Hi, everyone! welcome back to my blog. Today, I'm going to be sharing with you my Top 3 Purse wishlist. Hopefully, you like it if you do please make sure to write a comment on the comment section box below because I might be doing some more of these in the future.

So without further ado let's get into my Top 3 Hand Bag wishlist.


The first thing that I'm gonna talk about is this KLXB Charming Rivet Style Shoulder Bag, This is a really light pink, it got a lot of spikes on it which I think is very nice because even though the color is feminine it still looks very edgy because of the spikes. It also has a lot of different colors to choose from like black, red, blue, purple, dark pink and white. I really love this bag because it is so elegant and it is perfect when going to a night out you can put little things inside like your phone, lipstick, wallet and etc. 


The second one is this tote bag in black color. I really like this bag because it's the opened top tote style and I think the shape is very classic and it will always be in style and I do really want a bag that's in black color because it looks so elegant  and I thought this would be a really good fit.



The last bag on my wishlist is this shoulder bag with metal straps it look so chic and I think this is so adorable. The strap is a little bit long, though. I think this one fits way more than it looks especially it's teeny tiny but this is something that I could possibly get for myself. The reason why I like this bag because also has a very classic shape and it is pretty light-weight and I like how it looks. It has this postman lock on the front and you can adjust the strap in different ways and so. I really like the idea of this bag.

And that was it. I hope that you like this post. Please comment down below which bag do you like the most and thank you so much for reading! Have a lovely day! <3

Picking the Perfect Bridesmaids Dresses

25 November 2016
There's a lot to consider when choosing a bridesmaid's dresses for your wedding. But the process can be both easy and fun when shopping. Of course, the wedding day is a Bride's day to Shine. But we want our bridesmaids to look beautiful too! Trust me the quickest way to upset your buds is to invite them to be in your bridal party and then turn them into fashion victims. Don't dress your friends in something hideous so you look better in comparison and definitely don't choose dresses that make them look heavy or frumpy. Curious which style are acceptable? I'm here to help. Here's a list of five steps that will help you find the perfect bridesmaids dresses for your wedding.

Step one: Finding a dress that will work for everyone.


If you have a diverse group of short, big, tall and small it might be best to go with simple dresses with a universally flattering silhouette like an A-line or empire waist, something that will work best for everyone. Avoid over the top details and embellishments which can be costly and often times add bulk in unwanted places. You don't want your bridesmaids feeling awkward on the day of the wedding. Remember your ultimate goal is to find dresses that complement your wedding gown and wedding style.

Step two: Color.

Choosing the right color for your bridesmaid's' dresses is very key. Take a look at your bridesmaids' complexion and hair color to make sure you made the right choice. Also stay away from patterns. You don't want them looking like a kaleidoscope. Hone in on shades that look good on a variety of different skin tones. Cool tones are usually a hit for example from a dark navy to light turquoise, blue tone are either flattering to a fair or dark skin. Purple is another crowd pleaser. Try vibrant shades like plum or violet for maximum wow factor.

Step three: Get feedback from your bridesmaids.

It's your wedding but they might have good ideas as to what makes them feel most comfortable and what looks they like. Also keep in mind that if they'll be buying the dresses, keep the cost low and also think about something that they'll be able to wear more than once. Keep both perspectives in mind while you're shopping and be prepared to offer ideas for changing up the look after the wedding. You can often create an entirely new look with a few extra accessories. I love dresses that transform from celebrations ready to daytime chic!

Another way to ensure happily and still end up with dresses you love, choose the color and fabric and then each bridesmaid pick a style that fits her frame whether you limit your bridesmaids to one silhouette or let them shop for a variety of styles or do the exact opposite. choose a style and let your bridesmaids pick the color they prefer. This time is the silhouette that will make your bridesmaids look put together.

Step four: Choosing a dress that will look good at the wedding itself.

Location, season, time of the day and lighting should all be taken into consideration. You don't want to choose a hunter green dress with a forest backdrop. Your bridesmaids could look like they're wearing camouflage.

Step five: Find dresses that best works for you.

And Finally, after all, these considerations it's still your wedding and you want something that is going to complement the wedding itself, your dress and you.

Once you finalized the color and shape now it's time to focus in a few extras to complete your bridesmaids' look. Pins, shoes, belts and jewelry will dress up any simple style and give each dress a dose of individuality.

To see the hottest bridesmaids dresses go to www.styledress.co.nz.  They have the perfect and affordable Bridesmaid Dresses NZ that suits your bridesmaids the most like this dress below.

10 November 2016
Hi, Everyone! For today's blog post, I'm going to be doing another fall themed blog post because Fall & Winter is my favorite season so I'm going to give you guys a fall & winter inspiration blog post. So basically what I'm gonna be doing is to show you guys a few of the things that I am craving for right now and these are coats.

