FIVE SECRETS TO THE PERFECT PAIR OF

CROPPED

PANTS Cropped pants, pedal pushers, capris, clamdiggers, shorts…. They may be known by many names but these short pants have become known and loved by women of all ages, shapes and sizes, and with good reason. Cropped pants offer a cool alternative to full-length trousers or jeans, and are perfect for summer weather. Capri pants became popular in the 1960’s with the Mary Tyler Moore show, and caused a bit of a stir. Today, Capris and cropped pants of all lengths have gone mainstream and are right on trend. Years ago, before I became a style coach and know what I know today, I had a pair of cropped pants that made me feel frumpy. The rise was too low, giving me a muffin top. The hemline stopped at the widest point of my calves and made my legs look much heavier than they were. And the whole look was just not right. Yet somehow I convinced myself to buy these horrible pants and wear them because I felt that I ‘should’ be able to pull off cropped pants, and that if I just lost a few pounds they’d be perfect. Written by Mary Michele Nidiffer Founder, StyleFinder Boutique www.ShopStyleFinder.com

20 | triangle style


When wearing them on vacation, I remember feeling awful in them. But I was determined to wear what I had spent my hard-earned money on. Once home, I took a long look at a picture of myself in the pants and recoiled in horror. While I had no idea why they didn’t work (I thought it was because I was too fat), I got rid of the pants then and there. Years later, I found out why they weren’t right for me – and what I could have done differently - and now I want to save you from making the same mistake. While cropped pants may be popular, there is no one style that is right for everyone. There are several important factors that should be taken into consideration to ensure that you’re getting the best look for you. Finding the best style for your body isn’t just a matter of luck, or being born with legs for days. What matters is proportion. Once you crop your pants, the ratio of pant to leg becomes an important factor. When done right, your cropped pants can make you look inches taller and pounds thinner.

SlimSation offers you comfortable slimming style with a flexible tummy control panel. The figure flattering fashion secret gives you a smooth, slim figure, making you feel 10 pounds lighter in seconds.

FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES AND YOU’LL NAIL IT EVERY TIME:

THE HEMLINE IS KEY

Where the hemline of your pants hits your leg is the number one consideration when determining what’s right for you. Make sure the hemline ends at the narrowest part of your leg. If it stops at the widest part of your calf, your legs will appear larger and shorter. Do not leave this to chance, for this can make your legs look much shorter/heavier than they are if it stops at the widest point.

STYLE FIT+ Perfect At Any Age

To determine where your pants should fall, find the widest point of your calf – this is where your pants should NOT stop. You want the hem of your pants to hit you above or below this line. Typically, just under the kneecap is more narrow and makes a good stopping point. If your calves are on the heavy side, then opt for ankle-grazing pants. With so many lengths of cropped pants available, don’t settle for one that isn’t right. Find one that is or have the longer pair tailored to suit you.

TAPERED OR FLARED

When your cropped pants are tapered, or slim-fitting, they create a harmonious silhouette against your leg. In short, the eye is drawn vertically and they have a slimming effect. A slight flare at the hemline can work for you as well, but avoid a full-on flare as it can create a horizontal visual, cutting your leg off and shortening you. Plus, you run the risk of looking like you’re wearing high-waters. A skinny or straight leg is your best bet. I’ve been putting many of my clients with a little extra around the middle in our skinny crops paired with a longer tunic and the effect is astounding! While the tunic has to be the right cut, a longer top that covers your bottom, it can visually take off pounds!

OFF THE CUFF

CAMERON VILLAGE 437 Daniels St., Raleigh (919) 787-9073

Cuffs on cropped pants and shorts can make your legs look heavier, and therefore are best on those with long, nimble legs. If your legs are shorter or heavier, staying away from a cuff is your best bet. If you do choose a cuff, select a cuff with a width that is proportionate to you. If you’re tall, you can wear a deeper cuff. If you’re of average height, a more narrow cuff will look better for you.


LOW CONTRAST

Take into consideration the contrast between your pants, shoes and skintone when wearing cropped pants. When you keep your pants and shoes in a tone not too far from your own skin, you create a lengthening effect. Dark pants create a stark contrast against pale skin. To counter the effect, keep your footwear in a color closer to your skintone than to your cropped pants. Many of my clients want to wear black cropped pants, but they don’t realize that the contrast with their pale skin is very harsh, especially when worn with black shoes. It is anything but slimming, and just not flattering. A white, midtone or bright would be a much better choice, paired with sandals in a nude or metallic tone. Teal and turquoise can also be a great choice for shoe colors, as these are ‘skin intensifiers’ and look gorgeous against your skin.

STYLE FIT+ Perfect In Any Size

SHOE IN

The shoes you sport with your cropped pants can have a big impact on your overall look. To create an elongated leg-line pair your cropped pants with heels or some of the season's hottest wedges. Flat shoes can give this look a dowdy appearance. Opt for a sandal, pump, wedge or flat-form to give you a little height while making you look sleek and chic! So now your only real dilemma with wearing cropped pants should be choosing a color! You’ll look chic and keep your cool too!

When we shop, we don't often think about how the store we’re in started or what the people behind it went through to get where they are. And when we meet business owners, we likely never consider whether or not they are involved in charity work nor think about all of the things they do to help our community. We spoke with Lisa Kornstein of Scout and Molly’s (above) and Alli Leggett (left) of the Pink Alli and the specific causes they support. WRITTEN BY HEATHER GREEN 24 | triangle style


LOCAL FACE OF MS

Scout & Molly’s (scoutandmollys.com) is one of the hottest boutiques in the Triangle. Owner Lisa Kornstein has used this super shop to help one of the most well known charities in the US: the National MS Society.

