Spring Fashion – Same Sky, Jewelry with a Heart

Same Sky Prosperity BraceletLooking fashionable this spring will make you feel better if you’re wearing a Same Sky bracelet or necklace as your accessory of choice.

Same Sky was created as a trade-not-aid initiative to help women in the African countries of Rwanda and Zambia rebuild their lives. Their goal is to give women a hand-up instead of a handout. These women who survived the 1994 genocide are taught to create the most beautiful hand woven beaded jewelry.

Baubles have been seen on celebrities including Halle Berry, Goldie Hawn, Ann Curry, Lauren Bush,? Sela Ward, Donna Karan, Fergie, Meryl Streep and more.

The stunning and affordable bracelets and necklaces were on display at Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills, where I picked up their? Hope necklace in a light coral color. I wore it on a recent appearance on FOX news and received many compliments. The necklaces are so versatile that they can be worn as one long strand, double-stranded, or even wrapped around your wrist as a bracelet.

Same Sky Prosperity bracelets are priced at $65 – $85 and range in a variety of colors including red, pink, and purple. Their slogan is “Every woman, Every dream.” It’s something worth bragging about to your next online date.

5 Ways to Look and Feel Red Hot on Valentine’s Day

Red Hot Dressing for Valentine'sWondering if you should wear red or pink this Valentine?s Day? I?m a firm believer that red the perfect color to wear year-round for your online dating profile, as well as on a first date. But don?t take my word for it. I reached out to Image Consultant Kimberly Seltzer, who agreed, it?s best to be the Lady in Red this Valentine?s Day. Kimberly compares Valentine?s outfits to Halloween for a little bit of fun.

?Both holidays give you a chance to dress up and perhaps wear something a little risqu? that you perhaps wouldn?t normally wear,? says Kimberly.? ?No matter if you are celebrating with your man, going out with your girlfriends to attract a new one or just pampering yourself on Valentine?s Day, put on something that makes you feel special, alive and sexy.? Seltzer encourages singles and women in a relationship to put on their little black dress, throw on a pair of high heels and pile on the vanilla-flavored lip-gloss.

Here are Kimberly?s 5 easy red-hot tips that will surely shoot an arrow right into any man?s heart.

1.???? Feel Sexy?What men find sexy in a woman is when she herself feels sexy.?? Men notice your sexual confidence in the way you dress, walk, move your body and smile.? Wear something that makes you feel sexy and sensual.? ?So put on a dress that you feel confident and a little daring in.? This doesn?t mean you have to show your mid-drift or fall out of your dress. Guys would much rather undress you with their eyes and leave things to the imagination than display it all right there.? Part of being sexy is leaving them with a sense of intrigue and curiosity.? If you give it all away to them, they may not have the desire to want more.? For example, wear a fitted red dress that shows your curves and just teases the man with a low cut-out back.? Or perhaps you want to go more casual and sport a leather jacket with a lacy cami peeking through.

Use fabrics that are great against your skin and touchable. Cashmere, silky satin, and buttery soft suedes are the real scene-stealers. Touchable fabrics not only invite another’s touch, they have the added bonus of feeling great against your skin so you feel pampered and sexy.? Find fun and unique ways to express your sensuality!

2.???? ?Dress Feminine?Men absolutely love a soft womanly touch.? A dress, skirt and heels can make any man?s heart skip a beat.? Display your feminine sexuality with flowing hair or an attractive hairdo, nice nails, makeup and discreet displays of bare skin, plus colorful clothes and jewelry that are eye-catching signs of femininity.? And ladies, no corporate blazers please!? Your dress should be flirty, flowy and gorgeous.? Perhaps it is romantic and completely easy like a soft silk in a red and off-white combination.? Or maybe it is a tight fitted LBD worn with sleek patent red pumps.? And while you are at it, remember to laugh, smile, create softness and be light and open on your date with your man.? He?ll appreciate your receptive and delicate attitude and style.

3.???? Wear Heels?A man will love the way you move in a pair of high heels.? There are three reasons why men?s jaw drop when you slip on the stilettos.? They love the way the shoes make your legs look, how they make you walk and move your body and how it exudes femininity.? Find the perfect footwear to go with that Valentine?s dress.? Think sexy, strappy, sparkly and high!? Feel a little unsteady in the skyscrapers?? Try a pair of platforms with a thicker heel to give you more support.

4.???? Smell Amazing?Explore a new signature fragrance that captures your man?s attention.? Several studies show that vanilla-flavored perfumes can intoxicate his senses.? But perhaps he prefers something a little fresh and floral with a hint of citrus.? Notice those fragrances that get a reaction and go with it!? You might also want to try a new body lotion to put all over your body in unexpected places.

