OnDemand manufacturing may have just recently began growing in popularity, but serial entrepreneur Pablos Holman was cracking the market for years!

Holman, an American businessman, has long been manufacturing some eclectic tights on demand… Enter: Bombsheller!

The range of quirky, customizable leggings come in a range 10 sizes, and enable customers to choose from thousands of pre-selected designs (with the option to upload their own). Each pair is digitally printed, cut, sewn to shipped in as little as 24 hours…

“It took months for classical fashion business to become the final product,” reflects Pablos as his company Bombsheller continues to make waves in the “wearable technology” world.

The idea behind Bombsheller came when the computer expert [Pablos] decided that he wanted to break into the fashion market, whilst connecting it with his main passion, technology. “It will be the first programmable clothing factory,” Holman previously mentioned in an interview with The Independent.

Bombsheller continues to go from strength to strength, and will forever remain as one of the first innovators in OnDemand manufacturing – especially where fashion’s concerned.

My favourite underrated brand of fashion is… Irregular Choice.

The way I’d describe it? If Camden was a brand of clothing, this is it.

Their lines are quirky, cool and very bold. Just look at this trainer.

One of my favourites.

 

 

 

Fascinators are like light-weight headbands which are used to partially cover the head, and, in most cases, they are like a substitute to the traditional hat. In earlier days they were worn on formal occasions such as weddings or horse racing. Now, you can find women wearing them even in casual meetings and outings as a fashion accessory. Still have no idea about what fascinators are? Then try to recall the royal wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton. They wear the fascinator in their wedding party and you can even find some fascinator in every western wedding party. Most of the female guests were wearing them. Now a racing fascinator is the one which is generally worn for racing events.

What is the relation between the racing and the fascinator?
Racing originated several centuries ago with the advent of the monarchs and kings. It still remains just as popular event today. Racing involved a lot of money and it was considered a game of the rich. The women, who came to see racing wore fascinators. With the passage of time it became a tradition and racing fascinators became a rage. Since the rich group of people wore the racing fascinator, the fascinators became a mark of status, fashion and class. From the kingdom to the current time, women use the racing fascinators to execute status and these fascinators not only increase their status, and project them in a proper way, but the racing fascinators can also protect their hair from dust and dirt.

So why wear a racing fascinator?
• It can provide great depth to your outfit. Does your outfit lack a little something, but you can’t figure out
what it is? Just wear a racing fascinator and you will find a changed look instantly.
• It won’t matter even if the rest of your outfit is boring because the fascinator will keep the attention.
• Racing fascinators need not be exclusive to racing and people can use them on other events too.
• They make you look fancy and attractive.
• You can showcase your creativity and personality by customizing your racing fascinators. Fascinators are always considered as a best fashion accessory and people can easily carry them.

How to wear them correctly?
• Usually racing fascinators are worn at the right side of your head. So, unless the design is symmetric, make sure that the fascinator is on the right side.
• The color of the fascinators should be lighter than your outfit or you can choose the same color fascinators for your racing events. (This is a bendable rule and exceptions can be made)
• Choose a fascinator that matches your face structure and jaw line.
• A suitable pair of earrings and a neat hairstyle is compulsory. Long, hanging earrings may distract the attention from the fascinator and you can wear some diamond studs with your racing fascinators.

• Make sure the fascinator fits your head and is suitable and appropriate. It should not be too large for you. You can find different types of fascinators available in the market and you can choose the best one according to your face style such as if you have round face then you can choose the rectangle fascinator. For more details, you can contact the fascinator designers and they will assist you to choose the best one for your upcoming event.

Often racing fascinators are expensive and sometimes even cost more than your entire outfit. So, research well and pick them with care. Fascinators definitely bring a positive energy to the room. They make heads turn. So, turn your “Mad Hatter” mode on and go get yourself a racing fascinator.

It’s the most…. Wonderful time… of the YEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA-R! 🎵

It’s CHRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIISTMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS! 🎶

Wheew! 😅 … that was a workout for the ol’ diaphragm & toes, get me?!

(I think I’m drunk on my own saliva #TooMuchInspiration)

Today’s my first day of annual leave and I’m spending it blogging. Good luck to all of you, you’re REALLLLLYY in for it, today! I’d press the red “x” button soon, if I were you. ☺️ Save yourself!!!!!! 🌽💚

So, like, Christmas Jumper Day occurred on the 15th… Didn’t it? The answer is yes, yes it did. I turnt up for the occasion in and around a Christmas jumper – from Debenhams.

