TRAVEL ‘N STYLE

PUERTO RICO, BABY! SAN JUAN MARRIOTT RESORT & STELLARIS CASINO By: Cathleen K. Bode • Photos By: Sven J. Bode Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> The oldest city on U.S. territory in Puerto Rico founded in 1521 by Ponce de Leon, San Juan contains approximately half the entire population of the island’s almost four million citizens.The 4-Star resort, with its magnificent Stellaris Casino, contains 525 rooms and was built in 1995 on the beautiful resort-filled, fine white sands of Condado Beach. The Luis Munoz Marin International Airport is a short (4.3 mi.) cab ride away. This smoke-free property is situated near the historic district of Old San Juan, with its wonderfully restored Spanish Colonial architecture and offers a multitude of amenities for the entire family. Guests can enjoy the health club, game room, children programs, Spa, all levels of dining and a casino, just to list a few. On-site, uniformed security is also provided to ensure optimum safety both within the hotel as well as in the parking areas. For a casual, laid back spot to dine, the Beach Bar offers a lunch into late evening menu of burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, salads and of course a tropical drink or two to quench the thirst, if you catch my drift! The ever-popular Coffee Merchant and Bake Shop provides that early morning caffeine ‘jolt’ serving pastries, sandwiches, salads and coffee drinks throughout the day and into early evening. From midday into the late evening hours, those seeking a more relaxed dining experience can enjoy cocktails and a full menu of international fare as well as live music and dancing on selected nights. I decided to indulge in some immediate pampering and visited the quaint Ocean Club Spa for a massage and much needed facial. Needless to say, these treatments do so much to relax ones’ self both physically and mentally, setting the tone for the entire vacation. Wish to try your luck at the games of chance? All that’s necessary is to slither into the beautifully carpeted, furnished and accessorized Stellaris casino, with its gorgeous crystal chandeliers majestically hanging throughout.You will obviously need a pocketful of cash once you settle on the appropriate game you wish to conquer, then immerse yourself into the challenge lying ahead. Remember this, if you are fortunate enough to jump out into a lead, don’t get greedy, take the money and run although one enterprising older gentleman seated at my table advised me to put aside my original investment and then “just have fun with their money”! There are so many other things to do when in San Juan. In addition to the onsite hotel amenities, there are many sightseeing attractions, great restaurants, and exciting nightlife venues.Visit Spanish Colonial towns and tropical forests, engage in water sports of all kinds, from swimming to snorkeling off coral reefs, scuba diving explorations of underwater caves, golf, tennis, horseback riding, boating, hiking, cycling and of course…SHOPPING!

TRAVEL ‘N STYLE ::

To arrange for these activities, we suggest planning thru Travel Services, Inc., an inhouse Destination Management Company (DMC) at the Marriott. From airport transfers to sightseeing trips, tours of water and land-based activities to cooking classes with renowned chefs, TSI can do it all. We opted to take their Kayaking Bioluminescent Bay Tour of Las Cabezas de San Juan, which is located on Road 987 near Las Croabas, at the northeastern-most tip of the island.This Natural Reserve is owned by The Conservation Trust of Puerto Rico and consists of 445 acres of land featuring seven distinct ecosystems including: coral reefs, sandy beaches, sub-tropical dry forests, sea grass beds and one of the few bioluminescent bays in the world.

rience thousands of years of history infused with Spanish, African, Indian and American culture, combined with the modern conveniences of today’s world.

Beginning at sunset our eco-guides got us into our two person kayaks and brought all necessary safety equipment and lights. After receiving pre-ride training covering all aspects of the tour and operation of the kayaks, we paddled to the entrance of a mystical channel leading to an area where the mangroves create natural tunnels. Sounds of wildlife surrounded us. After this 15 to 20 minute paddle under the blanket of night sky, our guide stopped to give commentary on the various points of interest: identification of bird life inhabitants, Marine life using the lagoon as a sanctuary, information on visible stars and an explanation of the bioluminescent micro-organisms that give the water its mysterious light. Awesome! (It might be a good idea to wear a bathing suit beneath your clothing, as you will almost certainly get wet along the way)! The only real downside was that it took 2 ½ hours to travel from the hotel to the Bay along slow winding roads, making three other stops to pick up others from hotels along the way. Might not be a bad idea to chip in with a few others and rent a car for a day otherwise bring your ‘Dramamine’!

• Climate and Time: An agreeable climate is one of Puerto Rico’s most attractive characteristics. Puerto Rico has a tropical marine climate, with an average annual temperature of 80°F (26°C). And enjoys year-round summer temperatures. Uses Atlantic Standard (AST), which is one hour later than Eastern Standard Time (EST). The island does not observe Daylight Savings Time.

• Language: Spanish and English are the official languages. While Spanish is the dominant language, the majority of the local residents speak English. Although a little Spanish is helpful and it’s fun to practice and learn while you are visiting, it is certainly NOT necessary to enjoy your trip.

• Communications and Internet: Phone cards or calling cards and IDD service are readily available. Long-distance services from AT&T, MCI, and Sprint make calling home relatively convenient and let you avoid hotel surcharges. All the major cell phone companies are here. Many of the hotels have wi-fi service available either for a fee or as an included amenity. • Your Money: American Express, Visa, Master Card, Discover and Traveler’s Checks are accepted at featured hotels and most restaurants and shops. ATMs accepting U.S. bank and charge-cards are available in every city and most hotels. • Taxes, Fees & Tips: There is no airport tax levied on arrival or departure. A 7% Sales Tax applies to all consumer purchases but not to most B2B transactions. There are no hidden service fees. The accepted meal gratuity is 15 – 20%. Hotels will often levy a “Resort Fee” on accommodation pricing in addition to the applicable Puerto Rico Hotel Tax of 9 to 11%. • Getting There: Puerto Rico is one of the easiest places to get to.

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 7 YEARS CIRQUE DU SOLEIL RETURNS TO ST. PETERSBURG WITH A BIG TOP PRODUCTION Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> Opens November 8, 2012 for a limited engagement Under the white Big Top at Tropicana Field Cirque du Soleil is thrilled to return to St Petersburg with its big top production, KOOZA. The critically-acclaimed show opens Thursday, November 8 for a limited engagement under the white Big Top at Tropicana Field. Since its premiere in April of 2007, KOOZA has charmed close to 4 million spectators in North America and Japan. KOOZA will be the 4th big top production to visit the area since 2002. Tickets are available online at cirquedusoleil.com/kooza.

cent’s journey brings him into contact with a panoply of comic characters such as the King, the Trickster, the Heimloss, the Pickpocket, the Obnoxious Tourist and his Bad Dog. Between strength and fragility, laughter and smiles, turmoil and harmony, KOOZA is set in an electrifying and exotic visual world full of surprises, thrills, chills, audacity and total involvement. Several of the 53 performing artists in the show have received awards from important circus arts competitions.The show presents an unprecedented approach to the High Wire and a breathtaking Wheel of Death – an act that Cirque du Soleil has never before presented under the big top. THE CREATORS

ABOUT KOOZA Written and directed by David Shiner, KOOZA is a return to the origins of Cirque du Soleil that combines two circus traditions – acrobatic performance and the art of clowning. The show highlights the physical demands of human performance in all its splendor and fragility, presented in a colorful mélange that emphasizes bold slapstick humor. The name KOOZA is inspired by the Sanskrit word “koza,” which means “box,” “chest” or “treasure,” and was chosen because one of the underlying concepts of the production is the idea of a “circus in a box.”

