Assess

SCOUT & MOLLY’S

APPAREL ACCESSORIES AND MORE

Take note of your shape. Are you a littl curvy, or a lot curvy? Do you have long legs? Are you petite? Do you have a little extra around the middle? Without any judgment, taking note of your shape will help you to understand exactly what your needs are, helping you to know where to start. Note: Many brands have a wide array of styles designed for different needs. With everything from built­in tummy control panels, bu -lifting inserts, different rises and innovative fabrics that can make you look (and feel) pounds thinner, it’s prett certain there is a solution for your needs.

Do Your Homework No, it may not be the fun part, but taking time to do a little research will help you eliminate those brands and styles that are not right, and zero in on the pair that will fit you like a glove. Ask friends who have a similar shape as you for recommendations. Get online. Take a social media poll. Become familiar with brands and styles and the differences in how they fit. Whatever it takes to find what you need! Note: Go online before you shop. There are resources designed to help you find brands, cuts and styles that are right for you. But don’t stop there. Full-service boutiques can be your best asset, with personal shoppers and stylists dedicated to helping you get the right cut and the right size.

CAMERON VILLAGE 404 Daniels St, Raleigh (919) 828-5055

Fit Gettin the right fit is key. These days jeans are not an inexpensive purchase, and you want to be sure to get your money’s worth. You will not wear an uncomfortable pair of jeans for long, so don’t even think about toleratin something that is so-so. Go for amazing! No gapping at the waist, riding up in the rise or bagginess in the thighs. If your skinny jean is too tig t in the calf, skip it. Keep trying on until you get it right. If you come close to perfect but need a littl help, a great tailor can work wonders. And by all means, don’t buy a pair that gives you a muffin top! Find a rise that is slimming and keeps everything in place. Note: When trying on your jeans, sit, stand, squat and move around to be sure they move with you and don’t bind. Look at the rear view. Ask about shrinkage. And when you find the pair that fits you like a glove, buy two!

Knowing what silhouette is right for you is essential. Your goal is to create balance and the truth is one style does not fit all. Just because a particular style is trendy does NOT mean it’s right for you. Don’t be afraid to try new styles, however, if it’s not right don’t give in. Skinny jeans have been the most popular choice, but are not always right for everyone. If you want to wear skinny jeans but are a bit curvy, wear a longer top or jacket


that comes below hips, or wear your skinny jeans with boots to create balance. If you’re fuller through the hips and/or the bust, a bootcut will be a better style to balance you out. Trouser jeans can work well on many body types. Steer clear of full-on flares if you’re above a ‘certain age’ as they are better for the younger set. If you’re fuller through the booty, keep your pockets plain and simple. If you’d like to amp up that area, choose pockets with embellishments to make you appear fuller. Choose back pockets that are in proportion with your bum for best effect.

PEACE

LOVE HAIR AND GORGEOUS

Style The style of your jeans makes a statement, so be clear they are right for you. If you’re buying a great pair of go-to investment jeans, opt for a dark wash classic cut that will last you for years to come. Once you have those in your wardrobe, you have room to play around with trendier styles, including distressing, different washes, decorati e sti ching or embellishments. With everything from pull-on to textured and distressed denim, anything goes. Just make sure the look is in line with your own personal style. There you have it. The perfect pair of jeans in 5 easy steps. While it may not feel so easy when you’re in the fitti room, taking the time to go through each of these steps can help ensure that you get the right pair of jeans. And once you do, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without them. TS

BOUTIQUE PICKS

With so much amazing denim to choose from; how do you decide? We asked a few boutiques about some of their favorite brands…

WE LOVE OUR JOES JEANS AND WE LOVE OUR NYDJ

(Not Your Daughters Jeans) NYDJ have a good fit and come in a high rise which is great coverage so you can bend over comfortably and confidently. Plus, you typically have to go down a size and what girl does not like that! Featured: FARRAH FLARE - KRISTEN’S, RALEIGH

WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE ABOUT

MIRACLE BODY ® PREMIUM DENIM

It’s a multi tasker denim with its shaping, firming and lifting for a more flattering figure. It’s designed with an unique front control panel that discreetly holds and firms the stomach and actually is comfortable to wear with a breathe-easy stretch. Not only does the cottonblend fabric shape and slim the thighs, it lifts the rear and makes the legs appear longer. - SMITTEN, DURHAM - AT EASE, RALEIGH 24 | triangle style

Impossible to pick so we narrowed it down to our two favorite in store denim brands...

