Whу Beyoncé, Scarlett Johansson, Victoria Beckham love thеѕе Swiss-made shoes

Posted by Ykzir Dammahum on Thursday, February 28, 2013

“Never question a woman аnd hеr relationship with hеr shoes.” Whоеvеr ѕаid thiѕ wаѕ сеrtаinlу a wiѕе one. Men love thеir cars, women love thеir shoes. So, men, nеvеr аѕk whу women саnnоt dо with juѕt оnе pair оf shoes.

I’ve аlwауѕ bееn a shoe lover—even bеfоrе I developed a love оf bags. I remember, whеn I wаѕ five, еасh timе I wаѕ givеn a nеw pair, I’d make ѕurе tо kеер thеѕе yet-unworn shoes nеxt tо mе in bеd bеfоrе I wеnt tо sleep.

I аlѕо hаvе vеrу fond memories оf playing in mу mother’s shoe closet, waddling аrоund in hеr sandals аnd pumps. Evеn аѕ a teenager, I’d secretly lооk thrоugh hеr closet tо trу оn hеr shoes.

Onе оf thоѕе pairs wаѕ bу a brand named Walter Steiger. Littlе did I knоw thаt I’d оnе day meet thе mаn whо made thоѕе shoes.

Shoe greats

Steiger iѕ a brand founded bу Geneva-based craftsman Walter Steiger Sr. in 1932. Walter Steiger Jr. fоllоwеd in thе footsteps оf hiѕ father, eventually designing fоr Mary Quant аnd collaborating with Helmut Newton, Karl Lagerfeld, Nina Ricci, Chloe, Sonia Rykiel, Kenzo, Alaia аnd Oscar dе lа Renta, аmоng others.

It wаѕ аlѕо Walter Jr. whо brought thе label tо international attention whеn hе opened a Steiger boutique in Paris, fоllоwеd bу оthеrѕ in Nеw York, London аnd Milan.

Steiger belongs tо thе еrа оf shoe greats Roger Vivier, Andrea Pfister аnd Maud Frizon. Thiѕ wаѕ bеfоrе thе timе оf Manolo Blahnik аnd Christian Louboutin.

In 2009, Walter’s twо sons decided tо join thе company аnd injected nеw life intо thе brand. Thе famous Steiger “claw,” a curved heel thаt lооkѕ ԛuitе deadly оn thе feet but iѕ асtuаllу vеrу comfortable—and I саn  attest tо thiѕ аѕ I hаvе walked in thеѕе heels оn thе cobblestone streets оf Milan аnd Paris fоr hours—soon made itѕ wау оntо thе shelves оf thе carefully curated shoe section аt Barneys Nеw York. And it wаѕ thеrе whеrе I ѕаw thе Steiger brand again.

Aftеr hаving mеt Walter аnd gеtting tо knоw hiѕ sons Giulio (who runs thе Paris аnd London operations) аnd Paul (now Nеw York-based), I соuld nоt hеlр but admire thеir apparent rеѕресt fоr еасh other, аnd it’s easy tо ѕее whу thе label iѕ оn thе uр аnd up.

Steiger shoes hаvе ѕеriоuѕ star power today: Royalty аnd celebrities whо hаvе bееn ѕееn wearing thоѕе distinctive claw heels include Princess Charlotte оf Monaco, Lindsay Lohan, Beyoncé, Scarlett Johansson, Kendall Jenner аnd Victoria Beckham.

Collaborations

It wаѕ аlѕо juѕt a fеw seasons back thаt Steiger resumed designer collaborations, thiѕ timе with Akris, аnd Victoria Beckham fоr hеr namesake label. Victoria hаd bееn practically living in hеr Steiger booties called “Oscar” (one оf thе Steiger bestsellers) shortly аftеr giving birth tо hеr daughter Harper. Giulio fondly recounted hоw it wаѕ Victoria hеrѕеlf whо hаd called him tо talk аbоut a роѕѕiblе collaboration, whiсh саmе intо fruition a season later.

It iѕ роѕѕiblе tо collaborate with Steiger fоr уоur оwn custom-designed аnd custom-made shoes. And thаt gоеѕ fоr bоth men (yes, men) аnd women. Fоr bespoke Steiger shoes, thеrе iѕ thе Maison Steiger Bottier in Paris, juѕt steps аwау frоm thе family-owned ready-to-wear boutique аlоng Rue du Faubourg.

In today’s fashion, shoes hаvе dramatically evolved аnd heel height hаѕ continued tо rise. It’s nоt difficult tо find shoes with 6- оr еvеn 7-inch heels. It has, however, bесоmе mоrе difficult tо find уоur true sole mate—shoes thаt wоuld nоt оnlу givе уоu added height but аlѕо рrоvidе comfort fоr уоur feet. Steiger iѕ оnе оf thе fеw labels thаt dо so.

