You don’t have to be a runway model to add these latest looks to your fall wardrobe

Let’s face it: Lots of the trends we spot on the runway aren’t, well, best-suited for everyday life. Take the eyebrows alone at the recent spring New York Fashion Week. Rodarte studded them with multiple piercings (we’re talking at least a baker’s dozen) and Badgley Mischka models rocked periwinkle blue and cotton candy pink brows. § While we certainly appreciate the artistry, we can’t necessarily imitate the styles at work (darn human resources offices and their dress codes!). § However, those out-there fashions certainly make for a...

Fashion notes: Don't let winter wardrobe leave you in the cold

Winter is coming. You can see it on faces – that obligatory grimace finally lifting. Not that it’s exactly breezy – more like walking through a cup of hot tea, rather than molten lava. Still, those who have spent a summer here know well that a degree or two here or there makes a considerable difference in our basic levels of contentment. While we may not have to pack away our summer wardrobe like most, be strict about getting rid of anything that doesn’t fit or has lost its match. Be ruthless and ask yourself three questions. Does it... [Lire la suite]

Fresh From New York Fashion Week

In fashion, as in life, there’s no need to re-create the wheel. For spring 2015, designers borrowed from classic styles, silhouettes and shades from the past (and some from more recently) and breathed new energy into them. The result: collections that cater to women of today while staying true to the designer’s aesthetic. Fashion insiders from across the globe got a peek at what’s in store for early next year at New York Fashion Week, which wrapped up last week after eight days of runway shows and presentations at venues across the...

Interior design trends for the season

From television shows and open houses to parade of homes, these venues offer exposure to new building products, designs, styles, colors and, most of all, a preview of the up-and-coming trends.

Is New York Fashion Week Now the Cool Kid on the Block?

London Fashion Week has long been considered the “kooky aunt” of fashion weeks, as The New York Times graciously described it this week. The British fashion extravaganza has been known for shows that focus on more eccentric styles (think Alexander McQueen), versus, say, the brasher and more commercial New York Fashion Week, best known for its infamous white elephant: the tent at Lincoln Center complete with its sponsor’s Mercedes-Benz cars—oh, and some catwalk shows. But this season, editors returned from the Big Apple gushing about... [Lire la suite]

Daughter's wedding as spectacular as the bride

When I first saw her in the ivory wedding dress, beautifully designed with Swarovski crystals and seed pearls, I was overcome with emotion. She was so elegant and her face glowed like I had never seen it glow before that day. My daughter, Mary, was about to be married and it was as special as the day she was born. My little girl had grown up so fast, and here she was standing right before me, smiling and so beautiful. The dress fit her perfectly, the train flowing away from her body in such a magnificent way. My little girl – 29 now... [Lire la suite]

Corrie celebrates first real-life wedding

Kirk and Beth might be planning their impending nuptials while Tracy and Rob’s are put on hold but one real-life couple has beaten them to it by marrying on the cobbles.

Spending on weddings varies widely

Splendid weddings are nothing new. But a recent study shows Americans are spending a higher share of their income on them than they did in the past. The average cost of a wedding today is said to be close to $30 thousand. 29-year old Kate Gossman, who grew up in Hyde Park, is planning her wedding next September. She’s been a bridesmaid and guest many times so she knows what she wants. “The words I use to describe the actual feel of the wedding are rustic elegant with a hint of romance,” says Kate. “It’s not extremely formal, over...
