Five Fall Jewelry Trends You Might Want to Try

Jewelry always changes with the season, sometimes drastically and sometimes subtly but there's always a few things that are huge for that particular season. The leaves are changes, frost is starting to form on our cars overnight, and jackets are out of storage. Along with all of that comes the fall season's jewelry trends. Here are some of the main ones for this season:

1. Statement Rings: This means any big, eye catching ring. Some people like to go with a classic look; gold with a ruby or diamond and some go with a more modern/funky silver and opal or mixed gemstones. Either way, big and beautiful rings are one of the biggest trends for fall.

2. Statement Necklaces: Along with the huge, flashy rings are the necklaces of equal size and grandeur. Bib necklaces complete with shiny gemstones, diamonds, or crystals are another big thing for the fall. Ones that mix colors like sapphires and rubies or pink stones with green are even better. Some magazines and fashion experts say that with this more is better, piling on two of different lengths at a time can make the look even more interesting.

3. Classic Diamond or Gemstone Rings: Along with the huge and interesting comes an all-time classic. Even if you aren't married or engaged a classic ring with either diamonds or precious stones can make anyone look classy. Three stone diamond rings, large rubies, or even a slim band with smaller diamonds or gems for a wedding band inspired look is sure to look great with anything you wear.

5. Colored Diamonds: We've all seen the commercials for the chocolate diamonds, the blue diamonds, or even the deep yellow ones. Jewelry that has these colored alternatives set with some classic sparkly ones alongside them in any kind of jewelry is a great thing to wear not only in this season, but all the others as well.

Different Ways to Wear a Diamond

Here are three cute and trendy ways to wear a diamond or diamonds:

1. Pandora Jewelry: Pandora's signature bracelets have taken the jewelry industry by storm. Any reputable jeweler wants Pandora's cute and classy line in their windows. This is a great way to wear diamonds that's a little unconventional, but just as beautiful. Check out some of the different bracelet options and see what beautiful beads fit your personality best!

2. The New "Friendship Bracelet": This is an old concept with a new spin. Remember those braided bracelets you used to make at summer camp when you were young? Well, they're back with a whole new style. Elegant braided bracelets with diamond or precious gem embellishments are a whole new and growing trend. Get a look that's both classy and casual by wearing your diamonds retro summer style!

3. Flashy Earrings: Big and sparkly earrings are a big thing right now. The more gems and sparkle, the better. So get a pair of chandelier earrings complete with precious gems and a few diamonds.

Happy hunting

To continue what I started in this post, over in Spain I shot another series of my favorite THE OUTNET.COM picks. This time with a focus on those autumnal accessories, because let’s face it, that’s probably what brings us to the site 90% of the time, right? Finally a comfortable pair of Wangs? Count me in. A bag version of the Valentino Rockstud shoes? Please.

But they go as quickly as they come, so exercise your mind on quick decision making while I wish you happy hunting, my dearest bag and shoe obsessors.

Minju Kim x H&M

MINJU KIM x H&M jackets
COS shirt
ZARA pants

Minju who? This has been the reaction of nearly everyone to whom I’ve proudly presented the winning collection of this years H&M Design Award. I have to admit the 27 year old South Korean designer was new to me too, but I’m nothing short from impressed that H&M took a chance with a designer so.... different? Let’s go with unexpected.

So while we eagerly await for the launch of the iconic Marant collaboration, Minju Kim’s collection landed quietly with minimal promotion. I would have liked to see a bit more of a deserved hype; a launch party, a magazine spread or even a store window. However, apparently that did not stop the collection from selling out in minutes.

I took the good old fashion route down to the store that morning and bought the pieces that I loved the most, quality and design had me piling up almost the entire collection. The manga inspired range that was not only sold in H&M stores but at Opening Ceremony too, remained as an industry secret that even Ebay can’t seem help you out with.... So, it that a good or a bad thing?

More about the collaboration here.

