The English Professor

9 Dec

I have to tell you the story of an old school style that has been a revisiting hot trend in fashion. It is also a close relative of the School Boy and the Prepster, but unlike its kin the English Professor is more adult. This trend has a much more gentlemanly vibe. I must say from the prospective of a lady, there is nothing more seductive than a gentleman. I know that most of you have fantasized about being the hot professor who is the object of all his students’ affection. Well now you can at least invoke that dapper sophistication with Ralph Lauren‘s Ruby Tweed Run Collection available on http://www.rugby.com. “Eclectic layers of British inspired tweed, Shetland and corduroy, along with limited edition accessories, capture the spirit of the Tweed Run cycling event.” The Tweed Run is an event where a group of bicyclists ride through the center of London. The cyclists are obliged to sport traditional British attire. If you’re into the Prepster or School Boy, then I recommend trying on the English Professor for the similar style and the unbelievable selection of clothing from the Ruby Tweed Run Collection. I love the Glen Plaid Cambridge Wool Vest, Herringbone and Shetland Elbow Patched Cardigans, twill caps and Ivy League feel ties. Best of all the Ruby Tweed Run Collection is affordable with prices ranging from $39.50 to $898. The design is classic high quality fabric paired with slim modern cuts. This style is   dashing as it is a steadfast classic. Perhaps now you’ll be equally as classy and mesmerizing to the ladies as the hot professor.

Bed bugs

Taming the itch

'1 bedbugs-bedbugs-bedbugbitecare'

Bed bugs are notoriously difficult to detect and even more difficult to eradicate. They are nocturnal insects that feed on human blood. They live in bed sheets, bookshelves, couches, bed frames; just about anywhere they can get access to blood. Most often, they bite human hosts while they are sleeping, and so the host does not feel the sensation of being bitten. Because of this, the bed bug can feed repeatedly and for long periods of time. This is why a person rarely has one bed bug bite, but dozens.

Cabin Fever

By: Samantha Dudhnath

I am completely stuck in cabin fever mode now.  I don’t know about you, but the slushy grossness of the dirty snow makes me nauseous, and the off gray sky is making me super depressed.  And it’s only February.  Without a doubt more snow is coming.  So what’s a girl/guy to do during this dark period?  Why not tap into your creative side.  Even if you say you’re not an artist, just go for it.  Don’t hold anything back.  Here are three ways I unleash my creative side:

Chocolate might be good for you

But there’s a catch

By:  Anya Martinez

'1 cadburybar-chocolatemightbegoodforyou-healthcare'

It was a dream come true for chocolate aficionados when they heard the news that chocolate could benefit their health.  In 2004 researches reported that consuming dark chocolate and cocoa improves the function of blood vessels. In a newer study, consumption of cocoa resulted in improved vascular responsiveness in people aged 18-77. It is believed that flavinoids (an antioxidant) in chocolate causes vascular improvement.

Lauryn Hill

Miseducated genius

' 1 laurynhill-miseducatedgenius-music-wyclefjean'

My artist of the week spotlight will shine on Lauryn Hill who I believe to be a beautiful, gifted and talented woman. Hill’s music has a personal signature that marks it as distinctly hers. She takes ownership of her craft, just as she does her style. We all remember her time with the Fugees, and their hits like Killing Me Softly and “Ready or Not” but it was with her 1998 release of her debut solo album “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” that she made her name unforgettable on the music scene.

Obviously, by now you know that I am into street style from all over the world. To me fashion is a creation of art, and you can get really intricate with it, or not.  You don’t have to be into fashion, but guess what?  Just by wearing your everyday clothes you are in fact into fashion.

Item Of The Week

31 Jan

 

This week’s item of the week comes from 21 Men.  Hats.  I can’t get enough of them, and I sure as hell like a guy wearing one.  Fedoras are one of my favorites, and I’m telling you you’ll look sharp in one.  This one adds a little flair with an old time black and white plaid, with a patterned ban around it.  The women will love you in it.

Avant-garde =  trademark of modernism

By: Samantha Dudhnath

avantgarde_fourfront1602

What is avant-garde?  What does it have to do with fashion?  Well, it has a lot to do with fashion, art, culture, and lifestyle.  Avant-garde pushes against the social norms and boundaries that we see on a ‘day to day’ basis.  It explores a different type of beauty then what we are not used to seeing.  Avant-garde is said to be the trademark of modernism.  It is also considered to be anything that is a rebellion ahead of the times.

This week’s item of the week is a t-shirt featuring the one and only Clint Eastwood.  I don’t care what you say, but Clint Eastwood is the man.  Wear him on a dark gray shirt featured from “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.”  If you’re going “huh?” right now I suggest you check out that classic movie, and put your Netflix subscription to good use!
