One Shoulder Top & Flared Pants

My all black look today is dramatic and sophisticated while been edgy at the same time. The one shoulder top is simple and fitted which balances the proportion of the flared pants.

Trending – Faux Fur

Animal-rights activists are partly responsible for many people turning away from wearing real fur. Because of public awareness campaigners, more people are hesitant to wear real fur either, because of ethical reasons (killing animals for their fur) or fear of being called out. Some designers ( Vivienne Westwood, Armani, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger) renounced using real fur in their collections…

Bras – The Foundation For A Smooth Silhouette

Wearing the right type of bra is the foundation to achieve that perfect streamlined look. Buy the right size bra and don’t squeeze into a smaller cup size which only causes over-spill. We don’t want that! If you don’t know your correct size, then it’s time to get measured.
