Tina’s back with her Fashion 411
I have a close friend who is turning 40 and a group of us want to get her something nice and sentimental for her milestone birthday. But what do you give someone who already has everything?
Finding the perfect gift for a friend who has everything is quite a challenge!
A popular fashion trend among our NYC customer is creating personalized charm bracelets for their close girlfriends. Have fun with the idea and ask all the girls to add their personal touch to the gift by individually choosing one charm for the bracelet. Not only will the birthday girl appreciate the sentiment behind each charm piece but she will own an original piece of jewelry designed by her closest friends. We have a “build your own charm bracelet” section on our website, TinaTang.com. And, there are many other companies, such as Links of London, where one can build a bracelet.
I am in the midst of a career transition from the corporate world to the artsy fashion industry. I have a few interviews lined for next week but after looking through my closet, I felt my current business suits are too conservative and could send a stodgy message about my personality to the interviewer. What can I do to spruce up my exisiting suits?
You are absolutely right in assuming your first impression during your interview will be extremely important in showing you “get” what the company is about. First off, I would recommend researching the company’s culture and then try to tailor your look based on the findings. If it turns out you do need to update your look, you don’t need to ditch those corporate navy suits.
Just add some flare to them with fun flirty blouses and accessories. Wear color blouses to contrast the conservative suits and add on layers of jewelry. From my experience, accessories are so key to showing your sense of style. Your interesting accessories serve as great conversation starters!
