An increasing number of men and women have expressed a personal preference for this type of jewelry; with many men preferring it because it is not as glitzy as the traditional yellow gold rings. More men and women are now choosing white gold rings for either an engagement or wedding.

When white gold rings are made, another type metal such nickel or silver will be blended with the gold. For instance, an 18K ring would contain 75% gold and 25% of another metal. The reason why another alloy is mixed in is because white is not a natural gold color. Once the metal is added it will become white. The metal blend is normally given a coat of rhodium to bring out the white color. Another reason why metals are mixed in is that 24K or pure gold, needs to be blended with other metals so that it will harden.

White gold rings are moderately priced so many people will find them quite affordable. Yellow gold rings and platinum rings tend to be more costly. The appealing look of this striking jewelry makes them very popular with many ring experts describing them as sophisticated and modern looking. Today, many young couples are choosing white gold rings for their engagements and weddings. They are also very stylish and go well with many types of outfits, whether they are worn for a casual occasion or a formal occasion.

There are a number of benefits to wearing white gold rings. They display the diamond in a more attractive setting than the traditional yellow gold. The gold does not affect the cut and clarity of the diamond. The diamond looks stunning against the gold. They can also handle the wear and tear of everyday activities because they are more durable and scratch resistant. You will worry less about damage and the ring will require less maintenance. However, over a long period of continuously being worn on a daily basis, the white can start to change to a yellowish green. It can also become dull looking. If this happens, you should take it to a jeweler so that it can be re-coated.

Today, there are a wide variety of different types and styles of this stunning jewelry that contain beautiful gemstones such as diamonds. Whether it is for an engagement, wedding, any other special occasion, or to add as an accessory to a trendy outfit, a white gold ring will continue to be the original leader in ring choices.

Gold rings are an elegant addition to any hand. They look beautiful and enhance the beauty and shape of the hand. That is why gold rings are some of the most popular purchases made by people.

You will find a large variety of gold rings in the market. The most commonly sought after rings are engagement rings and wedding rings. Engagement rings are generally gem studded. They may hold one large stone at the center or may have an elaborate setting that looks stunning. On the other hand, wedding rings were plain gold bands in the past. They looked quite sober and were firm testaments of the wearer’s loyalty and faithfulness. But nowadays, you can see a proliferation of delightful styles that have converted the boring band into a circle of delight. You have plain gold bands, in yellow and white, with attractive borders and designs. Then there are two tone gold rings, where white and yellow gold are interspersed to form eye-catching designs. Of course, the plain gold ring is still a huge crowd puller, with many people opting for white or yellow bands. One of the main reasons for selecting the classic wedding ring band is the fact that these complement any jewelry and clothing style. Some couples even get plain bands and engrave their names on them. If the woman is already wearing an engagement ring, she may prefer a gold wedding ring that complements the engagement ring. Fortunately, there are enough choices out there to suit any personality and style.

These days, you can see more and more men wearing gold rings. Men’s gold rings are a little different from the typical ring for women. For one thing, men’s rings are broader and more stolid in style as compared to the delicate and thin selections that dominate the women’s style. Men’s rings typically have very simple designs whereas women’s rings are ornate and stylistic. Women love attractive stones while men go for solid gold or for birth stones like diamonds, emerald, sapphire and topaz.

These days, many people like to shop for funky gold rings. Some of the popular rings include animal rings featuring cutely decorated elephants or dolphins. These rings are embellished with stones and may even come in a variety of colors like yellow, white and burnt orange. Another favorite with women of all ages and preferences is the gold rings set with stones. While some women prefer a single large stone at the center of a design, others go for a number of stones laid out decoratively to form a beautiful pattern. When combined with matching earrings and necklaces or pendants, these gold rings can really catch the eye and make others go green with envy.

Most gold finger rings are available in 18k or 14k gold. These are durable because they contain enough quantities of alloy to ensure that the rings can withstand pressure and rough conditions. 14k gold is best for gem studded varieties. Since gold rings in 14k gold are relatively cheap, it is possible for people to buy different varieties of rings which they can mix and match as they wish.

Picking out watches isn’t always easy. You have to take into consideration all the style and color variations, in addition to feature functionality, all the while staying within your price range. Where should you begin looking? What are some popular brands to look out for? Start here for some useful suggestions!

Shopping online for them is a great way to get an idea of what you’re looking for. In the privacy of your own home, you can ponder what style or functionality you’d like, without pushy sales people staring you down.

Once you figure out style, brand and price range, you can go into a store with an idea of what you want. If you want a watch site that compares several other sites, check out Bizrate. For discounted ones, Overstock is a popular site with great selection.

In the stores, what brands should you look for? First, consider your budget. Are you looking for a $29,000 new one or a $20 Catalog watch? For high-end watches priced in the thousands, check out Cartier, Breitling, Omega, Universal Geneve, Jacques Lemans and Tag Heuer.

For watches in the hundreds price range, you can get a good deal on a Movado, Bulova, Gucci, Citizen, or Invicta. Occasionally you can find some Tag Heuers and Omegas in this price range as well. In the lower hundreds, Seiko, Calvin Klein and Hugo Boss offer classy styles.

Perhaps you’re looking for a good gift watch that doubles as a piece of jewelry. If you’re on a strict budget, start with department stores. For instance, at Macy’s, you could buy a women’s Fossil bracelet watch with a sparkling Swarvoski crystal and stainless steel band, a diamond marker and Mother of Pearl inlay for $57 and get a bonus diamond accent pendant gift with your watch purchase for an additional $49.

However, if you’re looking to really impress for that special occasion, you will want to begin looking for jewelry watches at a jewelers like Zales, Kay’s or Littman’s. You could get a stainless steel ladies Bulova watch with diamond inlays for $300 (or $20/month) at Zales, with a pink sapphire ring bonus gift for an extra $30.