The show brings together the following team of 13 Creators, several of whom are working with Cirque for the first time: David Shiner, Writer and Director; Serge Roy, Director of Creation; Stéphane Roy, Set Designer; Marie-Chantale Vaillancourt, Costume Designer; Jean-François Côté, Composer; Clarence Ford, Choreographer; Martin Labrecque, Lighting Designer; Jonathan Deans, Co-Sound Designer; Leon Rothenberg, Co-Sound Designer; Rogé Francoeur, Props Designer; Danny Zen, Acrobatic Equipment and Rigging Designer; André Simard, Acrobatic Performance Designer; and Florence Cornet, Makeup Designer. SPONSORS

“KOOZA is about human connection and the world of duality, good and bad,” Shiner said. “The tone is fun and funny, light and open. The show doesn’t take itself too seriously, but it’s very much about ideas, too. As it evolves we are exploring concepts such as fear, identity, recognition and power.” The show starts with The Trickster bursting onto the scene like a jack-in-a-box right in front of The Innocent, and that is just the first of many surprises to follow. The Inno-

Cirque du Soleil gratefully acknowledges Infiniti, CGI, XEROX, Sun Life Financial and American Express as the official sponsors of the KOOZA 2012 North American Tour CIRQUE DU SOLEIL From a group of 20 street performers at its beginnings in 1984, Cirque du Soleil is a major Québec-based organization providing high-quality artistic entertainment.

Howl-OScream CELEBRATES AN UNLUCKY 13 YEARS Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> Howl-O-Scream 2012 lures unsuspecting victims to explore the terror that grows behind the Dark Side of the Gardens’ gate and “Unlock the Fear Inside.” As Florida’s toprated Halloween event celebrates its unlucky 13th year, it just may be your own curiosity that seals your fate! Busch Gardens’ 335 acres will be overgrown with dark, sinister, adult-targeted fun, including new haunted houses, scare zones, thrilling live stage shows and the chance to ride adrenalinefueled coasters in the dark, including Florida’s first triple-launch coaster, Cheetah Hunt. Even the streets themselves aren’t safe as insatiable hoards of devious creatures pour forth from the shadows, led by a terrifying Trickster who is scheming to show fans the most horrifying Howl-O-Scream ever. It will leave you begging for mercy… and screaming for more. From 13 sinister superstitions to the claustrophobic halls of an insane asylum, Howl-OScream 2012’s new haunted houses are designed to touch every aspect of your deepest fears: • NEW! Blood Asylum – As lightning rages and thunder crashes outside, “The Creature” escapes from his holding cell in a high-security asylum for the criminally insane. Now this sadistic deviant is running rampant, skinning his former cellmates and turning the mental hospital into his own torture chamber. This serial killer’s bloody playground will drive you out of your mind with fear.

STYLETOME.COM

• NEW! Circus of Superstition 3-D – You’ve tried to avoid black cats and sidewalk cracks, but Trickster will make sure that all those years of bad luck catch up with you! Under his command, crazed circus clowns challenge you to survive 13 superstitions in their 3-D Tent of Terror, but it will take more than luck to escape this whole new dimension of fear. Some of the most demented houses ever are back by popular demand with some horrible new twists: • Ultimate Gamble: CONDEMNED – Vampires have fallen out of vogue and the Ultimate Gamble casino has been shut down. The power is off, and the neon signs that once lit up the sky have gone out. Only the bravest guests dare visit the empty carcass of the once-vibrant casino, grabbing their flashlights to “enter at their own risk.” • Nightshade Toy Factory: MUTATION – The old Nightshade Toy Factory has long been patrolled by diabolical dolls, terrible teddy bears and possessed playthings, but recent containment issues at a nearby nuclear facility have started to affect these terrible toys. Now, the mutations will stop at nothing to devour the humans that have “enslaved” them for so long. • Nevermore – Beating hearts, swinging pendulums and a raven’s cries haunt the manor of Lenore, creating a demented and twisted nightmare. Step inside to experience the gothic terror that maddens the lord of the house, and feel delusion overcome reality. Find your

also lets guests skip the line at five freaky coasters for $50.

• Zombie Mortuary – No one remembers how the epidemic started, but now, zombies live here. The undead that infest this small town funeral home feed on the fresh flesh and brains of mortuary mourners to satisfy their insatiable hunger. Avoid the walking dead or you may find yourself deeper than six feet under.

Looking for a sick party or the perfect souvenir to round out your evening of evil?

The Thrills & Chills Weekend Pass lets true Halloween fans face their fears over and over again with a long weekend (Thursday through Sunday) of unlimited access to Busch Gardens’ thrills by day and Howl-OScream’s chills by night – all for just $79.99! Or, if you need to keep your adrenaline pumping all month long, the Recurring Nightmare Pass offers unlimited Howl-OScream visits on Thursday and Friday nights for just $79.99 (available only at the ticket windows.)

• Alone… (A personal experience in horror) – The deranged Master Alexander Daedalus opened Minotaur Storage to house his vast collection of “cultural” remains. But now his sinister obsession with hoarding has expanded to stockpiling people. Escape this lunatic’s labyrinth or you will become part of his collection. Can you make it out ALONE? • Note: Alone is a unique, all-alone experience through the haunted house for an additional fee. Reservations are required, and each reservation can accommodate you and up to 3 additional victims. Pass member discount does not apply. Not included with any other VIP tour or upgrade product. Howl-O-Scream admission is required, but not included. At Howl-O-Scream, even the sidewalks aren’t safe from the things that go bump in the night.

• CLUB XIII – Escape the hordes and head to the transformed Marrakesh Theater to drive yourself mad partying at Howl-OScream’s exclusive dance club. This adultsonly nighttime playground keeps the energy pumping all night long with non-stop music, premium signature cocktails, drink specials and exclusive appearances by Howl-OScream’s most terrifying personalities. • Howl-O-Scream Shop of Horrors – Remember your evening of undead excitement with a Tricky trinket that’s not for the faint of heart.

> By the time you’re reading this, summer will have just given way to fall. We finished the season off with a bang, dodging Tropical Storm Isaac, as Tampa hosted the Republican National Convention (RNC) at the end of August. Regardless of your political affiliation, it was an exciting time to be in Tampa Bay! During the RNC, Jamestown Entertainment produced a 30,000-square-foot 1 Oak nightclub pop-up at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park. Named after the catch phrase “one of a kind,” 1 Oak is a nightlife staple in NYC and Las Vegas known for its extravagance. The 1 Oak pop-up in Tampa lived up to its reputation, and nearly two thousand guests socialized in the main tent and two adjoining lounges, one of which was a swanky cigar lounge, during the week of the convention. RNC’s senators, congressmen and political activists were treated to a Camp Freddy performance, as Jamestown Entertainment presented a tribute to Bill Edwards in collaboration with 1 Oak on August 28th. Camp Freddy says they are not a band; how-

ever, they are an “occasional happening,” and it’s anyone’s guess what will happen during a performance. The show in Tampa was full of guest appearances, including: actress Juliette Lewis, Mark McGrath of Sugar Ray and Cheap Trick’s Robin Zander. On August 29th, The Hill newspaper hosted a “Women to Watch” party at the 1 Oak pop-up with Beam Inc. and Skinnygirl cocktails. Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly attended and posed for a couple of photos. Also on the 29th, Meghan McCain, Lifetime Television and Variety hosted a party celebrating Republican Women’s Leadership at the Glazer Museum. Country singer Sara Evans performed at the event. Switching gears from schmoozing to shopping, September 6th marked the second annual Fashion’s Night Out (FNO) that Tampa participated in. FNO is a global fashion extravaganza created by Vogue’s Anna Wintour. Bars and restaurants at International Plaza’s Bay Street ran specials and more than 70 stores at International Plaza offered FNO

discounts, promotions and giveaways. Ocean Prime hosted the FNO After Party. On September 13th, the 6th annual Vincent Lecavalier Texas Hold ‘em Celebrity Poker Classic was held at Pepin’s Hospitality Centre. Cards were dealt at 24 tables with at least one “celebrity” playing Texas Hold ‘em at each. Tickets were priced from $150-$500. All of the betting and bluffing benefited the Vincent Lecavalier Pediatric Cancer and Blood Disorders Center at All Children’s Hospital. And for those who indulged in one too many cocktails or hors d’oeuvres at the aforementioned functions, the 10th annual Zoo Run Run, a 5K run/walk held at Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo on September 15th, provided the perfect opportunity to burn some calories! Participants jogged through the zoo and along the Hillsborough River. Children were invited to participate in a “fun run” following the 5K.< Know of a Not-To-Be Missed Event? Do Tell!

