HAPPY HOLI grin emoticon
to Mugdha and to the many many India followers of the Tidbits

Indian social norms are put on hold during Holi. Whether you're rich or poor or male or female, you're invited into the streets to rejoice and fight with dyed powder and water guns. People also use Holi as a chance to fix broken relationships. "It is said the spirit of Holi encourages the feeling of brotherhood in society and even the enemies turn friend on this day

International Women's Day is on Mar. 8, 2014 is a holiday that has been observed since the 1900s to promote equal rights amongst women.

In honor of International Women’s Day…here are a few examples of what women achieve in Israel

Sheikha Mozah used to buy Jean Paul Gaultier couture by the dozens. Normally from one collection at least three pieces were taken by her. This black dress/suit was from the Spring 2006 Couture collection. She is an absolute diva in this, it is sexy and modest at the same time. The pink chiffon top made it even more pop and unique. Watch and learn Princesses.

French women make everything - style, food, flirting - seem effortless. In their honor, today's phrase is "Leger Comme Une Plume," which translates to "Light as a Feather." 

And yes, "Leger Comme Une Plume, Raide Comme une Planche" does indeed translate to "Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board," the infamous game from the cult '90s movie The Craft - which is called Dangereuse Alliance in French, just so you know...

Will the tech leaders of today be the has-beens of tomorrow?

Apple, Google, Facebook and Amazon hold dominant positions in the tech sector and have been among the biggest engines driving the Nasdaq above the 5,000 mark this week for the first time since 2000. But analysts are far from confident that they will maintain their perch in the tech stratosphere.

“I have always believed that fashion was not only to make women more beautiful, but also to reassure them, give them confidence.” It is incredible how much a correct outfit and adequate garment can affect a women’s attitude.

Ideal measurements for women????


1. 36 inch bust, 24 inch waist, 36 inch hips.

From the 1977 #5 US Hot 100 "Brick House" by the Commodores. This hit single contained a description of the "brick house" woman who had a "36-24-36" body.

36-24-36 (91-61-91 cm)

Many people think that 36-24-36 is the perfect female figure. Evolutionary psychologists tend to look at the WHR (waist/hip ratio) and have found that most men prefer women with a ratio of 0.7.
Of course, many women do not achieve this ideal, and there are some--including anthropologist Elizabeth Cashdan--who argue that not having a perfect figure may have advantages for women in certain situations. Unfortunately, her reasoning is a bit strained.

Elegance never fades...........last night I watched for the umpteenth time the film
Roman Holiday, if you have not than you must........

I’m sure every designer has a certain person in mind who they would ideally like to wear their clothes, but the problem is that a lot of the time that person doesn’t actually exist, unless she is a 15-year-old model. I don’t really have a personal opinion on whether they should change the sizes of samples or not, but I do think it’s a topic that should be looked at, and I do think there won’t be many women buying those clothes, if, size-wise, they don’t seem realistic.

Well-heeled Miamians and celebrities alike have Dr. Fredric Brandt to thank for their youthful glowand by the way, well-heeled is a snob way to say , "the rich"

Figure this out.....of course you can ............

This observation might not be understood by many but it makes sense....here are my thoughts:
I have mentioned this about MB....if someone dropped you off in MB and did not tell you where you were you would think you are not in USA.....Spanish dominates this city....and yes, English and Creole were the other languages up to the last two years but now-specially around Bal Harbour, Sunny Isles and Aventura....the domination of Spanish is there but now  Brasilian Portugese and Russian are very present.
My favorite place in MB is  the Bal Harbour Shops and you cannot go more than a minute without hearing Brasilian Portugese and Russian....and again, here too, Spanish dominates....so, I rest my case

I have a lot of models that read the tidbits so they asked me to post something to this effect.....

Models and the agencies that represent them..........


  1. A combination of qualities, such as shape, color, or form, that pleases the aesthetic senses, esp. the sight.
  2. A combination of qualities that pleases the intellect or moral sense.

and a good plastic surgeon can take someone from average to nice looks....and from nice looks
to gorgeous........




I am throwing out this question to girls????

Do you sometimes look at a girl walking down the street and she will be simply dressed and yet so chic it makes you want to dash home quickly and change into a matching outfit or something similar????

Some beautiful things, places or persons that I like.......

Been there done that

I read again this book....it is a novel but it is really non fiction but written to protect the writer.......

