DON'T BE SHY WHEN ACCESSORISING. PHOTO OF DREW BARRYMORE FROM GOTHAM MAGAZINE (?) CAN'T SEE THE OTHER LETTERS. HEHEHEHE

There have been several occasions when I had to pass up buying a particular dress or top because it had no sleeves. I passed it up because of my number one problem area, My Arms. I am guilty of not working out, I mean the most work out that I get these days is walking and cleaning the apartment. I don't think that scrubbing the bathroom floor would be enough to tone my triceps. hehehe. So, really, I should not be complaining about my arms if I am not doing anything about it.

For those women, who, like myself, does not have the time to pick up a dumbbell or really does not have the time below are some tips and tricks to camouflage the arm flap :)

ACCESSORIES
1. When Accessorising, try and divert the attention to your wrists and hands. Load up on bangles and bracelets, statement watches, even cocktail rings. Don't stop at cocktail rings and bracelets and bangles, head to the salon and get the manicure, preferably in a dramatic, dark polish. Avoid talon like nails though.

CHOOSING THE SLEEVES
1. I have never really been paying attention to the sleeve length of my jackets until I realised that three quarter sleeves are very flattering as well as bracelet sleeves. Bracelet sleeves are slightly longer than the three quarters.

I do not have all the types of sleeves in my closet, so I am just posting pics from the web.
