Wearing Purple

The trick, however, is in the manner you choose the other accessories and how you combine your purple with other colors depending on the shade of purple you decide to wear. Other bright colors are a big no-no with purple. Pinks, oranges and red are color which you should not even give a single glance to while deciding to wear something purple.

If you are in the mood to wear a bright shade of purple, then you should consider dark accessories or a black coat to go along. A black skirt / trouser with a light purple top will make you look like royalty. Dark purple, on the other hand, should be teamed with light neutral colors like beige, cream and off-white. If you don’t want to be ousted by your friends and colleagues in a social gathering couple purple only with blacks, brown, cream, beige, white or on the …

Care for Silver Jewelry

One of the first rules of keeping your silver jewelry shining, is to store it properly in acid-free paper, or cloth especially for that purpose. Put them in a drawer or other safe place, that is away from exposure to wood or other types of smoke.

It is best to keep jewelry polished, instead of trying to play “catch up” when it has become heavily tarnished. But there are a number of ways to deal with the darkening color.

There are many home solutions, such as using white toothpaste and a soft brush. However, some jewelers point out that silver is not tooth enamel, and can’t withstand the abrasive content. Although on things like chains, it’s unlikely you would see any resulting scratches.

Commercial solutions do work, but depending on the nature of your jewelry (e.g. whether it contains gemstones or pearls), you may not be able to submerge it …

Alpinestars Boots

I was a bit discouraged after I saw the price of a pair of Alpinestars boots cost. In fact, the newest Tech 10 model would cost me almost an entire month’s salary. The Tech 6 and the other older models were still pretty pricey compared to other brands.

Anyway, I decide to try a pair on. I couldn’t believe how well they fit and how comfortable they were right out of the box. I asked the clerk at the store if I could get a discount or if there were any sales coming up. However, he said that there’s so much demand for them at any price so they rarely put Alpinestars boots on sale.

I decided to try looking up some motocross gear websites just to get a quick price comparison as soon as I got back home. Fortunately, found several sites that sell Alpinestars boots for far less …

Frye Boots

The oldest shoe company under continuous operation in the United States, Frye boot company was founded in the mid 19th century. The founder, John Frye was actually a shoemaker that had immigrated to the United States from England. He ran the Frye boot company for 50 years before his family took over upon his death.

The Frye boots themselves have a great history. During the Civil War, many of the soldiers on both sides wore them. They were also on the feet of soldiers in the Spanish-American war as well as Rough Riders led by Teddy Roosevelt. Many pioneers heading west for a better life during the late 1800’s wore Frye boots as well.

Today, Frye boots are still known for quality. Their Harness Boots have a wonderful history in themselves. In 1938, the grandson of Frye boot’s founder took a trip to Washington D.C. There, he bet a Naval …

Handcrafted Bracelets

A handcrafted bracelet is when an artisan personally picks out the beads and colors him/herself. And then decides on a design, stringing material, and what kind of impression this piece of jewelry should make. There really is a lot that goes into the thought process.

I can tell you that I personally create all of my bracelets…. I take a whole evening, or even days to create a special piece. In my jewelry box–you can expect to see that not one design is exactly the same. I get so many compliments on my work that they ask me–where did you buy that?…. (of course the ones who know me well know that I have made it myself, and compliment me on my artwork)–but for those who don’t know me, they will just sigh in amazement that it seems almost impossible to create..

So when I say a handcrafted bracelet is …

Gaucho Clothes

The alpargatas, which is a rope sole and canvas shoe. The bombachas de campo, very strong pure cotton trousers and the boina hat. These elements all have a European origin and they started to be worn by the gaucho around the middle of the 19th century.

The alpargatas in English known as espadrilles were originally made with black canvas but are now produced with a wide range of colours and patterns; some have rubber sole as well.

The bombachas de campo are made in different colours, styles and designs but the most popular colours are still the traditional: khaki, black, white, dark blue and dark green. These trousers are immediately identifiable because of the button they have at the ankle which is used to narrow them.

The very fashionable gaucho pants similar to the capri pants are different because of this reason, they do not go down to the ankle …

About Low-rise Jeans

Rises in jeans (the distance from the crotch to the waistband) range from the high-waisted to the superlow-rise. The lastest in jeans fashion are the low-rise jeans. These have a deliberately low-cut waist intended to sit low on, or below, the hips. Also known as lowcut jeans, hipsters, hip-huggers and lowriders, they are intentionally cut lower on the waist, thus covering less body on front (the belly) and the back. Usually these jeans sit at least three inches lower than the belly button.

The “rise” of jeans is determined by the distance between the crotch and the waist and is usually around 10 inches on the regular conventional pants. In contrast, lowrise jeans typically have a rise of about 6 inches. Several brandmanufacturers also highlight the feature by altering the rise of the zipper. They create pants with zippers far shorter than regular pants, usually between 2 and 3 inches, …
