How to dress short women
Not that I really liked to utter obvious and useless aphorisms (like the immortal" if you want to be happy, be it " by Kozma prutkov), but sometimes life makes…

Socks: instructions for dummies

Any body without clothing, or in clothing that fits, is still geometrically closer to the rectangle than to any other shape. And if you put a belt on this rectangle, then visually we will not get any such waist, but we will get two rectangles: Continue reading

Spring reincarnation
