviser. "We want to have something exciting. And if it's all the time hanging the same things there, it is not so exciting, I think."

Prices at stores like Forever 21 are so low, "it's virtually impossible to walk out empty-handed," says Elizabeth Cline, who writes about fast fashion. How can these stores make so much money selling $10 shirts? Mostly because of volume.

Poor quality has turned the fast fashion label into something of a pejorative, so much so that chains like Uniqlo and H&M now reject the term altogether. The industry will no doubt adapt over time, but the days when fashion gets faster and cheaper every year are probably at an end.

Tips Guaranteed to Have You Shining Bright

Posted at 06:33 on 19/2/2013 in Cocktail Dresses
Sequins can add a touch of sparkle to a long formal gown or they can completely cover a short cocktail mini dress. Whatever length or style you choose you will find that a sequins dress makes any night a special occasion. Sequin dresses has a huge variety of dresses ranging from beaded evening gowns and couture dresses to magic dress uk cheap cocktail dresses with beaded trim and sexy little black dresses.

Sally McGraw, blogger and founder of AlreadyPretty, had some advice on choosing the right sparkles for your shape: "Since sequins sparkle and shine, they attract the eye. If you're self-conscious about a particular body part -- your hips, your midsection, your arms -- consider a dress design that features sequins elsewhere. For instance, a woman who would prefer to downplay her hips could seek out a dress with a sequined bodice and sleeves but a matte, sequin-free skirt. Direct attention to the aspects of your figure that you love with strategic sequin placement." "A sequin clutch adds a lot of glamour." Adds Kalli Mehra of Kokommo, "A chic sequinned bag is a must have to make a simple outfit look smart. Bags with dull sequins give a very antique and vintage look." So girls, get ready to rock that party!

Also, remember to wear one sequined item at a time. Since sequins are such bold pieces, always remember to go minimal on your accessories and makeup, if you want to make a stylish impact. Complete your look with small Swarovski earrings and a classy box clutch. Whether you are wearing the magicdress.co.uk cocktail dresses uk or floor-length evening gowns, an important tip to keep in mind is to use tone-on-tone sequins, i.e. black on a black base, white on a white base, etc. If it is a completely sequined fabric, a non-voluminous, classy silhouette will make a lot of difference in toning it down.

What do You Need to Make a Cocktail?

Posted at 09:57 on 18/1/2013 in Cocktail Dresses
When it comes to creating cocktails, the main thing to remember is that most are based on a combination of a spirit, something sour, and a sweetener. A standard rule of thumb for ration is one for sweet, two for sour, three for strong and four for weak.

Decide on how many cocktails you are making... Are you making yourself just the one or are you planning on having a party with several guests? This will allow you to know the quantity of ice, glasses, ingredients for mixing and garnishing you are going to need.

Making Drinks in Advance. The first time I hosted a cocktail party, I spent most of my time preparing cocktails to order and thus didn't really get to spend time with my guests. The drinks were great, but it prevented me from having much fun. And isn't that what a party is for? Keep this in mind: there are two ways to batch up cocktails in advance: with and without water. A cocktail without juice can be batched up a few days in advance, but citrus juice goes off pretty quickly, so be sure to make any drinks with juice the morning of your party. Ice. One of the most important ingredients to any cocktail. This is usually the one most people forget about as they think a tray in the freezer will be enough. Sadly with cocktail making a fair amount of ice is required. Here in the UK, bags of ice can be bought from any supermarket for 1. An important tip to always remember when making multiple cocktails is to never use the same ice twice. Simple foods. Such as hors d'oeuvres and other finger foods, allow guests to graze throughout the event as they feel the need. Dress Code. It's your party—feel free to go full-on traditional, or mix it up in something short and flirty. Specify what guests should wear on your invitation ("cocktail dresses uk" is foolproof), and if you're having a bridal party, consider putting your own festive spin on the bridesmaids dresses. DJ. If you want a dance party, and piping in your own music from an iPod is out of the question, then book a DJ, as an 8-to-12-piece band would likely overwhelm the venue.

If your dress is on the plain side, a statement necklace or chandelier earrings can really add life to your special occasion look. If you're wearing a necklace and earrings, don't wear a bracelet. Alternatively if you're wearing a bracelet and earrings, skip the necklace. Unless you're attending a casual event at which ballet flats or sandals might suffice, you should always wear heels. A classic pump is a great choice, especially for more formal occasions. If your dress is making a statement, choose a simple bag. If your look needs a boost, choose a beaded or metallic bag to jazz up your outfit.

Points You Should Consider Before Purchasing 2013 Prom Dresses

Posted at 10:29 on 14/1/2013 in Prom Dresses
When teenage girls get to high school, they dream big about their prom. Everything has to be perfect, and their dreams are filled with gorgeous dresses. Buying a prom dress is a major part of being a teenage girl-something to anticipate with excitement, not apprehension. It may be long or short, frilly or clingy, but the prom dress should be memorable both for the girl who wears it and for those who see her in it. This is why it is so important to choose a prom gown carefully.

BODY TYPE AND SKIN TONE. Knowing your body type can save you a lot of time because it can narrow down your choices to best suit your body type. For instance, a petite girl may look good in a short dress with ruffles or an asymmetrical hemline, but the same girl will not look good in a floor length dress. Prom dresses are available in many styles, so girls with different body shapes have many options. Typically when you talk about prom dresses, ball gowns come to mind. As the times change, short dresses are becoming more and more popular. Go with the style you feel most comfortable with because it will be a long night. Of course, black looks good in any skin tone whereas white will look even better if your skin is flawless. But knowing your skin tone before trying on dresses will allow you to choose a prom dress better. For cool skin tones will look best in shades of green, purple, and blue. Warm skin tones look great in earth tones like reds, browns, and yellows. Traditional prom dresses are still available in lavenders and pinks. You can also choose dresses in equivalent color, as an example green, magenta, violet, and royal blue. A variety of colors inside a dress is also preferred like those accented with floral, waves, checkered or geometric prints.