HUDSON AND JOE’S

Both premium denim brands are incredibly soft and comfortable. They truly form to your body and after days of wear and activity they never lose their form-fitting fit. I also love the fact that they offer many different fits and most are not a really low-rise, which aides in the slimming effect. If someone is looking for a form fitting and sexy fit, that is also comfortable and great for everyday wear. I would definitely recommend these jeans. Featured: Top left: Joes, Top right: Hudson - LILY MAE’S, WAKE FOREST

RALEIGH DENIM

is a local icon. The denim is superb, made by hand and actually forms to the shape of your body. You feel special wearing them because they are unique, made in limited quantities and are actual art for the body. We are in love! Featured: SURRY - LONDON - VIOLETS BOUTIQUE, CARY


Easy....Hands Down....

CHRISTOPHER BLUE

- COOLSWEATS, RALEIGH

Christopher Blue is all about creating the perfect fit using superb stretch denims with excellent "memory". They fit the same, wash after wash ...every time. Our two favorite styles featured: Diane Roll Boyfriend (left) and the Liv Slim. (right)

I love AG for their aged destroyed washes. They go through intense aging processes to get the jeans to feel like you've had them for twenty years! I love HUDSON for the butt lift their pockets give to a flat tush. I love HENRY & BELLE for their Super Skinny Stretch fit that truly makes every woman look and feel like a model in jeans regardless of age or size. It's a jean that I've sold to three generations - I had a high schooler in one fitting room, her mom In the next and her grandma in the next and they all bought the same jean - Amazing! Also love that this is a brand that gives back to the community - their slogan is "the right amount of give" because their stretch it perfect and because they give to various philanthropic organizations including the National MS Society. Lastly our new brand PARKER SMITH stole my heart when I finally found a pair of boyfriend jeans that didn't make me look 3 sizes bigger than I am!

ANDBLING FOUR DESIGNERS FOR FOUR DIFFERENT STYLES...

Each woman around the Triangle has her own signature look, often defined by her favorite trinkets. Our personal embellishments create a unique vision all our own in telling the tale of who we are and what we portray. Some of us have an eye for the eclecti and enjoy pieces that are one of a kind. Others flock to the biggest trend on our favorite Oscar winner. Many keep it classy with jewels that will never go out of style. And we all love to support local arti ts that have made their name one to recognize. There’s one place that carries something for every strong personality in the family, Bailey’s. We asked the team to give us their favorite picks for our stylish readers.

If You’re Looking For Local,

look no further than the Bailey’s designers themselves. They repair and design on site with the finest productio techniques and your valuables never leave the premises. If you have an antique rin that’s not quite right, schedule a consultation o design the perfect repurposed sparkler. If you want to start from scratch, pick the materials and speak with a designer to create something just for you. (Some custom creations an be turned around in as little as t o weeks!) And for the lucky ladies who have a gentleman with a creati e side, hint that he can design an engagement ring that speaks to your individual love story with a promise all his own. The eclectic woman loves to mix and match. Whether it is a retro twist or a melding of multiple tyles, she will always stand out in a crowd. Accessories are her best friends for life. As the exclusive Triangle dealer, Elizabeth Locke curates a beautifu collection that spans time periods and cultures. While her price point begins higher than others, Locke is a modern Italian literature grad from Duke who brings elements from around the world to your vanity. Her work is all made by hand and set in 19kt gold, something Cleopatra herself would have worn. She travels the world to bring Venetian glass and Ancient Greek coins to life as they dangle around your neck as a pendant of the past.

The trendy fashionista is always two steps ahead as she often takes a page from the Hollywood playbook. The top stylists have outfi ed their singing celebs and theatre nerds in the biggest finds for fall. And you can find the most popular at Bailey’s. Phillips House began as a private collection owned by a mother and daughter who enjoyed creating custom pieces. As their Miami Beach clientele grew, they took their work public and are now the hottest commodity. They have been featured in magazines from Elle and Glamour to In Style and the cover of Women’s Wear Daily. Some of their biggest fans include Jennifer Lopez, Reese Witherspoon, Uzo Aduba, Carrie Underwood, and Kate Bosworth. Delicate diamonds are the biggest trend of the season and their ‘Affair’ and ‘Apogee’ collections are ideal. Their work is most definitely fit for royalty, as they were the exclusive jewelry designer worn by the First Lady to her meeting with the Queen of England and the Duchess of Cambridge at Buckingham Palace.

Your jewels don’t have to be hand-me-downs, they’re just investments that will always look perfect on you.