Their Plus Size selection offers the same stylish threads so every woman can show off their fashionable side. You can shop a complete outfit with just a few clicks. Click here to visit FashionMia for more dresses for women.

So here are my top picks and hope you guys like it and let's jump into the coats.


one | two | three | four | five | six | seven



Let's start off with this coat that goes with so much. You can dress it up, you can dress it down. It's a great day coat. It is great for layering and it's really warm as well. You can wear a belt with it to cinch in the waist, you can sort of roll out the sleeves. It's really a versatile jacket and it comes in so many different colors, patterns, and everything.


The next coat that I'm craving for right now is this Nifty Lapel Patchwork Plain Overcoats. I would definitely recommend this one. This has been huge for I think like a few years right now and it's only getting bigger. This trend is only growing up more and more, year after year. I think it is so beautiful and elegant.

Moving on to this Trench coat, This is also a fall essential that everyone needs in their closet. This camel color is seriously beautiful. It has four buttons on the front and a belt so this is a totally classic that everybody needs.


Next, I have this everyday Casual Duster Coat. It can go with everything. This one you would totally dressed up or down if you want to but I feel like it's a little bit casual. If you can get your hands on a trench coat like this that is a lot more casual, then you would totally be set for the season.



The next one is a fit and flare style trench coat. Celebrities are spotted wearing this dress trend all over the place but here we have it in a trench. This one makes your waist look slimmer and shows off your shape and it's dressy. You can wear it for like a night out. 


Okay so I'm gonna start with this faux fur lined jacket, A lot of these are very current and in store so you guys can totally get your hands on them and I think it is one of a essentials for this season. It looks so comfy to wear, it actually keeps you warm and it's very affordable.


Lastly, this is another one of those coats that are perfect for the transition from autumn to winter. It is very lightweight and easy to take off and carry on your arm but it looks immaculate when you have it on. And I think that this is one of those timeless pieces that you just don't have to worry about ever going out of style in your wardrobe.

That's it for today's blog post I hope that ya'll like it. Thank you so much for reading and have a lovely day! Don't forget to visit FashionMia for more women clothing online.

So without further ado let's get started, shall we?


one | two | three | four | five | six

1. Dark Green Casual Plain Bomber Jacket

Alright so for this first outfit idea I hope that I'm giving off the whole fall vibes. So I chose this bomber jacket because they so are so trendy right now and I love this one because of the color and the details on it.

2, Pink Plain Stand Collar Long Sleeve Trench Coat

Probably one of the most tried and true fall fashion element is the jacket-dress. You really can't go wrong with a Jacket dress! I mean they're cozy, they keep you warm and they have varying hemlines.

3. Khaki Casual Plain H-line Knitted Sweater

The third one is this khaki knit sweater that is super soft and oversized. The bow detail adds more cuteness to this sweater which I like most.

4. Army Green Long Sleeve Pockets H-line Cotton Coat

Hoodies and chic hoodies are making rounds. We can be comfortable and we can be casual with our hoodie wear. Hoodies are being spotted paired with a little black dress as well as your casual looks and it has a nice universal appeal and I think naturally just allows us to feel little more relax and breathe,

5. Pierced Long Sleeve Casual Sweater

I chose this white cable Knit sweater because it is very versatile you can layer any clothing to it like cardigans or denim shirts and it is super cozy too. I love cable knit because it reminds me of fall and winter times, The vertical lines are very slimming also and has a lot of texture.

6. Gray Appliqued H-line Stand Collar Long Sleeve Bomber Jacket

This next outfit piece is probably edgier because it is a bomber jacket. Being pink on the other hand adds a little bit of feminine touch to this jacket and it has some cute patches like emoticons and I'm so obsessed with it. Totally!




7. Gray Buttoned Checkered Lapel Wool Blend A-line Coat

There's one thing that screams fall fashion to me and it is plaids. This is something you can pair with a dress, chic it up for an evening out look or you can pair it with a nice casual outfit and still maintain that chic element.

Outfit piece number eight is a Crew Neck H-line Sweater with some cute prints. You can easily wear this over jeans or some leggings.


This Fall season you wanna grab yourself a nice poncho it is right elegant ways to add coverage and warmth to any look and is something that you can pair with a variety of different looks instead of being tethered down to a coat or a sleeve option.


For outfit piece idea number ten I picked this oversized cardigan because not only it looks cute but it is extra comfortable too! And I don't know about you guys but I love pink so much so yeah.


This one is another fall essential that I have not mentioned yet which is a comfy cardigan. I love the details and the fur collar on this one which makes it so cozy on chilly days.


