Evening Dresses

    Buying Lovely Evening Dresses at Affordable Prices

    Evening DressesOne of the most important and vital decisions you will face at some point in your life is choosing the ideal evening dress. The actual process of shopping can be a lovely and challenging adventure. Amidst the overall overwhelming task of shopping for something special, a woman might have to deal with stressful conditions.Evening dresses can be used at proms, at receptions, at special nights out or at weddings. Evening dresses are usually purchased before choosing any complementing apparel. Therefore the choice should be the result of thorough and serious consideration.

    If you are on a budget or money is an issue, you can benefit from the numerous evening dress sale events that take place all year long. They are usually held a few times a year, mostly at the end of every season. They are events at which major or smaller manufacturers and retail stores offer gowns and evening dresses to create more space for the new collection and inventory. Prices are usually very affordable and reasonable, as the discounts are huge. There are impressive deals to be found even if you opt for designer evening dresses. In these cases, some of the most renowned and elegant fashion houses offer their clothes and dresses up to half the price.

    simple evening gownIn order to get the best possible selection, you need to get information on where the event is taking place. Try to acquire some information on the particular procedures and details regarding the event. Keep in mind that most major shops have women lined up outside for many hours waiting to get as many great deals as they can. Smaller or local stores feature smaller selections and hold the event for a few days or even a week.

    Whether you are buying a simple evening gown or an expensive dress, the selection criteria are the same. You need to keep the theme in mind. Is it a particular formal occasion, or something you may need at some point and you want to be prepared? Narrow down your options so as to concentrate on the evening dresses that bring out and designate your beauty and style. Keep an open mind, though. Even if you go online and do an initial research you might not find the exact same cuts and dresses you had bookmarked.

    Sample Evening DressesIf going to a sample evening dress event or a store with a fixed idea, you might leave empty handed. Do not waste valuable time on unflattering designs and styles, especially since time is usually limited and stores tend to be rather hectic. Be prepared, but also flexible. You might come across a versatile dress that could be used on different occasions, allowing you to be very well dressed and very beautiful.

    Consider your body type, choose something that makes you look nice and sexy, and why not voluptuous and curvy if that is your style. Evening dresses are supposed to be the focal point of a woman's wardrobe, because they are feminine, special and intriguing. ( C A)

Mens Skin Care: Protect Your Skin During Winter

    During Summer time, life is more simpler, all you need is sunscreen and sun lotion. But during winter months, this is the time of year when life becomes a little less comfortable and winter related skin issues will bothering some of us.

    Winter weather is harsher on your skin then summer weather for several reasons:

    The air is dryer in the winter than in the summer. This causes your natural body oils to evaporate faster leaving you more vulnerable to the drying effects. I am sure you are most likely sweating less in the winter than you do in the summer. Perspiration brings more of your skin oils to the surface and helps to clean out your pores. This promotes healthier skin and tends to refresh your skin's protective coating. I am sure most of you are less active in the winter, so naturally we sweat less. :)

    The cold winter air tends to constrict the skin making it tighter and somewhat less porous. This can hamper our skins natural oil production to some degree. You know you've got it when your skin begins to feel tighter and you get that annoying prickly itch. When severe, your skin can crack and the condition becomes downright painful. This can be aggravated even more if your work or play puts you outdoors in the cold for long periods. If you find yourself in this situation,

Prom Dresses 2010

    What is the Difference Between a Junior and Senior Prom Gown?

    Prom Dresses 2010Whether you are going to the junior or senior prom dresses 2010, the start of a new year usually begins the mad dash to begin planning for this favorite high school event. As you are in the midst of your planning and shopping, you're likely to ask yourself this one question: What's the difference between a junior prom dress and senior prom dress? Let's talk about that now!

    Junior prom dresses 2010: Although they are both fun and important events in your high school career, generally speaking - the junior prom is a less formal event. Gowns for this dance are typically shorter, more trendy and a lot cheaper than you would spend on your senior prom gown. These dresses are especially designed for girls between the ages of fourteen to seventeen years old, so they also tend to be more modest and age appropriate. In many ways, this gown is going to be more along the lines of a cocktail dress than a formal event dress. Most retailers and dress designers have special sections just for junior prom dresses, and as you browse them - you will notice that there is an obvious difference between the styles, cuts, shapes and lengths of them. Because the junior prom is just one year away from the senior prom, try not to overspend. The dress you buy for the junior dance can also be worn to your homecoming dance during your senior year.

