Buying a Handbag

Style

The different types of styles are in vogue. You should choose the style according to the requirements. A college girl may find various zips in a handbag useful for keeping make up products, tissues and lunch in separate zips whereas office going girl would not like that much zips as it can be cumbersome to find the things at the right time.

Worth or not?

There are handbags which are costly and some cheap. But it is imperative upon the person buying to consider the worth of the product. The cost you are paying should be equivalent to the handbag you are purchasing.

Size

The size of the handbag is determined on the basis of usage of the handbag. The handbags can be big and can be relatively small in size. It depends upon the type of use, it will be used for. If you want a number of essentials to be kept then the size should be big but in case you want to keep it for party purposes then it should be small or a clutch will suit you.

Quality

The quality is determined by the material used in making the product. All the good brands use a product which is worth going on for a long time. Usage of artificial and fake material should be avoided. Proper knowledge of understanding the fairness of material is also necessary, otherwise you can be cheated by the vendor. Explore the opportunities and try looking for brands which are giving you the worth of your money. There are some sites that are dedicated to such researches.

Create the Perfect Outfit

First of all, you should make sure you have the basics when it comes to articles of clothing. When shopping, you should make sure that you have several different styles of jeans. There are many styles that include boot-cut, flare, skinny jeans, and have a different color wash. Jeans are the first thing you need in a wardrobe and is an essential to any outfit. Make sure that you buy the style of jeans that is the most comfortable for you, and that you will be the most confident wearing.

After you have a couple pairs of your favorite jeans, you need to also buy a couple pairs of neutral colored pants. These are pants that you will be able to pair with anything for a special or fancy occasion, whether it is a job interview or a date.

Lastly, for pants wise, you need a couple casual skirts of different styles and patterns that can be essential for either a formal or informal setting. Skirts are one of those pieces of clothing that you can throw on with a cute tank top, or blouse and makes a perfect outfit in seconds.

Moving onto tops, in my closet I have a section of plain t-shirts. These t-shirts are awesome to wear if you are going to put on a cardigan and run to the store, or you have a statement necklace that you are just dying to wear. These t-shirts are great since they come in different styles like v-neck, or scoop neck, and can easily be extremely casual with a pair of jeans, or dressed up for a special occasion.

Next are sweaters! Sweaters are such a good investment. Sweaters can be expensive depending on where you shop, but they are so worth it. Especially in the winter months, throwing on leggings and sweater is a comfy chic look that will keeping you looking and feeling great. Sweaters can also be paired with jeans and cute booties for a more put-together look. Sweaters are a one of those articles of clothing that can be more eye-catching and of brighter colors since they aren’t usually over accessorized.

Last, but definitely not least, cardigans, jackets, and hoodies. I live in these. Honestly, if I am just lounging around the house or running errands, I will always be wearing a cardigan or hoodie. Hoodies are usually neutral colors since they accent the undershirt, but they can really dress up, or be worn in the colder months to still showcase the tank or t-shirt you have on underneath. They are warm, and so comfortable, but also makes it look like you spent hours getting ready.

After you have all the essentials, it is important to organize your wardrobe and make sure you have everything put together and where you want it. You also want to make sure that you can find what you are looking for, when you want to wear it. I used to always have a problem finding the exact shirt that I wanted to wear in my closet. Since I reorganized everything, I now have no problem knowing where all of my clothes are.

After finding the essential articles of clothing that you need, there is another step. It’s time to accessorize! Accessorizing is the most fun part of creating an outfit. Go out to Francesca’s or target, and pick out belts, earrings, simple and statement necklaces, scarfs, or sunglasses to really make your outfit stand out. Adding accessories is such an easy way to add a little oomph to your outfit and make people notice you. When choosing accessories, try to find pieces that will go with everything, so you can mix and match them with different outfits. Choose gold and silver pieces, and accessories that differ in size and pattern.

Now it’s time to put the outfits together. Once you have all the things listed above, the time comes to putting the outfits together!