FASHION TRENDS. The trends for 2013 prom dresses range from romantic to sexy. Some girls find ruffled dresses are a bit too much, but for 2013, the ruffles lend a romantic yet flirty attitude to any prom dress. From my perspectives, essentially the most fashionable patterns for prom dresses 2013 are going to be these embedded with jewels, beads, sequence also as crisscross. What you'll want to do will be to make your prom dress shine in every single possible way and you are absolutely fit in it. You may stand out within this dress, what's extra it can add an accent of elegance. Sheer prom dresses for 2013 will have interesting cuts with minimal amounts of skin shown for a sexy but still wholesome look. Sequins are also making a comeback in 2013.

ACCESSORIES. No prom outfit would be complete with the perfect pair of shoes to go with it. When going for shoes, keep things light. Black or clear are the best ways to go. More than likely you will be without your footwear most of the night. Having the perfect earrings, necklace, and bracelet is essential to look your best during the big night. Whether you are buying your prom dress online or in the stores, make sure you give yourself plenty of time for adjustments and alterations. Try to buy the dress about 3 months in advance.

Choosing Long Dresses for an Attractive Evening Look

Posted at 09:50 on 11/1/2013 in Evening Dresses
Evening dress length depends on the formality of the occasion. For semi-formal events, a cocktail dress is fine. For formal "black-tie" events, a tea-length to ballet-length formal dress is appropriate. For most formal "white-tie" events, gowns should be ballet-length or full-length. Debutantes should wear full-length gowns for their debuts.

Modern evening gowns, starting in the 1950s, allow for a shorter hem. While vintage evening gowns fall anywhere from the ankle to mid-calf, the most flattering fall just below or above the knee. Crucial to these shorter gowns is the style, which should be elegant and formal, lest you risk appearing underdressed. Evening gowns traditionally flow to the floor. A proper hem should fall even with the floor, and must be sewn while you wear the shoes intended to be worn with the dress. If not, the hem will be too long and drag on the ground, or too short and expose the feet. There is no strict rule for proper evening gowns length. If you desire a more traditional look, wear a floor-length gown. If you choose a shorter style, the hem should end at a narrow part of your leg, right below or above the knee. This elongates the legs and creates a leaner silhouette. Most importantly, pick a dress that fits your personality.

Evening gowns are available in many designs such as halter, backless, strapless, but by knowing the shape of your body you'll know what gown styles will flatter your body figure. For example, if you're very self-conscious about your wide shoulders, you may want to find something that will slim them down and perhaps add more volume to your hips and thighs to balance out your body shape. With careful planning ahead, you can be the belle of the ball. Begin by deciding on your hairstyle for the event. This may take some weeks to sort out, especially if you need to change hairstyles and learn to manage the new shape.

How to Throw a Cocktail Party

A creative theme can make your party feel special without adding to your budget, and it will help you come up with ideas for food, drinks, and decorations. If you have decided it's time to prepare to host a cocktail party, the first thing you should establish is the tentative guest list. After determining who you would like to attend, you can select a date and time for the party that will fit others' schedules, allowing as many of your invitees as possible to attend. Be sure to include the type of occasion, and the style of attire if necessary. Decide whether your guests would enjoy a casual gathering or a semi formal or formal event. The occasion for which you prepare to host a cocktail party will likely play a role in the level of formality. If you are hosting a gathering of friends or you are having a cocktail party as a birthday or anniversary party, your home can be a good location. A business party or other more formal affair may do better at a reserved room at a restaurant, the office conference room or other outside location. A cocktail party is not supposed to provide a full dinner for guests, so a cocktail party is best held later in the evening, say from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. An evening cocktail party typically also dictates the type of clothing the guests should wear. Simple yet elegant evening gowns uk is normal for an evening party. A woman should wear a simple dress or cocktail dresses uk pantsuit with minimal accessories while a man can wear anything from a suit to a casual blazer and slacks. A weekend afternoon is another fine time for a cocktail party, and the attire can be a little more casual.

Decorate with table linens, candles and simple floral arrangements. The complexity of the arrangements and quality of the linens should reflect the formality of the event. One of the trickiest parts of planning a party is knowing how much glassware to have on hand. First, consider simplifying your drinks menu. Make sure to provide a good selection, as well as offering non-alcoholic beverages for guests who do not wish to imbibe, but don't want to stand out. Another option to consider as you prepare to host a cocktail party is hiring a bartender who is capable of ordering liquor, wine, mixers, and everything else you will need, and is also able to set up an attractive yet functional bar. Some light finger food is recommended however, not just to live up to your Responsible Host duties, but also to add to the theme. Little spring rolls, a bowl full of wasabi peas, perhaps an antipasto platter with olives, sundried tomatoes, salami and cheese. Make sure you've got a good mix of music. Start with something upbeat to get people chatting, mixed with some classy mellow tunes.

Dress appropriately to welcome your guests. You are the first person your guests will see, so it's important to make a good first impression. It doesn't matter how nicely the party is decorated if you look disheveled or drab. If you indicated on the invitations that it would be a formal event, you should wear a formal dress; in fact, you're better off being overdressed than underdressed.
