Blouse Trends Spring 2005

In every wardrobe, there should be at least one blouse/collared shirt or whatever else you call them (What IS the exact term for it?)). They are essential for work or interviews when you need to dress up and look formal and professional. They are great for casual and works with absolutely anything. They are perfect for layering. But even the wardrobe staple gets a fashionable twist now and then. This season, the trend for the white blouse is to be tucked in, loose, feminine and colorful.

Ah, the classical Prada blouse(left). Prada makes the absolute best best best blouse around. It is an absolute MUST have. And the Chloe blouse(right). Although not the best around, one must appreciate the subtle white pattern and the colored details inside making the ordinary blouse stand out. Note that both blouses are loosely fitted and tucked in.

Coming away from the traditional white blouse, we have color, stripes and geometry. The Miu Miu blouse (left) is reminscent of the Prada blouse with its traditional loosely fitted cutting. But the geometric print on it definitely gives it some color and extra cool, making it very this season. Paul Smith also makes very good blouses. And the color striped one (right) is very well made indeed. Because besides the cutting, there are also very intricately done, colorful floral edges, giving it a more feminine touch. The bright thin belt on both loosely fitted blouses also adds femininity by emphasizing the "tiny waist."

Take the blouse even further and knot the blouse like Matthew Williamson's very colorful one on the left. This method of wearing it, instantly transforms the formal blouse to something very casual and in this case, beachy. Or add on the frills, scrunched sleeves and bows for a very very feminine blouse, like the pink Vuitton one on the right.

This Polo Sport white blouse is a good, more realistic, version of the traditional white blouse. I've always believed that Ralph Lauren made good blouses, and since Polo Sport is a division of it, the cutting of this should be quite good.

I also love the Abercrombie blouses. And this one would be perfect for the colorful striped look. I'm not sure about this one, but the one I have, they have gorgoues diamond-like buttons on the sleeves and the inside of the sleeve has polka dot prints on it. So it looks gorgeous both as it is and when I turn my sleeves up.

This Anthropology floral blouse is perfect for the colorful floral print look. Besides looking good by itself, just imagine how cool the color would look poking out of a shirt!

For the feminine blouse, this Urban Outfitters blouse is perfect. We love the poofy sleeves, the subtle striped pattern and the flair at the hips.

i love tucking blouses into circle skirts and then belting it...kinda looks like the LV runway pic (although that one isn't tucked in..)

Thank you for the wonderful effort

إني تذكـرت والذكرى مؤرقـة *مجـداً تلـيدا بأيـدينا أضعـناه

أنَّى اتجهتَ للإسـلام في بـلـدٍ * تجْده كالطيرِ مقصـوصًا جناحـاه

كـم صرفتنا يـدٌ كنـا نـصرفها * وبات يـملكنا شعب مـلكناه

بالله سل خلف بحر الروم عن عرب * بالأمس كانوا هنا واليوم قد تاهوا

وانزل دمشق وسائل صخر مسجدها * عمن بناه لعل الـصخر ينعـاه

هذى معـالم خرس كـل واحـدة * منهن قامت خطيبـا فاغرا فـاه

الله يعلم ما قلبت سـيرتهم يومـا * وأخطـأ دمـع الـعين مـجراه

يا من يرى عمـراتكسوه بردته * الزيت أدمٌ لـه والكـوخ مـأواه

يهتز كسـرى على كرسيه فرقـا * من خوفه ، وملوك الروم تخشـاه

يا رب فابعث لنا من مثلهم نفـرا * يشـيدون لـنا مـجدا أضعنـاه

The Dragon raised its sleepy head. It got onto its front feet and sat like a dog. It stood up and stretched, arching its long scaly back like a sleek tabby cat. It blinked and looked around with big kind, long lashed eyes.

And then its nostrils twitched and quivered again.

The older folk were alerted by the screams and shrieks. The ladies held up their long skirts to run and the men rolled their sleeves up and soon the whole town stood together in a tight huddle at the foot of the hill, staring up at the large beast with mouths held open.

Physicians. It received the royal charter in 1518 from King Henry VIII, affirmed by Act of Parliament in 1523. It was the first medical institution in England to become a Royal College. The college has been continuously active in improving practice medicine since then, primarily though training and qualifying new physicians. The current president of the college is Sir Richard Thompson.

The College is now located in St. Andrews Place, which is at the north end of the road running up the east side of Regent's Park, Park Square East. The College building itself is notable. It was designed by architect Sir Denys Lasdun in 1964 and has since been recognised as a building of national importance: it is a Grade I listed building, one of a very select band of post-war buildings sharing this distinction. Lasdun's use of mosaic clad concrete was extremely influential on many later public buildings.

Under the MMP system each person has two votes; one is for the seventy electoral seats (including seven reserved for Māori),[70] and the other is for a party. The remaining fifty seats are assigned so that representation in parliament reflects the party vote, although a party has to win one electoral seat or 5 percent of the total party vote before it is eligible for these seats.