Tiffany and Company is world renowned as being the quintessential jewelry watch, but expect to pay in the thousands. If you’re looking for the extreme in high-end jewelry watches, you will have to visit New York City or Toronto to find an authorized dealer in North America.

Warranties vary as much as the colors, shapes and functions of the various watches you’ll be looking at, so be sure you’re getting a good deal all around. Most inexpensive watches will give you a one to two year warranty, but when you’re buying watches with jewel inlays, you should be getting a more secure service plan. Nothing’s worse than losing a diamond accent, but it happens! Also, when shopping online, be wary of deals that seem “too good to be true” — because they probably are!

Fossil watch is considered exciting in terms of technology as well as fashion and they are available in an array of designs in the market. Fossil watch is dominating the watch market since 1980s and their main objective is to combine old looks with the latest technology. Watches made under this brand are considered durable as they have many years of experience manufacturing watches. They are one of the watches that can withstand the daily jerks and scratches that a watch has to go through. If you are pursuing buying a watch that is a combination of great looks, durability and the latest technology, fossil watch can be the best choice.

There are many watch companies in the market that were not watch companies from the very beginning. They entered into this market because they saw that the demand for designer watches have increased and people prefer varieties to durability. Yet there are a large percentage of people worldwide who want to have a real combo of technology and durability. However, many brands are just fashion symbols and when you are looking for the real choice, consider all pros and cons. It also depends on your budget and usability what you choose.

There is yet another option if you are ready to spend some more dollars and these are jewelry watches. These watches come in different forms. The first one that will come in your mind is watch that has diamonds and precious stones embedded. But actual jewelry watches are those that are made entirely of gold or silver or so on. A gold watch can be considered under the category of jewelry watches and that can be a perfect gift for your beloved on special occasions.

Another thing that cannot be mistaken is that there are no jewelry watches for men. In fact, these days men pay attention to their outfits and fashion accessories a lot and so the designers and manufacturers work on that to bring good and attractive products in this range. Shop around and find quotes and then compare them to end with a great buy.

When it comes to buying gifts for women, jewelry is one of the top choices. Of course you can always give candy or flowers, but these things are temporary. They only last a short amount of time. Jewelry, on the other hand, can last forever.

So let’s say you decide to buy a piece of jewelry as a gift for someone you care about; then you have to decide what type of jewelry to purchase.

Every woman has her own tastes and preferences. If you do not already know what she likes, look for these cues and see if you can decide what would be best:

Earrings- Earrings often work best for women who like to wear their hair up. When they wear their hair up they give the opportunity to highlight earrings whether they are studs or long earrings. Earrings do not work well for women with young children who will be attracted to the earrings and pull on them while they are still in their mothers’ ears.

Necklaces- Necklaces look great on most women. Most women wear tops with a scoop or v neck that offers the perfect showcase for a beautiful necklace. They are not for all women, though. Some women prefer not to wear necklaces because they have larger chests. Women with larger bust lines might run into the problem of a necklace falling right into their cleavage and drawing too much attention there.

Bracelets- Bracelets can be worn by most women and look beautiful. Bracelets are a less commonly worn piece of jewelry, though. They make an outfit look much fancier, so when going for a casual look women often leave the bracelet out of their outfit.

Rings- Rings are one of the most popular pieces of jewelry for women. Unmarried women often wear rings on both hands, while married women primarily wear extra rings on their right hand. Rings can dress up an outfit, or can keep an outfit casual as well depending on the type of setting and stone that you choose.

Before making a choice, try to watch the habits of the person you are looking to purchase for. If she often wears rings or often wears necklaces, that may be because those are the pieces of jewelry that she likes best. But check her jewelry stash to make sure. She may not wear necklaces simply because she does not have any that she likes.

Jewelry is a great choice when looking for a gift to give to a woman you care about. To make sure you get the best gift for her personally, watch her habits, and look for the things mentioned in the list above. You will be sure to make a great choice!

Turquoise has been described as the 2017 color of the year by Pantone. To be exact it is the color Pantone 15- 5519. And Pantone describes this turquoise as an inviting, luminous hue. There is something yes truly illuminating about turquoise. ‘Illuminating’ seems to be the right word. Turquoise doesn’t sparkle. Instead it illuminates and it is a color that can seduce too. But ‘seduce’ may not be the right word either. Scarlet reds and maybe blacks seduce but turquoise, a color of the sea, a color linked to Caribbean, Mediterranean waters calms and excites and illuminates rather than seduces.

Other words used by pantone for turquoise are tranquil and exciting. These might seem contradictory terms. But the effect of color is contradictory and actually there might be nothing contradictory at all in calling a color, both exciting and tranquil.

Still how can one truly describe the effect of colors? But the effect of colors is important. In fashion, colors can be used to electrify and excite e.g if turquoise was used with a metallic look or a certain type of fabric eg Mesh. Or it can be calming like with cotton. Anyway let’s not dig a hole.

Effects are important. The right effect is important for fashion. So turquoise should be used to create the right fashion effect and for 2017, Pantone is perhaps saying that turquoise is a color that can do this for 2017.

Turquoise is just a color and it needs to be used to create the right looks, and the right look needs the right fabric, style/design and also perhaps the right patterns, where the turquoise hue is part of a pattern e.g. with whites and other lighter hues or perhaps with more powerful hues like red.

One can perhaps imagine turquoise as having that loose effect, loose feel, effect. Perhaps it can be described as a color suitable for casual wear but to be more exact, it is a color for Spring and Summer where the casual look is important. It is suitable for the world of the beach or clubs, the afternoons where the sun shines and people rid themselves of coats and heavy jackets and color is important.

