Parties are part of this event. Probably, you have already decided on the particular dress that you will wear for this special occasion?

However, before we start to enumerate, you should know first what kind of social gathering you are going to attend. In this case, you can properly plan your best attire and dress accordingly.

If you will have a date in daytime, it would be exciting if you shift the mode from demure to flirty outfit. You can wear camisole and a shrug over it. Wearing jeans is also sexy.

Feminine type of dress is very attractive to wear for daytime date.

Having an evening date is a different perspective. You have to dress according to the night’s event. You should know whether if it is a formal dinner party or less formal?

As long as you are comfortable with your dress, you feel sexy, and most importantly you are confident, then probably you have a perfect outfit. There is no question for that. Hope this post had gave you some ideas on what to wear this heart’s day…

The much awaited winners for the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards were finally named on Sunday (January 15, 2012), at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, California.

George Clooney was hailed by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) as Best Actor in the Motion Picture (Drama category) for the film “The Descendants” while the Best Actress was awarded to Meryl Streep for the film “The Iron Lady”. Other winners in a Motion Picture under Musical or Comedy category were Jean DuJardin (Best Actor for the film The Artist) and Michelle Williams (Best Actress for the film My Week with Marilyn).  Christopher Plummer for the film Beginners and Octavia Spencer for the film Help also received the title as Best Supporting Actor and Actress of the 2012 Golden Globe Awards.

Aside from knowing who are lucky to receive an award from HFPA, there’s still one thing that makes a few female celebrities noticeable as they step on the red carpet. And that is no other than but their nicely-fitted outfits. So let’s check out who these actresses are. 

Angelina Jolie, the 36-year-old humanitarian and actress, step on the red carpet wearing this well-designed white-off shouldering-baring Atelier Versace gown accented by a sharp triangle of red around the collar. Her outfits is  one of the best gowns of the evening.

Nicole Kidman also arrives at the Beverly Hilton Hotel wearing an off-white fitted Atelier Versace gown studded with gold detail.

Even though she may have missed out the Best Actress Award (TV show category), Zooey Deschanel still dazzles in this Prada dress embroidered with black and dark green pearls; and collar framed with ivory pearl.

Who would say that she’s 64? Glenn Close, another Best Actress nominee, looks classy elegant in this black velvet dress and matching shawl.

Finnish Clothing Retailers Support Clean Clothes Coalition Campaign on Sandblasting

In my previous post regarding sandblasted jeans, I mentioned there some of the clothing companies that provide support on abolishing sandblasting techniques. The last apparel manufacturer to announce their support on the said campaign of Clean Clothes Coalition was Versace.

Five months after the famous Italian clothing brand Versace supported the movement of CCC that aims to improve the work conditions in textile industry by ensuring the health safety of every worker, clothing retailers and sellers in Finland likewise stop importing jeans that underwent sandblasting process. According to the recent survey released by Finnwatch, 22 out of 24 apparel shops respondents of survey claimed that they are no longer buying sandblasted jeans.

Rising concerns over sandblasted jeans came out when a group of researchers found the hazards brought by sandblasting to the health of workers in textile industry. Studies revealed that the process could cause severe damage to the lungs and lead to silicosis.

By the way, below are some of the denim jeans for ladies that do not undergo sandblasting method and are surely safe to wear.

Barbie Tattoos: A Fashion Fun or Bad Influence?

Barbie has always been an amazing role model for young girls. But when Italian-based, Japanese inspired brand Tokidoki unveils its latest collection of Barbie dolls it leads to a big controversy, especially to conservative parents. The new doll collection of Tokidoki is a Barbie that sports a pink bob-style hair,  heart-and-crossbones off-shoulder black shirt, leopard-printed leggings, a dog named Balladrino, and tattoos across her left arm, neck, and chest. 

Does Barbie's new reinvention create a harmless fashion fun or a bad influence to young girls?
A Barbie that gets inked is not the only controversial doll collection of Tokidoki brand. In 1999, Butterfly Art Barbie was introduced but quickly withdrawn from stores after parents complained and ten years after (2009) the company once again released the Totally Stylin’ Tattoos Barbie, a doll with removable sticker tattoos that some people found a tittersome use for. 

By the way, for conservative barbie doll collectors out there, here are some of cheap barbie dolls I found on amazon.
