While most of us probably look at the 80’s as a fashion disaster, I have to admit that a few of the trends were actually kind of fun and fashionable. Once you push away some of the more outrageous hair and jewelry, that is. With many retro trends coming back today, I thought I’d share a few 80’s trends that I happen to love.
Now, t-shirts with shoulder pads strikes me as a bit ridiculous, but one has got to admit that a well worn blazer or business suit with shoulder pads actually looked sharp and fashionable. Sure, sometimes things got a little bit crazy with the loud prints and neon, but when done right?
All I can say is that I wouldn’t mind this part of the shoulder pad trend coming back.
This one has actually been coming back and I find it exciting. While I’m more comfortable in clothing that is a little more fitted, I have to say that oversized tops look fabulous–especially with a belt at the waist. Apparently I’m not alone in thinking so, either.
I have loved fingerless gloves since I was a kid. Perhaps it was because I felt pretty powerful while wearing them or because I could keep my hands warm and still have use of my fingers. Either way, I’ve always found fingerless gloves to be a really neat accessory, especially for the fall. Knit, leather, lace. . .they still seem to come in every possible variety!
Before I go much further here, I have to say that I’m biased. I come from Florida and have an unhealthy love for the beach and palm trees. Therefore, it is safe to conclude that my love for tropical prints may be a tad bit opinionated. At least I can say it’s a fun and relaxed look.
Apart from the big hair, this is probably the fashion trend that the 80’s is best known for. Sure, sometimes the use of neon can easily become excessive, but it’s so fun and exciting. We could all use a little pop of color in our closets anyways, can’t we?
What are your favorite 80’s fashion trends? Let me know in the comments below!
We’ve all heard the word “Botox” before but what does it mean? These cosmetic injections have been used for years to treat a variety of medical issues and are a fast and easy treatment that offers incredible results. Studies have shown that Botox can treat a variety of ailments that include an overactive bladder, excessive sweating and migraine headaches. But by far, its most popular use is as a cosmetic procedure to reduce or eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
If you’re interested in obtaining cosmetic injections, you’ll be happy to know that the process is over in a quick pinch. The formula will be injected directly into the muscles of the area that you want treated. This will minimize problem areas like the frown lines between your eyebrows, deep creases in the forehead and the crow’s feet around the eyes that naturally appear as you age. It has also been shown to be an effective treatment for reducing the smile lines around the mouth and may help some to lift the center portion of their upper lip. For all these reasons and more, Botox is a miracle worker.
The procedure is fast, easy to do and relatively discomfort-free. Patients will often feel a small sting or a slight burning when the injection is administered and may have some tingling for a few hours after, but it is fairly minimal. Physically, some redness and a very slight swelling at the site of the injection may be present following treatment. A reduction in the appearance of your wrinkles will be noticeable immediately after, but the results will become even more obvious during the weeks and days following the procedure. The effects will last for months and regular Botox treatments can be administered to keep you looking your best.
Did you know that Botox is sought out in the United States approximately three million times every year? It’s also performed on men and women of any age, most often for those between the ages of 40 and 60 years old. Its popularity is probably due to the fact that it is a safe and easy way to get fast results. This treatment boasts an 80 per cent success rate for patients that will see the results they wanted in a week or less. For those clients whocontinue to get regular injections,they often notice that their wrinkles begin to become much less noticeable. It is believed that the relaxation of the muscles caused by Botox “re-trains” the skin not to form your wrinkles again.
This outpatient procedure is entirely non-invasive. The injections are administered quickly in the doctor’s office. Clients are then able to return to theirnormal routine immediately without any down time. Your results will typically last for approximately four to six months before they begin to wear off. Injections can be administered again, as soon as the effects begin to fade. If you’re interested in obtaining this procedure, look for a reputable clinic with an impressive track record. If you’re in the greater Toronto area, Skin Vitality has several locations in both the downtown core and outer suburbs and states on their website that they’ve injected over one million patients in the last year, making them the most popular Botox provider in Canada. (Go to Skinvitality.ca/toronto/toronto-botox to find out more about their rates and physicians.)But no matter which clinic you choose, you’ll want to go a company that has a great reputation and a long history of administering Botox to clients so you can get great, long-lasting results. A small change to your physical appearance can work wonders on your self-esteem. Consider getting Botox today.
As the cooler weather is coming in this fall, I’m sure that we are all busily storing away our summer wardrobes (unless, like me, you are still dealing with 80 degree temperatures down south). But that doesn’t mean we should have to be finished with every summer favorite.
Personally, I think crop tops look adorable. Even more so in the fall. Without further ado, here are a few ways you can continue to be the cream of the crop (I’m lousy at puns, aren’t I?) all the way through fall.
Nothing screams autumn like a skirt and some tights. Why not give that skirt a high waist and pair it with a long sleeved crop top? Not only will you look absolutely adorable, you will have a touch of that edgy look that everyone is going for these days!
If you’re looking for something a little more casual, try out a cropped jacket. You still get the extra warmth on your arms and you look fabulous. Not to mention, they are perfect to wear over other tops without people telling you to either wear a crop top without something under it or don’t wear one at all.
Despite people saying such things, there are really plenty of ways to wear crop tops over other tops and still look fashionable. Try wearing a fancier or patterned crop top over a solid, neutral colored top or a solid colored crop top over a patterned top. This one may require a little more playing around with, but when it is pulled off correctly, it looks spectacular!
How do you wear crop tops in the fall? Let me know in the comments below!
