I’m no fashionista (never have never will be) and I’m running dry on fashion issues. Someone told me that “women stuff’ should include fashion. That would be ideal but heck! If I can’t even look pulled together all the time, how can I expect to tell anyone else how to do so right? I think I’ll stick to beauty stuff 😀
But here’s 2 things I picked up recently fashion-wise that I thought might help everyone 🙂
Tip #1 : Belt up your loose dresses and get a brand new dress!
I have this lovely navy blue shift dress that I bought back when I was larger. Its a little dressy and resembles a cheongsam but isn’t. I liked it but recently, I took it out to wear and found it hanging loose on me. I looked frumpy. Awful!
On a whim, I picked up one of my waist cincher belts and slipped it around my waist. Voila! It worked a treat. I now have a “new” dress 🙂 I’ve since done the same to a couple more old shift dresses (works best with shift dresses) and shirts.
Tip #2 : Add cleavage or transform your bra to a racerback bra
Ok this one needs a little gadget. A paperclip will not work. A clothes peg might but it’ll look unsightly 😛 Here’s the gadget in question – a simple plastic piece called the Cleavage Control Clip.
Hook your bra straps around it and what this little thing will do is to pull your bra in and up so your boobs sit up more and thus gives the appearance of a cleavage. It works to a degree. If you are more well endowed then you will likely have a more dramatic effect in the cleavage department. Will it help you go up a bra size as it claims? Not for me as I am not well endowed to start with so what it gives me is a perkier silhouette. In any event, bra cup size depends on what you have to put IN it not how you pull it about 😛
What I like this for also is to hold my bra straps so they don’t fall down (happens sometimes even if the bra fits) or when I wear a racer back tank top. I don’t enjoy wearing a strapless bra for long hours and I don’t have a convertible bra yet. So this gadget helps.
I don’t recommend you use it with your expensive bras – all that stretching of the bra strap can spoil the elastic. But otherwise, it works. Get your Cleavage Control Clip from supermodel-secrets.blogspot.com for RM12/pack of 3 (free shipping by Pos Ekspres in Malaysia) or just click here for more details. They also sell Bumpits which add volume to hair but that did not work for me.
That’s it. 2 simple fashion tips from the non fashionista 😀
