    3716 words - 15 pages

One product I believe is crucial to most humans is clothing. Everyone buys clothing at least once in their lives. Everyone has their own decisions and assumptions as to picking the types of clothing to choose.

    History Of Fashion

    5507 words - 23 pages

    The period between 1901-1910 is often called the Edwardian Era after Queen Victoria's successor, King Edward VII. Sophisticates and the French also refer to this time as La Belle Epoque, or "Beautiful Age," as there was a definite leaning toward classical aesthetics. It was an era of beautiful clothes and the peak of luxury living for a select few: the very rich and the very privileged through birth. In retrospect we can see it is an era very separate from the 20th century despite belonging at its start. The attitudes and lifestyles of two decades were swept away by war and because the war wa

    BOB DYLAN IN HIS PRIME From the early ‘60s until now, Bob Dylan has written a plethora of amazing songs, but none were as progressive or as influential as those released in the years of 1965 and 1966. Over the course of the last 45 years, he has worn a variety of different personas: folk troubadour and protest singer, weary-eyed romantic, and born again Christian. But none of these Dylans were as iconic as that of the beatnik poet/psychedelic hipster of the mid-1960s. Robert Allan Zimmerman was born in Duluth, Minnesota on

    Function Vs. Form Ever since I was a kid riding bicycles has always been a blast. Whether my friends and I would ride to the store, cruise the neighborhoods, or just ride around to waste time. Riding was a common activity shared by all even to this day. Now that I'm older I realize how important it is to exercise and stay in shape, and bicycling is my favorite method. After switching from casually riding with friends to 20 mile sessions of hard riding, I decided to pick up my favorite and most functional article of clothing I've ever owned to this day: my Trek riding shorts.

    The Innerself Can Be Judged Fairly Accurately By External Appearances

    People tend to interpret a person’s external appearance as a reflection of their inner-self disregarding the age-old saying of never judging a book by its cover. It is incontrovertible that one can tell a lot from another’s inner self from the physical appearance albeit the accuracy of the inference to be highly challenged and inaccurate. The habit of’ judging a book by its cover’ is credited to Heuristics – “rules of thumb”, educated guesses, intuitive judgments or simply common sense. A judgment in relation to the person may be influenced or even determined by the outward clues that the pers

Some women with large breasts need it and want it - yet some women suffering from fibrocystic breast disease can get tremendous relief from breast pain by going without bras. For most women (excluding the large-breasted ones) bra wearing is not a necessity for their breasts' sake; it is worn for cultural reasons.
