Large Size Women Shoes

With over 30 percent of all women’s shoe sales being size nine and above, there is big money in selling large size women shoes. The fact is women’s feet are getting bigger. While women over the age of 35 have an average shoe size of seven and a half, their younger counterparts average a shoe size of eight and a half.

This “growing” demand for women’s shoes in sizes nine through fifteen has spawned many new retailers and shoe manufacturers who specialize in larger sizes. Twenty years ago, a woman with big feet had very limited options in shoes. Now, she can choose from a vast array of business, casual, and even golfing shoes.

It is estimated that approximately 85 percent of women buy shoes in the wrong size. Most often, they buy shoes that are too small. Ill-fitting shoes can contribute to a whole host of medical problems including bunions, corns, hammertoes, and calluses. With the larger sizes more commonly available now, women are finding the styles that they want in the sizes that they need. This

Pearl Necklace

The price of a pearl necklace depends on the quality of its pearls. Saltwater pearls are generally more expensive than freshwater ones, which are cultured. The sheen and the thickness of the pearls’ nacre also affect the price, as well as the size and roundness of the pearls themselves. Pearl necklaces of various colors are available on the market. Smaller pearls in light hues of blue or pink are usually more suitable for young children, while the creamier, ivory-toned pearls are preferred by older women. Jewelry pieces made from black pearls are very, very expensive, since these pearls are so rare.

According to Chinese folklore, pearls are the tears of a dragon. In Roman mythology, they are the tears of Venus. Jewelry designers, in their tireless efforts to do justice to the legendary beauty of these gems, have been adding their own twists to the pearl necklace. Aside from the classic strand, the pearls used in necklaces are sometimes set in gold, silver or platinum. Some designers also mix pearls with other gems to create a

Casual Dressing

Take time to build a casual wardrobe and you will always feel more put together and comfortable.

1. Choose your outfits in your best colors. Start with 3 colors that look great on you and build around those.

2. For workout clothes buy a sweat suit that suits you in color and shape. You will always look great leaving the gym and won’t be too embarrassed to stop into a store to pick something up on the way home.

3. Jewelry should not be worn with a bathing suit; both perfume and jewelry should not be worn at the gym.

4. Jeans are a great casual item and look better if they are in good condition and are more slimming if they are in a darker color.

5. Women find it difficult to get jeans to fit well and often wear jeans that are not very flattering. To find the perfect jeans for your body type takes a little work, time and patience and you may have to try on a good number of pairs before

Summer Wardrobe

Be HONEST! What is your body shape? Even thin people have parts that should not be enhanced and those that should. Is it time for me to say it already? “Just because they make it in your size does not mean you should buy it.”

Arms – are yours toned? Then wear sleeveless and capped sleeves. If there is even the hint of flab, keep it covered. OK, stop whining. If you buy the correct fabric, you won’t be hot. Natural fabrics, such as cotton are much cooler than synthetic fabrics. In fact, having your arms constantly exposed to the sun can make you even warmer.

Bust – If you have a large bust, do not accentuate with tops gathered around the bust or with horizontal stripes. If you have a smaller bust, wearing wrap, criss-cross, or gathered tops will make you look a little bigger.

Stomach & Hips – Sigh! Here we go again with those low-rise pants. Please, let me get through one day without seeing flab hanging over a pair of low-rise pants. Wearing low-rise pants and a short shirt with that hint of flab hanging over makes you look ridiculous, not

Care for Lambswool

There are two main types of ingredient that may result in the deterioration of a Lambswool cardigan or wool sweater washed under incorrect conditions:

Sorry, but it gets a little technical from here on.

In addition to the normal surfactants, emulsifiers, perfumes etc contained in ordinary detergents, the so-called ‘bio’ detergents also include a small quantity of enzymes. These are protein digesting biological catalysts, and are effective at decomposing stains or soiling in which protinaceous material is the main constituent. Egg, blood, and most other food stains etc are all protein based and will be effectively removed by enzyme-containing detergents.

The problem is that like fur and hair, the histological structure of the fibre in Lambswool cardigans and sweaters is based on the polypeptide and disulphide linked protein Keratin. This can itself be affected by the biological components in some of these detergents. It is possible that enzymes may attack the cell membrane complex of the wool fibres, and lead to disintegration of the structure into its component cortical cells, this leads to a hole filled Lambswool garment.

In order to increase their apparent cleansing efficiency, some washing powders include bleaches or ‘bleach activators’.

