    Female TV Characters with the Best Style

    Female TV Characters with the Best Style

    When it comes to a character on a TV show or movie, there are many ways they express to us who they are. Obvious ways being dialogue, actions, and who they surround themselves with, but my favorite as someone who loves fashion is the way the characters dress. Clothing is a key component of world building and character building, whether the character only wears hoodies or plaid skirts. Of course, as someone who is attracted to a certain aesthetic, the characters with the best clothing are usually women for me who don't just shop at Forever 21. To me, the TV shows that I find have the best dressed female characters are the ones that don't realistically dress their characters. Meaning, in the show, the girl who lives in a middle-class household doesn't dress like she has money, but a stylist who dresses her every morning. As a TV fanatic, I've compiled a list of the best dressed females on the screen who will surely give you outfit inspiration or ideas to make a Pinterest board.

    'The Tudors' Costumes Part 1

    'The Tudors' Costumes Part 1

    Over the years, I have watched the Showtime series The Tudors many, many times. I have learned one thing while watching the series for many times, and that is that the fans of this show and of history have paid very close attention to the costuming. Some love it, some hate it, and some are neutral. What many people do not realize about a show, a movie, or play, is that just like the script and scenery, the costumes designed are just as important in telling a story. This is the start of a series of posts about how I interpret the costumes story telling of each of Henry VIII's wives from the show The Tudors.

    Why You Need Platform Sneakers in Your Wardrobe

    Sneakers or Shoes—What You Wearing

    Sneakers or Shoes—What You Wearing

    Sneakers have become a million dollar business. It is not just the big companies, such as Nike and Under Armour, that are making money. Kids are making money by reselling their sneakers and even adding drawings and other items to sneakers to make them stand out in the crowd. I was recently introduced to Stock X, a sneaker website where you can buy or auction your sneakers. It is amazing when you realize that sneakers have separated themselves from shoes in the footwear industry. There are all types of people that wear sneakers, from the great-grandmother to the sports star. There are all kinds of sneakers for different needs, such as cross trainers, walking, sneakers that can track your steps and calories, and Ecco. There are some sneakers that can cost a bundle of hundreds. That’s insane. Sneakers have seemed to replaced shoes for dressing up an outfit for occasions. People wear sneakers to weddings, funerals, and anywhere else they might go. There is a certain comfort to sneakers that you just can't get from shoes. Shoes, whatever happened to shoes? I think the most famous person was Imelda Marcos, who was the First Lady of the Philippines. When she fled her country, over a thousand pairs of shoes were allegedly found in her closet. That’s a lot of shoes! If you grew up in the 60s or 70s, you wore shoes to occasions such as Christmas, church, and Easter. These shoes were usually patent leather. There were stores like Pay Less that sold shoes off a rack. Pay Less was very reasonable when you were poor. There were a lot of shoe stores that used the Pay Less model of sales to get people into the stores. It was less formal and more customer open. This model let people come in and get their shoes off a rack and try them on at their leisure. I think that’s when the realization arose that the shoe industry was in trouble. Sneakers were making their move slowly into being a force in the footwear industry. I grew up loving sneakers. When I was being shipped overseas to Germany in the late 70s, I took a suitcase with just sneakers in it. The airline consequently lost my suitcase and I was never to see those sneakers again. Now, there are all sorts of sports figures that endorse sneakers that sell for big money. There is a connection between a sports figure and his/her sneaker in that we, the customers, reason that by buying a certain sneaker, we are all for that figure. Sneakers represent a style of cool relaxation. I’m a senior now, but I still love my sneakers; maybe not for the cool and relaxed effect, but just for comfort. I very seldom wear shoes now that I’m not working, but even to go to work I wore my sneakers and changed into shoes when I got to work. Shoes still serve a purpose, such as when you want to go on a date. There is something about sneakers that doesn’t seem right on a first date, but that too, I feel, is changing. It takes a lot of work to keep sneakers in pristine condition. When I washed my white Nike Air Max, I took the shoe laces out of the sneaker and put them in an old pillowcase. I washed them with borax and detergent and turned on the washing machine and hoped for the best. I was quite surprised at the end of the cycle, when I took them out of the pillowcase, they were white, like new white. My grandson told me to use an old toothbrush to clean them with, but I thought that was too much work. That’s when I decided to try the pillowcase method, and for me it worked. You can take away my shoes, but please leave my sneakers alone!