Launching in 2002, the Scout & Molly's boutique is named after Kornstein’s two Labradors. The business has grown over the years and is now franchising nationwide – with thirty-one locations including a Manhattan shop opening in the fall of 2015. Kornstein has two children, four dogs, and is marrying the love of her life this summer. Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis seven years ago, she was in her early 30s and had to make the decision of whether to keep her illness a secret from the rest of the world, or put herself out there and risk being known as “the girl with MS.” Kornstein made the life altering decision to become a “face” for this crippling disease, using her position in the community to bravely face MS, and raise money and awareness by helping instead of hiding.

BEAUTY BAR • LUXURY COLOR PERSONALIZED STYLE

She realized that she was in an interesting and unique position as a retailer who got to meet new people every single day. Deciding it would be a waste not to take the opportunity to educate people and do something positive with a very serious life changing diagnosis, Kornstein became involved with the National MS Society. She’s had to learn how to take her foot off of the gas pedal and slow down from time to time. “If I go too hard, which is my nature, I end up getting sick and the goal is to stay healthy,” Kornstein said. Slowing down is hard for her, and it’s usually not until she starts feeling bad that she actually slows herself. “It’s made me appreciate everything – time with my kids, my fiancé, and so much more,” she said. If you'd like to support Lisa in her fight against Multiple Sclerosis, you can join her Scout & Molly's Bike MS150 Team or make a donation by visiting her page: bikenct.nationalmssociety.org/goto/lisascoutandmollys

RUNNING FOR RONAN

Struggling with a lifetime of weight issues is an epidemic for millions of Americans. Obesity can lead to heart disease, diabetes and a list of not only physical problems that can affect your life negatively, but mentally as well. Alli Leggett, owner of The Pink Alli (thepinkalli.com), a hugely popular local boutique, grew up as an only child and graduated from Peace College with a Liberal Studies degree in 2001. She feels lucky to have followed her passion and taught dance until opening the boutique with her mother in 2007.

Leggett can relate to weight struggles and not only took matters into her own hands and has a handful of medals to show for it, she runs for a great reason. She started working out simply to lose weight and get healthy. As a dancer, Leggett always struggled with her weight – and wouldn’t always go about losing it the right way. Wanting muscle rather than bones, she decided to get fit rather than skinny. She started running and working out for a program called “I Run 4.” Leggett runs for a child named Ronan who has Trisomy 21. She runs with his name somewhere on her body and fills him in daily on the workouts she is doing for him. His name appears on her so that people will ask who he is and why she is competing for him – spreading awareness about his

In the beginning, she used to be intimidated by the gym and the people who were in there. But now Leggett is the only girl in her CrossFit class with the goal of beating the boys! She was never a morning person, but now bounces out of bed ready to workout. The training has taught her discipline, consistency, priorities, confidence and moderation. Leggett would like to see everyone get active. “We live in NC where we have the best weather to be outdoors all the time,” she said. “Even if it’s raining a little, it will make you feel tough to run in it!” Leggett recommends signing up for races that allow you to give back. Finding organizations that will buddy you with someone makes you more accountable as well as helping that someone live through you. “There is nothing like having that kind of cheerleader!” Leggett said.

SUMMER CAN WREAK HAVOC ON YOUR HAIR, SO WE ASKED TRIANGLE SALON OWNERS FOR THEIR TIPS TOP SUMMER HAIR PROBLEMS

HELP!!!  MY HAIR IS DRIED OUT! SALON SAVER: Karen, owner at The Hair and Face Lounge, Cary With Summer brings an overexposure to the sun, swimming, and products with alcohol, all of which can dehydrate hair. Also daily “heat” styling can take its toll on hair, the dryer or flat iron will strip the hair of moisture. PROBLEM SOLVED:: Try skipping heat a few times a week and go for a different look...like a textured summer beach wave style. I would recommend Aveda’s new Be Curly Line, it’s the perfect product for the “no heat days”

For the styling days, I would totally recommend dry remedy™ daily moisturizing oil from Aveda, it’s lightweight and designed to drench dry, brittle hair with vita moisture with out leaving behind a greasy residue. Plus, it smells fantastic, with a fresh ne herbal, lightly floral aroma with organic lavender, bergamot and ginger lily.


HELP!!!!  MY HAIR IS LIFELESS, FLAT AND STRINGY!

SALON SAVER: Ashley, owner at PLUM hair atelier Whether it be due to genetics, damage, or medical reasons, having fine lifeless hair can be frustrating. This challenge can be exacerbated with disregard of proper care of your hair, both internally and on the hair itself. PROBLEM SOLVED: Proper maintenance is key! Getti regular haircuts can help the ends maintain strength and elasticity whic will allow for it to hold a style. Vitamins are always helpful as well (ie biotin) Your hair grows out of you body, so your body needs to be healthy as well. Hair masques are great to use to restore strength as well. Arrojo Hair Repair masque is a favorite of ours. Being a protein based product, it will restore life and strength to dull, brittle hair. Volume Foam is another favorite of ours for finer hair textures. It’s a light weight foundatio product that gives fullness and support to limp, lifeless hair

HELP!!!  MY HAIR GETS REALLY GREASY IN THE SUMMER, HOW DO I STOP IT? SALON SAVER: Lisa, owner at Joule salon, Cary With summer, comes sweat, and sweat travels from your face to your hair, leaving you with greasy hair. Fight the urge to wash your hair every day because believe it or not, washing your hair everyday causes your hair to produce oils faster.

Try washing it every other day. At first, your hair will feel very greasy, but overtime your hair wil adjust, and stop producing oils as quickly.