Are Pricy Jeans a Sign of Quality Status?

high end quality jeans prices

It is no secret that today you’ll see many more companies investing all their money in solely producing great quality jeans that will attract a customer’s attention; collaborations seems to rocket their credibility. There used to be a time where Levi’s (the ones with the diminutive red tag and camel square tag behind) were the must have pair of jeans for any obsessed fashion fanatic. They still are one of the most coveted, but not the must go to for everything now. In fact, jeans have become a piece of symbol – with other competitive labels convincing us they have the perfect fit and quality– prices for these items can range from $160 - $500+ for a single pair of jeans that would sound ridiculous. But there are fashion magazines and adequate marketing techniques that have introduced us to so many new and overwhelming denim labels – 7 for all Mankind, A.P.C., True Religion, Paige, J. Brand, Simon Miller – and many other designer labels that include denim in their collections, it is fair to state jeans have become not only a form of wide branding, but quality status for many. 

So what happens when you invest in something greater than the average (more than $100)? And what’s the difference between a nicely washed straight jeans from Macy’s to an exclusive Armani Jeans or a pair of Prada? Or even Levi’s own more original Vintage Clothing label that raises the prices from its other diffusion line?

They say what you pay for is what you get for, and that is the result of these items. There is no doubt highly priced jeans are constructed better to fit your silhouette, made with higher quality fabrics that will last longer and get better over the time, and paid well attention to details – deconstruction, bleaching techniques, stitching, and more. And the more details is put in, the price tag will just slap you in your face like with a $2,390 Saint Laurent gold-chain skinny jeans you could maybe DIY for a cheaper version (shhhhh). But I believe the major player here is the stimulus of society. The feeling of having the True Religion label tag hanging around seems to make some internally appear cooler and important; look at me, you know I paid more than $200 for these. 

One seems to also feel better to pay an extra $100+ for a Vintage Clothing Levi’s jean than its counterpart. You try on a pair of Gucci or Givenchy and you feel the best because you know its luxury, but I think we tend to forget if these pair even looks great on you for the elevated price you’re about to cash out. Investing on pants is one thing, but jeans are something else. Is there any difference these items will do to you people will want to tell you where you got them from?

There are even bespoke denim shops – 3x1, Jean Shop, and Levi’s – that offer you the chance to customize the perfect pair of jeans that have the possibility to fit like a glove for a beginning offering price of $500 to $1,000 or more if you keep adding on needs. Take it as a special item made just for you and no one else to share with – not even yourself if you gain some weight.  

In general, I’ve learned that it is important to invest in a pair of great quality jeans, but you also have to know which label fits your needs. It’s not about the higher the price the better your rear. For a guy with thicker thighs, True Religion may be the “it” of the South, but for the fit of my needs I pass. Why waste $269 when you won’t feel comfortable, but ok, socially in? As you learn more, you realize sometimes things look marketable on a skinny guy or girl than on an actual real human. 

We may confess to find some straight Dolce & Gabbana jeans favorable for a tag label, or some splendid and badass Balmain biker jeans the real investment, but personally I’d agree sometimes there is nothing better than slipping on a good old pair of Levi’s that come in so many choice of styles. Fashion and society sometimes can be confusing.

Are there any jeans you’ve invested on lately or over the past time?

Shop some looks or take time to read descriptions:

Indeed hola from Mucia, Spain! Even I did not see that one coming, but I decided last minute to join my other half on a work trip. A brief change of scenery is always a good idea! I can tell you Murcia is very nice, I was strolling around the old city in when I released that this beautiful jacket thing was indeed very culturally correct. I think I do most of these clothing choices somewhat unconsciously. Giving the good old tailoring a rest was just what I needed, before it’s off to the capital of power dressing, New York!

I’m proudly wearing pumps from iconic Finnish designer Minna Parikka, for the longest time I’ve been meaning to get a pair, so I finally jumped on the opportunity with these oil hued pumps from Parikka’s fall collection.

Warehouse Floors Should Be Super Flat!

Ideally, warehouse floors ought to be super flat to support both arbitrary and defined traffic and also totoleratedifferent weights and recurring motions. Super flat floors can be performedby means of F-number measurements. F-number measurements ascertain floor flatness and also concrete levelness. It isemployedprior to floor construction and right afterto observechanges in concrete levelness.

