It’s Labor Day and White is Still All Right!

Labor Day weekend is upon us, and despite the fact that we were just experiencing a heat wave,  come Monday, summer is unofficially at an end. In truth, summer is not really over until the calendar says it is, on or about September 21.  But then, the calendar completely ignores the real indications of the

Fake Views

Mirror, mirror in the store You made me look like a size four But in my home what did I see? A plus-size looking back at me! Please forgive my corny rhyme, but I'm pretty sure this is the question that the Wicked Queen would be posing to her magic mirror if she and Snow

The Right To Bare Arms

Overheard at Saks: Shopper No. 1:“Ooh, that’s such an adorable dress.” Shopper No. 2:  “So why don’t you try it on? Shopper No. 1:  “Are you crazy? It’s sleeveless! As we approach the warmer weather, I am convinced that this scene will be replayed over and over again in boutiques and department stores across the
