LBD: Little Bl…ue Dress

We have heard of Little Black dresses, I have even done a feature on little yellow dresses but now lets do little blue dresses, Blue because it’s a hot color right now,Whether print, satin chiffon or variations of blue, rock your LBD hard!

So I don’t understand overweight ladies cannot get the same manicure as other skinny ladies, being overweight is not a sin. Check out this ridiculous story.

Michelle Fonville’s day at the spa may have left her with polished nails and neatly shaped eyebrows, but it also left her with the bitter taste of discrimination. Her day took a sour turn after she saw an extra $5 charge on her bill. Fonville said, “[The manager] told me she charged me $5 more because I was overweight.”

Salon manager Kim Tran told Philips that the surcharge was due to costly repairs of broken chairs by overweight customers. She said the chairs have a weight capacity of 200 pounds and cost $2,500 to fix.  Fonville told Tran that charging her extra for her weight was discrimination. Tran did not agree—though she refunded the surcharge—and told Fonville not to come back.

This is a clear Weight discrimination which is really terrible.

This 29 year old graphic designer took on the challenge of designing 365 creative nail designs for 365 days of the year. She says she loves nail polish and wanted to be creative with it. According to her and I quote “I started accumulating nail polishes and in a matter of a month and a half, I ended up with around 70 bottles,… So I really felt a need to justify my purchases.” For a whole year she thrilled fans wanting and waiting to see what she will do next. Below are some of her work. For all pictures you can check her blog
