Trending – Little or Long Black Dresses

Trending Black Dresses - Thurley Fables Mini Dress
Fables Mini Dress by Thurley.

Unless you have been living under a rock, you will probaly know about the Time’s Up movement that was the big talking point of the 2018 Golden Globes red carpet. The Time’s Up campaign saw the majority of the women attending, walked the red capet wearing black, in solidarity with those that have suffered sexual harrassment or abuse, in the entertainment industry.

Some of the women helping to raise awareness were Oprah Winfrey (who wowed at the ceremony with an inspirational and powerful speech), Viola Davis, Angelina Jolie, Jessica Chastain, Meryl Streep, Natalie Portman, and Kerry Washington, amongst many others. Brave whistle blowers who have finally found the strength to come forward were homoured for their bravery, which was rather moving, and porbably meant a lot to women all over the world.

If you want to show some solidarity with the Time’s Up movement, you could wear a black dress, or tailoring for your next beg event or social occasion.

Christmas Countdown – Best Bargains Under $100

Christmas Bargains - Charming Charlie Dress
Charming Charlie Plaid Dress – $35

I am obsessed with a bargain. The vast majority of purchases I make, have some sort of discount – whether it be a sale product, or a special promotion. I’m not a shopping addict, I just love the little buzz you get, when you get a really good deal on something.

It used to be that you had to wait until January for the best deals of the holiday season. Then came the Boxing Day sales, and now the sales often start, even before Christmas comes. If you are brave enough to be a super last minute shopper for Christmas gifts, then you can get yourself some real bargains for your friends and family.

It is always worth spending a little bit of extra time looking for a good deal, especially if you are on a tighter budget. You may just be able to make your money go a little bit further

Over the past few weeks, I have had a chance to have a really thorough look through Xwalker and I have found some real bargains.

Panel Frill Hem Jeans by Trendyol – $42

Speaking as a denim addict, I believe that a woman can never have enough pairs of jeans. They are versatile, come in so many different styles, and in so many different washes. What womn can be without a pair (or 12) of jeans? No woman can! That is why I have focused today’s Christmas Coutdown on women’s jeans under $100.

There is a lot of talk that a good quality jeans have to be expensive, but that isn’t the real truth. Of course, expensive jeans are probably good quality, but that doesn’t mean that cheaper jeans are of a poor quality. You can get great pairs of jeans for a really modest budget of $100.

I have been having a good look through the Xwalker catalogue, and found loads of wonderful pairs.

No matter your preferred cut, straight or flared, skinny or loose, there is a pair of jeans for every woman for a reasonable price. Just take a look.