Belts, Scarves And More - Your Guide To Accessories

Posted by Ykzir Dammahum on Wednesday, February 27, 2013

People who don't know about fashion can be confused by a shopping trip. If your shopping trip was a painful experience for you, then you probably need assistance. This article is full of helpful advice on choosing the right fashions whenever you go shopping.

Don't carry a ton of makeup inside your makeup bag. Choose products you really love with a selection of season-specific colors. Think about both night and day uses. Once you open up makeup, it may ruin. Bacteria can build on it, too.

Do you need a new wardrobe? Use a credit card. When you pay it off at the end of the month, you'll be able to look good without going into debt.

Don't let other people tell you what to wear. Style is not limited to being either right or wrong. Everyone must figure out the fashions they want to follow themselves. If anyone attempts to inform you of what you should and should not wear, you should respectfully tell them that their opinion doesn't matter.

Wearing wedged heels in both a sandal and boot is one of the latest fashion trends. Many women like wearing them because it makes them appear taller and can actually make a person look slimmer. When you buy wedged heels, it is crucial that they aren't too thick, as that could present a challenge when trying to walk around in them!

Keep yourself in newer fashions for less by selling or trading the clothes you are bored with. Many Internet classified ad sites or even auctions let you sell your clothing easily, but there are also second-hand stores which you can sell items through as well. You may either receive money back from your items or get store credit.
Holiday-Accessories

Fashion is an area of constant change. Read about the latest trends. There are fashion magazines or sites online that share the current trends. You can always choose items that appeal to your tastes.

Both sexes may experience oily skin and hair due to hormonal imbalances. Your body's hormones can get out of balance when you are suffering stress. If you feel stressed, find ways to relax. This will help get your hormones back to normal and solve your oil problem.

Don't buy something simply because of a great price. If this doesn't work with your body style or it is still a bit out of your budget, it may not be worth it after all. It'll just end up collecting dust in the closet because you won't wear it, which is wasting your money.

When choosing jewelry to accentuate your outfit, keep in mind that less is more. You can have the most beautiful jewelry collection and love every piece, but don't wear them all at the same time. Too much of anything can cancel out the good. Pick out your favorite jewelry and wear it with pride.

Wearing the proper swimsuit is essential. Make sure the suit fits you well and matches your shape and style. If your bust is on the small side, it is essential that your top fits you. A little padding will complement a small bust nicely.

A must-have item in your wardrobe is a dress that can go from daytime wear to nighttime fashion. If you're a busy woman who is always on the go, this one clothing piece is essential to your wardrobe. All you need to do is bring a pair of shoes and some accessories with you and change just those when the evening hours arrive. This will make a whole new look that fits the event.

Be aware of your body type. Fitted clothing can help to accentuate a smaller person's best features. Busty women can draw attention to other areas with fancy skirts or trendy slacks. When you are larger in your hips, a darker bottom should be paired with a light top.

Make lips look fuller by using a simple lip pencil and blending it around the edges with a sponge applicator. Be sure to add a layer of petroleum jelly or gloss. This will give your lips a vibrant look so that they look fuller and more lively. You can make your lips highlighted by picking a shade of eye shadow that accentuates your type of lip shade. Put just a dab on the center of each lip.

If someone critiques how you dress, do not let it get you down. You don't have to dress perfectly. You just have to be comfortable with your clothes and everything will be fine. Ultimately you'll attract plenty of people who love your style.

Always remember that any fashion tip is only as good as the effort you're willing to put in while implementing it. Apply the tips in the article, and you will create a wonderful image for yourself that you can be proud of. You can begin being an always fashionable and confident dresser!

Are you in need of increasing your fashion IQ? If you answered yes, this is the perfect article for you. The following paragraphs are loaded with great fashion tips and advice.

Use up your makeup before throwing out the container. Get the last bit from a tube by squeezing it with a toothpaste tube squeezer. Turn the bottle upside down or on its side to get the most out that you can. You can also take off the tops once the product is near the bottom. Utilize all these cost saving tips to get the most out of your beauty products.

A bit of research online can help you know what to do for all upcoming seasons. By doing some research, you can make sure you're properly dressed for all occasions, regardless of the season.

Restraint when choosing jewelry is essential. You might love your entire jewelry collection, but you should not wear it all. Too much of a good accent can deliver the wrong effect. Try to match your jewelry with your outfit and the season that you are in.

Many women don't consider wearing underwear as a fashion tip. This serves as the basis for your outfit and your level of comfort throughout the day. Choose the best underwear and your best look will follow. Pick out underwear that you feel comfortable wearing.

Subscribe to fashion magazines and newsletter to stay current with the newest fashion trends. When you do that, you'll be ready for every season and you will be first in your social group to have the latest fashions.

