Fashion is fab, fun and fantastic but sometimes there is danger and even heartbreak! Here are some helpful tips to help you avoid the biggest high fashion risks!
Beware of Hair!
Unless you’re one of the lucky few, you probably have a love/hate relationship with your hair. Fashion dictates that your hair follow the current trend be it big, bland or beehive! Beware the dangers of hair… a clear fashion risk. Yes, here we could discuss the many troublesome potential health concerns of over-coloring but hey, who (in their right mind) is giving that up? YOLO right? So, why worry, not a thing to be done…clearly, a necessary evil. Two dangers you MUST be aware of with hair: overheating and bugs! What? Yes, when going for the big or the flat you blow dry, you hot iron, you curl, you roll… all HOT, HOT, HOT! Be sure to consume lots of liquids (wine is always a good choice or something yummy over lots of ice) while toiling over the hot stove iron!
Another serious danger of big hair is the potential for… yes, the ultimate nightmare… getting a bug caught in there. Can you even imagine the terror?! When going for bigger is better (truthfully sometimes it IS true…) avoid sweet smelling or flowery hair spray. Other than that…stay indoors for heaven sake!
Oh, My Aching Feet!
Yes, ladies we are all a SLAVE to our real fashion passion…SHOES! Both a love and, frankly, a pain. They pinch our toes, rub our heels, blister and callus just us about everywhere! Don’t even get us started on arches, ankles, aching calves…Every shoe whore, an accurate if not exactly affectionate term, must have the regular pedi, a man with good hands for the ever-endearing foot massage, or at least a lil’ @ home lovin’ care kit – like this Party Feet Set in cooling Peppermint from Beauty.com.
Just Say NO! – Embarrassment…the biggest Fashion Risk!
We’ve all been there, done that…thrown on that top, skirt or pants and later found ourselves with the plain boring bra strap showing or unsightly printed panties or, heaven forbid, panty lines under our (formerly) hot tight pants! Please ladies…invest in a full length mirror or an honest roommate…don’t don the shirt that shows almost your entire bra (the look even looks a little, well, let’s just be honest here…trashy). If you don’t have a bra that matches your shirt (another helpful investment and almost a fashion statement these days) pick up a handy helper like BRAZA’s Happy Straps which keeps bra straps in their place!
Thongs, while not always comfortable (although some swear they don’t feel them at all…is this really possible?), are like manna from on high for avoiding the oopsie from the undies – panty lines, panties showing under the light colored bottom and panties showing (when you bend over in particular) under the short short styles of summer. Pleez ladies, we beg you…bag your bloomers for being subltly sexy rather than tight, flashy and tacky!
For fab fashion we’ll gladly part with time, comfort and cash but keep in mind these few helpful hints and you’ll be cool, (bug-free), and beautiful! Avoid these fashion risks and remember…Glam is as glam does!
