How to Clean Suede

Suede materials are not quite easy to come by. In fact it takes only those who know how to maintain the shoes to be able to wear it conveniently. It is a very great addition to fashion, in fact it is a special kind of fashion accessory that can add a lot of respectability to your attire. But the truth of the matter is that whosoever is ready to purchase this fashion accessory must also be ready to purchase what it take s to maintain it.

In the dusty kind of environment, a suede shoe is not the kind that can easily be enjoyed. So for you to be able to enjoy this fashion accessory in any kind of place whatsoever, you will need to be ready to carry out constant cleaning operation on it.

The surface of all the types of suede materials that we have are susceptible to easy scuffing and it can get so easily dirty. Those who use any suede material will be able to agree with me that suede materials are far from being easy to clean. Ordinary brushing of the materials will not be enough to return it to its natural appearance again. The fashion accessory requires more than that.

There are simple protective or maintenance actions you can carry out on your suede materials that can help you keep the material from getting spoilt too quickly. Do not allow even a drop of water to stay too long on the materials. Each time you notice that there is a drop of water, please wipe it off instantly. If not, the water will soak into the fabric and the damaging process will begin.

Some people do make the mistake of applying heat to dry these fashion accessories. This is a very bad practice. It is better to allow the suede material to dry out naturally on its own after it might have been wetted. Suede tends to collapse and loose their original shape after being wetted. To make sure that this is never the case, it is better to stuff the suede material with some dry paper so that it will be able to maintain its shape.

When you want to clean your suede material, you can use either clan towel or a napkin to clean the surface. If you notice any small wet stain, quickly blot it out using a paper towel. If the stain is dry anyway, a good pencil eraser will go a long way in helping you to do the cleaning.

If you notice any clump of dirt on the fashion accessory, it will be best to clean it up with a fingernail file, but if this is not available you can make use of a clean dry tooth brush.

Guide to Wearing Revealing Clothes

Most revealing dress, prom dress too revealing, most revealing lingerie

Revealing clothes can be a great idea on how to appear in a rather warm night. It allows the breeze to crease the upper part of your body and gives you a rather free feeling; since it isn’t the best idea to appear in turtleneck in such an environment.

The truth about this kind of dress is that, if care is not taken, wearing it may make certain individuals misunderstand your appearance and then conclude to take liberty with you. You shouldn’t forget the common saying that instructs that you should ‘dress as you will be addressed’.

You should never be deceived by the lifestyles of actresses and other celebrities who are in the custom of showing off too much than the public needs to see. You are not a celebrity, so there is no point in making your life unnecessarily complicate by trying to do what they do. Being like these celebrities will only label you wrongly in the eyes of the public.

But if you still find that clothe very irresistible and you will want to have that revealing clothe, you can actually do that and still appear modest. There are certain guidelines that you will need to apply to make this possible.

You will need to know that it will not be great for a woman who is rather voluminous on the bottom side to wear a dress with top having low cut. The two of them being emphasized is never the best of idea, since it does not portray any sign of modesty.

If the revealing clothe reveals some cleavage, it is great for you not to allow the cleavage to be excessively revealed. If you do, you will be causing heads to turn for the wrong reason. You will also be starting a conversation for the very wrong purpose. A slip dress that just grazes the bust or falls into a low “V” shape at the centre of the bust is a rather modest way to wear that revealing clothe.

You should also try to avoid a revealing clothe that is way above the knee. The best type of revealing clothe that will sufficiently look modest on you is one that is some considerable distance below the knee. The kind of design that these revealing clothe is given can also help to remove attention from your cleavage and set the gaze on your general appearance.

In case of a skirt, it is not so appropriate or modest to wear a skirt that is way too high. You will need to limit the wearing of such garment to very hot weather like the summer. In place of such skirt, you can also make use of a short with an appropriate top.
