It may be more than 50 years since its humble grand opening, but the fundamental mission of The North Face (TNF) has remained unchanged: that is, to provide athletes and modern-day explorers with the highest-quality performance apparel. It is a brand that constantly pushes the boundaries of innovation so that you can go outside and explore the amazing world that is around us – whether that be trekking up a mountain, taking a leisurely stroll in the countryside, or gallivanting in the city.
Easter bunny is well and truly on his way, hopping along through the daffodils with a basket full of eggs. It is a celebration of cocoa, a holiday dedicated to chocolate, and an excuse to treat your kiddies to a bit of sweet chocolatey-goodness. But if you’re looking for something a little more original, perhaps an Easter gift that will last a little longer than chocolate, we have the perfect suggestion… surprise your boys and girls with a new Easter outfit!
Lots of people like to get away at Easter; with the kids off school for two whole weeks, and a long bank holiday weekend to look forward to, it’s the perfect time to pack a bag and leave the hustle and bustle of everyday life behind. The beast from the east is about to bite again and UK temperatures are set to plunge for the Easter break, so if you haven’t booked a holiday yet, why not ditch the bitter UK weather and jet off somewhere hot and sunny? Just be spontaneous, find a late deal, and grab some last-minute holiday clothes from OD’s Designer Clothing!
Winter is “officially” over for another year; the sun has passed across the celestial equator (marking the spring equinox of 2018), the mornings are getting brighter, and we no longer have to trek home from work in the dark. But don’t be fooled! Spring may be here, but the bad weather is refusing to budge. In fact, Britain has been warned to expect plunging temperatures and further snowfall in the days leading up to the Easter bank holiday weekend. It has been dubbed the third wave of the Beast from the East and the chances of waking up to a white Easter are becoming more and more likely.
Easter is no longer just about giving the kids a chocolate egg; more and more people are sending cards, giving gifts, and putting up decorations in their home. Believe it or not, Easter crackers are now actually a thing… and you can almost guarantee your little one has been invited to an Easter egg hunt or Easter party of some sort. You’ll want to make sure your son or daughter looks the part and, of course, it’s a chance to show off in front of the other mums. So why not dress your little chick in something high-end? A distinctive, designer Easter outfit that stands out from the clutch.
The North Face is named after the coldest, most unforgiving side of the mountain. It started in 1966 as a small mountaineering shop in San Francisco and, over the last 50 odd years, it has developed a strong following of athletes and it has sponsored expeditions to some of the most far-flung corners of the world. The brand’s well-known mantra is “Never Stop Exploring” and their fundamental mission is to encourage people to go outside and explore the amazing world around us. They constantly push the boundaries of design, innovation, and technology and, as a result, they create a collection of clothing that is perfect for little outdoor adventures…
Did you know? Dsquared2 started way back in 1995; when Canadian twins Dean and Dan Caten relocated to Italy and cosied up with some of Italy’s most celebrated fashion houses. Their designer clothing collections for men, women, and juniors have received huge backing from sports clubs and celebrities all around the world – including Barcelona FC, Robbie Williams, Nick Jonas, Beyoncé and Justin Bieber, to name just a few. It’s fair to say, they have become a seriously popular designer brand over the last two decades and – now more than ever - their clothes go flying off the shelves.
If you still haven’t found the perfect Mother’s Day gift, the clock is ticking, and time is running out! There’s not long to go until that all-important day and you need to find something special; something that shows how much you care, something that shows your appreciation and says thank you for everything that your mum has done – and probably still does! Let’s face it, a last-minute cheap bottle of plonk and a bunch of flowers from the supermarket just doesn’t cut the mustard. Your mum deserves so much more and, here at OD’s, we have the solution…
Whether it’s for your birth mother, step-mum, grandma, adopted ma, or just a motherly figure in your life, a designer watch is the perfect Mother’s Day gift idea. It is a timeless and dependable piece of jewellery; something that will become a go-to accessory, worn day and night, and cherished for many years to come. Not only will it show the number one lady in your life how much she means to you, but choose correctly, and it will demonstrate how much you know her too. There are hundreds of designer watches to choose from, so put a little thought into and make sure you get it right.
Your mum is incredible. From the day that you were born, she took on a very complex and multifaceted job role. She became a teacher, counsellor, cook, cleaner, chauffeur, nurse, best friend and more, all rolled into one. Some mums devote every single hour of their time to these roles, others somehow manage to do all of this whilst holding down a full-time paid job. According to a research study conducted by Interflora Flowers, the average mum works 119 hours a week and would earn a salary of about £172,000 a year for everything that she does. She is a superhero, a multifaceted woman, and she deserves to be celebrated.
With less than two weeks to go until Mother’s Day, you need to find that all-important gift. Something special, something that will show your mum just how much you care, something that she will love as much as you love her – and if it puts your siblings to shame, well, that’s a bonus too! After years of buying flowers and chocolates, here at OD’s Designer Clothing, we think it’s time for the sons and daughters of the world to start thinking outside of the box. Don’t leave it until the last minute and grab the first thing you see on the supermarket shelf. Put a little thought into it and try to come up with a thoughtful and unusual Mother’s Day gift idea.
