Accessories Maketh the Woman by Annabel Tollman
Accessories Maketh the Woman:
Feel like you’re ready for a bit of a change but not a complete fashion do-over? It’s easy to make your whole wardrobe feel new again just by updating your accessories.This fall, add accents like kitten heels, the top-handle granny bag or long leather gloves. Give your look a fresh spin with coveted accessories from top designers and brands all at amazing prices from eBay Fashion.
·The kitten heel is a great way to get a little lift and draw attention to a shapely ankle.
oBack in the day, showing your slip was not very ladylike, but today embracing the visible lingerie look makes your look all your own.
oShow off your waistline with a patent skinny belt.
oChoose a pump with a pointy front, like these by Christian Louboutin, to elongate the leg.
·Top handle frame bags were shown by designers on the runway for fall, but haven’t actually been used by anybody under the age of 80 for some time, which makes this an accessory ripe for vintage pickings.
oTop handle bag should be structured like this vintage one, and small to medium sized.
oMix with sporty pieces like a stripe-y t-shirt and a pair of skinny jeans by J. Crew.
oKeep it basic – stay with neutrals but don’t get too match-y. You want to look like Grace Kelly or Audrey Hepburn.
·Long leather gloves are the “do-everything” accessory.They’re also a great fix for vintage coats with bracelet lengths sleeves. My personal favorite is to wear them with a chiffon dress to add a hard-edged twist.
oTuck in the sleeves of your shirt or sweater and wear these gloves by LaCraisa over the top.
oAdding little touches, like a skinny belt over your jacket or a bright- colored sweater from H&M will bring your whole outfit together.
oYou don’t want your gloves to dominate your entire look – if they go past your elbows, just slouch them a bit.
So, think about accessories to spice up your wardrobe this fall. If you’re always out and about like me, check out the new eBay Fashion iPhone app. You can use the cool Closet feature to store and curate favorite fashion finds in one place. For more, go to visit fashion.ebay.com. Happy Shopping!

What is size XO fashion ? OK, it is possible you have never heard of size XO. It is also possible that size XO does not exist or never has existed. Well, the fact of the matter is that I am fairly sure size XO does exist. I was on facebook last night and on the Fashion Bug page someone was asking why Fashion Bug charged more for size XO then they did for size XL. The lady writting the post mentioned she measured them and they appeared to be the same. Anyway, I tried to research the size and did not find much at all. It is my understanding (possibly and incorrect understanding) that size XO clothing was created for larger size women in the same manner that size zero was created for smaller size women. It is very possibly simply a "vanity" size. OK, here is how Fashion Bug explained the size, " The sizes XL and OX are in fact different. An OX provides more room in various areas of the garment such as the body, armholes, sleeve length and shoulders. And a 1X hav

They say that fashion goes in cycles. What is in fashion this year will be out of fashion next year. However, clothing that may have been in style ten years ago, can potentially be next season smashing trend. Due to the the cyclical nature of the apparel industry it is important for designers as well as consumers to monitor past styles as well as currently trending designs. One way to do this would be to occasionally view old fashion articles in magazines, newspapers, websites, and obviously on blogs such as this one.