    Senior prom dresses 2010Senior prom dresses 2010: The senior prom is the final major dance of your high school career, and apart from your high school graduation, it will be the most memorable event as well. People tend to spend more money on the twelfth grade prom than any other event during the four years of high school. Senior prom gowns are typically more formal than their junior prom counterparts. Most teen girls will opt for longer gowns that are fitted, sophisticated and elegant. While a junior dance dress can usually be worn to other semi-formal events, you will likely only wear your senior dance dress one time. This dance is like the equivalent to a Hollywood red carpet event, so finding the most stylish and glamorous gown is extremely important.

Formal Evening Dress

    Tips to Pick the Right One

    Formal Evening DressIt may have been that in the past you only wore a (hopefully) cheap short formal evening dress to cocktail parties. In recent years that trend has undergone a noticeable shift.. These days you see short formal evening dress at pretty much any social event, proms and homecoming dances included. You see more of them all the time and there is a vast selection of short dresses obtainable at literally all price levels.

    The favored materials for formal evening dress are taffeta, chiffon, satin and silk, among others. Sleeker fabrics lend themselves to sexier looks, while fabrics like chiffon and taffeta, lighter in feel and structure, will give fun and flirty styles.

    Keep the shape of your body in mind when choosing a cheap formal evening dress. While there are uncounted numbers of gorgeous dresses offered for any body type, not every type of dress works for every type of body. Dresses that are too tight or too loose don't look becoming on anybody, be they full figured or skinny. Any dress should show your body as beautiful, no matter the size you use; it should show off your femininity without revealing it all.

    designer dressRemember less may be more, and I don't mean less material, but rather trying less hard to impress. The most expensive designer dress will fall flat on a woman that feels awkward in it, while a simple dress worn naturally by a woman with confidence is dazzling anytime. An uncomfortable dress not only ruins your evening, it usually isn't flattering on you either, since your confidence suffers great set backs when you feel awkward and self conscious. So being able to move freely in your formal evening dress and feeling comfortable in it is very important.

    If you want to know what styles and colors look best on you, you could follow this suggestion. At a mall, try on cheap formal evening dress in different styles, lengths and colors. To know what a dress really looks like on you, try this: In the mirror you don't see all angles. Take a friend along to take a few photos of you in a dress you like with your cell phone from several angles like front, back and side view. Don't look at the photos yet, but rather try on several quite different models.

    After you've tried on a variety of formal evening dress that you liked and have taken pictures of yourself in them, stop for a moment and have a look at the photos. Now you can make a decision which one looks best on you, style, fit and color, all of it. At this point you have several choices: you can buy the dress at the store or you can shop around some more to see if you can't find a comparable dress at a bargain price somewhere else (this is also a good way to be able to choose styles on the internet, since you'll know what will look good on you).

Girls Shoes

    Trends Girls Shoes

    Girls ShoesAny parent or guardian knows what a challenge it can be to satisfy the needs and wants of young girls, especially when it comes to what they wear. Fashion is so very important at this stage, and keeping up with the latest trends will stymie even the most creative and committed parent or guardian. Girls shoes are a big part of this undertaking. Practicality does not need to take a second seat to style, however, since makers of girls shoes understand how hard it can be to keep those young ladies happy while satisfying the budgetary considerations of the ones who will be paying the tab.

    This challenge really begins in the toddler ages. Even though infant girls may not be fully aware of just how their appearance is being presented to the public, the need to show up in attractive footwear is just as important at this point as it ever will be. Luckily, makers of girls shoes know this, and they provide a wide selection of shoes for the very young ones that will protect those fragile feet while looking good.

    Girls ShoesParents and guardians have so many choices available to them in girls shoes for toddlers. There are athletic shoes, boots, clogs, denim shoes, sandals, and skate shoes. There are a variety of casual and dress shoes to choose from as well. Mary Janes, patent leather shoes, slip-ons, and t-straps are available in all toddler sizes. There are of course many styles of booties and easy-to-wear shoes for infant girls that are designed with the parent or guardian in mind, while at the same time staying in touch with the latest fashion trends.

    As the girls get a little older, they become even more aware of their look. This means that even though they are out playing, they will still want to look their very best. Makers of girls shoes are aware of this, and they offer so many different shoes that can stand up to the wear and tear of any active young girl's daily life. Athletic shoes alone can make up a big part of a young girls wardrobe, yet the need for a sense of style and color choices is still a big part of what they want.