You will alsomust use F-number measurement to ascertain floor flatness if you’re aiming tomodify floors. F-number measurement appropriatelyexamines the floor’s capacity to pass through new procedures. To guaranteeoptimum performance in new procedures, you should havea new lift truck warranty along with a higher type of floor flatness or concrete levelness.

A little older facilities exhibit poorly levelled floors. This issimply because that no F-number measurements were performedthrough the floor design method. Minus thenecessary information from F-number measurements, concrete flooring flows without certain floor flatness and also floor levelness. Many of these floor constructions can evenbe performed by hand. This crude procedure can deliver an FF20 or FL15 which can be poor floor level. But even thoughcompleted with equipment-supported construction techniques from trowelling, wet screed as well as highway straightedge to skilled craftsmen, floor improvements without F-number measurements can certainly still only accomplish moderately flat floors of FF25 or FL20.

Asfoundations of easy and efficient workflow, warehouse floors mustattain thegreat floor flatness. That isto make certain equipment and foot traffic may be well supported. The right model floor flatness will start reading FF110 or FL117.

Badly-levelled floors can beimproved upon. Before doing any enhancements or solutions, make sure to conduct F-number measurements to ascertain the volume of adjustment you couldundertake. It is possible tomake contact with a test lab which willexecute F-number measurements. One of several equipment they couldemploy is a profileograph. A profileograph is a wheeled devicewhich can measure a floor’s F-min.

Several floor challenges call fordifferent solutions. For low wear usage on lightcars or trucks or foot traffic, you can use a self-levelling, synthetic material which isbeneficial to low-wear use on. High wear purposeswill demand topping concrete within the old floors. If you discover localized or perhapsminimal floor problemslike small bumps, you can trycorrective spot grinding. However in order to correct super flat floor tolerances, you may want to do aisle grinding or wheel track. This processusuallyneeds some VNA turret truck procedures and AGV applications.

There is howevera problem with no found solution that happensalong the way of obtainingsatisfactory floor flatness that you'veto look out for. It's theswitching of loose joints on the floor that result to the crossing of vehicles and the chipping of the joint edges. A sign ofthis matter happening is when the lift truck operators start noticing some knocking sounds as well as bumps each and every time they cross the loose joints. To be able to prevent further damage to their vehicles, drivers will be forced to decelerate. However inthe entire process ofgoing slower, the driver can easily still chip the joint ends. Patches can onlyquicklyfix these chipped joint edges. Other optionslike doweling along with sub-slab grouting countdrastically on chemical reactionsand will take hours to accomplishin order to cure the damage.

Improving poorly-levelled floors can be quite atoughalong with a tedious procedure. It'll bebest for youto seeand perhaps hire floor flatness experts to observe, measure and maintain your warehouse floor’s levelness to ensure its long-term use and maximize your operations.