Debenhams is a British department store. Then again, it’s probably isn’t even British, ’cause like – sorry to break it to you, but – I ain’t the founder or connoisseur of the whole rigamarole of Debenhams (as a company) thing. All I know is, I go there, buy stuff and leave. That’s a universal, yet also British, thing.

Places you can find a Debenhams = England (definitely), Ireland (probably), Scotland (again, probably) and Whales (probably not). #BobMarleyAndTheWailers HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! #FreeWillly

(How have I not dyed – my hair – yet????) < one of life’s greatest miseries or mysteries, depends on which way you look a tit.

Back to Christmas jumpers, which I’ve yet to try jumping in… Maybe tomorrow ’cause I heard tomorrow’s a  great day for jumping to stuff – like: CONCLUSIONS! 😇

Hope Bae ain’t married yet because I’ll tell you something for nothing… “WHAT HAVE YOU…” is for THINGS not PEOPLE. Don’t let PEOPLE have Bae, because I might do something like cry myself to sleep and watch Bridget Jones. #WEEPING!

OMG! Bridget Jones makes herself look like a spinster when she gets more action than me. What the fudge? Good luck to her is what I’m saying!

Why do I keep getting side-tracked?! Christmas. Jumpers!

I bought an “All the Jingle Ladies” jumper as reference to that special Baeoncé not yet in my life and it’s definitely the best Christmas jumper I have ever purchased. 👑🎄🎅

This jumper from The Collection sparkles with festive charm. Made from a super-soft knit, this lightweight piece features an ‘All the jingle ladies’ slogan embellished with sequins and bells that chime.

Debenhams have won at the Christmas jumper range competition this year.

When you are all ready to set the stage on fire with your ballet performance but the only thing missing is the perfect dress you visualised yourself to be wearing. It can be an addition to this frustration if all the local ballet stores just do not have the type of dress you want. To avoid all this confusion, it is a great idea to look for the dress you want on an online ballet store. An online ballet store has a wide variety of designs and styles available as it is functioning on a large scale. For people who have never shopped for ballet clothes online, it may seem to be a little confusing, but in reality, it is extremely simple.

Online Ballet Store

Here are a few tips for beginners to get a perfect outfit from an online ballet store:

  • Ensure that you are up to date with your measurements: You need to know your body measurements accurately. In a local store, you can just try on an outfit and decide the fitting size. But that would not be possible in an online store. So, you will have to take the help of your measurements and the size chart to determine the size of your required outfit. As you may already be aware that the sizing of various manufacturers may vary, do not neglect the size chart. Always compare the size chart provided on the website of the online ballet store and only then place the final order. If you place an order for the wrong size, the outfit may fail to fit as required.
  • Read the details of the outfit: Do not get lured by the pictures of the outfit. Read all the details of the material provided along with it. The outfits may appear attractive in the pictures but may not be of the cloth material that you require. So never get carried away just by the pictures. Also look for all the other details you may require.

  • Do not shy away from asking questions: Just like a local store, an online ballet store has several representatives available to solve your queries about their products. So, if you have any questions of the features of any outfit, ask them straight away. They will help you out and thus, you can have a happy shopping experience.
  • Go through the customer reviews and research materials: Ensure that you go through the customer reviews of the product. This is a feature that is not available in local stores. So why not take advantage of it? Look at the reviews to determine how satisfied the customers who have already bought it are. This will give you a clear idea of the quality of the outfit. Also, look into the type of material. It would be really frustrating to receive a dress that looks amazing but feels like sandpaper on your skin. As you are unable to touch the fabric and distinguish the texture of the outfit by looking at the pictures on an online ballet store, it would be advisable to familiarise yourself the fabric content before hitting the buy now button.

 With these tips, you are all set to buy your perfect new ballet outfit from an online ballet store. All you need to take care of is the date of delivery of the product. As it is an online store, it may take a little time for the item reaching you after you have ordered it. So, make sure you do not procrastinate on the buying process and treat it as a priority instead. Make sure you look into the return policies on the online ballet store and schedule your purchase with a margin of a few days before the performance.
