I miss Belle Epoque dresses

Posted by ADMIN

World War II closed many fashion houses in Paris. Couture was among those affected by the re-education program initiated by the French government. German invaders took possession of French high fashion, and even considered the relocation of the haute couture to German cities Berlin and Vienna, both of which had little traditional history of fashion. These were some of the more significant changes in the French fashion landscape.

During those times, models in fashion shows were limited to a maximum of 75, while the time for evening wear was significantly lessened. Day wear was also made skimpier. In the 1940s, coats were limited to no more than 4 meters in length. Blouses were limited to be of at least 1 meter. But despite all these restrictions in place, the fashion industry pushed on, emphasizing humor as a way to defy the foreign powers.

While there were many fashion shops that closed down or relocation during the war, there were a few new names that opened shop. During the World War, women flaunted extravagance by wearing a hat. It was the only way they can do so without earning the ire of the authorities.

Americans took advantage of Paris' isolation to show off their creativity. American designers introduced innovations in the way men wore work clothes. Sportswear among women also became more popular with American designers manufacturing more of these items.

In 1947, couturier Christian Dior made waves with his collection of dresses with tiny waists, and extravagant busts, a style similar to the Belle Epoque.

I miss reading books

Posted by ADMIN

"Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, and The Frog Prince;" these are some fairy tales that I loved when I was a child. At that time, I told my mother to buy these books for me. I think not only about me, but also other children like to read these books. However, now we don't need to buy these books, we can search for them online. Moreover, we can read other information that we want from the internet. I feel that books aren't necessary anymore for three important reasons.

The first important reason is speed. Several years ago when people wanted to read a book, they needed to go to a bookstore. Sometimes it took a long time to go there, but now people can search for information from the internet to read, and it will only take a few minutes. For example, if you would like to make cocktails for your party, you don't need to buy a book. You can search for the recipe online. It helps you to save your time for doing other things.

Have you ever spent one or two hours to find a book that you really want at a bookstore? Sometimes it's not easy to find a book and people need to go back again to the bookstore to buy it. Besides that, some people need to visit several bookstores before finding the copy of the book they are seeking.

on the other hand, you just sit in front of a computer and search whatever you want. For instance, you want to go to Niagara Falls, when you go to the bookstore, you'll see many books which describe Niagara Falls. Often you can't decide which one is the best. Eventually, you'll buy one to read, but you won't know how to get there. On the other hand, if you search for directions from the internet, you'll get directions that start from your home. It's easy to find the proper way on the internet. You just follow directions, and the internet will find the shortest way for you. You will also see interesting places along the way.

Furthermore, if you read some information on the computer, you'll get more details. For example, if you want to know how to cook Asian food, you'll understand the benefit of all ingredients also. You'll get a lot of useful information.

I've presented three major reasons why I agree that books aren't needed anymore. It's more useful to read information on the computer. You won't waste your time buying the book and you won't waste your time going to bookstores. This is an easier way for you to read everything you want, isn't it?

I love ebook

I love my ebook reader because it makes my life simpler. And my ebook reader of choice is the Kindle.

How does it make it simpler, you say? Let me tell you all the cool things it does.

1. I can read at the beach and my book doesn't get all icky from the sunscreen on my hands (it's easy to clean the Kindle)
2. I never have to search for the last page I was on
3. I can read three books at a time and know exactly where I am on each one (actually, I don't have to know where I am, the Kindle remembers)
4. If the book I'm reading is boring, I can switch to any other book in my library
5. I can make notes in the margins
6. I can bookmark passages
7. And I can review my notes and bookmarks in a list
8. I can buy books while sitting on a beach in St. Martin and start reading them in one minute
9. I can download PDFs and Word documents from my computer and read them on my Kindle (saves me from sitting in front of my computer and I can get work done on the beach)
10. I can let my friends know about the great book I'm reading on Facebook and Twitter
11. I don't have to carry a separate dictionary because it's built in
12. I don't have to worry about charging it on vacation because the battery lasts for 2 weeks (no chargers to leave in the hotel room)
13. I can keep reading my great book in the car because the Kindle can read out loud to me (like books on tape)
14. I can carry all my magazines with me too
15. I don't need to carry my iPod because I can store music on my ebook reader and listen while I read
16. I don't have to come off the beach to find an internet connection to download books
17. I figure I save $10 per book so the Kindle pays for itself once I've purchased 25 books
18. No wireless bills because my 3G connection is free
19. More books than any other ebook reader
20. And I can try before I buy with their free chapter previews

Quick conclusion

So you do not have to choose between past and present just to get the best from each to make your life beautiful!