    Forget #CAMP of the Met Gala...

    While we are all tripping over ourselves with a moderately disappointing Met Gala Ball hosted by the esteemed Anna Wintour each year, other gala's of fashion are worth the attention, too. Don't get me wrong, I live for the Met event every year and I am always most fascinated with who is ACTUALLY ON THEME and what amazing looks they come up with. But this isn't the only high fashion event that deserves our attention. Award show red carpets have lost their thrill and since the passing of Joan Rivers on the counsel of Fashion Police, I just haven't been too invested.

    Cultural Appropriation?

    Cultural Appropriation?

    Hey lovelies, here's a topic that needs to be discussed; cultural appropriation. What is cultural appropriation? When does it happen? Why does it happen? Well here is a simple answer to those simple questions—some people are just unoriginal. There is another side when it comes to cultural appropriation, the part where there is miscommunication involved. In fashion we see a lot of cultural appropriation going on, for example girls wearing headdresses to events like Coachella, but what does this symbolize other than free spirits… cultural appropriation. In mass media, there have been many stereotypes made, for example, African Americans wearing tribal clothing, or Japanese wearing their traditional kimonos. However that is not the case, fashion has evolved, and so has the use of cultural appropriation. Fashion in different cultures has been stereotyped through mass media. It tends to give us a misunderstanding of what one wears when it comes to their own cultural and traditional recognition. There has been a limited worldview opinion on how a simple fashion statement could lead to cultural appropriation. However attitudes are changing in the fashion community, many are realizing that it’s not okay to copy someone's traditional clothing. When newcomers arrive in Canada or America, they don’t know about the type of clothes they have to wear in order to fit in. For example, an Indian woman would end up wearing their typical salwar kameez or sari rather than jeans and a typical t-shirt. This could lead to an act of mocking, because Canadians are not used to seeing people wear a sari. Mass media promotes cultural appropriation through movies, television shows, commercials, ads, etc...

    Are Influencers Effective Enough to Provide Value to Businesses and the Social Community?

    The ways businesses reach to customers have changed with the fast-growing Internet tools over the years. Now, large businesses and new startups adopt another way to grow and expand through influencers, the modern channel of digital advertising. Society is more engaged than ever before on the Internet, and spends most of the time connected to their social media with apps like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or Snapchat; just to name the top ones, where it’s possible to stay updated with the latest trends, unlimited information and events of the world. And here business owners use influencers who can provide high engagement rates to their websites and increase sales. It’s obvious that social media has been displacing the traditional advertising tools. Even at its early stages, the influencers industry reports yearly earnings of nearly two billion dollars in 2018, and it’s expected to double in the oncoming years.

    Make Sure You Look for These Things While Shopping for Shirts

    Make Sure You Look for These Things While Shopping for Shirts

    The way big vendors keep rates down is by compromising quality. Either it is by using reduced materials, paying low salaries or avoiding steps of the procedure. Occasionally, brands use a couple of these tactics. This results in clothes that, while inexpensive, look like they are never furnished after just one wash. If you long for quality then you are most likely going to earn that by paying. High-end fabrics and craftsmanship require expenses. Some fabric experts advise that clothes should be affluent enough that they sting a little. With that in mind, just because a shirt is lavish, it does not essentially mean that it is going to live forever. Worth is no assurance of quality. Now and then, the most expensive product in a shop is merely a brand name. Altogether, there are enterprises out there that offer good-quality for a squat price. So here is your guide to buying quality shirts and things that you shouldn’t disregard while shopping for shirts.