> Building a working wardrobe that is easy to coordinate, care for and looks good takes time. Special occasion pieces that can only be worn to one event or do not match anything else are not practical and can waste time and money. This is why some people look at a closet full of clothes and say “I have nothing to wear.” It’s been said you wear 10% of your clothes 90% of the time. The items you do not wear take up valuable closet space and slow you down in the morning. Your wardrobe should make you feel good about yourself, increasing your confidence. If you leave your house knowing you do not match, the clothes do not fit properly, or the only pants that match the top you have on are at the cleaners, you are not going to feel your best. The key is to build your wardrobe around a few staple pieces and limit your selection to 3 or 4 color schemes. Everything should coordinate with almost everything else.

Fashion for the Workweek

I consider the black blazer to be a fashion staple. I reach for it every chance I get. It coordinates with everything from jeans, skirts and T-shirts, and can easily go from day to evening by changing accessories and shoes. It can take you through a workweek Monday through Friday, a special occasion and the weekend. Other fashion staples such as jeans, skirts, and T-shirts will be discussed in a later issue.

A BLACK BLAZER IS… SLIMMING.

Choose one appropriate for your body type: Apple (full middle) – choose a boxy shorter style and wear monochromatic colors under blazer. Pear (full bottom) – select a slightly longer style with back pleat so it does not pull at the fullest area. Hourglass (curvy with a small waist) – wear

STYLETOME.COM

a blazer with princess seaming to define your waist. A BLACK BLAZER IS… VERSATILE.

A lined wool blend blazer can be worn all year long and needs little or no ironing. When cared for properly by professionally dry cleaning, it will last many seasons. Dress it up with silk bottoms or party dress, tasteful jewelry and a metallic clutch. Dress it down with skinny jeans, T-shirt, boots or flats and tote bag. Take a look at our photos for inspiration. Your work environment may be more or less casual. A BLACK BLAZER IS… A FASHION STAPLE.

Layered over a turtleneck it becomes a jacket to keep you warm. Worn over a camisole it is more of a blouse. When you don’t know what to wear or you must travel, this fashion staple is what you should consider. Vivienne Brown, actor and model shared this with me, “Wearing a blazer and shell has become my uniform because it’s easy. I don’t have to think about it. It’s quick and it’s done. I choose suits because they are already put together, all the thinking is done for me.” Cassie Haun, a working mom agreed, she said, “Being a working mother of two boys under the age of five keeps me pretty busy. Having a job in the fashion industry means I have to look ‘put together’ especially when meeting clients, although I don’t always have the time to figure out the right outfit. Having a fashion staple in my closet like a black blazer, allows me the perfect starting point for a great looking ensemble even when I’m in a hurry.” ORGANIZE YOUR CLOSET

Organize your closet according to item and color. Most recently worn items should be in front of each color group. Blazers, tops,


STYLE

dresses, skirts, pants, and jeans should have their own section in the closet. In order to be able to accomplish this task, remove everything and take inventory. Once your closet is empty take your time, vacuum the rug and wash your baseboards. You may consider hanging a well thought-out closet system to maximize space. Hanging your rod as close to the ceiling as possible will allow you to hang a second rod for shirts or pants. Leave only one side for longer dresses. Seasonal items or rarely worn shoes should be stored under your bed out of the way. Now you are ready to start bringing what stays back in. I read once (unfortunately I don’t remember the resource) to turn the hangers from the right way to the wrong way, and each time you wear something hang it correctly. At the end of the year what you have not worn will still be hanging the wrong way. This is an easy way to determine what unworn items need to go, leaving room for what you love and fits well. Determine why that item is seldom worn. Perhaps it needs a button sewn, zipper replaced or stain removed. These are easy fixes. If the item is too large have it altered, if it is too small donate it, give it away or have a yard sale. Too many of us hold onto the size we once were even though the size we are is only a portion of what hangs in our closet. Your clothes should fit today, not when you lose ten or more pounds. If you are considering losing weight and are actively pursuing this, store your smaller clothes in another area of the house for a period of 3 months (or a date you are comfortable with). Be realistic, if at the end of the allotted time you have not met your goal, dispose of the clothes that no longer fit and follow my recommendations.

Some people go by the 3 accessory rule; earrings, necklace and bracelet. I go by the look and feel of what you are wearing. For some outfits one accessory is appropriate. For example, when wearing a strapless fitted dress in a patterned shiny fabric, a choker may be the only thing needed. A plain black dress will require several accessories. How do you store all your accessories? Think outside the box, like moving a small chest of drawers into your closet to store undergarments, scarves, or small handbags. Using drawer organizers will help keep small items from rolling around. Bring items in that are meant for other uses such as cutlery or office trays for keeping like items together. Stylish hatboxes, baskets and wooden wine boxes that can be lined with fabric will keep you organized and add flair to your closet. You may be tempted to keep the closet door open, especially if you bring in a small bench and paint your closet a coordinating shade. Other storage options are: a hope chest at the foot of your bed, vintage luggage stacked and used as a coffee table, or individual clear containers stored in a window seat. I wrote in my book, Modeling At Any Age, “Even a diaper bag with all the compartments and attractive design – not all are pink or blue – will work and will keep you organized in style.” The goal is to make your closet and organizers as simple to use as possible so getting ready for work, an event or packing will no longer be a chore since everything is visible and easy to reach.

ORGANIZE YOUR ACCESSORIES

Accessories can add a punch of color to an otherwise boring outfit, completely changing the look. Knowing when too many accessories are used is something that comes with practice.

