Ban Satin Forever

Screen Shot 2013-07-02 at 11.11.24 AM

This should be proof positive that designers should ban satin forever, except in limited amounts. Even beautiful models who are slim and fit, look two sizes larger in a satin gown. These two photos were taken only months apart.

Long Skirts Look Rigid and Dated

Screen Shot 2013-06-27 at 2.56.38 PM

  Amazingly, long skirts continue to be seen. In spite of the fact that they create a long, rigid line, which makes a woman seem stiff as well as less approachable. If you want to cover your legs, It’s better to wear pants instead. At least pants permit the hourglas shape of a woman’s body …

You Don’t Know What You Look Good In

The book the fashion industry doesn’t want you to read

The most revolution book on color since 1830.

There’s a revolutionary new book coming out in late April. It contains scientifically-proven evidence that you don’t know what you look good in. Nor does anyone in the fashion industry. They don’t want you to know the truth, because they know you’ll no longer be at the whim of fleeting color and style trends. You’ll …

Michelle + Anne in Fuchsia

Sandy Dumont discusses candidates' wives in Hot Pink

Both the First Lady and Mrs. Romney look beautiful and elegant. Mrs. Obama is more formal with her long-sleeve jacket – a change …

Obama vs. Romney- Style Matters

PresidentiaDebate

President Obama was the clear winner in terms of style. A red tie always conveys power. However, the darker the color the higher the authority, so the dark red tie conveyed very high authority. Add to that the formal-looking small repeating dots, and you’ve got a Presidential look that conveys immediate confidence and authority. Romney …
