From Plain Jane to VaVoom

It’s funny how a few accessories can take a plain dress into the realm of ‘Wow, where are you off to?’.  It doesn’t take any effort to hang a necklace around your neck and put a bracelet on your wrist yet the results can be quite powerful.  

Think of it this way.  Which cupcakes are more appealing to you?

ImageMy bet is the second picture.  Icing cupcakes is a lot more labor-intensive than throwing on a few accessories.  So next time you head out, take 5 seconds to throw your ‘icing’ on.

The Worst Mistakes You Can Make When Going to the Races.

1. Wearing a dress that is too short. Ladies do not show their undies (or lack of in some cases).

Image

2.  Showing too much cleavage –  you don’t want to look like a hooker.

Image

3.  Wearing a hat that is out of proportion with your body. A large one will make you look like a mushroom.

Image

4.  Wearing every piece of jewellery that you own, often ‘less is more’.

Image

5.  Shoes.  Hmmmm.  Sky high numbers that you have never worn should never be trialled at the races. Take band-aides and ballet flats as back up.

Image

6.Drinking on an empty stomach.

Image

7.  Drinking too much too soon and missing the big race.

Image        Image

8.  Not taking panadol in your handbag.  Alcohol = Headache.

Image

9.  Chewed nails.  Fork out for a manicure.

Image

10. Straggly hair. Take the time to make it neat and presentable.

Image

11.  Wearing too much make up.

Image

12.  Not wearing enough make up.

Image

13.  Overdoing the fake tan. Hello little Oompa Loompa!

Image

14.  Losing your handbag.

Image

15.  Hmmmm.  Maybe you can help by posting some mistakes commonly made at the races…….

Every outfit or clothing you choose to wear reflects your personality; but sometimes you just feel overwhelmed and don’t know what colors look good next to each other. Matching colours is a matter of personal choice, yet a few tips of how relationships between colours work could help you create your very own style.

The Colour Wheel

The color wheel

The colour wheel shows the relationships between colours considered to be primary, secondary and tertiary.
Primary colours are red, yellow and blue.
When you mix any two primary colours in equal measure, you obtain a secondary colour. Mixing red and blue gives purple, blue and yellow creates green and yellow and red gives orange. So, secondary colours are: green, orange and purple.
A tertiary colour is made by mixing one secondary with its adjacent primary colour. Yellowish green is a tertiary color.
When talking about matching colorus there are two basic relationships:
Analogous colours are the ones sitting side-by-side on the color wheel and they usually work with one another. When matched the result is very nice as these colours are relatives and have little contrast. For example blue’s analogous colours are green and purple, while red and green are orange’s analogous colors.

Colours opposite to each other on the colour wheel are complementary colours. When matched they contrast and intensify each other. Purple is complementary to yellow, blue to orange, red to green etc. But the reverse is always applicable.

How to match colours

  • White and black are not considered as being colours, as they are much less present in nature. Both black and white can be matched with any other colour.
  • Grey is neutral, consequently it can also be matched with any colour.
  • It’s advisable not to wear more than 3 colours in the same outfit to maintain a coordinated look and avoid looking like a clown. In order to have a good result or if you are in doubt, use the colour wheel to help you choose the colours. But remember: Less is more”.
  • An outfit must have only one dominant colour.
  • Adding one complementary colour allows to temper (tone down) another colour.
  • Try using more sober (dull) colours for the parts where you want to look thinner.
  • Vivid colours (neon) are better for the upper part of the body because they light up your face.
