Looking good for the Holidays!

  • Accessories are big and chunchy, so choose only one or two pieces to complement your look;
  • Wear something bright and shiny, according to where you are;
  • Be comfortable and feminine in your clothes;
  • All shades of purple or violet are very trendy;
  • Plateform high heels elongate the legs and are a lot more stable than `we might think;
  • Avoid being covered by sequins from head to toe;
  • Never have a neglected look;
  • Forget wearing Christmas colours, such as the red and green combination!

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to all!
