Fashion Goes High-Tech With Self-Buttoning Dress Shirt

Keeping up with daily life, latest fashion trends, is easier than ever with MagnaReady® Dress shirts always look good, but frequently seem more trouble than they are worth. I’ve always liked to wear men’s dress shirts with jeans, but did not like ironing them, paying to have them laundered, or sewing on missing buttons. Now, it is easier than ever with MagnaReady® self-buttoning dress shirts. Fashion trends for men seem to change slowly, whereas women’s trends can drastically change from season to season. However, like anything else, there are some fashion staples that never go out of style. MagnaReady®...

The Fashionable Martini

Is it the drink, the design of the glass, or a little of both? What doesn’t look good, served in a martini glass. Originally, Martinis were made with gin and vermouth and garnished with an olive or twist of lemon. Some substituted vodka. The origin is unclear but vermouth has been around 150 years. Even though quite strong, they have always been a beautiful and fashionable drink.   But for me it’s not the drink, it’s the glass. I’ve used the martini glass for years to serve shrimp cocktail and desserts. I’m not alone, as many restaurateurs have done...

Divine ModesTee Simply Ideal

Divine ModesTee simply ideal for me. I field many inquiries for various products. One recently came in that I passed on to our fashion editor. However, when Divine ModesTee crossed my screen, I was intrigued. No longer in the “sweet young woman” category, nor rail thin, these suits looked flattering and perfect. Most women, no matter their age, want to look stylish and comfortable. As Johnny Mercer said, “Accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative, and don’t mess with mister in between.” This swimwear has over fifty-five mix and match designs. Now, the test was to determine if they were...

Imelda Marcos, You Have Competition with Shoes

Shoes have always been in fashion and fun and many of us have a closet full. When I was unable to find my photos from the Kennebunkport Festival, where I had photographed shoes of attendees, I called my friend Angie Helton for help. She could give Imelda Marcos a run for the money. Every day, Angie wore a different pair of fun or beautiful shoes, which exquisitely matched her outfits. So Angie came through and pulled some of her favorites out of her closet. In the 40s and 50s, platform shoes were the rage and spaghetti straps went wild....
