Shoes Fashion Trend 2009

Footwear goes surreal this coming season. The more extravagance and crazy you look the better. Opt for dramatic designs and exaggerated heels. Hardware embellishment is really hot, too.

Puss-in-boots style makes its glorious comeback in fall 2009. Long boots win over stilettos.

Moreover, designers let you go further and try thigh-high black suede skinny leg boots, one of the hottest key looks for the winter. Channel the inner Catwoman, girl!

Fall/Winter Fashion Trend 2009-2010

As people say, get the things you may need ready in good time, time you checked out the hottest looks for this coming fashion season.

Experts say this coming fall and winter will be all about strong silhouettes and sophisticated glamour. Decadent features are present in many F/W 2009-10 key looks and reflect the current economic situation.

However, 80s disco style and bold looks will anyway find their own place in your wardrobe if you want to follow the fashion tendencies in full. It’s like all about girl power! See what I mean.

Fashion Trend Paint Box Colour Blocking and Fondant Colours

Fashion Trend Paint Box Colour Blocking and Fondant Colours

Richard Nicoll was a prime example of a designer using colour blocking. However, many other fashion designers have injected statement colour into Spring 2009 clothes by using bright bold hues. While a few other creators played to the neutral palette.

Left - The pink way, striking colour blocking with blushing pink beige, rose to hot pink. All three pant variations are by Richard Nicoll. Note how we have two looks working here - the mixing of fondant tones in large colour blocks, and also the mixing of vibrant brights. Observe also the important boyfriend blazer style jacket.

Colour blocking with strong brights of hot pinks, orange, mango, tangerine and lime are popular. You will also see other brights such as lapis, Yves Klein blue, Santorini blue, lemon yellow, lime, orange and aqua jade tones. These garments can be worn alone or blocked together with the enthusiasm of the Dutch designer Mondrian.

In conclusion, expect bright colours that pop, shock and electrify to cheer up dull days. Mix and match bold colours in the latest silhouettes to add zest and a new tang to your existing wardrobe.

Fashion Trends For Spring and Summer 2009 Ideas

Fashion Trends For Spring and Summer 2009
For 2009 the statement-making looks of last season have drawn us into the concept of boldness in all areas of fashion. Et Vous rose one-shoulder top £16 - Matalan Spring 2009 Collection.Dynamic garments like the one shoulder asymmetric dress give the designer ample opportunity to enhance the one shoulder with braids, bows, ruffles and fringes. This asymmetric look also extends to swimwear with pretty add-on floral forms. To the right you can see an inexpensive Matalan top. Observe how fabric roses, and surface texture like bows are a repeating ornament used in many areas of women's apparel.

For evening wear and special occasions, the one shoulder dress is already a winner and destined to take over from bandeau bustline prom styles. I discussed this development in earlier trend pages, when I predicted that the one shoulder Grecian style was a fashion fad to watch. Each season it has grown in strength as a viable alternative to the bustier strapless bodice. Now, having been given the ultimate seal of approval by Michelle Obama, it's likely to be the hottest evening glam for a year, and possibly a good portion of the twenty-teens decade. Also look out for this one shoulder design amongst bridal fashion collections.

Grown up glamorous fashion focuses on dresses, ornate jackets and knee length easy coats, sleeve/shoulder and hemline interest. Fashion looks are becoming LESS careless, more ordered, more statement making with futuristic glamour at the helm.

A bit more about J.J. Friis

There was a very nice and very well-attended funeral service for J.J. Friis this morning. At the reception afterwards, there was a table full of photos of him, including this older one (above) with his parents. Since I don't know how long the Register will keep J.J.'s obituary on their website, I'm posting it below:

Friis, James Jessen, of Orange, who was active for many years in Orange County musical and historical organizations, died Monday, July 27, 2009, at the age of 81, from the effects of a stroke.

Friis was born in Santa Ana on March 1, 1928, the son of Leo Jessen Friis and Lena Jane Carlson Friis, who had come to California from Iowa in the 1920s. The family resided in Anaheim.

Musical studies began early in his life, with drums at age 4, later piano, and by the time of his graduation from Anaheim High School in 1946, he also played the organ. He graduated from Pomona College in 1951 with a Bachelor of Arts degree with an emphasis in music composition.

Friis also held leadership positions in the Musical Arts Club of Orange County, Santa Ana Community Concerts, and was a past dean of the Orange County Chapter of The American Guild of Organists. He also served as organist (and frequently choirmaster) of several local churches, among them St. Michael's Episcopal church, Anaheim, St. Joseph's Episcopal Church, Buena Park, and the Church of Christ, Scientist, Laguna Hills.

With his father, Friis founded Friis-Pioneer Press in Santa Ana, a firm noted for the publication of books of Orange County history. He served several terms as president of the Orange County Historical Society, as well as the Old Courthouse Museum Society, and was a member of the Anaheim Historical Society, the Orange Community Historical Society, and the Historical Society of Southern California.

