Fall Fashion Trend – Take Your Jacket To The Shrink

images2

Fall and winter may have brought out long peacoats and trenches before, but not this year. One of the most sought-after pieces for the upcoming season will be the shrunken jacket, in a variety of styles. The difference between these new, tinier versions of your traditional autumn and winter favorites is their length; cuts are the same as traditional coats, but they hit slightly above the waist and often tie or button under the chest. The beauty of these new pieces is that they provide coverage in colder months without sacrificing sexiness or femininity.

The perfect jacket is one of the most important elements of your wardrobe, and with so many shapes and fabrics available this fall, it would be a crime to choose just one. The ever-present denim jacket is back with a new vengeance. Instead of the washes of last season or bulkiness of years before, this seasons denim jacket is soft, body-conscious and far more feminine than the traditional denim jacket. Corduroy and leather are back again, cropped and ready to be worn over anything from your favorite dress to distressed jeans.

A new take on an old favorite is safe, but take advantage on the amazing new fabrics and styles the end of the year has to offer. Brocade is big this season and some of the most sought-after new jackets are made of the rich, detailed design. Many of these brocaded, boudoir-style jackets are trimmed in rich velvet or lace piping and can be paired with tweed trousers of you favorite jeans. Many of these new jackets are cut at the hip but some are reaching even highercropped just below the chest (H & M). Made in rich, new fabrics like tweed and velvet, these jackets have mixed a traditionally matronly fabric with a cut and cling that makes it youthful and sexy. Even faux fur and metallic finishes are adorning the newest trend (Allen B. by Allen Schwartz).

Getting short isnt the only new addition to a cold weather favorite. Sleeves are getting revamped this season, retro-style. Traditional coat fabrics like houndstooth are being used in a new way. Bell sleeves (think bellbottom sleeves, cut below the elbow) mix cropped length with a traditional fabric and throwback to 70s style (Banana Republic). Youll also see a mini version of the military jacket this season; a cropped, girlie take on the long, heavy style, adorned with brass buttons and zippers (Bebe).

The beauty of these new jackets is the versatility they bring to your own style: mix them with denim, dresses, skirts and trousers. Since there isnt one specific style or fabric that will reign this fall, all styles and sizes can take advantage of a new take on an old favorite.

Eco Gifts 5 Tips On Giving Stylish Eco Freindly Gifts

fashion4

Increasingly there is an awareness of the ecological aspect of gift giving, both on an individual level, and by companies who are anxious to incorporate sustainability as a part of their gift giving. We are often asked to supply eco gifts, and find it is not difficult to find suitable gifts, but it may take a little extra thought.

This does not mean adopting a tie-dyed hippy approach, but instead a little consideration to find stylish yet more sustainable gifts. We have all experienced one of those other gifts at some time. Multi layered packaging, which eventually reveals a clam-shell like plastic casing, which in turn protects its treasure of some cheaply made item which barely lasts past Christmas. All which will find its way to the nearest landfill before long.

There are many ways to give more eco friendly gifts. Five of the key considerations are:

Shop locally.
If you are supplying a locally made gift, you will not be adding additional transportation miles to the finished product. You are also in a position to know more about the environmental stance and reputation of the manufacturer as regards pollution, recycling etc.

Buy quality.
Cheaply made products inevitably do not last, requiring replacement sooner and creating more waste. The recipient and the environment will appreciate your good judgment in choosing a quality item instead of an alternative of inferior quality.

Encourage environmentally sound behaviour with your gift.
For example give a tree to be planted, or perhaps a book on gardening or environmental issues. Consider solar powered gifts, or those that can take batteries which are solar powered. Children can be enthused with gifts like a paper making kit (involving recycling of paper) or making a worm house

Choose the most appropriate gifts you can.
Spend time considering your recipients. Well chosen gifts will encourage their usage and retention. This makes your gift more appreciated, and less likely to make a quick journey to the landfill. Consider artisan hand made gifts. These may be more unique, and can have more appeal on an emotional level, and therefore be retained longer. They may also be better made than a mass manufactured alternative, and therefore will last longer.

Consider the materials your gift is made with, and packed in.
Are there more natural materials or even recycled options available? Is there a more natural packaging alternative, for example woven flax gift baskets, jute bags or wooden boxes made from sustainably harvested pine trees with wood shavings.

With a little thought and consideration of environmental impact, your gifts can be both stylish and sustainable.

We are happy to help with advice, and you should not hesitate to ask your gift retailer for more information, which will encourage more stocking of environmentally sound products.

A Lifestyle Without Boundaries

images1

Life is for living, yet for so many, it means being tied down to a job, stuck in one place, one holiday per year if you’re lucky, and then only for a few weeks. And to save money you visit relatives so you can save on accommodation! Sound familiar. We’ve all done it.

Well it’s time to get out of the boring, dull and monotonous routine and start living. Time to break through the barriers that hold you back. Time to start putting your dreams into action and your goals into reality!

And here’s how to make it happen.

Rule number one – Get Started!

It’s no good talking about it, thinking about it, wishing for it or waiting for someone else to make it happen. If you want it all, you have to do it all, simple as that.

Stop comparing someone else’s life with your own, and wishing yours was better. Make it better. That’s what a lifestyle without boundaries is all about. And anyone can do it, you just have to get started.

Doing the same thing the same way, year in year out will not get you the results you want. You need change. You need a different direction, and you need action.

As the saying goes “Actions speak louder than words”. And how true it is. Talking about a better life won’t get you one, but putting a plan into action will.

Rule number 2 – Keep At It.

