Versatility of Baseball Caps

Since the late 1800s, baseball has been among the most popular sports in America. Dubbed “America’s favorite pastime”, it has become a tradition in many families to go out to see their favorite team several times during the summer months. One of the things that adds to the fun of this popular summer outing is dressing up the family in the local team’s colors, such as wearing their jersey and putting on their hat.

Return Of The Hippie

Who were the Hippies

Hippies were a part of a youth movement, composed of the younger generation and teenagers between the ages of 15 and 25. These youngsters or hippies rebelled and criticized middle-class values, embraced elements of non-Judeo-Christian religions, opposed the Vietnam War, promoted sexual liberation, and created intentional communities, often considering their tribe as a new religious movement. Hippies favored “peace, love, and personal freedom over political and social orthodoxy.

The hippies fashion was embraced by the youth and even seniors across the continents, in the 1960s. The focus of the decade and years later was on the vibrancy of the apparel and accessories and not on what others thought about a particular appearance. People, generally, sported clothes that they felt expressed themselves and their individualism and not for sake of pleasing the regular line of fashion. The empowering rock music and world-wide protests against social stigmas like apartheid churned out the blue jeans and denim. It was the era of casual attire; an age when people felt that drug addiction was okay to experiment with. The hippies, as they were commonly described by the ‘prim and proper’ and socially answerable citizens, designed a

Coloured Contact Lens

Coloured contacts are worn for a variety of reasons. As a fashions accessory, they are worn to compliment a fancy dress outfit. These usually go down well at Halloween dressing up that vampire suit or witches costume. They are used frequently in the theatre or in movies giving special effects to the local villain or character. Coloured lenses are also just fun to wear out to your nightclub to give a different look. As long as they are looked after properly and kept clean they are safe to wear and will not affect your eyes or vision at all.

Coloured contact lenses work best with people with naturally dark eyes. Depending on what look you are going for you can chose from three different types of lens. The first is enhancement lenses. These just give a gentle tint to your natural colour rather than completely changing it. It is not particularly good on dark eyes as the tint blends in with the true colour almost like trying to put a water colour wash on an oil painting.

If you wish to mask your natural eye then you want to go for an opaque lens. They are

Cool With Ladies Clothing

The chillier season is perfect for neutral and natural colors such as black, white, gray and various shades of brown. You can find long shirts with ornate prints as well as other casual gear such as long sleeve shirts.

Shop During The Sale

I’ve been guilty of being talked into buying something that wasn’t really ‘me’ or did not represent my style which I’ve later regretted, thanks to the pushy salesperson. Once I set foot through the doors of a shop, I can sense straight away if I am going to fall in love with something or not. It’s instinct. A classic example of my impulse purchases is driving to a shopping centre to get some ‘milk’ but at the back of my mind, I have a hidden agenda.

I end up going home with a pair of shoes, a clutch and a top on sale (minus the milk).

Shops have a subtle way of seducing innocent shoppers to spend more and stay longer. The upbeat or mellow music, the dark lighting, the scent, those wonderful mirrors that can make you look longer and slimmer. Fashion mistakes happen all the time. Wrong purchases are bought everyday. Time and time again I have vowed to stick to a written list which almost always disappears every time I head out. And with so many clearance sales, it’s so easy to be tempted and succumb to the reduced prices.