Mousse is a great way to volumize your hair, but be careful not to go overboard. A lot of people are starting to revert to the 80s with their hair, but the fact of the matter is that hair back then wasn't that fashionable really.

Adding volume to your hair can actually hurt it and make it become damaged. You should never choose a hairstyle that results in two different textures. Instead of making you look edgy and unique, you will look like you could not decide which style to go with.

Buy some new clothes on credit. As long as it's possible for you to pay back the money you used on your credit cards, use it to buy some clothes to create a new wardrobe.

Never ever purchase a piece of clothing just due to the price being too good to refuse. If you don't need it, and it doesn't look right on you, it's a bad buy no matter how cheap it is. It might end up wasting space in your closet.

Sift through the racks at nearby thrift stores. Whether your style is vintage or modern, don't dismiss the idea of trying thrift stores for great finds. Although you may find plenty of fashion no-nos and outdated items, there are also numerous wardrobe treasures to be found. Until start searching, you won't know where those future favorite articles of clothing are hidden.

Check out the latest trends in fashion online. You can find a lot of information by doing a little research online. You need to do this to get an understanding of the latest fashion trends.

If you're heavy and wish to look slimmer, try wearing a dark or black colored blouse over a dark skirt. These colors disguise your body shape and make bulges less noticeable. For extra comfort, your skirt's waistband should be elastic.

Subscribe to one or more fashion magazines to stay up-to-date on current trends. Use the ideas you see to keep yourself inspired on easy ways to keep your look up to date and fresh.

To keep your clothes looking their best, take proper care of them. Designate a place in your closet to hang clothes that have been worn once but don't require a wash just yet. This system will let you wash things less often, which makes your clothes last longer. Place your wet clothes on hangers and leave them out to air dry if possible. Your clothes will last longer if you do not put them in the dryer.

Handbags compliment outfits; however, if you carry any other bags, ensure that your purse complements them as well. For example, if you carry a briefcase, coordinate your handbag with your briefcase. At most, you should only be carrying two bag kinds at any given time.

As you can see from the advice above, you just need to be smart if you want to project a sense of fashion. This is because you have to use whatever knowledge that you have in order to get people to appreciate what you are wearing. When you start doing that, people will know that you possess a good personal style.

Keeping Up With The Latest Fashion Trends

Posted by Ykzir Dammahum on Sunday, February 24, 2013

You want to dress fashionably and look great no matter how old you are. Dressing up nicely can land you many things in many different situations. There are always new strategies to investigate. For some helpful fashion advice, read on.

Wearing white clothes after Labor Day is actually okay. You can wear white at any time; don't let a date stop you from wearing the color. If you look fabulous in white, wear it any time of the year. No modern fashion concious person cares about this rule.

Check out care instructions on the labels of your clothing to help them keep looking like new. Do not disregard the care label if you are wanting your pieces to last longer. These labels have directions on temperature and washing methods to prolong the life of your clothes.

It's important to look fashionable at all times, and that definitely includes your day at the beach or the pool. It has to flatter the look of your body. Finding the right combination that fits you is key. If your bust is small, choose a suit with some padding.

There is no shame in using a credit card to build on your wardrobe. If you know you will have the funds to pay it, it is better to buy many items at once.

Your wardrobe should fit your personality. Sometimes you may be tempted to wear something because it is trendy, but it is not a clothing item that suits your normal personal style. Instead, allow your personal tastes to work with the trend so you look and feel comfortable. The idea here is to be in charge of your own style instead of trying to morph it to fit another person's style.

Don't forget about matching shoes with the rest of your outfit. Sometimes, it is as simple as matching your shoes to the hue of your belt. This ensures a classic, fashionable look.

Avoid buying something simply based on price alone. No matter how much of a steal it is money wise, if it looks bad on you, don't buy it. It will just sit around unworn, taking up space.

 The little things help to create a great look and style. Some have impeccable taste in clothing and dress themselves well, yet neglect to add accessories and details that pull the look together, such as a nice watch or an elegant necklace. When traveling, use luggage that matches your outfit.

Sometimes less can be more with jewelry. A lot of people think that wearing their tennis bracelet with their necklace, rings and earrings creates a great look. Well, the truth is that it's just too much!

An abundance of gold, for example, may just be too much. Wear your jewelry sparingly for a classy and elegant look.

When wearing shorts, never let your socks show! This is more common for young kids. Be certain you have an air of sophistication and avoid wearing socks with short pants.

Make sure you try on white clothes in bright light. Lots of people wind up with see-through clothing because they fail to get a good look at it first. A white shirt requires a flesh colored bra underneath.

Think about getting a fashion consultant to help you shop now and then. She can teach you about current fashion trends. You should hire a professional to help you with your styling if you are too busy to make yourself look good.

