Cotton vs Polyester

  • The Uses of Cotton and Polyester:
    Polyester is used for a wide variety of objects and in an array of manufacturing. It’s used for everything from floppy discs, to food packaging and of course, materials for bedding and bed linen among other things. Cotton is also very versatile, it is used in everything from clothing, to towels, to linen and 2010 estimates placed its economic worth at over £70 billion.
  • Manufacturing:
    Cotton is an extremely absorbent, breathable material and comes from the cotton plant. This means it is a great material for allowing the skin to breath and is also strong, durable and can be washed at high temperatures – making it ideal for cleaning of heavy stains. However, cotton can vary in quality depending on the factors used in its manufacturing. Polyester is man-made and comes from a mixture of chemicals, as well as water, oil and coal. It

Hats Grow In Popularity

The trapper hat, which once was confined to Lumberjacks, Russian Soldiers and Eskimos has become a fashion icon of our times. With a huge choice of hats ranging from traditional fur-lined to through to the brightly coloured version with pom-poms and tassels, the trapper hat will never be seen in quite the same way again.

Beanie hats, which were once confined to ski slopes and football supports are now ‘de rigeur’ for any fashion conscious young person. Bugatti and Bruno Banani are both German brands but this phenomenon is not confined to the Western world as teens from all over the globe positively embrace this new trend in the fashion world.

High profile superstars and A-listers help of course and when such luminaries David Beckham, Jennifer Lopez (J-Lo) and Madonna to name just a few, are seen wearing these new fashion accessories their fans will eventually follow suit.

Jacket or Hoodie

Jackets are one of the oldest items of clothing in our history. The word ‘coat’ can be traced back to the Persians however, they have been a standard part of a person’s wardrobe since as far back as the middle ages. Now there are jackets for almost any occasion or activity that you can think of.

The Hoodie has a similarly archaic provenance, having first been worn by monks in medieval Europe. It wasn’t until the 1970s when hip-hop culture started developing that the hoodie really became popular, and this popularity continued well into the mid-nineties. By which time the hoodie had also found a home within the skateboarding and surfing cultures.

Within recent years however, the hoodie has garnered a rather undesirable reputation. Hoodies have often been used to conceal a person’s identity whilst they engage in criminal activity. This has resulted in the, often unfair, stereotyping of anybody …


Plus Size Fur Coats

First of all, understand that a fur coat is an investment that could potentially last for several decades with proper care. They are rarely cheap, so this decision should be researched thoroughly and approached carefully. If this is your first fur, you will be able to get more mileage out of it by choosing a style that you can wear again and again, for a variety of different purposes and in multiple environments.

The more wears you get out of your coat, the less it will cost per wear, meaning more enjoyment and a greater return on investment. For this reason, it is advisable to first consider where and under what situations you can most often wear your fur. While a dramatically elegant full-length coat is great for a black-tie event, you are far more likely to wear a comfortable stroller that will make you feel sexy and confident in …

The gel cushions can also be used in places where you avoid foam cushions. They ensure comfort as well as relief from pain and other troubles.

How to Work Heels

  • Start Gradually
    This first tip is a good one. Don’t rush off and buy six-inch stilettos, thinking you can make an easy transition from flats. It’s suggested that you start off with a low-heel, about two inches or so, to ease your feet into the shape. This height is pretty comfortable and you can still look great. Eventually when you feel adjusted, you can move up to a mid-heel which is usually between two and four inches tall. From there, it’s only a matter of time until your working a fabulous six-inch heel!
  • Practice, Practice, Practice
    Wearing your heels around the house is a great way to practice your balance and improve your strides. I tried walking around the house, doing chores and relaxing in my heels for a few hours. At first I wobbled a bit and was only able to take really small steps. I definitely didn’t look

Korean Fashion

Firstly, Asia’s ex-leading fashion trendsetter has introduced, if not made better, some of the most fashionable ladies’ blouses and dresses for quite some time. It is only natural that they would run out of ideas after taking such a long lead. Therefore, Korea took this opportunity to snatch the lead from Japan after its fashion creativity has run dry.
