Accent tall with flowers and feathers

Just yesterday I returned front a little (and my
\ery first I know. can you believe it?) trip to
THE New York (‘ity. and am only too excited to
impart the knowledge I
gained there to you. my fel-
low fashion mavens.

Because the summer is
coming to an end tin the
fashion world. that is -. the
fall lines are already outl). I
thought it would be appropri~
ate to give a heads-up on the
fall fashions wonh taking a

MAGGIE look at and those that really
LANHAM aren‘t worth your time.
Kernel The first trend 1 took no-
tolumnist tice of is leathers. Yes. feath—
ers. They‘re popping up all
over the runways (and the
streets) as a bodice to a fomifitting dress or as drop
earrings matched with turquoise and bumt red beads.
Though it could verge on the side of costume. this is
a style worth taking a second look at. trust me. Your
best bet for strutting this style would be in the acces-
sories. A feather headband is my favorite and gives
an ezuthy tutd natural yet unique twist to your every-
day outfit that will keep people curious.

Another fashion I noticed (and loved) was flo-
ral prints. which I saw in many manifestations. 0n
Seventh Avenue. 1 found that florals were abound‘
ing in bold patterns splashed across dresses that
reached just below the knee. ln Greenwich Village
1 found florals were displayed in softer. vintage or
vintage~inspircd prints on breezy chiffon dresses
and necklaces with an antique gold chain.



Whichever way you choose to wear them. florals
are definitely an investment worth making.

A style I wasn‘t so keen on was the slouchy
pants look. Though it looks fabulous on the runway
and on stick-figure models. it isn‘t a style that‘s as
accessible to the everyday woman. The most diffi
cult thing about slouchy pants is that they have to
fit just so. or the whole look is off. And to find a
pair that fits right. you need to be willing to fork
out the dough (which I found sadly. does not, in
fact, grow on trees). I‘d say stick with your boot-
cut. slim-fit. skinny jeans or even belled jeans.
which I heard are making a comeback! Can you
say Cher circa Sonny and C her?

The second trend I noticed I wasn‘t too fond
of was the return of the black pointy—toed high
heel! Yes, we all own a pair (I know I most cer-
tainly do). but 1 was really enjoying the round—
toed heels. flats and boots. and didn't wish to re-
turn from my hiatus from black pointy heels for a
long while. While they are sleek and professional.
let's have some more fun with our footwear? For
this reason. I would suggest. if you do love spon-
ing pointy heels. making them colorful? A deep
crimson or a rich royal purple are all colors for the

fall. so don‘t be afraid to step out in them. And if

heels aren't for you at all. look into brown leather
boots .4- they are all the rage and so comfy!

And again. whatever you do. whether you
agree with my fashion ideals or not. make sure to
wezu what makes you feel best and most fabulous.
Because it doesn’t matter how many runways strut
whatever styles. real fashion mavens (such as
yourselves) all know that true style is about just
being you.

As buildings fall,
accept potential
with new design

The bulldozers arrived. the build-
ings fell and with them went the last
hopes for an appeal to stop the demo-
lition of the CentrePointe block.

We knew it was coming _. the raz—
iiig was unanimously approved at the
end of June. The Dame and Busters of-
ficially closed nearly a month ago;-
but still we held tight to the thought
that someone (hopefully historical
preservation group Preserve Lexing-
ton). somew'here would win an appeal
and prevent the 35-story monstrosity
from climbing into the downtown skies.

But with the block being leveled
we shouldn‘t pause too long to wal—
low in defeat and nostalgia. instead it
is important to look ahead for ways to
make the best out of the new hotel.
retail and restaurant space.

Circuit Judge Pamela Goodwine
said during her ruling Tuesday. which
gave the go-ahcad for demolition of
the remaining buildings on the block.
the economic impact for the Lexing-
ton community would be “incredibly

"The economic benefits for years
to come are absolutely and indis—
putably tremendous." Goodwine said.

So if this is true and the city will
benefit economically. even if not cul«
turally‘. maybe there is something to
look forward to... but please let it be
in a different package.

the College of Design in hosting a de—

were far—fetched and hardly realistic.

The/oilowing editorial appeared in the
Chicago Tribune on Tuesday. July 22:


Whatever Janet Jackson does in
the remaining time she has in this
world. she probably can't alter the first
sentence of the obituaries that will run
when she departs it. Unless she be—
comes a serial killer or a Nobel Peace
Prize winner. she will forever be re-
membered for her bare right breast.

It inspired the now-universal temi

of describing the incident at the 2004
Super Bowl halftime show when fellow
pop singer Justin Timberlake yanked at
her costume. providing a brief. partial
glimpse of her upper torso.

We do mean brief ~— the flash of
skin was over in exactly nine-six-
teenths of a second. But for exposing
football fans to that momentary image.
the Federal Communications Commis»
sion came down hard on CBS. which
broadcast the event. It found the net-
work guilty of airing "indecent" mater—
ial and levied a tine of $550000.

As a federal appeals court recog-
nized Monday in throwing out the
fine. the decision was a gross overre‘
action to an obnoxious but unscripted
display. The fine punished the wrong
party. since CBS had no knowledge
of Timberlake‘s intention and. in fact.
had sent representatives to rehearsals
to make sure nothing was out of line.

In imposing the fine. the FCC
retroactively applied a l)raconian new

members should be thinking of practi-

It was an honest effort by all in-
volved to host the design competition.
We only wish it had come sooner in
the project.

had previously tolerated. It was “arbi-

for the agency to “change a well-es-

The FCC penalty also greatly ex-
aggerated the harm done by the inci—

who merely saw the show live on TV.
the flash was over before it had even
registered in the brain.

The court spent much of its opin—

for their conduct. It concluded that. in
