Trisha Trixie Tuesday! Bespoke (Custom-Made-to-Order-MadetoMeasure)

What’s “Bespoke”?

Bespoke is an adjective for anything commissioned to a particular specification. “Custom-made”, “made to order”, “made to measure” and sometimes “hand-made” are near-synonyms.

The word bespoke is derived from the verb to bespeak, to “speak for something”, in the specialized meaning “to give order for it to be made” or commission, first cited from 1583 by the OED, with the adjective in its alternative form “bespoken” first quoted from 1607 in this sense.[1] The term is generally more prevalent in British English than American English, which tends to use “custom” instead, as in custom car, custom motorcycle etc.

So, with the bespoke items available from Trisha Trixie, you can create a customized items JUST FOR YOU! How do you do that?

GO HERE! Pick out the colors and fabric and Trisha Trixie will do the rest!

Try It Tuesday~Bare Minerals Veil

Try It Tuesday

Here we are for Try It Tuesday. I tried something different. Since I have severely, hyper-sensitive asthma I am unable to wear many cosmetics for they trigger an asthma attack. Please be clear, I have ASTHMA, not allergies.  When Miss Trisha returned from NY during Fashion Week she attended the IFBCON and  brought lots of swag and other goodies for her intern. One of those items was Bare Minerals, Mineral Veil

I tested it very carefully so as not to over expose my breathing to the powder at first. The results were good. I was still breathing. No choking. YAY! So today I took photographs of my left side as you see above. The first photo, on the left, is without any makeup whatsoever. The photo on the right is with a fine, light application of the Bare Minerals Veil powder applied. Although subtle, I do feel their is a significant difference in the over all appearance of my skin. I like it. And I wanted to share this with you too.

Just to be sure, I just had to photograph the right side of my face as well. The first photo, on the left, is without any makeup whatsoever. The photo on the left is with a fine, light application of the Bare Minerals Veil powder applied. See below.

Now, to add to this I want to say how happy I am to be able to wear this as it also has a broad spectrum SPF 25. This is always important to anyone who is out in the sun. I developed “brown patches/spots” along my jawline from a combination of sun exposure and side effect of respiratory medications.

I don’t have a big issue with my skin. I am who I am and what you see is what you get. It’s a family thing. But I do have to admit that I’m liking that this Bare Minerals Veil is “asthma friendly” for me and at the same time it smooths out my skin tone.

I do see that my photography is lacking but I hope you are able to see what I’m referring to. Do you have cosmetic health issues or just general challenges with makeup? Let us know if you do, we will be most happy to help. Everyone should feel beautiful whether they do or do not wear makeup.

Try It Tuesday~It's A Stretch

The idea of women wearing scarves tied around their neck isn’t surprising or unique. However, women wearing a tie is less common. Many years ago I colored my hair flaming red and wore men’s ties to work. It was liberating, refreshing and fun. Remembering that made me think back and reflect of how uncommon it still is. This surprised me. With all the new advances in the mind of society I really thought ties on women would be more common. But it’s not. There are businesses that require the staff, male and female, to wear a tie. But women don’t wear them “just because”. It was this line of thinking that brought me to today’s post.

Being,  claustrophobic I guess, I prefer the tie over the scarf. I’ve worn ties and scarves. The scarf is usually so thick and bulky

I feel suffocated just looking at someone else in them. I have a very hard time wearing it myself. With this issue in mind,

SensaFashion’s Trisha Trixie has contrived a very narrow, ultra-lightweight scarf for me to try out. I will be wearing it today.

She also makes Buckle Scarves TM and HoopScarves you can try.

I’ll try to get a picture of me wearing it to share with you. What about you? Will you try it? Either one? If you do let us know.

Share with us. Which one did you choose? Why did you go with your choice? Have you worn it before? Did it bother you?

Did others notice or say anything. To see my “try it” photo be sure to look on our Facebook page at the link below:

Try It Tuesday~Tye Dye Today

When I first started hearing about Tie Dye being back in fashion I must admit I cringed a little. Let me explain myself, for those who are heating up and saying “how could you not like it!” And for those agreeing, let’s take a step back and consider a few things.

Tie Dye today is not the same as it was in the 70’s. I can back that up too. I started out looking and looking with a very biased mind and eye. I was sure that today’s Tie Dye was the same as it used to be. I was sure of it. THEN, I stumbled upon these:

Now I do have to admit that the skirt alone would  not be up to par but they attached it to a nice outfit. Still not convinced?