Top Fashion Designers

PROBLEM SOLVED: A Dry shampoo is an excellent alternative for absorbing the greasies. I really like L’oréal Professionnel’s Tecni ART Fresh Dust Hair Powder/Dry Shampoo it will absorb oil and makes your hair look nearly fresh again. It also has a fresh scent and does not leave any white residue. Another great tip to remember is to apply conditioner only t the bottom half of your hair, and not on the scalp

HELP!!! ALL THIS CHLORINE EXPOSURE IS DOING A NUMBER ON MY HAIR! SALON SAVER: Roi, owner at   ROI PARKER SALON Chlorine is used as a disinfectant to kill harmful bacteria in the water so it can do a number on your hair, if you are not careful. Not only can it dry out your hair but if can cause hair color to fade quicker. PROBLEM SOLVED: Adding intense hydration to the hair, like conditioners, is a great way to protect your hair. I would recommend my own Vortex Curl Conditioner. It’s an ultra creamy conditioner that contains 11 botanical extracts to provide maximum hydration. An added bonus is that it boosts curls, reduces frizz and is safe for colored and chemically-treated hair. Another great tip...before you jump into the chlorinated pool - wet your hair...dry hair is like a sponge and it will absorb the chemicals. Wettin it first with just regular faucet water will tremendously help cut down on the amount of chlorine your hair absorbs.

This is a great question! The neck is a tricky area to correct and there really are not many effective options outside of cosmetic surgery. Once the skin is loose the best way to treat it is to excise the excess skin; this should be done by a reputable board certified plastic surgeon. I am not a physician so I can not give medical advice, the above comment is merely my personal opinion. A surgeon would need to examine you to see what surgical option would be best for you as often times a less invasive procedure such as liposuction may suffice. There are a few non-invasive options as well such as Ultherapy, which is FDA approved to tighten areas such as the neck. This non-surgical cosmetic procedure uses ultrasound to stimulate the growth of new collagen deep within the skin. The treatment is known to be a little painful and results are not instant, with visible improvement being noted at the three to six month post treatment mark. There is no downtime and most patients of Ultherapy give it high marks as a non-surgical option. One other option in laser technology is SkinTyte by Sciton, which utilizes infrared energy to deeply heat soft tissue. Targeted heating causes soft tissue coagulation and collagen contraction. This process initiates the body’s natural healing process, resulting in a firmer, more youthful skin appearance. The full effect of skin firming treatments can be seen over several subsequent months. Lastly, there is a new FDA injectable product on the market, it is called Kybella and is used to dissolve moderate-to-sever submental fat below the chin. Again you will need to have an exam with a medical provider offering this new treatment to determine whether or not you are a candidate. If you have little to no excess fat but rather strictly loose skin this might not be the best course of treatment for you. As always, do your homework before selecting a provider/facility to treat this or any other concerns you have with your face/body!

THE WEDDING GUEST IT’S WEDDING SEASON — BRUSH UP ON YOUR GUEST ETIQUETTE

Everyone loves a good wedding. There's something wonderful about being there, sharing in the happy couple's special day, that puts everyone involved in an elated mood. Being a guest also lets you enjoy the very best of the festivities, and even better, to do it with no planning, no worries and very few responsibilities. But there’s more to attending a wedding than getting dressed up, shedding a few tears and partying all night long: guests have an obligation to follow an unspoken code of behavior, both before and during the big day. If you’re not, however, too sure about what all these timeless traditions entail–such as gift giving and wedding day protocol–perhaps this short primer will set you on your way to being the perfect guest. LATE TO THE SERVICE We all know how it is–you have everything planned out perfectly in order to attend your oldest friend’s wedding. Then the phone rings, the dog is sick and the taxi driver can’t find the church without some divine intervention of his own! If by the time you finally arrive and you unhappily find the ceremony has already begun, then take your cue from the wedding or church coordinator who will allow you to enter as soon as Written by April Jones

there’s an opportunity. But if there’s no help in sight, do not interrupt. Instead, wait until after the wedding party has entered, then quietly slip in a side door and choose a seat in the back. If you cannot find an unlocked entrance anywhere, please don’t be tempted to knock in hope that someone will hear you and let you enter. Stay out! RSVP Your most important obligation as a guest is to respond to the invitation immediately, especially if you’re unable to attend. This allows your host and hostess enough time to give their caterer an accurate count. Usually there’s a card to return with your reply but, if not, you may write a formal reply or note indicating your intention. If you happen to lose either the invitation or RSVP, then call your hosts right away and let them know whether you’re able to intend; never just ignore it and show up on what you think is the right date. You could very well end up as an uncomfortable odd number that has not been added to the caterer’s list or even an embarrassing crasher at the wrong wedding if you get it really wrong!

UNFORGETTABLE PHOTOS As much as you would love to capture that perfect Kodak moment with a shot of the couple during the ceremony, remember they may find your camera's flash to be a distraction or nuisance. Even if the couple has a professional photographer present, proper etiquette requires you to refrain from taking pictures during the ceremony. Don’t worry about capturing any of those formal shots; these were already arranged by the couple. But do snap away during the reception at all those people dancing and enjoying themselves. Most receptions, although sometimes chaotic, are filled with lots of fun and laughter--something that poised, formal shots never really capture. MINGLING Usually the first thing you'll see at the reception is the receiving line. This is your chance to talk oneon-one with the couple, meet the bride or groom if you haven't yet, thank the parents for inviting you, etc. After the receiving line, it's time for the cocktail hour, when people mill around with drinks and hors d'oeuvres. This is the prime mingling time, so prepare to introduce yourself to anyone you don't

know and start by explaining your connection to the couple. However, try not to talk only to people with whom you're already acquainted. If there's a specific seating arrangement when it comes to dinner, the bride and groom have probably put you with people they thought you'd enjoy. Even though you may not know them, by the end of the meal you’re sure to be old friends. Don’t forget to keep an eye on how often your wine glass is refilled or these new associations could be short-lived ones! WHAT TO WEAR Try not to upstage the couple (which means don’t wear white and don’t be tempted to go more formal than you think the couple will be). And dress appropriately for the time of day and the setting. A Sunday afternoon wedding generally means a coat and tie for gentlemen and flowing dresses for ladies. An evening wedding, however, calls for floor length formal dresses and dinner suits. Unless the invitation specifically calls for it, never ever wear blue jeans, even if the invite says casual. Casual in this case means your best casual, not your weekend at home casual!

