Fashion Advice For People Who Work at Home

Proper clothing helps workers perform their tasks to the best of their abilities. This holds true even if you happen to carry out your work at home. What are the top work at home professionals wearing today? After intensive research, these are the styles that made the list of favorites for successful work-at-home fashionistas.

Novelty Tees A must for every telecommuter or home-based entrepreneur is an assortment of tee-shirts that either:

  1. boasts of where you’ve been, where you want other people to think you have been, or where one of your friends or relatives has been
  2. advertises your business, your favorite beer, charitable event, restaurant or tavern, merchandise or casino
  3. expounds your personal or political opinion in a particularly charming, witty or sarcastic manner

Tee-shirts allow for ease of movement, are durable and somewhat stain-resistant and are great for the budget conscious. These fashion staples are often given to you as gifts, either by people who know your quirks or businesses you patronize. Females may prefer tank tops with informative slogans like “hottie” or “princess” emblazoned across the chest.

Comfortable Pants Just because you are home bound does not mean you have to stay in your pajama bottoms all day, though that is one good alternative. You could also choose to don yoga pants or sweats or even a favorite, appropriately faded pair of jeans, though there are some advantages to pants with elastic waists. These trousers promote good circulation and flexibility and don’t bind while you are sitting hunched over the computer. Shorts can be substituted when temperatures allow.

Outerwear When a tee shirt or tank just doesn’t seem like enough, many at-home professionals choose to top off their look with the addition of a sweatshirt or flannel. An oversized bathrobe is another option that is favored by those in cooler climates.

Sensible Footwear Polished professionals make sure they look good from head to toe. When the weather is chilly, a good pair of soft, furry slippers is a great way to complete your fashionable work ensemble. Of course, a pair of socks will work in a pinch. Summer footwear is optional, though it is wise to have a pair of flip flops easily accessible in case you have to go out and get the mail or walk the dog.

Functional Accessories There are many items that can fall into this category. A favorite coffee mug is one of them. Kept hot and steaming, this useful piece helps improve efficiency and morale. A caffeinated beverage of soda or ice tea also coordinates nicely. Other preferred accessories include M3P players, ponytail holders and doodle pads. If you work at home, you may want to try some of these style tips to help you improve your performance and your confidence level. Remember, it’s okay to express some of your own, unique personality by adding individual touches such as strategically placed stains, intricate holes or relevant rips.

Jewelry Boxes in Endless Variety

Collecting jewelry boxes can be fun and interesting encompassing everything from famous people to different eras in our history. A collection can focus on ancient Egypt with beautiful wood boxes with mother of pearl inlaid in rectangular and octagon shapes or a hand painted cast metal box with scarabs and lotus.

Most are lined with velvet of a coordinating color. A fun collection would be one of Disney characters with the most popular ones being Tinker Bell and Cinderella. There are jewelry boxes shaped like the Cinderella castle that open with a drawbridge. Imagine a shelf of jewelry boxes with all the Disney princesses and a castle. That would be a beautiful and fun display in any room.

Like animals? A cute green turtle jewelry box or an elephant or a dolphin jewelry box all can begin a great collection of sea animals or African animals. Maybe you would like a collection with various animal patterns such as snakeskin and leopard spots? Do you have a friend that collects lighthouses? A jewelry box in the shape of a lighthouse or a fine wooden box with a beautiful painting of a lighthouse on the shore with waves lapping at the rocks can be a meaningful gift to a collector.

A collection of jewelry boxes does not have to be the large boxes we normally see on dressers that have hooks for necklaces and drawers for rings. There are trinket boxes that usually range in size from an egg to a coffee cup. These can be made of wood, metals, plastic and even box materials. The lids either left off or up or slide to one side and are often the most decorative part of the trinket box. These are a great collection starter for a child due to their size and cost.

Some people collect based on the material the jewelry box is made from or the decorations on the box whether it is carved wood or inlaid mother of pearl on the lid. Others collect based on the designer or manufacturer. A collection of any type can reflect your personality and provide you with pleasure and satisfaction.

Remember that little pink jewelry/music box with the ballerina that popped up and danced to a love song? I wonder how much mine would be worth in a collection or even more, what it would be worth to my granddaughter if she had it sitting on her dresser?

Organizing Jewelries in Classic Armoires and Boxes

Love collecting jewelries? Most women do, which is why jewelry armoire and jewelry boxes are essential furniture around the house.

For jewelries, know first the total number of jewelries. From it, one will know what to buy – a jewelry armoire or a jewelry box. Jewelry armoire can hold more jewelry on it. Check the number of stacks, pegs, hooks, and compartments too.

Know the features before deciding to buy one. Style and design will depend on the taste of the person and the style of the house. The quality is tested if products are recommended by other people, so take a survey too. It must be durable too. For jewelry boxes, choose one made of strong wood and good fabric lining.
