BUYERS BEWARE! CHECK SCAM PROM/FORMAL WEBSITES

Formal dresses for school balls and proms can be expensive which is why shopping online for discounted and “cheap” formal dresses is usually a good idea but unfortunately there are also fake and counterfeit formal dresses websites that spoil the online shopping experience for shoppers. There are plenty of horror stories of girls finding their dream prom dress online, order it and when their dress arrives (in some cases, it doesn’t arrive at all!) it is a complete mess. The dress received is nothing like what the actual dress that was shown on the website. Furthermore, there is no way to return the dress or get a refund!

These fake websites often claim they sell DESIGNER formal dresses, prom gowns, bridesmaid dresses and wedding gowns at 80% off retail price. They display stunning and beautiful shots of the dresses on their websites and the prices are only a fraction of what the RRP is. How good is that! It just sounds too good to be true, and in actuality, it is. These websites do a fantastic job at luring customers in to buy with the attractive design and layout of their websites, stolen dress shots from the actual brand/designer and too good to be true prices. These fake formal dresses usually are made in China with exceptionally bad craftsmanship.

The deep discounts are a huge bait to get people to make a purchase but don’t be fooled. The people behind these websites know the prices are almost irresistible and take full advantage by advertising site-wide of all the special prices, discounts and savings you get by purchasing a dress from their company. Trying to save some money isn’t worth getting scammed by these counterfeit websites!

In short, our best piece of advice for buyers looking to buy online is enter the URL of the website you are intending to purchase off at http://www.scamadviser.com

This is a very helpful website that provides information on the website and also provides an analysis of whether the website is deemed a risk website that has either been reported as a scam website.

Here we run an example of our website www.enviousfashions.com.au

Cheryl Cole Get Her Look…For Less

This backless bodycon black dress is perfect for a cocktail occasion, a night out on the town or even a hot date with your man.

To ensure your knock this look out of the park, ensure to invest in a bit of prep time. Follow these tips below on how to wear a backless black dress and look amazing.

  1. Slough away the dead skin with a gentle loofah and bodywash or scrub. Be aware to not be too vigorous or do this too often if you have sensitive skin as too much or harsh scrubbing may irritate those with sensitive. Apply a light moisturizer or lotion to your back to keep your skin in tip top condition. If desired, apply a self tanner to your body and back. Tanned skin accentuates the muscles in your back, so bring on sexy back!
  2. Avoid any unsightly bra straps. If you have a small bust you can probably get away with not wearing a bra. However, you should still aim to smooth out the look to prevent any visibility through the dress with nude colored nipple covers.
  3. Keep accessories to a minimal with a backless dress as the dress in itself makes a very bold statement. Too many accessories with this backless black bodycon dress makes the look a bit over the top and draws the attention away of the dress. A simple pair of earrings or delicate bracelet or a cocktail ring will add just the perfect touch to complete your look.
  4. Try to avoid any accessories that will cover your back such as necklaces with long or bulky clasps that can take the attention away from your sexy back and dress!
  5. Wear your hair up to full show your accentuated feature, your back. The best hairstyle when wearing a backless dress is some updo that is styled up and away from your neck and back. Yes, sure you have luxurious tresses but there’s no point in wearing a stunning sexy backless dress and it covers your back.
  6. Lastly, proper posture will make or break a backless dress. Ensure you wear your sexy backless black bodycon dress with confidence! Hold your head high, shoulders back and chest out. Good posture as opposed to hunched over will make your back look better and translate over to making your overall look sexier. Confidence is sexy so wear your dress to match your attitude!

How To Dress On A Budget And Still Look Amazing!

We have always been a firm believer that you do not need to spend an entire month’s pay check to look your best. What’s more, you can look just as dazzling, sophisticated and chic with an item that you bought for $10.00. We all know of women who are all about dressing all things designer from head to toe. While this is no crime it is our opinion that it is a bit of overkill and unnecessary. Of course we don’t rule out completely the opportunity to spoil yourself with a designer piece on those desired occasions but budget fashion can exude just as much glam magnetism.

Here are a few easy tips to keep in mind to turning your budget purchases to designer looking territory.

1. Stock up on the basic, staple pieces

Don’t overlook the staple pieces that work wonders to your look. These staple items include basic tees, singlets, good quality denim jeans, a fitted and tailored skirt and/or dress to name a few. They are the building blocks to your look. You can mix these basic pieces with well invested blazers or pants and look ultra chic. Sometimes it is the simplistic looks such as a basic white tee teamed with a pair of skinny jeans and a designer handbag to make you look all designer-y. Check out our lookbook below.

Mixing Basic With Designer

2. Choose neutral & earth tones over brights and neons

These colors include;

  • black
  • white
  • gray
  • cream
  • tan
  • olive

The reason why these colors are timeless and fail proof is because of their sleekness factor. They are easily coordinated with one another, pastels, brights, prints and patterns making them ultra versatile and chic. These colors are the building basis and indispensable for any woman’s wardrobe, whether you are casual and laid back or trendy and adventurous with the fashion styles. The power of these colors are in it’s versatility and will ensure you will look elegant effortlessly.

“Mirander” Peep toe Patent Nude Pumps $79.95

3. Simplicity in handbags/clutches

A simple, no fuss handbag or clutch can go a long way in creating an overall image to make you look sophisticated and chic. It’s a simple piece of accessory that really contributes to your look. Clutches are a great accessory to pair with a day or evening outfit and really compliment your outfit.

4. Catch the sales

Who doesn’t love a good sale? You can be shopping for sales and get clothing at discounted prices all year round by a couple of savvy shopping tactics such as shopping at the end of season rather than the start of season, sample sales and sign up to online newsletters to be alerted of when a sale will be on or specials or discounts offered to members. Most retailers send regular email newsletters to their subscribers offering discounts on a weekly or monthly basis so it’s a great way for you to be alerted of the specials without having to go look for it. Brilliant.

5. Find a good tailor

Most people wouldn’t think it but having a good tailor can work miracles to your outfits to make you look so much more sophisticated and emulating designer styles. Have you noticed how the designer pieces looks immaculately form fitting and if you have ever tried it on, fits like a dream? Of course, it comes with the designer price tag. Just having your tailor taking in specific areas such as the shoulders, armpits and at the waist can really make a difference in the price value of your outfit.

Trending: Point Toe White Pumps – Try the Trend!

If you’re in the summer hemisphere then summer is just around the corner. We’re spotting the point toe white pumps as the season’s hottest new trend. Although white is fabulous for summer, for those fashionistas in the Northern hemisphere of the world, the point toe white pumps also looks great incorporated into a monochrome outfit.

The white heel footwear has been traditionally dabbled in on only very lightly and it was once considered only the brave fashion trendsetters would venture. Why? Because it was often perceived to be “tacky” and reserved for the women who resembled the Stepford wives to wear them. Yes, the point toe white pumps can be a difficult trend to pull off and for the most part, most people aren’t sure how to style the white shoe look without creating a massive fashion faux paux. So, they would rather skip the risk of looking such part.

That being said, this shoe trend is coming back in a big way and when styled correctly with color-blocking, geometric pieces, monochrome and basic pieces, the point toe white pumps can smash the look out of the park.
