bikini origins
Over sixty years ago, this now-ubiquitous-then-controversial swimsuit made its debut at a pool-side party in Paris. In this day and age, it is hard to comprehend the shock of the general public when this over-the-top swimming attire stepped into the limelight.

Gucci Military Style Coat There is already that nip in the air, and fall has set in. Before winter dons your world in a coat of white, you might as well hurry up and pick up your own coat for the season. Or, if you are like me, you would choose in plural: coats! Yes, I am a believer in glamorous coats that beat the brutal cold but still manage to make the wearer look hot. Protection from the weather does not necessarily mean saying goodbye to glamour, and in a season that doesn't offer any

The Invention of Skirts Skirts can be sassy, flirty, businesslike, severe, fun or elegant, but all of them definitely emphasize one quality; and that is femininity.
