‘Mushroom Blond’ Hair Is Summer’s Biggest New Trend

The trend of using food to describe our hair colors has grown. Not only do we have toasted coconut, peach cobbler, and cold brew, but the latest trend is having mushroom blond hair. According to Pinterest, this last shade is quickly overtaking the others with searches on the site up by a whopping 308 percent.

Mushrooms may sound a bit bland and boring at first, but from the looks of it, it’s the exact opposite.

Mushrooms colors are soooo interesting!

If you’ve ever studied a mushroom, you’d notice that its colors are multifaceted. You’ll find multiple shades of dark and light brown, even blonde, and the hair color truly reflects those ashy shades you’d find in a mushroom. It’s an in-between color – not quite blonde but not quite brown.

“It’s right in between light brown and dark blond, like an ashier version of brond,” says Stephani Brown, master colorist at New York City’s IGK Salon Soho. As a result, the shade is a great choice for those not wanting a drastically lighter or darker color, yet it gives an edgy, unique look.

“I love the idea of using mushrooms to describe the tone of the hair color,” says Joel Warren, celebrity colorist and founder of the Salon Project. “They have so many different tones of beige and gray that are hard to describe. These tones evolved from the gray and silver trend to a slightly more natural look. The combinations with highlights and low lights gives a beautiful modern look.”

Typically, people want to choose a warmer shade for the summer, but that’s all the reason not to. What better way to stand out than to try something different from the regular? In addition, mushroom blonde is extremely low-maintenance according to Brown.

It’s a more grown-out look which needs a touch up only every three to six months or even up to a full year depending on your hair length. Another reason it’s a great choice for a fun, easy-going hair color this summer!

If you’re considering trying out mushroom blonde for yourself, Brown recommends that you ask your colorist for a subtle light brown or dark blonde ombre that has a variation of both light brown and dark blond pieces.

Be sure to mention the word ashy to keep it from going towards a more traditional blond look. It’s always helpful to bring some photos to give an idea of what exactly you’re going for and to help ensure the product is to your liking.

Ideas For Easy Makeovers For Your Home

Redesigning your living areas can be quite a time consuming and often overwhelming. Have you ever sat down and just stared at an area you want to upgrade but have not found the motivation to get to work?

We have found the best way to deal with your anxiety and lack of motivation is to start with something small.  If you have a large project for a living area, break it up into small “to-do” jobs, you will be amazed how quickly the entire project will move along and each small makeover will give you a lot of satisfaction.

First off, taking a large project and breaking it into smaller jobs will be a great deal more manageable and you will become even more motivated to move on to the next one.  Here are some really great ideas for upgrades that shouldn’t take longer than an afternoon but will deliver excellent results:

A Small Wallpapering Project:

Consider wallpapering just a certain area of your room vs trying to wallpaper the entire area. Consider adding a really nice print to an access wall or maybe the back of a display case. The idea is to create something that will visually draw someone’s attention.

Choose a pattern or color for your wallpaper that will compliment the rest of your room.  One thought might be choosing a wallpaper that has a simple interesting design.  Find something that will work with your décor but not become overbearing.

Using wallpaper on a piece of furniture such as a bookcase or display case that has very plain lines, can spruce it up.  This is a very easy project that you can finish in just a few hours at tops.

Dress Your Furniture Up With New Hardware:

Sometimes, the simplest project can actually have a huge effect.  Why not replace your old handles on your dresser with new, intricate brass or a nice floral design on knobs?  Try a whimsical design for your nightstand such as leather pulls or in a child’s room – animal faces printed on knobs!

If you are redoing your kitchen, there are so many wonderful kitchen themes to choose from for your cabinets.  Handles shaped like tomatoes or lettuce or apples and pears, the sky’s the limit! Maybe your cabinets came out of the fifties and you want them to be retro and modern.  You do not have to go crazy just shop around for modern, sleek designs for the hardware.

Add Some Interesting Artwork To Your Walls:

Artwork has a habit of bringing new life to a room while covering up scratches or imperfections in your painted walls.  You can shop around for artwork or get a little creative and pull out all those wonderful pictures you stowed away and frame them!

Another idea, get a large frame and make a collage of your favorite pictures.  Have a nice simple material for the background, add simple frames to each image and then place them in the large frame.  This small project will not take much time but will give your room a whole new look!

Another idea, have someone make a box with sectionals and place small antiques such as wooden soldiers in each section.

Add Shelving To Display Your Collectibles:

If you are a collector of small teacups, why not have shelves installed on your walls to show them off instead of hiding them somewhere to collect dust.  Really simple floating shelves do not require a lot of work and are quite easy to hang.