Engine: 3.8 liter V8 HP: 616 hp @ 7500 rpm 0-62 mph: 3.1 seconds Top Speed: 204 mph Weight: 3033 lbs

> McLaren Automotive announces the launch of its second model in the MP4-12C family: the stunning new 12C Spider. With a lightweight, high powered engine developing an incredible 625 PS (616 bhp), unique RHT folding roof system that may be operated while on the move, and carbon ‘MonoCell’ chassis identical to that of the groundbreaking 12C, the 12C Spider is a luxury convertible sports car that offers prospective owners a unique combination of spectacular performance with remarkable usability. The new 12C Spider is now available to order from bespoke new McLaren retailers across the globe. First deliveries to customers are planned for November this year. Antony Sheriff, McLaren Automotive Managing Director said: “I am really excited to announce that the new 12C Spider is now available to order at new McLaren retailers worldwide. The launch of our second model is an exciting milestone in the growth of our company. “While the 12C is the technological essence of a race car, the 12C Spider incorporates an additional dimension. 12C Spider owners will love the opportunity to lower the roof and hear the unhindered howl of a V8 twin turbo engine at full throttle. It undoubtedly enhances an already euphoric 12C driving experience. “The 12C Spider delivers all the thrills characteristic of a high performance

roadster, and yet transforms into a raucous track beast at the flick of a switch. I can’t wait to see it on road and track with customers later this year.” BEST-IN-CLASS PERFORMANCE

The 12C Spider’s impressive 625 PS output from its bespoke 3.8-litre V8 twin turbo engine is transmitted to the car’s rear driven wheels through a 7 Speed SSG dual-clutch transmission, which itself provides lightning-fast gear changes through rocker-mounted shift paddles affixed to the rear of the steering wheel. A clear view of the 12C Spider’s lightweight M838T power plant is available through a glass screen positioned behind the tonneau cover. TECHNICAL SPECIFICATION HIGHLIGHTS

McLaren is a carbon pioneer. In 1981 McLaren gave a debut to a carbon fibre monocoque chassis in Formula 1 with the launch of the MP4/1 race car, and in 1992 the legendary McLaren F1 introduced the advanced composite technology to the world of road cars. It was natural then for McLaren Automotive engineers to apply its carbon expertise when developing the groundbreaking one-piece moulded chassis of the 12C. With the 12C designed originally as a convertible, its 75kg ‘MonoCell’ requires no additional strengthening for it to feature in the 12C Spider. The result is a sports car almost identical to its fixed roof equivalent in performance

terms, and weighing only 40kg more with the addition of a convertible roof system. The Retractable Hard Top of the 12C Spider is operated using a switch in the lower section of the centre console inside the cabin, taking less than 17 seconds to raise or lower. Unlike many other convertible models, the roof can be operated whilst the 12C Spider is moving at speeds of up to 30 kph (19mph). Behind driver and passenger sits a rear windscreen which may also be electronically lowered and raised. With the roof lowered this acts as wind deflector to minimise disturbance to the 12C Spider’s occupants. With the roof raised the rear window can be lowered, allowing the exhilarating noise of the 12C Spider’s V8 twin turbo engine to flood the cabin on demand at any time. With the roof raised the area under the tonneau can be used as an additional luggage area which provides 52 litres of useful storage space. Bespoke luggage has been designed specifically to fit this space and is supplied as standard with every 12C Spider. The 12C Spider also features a passive Roll Over Protection System to maximise occupant safety. Each buttress contains a steel structure designed to absorb impact energy and protect both driver and passenger. <

CELEBRITY SOUP

Retail Therapy of the Rich & Famous By: Alyssa Thomann Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> Any excuse for a brand new dress or pair of heels is a good excuse. But when there is no particular occasion for your brand new purchase, just consider it therapy. Retail therapy: shopping with the primary purpose of improving the buyer’s mood or disposition. We are all hard-working women out there, lugging around a lot of stress on our plates.When the chocolate ice cream won’t do the trick, a bit of retail therapy will fit the bill. It is every girl’s favorite hobby- just ask Kate Middleton.This royal lady has been spending more than just her own bucks on some retail therapy. Don’t worry though ladies, you can indulge in some not-so-pricey retail therapy yourselves and still get the exact same looks as some of Hollywood’s A-Listers. If we are talking about retail therapy there is no way we could leave out Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge. A fashion icon expected to always look her best. Her high profile status insists upon lavish, designer clothing to represent her title with class. Recently, we were let into a bit of a royal secret. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are not the ones responsible for the excessive shopping bills that cover the royal wardrobe; the bill has actually been footed by her father-in-law, Prince Charles. Before Prince William and Kate Middleton were married, Prince Charles had agreed to fund Kate’s “working wardrobe.” Recently, it has been publicly announced that his ‘darling daughter-in-law,’ as he likes to call her, has been funded nearly $56,000 in the first six months of this year. This is slightly over half of the $100,000 Prince Charles has allotted for Kate’s annual wardrobe. In addition, Prince Charles also pays the bills for Kate’s personal hairstylist who might we add, tagged along with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge when they recently ventured to Asia to ensure the royal locks are not a bit out of place. Prince Charles is extremely fond of his new daughterin-law, so indulging her is something he’s happy to do. Wouldn’t that be nice?!

Duchess of Cambridge

STYLETOME.COM

Kate’s retail therapy bill is rising daily. This is not only due to the fact that Kate is a busy new royal with a hefty load of events to attend, but also because she refuses to buy anything that isn’t full price. The Duchess has instructed her staff to never accept any of the hundreds of garments sent to her by designers or purchase anything that is less than the going price for the item. When she finds something she likes she instructs her private secretary to purchase it instead. It is no surprise however, just why these designers are so willing to give away their garments for free and why she cannot accept them – Recently, one $600 suit Kate wore to an event sold out in just a half hour!


CELEBRITY SOUP

Natalie Portman

Let’s be real though… Living like ‘royalty’ is perhaps something only the royals can afford. But who said we can’t shop like the rich & famous while still spending within our budget? Let’s check out some celebrities who spend their retail therapy shopping days in stores that we all know that may have the same taste in clothing and price to match! Natalie Portman has shown us that she is not a one-time bargain-hunting gal. She appeared at The New York Times’ 9th annual Arts & Leisure Weekend in a slip dress from Target priced at $39.99. Paired with black leggings, heeled booties and a blazer, she dolled up the dress perfectly to fit the occasion. Let’s not forget Natalie’s appearance on the red carpet wearing a pair of $80 Aldo shoes. In her case, retail therapy does

Kristin Davis

not have to include four zeros at the end of her receipts. Kristin Davis, one of the four flashy, fashion forward stars of ‘Sex & the City’ is another Hollywood A-Lister who knows where to bargain hunt. Kind of ironic, wouldn’t you say? She appeared at the Vanity Fair and Ermenegildo Zegna Dinner in an embroidered, apple green H&M dress, which shows us this lovely woman can get her retail therapy on for just $69.95. Nicki Minaj, Roman, or whatever alter-ego you want to address this star as is a bona fide diva known for her extravagant wardrobe, wigs and makeup. It is a mystery how much she really spends on those eccentric stage costumes. One thing we do know is that this diva does know where to find a bargain and still represent who she is. She

Micki Minaj

appeared on Good Morning America to promote her new MAC product wearing a vibrant color block Forever 21 dress priced at a whopping $27.80! So, there you go ladies – we don’t have to spend a bundle to look “pretty in pink!”oes not add to the outfit. This may have been an attempt to flaunt the season’s hottest color but this is just burgundy gone bizarre. <

She originally came to Florida as a youth, after the family visited an uncle in Fort Lauderdale while on spring break. As with so many transplants the family fell in love with the warmth, greenery and lovely flowers of Florida, and just had to make it their home. Ms. Biecker’s main legal fields of practice as a sole practitioner are: Wills and Trusts, including: Power of Attorney, Living Will and Health Care Directives, Probate, Guardianship. Ms. Biecker has been assisting clients in preparing their estate plans and developing their plans to leave a legacy to their loved ones.

