Fashion Blunders

• We all know wearing clothes that are not appropriate to our age can be one of the big if not, the biggest fashion faux pas. Shopping in the kids section isn't cute. Know who you are, wear the clothes meant for your age and be proud of it.

• Yes, white is cool but there's something else. While wearing white tops or bottoms make sure you wear a flesh color underwear. Wearing white will literally shine through making your ....err you know what, all the more obvious.

• It's understood that a great pair of trousers is hot but with the belly and backside hanging out...well, not too appealing. Shapers are here to help you ! Get the one piece corset panties that manage bellies and hips. For great support, choose ones which provide maximum coverage.

• Wearing all accessories - scarves, earrings, belts, chains, shoes, handbags, hair bands, bangles, watches -you name it and it's dazzling there! Do remember, it's a big fashion faux pas.

Keep up a clear balance with the accessories. Use them to augment your look. It's always great to wear one key piece that stands out rather than numerous accessories at one go.

• The red shoes matches with the red handbag which matches with the red top which matches which the red earrings which matches with the red watch... aha! Well, doesn't it seem a little eerie? It's about putting pieces intelligently together to create an interesting look. Combine your attire and accessories to reflect a personal style that's entirely your own.

• Low-rise pants are trendy, hot and super cool. But not so low to leave nothing to imagination. As the name suggests, underwear however appealing should remain under.

Make use of belts to hold your pants in place and wear low -rise underwear that will not stick out.

• Visible panty lining isn't cool. Well, there are special seam free underwear with compressed edges and high cut legs. Thongs and boy -short styles work well for a smooth silhouette. Likewise to create a neat silhouette on the top , it's advisable to go for padded bras or nipple stick-ons that will overcome any such embarrassments.

Fashion Week History

Fashion Week New York, an annual Fall event, is a traditional gathering that dates back to World War II.

Fashion Week, once called Press Week, first took place in New York City in 1943. With Fashion Week typically taking place in Paris France and due to the war, fashion insiders were unable to travel into the country and see the latest and greatest in trends. This is when Eleanor Lambert stepped up and organized a fashion week within the United States and with that put American fashion into the spotlight.  Her idea of Fashion Week in America continued and was held in different locations such as hotels or lofts. In 1994, the event moved to Bryant Park, behind the New York Public Library, where it remained until this year. As of next year, it will again be relocated to the Lincoln Center.

Around the world there are four major fashion weeks.

They take place in the same order each year so that fashion devotees can attend each of them, if they wish. The "Big Four" are located in New York, London, Milan and Paris. The event is held twice a year, one in Fall/Winter (February) and the other in Spring/Summer (September).  Each event lasts one week and allows fashion designers, brands and ‘houses' to display their latest collections. These collections are shown off through runway shows and allows buyers to get an inside glance at the latest trends.

Fashion shows of course occurred in America before Lambert's Fashion Week in New York City. Large department stores were hosting fashion events for middle-class American women, featuring the latest styles being sold in their stores. Sometimes these events were called ‘fashion parades.' The parades had a theme and was accompanied by a commentator.

Today, attending an event like New York Fashion week can only be done if you are invited. Invitations are often limited to buyers, fashion magazine editors, fashion magazine journalists, models, celebrities and such.

But not to worry, Fashion Week and technology have joined together and now Fashion Week is being shown via satellite and through the Internet. This expansion in technology has saved designers thousands of dollars in travel costs. In addition, with an Internet presence, some designers are marketing their work exclusively online. Applications for iPhones have even been created to help showcase designs and Fashion Week.

Designers who are selling exclusively online include Normal Kamali and the Polo Ralph Lauren Rubgy brand. Because of the technological changes, in 2009 runway models could be seen carrying mini notebooks rather than handbags.

Another trend seen during fall 2009 Fashion Week was that items were designed and shown for both fall and spring. An example was a bold colored dress that could be worn over a turtleneck in the winter and as a stand alone in the spring. There were also convertible blazers by Vera Wang and Karen Walker.

What will Fashion Week of 2011 demonstrate? With the recession and technology combined, it is hard to tell.

Daily Intake Values - Calcium Supplements

So, a lot of people are obviously into supplements and vitamins of all kinds. But there are a few things that people don't realize about supplements, and in particular Calcium supplements. For one, almost everybody needs more calcium; it's kind of like fiber in which almost nobody takes in as much fiber as they should. And so, if you're not drinking a few glasses of milk a day, you're likely not getting the kind of calcium intakes and volumes of the vitamin that you should be taking in. And there are all sorts of consequences to not taking in enough calcium. Of course, there's the obvious. The obvious reason that most people take Calcium supplements is because they're worried about their bones.

Young people worry about not getting enough calcium because they're worried about what their bones (or the health of their bones) will be like in their later years.

And that's a good concern to have, because most people in their middle age tend to have issues, in some form or fashion, with their bones. Just as joints will begin to wear down, so too will bones. And the only way to actually solve any of this is to prevent these issues from flaring up to begin with. That's where a good multivitamin comes into play. If you do take a good multivitamin pill, it will carry most of what you need, and then some. You'll have all of the vitamins, of course, but you'll also get good minerals and other nutrients from these pills as well. Now, it's true that these pills do contain some version of vitamin D supplements, but that isn't to say that all of these vitamins and minerals are actually absorbed in quite the same way as if they'd been packaged in a natural orange, or a stick of celery (just as examples). In order to really get a handle on what it is your body needs, you should actually get tested.

You can get these biological tests done for yourself that will basically grade you for how complete you are in terms of the nutrients and vitamins that you need. Now, this brings up an important point. Everybody has different requirements in terms of calcium supplements. This is something that actually isn't accommodated for, by the conventional model of distributing pills. Calcium is absorbed, whether or not you need it. It's unlike other vitamins and minerals, such as the Vitamin C in ascorbic acid (wherein that vitamin stops being absorbed at a certain volume and quantity). So, you see, you may want to go with lower quantity and potency Calcium supplements, so that you can better adjust and manipulate your dosing. That's something that more people should consider doing.