Six-time defending champion Rafael Nadal

MONACO - Six-time defending champion Rafael Nadal beat Andy Murray 6-4, 2-6, 6-1 in a thrilling match to reach the Monte Carlo Masters final on Saturday. Indianapolis Colts Joseph Addai Jersey . The top-ranked Spaniard was made to work for nearly three hours by Murray for his 36th straight win at the clay-court tournament, dropping a set at the tournament for the first time since the 2009 final against Novak Djokovic. "It is a fantastic victory for me against a very difficult opponent," Nadal said. "(To) start the clay court season being in the final is very good for me." He will play David Ferrer, who is looking for his third title this year, in an all-Spanish final. Nadal thinks he will have to improve on his performance against Murray. "I think I played too short for a lot of moments," Nadal said. "I think I had few more mistakes than usual." Ferrer is unbeaten on clay so far this season, winning a title at Acapulco, Mexico, and he also beat Nadal in the Australian Open quarter-finals. Nadal leads 11-4 overall but has lost once to Ferrer on clay, although that was in 2004. "He had a fantastic start to the season. He hasnt lose yet on clay this year," Nadal said. "Hes very dangerous, its going to be a very difficult match." Nadal was full of praise for Murray, tipping him to keep improving on clay in the leadup to the French Open, where Murray has never been past the quarter-finals. "He has unbelievable potential. Hes very good on all the surfaces," Nadal said. "Theres no reason why he cannot play very well on clay because his serve is good, his movements are very good, and his shots are with topspin." Murray, who is 4-10 against Nadal, thinks he has some way to go before he can beat Nadal on his favourite surface. "I want to try to play better than that," Murray said. "Ill need to, if I want to beat him, because hes going to improve the next few weeks, for sure, the more he plays on clay." The third-seeded Murray took a medical timeout at 3-0 down in the third set and had his right elbow massaged. The start of the match was delayed for 30 minutes while Murray had a cortisone injection into his elbow and wondered whether he would play. "I had a cortisone injection, local anesthetic in my elbow before the match," Murray said. "I was really like uptight about it. Id never had one before, didnt know what the feeling was going to be like. The doctor said that would probably be what would be suggested even if I didnt play the match, that they would suggest a cortisone injection, like an anti-inflammatory." He said hell have an exam on Sunday, but believed it shouldnt keep him off the tour. Nadal looked to be coasting to another straight-sets win at 4-1 up but Murray rallied superbly, edging the five-time French Open champion 9-7 in winners in the first set, and 13-3 in a second set of outstanding quality. "Hes the best player in the world and theres a reason for that," Murray said. "Its good to be close, but I think I could have done better." Nadal lost his serve six times in the match, and particularly struggled when Murray stepped inside to hit angled winners. "I was being patient. I was playing a ball with good height," Murray said. "When he left it a bit short, I was sort of stepping in." With his surge, however, the pain came back at 2-0 down in the third. He argued unsuccessfully with the umpire for a medical timeout, and by the time the trainer could see him, he was down 3-0. Earlier, fourth-seeded Ferrer beat seventh-seeded Jurgen Melzer of Austria 6-3, 6-2 to reach his second Masters final, having lost his first in Rome to Nadal last year. "Im full of confidence. I feel good physically, and also with my tennis," Ferrer said. "I hope Ill keep going." Lance Moore Jersey .

The Sweden striker dived low in the 82nd minute to head in Daniel Alves deflected cross to round out the scoring. Earlier, Bojan Krkic and Seydou Keita had also scored from headers at the Camp Nou, where the Catalan club opened its season without star forward Lionel Messi who had travelled to Argentina to prepare for Saturdays crucial World Cup qualifier against Brazil. Keyta flicked on a corner toward the far post in the 17th minute and Krkic headed home to open the scoring. The Mali midfielder then met Alves swinging cross in the 42nd to beat Juan Pablo with another powerful header. "Every rival is important, so it was important to win today," Alves said. But Barcelona also learned that it will be without Krkic for two to three weeks with a leg injury that forced the teenage striker off in the 80th minute.

"He just arrived, he needed to find his rhythm, know his teammates," Alves said. "But we always knew the goals would come because of his quality."

Most girls have wedding dreams with fantasy, and hesitate what kind of wedding should be held, modern fashion wedding or retro style wedding. Here is a suggestion that you can combine the two kinds of wedding styles by modern wedding dresses and vintage glasses. As you know, there are various kinds of vintage glasses, round black rimmed glasses, cat eye glasses, tortoise shell glasses, or irregular glasses and so on. In wedding, women can choose cat eye glasses, which are always the favorite glasses styles by fashion women, and men can choose oversized glasses.

Maybe groom and bride can wear the same glasses style, for example, round black rimmed glasses, and is it cute, huh?

What Do You Know about Aviator Sunglasses?

 Aviator Sunglasses
The eyewear company Ray Ban developed the first style of aviator sunglasses or “aviators” for short in 1937. Early in the 20th century, as pilots often flied high over all kinds of mountains, they had to take overall outfit, including leather hoods, fur-lined goggles and so on. To protect eyes from extremely low temperatures and harsh sunlight, they must wear thick goggles. However, these goggles would leave undesirable tans on pilots’ faces, and for a long time these tans wouldn’t disappear. Sometimes pilots must remove the goggles for an instant to risk lives, and then eyes were exposed in the harsh conditions so that eyes would be enormously damaged. John Macready, a pilot who had experienced eyes hurting with early goggles, got the idea of designing early aviator glasses. 

