Baking soda, hydrogen peroxide and warm water mixed together can help remove yellow staining on shirts that might have been left behind from deodorant or sweat.

FIVE
Use a piece of fashion tape to keep a lapel down and not flapping around, though we do admire that Michael Jackson look.

SIX
Delicate sweaters can stay in the best shape possible when you wash them with baby shampoo instead of detergent.

SEVEN
When packing your coat or jacket, reduce the chances of wrinkles happening by turning it inside out and then folding and packing it.

EIGHT
Run deodorant over the soles of your feet to stop them from blistering in shoes that might rub or seem too small.

NINE
Use a safety pin to thread a string in a hoodie or other jacket that has come undone and out of the shirt entirely.

TEN
Spray lemon juice on whites before you wash them to keep them looking white and to remove any stains that might have happened during the time they were worn.

Tips For Getting Holiday Fashion for Less

Written by Samantha Skinner

If you’re looking to look good this holiday season but not spend too much to buy something you’re only going to wear once, then check out some of these ideas to help you get in the holiday mood.

Not only can you find some of the cutest holiday wear out there for less, but you can also wear some of these pieces again and again once you find them. Think cold weather apparel and not necessarily ugly-Christmas-sweater, because no one wears that past the Christmas party.

Check Out Online Outlets
These are great for finding fashions for less. Not only that, but they also provide coupon codes and other essentials that are going to save you even more cash when it comes to purchasing the perfect outfit. Consider the type of clothing item you’re looking for though, because if you want something extremely holiday-like then you may have to search ahead of the holiday hustle and bustle.

Shop Right After the Holidays
Planning ahead for the next holiday season is a great idea. While some might not want to do this because they may gain or lose weight, if you have a pretty constant weight then going to the clearance rack since the holidays are over gives you nothing to lose. With some unbeatable prices, you want to be prepared.

Mix and Match in Your Current Closet
If you have black pants and a red shirt, then you can rock those for the holiday season. You don’t have to purchase something specifically for the holidays when they come up. Being creative with your own wardrobe can help you mix and match and plan for any holiday that might come up. Plus, this is a great way to clean out the closet, as well.

Consider Borrowing
If your friend has it, you should have it too. This is a sharing is caring program and you want to make sure that you both are getting the most use out of the closet full of clothes that you both have. Just ask your friend to borrow some of her holiday-related attire and you can rock it for this holiday season.

Of course, if you want something that is going to pop out a bit more, then splurge and buy something that you actually want and love. There is nothing wrong with spending a little bit more money on something to treat yourself during the holidays. It is the season for giving, so give yourself the gift of a great wardrobe!

Happy holidays!

How to Build the Perfect Wardrobe for Work and Play

Written by Salina Jivani

Looking to have the perfect assortment of clothes for both the office and a day out with friends? You may think that means investing a bunch of money in a bevy of different tops and pants—one set for work and another for play. But you’re be wrong! Invest in a few key pieces of clothing and you’ll be set to sport them both in a business-casual setting at work and a laid-back hang-out scene with your best girl pals.

 

Printed Pants

Pants with prints are great for a casual day out or a business presentation. Just add a solid blouse for work, or a jazzy top with long necklaces for an evening out. It’s all about the way you wear it!

 

Loose blouses

Silk or flowy blouses are great and oh so comfortable! Wear them to work under a sophisticated scarf or blazer or remove the extra layers and wear the blouse solo when you’re entertaining friends or just meeting up at a local pub with your BFF.

 

Knee-length skirts

Skirts are the perfect companion to sexy heels and beautiful blouses alike. Luckily, they’re also perfect for casual and professional settings. Again, here, it’s all about what you wear it with. Add a work-appropriate blouse and modest shoes, and you’re all set to attend that team conference. Throw on some sexy heels and a daring top, and you’re ready to partaay!

 

Remember, for the right look, accessorize, accessorize, accessorize! It’s all about adorning yourself the right way for the right look!
