New And Old Luxury Watches

The main way to group luxury watches is by brand. There are quite a few big names in the business and with new styles being introduced each season, it can be hard to keep up with all the changes. Rolex watches have certainly withstood the test of time and the company makes about two thousand watches each day. That is very much considering the prices and the exclusivity offered by this brand but there will always be a demand for glamorous timepieces mainly because of the way that people see them. These watches are appreciated as status symbols for the elite and a name like Rolex will always get recognized very easily.


It is not just about the new styles, heritage is very important when it comes to luxury watches and while there are some names that are very recent, most big companies have a long history and strong traditions in making perfect timepieces. Rolex watches have been around since 1905 and over this time, many unique models have appeared that brought change and innovation. The most valuable timepieces on specialty sites like Horologue, are those from limited editions that have a serial number. This makes them collectibles and you can’t simply set a price on them. The original Rolex Daytona series, for example, had a unique four digit code on every model so that people could keep track of every model from the limited series. Once the series was sold, the demand was still very high so Rolex decided to create a new series with a six digit code; although these models are valuable, the first series remains priceless.

Rolex watches have always been good at combining the new with the old. Keeping traditions alive with every timepiece is what makes this brand so important but making each of the status symbols for the modern elite is what makes them fashionable. It is no wonder then, why Rolex timepieces are valued and desired by everyone.

Christian Dior was a fashion designer from France who was born in a wealthy family. His parents hoped that he would became a diplomat but his creative style and the fact that he was drawn to art made him turn to fashion. He also owned a small art gallery and after losing his business he started working with the well-known designer Robert Piguet.

He opened his famous fashion house in 1946 and he soon became popular because he managed to create very feminine pieces with lovely elements that made the women who wore them very voluptuous. A lot of elements were part of his collection and things like corsets or petticoats were the most important features of his creations.

His personal life was kept away from the public but we know that he was openly gay and he died without having a family of his own. There is a lot of controversy surrounding his death circumstances. Some people believe he died of a heart attack after playing cards, others offer other explanation such as dying after chocking with a fish bone. However, there are some who say that he actually had a hard attack after having a very demanding sexual experience, but nobody is sure of what happened before he died and to this day, nobody knows how he actually died. Everything that is known is the fact that he died while being on vacation in Italy in 1957.

Christian Dior

Christian Dior revolutionized the fashion world through his fantastic themes and colorful materials. He managed to create a beautiful design that would complement any woman and make her features stand out. This is what fashion should be about and the early fashion houses teach us that it’s not about prestige and fancy materials as it is about making the person who wears those close feel better about themselves and gain confidence.

Why You Should’t Buy Replica Bag

At first, we are all intrigued by fake bags, so intrigued that we’re actually considering buying this type of product. We are tempted by its beautiful appearance and by the idea that we could look more stylish with a designer bag on our arm, even if it is just a replica. The truth is that a fake purse isn’t as great as it may seem. It has numerous downsides and if you make the mistake of buying a knockoff you may end up regretting this decision. Why is that?  Well, I can list you at least 4 reasons.


  1. Replica bags aren’t perfect copies

The first thing replica sellers tell us about fakes is that these are perfect copies of the original purses. This is the biggest lie ever. Maybe for a person who isn’t familiar with the authentic design, a clone may seem pretty genuine looking, but for someone who knows a thing or two about these products the difference is more than obvious. The first important difference is the fabric used for manufacturing the purse. The factories that make imitation bags do not have access to good quality leather or canvas and because of this they use inferior fabrics that, obviously, look very different and have a distinct feel. Authentic designer handbags have a very elegant shine and a delicate feel while replicas are too shiny and have a cheap texture.

  1. Replica bags smell

That’s right, ladies. You can smell a replica from miles away. This isn’t an exaggeration, but rather a normal consequence of the fact that these copies are made from poor materials that need very strong chemicals to shine and have a suppler feel. The Internet is full with complaints from customers who were tempted by the illusion of getting a replica bag at a fraction of the price of the authentic purse. After receiving the knockoff, these ladies were shocked to discover that it was impossible to wear the fake handbag due to the very strong smell.

  1. Poor quality hardware

On a bag, the hardware is very important. Each designer uses a certain type of metal that is unique due to its shine, color, craftsmanship and embossed logos. All metallic parts of a bag are usually stamped with the brand’s name or logo. The problem with replicas is that they have poor quality hardware that fade off in time, start to rust or do not have the correct logos.

  1. It’s all in the details

Of course, the complexity and beauty of a luxury designer bag consists of its intricate details and the gorgeous way that these blend together to create an exquisite fashion accessory. Details like the symmetry of the stitches, the shape of the handles, the authenticity tags, dust bag and the font of the texts make the difference between a replica and the genuine handbag. If one of these very small things is distinct then anyone can tell that your purse is a fake.

The conclusion here is that the perfection and uniqueness of an original bag consists of its flawless craftsmanship, refined materials and delicate feel, and, unfortunately, replicas will always be just some cheap and tacky copies that aren’t worth anyone’s attention and money.


Boxy Tops

Fashion trends change every day and with them new ways of accessorizing and expressing yourself are available. One of the latest fashion trends is the crop top, a beautiful feminine top that will definitely enhance your figure and make you look chic.


