Tory Burch transforms bugs and beetles from creepy crawly to ladylike looks at NY Fashion Week [Beautiful]5/13/2013 9:50:13 AM
tory burch transforms bugs and beetles from creepy crawly to ladylike looks at ny fashion week First of all, ditch the trends! Just let them go. Not everyone can wear skinny jeans and leggings, capri pants only flatter the best of legs, cropped t-shirts belong in a teenagers' closet (and not every teenager looks good in those either), stiletto heels should only be worn if you know how and with appropriate attire - certainly not to work where you have to run around all day and not to a family picnic where heels are certain to sink into the ground. Guys, overly low-slung pants don't look good on anyone - not even on the Gap models, perpetual sweats and baggy jeans make you look like a blob. Summer official footwear is undoubtedly the between-the-toe flip-flop, which leads us into our next men summer fashion mistake. It the barely there cover for your feet ideal for a backyard barbecue or a beachside jaunt. And that about as far as a flip-flop should go. The Merino sheep is specially bred and raised in a sheltered habitat to protect its fiber from the elements. This results in fiber which is softer, yet stronger than cashmere. It is extremely rare. Weather ranged from one extreme to the other, with sweltering heat in the summer and bitter cold in the winter. This was a fortunate boon to Yankee ingenuity, however, because it encouraged the diversification of agriculture and industry outside of staple products, unlike in the South. New Englanders were skilled merchants, lumberers, fishers, shipsmen, and industrial masters of the fledgling colonial enterprise. "Technology is increasingly a part of our everyday life, primarily through the explosion in uses for cell phones," she said. "A generation that has been completely immersed in technology is sort of coming of age and I think the interest is there. I think the technology is sort of catching up with the dreamer.. One should always come out in a decent dressing outfit. You cannot write a thesis the way you wrote your college assignments. Thesis Writing is a tough job, one cannot deliver a successful thesis unless you put your hundred percent in the research and ana . Women seem to be more concerned about special occasion dresses. They generally think of a brand new dress for every other fancy occasion. An expensive practice agreed, but can women really stay away from dressing in a special way for their special occasions? No. Cattiness. Superficiality. Money. The current version has never been sold in Britain, but is a massive hit across Europe. It isn't a big money-spinner for Renault, because of the slim profit margins on small cars, but bosses hope to shift the replacement up a segment, so they will be able to charge a premium. The Twingo will still serve as an entry-level car in some countries, but would be marketed as a trendy fashion accessory in others, which would include the UK..

How you can get this season's smart [Shop]5/10/2013 2:06:50 PM
how you can get this season's smart The last explanation for my hands-on approach may seem a bit new age. When you are working with a client there is an intimacy that a stylist and client share. Addressing all the body image issues one has developed over a lifetime is a stressful situation and there is a calming effect about the human touch. Immediately it allows me to be more inclusive by offering a wider range of fits, sizing and price points." Ms. Vincent is well-known for adding vintage touches to her collections. Her QVC collection offers many of her signature touches. - "Coming Home" Pooch Poncho. If adults and kids have ponchos and ponchettes, dogs can have one too! This particular pattern was designed after the "Coming Home" poncho worn by Martha Stewart. This is just the tiny version of it and specifically made for little dogs. Whether male or female, our appearance plays a huge role in how the world perceives us. It can determine whether or not we are successful in a job interview, or whether the object of our affection agrees or doesn't agree to a date. We use clothes to express who we are as individuals and to set ourselves apart from 'the crowd'.. He seemed reluctant to give me copies of my exams and at this point I will be speaking with the corporate office one final time and submitting my credit card dispute. I also asked her to intercede on my behalf to obtain my prescriptions which I found out is my right as per the FTC Release Rule I will not allow Cohen Fashion Optical to stand behind their refund policy as an excuse to perform poor exams and hand out glasses. Nor should I have to give them more then three chances to get it right. Soy meanwhile is having trouble dealing with events and she finds she is unable to actually bring herself to attend Unjoo funeral though she runs into Jung-un just outside the room who pleads with Soy as to what the reason for the suicide was. A flashback shows that up until the current school year Unjoo and Soy were the best of friends. Despite a pledge to remain friends despite being put into separate classes Unjoo starts to hang around with current classmates Eugene and Eun-young and she ignores Unjoo. That doesn't mean she's unattractive. She's quite beautiful, and I love all that long hair tied back in two of the largest ponytails I've ever seen. When she goes to Eva's resort and calls forth her artifact while in a one-piece bathing suit, the effect is quite stunning (wonderfully illustrated above by our good friends at Gambler Club.) Her artifact is the Orbis Sensualium Pictus.

