Anyone who reads the "Sunday Styles" section of the New York Times – or its equivalent in London's Sunday Times, Toronto's Globe and Mail, Sydney's Morning Herald or Melbourne's The Age – knows that it is once again in vogue for gentlemen to go down on one knee and proffer a ring when proposing marriage. Traditionally, engagement rings are silver rings, or are made of platinum or gold, and bear a diamond. But in this recession, who can afford a diamond? Given the state of most western economies, today's practical gents and ladies may well prefer to save their money for a mortgage.
Nevertheless, a silver ring is part and parcel of the engagement process. Since even the least romantic male knows his beloved expects an engagement ring, no sensible gent will listen for a "yes" without sliding a silver ring onto his lady's finger. It's well known that silver is valuable and affordable. But how to get around the vexing problem that diamonds are quite dear – in every sense of the word?
A unique silver ring option is a silver ring inlaid with a semi-precious gemstone. In fact, choosing a silver ring with a gemstone is apt to impress and delight the newly-engaged woman: it's innovative, colorful, charming, unusual – and eminently practical. Here are some ideas for silver and gemstone rings that make a terrific stand-in for the traditional engagement diamond:
Sense and sensibility: Another unique silver ring option is to choose a silver ring bearing a gemstone that carries the beneficial energetic properties you'd like to confer on your beloved. Both the carnelian and the topaz promote fidelity, and look wonderful when set off by a silver ring setting. And nothing could be more apt as an silver engagement ring than a silver ring bearing a peridot, a gemstone that is thought to promise marital happiness.
The fedora is a soft, brimmed hat with a creased crown that got its start in the late 1800’s and went on to become the iconic hat style in the first half of the 20th century. When most of us think of fedoras, we picture gangsters in the Al Capone era, Frank Sinatra, the Blues Brothers, and Jimmy Stuart in “It’s a Wonderful Life.”
In the mid 1900’s, men’s hats fell out of style, and so did the fedora. But then along came Indiana Jones and the Fedora got a new life. Today, fedora hats for men are very popular and stylish.

Being someone who's fondest memory of computer games was pushing the spacebar as fast as I could on my Spectrum whilst playing Bad Dudes vs Dragon Ninja, I wasn't that fussed about a gaming vest. Oh how wrong was I. Simply donning the 3rd Space Gaming Vest made me feel like I was about to go into battle - tightening straps and securing clips. Plugging the vest in was simple.
There is a cable that attaches to an air compressor (don't think "Hey, I'll go make a cuppa!" without unplugging yourself or you will drag your computer and cables with you) and a cable that connects to your computer via the USB port. Simply plug yourself in, put in a game ('Call of Duty 2' and 'Incursion' are included in the box) that features 3rd Space technology and let the fun/ sheer horror commence.

The graphics and sound are great, although I didn't get past 1 minute without jumping around as if I had fleas in my pants. I duck in shoot em up's so I was hopeless. As soon as an alien popped up I had to do everything in my power to stay where I was as the 3rd Space FPS Gaming Vest vibrated into action. Not only does the gaming vest vibrate on impact, it actually knows where you were hit (front or back) and what you were hit by (bullet, punch etc) which affects its sensitivity.
There are sensors all over the front and back of the 3rd Space Gaming Vest to give a realistic feel to the game play. Although the air compressor did get a little noisy for a couple of seconds whilst it re compressed, this doesn't put off the fact that this is a seriously amazing piece of kit. Add this to your computer gaming guns and you have yourself a fantastic day. The 3rd Space Gaming Vest is compatible with Windows XP or higher and plugs into the mains, so no batteries needed. Easy to set up and a must for any serious gamer!

If you are a driver, then what kind of glasses do you need? Today let me give you some suggestions that would help you when matching your eyeglasses. First, if your eyesight isn’t very good, then you need to match a pair of eyeglasses which will correct your eyesight in order to let it achieve the lowest driving standard.