So for my last outfit piece idea, I picked this one of my favorite clothing piece which is cropped knit sweater because it is a "go to", it is comfy and very appropriate for the fall. What I like about this sweater is it resembles the color of the leaves during fall season,


That was all. I hope you guys enjoyed this post. Don't forget to comment down below your favorite if liked it and if you wanna see more outfit inspirations from me.

Starting off with the glamorous look, I think this one looks something like old Hollywood and something you be wearing on a red carpet and I’d totally be wearing this look if I’m going to prom. It is a black maxi dress and it has a nice lace detail all over the dress. What I like about this dress is it has long slit where you can show off your sexy legs! At the back has this gorgeous bow detail. Over all this dress is so classy and very elegant.




Next is the Girly look, this is perfect if you like a bit pop of color from the rest of the crowd. The detail of this dress is so gorgeous and the back is even more prettier. The material of this dress looks so soft, light-weight and comfortable to wear. This is the dress that you can dance with all night!


 


This 3rd look is for the super sassy girls and want something edgy. This is definitely a bold outfit look. This dress is a black dress with a very sexy neckline and it has a pretty lace detail on it.The back part has some lovely detail that is going on too!

4. Mint Elegant Swing Guipure Lace Solid Evening Dress




Here is the fourth dress. I would totally wear this at prom if I were going to prom this year. It’s my style and I definitely love the color. The top part has nice floral sequined detail which I’m obsessed. I think it’s perfect for the prom night and at the back it has straps which you can show off your flawless sexy back. And the bottom part it’s so flowy the material is made from chiffon and I absolutely love it. You can totally wear this not only at prom but at every other occasions like homecoming, new years eve party and etc.

5. Beige Embroidered Half Sleeve Mini Dress

 

The next dress is a shorter one and it has the prettiest lace details. It’s a very nice dress that you can wear to prom and to other occasions because it looks so perfect and gorgeous!

6. Pink Swing Paneled Plain Spaghetti Tulle Maxi Dress

 


The last dress is little bit simple but very fabulous. It’s like a slip dress but the bottom part is made of tulle material which I think is very flowy and very romantic. I think this is the kind of dress that you can dress up or down. You can like put a leather jacket on top. It’s a very versatile dress and I love it!

The Advantages of a Custom Ring

21 June 2016
Image by LarimdaME via Flickr

Many people, when buying an engagement ring, invest a significant amount of their savings into buying the perfect ring. If you are looking to propose or planning an engagement, you may wish to consider investing in a custom made ring. Not only do you get something that can be unique, but you also get to choose what it is that you want exactly.

·         Choosing a Style of Ring

One of the major benefits of having a custom ring made is that you can mix and match different aspects of other designs, and put them together into a one-of-a-kind design. To get some inspiration, you should browse the websites of reputable jewellers like Ringleaders, and look at all of the different styles that are on offer.

You will also need to decide if you are having any precious stones such as diamonds, as well as the type of metal that you will use for the ring itself. When you know what you want, it is time to shop around!

·         Speaking to Jewellers

It is important to make sure that the company that you decide to commission to make your engagement ring is a certified jeweller and uses only ethically sourced materials. It is also important that you choose a company that does the work in-house, rather than subcontracting it out.

Many jewellers will offer bespoke jewellery and then use a third party to do the job, but some high-quality jewellers do the work themselves, and you can see some of their unique works here.

·         Surprisingly Affordable

When you are looking to purchase an engagement ring, and you hear the word custom or bespoke, you may automatically also assume it’s pricey. However, you may be surprised to learn that commissioning a bespoke ring will not cost you any more than a similar finished ring from the jeweller’s standard collection.

·         You Choose the Quality

Diamonds are graded into different categories which are dictated by the colour and clarity of each stone. The highest grade is D, which would be a clear diamond with no visible colour. However, when it comes to the lower grade of stones which are used to make the jewellery more affordable, the average layman would not be able to tell the difference. Once a stone has been set in the ring, you cannot see the difference between a Grade G and a Grade H.

Both of these grades are near colourless, but the price of the Grade H diamond will be lower than the higher grade. You can save yourself some money by choosing a lower grade diamond and still not diminish the overall effect of the ring.


So when you decide to buy a custom engagement ring, you have quite a few benefits to make it an easy decision. You get to choose the ring that your future bride has always wanted, make it unique, and potentially even save some money in the process. The question to ask is not why would you want a custom engagement ring; the question should be why wouldn’t you want a custom engagement ring? 

Thank you for reading and have a nice day lovelies! <3

Buying the Best Colours of Diamonds

08 June 2016
Image by Yang and Yun's Album via Flickr

When it comes to diamonds, colour is a very important factor. And, the average person would not be able to tell the difference between some of the subtle colour variances. Before you invest in diamond jewellery, it is worth your time and effort to do some research and learn what to look for in a diamond, before you splash the money that you work hard to earn.