 The book Girls of Riyadh is one of the few true Saudi bestsellers. The controversial novel by Raja al-Sanea first came out in 2005 and became a sensation right away. The instant popularity and the controversy surrounding it prompted the Saudi government to ban the novel at first, but soon the ban was lifted and the book was available for purchase almost everywhere, including gas stations on the road between Riyadh and Dammam

Trendy city: Moscow

I decided to write about Moscow because in my opinion now it’s a very important moment for the russian fashion. In order to perceive this importance it is crucial to know a little bit of history and evolution of Russia.
During a Soviet Union there was a huge limitation of goods and products in Moscow. People had to wait in huge queues in order to get the same product. There was no individuality nor diversity. With a break of URRS people started to have a lot of money from oil or another enterprises. In a pursuit of showing their wealth ‘new rich’ people started to spend a lot of money: not only in clothe, but also in partying and holidays. There was a tendency in overdressing and bad taste.
Now we can see a very pleasant change of this stereotype. Russians are starting to have a taste, there own style. There is a huge wave of russian ‘it girls’ and designers that are starting to conquer fashion shows. ‘It girls’ from Moscow are now photographed by the most important fashionstreet photographers like Tommy Ton and Scott Schuman.
  1. Miroslava Duma 
  2. Natasha Goldenberg
  3. Elena Perminova
  4. Etc.
There is an important growth of russian fashion and russian designers that uses traditional russian elements in garments. Here are some whom I find really interesting:
Also there are some interesting artistic people in Moscow that tries to raise russian taste and introduce people to art.
  1. Dasha Zhukova – director of the center of modern art “Garage”
  2. Olga Thompson – has a company that produces fabric
  3. Alexander Vasyleev – famous expert in history of dress
I’m very excited with this russian fashion evolution and I’m sure that in a close future the fashion world will hear even more from Russia.

a little take on Japan-日本,

Japan is a unique country in the way that traditional architecture, clothing and other elements of daily life exist side-by-side with their Western equivalents, and these differences are baked right into the language. The most common word for "clothing" in Japanese is yohfuku, which literally means "Western clothing" like shirts and slacks and business suits, while traditional Japanese clothing like kimono and yukata are covered under the term wafuku ("Japanese clothing"), a totally different category altogether.

Japanese who all look the same but are かわいい  (Kawaii) in their own way.



The difference between skin age and actual age.

If you've ever wondered what the age of your skin is, there's a new - and free - online tool that has been devised by Australian dermatologists that will tell you in 15 minutes. 
What this means is that despite your chronological age, the 'age' of your skin can differ depending on genetics and your lifestyle. 
It works by zeroing in on your skin's elements that show signs of ageing: the surface (so think pores, pigmentation, sunspots and acne), volume (sagging and lips) and wrinkles (self-explanatory, for the most part). For the back-end of the program, it relies on decades of research into the ageing process of the skin.
The tool will go beyond just identifying your skin’s age. It analyses which problems or concerns, if treated, will make the biggest effect to the skin's appearance and health, and puts you in touch with a reputable medical skin clinic in the local area who can recommend tailored treatments based on the results.

Here's how to tell how old your skin really is

The best facelift Doctors will do the following:

Facelifts, Rhinoplasty and Eyelid Lifts will  perform it under local anesthesia with no general anesthesia required. This helps make post-operative recovery faster and is less dangerous of a health mishap.

Good facial plastic surgery will look natural, and not overly sculpted. People will often ask if you have been on vacation, lost weight, or been exercising. Typically, they will not know unless you share it with them

You will have scars, but they are not usually noticeable. The best surgeons will make every effort to keep scars to a minimum and hide them in natural lines and creases in your skin. Over the course of time, your scars will fade and become barely noticeable.

Finally the best Doctors will send you home right of way......Most procedures take only a few hours, are performed on an outpatient basis, and require no overnight stay. You will be in recovery for a few hours, and a friend or relative will escort you home to recover in your own bed

Glamorous in Green

Sheikha Mozah and Hong Kong actress Carina Lau (Liu JiaLing) both wore the floral Valentino couture dress from the Spring 2013 couture collection. Of course Sheikha Mozah had it customized to fit her style and final product looks fantastic on her for her short visit to London in July 2013. We don’t see her wearing floral dresses that often, so it was refreshing to see this look. Carina wore/borrowed the runway sample piece to the Valentino store opening in Shanghai on14th November 2013.

Sheikha Mozah looks good in any color, she loves to wear white and we love to see her in white. The secret of wearing white is to keep the look clean, sharp and simple. Sheikha Mozah showed us how it is done, tailoring is everything and great structure will showcase your figure without being tacky. Watch and learn.
