Choosing the Right Bra for Your Outfit

Your bra choice is more than intimate wear. It supports you, conforms your shape and can harmony to the clothes you are wearing. With so many different types of bras available, however, from tee-shirt bras to multi-way bras, it can be difficult to choose just the right one to flatter your outfit.

The Cut of Your Clothing

The versatility of today’s bras make them a unique fashion statement. A black lace bra can compliment a sheer blouse, adding just a touch of frills to the v-neck edges. An open bodice, multi-way bra adds elegance and volume to a plunging neck line. Back straps also add to the fashionable wardrobe, with t-straps, low back cross straps and multi-strap designs. If you are wearing a low-back dress, choose a strap design that adds value to your clothing style and sets off the grace of your low-back ensemble.

Your sports bra looks great for recreational activities, with a large number of styles to choose from, from simple stretch bras you can accent with clothing layers, to halter-tops that can be worn alone or under a loose tee-shirt. Sports bras do well with lounge and casual wear, but do not always flatter your professional, formal or party outfits. If your outfit is sleeveless and consists of something more formal than a baggy shirt, wear a thin-strapped, fully supportive bra that will allow you to reveal your cleavage without revealing unsightly straps. Wear a strapless bra for strapless gowns. Choose colors that harmonize with your clothing.

Getting the Right Bra Size

No matter how sexy the ensemble looks, the wrong bra size can ruin your appearance. Your bra should fit comfortably, without sagging under the arms or in the cups. If you spill out over the top, your bra is too small. A poorly fitting bra can cause the skin to roll under the arms, ruining the cut of your outfit. Another indication of a poorly fitting bra is one that has straps that dig into the shoulders or slide down while in movement.

Measure your bra size before shopping. Your size may change from year to year as you lose or gain weight, bear children or simply grow older. Wear a tee-shirt when you shop so you can see how it will look under the thinnest clothing. Stoop and lift your entire breast into the cup, then straighten to check the fit. You should be able to fasten the bra comfortably on the second or third hook. A correctly fitting bra will do more than make you look good. It will increase your comfort and add to your confidence in your healthy appearance.

The Quality of Your Life Style

The bra you wear should match your life-style, which can be as variable as the types of bras offered. Your morning may begin with a jog around the block and end with evening cocktails at the local club. Wear the type of bra that looks stylish with your activities. Match their color and design to the outfit you are wearing. Wear low-cut bras with low-cut clothing and save your sexy, back-strapped bras for those special outfits that are just craving a little designer flair.

As an undergarment, your bra is part of your most personal attire and is the most important asset you have in wearing outfits that are stylish, fit well and add grace and form to your figure.

Buy 1 Get 2 Free Aeropostale Socks

I just know when I see pretty good deals, if I miss to buy that item in my first visit, I just couldn’t sleep until I buy one for me. One example are these Aeropostale ankle socks I bought last week. I didn’t buy them when I first saw them as I had other items in mind why I visited their store at the mall. When I went home that day, I couldn’t stop thinking about the socks.

Socks are a must-have for me in winter. Besides, I have a 7-year old girl that constantly needs socks for school. So I went back to the mall and made sure I got me 9 pairs of socks with nice prints in them. Aeropostale sale for socks was buy one get two free! Each pack contains three pairs for $10.50. I paid a little over $11 for 9 pairs of socks, yeah!

Each pair is just $1.30 after tax, a few cents more than what is individually sold at Walmart. Aero for me is the winner quality-wise. Walmart’s socks are stringy inside which could trap your little toes when you put them on in a hurry! Hurry to your nearest Aeropostale store and see if you can still score this awesome sock deal!

For the Love of the T-shirt

Since their inception, t-shirts have been uniting people and making statements. People love them, and it’s easy to see why. There are a few key reasons that help to explain why people love their t-shirts so much.

Form of Expression

T-shirts have been used to tell jokes, make political and social statements, communicate emotions and much more. As such, when a t-shirt’s expression really speaks to an individual it can cause a special bond.

Nostalgia

Whether it is the t-shirt they wore or received at their first concert, or the t-shirt they were wearing when they met their significant others, some t-shirts help to tell special stories for different individuals. Seeing that shirt brings back not only memories, but possibly feelings and experiences that are worth reliving.

Highlight Common Interests

T-shirts, particularly iconic ones, are embossed with symbols that can be recognized worldwide. When an individual recognizes and shares a love for a particular symbol on another person’s shirt that can form an instant connection between the two parties. Such encounters can sometimes develop into great relationships, or at least enjoyable conversations in the moment.

There are various reasons why people love certain t-shirts. Some of the most common reasons are the way they allow individuals to express themselves, a sense of nostalgia that the t-shirt brings, or a common bond that iconic t-shirts can insight.

Choosing the Right Hair Extension Method for You

 Too often, people assume that amazing hair is something you are born with. This is simply not the case. Great hair is possible for just about anyone with today’s options. In fact, many people are turning to hair extensions to provide them with the style they desire. Since there are several different methods for extensions, it is important to pick one that suits your needs. The following guide will help you select the right ones.

 Glue In

 A lot of people get glue in extensions because they are longer lasting. This type of extension is added to the hair with a keratin bond. Most people love the look of them, but they dislike the maintenance that is required. You also have to be careful when you condition your hair or use hair tools. These products and tools can weaken the bond connecting the hair and the extension. If you are low maintenance with your hair and simply want to add length or volume, you will probably love having these in your hair.

