Darius Cordell | How to Tell the Difference Between Silk & Polyester

There are many tell tale signs that differentiate Silk from Polyester. The easiest is just from vision.  Silk, when held up to the light, will have a subtle sheen and slightly change color in the light.  Polyester will show a white sheen no matter the angle.  When this isn’t so obvious and you just aren’t sure; take a close look at the weave of the material.  Polyester will have a very even and meticulous pattern that has virtually NO flaws.  Natural Silk on the other hand is just that… NATURAL! It will have a flaws here and there, as well as variations in pattern and be imperfect.  But lastly, if you still are on the fence, flip the material over!  Silk will have the print on both sides, while 9 time out of 10, Polyester only have the print on one side.  Silk will show through because the color bleeds through. More times than not, Polyester is more dense and won’t allow the color through. Let’s not forget to check the tag for 2 reasons: 1 – check the material if you simply are uncertain of the product, and 2 – check the price! Silk is about 10 times more expensive than any Polyester material! The larger the price $$$ the more likely you are buying real Silk.

Michelle Obama Breathes New Life Into a Dries Van Noten Dress

Having previously worn the dress at a World Innovation Summit for Education in Qatar last fall, FLOTUS brought the piece back in rotation but with a few new edgy additions. Gone was last year’s fresh blowout, with Obama instead smoothing her hair back into a slick low bun, adding a subtle pair of danglers for a glint of shine. And even though she kept the same gold-finished pumps she originally wore last year, the effect was different. Appearing more like a cool art-world curator in Van Noten’s innovative design, the First Lady fit right in with all the creative iconoclasts who had gathered in the White House’s East Room to be awarded. And with the First Family’s last days in the White House