Imagine the drapy turquoise chemise dress, the drapy turquoise t-shirt and there the more fitted looks, the tight looks which accent the body, And turquoise is the sea color, the color of beaches, spring/ summer afternoons. It can be used for the popular gypsy dresses and the popular 70s styles which are in vogue. And turquoise is of course an illuminating color which means too that it is a powerful color so a simple turquoise chemise dress might be the right look. One might need subtle designs. Turquoise is a pure, simple color but powerful too and one might just need another color/hue for contrast e.g. white. And then there is black which combined with turquoise can create an edgy, stylish look. And one can move into the world of prints but here the effect of turquoise might be lost when combined with reds, purples, violets. Imagine the turquoise dress, shirt worn on the beach. One doesn’t really need a red, purple contrast hue with it. There is also turquoise combined with a green hue. Yes turquoise can be merged with other colors/hues to create interesting prints but this is really another area completely.

Turquoise can be used for different social functions/gatherings/parties. There are obviously different types of occasions. There is the beach party, the afternoon gathering too and turquoise is ‘there for that’. Turquoise can be imagined as a ‘t-shirt’ color, a dress color but it can be used as the skirt color in a separate look with another hue for the top area.

So turquoise can be used to create the cool warrior look. Think of a cool warrior walking along the sea. Actually a cool ‘girl’ warrior look because in the fashion world, warriors are usually women. The cool warrior wears the cool turquoise. And the warrior wears a dress but there is an edginess about the look. It is an edgy warrior look. Maybe there is a short turquoise chemise dress. The shoulders are shown and there is a purity about the turquoise here The emphasis is on the effect turquoise brings across. Yes turquoise is one color that can be used to style apparel for the months of sun; the seasons of sun, spring and summer.

Believe it or not, women are not the only obsessed with handbags, earrings and necklaces. Watches have joined up on that fashion accessory ride as well. Watches can be worn by everyone, and usually, women prefer a slim instead of a big bulky gold watch, while men prefer the exact opposite. Most men normally wear big watches nowadays, and more specifically, either a silver or gold watch is the standard.

Nevertheless, the number of people wearing watches has decreased over time due to the increasing popularity of iPods and cell phones that have replaced them. Instead of wearing a watch, they can just have one of those with them and be aware of the time through them. Then again, the fact that they are no longer a necessity has pushed watches to become more of a fashion accessory than they ever were before.

Gold watches are really favored by men because they make them look wealthier than they really are. On the other hand, some men are wearing a gold watch that is actually made from gold, and in that case, chances are that they are rich. Just like women, men can spend a lot of money and time trying to find a beautiful watch that they can wear, because they too are into fashion accessories. Just like women, men want watches that will look good on them when they are wearing them.

Even though there is no specific way to find a watch that a man would like, there are not as many styles to choose from. The most popular men’s watches mainly come in either silver or gold, unlike women’s watches which may include hundreds or even thousands of different combinations. This makes men’s life a bit easier than women’s when it comes to choosing a watch.

Unfortunately, since people tend to wear less watches than before, unless if it’s for fashion, watch manufacturers are slowly losing their customers, and do not keep up with the latest fashion trends styles. I guess it all comes down to money right? If a gold watch manufacturer doesn’t sell as much anymore, why would they produce more? The good thing is that some women have started leaning towards men’s watches which basically increases the target market for watchmakers!

When it comes to the hottest in girls’ fashions for ages 2 to 6, mix and match is out and coordinated looks are in. This means girls who are styling have the bases covered from head to toe.

Getting a handle on just what coordinated means is a little tricky for parents who aren’t hip on the fashion scene. For an outfit to really dazzle, it needs to have a few extra components to make sure it’s done up just right. When the following special touches are included, here are some children’s designer clothing that fits the style trend to the letter:

  • Boutique dresses: Tops and bottoms or dresses. From pretty neutrals and bright pastels to funky prints, these need to offer a style that’s all their own. Tops and bottoms must match or complement extremely well to fit the trends in little girls’ style.
  • Hair accessories. Bandanas, bows, bands, hair ties and even kerchiefs need to complement the look. While after-the-fact accessory buys can work, the most standout of hairpieces match the tops, bottoms or dresses with the exact same colors or prints. Don’t underestimate the impact these have on tying a style all together.
  • Totes. Little girls just love little purses. When style matters, these absolutely have to match. After purchases work very well, especially when they’re designed to go with shoes. Still, there is something particularly distinct about totes and purses that match the materials of tops and bottoms.
  • Shoes, socks. Most coordinated fashions for girls 2 to 6 don’t come with footwear to match, but choosing carefully really tops off the look. Select colors that match or go with neutrals that fit and style.

Some of the hottest types coordinated fashions for children’s designer clothing include:

  • Camouflage outfits. Move over little boys, there are new commandos in town. Little girls just love adding their own style to camouflage. Add in a little lace, ribbons or bows and they’re ready to make a statement that’s all their own.
  • Fun and funky prints. Jungle, party, abstract prints and more are all on the in list along with much more. The bright and bolder, generally the better. When offset with the right coordinates, these really please the little girl who likes to stand out from the crowd.
  • Delicate patterns. Set in pastels and just barely noticeable, delicate patterns and prints make a subtle statement that’s just right for sophisticated tastes.
  • Spectacular solids with just the right embellishments. The sleek sophistication of solid colors is not missed in little girl trends. When the right embellishments are added, such as appliqués or ruffles, she’ll look like a princess.

Every year around this time all the Glam and Style magazines are a buzz as to what the designers unveiled at “fashion week”. 2007 seems to be no exception, as women everywhere want to know what fabrics, textures, colors and accessories are hot. Although spring has just begun, this article will discuss the new fashion styles already exploding on the scene.

With so many fashion designers out there, they don’t always seem to agree on all the new fashion styles presented on the runway. One thing they do agree on is the “preppy/prissy look”. To achieve this look, wear an Oxford shirt with either a tennis skirt (Yes! They are back in style) or a mini skirt (but not too MINI, so where as each step you take reveals what God gave you). If you really want to achieve this look, add a color coordinated tailored blazer. Topping the look off with a pair of strappy or chuncky sandals. For the more athletic look, wear a bright colored tank tee with a fresh pair of cool sneakers.

