shopping tips
Shopping tip 101 Shopping tip One of the best ways to stay focused while shopping is to take a picture with you out of one of your favorite magazines. If you take an image with you, not only will it help you and a sales staff to pull together the look you want, but it will also help you stay focused on what you came to the store for in the first place as well as save money.
Source your magazines-meaning pull out the information that inspires you, put it in a binder and recycle the rest. I started doing this when I was in college and it has been a lot of fun. It also saves time and space.


t-shirt bra
I love womens shoes. I have no idea why I love them as much as I do. It is a true obsession.

All the girls in my family seemed to be afflicted with it, thought some have it more then others.

I thought for the longest it was some weird little oddity that only my family had.

How To Choose A Trench Coat

How to Fit a Trench Coat For Your Body Type

To fit a trench coat, make sure it doesn’t pull across your breasts when it is buttoned.

Put your arms to your side and slightly arch your back. Now, shrug your shoulders.

Bring your arms up to shoulder height and touch your hands together in front of your body.

Bend down and pick up something, like your handbag. If it feels comfortable during these movements, then it fits correctly.Keep in mind that you don't need to do gymnastics to confirm the coat fits.
Chances are you won’t be working out in your trench coat.

If you feel the overwhelming urge to get some exercise in, it’s probably a good idea to wear active wear instead.

If you're petite, look for a coat that isn't too long and whose collar isn't overly large. 

It's really easy to look like a turtle with an overly large collar when your height is average, but when you are a petite size, even more so.

Tall women should look for a coat that is long enough in both the arms and length. Make sure it fits in these areas. Generally, a full-length sleeve should go to your first knuckle.

How To Choose

Choose a color that will flatter your skin tone. Try on several different coats in different colors.

Keep in mind that department stores don't always have the most flattering lights. The right color should make your face glow with health.

To be practical, buy a neutral color like black or tan. A neutral color for your skin tone might be plum or olive.

As long as it goes with the rest of your wardrobe,choose a color with which you resonate.

If you're top heavy, you will find raglan or dolman sleeves allow you more room to move.

Top heavy women look best in a single-breasted coat rather than a double-breasted one.

An inset shoulder seam should land on or slightly past where your natural shoulder ends. Make sure the lapels lay flat.

If they pucker or bow out, it is either too small or the lapels are cut too low for your body type.

Trench Coat


Thomas Burberry invented the first trench coat in 1901.

It was designed initially for British officers during the first world war.

In 1914 it was redesigned to have D-rings and shoulder loops (which held epaulettes).

These changes came after the coats had been used in the trenches (thus the name, "trench coat”).

Epaulettes were added to hold metals of rank and D-rings added for grenades and other gear.

More then a hundred years after being designed initially for rain and wind, people consider it a wardrobe staple.

Burberry, along with a plethora of other brands, design and redesign the trench coat every year.

Burberrys have been worn by the members of royal families all over the world. They have graced the silver screen and have been donned by the rich and famous.