By the late 1930s, advertisements for Ray Ban promised “real scientific glare protection” for fishermen and golfers. Not yet called aviators, the glasses nonetheless captured the essence of aviator goggles with their teardrop shape and frames as delicate as biplane’s struts. Sold as sporting equipment, they cost several dollars at a time as sunglasses could be had for 25 cents. During World War II,aviators became standard gear for military men, including Gen. Douglas MacArthur. 

Aviator glasses are characterized by thin wire frames, often gold or black in color and large dark lenses that are approximately three times larger than the average human eye socket. Some versions have reflective lenses instead of dark lenses. Another feature of aviator sunglasses is their bulging lenses. Most of eyeglasses and sunglasses are fitted with flat lenses, while aviator glasses have lenses that bulge outwards slightly, and this design allows for maximum coverage of the eye area. The styles of aviator glasses become more and more various with the times. Aviators are designed not only for pilots or navy, but also for celebrities, even the civilian community. In various magazines or fashion reports, celebrities with aviator glasses can be seen everywhere. It is easy to see that aviators always maintain a high level of popularity.

Why to Wear Reading Glasses?

Why to Wear Reading Glasses
Reading glasses almost become necessities in some people’s life, especially aged people. Have you ever considered the reasons for this situation? In fact, there may be some explanations from two aspects, physical and psychological level. When we thoroughly understand what causes our far vision, we could correctly choose suitable designer reading glasses. 

With regard to the reasons for wearing reading glasses, we will set about from physical level. One consequence of aging is a loss of flexibility and elasticity in most tissues. In the case of eyes, there can be a loss of basic functions. With aging, the lens in our eyes gets less able to change shape or focus properly, and the lens becomes less and less elastic. Usually this situation gives rise to losing of near vision. Sometimes we also call the case of lens’ losing of focus “presbyopia”. In this case, we must resort to reading glasses to read books or newspapers. Of course, people who get laser surgery to correct distance vision may wind up needing reading glasses, however, the risk of surgery can’t be ignored. Maybe choosing exact prescription reading glasses would be a proper option. 

In some situations, wearing reading glasses has something to do with psychological factors. Many aged people have been accustomed to wearing reading glasses when reading. Without eyeglasses, they won’t focus on the reading content and the saying “Habit is a second nature” rules. As you know, everyone loves beauty. The styles of prescription reading glasses tend to be more diverse, not just simple glasses frame and lenses, and gradually designer reading glasses get closely related with fashion, for example, there are clic reading glasses or cool reading glasses. Some aged people prefer designer reading glasses with fashion design. Sometimes cute reading glasses are the spice of life. 

According to online survey, most people buy designer reading glasses or fashion reading glasses in the online shops, where they can receive better custom service and higher quality assurance. You can visit Ozeal Glasses for more information.

Men's Spring 2014 Shoes: It's Worth Talking About

Top Left to Right: Dolce and Gabbana Men's Spring 2014 lace-ups, Dior Homme, and Prada sneakers.
Bottom Left to Right: Calvin Klein Collection Men's Spring 2014 shoes; Louis Vuitton Men's silver oxfords

Lately, it seems we've been focusing a great amount of time on women's fashion instead of menswear as well. There are other sites who are still talking about the must have women's accessories for next spring 2014, but not much (only a few) have shared their thoughts on next season's spring 2014 men's accessories. 

We have already covered most of the men's spring 2014 collection here, but we haven't focused on something else that gives a final touch and life to an outfit.......Shoes! They are the basis of what makes a collection stand out even if "shoes" don't come to mind. Why do I like that outfit so much? The shoes are probably the answer.

