In the 1950s, early rockers like Buddy Holly gave wearing glasses a cool factor, a sensibility that expanded during the 1960s, when it became hip to be “real” about one’s eyesight. John Lennon squinted through much of his time with the Beatles, until he finally donned a pair of wire-rimmed Windsor glasses. Wire-rimmed glasses became fashion de rigueur for optically-challenged hipsters in the late 1960s and early 1970s. During the same era, Elton John became intrinsically linked with his over-the-top eyewear.
In the mainstream media of the 1950s and 1960s, glasses were still being portrayed as decidedly un-cool, something worn by out-of-fashion intellectuals and nerds. All that Superman needed to do to hide his superhero identity was to throw on a pair of glasses, instantly transforming into “mild mannered” Clark Kent. That association of glasses with intellect and manners, however, helped businessman and politicians embrace the look as part of a professional persona.

When you picture a chandelier, it’s this grand dangling centerpiece in a house, usually sparkly and glittery, that automatically becomes the focal point of the room. Chandelier earrings are so-named because they exhibit the same characteristics as that room chandelier. They’re dangling from one’s earrings, usually glittery from the array of semi-precious and precious stones, and when worn, usually serve as the main ornament to complete the wardrobe ensemble.
Chandelier earrings are usually made of lightweight materials so that they don’t put that much pressure on the ear lobe. Some chandelier earrings are affixed to the ear using a stud (an earring with a backing). Some chandelier earrings have hooks, usually made of a thin wire, that are inserted into the earlobe and left to hang or dangle. They may get heavy when the materials used to design the piece are heavy themselves. For instance, if you use diamonds or other precious stones, and you put many of these stones, … Read the rest
Safety is always the most important factor when choosing clothing for your infant and baby PJs are no exception. Select infant pajamas that fit snugly to prevent the child from becoming entangled in loose fabric. This is especially important for very young babies who are unable to free themselves easily. Snug fitting infant pajamas also reduce the risk of burns during a fire.
The weight of baby sleepwear is also an important consideration. It’s unsafe for newborns and young babies to have blankets and quilts in their cribs for fear of accidental suffocation. For this reason, parents should select baby pajamas that are heavy enough to keep the child warm. Winter weather calls for a thicker material, no matter what the age of the child, while a lightweight, breathable fabric is ideal for spring and summer months.
Some baby PJs are fitted with zippers while others have button closures. Examine these features closely before purchasing because the zippers may be … Read the rest

For men’s official gathering, a printed V-neck sweater goes well enough with a peekaboo belt, grey pants and black shoes. You can even have a bow tie and a fashionable watch shining on your arm.

That of my tender infancy, and that’s very welcome! With regards to footwear, I recently talked to you about the revival of the Timberland brand. Well, ploughing the same furrow, it’s also the brands like the 80’s child Bensimon that top all the polls.
Although Bensimon hasn’t really ever been absent from the hearts of trendsetters, its simplicity and its authenticity has allowed it to traverse a career of more than 25 years, without showing a wrinkle. And naturally, it’s been in the last few summers that the fashionistas have got out their 1980’s elasticated tennis shoes en mass.
Because these shoes can be worn any way: in town, at the beach, with a pair of trousers, a dress, a skirt, and even in the car! Without giving in to unreasonable inflation, Bensimon continues its way serenely, with styles that multiply the possibilities, while keeping faithful to the original idea. It gets its inspiration from military surplus to create fashionised … Read the rest
It is a mechanism being used from age-old days where a stencil is first created with the design that is to be printed on the t-shirts. A stencil is nothing but mostly silk with the design embedded in it. The design area will be porous and the other areas will be non porous and will not allow the ink to pass through them. Then, the stencil is being placed on the apparel and the ink is then spread on the stencil. Now, the ink passes through the permeable layer in the stencil onto the piece of garment. Now, the ink gets embedded onto the t-shirt. Then, the stencil is removed and printed apparel is sent for curing which is a process done for drying the print and also helps the print to get a polished look.
Screen printing has its own advantages and disadvantages. Some of it advantages are good quality prints and a smooth feel of the apparel. Some … Read the rest
