Denim Fashion

Fashion has been giving us a lot of throwback styles lately. We saw a surge in ‘70s style last year with the billowy silhouettes and vintage fabrics that are still holding strong on the trends map. The ‘70s weren’t the only decade to make a big fashion comeback. Enter the ‘90s, which brought us droves of flannel, chokers galore, and a modern look at denim on denim–something we never thought could be revived from the archives, but now ever top model is sporting!

Which brings me to today’s post: a feature on denim fashion that’s no longer an option for fashion enthusiasts, but a must. Denim has overtaken our wardrobes and made us fall in love all over again. Not only are we wearing denim jeans, but we’re wearing denim tops, dresses, and even headwear. There is no denying the denim trend, and below I’ll go over some of the best ways to wear denim this season. You’ll want to take notes.

New York Fashion Week Must Haves

New York Fashion Week is here! Time to break out those heels, designer purses and cameras for an amazing week full of fashion. If you happen to see me during fashion week, I carry around a big purse. I have learned during  previous fashion weeks it is necessary to bring plenty of supplies. Because in the end, feet will hurt and nail polish will chip, and there won’t be much time to rest. These tiny accessories that you can throw into your bag will save you in the end!

New York Fashion Week Must Haves:

  1. Compeed! My best friend when it comes to heel protection. It lasts all day no and prevents blisters from wearing high heals.
  2. Bandaids. just in case you forgot Compeed, take a few bandaids for any other trouble areas shoes may cause.
  3. Nail polish remover wipes. The thing that bugs me more than no nail polish is chipped nail polish. I love these individual wipes that really do the trick.
  4. Bobby pins. It is amazing how you can easily transform your hair with a quick pin or two. Also helps keep flyaway strands in place.
  5. The number for closest beauty bar. There are plenty of stations and lounges around the city that will do touch up and hairdo for free. TRESemmé is one that will help a girl out with a quick hairdo. Just book an appointment before heading in.
  6. Chargers. Plenty of chargers for your phone and camera. Especially when you know it will be a long day.
  7. Change of shoes. Nothing feels better than when the last event ends and you can change into comfy shoes.
  8. Cards. Don’t forget to bring business cards for all the people you’ll meet.

The History of Eternity Rings

Technically speaking, eternity rings have been around since 2000 B.C. in Egypt. The Egyptians felt that not even death could stop the bond of marriage so they invented a wedding ceremony as way of tying a union between two people. Egyptian archaeologists found rings carved from bones with beads or gems that went all around them. This was the very first eternity ring.

Since the first eternity ring, they’ve symbolized an ever-lasting love speaking to the couple’s relationship and commitment. They’ve become more popular largely due to the intricate design as well as their meaning.

Many couples believe each stone signifies a milestone in their relationship, from their engagement to buying their first house together to having their first child. More diamonds and gems the merrier!