The one tool you will need is a stud finder to decide where to hang your collectibles.  Also, depending on their weight, make sure you have the right hardware that will be strong enough to hold the objects.  If you need some advice, talk to someone at your home improvement store.

Add The Magical Touch Of Lighting:

I’m not sure there is anything that adds a more impressive look than new lighting fixtures. Add a new chandelier or wall sconces. Trade out your tired old fifties chandelier with something really modern, sleek, and retro!

You would be amazed by how modern your space will become.  Unless you know how to rewire, it is strongly suggested you bring in a professional who can get the new wiring done in a very short period of time.  If you have an overhead ceiling light, why not trade it in for a really nice fan with lights that matches your décor and colors.

You can have your electrician add a dimmer switch to boot!

Give Your Plants Something To Rejoice In:

Too often, we buy plants and just place them in a corner in the same old pots they came in.  Over time, this is not healthy for the plants due to a lack of needed nutrients and the roots will start outgrowing their space.

Think about placing them in beautiful new planters that accentuate your room and will make your plants very happy! You can choose from ceramic planters, terracotta, or other interesting materials.  If you want to go with colorful planters, pick an accent color that is already a part of your room.

Redesigning your living areas can be quite a time consuming and often overwhelming. Have you ever sat down and just stared at an area you want to...

What to Expect from Fashion in 2017.

In a year that is ahead of us is a whole bunch of designer collaborations, exciting exhibitions and new label launches that are already confirmed. There are some events that you should be aware of…

We are expecting a reminding exhibition of Princess Diana’s era-defining style in February. To be precise, 24th February is the day of opening Diana: Her fashion story. The late princess is an enduring style icon and this will provide a fresh insight of her. One of the things to see will be her Victor Edelstein velvet gown in which she danced with John Travolta in the White House back in 1985. The exhibition will be held at the Princess’s London home, Kensington Palace, where she lived for 15 years.   

Alexa Chung will launch her own label in May. Fans of Chung’s work waited for this news for a long time. After being a fashion plate for years, Alexa will at last launch her own line in spring this year. Her new brand is expected to be a contemporary-priced, ready-to-wear line which was designed by this TV presenter and model all by herself so that we could get a slice of her style.

May will be very busy month for fashion fans, because Balenciaga will take over the V&A. This was announced in October by V&A as the major fashion showcase for 2017. It will be a retrospective of Cristóbal Balenciaga’s work that was titled Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion. 80 years have passed since Mr Balenciaga opened his doors of iconic Paris salon, and the exhibition will feature over 100 of his most innovative and glamorous fashion silhouettes.

In February, there will also be a couple of major designer debuts. Raf Simons has been working for Calvin Klein for some time now, and we will finally get a glimpse of his work. New York Fashion Week will be the place where this ex-Dior designer will make his debut. Another thing to be excited for is the first collection from design duo Monse. They have just taken the helm at Oscar de la Renta. Zayn Malik also has his first collection, which is, at the same time, his first attempt in fashion design that he will be presenting for Versus Versace during London Fashion Week. To see if it will be any good, we will have to wait for another two months.

At the peak of the spring, in April, there will come to a collaboration between Victoria Beckham and Target. US retail giant and Victoria will team up so she could become the next designer with a high street line. This will hit our stores on 9th April. Net-A-Porter should stock the collection in the UK just like when Peter Pilotto collaborated with Target and that makes us happy because we will be able to get our hands on some VB’s designs.

Selena Gomez and Coach will also team up somewhere around September or October. In 2016, Gigi Hadid and Tommy Hilfiger did exactly what Selena and Coach are hoping to achieve in 2017. As a matter of fact, it should probably be even more because next autumn, the singer and actress will collaborate with the all-American label. Their campaign should kick off in winter 2017, also launching a charity design project including a female empowerment organization Step Up.

Is Fashion an Art?

Is fashion really an art? The topic everyone on the world wide web is talking about. Yes, it is! No, it isn’t?

Even in past, history has shown us that people dressed to express themselves. Everything started with ancient Egyptians. Their clothing was filled with a variation of colors, decorated with precious gems and jewels. And it was not only made for beauty, but also for comfort. Also, their clothes have been made to keep them cool while they are in the desert. Then ancient Greeks discovered some other materials and styles. Clothing in ancient Greek has been mainly made of chiton (costume), peplos (women clothes), himation (usually worn over a chiton) and chlamys (some type of short overcoat). And we are still talking about a period of time around fall of ancient Egyptian, Greek and the Roman empire. As humans evolved, and everything around them, so did fashion.