Ms. Biecker has extensive jury trial and bench trial experience and is thus comfortable in a courtroom. She has previously represented numerous individuals as court appointed counsel when their children have been removed from the home by State authorities, or when they have been accused of a crime. She continues to represent individuals who retain her when these events occur. Ms. Biecker devotes her pro bono time through the Legal Aid Society of Orange

SPECIAL PROMOTIONAL FEATURE

County by representing children as a Guardian Ad Litem, when they have been removed from their parent’s home or who are victims or witnesses to crimes. Ms. Biecker received the Legal Aid Society Award of Excellence for her pro bono work in 2000. She has continued to donate time on behalf of these children ever since. Ms. Biecker believes that not only must an attorney be competent, and provide sound, legal advice, but also be compassionate, respectful, and provide counseling that is best for the particular case. When dealing with a divorce case in which children are involved, then the focus must be on the best interest of the children, while still being a strong advocate on behalf of her client. Ms. Biecker tries to minimize the animosity that often occurs in a divorce situation so that the children can lead as normal a life as possible, as well as being sure that the resolution is fair and just for her client. Lastly, Ms. Biecker is also Florida Supreme Court certified mediator in the areas of: Family, Circuit Civil, County Civil and Appellate Law. Ms. Biecker additionally handles mediations in which the parties are “pro se” and thus have no legal representation. Lack of an attorney is not an obstacle to mediation and particularly for a divorcing couple, may be not just more financially feasible, but also help alleviate the anger and frustration of the process. Oftentimes, the parties may want to mediate prior to filing a lawsuit in order to attempt to resolve their differences before expending large sums of money with attorneys and court proceedings. Ms. Biecker is happy to help in that regard. BAR ADMISSIONS:

This is Not a Trick, Treat Yourself to Less Time at the Gym By: Cathleen K. Bode Credits: Wendy Schauben Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> Halloween is coming up, and ladies you know what that means. Before you can cuddle up (or hide under a blanket) watching “The Shining” and feasting on left over Reese’s, there are some costume parties to prepare for. Use those invitations sitting on the counter to serve as your October motivation. It’s time to break out an ensemble that turns the head of every firefighter, frat boy, and ex-president in attendance. The skimpiest and most daring attire surely calls for a revved up workout plan. Take your workout to the next level with interval training. This type of exercise not only will enhance your typical gym visit, but it can also boost your metabolism. The International Journal of Obesity concluded that interval training burns the stubborn fat around your waistline. Shakira costume, anyone? Interval training blends

STYLETOME.COM

a high intensity workout with recovery periods of less intense cardiovascular exercise. Through this mix, your body is able to fend off being tired by processing lactic acid as it adds up. Putting to use the short term energy systems in your body on a constant basis will enable you to push harder at each workout, and in effect, burn more calories and fat. Another plus is that interval training is perfect for women who don’t have hours to spend at the gym, the efficiency of this workout is astounding; fifteen minutes of interval training may accomplish more than an hour of jogging. Here are some tips for slipping into that Katniss Everdeen’s fitted black bodysuit: On the treadmill, jog for a minute and then sprint for the next; pushing your body to its aerobic threshold and then recovering will result in more of a calorie burn. Channel your inner child and jump rope as fast as you can for two minutes, then recover with some old tricks you remember from ‘way back when.’ Most machines will have an option titled “Interval” that will alternate resistance and speed, opt for this setting and start out at a beginner’s level and work your way up. Sign yourself up for a spinning class that works in intervals. Sprints and climbs will also shed the pounds. If you’re really brave, dive into

the pool and alternate between swimming like a shark’s after you and free style back slowly. Pair these workouts with plenty of water and some metabolism boosting foods such as fruits, nuts, eggs, lean beef or poultry, or grab a half of a sandwich and eat it 30 minutes before your workout and eat the other half within 30 minutes after your workout. The importance is that you eat 30 minutes before and within 30 minutes after your workout. This will help you burn more calories during your workout without sacrificing lean muscle tissue and leaving you burned out. After your workout it will replenish the nutrients that you’ve lost thru sweat, and fortify your muscles from the wear and tear. To be safe, warm up before and stretch after any exercise, and make sure to keep up with your regular exercise regimen and slowly incorporate interval training two to three times a week. Whether Halloween parties are your forté, or you’re more of a trick-or-treater, you will look fantastic in that ‘I Dream of Jeannie’ costume you’ve been hiding in your closet! Always check with your doctor before starting any exercise program.<

Zumba

THE FUN WAY TO LOSE WEIGHT! By: Riesa Pascal Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> Tired of lifting weights? Don’t have a single athletic bone in your body? In desperate need of motivation to hit the gym? If your answer’s “yes,” then you might be like me and not a big fan of working out. Or at least I used to be that way until I discovered a new, different way to exercise. Do you like to dance? Perhaps a better question would be, “Who doesn’t?” Music and dancing is a universal enjoyment and one that I’m very fond of myself. For that reason alone, I said yes when a friend invited me to a Zumba class at our local gym one afternoon. It was supposed to be a one-time class for me, but fours years later I still enjoy – and constantly talk about – this fun way to lose weight and party yourself into shape. Zumba is an easy-to-follow, Latin-inspired, calorie-burning dance party and it’s downright addictive! Since its’ humble beginnings over 10 years ago, Zumba has been moving millions of people towards a healthy lifestyle of high-energy dancing. Zumba was “accidentally” created by Alberto “Beto” Perez when he left to teach an aerobics class one fateful day in the mid90s. Once he arrived and realized he had forgotten his aerobics music, he decided to improvise by using his own mix of salsa and merengue tapes that were in his backpack. His class loved the new workout formed by the change of music and on that day, Zumba Fitness was born. Today the Zumba program offers eight different types of Zumba classes: Zumba Fitness fuses easy rhythms and high-energy dance steps with fun, Latin and international beats. Zumba Gold targets baby boomers. It takes the Zumba formula and modifies the moves and pacing to suit the needs of older participants, as well as those just starting out on their journey to a fit and healthy lifestyle. In Zumba Toning, students learn how to use lightweight, maraca-like Toning Sticks to target and tone all their target areas while

following Latin-infused Zumba moves. Aqua Zumba is also known as the Zumba “pool party.” It combines the fun of dance fitness with traditional aqua fitness techniques. Zumbatomic classes are designed exclusively for children ages 4-12. The routines are kid-friendly and feature all the popular music they love. Zumba in the Circuit combines circuit training (a series of strength exercises at timed intervals) with the traditional Latininspired Zumba moves. Zumba Gold-Toning classes help baby boomers as well as beginners build muscle strength and improve their all around physical health with Zumba dance moves and lightweight resistance training. The Zumba Sentao workout fuses the traditional Zumba party with chair-based choreography to strengthen your core. Zumba has grown to become the world’s largest and most successful dance-fitness program. There are over 12 million people of all shapes, sizes and ages taking weekly Zumba classes in over 110,000 locations across more than 125 countries. There’s Zumbawear™ apparel and accessories, music CDs, and a best-selling at-home fitness DVD: The Zumba Fitness® Total Body Transformation System. In 2010, Zumba even became the first branded fitness program to launch a video game on all three major gaming platforms:Wii, Xbox, and PS3. Zumba is the ideal workout for people who don’t enjoy traditional fitness classes. It is the perfect exercise for anyone who loves to move to red-hot, high-energy music. It is fun, exciting and best of all, good for you! Whether it’s for health reasons or just the pure joy of joining a massive dance party, try out a Zumba class today and be a part of the movement that’s moving the world into shape.

Endodontic Therapy

TALKING ROOT CANALS WITH DR. ERIC WU By: Dr. Carl Bilancione Comprehensive & Cosmetic Dentistry, PA

might be restorable. If a crack is involved in the root in most cases the tooth cannot be salvaged and extraction is required.

Is root canal procedure painful?

Who should do my root canal?

Most teeth can be anesthetized profoundly and the patient does not experience discomfort. Some patients might require additional volume of anesthetic solution or extra time to develop adequate numbness. After the procedures the tooth could become sensitive to pressure for a few days. Taking anti-inflammatory medication usually relieves the discomfort significantly. In some abscess cases your dentist might also prescribe an antibiotic to control the infection.

