Get Excited for Fall with these Super 70's Fall Ad Campaigns

Whether you can afford to shop designer or only dream of a luxury shopping spree, high-fashion ad campaigns serve as serious style inspiration from the pages of September issues everywhere to free floating images on the internet. While the 70's are in full force this fall, these ad campaigns worked retro vibes into their creative direction, and are a serious throwback to peel through.
Above: Lara Stone posing in retro-wear in H&M's fall 2015 ad campaign.
Gucci's fall 2015 ad campaign featuring new creative director Alessandro Michele's first collection for the brand is promising and as exciting as it is retro. From tied-necks to longer-length dresses, the ads are definitely a flashback to the 70's, imported into the contemporary moment.
Miu Miu took to the city streets for a pseudo-candid campaign this fall that looked like a serious throwback. Steven Meisel shot the campaign on the streets of New York, featuring young and largely unknown actresses in funky retrowear.
Anja Rubik and Julia Stegner took the Chloe aesthetic to a dreamy 70's haze at Versailles for the fall 2015 ad campaign. The long skirts, patchwork, and hanging neckties gave us some serious 70's fall inspiration, all topped off with retro aviators.
While the shots for Dior's fall 2015 ad campaign might not be the most retro on the gorgeous cliffs of Granville in Normandy, the clothes are enough of a throwback alone. If you're ready to work some seriously preppy 70's style, look to these pointy collars for inspiration, pull your hair half-up, and leave it there for the fall.
Lara Stone went beyond retro for H&M's fall campaign, posing with vintage cars in the suburbs, wearing flared jeans and turtlenecks to show how the average woman can go 70's without blowing her whole paycheck this season.

다이어트 프라다
기사 링크 폐션계의 베끼기는 예전에 언급했다시피(참조 1), 너무나 일상화(?)되어 있는 일로서, 당장은 인터넷이라는 공공의 장소에서 공개적으로 망신을 주는 수 밖에 없다. 그래서 그 용도 전문으로 있는 사이트(참조 2)도 있기는 한데, 다음의 사례는 약간 좀 특이한 사례다. 베끼기를 비꼬는 인스타그램 계정으로 "떴기" 때문이다. 이름하여 다이어트 프라다(참조 3). 이 인스타 계정은 2014년 12월에 “passion project”로 시작됐으며, 계속 익명으로 존재해 왔었다. 그러다가 The Fashion Law라는 블로그에서 저자의 정체가 폭로(참조 4)됐다. School of the Art Institute of Chicago 출신의 Tony Liu와 FGXI라는 안경 업체에서 일하는 Lindsey Schuyler이다. 방식은 매우 간단하다. 주로 인스타그램 포스팅에 두 가지 이미지를 올린 다음, 냉소적인 코멘트를 덧붙이는 식이다. (기사 덕분인지 현재 팔로워 수가 20만 명을 넘어섰다.) 그동안 패션 잡지나 전문가들이 말하고는 싶었지만 차마 하지 못 했던 말들을 마구 해 준 덕분인지, 다이어트 프라다는 거의 "패션 경찰"의 지위에 올랐다. 또한 독자들(!)에게 "제보"해주기를 요청하기도 한다. 주로 공격받는 쪽은 아무래도 대기업들, 돌체 & 가바나와의 싸움이 유명하다고 한다. 가바나가 구찌를 베낀 것으로 추정되는(!) 포스팅 때문이었다. 가바나의 공격 때문에, 아예 이들은 #pleasesaysorrytome라고 적힌 티셔츠를 $38에 팔기도 했다. 그리고 가바나에 대해서는 꾸준히 공격 중이다(주로 구찌를 베낀 쪽으로 말이다). 그렇다. 이들은 금전에 눈을 떴다. 구찌도 신랄하게 비판했던 그들이지만, 구찌의 알레산드로 미켈레는 이들에게 휴전(?)을 제의하고, 밀라노 패션위크에 직접 초대했다. "다이어트 프라다"라는 좌석까지 마련해서 말이다. 조건은 구찌 패션위크를 인스타그램에 중계해달라는 것이었다. 그래서 결국 이들의 독립성도 "성공"과 함께 잦아드는 것이 아닌가 싶기는 한데, 그래도 소규모 디자이너 하우스 입장에서는 정말 경찰이기는 경찰이다. 앞서 얘기했듯, 업계 특성상 소의 실익이 별로 없는 까닭에 "망신 주기"가 제일 효과적이기 때문이다. ---------- 참조 1. 패션 카피캣(2016년 3월 15일): https://www.facebook.com/minbok/posts/10153936920759831 2.