    DC Shoes is one maker of girls shoes who has a grasp on the latest styles in athletic shoes. They offer many choices for girls starting with the very youngest ladies. Sneakers and skate shoes in different colors and materials can match any outfit while being able to hold up to the activities that are so important in girls shoes. Heely's, Saucony, Geox, and Stride Rite also offer many good choices in athletic girls shoes, from the pristine all-white style to the multi-colored look that is so very popular.

Man Fashion Tips: All About Mens Shirts

    Nothing new to men's shirts, this words is around us for many years, but whether you’re walking into a department store, ordering online, or looking through a catalog, it can be confusing to figure out exactly what you need or why you need it. There are many occasions and settings, which often call for a specific dress code. So I thought of sharing with some of you a quick guide on various occasions and appropriate shirt and style options available, from men’s t-shirts to men’s dress shirts, and everything in between.

    Men's Casual – An everyday look, the emphasis is style and comfort. Casual men’s t-shirts can be as simple as a plain white or boldly colored t-shirt or they can be a statement piece, with logos and embellishments, which can be paired with blazers and jean jackets and worn to night clubs and trendy parties. This style gives the most options as men’s t-shirts can worn, which includes polo shirts, golf shirts, fitted t-shirts, or more ornate or fashionable button-down shirts. Either a casual cotton t-shirt can be worn or a men’s dress shirt can be worn in a more casual manner, such as rolling the sleeves or pushing them up to the ¾ length. There are a variety of colors, logos, styles and fabrics for this dress code and offers the most liberty at creating your own personal style and allows the most self-expression. Prices can be as diverse as style, with a plain men’s t-shirt starting under $2 and designer 28t-shirts that cost between $122.00-$790.00.

    Men's Dressy Casual - Men’s t-shirts should be avoided. The best shirt for this dress code can be a button-down men’s shirt, either long or short-sleeve and paired with a sports coat or blazer. Though it doesn’t offer much variety, you have more freedom with color choice, fabrics and an open-collared shirt is appropriate. Also, this means no tie should be worn, as it would be formal. Prices can be as low as $7.95 and upwards of $700.00 and the same price range for dressy casual men’s dress shirts goes for informal, business casual and traditional business men’s shirts.

    • Informal/Semi-Formal/Cocktail - The dress code is less formal and calls for a dark suit, and a tie is not required. The men’s shirts best suited to this dress code are crisp, dress shirts that are long or short-sleeve. Since a tie is not needed, if one is worn it can be more bold than with a business attire. This kind of attire is perfect for cocktail parties, evening weddings or weddings that don’t state otherwise, or special events. It also lends itself well to museum openings and art galleries, or first dates and holiday parties.

    Men's Business Casual - This style is the most lax of all business attire and can include a range of shirts from knitted golf shirts and polo shirts to men’s dress shirts. The shirt should be tucked in and worn with a simple leather belt. Since the attire is still business, leather shoes should be worn, though you’re not limited to lace-up shoes or simply black or brown. The color palette is more varied and vibrant. This offers more choices of what can be paired with the men’s shirt, such as cardigans, sports coats or knit sweaters. Dressy men’s long-sleeve button down shirts can also be included in this style. Polo shirts can cost $49.99-$128.00 for designer labels or department store brands. Cheaper brands cost $10-$15.

    • Traditional Business - The color palette should be muted or dark earth tones; generally, navy blue, black, dark brown, gray and sandstone are the best options. This attire calls for dress shirts for men that are less formal, so a button-down shirt with a Lay-down collar is sufficient. The shirt color should be white, off-white or a muted complement to the suit. Other options include a simple vertical pinstripe pattern.

    • Business Formal-The appropriate men’s shirt is a white shirt in the French-cuff style, and the shirt should be fastened with cuff links. The suit is dark and tailored, with a silk napkin square and a simple silk tie with no ornamentation or busy patterns. Prices start at $14.99, with designer mens shirts could ranging from $217.00-$700.00.

    • Formal - This can be the same attire as Black Tie, with a white men’s dress shirt, or dress code can be more lenient, with suits worn without ties or worn with black dress shirts; it all depends on the city and the formality of the event. The price ranges from $29.75-$165.00.

