Costume designer Edith Head is the header for Google today. I love it and love everything fashion. =)
Homecoming is literally next week and some of us are all packed and ready to go. And others are still running to the malls and overnighting orders. One thing we want to keep in mind is that it will be Fall in Greensboro, NC so please do not forget those jackets and coats. I do hope there is coat check or that will just be foolery!
So first on the list is body type and shape. Look for clothing that flatters your figure as opposed to shatters it. Blazers are so an everyday thing but can be that piece that saves the outfit. I know black is a boring color but I haven’t seen anyone that looks bad in it, capish? There are also maroons, browns, dark oranges and forest greens that would not be too bright for the fall season.
Next are shoes…here we go. If you plan on wearing an open toe shoe, first make sure the toes are polished and manicured. Next, we do not need any toe over the front of the shoe going on. There are tons of things you can find at your local DSW or CVS that you can stick under the ball of your foot to keep your foot in place at all times. Also, make sure the shoes you plan on wearing, you can walk in because otherwise you will be uncomfortable and everyone else will know you are uncomfortable.
Make up….this is always an interesting topic. I go for the nude eye (eyeliner and mascara), pink cheek, and bold lip but everyone is different. All I ask that this is not the time to try something insane that you have never tried before. If you have done the bold eye and lip and it works, stick with it but this is not the time to walk around looking like a clown. I will laugh. And plus we are all beautiful, we don’t need a bunch of make-up. =)
Hair….this topic will have various opinions but I shall voice my own. I’m low maintenance and have never worn weave (other than braids) in my life. But what I do know is a bad weave and so does everyone else. Make sure that hair is laid for the gods! If weave is not for you, rock the natural. There are tons of cute natural hairstyles that can be done, have fun!
Now this ends my Do’s and Don’ts for GHOE!
Well if you all don’t know, The Man Repeller is one of those cool blogs that derived its name from wearing a clothing item that would so not attract someone of the opposite sex but you look damn good in it.
The blogger is making her way to DC this Wednesday and I am excited! I wanted to create an outfit she might wear to the event.
We have now come to a time when everyone is holding onto those dollars even tighter with the government shutdown. Me on the other hand has been frugal frannie since I can remember. I am here to give some beauty secrets of my own that can save you money and cut corners here and there.
I went to Ulta and purchased a product that would allow me to arch my eyebrows at home. I have not been to the nail shop in about a month now with starting to arch them myself. This is of course trial and error every time right now. Things you will need to be successful are eyebrow tweezers, an eyebrow brush, and scissors small enough to help cut excess hair from your eyebrows.
I got a kit by Parissa that comes with mini wax strips so that means no messy hot wax. I think this kit is genius. The kit comes with instructions as well as oil to use where you waxed your eyebrows to soothe the irritation. I would suggest doing this at night and not before going out. I did it one day before work, not a good idea. LOL!
Once you get in the groove, it is super easy. I am getting better and better every time and I have saved money.
Some might have seen or heard about this but this is breaking major ground in the fashion world. A lot of people know nothing about stepping or African – American greeks. I also liked how Rick Owens didn’t use supermodels but everyday women.