All dentists including general dentist have been trained to perform root canal treatment. However, endodontists receive an additional two years in advanced training and they often utilize the newest technology such as digital imaging, and operating microscopes, combined with specialized technique and instruments to eliminate dental pain and infection quickly and comfortably.

Dr. Carl Bilancione & Staff

> Endodontic therapy is commonly known as root canal treatment which is to treat the diseased pulp tissue inside the root canal. The pulp tissue contains tiny blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue. It is very important during the growth and development of the tooth because vital pulp tissue creates new tooth structure inside the root canal. The pulp tissue could be irritated or damaged by deep decay, repeated dental procedures or perhaps a crack in the tooth. Any irritation to the pulp could cause inflammation or infection inside the root canal which would become painful or abscess. There are several very common questions asked in regard to root canal treatment. How do I know I need a root canal? If the pulp of a tooth is damaged it usually has prolonged sensitivity to cold and hot, spontaneous toothache, discoloration of the tooth, swelling or tenderness in the nearby gum or face. If any of these symptoms occur an evaluation with your dentist is usually recommended. What is involved in root canal treatment? After an accurate diagnosis, the tooth is opened to get access to the root canal space. The diseased or damaged pulp is removed and the canal space is shaped and cleaned before the next step of filling and sealing the canal space. Then you return to your general dentist to restore the tooth with a filling or a crown what ever your

STYLETOME.COM

How long does it take to treat a root canal? Depending upon the complexity of the root canal system and whether there is an abscess or not it could take longer time to prepare complicated or difficult canals. Usually root canal treatment is completed in one or two visits. A recent research article published in the AAE found two visit root canal procedure, with medication in canals for one week before completion, can reduce the amount of bacteria significantly more than a one visit procedure especially when the root canal has been infected.Your dentist should be able to decide which procedure will bring best results for you. How do I know if my tooth is cracked? We have found more cracked teeth in patients in recent years. The tooth structure can be cracked or chipped if excess pressure is applied on the tooth such as grinding or clenching or biting on a hard object such as candy and ice cubes. Any type of blow to the jaw during a sporting activity or auto accident could also cause a tooth to crack. If the tooth is cracked it might start to be sensitive to temperature, sweets, or pressure.

Dr. Palceski – Ask The Expert: 5 Bad (Skin Care) Habits To Avoid As a dermatologist, I am so passionate about skin care and know first-hand that great skin is achievable. However, there are a few bad habits that I see over and over again in my practice that really effect how healthy your skin looks and feels. Here is my list of the top 5 “BAD” skin care habits I see most often along with some advice for turning those bad habits into good ones. BAD SKIN CARE HABIT #1: OVERLOOKING MOLES

Dr. Palceski looks forward to hearing from you and will be accepting questions at drp@reflectionsdermatology.com or call 407-895-8818 Dr. Palceski is a Board Certified Dermatologist and Dermatologic Surgeon and is the founder of Reflections Dermatology & Center for Skin Care. For more information on Dr. Palceski or his practice, please visit www.reflectionsdermatology.com

A study conducted by the National Cancer Institute showed that fifty percent more melanoma cases occurred in women ages 15 to 39 in 2011 than in 1980. The lesson here? Everyone needs to get a skin cancer screening by a dermatologist once a year. You should also check yourself every month, remembering to examine less-obvious places such as your scalp, the soles of your feet, and under your nails. My suggestion, get your birthday suit checked on your birthday. BAD SKIN CARE HABIT #2: NEGLECTING YOUR NECK AND CHEST

Skin care shouldn’t stop at your jawline. These areas are almost always exposed yet rarely receive the same level of hydration and sun protection as the face. In fact, the skin on your neck and chest is actually more delicate and just as vulnerable to photoaging. The fix is simple: The next time you apply moisturizer, fa-

cial serum, or sunscreen to your face extend everything down to your décolletage. BAD SKIN CARE HABIT #3: NOT WASHING YOUR FACE AT NIGHT

Letting skin marinate in makeup— not to mention a day’s worth of oil buildup—can lead to clogged pores and breakouts, especially if you’re prone to acne. As you sleep, your body temperature increases slightly which can enhance absorption of whatever’s on the surface. So, wash your face every night and consider using a Clarisonic® Brush proven to remove 6 x more dirt, oil, and makeup than manual cleansing alone. BAD SKIN CARE HABIT #4: PICKING BLEMISHES

You’ve gotten the same advice since you were a teenager - “Don’t pick!” Picking blemishes not only extends the healing process of a blemish from approximately 1 week to 2, but it can also cause darkening of the skin and scarring. The older you get, the longer it takes for your skin to

heal. So, “stop picking” and go see a dermatologist who will work with you to get you on a good skin care regimen to fight breakouts. Some over the counter products I like include Glytone® Gel or Cream wash and Avene® Clean-Ac Moisturizer. BAD SKIN CARE HABIT #5: TANNING

Self-tanner? Great! The real thing? Not so great! Any pigment change from UVA or UVB light can cause premature aging and increase the likelihood of developing skin cancer. Tanning beds can be even worse, since they emit concentrated UVA light, which has been found to penetrate deeper than the combination of UVA and UVB rays found in natural sunlight. In fact, tanning beds have been found to increase one’s risk of developing melanoma by 76% and are considered on par with arsenic and mustard gas in the top cancer risk category. Your best bet? Avoid tanning beds, use a self tanner, and protect your skin every day by applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 30.

SPOTLIGHT ON THE LAW

GOVERNMENT TARGETS OFFSHORE BANK ACCOUNTS BY MARK L. HORWITZ > Citizens face harsh civil and criminal penalties for not reporting offshore bank accounts.The penalties include 50% of the value of the account for each year that the account is not disclosed, and up to 5 years in prison.

Government efforts to detect offshore accounts are two-fold. First, it is forcing offshore financial institutions to disclose accounts of U.S. citizens through new treaties and laws. Second, the IRS has reinstated the Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program (OVDP), which provides amnesty from criminal prosecution and significantly reduces the monetary penalties. This dual approach is designed to increase tax collection otherwise lost due to unreported offshore accounts.

zerland (UBS), Credit Suisse, HSBC and Bank Leumi le-Israel have been or will be forced to disclose accounts to the IRS. Once account information is received by the IRS, the OVDP is no longer an option. An account holder can still enter the OVDP after the IRS demand on the bank is made, but before the records are sent to the IRS. The U.S. Department of Justice has filed criminal charges against scores of people with unreported offshore accounts. These prosecutions underscore the importance of entering the 2012 Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program before it is too late.<

PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL DISEASE [PAD] BY CHARLES S.C. GARNETTE, M.D., F.A.C.S.

PAD affects 12% of the general population in the US, and ~20% of people over the age of 70 years old. With our aging population, these statistics are expected to increase in the near future.

Peripheral Arterial Disease is most commonly caused by atherosclerosis, a disease in which plaque builds up in the wall of an artery, resulting in the narrowing (stenosis) or blockage of the artery, thus limiting blood flow. It most commonly involves the arteries of the pelvis and the legs. Although the heart is usually the focus of discussions of atherosclerosis, this disease affects arteries throughout the body. Thus, PAD is related to Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and Carotid Artery disease in that all three are caused by the same disease process, atherosclerosis, and involve blockage of the arteries.