·         Colour Gradients

Diamonds use an alphabet based grading system, with the highest grade being D, and the lowest grade being Z. The higher the grade of colour, the more the diamond is worth, so it is important to be able to tell the difference between the different grades. The natural colour that is seen in diamonds is a pale yellow, and the grade of a diamond is higher, with there being less notable colour. The less colour in the diamond, the more it is worth.


Colour of the Diamond
Grade D
Totally Colourless – Extremely rare.
Grade E-F
Colourless – A small amount of colour only discernable to experts.
Grade G-H
Almost Colourless – Difficult to detect unless side by side with  higher grade
Grade I-J
Near Colourless – A slight tone of colour to be seen
Grade K-M
Noticeable Colour – An obvious hint of colour apparent
Grade N-Z
Coloured – The lowest valued diamonds


A good way to see the different colours of diamonds is to go to a wholesale dealer’s website, such as www.diamondsforless.ca, and look at the images of the different colours. Of course, it is even better to visit jewellers in person so that you can see the stones close up.

·         The Finished Product

When you compare diamonds that are of different grades side by side, you may be able to notice a slight colour difference. However, often when the diamond is mounted in a ring, you can place the diamonds next to each other and you would not be able to tell the difference. The right cut of the stone also plays an important part in the way the colour manifests itself, and choosing the right cut to go with the diamond is also a crucial part of the polishing process.

As mentioned, when the diamonds are mounted on a ring, it is a lot harder to tell the difference between the different grades of diamond. As such, you can actually save a bit of money when you buy the diamonds for your ring, by choosing diamonds in from Grades I to J, or G to H. Choosing the correct precious metal to go with any slight colour in the diamond, is another way to make the diamond seem perfect to the untrained eye. If you set a grade F diamond in a ring, and made another ring identical but using a grade H diamond, only an expert would be able to tell the difference.


So if you are looking to buy diamonds for an engagement ring, if you plan well and shop around you can make your money stretch much further. Just think of all of those brownie points you will earn when she sees the ring that you have created for her!

Thank you for reading and have a nice day lovelies! <3

How to Tell the Difference between Silver Plated and Sterling Silver Jewellery

26 May 2016
Image by HeatherWeaver via Flickr

There is a big difference between sterling silver and silver-plated jewellery. If you are going to buy either of them, it is important to understand the difference and know how to tell them apart.

Silver Plated

Silver plating is a process of bonding a very thin layer of silver to the base metal, which is usually white metal, nickel, brass or copper. This thin layer of silver is so thin that it is almost impossible to recover the item without expensive means.

If an item is silver plated, it usually has a marking such as EP, Copper, EPNS or Silver on it, indicating it is not sterling silver jewellery.

Sterling Silver

This is 92.5 percent pure silver, which is the reason it is far more expensive and more valuable than plated items. This metal can be melted and the pure silver can then be recovered fairly inexpensively.

Sterling silver is usually traded in troy ounces. One troy ounce is equal to 31.2 grams and a troy pound comprises 12 troy ounces.

Other Things to Be Aware Of

Sterling silver jewellery tends to have a far better workmanship and quality compared to silver plated pieces. Look out for rolled edges, clean finishes and even the intricacy of its design to determine whether or not it is sterling silver. If you are shopping for a used item of jewellery, you will also notice that sterling can lose its design through wear and tear. However, silver plated items will wear off before the design itself wears away, and the base metal will be exposed.

A Big Red Flag

Often, people try to save money by purchasing sterling silver online from China. If this is the route you want to take, be very sure that the seller offers a return and refund policy.

If you do not know the seller, it is always a good idea to have the purity of the items verified by reputable jewellery or other sources. If the items are not sterling silver as marked, return them right away.

Conclusion

With very, very few exceptions, sterling silver is always marked. Just take a look at this range of beautiful silver bangles in the UK from silver.uk.com.

If you ever suspect that an item is sterling, but you cannot find the correct markings that say so, or you cannot see “925” or English hallmarks marked on the item, you can be sure it is not sterling.

The sterling standard has been around for a matter of centuries and if you do find an item that happens to be 500 years old and it is unmarked, you may just have a very expensive antique! However, the rule of thumb is “it is not marked, it probably isn’t sterling silver.”

There are laws in place that actually prohibit the selling of an item by misrepresenting it or incorrectly identifying it. If an item is listed as sterling silver, but it really isn’t, the seller could be subjected to a lawsuit.

This handy guide should help you determine the difference between sterling and silver-plated jewellery.

Thank you for reading and have a nice day lovelies! <3
