Summer Dressing by Annabel Tollman

Summer Dressing:


Hi I’m Annabel Tollman, I’m a celebrity stylist and I’m here to share with you some style tips and fashion finds straight from the pages of eBay Fashion. I’ll show you how to throw together the perfect outfit for any event, whether it be something outdoors like a fancy barbeque, something a bit more formal like a summer wedding, or something causal like a lunch party.


Ok so here we have our first look. Diane is wearing this beautiful Thea Porter laced dress from the 70’s. The lace, I think, takes it into the realm of being eveningy. If you’re going to a daytime barbeque maybe go with a floral frock or something in a bright shade and we’ve put it with these really lovely flat Manolo Blahnik sandals that just sort of work with the dress beautifully and you are always going to feel comfortable and elegant.


So here we have Brandie, who is going to a wedding this afternoon and she’s wearing this beautiful 1950’s frock that just feels so carefree and light and elegant and pretty, but yet it’s still appropriate and it’s not going to outshine the bride or make you feel uncomfortable in any way.
Brandi is wearing this pastel Nina Ricci dress from the 60’s, it’s this amazing color, mint green and it’s strapless so if you’re going somewhere and it’s a little more formal then maybe pop a little jacket over the top. We’ve put it with a nice pair of nude colored shoes – now nude color shoes, big fan of those, always elongates the leg.

What is Size XO Fashion

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

Fashion Goes in Cycles

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.

The date is set. The next edition of the WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE trade shows, will take place from Friday 22nd to Monday 25th January 2016 at Porte de Versailles.  In the midst of its extensive renovation work, the Paris Expo - Porte de Versailles is keeping its doors open for events. This ambitious modernisation project aims to strengthen the role that Paris holds as tourism market leader with regards to international business.  The first phase of the renovation concerns halls 1 and 7, the main entrance and the central walkway with the creation of travelators between hall 3 and 4.   In line with this situation, WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE are having to evolve and transform. The areas are being rethought, reworked, to offer a more fluid experience, a clearer display of the trade shows’ offer.  By joining forces with Studio GGSV (Curator of the Saint-Etienne Design Biennial 2013) the trade shows guarantee a quality setting and optimal space layout.