    • Black Tie - Tuxedos are worn at these events, so the perfect men’s shirt would be a tuxedo shirt. Choose either stiff cotton or linen in white or off-white. The shirt can have a stiff front or more traditionally, Marcella, plain or pleated. Tuxedo shirts can have mother-of-pearl buttons or be fastened with cuff links and shirt studs. The collar can come in Lay-down, Wing or Wingtip, or Mandarin. Prices range from $7.95-$225.Source URL: http://icip2idayusof.blogspot.com/2009/12/

Christmas Fancy Dress

    3 Alternatives to the Traditional Santa Claus Outfit

    Christmas Fancy Dress The traditional Santa Claus outfit has become extremely popular during the festive season. It seems that in the weeks leading up to the 25th December these Christmas fancy dress costumes are everywhere. On the street corner rattling a box for your money, in countless shops promoting the latest Xmas gift, in Santa's Grottos up and down the country and of course at family gatherings scaring the younger children.

    The Santa Claus outfit is also the most popular costume at the end-of-year office do and festive fancy dress parties. So, if you are planning on going to one such party this year and would like to be at least a little bit original, what are the alternative Christmas fancy dress costumes that are available to you?


    A Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer suit is always a good choice amongst the men at this time of the year. There are female versions of the costume, but I believe the really good ones out there are those for the men. Please note that not all reindeer costumes come with a red nose, but if you find a great reindeer suit that does not have one, then a red Comic Relief nose will always make a good substitute.


    Ladies can choose to go to the party in a Sexy Miss Santa costume, but in my opinion an even better and far less risque choice is to go as a Christmas tree fairy or an angel. The angel outfits currently available are extremely flattering and stand out even in a room full of Christmas fancy dress costumes. I would like to say one word of warning though with this type of outfit. Make sure that the angel wings are not likely to restrict your movement at the party.


    I have saved my personal favourite to last, the Snowman costume, which I believe is the best alternative to a Santa Claus outfit. We are a nation brought up on the heart warming tale by Raymond Briggs, so a Snow man suit is always going to be well loved at the party. Also, it is a unisex outfit that comes in styles for men and women, as well as some hilarious looking novelty ones. However, if you are going to go down the novelty route, please make sure you are well aware whether your suit is easy to get in and out of with regards to visiting the bathroom during the evening.

Man Movie Review: Avatar

    Not Santa Clause movie, Chritmas songs, but the hottest film in town at end of this year, Avatar. Avatar has been a long time coming, not least because Cameron first got the idea more than a decade ago and he has not directed one since 1997’s Titanic.

    He's had to wait all this time for technology to catch up to his vision of a strange alien world and the war for its precious resources, and has invented a lot of it to push everything from cameras to 3D techniques forward.

    Looking at the actors alone, Sam Worthington is pretty much perfect for the part he plays. He narrates a good part of the movie and has a voice with a bit of an attitude — yet still calming — that was needed to fit the bill. The other actor that stands out is Stephen Lang, who plays the tough-as-nails Colonel Miles Quaritch.

    If I were to picture in my mind the type of person who should have played Colonel Quaritch, it would be Stephen Lang. I found Giovanni Ribisi to be an odd choice to play the corporate weasel heading up the project. He just seemed a bit young for the part. Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver and Michelle Rodriguez all did a fine job but none of them were called upon to go over and above what you might expect from them.

    Now I'm think about it, the story line was pretty simple. The corporate bullies, with the help of the army, step in to take something valuable and they don’t care who they are inconveniencing by doing it. We’ve seen this a million times before on film and probably more times in real life. The only difference with Avatar is that it is happening on an alien planet, with a race of which we have never heard and with some of the best special effects we have ever seen.

    In conclusion, if you didn’t already expect the special effects in this movie, the SFX are impeccable and he uses them well. Instead of just shoving them in your face, he weaves them into the story beautifully, and they come off effortlessly.

    Find out where you can get this Avatar DVD if you intend to add this into your last piece of collection this year.

    1. Egoiste By Chanel For Men. Eau De Toilette Spray 1.7 Ounces by Chanel

    A little of this one goes a long way. By far the crown jewel of colognes. For secure and confident men. Very intense and changes notes constantly.

    2. M7 by Yves Saint Laurent For Men. Eau De Toilette Spray 3.3 Oz. by Yves Saint Laurent

    Opinions are very split on this classic by Yves Saint Laurent. To me it smells of luxury and fine living. Starts like cherry cough syrup and ends like fine pipe tobacco,  so this is strongly addictive once you start to "taste' it.

    I have more than 10 different colognes in my collection right now but this one beats all of them both hands down.I hope it will stay forever.


    Top notch.6 out of 5 stars.

