The Cadillac of the label selection is the custom woven label. You may choose from a selection of fabric like damask, taffeta, satin, and semi-damask. Unlike many competitors, at http://clothinglabels4u.com these deluxe fabric woven labels also come in an iron-on version for those who prefer the fabric labels, but want them to lie flat against the clothing item, instead of sewing them at the seams.

As well as the woven labels, Clothing Labels 4U offers a version in leather or pleather, just like those from your favorite pair of jeans, but you can have it personalized with your own logo or design.

Budding Fashion Designer? Get Your Name Out There Creatively!

Some fashion designers have such a distinctive style that it is easy to pick their clothing items out in a crowd, but with some, it is all in the label.  Personally, I am not a fan of the “tagless” label because sometimes it can look very cheap and it starts to peel off over time.  There are even a few clothing designers like Louis Dell’Olio, formerly with Anne Klein, and George Simonton, who has been an instructor at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC for over 25 years, that have resisted the idea of tagless items and have proudly displayed their names on custom woven labels.

If you have ventured out and created some of your own designs, whether it is a sewn, crafted, or knitted item, the label with your own name or logo on it is the icing on the cake.  It is one of the things that distinguishes your personalized clothing tags from everyone else’s. THere are many services online for producing woven clothing labels. With many of them, you can choose your wording and design from 300 symbols, 19 color, and 19 different font types.  The tags are then woven in a damask weave for durability with washing and style.  They are constructed of 100% polyester and can be applied by hand or with any regular sewing machine.  At the average price of $50 per 21 labels, it is an economical way to add that perfect touch to your own designs.  For those who would rather have the label lying flat on the fabric, there is also an iron-on version.

As far as clothing labels go, there are less expensive ones out there, but they are usually printed on a pressed-type polyester fabric and not only don’t have the “presence” of the woven fabric labels, but also can tear and deteriorate more quickly.

So, if you are going to put your heart and soul into an item that you created, then, choose a quality label to proudly display your name creatively. Also, if you are looking for the perfect packaging, many of these sites also have printed ribbon and hang tags to give your creation that personal touch.

Rings For Special Occasions

Society, by default, assumes that rings are automatically purchased in lieu of weddings or engagements. Even if just to say how much you care, there are literally thousands of reasons why you should give the gift of diamond rings. To help inspire you, here are several common occasions where rings are an appropriate purchase.

Renewing vows

Once couples have hit milestone anniversaries, they’ll entertain renewing their vows which basically reaffirms the same love they promised each other ‘x’ amount of years ago. This would also be an opportune time to give each other new wedding bands to symbolize the reaffirmation of these vows (not to mention your rings are probably pretty worn after 25 years). Platinum would be perfect around the 25 year mark, while gold would probably suffice at your 10 or 15 year affirmation. Anniversaries coincide with renewing vows as you’ll more than likely have your nuptials read at your anniversary party.

Birthdays, of course!

Instead of throwing outlandish parties for someone’s 30th, 40th, or 50th birthday party, why not take them out to eat and offer them a beautifully created diamond ring? Gifts of this magnitude should gradually get better in terms of quality as one ages; a beautifully hand crafted platinum setting for an S1 clarity of diamond would be perfect at the half-century mark of one’s life. Chocolate or strawberry gold would be perfect for a young girl’s 18th birthday party as it symbolizes both a daring and conservative appearance often showcased in our current era.

Child birthing (the ‘Push’ present)

After going through long, excruciating hours of labor pains then finally delivering a beautiful miracle, what better way to congratulate the newly proud mother than by giving her an exquisite piece of diamond jewelry! Provided she picked the name out prior to giving birth, you could actually purchase the ring with both the mother and child’s name inscribed on the inside of the ring. There is honestly no other more immaculate occasion to give someone a beautiful gift than after the woman brings new life into existence. You can learn more about sizing rings appropriate to her finger size by downloading various ring sizing guides found online today.

‘Just because’

Yet another popular category for purchasing rings casts a wider net even still. Honestly, you really don’t need an excuse to hop down to the jewelry store to purchase a beautiful diamond ring. Giving random gifts to the person who loves you proves how much the love is reciprocated. You could take your loved one to a picnic and surprise them with a diamond ring, leaving rings inside wineglasses then pour your dinner wine, or come up with another creative way to present a diamond ring to this truly remarkable person.

Whether for anniversaries, graduations, birthdays or giving credit where credits due to a new mother, every special occasion is the perfect time to give the gift of precious jewelry. Bonus points to the person that creates their own special occasion and makes the moment the most memorable one yet.

One guy who was spotted out for some exercise in Paris, during a film shoot was actor Simon Baker of the television show The Mentalist.

The next celebrity spotting was Will Ferrell and his family, as he traveled through an airport. Will really managed to disguise himself as the Average Joe in his printed grey t-shirt, baby blue pedal pusher length shorts, and canvas slip-on shoes. My eyes are drawn immediately to the black socks and I wonder how his wife let him get away with that one. No style award for you today Will!

Glossy vs Matte Nail Polish

Nail art is all the rage these days which means if you’ve attempted to embellish your digits you probably snapped a pic or two. Nail “selfies” are all over Facebook and Instagram, as everyones excited to show of their handywork. Recently, however, many of my friends – as well as some fashion news and trends 2014 websites have been talking about matte polish.

If you follow the runway shows, you’d know matte nail polish isn’t new and has been very popular for the past few seasons. However, not everyone is ready to give up their glossy finish for a lackluster mani. So where do you fall on the great shine debate?

Either finish can look great but to really have a little fun try both at the same time. At Zang Toi’s runway show during last year’s New York Fashion Week, the nail artists at Zoya (yes they really are artists) painted the models nails black and used a matte finish top coat to draw a thick matte lines across the nail. This added some easy texture. Make it your own and add polk a dots, zig zags or matte tips for a little fun on your finger tips (subtle enough for the office!)
