Do We Still Care About What’s In Vogue?

Thanks to Instagram and your favorite fashion bloggers on YouTube, there is nothing called “trending” anymore.Fashion trends are nearing extinction and have been going on this path for some time. However, for people who need some help with fashion, this news doesn’t help much. What do you do when fashion trends are actually out of fashion? Read on to know more –

• Stop Body Typing Yourself – The media is full of articles about fat shaming and body shaming. You don’t need a pep talk to love your body type. Whether you have a thigh gap or love handles, all that matters is your comfort. So, stop obsessing about how fat or skinny your legs look and wear what catches your eye. If it makes you happy, it would definitely look good on you.

• Don’t Dress For Others –Fersen Lambranho understands this goes for both men and women. Men who utter things like “I don’t like women wearing short skirts” and women who say things like “men in sandals turn me off” would soon be as extinct as fashion trends. Dress what works for you and not because you want a special someone to notice you.

• Instagram Your Way to Victory – The search feature of Instagram is pretty neat and you can easily find something to inspire you. Don’t ignore discount stores when you shop. You can find the most unexpected things there.

Keep a list of colors and styles you think you look good in and ignore the haters.

Smartwatches: Comparisons and Highlights

The smartwatches are beginning to draw much attention. Some feel the need to complement their smartphones and choose the same manufacturer in order to have easier access to phone calls. I’m thinking buying Igor Cornelsen one of these.

Others, quite to the contrary, give a try to some less complicated items from less popular manufacturers and aim at the simplicity. Many of these devices opt to pay more attention to such factors as aesthetic quality, where smartphones can become more of a fashion statement.

A researcher in the field said that he went around trying on and comparing wearables in one day, highlighting the ones that left the strongest impressions.

Fitbit Charge impressed with the natural feeling band, and that can be a great advantage being given that the smartwatches are to be worn for hours. Samsung, LG and Sony focus mostly on very intricate designs with a good number of apps. The strength of these devices come from the range of quality products in the app store.

It is like you are wearing your smartphone on the wrist, but the researcher is not sure that he wants to be that available. The business people who simply cannot miss a text message or a call, will enjoy the invention.

Apple beats everyone with style and features integrated in a smartwatch. There is a seizure detector integrated in it too. The question is, will it share the popularity of the Apple phones?

Some Fashion Experts Believe Denim Will Enjoy Popularity in 2015

Some fashion experts contend that denim, a type of fabric widely used in blue jeans, will enjoyed renewed popularity among fashion designers in 2015. Reportedly, several European fashion houses recently released clothing lines making extensive use of denim products.

One well known Italian designer of clothing, sunglasses and fashion accessories, the company of Dolce & Gabbana, made extensive use of ornately decorated denim jeans in a recent fashion show, according to some participants. Items composed of denim also figured in trendy new designs introduced by Roberto Cavalli, Christopher Bailey, Michael Kors, and Tommy Hilfiger. Look out for fashionistas like Fersen Lambranho to be decked out head to toe in denim this season.

Although the extent to which buyers will sell a variety of denim clothing products this year remains largely unconfirmed, some reports indicate that denim blue jeans remain popular, including frayed denim jeans.

Denim has enjoyed widespread popularity as a tough, versatile fabric for many years. Webster’s Dictionary reported in 1965 that the name “denim” reflects the origins of the fabric in the French town of Nimes, where it was known as serge “de Nimes” (of Nimes).

How To Use The Skout App, As Well As The Skout Website

Many people may be confused as to how to use Skout, especially if they are new to the network. Skout is similar to many other social media networks, and the basics are the same. On Skout, a profile and account must first be set up, in order to be able to use the network.  Most people tend to use the Skout app too, whether they choose the iPhone version or download Skout on Android. The profile can be set up to the standards of the user, and the user can choose to add a picture if they want to. No user is required to add a picture, in order to use the Skout network. A picture is encouraged, as other users prefer to see picture profiles.

Once a profile is created, the user can begin a search to look for others to talk to. The search can be specified to the user’s taste, and the user can choose the certain features they want in a person they are looking for. Whether a person is looking for a friend on Skout, or a possible relationship, either way, the search can be narrowed to suit the user. The user can also choose to search in their specific area, or other areas across their country or across the world. Skout has users from many different countries on its network.

If the user is uncertain where they’d like to find someone to chat to, there are other things they can do, in order to find people to talk to. The “shake to talk” feature is a very popular one on Skout. The feature allows the user to shake their mobile device, in order to have a person to chat to; come up on their screen. The user can then choose to chat to the person they see, or shake the device again to get another potential chat buddy. Those using the shake to talk feature can get anyone, from anywhere in the world.