Another unanimous inclusion to this year’s fashion style is embellishment. Done the wrong way and embellished clothing spells DISASTER. The way to avoid this is by finding monochromatic pieces. This meaning clothing with diamond studs, beads, etcetera with a single color. Favorites the designers love are silver, copper and bronze. Most popular are the blouses or dresses adorned with crystals, beads or even edgy studs that move freely and flow fashionably on the body. When you find a blouse or a dress that is simply “to die for”, go for the total “glam look” by adding a pair of strappy or chunky high heels and a matching handbag.

Patent leather has resurfaced as another hot material. It’s popping up on more than just accessories this season. You can find patent leather coats, skirts, purses and shoes. The “new patent leather” gives a boost of high gloss finish anywhere it presents itself. However, you must keep in mind to make sure to keep it simple when wearing this material, so not to have it clash with other textures that are also on the scene.

Finally, the finishing touch….accessories. Statement jewels are all the rave this season. Showing up on everyone who is anyone, from New York, NY to Milan. Bangles on one or both wrists will make any ensemble you put on, sizzle with pizazz! (Most designers recommend gold, it never goes out of style) If bangles aren’t for you, you may feel more comfortable in a big bold necklace with matching earrings (something with spring colors that compliment what you are wearing). Embellished handbags are always a bonus.

These are just SOME of the new fashion styles hitting all major and minor department stores worldwide. With all the different designers, styles, prints, textures and colors, it’s enough to have you feeling overwhelmed. With a little time and practice, you be able to pick out the perfect ensemble and accessories in an instant! A guarantee to feel as beautiful as you will look!!

In a world extraordinarily focused on outward appearance, we need only to open a magazine or turn on our televisions to see the latest and greatest fashion trend; it walks the red carpet, checks out a movie premier, and heads out nightly to the hottest restaurants. And we, as a society always mindful of what’s popular, follows dutifully along, eager to purchase the “must have” item of the season. But, ultimately, the fashion style that works best for us is that which looks good on our particular body and reflects our very individual personality.

As anyone who follows the fashion industry will tell you, trends come and go. What is one year’s hot item is the next season’s fashion “don’t.” Designers present their newest lines and before you know it stores are carrying these clothes in every conceivable variation. And then, just as quickly, they’re gone. It’s almost impossible to keep pace. Luckily, the fashion style that makes the most sense on an individual level is the fashion style that reflects who we are as people; and that never goes out of style.

The most important thing to remember is that just because a particular fashion style is popular at the moment does not mean that it will look good on your particular body. Wearing something just for the sake of wearing it ultimately goes against the principles of fashion. A fashion style that you choose to wear should be something that accentuates your positives, downplays your negatives, and complements the overall line of your body.

Take the time to get to know your body and what styles work best with it. Assess your body objectively; if you have trouble spots, look for cuts and fabrics that camouflage what you need them to camouflage; if you are on the shorter side, look for a fashion style that elongates your body; and always choose colors that complement your skin tone.

Once you find a style that works – stick with it and add your personal touches to reflect your personality; that is the best fashion style you can possibly wear.

There are quite a few varieties of fashion shoe and handbag styles, but some are better known than others. Coach shoes and handbags are among the more well-known, and some of the other famous brands include Yves Saint Laurent and Marc Jacobs. Status handbags are more expensive than others, but designer handbags are something that many women like to splurge on, to make themselves feel good.

Marc Jacobs tweed bags show that the 80’s can still be fun if we remember them fondly. This company truly understands the retro influence on fashion, and each creation is proof that Jacobs is a quirky genius as a designer.

Muse bags are made by Yves Saint Laurent, and they make many accessories as well, for women looking for a chic flair. Muse merges different styles into feminine and unique bags and accessories that are sure to compliment women’s active lifestyles. These bags are playful and a little sexy, and they make handbags in many different sizes.

Coach is possibly the best known designer of handbags and shoes. Coach heels and Coach boots are among the most highly favored of the designer shoes available, and this brand combines logic and magic to create shoes and handbags that are obviously made of quality materials with good value and an American style that is distinctive and inspirational. Each pair of Coach sneakers or Coach heels reflects the attributes of the Coach brand.

Coach shoes are not normally available at discount prices, because they are top sellers without needing to lower prices. They offer excellent service that will make sure your needs as a customer are met. They treat customers buying Coach shoes like guests, and they like to establish relationships for the long term, based on satisfaction and trust.

Designer shoes like Coach heels are symbols of design and luxury in one. Amid the many brands available, it’s no mistake that so many people clamor for Coach shoes. Seldom seen at a discount, they are nonetheless snatched up at a fast pace.

The success of Coach shoes and Coach boots, as well as their well-known handbags, shows off their devotion to fairness and honesty, as concerning their own business as well as the communities they are located in. The company stands behind Coach shoes, Coach sneakers and handbags, because they realize that their reputation is reflected in everything they make.

You can find Coach boots and Coach heels at retail stores and sites online. Originally their handbags were made from the same leather used for baseball gloves. Now there are so many styles of Coach shoes, too, that you are never at a loss, regardless of the occasion. They use other materials in addition to leather now, to craft their fine Coach boots and Coach shoes. Available in every fabric and style you might want, Coach shoes are the toast of the town. While their most current collection tends to show off many casual espadrilles, flip-flops and sandals, you can also find the Coach name on excellently-designed sandals and stilettos. You’ll never go wrong wearing the Coach name.

From every perspective, bracelets are absolutely great adornments for fashion conscious women to make their fashion statement and infuse their personal styles with new vitality. Great bracelets can help to set you apart from the crowd. With the embellishment of gorgeous bracelets, your old outdated outfit may even obtain new glamour beyond your expectation.