 Clip In

 Popular alternatives to long lasting extensions are ones that clip into your hair. These are very versatile, and there are several different styles to choose from. They are also available in real and synthetic hair. You can add these into your hair daily or on occasion to add length, texture, volume, and style. If you choose this option, it is important to take care of your hairpieces. Make sure to wash them and let them dry flat. Also, comb through them regularly to get rid of any tangles. This will ensure that they last longer and look better when you wear them.

 Weave

 Women who have thick, coarse hair often prefer sewn-in extensions. A weave is applied to tightly braided pieces of your own natural hair. Most people have to tighten the braided sections of their hair regularly so the hair looks good. The tightening process can take a little time, but it does enable the hair to look beautiful as a result.

 Tape

 You can also tape extensions into your hair using Sellotape. This might be a good option if you want volume added to your hair. A long row of extensions is taped in between a section of your hair. Most people love the results, and the upkeep is minimal as long as you do not brush too hard.

 Before you choose an extension, make sure to evaluate your hair and your needs. This will allow you to make a more informed decision about your hair for the best results.

Two Pairs of Steve Madden Bedtime Boots for $12.88

This is what I am talking about! Deep discount on Steve Madden bedtime boots occurred last night. Shoppers went crazy at 11 pm because of these boots on Steve Madden website. They were on clearance for $14.99 and an additional 50% off by using a code SAVE and FREE SHIPPING. Who doesn’t want that? I know I already have several pairs of boots, some haven’t been worn once since I bought them but deals like this are hard to resist. This deal did not last long, a girl I told about it soon after I checked out wasn’t so lucky for it was out of stock when she logged in to her account.

These are perfect to wear in the house to keep your feet warm all the time. Seeing a mad deal like this, you should be fast enough to get your credit card in order to avail the promo or before the stocks run out, otherwise, you’ll regret it, haha.

Aside from getting these two pairs for under $13, I get 3% cashback by going through Ebates. It is a website by the way that pays you certain percentage from your favorite online store. I would recommend you will use it simply by creating a profile there, click the link and next time you go online shopping, go through ebates and voila!

Shopping at Rue21 Under $8

For some Rue21 clothing store isn’t popular for them but it has become one of my shopping destinations when I go to the mall. When they say 50% off additional clearance items, it means deep discounts on their clothing. Unlike Wetseal or Forever21, I noticed that even though they say BOGO clearance items, you’d still pay at least $7 or $10 a piece which for me is deceiving.

Here is an example of what “deal” is. For a chevron print dress, originally priced at $17.97, I got it for $5, the second item is a denim vest with hood for $2. Original price was $21.97. I am glad I’ve waited purchasing a denim vest for I found such a deal for it. Total cost for two items is $7.58. I saved a whooping of $32.94 in Tuesday’s shopping trip.

I have been wanting to buy a vest, I looked elsewhere, even online stores but I just couldn’t spend so much money on a very small piece of clothing. Thank goodness Rue21 has it for a lot less! Happy shopper I am as always.

Wedding Anniversary Presents for Me

My husband did not give me anything on our tenth wedding anniversary instead, he took us out to the farm where our girls had fun and dinner to the Hibachi restaurant last Sunday. It doesn’t really matter to me if there is no gift as long as he remembered to celebrate our big with us.

I asked him if we could go to DSW shoe store before dinner since I had a $20 store coupon so I could use it. He agreed with me and I took home two pairs of shoes, one that is flat open sandals and a pair of running shoes. He ended up not getting anything for he did not find any shoes he likes so I was the only one bought presents for me, haha. I like that very much.

I didn’t plan of buying another pair of running shoes but it’s hard to resist such a deal like it. Besides, the coupon says $20 off $49 purchase and if I buy just the TH flats, the coupon could not be used since my husband did not buy any. This is good though so I will be encouraged to go out there and walk some more since I have really good, comfortable and light shoes to wear.

 photo shoes_zps57880eda.jpg

… you see, I saved more than half of what I paid for these two pairs. Running shoes priced for $64.94 minus 30% store clearance price ($19.48) and additional discount $13.69 from the coupon. Nike shoes final price is $31.77. The flats were $29.94 minus 30% off store clearance price ($8.98) and coupon $6.31, final price is $14.65.

Total for two pairs including tax is $50.25, sweet deal, isn’t it? I saved $72. 58 which is more than half of what I spent in their store. This is why, I love going to DSW because of the savings I get when I shop there.

If you are a wise shopper, you don’t need to pay full price on things when you know you can get them for less no matter what brand they are.

Labor Day Shopping

The best destination when it comes to holidays like Labor Day is the mall! I am talking as if I have unlimited budget, lol. Well, if you are a thrift shopper, you will go wander around the mall and take your time to dig for really deep discounts on whatever it is you are thinking of buying.

Here’s my deals today. First stop was CVS pharmacy and did not expect to find these white Gildan men’s shirt in their clearance rack, 90% off the original price which was 3/$12. Final price, it costs me 40 cents each. Only 5 pieces left so I bought them all for my balik-bayan box to send to the Philippines. If my brothers don’t want them, plenty of my cousins and uncles who will want them.

Another purchase that I think I got me a discount are these two PINK bralettes. I am in need of them to make me feel comfortable for my walking exercise. They would make a great cover up of my flesh under a roomy tank for walking or working out at the gym in the future. Full-priced $19.95 each and I made it down to $10.77 each including tax due to store coupons that I received when Victoria’s Secret sent me catalogs in the mail. Not only that, I also snagged me two FREE undies by using free underwear coupons! How sweet is that?

While a lot of customers are partying on 7/$26.50 panties, I don’t. Why buy if I could have free panties?
What about you folks? What did you do on Labor Day? Did you find great deals too? Don’t be shy to share them in my comment section.
