How to Choose a Necklace for Your Neckline

This is a handy reference chart to help you choose the right necklace to go with the neckline of the shirt or top you are wearing. Keep this around to refer to when you are getting ready. Eventually, you will get a routine down and know what goes with what, but this is always a good reference, especially when you get something new.

DIY Cap Toe Shoes

Bra Strap Concealer

Most ladies often complain that some of the best shirts, blouses, or dresses fall off the shoulder and the bra strap ends up showing. This is an easy fix with just a couple stitches of a fabric strip with snaps on it. It is sewn into the underside of the top of the shoulder and you snap it around the bra strap. It holds your blouse in place and never exposes your bra strap.