5.?? Be Daring and Add A Surprise?If you have been with your beau for a while, most likely there is an element of monotony in your relationship and in the way you dress.? Even if you are going out with your girlfriends or you are with a new man, it?s important to infuse a little variety in your life which can help you give off new and exciting energy.? Spice things up by wearing something a little different for you.? Perhaps you secretly wear a new red lacy thong with a matching bra under your Valentine?s dress.? Or nothing attracts attention quite like a hat. First, it takes guts to wear one.? Second, it takes panache to carry it off.? Combine the two qualities and you get major sex appeal.

Whatever you decide to wear, enhancing and focusing on your Valentine attitude and your wardrobe will boost the way you feel about yourself, thus boosting your chances for love on this special day.

First Date Fashion Tips

First Date FashionIn honor of Fashion Week and the changing of the seasons, it just might be time to spice up your wardrobe a bit and seize a new look for your next online date.

Wardrobe coach, Nicole Longstreath has offered her fashion advice on how to dress on a date to help you look your best, both online and offline.

A first date with a potential suitor can be a make-or-break affair. It’s important to be genuine so, much like a job interview, you want to be ready to chat about all the right things – and avoid the wrong things. More importantly, you also want your wardrobe to project the right image.

Putting together that perfect first-date outfit can mean the difference between making the best impression and never getting a call back. While getting ready for the date, here are a few things to remember:

Don’t rush. If you have to schedule a Friday-night-date, make sure you have enough time to get home from work with sufficient time to get date-ready. An 8:00 Friday night date is perfect. Otherwise, schedule something for Saturday.

Give yourself options. The day before, take a good look in your closet and pull together a selection of 2 to 3 outfit options. Consider what the date’s activities will be and plan accordingly.

First Date Fashion Tips
Dress comfortably. I can’t stress this enough – do not wear something that is ill-fitting, itchy, doesn’t breathe well or shows perspiration easily (silk and satin). The idea is to project your genuine personality, which will be difficult if you are fussing with your clothing. It will also distract your date from the conversation. Don’t forget, this especially applies to shoes; make sure the shoes you choose to wear are well broken-in and you can comfortably walk in them for 3-4 hours.

Factor the conditions. Where I live, in Southern California, the evenings can get quite chilly even in Summer time. If you plan to be anywhere outdoors, make sure you bring a sweater or jacket which coordinates with your outfit. Conversely, dress in layers so you can remove something if the weather gets hot.

Keep it simple and sexy. When it comes to fashion, most men are out of the loop when it comes to trends. Your best bet is to avoid styles which are very trendy, even if your date is fashion-forward. Think classic styles – drapey skirts which hit at the knee, blouses which have v-neck and sweetheart necklines and styles which accentuate the waist. Skip the complicated stuff and save your trendier garments for future dates.

Summer Fashion Dos and Dont’s for Daters

We’re in the middle of summer now, but some singles are just starting to date again. Finding the right outfit to make that terrific first impression in your online dating profile or on a first date is really important.

Our friends at Match.com polled some of their members to find out what they prefer seeing their date wearing and I’m tossing in some of my fashion favorites for both men and women for the season.

Summer Fashion Trends - Cyber Dating Expert

Women

Do wear long hair in braids. It’s fun and flirty and not just for children anymore.

Don’t wear a low cut dress or top. There’s no need to show off your cleavage on a first date, unless you’re anxious to head to the bedroom.

Do wear white pants on a date. Take advantage of the clean feeling of bright white in the summer time.

Don’t wear flip flops. Men still like the look of a heel on a woman. Unless you’re taking a beach walk, wear a high-heeled open toe sandal.

Do wear a short skirt or dress. Short and sexy will never go out of style.


Summer Fashion for Men - Cyber Dating Expert

Men

Do wear khaki’s. It’s simple and conservative. You can’t go wrong with this look combined with a polo shirt.

Don’t wear a Hawaiian shirt. Bright patterns are distracting and out-of-style.

Do wear aviator sunglasses. Women find this look sexy on an outdoor date. Remember when you go inside, take them off so she can glance at your eyes.

Don’t wear a Speedo. Never ever wear a Speedo or she’ll speed out of there faster than you can imagine. Try wearing conservative swimsuit or shorts if you’re headed to the beach.

Do wear a vee neck tee shirt or cardian sweater. This casual look for the summer may make her eyes melt.

Do you have a favorite summer fashion look? Your comments and suggestions are always welcome.

From Victoria’s Secret VS Kiss Capri in red, priced at $39.50 to rose-colored?MF Jeans for $130, there are a variety of styles and colors to choose from. So think back to your favorite color in the Crayola crayon box and you’ll be right in style on date night this season.
