This lady is well recognized for bringing forth the vintage style of dressing and being able to keep up her style statement amidst this fast changing fashion world.

In her book, “Burlesque and the Art of Teese” she has quoted that “I advocate glamour. Every day. Every minute. If I am chilled, I nuzzle a fur stole. I pull steamed stockings over my gams”.

From a tanned blonde Californian girl, she transformed herself into a pale skinned dark haired girl creating a miraculous impression in the world of fashion. She has made her name innumerable times in the list of best dressed girls and also spotted frequently in the first row of fashion shows. She has made her appearances in the Los Angeles Fashion Week, Milan Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week.

Her style statements have spoken about the importance of a seamed stocking and its advantages or even about the alarming shade of red lipstick as how it can increase our confidence.

Her makeup collections, “Classics” have recreated the burlesque performer’s retro look and also showed the correct way of applying makeup that can create the right tone of vintage style from different eras.

She is an epitome of grace, modesty and elegance with a style that can be fit into different eras. One of her famous quotes was, “Vintage might be a faze but you will see me dress like this in my 80’s”. In this world of ever changing fashion trends, the style seeped in by Dita von Teese continues to be graced and appreciated by women from different corners of the world.

Friday, September 14th, 2012

Choose the Right Wedding VeilWeddings are known as one of the most memorable days in our life. And, you cannot let it go just like any other day of your life. Therefore choosing the perfect outfit is obvious! We often speak a lot about the wedding gowns but even the veil carries immense importance in the bridal outfit. The wedding veil is a prominent feature of the wedding attire for a lady. The history of a wedding veil dates back to centuries where it was worn as a protection from evil spirits.

These days’ brides have a lot many choices to make in regards to the type or a style of a veil that they can choose to wear. The veil gives an overall look to the bride and thus is an important accessory of the wedding outfit.

A few things to remember, while choosing your wedding veil:

Firstly, of course the veil must compliment your dress. Like, if your dress has a low backline, then you need to choose a veil that is long and covers the backline. In case, if you have selected a detailed dress then you can try a simple veil. On the other hand if you have chosen a simple gown then you can opt to wear a highly decorative gown. Gowns with an embellished bust panel then see to it that the veil does not detract from it. There are a few more additional factors while choosing a veil:

Length

A short veil is suggested for dresses with a high neck decoration. Veils like a bird cage will be a suitable one for this.

Shoulder length veils are about 20 inches and such veils are suited for dresses that have a lower back, and a waist detail.

Veils of elbow length are 25 inches long and would fall around your elbows. Such kind of veils will look lovely with the long ball gowns where in you can see the fullness of the skirt from the place where the veil ends.

The most common length for a veil is 36 inches and this length is suitable for a majority of gowns.

A knee length veil would be around 45 inches long and suitable and more suitable with mid calf wedding dresses.

Another one is the floor length veil. This type of veil is 72 inches long and will brush the floor and look lovely on floor length dresses.

Chapel length veils are 90 inches long and look fantastic when paired with the train like dress.

Finally, it’s the cathedral veil that measures 120 inches long. These veils measure up to 9 feet on the ground and they look beautiful when worn with a classic full length dress.

Tiers:

Veils also come in tiers like one, two or three tiers and tiered veils prove excellent to give a sophisticated look.

Two and three tiered veils look excellent with romantic dresses or dresses with classic lines.

Multiple tiered veils look good, if the bride has a simple hair style for the tiers tend to cover the hair.

Veil Widths

There are three widths of veil and each of it is known to create a degree of fullness at the sides. The veil with the least fullness is of 54 inches both at the side and top. It will hang behind your shoulders and will look good in dresses with decorative sleeves.

A 72 inch width veil will be good one with moderate height and will give coverage around the arms.

Veil of 108 inches will be a good choice for the full sleeve tops.

Decoration

There are numerous options of giving a finishing touch to a veil. But you need to see that the decoration of your veil sets a match with your dress.

Soft and romantic dresses look better with a simple cut edge.

Choose the veil of the colour that is selected by the bridesmaid.