The effortless ease and lux of David Yurman will match the classiest and sassiest gal. The husband and wife duo created their iconic cable bracelets, launching the brand in 1980 and have been on top ever since. Every element is a work of art for the sculptor and painter who created the “bracelet that tells time” and first set diamonds in sterling silver. You can tell a Yurman apart from the rest as their cable cuts and depth are perfectly symmetrical and the patina is always dark. Their work speaks for themselves and will never fade. So, take a cue from the handsome Mr. Matthew McConaughey and Go Frost Yourselves! TS

STYLE SPOTLIGHT

Maggi Bridal

Laura Stanley | Amy Kiszely • WHAT MAKES THE MAGGI BRIDAL EXPERIENCE UNIQUE? We schedule each of our bridal appointments for two hours so that the bride can have a relaxed experience with no added pressure. An expert consultant will work with her and tailor the appointment to best suit her needs. Our fitti rooms are private for the bride and her guests alone. We feel very strongly that each of our brides should have her own unique experience and not compare herself to another bride. Our relationshi continues after the first appointment with follow up for accessories, bridesmaid dresses, and alteration with our in-house seamstresses. • MAGGI BRIDAL HAS BEEN AWARDED THE KNOT'S COVETED "BEST OF WEDDINGS AWARD.” WHAT EXACTLY DOES THAT MEAN? The Knot, the nation's leading bridal magazine, awards wedding vendors in each state that have superior service. The award is based on positiv reviews from actual brides about their experience as well a good standing with the Better Business Bureau. We honestly could not be more thrilled and honored to have been awarded this title for 3 years in a row! • YOU BOTH ARE MEREDITH COLLEGE GRADS DO YOU HAVE A FUNNY STORY TO SHARE ABOUT RECONNECTING WITH ANY ALUMNI? We have enjoyed working with many other Meredith alumnae who have shopped for their gown or who are accompanying the bride and offering support in her decision. We have opened our boutique to visitation for classes in the Fashion Merchandising and Design programs at Meredith College and have enjoyed visiting the classrooms to discuss our career and how bridal differs from other 30 | triangle style

areas of the fashion industry. We always enjoyed learning from the experiences of alumnae in the industry when we were students, so it is truly rewarding to be a part of the lives of the current students. • ARE THERE ANY "SECRETS" ABOUT WEDDING DRESS SHOPPING THAT BRIDES MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT? Appointments are necessary for the boutique to be truly prepared for the bride. We want to do everything to give the bride a great experience. We suggest bringing along the close friends and family needed for support in making the big decision, but to keep the number smaller to not create confusion in the amount of opinions. Pinterest and photos in bridal magazines are always great to begin deciphering what a bride is interested in trying, but we suggest that our brides keep an open mind when actually trying on gowns. We really do find that opinions can change when the gown goes on and that's what makes this job so much fun! • WHAT HAPPENS IF A BRIDE ASKS FOR A PARTICULAR DESIGNER THAT MAGGI BRIDAL DOES NOT CARRY? Our bridal consultants are very knowledgeable about bridal designers' collections in the industry. If we do not carry a particular designer, then we usually try to find a designer that we do carry who would have the most similar look. If we do not have quite the look, then we do try to point them in the right direction to another bridal boutique who can also give them a great experience. We always tell our brides that even if we can't find her dress at our boutique, then we can at least point her in the right direction and give her a great memory. We value the time that we spend with our brides.


• WHEN IT COMES TO WEDDINGS, THERE MUST ALWAYS BE A PLAN B. WHAT IS MAGGI BRIDAL’S PLAN B FOR DRESSES THAT COME IN THE WRONG SIZE OR ARRIVE LATE? First of all, our philosophy is to

be careful so that we do not encounter issues; however, if there is a problem, we are committed to our brides to ensure that the problem is solved quickly and with as little stress as possible. We are also very open and honest with our brides if there is an issue due to unusual circumstances. We have an amazing team in our alterations department that can work wonders with fabric. Also, we have chosen our designers specifically to ensure that they are reputable and will have our back if an issue arises.

• WHAT KINDS OF TRENDS CAN BRIDES EXPECT TO SEE IN 2016? There will certainly be

more intricate beading and gold accents on gowns as well as 3/4 and long sleeves. The trend of the cropped top is gettin more popular. Illusion necklines are still going strong with sheer lace at the neckline or beaded yokes for a glamorous look. Lace will continue to be a bridal favorite, but designers are constantly introducing different textures for a fresh new look.