While many people with peripheral arterial disease have mild or no symptoms, some develop leg, thigh or buttock pain while walking (intermittent claudication) which resolves after a few minutes of rest. Other more severe symptoms include pain in legs and feet at rest or when lying down, ulcers on toes, feet and legs that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t heal, and development of gangrene. PAD can ultimately lead to limb loss and can even be life threatening. Other symptoms of PAD include weak or absent pulses in legs and feet, hair loss on feet and legs, numbness and weakness in legs and erectile dysfunction. Factors increasing risk of developing PAD include smoking, diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity, high blood pressure, increasing age, excessive levels of homo-

cysteine, and a family history of peripheral artery disease, heart disease, or stroke. It is notable that people who smoke or have diabetes have the greatest risk of developing peripheral artery disease. Treatment of PAD is focused first on risk factor modification, i.e. Quit smoking, exercise regularly, lower your cholesterol and blood pressure levels, dietary modification and maintaining good blood sugar control. For truly symptomatic PAD, consultation with a Vascular Surgeon is essential to have the benefit of the best surgical or interventional treatment options available.

anything else. I am proud to be a trusted financial advisor, consultant and friend to my clients. WHAT IS ONE OF YOUR MOST MEMORABLE CLIENT RELATIONSHIPS?

One of the most memorable impacts I have had has been with a loyal client of mine. He first came to me looking for advice on a retirement plan and group insurance for his employees. I was able to create a custom plan that covered everything including establishing a 401(k) plan and selecting group health, disability and life insurance for all of his employees. The plan I selected not only benefited his employees greatly, but also benefited him as a business owner. Being an independent financial advisor, I was able to use products and services from a variety of different companies. The benefit of selecting an independent financial advisor is that we can choose the companies we want to do business with, which in turn assures that my clients will get the products and services that make the most sense for their unique situation. In 2011, this particular client had an offer to sell his business. He sought me out immediately to assist in negotiating the terms of the sale. Upon the sale of the business I had the opportunity to work hand and hand with this gentleman and his family to create a retirement income strategy and secure an estate plan for his assets and family. < Actual investment results may be more or less than those shown.

DON‘T MISS THE BEAT

tonoff, all three musicians have spent time in different music groups before, and after a while they found their way to rock together. In 2008 they made their move to rally and generate awesome music. Nate is the group’s lead vocalist, Jack contributes also to vocals and provides guitar and drum skills, while Andrew keeps the melodies going with playing a variety of instruments. When you combine these three separate abilities to do what they do well, you get magic.

> DON’T MISS THE BEAT

Brandy Album: Two Eleven

The first album they put out in 2009 was entitled Aim and Ignite. Ignite indeed; an interest to hear more was born. The album hit different charts and got the fun started. Best described as having a Pop/Indie approach people wanted to hear what would be next. Then, in February of this year their second album Some Nights unveiled songs and sounds that instantly caused excitement. The first song delivered is a catchy tune called “We Are Young” and it covers all the bases of exactly that; being young is a time where many feel every day is a chance to live and be free from anything prohibiting a good time. The song was perfectly available for traditional graduation times of the year and the words match exactly that transitional time of life. Crowd pleaser for sure, the enchanting song placed strong as the #1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. This is especially meaningful because this marked the first time since 2008 that an alternative song topped the list. This defining moment meant fun. was absolutely in the house.

and also peaked at number 5 on the Hot 100 chart. With such a huge contribution to the music world, Nate, Jack and Andrew have earned every bit of this recognition. Another really fun thing about these guys comes back to their style of dressing. Whether they are performing on stage or sitting in a late night talk show host’s chair, the guys have an extremely unique way of dressing. Everything from suspenders, to cute rimmed glasses, sunglasses and distinctive t-shirts fit into the fellas’ wardrobes. At times they have a doo-wop appeal and on stage especially it just makes their performance that much more on a level of greatness. Their ability to bring this style to the stage is also apparent every time a performance occurs. The energy, the thrill, the way you feel a part of their show is no mistake. These guys understand the importance of what they are doing and how the music they give to the world creates happiness. That is a gift not all musicians realize so early on and to say these guys are only getting started, that would be a huge understatement.

“One thing is for certain, they truly give the impression they are all about exactly what they’re known for, and that is fun.” As for what else is going on, fun. is sharing exactly that emotion through a world-wide tour, various stops among late night shows promoting the jams they make, and also checking in with various award shows to both perform and retrieve honors as they earn them. Already among their collection of wins would include the Teen Choice Awards where the guys brought home the wins for Choice Rock Group and Choice Single by a Group for “We Are Young.” With numerous other nominations from several outlets it is safe to say other awards should be added to the fun. collection soon. In the meantime, these guys are going to keep doing what they do best and that is generating crowd-pleasing compositions that promote enjoyment and exhilaration. After all, Nate, Andrew and Jack are just doing what they do: having fun.<

THE MYTH BEHIND WEARING WHITE AFTER LABOR DAY By: Jessica Sanchez Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> Chances are you didn’t spend the day after Labor Day feverishly ridding your closet of all your white clothes, which is good because you know that whole “no wearing white after Labor Day” thing? Yeah, that‘s no longer a thing. In fact, this year you’ll look sillier than Clint Eastwood playing musical chairs if you DON’T wear white after Labor Day. That’s according to the fashion experts who also warn that wearing white is fine ONLY if it’s a heavier fabric like denim; stay away from lightweight fabrics like linen or you’ll make puppies cry. More than likely this month you paused to consider if you should hold off on wearing white. It seems like the ban on white after Labor Day has become one of those vague fashion no-no’s ingrained in us since we were old enough to care about what other people think, which is strange considering very few people even know why it was so frowned upon. It wasn’t just a rule Wookies invented to get back at Stormtroopers, there are several theories on how this supposed breach of etiquette came about. One explanation has to do with good oldfashioned practicality. White is supposedly a “cool” color that keeps the heat at bay, which was important back in the days before electric fans or air conditioning. Modesty was still a virtue, making white the color of choice in the summer for women who were centuries away from feeling pressured by the media to wear tube tops and skinny jeans therefore they donned longsleeved blouses and layered skirts. There was also the issue of keeping your clothes clean which was harder to do when the fall rains turned dirt roads into mud pits. So, as some historians will tell you, come September women would turn in their cool, white

flowing gowns, for warmer, dark-colored shawls and over time the idea of wearing white after Labor Day simply became a fashion faux pas. Adding to this theory as we got into the 1900s was the fact that designers who called the shots on fashion trends hailed from, where else, New York. For them, invigorating spring temperatures led to hot summers, which gave way to wet falls and eventually freezing winters. So fashion gurus and editors designed magazine layouts and fads based on their own seasonal comfort; perhaps they either didn’t know or didn’t care about climates in other parts of the country - even back then New Yorkers probably didn’t consider anywhere else a “real city” - so naturally they couldn’t fathom why anyone in, say, Florida would still want to wear a light dress in October. The only problem with the above theories is that they sound too logical for fashion. We are a species that wore painfully dramatic corsets and eventually learned how to squeeze silicon balloons through a slit in our nipples, I hardly think we’re going to begin a fashion trend based on the fact that it’s more comfortable and practical. A more common explanation for the ban on white after Labor Day points to the late 1800s and the age-old tradition of wellrounded rich people wanting to look even more well-rounded and rich. During the summer they’d leave the city and vacation at their seaside villas where the men would wear white linen suits and the women would don white lace and silk gowns. In September they’d return to their city homes and have their servants shake out their darker fall clothes. Labor Day marked the return

from vacation and white clothing became symbolic of leisure. Those in high society began to scoff at those who wore white after Labor Day thinking it distinguished the respectable old-money families from the boorish new-money fools. It was basically as tacky as, say, a lottery winner wearing a real fur coat to the Kentucky Derby, or Lady Gaga wearing a meat dress to… well, pretty much anywhere. Whether any of these theories are true or not, my own personal theory is that such a silly trend would’ve gone the way of corsets a long time ago were it not for designers and retailers cleverly seizing the opportunity to remind fashion-conscious consumers to buy a new wardrobe because - even if you didn’t know why - wearing white after Labor Day made you look like a rock-banging Neanderthal, which was fine if those were the kind of circles you wanted to run in. <

BEST FRIENDS

5

Must Have Pet Accessories By: Riesa Pascal • Read more at: StyleToMe.com

5. THIRSTY NO MORE! > Whether it’s at the park or the mall, most of us don’t leave the house without bringing a bottle of water or at least buying one once we get to our destination. Shouldn’t we do the same for our four-legged friends? Accessory #5 is a portable and reusable doggie drinking bowl. It folds into itself when not in use and even has a belt strap for easy carry. Perfect for making sure your pet never thirst outside again!

