Comeback color---1980's Electric Blue!!!

1980’s electric blue is making a comeback. Fashion experts say there's a new way to wear it. Electric blue looks best when paired with minimalist accessories. You can't do too much or then you're the bad '80s comeback but if it’s a simple style, cut and pattern, it will work. You wouldn't want to do the handbag, earrings, dress, and eye shadow together. There's been resurgence in metallic look and we have bags in light silver and gray that is a good accent with blue. Delicate silver jewelry and a crisp white handbag looks great, and chartreuse also goes really well with that peppy blue.
One reason it's so popular right now is that the color is surprisingly flattering on just about everyone. It works on so many different skin tones and is beautiful against sun-kissed skin and will make you stand out in a crowd."
The good news is that the trend is here to stay -- at least for the next year or so. In New York, bright blue is going to continue throughout spring next year so just pair that summer dress with high or low boots and you're good for fall. It's one of the best transition things you can do."

Happy IVGLDSW Day!

Today is International Very Good Looking, Damn Smart Woman's Day.

Always remember this motto to live by: Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

Love the idea of beautiful clothes and don’t want to settle for cheaply made stuff but finances are tight. So skip the cheap stuff and go “Vintage”.

You will be astonished that you can buy a beautiful, well made silk blouse for less than off the mall rack and that will open your eyes to the world of Vintage clothing. Once it is may have been a necessity because of the price but will eventually become a passion.And passion will ooze once you see the vintage pieces with elaborate details, richly beautiful fabric textures with great color and cut. You will begin to see beyond a piece of clothing draped on a hanger.

Vintage style - it's become the ultimate fashion statement.
Become a trend-setting expert at mixing the old with the new. Whether you're short of cash or just revel in the idea of finding fashion gems from the past, Vintage chic is every fashion follower's passport to unique style. Vintage is for people who want something different and not just the latest looks plucked straight from the Autumn fashion runways.Face it, anyone can walk down the street, spend some money and get a fairly fashionable look but, why settle? Try for something more. An outfit that suggests hidden depths, imagination, allure. You can renew yourself with breathtaking garments others were naïve enough to let go.

Vintage chic isn't necessarily about tapping into the catwalk's latest looks. "If you know what the trends are, you can shop specifically for those shapes, prints or colors. Take steps today for vintage in the future by holding on to existing pieces in your closet that are favorites, classics or simply hold sentimental value - you'll find that in a few years time, what goes around does indeed come around.I