forward ballet costumes in Black Swan [Shop]5/10/2013 2:03:39 PM
forward ballet costumes in Black Swan A US label is behind the costumes for Black Swan, the dark ballet thriller. FILM critics are abuzz over actress Natalie Portman's work in the new big-screen Black Swan, but fashionistas are flipping over something else - the film's forward-thinking ballet costumes by Rodarte, the insider-favourite label by sisters Laura and Kate Mulleavy. Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky said he and costume designer Amy Westcott wanted to use a contemporary fashion designer "to take it to a new level". "We wanted to reinvent the whole sense of Swan Lake,"' he said. Natalie Portman is wowed by sisters Laura and Kate Mulleavy's creations for Black Swan. - AP photo Portman, who was spotted in the front row of Rodarte runway shows during New York Fashion Week, had a relationship with the designers. "I remember seeing a dress of theirs at a photo shoot, and just going, 'What is that?"' recalled Portman. "I don't have that reaction to clothes very often. It is not something I really pay attention to that much. But it was just so beautiful. When we were doing this film, I just knew how balletic their clothes were." Rodarte had, coincidentally, already tapped into horror films and ballet, the same elements that are the foundation of Black Swan, as inspiration for past collections. Contemporary touch: A sketch of the Demon costume for the Darren Aronofsky film. "We had an affinity for the subject matter," noted Kate Mulleavy. "We had never done a film. This would be a dream job in terms of just getting to make tutus. But, then we had, I think, something that allowed us to add to access the psychology of the film in a different way, which was understanding the darker nature and more of the twisted kind of underbelly of that world." Nevertheless, producing fashion-forward ballet costumes proved a challenge. "Well, I think that the big question was, 'How do you make something look realistic as a tutu and function?"' explained Laura Mulleavy. Sometimes style took precedence over function. "You would never go and do Swan Lake and wear a full-on swan outfit without having a strap" to hold the outfit up, said actress Mila Kunis. "Given that it is in a movie and it is a certain form of disbelief. They had no straps. So, the busts kept constantly falling, you know. And so you make it work. You figure it out. But they were beautiful." Portman remains a fan and friend of the designers. "They are really kind," she said. "They are really curious about every sort of area of the world. They know everything about ecology and art and modern science. You are like, 'I don't understand how they have so much room in their brains.' It's amazing." - AP

The world of fashion as we know it today has witnessed a great deal of influence from the game of skateboarding.

Michelle Obama's Navy Inaugural Coat Is a Fashion Miss [Buy]5/9/2013 1:52:13 PM
Michelle Obama's Navy Inaugural Coat Is a Fashion Miss There's absolutely nothing wrong with the coat's style. It's sophisticated, stylish, sleek and I love the fitted form on top, with neat, narrow sleeves and a flared A-line style over the First Lady's hips. My one criticism is the color of the checked custom-made, gray coat, which apparently is worn with a matching dress beneath it. It's simply too dull. It will match the color of the pavement that the First Family will walk on the National Mall, and it matches the dull gray sky of the day. First Lady Style Speaks Volumes I really would have hoped Michelle would wear a bright color like she did at President Obama's first inauguration in 2009. I loved her chartreuse Isabel Toledo mohair coat and matching dress then. It was inspired and its' brilliant color gave a message of hope to the nation, which was in the first months of the terrifying and deep Great Recession. Now, we could still use that fashion message of hope. A bright outfit speaks of bright hopes for the nation's next four years. And that message goes beyond simple, great style. Michelle Obama: Following In The Footsteps of Jackie O Michelle has always worn bright colors so beautifully -- purple, green, blue and red. So I'm not sure why she went with gray today. Nevertheless, I give her top kudos for her pretty J Crew purple gloves, which perk up her coat, and those knee-high suede, low-heeled boots by American designer Reed Krakoff are so chic, millions of women are going to want them. There's no doubt that Michelle Obama is the First Lady style torch-bearer, carrying on from former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, but her outfits can set a tone just as much as her husband's speech. Speaking of that, maybe she should have tried yellow -- because we all want sunnier days ahead! What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Do you agree or not? Let me know!

