Those Linen Pants

The first things we need to know are that these pants are made to be mostly casual, and that pure linen wrinkles very easily. The fabric also lends itself well to a few major clothing types. However, Linen pants come in two primary variations: belted and drawstring.

Belted pants look like any other slacks, though they’re often found in lighter, kitschier colors which are suited for a comfortable afternoon on the golf course or spending the afternoon shopping.

Drawstring linen pants look and feel much the same as their belted cousin, but with the added advantage of having a simple, built-in drawstring for fastening (and of course comfort). These pants have been pretty stylish since before 2000, and are arguably … Read the rest

Buying High Quality Jewelry

  • Determining your metal. Most metals are mixed with others to increase durability. Take gold for example. If you are buying something that is 24 karat gold, that means it is 100% gold. However, gold is an extremely soft metal and is often mixed with other metals to make it more durable. The mixing of metals can also make the item of jewelry more affordable. Precious metals like platinum can be very expensive and mixing it with another metal can bring the cost down without influencing the quality of the piece. Make sure to ask the jeweler if the metal has been mixed with anything. This is especially important if you have allergies to any specific types of metal.

Buying Kids Sunglasses

    • Frames for kids sunglasses should neither be too tight or too loose. Go for frames made of materials that don’t slide easily from the child’s face for example rubber, which fits closely yet still very comfortable for the kid.
    • Since children are often playing and running around,go for sunglasses with frames that don’t break very easily. Nylon frames can bend and go back to their original position without breaking and can withstand more impact compared to metal frames.
    • Fit the sunglasses on to the child’s face and check to see that they cover the whole eye area and if possible a bit of their cheeks and forehead. This will ensure maximum UV protection even if the kid is bending at

Knowing what looks good and pursuing items that suit you is a life-enhancing and positive process. One of the joys of shopping for vintage is the elusive element of surprise. Discovering a vintage evening dress that fits well always feels far more rewarding than walking into a conventional store and pulling something straight off the rail that is identical to the one next to it. The vintage shopping experience is even more rewarding when you have a vague idea of what you are looking for. Cementing a … Read the rest

Diffuser for Hair

These gently massage your hair while you dry and help to lift and separate your hair to give it extra volume. The second kind is the standard diffuser which has various holes for the airflow and requires that you scrunch your hair with your fingers while you dry. The third kind is made out of an elastic material that cuts back on the power of the airflow to gently heat your hair without disturbing your natural curls or waves.
