Whether we are talking about that beautiful diamond ring your grandmother left you or we talk about the new watch you just bought, taking care of the accessories you own is important if you want them to last longer and look new. Here are some of the methods you can use to make sure that you take care of your blings the proper way.

Chemical agents and sweat are the biggest enemies when it comes to your fashion jewelry, especially when they are not made of precious metals and risk oxidizing. You need to make sure that you wipe them with a clean cloth after wearing them to remove all oils or sweat that may damage the material. To clean them thoroughly you shouldn’t wash them with water, use alcohol, and dry them afterwards.

When it comes to gemstones, especially high end gemstones like diamonds or sapphires, you need to take extra care of them. They are quite durable but may deteriorate if exposed to certain chemicals, so avoid that. When it comes to the organic gems such as coral, pearls or amber, there is no need to wash them as they will absorb water because they are porous. You can wipe them with a damp cloth and then wipe them with a dry cloth for shine. Avoid putting any detergent on them, because they will deteriorate. Also, if you are wearing opals you should make sure that you don’t expose it to sunlight too much.

Storing your jewelry is as important as keeping it away from water, sunlight or chemicals, because it is the main way your jewelry can get tarnished. Instead of putting them all in a box make sure that they are away from each other; for example, you should store them in separate small boxes or in fabric such as cotton. This way you can keep them dry and avoid tarnishing.

Avoid jewelry cleaner on jewelry that is not made with precious metals or stones, because it may damage the metal. Also, extreme temperatures can also damage jewelry so be careful with that if you want them to last longer and maintain their color.

It is also obvious that you should make sure that your jewelry doesn’t break with impact because even the hardest stones such as sapphire or emerald can break if there is enough impact. Also, silver has a tendency to bend being a softer metal, so be extra careful with that.

When it comes to plus size women, all women know what they need to avoid or what they need to add to their outfit to make sure that they enhance their look. However, there are some women who completely overlook the way accessories have an impact on their outfit. Here is a guide with the best fashion items that will accessorize your look well but will also help you look thinner, starting from head to toes.

Fashion Accesories For Plus Size Women

Head

If you have a round face you should always wear long earrings. These earrings not only look extremely elegant, but they also make your face longer. Another thing that you need to do is add an accessory to your hair and keep it up to elongate your face. This style shows people your beautiful face and makes it look a little slimmer than when having your hair down.

Body

The right accessories that will not only elongate your body but also look amazing are usually longer accessories. A lot pearl necklace is the right option but you can also choose to have a simple necklace with a long design on it. This makes a perfect combination with an elegant blouse that has a v-line neck and shoes some cleavage. Make sure that you avoid really small accessories or even large accessories, as you don’t want to go overboard and attract attention too much on that area. You should also make sure that you choose colors for your accessories that stand out and are different from the colors that you choose for your clothes, this way you will attract the attention to your accessories more, than your body, and you will end up looking thinner.

Hands

Avoid wearing big rings or really big bracelets. Stick to medium sized ones and make sure that they aren’t too tight; you don’t want to give the impression that they don’t fit you. Also, don’t exaggerate with the amount of earrings or bracelets you wear, despite being plus size or small size that is a fashion disaster.

Legs

When it comes to legs the best fashion items are high heeled shoes. They make your legs longer and ultimately make them look thinner so they are a must have.

So you decided to get your female friend or lover a nice looking watch for her birthday ? There are some things that you need to know before buying her a watch if you don’t want to spend money on something she will end up hating.

If you want something that would definitely impress her you can always buy something really expensive like watches from brands like Omega, Rolex, Breitling, IWC, but even with one of those watches you might end up making a bad decision.

Size

When it comes to the size of the watch you are going to buy, you definitely need to make sure that it would fit the woman who will wear it. If you are unsure of her wrist size, you can buy a medium size watch that would work great on both small wrists and big wrists.

Style

The style completely depends on her personality but it’s best to choose something simple when you don’t really know what she wants. If you think that just because she is a woman she will love jewelry watches or very shiny watches, you are wrong. A lot of women prefer a simple watch because it’s more comfortable to wear and they can combine it with any type of outfit they want. Simple designs are the key but make sure that they don’t look to masculine and they still have some nice decorations that makes them stand out in a crowd, because in the end that’s what a watch should do, complement an outfit.

Color

If you are looking for something unique, try not to choose a weird color. If the watch is made of metal, silver or black should be the right colors even for women. Never go overboard and choose a green watch just because you think she wants something unusual, she might never wear that unusual watch you bought.

Features

Women aren’t that interested in the features a watch has so you can skip this part. However, if she is a watch connoisseur, you might want to ask her more details about the watches she likes before buying her one.

Forget about what the fashion magazines say about women’s shape, an hourglass figure is the best shape possible and you will have to get some cool fashion items to make yourself even sexier. Here are some of the things that should always be in your wardrobe.

Bra – a good bra is always the best fashion item any curvy woman needs. If your breast area is larger you will be able to show a lot of cleavage, but you have to make sure that you have a good bra. This fashion item is essential and you need to make sure that you have at least one that has a lighter color and one with a darker color so that you can switch them according to your clothes.

Collection of Furla Bags

A philosopher once said that our eyes see beauty in changing forms. If we follow this logic, the fall/winter 2012 – 2013 collection of Furla bags, presented on the 24th of February in Milan is nothing but a display of classic beauty. There are only a few designers who can achieve that much and who are able to bring together so many different images in a single collection.

Let’s take, for instance, the fur bags. Who said that this fabric can be used solely for oversized bags? The Italian designers certainly proved it wrong. Trapezoid shaped shoulder bags, clutches and mini messenger bags can also be made of fur. Who said that fur must necessarily be short and gray? With this year’s collection of Furla bags, a few irregular brown spots on white cow fur go perfectly with the color of the strap leather and long haired sheep fur can visually change the design of a bag.

 

Medium sized messenger bags equipped with a chain are a tribute to retro style that is revived not only by the form, but also by the chromatic tones reminiscent of the 80s fashion. The same classical design with which the Italian designers have accustomed their clients characterizes this collection, but there are all sorts of shapes and especially, a variety of colors. A trapezoid bag made of brown leather is adorned with matching reptile skin stripes and equipped with a short metal chain. Gray shades are skillfully combined with brown stripes and a golden clasp. A leather bag bearing a dark burgundy color is equipped with a string of metal chain inserted in the thin leather strap.

The Bon Bon line certainly made the headlight of this unconventional fashion parade where the models – all dressed the same (white leggings and silver ballet flats) – were walking on a totally white catwalk and had their faces concealed by a white curtain. Although the Bon Bon bags are a little nostalgic, they blend perfectly with contemporary trends. Moreover, they are functional, elegant and they bring an explosion of colors: brilliant yellow, vivid orange, lipstick red, neon green and, of course, the troubling purple.

However, if you want to buy a Furla bag without a solid clasp, which is specific for the Italian brand, you should pay attention to Piper Furla, which is, by no means similar to the other models of the brand: the small catch of the bag is made of dark steel; the beige color of the bag is fairly simple, but nevertheless elegant. Piper is a must-have accessory for a real lady.

The laconic style and casual functionality (specific for the brand) were embodied in the queen of this collection – “Furla and I”.  This minimalist medium-sized bag adorned with rivets and zippers was offered in the exceptional Furla shop on Corso Vittorio Emanuele from 24 to 29 February 2012 (during Milan Fashion Week). Very trendy, but also extremely practical, it illustrates the brand’s taste for simplicity, casual elegance and clean lines.
