Come summer, the days will be longer – and so will the hemlines. (Hello, midi dresses.) Aside from those darling vintage-inspired dresses, the runways have also been foreshadowing lots of ultra-feminine styles for summer. New arrivals feature ruffles and pretty prints galore.
Barry St. John, a former Wichitan who now lives in Los Angeles, recently got the Cool Dad Award. He showed his 9-year-old daughter and her basketball teammates the trailer to “The Jungle Book” before it was out for everyone to see. That’s a perk of having your dad be the visual effects associate producer on a movie that made $103.6 million the weekend it debuted.
Those of us who love handbags have said a hundred times, “It’s all about the bag.” This month that saying is so true, but it has nothing to do with which new spring bag is slung over your shoulder. Members of Junior League of Wichita want you to carry a medium-size plastic bag instead of your purse. And they have a good reason for it.
Adele Uddo is a model whose job is to stay mostly out of the picture. On a cover shoot for Town & Country, for example, Hugh Jackman perched on apple crates while Uddo stood beneath him, arm raised, so the only part of her in the frame was her hand cupping his face, her slender fingers tousling his hair.

That’s why it’s important to know which items you should snatch up now and which ones you should hold off purchasing.
Years after Carly Cardellino quit her college sorority, she couldn’t leave behind one piece of it: a teal star and a red heart outlined in black, the group’s symbol, which she had spent $50 to have tattooed on her left foot during her sophomore year.
Lately I’ve read several articles about the importance of family members sitting down at the table for a meal. Many advantages from this ritual are listed, and the term “a place at the table” is used time and again.
Nearly a year ago, Apple released its Apple Watch, the extensively hyped smartwatch that many thought would shake up the traditional watch industry, or render it obsolete. Talk of revolution, it turns out, was premature. Just as punk rock gave way to radio-friendly new wave, the Apple Watch simply paved the way for the next generation of smartwatches. The new blockbuster feature? They look less like sci-fi gizmos and more like, well, watches.
