Ray-Bans have been around for a number of decades. In that time they have been worn by many of the world’s most high profile stars.

From movie stars to singers and even Presidents, the appeal of these sunglasses has won over many admirers over the years.

James Dean

One of the very first stars to look great with Ray-Bans on was also one of the first. James Dean became an icon when he appeared in Rebel Without a Cause wearing Ray-Ban Wayfarers.

This powerful endorsement of the brand is credited as being one of the reasons why it became so sought after in the early days. Dean looked amazing with his Ray-Bans on and suddenly everyone else wanted to copy his style and his attitude.

Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe is another huge star who decided that wearing Ray-Ban Sunglasses was an incredibly cool thing to do. In fact, you may have seen her image used in the 75th anniversary celebrations of this world famous brand.

Her use of these glasses helped their appeal to reach out to more people, as she was one of the world’s most photographed people at the time. If James Dean added a coolness factor to Ray-Bans then Marilyn made them glamorous and sexy when she put them on.

Bob Dylan

Dylan helped to add mystique and edginess to the sunglasses brands when he put them on.
The singer songwriter went through a phase in which he was rarely seen in public without his tinted glasses on.

They provided the perfect counterpoint to his tousled mop of hair and he looked every inch the mysterious, bohemian poet with them on.

John F.Kennedy

Even US Presidents wanted in on the act of looking cool with Ray-Ban sunglasses on. In the case of JFK, he would often put on a pair of Wayfarers when he was out relaxing at the weekend.

This helped to add to his youthful, film star look, of course. Few political leaders have looked as good as JFK did with sunglasses on.

John Lennon

Another of the world’s biggest stars to have worn Ray-Ban glasses with style was John Lennon.  The ex-Beatle apparently had very bad eyesight and often chose to wear Ray-Ban glasses with prescription lenses to stay looking cool while being able to see clearly at the same time.

Lennon definitely helped add a degree of hipness and modernity to the brand at a time when it needed to update its image and face up to modern rivals and changing tastes.

John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd

Perhaps the most amazing use of sunglasses in the history of cinema came in the Blues Brothers. John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd and the rest were almost unbearably cool when they slipped on their Ray-Bans.

The music is this weird yet massively successful movie was memorable but many people remember the dudes with the suits and the shades even more than the tunes. The impact of their style is still remembered too and probably still plays a part in helping people to decide that the time is right to slip on some sunglasses.

Tom Cruise

If you can remember Tom Cruise in Risky Business then there is a fair chance that it is with a spectacular pair of Ray-Bans perched on his nose. This ushered in a new era for the sunglass maker, as it used product placement in movies to boost its image.

Cruise then made an even bigger impression with his Ray-Bans on Top Gun. This movie was an especially good place for the manufacturer to show off their wares, as the original use of Ray-Bans was for use by pilots who needed their eyes protected from the sun at high altitudes. Later on, he would wear them in his Mission Impossible movies as well.

Madonna

The movie Desperately Seeking Susan might not have been a huge success, but it let us see how good Madonna looked wearing a pair of stylish Ray-Bans. The singer’s attempt at becoming an actress didn’t work out but her style in the movie worked wonders for the sunglasses brand.

Madonna also took to wearing the shades when she was off-screen as well. In fact, they were soon to become a big part of her image and something that millions of women all round the world wanted to copy.

The Reservoir Dogs Characters

Kitting out the entire group of criminals in Reservoir Dogs with Ray-Bans was a masterstroke from Quentin Tarantino. The director made a massive impact with this film and the style of the actors had a lot to do with it.

Tarantino was even awarded a Ray-Ban Visionary Award for the style with which he pulled off this movie.

Designer Jewellery and You

 photo diploma_advanced01orig_zps7jgstoyz.jpg

Fashion can be hard to follow. Especially, if you want to pair designer clothes with jewellery. You have to choose the right look for you, the right patterns and colour schemes. You have to know what is in and what’s out, along with being realistic.

Just because you see something you like in a magazine, does not mean it will work for you. In addition to this, you also have to factor in the costs of putting together a designer outfit, complete with accessories, as this can be and usually is quite costly.

There are ways around this though, many high street retailers offer fashionable clothes and jewellery that are similar in style, albeit more cheaply made. But you can often find a similar look to the one you want for a fraction of the price.

Matching accessories

Let’s say you’ve found the perfect outfit. The clothes are great, they make you feel good, but you can’t help but feel as if something is missing. To finish the look, you might want to consider adding some matching accessories. A great way to do this and also relatively easy, is to just add matching jewellery.

However, there is an absolutely vast range of different types of jewellery to choose from. This also includes the finish and quality. You can get anything from metals, including, gold and silver, although these will be much more costly than plastic alternatives. There is also wooden, plastic, glass not to mention other types to look into as well.

Realistically it is entirely up to you as to what material you would like the best, but just remember that some materials will compliment more than others. The best thing to do is to shop around until you find the perfect accessory. There is something out there for everyone…

Where to look?

A good starting point would be to look fashion magazines and see what models are wearing. You can also quite easily do an internet search on what is fashionable and what accessory will go with which item of clothing, right down to a colour match.