The crop top actually appeared in the 90s and since then it only had one comeback, in the 2013 when people started wearing it everywhere. If you remember how Spice Girls dressed you probably know what the crop top is, a top that is just above the navel. The top may be a bit too much for some and it’s definitely one of those that can be worn after a certain age but if you are under 30 you can definitely pull off this lovely fashion item.

The first glance at this type of top reminds us of those 90s clips with fashion models and you kind of have to be one to wear one because it is very revealing.   However, there are solutions for those who are a bit shyer but would also love to wear one of these, you can definitely opt for something that comes with more material and only shows part of your abdomen. The 2013 catwalks have shown women wearing crop tops with skirts and pants but the most impressive designs have been the once that tried to give this sporty item a more elegant touch. Crop tops that exposed just a fine strap of the abdomen,  those that exposed the lower part of the abdomen or tops that had a transparent material over the abdomen are just a few of the compromises fashion designers had to do to make sure that they make this elegant.

So, no matter what your style is, there’s a crop top for everyone. You can wear them with a trench coat and even with high waist skirt. Make sure that you add a few accessories such as long necklaces that reach the exposed part, this way you will have a chic look. Also, don’t be afraid to use color combinations and make sure that you give your top the entire spotlight it deserves.

3 Reasons Why Replicas Are a Really Bad Choice

No one can deny it. The replica industry is getting stronger and more alluring by the day. And the reason for this is mostly our misinformed believes regarding the quality and utility of a fake watches. Replica merchants tell us that these products are 1:1 copies and we are tempted to believe them. This is very far from the truth. The quality, functionality and the durability of a knockoff is considerably inferior to the ones of the genuine product. In the end, the choice is yours, but I feel that before buying a fake, you should know why replicas are the worst possible choice.


  1. Quality

The actual problem with replicas is that these are made from very poor quality materials and there is no quality control whatsoever. I know that almost all fake stores say that their imitations are perfect clones, but you can’t actually believe that. No couple hundred dollars product will ever match the quality of a $10,000 luxury designer watch that is equipped with an extremely precise automatic mechanism. An authentic timepiece is the result of decades of innovations and it uses only the finest materials available on the market. On the other hand, a replica is a similar looking watch that is made from a light and cheap stainless steel and uses a very fragile and inaccurate self-winding movement. Wearing such a poor quality imitation makes it obvious for all those around you that it is just a fake and that you are pretending to be someone you are not. And this is, honestly, the biggest mistakes of all. No matter the brands on your clothing or accessories, you should always be true with who you are.

  1. Functionality

The main purpose of a watch is to tell correct time. It isn’t just a fashion accessory, but a high precision time keeping device. This is the reason why authentic luxury timepieces are considered a real work of art, because of their complicated and extremely precise automatic mechanisms. Of course, a replica watch will never be as accurate as the original product. The original watches use a very expensive and intricate movement and no matter how much replica manufacturers try to clone its functionality, they will never make one that can match up to these remarkable performances. Fakes have an inferior quality mechanism that can’t keep accurate time or support the stop-watch, date and chronometer functions correctly.

  1. Durability

Replica watches are not meant to last. These usually break after a short period of time. If you get to wear your replica for more than a couple of months then you are really lucky. The low durability of knockoffs is a consequence of their low quality materials and poor mechanisms. Most fakes break after a couple of weeks or arrive defective. The worst part is that it is very difficult to replace or repair the product because replica manufacturers have their warehouses in China and the faulty watch must be returned there. The final costs of returning a knockoff are very high and these make the whole thing seem pointless.

This is why I highly advise you to take a minute and review all the pros and cons of buying a fake watch. Once you do this, you will realize that a replica watch is the worst choice ever.

Alessandra Ambrosio

April 11, 1981 was a celebrated date if we consider the fact that it marks the birth of Alessandra Ambrosio, a famous fashion model that started her career early on. Since the age of 12, she knew exactly what she wanted to do for the rest of her life and so she enrolled in modeling classes. After 3 years, when she was 15 years old, she became a model for Dilson Stein. The thing that launched her modeling career was the fact that she won the Brazil’s Elite Model Look, after that she had a big modeling opportunity when she appeared on the cover of Brazilian Elle magazine. Needless to say that with such big modeling jobs in her portfolio, Alessandra Ambrosio was in great demand.


While she looks great on covers and on the catwalk, it seems that she also likes to be on the small screen; she appeared in quite a few TV shows, including an appearance on the show Entourage. Fans also got to see her along supermodel Tyra Banks as she was a guest twice on the show. A quick glance of this superb fashion model was also available in the hit movie Casino Royale where she had the role of a tennis player.

Aside from being a pleasure to the eyes and a model for young girls everywhere, she also has a spirit for business and her line of swimwear is quickly expanding ever since 2004. With such a great image for a swimsuit line, it is no wonder why so many customers choose it to represent their own style and look amazing on the beach.

While she had many fashion shows, Alessandra is most famous for her work for Victoria’s Secret, a known lingerie brand. She started in 2000 and her work with this known brand still continues today with subsequent shows. During this long history on the catwalk, some outfits stood out in a very interesting way; in 2005 she had an outfit made entirely out of candy.

Being one of the world’s sexiest women is a constant work but Alessandra Ambrosio does it perfectly and no matter if we see her on TV or on the cover of the latest fashion magazine, we can’t help but fall in love with her.
