Fashion Modern Style for Less

Hi there, Diamond Glamour Girls

How fun is this for me. Anyone, that lived through the era of the late 60's early 70's to see the clothing styles return.  Fashion statements have always been a trend. It is so much fun to watch new generations have some of the same things I had had in my youth. What a blessing!

Currently, it is off the shoulder and anklet pants. The off the shoulder blouses were called angle blouses and dresses and the anklet pants were called 3/4 length pants. I have a feeling fashion is going to be big in 2017. Maybe that has to do with Mrs. Trump being in the white house. She has a scenes of fashion that reminds reporters of the Jackie and Bobby era, which I personally loved. I remember I became a DYI young lady. Reality, I was much younger than that. My era if you were female you were always consider a young lady.  I learned to sew and learned how to create fashion for less. It was a battle my mother and I always had. Who was better seamstress. I became very good at sewing a straight line and sewing buttons in. If I could save the money for the fabric then I could use her sewing machine. I started learning how to sew very young with my barbie dolls. I would draw them and she slowly started teaching me how to sew them. I would take my paints, crayons and paper and design fabric, draw dresses and as I grew older tried to make the patterns to sew the cloths. The better I got at it the more competition I had from my mother and others.  It is always a love / hate relationship of who is right? Her fashion, was not mine, her people where mot my people, however we can learn many things from the generations before use as well as the generations after us. Either way it lead me to taking classes and then entering college to study and learn what I could. That's when I discovered how competitive the field is and decided on teaching instead. That's enough about me. What I want to encourage all the Diamond Glamour Girls out there is to do great things with their lives. Whatever, you love doing do it with the best you you can do. I have to be honest and tell you I have a great love for fashion and what you can do with one piece to create many.

Get your fashion books, sketch books, drawing pencils,  and start designing...The Camelot Years of fashion our back and lets watch it develop together. I say this because of all the comparisons of Mr. and Mrs. Trump to the Kennedy's. Although my belief is a little different. Melanie Trump was just a baby then, so it's not a baby thing its a real time, real world thing. I laugh with those that want to stay in an era and not change and I covet those of you who are born and this time with all the new things/ tools, technology and equipment to use in your new lives and career choices. Many new careers will open this year as this first lady expresses herself through fashion. I am excited about what she will do, I believe not like newscasters that she has more to offer than just good lucks and fashion. I believe she will not only make the United States of America proud of her role as the first lady, she will also make woman proud to be a young lady, woman.

 This blouse was called spaghetti straps I'm not sure what they call it today, however I do know for the DYI (Do It Yourself) Girl...you can sew it up in less than a day..several hours.  The challenge is there for you to take.
 For the mom's who still want fashion off thee shoulders however still want their children to find them dignified, respectable when in public you can always throw on a little cover up like this one.
 The 3/4 pants or anklets are best left to the young woman who can show off that pretty little piece of them. How fun it is to be young and fashion thought worthy.
 The off the shoulder, not. well kind of. It represents the willing to show a little shoulder, however not willing to be off the shoulders.
Here is a simple off the shoulders blouse with that would take maybe an hour to sew. Planned correctly it could look as glamours as you'd like.

Don't want to be spend thee money on trendy clothing? Then I found a cute store that will help you purchase the clothing for less. The name of it is Styles for Less, the fashion is trendy and will last for a season, for those on a budget or just want cloths for a season for the trend.

Lets Talk Travel

Hi there, Reader;

I am so excited to share this one with you that I will be posting this on all four of my blogs. It is the best there is for Honeymoon or Vacation.  Have you ever heard of getting paid for travel? I had not heard of it either until I read and saw this video from Time Magazine and Money Magazine. Sounds like a great way to save money and start planning a honeymoon to be remembered. Yes, there are couple who sometimes what to forget their honeymoon because it was ill planned. I confess to all of you I loved my honeymoon and all the little surprises my groom planned for us. It just wasn't long enough because work changed the start dates and called him.

Here are my suggestions.

1. Let your supervisor know that you are requesting time off.  Not early, nor late, each work handbook has the number of days you are suppose to submit the paperwork so do it at the appropriate time. I have heard of workers.

2. Don't tell them you are getting married if you are planning a small wedding and not inviting them. If you have to submit a reason why. The put small intimate wedding. It may or may not create hurt feelings in the workplace. It's the same mentality as when your a child and someone doesn't get invited to the birthday party.

3. Take the time to learn the interest of your wife/husband before you plan the wedding. Don't take them to the middle of Africa to camp if they are all about loving city life. It doesn't mean you can't plan a trip like that latter. It is just not advisable for your honeymoon.

4. Know how much your going to spend and then if possible double it. We all have shopping moments Plus when traveling it is better to have too much money rather than too little. Isn't that true about life.

5. Enjoy your honey...It should be a time to better get to know each other. Make future plans. Talk about nothing and talk about everything before the big responsibilities set in. What is that responsibility? You've lived together and dated for a while. Maybe, you don't live together... It's called life and daily living.

This is a disclaimer, although I am registered travel agent, I am not receiving any money at this time from these companies for writing about their magazine and video link,

Soap for Your Phone

Hi there, Reader:

I have to tell you I don't want to mislead anyone by this blog, however I am learning a little about technology. I know enough to realize it is an industry so advanced in thinking that I don't totally understand all of it. That is the point of this blog. I am not savvy enough to understand how this thing works, however I am smart enough learn from others.

I first heard of this product from a young woman named Justin on You Tube. She is such a smart young lady, I watch her video to see what the latest is. She understood about the drones or is it drones and what happened and I am impressed she has the voice to tell others.

She titled it "My Favorite Christmas Gift".

I just got back from Best Buy and discovered it is not on sale there yet. However, I started thinking about the principle of a tanning bed. I know it was originally designed for however there are draw backs to tanning beds. It used to turn the skin orange. They affected nutrition in the human body and made people appear different than what they normally looked. Now I know no-one is an IPhone or are they? Non-the-less what will the long term affects of the product do for the phone. I do believe it can be used with any product, however I am not certain. Learn and educate yourselves before using.


I do love the idea of having something to sanitize my phone and I use the ultra violet red light in stores as often as possible such as target. I read that it also kills germs. I also use a sanitizes on the phone to wipe it down. I thought it was enough. Now that I have read about this product and understand the importance of it, I am all for an item that keeps a human healthy, happy and well fed. Too bad it doessn't fix dinner for my iphone and serve it too.