The Native Sons of the Golden West, a fraternal organization of those born in California, was a major interest of his life, and he served several terms as President of Santa Ana Parlor #74 and as Grand Organist for the statewide organization. Friis was also a member of Anaheim Masonic Lodge, Long Beach Scottish Rite, and Al Malaikah shrine, Los Angeles.

Friis is survived by his wife, the former Harriet Lampert, who is also an Orange County native.

Funeral Services are scheduled for 11 a.m. Friday, July 31, at Trinity Episcopal Church, 2400 N. Canal Street, Orange. Visitation will be held from 3 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, July 30 at Shannon-Bryan Mortuary, Orange. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Trinity Episcopal Church, the American Diabetes Association , or the Charitable Foundation of the Native Sons of the Golden West (mail to Santa Ana Parlor #74, c/o Treasurer, 14932 Gainford Circle, Irvine, CA 92604).

S.J. Parker With Her Long Hair For Long Face Shape
People who have longer faces typically have larger foreheads. If you have a longer face, but you want longer hair, add some bangs. Those who have bangs will be able to cover up that forehead and get you on your way! The main thing that you need to remember with longer styles is you do need to add some variation. You want to be able to have a lot of variety. In this case, try to frame your face. You can do this by adding bangs or even layers!
Layers are great for those looking to shape their face. With longer faces, you do not need to do as much as you would with a round face. Your face already has the shape that is designed for long hair. Long hair works to actually to give the illusion that your face is longer as well as slimmer. Talk to your stylist about what you can do for your long face and how you should wear your long hair!

Huntington Beach's Main St. Post Office (1935)

A number of postal employees are spreading the word that Huntington Beach's Main Street Post Office (1935) at 316 Olive Ave will close in October. Here's some of the traffic from the HBTalk listserv over the past couple days:
Marinka Horack wrote: "...The postal staff ...also said that the...building would be sold to the city. The downtown post office is a beautiful historic building and it would be a terrible loss if it were to be torn down... Does the building have historic status protection?..."
Chris Epting wrote: "That's an interesting building--a WPA project that actually has a sister building, exact same design, in Santa Paula, CA. Any official announcement about the closure yet?"
Mary Adams Urashima wrote: "The California 'New Deal' projects marked their 75-year anniversary in 2008, and they are still trying to identify all sites. The only one noted for Huntington Beach so far is the recreation building. Chris, do you know what year the post office was constructed? I believe the federal government must post a public notice for the sale of surplus property, subject to bids. However, there is a clause that allows for negotiated disposal of surplus property to "tax-supported agencies"-which would be the City. See section 203 of the Federal Property & Administrative Services Act (update 2000).
"With the present economic situation and the federal government trying to cut costs, the City might negotiate a great deal on a historic federal property. I would think a WPA building could easily qualify as a historic building, definitely worth preservation through grants or redevelopment funds."
John Earl wrote: "I wonder if there's a way to prevent this. Closing the downtown post office will create a great inconvenience for many who live in the downtown area."
Chris Jepsen wrote: "With a couple exceptions, the City of Huntington Beach has a poor track record with historical preservation. They've made noises in recent years about improving that reputation, but who knows if that will happen. In short, if you want to save the building, start *now*.
"The Post Office was built in 1935. It was designed by Louis A. Simon and built by L.F. Dow of Los Angeles. I believe it was built as a PWA or WPA project. Simon also designed the U.S. Federal Courthouse in Downtown L.A., the Canoga Park Post Office (1938), the Whittier Post Office (1935) and others.
"I'm very sorry to hear it's closing, because -- from a resident's perspective -- it was one of the last functional bits of Downtown."
[Photo of the building's dedication appears below.]
Mary Adams Urashima wrote: "...Louis A. Simon designed many of the depression-era post offices and other public buildings that are now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. He also designed the Internal Revenue Building in Washington, D.C., but let's not hold that against him. : )
"Here's the info from the Depew, NY, post office historic register nomination document (it's not as old as HB's downtown post office, but is listed):

"Louis A. Simon served as Supervising Architect from 1933 until 1939, but he had
been associated with the office from 1896. Simon was Superintendent of Architects in the office between 1905 and 1933. From 1915 to 1933...Simon was responsible for the direction of much of the design work. Most of Simon's buildings were designed in the Colonial Revival style and, on occasion, in a restrained or more stylized classically derived style. The use of a standard pattern for these buildings reflects the increasing simplicity of design and standardization of form which are characteristic of post offices of this period, the most prolific era of post office construction in the nation's history.

As early as 1930, the federal government had implemented a massive post office construction program to help offset widespread unemployment caused by the Great Depression. By the end of the decade, however, with the onset of World War II, Congress postponed indefinitely the construction of most post offices not yet under contract."

