Bombas

Nothing is more annoying then an old worn out sock. There are probably holes in the soles and they don’t keep your feet warm. Well if your looking for some new socks your can look no farther, Bombas has you covered. The word Bombas is derived from the Latin word bumblebee. This company makes some of the best sock out there. They launched their company with the goal of fixing the problem of high demand for socks in homeless shelters. So for every pair you buy they give on to a homeless shelter. To do this, however, they had to redesign the whole sock to a game changer. When doing this the first priority was comfort. So they picked the most comfortable material, Extra Long Staple Cotton. This keeps you warm in the winter, cool in the summer, and moister wicking properties. Then they took out the seam of the sock because those are never comfortable when wearing a tight shoe. Their is  reinforced foot bead built for comfort and a tiny ankle tab so you will never get blisters. Next they put in a honeycomb design in the arch of the foot for the most support where needed most. These at just some of the improvement that they have made. You can find the rest on their website https://bombas.com/pages/sock-tech. I have a pair  of these socks and cannot get enough of them. They are comfortable and good quality. Best of all they are for a good cause and every time I wear them it makes me happy knowing I have helped someone in need.

The Clothing Swap

Today was the first ever Lake Braddock student clothing swap! The Fashion Ambassadors put together the idea to dedicate a bruin block (free period) to spend “purchasing” clothes that other students donated in advance. Every student that donated clothing was given up to five tickets, which was used as “money” – one ticket = one clothing item.

The Clothing Swap was only open to marketing students, so although the turn out was on the smaller side, it was a successful day. So successful that after today, the Fashion Ambassadors decided to host another Clothing Swap, but this time open to the whole school! Keep your eyes open Lake Braddock and make sure to clear your schedule on June 9!

Revamp your style this spring

Due to the spring season finally arriving, fashion has changed slightly. Spring is now the time for brighter colors and more open clothing and time to hang up your heavy coats and boots. The spring is a great time to feel free to change your look as it’s nature’s own rebirth. Bright greens, blues, and pinks make for a great tag-in for your winter collection’s cooler pallet. You can never go wrong with a floral and stripped patterns in the spring time. The weather is even enough the majority of the time to get away with either shorter clothing or open toed shoes. The spring should be the time to be more confident with your own style and the time to try something new. You may be surprised at what just one little change can do in the grand scheme of things.

GQ- Covering Models and The Importance of Equality

For decades, even centuries, people of the LGBTQ+ community have been discriminated against and devalued just for being who they are. Recently in 2017, we as a society have been trying to fix the previous judgement and prejudices of others by creating an environment that loves and appreciates all, no matter who they are or what they identify as. GQ magazine is a perfect example of how we are changing society today. Andreja Pejić, a transgender model, will be the first transgender model on not one, but TWO covers of GQ Portugal’s magazine. Not only is this a huge accomplishment for her, but it also helps pave the way for other LGBTQ+ people in fashion and in general. Andreja is humble and honored to be where she is now, but we should be honored that we have the opportunity to live in a time where we can experience this much-needed change. Hopefully we can have more diversity in fashion not only featuring gender and sexuality, but maybe even race and other things as well. 2017 just started, but it already shows so much promise. -ED 🙂
