white shoes!

Hello All, this is Denae Doyle of FemImage
When I attended Fashion design school, there were so many rules. Now, it seems anything goes.
However, for some events…some women “want to get it right”.
Ann ask “Denae, do I wear white shoes during the summer”?. The answer now is No.
I would not wear black, instead wear wheat, off white or a light spring color.
Many woman do carry a wheat or a white purse. It is best not to wear white shoes, hose, and purse!

New Bra For Holiday Dresses

Hi All, as I blogged yesterday, I have been looking for a sensual but sophisticated holiday dress to wear (for Thanksgiving, Christmas, parties, or even maybe New Years Eve). I have found, from previous years….that it is very smart to buy a red, black, type dress…about this time of the year, as women shop early for the holiday dresses, and shoes. You will get to wear it so many times. As I told you, go to http://www.bostonproper.com if you’re looking for a really sensual but fabulous looking dress. I bought one on the cover and one other solid black. Okay, herewith the problem.
Most of the evening or cocktail, or dressy long dresses have a low front. What Bra to wear??
I was shocked, a normal bra is to high in the lower cut fronts of these dresses. So, I shopped on line to SOMA. They have the best. sexy, bras. For the lower cut dresses for any TG woman, I would suggest a push up bra, in black. Wear pads if needed. I recently lost about 10 pounds, so I am now a cup size lower, so I will be putting pads in my strapless bra too!
Try http://www.soma.com for great bras and panties. If the dress is short (two or three inches above the knee) shop for thigh highs that will STAY UP. You may have to pay a little more, but when you cross your legs while sitting, they will not come down.

If you have any holiday party or New Years party, start shopping now!!
I love shopping for bras!

Winter Clothing Comes Into The Stores Sept 1 2013

Hello girls. Many of you have been asking about buying clothing. It is always best to purchase clothing at the beginning of each season, so items are not “picked over with few sizes”. Begin shopping for your winter clothing for cooler weather as early as Labor Day. You will see summer clothing at large discounts, as they want to clear out the summer clothing and make room for the Fall clothing. The same goes for shopping for Spring and Summer. You should begin shoppping for your summer clothing, at Easter.

Herewith a few tips for finding your new individual feminine style!

  • Exude your personal brand with style.  Get the inspiration and direction you’ve been longing for that modernizes and revitalizes [and in some cases actually discovers] your authentic personal image.
  • Be recognized by your consistent personal style.  With the right tools and mentoring to help you build confidence, you’ll be poised to attain your professional and personal goals.  Make stronger professional and social impressions, or get more positive attention from a romantic interest by developing, exuding, and being consistent with your personal style.
  • Have an ideal, current wardrobe that suits your personality, goals, and lifestyle.  Own and wear clothing that consistently supports your personal image and style, giving you the extra confidence and daily comfort to dress for any situation with ease.
  • You put your effort into looking great, not endless hours of shopping.  Managing your self-care is time consuming. If you have problems with selecting female clothing, hire an image consultant. Or, many stores such as Macy’s has a free, personal shopper. Tell them, your tg and considering transitioning, and you need help putting some pieces together. This is such a big help, as they know every piece of clothing in their store. I use them often, when I am shopping for myself or for a client!
  • So, prepare for your winter shopping. Boots, coats, warm caps, gloves, lots of accessories and not spending a lot of money on ONE outfit. With accessories, you can add this or that, and use the same black skirt or pants, with everything! For the beginner, i take my clients to a less expensive store, such as Marshalls, Ross, etc. until you establish your unique feminine style.
  • And, have fun!  Denae Doyloe

Non Run Panty Hose by National

Hello Ladies, this is Denae of www.FemImage.com

I had a friend tell me about a pair of Panty Hose by National–which promises not to run or your money back. In addition, they come 3 pairs to a package, and are perfect for the TG as they are not as sheer as the regular panty hos but not opaque. They will cover a leg with light hair, again ideal for the CD. So, I put it to the test. I found them comfortable and  no runs! Go to their web site for colors and styles. More information below.

What Color For My Hosiery

 For my next blog on walking, I suggest you get a great pair of hose with a shoe  comfortable enough to walk in.  If your a CD and do not shave your legs, the new dark hosiery with designs, are ideal for your situation. And–their in style!

Hosiery is the finishing touch, not the focal point. A lot of women get this wrong by wearing hose that are either too dark or too light for the rest of their ensemble. Of course, if your CD and do not shave your legs, perhaps a darker shade is your option. For others, herewith some basic 101 rules to help you.

Here are some guidelines:

1. Hosiery needs to be in the same color base as your garment. Don’t mix warm hosiery colors with cool garment colors.

2. To instantly look taller and trimmer, go monochromatic by matching the color tone of your hosiery to your shoe and your hem.

3. With neutral colored skirt or pants, match all three color elements. Example: black skirt, off-black hose, black shoes.

4. Colored hosiery for dressy or business situations needs to be very sheer. Charcoal gray or off-black is more subtle than a solid black.

5. Colored hosiery may either match the garment or the accessory/accent color.
If the hose match the color of the dress or skirt, they add the illusion of height and slimness. This concept works especially well with neutrals like navy, gray, brown, beige, taupe, and even burgundy and rust, but NOT with red.

If the hosiery color matches the accessory/accent color, it should not outshine the garment color.

6. With a brightly colored garment, choose neutral shoes and match hose to shoes. Example: red dress, taupe hose, and taupe shoes.

7. Two-color spectator pumps look best with hose matched to the lighter color, NOT the darker one.

8. Very dark, light or bright hosiery colors and patterns or textures draw attention to your legs.

9. Off-white or light beige can be worn with black during the summer season.

10. Keep leg coverings in the same mood and weight as your shoes. Chunky, casual shoes work with heavier, textured hose or socks.

11. Control top hose are more durable than regular hose, and Lycra extends the resiliency of both.

12. Avoid emergencies by purchasing hose in quantity and keeping a spare pair in your desk drawer and glove compartment.

So what’s one of the biggest bugaboos I see? Wearing dark hose to hide spider veins. Unless your ensemble is dark, you’re calling attention TO your legs, not AWAY from them. Dress in darker colors to match the hose, or wear a longer skirt to cover what you want to hide.

Wearing hosiery gives you a refined, polished look that can’t be beat, so do incorporate it in your wardrobe.  With a few guidelines and a nice hosiery wardrobe, you can look great no matter what occasion comes your way.

I hope this helps give you a guideline when purchasing and when coordinating.
