FROM FELT TO STRAW TO BASEBALL CAPS – HIGHLIGHT YOUR OUTFIT IN HAUTE HATS!

Whether you’re dressed to the nines in haute couture, or toned down in casual jeans and a T-shirt, accessorizing your outfit with a fashionable, eye catching hat will add to the oomph of your look and add all that!

A hat is a head covering which is worn for various reasons, often as a fashion accessory. Hats are also worn for protection against the weather, ceremonial reasons, school graduations, religious purposes and safety.  Style divas have found a way to turn practical garments into aesthetically pleasing props for centuries!

Hat Fun Fact: While there are many official records of hats before 3000 BC, hats were commonplace before that time. Archaeologists think that the Venus of Brassempouy from 26,000 years ago may depict a hat. One of the earliest known confirmed hats was worn by a bronze age man whose body (including his hat) was found frozen in a mountain between Austria and Italy, where he’d been since around 3300 BC. He was found wearing a bearskin cap with a chin strap, made of several hides stitched together, essentially resembling a Russian hat without the flaps.

One of the first pictorial depictions of a hat appears in a tomb painting from Thebes, Egypt, which shows a man wearing a conical straw hat, dated to around 3200 BC. Hats were commonly worn in ancient Egypt. Many upper class Egyptians shaved their heads, then covered their heads in a headdress intended to keep them cool.

No matter the hair, no matter the head, when covered in a gorgeous hat you’ll knock ’em dead!

Hat Fun Fact: In the first half of the 19th century, women wore bonnets that gradually became larger, decorated with ribbons, flowers, feathers and gauze trim. By the end of the century, many other styles of hats were introduced, among them hats with wide brims and flat crowns, the flower pot and the toque. By the middle of the 1920s, when women began to cut their hair short, they chose hats that hugged the head like a helmet.

Popular Styles of Hats:

  1. Ascot Cap
  2. Bonnet
  3. Baseball Cap
  4. Beanie
  5. Bearskin
  6. Beret
  7. Bowler/Derby
  8. Cricket Cap
  9. Coonskin Cap
  10. Cowboy Hat
  11. Fedora
  12. Felt
  13. Fez
  14. Hard Hat
  15. Montera
  16. Pillbox Hat
  17. Santa Hat
  18. Sombrero
  19. Straw
  20. Top Hat
  21. Toque
  22. Turban

So many hats on the market but only one head. With so may days in a year you can wear a different hat many days, and even when you go to bed!

Hat Fun Fact: Hats sizes are determined by measuring the circumference of a person’s head about 1/2 inch (1 centimeter) above the ears. Inches or centimeters may be used depending on the manufacturer. Felt hats can be stitched for a custom fit. Some hats, like hard hats and baseball caps, are adjustable. Other hats come in standard sizes, such as small, medium, large and extra large.

Traditional hat size is worked out by adding the fore and the aft side to side measurements (in inches) and then dividing by two. In the United Kingdom, an equivalent hat size is an eighth of an inch smaller than in the United States.

From felt to straw to baseball caps, highlight your head in haute hats!

Hat Fun Fact: St. Clement, the patron saint of felt hat makers, is said to have discovered wool felt when he filled his sandals with flax fibers to protect his feet, around 800 AD.

In the Middle Ages, hats for women ranged from simple scarves to elaborate hennin, and denoted social status. Structured hats for women similar to those of male courtiers began to be worn in the late 16th century. The term “milliner” comes from the Italian city of Milan, where the best quality hats were made in the 18th century. Millinery was traditionally a woman’s occupation, with the milliner not only creating hats and bonnets, but also choosing lace, trimmings and accessories to complete an outfit.

Match your hat with your clothes and shoes to strut the streets stepping out in your own fashion rules!

For a look that is sure to excite and entice, let the brim of your hat hide your eyes…sultry and nice! (Just be careful where you walk and only look down!)

Looking sensual and hot in haute couture hats!

You’ll turn heads and decorate your own head when you walk the streets highlighted with happening hats! You’re a fashion queen that’s all that!

“Well just look at that girl with the hat decorating her gorgeous head.”

“Dressed head to toe in a flashy outfit with the main color being red.”

“She has to be taken by someone…she’s too lovely to be on her own.”

“If she’s a true independent fashion diva, she has no trouble doing things alone.”

“She definitely beats to her own drum and dresses in styles that bring her joy!”

“She grabs life with gusto…whether on her own, with other women or with a boy”

Hats: For the haute couture rebel and royal goddess in all of us!

Silver helps with the cleansing and releasing of mental, physical and emotional issues and blockages as it opens new doors and lights the way to the future.