Infinity jewellery has become an increasingly popular trend over the last few years. More and more pretty necklaces and dainty bracelets feature the simple, sideways figure of eight; a symbol first introduced by English mathematician, John Wallis, in 1655. It refers to something with no bounds, a quantity larger than any number, and it is believed to represent eternity and everlasting love. Due to this beautiful meaning, infinity jewellery is not just a pretty addition to an outfit – it is often sentimental, something that represents a relationship or a special moment in someone’s life.
This year, Mother’s Day 2018 falls on Sunday 11th March. It’ll come around soon enough, so pencil it into your diary and start making plans! Arguably one of the most important days of the year, it is a chance to show your wonderful mum just how much you love and appreciate her. It’s an opportunity to pamper her, spoil her rotten, and treat her to something that is just as special as she is. But what exactly do you buy for the woman that has done and will do anything in the world for you?
Saturday is Random Act of Kindness Day! Bet you didn’t have that one in your diary…
First introduced by the Random Act of Kindness Association (RAK) in 1995, it is a day for altruism; twenty-four hours to perform at least one selfless act that will put a smile on someone’s face. It’s often the smallest things that can have the biggest impact. Someone might help you to open a door when your hands are full or treat you to cake for no apparent reason, and suddenly, life seems that little bit better. According to RAK, such random acts of kindness have the power to change how people see and experience the world – and they can also have a positive effect on the giver!
Valentine’s day has a crafty way of creeping up on people. January was a hectic month, you’ve been super busy at work and then, all of a sudden, February 14th is less than 48 hours away. You’re giftless, desperate, and time is quickly running out. If you’re wife or girlfriend means a lot to you, the last thing you want is for her to think you don’t care, and being in her bad books won’t be much fun! So, it’s time to start searching for that perfect last-minute valentine’s day gift…
A charm bracelet is not just a piece of jewellery; it’s a story. Each individual charm, link, and bead has a unique meaning, perhaps marking a significant milestone or special occasion in the wearer’s life and celebrating their main accomplishments. There is nothing more personal and symbolic. A charm bracelet is a completely individual accessory, and for that reason, it often holds a very dear place in a woman’s heart. She’ll wear it with pride, draw people’s attention with its signature jingle, and tell anyone who cares to listen what each little charm and quirky bead represents.
February is here at long-last, which means we’re officially in the season of love and romance. Valentine’s Day is now just over a week away and its time to start thinking about the perfect gift for your sweetheart. Of course, you want to treat her to something special; a valentine’s day gift that says thank you for all her support throughout the year. Perhaps a piece of jewellery, a necklace that is just as beautiful as she is. Something thoughtful, that shows her how much you care.
As a 21st century man, talking about your emotions may not come naturally to you. You know exactly how you feel, but you struggle to find the right words. Having a heart-to-heart is something you find difficult, embarrassing even, and you usually avoid it at all costs. But with valentine’s day just around the corner, you need to find a way to tell your loved-one just how much she means to you.
Gentleman, it’s a fact that can’t be ignored; Valentine’s Day 2018 is fast-approaching and its time to start making plans. So how are you going to celebrate the day of love and romance this year? Perhaps you could prepare a candlelit dinner, have it ready for when your valentine gets home. You could go for a long, romantic stroll in the park, catch a movie at the cinema, or revisit the coffee shop where you had your first date. The possibilities are endless; just put a little thought into it and make sure it’s something that she’ll enjoy.Read More
People are different, especially when it comes to fashion. We all have our own unique sense of style, personal tastes, and individual preferences. One woman’s dream wedding dress is another woman’s nightmare. High-heeled shoes are pretty and stylish to one woman, but impractical and ridiculous to another. A necklace is too plain and simple for one lady but may seem extravagant and over-the-top to somebody else. Why? Because we are all individuals!
Today is National Compliment Day. Yes, this really is a thing! It’s thought to be the brainchild of two ladies back in 1998; as firm believers in the power of the compliment, they asked that everyone made an effort for just one day – the 24th January - and challenged people to say something nice to a friend, colleague, or relative. Let’s face it, it feels good when someone pays us a compliment. It cheers us up, boosts our confidence, and gives us a warm, fuzzy feeling inside. According to researchers, it can even improve our performance on certain tasks.
Vivienne Westwood stole the show once again last week at London Fashion Week (LFW) Men’s AW18. Rather than staging a traditional catwalk-style fashion show, the designer presented her unisex range using a short film called ‘Don’t Get Killed’. The theme was war. Models marched about, waving flags and talking about their commitment to the Westwood Army. The clothes were military-inspired and featured lots of camouflage and tartan patterns. There was also a big focus on colour, including traditional army red and Mountbatten – a shade of pink first introduced during WW2.Read More
