There’s no doubt that jewelry and accessories
are essential parts of any stylish outfit. The
trick to wearing a necklace is to match the
necklace to your personality and style. Also,
it’s important to know what’s appropriate to
wear for each occasion. If your personal style
is sporty and more casual, it means you project
a friendly, dynamic and energetic appearance.
This means your clothes and accessories are
practical and playful, with both function and
fun in mind. Try small to medium earrings as
well as necklaces and bracelets with funky
designs and made of natural materials.
Some eco-friendly jewelry designs could be
a nice option. When your personal style is
more classic or you’re working on a more
formal look, opt for pearls, gemstone studs,
gold knot earrings and beaded necklaces. If
your personal style is romantic, you’ll exude
a feminine image and your pieces will be
characterized by a soft and gentle look. As far
as your jewelry, soft color stones and pearls
like the Crystal and Turquoise Lariat with Pearl
design by Bibiconcepts (Look 1) will suit you
perfectly. It’s a great look if you are going to
a wedding party or other similar once-in-a-
lifetime event. Because of its visual impact,
this dramatic style empowers women. If you
want to project a stronger and very confident
image, you should go for more dramatic pieces.
One statement accessory, usually an oversized
necklace or ring like the design by Charles
Albert pictured above (Look 2) emphasizes any
outfit and gives you this dramatic appearance.

you have nothing to sell except for
the image: The image is everything.”

24 Muddy Bride
The first-ever nudist meeting in the
U.S. was organized by a German
immigrant in 1929. Three women and
four men responded to his newspaper
advertisement, joining him for a naked
hike through the Hudson Highlands.
These days, couples spend an
average of $1,970 on flowers for their
weddings. But what Martha Stewart
probably won’t tell you is that these
bouquets were originally intended to
cover up the bride’s body odor.
In 1770, legislators in the British
Parliament tried to pass a bill stating
that women who wore makeup should
be punished for witchcraft. At the time,
conservatives feared the potentially
arousing effect it had on gentlemen.
