2 Top Fashion Retail Giants Keep Soaring Above the Crowd

Department store stocks have suffered another wave of selling pressure this month, after several big names in the sector reported weak second-quarter sales.

Kourtney Kardashian suffers a serious fashion fail in sheer

Over the years Kourtney Kardashian has not been shy about experimenting with new styles – sometimes getting it right but more often than not getting it wrong. And yesterday was the perfect example of the mother-of-three taking a fashion risk which didn’t pay off. The 36-year-old stood out like a sore thumb as she filmed with her family in St Barts– dressed in a sheer white frilly dress, which was tiered. Yes tiered. The bizarre dress swamped her tiny frame and looked more suitable for a toilet roll cover than anything else. Sorry. ... [Lire la suite]

Are tattoo artists right to refuse to adorn necks and hands?

When Jane Marie, a woman in her late 30s, walked into a tattoo studio on a Sunday afternoon in early summer, she was expecting to walk out with a tattoo of her daughter’s name. Marie, however, was outraged to learn that tattoo artist Dan Bythewood refused to grant her request because of the placement of the tattoo – on Marie’s neck. Bythewood explained that the studio, New York Adorned, had a policy not to tattoo the hands or necks of people who weren’t already visibly tattooed.