Perfect Customized Engagement Ring

Well-established Jeweler

The jeweler that you choose should have an excellent reputation within the community as well as on the internet. You should ask family, friends, and co-workers if the jewelry store you are considering is a wise choice and if any of them have personal experience in dealing with the shop. Take your friend’s recommendation seriously, as they have no reason to lie to you.

If the jeweler has a web presence, read over the most recent reviews left on the company website and check out any reviews listed on popular business feedback sites such as Yelp! or Angie’s List. Again, take these reviews to heart, as people leaving feedback have no reason to lie. However, if you find a bad review nestled in the midst of numerous good reviews, you can probably dismiss it as simply a disgruntled customer having a bad day.

You also want to make sure that the gemstone you are buying comes with gemological Institute of America, Inc. (GIA) certification. A responsible jeweler should be able to show you the GIA report with no questions asked.

Light Weight Necklace

A magnificent necklace is, thus, a part of the life of a lady, no matter from which age, cast or community group she belongs.

Stockings

Nylon stockings were scarce during WWII because all available nylon was needed in the war effort. A lot of nylon was used in making parachutes. Production of nylon stockings started up again at the end of WWII.

A new trend in stockings was started in the 1960s with the introduction of pantyhose. Until the introduction of pantyhose, stockings had to be worn with garter belts or girdles. The stockings were held up with clasps attached to the girdle or garter belt. Today, pantyhose are available in a multitude of styles. These stockings come in sheer, ultra sheer, nude, sandal toe, and reinforced toe. Some pantyhose come with built in body shaping and control tops to trim and smooth the tummy, rear, and hips. Women can even buy an anti-cellulite pantyhose. These stockings promise to reduce cellulite appearance by using micro beads imbedded into the fabric. Results are visible after four weeks. The beads remain effective for five washings. The stockings firm and tone legs for a sleeker look.

Nylon stockings come in a wide variety of colors and are also available as anklets, knee highs and thigh highs. Support hose are even available for those women

Types Of Gemstone Jewelry

Composite gemstones

These are gemstones made from a small piece of a desirable, genuine stone that has been combined with an imitation or inexpensive stone. There are two main types of composite gemstones that you can come across in the market: Doublets and triplets. Doublets are made from large, inexpensive piece of material topped by a slice of gemstone. Triplets are units that are assembled in three parts instead of two. The divisions are hard to pick unless you observe them under the microscope.

Even if you don’t have the knowledge on gemstones you can tell that the stones being sold to you are not real by their names. If you come across gemstones with fancy names such as American ruby, Oriental emerald, or Australian jade, raise a red flag and ask a professional to take a look at them.

Stabilized and reconstituted gemstones

Stabilization is the process where the gem is forced to bond using pressure. The material being forced to bond is usually too soft and chalky to use. Reconstituted gemstones on the other hand are made from mixing powders of the real stone and binding them using a binding agent. Coloring

Wear Casual Clothes Clubbing

First off, the casual clothes that you choose to wear to go clubbing should have nice colors. If you feel like it, wear something with attractive prints. Perhaps, with a popular saying or an expressive t-shirt or something. Casual clothes that give you a personality boost. Casual clothes that gives you character – no, let me say that again, casual clothes that enhance your personal character.

As long as you don’t choose casual clothes that are either too baggy and the casual clothes should make you look neat and presentable. When you’re wearing casual clothes clubbing, slippers, sandals and sports shoes are totally out of the question, regardless of the attire. The belts and accessories that you have on with your casual clothes will definitely make a big difference to your clubbing experience. Try a nice little casual tank top with cropped khaki pants with large hoop earrings for a change.

You’re not expected to be able to afford the kind of clubbing clothes that a CEO or royalty can afford but it’s essential that you invest in good quality casual clothes for clubbing. The bottom line is your clubbing casual clothes should never be your

Spice Up Your Fashion

Benefits of Matte Lipstick

Low-maintenance – unlike the glossy alternatives, the matte lipstick has the potential to last a really long time. While it may be necessary to reapply once a day to maintain the best look, there is much less risk of experiencing issues related to cracking, caking, or needing a layer of moisture.

Minimal transfer – this type of lipstick is basically smudge-free. It stays in place after the initial application and is unlikely to spread over the course of the day. It is a great lip product to give the confidence of knowing it will not transfer when going about everyday activities, such as eating a sandwich or drinking a cup of coffee. Other types of lipstick need to be wiped frequently, but this isn’t the case with the matte products.

Natural looking – even though matte lipstick can give a bold look, they are still very effective at creating a natural appearance that is completely different to many of the glossy types.