BUYING A GREAT GIFT/THE REGISTRY Fortunately for gift givers, two magic words are your saving grace: gift registry. A wedding gift registry is literally a wish list of what the couple would like to receive and from where they would like it to come. They create their registries to not only save their guests time and effort, but also, to ensure they get exactly what they want. While it’s certainly nice to help the couple complete selections they have chosen, a unique gift can often be just as welcomed and this way you do have the liberty of selecting something more personal. SOME FINAL NOTES Surrounded by family, friends and well-wishers, the bride and groom may not be able to spend more than a few moments with each guest. So smile, have fun, and be content to share your time with the other guests. This is how you show your appreciation. Having spent so much time on planning their perfect day, the bride and groom want to see that their guests are not only generally wellbehaved but are also having a really great time. This is, indeed, the icing on the cake! TS

FOR REAL BEACH BUMS…

it’s all about that bass For beach bums, finding just the right bathing suit has always been a top priority…but this summer it’s all about the base! With so many hot new swimwear styles to choose from, we spoke with Melanie Pierce, of the Bikini Bus, to help us get to the bottom of it!

Pierce believes that instead of trying to hide our bodies, we need to embrace what we have and find what flatters. When it comes to coverage, “Sometimes less is more,” explains Pierce, “ and too much fabric is just like a billboard across our butt which can actually highlight what we’re trying to hide.” She encourages her customers to be bold and try on suits they might normally wade past. There are several silhouettes that almost every body can wear - as long as they get the proper fit.

THE AMERICAN CUT

offers the fullest seat coverage, The new intermediate style trims about 1/2” of fabric off the rear, which actually help slenderize and won’t ride up if the fit is just right


The Bikini Bus sells its bathing suits, priced from $29 to $249, as both separates and sets, to insure just the right sizing. Pierce tells her clients to try on several suits and not to get hung up on a number; simply look for a suit that hits your hips just right.

YOUR SWIMWEAR NEEDS TO HUG, RATHER THAT SQUEEZE, FOR A TRULY TUG-FREE TIME AT THE BEACH.

IT’S A KIMONA KIND OF SUMMER

Your swimwear needs to hug, rather that squeeze, for a truly tug-free time at the beach. The standard American cut offers the fullest seat coverage, but Pierce suggests that sunbathers step up their game with the newer Intermediate cut. This style trims about 1/2” of fabric off the rear, which she claims, can actually help slenderize and won’t ride up if the fit is just right. Other styles to look for include boy shorts, which Pierce says, “are great for gals with slimmer hips and thighs.” Same goes for those trendy high-waisted suits. However, for her curvier customers, she suggest bottoms that sit just below the belly button. For those of us who are little braver, or who are just blessed with better butts, Pierce suggests you try on the Brazilian cut, which she explains is actually different from a thong, or the newer Cheeky/Latin style which has a wider band across the hip with a more open bottom, and are also super sexy. Not sure you can pull it off, Pierce suggests you take it on a test run while on vacation or in your back yard!

ment targets aging and sun-damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into your skin to expedite your body’s remodeling of collagen. And since the laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, it leaves the surrounding tissue intact, which promotes very rapid healing.

FRAXEL DUAL IS AN DEAL TREATMENT FOR: • Wrinkles around the eyes (periorbital wrinkles) • Acne Scars • Surgical Scars • Age spots and sun spots (pigmented lesions), • Melasma (irregular patches of brown skin on the forehead, cheeks, upper lip and nose), Actinic Keratoses (precancerous lesions), and skin resurfacing. •

WHAT IT IS...If you’re battling the effects aging can have on your skin, or trying to address it before the battle even starts, Clear + Brilliant is for you. A single 10 to 20-minute Clear + Brilliant treatment can leave your skin feeling smoother, younger and give you that “radiant glow that comes from healthy, youthful skin. Clear + Brilliant is simple yet effective. An easy treatment to add to your routine, receiving regular treatments delivers lasting results that can keep you looking younger for years to come.

WHAT IT IS...Thermage uses radiofrequency technology to heat up and tighten the fibro-connective tissue in the fat layer under your skin. Thermage treatments are customized to your needs, and typically require minimal recovery time. It’s a great solution if you want your skin to look sleeker, smoother and younger, but can’t afford a lot of time away from work or your social life. One thermage treatment will tighten, tone and lift the brow, face and neck.

WHAT IT DOES... • clear + brilliant is a fractionated resurfacing treatment just like fraxel, but gentler, less intense and without downtime. it is more effective than microdermabrasion or superficial chemical peels for fighting the effects of sun and aging.

