Dita Von Teese ALL WAYS looks totally pulled together. Head to toe the girl is style perfection. You KNOW this doesn’t just happen. Dita pays attention to detail(s) and the total effect is a pulled together ladylike look that is glamorous to the tenth power.  Here are a few style rules we can glean from the beautiful Dita ..

1. Don’t leave the house without: Makeup (at the very least put on some lip color so you have a hint of color.

2. Put together pieces that are figure flattering and bring out your best assets.

3. Consider wearing more skirts, dresses and actual “outfits” instead of sporting workout wear 24/7.

4. Essentials like the perfect handbag and heels are something to embrace.

5.  Hair is combed and coifed-This is essential!

You may have noticed ALLOT of pink happening all around this season and I for one couldn’t be happier about this present state of Fashion affairs. Pink is a MAJOR trend for spring 2017 and it’s available in every shade and style.  Every Glamour Girl looks great in pink and it only depends on the tone of hue on you.  Light pink, dark pink, hot pink pastel pink…so many options all you need do is find the perfect palette of pink for you.  Here’s to being “Pretty in Pink” Happy Spring!

Glovely

Posted By: Terri

Why oh why did we ever stop wearing gloves? Think about it for a minute..the benefits of covering one hands  removes a plethora of problems. First of all we can do away with needing any sort of hand sanitizer nonsense which P.S. only dries  out your skin and is only effective until the next time you touch something. Secondly, it is the best sunscreen on the planet and finally and probably most importantly it is so tres chic to complete your look with a beautiful pair of well appointed gloves. When you stop and realllly consider the concept of wearing gloves for style  and function it  would be …glovely. vintage

In Pursuit of Removing Pesky Pen Marks

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion tips
Favorite method to remove ink stains

My favorite method to remove ink stains

It’s happened to all of us. The dreaded pen marks that land somewhere very conspicuous on our favorite piece of clothing.  Now you know this never happens to an item of clothing that we could care less about but instead it somehow occurs when we are wearing one of our absolute favorite wardrobe staples. Like that pristine white blouse or the perfect fitting pair of tan wool pants that you paid waaaaay to much for but they were the perfect fit and you wear them constantly. I KNOW you know exactly what I’m talking about. Soooo as a public service announcement to all my wonderful readers I thought it might be of great interest to find a solution to removing those pesky pen marks that somehow make their mark where they don’t belong…

First place a clean cloth underneath the stain before applying any solution. This helps prevent any ink from running through to the piece of garment underneath.

  • Chances are it’s gone through to the other side of the fabric, so after cleaning the top of the garment, make sure to work on the back as well before laundering as usual. Some prefer working on the underside first, then the top.
  • You can use a soft toothbrush to “scrub” the spot a bit with the chosen treatment, but make sure you don’t scrub so hard that you permanently damage the garment’s fibers.
  • Be careful with any method you choose, test a small area first to make sure the formula won’t damage the garment.
  • If you’re finding that one method is not giving you the desired results and wish to switch to another, make sure to thoroughly rinse and wash out (by hand) the residue from the first treatment before moving onto the next. Always use cool water, not hot since the heat can set the mark.
  • If it’s carpet you’re working with, these should work too. Just make sure to test first.

Recipe #1 1 TBS Vinegar 1 TBS Milk 1 tsp Borax 1 tsp Lemon Juice

  • Mix together all the ingredients then apply to spot, leave for about 10 minutes. Dampen a sponge with cool water then dab at it until it’s gone.

#2 Hairspray

  • Spray hairspray over it until it’s well saturated. Wait 30 minutes then dab at it with a sponge first soaked in cool water. You may have to soak it in hairspray a couple times.

#3 Fingernail Polish Remover (plain, unscented)

  • Test a small unnoticeable area of the garment first before using. This could discolor some fabrics. The method is the same as above, saturate the area then dab at it with a cool, wet sponge.

#4 Toothpaste (Plain paste, not gel, no bleach)

  • Just like with the white collars trick and the permanent marker tip, toothpaste can help lift ink from fabric too. Apply, let set for a few minutes, then run under cool water while gently rubbing the toothpaste into the fabric. Repeat as necessary.

#5 Isopropyl Alcohol (Rubbing Alcohol)

  • Saturate with isopropyl alcohol, leave for 30 minutes, then try lifting it up with a sponge first wet with cool water.

#6 Vinegar (Regular White Household)

  • Pour a teaspoon of vinegar directly on top and allow to rest for about 10 minutes. Then dab a drop or two of liquid dish detergent onto the area. Rub it in gently with your fingers. Leave to rest for about 5 minutes. Rinse under cool water, gently rubbing the soap into the fabric while the water rinses the area.

#7 WD-40

  • Spray over area and after a minute or two, rinse off.

#8 Shaving Cream

  • This needs to be the foaming shaving cream, not the gel. Spray a bit of the foam on top, wait 30 minutes, then run under cool water while gently rubbing with your fingers

#9 Ivory Soap (bar)

  • Run the fabric under cool water so it’s good and wet. Rub the Ivory Soap bar into the area (not too roughly or it will damage the fibers), make sure to rub a good amount of soap into the spot. Leave for 30 minutes. Add a couple drops of liquid dish detergent, rub in with your fingers (gently), then run under cool water.

#10 Buttermilk

  • Let the item soak in Buttermilk for 24 hours, then rinse under cool water with a bit of Ivory soap or liquid hand soap. If that hasn’t gotten rid of it, soak in Buttermilk again and repeat the process.

Success! After you have successfully lifted out the stain, rinse the item very well in cool water to completely wash away all traces of the treatment you used. Then launder the garment as you normally would Stain solutions courtesy of tipnut.com
