Victoria Beckham will open UK store as she juggles family and fashion

     The mother of three boys and a daughter has finally decided to open her own store after designing and co-designing countless sexy outfits for women. It is a big step for Victoria who wants to have the best of both world: Being a store owner and a parent. 

    The pop singer and the mother of David Beckham’s children finds it a little bit hard to juggle family and  her love for fashion. It’s good to hear a celebrity worrying about not being able to spend time with her children. Some of them have no problem hiring a new mommy for them. 

       I personally don’t care if she opens a store or not, whether it is in the US or the in the UK. You will never find me in it, but it’s a great thing to see a woman doing her own thing and not depending on her hubby’s money.

        Remember when we used to pay $19.99 for a good pair of Fioni shoes at PAYLESS? Not anymore. Now with most of the designers trying to appeal to some of us who don’t have a six figure income, even payless shoes are getting more expensive every year.

  1. #1  Lyndie Side Bow Pumps (Fioni) $29.99
  2. #2 Cynthia Sling ( Christian Siriano for Payless) $54.99 Reg. $17.99 sale
  3. #3 Kosmic Platform Pump (Brash) $34.99 
  4. #4 Kim Toe Chillie Slip On ( Isabel Toledo) $42.99 for Payless)
  5. #5 Letoile Peep Toe Sling ( Christian Siriano for Paless) $29.99
  6. #6 Lunar Platform Wedge ( Brash) $34.99

     I am all for great, comfortable shoes. But to call a store PAYLESS and sell shoes that go up to $54.99 is a little misleading.

Ashley Madekwe at The College Television Awards

 This is a picture of  Ashley Madekwe on the red carpet at the 34th College Television Awards Gala at the JW Marriott at L.A.  You may have seen her on Revenge, which airs on ABC every Sunday night.

She wore a Monique Lhuillier dress with a Jimmy Choo clutch and heels. She completed her look with Baccarat jewelry.

She was a presenter at the 34th College Television
 Awards.
 
The dress does have a mustard color hidden somewhere and the clutch did a good job bringing it out. I can understand why she is not wearing a necklace, but what about some earrings? The bottom line is she pulled it off without them.


The Simplest Way To Wear A Pair of Bow Front Shorts

Six Simple Jewelry Rules Every Woman Should Live By

  1. Make your necklace work for you: A long strand that hits below your bust makes you look taller and leaner.
  2. Not sure how to wear your bracelets? Bangle up: A stack of skinny bangles can do the trick.
  3. It’s okay to add an oversized watch as one bold accessory.
  4. A ring should always flatter your fingers. Wide rings for thin, long fingers, narrow bands or ring styles that extend toward the knuckles for short fingers.
  5. Consider the shape of your face when shopping for earrings: Pendants for a round or square face. Studs, buttons, or short drop earrings for an oval face. Choose hoops when you are not sure.
  6. Try wearing one big piece of accessory at a time. One that people will remember. One wide cuff bracelet is a great example.