• Helps improve tone and texture and gives skin a radiant, youthful glow • Creates a more even skin canvas, with reduction in the appearance of pores

THE NITTY GRITTY ABOUT

Hair s n o i s n e t Ex

Ravishing hair is within reach for everyone - with the help of a few extensions! Modern Enhancement Salon Day Spa has been working their magic on some of the most magnificent manes in the Triangle. We spoke with them about how surprisingly easy it is to weave your way to wonderful hair with extensions. DOES IT TAKE LONGER FOR YOUR HAIR TO DRY? Yes, essentially adding more hair does increase drying time, however with the use of the right products and proper care for your extensions, the dry time can be cut nearly in ½. Just think about how much “enhanced” joy it will bring to your life!

IS IT DIFFICULT BRUSHING YOUR HAIR? Not at all, each extension client is given a customized product regimen and a take home “how to” care sheet specifically for their hair care needs by our hair extension specialist. Also, using extension safe brushes is very important, and are available at the salon.

56 | triangle style


No, it is not hard to match a naturally curly hair pattern. We have 21 different methods of extensions. There is bound to be a texture/pattern that fits your natural hair! Also, some of the extension companies we work with offer in house perming to match best with the exact curl pattern of your hair.

CAN YOU SEE THE EXTENSIONS WHEN THE HAIR IS PUT INTO A PONYTAIL? Tonya, our Hair Extension Specialist, is known for her expertise in placement of extensions for over 20 years. Placement is key as is specific directions on home care to achieve the (ponytail) look the client desires. We even offer styling sessions to help educate you on styling with extensions.

Yes, naturally more hair will feel heavier, but because of placement and even distribution of the extensions, it is not often a concern.

ARE BLOWOUTS DIFFERENT WITH EXTENSIONS? Of course!!! A blow out is only “enhanced” by extensions and will maximize your look! Blowouts are offered at our full service Salon Day Spa.

CAN I SWIM WITH HAIR EXTENSIONS? Yes, you can swim with extensions! Just make sure you do not leave the hair wet all day without shampooing and conditioning with your extension approved products!

HOW LONG DO HAIR EXTENSIONS TAKE TO APPLY? Normally it would take about 4-6 hours to apply the hair extensions but at Modern Enhancement it only takes 1-2 hours depending on the amount being applied. summer | 57


THINKING ABOUT GETTING A PIECE REUPHOLSTERED? GEORGE CRONSON OF MIDAS FABRIC AND BLINDS HAS YOU COVERED

ALL ABOUT

REUPHOLSTERY When it comes to reupholstering furniture, should you hire a professional or do it yourself? The art of reupholstering takes professionals many years to perfect and hone – so DIY is not traditionally recommended. It is the job of a skilled craftsman to cut the fabric to make sure the pattern on the inside back of a piece matches the seat cushion and outside back, and that the arms complement each other inside and out. Everything has to be centered and matched. Upholsterers must also be skilled at sewing as they remove the old fabric and use it as a pattern for the new. Dacron batting is then used on the cushions and back to give the “new” chair a crowned or full look.

When choosing a service provider, where should people go—a furniture store or professional upholstery service? You could go to an upholsterer; they may have fabric samples you can select and order from, but for the most part they specialize in upholstery labor only. If you opt for a fabric or furniture store to have your upholstery work done, they’ll have a much wider variety of fabrics as well as decorators to help you make the best selection for both quality and style. Ordering fabric and labor through one company makes for easier one-stop shopping, especially if you have any issues.

58 | triangle style

What are the best types of fabrics to use for these projects? A wide variety of upholstery fabric is available to choose from. Mostly, you’ll want a somewhat heavy fabric with a dense thread count. Look closely at a square inch of fabric to see the number of threads – the more the better because a higher count means the fabric is more durable (slightly less heavy fabric with more threads is better than a heavy fabric with fewer threads). You can also test a fabric by pulling on it diagonally. The fabric shouldn’t move or give too much in the direction of the pull because you want the threads to be stable once upholstered. Material with a lower thread count will not stand up well long-term because the individual threads are more exposed and will rub and wear quicker. You also wouldn’t want to use light fabrics such as silk or a faux silk as they will not last. In order to gauge durability, many fabrics have been tested to see how many “double rubs” they will take. Fabric manufacturers use a machine that rubs the fabric forward and back, making a double rub. A fabric with 20,000 double rubs means that no visible signs of wear occurred during the test. Normally, heavy-duty upholstery fabrics start at about 20,000 double rubs, but some fabrics can exceed 100,000 double rubs.


What costs should people expect? Depending upon where you have it done, there can be a wide fee range in the cost of reupholstering furniture. Normally, a fully reupholstered chair can run about $350, plus about eight yards of fabric. A standard sofa would cost just under $600, plus about 18 yards of fabric.

Any other advice you'd like to give readers, particularly about buying new furniture vs. reupholstering current pieces? The first consideration is: do you like

A quality piece of furniture can be reupholstered many times and give you decades of good use. If you’re looking for a new, fully upholstered chair or sofa, you can easily see this quality difference by lifting up the side of your piece and comparing it to a newer piece at the discount furniture stores. Most of the time, your piece will be much, much heavier – which in furniture terms equals quality – and reupholstering is recommended.

the lines and style of your current piece? Does it fit your space nicely? When reupholstering, your furniture comes out almost like new as 95% of the piece is covered with fabric. The next consideration is about quality. Over the last 10-15 years, the quality of new furniture has greatly diminished. Now it is not uncommon to find a lot of cardboard and plastic corner blocks in new furniture; whereas in older times, you’d find heavy hardwood frames and strong, long lasting spring systems.

STYLE SPOTLIGHT

SoHo CONSIGNMENTS Trish Yovanovich

WHAT WOULD A NEW CUSTOMER TO SOHO CONSIGNMENTS BE SURPRISED BY WHEN VISITING FOR THE FIRST TIME? Most customers are quite taken back when they first walk into SoHo Consignments. They are surprised at how well we vignette everything even though the items in a particular vignette aren't necessarily from the same consignor. Customers also are quite pleased at the quality of the pieces we take in. I have really great help here at SoHo and I think my employees love this store, customers, clients and selling furniture as much as I do and I've been told it shows.

