The Benefits of a Mini Back Pack & Why You NEED One

Struggling on the commute with a handbag and a laptop bag should be a thing of the past. We all know the pain of having to carry a plethora of bags with us, just to get to work. Armed with our laptops, books, notes, stationery, lunch as well as the multitude of gadgets that we take with us, it seems we need suitcases, as opposed to handbags. And the pain that you suffer from carrying all these goods around on one arm is excruciating! Here’s the secret: mini backpacks. Fashionistas of the world need not worry about looking unstylish, there are so many amazing and stylish looking mini backpacks available, that you no longer have to suffer on the commute to work ever again!

The mini back pack is a seriously stylish way of carrying everything you need, and not suffer from chronic shoulder pain in the process. They come in a wide range of materials, fabrics and patterns to suit any stylish woman’s needs. Take a look at this backpack for example. It is gorgeous, in supple leather and in a stunning, sleek design; you would be foolish not to invest in one. Why not stop at one? The whole collection just oozes elegance.

The benefits to using a mini backpack are endless. Aside from the obvious health benefits, in that you do not cause stress on your skeletal system, they should be also be carried in a certain way to avoid adding unnecessary stress to your lumbar region. A back pack centres the weight of the load on your hips, while spreading the weight evenly across your shoulders. This means that you do not have the pain of carrying all the weight on your one shoulder, which can cause a multitude of health problems as well as continual soreness within in your shoulder. Aside from the pain, not using a backpack can cause poor posture. For any aspiring fashionista, poor posture is a definite no-no.

There are additional benefits too: you can keep yourself much more organised than what you would with a handbag, with handy zip compartments and sections to keep your things, you will be the epitome of organised professional, even if it only extends to keeping your luggage organised!

Back packs do not have to be the staple of college attendees and students. Forget the nylon backpack of yesteryear, with dodgy cotton handles and the ever impending fear that it would break the minute that you put your belongings in them. What is more they have made serious waves within fashion circles world over. The catwalk has displayed their love of the backpack, and with all the major celebrities carrying their load on their backs, there has never been a better time to make such a contemporary fashion choice, that not only looks amazing but also displays clear health benefits.

In short, backpacks really are too cool for school, and that is why so many professional women are opting for them as their luggage item of choice.

Why aviator sunglasses are here to stay

It’s common knowledge that trends change over time, from fashion to food, carpets to cars and entertainment to exercise, which is what makes aviator sunglasses
unique. Whilst their popularity has seen a recent rise, they’ve never really been out of fashion, but how have they kept this up for over 50 years?

First introduced for pilots by Ray-Ban back in the 30′s, they were first in the public eye when several paparazzi snapped General Douglas MacArthur wearing them as
he landed on the beach in World War II.

They were then sold to the public a year later by Ray-Ban but the 60′s gave the aviators their biggest rise in popularity thanks to celebrities choosing to adopt the style. The 80′s gave the aviator another boom with Tom Cruise wearing them in the hugely popular 1986 film “Top Gun”. Since then, countless other celebrities have endorsed the aviator style from the likes of Victoria Beckham, Sylvester Stallone and Nicole Kidman.

Wedding Dresses 2013

If you’re going to be a bride in 2013, chances are you’re looking to find out what’s going to be in style dress-wise. For most women, the wedding dress is the most important consideration of the day, and with fittings, styles, shapes, fashions, colours and designer vs. non-designer options, it can be a hugely time-consuming and involved process.

To those who say ‘It’s just a dress you’re going to wear for a few hours’, we say no!!! A wedding dress is so much more than that. It summarises your tastes, your emotions, the style of your wedding in general, and of course will be something everyone will look at and want to know about for years to come (think of the great-grandchildren pouring over your wedding album). Picking a wedding dress that won’t look out of fashion in five years or fifty years is an extremely difficult task.

Your wedding dress has to be comfortable enough so you enjoy your day, it has to work perfectly with your theme, accessories and shoes, it has to be easy to photograph and look good in all kinds of photos from disposable cameras to professional DSLRs. So, it’s not ‘just a dress’!

Here at Web Sample Sales we tend to focus on designer fashion, including designer wedding dresses. But we’re not opposed to high street and off the peg wedding dresses either! Here are some tips for what’s going to be big in the wedding world for 2013.

2013 wedding dresses

The trends for wedding dresses for 2013 are pretty varied, allowing you to be much more flexible with what you choose to wear for your wedding compared to previous years.

Runway wedding dresses for 2013 include:

  • Color – don’t be afraid to go beyond white and ivory as colored wedding dresses are in for 2013, particularly crimson.
  • Portrait backs and sexy backs – the emphasis is on the back for 2013, so think about what your dress will look like as you’re walking down the aisle.
  • Tulle and Lace – classic and pretty, this traditional fabric can be incorporated into various parts of your wedding dress or simply used for your veil.
  • Keyhole closings – these are big.
  • Convertible wedding gowns – designed so you can remove huge skirts or trains for a slinky reception look without the need for a whole new outift – it’s like a 2 in 1.
  • Peplums – Big in haute couture for 2012, you can use hip-peplums for waist-defining or accentuating regardless of your body shape.

Designer wedding dresses

The ‘ones to watch’ for 2013 when it comes to designer label wedding dresses are:

  • Alexander McQueen wedding gowns – Still popular thanks to last year’s Royal Wedding, Kate Middleton’s wedding dress designer is a great choice for any bride to be.
  • Lace is on-trend and is particularly noticeable in Christos’ and Jim Hjelm’s wedding dresses.
  • Reem Acra’s convertible wedding gown combines a horsehair-trimmed tulle skirt with a bead-encrusted mini.
  • Revisit last season’s Vera Wang. The black and nude collection provided inspiration for 2013′s crimson wave.

Prom Dresses 2012

Prom dresses and ball gowns are on every girl’s mind at this time of the year. Some people want a stunning dress that they’ll only ever wear once – it’s all the memories that are associated with it which means you will never want to wear it again. However, others want to get the most out of their dress and wear it to birthdays, weddings and other special occasions.

Whichever you want to do, you’ll want to make sure you have the latest prom fashions for this year. It’s easy enough to rely on that little black dress, but prom is a competition and everyone wants to stand out. Choosing the style of prom dress is easy – the hard part is not showing up in the same dress as someone else.

Prom Dresses

Buying your dress the year before can help to make sure you don’t turn up in the same outfit as someone else. However, many stores offer the same lines of dresses year after year, so make sure you’re choosing something that is limited edition or has a short run. Occasion dresses don’t vary much in terms of what’s in vogue; simply pick short or long and you’re good. Prom dresses are an exceptional to the rule; it doesn’t matter very much whether they stick to the season’s styles or colours. Go for something you love or something you feel comfortable in: short prom dresses and long prom dresses are equally fantastic on the right body shape.

Prom is something that causes a lot of cat fights and arguments, so don’t let it get to you, especially on the night itself. Remember that no matter how many months you prepare in advance and how much time and money is spent on your hair and make up for the event, you won’t care half an hour after you’ve got there. You’ll be having too much of a good time!

Choosing a prom dress

Make sure you have your shoes and jewelry planned out as well as your dress. If you’re buying a long dress, take it shoe shopping with you and make sure the length falls properly. If your prom dress is too long, have it taken up professionally rather than trying to do it yourself. It’s more costly, but it will look so much better.

Choose your prom dress for 2012 because you love it, not because you have shoes or earrings that would go great with it. The focus will be on your dress, so choose that first and work round it. But remember – prom isn’t all about the dress. So remember to relax and have fun!
