Design Your Own T-Shirt  

Posted by F.R.I.S

So you've had some great ideas for custom t-shirts floating around in your head for a while and now you want to turn them into reality. What are your first steps to take and how can you get your finished product on your back or on the market as quickly and expediently as possible?

Possible Design Adjustments
If you are lucky, your designs and the color schemes in them will coordinate beautifully on a finished t-shirt but more often then not you will have to make some type of adjustments. This all has to do with the types of ink that are used and just how your t-shit is going to be printed out.

Light Colors on Dark Fabric
For instance, light colors on a dark fabric present their own particular problems that has to do with coverage. That is that a light color on a dark shirt is not going to be as vibrant as you might have in mind. That is unless you have your custom t-shirt silk screened with a thick rubbery type of colorant.

Digital Printing
For digital printing, which is the fastest and cheapest method, you are going to have to think light colored fabrics. This is because the type of dye that digital t-shirt printers use is thin, so it will work in the ink jets hence, it it simply wont cover a dark fabric as well.

Silk Screening
If you are determined to go with light colors over dark fabric, then you are going to have to go with silk screening, which means higher expense and a minimum order requirement. Also, with silk screening the more colors that you use in your design scheme, the more it is going to cost you, because each color requires a separate frame to be made and a separate pass with the ink.

Prom Dress Disaster  

Posted by F.R.I.S

If you are a woman, you would understand when I say "The Dress have the Power to make or break". Every significant event in a woman's life is marked by the dress that went along with it. Woman around the world have closets full of these dresses they just cannot part with.

The Prom! Probably one of the occasions in a woman's life where the dress must be perfect. It's an event that's enough to send many a teenage girl into alternating bouts of excited raptures and blind panic, with the latter owing to the pressure of doing everything - from picking the most divine of party dresses, to settling on one of a myriad of prom hairstyles - right. In fact, for some, deciding on a prom dress is a lot more stressful than making it to graduation!

Well, if you're already starting to panic about prom night this early, fear not. Take heed of the following nifty tips, and you might just find your stress levels alleviated considerably:

  • Be early. Start shopping early, do not wait until the last moment, you know something will happen sooner or later, so have some ideas ready before the occasion presents itself. The prom is no different. By the time prom season rolls around, girls find themselves panic buying and drowning in a sea of prom dresses. It's always best to avoid the rush. Start looking around for a prom dress at least 4 months before the event, take your sweet time, and don't settle for the first half-decent frock you can find.
  • Be inspired. With so many styles available and even more trends that come and go, deciding on a prom dress can be harder than picking a college; hence, why you should look for inspiration wherever you can find it. Of course, celebrity-inspired designer dresses are the most logical choice, so keep an eye out for red carpet events in magazine spreads, fashion websites, and the entertainment channels on TV. Who knows? You might find yourself donning a glamour dress in the style of Kate Middleton, or a Carrie Bradshaw-ish Sex and the City style number come prom night.
  • Be open-minded. Just because you don't like how a dress looks on the mannequin or a hanger, doesn't mean it's not the dress for you. When shopping for prom dresses, it's always best to keep an open mind. Try on the dresses that you like and a few of the ones that you don't. You might be pleasantly surprised to find that a seemingly forlorn-looking frock on a hanger looks absolutely divine on you.
  • Be realistic. Be aware that not everybody is built like Halle Berry, so do take stock of your figure before you choose a prom dress. You have to accept that you can't dress in the style of Vanessa Williams if you're about 3 feet tall, nor will you look good in a chiffon dress with flower embellishment if you have bigger thighs and arms. You might be partial to cocktail dresses, but you may look better in full-length pageant dresses (or vice versa), so don't be stubborn. Take your size and shape into consideration, if you do, you can't go wrong.
  • Be different. Ignore the trends. Come Prom night, many girls just copy their summer dresses. Well, unless you're hell bent on being another pea from the pod, you obviously want to don a prom dress that you can be proud of calling your own and yours alone. With that in mind, why not go beyond the conventional prom dress and opt for something more adventurous, like a checkered black and white party dress, for instance? Better yet, why not hire a seamstress who can make a one-of-a-kind gown for you? Your dress will have you written in every seam, every section and every color. If that is not enough, you know it will fit you perfectly.

Prom dress shopping is an art, an exercise in very precise shopping skills. But with sheer focus, a clear perspective, and a fabulous sense of style, it's an exercise that's made easier - not a bad preparation for the real world at all!

Why Do Women Love Shoes  

Posted by F.R.I.S

Why do girls like shoes so much? Simply because Shoes are hot.The hottest ones a girl can buy are the high heels, well so I've been told! Shoes are no longer something a girl simply wears on their feet but a passion, a hobby, one's personal statement, a source of authority, sexual independence and joy. They're a constant obsession in pop culture, endlessly talked about and fetishized in television, movies, song lyrics, and seem to be worn without fail by glamorous celebrities no matter the occasion. The most notorious of the shoe loving pop culture media is of the smash HBO series Sex in the City, in which shoes are one of its main themes.

The truth is women are in love with shoes. Here's why:

  • Variety - women simply cannot wear the same shoe every day. They need change and shoes need to match what they are wearing and they need to match their activities and lifestyle.
  • Style - Many styles for different occasions when girls want to look good. When they want to look hot, the sexy heels shoes. Also when they want to look comfortable.
  • A Good Deal -Women are born to shop for shoes. It is a true skill and art. No true Women can turn down a good deal on a pair of sexy heels shoes. It is almost impossible for a true girl to resist a half price pair of high heels.
  • Comfort - The sexy heels vs the flats. Sexy heels look hot but a problem is that ten years down the line they will have no toes left so most women alternate between sexy heels shoes and flats. Therefore more shoes in the closet!
  • Durability - Well made women's shoes can last a lifetime. This is especially true if you do not wear them every day. As a result of this all the shoes build up the closet till it explodes.
  • Trendy - Unlike that hot pink leather skirt the girls partied in back in the day, the sexy heels shoes that they may have worn with it are still in fashion. In fact, Flashdance plastic jelly shoes have made a huge comeback. Therefore more shoes to buy.
  • Stability - Women grow but their shoe size doesn't.
  • Options - "Should I wear my 5 inch Marc Jacobs sexy heels shoes, Gucci black suede 'Pop Bamboo' ankle boots today, or my 2 inch Gucci loafers?" It's a woman's fundamental right to be able to make a choice on her own shoes. In order to help them make those difficult choices women need many different shoes to choose from.
  • Collections - men collect Playboy magazines. Women collect shoes.
  • Friendship - they say a dog is a mans best friend - well shoes are a woman's best friend. Shoes will always be there for women and the more friends she can get the better.

What about you, girls?
