Norway With Love

How did a slip on shoe get this name? It is probably because they do not take much effort to put them on your feet. There are no laces to tie or buckles to fasten. They do not even have zips or Velcro fastenings. It is as easy as that! However, there is a theory that the Norwegian farmers went cattle loafing and that is why these shoes have that name. The cattle loafing area is a place where the cows gather to await milking. The Norwegian farmers used to wear these shoes when they were milking their cows.

The origin of this type of shoe lies in Norway. When some bright person started producing them in great quantities and shipped them all over Europe, they became very popular. Some American tourists took a shine to them and this footwear founds its way to the States. There a manufacturer started copying them and they were sold in a moccasin style. They copied the design from photographs in their possession.

They became very popular with university students who started customizing them and put pennies in the sleeve. They became known as the penny variety of this design. These shoes are very often tasselled, but there is one design, called the Venetian, that has no adornments at all and is just a plain simple shoe which is comfortable and can be worn with any kind of garment.

These days when fashion is much more relaxed, these shoes can be worn with almost every outfit. They may even be worn to formal occasions. However, they are best worn when teamed up with more casual style outfits.

Originally most shoes were mostly black or brown. In our modern times any colour is available in the marketplace and if one looks on the internet the colour possibilities are endless. To get some idea of what you might want to buy, the internet is ideal for browsing. If a high street shop is the preferred outlet for shopping, then at least one gets an idea of what is available.

Internet shopping has, however, become incredibly easy. When a pair of shoes is found, they can be bought by simply giving your credit card details. The shoes will be dispatched to you immediately upon the clearing of the card details. If the purchase does not meet the approval when received by the recipient, they can be returned for a full refund, provided they are in the same condition as when they arrived.

Cufflinks for Women

Cufflink Trends

Before we discuss what cufflinks say about their wearers, it is a good idea to look at current trends in cufflinks for men and women. Cufflinks are often associated with men. For years men have used cufflinks to add a touch of personal style to their business suits, tuxedos and dress shirts. Fortunately, the ever-changing trends in fashion have made beautiful cufflinks for women the norm instead of the exception. Thanks to a leading group of shirt designers, women can now enjoy the same fine detailing that men have taken for granted for years.

Cufflinks for ladies are now worn by career women in corporate offices and with relaxed shirting on the weekends. Cufflinks also make regular appearances on the red carpet in Hollywood with high profile actors such as Dianne Keaton showing the punch of a power suit with matching cufflinks, to boot.

Styling for women

For those who think that cufflinks are too masculine to be worn by women, think again. There are literally thousands of designs to choose from ranging from the bold and bright to the ultra-feminine. Silk knots are also a fashionable option for women, available in both block colours and fun multi-colour combinations. However, it’s always hard to go past classic silver.

Many women opt for classic silver cufflinks with a shiny finish. Look for cufflinks made from rhodium; these are much more durable than cufflinks made from other metals. Again, there are many designs to choose from but a simple pair of silver cufflinks is a must-have for every woman’s accessory collection. They’ll take you from day to night seamlessly and add a touch of sophistication to any outfit.

Reflecting Your Personality

Yes! Just like the rest of your outfit from your shoes and clothes to your jewellery and handbag, your cufflinks are a personal expression of your style, your mood and your passions. For example…

Silk Knots indicate a softness and femininity as they mimic small flowers on your sleeves. Depending on your choice of colour, your choice of silk knots can indicate your mood for the day. Pink and purple, suggests fun and frivolity whilst black and white might suggest a more serious approach to the day.

Novelty Cufflinks allow you to inject fun into an otherwise formal outfit like a business suit. Many women love to add a personal touch to a corporate outfit that hints at their interests and passions outside of the workplace. Surfboard cufflinks are popular for women who love the beach, dog and bone cufflinks show a love for pets and soccer cufflinks hint at your love of the sport.

Remember Before Buying a Bridal Corset

The best way to do things right is to choose your bridal gown first and then choose a bridal corset that blends and fits like a glove with your bridal wear. The shape and the cut of the gown will help you decide on the type of corset you need for the occasion. For instance, if the wedding gown is strapless, your bridal corset will be shaped differently to suit the dress without making the obvious known to others.

If you want to look svelte and slim on your wedding day, a well fitting bra would figure high in the scheme of things. A wrong sized bra is recipe for certain disaster and could end up making you look bulkier than your real figure. The right sized bra with the perfect bridal corset can be a stunning combination.

You must make a decision on buying a hose which can go well with a bridal corset for some body types. You can decide on pantyhose if your shoe is a closed toe type. For shoes with open toe style, topless pantyhose would do fine. According to bridal dress stylists it is an important factor and can add to the comfort and beauty of your bridal corset.

Colour is an important factor while choosing a bridal corset. They are available in various shades but for a wedding gown, nothing looks more beautiful than a white corset. However, you must remember to choose a corset that matches your complexion and body type and other factors as discussed earlier.

Going online with the purchase of your bridal corset is a sensible thing to do because of the huge varieties you can browse through conveniently. Also, buying online is cheaper than buying through a conventional fashion store.

Fashionable Sports Wear

Perhaps both reasons hold, but it has led to something of a black hole in the world of style, and there could be a simple way of fixing it for women how want to look sporty: retro sportswear. You don’t have to go through the mystifying aisles of high street sports megastores to find these garments; and if you did you’ll rarely find anything flattering unless you are a teenager still After all, modern sportswear is characterised by a flashy garishness that seldom evokes the subtle needs of a well put together ensemble. You’ll be bombarded by “scientific” claims about the properties of the material. And more often than not, the brand itself will be shouting out from the design.

If all that jazzy new sportswear leaves you cold then perhaps the best place to assemble your sporty look is at your local vintage clothing shop They are found in many towns and cities now (usually just off the high street in the trendy districts), and there are some great internet retailers stocking vintage wear, too. You will find sportswear collections that relate to a time when the clothing was less important than the players wearing it, when branding and product manufacturers were a quiet add-on whisper rather than a loud shout. But that’s not to say styling wasn’t important and looking good was a key consideration. Performing in public still comes with a desire to look good, just as much then as it is today.

It’s odd though, so why do they treat sports wear differently now? Perhaps the reason is that men don’t worry too much about variety in their wardrobe, while women like to wear different styles more regularly. Or is it a body shape thing, because unless the woman has a perfect figure, sports wear can simply highlight the areas they don’t want highlighting.

This is where vintage fashion stores come to the rescue. Most of these stores stock a varied range of t-shirts, but also complementing jackets, footwear of various styles and accessories too, such as sports bags. Who doesn’t remember the classic three strip shoulder bag, seen carrying the books of almost every teenage male in the 1970s. Retro sports wear invokes memories of the era and the stars of the day rather than just the brand. The Borgs and McEnroes of the tennis courts not to mention Virginia Wade, the Greg Normans of the golf course, the Kevin Keegans of the football pitch, they were all used by sports clothing brands to boost the popularity of their products. Female sports icons came along in greater numbers in the 1980s and that’s when the women of the world began to sit up and notice that sports wear could find a place in their wardrobes.
