Where to Find Inspiration for Your Daughter’s Birthday Gifts

Why is buying gifts for the people we love (and know the best) so difficult? Perhaps it’s the pressure or maybe we’re worried about buying something that they won’t like? Finding the right present for your daughter is one of those times where we seem to lose focus of what they like and dislike and wonder how we’re going to find the right gift in time.

In reality, the perfect gift for your little one is easy to determine, once you know where to get your inspiration. Whether you need toys for 8 year old girls, or something cool and quirky for your tween, in this post we’ll explore where you can find inspiration for your daughter’s birthday gifts. Read on to find out more.  

Take a Look at Their Hobbies

You don’t have to look far to find the perfect gift when you consider the topics that they’re passionate about. Whether they’re into horses and visit a pony club at the weekends, or they’re an avid dancer, wannabe actress, bookworm or gamer ask yourself if there is something you can treat them with that will enhance their skills and make their hobbies much more interesting, such as singing lessons, a dance event or a short story writing class. Or maybe you could spoil them with new equipment or attire for their hobbies? A new bag, shoes or boots, sports equipment, or a new gaming platform? The possibilities are endless!

Take A Look At Their Personal Style

If your child is a little older and already making their own fashion choices and choosing what to wear by themselves, then it might be time to use this as inspiration for their next birthday gift. Maybe they’re into hair accessories and bags right now, or they’re into jewellery and want to get their ears pierced? Skating apparel, sports logos, or something bright and colourful – take a look at their personal wardrobe favourites and use it as gift inspiration!

Remember Their Dislikes!

While it’s important to recognise your child’s favourite hobbies, interests and the things that they love, it’s just as important to focus on their dislikes! Maybe they hate a specific colour or material or perhaps they’re not particularly interested in technology, or they prefer graphic novels over traditional printed books. This information can help you steer clear of any gifts that won’t be well received and save you from making some expensive mistakes!

Do They Need Something?

A gift doesn’t have to be something novel or something they’ll find interesting for a short period. It could be something that they actually need! Ask yourself if they have enough dolls and soft toys and maybe something different might be better. Perhaps they’re having sleepovers with friends and they need a new sleeping bag, or maybe they’re heading up to secondary school and a laptop or tablet would help them with their school work?

Final Thoughts…

You’ll find the inspiration you need for gifts everywhere – if you know where to look! Consider these points above to get it right for your daughter.

Adore Me × Bebe Rexha Capsule Collection

Adore Me has never been a celebrity-driven brand but when the opportunity to work with Bebe Rexha was presented, they knew they couldn’t pass it up. Bebe has always been a powerful voice on body positivity and inclusivity – the themes most near and dear to Adore Me’s heart.

But the timing really matters to us, too, says Assiya Assanbayeva who is a content strategist for Adore Me. As we head into a summer where America’s re-opening, we’re excited that we have someone like Bebe Rexha to spread the message that it’s okay to celebrate and have fun. As a lingerie brand, making our customers feel happy, confident, and sexy is at the core of what we do – and after everything we’ve collectively been through, we truly hope we can spread some joy to our customers with this collection.

The collaboration was built around products that are unafraid to be sexy and playful, like both Bebe Rexha and Adore Me. Just like Bebe Rexha crosses genres from pop to country to rap to rock, Adore Me has always been driven to serve all styles of lingerie to all types of customers of all sizes. We hope the collection reflects this. Who better than a lingerie brand and an inspiring musician to help us through a hot vax summer. 

You can read more about the partnership and see the launch video here.

Onika Unlined

Pretty in pink! Made of recycled nylon lace, Onika has the best of both worlds: sexy and cute. This sheer plunging bodysuit features statement cut-outs with gold-ring hardware, a G-string back, and also has adjustable straps and removable cups. 

Fun fact: for her first lingerie photoshoot, Bebe Rexha wore this bodysuit before the photoshoot to get her feeling more comfortable, and as Bebe told WWD, Bebe Rexha is discussing her lingerie. Her current favorite is the Onika bodysuit.

Margaritte Unlined

Feel like a rockstar! This push-up balconette bra is all about lace and attention to detail. Margaritte features sexy cleavage with intricate details, gold-ring hardware, and removable pads. Plus, it is made from recycled nylon lace and comes with a matching bikini and cheeky panty. 

