One piece outfits that are outfitted with areas for the feet to slip into and be covered are also a popular option for baby clothes.

Some parents to dress their infants in style with jeans and polo's this of course is more for the parents enjoyment than it is for the babies. Infant boy clothing is available in every possible offering that a grown mans clothes is, just scaled down to fit the baby. There are blue jeans, khakis, little suits, t-shirts with funny sayings and logos. There are even little shoes that slip on baby's feet that mimic adult shoes.

Necessary Items

One piece sleepers to keep baby covered at night, typically babies will kick their blankets off during their sleep and to prevent baby from getting a chill a one piece sleeper is a good idea.

Bibs, to protect baby's clothing from stains and spills are a necessity as well. Socks to cover those little feet are important (and some moms use socks on very young infant's hands to keep the baby from scratching himself). Hats to protect babies head from losing heat and from being in the sun, even if baby is not in direct sunlight the sunlight can be reflected off of other items and burn baby's tender skin. Blankets will also be needed. Anything beyond these items is really whimsy and not necessary but nice to have.

February 7th, 2010
Hello Kitty Fair

Hello Kitty

Hello Kitty is one of the most favorite cartoons in the Sanrio collection. This cartoon character was basically created along with other characters including her Papa, Mama, her boyfriend Dear Daniel, Cinnamonroll, Mory, Tippy the Bear, Chococat, Deery Lou, Thomas, ChiChai, Mimmy, Monchan, Cathy, Chibimaru, Jodie the Dog, Tim and Tammy, Badtz Maru, Jody, and a whole lot of other characters. Hello Kitty was first introduced in Japan by Sanrio, a Japan-based company.

Hello Kitty – The History

When she was first introduced, however, Hello Kitty was nameless, but she was simply adorable that pretty soon Hello Kitty became popular among Japanese school girls. The character’s image began to appear in lunch boxes, coin purses, bags, and a lot of other items. It was only a year later that she was officially given a name.

The rest of the world eventually caught the Hello Kitty fever, and soon, little girls walked around carrying Hello Kitty bags to school. The cartoon character captured the fancy of girls in countries like the United States and the Great Britain. It was easy because Hello Kitty actually lives in London and is, in fact, a British citizen.

Hello Kitty’s Rise to Fame

The popularity of Hello Kitty can also be attributed to the little details about this character which gave her life, like the fact that she likes her Mama’s apple pie; or that she likes to travel, read or listen to music; or that she likes making new friends and going out with them; or that she likes to eat cookies and collect stuffs like candies and goldfish.

Hello Kitty’s popularity gave way to her starring in several TV series in America and Japan where she played the lead role. There were also remakes of fairly tales where Hello Kitty once again played the lead role.

Nowadays, you could consider this feline as a fashion diva. Products with her images are being sold in more than 40 countries worldwide. She is featured in a wide range of products such as bags, electronic games, cars, vacuum cleaners, breath testers, beddings, camera, toys, purses, clothing – in fact, there is an estimated 20,000 products all exhibiting this feline’s image. Nowadays, Hello Kitty is featured in personal or customized checks.

If you’re a fan of Hello Kitty, you’d find a lot of stores online that offer printing of checks with Hello Kitty images on them. The prices vary from one online store to another, depending on the set and the number of boxes. Getting your own Hello Kitty check would be great way to make people smile. You just have to check with your bank though if they would accept a Hello Kitty check.

If you’re pretty manly, you might have second thoughts about getting this kind of checks. Although, Hello Kitty printed checks might be tad uncomfortable for you to take out, it would certainly be surprising and funny. Imagine the receiver’s expression once you hand him your Hello Kitty check. That would probably make his day.

For women though, paying your bills would be much cuter with Hello Kitty checks. You can also get variations of the Hello Kitty prints. They’re worth looking at every single day of your life. Perhaps, you could even get the Hello Kitty printed credit card after this.

There are a lot of people who have ordered and are using the Hello Kitty checks, and they are having a blast with them. A lot of people would compliment or positively comment on the checks. How could they not? These checks are meant to bring out a smile or two. They even have Hello Kitty checkbook covers to go along with the checks. It would be a wise idea though to keep the checks from your daughter, she might end up playing with them if she’s a Hello Kitty fan as well.

Nike Air Force Ones for the New Millennium

February 5th, 2010

For decades, Nike Air Force Ones have dominated the sneaker market. They are worn by celebrities, athletes, adults, children and teenagers alike. The sneakers have become increasingly popular all over the world and have become a status symbol in many ways. Nike has consistently introduced new designs for the shoe each and every year and 2009 is proving to be no different. These popular shoes have been manufactured and advertised as the must have footwear for the new millennium.