John Scott wrote: "[The town of Kearney,] Nebraska... was faced with a similar problem with their post office which I would guess was built about the same time as ours... Several retired professors... recognized the treasure that the city had in this old building and decided it must be preserved. ...This Post Office is now an art museum..."
Chris Jepsen wrote: "Huntington Beach needs a non-profit preservation group like the ones in Anaheim and Santa Ana. The group's primary goals would be to educate the public and government about our historical resources and to work toward preserving those resources. They could also promote local adoption of the Mills Act. And occasionally - and especially in the beginning - they might need to hire lawyers to make sure the city is complying with the historical aspects of CEQA.
"We did a program on historical preservation for the City at the Art Center early this year. Unfortunately, only a few people saw it because it wasn't promoted. I'd be happy to give that talk again if there's an audience for it. (I'd need a bit of advance notice, since I'd want to involve at least one additional speaker.)
"Another point: If H.B. is so dedicated to tourism, we should recognize the enormous economic value of 'Heritage Tourism' and put it to work for us. That means playing up our historic resources rather than bulldozing or remodeling them."
Epilogue: The the wake of these emails, I'm now hearing that the City and some postal employees deny knowledge of the situation, while others are verifying that the building is going to close. As things get clearer, I'll keep you posted.

We Have A Winner.... And Asian Baby Girl Shower Centerpieces!

We have a winner of this week's blog candy: #42 - Jessica. Isn't #42 always the right answer in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Universe? Hummmm... Silly random selector.

While I have you here, I wanted to share the centerpieces I made for an Asian themed baby shower I hosted at work. We decorated our conference room in over the top Asian and had an assorted buffet of Asian foods for lunch. The husband and wife work in our office and they are so sweet. They are also "out of the box" thinkers so an Asian themed baby shower suited them nicely. Now we have to wait another 6 to 7 weeks to meet sweet baby Sophie!!

Yorba Linda / Santa Ana Canyon field trip, Part 2

This is part two of my report on Saturday's field trip to see the remains Anaheim Union Water Co. canals in eastern Yorba Linda. (Click here for part one.) Today's photos show some of the interesting, mostly unrelated things we saw along the way. (There will be more about irrigation in what will be the third and final post in this series.)
The photo above shows our group near the "trail head." The construction in the background replaces apartments that burned down during the recent fires.
The photo below shows a few trees from the large Valencia orange groves that still occupy some of this area. They've been mostly neglected for years, but there's a plan underway to revive them as organic groves and start selling the fruit again.
My surveyor friends may have to help me out with the photo below. Does anyone know what a metal disk marked "F P No. 1" in an iron pipe means?
It's been a long time since cattle roamed this land, but here's a brittle bone that turned up in an area where the brush had burned away.
At one point we came across a clearing near the railroad tracks with lots of stone fire rings. Some were old and nearly obscured by hard-packed soil. Others, like the one shown below, were newer and more obvious. There were about seven rings total. I pointed out that this was a lousy place to start a fire. Steve said the rings were probably used by "knights of the road." Then it hit me: We were standing in the middle of a genuine "hobo jungle." If only John Hodgman had been there to appreciate it. I hummed "Big Rock Candy Mountains" most of the way back to the car.

Thanks to Susan Faessel for the first three photos in today's post.

Celebrity Hairstyles Hair Color

Celebrity hairstyles have influenced us for thousands of years. Ever since Cleopatra first coined the idea that she could use her hairstyle to enhance her power and fame, women all over the world have mimicked the hairstyles and hair care rituals of the rich and famous in order to try and harness a little of that glory for themselves.

Here is an outline of how to use some of the best quality salon hair care products on the market to replicate and maintain the most popular celebrity hairstyles of recent times: 'The Farrah', 'The Rachel' and 'The Pob'.

The Farrah

Farrah Fawcett's flip was the predecessor of 'The Rachel' of the 1990s, spawning a zillion copycat hairstyles back in the 1970s. Both styles achieved enormous worldwide popularity, though the styles themselves couldn't be more different. Many celebrities have put a modern spin on the Farrah flip, creating backwards-facing curls which are softer than the Charlie's Angels star's original, for a more chic and subdued look.

The initial hairstyle needs to be created in a salon for the best effect; here are some tips for hair care options to maintain The Farrah. Apply a texturizing lotion to wet hair for texture and volume and blow dry the hair upside down from side to side. Use a paddle brush to increase volume and smooth the hair.

Long Hairstyles and Hair Care 2010 Edition

Practicing the right hair care is very important! If you have longer hair, you may have to take some extra time and care. If you have a longer hairstyle, here are a few things that you should think about when caring for your hair. The more that you know about hair care, the healthier your hair is going to be!
Washing your hair on a regular basis is vital. Most people, who have long hair, tend to wash it every day or every other day. This all depends on the type of hair that you have. Those who have thick, long hair do not need to wash on a daily basis. If your hair catches a lot of grease and grime, then wash everyday. There is also a wide variety of products that you can look into purchasing as well. Certain products will help lock moisture in your hair. Others will simply add some extra shine to your hair. Make sure that you do not use too many products at once. This could essentially make your hair greasier than it was. If you have any questions about hair care, talk to your stylist. They will give you pointers on how often to trim your hair. Trimming on a regular basis will prevent split ends and damage. Get started right now with the perfect hair care regimen. The more you know about your hair and hair care, the healthier your hair is actually going to be!
