Fusion of Fashion & Home – Pale Pink

The softer side of color is refreshing and uplifting with Pale Pink trending in both fashion and home this season…

Pink is known for it’s soft qualities. The addition of white to calms down the passionate red and replaces it with a gentle, comforting feeling. Studies have confirmed that exposure to pink can have a calming effect; violent prisoners have been calmed by placing them in a pink room for specified amount of time.

If you have a friend that wears pink all the time it may indicate a need for acceptance, support and unconditional love. It puts us in touch with our nurturing side.

Pink is the color of uncomplicated emotions. It represents the child in all of us; the innocence and sweetness, the inexperience an naiveté.

Did you know that Popcorn was first domesticated in Mexico 9,000 years ago from a wild grass and is one of the oldest forms of corn?

Well, during the Great Depression, a trip to the theatre was one of the few entertainment options people could afford. Theaters did not sell snacks at the time and as a bag of popcorn kernels would sell for about $10, lasting years, they could sell to the people at 10 cents a bag and make ahefty profit. The lure of the aroma made it easy to sell. The machines to make popcorn are quite portable so industrious vendors would set up right outside and sell to the patrons going into the theater.

Soon theater owners saw the opportunity and began leasing space inside to the vendors and the movie theater snack bar was born. Eventually the middle men were cut out and selling snacks in the theater actually saved many movie houses.

Popcorn is ubiquitous now. Having been a part of every decade of our culture. How great is the MTV Movie Awards trophy that is a bucket of popcorn. We LOVE Jeremy Scott’s “Fast Food Fashion” for Moschino and the “Food Fight” Collection for Cybex.

National Argyle Day

Argyle (or Argyl) truly never goes out of style. From the World War I Highlanders and Louis Armstrong, through Pierre Balman in the 50s to Vivienne Westwood’s current creations it’s amazing to see how it’s been interpreted over the years and the ways it’s been worn. How awesome are those socks in that wedding party photo by Abbey Caldwell?argyle

We have the Clan Cambell of Argyll Scotland as they used the basic pattern in their kilts and plaids. Scottish Highlanders have been wearing these patterned socks since at least the 1600s (they were generally known as “tartan hose”). After World War I, argyle knitwear became fashionable in Great Britain and then the United States.

Fusion Friday – Cork

Cork is quite possibly one of the better materials for any type of creating; fashion and home included. Oak trees that grow in the western Mediterranean form thick, rugged and corky bark. Over time, this park can develop a considerable thickness and can be harvested every 10-12 years as cork. The harvesting of the cork does not harm the tree, and the a new layer of cork regrows, making it a renewable resource.cork
