Tips for updating your look on a budget

Here are a few ways to update and enhance your look without breaking the bank:

Ruffled blouses-white or in colors-they will add some whimsy to your look.

Belted anything- sweaters, coats, jackets, blouses – Skinny belts, fabric belts and wide belts, add a touch of “now” to your wardrobe.

*Embellished tops and bejeweled shoes- Buy them on sale or save even more money by making your own… pick up flat backed jewels at fabric or craft store and glue on with fabric glue.

*Multiple necklaces- Want the runway look of long chains draped around your neck? Mix them up or wear multiples of the same necklace. Check out the discount accessory stores.

*Lashes: curl them if they are straight-apply 2 coats of mascara. If your lashes are really short or thin consider playing with individual lashes or strip lashes. Use Duo adhesive and realize that there is a learning curve to learning how to apply the lashes. Look, It is not brain surgery, with practice you can do this!

*Lip stains and long-wear lipstick: No need to buy $30.00 Department store brands. Check out Cover Girl OUTLAST lip color at the drug or discount stores.

Worldwide Fashion tips on allexperts.com

I decided to send in my resume to allexperts.com to see if they were interested in having me as a fashion expert. I was happily accepted and I have been getting questions about fashion from all over the world. I was surprised to hear from people in the Middle East and Africa. I love brainstorming about their fashion dilemmas and feeling connected to women I will never actually meet in person. It underscores the belief that all of us want to look our best, no matter what our age or where we live.