If there isn’t any problem with your eyesight, as the drivers must face the dazzling light of the sun in the daytime, they’d better wear a pair of sunglasses. They must choose the right sunglasses according to the different individual styles, color and density. And the sex will affect the different choice of colors of the lenses.
It is different to drive at night and in the daytime. The most important difference is the reduction of the contrast. The low luminous flux will let the pupil expand to 4mm to 7mm. In this case, the concentration of eyes is obvious insufficient. At this time, the drivers will often complain that they can’t see things clearly and they don’t have the confidence to guarantee the security.
Therefore, the drivers can wear the special-purpose glasses to enhance the contrast of the air clarity. Besides, it can also prevent the stimulation from the opposite vehicle’s light in order to let the drivers drive more safely.
Amazing stylish designs in today’s eye glasses frames are quickly becoming the hottest fashion accessory of the year. More than a purse, a pair of shoes, or a pencil skirt, fashion frames are the first thing a person notices. For this reason it is important to choose eyewear carefully.
Eyewear has come a long way from the thick lens and black frames standard in past generations. But, retro is always in and a new thinner lens can be found in updated, stylish black frames that match today’s hip fashion attitude.There are a multitude of shapes, styles, and designs available in eyewear. A person should determine which glasses to purchase based on her fashion sense and needs.

So Many Options With AttitudeIt may seem overwhelming when first faced with choosing a pair of spectacles and faced with all of today’s options. Hundreds of textures, colours, and styles ranging from funky to demure make it difficult to decide on just one pair. It is always helpful to keep a few points in mind when shopping for glasses.* Why are the glasses needed? Will they be worn periodically or all the time?* Hair colour, eye colour, and shape of face* Colour likes and dislikes, predominate colours in wardrobeAnd, don’t forget attitude! When choosing fashionable frames it is important to choose frames that match attitude.
For example, if a person wants to express their desire to be a power player or to jet around the world, a wrap around frame or larger frame will match her attitude. Or, if an inner lady is looking to break free, the pair of dainty pastel glasses is perfect.Amazing stylish designs in today’s frames for eye glasses include reading glasses, sunglasses, and spectacles. Reading glasses are becoming more and more popular as baby boomers begin to age and develop Presbyopia, a condition where text blurs for people beginning around middle age.

Stylish and PortableFashionable reading glasses are compact and can be easily stored for portability. They also come in many designs. Their frames are super lightweight and the lenses are thin. One unique style of reading glasses is the size of a credit card. It fits into a purse or wallet and is available whenever needed.

Who would have thought that an item that was first introduced during WW2, has been used to repair such diverse items as jeeps, firearms, air conditioning ducts , as well as, to perform repairs on the Apollo 13 space flight, could become a useful item (yeah well it seems to have been that for nearly 60 years), that oozes street cred?

Ducti have managed to turn duct tape into a necessity for fashion conscious young people.
Eyebrows, certainly, must have been raised when the original Ducti wallet hit the scene. “ A wallet made out of duct tape, hmmm ookaay” but, they quickly increased in popularity with a generation not overly impressed with leather wallets, similar in look and design to the one’s their dad’s and his dad before him have used for years.

Ducti wallets were like a breath of fresh air. For a start it came in silver (not brown or black leather), had matching nickel rivets, was tough and hardwearing, could be individualised with wallet tattoos, could be worn with a chain (which lessened the chance of losing your hard earned cash) and, lastly, did not look anything like a girlie purse. The Ducti original wallet line, also, includes the Triplett, which not only holds all your cash, but, your credit cards and id, too, and the coin wallet, which has a zipped section for all that loose change
Ducti have remained right up to the minute with the addition of glow in the dark stripes (ideal to grab attention in nightclubs and bars), checks and reflective strips on their Ducti hybrid wallet range.
So, Ducti managed to give a boring item like a wallet some much needed street cred and then happily decided they had arrived and sat back and let the good times roll? Not a bit of it. Ducti had a plan. If you can make a fashion statement with a wallet and duct tape, what else could you re-invent?