We can see in British culture from the 1830s to 1910s some really interesting changes in fashion, including changes in styles. Clothes were seen as an expression women’s place in society. Upper-class women usually tightly laced corset over a bodice or chemisette, paired with a skirt. The hat was standard formal wear for upper and middle-class men. Woman’s shoes in the early Victorian period (the 1830s) were narrow and heelless, black or white color. The heel on the shoes changed with time, like ethics and value.

Yes, we know, fashion is fashion and art is art. But we live in a modern world where everything is “growing” so fast, and we are humans and our basic need is to express ourselves. So, can fashion also be an art form? Museums are showing fashion just as much as paintings, or other art. Fashion can tell you about history, events, culture, etc. Many of the clothes seen going down the fashion runway don’t have any particular use, and many designers create impractical clothes just because they want to show their creativity, which is exactly what artist do in their craft. Designers are expressing themselves through clothes they made. I agree that there are many big brand names that make clothes that they think is going to be popular, just so they can sell and make money. But still, there are many true artists who express themselves in the way of creation. “A lot of designers collaborate with artists and incorporate features of art into their work such as Yves Saint Laurent and Piet Mondrian in 1965. Yves Saint Laurent’s dress was inspired by artist the Piet Mondrian. It was inspired by Piet Mondrian’s work which mainly consisted of thick black lines and primary colors. In this case, fashion was literally art.”

Fashion is not necessarily about labels, it’s not about brands. It’s something else that comes within the human being. What you wear is how you present yourself to the world, it’s your identity. Especially today, when human contacts are so quick, fashion is instant language. It’s a simple way of saying complicated things.

Now, this look is more of a powerful Goddess one, showing more of a stronger side on the warrior figure. The hair is everything in this picture, even more than the outfit itself. I admire the ringed necklace combined with the pure black dress. The hair looks one hundred percent natural, and the tint of white color makes it ten times more elaborate. For this look, I give it a ten out of ten!

Last but not least, we have the look of the mysterious warrior, hiding like a wolf in sheeps clothing.

The Striped Shirt That Has the World Going Crazy

Do any of you remember back in 2015 when there was an illusional dress that was surfacing the internet, driving all of us insane guessing what color it was? Some thought gold, and others thought navy blue, but either way, we all lost our marbles trying to figure it out. The dress was so popular that it even became a character on the hit game, Crossy Road, and we all were left wondering how this had happened. The theme behind the dress was an illusion on the eyes, and this young ladie’s selfie has us feeling the same as we did way back when.

The selfie starts off with the view of a beautiful girl, and a gorgeous striped shirt, simply looking like herself. It then follows with a few more selfies as the focus comes more to the shirt, and the illusion continues.

girlstripedshirt

As you look into the shirt, the stripes turn into a trippy, headache yielding set of stripes. If you remember from the original tweet above, the shirt started off innocent looking, like a simple shirt from Forever 21. As we zoom into the shirt even more, we come to see that the illusion continues, even as the shirt goes back to its normal state.

With this occurence, people began to go crazy and start fearing that the end of the world was near. Tweeters even went as far and wild as to think Satan was here on Earth. Talk about overdramatic.

At least one user had some common sense, and actually took to her twitter to say something ten times more than hilarious.

That has to be one of the more funny reactions that we have seen yet regarding this illusional phenomena. For anyone with a brain, we can see that this shirt is clearly designed by an intelligent designer who wanted to use optical illusions as a fashion. Gotta hand it to whoever it was, whether or not they intended to start a fire on twitter, they truly succeeded. What a great way to start off 2017; drive the public wild with what seems to be magic in the thread!

How Tech Transformed Designs in London and New York Fashion Week

London Fashion Week started this weekend and September is just ramping up for fall fashion. Aside from newf design trends, it seems that tech world have already infiltrated the fashion industry. New York Fashion Week got the first virtual catwalk and at the other side of the globe, London got its first Hololens fashion show. Here are some of the highlights on how tech have already transformed New York and London Fashion Week.

Hololens Fashion Show in London

VR headsets may be the next trend in gaming but we’re not talking about designer VR headsets.

Special guests of Martine Jarlgaard were in for the world’s first Hololens fashion show. They used Hololens headgear images of the entire 2017 collection. They walked into an empty showroom but were handed special gear to be able to see what isn’t visible to the naked eye.

Unlike virtual reality wherein you’re transported to another world inside the headset, Hololens works by superimposin holographic images to your natural environment. That way, you can still feel world around you, and you don’t have to worry about bumping into walls or other objects as you move around.