First thing to do when putting an outfit together is to play with patterns. Patterns are always something people stray away from because they don’t know if mixing patterns is okay. Of course it is! Mixing patterns is something that will make your outfit stand out among the rest. It’s important to use patterns to your advantage. Patterns can help hide problem areas or accentuate others. If you love your upper body want to draw attention to it, wear a bright colored top, and neutral patterned pant to draw attention away from your lower body, and up to the bright top.

Another thing is to layer. Layers are a great way to showcase your style and can be helpful depending on the weather. Layers allow you to show off your body in a way that also shows off your wardrobe. I love to later my clothes because you can wear a vest, or cardigan that can easily to taken off to change your style right then and there.

Put away those heavy costumes and boots

Make sure that the bag you carry to the office or the club is suitably light. Keep enough copies of the underclothing to facilitate a daily change. Perfumes and roll-ons also need be those airy types that speak the language of the winds and the sails.

Today, you have thousands of choices when it comes to perfumes and colognes. These scents are also readily available over the Internet. To this end, your favorite fragrance is only a click away. Buying perfumes and scents online is easy and convenient. However, to choose the best scent, you must arm yourself with the right information on various scents and their attributes. This guide breaks it all down for you. This way, you can buy a perfume confidently online without smelling it first. To build your buying confidence, start by learning about various fragrances and notes.

What exactly are fragrance notes?

Fragrances are mainly created using three layers of scents. This trinity of notes work together seamlessly and they are; the top note, the middle note and the base note. Every layer of note serves a distinct purpose and below is an explanation on the same.

Top notes

As alluded to above, the topmost scents are perceived first and they are the top notes. They are normally strong scents which evaporate quickly owing to their volatile nature. These notes are commonly described as sharp, strong, fresh and assertive. Some of the most common top notes to find in perfumes and fragrances are ginger and citrus scents.

Middle notes

Once the cover or top notes have evaporated or dissipated, you will smell the middle notes. These scents are therefore seen as the body or the heart of the fragrance. They are also known as heart notes. They are used to mask the base notes which will be highlighted below. After the fragrance has been applied, you will find that middle notes may take 2 minutes to an hour to appear. Rose and lavender scents are the most common middle notes of many fragrances.

Base notes

These notes are known to form the depth of any perfume. After the first two notes can no longer be perceived, the base notes hold the compounds together. These deep scents are usually perceived after 30 minutes because they are heavy in nature. Scents extracted from plant resins, musk and vetiver are some of the top examples of base notes used to create fragrances.

Different kinds of scents and their perfume strengths

Scents will carry different depths and perfume strengths. You may choose a very strong scent or a light one depending on your preference. Below is an overview and classification of various scents to find online.

The ultimate guide to buying perfumes and fragrances online

The guide on scents and notes provided above will help you decide what suits you. In this respect, you want to choose a fragrance at an online store that works for you. If you want to try out new scents, use the information above to land on the most preferred scent. From floral to oriental and citrus, there are so many options available online.

2. Always shop from a trusted online seller

Not all online shops will sell you high quality products. In light of this, you have to be very careful about the platform you use. Some manufacturers will sell their scents directly to you over the Internet. However, many online shops will carry products from an assortment of manufacturers. Read reviews and see what others say about the online retailer. Some due diligence will go a long way in choosing the best shop.

3. Take advantage of sample programs

Yes, there are companies that allow you to smell the perfumes and fragrances first, before buying them online. These programs will see you receive a few samples of the scents available or those you are interested in. Therefore, if you like to shop with the traditional comforts of testing the product first, you can do so before buying perfumes online. Just search for sample programs in your chosen location or area. You really have nothing to lose this way.

4. Consider your budget

Perfumes and fragrances can fit into an array of budgets. Cheaper scents do not necessarily imply low quality. However, some very poor quality scents are sold at a throw-away price by some online shops. Therefore, know the budget you are working with. Then, match your desired product without compromising the quality. If you prefer designer scents, you will definitely have to part with more money. Avoid replicas or counterfeit designer brands. Instead, choose niche brands that have affordable products of the right quality.