• WHO ARE MAGGI BRIDAL'S THREE FAVORITE DESIGNERS AND WHY? Mikaella

Bridal represents the classically elegant bride who values impeccable fit and fine fabrics. They pay a lot of attentio to small details such as trimming underskirts with delicate lace. Justin Alexander has beautiful beading and amazing corseting and structure in their gowns that do wonders for a figure! Emmaline Bridal has lovely fabric and unique, playful design details for the ethereal, boho-chic bride.

• ANY DRESS ADVICE FOR WOMEN GETTING MARRIED AGAIN, OR FOR THE OLDER BRIDE? Don't be afraid to wear what

makes you feel lovely! We often hear brides mentioning that they are nervous about wearing something that may look "too young" or "too much like a bridal gown." Every woman has a unique personality and style and she deserves to wear what makes her feel stunning on her special day.

• FINISH THE SENTENCE: WE LOVE IT WHEN A BRIDE…realizes that she looks amazing in a

gown that she thought she didn't have the figure for. Everyone always loves a good surprise!

It’s been said that Lisette Limoges not only wears the pants in her family, she also reinvents them and the Montreal-based fashion designer has now introduced what could easily be the best-fitting and most flattering pants for women, ever. Her unique design for pull-on pants evolved from a technique she appropriated from women’s swimsuit design, specifically formulated for swimsuit bottoms. Wearers of her pants will invariably find an impressive number of design components that contribute to the exceptional fit, style and slenderizing ability that accompanies every product from the Lisette-L line.

Now aboard the fast track express, many other celebrities have followed suit, including Taylor Swift, Kathie Lee Gifford and more. Among the many major magazines to feature Lisette-L are O Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, InStyle, Shape, Redbook, More and Marie Claire. With such a warm reception, fans can expect to find Lisette-L pants for men and Lisette-L handbags this fall. And while it may seem like her amazing notoriety is a form of overnight success, nothing could be further from the truth.

SUCCESS, LONG -COMING

Lisette’s husband Neil was working in fashion industry sales when the two first met. She proceeded to join him, and for the next three decades, the couple made their living as sales reps for other brands. It was here that they say they were able to gain invaluable knowledge of what shoppers wanted, and particularly what they did not want. Lisette credits those years for giving her the insights which would lead to her thoughtful design savvy, adding that she gets inspiration from the people closest to her, and from other designers - both current and some celebrated in the past. She admits to being an avid people-watcher, with a mind on what they’re wearing and their body language while wearing it. Currently, in addition to husband Neil working side by side with Limoges, son David and daughter Kathryne are integral components of the Lisette-L operation in Montreal.

FOR THE LISETTE FIT

Lisette wants to be sure that her designs are not limited to one particular size, body type or style. Working to provide flattering pants that meet the needs and different tastes of any figure, and all ages, remains at the forefront of her every design. Lisette designs aim to be a brand that an unprecedented number of women with varying shapes and ages will now be able to count on to give them the best fit and the most attractive look, without fail. The Lisette Tummy Control System was developed from an extensive search for just the right materials, and will continue on an ongoing basis, from Lisette’s worldwide travels to find the very best components for Lisette designs.

STICK WITH WHAT WORKS

STYLE FIT+ Perfect for women of every age

When it comes to determining anyone’s perfect fit, Lisette suggests that it’s important to truly know your body, and to not try to fit your body into a certain look that doesn’t feel good while you’re wearing it. Although it can be tempting to move from new style to new style in pants, finding your best style or cut is the way to make sure which new styles will flatter you the most. Lisette’s fondness of the current bohemian trend comes from its expanded range of possibilities. She suggests mixing components and styles and taking risks, adding that it should always be a fun process.

WHAT’S TO COME CAMERON VILLAGE 437 Daniels St., Raleigh (919) 787-9073

Future plans are already in the works, with exciting fall season designs (also ideal for year-round wear,) currently


being shipped out to retailers. These soon-to-arrive awaited Lisette creations will now not only include pants, but finally, beautifully designed jackets and tops too. Shoppers will discover a nice variety of perfect looks for chic, sophisticated evenings, as well as fun choices for work, home and nights on the town.