Elegant, sensual and stunning in silver!

COLORFUL EYELASHES THAT MAKE YOUR EYES SAY “WOW”!

Colored Mascara: Alluring, intriguing, attractive! Enjoy the colorful, festive eyelash feast!

Mascara Fun Fact: Mascara is a cosmetic commonly used to enhance the eyelashes. Mascara may darken, thicken, lengthen and define the eyelashes. Normally in one of three forms – liquid, cake or cream – the modern mascara product has various formulas; however, most contain the same basic components of pigments, oils, waxes and preservatives.

Colorful eyelashes that make your eyes say “wow”!

Nancy Mangano’s Colored Mascara Fashion Tip: Although most people apply black or brown shades of mascara, wearing colorful mascara that either highlights or matches your eye color is beautiful and fun! This accentuates your eyes and causes them to pop, much like a gorgeous picture frame sets off a photograph!

Mascara Fun Fact: Mascara is defined as a cosmetic substance for darkening, lengthening, curling, coloring and thickening the eyelashes. Mascara is applied with a brush or a rod and can be used on the eyebrows as well.

Colored mascara will make your eyes look swell!

Cosmetic Fun Fact: Aesthetic adornment is a cultural universal and mascara can be documented in ancient Egypt. Records from around 4000 BC refer to a substance called kohl that was used to darken eyelashes, eyes and eyebrows. Often composed of galena, malachite and charcoal or soot, honey and water was added to keep the kohl from running. Through Egypt’s influence, kohl usage persisted in the Babylonian, Greek and Roman Empires.

Following the fall of the Roman Empire, kohl fell into disuse on the European continent, where it had been considered solely a cosmetic, however, it continued to be widely used in the Middle East for religious purposes. Ingredients in modern mascara include pigmentation, oils and waxes. Which ingredients are chosen relies on how the mascara is manufactured.

Types of oils used to make mascara are mineral oils, linseed oil, castor oil, eucalyptus oil, lanolin, oil of turpentine and sesame oil. Waxes usually found in mascara are paraffin wax, carnauba was and beeswax.

Be the queen in eyelashes so colorful you’ll stand out and be seen!

Let loose and have some fun wearing colored mascara whether you have an easy day or a hectic day on the run!

“I love the color of your eyes, so gorgeous and green.”

“I believe it’s my green mascara that makes my eyes so cool and serene.”

“On closer inspection, I do believe that it is your colored mascara that caught my eye.”

“The eyes always have it when you color them up. You should give it a try.”

“Glamorous, decorated eyes are a beautiful sight to behold.”

“Colored mascara adds oomph and wow to the eyes, I’ve been told!”

Colored Mascara: Mesmerizing, breathtaking and bold!

FALSE EYELASHES ARE WORTH BATTING AN EYELASH FOR!

The most essential way to make your eyes stand out is by accentuating and enhancing the eyelashes. The shape and width of the eyebrow is a close second.

Long, full, luxurious eyelashes are like the lovely picture frame that enhances the picture and makes the photograph look larger, more inviting and allows it to stand out. Lengthy, dark eyelashes add depth, beauty and glamour to your eyes.

One way to ensure great, larger than life eyelashes? False eyelashes!

An eyelash is one of the hairs that grows at the edge of the eyelid. Eyelashes protect the eye from debris and perform some of the same functions as whiskers do on a cat or mouse, in the sense that they are sensitive to being touched, thus providing a warning that on object (such as an insect) is near they eye, which then closes reflexively.

Eyelash Fun Fact: Long eyelashes are considered a sign of beauty in many cultures. Accordingly, some women seek to enhance their eyelash length artificially, using eyelash extensions or false eyelashes. Permanent eyelash tints and eyelash extensions have also become popular procedures, even in fairly basic salons.

False eyelashes are worth batting an eyelash for!

Five Steps to Make False Eyelashes Look Natural:

  1. Choose eyelashes that have a clear or invisible band.
  2. Wear single or trio lashes over strip lashes.
  3. Use dark lash glue that won’t leave a white residue.
  4. Apply false eyelashes to your real lashes.
  5. Use dark black mascara to blend your real and false eyelashes together.

Nancy Mangano’s False Eyelash Tip: I find false eyelashes to look absolutely beautiful, even when it is apparent that the eyelashes are fake. Much like wearing makeup. Eye shadow adds color, eyeliner adds definition, false eyelashes add lush, full lashes. It doesn’t matter if they are fake…the completed effect is gorgeous! All cosmetics enhance your appearance when applied correctly, yet no one professes that all makeup is natural! So, hail false eyelashes. Your beautiful, beguiling eyes will thank you!

