width, hairstyles with blunt edges will make your face look
a lot wider than it actually is. Avoid styles that have any type of
bold lines that will make your face look rounder than it
really is. Round faces work best with a lot of volume on top,
which visually lengthens the face.
Adding volume at the roots is one option to add instant height.
Ask your hair stylist to add texturizing or layers around your
crown area to add height. If your hair is naturally thin or fine
use a volume boosting shampoo to add fullness on top. Or,
you can use a root lift solution or volumizing gel to the roots
and use a round brush to lift as your blow-dry.
Updos add instant height. Try pulling your hair into a high
ponytail or other updo anchored at your crown. Pull out a
few strands on either side of your face to add subtle
- Choose a monochromatic outfit. Monochromatic doesn't necessarily mean boring.
Mix different textures to keep it interesting (i.e. knits with leather)
- Add contrasting color or texture with a blazer, cardigan or overshirt.
- If you are petite (5'3" or under) scale everything down: smaller prints, pockets, etc.
so they don't overpower your figure.
- Leave the blazer or cardigan unbuttoned for vertical lines.
- Any stripes on a garment should be vertical.
- Tie scarves loosely with long, vertical dangling ends.
- Match pantyhose color to skirt or pant and shoe color.
- Avoid big belts, which will cut you in half visually.
- Use long necklaces or pendants to add vertical lines.
- Wear skirts that are longer than they are wide.
- Choose shoes with at least an inch heel: the taller the better (unless, of course, you're
a rip-roarin' clutz like me. LOL!).
- Elongate the neck with V-necks.
- Don't go for all long items, Contrast proportions. Put a longer jacket with a shorter
skirt, shorter jacket with pants, etc.
One thing I've learned is to buy smaller bags.
What you need to do first is look very hard
at the stuff in your bag. What do you REALLY
Once you've pared down to neccessities, look
at the sizes of the items you carry.
For Example: To decide the width of my purse,
I go by my Parking Placard (I'm Disabled)
because It's the widest item I carry.
For the depth of your bag, figure out your
bulkiest item(s). (Checkbook wallet, Makeup
Then for the height, figure your tallest items
as well as what you'll put on top in your bag.
Then go just a tad larger than that so can fit your
smaller items in around your larger items.
But, don't go to much larger. The trick is to go
just large enough for your basics, with out
allowing for as much clutter build-up.
I hope these tips help you as much as they've
helped me! Happy Purse Shopping!

About Web logs and I am...
Blogging is a way for me to comment on and consolidate
news, current events, useful resources, and other relevant
matters. In my blog entries, I usually add links to other
people's blogs or websites with original content instead of
writing my own.

in a while, but it's still a good read.
Blurb on homepage:
"It's all about me, a teenage girl, who
couldn't find a great site about beauty
anywhere! It seemed like everything
out there was either commercial,
copied from a magazine, or written by
someone who makes physics sound
terribly interesting! Since I'm on a tight
budget (like, zero dollars!), I'm going to
do my best without pictures for now.
Hopefully my English skills will be enough
to guide you into the wonderful world of

You almost get a high when you find
a great piece for a low price. I found
an absolutely fabulous dress at
Burke's Outlet. The dress was deeply
discounted several times over, & what
was once a $50+ dress at Beall's now
only set me back 85¢. That's Right