What about watches? The Gents Tapebomb watch combines Ducti good looks with precision, toughness and reliability and the Ladies Pink Lady watch comes in pink, but, practically begs you to discover if the wearer is pink and girlie all the way through or if there is a little steel with the softness. Might be fun finding out.
Ducti have further increased their credibility by providing messenger bags that are the latest fashion item for, not only, the rich and famous, but, us mere mortals that like to be right now, this minute when it comes to our fashion tastes.
Adventure Avenue are a young dynamic company that keeps their fingers on the fashion pulse and as such stock and supply a whole range of Ducti products.

Why is it that a vintage womens red velvet hat can make women very sexy? Is it because of things in the past? I don't know except it just does. Hats add a slight mystery to the women who wears them today. Though a red retro hat is very seldom worn today as an accessory, they can still add to a woman's sex appeal. Young women today are missing out on a choice to look even better.
It seems that the young women of today culture have no interest in dressing up. To them dressing up is putting on a clean pair of jeans with or without holes as long as it is clean.
Some of the old hats were huge and I mean huge. They were so large that they would be floppy hats because of the weight would cause them to fall down. A woman could take the rim of the hat and cover her face with only her eyes showing. With a twinkle in her eyes, she could give you the come hither look. You just don't see that today.If you read your history, you know the flapper hat was very much part of dressing up during the roaring 20's. A woman wouldn't leave her home without wearing her black flapper hat.

The man was always seen with his fedora. Mens fedora hats are still popular even today.Remember the pill box hat? What about the Charleston hat? You couldn't go dancing without dressing up in your fancy dress and put on your Victorian hat just made to do the Charleston. Lots of beads on the dresses as well on your velvet epaulet hat. Maybe you added a few feathers which were always a great finishing touch to your ensemble.As the time changes, so did the hat styles. In the 60's some women turned to Retro Gray Woven Fedora hats.
The fedora has light appearance. It provides an accessory but it doesn't overwhelm the overall look that the young woman has put together. It adds to touch of sophistication. Fedora come in all kinds of colors as well as velvet, straw, and heavy cloth. A fedora can be shaped to exhibit the personality of the woman who is wearing it. If I sound like I am missing some of the styles of yesterday, I guess I am. It seems quite strange that an aging baby boomer would like to see women wear more attractive hats.
Maybe it is because that today's dress many times doesn't leave a lot to the imagination and a return to years of some modesty adds an element of mystery to the woman sex appeal. Is she trying to tell me something with the hat? Is it saying she is available. I guess we will never know since a baseball cap pretty much tells me, I didn't have time to fix my hair or it is dirty so I am covering it up with a cap.
Pants which fall just above the ankles are referred to as Capri Pants. They are over 3/4th of your leg's length. Capri Pants are normally worn by ladies and girls. At times ¾ pants for men also denote Capri Pants. But in this article, we are going to discuss about Capri Pants for women and women only.
With the rising fashion, Capri Pants have become a fashion Statement in the 2000s.
When we talk of Capri Pants, length should first come to our mind before selecting. Extreme caution needs to be exercised on the length of the Capri. When you lose the right length, you lose the Capri status. The right length determines whether it is a Capri or a Pants or a Knee High Pants. It also decides your style. Capris with vertical stripes were popular. Now Capri pants are coming in different colors with prints.
As for any apparel or lingerie, the fit should be given its due importance for a Capri too. For any girl or a woman, Capri Pants are the must have in her wardrobe. Capri is the one which can be worn for all seasons and for all occasions.
While finalizing the color of the Capri, freeze it after checking your wardrobe needs. As for the fabric, it goes with the season. For e.g., if you wish to wear it for summer, go with cotton.Accessories are the second most important thing for a woman. With Capri, I prefer flat shoes to heels. Wear a belt in contrast to your Capri.