THE O FACTOR

With a combination of perfect timing and proof-positive in the proverbial pudding, Oprah Winfrey happened to discover Lisette-L pants when she was outfitted by her staff in a pair for her October 2013 O Magazine cover. Lisette had earlier met with Fashion editors for O Magazine in NYC to present her line, and as she was en route back to the airport, the editors emailed her, requesting some LIsette-L pants for Oprah to personally wear. Her staff had imagined that Oprah would love the line, and they were spot-on! She fell in love with them, claiming they were the best fitting pants she had ever worn, and even took them home with her. It was Oprah’s response to these pants that would become Lisette-L’s pole-vault to the inner circle of celebrated household names across America. Since that time, Lisette and her family have become good friends with Oprah, supporting her “The Life You Want” tour, by traveling with Oprah to 8 cities. Lisette credits Oprah’s generosity in promoting the Lisette-L line for its current boom of success, sharing that “Oprah has been like a big hug to us...she is just so kind and supportive, and we are grateful to her.”

ASK ANNA Hi Anna, I recently tried Botox for the first time. I had a pretty deep vertical frown line, and although the botox did lessen it some, it was still pretty visible. What else can I do to get rid of the wrinkle? Would you recommend more Botox? (I originally had 30 units) or would you suggest something entirely different like a filler? Thanks ­ Deborah The intention of Botox is to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that cause those wrinkles to form in the first place. When at rest, if you still have visible deep lines, most likely Botox is not the solution. My recommendation would be to seek a reputable facility that offers a range of medically supervised treatment options. Based on the way you’re describing your frown line, it seems as if one option for you may be Belotero, a dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a natural component of your skin. Unlike other fillers, Belotero works well to fill in specific wrinkles, without creating volume or overfilling the area around the injection site. As stated on their website, Belotero integrates seamlessly into the skin, allowing for immediate and smooth correction of fine to deep lines. As with most fillers, this is not a permanent fix so the length of results depends on the filler selected. A more lasting option may be to receive a fractional laser procedure. There are several options, such as Fraxel or Halo by Sciton. These lasers work to create columns underneath the skin, which stimulate collagen and elastin, while leaving the outer layer of skin in tact. This results in plumper, firmer skin over time, which decreases the appearance of deeper wrinkles. One thing to note about laser is the final result is not always instant, and there may be some downtime associated, whereas fillers are more instantaneous but with effects that do not last as long. This is why it’s important you seek a reputable facility, and you are explained all of your treatment options so you can make an educated decision for yourself.

Anna teaches and consults on corrective makeup and innovative skin care to dermatologists, plastic surgeons, estheticians, and spa owners worldwide.

CLASSIC DENIM GLAMOUR Fresh, hydrated skin and timeless makeup always pairs nicely with a classic, casual denim look. Both our denim models were given a flawless foundation with Arbonne’s Intelligence® CC Cream. What is a CC Cream you ask? Complexion Control (CC) Cream is a lightweight, buildable coverage foundation and skincare in one. Skin instantly appears healthier with a dewy-looking complexion as seen on our models. A pop of pink on the cheeks along with a soft, smoky eye and neutral lip completed the effortless looks for these denim beauties.

THE ART OF BUYING ART

WHETHER FOR PLEASURE OR INVESTMENT; YOUR STEP­BY­STEP GUIDE TO BUYING ART FROM ORIGINALS TO LIMITED PRINTS.

Who hasn’t dreamed of finding a long lost masterpiece in our grandmother’s attic or a bargain of a lifetime in a house sale? Art is fast becoming a popular investment, surpassing the amount spent on antiques and furniture. Paintings are achieving good prices, outperforming stocks and shares, and can be a worthwhile nest egg if you choose wisely. Art is one of the most pleasurable ways to invest your hard-earned money--with the added bonus of having years to enjoy it. WRITTEN BY APRIL JONES

Written by April Jones


So whether it is the way a carefully chosen painting enhances a living room or how a favorite original print inspires its owner to become an avid collector, there is no escaping the fact that art is there for us all to enjoy! Not a problem if you have a seasoned art critic in your circle of friends but, where to start for the inexperienced when buying art for the home?

DO YOUR RESEARCH

Consider the purchase as you would any other investment decision or home purchase, and educate yourself as much as possible before buying a piece of art:

• Visit as many galleries as possible and talk to the staff. • Visit art school annual degree shows, which generally take place in May or June. •  Visit art fairs where you can see many different galleries in one place. • Theatres, cinemas, cafes and libraries often display art that is for sale. • Look at art magazines for information about what is happening and what is hot to buy. A great place to start researching art locally is Artspace, on Davie Street, in Raleigh, which is a non-profit visual art center dedicated to presenting quality exhibitions and educational programs within an open studio

environment. The center also promotes the visual arts by making the creative process accessible to the public–providing a unique environment where artists invite the community to become part of the creative process. In addition, Artspace offers educational programs alongside an exhibition venue for regional, national and international artists.

