The Right Sunglasses

When you are shopping for the perfect sunglasses this summer, keep your face shape in mind.
  • If you have a round face, choose upswept frames.
  • If you have a heart face, choose aviators.

  • If you have a oval face, choose rectangular lenses. 
  • If you have a square face, choose rounded edges.

Vintage, Retro, or Antique?

Ok, so a lot of times people don't get their fashion terms correct. Shame on them! :P I was watching a video on YouTube that really helped me.....
  • Vintage clothes are clothes from the 1920's to the 1970's.
  • Retro clothes are clothes from the 1960's to the 1970's.
  • Antique clothes are anything before the 1920's.
  • Thrifted clothes are clothes that were used before during any time.
    • From: "How To Thrift - Tips For Thrift Shopping" by anneorshine
Hope this cleared stuff up for you!!!!!! :)