Eyelash Fun Fact: Kohl, a black putty (usually antimony sulfide or lead sulfide) has been worn as far back as the Bronze Age to protect and enhance lashes. In Ancient Egypt, kohl was used as well by the wealthy and the royal to protect their eyes from the sand, dust and bugs.

Modern eye makeup includes mascara, eyeliner, eye putty and eye shadow to emphasize the eyes.

False Eyelash Fun Fact: The twentieth century saw the beginning of convincing false eyelashes, popular in the 1960s. There are also different tools that can be used on the lashes, such as eyelash curlers or mascara shields (mascara guards).

Animal Eyelash Fun Fact: Lashes, being hair, are found in mammals. Camels’ eyelashes are remarkably long and thick. Horses and cows feature eyelashes as well. Inherited eyelash problems are common in some breeds of dogs and horses.

Who is that bathing beauty batting her beautiful, bountiful eyelashes?

My oh my, where did you get those exaggerated eyelashes that add oomph and wow to your eyes? Your long eyelashes certainly enlarge your eye size!

Eyelash Fun Fact: Latisse was introduced in the first quarter of 2009 by Allergan as the first drug to receive Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for eyelash growth. Latisse is a solution of bimatoprost, the active component of the glaucoma medication Lumigan. According to Allergan, noticeable eyelash growth occurs within 16 weeks. Growth is reported to occur primarily on the upper eyelashes.

The past decade has seen the rapid increase in the development of eyelash conditioners. These conditioners are designed to increase the health and length of your lashes. Many eyelash conditioners utilize seed extract, minerals, and other chemicals to achieve these results.

For a trend that’s here to stay and adds luster and luxury to your eyes, go the false eyelash way!

“I couldn’t help but eye the radiant eyelashes the surround your eyes!”

“My long, full, divine eyelashes extend and add depth to my eye size.”

“Will you do me a favor and bat your gorgeous, glorious eyelashes at me?”

“I’ll give you a playful, bashful look with a demure, youthful glare, do you see?”

“Oh wow. To have your full attention and your lovely eyes focused on me is fine!”

“It’s a much better, complimentary way to flirt than asking “What’s your sign?”‘

False Eyelashes: For exquisite eyes that stand out and look simply divine!

THE POWER OF PINK IN FASHION: PLEASING, PRETTY AND PASSIONATE!

In fashion, color can make or break a garment. The same dress can look sensual and elegant in black, yet youthful and cheery in yellow. One color that tends not to dominate the fashion world, yet stands out when you see it worn, is pink.

Whether you prefer to go daring and bold and dress head-to-toe pink, or you choose to offset your white outfit with pink pumps and a pink purse, the color pink in fashion is grand…don’t you think?

Pink Fun Fact: Pink is a pale red color, a combination of red and white. Pink was first used as a color name in the late 17th century. The color pink is named after the flowers, pinks.

Variations of the Color Pink:

  1. Blush – Similar to skin color, a pale pink.
  2. Fuschia – A blend of deep pink and blue.
  3. Hot Pink – Neon pink, a striking pink.
  4. Orchid – A lavender pink.
  5. Pastel Pink – A soft, muted pink.
  6. Rose Pink – A deep, rich pink.
  7. Salmon Pink – A touch of orange to offset the pink.

No matter the shade of pink that you’re dressed in, when you strut down the street in striking pink you’ll bat a definite fashion win!

Pink Fun Fact: In color psychology, the color pink represents compassion, nurturing and love. Pink relates to unconditional love and understanding, and the giving and receiving of nurturing. The ‘red’ in pink contains the need for action, while the mix of ‘white’ helps pink achieve the potential for success.

Pink clothing exudes femininity and romance, affection and intimacy.

The power of pink in fashion: pleasing, pretty and passionate!

Positive Keywords Associated with the Color Pink:

  1. Unconditional Love
  2. Romantic Love
  3. Compassion
  4. Understanding
  5. Nurturing
  6. Romance
  7. Warmth
  8. Hope
  9. Calming
  10. Sweetness
  11. Naiveté
  12. Femininity
  13. Intuitive Energy

Pink Fun Fact: The color pink has been described in literature since ancient times. Pink wasn’t a common color in the fashion of Middle Ages; nobles preferred brighter reds, such as crimson. However, the color pink did appear in women’s fashion, and in religious art. In the high Renaissance painting the Madonna of the Pinks by Raphael, the Christ child is presenting a pink flower to the Virgin Mary. The pink was a symbol of marriage, showing a spiritual marriage between the mother and child.

