Mini Dress Fashion Statement Takes Front and Centre

If it’s spring then it must be mini dress season, and 2009 is no exception to this rule. Regardless of how warm, cold, rainy, or sunny the weather might be, celebrities and stars are embracing the newest mini dress looks both on the red carpet and in everyday life.

The recent Costume Institute Gala held at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art was a dress lover’s paradise, with tons of the world’s best known stars showing up in a huge array of mini dress fashions. From the simple classics to the ultra modern, there was no shortage (no pun intended) of “above the knee” dresses populating the red carpet arrivals.

Actress Anne Hathaway harkened back to the 1960?s with her combination of retro hair and a mini dress of lush purple taffeta. The skirt was balloon-like rather than straight, a fashion statement that few people could have pulled off so successfully. Although the dress was certainly not the kind to suit everyone’s taste, Hathaway looked lovely anyway.

On the other end of the spectrum was Madonna. The so-called “material girl” wore a dress that quite frankly looked like a shrunken pair of pantaloons left over from the Elizabethan age. The colour was not quite turquoise but not quite green, instead falling somewhere in between in a shade best described by the word “blah”. All in all the outfit just didn’t work on any level, but there is a bright side: Madonna’s fashion disaster offers a great lesson to others who want to participate in the mini dress trend without making major fashion mistakes.

If you want to wear a mini dress then you absolutely should “go for it”, as long as you have a good sense of what works and what doesn’t work on your own body. Unless you have a huge amount of confidence and a picture-perfect figure it’s best to stay away from the modern/strange looks and instead opt for the modern/classic looks. Choose a mini dress that’s about mid-thigh in length or slightly shorter, but never so short that your bum hangs out the back or you can’t sit comfortably and modestly. If you?re looking for a splash of colour consider a mini dress with a fun and trendy print to it, like polka dots (big or small), distinctive floral, or an all over bold colour like red, royal blue, emerald green, or the like.

Of course, most of us simply want a mini dress that’s comfortable, stylish, and practical for everyday living, so don’t be afraid to shop around for more casual mini dress styles. Jersey knits, cottons, linens, and rayon are all great fabric choices when you’re looking for a mini dress to wear at work, while shopping, or just for casual comfort and style.

Where to Buy Cheap Sneakers Online

SHOW ME THE FAKES!

Replica sneaker buyers want to know which sellers and websites are honest. Well let me tell you how to pick a good site. BEWARE of China scam sites that only except BankWire transactions! You will never get your money back, and certainly won’t get any shoes to your door. YOU NEED A USA BASED SITE AND A SAFE, TRACEABLE CHECK OUT PROCESS!

Example of a good USA based customer service page:

Experience.

The site you choose should have purchased PLENTY of replicas from a large pool of suppliers in order to find the highest quality replicas.

Assurance.

If you do not receive your shoes, you should be sure you can receive a FULL REFUND and a PERSONAL APOLOGY.

Selection.

The sites inventory may NOT SEEM EXPANSIVE, however if they PRIDE THEMSELVES on NOT HAVING RIDICULOUS UNRELEASED COLORWAYS THAT THEIR CUSTOMERS WOULD BE CLOWNED FOR, that’s a good thing.

Passion.

The site owners should be fans of these replicas, and fans of people getting the ‘look’ and saving big.

Example of a good USA based policy page:

· They DO NOT sell authentic shoes. They sell replica factory variants of high quality.

· All sizes are in US men size and they recommend you order 1 size up for a comfortable fit.

· You should be sure you will receive an order confirmation from PayPal via email after payment once you have completed a successful checkout.

· They are concerned about customer privacy concerns. All transactions on their web site are secure for your protection. None of their customers information will ever be sold or given out for solicitation or used for any reason whatsoever to second or third parties.

· All prices listed on the site are in US currency.

· They never share your personal information with anyone nor will they sell your information to a third party.

THE VERDICT!

To each his own. If you don’t wanna spend $150-$300, find a good replica site with options that cost $59.99.

Goodluck!