Personally, as I searched for some of the best shoes of the season, I noticed designers are beginning to put much more thought and details into men's shoes. We used to see the same types of brogues, monks, and oxford styles in previous collections, but with technology changing the world of fashion, there is so much more to offer now. And bigger competition to survive in the accessories industry to convince someone to pay such thousands of dollars on a single pair of shoes.

Real leather may elevate prices over the sky for some, but you have to agree some things just transmit a better image when luxury is injected into them. All of these shoes above and below are basically the same type of leather until details become the noteworthy part that separate each brand.

Dior Homme caused a sensation with those insets of silver hardware that said nothing so basic about a pair of derbies, while Louis Vuitton's textured patches of silver-y metallic oxfords stated luxury party boy when paired with black suit attires - it made one want to leave those ordinary black oxfords somewhere else. Raf Simons (slide 19) also made squared loafers give us another thought on wearing them again with a technical brush of faded blue on its vamp, and Lanvin gave great amount of texture to its pair of white invigorating loafers (slide 13).

When it came to casual attire, sneakers sure did make a pleasing l'air to spend some money on next season. Fendi (slide 5) came up with one of the best men's sneakers to crave over with dying techniques that lifted the cool factor of an ordinary sneaker. Kris Van Assche (slide 18) didn't stay behind as well, giving black monk-straps a unique twist by turning them into a pair of black sneakers. Burberry Prorsum's men's colored sneakers in suede and Gucci's blue leather lace-ups gave it a nice classical touch for the ones who may have the money to spare on, but Valentino kept it strong again with their detailed camouflage sneakers that at $795 for a single pair of these describes what luxury sneakers are all about. Although, Jimmy Choo's spring 2014 mens pair of sneakers and high-tops could increase the competition for Valentino somewhat very soon. But don't worry, because hopefully Kenneth Cole's new black and bronze snake high-tops (slide 10) may come accessible for the rest of us to enjoy. 

Overall, next season will come full of indecisive choices of great clothes and shoes you'll have to think about to save you out of debt.

On to Christmas

Christmas parties. The chance to have a laugh and socialise with colleagues or just a mess waiting to happen?
The stats for Christmas parties and pretty poor with half of them involving a fight between colleagues, a third resulting in sexual harassment claims and a fifth of parties involve serious accidents. Over half have had a cheeky snog with a boss or colleague, a third have engaged in drunken sex and three quarters of bosses have claimed that an employee threatened to take a case to tribunal regarding another employees behaviour at a party.
What can we do can do to stop the party descending into chaos? One option, of course, is to cancel your party. That seems extreme to most and slightly 'bah humbug'. Also, most bosses want to give their employees a party to thank them for the work done that year. So, what can we do?
Step one: Issue guidelines on what is and isn't acceptable behaviour. Weather you write a party policy or just send an email giving a heads up on what is expected it is important you staff have guidelines in place.
Step two: Carry out risk assessments on the venue. A Christmas party is a work related venture so you must ensure the venue is safe. Cover you back; make sure you took the relevant steps to make your staff safe so if something does go wrong you are less likely to be at fault.
Step three: Decide if partners are allowed. You may end up doubling your party numbers by inviting partners so think carefully about your budget. More people means more chance for something to go wrong or fights to occur.
Step four: Limit the amount of free alcohol. You want your employees to have a good time but providing a free bar all night will inevitably result in very drunk people so set an amount of drinks per person and don't be persuaded to increase it.
Step five: Consider the food supplied. Make sure you don't offend anyone with your chose of food, consider peoples religions and beliefs. Ensure there are vegetarian options and vegan options if required.
Step six: Don't allow drink driving. You are responsible for your employees' safety if they drink alcohol you have provided. Take reasonable steps to ensure your employees get home safely, make sure local taxi firms numbers are readily available. Even consider hiring a mini bus if the need is there.
Step seven: Set realistic standards for the next morning. How much the employees' are expected to do is up to you. You have to decide prior to the party how much you expect from them the next day and let everyone aware of the standards you expect. Generally, expect a little less from your employees.
If you use these steps as a guideline your party should go without a hitch. Of course there will always be unforeseen circumstances but these will help you stay in as much control as possible.