So many people make the decision to change, stick at it for a month or maybe even a year, but as soon as it gets too hard they give up. If you want it all, if you want a lifestyle without boundaries, you can not be a quitter. Quitting is not an option, and you must be prepared to take the word quit out of your vocabulary if you are ever going to be successful and achieve your goals.

Finally rule number 3 – Don’t Let Others Drag You Back.

The road to where you want to go won’t be a smooth one, let’s be practical. There will be bumps, twists and turns. But you must stay on the track if you want to finish the journey. So be prepared, there will be plenty of people trying to pull you back. They will offer all sorts of advice, they will tell you things like “you can’t do that” or “it will never work”. Just remember, the ones who tell you, you can’t, are the ones who don’t do it themselves! And they have no business interrupting those of us who are.

To live a lifestyle without boundaries, to have freedom, time and money to really enjoy life, to provide for your family is there for anyone who makes the decision to do it. And with the persistence to see it through you will enjoy a lifestyle far beyond your dreams.

Born Agnes Hollins in the North of England, Agyness Deyne worked in a chip shop before becoming one of Britain’s hottest models. Fashion designer Henry Holland grew up with her and remains her best friend, I used to buy my chips from her every Friday, he admits, When we were about 14 she was a bit of a scally, but she always got loads of attention.

A Distinctive Beauty
Tall and androgynous with a shock of platinum blonde hair, Deyne’s distinctive look is reminiscent of Edie Sedgwick. Her position as one the UK’s most exciting models was confirmed by an appearance on the cover of Italian Vogue in November 2006, followed by American Vogue in May 2007 and British Vogue in June 2007.

Britain’s biggest Fashion hope?
Deyne has appeared in high profile advertising campaigns for the likes of Armani, Burberry, Cacharel and Mulberry, appearing as the face of the latter alongside the legendary Karen Elson. She is also the face of Henry Holland’s renowned House of Holland label.

A naturally photogenic girl, she has been photographed by some impressive talent, including Bruce Weber and Mario Testino. Lively and dramatic, she is particularly fond of the more theatrical shows and shoots. The results of which can be seen in her wonderfully outlandish work for both John Galliano and Vivienne Westwood.

Deyne’s striking looks have also proven to be a hit on the catwalk. While Giles Deacon cites her as his favourite model, she also walked most of the major Spring/Summer 2007 catwalks, including those by Luella Bartley, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Zac Posen, Michael Kors and more.

Life off the Catwalk
Effortlessly cool, Deyne’s personal style will also have every fashionista drooling. Playfully punk, she thinks nothing of teaming masculine brogues with a delicate dress and colourful tights. She’s also a fan of leggings, bold prints and eye-catching make up, all of which will be winging their way onto the high street as Deyne cements her reputation as a style icon.

Her boyfriend, Josh Hubbard, plays in Indie band The Paddingtons and Deyne admits that she too would have liked to pursue a career in music. She cites her favourite bands as the Moldy Peaches, X Ray Spex, Jeffrey Lewis and of course, The Paddingtons.

The next Kate Moss?
An ardent tea drinker, she is tipped to be the next Kate Moss and she is certainly becoming the brightest star in British fashion. Christopher Kane, a London-based fashion designer, is just one of the fashion industry insiders who believe Agyness could be the next big thing. He said: Every decade, there is a girl of the moment and, right now, that moment belongs to Agyness.”

However, the guy led his team to a championship, which makes him an official superstar. Plus he plays in a major media market, and his name is awesome.

Of course merchandizing and the sales of the most popular NBA jerseys played a big role.

The Advantages Of Boutique Hotels

fashion12

One of the reasons boutique hotels are so popular is because they directly oppose the accepted hotel normality of hundreds of rooms and bland service. Their refusal to treat guests as anything other than honoured visitors means that they spend time, money and energy developing a hotel where you feel comfortable and at home. This can only really be achieved with low room numbers.

Hotels in this sector have discovered that travellers are willing to pay for accommodation that is different in design and where even full occupancy means they’re not queuing for breakfast or waiting for room service to answer the phones. Instead, fewer rooms means more space and better service, and an increasing number of travellers are taking this option.

Space

Space is important to travellers, particularly those for whom the hotel is an integral part of the experience. Whilst other holiday makers or business travellers simply use a hotel as a base for sleeping and eating, boutique hotel guests want to feel that they can spend the morning drinking coffee and reading in the public areas without feeling like a nuisance, or relax by the pool without worrying about fighting for poolside space with other guests. By taking a definite decision to reduce the number of bedrooms so that each room has more space and by fashioning public areas that guests actually want to use, boutique hotels create a unique atmosphere that appeals to guests.

Design

Boutique hotels are often based in older, traditional buildings where creating larger guest rooms means considerable changes to the internal design of the building. Sympathetic architectural changes can be achieved with careful planning and this allows hotel owners and their designers to maintain and incorporate original features into a more modern, spacious room design. From keeping original windows to fitting the most modern of bathrooms, clever design allows these hotels to provide fewer rooms, whilst at the same time preserving the essential features of the building.

Service

The smaller the number of guests, the better the service can be. This is a concept that’s fully understood by the boutique industry and it strives to ensure that standards of service are exceptional. Any contact that the guest has with a member of staff should be a positive one and, in many cases, members of staff are trained to anticipate guests’ needs, ensuring that they are comfortable asking for anything, including help with activities outside the hotel as well as the facilities within it.

Lowering the number of rooms in a hotel, combined with good design, quality fittings and excellent service all combines to make a hotel unique and that’s what today’s travellers want.
