A Cigar Box Purse or Handbag is a Unique Fashion Accessory With a Touch of Old World Charm
There's an unmistakable charm about a cigar box purse or handbag. Neat, petite and elegant, and decorated with romantic, quaint and quirky images from a bygone era, these design gems are becoming increasingly sought after fashion accessories. You can buy cigar box purses and handbags made from real cigar boxes, or they can be decorated with just about any image you can imagine, including classic movie stars, fashion photographs, dancers, animals, flowers or abstract designs. If you shop around online, you'll find a huge range of cigar box purses and handbags, many of them uniquely designed and sold by the artist who created them. You can even have a cigar box purse or handbag custom made using a favorite image of a pet, a special place, person or thing, or perhaps a cherished old photograph of a great aunt or grandmother taken in a bygone era. Any image is suitable, so long as it's your own, and there is no copyright existing in the photograph or artwork. Or if you're particularly creative, you could even make the purse or handbag yourself.
Making your own cigar box purse or handbag.
It's very simple to make a cigar box purse or handbag yourself, and you'll have the satisfaction of having something which is absolutely unique. A handbag or purse you've made yourself also makes a lovely gift for someone special. You can buy a simple wooden box, or a real cigar box if you can find one, some paint and lacquer, and the hinges, corners, handle and clasp from purse hardware suppliers which you'll find online. Of course, you'll also need a photograph or piece of artwork to use on the box. Choosing an image, a color scheme and purse hardware pieces which work together artistically is great fun, and very satisfying when it all comes together. It's a very simple job to paint the box, glue on the image, cover the whole thing with a few coats of lacquer, then attach all of the purse hardware components.

Clip Earrings: A Pierce-Less Sense of Style
Pierced jewelry is all the rage among both the young and old, celebrities and commoners alike. But for various reasons, a person may be against ear piercings. It could be because ear piercings are a bit of a hassle, and then again it could be because body piercings are prohibited to a person because of religion or other constraints. Clip earrings are therefore very convenient and suitable for some people. Not everybody wants to be pierced, but everybody wants to be fashionable and chic.

Bareback Teddies - Show Off Your Style!
By definition a teddy is a one piece undergarment combining a camisole and panty. In reality a teddy can be one of the most dramatic fashion statements you can to accentuate your most fashion forward clothing. Because of the nature of the teddy's design, it provided a great foundation for tight fitting pants since it flattens the stomach and provides virtually no visible lines. Two of the latest fashion trends in teddies are the bareback teddy and the fashion top teddy. The bareback teddy is designed to provide a camisole and panty combination that appears to have no back to it. This type of teddy is designed with multiple straps that provide support for your breasts, so no bra is needed, while giving you a bare back surface to show off your most revealing tops. You can imagine the looks and stares from everyone as they try to figure out how you look so dazzling with no visible means of support. The strap configurations on these teddies can accommodate the most revealing blouses and tops to give you the confidence and support you need. The fashion top teddy is really three items of clothing built into one. It serves as a thong panty, a bra and a fashion top. The styles and adornment of these teddies comes in a wide range for various taste levels and needs. You can find a simple halter style in a plain, stretch fabric, all the way up to a heavily beaded top that shines with crystals and sequins. You decide what is appropriate for the occasion. With so many choices it is easy to see why teddies have made a huge comeback in recent years. For fashion versatility it's hard to think of another garment that would add as much flexibility and style.

My Shopping List: Shoes, Dress, and a Hairdresser
Change is a funny thing. When seasons change, so do people and their way of thinking. For some of us it can be scary and for others a welcomed challenge. A few of us will throw out clothes we have not worn in years. Others will throw away old shoes, handbags, jewelry, hats and belts only to refill their closets with a shopping trip. Shopping is the ultimate change for a shopaholic. However, there are some of us who will shop for the ultimate change? a haircut. Whether it is a two-inch cut or a 10-inch cut, you better be sure to shop for a person who knows exactly what he/she is doing. I never thought that one must also shop for a hairstylist in the same way that we shop for the perfect dress or pair of shoes. After I saw my neighbor's hair, I have changed my thought process.