DO A LOT OF YOUR PIECES COME FROM RALEIGH AND CARY? We do get a lot of clients consigning from Raleigh and Cary but you might be surprised to know that we have clients bringing us things from Rockingham, Vass, Southern Pines, Durham, Chapel Hill and quite frankly from all over the state and we have even had things come from Virginia. We love things from other parts of the state because they are usually one of a kind and that's what we are well known for, having those really unique pieces of furniture and accessories that you rarely or don't see anywhere else.

WHAT IS THE AVERAGE LENGTH OF TIME A PIECE STAYS ON THE FLOOR? Our inventory here at SoHo changes constantly. I would say an

60 | triangle style

average length would be 30 days or less. I'm always gettin customers that ask about an item they saw the week before and I usually have to tell them it has sold. "Should have bought it when I saw it" is our mantra. Things can sell out from under you while you're in the store if you don't pick it up when you see it or pull the tag and bring it to the checkout desk so you can continue o shop.

FOR ITEMS THAT ARE EXTREMELY HEAVY, CAN SOMEONE ARRANGE FOR A PICK UP? We've done all the hard work of vettin our movers and we utili e two different companies that can pick up and deliver items for our customers purchasing things as well as our consignors who need to bring bulky items in for consignment. They are both very conscientious and affordable movers. These are guys we would let move our mothers!

WHAT WAS THE MOST UNUSUAL ITEM THAT HAS EVER COME THROUGH SOHO’S DOORS? The unusual items are always my favorite pieces and what makes SoHo so special. Some of the most unique items have been a 5 layer faux wedding cake, 2 life size painted wood cigar store Indians, a life size pool cue butler and an antique ox cart wheel that had been polished and mounted on a stone plinth and used as a sculptural piece.


FOR SOMEONE CONSIGNING FOR THE FIRST TIME, WHAT WOULD BE THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS FOR THEM TO KNOW? Read and understand the contract that any reputable consignment shop will want you to sign. Most shops are experts in knowing what any particular item will sell for and some will do research on unusual items in which they are unfamiliar with but a consignor needs to be realistic when it comes to pricing their items. I have had to turn things away because the consignor wanted more money for their item than I knew it would sell for. Here at SoHo we price things from 35% to 70% of retail prices depending on what the fair market value is. Also, the better your items look, the better they will sell and for more money than if it has easily fixed flaws. Think of how nice and clean you would want items to be if you were shopping for them and that is how clean your items should be when they come in for consignment.

practi ally give things away. At SoHo, we hand pick every item that comes in, it is cleaned up before and is kept clean while it's on the showroom floor unlike any thrift store I've ever been in. We do carry some higher priced items but if you shop higher end retail furniture stores and compare our prices to theirs, you will find some real bargains at SoHo and most other consignment shops. And typically, our items are of better quality than most consignment stores because we are particular about what items we take in.

CAN SHOPPERS VIEW CURRENT PIECES ONLINE VIA SOHO’S WEBSITE OR ON FACEBOOK? We try to update our Facebook page and our website at least once a week with new items that have come in and marking which items have recently sold. Approximately 80% of our traffic comes from the internet so we are diligent in keeping our presence current on the web.

WHAT IS THE BIGGEST MISCONCEPTION ABOUT FURNITURE CONSIGNMENT? I think

5655 Western Boulevard, Raleigh the biggest misconception about furniture (919) 851-6969 www.sohoconsignments.com consignment is that it's like a thrift store where they

ASK THE EXPERTS

For decades, Hertzburg Furs has been the Carolina’s go-to source for “certified cold storage. We spoke with owner and expert furrier, Gregory Albert, about their on-premise storage and other essentials o keep your furs looking fabulous for years to come.

ALL ABOUT FUR What would be one thing someone would be surprised to learn about fur storage? Storage is only $56 for the enti e calendar year, not per month. Since all garments are stored on the premises, you are given in and out privileges... Meaning if you have an event or occasion and would like your fur just for that night, you can come by and pick it up, then return it the next day with no additional storage fees. No notice is necessary for pick up, so you can pop in at any time. Many places that offer storage actually ship them to another location and require up to 3 weeks notic before you can access your garment. What exactly does a Professional Fur Storage entail? Garments should be stored in a UL Certified cold storage vault. This means it has a monitored central alarm system that is temperature and humidity controlled, between 45 and 52 degrees, with purified air circulating. This serves as protection from heat, humidity, theft, and insects, primarily moths. There is also minimum light exposure to prevent fading. This is the proper way to professionally store your furs in the ideal environment.

62 | triangle style

Why is “Cold" storage essential for your fur? Cold storage and proper humidity prevent the natural oils in leather from drying out. This helps maximize the life of your fur. Why is not storing my fur at home recommended, if I have air conditioning? Our vaults are designed to protect your furs from theft, heat, and other factors. Regular air condition ing lowers the humidity in your home and this can dry out your garment. Heat, humidity, insects, and moths are what ruins furs. While my fur is in storage, is there enough time to have repairs and alterations done before I pick it up in the fall? Yes, this is more than enough time or our expert furriers and finishers to complete your repairs and alterations in our on-si e workshop. All furs are inspected by our furriers and finishers and they will make recommendations on epairs (if needed) and suggestions on updating an older fur into a fashionable and stylish new garment. Some common recommendation are updating shoulders and sleeves, shearing, making reversible, shortening into a jacket or vest, or a complete restyle.