Why Is Shampoo Bad For Your Hair? And How To Wash Instead.
Certain chemicals found in some shampoos can be harmful to your hair. While this is not a call to stop using shampoos entirely, it should make you aware that there are alternatives available if you want to pursue them! Having said that, what are some of the negative effects of shampoo? 1. It shortens the life of your hair. That's a fancy way of saying that if you use shampoo, you'll have to wash your hair more frequently, which sounds counterintuitive. Shampoos, in general, can leave a nasty buildup of chemicals on your scalp, which can wreak havoc on your skin over time. Your scalp will eventually become so saturated with these chemicals that it will do strange things like overproduce oils this is probably why my scalp is so greasy. 2. It causes frizz in your hair. This is particularly true for those of us who have curly hair. I know I don't look it based on my profile picture, but my hair can get pretty loopy if left to its own devices. I have noticed that it frizzes up significantly more after washing it with shampoo than when I leave it alone. 3. It will trap you in a viscious cycle. You'd like to stop using shampoo, but if you do, your scalp will go nuts producing oils, making you look completely ridiculous. Try waiting a couple of weeks, your scalp will calm down. Stay strong and don't give in to the urge and shampoo before that. If you want to get away from the shampooing craze, do this when you don't have to be seen in public for a good 2 weeks! 4. It's also wasteful. Using shampoo is apparently frowned upon in the “zero waste” community. This is because most people go through it quickly especially if you have longer hair, and as a result, you'll end up using a lot of plastic bottles. Shampoo alternatives are much more environmentally friendly, as you'll see in a moment. 5. It cannot be washed away. This is a little ironic. Shampoo removes almost everything from your hair except itself. Because your hair is porous, it absorbs whatever is in your shampoo like a sponge over time. You'll have hair loss issues if you use a cheap shampoo or one with chemicals that don't mix well with your scalp. The only way to truly remove the shampoo gunk from your hair is to use a super-strong shampoo designed specifically for this purpose, or to simply wait it out and let your scalp dispose of it naturally. What can you do now that you're aware of some of the negative effects of shampoo? 1. Use the “No-Poo” method. This method essentially eliminates shampoo from the equation. One of the simplest ways to start is to use a small amount of conditioner in your hair while showering instead of lathering up a wad of shampoo and conditioner every time you wash up. Conditioner is gentler on your hair than shampoo and should keep your scalp and strands moisturised without causing too much damage. 2. Use alternative scalp and hair cleansers. Apple cider vinegar can be used as a shampoo substitute. Some people seem to tolerate it better than others, as some have complained that the vinegar smell is unbearable, while others claim they don't notice anything. I suppose it all depends on the individual. In essence, apple cider vinegar acts as a natural conditioner. To combat any salad dressing-like after-smells, this blog suggests mixing two tablespoons of vinegar with water and rosemary. 3. Make use of natural shampoos. Those who said they had no luck with “no-poo” or apple cider vinegar reported success with natural shampoos. These are shampoos made entirely of natural ingredients, as you might expect. To find them, on online shopping sites (just type in "natural shampoos") is your best bet, though I'm sure your local Walmart has a selection of products like this as well. Labels, as always, should be avoided. Always read the ingredients on the back of the bottle to ensure that the shampoo you're considering is truly "natural." What do you have to lose by trying out this new anti-shampoo craze if you have greasy, frizzy hair? It appears to be working for many people, so it's worth a shot! Do speak to your hair specialist if you have any prexisting scalp issues.
Is A Breast Lift Right For You?
