Are you tired of spending Labor Day weekend at the pool, your neighbor’s backyard barbeque, or your local mall trying to finish your back-to-school shopping?  Do you want to experience something new, perhaps act a bit crazy, just once in early September?  How about jetting to Paris this weekend for the annual Interfilière and Mode City trade fairs?  They’re premiere international intimates trade shows, held jointly, that bring together the world’s leading lingerie makers and their fabric suppliers.  This will be your last chance.  Next year, this event is being moved to mid-July.  And while Paris is always a great place to visit, it’s best to see it outside the height and heat of the tourist season.

Leaves will soon begin to change their colors, so it’s time to start considering your fall wardrobe.  This year’s autumn inspirations range from the 1950s and early 1960s, to lower hemlines, splashes of gold, and leather.  Next season’s fashion trends are sure to make your curves look fantastic.  And the right shapewear will take those trends to the next level.

The focus on the hourglass silhouette remains, as the popularity of Mad Men continues.  This curve-friendly trend can be used in many flattering ways.  For example, consider wearing a funnel neck to bring eyes up to your pretty face, and wearing your hair up for a polished effect. In addition, try donning a smoothing camisole or torsette under your sweater for a more sophisticated look. […]
