  • Scarves are all the rage these days

    Scarves are all the rage these days.  Obviously, scarves have always been part of any dress code for many countries in cold climates.  However, for years now scarves have had more than just a functional purpose.  I remember as a child that if you were unable to afford the soccer jersey representing your favorite team, the next best thing was to have their scarf.  The reason for this, of course, is that it allowed you to embroider the team badge onto the scarf, and thus transform the scarf into public statement of who you were proud to support and swear your allegiance to.  There are some scarves that have different patterns and designs embroidered on either side of them, allowing you to wear the scarf with different clothing.  There are several reasons why scarves are great fashion accessories.  Consider the following:

    • They are versatile, so you can wear them in different ways depending on your image and mood.

    • They are great for finishing an overall look and giving a better sense of completeness and symmetry to your attire.  For example, sometimes you might wear a big, heavy jacket that ends up looking disproportionate to your neck line, and scarf can be the perfect clothing accessory to bring extra balance to your look.

    • They are great for that added bit of color to your clothing.  A lot of winter clothing is made from earth tones and darker colors, so a scarf with bold patterns or lighter colors can be a good compliment to your overall appearance.  It will help you avoid a look of dullness or plainness and bring a bit color to your face.

    • They are great for functional reasons as well.  You can really keep out a lot cold and rain by covering your neck with an appropriately sized scarf.  Some have said that wrapping up warmly can even prevent you from catching the flu.  There of course other factors, but it is medically proven that going in and out of extreme temperature and be detrimental to your health.

    So scarves are here to stay and only show signs of growing in popularity and use.  Now with so many kinds of scarves for different climates and settings, it seems that scarves are going to continue to have the dual purposes of function and show.

  • Finding the right hanger for you and your clothes

    Finding the right hanger for you and your clothes.  Today you hangers can just be as an important as your clothes. There nothing more frustrating than having purchased a garment of price to then have it damaged by the hanger it rests on.  Here's quick summary of the different hanger you can buy before  purchasing new clothing:

    Wire

    Wire hangers will be the most affordable kind of hanger and therefore are usually utilized by dry cleaners and professional laundries as a result. However they are the least suitable hanger for your clothing. Wire hangers are thin and can fold beneath the weight of clothes. Their sharpened shape will leave markings on the areas where the clothes hung, that can be hard to remove.Wire hangers needs to be as little as possible to prevent damage to your clothing.

    Tubular Plastic

    Tubular plastic hangers are low-cost and ideal for lighter clothing. You will discover them with notched shoulders which are suitable for clothes with thin or wide-set straps. Another advantage of plastic is that it is not going to rust or discoloration your clothing. These hangers are not made for heavier garments and will lead to shoulder protrusions because of their straight design. Some types have plastic clips on the lower bar that can hold lightweight skirts or slacks.

    Molded Plastic

    Molded plastic hangers can be quite lightweight, affordable hangers or they can be strong, well-shaped hangers for suits and jackets. If you're able to effortlessly break off any part of the hanger, it is only for light-weight garments and short-term use. There are effectively made weighty plastic hangers with a wire hook that can work for a long time. These have broad, curved shoulders and won't cause hanger markers on garments. Some kinds provide bars for hanging pants or clips to hold {skirts.

    Fabric Padded

    Padded hangers are great for lingerie, light clothing. Usually embellished with silk or any other smooth material, they protect against snags. Many cushioned hangers have buttons attached on close to the edges to avoid the straps from sliding off. The style of the hangers is not appropriate for weighty clothing and will result in shoulder bumps. They are not made to hold pants or skirts.

    Some padded hangers also work as sachets for the closet, often stuffed with lavender. You'll usually see artistically hand-made padded hangers at craft shows.

    Wood

    Wood hangers are perfect for suits, overcoats and heavy clothing. They are strong and will maintain their frame and form holding the heaviest items of clothing. Wood hangers also provide greater protection for garments because of their design. The form stops clothes from being hung too tightly together. By letting air flow and less abrasion amongst the clothing, your garments will last for a longer period of time. Wood hangers tend to be made from cherry or walnut wood.

    Wooden hangers are available in numerous designs with or without bars for pants and clips to grip skirts.

    Cedar

    Cedar hangers are ideal if you enjoy the fragrance. Cedar will repel moths as well as their larvae that could harm all your clothing. In contrast to other wooden hangers, cedar hangers do not have a layer of varnish allowing the natural wood to soak up moisture content preventing mold spores and to freshen your garments. If cedar hangers begin to lose their usefulness through the years of use, then sand them gently for further use. They will be rejuvenated and smell the same as if they were just purchased.

  • United Franchise Group Introduces New Financing Option

    New Rex Agreement allows franchisees to turn home equity into business equity

    West Palm Beach, FL (February 25, 2013) – The United Franchise Group (UFG), the global leader for entrepreneurs, announced today an agreement with FirstREX to make FirstREX’s home equity-based business funding available to current and future franchisees. This innovative product, the REX Agreement, allows homeowners to convert a portion of their home equity to cash to invest in a business without additional debt.

    “The REX Agreement fills an important niche in franchise financing, and will be a significant addition to the variety of financing options we currently offer” said Ray Titus, CEO of United Franchise Group. “Prospective and existing franchisees who have significant home equity now have a way to convert some of that asset into an investment in their business without interest or payments.” “Often franchisees use a combination of funding strategies to obtain financing, including loans, leases and lines of credit. The REX Agreement can help prospective franchisees obtain the initial owner equity that lenders require for them to get into their own business.” says Titus.

    Under a REX Agreement, FirstREX will make an equity investment in an individual residential property. The company will pay the homeowner up to 12.5% of the value of the home. There is no interest and the homeowner makes no monthly payments to FirstREX. Instead, the company earns a return on its investment when the home is eventually sold, up to 30 years in the future. If the home has increased in value, the company earns a profit. If the home has decreased in value, FirstREX typically shares the loss.

    “We are delighted to be working with UFG to bring the REX Agreement to franchisees,” says James Riccitelli, Co-CEO of FirstREX. “Many potential franchisees and existing franchisees have limited access to capital but possess considerable home equity. Our solution makes that asset available for business investment - in essence turning home equity into business equity,” says Riccitelli.