One of the reasons that this style of footwear has become so infamous and popular is its incredible diversity. The sneakers can be worn in any number of situations and match all types of clothing outfits, tastes and styles. If you are looking to head to the basketball court to play a game of pick up, then these are the shoes for you. If you are looking to strap on some kicks that add a great finishing touch to your outfit, then these are the shoes for you. Or even if you are searching for some comfortable footwear around the house or to head to the gym, these are the shoes for you.

While the sneakers are produced with all ages in mind, they cater exceptionally well to the needs of young children and teenagers. While adults seem to have a designated routine each day, children are far less predictable. An adult will plan to go to the gym at a certain time, then head to the office after. Therefore, it is easy to have a specific pair of sneakers for the gym and a specific pair for the office. Young adults don't follow the same routine. A teenager may be hanging inside in the mall one day, and then jump at the opportunity to run out and play some hoops. Air force ones are designed to adapt to different situations. They can provide comfort for indoor uses yet transfer over to strenuous outdoor activities almost seamlessly.

The color combinations and designs for air force ones are seemingly endless. No matter what your individual style is Nike has found a way to suit your needs through the diversity of the shoe's design. In the new millennium, the company has increased its style options even more than before. If you are looking for a sleek design to wear out on a date, or a design that is more suited to the rugged outdoors, you can easily find the appropriate sneaker. Many people even own more than a couple pairs to suit their needs in different situations. You can choose to own one pair that you can wear all day, everyday or have a few pairs stashed in the closet for certain special events and situations, it's entirely up to you.

Be sure to choose the right type of shoes for your sport though. If you are playing basketball, you may wish to pick up a pair of Nike Air Force One or Nike Dunks. If you are into running, a pair of Nike athletics shoes may be just what you are looking for. Having the right pair of shoes is important because as mentioned earlier, different sports involve different movements. The shoes are specially built to cater to these movements. You don't want to be wearing a pair of indoor court shoes to run a marathon. That will do more harm than good.

The Scent of a Woman in Men's Fashion Clothing Design

February 3rd, 2010

It might sound ridiculous, but, it has been so for centuries.

Jean Patou a Paris fashion designer made silk ties from women's dress material, hence the advent of the designer tie.

So the concept is nothing new. The fact is women's fashion is specifically designed to attract man.

And so naturally including a smidgeon of femininity into men's accessories, silk ties in particular, makes perfect sense. The other thing is, you'd be surprised at the number of females that design men's clothing.

It is our good fortune that they do, otherwise we'd end up with nothing other than grey suits, striped ties and tattered old wallets.

I've seen the spring summer 2009 silk tie collection, they are drab and colourless, a series of stripes and geometric patterns, no floral's at all, which, after seeing what women plan to wear is in contrast to logic.

How much longer do we have to be confined to conservative shades of grey?

Well, luckily there are changes afoot and if you're prepared to look hard enough will be rewarded. There are designers out there who accurately forecast future trends and they're the ones to watch as they buck the critics view.

The women fashion designers I know of and or associated with all share common traits, the way they incorporate colour and pattern cannot be mimicked by man. And that's where the great appeal is, it's the scent of a women in the designs they create.

Rather than follow mainstream, we've created our own regime with a small cluster of male and female designers. People may ask, what's so special about that? Well there's only one way to find out.

By name, Cressida Bell, Victoria Richards and Vivienne Westwood, Shane McCoubrey, Ian Flaherty, Lbb London and Simon Carter.

By unique product brand, Falling Leaves silk ties, Bar, Orb, and the cube Swarovski crystal cufflink by Ian Flaherty.

And if it's Jewellery for men you're searching for? The best is deigned by a woman.

Now here are a couple of historic anecdotes from our data base.

1971: Maverick screen actress Katherine Hepburn, whose long-term lover Spencer Tracey was a customer of Huntsman, takes the extraordinary step of ordering bespoke denim jeans from her late lover's Savile Row tailor. Hepburn's commission foreshadows bespoke denim collections launched in 2006 by Timothy Everest and Evisu.

1973: Robert Redford stars in the definitive film of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby. Fitzgerald was a dedicated customer of Jermyn Street bespoke shirt maker Turnbull & Asser. The shirts that reduce The Great Gatsby's socialite heroine Daisy (Mia Farrow) to tears with their beauty in the film all bear the Turnbull & Asser bespoke label.

1974: Gieves Ltd acquires Hawkes (and the precious freehold of No I Savile Row) and become Gieves & Hawkes.Tommy Nutter seeks sanctuary at Kilgour, French & Stanbury after his acrimonious exit from Nutters of Savile Row. Kilgour also incorporates the famed hunt tailoring specialist Bernard Weatherill. Nutters of Savile Row continues with Sexton, Roy Chittleborough and Joseph Morgan. Maurice Sedwell hires Trinidad-born Andrew Ramroop who will go on to become Managing Director and a Professor of tailoring at the London College of Fashion.

There will always be a niche to fill and our aim is to do so.