aging gracefully Written By Lou Scott

Last week I received a letter from a respected foundation asking for help in sending a needy child to summer camp. I put the letter aside. There are so many more pressing needs in the world today: floods; weary war-torn refugees and most recently the sweet-natured, stranded villagers from the horrendous earthquakes in Nepal. When it comes to giving, one has to prioritize. Nepal’s need was immediate and I responded to the plea from the IRC in a generous way. I did what I could; I did my part. Why then did ignoring the request to help send a needy child to camp keep bothering me? It wasn’t as if missing out on camp was going to devastate these children. There were other activities they could do to enjoy their summer. Nonetheless there was a nagging little voice in my soul that reminded of the precious memories from my summers at a Y.M.C.A. camp on the shore of Lake Couchiching. These memories continue to influence the direction of my life even today. The stated mission of the camp was to help create in each child a healthy body, mind and spirit. No frills, just rough-hewn primitive cabins, and the great outdoors. Just the opportunity to make new friends and in doing so to create a sense of teamwork with children from all walks of life. Our day began at an ungodly hour, when Skid, our camp director, walked past our cabins, ringing his bell, saying “Wakey, wakey, wakey. Dippy, dippy, dippy.” It was the wake up call to leave our warm beds and jump in the cold water of the lake first thing every morning. After shivering and drying off, we dressed and headed to the flagpole, where we held hands and recited the Salutation to the Dawn: Look to this day! For it is life, the very life of life. In its brief course lie all the verities and realities of our existence...Today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope...” 64 | triangle style

A resounding “Let’s eat,” followed and off we raced to the dining hall. When breakfast was over, we went back to our cabins for morning cleanup: made our beds to precision, swept our floor, and tidied up both inside and outside the cabin. At the end of the season cabin 6 won the cleanest cabin award: a Hershey chocolate bar. But it was the teamwork and the “Good job. Well done” handshake that was the real award. Each day before lunch we chose swimming, sailing or canoeing lessons. Perhaps arts and crafts or drama. Or outdoor activities such as tennis, archery or campfire building. Even wood carving, making outdoor shelters, or learning how to portage a canoe properly. After lunch and a quiet time, we focused on a particular project, perhaps rehearsing a play for talent night, working on a photography project or taking a watercolor class with the art instructor. Those who wanted to qualify for a two to five day canoe trip, and I did, had to successfully swim to Portage Island, which was a challenge even in the calmest of waters. Of course water safety experts were in a rowboat shadowing us. Once qualified, we headed north. Portaging our canoes, going through the locks, paddling up Severn River, we headed out into unpredictable Sparrow Lake and beyond. A makeshift shelter or just out in the rain under our tarps, we laughed and told ghost stories. The next morning we ate breakfast around a camp fire, loaded up our canoes and headed out again, a chilly morning with a bright blue sky and a warming sun. At the end of our trip, we paddled across Lake Couchiching, watching in silence the setting of the evening sun. And remembering all that summer camp meant to me and to a child I might help, I wrote out a check to put in the mail the following month.

urated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are heart healthy fats because they do not stick to arteries. Olive oil has proven anti-inflammatory properties, which is a key contributor to many diseases such as diabetes, stroke, colitis, asthma, arthritis, and cancer

WHICH ONE IS THE BEST FOR YOU? WHAT ARE THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCES BETWEEN TYPES OF OLIVE OIL? Extra-virgin olive oils are the best oils. All extra virgin oils are the product of the first cold press. Quality and taste are a direct result of the type of olive and the condition of the fruit upon crushing.

COMPARING BRANDS, HOW DOES THE AVERAGE GROCERY STORE BOTTLE STACK UP? Many oils are commercially produced

from large distributors. These distributors focus on volume in order to achieve maximum production fulfillment. Consequently, the average bottle can potentially be a blend from high production olives but they don’t necessarily have the best flavor profile. I obtain my oils from several distributors that all provide authenticity Prized olive oils are as revered as fine wines. Gold standards are always held to the highest levels of taste, fruitiness, aroma, and complexity.

YOU RECENTLY HOSTED A SEMINAR FEATURING THE INFLAMMATION CURE COOKBOOK. HOW IS THE BOOK MOST HELPFUL?

This wellness cookbook, unlike most cookbooks on the market, combines the fields of nutritio and medicine. It’s packed with information on a wholesome diet, nutritional discussions, relationships between diet and disease, and the importance of eating phytochemicals in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains that contain antioxidant properties and reduce inflammation.

IT’S WRITTEN BY A REGISTERED DIETITIAN NUTRITIONIST AND A PHYSICIAN, HOW DOES THIS SET IT APART FROM OTHER COOKBOOKS?

Drs. Myers and Meggs combine their expertis to produce delectable recipes that prove healthy eating can also be tasty cuisine. By adding key foods to the daily diet, such as salmon, other fatty fish, nuts, green tea, and olive oil, it is possible to counteract the negative effects of the Western Diet.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE MEAL TO COOK WITH OLIVE OIL?

What I appreciate the most about olive oil are the nuances when it is used simply for dipping with or drizzled on a delicious appetizer platte of charcuterie with tomatoes, green peppers, olives, and fresh mozzarella. You are closest to the best qualities of olive oil when you use it in its purest form.

LASER HAIR REMOVAL

For many women and men, unwanted hair is a nuisance....or even a source of embarrassment. Until recently, laser hair removal has been uncomfortable, time-consuming, expensive and provided results that were inconsistent at best. Advances in laser technology have resulted in far better results, and treatments that are safer, faster and more comfortable than ever before. Laser hair removal works on just about any area of the body where smooth skin is desired... underarms, face, neck, back, legs, shoulders, bikini line, you name it. Since 1995, Blue Water Spa has been working with laser hair removal and providing training to other medical professionals, they continue to learn and train others about the safest, most effective, fastest, and most comfortable laser hair removal available. The experts at Blue Water Spa answered some of their top questions....