Over the years, the designs and styles of bracelets have evolved a lot. Apart from the traditional silver and gold bracelets, you can also find leather wristbands, wood bangles and many other bracelets made from unique materials of distinct styles. Nowadays, personalized or customized wristbands are really popular. People like to attach pendants carrying special meaningful notes to the bracelets as their lucky wristband.

Bracelets can help to highlight one’s personality greatly. Just like clothes or any other fashion accessories, stunning bracelets do have the ability to make you stand out in the crowd and make a deep impression on others. For example, rock and roll style bracelets can reflect your bold characters and funky fashion attitude.

Generally speaking, chunky jewelry is in trend this season, while there are still many people who show their constant passion for subtle and tiny jewelry. No matter whether it is a chunky style or tiny style, it is really chic to wear several pieces of bracelets together at the same time.

You must believe that gorgeous bracelets can add great fancies to your outfit and do you a great favor to become the center of attention. However, when you select the bracelets, you should still stick to your own preference and personal style.

Have you ever wondered what a style icon is? Can a style icon actually be a fashion victim, someone who cannot help but follow all the trends all the time? This couldn’t be further from the truth! They are actually women who have the whole package: fashion style, personality and confidence. Such a person doesn’t ever follow a fashion trend but creates them.

In our days being a style icon means much more than having good taste. What you wear seems to be less important than how you wear it. But back in time style icons helped us shape the way we think about fashion and style.

One of the ladies that has re-written the book of fashion is Gabrielle “Coco” Channel. Not only has she dazzled the whole world with her creations but she is responsible for the famous “little black dress” and her famous perfume, among many other things. Jackie Kennedy might have had a tormented life but her fashion style was way ahead of her time. She was among the first women who wore jackets designed by Coco Channel with a simple pair of jeans. Another important style icon that has impressed the audience not only because of her slender figure and pixie haircut but by the simple and yet fabulous way she wore even the most common outfits is Audrey Hepburn.

In our days the style icons are many but among the first that come to mind are: Kate Moss, Michelle Obama and Sarah Jessica Parker. Their styles can be adopted by almost every woman. Having a style of their own these three powerful women are not afraid to express their personalities through the outfits that they put together. Kate Moss is famous for her sexy clothes as she can be seen wearing short pants and leather jackets most of the time when she goes out. SJP on the other hand opts for glamorous and romantic clothes that impress everyone on the red carpet. Because most of the time she appears at official meetings, Michelle Obama chooses to dress elegant and yet casual and practical. Her choice in clothes is admirable and can be an inspiration for most women.

Fashion is relative and it is the way you wear the clothes that matters. Trusting your instincts is something that you should do at all times. You can create wonderful and original outfits by choosing to wear the things that you look and feel great it!

There is no doubt regarding the assertion that jewelry can make a grand gift for special occasions. It’s is also no wonder why this time-honored custom of giving fine and fashion jewelry pieces is welcomed and cherished, as symbols of love, thoughtfulness and appreciation. Jewelry watches are one of the most thoughtful and practical of such gifts of jewelry that you can give.

The smart and wise gift giver is able to make their gift do double duty when they select a watch for the recipient. A wonderful watch that is embellished with precious metals and high-quality gemstones expresses a sentiment of caring and provides an opportunity to display that sentiment with a bit of show and style.

Indeed, such a gift will also be appreciated because it is useful, as well as adding a bit of bling to the recipient’s ensemble. For women, a white gold watch face surrounded by white, sparkling cut diamonds is a good choice. For the modern man, perhaps the black diamond, interfused with smaller white diamonds would be a perfect, avant-garde choice.
rue of the many styles and designs that obviously strive to give people the maximum amount of attention getting flash and sparkle that is so often sought out these days, by people who love to display their bling in a big way.

There is such a huge selection of styles, brands, colors, embellishments and size in watches that sometimes it can make it difficult to decide on the right one. If you are planning to buy a fashion jewelry watch for someone as a gift, then try to get some clues from them, which might make it a bit easier for you to decide which one to purchase.

When shopping for watches for someone else, try to think about the type of fine jewelry you see them wearing on a regular basis. Once you can envision their various costume jewelry or diamond jewelry pieces that they typically wear, you will have a clearer idea of their personal taste and style and can tailor your selection to match their collection.

Another great way to get some ideas about which watches might be among the top picks for your gift giving is to find an opportunity before the special occasion to visit a jewelry store together. Observe what they respond to most and which styles they seem to be most attracted to and what brings a real smile to their face when they touch and handle timepieces.

You will be able to gather a lot clues in this way. If you can’t find a way to get to the store together, then just thumbing through a catalog of fashion jewelry or browsing some internet sites will also reveal the same information if you pay attention.

You don’t have to wait around for someone to think about giving you a jewelry watch as a gift. Many people like to indulge themselves with jewelry watches simply to spruce up the wardrobe or to increase their fine jewelry collection. At the same time, these stunning timepieces are a great way to treat yourself with something nice that you know you deserve.

When you are out buying clothes for yourself not only do you want to know about what kind of clothing is in style, but you also need to find out about what is not in style. Avoiding the clothing that is not in style is easy to do, if you know what to avoid. What you need to remember is that it is not just an article of clothing that needs to be avoided in general, sometimes the piece of clothing can be worn fashionably, but there are certain things you want to avoid wearing it with.

One thing that you need to avoid is wearing high waisted jeans or any kind of high waisted pants. One of the reasons that you want to avoid these types of pants is because of how high up they go, if your belly button is pierced, it can rub against the piercing that can become very uncomfortable. Another problem is if you have any kind of bloating going on this style of pants can make the bloating seem even worse than it is, which is not very flattering at all.

Something else that you need to avoid doing is wearing a white bra with a white shirt. This needs to be avoided because you can clearly see the white bra under the white shirt; in fact, the white bra really stands out under the white shirt because the lines of the bra show directly through the shirt. When wearing a white shirt you will want to wear a nude colored bra so that the bra does not show as easily.