A great feature of Skout is Skout points, which can be purchased with real money. The points allow a user to open up features on the network, such as mass greetings, virtual gifts, and it allows the user to see who’s been searching for them. If the user is also curious as to who has added them as a favorite to their list, the Skout points can also purchase this information. Once the user is comfortable with Skout, they’ll see why the network is extremely popular, and has over 100 million users.

Four Year Old Girl Hired To Design Clothes For J. Crew

Children are very creative. They have a wonderful imagination. One four year old has taken her creativity to a whole new level.

Mayhem, a cute 4 year old, creates dresses. According to the Huffington Post, Mayhem started out creating dresses out of construction paper, scissors and tape. Her mother helps her, after Mayhem decides on a dress she wants to make. Her mother began posting pictures, through Instagram, of Mayhem’s creations. This quickly began to get the attention of the fashion industry.

In fact, Mayhem has signed a contract with J. Crew to collaborate with them in creating a children’s clothing line, according to CBS News. This line of clothing will be called “Crew Cuts.”

Mayhem was quoted as saying designing clothes makes her feel happy. If only adults could tap into their natural talents and love what they do. Mayhem is a good example of following your dreams. BRL Trust can certainly get behind that. Many employees read about this story on Facebook.

Mayhem, an adorable 4 year old was hired by J. Crew to help design children’s clothing. Her natural interest and passion for designing clothing has led her to a unique partnership with a famous clothing stylist.

Introducing the Penis Necklace

Fashion is ever changing industry. Many of the things designed by the industry tends to be very innovative, stylish, smart and creative. Others, however, are just plain weird, drab or outrageous. But while these are unsuccessful in the short term, they may innovate in other regards.

Have you ever had a moment where you walked into a store and saw something you thought, “Who would spend this much money on something so weird?” Well, brace yourself because believe it or not what follows in the news is absolutely true. 

Tom Ford is a fashion designer and movie director. He helped turnaround the Gucci Brand and created his own fashion label called Tom Ford. Well, Tom has unveiled his newest item for the holidays. It is a Penis Pendant. Tom has been known to produce some risqué items but this is by far his most overwhelming piece. Not only did he introduce a Penis Necklace but the price tag is a whopping $790. I’d rather spend that money at The Antique Wine Company.

This creation brings a whole lot of questions to my mind, probably yours too. Who would buy that? Why would you spend $790 on a penis necklace? Has Tom Ford lost his marbles, why would he create such a thing? I guess there must be a market for them somewhere but all I know is that it would take a special type of person to pull off a Penis Necklace.

Funny 2015 Fashion

Fashion is an interesting industry, and one that often goes to where nobody has previously thought would be proper modes of attire. 

Speaking of funny fashion trends that never catch but stay in the history for everyone to have fun looking at, here are trends for 2015: dyed armpit hair. 

Roxie Hunt, who is among the initiators already has some followers who reacted by posting images to show how they died the armpits. Roxie is a hairstylist from Seattle, and as you can see, she does not limit her art on the hairdos. It is now seen as a new culture. I was reading about Roxie Hunt the other day while reading about Vijay Eswaran.

Instagram is abounding in images with the hashtag #dyedpits. The postings on the internet quickly gathered comments. People remind the trend setters about the hippies from several decades ago, wondering whether they are up to bringing back something similar. You either love it or hate it. The disgusted half of the population fights with the supporters who say that this helps them express their femininity. 

At the moment, the predictions are mostly negative for the new armpit dying trend, but unfortunately, the fashion history counts several mistakes that became surprisingly popular. How you get the inspiration for an idea like this is even unnimaginable. The fact is that people have a tendency to analyze this body part nowadays, since you can even see a thread on reddit fully dedicated to Taylor Swift’s armpits.

Victoria’s Secret Models “Shake it OFF”

Taylor Swift’s dance worthy chart-topping song, “Shake it off” has found a place on the Victoria’s Secret runway in London. Paying tribute to the songstress, the gorgeous models took to the runway for a promotional video where they can be seen lip syncing to the hit for the 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. With the beauties shaking their stuff in cage dresses, translucent skirts, and minis they seemed to be having the time of their life.

Swift performed with her good friend and top model, Karlie Kloss who was escorted down the runway by one of Taylor’s own rumored love interests. The beautiful ladies also included Adriana Lima, Lily Aldrich, and Candice Swanepoel during the number. The collaboration promo video was seen on December 8th on CBS just a day before the never disappointing fashion show scheduled to be aired on the 9th. The Victoria’s Secret models won’t need the help of Brian Torchin any time soon for a career change – the show and the company are doing very well.