Warm weather – this lipstick is a practical option to wear on hot summer days. Many of the glossy lipsticks will start to smudge and get easier to remove. This is caused by

Vintage and Modern Timepieces

Persistence-
Reliability is the first thing to consider while you hunt for the right watch. Vintage watches are precious and they require a lot of maintenance too. As much as you love the idea of having a timeless piece in your hand, you will not want to keep spending more amount in getting it repaired every now and then. Vintage pieces are not as reliable as the modern watches.

If you are looking for something that costs you less in maintenance then your straightforward choice should be the modern watches. The contemporary watches are built with latest technology that is far more durable and reliable than the olden watches. Most of these watches require the replacement of the batteries whereas the other timepieces need routine parts replacement. So vintage watches don’t win the battle here.

Styling-
The whole purpose of buying a watch is to style your over all look. That is why it is the prime area of focus when you hunt for the watch. Selecting a modern watch or a vintage timepiece will reflect your personal style. While choosing a watch, not only your taste matters but also the kind of collection you already

Clothing Trikcs for Short Women

– Your aim is to elongate your body. The most frequent mistake petite women making in terms of clothing is cutting their bodies by using pieces of clothes as jackets and belts in the wrong proportions. Wearing large belts on top of pants or skirts together with blouses of different color is not the best choice as it cuts the body in two parts, drawing attention to the shortness of the figure.

– You should also avoid wearing extra fabric around the waist. You already possess a good amount of volume in this area and the last thing you need adding some more.

– A false myth is the idea that very long skirts make your legs look long. Very long, baggy skirts make your legs look shorter. Long skirts may make you look taller if they go down to the ankle level and if they are straight.

– A good trick to elongate your legs is to wear straight pants that cover your shoes. This will definitely add some extra inches to your legs.

– Mixing colors is permitted for petite women but remember that it is the monochromatic clothing that makes you

Care For Pearls

Maintenance Dos

1. Clean your pearl jewelry with a soft, damp cloth. The cloth should not be too wet. When you buy pearl jewelry, then there include a soft cloth with the jewelry which can use for cleaning purposes.

2. Keep your pearl jewelry in a separate pouch or box. A pearl’s surface is not very hard, so it’s easy to be damaged by other pieces of jewelry if you store them together. According to the Mohs hardness scale, pearls, or Calcite, are only on level 3, which is right between a fingernail and a copper penny. Diamonds are on level 10. Wrap pearls with a soft cloth and store separately.

3. Pearls are living organisms, so they need fresh air to breathe. Take them out of their storage space and wear at least once every season; otherwise, the color of the pearls will quickly start to change over time.

4. When dressing and undressing, put on your pearl jewelry last and take them off first. This will help them keep their luster. Cosmetics such as skin products, makeup, and perfume may have an erosive effect on pearls. Pearls can absorb these chemicals, so

Platinum Rings

The strength and high melting point of this metal is what caught the attention of many scientists, but with plenty of extraction challenges of pure platinum, delays in use were experienced till the end of the 18th century. In 1786, the first successful extraction was made by Pierre-Francois Chabaneu and in good amount for that matter. He later presented Pope Pius VI with a platinum chalice and went ahead to establish a production company to start the platinum age in Spain. From here it started being used in different items including royal crowns and utensils, military aircraft and engagement rings.

This precious metal is rare and remains to be amongst the rarest on the planet. This rarity coupled with its tedious and prolonged extraction makes it amongst the most valuable substances too. Platinum rings have brought in lots of competition to its gold counterpart with most people including celebrities now choosing platinum engagement rings as romantic gestures and status symbols.

Platinum rings have become very popular majorly because of their high quality finish that makes them stand out from other rings. These rings are also quite low in maintenance, making them some of the best for

Loose Diamonds

Loose diamonds are the hardest naturally made substance on earth. This is what makes them great for jewelry, but also makes them great for other things, too. Industrial companies that drill through the earth may sometimes use diamonds since they are so hard. If you are imagining a huge diamond shaped like a drill bit, this is not very accurate! These companies simply incorporate diamonds into their drill bits in order to make them more durable. Dentists may also use diamonds in order to drill through teeth. Human teeth are pretty durable so it will take some pretty tough material to drill through them or to remove them if necessary. People who are getting veneers may end up being drilled on with diamonds. How fancy is that?

Loose diamonds have to come a long way before you see them in your local jewelry store. They actually come from deep within the earth: about one hundred miles beneath, to be more clear! They begin as carbon molecules and since they are exposed to such extreme conditions (like heat and pressure), they bond together in a lattice-structure that make them more durable than ever so they can survive these
