It’s the Fashion

With personal development you learn that having fun is a big part of it. So let’s have fun in your personal development and I’ll share a few fashionable things with you. And if you like what you read here, I would appreciate you coming back to the top of this page and retweeting it. I check my retweets and will do the same for you if I find value in your tweets.

Because “the topic of fashion shows remains to find its historian”, the earliest history of fashion shows remains obscure. However in the 1800s, “fashion parades” periodically took place in Paris couture salons.

Before the 1800s, there were no separately designed shoes for the right and left feet.

Any Russian man who wore a beard was required to pay a special tax during the time of Peter the Great.

Evidence of shoe making exists as early as 10000 B.C.E.

In 1778, women of Paris never went out in blustery weather without a lightning rod attached to their hats.

In the marriage ceremony of the ancient Inca Indians of Peru, the couple was considered officially wed when they took off their sandals and handed them to each other.

Olive oil was used for washing the body in the ancient Mediterranean world.

Pirates thought having an earring would improve their eyesight.

Welsh mercenary bowmen in the medieval period only wore one shoe at a time.

Until the Middle Ages, underwater divers near the Mediterranean coastline collected golden strands from the pen shell, which used the strands to hold itself in place. The strands were woven into a luxury textile and made into ladies’ gloves so fine that a pair could be packed into an empty walnut shell.

In Ethiopia, both males and females of the Surma tribes shave their heads as a mark of beauty.

I think they still bath in Olive Oil, heck we all use the body wash with olive oil isn’t it? It has so many healing properties, it even controls the falling out of hair! It makes my skin more brighter too – genius whoever it was that discovered it!

Yes olive oil is fantastic. We’re living in the wine and olive country in California and have found this terrific combination of olive oil and garlic produced by an olive orchard right down the road from us.

Fashion is the expression of how humans obsessed with one’s self. From cosmetics, apparel, and even jewelries were all made for self satisfaction.