Also, it’s important to consider the shape and size of your body, face shape and your hairstyle too while choosing a veil for yourself.

Anything that you choose, I’m sure, these few tips can help you pick up the best one.

Realize the Power of your Mind

Wednesday, September 12th, 2012

Realize the Power of your MindEvery action that we perform is a result of our thoughts. All the remarkable things invented till date have also been a result of the thoughts in some of the great minds. The big theories created by some of the big scientists were also initially thought of before being tested. It is just that the power of our thoughts is never acknowledged. Man going to moon was one of the most impossible and unrealistic things to even think of but yet someone did make it possible. Everything that exists on earth, including life is an evidence of thoughts.

In business companies too, brainstorming is a process of solving problems and bringing forth new ideas. Brainstorming is an activity of developing solutions to different problems. It is something related to deliberately coming up with as many solutions as possible and pushing ideas as far as possible to come up with a conclusion. The law of attraction also works something similar to this but not all our thoughts are verbalized. The continuum of our thoughts leads to the creation of physical entities and that is what we called the process of evolution.

All individuals have a thought process of their own. We all think differently and hold different perceptions and that is what leads to diversity. No matter, however we think individually but we all share curiosity for life and that is one of the noted characteristics of human race. As human beings, we have a lot of questions in our mind, and thus seeking an answer to it we are in the continuous process of expanding our minds and developing ourselves in the environment. As we move in our life, we get accustomed to our ways of living and hence we end up limiting the possibilities to reach out to something new. In such situations, we reject notions with which we are not too familiar with. If any eccentric way of living or thinking is presented to us, we are held back and we prefer to confide in our shells. This is because, we are so used to our surroundings that we do not prefer to jump out from a simple one to a complex situation. Such circumstances tend to hold us back from changing individually, therefore we need to open up our minds and accept changes by coming out from our comfort zones.

It is only when we step out from our comfort zones that we realize the true power of our minds. The world we live is affected to a great extent with what we think and how we enact to it. All the fantastic inventions we sit back and enjoy at our home like computers, internet, mobile and other gadgets has all been a result of the thought process. Although, every individual is not comfortable of opening up their thoughts or even accept the fact that their thoughts influence on reality. But, now it is time to change the outlook and doing something out of the box.

Simple Steps to Build Eye Contact with your Dogs

Monday, September 10th, 2012

Simple Steps to Build Eye Contact with your DogsDogs are known as a best friend to a man! There have been so many famed tales been told about a dog and a man’s friendship that I have heard off. The stories have even told spoken about the dogs sacrificing their lives for their masters. Well, nothing on earth can be a better companion than a dog!

You can easily get a dog for yourself but to make it a good companion you will have to train it properly.

The first and foremost thing to do is to teach your dog eye contact. A dog can be called completely trained when they look up to you when you call out to them. Teaching the dog’s eye contact is really fantastic and can be incorporated in a few sessions. Here are a few simple steps to train your dog to increase eye contact with you.

  • Pull out a favourite toy of your pet dog that could be a ball or a rubber toy or anything else that your dog likes. You will have to show the toy but not let your pet have it. You can hold it on top of his face, or may be behind your back or keep it on the ground but not let him have it.
  •  Doing the above mentioned activity, your pet will try having it from you and focus its entire attention on the toy. But, you will not allow the pet to have it from you. You have to try the exercise that many times till the dog removes his eyes from the toy and looks up at you. It will take time for your pet to divert his attention towards you but finally it will do so. And, the task gets easier when you repeat the action numerous times.
  • When your dog finally looks up at you suggesting like “let’s play together” then you can pass on the toy to your pet and even praise your dog by patting on its back or brushing your hand on its neck. Repeating this activity numerous times will make your dog get into the practice of looking at you.

A few weeks later, you will find a considerable improvement in your dog. You can practice this in a variety of situations, may be when you are giving him his favourite food to eat. Make sure that your pet makes an eye contact before you go on to reward him with something nice. Conclusion to all this is that you will end up having a friendlier companion. Having a well trained dog can be the best companion that one can actually have.