BUDGET

When buying art for your home, either study the market thoroughly or pay for independent advice. Be prepared to invest substantially at the start, either through buying a work by someone well-known (which is less risky) or spreading the risk by buying a larger number of works by lesserknown or even unknown artists. • Galleries have price-lists on display; if not, ask to see one. • Research the price range of the sort of work that you like and fits your budget. • You may have to frame, transport or insure your work of art; check exactly what is included.

• Buy works you genuinely like, just in case the investment doesn't work out. • Red dots by a work indicate that it has been sold, a half dot that it is reserved; but ask anyway.

EMERGING ARTISTS

Buyers can also get good value by buying the work of young artists who are establishing their reputations. If the right choice is made, considerable returns could be made over the long term. Purchases of up and coming artists have yielded excellent returns over the past few years and the investment return on a particular work can be substantially increased if a gallery is promoting the artist.

LIMITED EDITIONS

Many types of work are editioned. Each work is numbered and usually signed by the artist: Each one is equal, although many people like to buy either the first of the edition (1/250) or else a low number. Works of art in limited editions include:

Shutters, Blinds, Shades Draperies and Valances Bedding and Pillows Wallpaper and Rugs Furniture and Upholstery Lamps and Accessories

prints, often called artists’ or original prints to differentiate from mechanically printed reproductions (like a poster); types of print include etchings, engravings, screenprints and lithographs. multiples are two-or three-dimensional works produced in a multiple edition by artists. A multiple might be a small sculpture, a poster or a T-shirt. artists' books may be unique and by a very wellknown artist at a fraction of the cost of their other work. photographs can be unique but are often editioned and sometimes combined with digital technology. Large photos are often mounted on aluminum or foam board. sculpture, especially bronze.

CARING FOR YOUR ARTWORK

• Keep away from direct sunlight. • Minimize light damage by using UV protective glass in the frame. • Handle your print with the upmost care. Always wear white gloves to avoid finger marks getting onto the surface of the print and causing damage. • If your print is re-rolled, then make sure that tissue paper is first put over the front of the print to protect it. • Don’t attempt to remove the authentication label attached the back of your print. If you try and do this, it will destroy the label and damage the back of your print. The label is there to indicate that the print is not a forgery. If it or the stamp is tampered with or removed, it will impact the value of the print and might no longer be identified as a signed edition. Because a lot of people treat buying art in the same way they treat buying home furnishings, it can be part and parcel of putting your home together. You might expect to spend thousands of dollars on a suite of furniture, so why not spend a bit on what you hang on your walls. Art is personal and subjective: Buy what you love, first and foremost.

WINDOW TREATMENTS TRADITIONAL OR TRANSITIONAL, WINDOW TREATMENTS CAN PROVIDE MAXIMUM STYLE WITH MINIMUM FUSS.

Whether you choose to bring the outside in or to keep what’s on the outside out, window treatments add the finishing touch to any home. A simple makeover—such as the changing of your drapes or shades—can update your interior decorations and improve the entire feel of your home. What your windows wear can fit the mood – or even set the mood of any room. Simple or elaborate, contemporary or traditional, window coverings give you an excellent opportunity to tie things together with texture, design, and color throughout your entire home. Written by April Jones 62 | triangle style


A VARIETY OF COVERINGS Paula Fullerton, from Sew Fine II, in Durham, says there’s a big difference in fabrics and hard treatments throughout the country; and each region, naturally has its favorite. Here in The Triangle, shutters and drapery panels are especially popular--offering great versatility, controlling the light that enters a room, and fitting in with any decorating style. Beautiful floorlength drapery panels, though, remain the epitome of North Carolinian window fashion: These can be simple or embellished with trim; casually presented in cotton, or elegantly presented in silk; and always touch the floor. CURRENT TRENDS A current trend is to use outdoor rated fabrics and trims for interior window coverings. The fabrics range from sheer to chenille, and have a "hand" as soft as any interior fabric. The selection of the patterns and textures has never been as large. These fabrics resist sun damage at the windows, resist fading, and can be cleaned with a simple solution of bleach and water if soiled. They are most often use these in moist areas such as bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms as well as rooms where the draperies or valances are likely to be "handled" such as children's rooms. LATEST TECHNOLOGY Hunter Douglas has introduced just this summer the Powerview™ line of motorized window coverings. This option is available on the Hunter Douglas cellular shades, sheer shades, roman shades, woven wood shades, and roller shades. The remote has the appearance of a decorative pebble to be discretely placed on a table in any room setting. Shades can be programmed to raise and lower at specific times, at seemingly random times for a "vacation setting". or stop at a favorite position chosen by the homeowner. No wiring is needed for these shades, they are battery operated.