The whole collection was first scanned to create the holographic images. Although the designs are static images within models, viewers are able to go around the model and take a look at the outfit 360 degrees.

Burberry, Tommy Hilfiger and Chatbots

Chatbot games are gaining some interest from big fashion brands like Burberry. The strategy was also used by Tommy Hilfiger and they launched a chatbot via Facebook Messenger.

For those who have no idea what chatbots are, here’s a quick intro. Imagine a question and answer game where you have options to choose which way you want to move forward. Now picture that within your messenger and each answer you give determines how the chat will go as it moves further into the chatbot reply tree.

Example, you can answer yes or no on which collection you want to view. You can specify what color or item you want and it will describe the outfit as if you’re talking to a fashion advisor. So far, feedback on this tech have been positive and that some users find chatbots very engaging.

Meanwhile in New York Fashion Week which started earlier this September, it was high tech wearables that took the stage.

TOME and Intel Technology

Luxury designer TOME created a more fashionable accessories lineup with Intel Curie Technology. It helps women stay in track of their health while on the go.

FILA Connected Shoes

Keeping track of your fitness and health is all about gathering accurate and real time data. This is what FILA and Intel Curie Technology worked together in their newest shoe designs.

VOKE and Intel’s VR Livestream

Intel and Voke worked together to create a full 360 degrees virtual broadcast of Mischa’s newest collection. The fashion shows were livestreamed using VOKE’s GearVR app, Samsung VR headset and Intel’s tech . Although it was a completely virtual and new experience, it was a very convincing runway show.

Awesome traveller t-shirt

The three friends with funny ideas, George, Steven and Florian met one day start a work on their t-shirt that makes it easier to communicate in a foreign language when you are traveling. The idea was born when one of them traveled by motorbike in Vietnam, and the bike just broke down.
That same day, after couple of drinks, they came to that crazy idea of the t-shirt that speaks any human language just by having symbols or icons that can be used to communicate with people when you don’t know a word of their language. The same night, they finished the famous shirt with all essential symbols and icons on it, having it available at any time.

“Many times we were confronted with a language barrier that was only to be overcome by drawing signs, symbols or icons on a piece of paper, map, or into the dirt,” explain George, Steven, and Florian to BoredPanda. “We thought it would be great to have an essential set of icons with you, permanently, so that you could just point on whatever you need – and people would understand. Soon the notepad was pulled out again and we started listing more or less essential icons that would have been of great help during not just ours, but basically anyone’s trip.”

ICONSPEAK was founded in and is driven forward since 2015 by three friends making their goals ambitious, brainstorming sessions chaotic, organization comic and results mesmerizing. As the guys said, they are committed to provide all of us with amazing simplicity and honest quality in all their products.

“When were you the last time in a situation where no language or hand gesture that you master was sufficient to get you what you wanted? Imagine you are abroad – in a foreign country, in a foreign culture, maybe while travelling the world. That’s what we did, travelling the world – partially, well the three of us combined almost completely. In the furthest and deepest corners of our world we were repeatedly left with no words, either in breathtaking awe due to the sceneries or in empty silence, due to our lacking linguistic talents. Such situations got us thinking about how to bridge language barriers with utmost simplicity, on a global level. The answer came to us after a remarkable experience in the depths of Vietnamese backcountry ICONs. Because with ICONs, you can SPEAK, you can SPEAK to the world. Simplicity was always a trait that unites us in many forms, call it lazy or genius, but we like to keep it simple. And hence follows our starting point of how to bridge the language barriers of our world: a shirt. Through a shirt you can – in the most rudimentary ways – combine gestures, vocals and mimics to create interaction. A shirt does not need to be recharged and still, you can have it on as long as you please. Furthermore you won’t have to worry that we will send you software updates to your shirt which will make it uncomfortable to wear, slow to wash or any such thing. It’s a shirt. This is where we start, but not where we will stop – the challenges on our way to bridge the language barriers of our world are manifold and will lead us to platforms and mediums other than textile as well…” – they explained on their official page.

What’s your summer style?

Well, according to many clothing specialists and their visions for the upcoming summer, we have made a list of best advices for you.

– Avoid color black

Often it doesn’t really look like a sun-ready look. But if you choose black, try to combine it with big and upbeat earring, which would significantly change the general look.

– Working the margins

You should try to make your outfit look as more summery as it can for this season. The interesting thing to do would be wearing your hair loose with sunglasses, turning up a trouser hem and finally ditch the socks. Even a sockless pair of white tennis trainers or Vans could be a good step towards the summer season.

