The Dark Knight Rises and Insights a Massacre


Photo Courtesy of CNN.com
According to CNN.com, a 24 year old gunman killed 12 innocents at the Dark Knight Rises premiere in Aurora, Colorado last night. Witnesses say that he was heavily armed and waiting for the kill. Along with the 12 casualties, 38 other people were also wounded in this tragic turn of events. CNN reporter Michael Pearson says, "One of the injured was just 3 months old." The police arrested Holmes shortly after the shooting, yet Frank Fania, a police spokesman says, "He did not resist. He did not put up a fight." There is no news as to whether or not the shooter whose name was released as James Holmes,  is officially mentally unstable but I expect to hear more news about this tragic incident as the day goes on. My prayers and condolences go out to the families and friends of the victims of this tragic shooting.

Don't Let the Style Sands Pass through the Hourglass

Shape 2: The Hourglass Figure also known as the double triangle, is a shape that's also very common in women. The best way to tell if you have an hourglass figure is to note if your bust is large and curvy, your waist is smaller than your bust and hips combined, and your hips are full.

Betty Brosmer; Famous for her hourglass figure.
Betty Brosmer's hourglass is more pronounced than most women's, but there you can see a rough translation of what an hourglass figure looks like.

Because women with hourglass figures are busty and have wider hips, it's best to accentuate those dominant features. However, it is not always easy accentuating those features and catering to the tiny waist as well; but rest assured, I will give you some tips that will help!

TIP 1:  Choose tight fitting shirts!

       Tight fitting shirts will accentuate your bust MODESTLY of course, but accentuate none the less. For example, this is a casual outfit that you can put together for an hourglass figure.

                and of course....

     A HOT SHOE!  Preferably something bright and colorful, so that your shoe becomes your statement piece, as you're wearing white. This look works with any color shirt, shoe, or wash of jean; however this is just my personal preference for my every day style :)

TIP 2: When going formal, always match the shape of the dress to your shape. For instance, with an hourglass shape, you would want to find a dress that has somewhat of an hourglass shape as well, this way it will easily mold to your curves and the shape of your body.

These dresses are more modest and for the older women, but with the right accessories and eye for style anyone can pull these off.

Here's a little nostalgia for my younger girls!

and always add a little edge and put a modern touch on your vintage. I'll add a subtle but statement piece ring.

So, there you have it! Casual and formal looks to fit any hourglass figure.

Square Cut or Pear Shaped, Your Clothes Won't lose their shape!

Tuesday, July 17, 2012 0 comments

Today's fashion tip centers on body shape and silhouette. There are many different body types and shapes, however I will highlight only a few of the common shapes and teach you what to wear and how to wear it according to body type.

Shape 1: Pear. As shown in the picture to the left, some celebrities with a pear shaped body include: Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, Kim Kardashian and Tyra Banks. A pears shaped body is one of the most common body shapes found in women. It includes a curvy waist and a backside wider than the width of your shoulders. It may seem like dressing a pear shaped body is a hassle, but it isn't.

Step 1: Focus your attention upward to the bust and waist area, by choosing tighter silhouettes and accentuating the waistline area.

This dress allows you to accentuate the bust and waistline area, while offering a simple alternative to camouflage the hips and backside area. Paired with statement pieces pictured below, this outfit is great for lunch with the girls, or a perfect date night.
