As strong confident women in today’s society we can do anything she can dream up. She can juggle everything that comes her way. We can change our hair color, trim off those extra pounds, but us short girls have a problem. What in the world can we do to make those little stumps of legs appear long and trim? The good news is that us short limbed gals can create the illusion of longer legs. It is all about the shoe and bottom choice we make as we select our wardrobe for the day.
Kitten heels, or if you are a brave one sky scraping stilettos, paired with a skirt with a shorter hemline can make a short gal’s legs look a mile high. Of course we want to keep it classy by allowing the hemline to be long enough to cover what shouldn’t be seen and pairing it with a heel that works with the dress or skirt style. Kitten heels with that little summer dress, while pairing a pair of power heels with a A line skirt and loose blouse. It is all about how we accessorize and pull together the outfit. Large ungainly flats or clumpy boots will actually shorten legs and make them appearing even shorter which completely defeats the purpose.
Every gal loves to wear a pair of great fitting jeans; we can dress them up and dress them down, depending on the demands of the day. Pairing a great pair of heels with those favorite fitted jeans can trim up those legs and make them drool worthy. Try a pair of high boots the go up above the calves, with a pair of skinny jeans and watch it do miracles. Avoid those ankle boots, while they are super cute they can actually shorten those legs, and work far better on the gals who are a little lengthier on the bottom half.
Another great way to lengthen those limbs is to strut your stuff in nude heels. When the tone of the heels is similar to that of the legs it creates the illusion of length. Not only will the heels create a longer leg, they also work those calf muscles and make a them look muscular and toned. Always remember to mix it up, a change of heels and accessories can change the entire mood of the outfit.
Whether a gal is short or tall, it is all about the confidence which they present themselves. How they hold their shoulders and the set of their chin can change a woman’s entire expression and the way that others view them. It is the strength inside that radiates outward that makes a gal shine. Slip into those favorite jeans, and find the top that makes you feel like a rockstar, then slide on those boots or strappy heels that make those legs look like they are a mile high. A little extra height never hurt, and can help us short ladies ‘reach for the stars’ while strutting our stuff.
The average bride spends three months shopping for the perfect wedding dress yet, the wedding jewelry is often overlooked, causing jewelry to be purchased hastily without much consideration.

Don’t wear a pearl bracelet with a rhinestone necklace stick to one metal family.
The neckline of the dress determines the type of necklace, and length of jewelry needed to achieve a certain overall look. Skip the necklace for sweetheart and strapless gowns instead sparkly or vintage chandelier earrings are the way to go with a matching bracelet. A V-neck requires a long, thin chain with a simple pendant or pearl. A crystal chocker with matching earrings can also be worn with a V-neck. This subtle jewelry is great when the dress itself has a lot of lace or sparkle, toning down the jewelry allows the dress to shine. For a halter gown, let crystal hair pins or a headband be the jewelry. In order to achieve a 1920’s theme a large, statement necklace with detailing on the side is necessary to achieve this look. Short sleeved gowns must have a bracelet.
There are many budget options when choosing wedding jewelry. The only main tip is to make sure it’s good quality. Unlike the dress, bridal jewelry can be worn again in the future. Jewelry is one of the things you can go cheap on. It makes no difference if the jewelry is real or fake. Consider renting jewelry if you are looking for real jewelry. Shop at independent jewelry companies. They can personalize your attachments or add to family heirlooms.

Keep in mind to choose something you personally like for the day and for the future.
