Shopping Fever

A girl, as a girl, would naturally be into shopping. Be it shopping in the mall or merely browsing a catalogue of top-selling brands, shopping is a girl’s life. But there’s a big difference in personal buying by just merely ordering through brochures. The following are the high points and low points of each:

1. Catalogue shopping gives the buyers the best view for their products. By employing professionals to model their clothes, they can give the customers the most attractive look of the products. The best example of this would be for lingerie. Any girl won’t deny that they would most likely buy the type of lingerie fitted on a model’s sexy body. Customers are inspired to see these models in seducing buyers to purchase the product. Compared to lingerie displayed in racks, the catalogue showcases the potentials of wearing the products rather than just being hanged.
2. Product displays are best for bragging high-quality materials used because buyers can actually see, feel, and fit the real thing. You can’t do that in a catalogue because you would just be limited to words and buyers right now are very cautious about the sellers’ talk and advertisements. Giving them the feel of the real thing is concrete and much better than just playing with their imagination.
3. Companies can give detailed information on the their products through the catalogues and these information are really helpful for buyers.
4. Catalogues are for anybody’s convenience. You don’t have to go out to shop, you only need to flip a few pages, dial to order, and your goods will be delivered right at your doorstep. But the downside is you won’t be able to fir it until it arrives.
5. Going to the mall and sashaying along its alleys would burn a few extra pounds and would certainly be a very good way to relieve stress (you can’t have that by merely flipping pages).

Any way you wanna go, be it through catalogues or going out into the bigger and wilder shopping destinations, it’s for every girl to enjoy her shopping experience. Just don’t forget to keep it within your budget!

Eternally Young

"Latest craze" may not be the appropriate term to describe it because blue jeans and denims have been in the world of fashion since its introduction to the market. It has become the "staple" attire of every human being and though it has been primarily produced for men, it has now become an epidemic that is visible to have dramatically taken the wardrobe scene of boys and girls, men and women, of all races in this modern world.

It's confusing to know the origin of denims and jeans. The denim is believed to be one of the oldest fabrics that came from France, "serge de nimes." But there is also one fabric named "Nim," made partly of wool, which is believed to be also from France produced in the 17th century. While "serge de nimes" is made of silk and wool, and "nim" is made partly of wool, "denim" is a cotton fabric.

Jeans, which was originally composed of cotton, linen, and wool to make that durable fabric, came from Genoa, Italy. It was largely produced in Lancashire by 16th century. But during the 18th century, jean was now made solely of cotton and was used to make men's clothing.

The main difference between jeans and denims is that jean is made of two threads with the same color while denim is made of two threads of different colors (but one thread should always be white).

Jeans and Denims have matured through the years. Giant companies like Levi's, Rough Rider Jeans, Lee, Bobson, and the like have taken steps to improve the style and comfort of jeans and denims. To be competent enough, these companies have made sure that they are a cut (or style) above the rest.
