Easy Fashion Tips to Help You Look Your Best
Fashion seems to be different for everyone, yet some people still seem to set the pace. Have you ever wondered how you could approach fashion in a whole new way? The internet is a great resource for you in this time of need. Consider the following helpful tips regarding fashion.
Flip-flops are a comfortable type of footwear for casual occasions, but do not wear them to work or in formal situations. Look for classy but comfortable shoes with a low heel to wear to work every day. High heels should be reserved for formal occasions, especially if you will not need to stand or walk very much.
Buy clothes that do not lose their flair. It is nearly impossible to keep up with current trends unless you have an unlimited amount of money to work with. To ensure that you look great no matter what the trends are you should just focus on buying clothes that can weather any fashion storm.
A great fashion tip is to always dress appropriately depending on where you're going. This is especially important for parties because so many different parties require their own special attire that guests are expected to wear. You don't want to show up to a cocktail party under dressed or do the exact opposite.
Hats are a great accessory to match any kind of outfit. For men, there are the typical fisherman hats and baseball caps, but for women, the possibilities run much deeper. For instance, you can wear a cute sun hat, floppy hat or beach hat with any casual dress you own.
You may not think so, but fashion is about keeping an open mind and allowing yourself to figure out more of who you are. There are many helpful resources to help you find out more about fashion. Remember the tips and advice you've read here as you work your way towards better fashion.

    A truly excellent resource, August 19, 2015

    This review is from: The Dead Sea Scrolls: A New Translation (Paperback)
    I wan’t sure what to expect from this translation of the Qumran scrolls (I had not read any earlier translations). The introduction is excellent, clearly explaning to readers what to expect – and not expect – from the scrolls, as well as some tremendously helpful background on the scrolls themselves: how they were written, the languages used, and some broad information about their origins and the site at which they were found. This primer gave perspective and clarity before getting to the scrolls themselves.

    Before each scroll is presented, there is a brief introduction. While any sort of interpretation will have its bias, I found no clear agenda in these introductions – rather, they too helped make some sense of the documents and shed some light on the controversey (where there was some) and differences of opinions (when there was) about the meaning or significance of the scroll.

    Taken as a whole, this is a tremendous resource, the scholarship and information presented along with the documents themselves are helpful and accessable to the non-specialist.

    QUMRAN: AS SADDUCEE GOVERNED SPIRITUAL TEMPLE
    Regardless of your starting-point: Christian, Judaic, or Secular; you will appreciate the objective treatment of the scrolls by these three scholars. I personally was interested in the Qumran-authored scrolls that would give me insight into the community itself.
    I read the following sections:

    Introduction pp. 1-38
    This introduction gives the reader a close look at the 200 year span from 100 BCE to 100 CE; a great exposition of the Hasmonean and Herodian dynasties. Absolutely essential material.

    Damascus scroll pp. 49-59

    EXHORTATION SECTION: This material introduces us to the “man-of-mockery” & the “teacher-of-righteousness”, which illustrates the underlying convictions that guided the commune.

    RULES OF CONDUCT SECTION: very informative for understanding the early Judaic rules of the Sabbath. There are additional practical rules in the section pp. 70-84.

    Habakkuk scroll pp. 114-124
    Extremely important for understanding the sect. Through re-interpreting the 6th century BCE document of Scripture; especially the Nebuchadnezzar threat, and applying it to their own threatened relationship to queen Salome’s preference for Pharisee governship of the temple.

    Charter scroll pp. 123-133
    A fully-recovered scroll that was not in fragments. It gives us an excellent look “inside” Qumran and is essential reading. It also gives a look at their “angel-theology” & “rite-of-initiation”

    Nahum scroll of cave four pp. 215-225
    Considered by the authors as the “key” scroll for understanding the community at Qumran. You’ll do best to read this section, with your bible open to Nahum. The references are specific. It, of course concludes with an enlarged “judgment” section.

    Today there are many Dead Sea scroll offerings and It could get difficult selecting one that treats the scrolls objectively. My HONEST IMPRESSION is that this volume is very objective and fair to the material researched. I strongly recommend it. You will be enriched by the journey.
    5 stars for not jumping to the overly-simplistic Essene theory; and for giving us honest in-depth scholarship.