5. Get all the fragrance information before buying

As hinted above, you must always know the notes used to create the scent you want. Go a step further to learn about all the ingredients used. Information on application of scents is also crucial. For example, learn about the best summer scents or scents for spring. Look at the product packaging and even branding. All these elements must inform and appeal to you accordingly. Know how to use the scent as well and what to expect with the fragrances therein. An online seller who does not provide comprehensive information in this respect will be doing you a disservice.

Modern Day Suit

Suiting was first commercialised on Savile Row, the oldest and most famous of all tailoring precincts in the world. Tailors started doing business there around 1803. With Henry Poole credited for creating the very first dinner suit. It later became known as the Tuxedo, named after Tuxedo Park in New York State, an American Indian term meaning moving water. Kings, Princes wealthy industrialists, Hollywood movie stars and rock music stars carved a path to Savile Row spending millions of dollars on luxurious suits made from the finest Australian Marino Wool. In the early 60’s Tommy Nutter opened for business in the early 60’s financially backed by Cilla Black. He became famous for reinventing Savile Row. The first to have open window displays which caused some controversy, this practise was considered brash by old school tailor traditionalists who generally worked behind closed doors. Nutter dressed the Beatles for the famous Abbey Road album cover. Other clients include Mick Jagger, Bianca Jagger and Elton John.

Soon after Spencer Tracey passed away his long-time partner and confidant Catherine Hepburn travelled to Savile Row to pay a visit to the tailor that made Tracey’s suits. She ordered a pair of tailor made denim jeans and unintentionally gave birth to the dress jean trend of the 70s. Based on this innovation Richard James another contemporary of Savile Row tailored suits made of selvage Denim woven in Japan.

Renowned Italian woollen mill and suit maker Zegna have been buying the best super fine Marino wool from Australia since 1910. Apart from their ready-made off the peg apparel, they receive 60 to 80 special orders a year for suits that will set you back $34,000. Zegna are carrying on the Savile Row tradition using the finest quality cloth available.

The demand for bespoke suiting has declined dramatically over the past three decades. The range of cuts and price point available in department stores is a major contributor to the decline in sales on Savile Row, with many tailoring firms having to downsize and tap into the mainstream ready-made market. Now one can purchase an off the peg Italian made suit in super fine Marino wool for under $2,000.

Vintage VS Modern Timepieces

Persistence-
Reliability is the first thing to consider while you hunt for the right watch. Vintage watches are precious and they require a lot of maintenance too. As much as you love the idea of having a timeless piece in your hand, you will not want to keep spending more amount in getting it repaired every now and then. Vintage pieces are not as reliable as the modern watches.

If you are looking for something that costs you less in maintenance then your straightforward choice should be the modern watches. The contemporary watches are built with latest technology that is far more durable and reliable than the olden watches. Most of these watches require the replacement of the batteries whereas the other timepieces need routine parts replacement. So vintage watches don’t win the battle here.

Styling-
The whole purpose of buying a watch is to style your over all look. That is why it is the prime area of focus when you hunt for the watch. Selecting a modern watch or a vintage timepiece will reflect your personal style. While choosing a watch, not only your taste matters but also the kind of collection you already own, plays a crucial role.

If you find yourself completely drawn towards the vintage and antique stores then I guess the selection is quite apparent. However, the vintage timepiece must be serviced before you finally pick it up from a store. But if you want to buy something less complicated then modern watches are available profusely in impeccable designs and concepts to win over your fancy.

Features-
Lastly, the features are hugely significantly when it comes down on buying a perfect timepiece. Coherent features, clear screening, and shock and water resistance, these are some of the obligatory features that buyers require in their wrist watches. The timepieces that are from beyond the 50’s is not expected to deliver all such features.

Vintage watches are mere eye candies and must not be kept closer to the water. They can give you real hard time if exposed to water or even moist environment. This can become competitive on the daily basis. Also, it is not wise to expect any automatic functioning in vintage pieces. They have to be manually winded. Whereas the modern watch offers all the innovative features for futuristic wearing.