Our body ages as time passes. Breasts lose volume and fullness. They droop and make you self-conscious as a result of these changes. Continue reading to learn everything you need to know about a breast lift and the benefits you can expect. What Does a Breast Lift Entail? The breasts are lifted and firmed during a breast lift surgery. A lollipop incision is ideal for breasts that require a minimal bit of lift. If only the areola and nipple need to be elevated, a single incision around the areola can be used to obtain the desired effects. If your nipples and areola are below the level of the inframammary crease, you'll need a third incision to see results. Breast Lift Advantages A breast lift has numerous physical and psychological advantages. After significant weight gain or loss, many women notice that their breasts alter shape and sag. A breast lift can boost your self-esteem, which can improve your quality of life. Let's have a look at some of the physical advantages. Physical Advantages A breast lift has various physical advantages. Without augmentation, a breast lift can give you a larger appearance. This is due to the fact that the surgery makes your breasts appear firmer and larger. You can achieve a more youthful, renewed appearance by elevating your breasts. You can enjoy the results of your weight loss and feel proud of your successes and newly better physique by removing stretched out, superfluous, flabby skin and altering the location of the nipple. Is It True That I'm a Good Candidate? Your medical history will be reviewed by a cosmetic surgeon to evaluate if you are a good candidate for a breast lift. If your nipple and areola are located beneath the inframammary fold or the crease beneath your breast, you may be a suitable candidate for a breast lift. If your nipples appear to be pointing downward and you want them to face forward, you may benefit from a breast lift. Many women who have breast lifts are unhappy with how their breasts seem when they wear a bra. In a bra, a breast raise can make your breasts appear rounder, fuller, and more attractive. It can also treat asymmetry or a tuberous appearance of the breasts that may have developed since puberty or as a result of breastfeeding. If you're unhappy with the size of your breasts after your breast lift, talk to your doctor about a breast reduction or breast augmentation with fat. What Should I Anticipate? It will take a few months for your newly shaped breasts to settle into place after your breast lift. The benefits, on the other hand, are long-lasting. Your body will continue to age and be affected by gravity, but you will be able to enjoy the results of your treatment for decades. It is safe to nurse after a breast lift, although childbearing, breastfeeding, or gaining a lot of weight can make the treatment less effective. Maintain an active lifestyle and a healthy weight for the greatest outcomes.

Let's get started. 1. Brand reliability Don't fall into the traps of hefty discounts. Always buy jewellery from a trusted brand. But how can you find out if the brand is reliable? Check the online reviews on the website and other platforms as well. Read some news related to the brand. The user interface of the website can also say a lot. Well-established brands have a user-friendly interface due to numerous feedbacks and updates. You can always ask for referrals from your friends and family who have experience in online jewellery shopping. Check the reliability of popular brands too. 2. Pricing It doesn't matter if you are a first-timer or buying jewellery for the hundredth time. The price of jewellery keeps on changing. Every piece of jewellery is unique, so you cannot compare the price with other online jewellery stores. But you can always cross-check it by going through the information of the product. It contains details about the metal weight, precious stone weight, their cost, making charges etc. You can cross-check it with the rates declared by the jewellery associations, compare the making charges with other products of the store and of course, discounts. During festival seasons, you can purchase your favourite jewellery at a heavy discount. 3. Purity Nobody likes to buy an artificial piece of jewellery at a rate of original. That's why the government has made so many rules, identification marks, and certifications. Before making any purchase, always check these things. The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) is a government agency responsible for certifying and hallmarking gold and silver jewellery. For diamond jewellery, you can check for certifications issued by GIA, INGEMCO, AGS, HRD, or other reputable organizations. Always buy your jewellery from a genuine platform that follows all government rules. Hallmarks and certifications are a symbol of the quality and purity of jewellery. 4. Return and exchange policy Suppose you want to return or exchange the jewellery after purchasing it. You got the wrong size, it doesn't look good on you, you received a damaged product, or it's too different from what you have expected. No matter what the reason is, your return experience should be hassle-free which you can ensure by reading the return and exchange policy before making the purchase. Every jewellery store goes through a different process while returning the product. The time period, refund policy, terms and conditions for successful return may vary from company to company. That's why it's a must to go through the policies before purchasing. 5. Delivery No purchase is complete until the product reaches your doorsteps and you have cross-checked it. Insured delivery is as important as any other part of the purchasing process. Delivery policies differ from company to company. Some may take 2–3 business days, while some may take even more. Custom jewellery takes the most time to deliver. Most jewellery stores offer a tracking ID so that you can track your order either from the official website or any other third-party company that has the responsibility of the safe delivery of your jewellery. Always buy jewellery with an insured delivery policy. 6. Secure payment While the shopping is done online, the payment will also be made online. Making an online payment is as risky as it sounds. That's why you should always check for a secure payment connection. There are many options available to make the payment. You can use your credit card, debit card, net banking, and many jewellery stores also offer cash on delivery. EMI options are also available. Whether the payment is small or big, make the payment with SSL encryption only so that your banking information will be safe and secure. Other than these, make sure you receive a proper invoice with detailed information about the charges. Check the jewellery after you receive it for proper sizing, damage, any dissimilarity in colour or design from the product you ordered, etc. Jewellery is close to our hearts, but these little precautions will save us from a nightmare. With these simple steps, you can enjoy your shopping experience without any worry. Follow these easy guidelines and you are all set to explore that perfect piece of jewellery. Happy Shopping!

