jillgg's good life (for less) | a style blog Mail Bag: Topping a Full Skirt Hello I have been reading your blog a fair while now, and it’s pretty great. I’m writing to ask a bit of fashion help from someone who isn’t my husband, or his mum and dad (with whom we live; I’m English living in the states so few real life friends). I have loads of skirts that are fairly voluminous and I’m struggling with what to wear on my top half. Have you any advice you can offer? ThanksLindsayI, too, love voluminous skirts. I agree that camis are for sleep or underwear. To balance out the voluminous skirt, I recommend a top made of a woven fabric. There is no need to rule out knits altogether. For cooler weather or an air-conditioned office, a nipped in blazer looks fabulous over a full skirt. Whatever top you choose, the most important thing to remember is that you want to show off the slimmest parts of your upper body. Here are a few more of my favorite outfits featuring a full skirt and some of the tops and tricks I’ve mentioned above.
10 awesome innovations changing the future of fashion Suzanne Lee's kombucha fabric/Video screen capture Textile production is dirty dirty dirty -- one of the dirtiest industries in the world in fact. Why? Partly because of the damage that cotton crops and synthetic fiber production inflicts on the environment, and partly because of seriously outdated manufacturing methods used to dye and finish fabric. According to the United States Energy Administration, the textile industry in the U.S. is the 5th largest contributor to CO2 emissions in the country. But enough of the depressing facts: As consumers are becoming increasingly aware and clothing manufacturers are stepping up to more environmental accountability, technology is taking off -- and there have been huge advances. From fabric out of food, beer bottles and more to dying with air, and web sites that know your exact measurements, these 10 awesome technologies are changing fashion as we know it. 1.

Über Chic for Cheap How To Wear A Pair Of Riding Boots For Fall « : TheGloss - A gloss on beauty, fashion, style, love and more I have never really consider buying a pair of riding boots to incorporate in my Fall ensembles since I like my boots with at least 2 inches heels. However after perusing the Marshall’s Fall 2009 Lookbook wherein a pair of riding boots was featured in different looks , I changed my mind. Let me illustrate How To Wear Riding Boots with the help of Marshall’s Fall 2009 Collection which I think you would love and approve of. For an early Fall ensemble, try a deep colored ruffled top underneath a gray bomber jacket, with sequined skirt and the riding boots. No need for tights coz it’s not that cold yet. The riding boots would also go nicely over skinny jeans paired with a floral top, accented with a fringe scarf and bold necklace. How cute is this black and white floral dress underneath a boyfriend blazer with textured tights and the riding boots? Riding boots and Boho Style sounds interesting, no?. (Images : Marshall’s Press)
