Crown Royal is now honoring U.S. troops stationed abroad in Afghanistan and other Middle East locations with a limited edition purple camouflaged bottle and bag. While International law and military policy does not allow Crown Royal, or any other type of alcohol, to be sent overseas, Crown Royal is doing their share by sending a care package overseas every time a U.S. citizen purchases a purple camouflaged bottle in the states.
The Camo Care Packages sent by Crown Royal contain playing cards, a calling card, toothbrush, razor, sunscreen, and a few other knick-knacks for the troops to enjoy. All you have to do is buy a bottle of Crown Royal whisky for yourself and then in turn, they will send a stuffed care package to a solider in the Middle East!
While deciding on whether to go as Snooki from Jersey Shore or Sookie from True Blood, be sure on one thing: how you are going to accessorize...
Now through Halloween, pick up your very own FEED Trick-or-Treat Bag sold exclusively through HSN. A portion of every bag purchased (bag retails for $13.20) will be donated to UNICEF. Each bag sold will “provide one child in the developing world with an entire year's worth of vital micronutrient supplements.”
Cowboy boots are a type of riding boot and should be left as just that. If you live on a ranch in Texas and attend rodeos frequently, go for it... but unless there is a horse involved, cowboy boots are a big fat fashion faux pas!
With that said, there is no need to be walking around in a city with these boots on... and to make it worse, why do girls like to wear them with either shorts or dresses?! The boots alone are bad enough- they really should be called ‘cankle boots’ because the only thing they're good for is making your leg look all one-size from calf-to-ankle.
Traditional Western Style:
This frequent fashion offender is characterized by its pointed toe, high-angled heel and tall boot shaft. More often than not this style has some sort of ugly pattern on the side, and has two "help me pull this boot over my cankle loops" on the top.
Modified Cowboy Boot:
This boot has a cowboy feel but due to its rounded toe, squared-off heel and mid-calf length shaft, it is not nearly as awful as its cousin, the Western. Frye actually offers a great version: the mid-calf Engineer Boot (the strap w/buckle across the top of the foot helps define the ankle, therefore avoiding the 'cankle' look). Instead of shorts… pair with skinny jeans or leggings.
p.s. For a more sophisticated look, try an English riding boot: flat boot with rounded toe and tall, slim fitting shaft. No cankles here!