Fun bra-fit fact: With Margaritte bra on, you won’t have to worry about a wardrobe malfunction. The wings of this longline bra are wide enough to help secure the bra around the body and avoid it flipping up. The trick here is the support coming from the top back elastic, while the bottom elastic is made a little softer to not dig into the skin.

Ambrey

Ambrey is perfect for layering or wearing on its own. Made of custom lace in a botanical motif, this dark green bodysuit features a high-cut leg line and a thong back for a smooth and seamless feel.  

Spotted: a little triple dart detail on the sides of the lace cups makes sure the bodysuit fits comfortably around the bust. Plus, it’s sewn with soft threads, so it doesn’t rub against the most sensitive area.

Avara Unlined

Bustiers are a big trend of 2021, and Avara is the first cropped bustier we’ve ever made. While this underwire black lace bustier’s floral details evoke a sense of boudoir chic, the pleated-side mesh panels add it some extra edge. Avara comes with a matching high-leg cheeky panty for a full jaw-dropping look.

Fun bustier-fit fact: front and side boning add extra support to the bustier, while mesh panels allow a bit of stretch for more comfortable wear.

Dark_Tones: An Upcoming, Black-owned Luxury Fashion Brand

About the Brand: an androgynous, technical, luxury line centered around fabric juxtaposition & overt expression
Dark_Tones™ was founded in 2018 by Jonathan Vaughn in Los Angeles, CA. Our purpose is multi-faceted. The fashion industry has slowly drifted away from the roots in which it was created. Fast fashion, low-quality manufacturing, and fads have bombarded this space, watering down the true integrity of fashion. Our choice behind creating garments that are handcrafted and made to order is to reinstate that lost aspect of the industry.
The androgynous aspect is quite the opposite of the reinstatement of craftsmanship. While simultaneously going back to the roots of handmade textiles, we want to break into the future by eliminating gender barriers and preconceived roles. Clothing has been a large part of establishing these gender roles, and therefore needs to be a part of breaking them down. The ultimate journey of this purpose is where the name derives. This path of purpose, as with any path, has ups and downs and can be shrouded with darkness. Rather than avoiding the darkness, embrace it. It is the embracing of this darkness that results in the strength necessary to continue. The juxtaposition of these aspects – the conflicting journey of historical significance and future progression – defines Dark_Tones™.
Our mission is striving to deliver high quality, handcrafted garments for all genders. Our vision is to be a pioneer in the revival of true hand-craftsmanship while integrating the premise of fashion with no limits, no guidelines, and no separation.

About the Designer

Told in the words of the designer, Jonathan Vaughn:

“Originally the dream was to be an architect … then a lawyer … then in finance.

It wasn’t until reuniting with my grandfather after a 10-year spell did I fall in love with design. That’s when it started happening: an influx of creative expression. I started sketching suits, uniforms and outfits. I did all of my prom outfits and suits I wanted. I even helped with designing once he decided to create a brand.”

“This was throughout high school. Fast forward a few years to business school.”

“I felt a void. I loved business and figuring things out in a logical manner, but I felt as though my creativity was being suffocated. Business school, financially and creatively, was not working out. For a while I was distraught; the idea of being unsure of what the future held for me was crushing. Then, another push in the right direction from my grandfather. He asked, ‘What about RISD?’ I had never thought about going to an art school. But I went, and it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life.”

With a degree earned and graduation over, what was next?

“Half-way through July I became antsy. I didn’t want to be in Rhode Island anymore. After reading an article that mentioned how a lot of NY based designers are moving to California because production is cheaper, I ran the idea by grandpa. He’s all for it. So, I go. By mid-August I’m driving across the country, alone, to a place I’ve never been, not knowing what to expect. The first year involved a lot of self-searching, drugs, and alcohol. It wasn’t until halfway through the second year living in LA did I find what I initially came out here to do. I found a meaning behind my soon to be brand. Thus, Dark_Tones™ was born. A salute to surviving through everything life throws at you, not by burying it deep within yourself, but by embracing it in its fullest and embracing who it makes you become. The main thing I can wish for in the future is progression.”

DONNA LEAH DESIGNS

“The world of fashion, and the power that colors and textures have creating a mood have been with me from a very young age,” explains Donna Leah, when talking about the launch of her new brand, Donna Leah Designs. “I’ve always felt that sparkle and glamour should be enjoyed from the moment we wake up until after dark. Getting dressed in what we love is a great way to start the day with a positive vibe and makes me feel like I can accomplish anything. I am my own superhero.”