Teasing your hair to add volume should be avoided as it can cause damage and brittleness to your hair. Do not try to create dual textured hair styles. This will make you appear like you don't have a particular style, instead of bringing out your individuality.

Dress to suit your figure. You might not want to wear something like a blouse that's low-cut, but you may be more confident with your legs. Show them off with a modestly short skirt and some stellar high heels, and you've got the recipe for fashion success. Use your assets to your best advantage.

Keep an eye out for the sizes of clothes. Never buy a piece of clothing without first trying it on. Sizes aren't just based on set measurements anymore. They are different depending on the brand. Look at size charts when you purchase clothes online. Also make sure that all of the clothing you buy can be returned.

Don't be afraid of breaking a few fashion rules. There may be a hidden gem of a fashion idea and you won't know unless you give it a shot. Mix and match a variety of colors, fabrics and styles, even when the "rules" suggest not to. The look you create will certainly be a unique one.

An upcoming event is always a great occasion to look your best for. Whether it's a date, wedding, prom, or some other event, you want to be ready. Looking good and feeling confident works well when you incorporate the simple tips and neat little tricks from the article you just read. It's real easy to have some sense of fashion.

Fashionable Tips For The Diva Within You!

Posted by Ykzir Dammahum

Many people feel like they do not know enough about fashion. Fortunately, fashion is easy to understand once you're aware of a few guidelines. Read this article to help you learn how to develop that sense in fashion.

When you're shopping for swimwear, you need to try on a few to get the right fit. A swimsuit should always accent your body perfectly. Just pick something that fits your body properly and that is snug up top and down below! You will also benefit from a little padding.

You can create the illusion of fuller lips without resorting to cosmetic surgery. A light colored pink gloss or shiny finished lipstick can do the trick. This will cause lips to look full. Stay away from darker colors because they cause your lips to appear smaller than they are.

Be sure that your closet has enough space to store your clothing. An overflow of clothes can cause them to be damaged and stretch out, so they won't fit well. Leave some space between the items to ensure they hang correctly.

Dress according to the way your personality is. In many sad cases, individuals try wearing styles that might be trendy, but do not fit their personality. Don't pose. Dress for who you are. Your style can be classic or grunge, but it is your own personal style.

Avoid neglecting little things when you wish to create a complete look. A great accessory, such as a classy belt or necklace, can really finish off an outfit and take it from common to extraordinary. Carry nice luggage when you travel, but make sure your umbrella looks nice too.

The quality of the material that your clothing is made of matters a great deal. You have to read the tag and understand what it says. For example, some materials shrink in the wash or fade quickly. Avoid spending your money on clothes that could fray, shrink or become misshaped.

Avoid excessive hair teasing to prevent damage to your hair. Never give your hair two different textures when styling it. This look will make you look indecisive and silly.

When you drink enough water, your nails and skin will look better. Insufficient water intake is a common cause of nail dryness. This works especially well during the wintertime while the air is both dry and cold. Use shea butter once or twice daily to moisturize your nails. Cotton gloves over your moisturized hands while you sleep is another good option.

No fashionable outfit is complete without great accessories. This may include watches, necklaces, earrings and bracelets. Think about the proper shoes for the outfits you buy. Have a nice hairstyle. You can find out a lot from reading fashion magazines about matching outfits.

Are you out of jeans? Upon entering a store, you probably notice jeans in a variety of cuts, fits and lengths. This can really blow your mind. Stay simple and pick straight leg, boot cut or another traditional cut. They never go out of style and always look great.

While wearing shorts isn't a fashion sin, wearing them with visible socks is something to avoid. This is a look that is appropriate for kindergarten children. Ensure your look is sophisticated, so avoid wearing long, visible socks while wearing shorts at all costs.

One great fashion tip is to get rid of old clothes that you do not wear - preferably to a donation center. This is a free way to help others out.

Utilize your credit card to make a few key purchases for your wardrobe, but don't go overboard; make sure you can afford it. You can start beefing up your clothing selection, but only if you are going to pay off your credit card debt in a timely manner.

When you don't have a lot to spend on clothing, refuse to be embarrassed! If your friends have fashionable items you like, tell them you'll be happy to have it when they don't want it any more. This lets you look great for less.

Put your hair in a simple up-do. During work or school, long hair may be quite the hassle. Put your hair in a bun if you face the stresses and traumas of work so that you do not have to worry about it.

Don't underestimate the power of accessorizing. It doesn't take much to change the whole look of an outfit, all you need to do is accessorize. A carefully chosen bag, belt or scarf can make all the difference between a fashion success or disaster. Think of your outfit as a whole when you're putting it on, and select fashion forward accessories to create the look you want.

By using the advice this article has provided you with, others will compliment your fashion style. Dressing well is a great way to present yourself.
