Last week, a weatherman on one of the morning shows said that because of record-breaking warm temperatures all over the country, “it could be an endless summer.” Some people would relish that thought. I would consider an endless summer the fifth ring of hell. As winters go, we had a very lame one. Where was the snow? Where was the ice? I wore my Uggs only once because even though some say their feet never get hot in Uggs, mine do. I wore a heavy coat fewer than five times.
People have teased me from time to time that I was born in Wichita, I grew up in Wichita and I went completely through school in Wichita.
Theres no denying it. My heart skips a beat just seeing all the new spring shoes being displayed. If youre also a shoe lover, think about winning five new pairs of shoes and your heart will skip two beats. The good news is you can do just that.
In most categories there were no clear-cut favorites at the 84th annual Academy Awards. But when it came to fashion on the red carpet it was a different story. Fashion predictors expected to see lots of color, statement dresses, some prints and long sleeves. Turns out there seemed to be something for everyone, including the predictors. There were more white gowns than expected and no prints.
Kelly Ripa on “Live! With Kelly” is one of my favorite people on television. That’s why I was a little nervous about meeting her and going to her show in New York. I thought being in the studio audience would give me a chance to see what she’s like in “real life.” I didn’t want to find out she wasn’t the funny, cute, self-deprecating person she is on her show.
For a girl who wanted to work behind the television camera as a producer instead of in front of one as talent, Wichitan Dana Fleming’s face has appeared on television screens thousands of times.
I usually see comedian Craig Ferguson late at night on my TV screen. I don’t watch long because he’s the host of CBS’s “The Late Late Show,” which is one too many Lates for me.
My column last Monday brought a deluge of phone calls and e-mails. It seems many of us share the dilemma of when and how to help the homeless.
Something has been bugging me for days, so I’m going to dump it on you, then I can quit thinking about it.
When two professional wild game hunters from Zimbabwe, Gavin Rorke and Anthony Howland, strolled into Bradley Fairs Victorias Secret last week, they had that fish-out-of-water look.
I asked my friend Sally to remind me next year when I’m dragging out the greenery and a ton of Christmas decorations how much I dislike taking everything down after the holidays.
You never know what life is going to bring you, but it’s those fun surprises that keep us going.
If you love fashion, if you loved the Supremes, and maybe you still do, stop in the name of love!
The good part about talking to Lauren Kadel on the phone is that she is so joyful she’ll make you smile. The bad part is not being able to see her bright eyes and big smile.
Since youre going to be out shopping for something to wear for New Years Eve, you might as well take part in a very fun contest!
Sometimes things just click, and boy, doesnt that make life easier? I cant say there werent a couple of bumps in the road when we had a big holiday fashion shoot Nov. 13, but I can say we finished ahead of schedule. And, more importantly, we had some fun. The location was Wichita Country Club, where the staff did everything possible to accommodate the team of hairstylists and makeup artists, models of all ages, fashion assistants and the crazy woman.
You know youve been a fashion writer for quite awhile when you interview an established, very successful designer for the second time and realize the first interview was in the early 90s when she was just beginning to make her mark in the business.
It appears butterflies are flying out of a womans head on the cover of the 85th edition of the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book. I look forward every year to discovering what the His & Hers fantasy gift is. Well, if youve ever stood at the Bellagio in Las Vegas and watched the dancing waters and thought, Gee, it would be swell to have that in our back yard, now you can have it. Perhaps not as big, but the gift being offered is a pair of dancing fountains from WET, the company behind many of the worlds famous fountains. And for a cool million bucks, Santa will deliver it.
Today is Halloween. When I told my co-workers I don’t like Halloween, they asked “why” almost in unison.
Sara Lloyd learned to knit when she was 8 years old. So when she announced more than a year ago that she was going to knit her 2011 fall wardrobe, no one was surprised.
