Ever Throw a Shoe At a Guy? You're Not Alone!

While online looking for Christmas fun facts, I ended up stumbling upon some fashion fun facts. The more I looked, the more bizarre the facts became. They were so much fun, I had to share...

40% of women claim to have hurled footwear at men.

Prince Philip, the eldest son of Charles XIII of Spain, adored gloves so much that he often wore 16 pairs at a time.

Pants became a women’s fashion phenomenon only after actress Marlene Dietrich wore them in the 1930 film Morocco.

In the royal courts of India, blue-blooded women used to change their clothes several time a day. And, they never wore the same outfit twice.

In the middle ages, purses were often exchanged between couples as tokens of love and courtship.

The skirt is the second oldest women’s garment in history. It’s preceded only by the loin cloth.

Queen Elizabeth I loved hats so much that she made it mandatory for all females over the age of 7 to wear a hat on Sundays and holidays.

The newsboy cap has been dated back to the 14th Century in England where it was worn by working class men. Today, it’s a casual fashion staple of A-list celebrities!
