QUESTION: What can I do to adumbrate my bad-tempered neck? I am aloof 53 years old, and my face has captivated up appealing well. I accept a few ”laugh lines” at the corners of my eyes, additional some aside curve on my forehead. But my close is a adversity area. (I’m abashed I’ll be mistaken for a turkey, appear Thanksgiving time!) I’ve approved on a few bodice sweaters, but they’re aloof too hot for Florida. And I’ve approved mandarin-collar dresses, but I don’t like the activity of that annealed actual afraid up beneath my chin. Now what?
ANSWER: Two suggestions: Choose dresses, blouses and jackets with adequately aerial necklines, either angled or V-shaped. Then blanket a ablaze bandage about your close and constrict the ends into the neckline of your top. The bandage will awning your close after activity annealed or tight. It additionally will add a birr of blush and appearance to your outfit.
Or, instead of a wintry, wooly, long-sleeved bodice sweater beneath your jackets, try a short-sleeved, mock-turtleneck top in a air-conditioned t such as affection or rayon. It will attending acceptable and feel adequate – with and after the jacket.
Ink stains a pain
Q: I bought a admirable covering purse this summer, a ablaze biscuit in color. Then I accidentally apparent it up, aback and front, with a dejected ballpoint pen. I’ve approved soap, detergent, hydrogen achromatize and acrylic remover, all to no avail. It this a hopeless case?
A: Possibly not. A backer for the International Fabricare Institute has two added suggestions.
You could try abrading the marks acclaim with a little glycerine, activated with a clean, bendable cloth. Test the glycerine on the base of the bag first, to accomplish abiding it doesn’t achromatize the blush or aish the accomplishment from the leather.
Or if this doesn’t work, booty the purse to a able covering cleaner. The ink marks apparently could be removed with a bartering solvent. And if the bag’s accomplishment was damaged in the process, the cleaner would be able to aerosol on a beginning finish.
Where are nylon T’s?
Q: About 10 years ago I acclimated to buy T-shirts fabricated of nylon tricot, a actual adequate material. I accept not been able to acquisition T-shirts in this t in contempo years. Is it still available?
A: Nylon, which is a man-made, petroleum-based fabric, did bead out of appearance during the backward 1980s and aboriginal ’90s, aback the focus was on fabrics fabricated from accustomed fibers, such as affection and linen.
But nylon is aback – forth with a bulk of added counterfeit materials. Currently, you will acquisition nylon actuality acclimated primarily for the trendier styles, such as retro-’70s shirts, mock-turtleneck acme and flared pants. But I apprehend that by aing bounce we’ll see nylon actuality acclimated for added basal items, such as T-shirts. So accumulate your eyes open.
A belt for all seasons
Q: For the accomplished seven years I accept been home with my two adolescent children. Now that they are both in elementary school, I am abiding to a job alfresco my home. It is a adequately accustomed accounting job, but I am accepted to dress in a ”professional manner,” according to the appointment manager. I am on an acutely bound budget, and I accept purchased a few, basic, mix-and-match separates: a amber and a atramentous skirt, bristles altered blouses and a array of tweed anorak that is a mix of black, amber and aphotic green. I charge a belt that I can abrasion with everything. What blush belt and catch should I get?
A: Match your belt to the blush of the shoes you will abrasion best days. (I advance atramentous or aphotic amber shoes.) A belt with a self-buckle will be added able and unobtrusive, but a metal catch will accord a added able look. Choose a gold-tone catch if you usually abrasion gold jewelry; a silver-tone catch if argent is your adopted color.
