FASHION Flair: Professional Statement with a Chic Credit Card Holder

My sales and marketing job involves a lot of image building. Something within my control is how I look, and that includes the accessories I use when working. This credit card holder looks classy and elegant with its soft sheeny metal material. It is functional by opening through a push-button to 6 individual slots to carry credit and business cards in a fan-like manner for easy pull-out. It’s best to insert 1 card per slot because the last slots at both ends are glued to the inside panels of the case and may give in if you put more. It is 1 cm thick and carries the standard credit card size. It is quite heavy, but it adds to the professional elegance.

It comes with a fancy black box that come useful for gift-giving.

FASHION Flair: Adding a Feminine Touch to my Rugged Boots for a Total Fashionista OOTD (Outfit-of-the-Day)

My fashion style had reflected eccentricities as I incorporate ironies into my clothing, functionality and comfort with a touch of both feminine and masculine accents. I like wearing boots because it keeps my feet, ankles and calves protected, provides stable foothold, and adds a ruggedly masculine touch despite the variety of designs. I wear it over slacks in the office and over jeans for non-work events.

This pair of ladies’ boot socks are so cute and feminine. It tones down the masculine ruggedness of my boots with its textured top (portion that shows off the boots), lace trimmings and button accessories. I have mine in tan, but it also comes in black, brown and ivory.

The sock material is made with comfy 95% acrylic fiber and 5% spandex that is sweat-absorbent, odor-free and lint-free. The elastic qualities have maintained the fit after having washed it in the machine five times in the last 2 weeks, and so with the color. There was no textile dye bleeding. The buttons had likewise been sewn carefully, none had come off so far. As a general laundry rule, my special stuff are laundered in a mesh bag, you may take this advice, too.

I love how it flatters my outfit-of-the-day (OOTD) that I’ve worn it almost everyday with my mid-calf high and calf high boot pairs in a mix-match of black, brown and maroon, in suede and leather. As mentioned, my boot socks are in tan and it complemented all very well.

By the way, here’s a fashion tip, in my opinion: to make legs look longer (I’m 5’2”), skinnies with sleek boots and heels do the job of drawing the eyes higher and longer giving an illusion of height, and the tan color will additionally increase this illusion by cheating the eyes to mimic exposed skin with the skin-tone hue. Alternatively, matching your socks and boots color lengthens the sight, with the trimmings acting as accents.

FASHION Flair & TRAVEL Bug: Water-Resistant Fanny Pack for Smartphone & Valuables

During wet outdoor activities or while traveling, I use this fanny pack whenever I need extra pockets to keep my hands free from my smartphone & other valuables. It is boxy yet streamlined to my body with its polyester-neoprene material combination that prevents noisy juggling of coins and keys, as well as holds my smartphone gently with the cushiony material, yet firmly to avoid shock and drops. It is worn simply by buckling at the back, and easily adjusts from 30” to 44”, which for me is on my first hip over clothing.

When I’m assigned to countries that are seasonally rainy, the water-resistant feature is all-important (that’s for the material and zippers), specially that it holds my iPhone 6+ on the front pocket. I like it that the zipper handles are loops of cords with flat plastic holds, no clunking through airport security and more tactile to use. When worn at night, the reflective bands in front makes it easier to be seen for identity and safety.

On cutouts and loops, it has a hole where you can pass through your earbuds (not through the zippered opening), while the loops keep the earbud cords manageable and secured when in use or secured for easy accessibility when not in use. No more embarrassing entanglement, or constant unzipping and zipping to enjoy your music or audiobook.

Despite being made of thick material, it does not restrict airflow much as I can roll it over my waistline when I need some air. I’ve tried laundering it before use, and the shape of the material had not changed, neither has it bled.

FASHION Flair & TRAVEL Bug: Wrap Pockets for Valuables

MKP-44.

Running Belt for Men & Women by Urban Athletic

I use this product whenever I need extra pockets and/or keep my hands-free without obstructing fanny packs and belt bags, including when traveling. It is streamlined to my body with its lycra-spandex material combination that also prevents noisy juggling of coins and keys, as well as holds my smartphone firmly to avoid drops.

It is worn simply either through the top or from the floor up. It is so discreet that I can wear a tight shirt over it without bulging. This is important when I’m assigned in countries where hold-ups or pick-pocketing is rampant and I plan to bring it along on my next travel.

Despite being made of stretch materials, it does not restrict airflow much as I can roll it over the band of my shorts or pants if need be. I’ve tried laundering it once before use, and the elasticity of the material had not changed, neither has it bled.

Wearever provides an assortment of foot apparel— socks and shoes, as well as incontinence underwear. Something is common for all— they are comfortable to wear, dainty to use and stretchy long enough for multiple use.

The incontinence underwear has just the right padding for those uncontrollable urges that give one enough time to run to the loo.

There are several casual styles to choose from, and they can be as rugged for use in the active outdoors, or as elegant as use with office clothing.

