Opelika woman looks to donate wedding dresses

For brides, their ideal wedding dress has been in their minds since they were young. They want the dress that gives them the fairy tale wedding of their dreams.

For Amber White, her dress was all that she wanted. It gave her the fairy tale wedding that she dreamed of. However, that dress has been sitting in her closet for the past seven years. Last week, before Hurricane Irma hit, she saw woke up and saw the dress in her closet and told her husband that she wanted to donate it to victims of Hurricane Harvey.

After Irma hit, she posted to Facebook about donating her wedding dress to the victims of Hurricane Harvey and Irma. Since then, blog sites have shared her post and hundreds of women have come forward wanting to help.

“It was one of the most important days of my life,” White said. “It’s the day where you commit to your significant other. As a little girl, it’s the day you look forward to your entire life. You picture that fairy tale wedding, and that’s what it was for me. When I laid eyes on this dress, I knew it was the dress. I wanted to feel like a princess. I could not imagine having the perfect dress, just to come back and see it ruined. Some women plan for years and years about the perfect day. They have their dress picked out months and years ahead just for one day and to have it completely stripped from them, I couldn’t even imagine.”

Alisia Adams saw White’s post Tuesday night, and wanted to help right away. She donated a bridesmaids dress to the cause.

“A lot of people have lost everything,” Adams said. “They literally have nothing to their name anymore. I guess the least I could do is give them a dress that they spent so much money on, and now it’s gone in a second.”

Jessica Branan donated a bridesmaids dress and two flower girl dresses and couldn’t help but think of the roles being reversed.

“It would mean everything for someone to do that,” Branan said. “You lose so much, and you spend so much on something and for it to be gone, that’s pretty hard.”

White said she has been amazed by all of the traction her post has gotten, but says it is nothing compared to what others have sacrificed after the hurricanes.

“I can’t physically go to Texas or Florida and help with the relief, but if me giving this up means a lot to people, then absolutely,” White said.

White said there is one catch to receiving one of the donated dresses. She asks that recipients pass their dress onto another bride who is in need.Read more at:SheinDressAU | bridesmaid dresses

Is High Quality Hair Really That Important For Clip-In Extensions

It’s quite the conundrum when it comes to choosing the right hair for your clip-in hair extensions. Temporary hair pieces are fantastic solutions for added length or volume. They are a popular choice for use on special occasions, weddings and the like. But if you only use them occasionally, as is normally the case for clip-in hair extensions, is it worth buying high quality hair if you won’t be wearing them every day?

It depends on who you ask of course. There are many hair extension pieces to choose from that are low in cost and quality. They are usually made from synthetic fibres or a low grade human hair that is designed for only a few uses. The trouble is, no matter how infrequent the use; those low-quality hair extensions may never give a realistic appearance.

If Only For A Day

Imagine if we applied that same thinking to a bride’s dress on her wedding day. She’s only going to wear it once. It may only be a few hours. Why should she spend so much money on something that typically spends the rest of its life at the back of a wardrobe? The wedding dress is important because she wants it to look special. An ill-fitted pattern and low-cost materials just aren’t going to cut it. Hair is your crown and glory. One you can never take off. It only makes sense to apply the same logic when thinking about your clip-in hair extensions.

Most mass-produced hair extensions use hair from multiple sources. This makes the hair very dense, meaning the hair doesn’t flow as naturally as your own hair would. Hair produced from a singular source or donor is much lighter and a truer representation of hair movement. We’ve all been to a wedding recently and spotted an obvious hair piece. It never quite looks right to the eye.

A Better Way

The best thing you can do to ensure your clip-in extensions look the part is a little due diligence. If you are going to invest into some real hair extensions, you don’t want to buy unsuitable hair. First you need to understand what structure of hair you need. If you own hair is naturally wavy or curly, straight extensions won’t match your texture; even if you curl them. Then you need to find the correct colour. Not always easy if buying online. Always read the terms and conditions about returns if the colour isn’t suitable. Where possible, always have a consultation first.

You also need to ensure you have the right amount of volume. Most hair bundles come in multiples of 100g. If you have very thick hair you will need to consider 150g or more. Another good tip is to check if the attachments or amount of them are suitable for your hair. Not all clip-in attachments are the same and you need to make sure they’re not visible or are liable to slide out.

Ultimately, if you are in unfamiliar territory with clip-in hair extensions then you should consult a well-informed hair extension stylist who would be able to explain the nuances of the extension industry. It is the difference between a box dye job and a qualified stylist. One gives you an amazing result; the other is questionable.Read more at:bridesmaid dresses sydney | bridesmaid dresses brisbane

How these £6,855 boots could be yours for £34.99

Once upon a time (well, in February), a pair of knee-high boots, salted with 3,000 tiny individual rhinestones, walked down the Saint Laurent catwalk in Paris. The industry instantly swooned, as if under the spell of head designer Anthony Vaccarello. But a month later they were spotted on the feet of pop’s most fearless and fashion-savvy princess, Rihanna. Then came a shoot of Cara Delevingne in this September’s Elle, the feet of 2017’s beacon of fashion-forward hope Celine Dion, and, just like that, their status as the boot of the moment was cemented.

And, because we can’t all wear the Saint Laurent boots “phresh out” the catwalk like Riri, the high street has produced an array of homages. From black sequinned mid-calf boots at Next, to knee-high, non-slouchy, very shiny versions at Topshop and a relatively understated offering from Russell and Bromley, they have virtually become a meme. The most wearable pair is the Topshop chunky-heeled version.

It’s a tale as old as time – every season has its cult item(s). Last autumn it was the Balenciaga padded jacket, worn shrobed, as was the season’s way, on the catwalk in Paris. Variations on the theme soon found their way from the catwalk and on to high streets up and down the country, with Urban Outfitters’ green iteration proving so popular and ubiquitous that it got its own Instagram: “thatpuffa”, papped the jacket in chicken shops, on dates and at the library.

But the boots have an edge over the padded jacket – shiny, bright as diamonds, they are solid Insta-bait, no filter necessary. At one with the season’s broader trend for all that glitters – chainmail and sequins have been widely deployed at Gucci, Emilia Wickstead and Versace – they look like something Liberace might have worn. Or disco balls hammered out and moulded into boot form. It’s no wonder they have – despite their £6,855 ($10,000) price tag – sold out on Net-a-Porter and reportedly racked up gargantuan wait-lists at Saks Fifth Avenue and Bergdorf Goodman. Or that they are on the pages of many of the September issues.

If you are feeling brave, style them like Rihanna, who owned the inevitable wrinkle of jeans stuffed into boots by making that an intentional styling device and teamed them with an oversized T-shirt, leather biker jacket and discus-sized gold hoop earrings. If you are feeling less brave, go the Celine way with an otherwise all-black outfit. Either way, be ready for plenty of attention.