Check out these then:

This one has a nice vibrant coloring to it which makes it more appealing. It is also not a t-shirt or shorts. The colors do not blur together in a rather neutral shade either.

Stay with me now, I have more. I am determined that you can enjoy Tie Dye as much as I’m learning to.

 
With a front and back view this is encouraging
yet I am not a fan of the sheer skirting attached
to the back of it. I personally feel that it takes 
away from the “elegance” of the dress. I must 
admit though, the shoes caught my eye first!
And it gets even better. This one has elegance and class. I might consider this dress “dance worthy”.
And here’s one you could actually wear to a nice function or even to work at the office! 
I have to add that it does have the swirl of the older Tie Dye but it seems “classier” here.
.
And speaking of the office….
For those with a more casual style, there are a few for you as well.
                                                   

                                                      
                                                              
As a final coo I add this one last photo. 
While I wouldn’t go for the shade shown here, it does tantalize the mind and 
tempt one to try it on other hosiery. Maybe Tie Dye white tights/hose?

These are not necessarily Tie to Dye for but they do put a new perspective on an old fashion idea.
I hope you find this new old fashion interesting enough to go out and “try it”. Maybe by next Tuesday?
If you do choose to, be sure to come back and share your experience with us and some photos too.

Fashion Friday~Fashion Wrap

Here we are, another Friday in our midst. At least it is for us here in Iowa, USA. If you’re Friday is different then we welcome you to come back to Friday or jump ahead to Friday, depending on where you live. Regardless of location, fashion is, well, fashionable. Let’s take a peek at this past week’s posts shall we?

We were so sick with different viruses that we missed out on Saturday Morning Special. Come back tomorrow though and we will be sure to have a Special Saturday Morning post ready to see.

Well, that’s a wrap for this Friday. Have a great weekend and be sure to come back.

Try It Tuesday~Organized Makeup

Getting organized is difficult for many. If you are one of those, here are some ideas for you to consider. If you’re already organized, there’s information for you to think about. All ideas have pros and cons and no one idea works best for everyone. Below I am sharing my insight and opinions. If you have any ideas or thoughts you’d like to share, we welcome your comments. Otherwise, ‘try it’. See how you like it.

These are attractive and creative. They do keep your cosmetics in place. One thing I do not care for about these is that by sitting with the brushes up in the air they allow dirt and dust and other airborne matter to collect on them. Then, in turn, you put these into your eye shadows or blushes and then brush that into your skin. (Are we seeing the issue here?) 

Now I can hear some of you thinking “Well we can’t put
them in, bristles down, because that would just ruin the
brushes, so what are we supposed to do about that?”

I have an answer for you. My solution is to store cosmetic
brushes in covered containers, preferably not air tight ones
though. There’s a variety of options. Here are three
of my favorites.

 
 
I wish this photo were clearer. The side areas are great for storing smaller cosmetics 
which allows you to keep the bulk of your cosmetics together. 
The best feature is that the brushes are laid down and nestled into a groove 
to hold them suspended so they aren’t rubbing, which minimizes fraying as well. 
The second best feature is that this container can be closed, 
keeping out excess dust, dirt and other airborne particles. 
For this Fashion Eye,
this is the Mercedes of cosmetic storage. 
 My second runner up for storage is little gem here. It has drawers for your brushes and other cosmetic applicators. That is good since it also has what I refer to as “breather holes” in the front of each drawer. This allows a little bit of airflow while minimizing unwanted particles. However, the fact that it has drawers means you have to lay your brushes down. This allows mixing of colors and powders on your brushes which slightly alters the final look after application. Also, the bristles can rub together and this results in quicker fraying of the bristles.
Another item along the line of drawers is here. This provides maximum breathing room but again, it has the same downfalls as the above storage container. If this is your choice I recommend a light, attractive “draping” that goes over the top and comes down over the sides to eliminate the amount of airborne particles.
Here are some ideas for your “bath and beauty” supplies as well as your lip liners, 
eye liners, mascaras, eye pencils and other “stick” items.
                                                                                                                        

For those times you have to travel, here are some attractive choices that will
also keep your items clean and dry. 
                                                            
 We hope this helps you think or rethink your options and allows you some solutions.