    3. LA NUIT DE L'HOMME by YSL Men's EDT Cologne by Yves Saint Laurent

    This is the YSL's evening interpretation of the modern classic L'Homme. A little sweeter and longer lasting than L'Homme, and a little more sophisticated.

    4. PERRY ELLIS MEN 3.4 oz EDT Cologne NIB by Perry Ellis

    While strange to see a Perry Ellis frag on this list, don't underestimate it like many cologne snobs. Garners many compliments and leaves you wanting more all day. Long lasting as well. The beauty is this really smell very close to Acqua, and is light enough to wear at work or to school or wherever.

    5. Chanel Pour Monsieur By Chanel For Men, Eau De Toilette Spray by Chanel

    For the classic man who likes fine clothes and fine jewelry. Screams opulence.

    6. L'homme Yves Saint Laurent By Yves Saint Laurent For Men. Eau De Toilette Spray

    An intoxicating daytime cologne that you never tire of and has volume control so you can't overspray it. Moreover, YSL l'homme is not as fruity and light as Aqua di Gio, and is a bit stonger but just as nice. No musk, some citrus and more like a pleasant talcum powder smell. Very fresh but longer lasting than the Aqua di Gio.

    7. Perry Ellis 360 By Perry Ellis For Men. Eau De Toilette Spray by Perry Ellis

    Another unsung favorite of mine, the original Perry Ellis 360. Just like the new Perry Ellis 2008, I get complimented almost everytime I wear it. Starts off like bad medicine, and ends ends up very soft & woodsy, thus 360 degrees.

    8. Egoiste Platinum By Chanel For Men. Eau De Toilette Spray 1.7 by Chanel

    Unlike it's brother Egoiste, Platinum is much more conservative. Still refined however and can easily be worn anytime, anywhere. Please note, it's nothing like Egoiste in the least.

    9. Obsession By Calvin Klein For Men. Eau De Toilette Spray by Calvin Klein

    I'm not one wearing colognes and such every day. There is one however that I reach for more often than any other. Its Calvin Klein's Obsession, for men.

    A true classic though that many women still love. The best of the CK line. I still remembered one of the feedback given by my friend, he had used this cologne for a number of years and then for some reason he switched and used a number of other scents. The compliments were not as frequent with the other scents. Since coming back to Obsession, he once again was told how pleasing the fragrance is by a few people.

    10. Antaeus By Chanel For Men, Eau De Toilette Spray, by Chanel

    This is one that I have tested but do not own yet. I really liked what I smelled and if you do your homework you'll find there are very few negative comments out there. Will probably be my next purchase sometime in the future.Source URL: http://icip2idayusof.blogspot.com/2009/12/

Man Fashion: Mao Suit

    Man Fashion designers are remodeling the traditional Mao suit in the hope that it will once again become a popular item of clothing.

    The gray "Zhongshan", or Mao suit, that President Hu Jintao wore when he stood on the rostrum in Tian'anmen Square for the 60th anniversary celebration of New China, caused a stir both at home and abroad. It had a Western-style slim cut, but all the suit's characteristic elements, including pockets, buttons and color.

    Sun Yat-sen (1866-1925), first president of the Republic of China, introduced the Zhongshan suit.

    It dominated local menswear for six decades - from 1920 to 1980 - during which time Western media portrayed China as a "gray society" as all the men wore them and looked the same. Chairman Mao Zedong popularized it and this is why it is known in the West as the "Mao suit".

    When President Hu wore his Mao suit it signaled its rejuvenation and designers busied themselves creating new patterns for the new millennium. The modern Mao suit is an expression of one's personality.

    According to Liu Yuanfeng, dean of Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology (BIFT), Mao suit firstly made an appearance when Western culture was brought into China in 1920. The Mao suit was a fusion of fashion and culture. It had the outline of a Western suit, but had Chinese elements.

    There are redesigned Mao suits on the market now that have a casual look. Kevin Kelly, Eve and Notting Hill are three menswear brands that have produced new styles that are currently only available in Beijing and Shanghai.

    The modern Mao suit has shiny copper buttons instead of gray plastic ones, and is slim-cut. The four pockets have been cut out. The suits are made from synthetic fibers and silk rather than just cotton. It can also be embroidered and accessorized with scarves, leather bags and boots.

    With mixture of Chinese and Western culture, would you believe, Mao suits, inheriting both, will become popular again?Source URL: http://icip2idayusof.blogspot.com/2009/12/
