Rocking With Your Socks Out

I was just reading Hilary Alexander’s (Fashion Director, Telegraph UK) Piece about socks being the new thing for Spring 2010 alternative to hosiery? Guess Portia De Rossi was ahead of the game when she rocked with the socks out . On a recent Oprah appearance with wife Ellen DeGeneres earlier this year . The look did catch my eye . What if you don’t have long sleek legs? Choosing the right sock use your gut instinct and play around with this look. I know it doesn’t matter the length of the sock, You can use trouser socks , knee socks , ankle socks . Its not suggested for the over 30 set , without great legs. I think that everyone can do this look in there own variation. I suspect the men will get on board for this trend it is rather sexy. Here at PTB there are no do’s and don’ts when you’re doing a trend. I encourage you to make it your own . Most designers enjoy it when you do this .They especially don’t want you to copy an ad or magazine spread to exact specification. Marc Jacobs said he enjoys seeing women out on the street wearing his stuff, in there own way. Sometimes saying why didn’t think of that . He was on Oprah I believe. Wow and the Oprah references keep on coming (ha!) In a somber note we will be celebrating the life of Icon Macomb McLaren in our next post. Manager of the Sex Pistols , deemed the God Father of punk . So be on the look out for that . So rock with your socks out ladies.

PTB Spring Reboot : Skincare

Clensing ( washing your face )   Cleansers : Cethaphil , Phisoderm, 
Splash warm water on your faceDispense product on your palmWith your finger tips , use upward and outward motions to apply product Once you scrubed your face . rinse it away with warm waterTake a towel and pat face dry 

Toner : Is debated in the beauty industry, I personally think it does a great job getting rid of excess dirt and restoring PH balance in your skin. If you want to skip it , Ill leave it up to you . Burts Bee's Toner ,witch hazel are my favorites though what you have on hand is good.
Wet a cotton ball with warm waterapply toner to cotton ball Using upward and outward motions Avoid eye contact 
Exfoliate : This is extremly important , you only have to do it 2x's a week. Since you shave it is a form of exfoliation your doing it already . Exfoliation is extremly important.  St Ives Apricot Scrub is my favorite  wet your face with warm water Take a quarter size amout of product apply it too yout finger tip…