The socks, on the other hand, are super-comfy with enough cotton material to maintain absorbency and control foot odor, while still elastic enough to withstand all the stretching when putting it on and off and still maintain the same quality and performance even with several laundering. It also does not give out lint which can be the cause of allergies or asthma.

They come in an assortment of color that do not bleed. These would be good for use in athletic activities by older children and adult alike.

FASHION Flair & TECH Tips: Ooohlala… Hot Macho Race Car Designs for my Man’s Security Protection against Electromagnetic Card Theft

The photographic designs of these RFID sleeves just ooze with masculine testosterone. Ooohlala… My significant other just had to grab it from me upon seeing me open it from the mail. RFID sleeves had been permanent security protocol for me since this type of product came out, but no supplier seem to have ventured into making it an aesthetically fashionable item, moreso in macho designs, until now. This is how I started protecting my credit cards and other identification cards with magnetic strips, how I review the product in terms of functionality, and how my normally unruffled man started using it for his own card protection…

I felt secure and less worrisome since I started using radio frequency identification (RFID) blocking sleeves for my credit, bank and identification cards. After hearing stories of rampant unnoticeable identity theft while withdrawing from automated machines, standing in line by the grocery counter or paying to a gasoline station cashier, it’s worth the extra effort & investment to protect oneself from probable mishap. These sleeves are made to fit the standard cards just right by not allowing the card to slip or slide when turned sideways, yet easy to pull out with the cutout when needed. The assorted designs make it easy to identify which card you need, and the hot car designs are just stunningly macho, my man started using it without further prodding. Since I started using sleeves, electromagnetic security had been pretty standard for me as I keep each of my cards in its own sleeve while stashed in my purse. I find this especially important when traveling internationally where I don’t mind going through the extra precaution to be safe than sorry. I’m glad the sexy red Ferrari convinced him to use one, and it now carries my man’s card in his wallet. This ends one of my worries that extends to account cards we share, among many others.

FASHION Flair & TECH Tips: Funky Pink Smartphone Armband for Easy Visibility in Airports During Travels while keeping Smartphone Accessible

I like keeping my hands-free while on the go (whether shopping, traveling, etc.)… so I love fanny packs and belts to keep my valuable stuff— trimmed down to the 3 Cs: cash, card and cellphone— handy. When traveling internationally though, my fanny pack is full with travel documents that I choose an armband to house my ever reliable communication device and mobile entertainment center, my smartphone. I like wearing this funky pink armband during those times because it shouts loud and makes me easily visible to my travel companions amidst crowds, whether during the day or at night in the dark because of its color and luminous outline. My 9-year old daughter says she won’t lose sight of me even amidst throngs of people. I let her wear one, too, on occasions like this.

The armband serves its purpose well. The neoprene material is stretchy enough to accommodate my iPhone 5 and my daughter’s iPhone 4S, even with thin cases on. The cutoff holes are just right for easy accessibility of ports. The plastic face allows normal touchscreen operability without difficulty. The Velcro straps adjust easily and comfortably around a 120-pounder’s (mine) and 100-pounder’s (my daughter’s) bare arms or over clothing. The inner texture does not rough up the sleeve part of our clothes. It also has a secret pocket for keys or emergency cash should we wish to stash some secretly for emergency purposes.

As for maintenance, it can be thrown in the washer with the rest of the laundry, and should I be dissatisfied with my washing, its price is affordable enough that replacing it will not break your budget.

FASHION Flair & TECH Tips: Classy Case for Cell, Cards, Check & Cash

This is such a classy case for my Samsung Galaxy S6, and doubly functional, too. It goes well with my other leather-bound business accessories so everything looks uniformly earthy chic and professional. The well-stitched leather-like texture is smooth & sheeny yet not too slippery to allow a good grip on it. The magnetic clasp lets you access the interior in one flick of a finger. On the inside, there are slots for your most important cards and a wider pocket for some cash and pieces of checks, so everything that you need to keep an eye is easily accessible in one place. Of course I chose this flip type case with cover with the intention of keeping the face of my smartphone protected while inside the purse. Since the phone is undoubtedly large to bring up to the ear for calls even by itself, I normally use a Bluetooth speaker or headset for conference calls, so the cover had never been bothersome for me.

FASHION Flair: Warmth when you Need It, Non-slip when you Ask for It

While outdoor in the cold, I often delay answering a call or texting a message back when my gloves are on for fear that my phone would slip right off my grip or become exasperated with an unresponsive screen to touch commands… until the advent of texting gloves. The textile technology behind the fabric combination of these gloves keeps your hands warm and comfy inside without sacrificing grip or tactile response. The elasticity of the fabric is maintained keeping it snug and fit even after washing, and is adequately thin/thick so that one still has a “feel” of what one is touching or holding. Your tactile sense is still in command! Since I got these gloves, I had no need to take it off and risk frozen numb appendages just to reply back.