4. ANYONE HERE LOVE STEPPING IN DOG POO? I’m fairly confident I speak on behalf of everyone when I say none of us enjoy finding pet waste around us. Yet for some reason I still manage to see dogs doing it everywhere while a shocking number of their owners just look the opposite way. C’mon folks, let’s be considerate of each other and pick up after our pets. I beg this to you on behalf of every single person who’s ever stepped in dog poo or found another dog’s poo in their yard. Accessory #4 is the perfect solution to this smelly, unsightly problem. For those who don’t mind close contact, check out the adorable bone shaped doggie bag holder pictured above. For the squeamish, consider a pooper scooper such as the one pictured to the left. which can even be bought with a long or short handle. 3. AH, THERE’S SOMETHING IN MY EYE! Dogs are notorious for sticking their heads out our car windows and we love to let them. Can you blame Spot for wanting to see the beautiful, fast moving world outside? It’s clear they enjoy it, but unfortunately it isn’t safe for us to continue letting our dogs do this. At least, not without protection and that’s where accessory #3 comes in. Doggles are the first and only eyewear designed and made just for dogs.You may think you drive slow enough for your dog not to need these, but studies show damage can occur to your pups eye at any speed so why even risk it?

2. IT’S GETTING HOT IN HERE. SO TAKE OFF ALL YOUR... FUR? Okay, let’s face it guys. Florida has spoiled us. We go outside almost any day of the year and soak up the sun to our heart’s content. Then once we’ve had enough of it we simply go inside any restaurant, store, business, car or home and get blasted in the face with AC. Feeling cool anywhere you go is a great feeling and now your dog can feel it too with accessory #2, a detachable crate fan cooling system. Now Spot is a REAL Floridian!

1. A TRUE ORLANDO-STYLE PET! Okay, #1 is clearly not a necessity category, but I couldn’t resist! Most of us enjoy turning heads when we go out for good reasons. So, if we wouldn’t leave the house without looking our best, let’s do the same for our pets. We love them so much that they become an extension of us, so let’s start making sure that extension is constantly getting the attention it deserves with random, adorable pet fashion accessories! <

Our Town AGES, a hilarious, feel-good love story told through the hit songs of iconic rockers Journey, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Foreigner, Pat Benatar, Whitesnake, and many more. Don’t miss this awesomely good time about dreaming big, playing loud and partying on when it returns to Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater for two exclusive performances Saturday, October 6 at 5 and 9pm.

After 13 years of marriage, writers, actors, and real-life-married-couple Annabelle Gurwitch (“Dinner and a Movie,” Fired!) and Jeff Kahn (The Ben Stiller Show, Forty Year Old Virgin) have adapted their hilarious, often moving, memoir, You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up! for the stage. In the 75-minute tour de force, You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up!, takes a humorous look at a relationship that seemed doomed by opposing personalities from the start. After trials and tribulations they learn to navigate the conflicts that come with romance, money, and children by embracing each other’s differences, taking on parenting as a competitive sport, and dropping out of couple’s therapy. Their delightfully crazy lifestyle has managed to keep their relationship intact, up-ending every idea you ever had about living “happily ever after.” Now thru October 14 at Various Times David A.

COCKTAIL HOUR

Barfly

Read more at: StyleToMe.com

> So you want to wipe the dust off of that old bar recipe book your parents had and find a killer retro recipe. We have heard that magic word “retro,” to explain all matters of things. It gets hung in front of words such as music, style, or art to give something that throwback moniker. I think it fits quite nicely hanging out in front of the word cocktail like a dare to pour the past in the present. The bar business has seen many classic cocktails stand the test of time throughout the years. You always have your Manhattan or classic martini nestled comfortably among restaurant menus. The fun thing is to dig into those old recipe books and pull out a true retro-cocktail. I think we are at a time when you can see a shift on many bar menus. Fading away are the extravagant and crazy conception drinks that spilled over the last few years. Don’t get me wrong I think there is always a need for creativity and playfulness on most drink lists. It could just be a result of a simpler time reflected in our everyday lives that is steering the retro cocktails to the forefront. Whatever the reason I for one am happy to see the simplifying of drinks happening.

STYLETOME.COM

The focus is still there of delivering a satisfying and tasty beverage to the person sitting on the other side of the bar. Pulling recipes from our past can accomplish that goal as well as giving a history lesson for our taste buds. Do yourself a favor and go to a bookstore or raid your parent’s old bookshelves to find some old party host books or cocktail books. There is a wealth of knowledge inside that shows how to deliver great flavors and to do it in a simpler fashion. One of the books I get a kick out of is Playboy’s Host and Bar Book by Thomas Mario. Not only does it have some cool retro recipes but the reading alone is captivating. It is written in the fifties with numerous reprints throughout the years. The explanations on how to be a good host alone are worth its weight in gold. You will notice a focus on ingredients that make sense once you start building these cocktails for yourself and your friends. There is an ingredient list that is filled with fresh fruit juices, sweet syrups and even egg whites that transport you to a time and place that focuses on the simple nuances of flavor that make a drink shine. The Hemingway Daiquiri, for example, is screaming to

be made poolside for your friends to enjoy. It is made with white rum, maraschino liquor and grapefruit juice to start. Throw in a little simple syrup and a squeeze of lime and you have the perfect poolside cocktail. If you want something a little more grown up or you are actually hosting a party with the aforementioned Playboy book try a Between The Sheets. All you need is some V.S. cognac, Cointreau and retro liquor by the name of Benedictine. Benedictine makes up one half of the better known B and B however you can find this at your local liquor store. Squeeze a little bit of fresh lemon juice and voila, your retro-cocktail is ready to consume. The one thing for sure about the retrococktail is there are plenty of choices out there. I encourage you to find your favorites and get your friends together to test them out. More often than not I would be willing to bet they are happy to oblige and happier even still after trying the cocktail you saved from the past. Just remember the retro thing is fun but polyester suits and funny looking moustaches, not so much.<

Let this be a warning to eyesores everywhere. A boldly designed car deserves a boldly designed world. The Audi A7 is setting a whole new standard and inviting the world to catch up. Take one look at the sweeping low profile that defines this iconic five-door coupe. Witness the distinctive LED headlights and experience the closest re-creation to daylight yet*. It’s obvious that no ordinary road will do. Learn more at audiusa.com/A7. The Audi A7 is here.

Luxury has progressed.

The Traffic Light, redesigned by Cheng-Tsung Feng

Classic Audi 900 S.R. 434 South, Altamonte Springs, FL (407)992-4321 ClassicAudi.com *Based on brightness comparison to the sun and 5,500 K burning temperature.