Not only do you need to think about the color bra you are wearing but you also need to think about the type of panties that you are wearing. With jeans you can wear just about any style of panties that you want, but stay away from thongs that stick up from the back of your jeans because it does not look very attractive. If you are wearing white pants you want to avoid wearing dark colored panties or even panties with designs on them because they will show directly through the pants. Your best choice is to wear a nude color rather than white because it will blend in better than the white will.

What you wear on your feet is also important. The worst thing you can do is wear any kind of socks with sandals, and depending on the style of sandal, you might want to avoid nylons. Thong-toed sandals or shoes should be worn without socks or nylons, while open toed and closed toed should be worn with nylons or socks. White socks with black shoes also need to be avoided.

More and more women love to use tote bags, because of their practicality and fashionable style. Usually, tote bags are designed to be in large size, which can enable people to carry more things that you may happen to buy at the supermarkets apart from basic personal necessities. For daily use, totes are top choices for women to create trendy and fashionable styles.

Generally speaking, leather is the most preferable material used to make totes. With the material of leather, the quality of the bags can be firmly ensured. Since totes are supposed to carry many things from personal stuff to unexpected items bought anywhere, the quality and durability should be seriously reliable. On the other hand, when you are buying a tote, you need to check the straps to see whether they are made of real leather and whether they can bear the weight of heavy things. If the straps fail to meet the needs, the quality of the bag should be questioned. Sometimes, you can also find tote handbags are made from cotton or canvas.

The design of totes can vary a lot. Still, regarding the practical purpose, many totes are designed with several pockets inside and outside, some with zips on them. Some totes have adjustable straps, which provide great convenience to busy women. The straps of bags in different styles are attached to the bags in different ways, some with the use of clasps and some with buckles.

Without doubt, designer totes always turn out to be top choices for women. You will have no worries about both the style and quality. However, even though the bag is flawless in design and style, you should be careful with the pairing. Only when you pair the bag with the outfit in proper way will the whole style become eye-popping.

We usually don’t associate any kind of jewelry with men. When we think about jewelry we always think about the female gender and how they love to adorn themselves with ornaments. However, we have seen that as of lately men have started showing an interest in rings, especially in gold rings. Previously, they used to wear only gold rings on their engagements or on their weddings. But now, gold rings are worn to many formal and informal occasions and it has become more of a fashion statement, not merely an obligation or sign of marriage. Gold rings, due to the rising gold prices worldwide, are usually worn by the upper class, rich people in society. These people can afford to wear gold rings for almost every occasion. But if we look at the average man, a man owns at least one ring for himself.

Even though gold is such an expensive metal, it truly hasn’t been replaced by any other metal. There are a lot of reasons behind this, cultural being the main one. In this article we will be taking a look at the different kinds of gold rings for men in terms of design and we will also be emphasizing on how the variety of rings for men keeps increasing every day. Gold is a very popular choice for men’s rings. However, there is not just one kind of gold that is used in making rings for men. Although yellow gold seems to be used more often, there is white gold and rose gold, which is sometimes used in making rings for men. White gold is more commonly known as platinum and it is much more expensive in terms of price. It gives off a very white look, something that is similar to the shine of extremely well polished silver. Rose gold, on the other hand, has a slightly pinkish color to it (not too much) we don’t see many rings made out of rose gold, but it is used in several rings.

Gold rings, or perhaps any kind of gold jewelry, are not made out of 100% gold. It is almost always mixed with another metal, to make it stronger. We often hear the term carats when we’re shopping for gold jewelry and these carats tell us about how pure the ring is i.e. how pure it is. Usually, the higher the carats, the more gold the ring contains. For everyday use and to keep the affordability factor in mind, 10 to 14 carat rings are suitable for men. There are some rings which are gold-plated but we don’t recommend you to buy those, even if they are cheaper, because once the plating comes off, the metal is not as glossy as it was before.

There are many designs available in the gold rings. There are plain designs like the simple band and there are more complicated designs available in stores. Popularly, gold rings men have plain deigns like the simple wedding band, but now some gold rings have carvings and other designs engraved in them too. The use of stones in the rings is also popular, with different kinds of stones; precious and semi- precious, are used on the rings. There are some rings that have a ribbed design on them. You can either buy ready-made gold rings from stores or over the internet, but if you’re looking for something unique, you can have rings specifically made for yourself in your size and chosen design as well.

Is your style the right one for you or are you trying to copy the magazine or a celebrity? A lot of women today have this dilemma because we live in a world where fashion style dictates who you are in the society. The world is changing so fast and the fashion trends are also adjusting every now and then. With a variety of fashionable items to choose from, creating your own personal style is not an easy task to do. You also need to take into consideration the kind of personality you want your viewers to convey about your fashion statement. Dressing your own style of fashion is not only to blend in the crowd but also to express more of yourself and be confident of your personality. Your own personal fashion style is your own personal brand of your own interests, aspirations, desires and lifestyle.

The following are some tips to consider when creating your own fashion statement:

  • Before trying something, try to scrutinize various fashion trends from different sources like magazines, television, advertising materials and the internet. You must know how to gather data to be able to investigate what you really want in your fashion style. You need to know how these trends are being collected so that you will have a better idea about the basics of fashion. From these concepts, you can mix and match and can create a clearer picture of your personal style.
  • Do not try to copy fashion statements of celebrities or friends because their own trend may not be the perfect style for you. Only buy items that best represent you as a person. Focus more on the clothing you wear and feel good about being yourself.
  • Venture on different styles. You can try different dresses and experiment on your own closet. Walking in front of a mirror or taking a picture of yourself can help you. By doing this, you will know what are the styles you want to keep or change. You need to remember that loving the items you wear boosts your self esteem.
  • There are several accessories you need to consider. Try to find the perfect accessory that will complement your outfit. Don’t go for accessory items just because they are a popular trend in your society. You need to realize that accessories are also important in creating your own personal brand.
  • The right hairstyle and make up is also a must in making your own style. Try to consider the shape of your face in selecting the perfect hairstyle. Be conscious about the right blend of make up for the right occasion.

