Here we are in the heat of the holidays – so much joy and financial stress at the same time. You have probably been invited to a gathering or two, and You have nothing to wear and a limited budget, right? No worries! Stay upbeat!
You CAN pull together a great ‘look” by working with what you DO have!
Go through your closet and look for the black dress, a pair of black pants, a skirt and a black turtleneck. If you don’t have ‘the little black dress,’ you’ll make the most of your skirt or pant and your black top. You can create a very sleek, sexy, chic holiday statement…without breaking the bank. It’s ALL about the accessories!
Think about one solid color as YOUR ‘POP” color! You are going to create your own look by using ‘black’ as your foundation color and one other color as your ‘statement’. Your ‘Pop’ color can be added in your purse, scarf, shoe, boot, or jewelry. Use 3 accessories of your liking to add the color. Choose a brilliant, dramatic color such as: Scarlet Red, Emerald Green, Cobalt Blue, Hot Magenta or another favorite color. Many of the “Big Box” and discount retailers have great trend accessories. Scarves, necklaces, earrings, purses all for under $20! One favorite is “Meijer”.
If you’re not sure how to ‘pull together’ this fashion statement – Do a little research and have a look at : WhiteHouseBlackMarket.com. Their fashion statement is all about white or black as the foundation color and adding an exciting, accent color for the ultimate, visual pizazz! It’s a very uncluttered, sophisticated, expensive look.
And, THIS IS “The Look” we are trying to achieve!
Play up your lips with a complimenting, vibrant hue and add a shimmer gloss. A ‘smokey eye’ looks great with this style.
“Wet n Wild” has great sheer and metallic glosses as well as eye shadow compacts all for under $5.
Before getting ready for the evening…
- Make a simple, kitchen scrub utilizing sugar and olive oil.
- Combine in an air tight, plastic container.
- Shower and slough away dead skin cells, while bringing renewed radiance to your skin.