LOOKING FOR A LITTLE PRIVACY...? • FABRIC OR ROLLER SHADES generally offer complete window coverage. Most roller shades are made of vinyl or fabric that is usually opaque, while fabric shades (Roman, balloon) are lined and custom-made to your exact window measurements. • CURTAINS AND DRAPERIES, when drawn, will also close off the view. Add linings that will enhance the opacity and durability, and arrange the center overlap to eliminate open spots. • PLEATED AND CELLULAR SHADES (in non-sheer materials) have full glass coverage for privacy. Many styles can be ordered with a "top down" feature, so a portion of the glass can be visible at the top of the window to let in light and have a view. • SHEER CURTAINS AND DRAPERIES may afford a bit of daytime privacy; however at night most will turn practically transparent with indoor lighting. If you love sheers, but want privacy, then use shades underneath for privacy after dark. • MINI BLINDS, WOOD BLINDS, AND SHUTTERS will all provide a nearly private environment. Be aware, however, that with each of these there is a small possibility of seeing through the slats at certain angles. fall | 63


IN HOME CONSULTATION However, if coordination isn’t really your forte (there are so many aspects that should first be taken into consideration), it’s often better to have a decorator come to your home. That’s because it’s important that the fabric and treatment style compliment your house-- with factors such as lighting, room layout, home style, and decorating taste all being equally considered. After the materials are selected, the decorator measures your windows and later has the window treatments professionally installed. George Cronson, owner of Midas Fabrics, strongly believes in the value of in-home consultations and employs several decorators to make them. He also believes that surrounding yourself with beautiful decorations really has a positive effect on your mood and on your wellbeing. Therefore, if you’d like to coordinate

your new window treatments with other items in your home—requiring either bedding or upholstery material-his seamstresses and upholsterers can help complete your new look. PRACTICAL, YET BEAUTIFUL

In today’s new homes, with many large windows, light control is a big issue especially in bedrooms and media rooms. Having operable custom draperies (as compared to single stationary panels) can be very functional, decorative and fit your windows precisely. Add a beautiful wood traverse rod and finials, and you will be able to easily open and close your draperies even if they cover three or four window together.

The Greek philosopher Aristotle said, “We are what we repeatedly do.” I am not sure how to express his concept in scientific terms, but for the sake of simplicity let me say that both Aristotle and my very wise mother, who was well-versed in his philosophy, were right according to the recent findings of neuroscience. The brain, it turns out, is flexible. And the good news is that a change in our bad habits into good ones creates a helpful change in our brain’s neural pathways.

When I first heard of this concept, I thought that training my brain to act differently was nothing more than wishful thinking. Nonetheless when my balance became a little shaky, I went to a physical therapist who said she could help me to sidestep this problem and teach my brain to “rewire” itself. She led me to a high-tech machine, had me stand on its platform and hooked me up to straps secured around my waist to keep me from falling. Then the platform swayed back and forth, side to side, as well as both at the same time. As it turned out my center of balance was far from perfect. It was on the lower left side of my body and not in the middle, where it should have been. I was assigned a host of daily exercises, increasing in complexity. Last week my foot nicked a hole on a walking path. But I did not pitch forward or fall. Instead I caught myself without thinking about it. I had indeed “rewired” my brain. Changing our habits can also alter the way our brain responds to the environment. Do we want to be less anxious? Or to have faith in ourselves and be more content? Then we have to create habits that promote positive ways of thinking. No matter what our age, parts of our brains remain “plastic,” meaning it’s never too late to develop new skills, to expand our enjoyment of life or to create different ways of seeing the world.