How We Can Get the Mad Men Look [Shop]5/5/2013 5:23:10 PM
How We Can Get the Mad Men Look Janie Bryant is absolutely brilliant as the costume designer for AMC's Mad Men. Ever since the show premiered five seasons ago, fans became absolutely enamored with the suits, cocktail dresses and signature grooming on men that made the '50s and '60s two of fashion's greatest periods. With two episodes into the fifth season, trends have already started to emerge. The good news for big and tall men like myself is that such style is easy to emulate in your wardrobe. With the spring upon us -- supposedly, and summer right around the corner, it's the perfect time to use the casual aspects of Mad Men style to get along for the season. For those who haven't shopped spring/summer trends yet and need that extra inspiration, look to polos, short-sleeved button downs and slacks as essentials. Stay away from pants that are straight cut. Embrace the Mad Men office culture and characters like Stan Rizzo at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce and go big with color -- but be mindful of prints. Opt for solids and classic styling to get your point across. Do this with un-tucked shirts. A long draping effect looks good even in the spring and summer and it creates the illusion of a great fit -- even if clothes are just off the rack. Prep up your style with suiting separates and make sure to have a quality sports coat. They look good on everyone and wearing it unbuttoned can be just as effective. No need to be as stuffy with a button down -- sometimes, a polo will work too. When wearing short-sleeved shirts leave the top unbuttoned for a dressy-casual look. Banana Republic and Janie Bryant teamed for a second capsule collection for the brand inspired by the show. The clothes have a familiar feel to them -- making it easy to reference the show, though they don't come in larger sizes. For fit alternatives, look to departments stores with excellent tailor and fit services. Also look for accessories this season to get the most out of a finished look. Ties and belts make wardrobes pop and they're a good way to complete your look. Of course, sunglasses -- aviators, especially lends instant coolness. As a big and tall man, I hate a tight-look. The importance of fit is important on anyone, but I always place extra emphasis on my garments. Pants especially have to fit right. I never want things to look congested, and looking overly-large is never good either. If the right fit is achieved, it gives more freedom to experiment with color and print. This season, grooming should be a big priority. Stick to a clean and classic look in hair and face to emulate the agency men we watch every Sunday. Take that extra time in presentation as Don Draper would -- as he would surely say, presentation is everything.

How am I supposed to use ProXPN on an insecure network [Shop]5/5/2013 5:08:38 PM
how am i supposed to use proxpn on an insecure network For starters, Fashion Week encourages creativity. Those collections aren't created overnight. They represent months of work from a team of designers. Two decades ago, a fashion model was only slightly smaller than the average woman, just under ten percent thinner in most cases. Flash forward twenty years and the divide between the average woman and the fashion model is over twenty percent. And while that may not seem so shocking at first, consider this as well: plus size models in the fashion industry are shrinking as well. Sudeshna: Many people think that fashion is very frivolous and do not take it seriously. What do you have to say on that? Anirban: It is true that a lot of people in our country think that fashion is very frivolous and has just to do with the fancy of a designer. It is not like that. Do this everyday for a week or 2, and im sure youre oh so expensive, nice clothes from Beverly Hills, will no longer show youre ribs. Fact is, NO MAN WANTS A WOMAN THAT THEY ARE GONNA BREAK WHEN THEY STICK EM, ONCE! I hang out with guys, alll the time, and the most popular phrase? "I like a girl with soem meat on them bones. I dont want a girl im gonna break, i want a girl i can twist, turn and pound, without worry." So you jus keep gettin on topix, actin like your a classy, sexy woman when really you are only making yourself look like a husband fucking crackhead that thinks she better than people who actually EAT. Blu-ray DVDs are still a risky, if not to some unnecessary, upgrade. With DVD players and HD-TVs improving DVDs already Blu-rays have to step it on the picture quality and the special features. The Matrix on Blu-ray is a perfect example of the potential this new format can deliver making it worth the upgrade.. The hotel is near world class shopping, entertainment, and dining at Westfield mall, The Promenade at Howard Hughes Center, Santa Monica third street promenade, and the Grove. The hotel is also near the LA Fashion and Jewelry Districts. The city bus line arrives right at Airpark Hotel's doorstep, making it easy and convenient for you to get to any point in Los Angeles. So here we are: red is the sleeper of the season, and it's manifested itself in some pretty unconventional, taste-challenging ways, too. Red trousers are unexpectedly, unbelievably, catching on amongst fashion sorts. I cannot actually think of a time when people I know, however avant-garde, would ever have been caught wearing anything other than black, beige, grey, blue or white on their legs, so this is a first.
