There are a few ways that can guarantee that you not only invest in pieces that you can get a lot of use out of but pieces that can make your closet more dynamic. Having a closet that is actually functional can help you redefine both your daily life and your future success. If you exercise these very easy to follow steps every time you go shopping, you should have no problem turning a closet that is "blah" into a closet that rocks your world!
True self-expression must have freedom without gendered boundaries. To allow men true freedom, freedom of their senses, we must loosen the knots of gender expression through clothing and fabric and allow men to be who they naturally are.
There are going to be a lot of new, exciting, innovative style trends for both guys and women in 2017! Recently, I was lucky enough to speak with two leading designers from Vancouver - Reuben and Lévi Uwi of U.T.F.L. (Uwi Twins Fashion Label). Their style and clothes are as unique as their story.
This fall, I decided to challenge myself. I set out to wear one black dress the whole month of November, and, in the process, create awareness about how important having the right clothes for inclement weather truly is. Here are five things I've learned from this experiment.
When I downsized into my condo and found myself with one garment rack and one dresser to store my clothing, I realized that some things would have to go. I also realized that I really didn't wear most of my clothes. I just kept cycling through my favorites. I've heard it said that we typically wear 20% of our clothing 80% of the time. So why bother hanging on to one-off's, unworn, or unloved pieces that take up valuable storage space?
Why are most lingerie lines toggling between the comfort and the sexy side, but never mending the two looks? It seems that as much as we would like to show our power and eminent equality in every other aspect of life, when it comes to our bosoms, we still put slinky and attractive into the same category.
There's so much that goes into a bespoke suit -- from the subtleties of a man's posture to the numerous fittings before the suit is even finished -- that it inevitably comes with a much higher price tag; you'd be hard-pressed to find a proper bespoke suit for less than $2,000. They're also made by the tailor (or within his small team) and not shipped off to a factory or overseas, adding to the premium pricing.
What to do when you've got hundreds of pairs of shoes, enough clothes to dress a small army, and your career demands that you move, oh on average, about every three years? And not just to another city, but an entirely foreign country.
The leaves have been the most brilliant shades of scarlet and gold, but now many of them are lifeless and limp, lying in puddles on the street. There are dazzling moments filled with colour and sunshine and in the next instant, everything is grey. Who can keep up? Maybe it's time that we create our own sunshine.
My own hair is short and curly. I haven't had hair past my shoulders for about 20 years. The idea of having Disney princess hair was enchanting but I knew little about the process. How exactly are the extensions attached? How long does it take? How much does it cost? How long do extensions last? Time to do my research!
I love fall fashion and shopping online. The time I save shopping can be spent outdoors or doing fun things, like spending good times with friends and loved ones. Shopping online means you have endless options at your fingertips, so you can really find some fashion gems if you think beyond what you're currently seeing in store windows.
I love fall. Pretty, light, fresh makeup. There are so many options: to go from a touch of tinted moisturizer (when I am going for a hike outdoors) to glamorous holiday party looks! The options at this time of year are fantastic.
Why should a double zero model get to strap on a baby-bump, as though it's a mere accessory like shoes or bracelets, and pose in a maternity clothing campaign?
I tend to spend a little more on a great coat, which I treat as an investment piece. The only glitch in this plan is that after a couple of years, I might get bored of pulling out the same old coat time after time. So, how do you make an old coat new again?
Our skin gets parched when the temperature starts to cool down, and as we spend more time in centrally heated air and wearing woolen clothing.
I adore social media because I am, at heart, a social creature. Meeting and interacting with new people, especially women, is a favorite activity of mine. I thrive on it!