Organizing your fashion statement involves risk. Don’t be afraid to take that risk. Inspire yourself with personalities you admire in the fashion world. Through this, you will be able to discover the true and unique person that’s within you.

A cat that scratches is a cat that was not taught as a kitten that scratching was unacceptable. If your cat is scratching whenever you try to play with him you need to learn how to teach your cat not to scratch.

One of the ways how to teach a cat not to scratch your home furniture is to simply show him that you won’t play with him when he scratches. If you are playing with him and he scratches you tell him “no” firmly and then ignore him until he calms down. Once he settles down you can resume playing as long as he continues to behave and does not scratch.

Another way how to teach a cat not to scratch is by playing dead. If he scratches your hand or foot because it is moving then immediately hold it still, not moving it at all. His attention will soon turn to something else. Do this consistently and he will soon learn that it is no fun to scratch at you.

Giving your cat a good squirt or water from a clean spray bottle is another good way how to train a cat not to scratch. Cats don’t like being squirted with water and he will soon learn to associated getting sprayed with his scratching.

In cases where the cat is scratching at the furniture and not you, giving him a scratching post and awarding him whenever he uses it will encourage him to use the post instead of your furniture. If you combine the reward for using the post with a negative reward when he scratches the furniture he will soon choose to the post and get the positive reward.

Note: Using a negative reward to teach a cat not to scratch furniture can include a Spitz with clean water or placing tinfoil which cats don’t like around your furniture legs until he learns to use his scratching post.

Taxi services are a common way to travel through Israel. There are many benefits to using a taxi as your main transportation method when you visit the country. Some of these benefits include affordability, comfortable cars, frequent arrivals and departures and easy to locate. There are two different types of taxi service which are currently available in Israel and these two types will be discussed below.

Special Taxi (the private taxi)

When most people think of a taxi they think of the special taxi. Also known as a private taxi, the special taxi in Israel will pick up you and only you (and your friends if you so desire) and then transport you to your destination. The special taxi runs on a meter, as required by law, and has a price scale which makes payment issues much less common. When you get into a special taxi you can rest assured that you will only pay what the meter registers, no more and no less. The special taxi is easy to spot on the road as it is a bright white color with orange numbers which show the taxi registration number. If you need to get a special taxi, simply catch one on the street that drives by or call ahead. Your taxi driver may even provide you with a glimpse into the city but make sure that they are registered with the Ministry of Tourism (ask to see ID/photo badge) if they try to give you a full tour of the city.

Service Taxi (monit sherut)

The service taxi known as a monit sherut is a larger taxi which carries many people at once. These taxis are typically minibuses and can hold around 10 people on average. The monit sherut will drive around town picking up passengers as it goes. Since it is a larger vehicle and money needs to be made along the way, the monit sherut driver will usually wait a while until their bus is full. This may take a ½ hour at times so if you are in a crunch to get somewhere, it may be wise to settle on a special taxi. On the bright side, you are often able to find a monit sherut at all hours of the night which is great for those night owls. Service taxis are prevalent in most of the main cities such as Eilat, Haifa, Netanya, Nahariya and more. If you are hoping to travel on the holiday, keep in mind that service taxis often operate on these days. The monit sherut provides an affordable option and is the less expensive of the two taxi services.

Both the special taxi and service taxi will get you from your location to your main destination. It is just a matter of whether you want the privacy of the special taxi or the affordability of the service taxi. Also keep in mind where you have to go and what time of day you are traveling to your destination as this could make a difference as to which taxi service you choose to use.

Searching for an apartment in the biggest City in the country is a daunting task; whether you are new to NYC or a 12 year veteran like me, you will need thick skin to navigate this concrete jungle! Let me start with my personal experience.

I am originally from Portland, OR, I moved to the Big Apple back in 1998. My first 5 months living in New York were spent living out of a hotel because I had a hard time finding a place. My original intentions were to stay at my hotel for 2 weeks, but I had to extend my stay since I grossly underestimated the difficulty of finding a decent apartment in New York. Now after 12 years and 7 moves I consider myself an expert in New York City apartment hunting and now I will share the knowledge I have accumulated over the years of searching for apartments by myself or using a broker.

This article is a guide that will help make the process of finding an apartment in this “crazy city” easier, more efficient and less confusing (it might even save you a couple of dollars in the process). It is all laid out in an easy to follow 6-step process.

Step 1: Figure Out What Neighborhood You Want To Live In!

This may seem like the easy part because you obviously want to be in an area that is convenient, trendy and safe, however you will soon figure out nothing is that easy in New York City. You need to determine what neighborhood fits your personality/life style and at the same time determine what kind of space/amenities you will need. For example you may work in the East Village and love the energy there but are you willing to pay the steep price tag for a “shoe box”(and by “shoe box” I mean a tiny apartment) in a run down building that is a 4th floor walk-up. Do you feel comfortable living in an area where it’s a constant party scene every night?

A book that is an amazing source of info for the ins & outs of every neighborhood is the NFT (Not For Tourist) guide of New York City. You can buy this in any Barns & Noble and make sure it is the most up to date version because there is a new version every year. Another great way of getting to know a neighborhood is by Googling it. With an endless source of information in cyber space why not take advantage of it. If you prefer doing it the old fashion way, taking a stroll through the neighborhood, go for it! But make sure you have your trusty NFT guide with you so you can spot the important things.

Step 2: Determine What You Are Willing To Sacrifice

In your apartment search you are going to have to sacrifice something whether it be size, location or amenities. You are going to have to prepare yourself mentally and emotionally because the grim reality is the perfect apartment doesn’t exist (unless you have an unlimited budget) The general rule of thumb in New York is the further uptown you go the bigger and cheaper the apartments will be. The further downtown you go the smaller and more expensive it will be.