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Many patients ask us, "How does laser hair removal work?" But, more often than not, what they really want to know is, "Is laser hair removal safe and effective, and will it work on me?" Laser hair removal may sound like a terrifying procedure that involves shooting a laser gun at your skin like something from a spy movie. However, this is not how laser hair removal actually looks. Laser hair removal is becoming increasingly popular, and it's easy to see why when you learn how effective it is. We'll answer your questions here so you can make the best choice for your lifestyle and skin. Laser Hair Removal Is Safe Obviously, the most important question to ask whenever you try a new skin treatment is whether it is safe. When you're out in public, everyone can see your skin. People are usually scared of the word "laser" when it comes to laser hair removal because it sounds dangerous. The truth is that the lasers used in laser hair removal are extremely effective at destroying only hair follicles while leaving the rest of your skin unharmed. The US FDA strictly regulates all lasers used for hair removal to ensure their safety. Hair removal lasers are referred to as "lasers" because they emit extremely concentrated light. This specialised light is absorbed by your hair follicles, which convert the light energy into heat. Heat harms your hair's follicle, which is responsible for hair growth. This targeted damage to the hair follicle is what removes unwanted hair and reduces the likelihood of it growing back. Hair removal lasers are designed to target melanin in the hair. Melanin is the pigment that gives colour to your body hair. The laser targets the hair from the shaft down into the follicle by using the contrast between the melanin and your skin. Because laser hair removal works by reducing the ability of your hair follicles to regrow hair, it must be done gradually. The fact that the procedure is done over time contributes to the procedure's safety because the laser's level is low enough to damage only the hair follicles and not the surrounding skin. Laser Hair Removal Is Worth Your Investment Laser hair removal requires an investment of your time; however, when you consider how long the results will last, it is relatively inexpensive. Consider how much time and money you spend on your current hair removal method when deciding whether or not laser hair removal is a good option for you. For example, if you shave your legs, try keeping track of how much time you spend shaving each week. Then figure out how many razor-head replacements you go through in a week. Then multiply this cost by the number of weeks and months in a year to get the current, annual cost of hair removal. The Time Commitment Laser hair removal can take anywhere from 2 to 6 sessions, depending on your skin and hair type. The length of each session is determined by the size of the area being shaved. Small areas, such as the upper lip or armpits, can take 5-15 minutes, whereas larger areas, such as your legs or back, can take up to an hour per session. You can expect to wait 4-6 weeks between sessions. This is due to the fact that hair grows in cycles, and the laser is most effective at killing your hair when it is actively growing. One of the most common mistakes people make with laser hair removal is going to a couple of sessions, seeing a reduction in hair growth, and then failing to return for their remaining sessions. What is actually happening when you notice this initial reduction in hair growth is that your hair is in a dormant period and will re-grow quickly once this cycle is completed. That is why it is essential to attend the recommended number of sessions. How Much Money Do You Really Spend? The average cost of laser hair removal is between $300 and $500. However, this varies greatly depending on the size of the area you're removing hair from and the number of sessions your hair requires. Many facilities offer financing for aesthetic treatments. The initial cost of this hair removal method may appear to be high. Laser hair removal, on the other hand, is expected to provide months to years of smooth skin at a time. If you multiply the amount you currently spend on shaving or waxing over months and years, the cost is likely comparable to what you'll pay as a one-time fee for laser hair removal. You may be wondering why, if laser hair removal works so well and is so inexpensive, not everyone is doing it. The truth is that there are numerous misconceptions about laser hair removal that deter people from using it. How to Get Ready There are things you can do to prepare your skin for a healthy laser hair removal session, as well as things you can do to care for your skin after each session. The best way to decide whether to commit to laser hair removal is to speak with your skin specialist about your hair removal options.
