Ladies, here's some Fashion advice

Having been in the Fashion Business for more than 20 years in Europe,
I might have some useful advice for you gals and ladies.

Here is my No 1)

I am always watching the length of pants, jeans, slacks of people.
Mostly they are too short.
Long legs are cool, right?
So, why then making them looking shorter than they are?
Show what you have! Show off! And use a little trick.

Pants of all sorts GOT to be long enough to at least reach down to 1/2 of your heal.
Better an entire inch too long than just 1/4 of an inch too short.
Shoes should be worn in the color of the pants. At least close! The same is true for socks. 
ONE color all the way down and your trousers, pants, jeans never may be too short.
It makes your legs look longer.
Makes sense?

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass;
it's about learning to dance in the rain.


Happiness keeps you Sweet, Trials keep you Strong,
Sorrows keep you Human,
Failures keep you Humble,
Success keeps you Glowing,
But Only God Keeps You Going!

Whew, am I lucky

This is so true:
Marry a man/woman you love to talk to . As you get older,
their conversational skills will be more important than anything else.

Hallelujah, I got rid of my short-brained spouse.

A treat for me today

Whew, I really did something for myself today - for a change.
Just so, in the spur of a moment - because I drove by the place.
Had a spa-pedicure for the first time in 7 years. What a treat.
Now I feel like the Queen of Egypt.
Who wants to take me out to dinner?

Yeah, right, as if I would go out. What's that?

Still, a Happy New Year to everyone!

Please follow my other blog too? ! Story and History of a German Ivory Carver who happens to be my late father. It's also German/American History. I am trying to add a chapter per week.... not easy, let me tell you that. Especially in English - for me.