You need to determine what is most important to you within your unique budget and find that middle ground. My advice, is if you find an apartment that is 70-80% ideal, take it, because the pickier you are the harder the search will be! I learned this the hard way a longtime ago and you do not want to get stuck chasing around that “magical apartment”. Yes, it is possible you might get lucky and find that perfect apartment but so is hitting the jackpot in the lottery!

Step 3: Determine What You Can Afford And If Your Budget Is Realistic

Once you have an idea of which neighborhoods you prefer to live in, now you have to determine if your a budget is realistic. Determine what is the average price for an apartment for those neighborhoods. How? I recommend going to a website called apartmenthero. This website will provide current market averages for every size apartment rental in every neighborhood in the city. Results are usually pretty accurate but sometimes they can be a little off, about plus or minus $300. When you first enter the site you will be prompted to enter information to compare your current apartment to the current market rate. If you’re a “newbie” and do not have an apartment yet, go to the right column of the website, click on “average rents in Manhattan”. Another great way is to do your own research on nytimes. I find that nytimes rental listings are much more accurate and up to date, as opposed to Craigslist and other sites where there are tons of bait & switch scams.

Next, determine what you can afford, landlord’s make this part easy because to qualify for most apartments in the Big Apple, you need to have a good credit standing (650 or above), earn a yearly household income of 40-50 times your monthly rent and if you don’t, then you need a guarantor. He or she needs to earn 80-100 times the monthly rent. For example the average one bedroom apartment in East Village is about $2,300 -$2,600 per month; you will need annual household income of $92,000 to qualify and a guarantor, would need a yearly income of $184,000 minimum.

Step 4: Timing Is EVERYTHING

I have a good friend whose ex-wife worked as a real estate agent for eight years. When they were still together, I had the unique opportunity of getting some great tips on how to look for an apartment in New York. The most impacting tip she gave me was that timing is everything. New York is unlike any city in the country when it comes to this, in most cities you generally start your apartment search two or sometimes three months before your move out date. In New York the market moves so fast that most landlords want to sign leases immediately after your application is accepted. At the very most, you have a month to search, the best deals generally come out the first week of the month or the third week of the month. Approximately 70% of the listings in the first week of the month are for movers moving on the 15th, 30% are meant for movers moving at the beginning of the next month.

Make sure you secure an apartment at least 1 1/2 week prior to when you want keys! My advice is you only need 5 days (sometimes less) to find an apartment. The first 2 days should be getting to know what’s out there, the 3rd and 4th day should be narrowing down your search and 5th day should be getting your paperwork together & submitting your application. With every rule there are exceptions, if you find an amazing place that is 95% ideal on your 3rd or 2nd day do not hesitate, take it! What is great to you is more then likely great to most apartment hunters. The vacancy rate in Manhattan is usually around 1-2% so there will be always more people looking for apartments then there are availability.

Step 5: Determine What Strategy You Will Use To Find Your “New Home”

This decision can make or break you depending on your situation. There are two ways to go about finding an apartment in New York City, you can do it the easy/expensive way and hire a broker to find you a place or you can do it the hard/affordable way by doing it yourself. I personally have done it both ways and it all depends on what you are looking for and what is your situation. Here are the benefits of both methods:

Benefits of doing it yourself

1) You will save MONEY!!!

-Broker fees are expensive; they range from 1-month rent to 15% of the annual rent. If the broker has an exclusive on the listing, you will likely have to pay 15%

2) You avoid shady money hungry brokers

-Lets face it in every industry there are bad apples and the real estate industry is no exception.

3) You will learn the City

-With all the walking you will be doing you will get to know the city better then you ever have before.

4) You’ll be in better shape when your done

-You will be in better cardiovascular shape because you will be walking a ton! So you better have on some comfortable sneakers.

Benefits of using a Broker

1) Faster and more efficient

-Your apartment search will be less time consuming and more efficient because brokers have access to thousands of listings you will never have access to and can show you a bunch in one shot.

2) Avoid outdated listings

-Websites like Craigslist, Renthop & Apartments.com are flawed and poorly regulated and most of their listings are barely updated. Brokers listings are updated daily because they have direct contact with the landlord

3) Brokers know what a landlord wants

-Each landlord in the city has their own preferences and application requirements. Brokers know what each landlord is looking for in a tenant; this can save you time, heartache and expensive application fees.

4) You will have access to more Apartments

-Approximately 41% of available listings in New York are only accessible through brokers. These types of listings are called “broker protected listings”, the land lord will only take applications represented by a broker.

Step 6: Here Are Some Great Tips

1) Talk to a Doorman

-If you do decide to try doing it yourself talking to doormen is a great way to find an apartment. Doormen not only have info to the building they are working in but to other buildings the landlord may own.

2) More is not always better

-If you do decide to use a broker, more than one broker at a time is not always better. Brokers have almost all the same listings because most listing are open. For example if you call ten brokers and give them your detailed description of what you are looking for there is a distinct possibility you will be shown the same apartments. At the same time you should not limit yourself and work with one broker, you might be missing out, because some brokers have exclusive listings. My advice is, you should only use three brokers and if you find one that you feel is competent and trustworthy, stick with him/her.

3) Use NakedApartments

-This website gives you the ability to not only look for rental listings while discreetly contacting brokers/landlords but you can give them a review if you had a bad or good experience. You can also look at the reviews of other brokers or landlords before you decide to contact them.

4) Don’t be afraid to negotiate a broker fee

-Most brokers would rather negotiate and get the deal done then risk having the next broker showing the apartment and rent it before him/her. Do not get carried away, no broker will take less then a month. Remember if the apartment is an exclusive listing you will have no leverage for negotiations.