A graduate of New York’s famed Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), the American designer chose to base her brand in Miami where the dynamic energy of the city sparks her concepts. The brand was founded on a vision of empowerment and the need to be distinctive. A signature element of the brand is coordinating shawls that can be interpreted as a cape for women who embrace their individuality and are their own superhero.

Founded in late 2018, the brand launched with a collection of evening gowns inspired by the power of nature and the divine. Blues are a reminder of the ocean and the sky, greens and golds are the color of precious gems and lush foliage. “Heaven,” Donna Leah’s favorite piece, features a stunning sequins gown with a matching cape in mauve, a color she identifies with love and passion.

Now that people are spending more time at home, the designer has launched a line of loungewear inspired by her gowns, which incorporates Donna Leah’s love of metallics in bright shades of blues, pinks, and purples. The cape in the designer’s gowns has been translated into a hood for the loungewear collection. All pieces feel powerful, yet feminine, with bold colors and textures that act as a unifying statement for the brand.

Launching later this year will be a special series of designer statement t-shirts. Donna Leah explains, “I love making a statement and so much of us want to assert our feelings in a powerful way. While this is not a new concept, Donna Leah Designs is taking a unique approach that will resonate with women who have ageless style and are confident in their ideas.”

The reason for Donna Leah’s steady growing buzz is straightforward: the styles make a strong statement while being glamorous and unique at the same time. After completing several seasonal collections, including evening gowns, ready-to-wear, handbags, and accessories, Donna Leah is finding an audience for her pieces in the entertainment industry. She has shown her collections at the Grammy Awards and Oscars in 2019, and numerous celebrities are fans of her brand including Tanya Tucker, Cindy Lauper, Aerosmith, Roots, Cheap Trick, and Sharon Osbourne.

Established in 2013, self-taught designer Franky Baca set out to construct his first garments. The brand drew inspiration from nature, architecture, classic paintings, motion pictures and his Bay Area neighborhood, ultimately creating a sense of individuality for both men and women.

In 2014, their products were available to the public using futuristic yet historic silhouettes, its singularity is what differentiated the collection from what’s already been offered in the marketplace.

Franky says “My goal in creation is for the customer to question why something so different from there style is still beautiful to them. I want to challenge them to what they thought they knew about beauty. I always wanted to design clothing and loved fashion but I was hesitant because I didn’t want to design for others. I thought it took away from my individuality. I realized I could never be them and they could never be me, and I knew I must move forward. We need to inspire people and it’s the inspired people that create heroes of tomorrow.”

Secret revealed: buying the best women’s t-shirts

Summer is just around the corner now and most of us are seeking for simple, comfortable attire for the season. So, be sure to check out Marcelo Burlon.

Also, if you’re looking for an online destination to purchase hoodies or sweatshirts, then Marcelo Burlon is the perfect brand for that. In addition, You can buy shoes, bags, clothing and other accessories from this website as well.

However, there are some essentials you must keep in mind before buying women’s shirts.

Choose the t-shirt for your body type

Whenever you are buying a t-shirt, then go for the one that complements your body type. You have two options. You can go for the light colors or dark colors. However, what you need to keep in mind is that light colors tend to highlight flaws, while dark colors help to hide them.

If you want to play it safe, then there is a little trick that you can try. You can choose a subtle toned t-shirt and go for a bright colored accessory to go with your t-shirt. The mistake most people make is that they just go with the trends without realizing whether the chosen t-shirt complements their body type or not.

For example, slim-cut shirts may seem like an enticing option. However, hold the shirt in front of the mirror and see how it goes with your body type. If you follow this simple trick, you will not end up wasting money.

Going for the classic look

There are some rules of the thumb that you must follow when buying your t-shirt. The shoulder seams should never hang below the shoulder. It is vital that the sleeves of the t-shirt must end between the upper third of the arm.

Choosing the best fabric for your T-shirt

Pay close attention to the fabric of the t-shirt. Jersey fabric is thin and is not as durable. Ideally, choose 100% cotton fabric when you want to buy summer wardrobe pieces.

Cotton is prone to some shrinkage. If you go for cheap fabric for your t-shirt, then it possibly unravel after one wash. The knitting must be relaxed. It should not be overstretched and must be round in shape.

The neck band should not be twisted. It needs to be smooth. It’s vital to carefully read the label and follow the instructions.

Be sure to follow the aforementioned tips to prolong the life of your t-shirt.
