Posts in Nancy Ganz

It has been a little while since I shared a haul from my trip to the US of A a few months back. Terribly sorry. I hope you liked the jewellery though. I have been wearing the stuff like crazy but I still need some help on styling it. Anyway, this post is not about jewellery. This post is about my fat ass … and tummy, back and legs.

Last week I showed you my current body shape. Over the last few months, while this body shape was developing, I started to feel the need for some controlling undergarments ….. in other words, SPANX.

What Are Spanx

Ultimately, Spanx are undergarments that you wear under your clothes. The difference between Spanx and regular slips or tanks, is that these are all about controlling the bulge. They work similar to the control-top you can find on pantyhose, but they are stronger, tougher and more wearable.

It doesn’t matter if you are fat or thin, Spanx are designed to slim the sillouhette. That means, no visible bulge lines, bra lines, panty lines, etc.

I briefly looked in David Jones, one of the Australian retailers, but there was a lot to choose from and I just didn’t have the time or patience to deal with it. I figured I would put it off until I was in the US where I actually had some down time.

I knew I wanted a dress/slip style and a top/tank style. Here is what I came home with.  Continue Reading

End of Year Sales Fashion Shopping Inspiration

The Boxing Day and End of Year sales are in full-swing. While this can be a fab time to pick up a great deal, it’s not such a money saver if you buy things you don’t need or really want. Having a shopping list of what to buy is one of my most valuable tips for being a savvy sale shopper. However, I’ll admit that sometimes there are things out there I didn’t know I needed. Sometimes, I need someone to introduce me to the things I didn’t know (or forgot) I needed. That’s what I’m offering you some end of year sales shopping inspiration by sharing some of the great goodies I picked up during the Cyber Week sales.

These are the beauty and fashion goodies I got during Black Friday, Cyber Weekend and Cyber Monday.  Continue Reading