There are also many online websites that sell jewellery, from the basics to designer. One great place to look at is called Choblo UK. Stocking its own unique brand, known as ChloBo Designer Jewellery. This website sells all kinds of jewellery that will match almost anything in your wardrobe with minimal effort.

Why choose designer?

So why choose designer jewellery over regular? Well there are several reasons, which are listed below:

  • Designer jewellery is made with higher quality materials, which in turn means will last much longer than a standard piece.
  • The name says it all, the piece has been specifically designed to look the best.
  • If you are a fan of celebrity fashion, then they are more likely to wear designer pieces. If you want to match the look, then doing designer is the easiest route.
  • You are buying someone’s hard work. A person has taken a lot of time and effort to design and make the piece of jewellery, so a lot of care will have been taken to make sure that it is good enough to wear as well as sell. As such will be much less likely to have manufacturing faults, or fall apart after frequent use.

 Popular Now

When looking at designer jewellery, one piece that comes up regularly is the Charm bracelet. A popular piece of jewellery and for good reasons too. Here we list a few reasons why you should consider a Charm Bracelet when thinking about buying any kind of jewellery.

  • They come in a wide variety of colours and materials.
  • They are highly customisable with various charms, which can be inexpensive.
  • You can change the look and feel of the bracelet with ease. By changing the charms, adding more or even taking some away, you can drastically alter the look and feel of your bracelet.
  • By being able to change the look of your bracelet, you can therefore accessorise it with multiple outfit choices.
  • Many people like to use the charms to show people a little bit about themselves, it can be a great conversation starter too.
  • The charms can be cheap, you could even try to make your own and it might also be a good idea to consider swapping charms with friends and family, until you get the perfect charm for you.

There are many reasons to consider buying a charm bracelet, but if you do, then remember whilst there are many different brands to choose from, make sure you go to a reputable source if you want a good quality, long lasting one. There are cheaper versions of charm bracelets out there, but you get what you pay for. It’s worth looking at getting a ChloBo Charm Bracelet, as you can be guaranteed on quality.

As Asian myself, I am kind of proud and happy to have this kind of clothing which one in trend today because it does represent too on where I am and who really I am, as Asian

Clothe review:

The piece itself is indeed beautiful and it’s fabric does a great job as it was a cotton and I feel so comfortable having it unlike the usual kind of dress which used to have politer clothes than can makes you quite irritated as you wears it the long run. Overall, these type of dresses are superb and a must have as you wanted to have a great piece this summer season.

By the way, Ive bought this dress in Macy’s for like 15 USD, pretty much a good deal right? so – if you want to have the same you can now go in any macy’s stores nears you and have it on your shopping bag for good.

The Beginner’s Checklist For Looking Great In Photographs

We are arguably taking more photographs than ever before. Whether you have the fanciest professional camera and lens or a simple instant camera, you can achieve amazing results. There are many reasons we might want to take photographs. Perhaps we’re visiting a new city or a beautiful location. Maybe we want to document our outfit for a blog or special occasion. We might simply want to look back on the day and remember it through the photographs we took. There might be no particular reason! But whatever our motivation, photographs can be a treasured personal possession and a way to remember important times in our life. It is natural to want to look your best in them and achieve the best effect. Help is at hand! We’re all still learners when it comes taking pictures, no matter how long we’ve been practising. This technology is constantly evolving so we have to try and involve with it. If you want to look your best in photographs, then try this easy checklist.

Number 1: The Makeup

Some people now make a living through Instagram and Facebook by photographing their makeup skills! Most of us are not at that level and don’t have time to get to it. But there are still a few makeup tips you can remember for taking a great picture. You may want to make your skin look as flawless as possible, but look for products without SPF. SPF features commonly in high street makeup and can be a lifesaver. It stops us skipping the annoying but essential step of applying sunscreen. But it flashes back in photographs. This can give us a strange white cast or “waxy” look to our skin. Try to just use concealer where you need it or seek out makeup with no SPF. Choose one feature to play up such as the eyes or lips. Playing up both can make it look like they are competing for attention. So just subtly draw the attention to one such as with kohl pencil or a pink lip. Finally, be sure to make the most of your bone structure. Not all of us have killer cheekbones or a strong jaw, but we can create one! Sculpting powders like the contour kit from Anastasia are very popular for making the features stand out. Follow a tutorial on YouTube and you can’t go wrong!

Number 2: Have A Great Background

Nothing looks a photograph look more striking and professional than a great background. Try to develop your photographer’s eye. Look for amazing landmarks, colours, or beautiful features. Posing in front of them can instantly raise your photography game. In can be easy to take a picture wherever you are standing, but put a bit of thought and effort into what’s behind you. It will make all the difference.

Number 3: Know Your Camera

A wonderful, modern camera with all the trimmings can make our lives easier. But it is not necessary to have one to take great photos. In fact, even if you have a great camera, unless you know how to handle it well then your photographs will still look bad! Put effort into getting to know your camera and you’ll achieve better results, whatever your budget.

Number 4: Relax!

Staying relaxed and happy in photographs is the key to making them shine. Photographs pick up subtle expressions and body language so it is important not to let tensions or worries get a hold. Think happy thoughts and your pictures will automatically look better. It will be more fun too!