Can all hair and skin colors be treated effectively with laser? There is no one laser that is ideal for all skin colors. At Michael law, MD P.A. and Blue Water Spa, we have a laser for light skin and a second laser for dark skin. The alexandrite laser we use has been evaluated as the most effective laser for removing hair. However, this laser is ideal for light skinned individuals. The long pulsed nd:yag laser we use is ideal for dark skinned individuals. The longer pulse means that the laser energy will be absorbed by the root of the hair and not the surface of the skin. This means laser hair removal will be safer and more effective for dark skinned individuals. While laser hair removal can be performed on virtually any skin color, the color of the hair is the most important factor. The laser is attracted to the melanin (the dark pigment) in the hair follicle. Thus, darker hair is treated most effectively. If your hair has a blonde, red, or dark gray root, you may not be a good candidate for laser hair removal.

You want laser hair removal WHERE? Unless you have hair on the palms of your hands or the soles of your feet, you are not unique. Some women feel embarrassed about hair on their chest, neck, face, feet, forehead, hands, abdomen, hands, buttocks or other areas. Hair in these areas on a woman is not unique.

68 | triangle style

We know men shave their face, but men also shave their noses, ears, eyebrows, hands, shoulders, arms and many other areas of the face or body. Laser hair removal for men of the back, neck, chest and shoulders are some of our most requested procedures. Male athletes must remove hair of the body some way in order to perform. We have all heard about Brazilian bikini waxing. Well, what about Brazilian bikini lasering? We do that too. What exactly is a Brazilian bikini laser? Well, that part is up to you. During the consultation process, you let the technician know which areas you want treated and any areas you want untreated. A medical office with many years of experience in laser hair removal will not be surprised to hear that man wants his ears and nose treated with a hair removal laser. Likewise, an experienced laser hair removal office will have ample experience performing laser hair removal on any area of the face or body of a woman.


Brazilian Bikini or Mankini Laser – What is a full Brazilian? A full Brazilian bikini procedure is perfect for those who have a preference for nothing more than a neat strip of hair. Yes, a full Brazilian is that extensive, with some people opting for no pubic hair whatsoever. These procedures are our fastest growing because many men and women love the idea of not having to worry about bikini bumps and ingrown hairs. Generally laser hair removal of the bikini area takes less than 30 minutes, depending on what exactly will be done. Variations of the Brazilian laser hair removal treatment laser hair removal treatment are:

ADORE yourself. ADORE specializes in high-end, designer upscale, resale/consignment clothing along with new overstocks.

Chanel • outside of the swimsuit • outside the suit plus the peri-anal area • Everything but a small strip of hair • Finally, both men and women sometimes request complete removal of hair

Do you sell packages, and is laser hair Removal affordable? We don't sell packages – we never insist on payment of multiple treatments up front. Every patient differs in the way that their hair responds to the treatment. Any given area typically requires an average of five to seven treatments but this can vary from person to person. This is why we price per treatment. We are confident in the way our laser performs and there is no reason to require clients to pay up front before seeing the results of a treatment.

Do you offer complimentary consultations? Absolutely. We believe that a consultation is important for any client considering laser hair removal. We will perform a test spot so the client can see how the laser feels and we can answer any questions so the client can better understand what the laser can do. We can also determine if you are a good candidate for laser before you commit to any treatment. However, some people would like the idea of receiving treatment the day as a consultation. If you are a good candidate for laser hair removal, a treatment can be performed the same day.

THE EXPERTS SPEAK:

full body scans Skin cancer is on the rise. The good news is the earlier you detect skin cancer the easier it is to treat successfully. Full body skin exams are an important tool in the early diagnosis of diseases such as skin cancer. Much of your skin is not easily viewable to yourself, and that combined with the subtle nature of some diseases appearance makes it easy for you to let a dangerous disease go unnoticed for far too long. Yearly full body skin exams drastically reduce the chance of a serious disease going unnoticed and gives us the best chance at fighting it.

How long do full body scans last?

A full body scan will last on average about forty-five minutes.

What happens if the doctor sees something out of the ordinary? Will they automatically do a biopsy?

No, we will schedule a follow up appointment for the appropriate treatment plan.

How often should someone get a full body scan?

We recommend you get a full body skin exam yearly. Most insurance companies pay for one visit per year.

What does a full body exam entail?

A full body exam is a simple non invasive procedure where your medical provider does a full evaluation and documentation of every mole and lesion. This is preformed in private.

The Imitation Game Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley star in this suspenseful and energetic film about the British mathematician and cryptographer Alan Turing. Recruited during World War II by Britain’s top secret Bletchley Park, Turing created the first universal computing machine, thus making it possible to break Nazi Germany’s Enigma code, thereby successfully intercepting Germany’s operational maneuvers. As a consequence the war with Germany was cut short by as much as two years.. Arrested after the war for being a homosexual, when homosexuality was still a punishable offense, Turing, the father of modern computer science and artificial intelligence, died in disgrace, his achievement unacknowledged.

Poirot, an eccentric, diminutive and impeccably dressed Belgium detective, with a unusual way of walking, was fond of saying that Hercule Poirot. He is always right. And he usually is. But where would he be without the help of Miss Lemon, who guards his files with precision? Or Captain Hastings, who at the appropriate moment raises his eyebrows and says “I’ll be” and “You don’t say” to whatever point Poirot is making.
