I Think I'm Getting Over It Now.

Thanks to everyone who left me some very nice comments under the post about my "trim." You ladies rock! I did a video to show everyone how I'm adjusting to being APL again. It's not too bad...all the time. It's a nice haircut (as many of you lovingly pointed out), which is the only reason why I'm doing okay.

I looked at pics of myself last year, and my hair is at exactly the same point it was a year ago. SIGH. But I'm going to stay positive--you all have been very encouraging. Thank you! Anyway...peep the vid below.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2011

Fashion Trends: Women, Kid - Designer Fashion Shoes




The fashion trend is generally set by leading design houses like Chanel, Christian Dior, Dolce and Gabbana, Fendi, Gucci and Louis Vuitton. The sophisticated fashion dress styles by the Parisian and Italian fashion house lead the haute couture of the world.

Man Fashion

A man in the fashion world has a lot going for him. A man in fashion clothing can choose from a wide range of men's fashion apparel, ranging from shorts, Cargos, Jeans and tailored suits. When Levi-Strauss revolutionized jeans, he would not have thought they would continue to rule the man fashion world even into the new millennium. A man can choose from fashion in corporate wear as well as summer fashion wear. Man fashion clothing can also extend to fashion shoes, fashion accessory like sunglasses, bags, belts and man swim wear.

Woman Fashion /Women's Fashion

Women's fashion clothing forms the major part of the fashion designing industry. Women fashion extends to formal wear, lounge wear, lingerie and fashion swim wear. Can you discuss women's fashion without mentioning fashion accessory items? Silk, linen, wool, tweed, cotton and other synthetic blends are used in women's fashion apparel. Hand embroidery, antique buttons and elegant cut help add the interesting details to women's fashion product. Pretty pastels, sequined, glamorous as well as the ever-popular little black dress are essential items in a woman with fashion and style. Interesting necklines, pretty fabrics and overall pattern contribute to women's fashion statements. A fashion dress is indeed a piece of art. A woman with fashion and taste will either buy a designer -inspired fashion dress or pick women's fashion labels off the shelf.

Kid Fashion

The kid fashion segment is also a popular one. Many kids would also like to be seen in kid fashion clothes, fashion shoes and bags. There are many kid fashion design houses involved exclusively in the creation of fashion clothing for kids. Kid fashion keeps in mind the comfort level as well as playful activities of the child. Kid fashion clothes are in materials like cotton, denim, twill and linen. Colorful cartoon characters and themes are used in kid fashion clothes. Kid fashion also extends to kid fashion shoes that are comfortable and safe for growing feet.

Fashions may come and go. But the truly fashionable person will be able to adapt the current fashion trend apparel to oneself and create a unique fashion dress for themselves.

For starters, read following tips on fashion for women in their 30's. Also check fashion for women over 40.



Tips on Fashion for Women in their 30's



Fashion for women over 30 is a reflection of their role as a mother and a career woman. Their fashion trend is not influenced by very glamorous clothing apt for 20's, nor is it too mature. Fashion for 30's is all about dressing stylishly, yet not provocatively. It is important not to cross that thin line between glamor and sleaze. While young women in their 20's can get away with cheap fashion, women in their 30's cannot afford to wear tacky clothes at any cost. No matter if you are a stay at home mom or a CEO, you have to be elegant and extremely well dressed under all circumstances. Given below are some fashion tips for women in their 30's.



Clothes

Women's clothing for this age group should be comfortable to wear, hassle free and extremely easy to clean. Since, you will most likely have small children to care for, you cannot afford to take too long to dress up. Although, the choice of clothes will be influenced by your career, it is important that you have strict bifurcation, regarding what to wear at work and what to wear for outings. If you do not have a dress code at office, wear formal pants or A-line skirts that end below knees. Wear blouses in pastel colors like peach, baby blue or even bright colors like green, turquoise etc. Avoid wearing extremely bold patterns on the blouse, or low cut dresses at work. For casual affairs, you can wear long skirts in flowing fabric teamed with a simple blouse or cotton kapris with a bright T-shirt. Floral prints are a great option, if you wish to wear something fresh and youthful. Summer dresses with decent necklines are apt for afternoon dos. For evening parties, choose cocktail dresses that will accentuate your figure. If you have a figure to flaunt, you may go for strapless dresses with plunging necklines. In the end, use your common sense and wear clothes that are appropriate for the occasion and your body type.

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_twYmnhXVfP4/TRch7tz7n0I/AAAAAAAAMec/7qsycdGijcA/s1600/col5.jpg

For the seconds collection 'Dust', bronze and silver metals enshrine crystal stones of Black Tourmaline, Turquoise and Aquamarine across a range of rings, cuffs, earrings, charms and neck pieces. The collection visits the iconography of ancient Egypt and the evolving aesthetic, mood and music of pop deity David Bowie. Inspiration are derived directly from icon- an image of a young Bowie dressed as a sphinx in 1969 by photographer Brian Ward, the tabled story of how the colour of one eye was changed when he was hit in the eye by a hand with a heavy ring, his alleged fascination with Egyptology, aspects of the film 'Labyrinth', and lyrics from the song ' Rebel Rebel'. The occult symbolism of eye motifs, hieroglyphics, pyramids, and crystal balls transcend and unexpectedly combine with the candid nature of pop. Two short films featuring Bambi Northwood-Blyth and directed by Fiona McGee, encapsulate the mood and spirit of the collection.

METALLIC SNAKESKIN STRAPPY SANDALS

If you buy one version, then you will not rest until you have the other! Metallic snakeskin for day or velvet and leather for date? The placement of the cut-outs on the foot is really so pretty, please use the rotate button to see and then the zoom button to see the relationship between the leather and the velvet. The padded footbed adds additional comfort and adds at least another hour on the dance floor. The leather sole has painted and beveled edges and the shoe fits true to size.

BRAIDED METALLIC FLAT SANDALS

This is the editor's favorite and designer pick: the super-flat metallic goddess sandal has the most romantic overall feel. The layered braid looks like it could be seen in an oil painting at the louvre. The leather sole has beveled and painted edges and the dainty side buckle adds charm. Wear this with everything from a long evening dress to slim white pants. Fits true to size. 100% METALLIC LEATHER

this look makes me miss Fall. I love the colored leather and tribal print.

SHE CUT MY HAIR


Okay Thursday night, I straightened my hair. Friday I was very excited to go and get my trim. The lady who did my last trim/cut my layers was doing someone else's hair, so I sat in another lady's chair. I told her EXACTLY what I wanted (twice)...

"I need a 1/4" trim, and please keep the V-shape of my layers in the back."

"Alright" was her reply.

Then she made the first cut and showed me what she removed--it was 1/4" so I let her finish.

It all happened so fast, but somehow I ended up with 3" off my hair and a U-shape (not a V) in the back.

I was horrified.

I looked completely different than I did when I went in there! It was terrible. I never thought I'd be one of those girls who cried at the salon, but I did cry (in my car). I couldn't even drive. I was very upset because that was MONTHS of retention down the drain.

If I was trying to be APL, then I'd be 100% happy with the cut. It's a good haircut. But that's NOT what I wanted!!! I went from being an inch away from BSL to being APL...again. It sucks, and while I'm trying to get used to it, when I see girls with hair the same length mine was, I can't help but be a little bit bitter.

Well at least my ends are super healthy? I should be BSL in no time. It's kinda comforting knowing my hair will grow back, but I can't help but feel like the last year has been a big waste of time.