As far as accessories (which always make or break an outfit), I tend to favor pink purses and pink high heels. These two pink accessories together say “I’m confident”, “I’m fashion fabulous”, “I’m fashion fun”!

Pink Fashion Fun Fact: The golden age of the color pink entering mainstream fashion was the Rococo Period (1720-1777) in the 18th century, when pastel colors became very fashionable in all the courts of Europe. Pink was particularly championed by Madame de Pompadour (1721-1764), the mistress of King Louis XV of France, who wore combinations of pale blue and pink, and had a particular tint of pink made for her by the Sevres porcelain factory, created by adding nuances of blue, pink and yellow.

The color pink can signify good health, being ‘in the pink’ and success, as in ‘everything’s rosy’.

Pink clothing, whether shocking or pastel, when wrapped in pink you’ll look youthful, sweet and well!

For a color of clothing that is sure to lighten and lift your mood, go with a full set of pink: style, playfulness and attitude!

“I’m going to an amazing dinner party next week and I’m thinking of wearing black.”

“You will look magnificent no doubt, but you’ll blend in to the back.”

“Perhaps you’re right. There will probably be more black dresses than I can count.”

“I say wear any shade of pink…you’ll look unique and you’ll certainly stand out.”

“Maybe I’ll wear pink chiffon…or find a neon satin or silk pink dress.”

“Go full fashion pink…add pink earrings, a pink necklace, dress pink to impress!”

Pink Clothing: All fashion divas oughta wear pink, don’t you think?

ROMANTIC FLORAL PRINTS FOR FALL FASHION!

Fall (autumn) is in the air, which means cooler temperatures, pumpkins, colorful leaves and beautiful blooming summer flowers will be going away. So, how do you keep the sunshine, summer, flower spirit in fall? By dressing in fabulous fall floral prints.

Fall is one of the four temperature seasons. Fall marks the transition from summer to winter, in September (Northern Hemisphere) or March (Southern Hemisphere), when the duration of daylight becomes noticeably shorter and temperatures cool down considerably. One of the main features of fall is the shedding of leaves from various trees.

Floral prints look summery, airy, whimsical and light, bringing pure sunshine and joy to the wearer, much like when you receive a bouquet of fresh flowers.

Flower Fun Fact: A flower, sometimes known as a blossom, is the reproductive structure found in plants that are floral. The biological function of a flower is to effect reproduction, usually by providing a mechanism for the union of sperm with eggs. In addition to facilitating the reproduction of flowering plants, flowers have long been admired and used by humans to bring beauty to their environment.

Global Symbolism of Flowers:

  1. Romance
  2. Ritual
  3. Religion
  4. Medicine
  5. Clothing
  6. Food Source

Romantic floral prints for fall fashion!

Common Types of Flowers:

  1. Rose
  2. Daisy
  3. Lily
  4. Petunia
  5. Orchid
  6. Tulip
  7. Carnation
  8. Bird of Paradise

Floral printed garments tend to look romantic. Although flowered prints work perfect for summer, floral print garments make a grand appearance through every season!

When should I dress in floral prints? Always!

To dress in floral prints, when is the best season? Winter, spring, summer and fall, and you don’t need a reason!

Floral Design Fun Fact: Floral design, or flower arrangement, is the art of using plant materials and flowers to create a pleasing and balanced composition. Evidence of refined floristry is found as far back as the culture of Ancient Egypt. Professionally designed floral arrangements or artwork incorporate the elements of floral design: line, form, space, texture, and color. The principles of floral design include balance, proportion, rhythm, contrast, harmony and unity.

When flowers are printed on your pantsuit or your dress, whether the flowers are balanced or mixed and muted, you’ll stand out from all the rest!

In addition to floral prints and flower arrangements, floral design includes making wreaths, nosegays, garlands, festoons, corsages, boutonnieres and bows.

There are many styles of floral prints. The Eastern, Western and European styles have all influenced the commercial floral industry as it is today. Floral printed clothes can be characterized by symmetrical, asymmetrical, horizontal and vertical designs and floral placements.

Hour by hour and day by day, flower power clothing is here to stay!

“You’re a sight for sore eyes in your colorful floral pantsuit, so gorgeous and bright!”

“Yes, I want to hang on to the summer flowers, so if I wear them I might!”

“The mix of roses, carnations and daisies on the sleeves looks simply divine.”

“I’m impressed you know your flowers so well. I find that truly sublime.”

“So the fact that I admire fashion and know my flowers impresses you?”

“It seems we think alike. We’d probably get along splendidly, us two.”

Floral Prints: Romantic and whimsical…airy and light. Try it, you’ll like it…and feel fashion right!