– Off-the-shoulder top

It can be really helpful with this one if you already have one non-worn from last summer. These kind of tops always save cachet for the next season. Called Bardot tops in some circles, they are still useful have that longevity. Bare shoulders are perfectly suitable for summer and shouldn’t concern you little older ones when it’s about exposing the upper arms. Cold-shoulder tops are also pretty available. For those who find naked shoulders too louche while in air-conditioned office, it’s important to know that putting a cashmere sweater over is totally approved and very acceptable.

 – Rolling up the sleeves

The thing that reminds us of Jackie O on the Cape, a little. But if you make it right, it can be just Jackie O.  There are many girls who just can’t pull off a kaftan top outside of a brochure with some sand dunes, beach huts and blond children. But, it nice to know that the most of them wear a type of relaxed shirt. This season says “yes” to Denim, pale blue is good, white works. Unbuttoning it little bit down to the breastbone, with jewellery can just make the magic. The area of the elbow with little beta, no matter if it’s below or above, should send you right to the Jackie O world.

– Mess about with camisoles and slip dresses

Various motives! Summery and light and semaphore, almost everything to get that sunshine memo. Even better, we’re pretty sure that many of you already have some of these stuff in your wardrobe. A T-shirt under the slip dress will give you look comfortable and avoid the panic with bra-on-display. For those brave ones, it’s totally recommendable to wear a camisole over a shirt, in the spirit of summer layering.

– Check out the stores

Buying one below-the-knee skirt is always a good idea for this season. Which one? Doesn’t matter if it’s printed, pleated, plain or structured. Some may be confused, but you have to admit that there’s something for everyone, every taste.

– Old shoes?

I bet you all have a pair of last years’ leather sandals, that could be just the thing for another season. The answer is definitely no. Flip-flops are not the part of this season’s style. But, the sliders are hot, and easy available on every high street. It can be worn with breezy jogging bottoms, cropped trousers or even a long skirt, which allows dozens of options.

Well, according to many clothing specialists and their visions for the upcoming summer, we have made a list of best advices for you.

Trousers and a silk blazer for any kind of event? Why not!

A friend of mine was invited to a Bond party where the dress code was pretty obvious. All the girls started talking about elegant evening dresses, like some of those that celebrities wore to the Met Gala. It really is that type of party, but why don’t we swap elegant evening dresses with something more casual, what about some trousers, some blazer, maybe a tie?

She’s not in a mood to wear one of those evening dresses, so she asked me for advice. She wants to avoid floor-sweeping designs, not because she doesn’t appreciate the fairy tale princess look, but she feels much more comfortable in something else. Her question is – “What do you think of trousers and blazer, with a bow tie maybe?”. Although it’s still pretty expected for a girl to show up in a dress in those kind of events, and be all elegant, I’m totally supporting her idea. You may ask why? There are many reasons why…

Because there’s many ways to wear it in almost any environment, for any occasion. I believe that blazers have the ability and power to instantly change to tone of your outfit to perfectly suit every situation possible. Of course, it depends on style of the blazer. Some of them can look really great, elegant or casual, paired with any fashion items from your wardrobe. Whe are all individuals and we should all believe in individual style, as we said before it’s freedom, it’s something we should encourage everyone to do.

If we embrace ungendered clothing, it would allow us more freedom to choose and to look better.

We can find example of those who do not directly equate clothing with gender even in 70’s. Diane Keaton was one of those. She has worn suits on the red carpet since her rise to fame in the ’70s. With time, she became an icon because she wore simply what she liked, she felt good in that clothes and I didn’t saw anybody complaining about her. Why should they? Later it proved to be a fashion-forward thinking and it influenced many generations to come.

Olsen twins are also a good example. As the duo became famous designers, they quickly accepted the idea of sophistication with smart tailoring. And what’s the result of their work. Well, whether they walking down the streets or at the Met Gala, they wear quality coats, roomy leather satchels, flats, and oversize scarves and they always look good, comfortable and free! They changed their style and looks in the last 15 years, but it was always kinda unisex, from boyfriend – style button – down shirts, to oversize outwear and noir style clothing.

If the industry makes a smart move, all those “boys wearing suits, girls wearing skirts” events will be different, everyone could be unique, different, more individual.

As Leandra Medine founder of Man Repeller said: ” Getting dressed is no longer about abiding by a specific code so much as it is expressing yourself how you see fit…buy specific pieces that you love and buy them sparsely. ”

 

A friend of mine was invited to a Bond party where the dress code was pretty obvious. All the girls started talking about elegant evening dresses, like some of those that celebrities wore to the Met Gala. It really is that type of party, but why don’t...
