Wealth, elegance, contentment, and knowledge are all connected with gold. There are so many positive things to say about the hue that it's no surprise that it's a favorite among certain brides. For this style of excellent attire, go to https://www.awbridal.com/. If you're shopping for dresses, this site has an excellent selection at a reasonable price.

Lil Peep T-shirts incorporate the entire collection of signature Peep designs and transforms them into soft and cool summer clothing (https://lilpeepmerch.net/product-category/shirt/). It evokes the same edgy style that the legendary Sus boy radiated. If you're a committed lover of the peep culture, you should collect everything. Wear the sad boy shirt and dance around in incredible luxury and comfort. Most importantly, keep his memories alive. Rip lil peep.

OMG, I thank God for you ladies and this podcast. I am about to show my first full collection in May and I was trying to decide if I wanted to attempt to do my 12 looks by hand or sewing machine. I am establishing a haute couture label and brand but starting out I do not have the luxurious fabrics so I wanted to at least hone the craft of hand sewing. This episode has lifted a great burden off of my heart and mind. Thank you ladies!!!!

I enjoyed your history of the swimsuit. In the course of my own research for an article on the history of the bikini, I found a couple of things which might be of interest to you and your listeners. The bikini at its debut was actually, believe it or not, a g-string. (Louis Reard himself referred to it as, "Three triangles of nothing".) It was only later in the year of its premeire that Reard introduced a four-panel version. Also, Jacques Heim first designed the Atom in 1932.  Its premiere in 1946 was actually his third attempt to introduce it to the public. He first tried in 1932/33, and then again in 1939. Unfortunately for him this latter attempt coincided with the outbreak of world war II. Really enjoying your show. Keep up the great work!