I’d like to share an experience of my own. About twenty years ago, I realized I had slowly slipped into the habit of seeing life from a negative point of view. What happened to that optimistic, enthusiastic person I used to be? This question came to the forefront when my mother, a spontaneous, looking on the bright side sort of person, came for a visit. The first thing she saw as she pulled into the driveway was my husband jack hammering the sidewalk leading to our front door. She seemed not to notice. Instead she smiled and gingerly worked her way past. Stopping for a moment, she looked up. “What a beautiful sky,” she said. “I haven’t seen one this blue in a long time.” Once inside the house, I said I felt just awful that the refrigerator had broken down that very morning.“No sense in wringing our hands over it,” she said. “We’ll go out to eat. Anything within walking distance?“ “Only a McDonald’s,” I answered. “Oh that would be fun; I’ve often wondered what’s one’s

like inside.” Thus we soldiered on to McDonald’s, squeezed together, walking on an uneven sidewalk, with traffic zooming by. Mom seemed positively elated. On the way back home, she said how fortunate I was to have so much convenience within my grasp: a museum, library, church, grocery store, even a new Y. I hadn’t looked at it that way. Instead of resenting leaving my lovely 1749 farmhouse, with its wide front porch and sweeping Spanish oak trees dripping with moss, I practiced being grateful for having had the experience. Consequently my focus shifted to the advantages of living in the city. And at this stage of my life, to have so much to do within walking distance, even for my grandchildren whenever they visit, has turned out to be a wise decision. And the habit of counting those blessings has opened new neural pathways in my brain: leaving my former gloomy attitude behind and moving my new positive attitude to the sunny side of the street.

THE RAVAGES OF SMOKING Dr. Briley from The Skin Renewal Center at Southern Dermatology talks about the effects of smoking. 4201 Lake Boone Trail • Suite 207 • Raleigh 919-863-0073 • southernderm.com

Dr. Briley specializes in General Adult and Pediatric Dermatology, Dermatologic Surgery, Cosmetic Dermatology and Skin Cancer. She is a member of American Academy of Dermatology, American Medical Association, Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society

Smoking affects more than just your lungs— in fact, your body’s inflammatory response to the toxins can cause major damage to your skin’s health and appearance. Dr. Laura Briley, a physician at Southern Dermatology in Raleigh, sees firsthand the serious complications that arise from smoking. She and her colleagues both agree that skincare patients who smoke and also deal with conditions like psoriasis or lupus have much more severe skin complications than nonsmokers. “As a skin cancer clinic, we are especially aware that our patients who smoke are, with rare exception, terrible wound healers,” Briley explains. “Their bodies are full of inflammatory toxins, and inflammation comes across the skin. It causes wrinkles, and thickening of the skin. There are actually medications for lupus that simply do not work for smokers.” So what’s a smoker to do in order to replenish and restore the health of his or her skin? First of all, get serious about quitting and find support to kick the habit. “Simply quitting the smoking habit will improve health in so many different ways,” Briley says. Then the treatment goal would be to restore the skin’s elasticity, which would involve a daily routine of moisturizing and sunscreen. The person who is serious about moving on from the smoking habit can also choose from other cosmetic options—such as chemical peels or the Fraxel laser—to smooth the top layers of skin. “Many smokers tend to have more dilated capillaries, and together we might consider use of vascular lasers to improve that condition,” Briley adds. She explains that sometimes the very deep wrinkles caused by smoking, especially around the mouth, are very difficult to treat. But there is hope, and Briley encourages former smokers that once they “have made a powerful commitment to put this habit behind them, we can find procedures that will, at the very least, improve the condition and appearance of their skin.” 68 | triangle style

I HAVE SINCE QUIT SMOKING AND I HAVE NOTICEABLE SMOKER LINES AROUND MY MOUTH, WHAT CAN I DO TO LESSEN THE LINES?

I would suggest either, Fraxel or Restylane Silk. Fraxel is a laser treatment that works by resurfacing your skin, which will hep lessen smokers lines. Fraxel is pracically painless and can be performed relatively quickly. Depending on the deepness and indentation of your lines, I would suggest coming into our office for a consultation to determine how many treatments you may need to see optimal results. Restylane Silk is one of the newest fillers on the block. Aproved by the FDA, studies show 98% of participants treated with Restylane Silk reported an improvement in lip wrinkles. Over 75% of subjects still showed improvement 6 months after their first injection. Plus, there is no downtime and the entire treatment takes approximately thirty minutes.

MY SKIN HAS TAKEN AN OBVIOUS TOLL FROM SMOKING. NOW THAT I HAVE QUIT, WHAT CAN I DO TO LESSEN THE "LEATHERED LOOK"?

Again I would suggest, Fraxel, Retinoids or a Neocutis antioxident such as RéACTIVE Anti-oxidant Serum or Neocutis Bio-Cream Bio-Restorative Skin Cream

The philosophy of Blue Water Spa is to provide the safest and most effective treatments possible. We don't use stock photos from manufacturers to show our clients what a product can do. We use our own photos that show our own results. Blue Water Spa was not the first to use CoolSculpting®, Voluma® or Juvederm®. Instead, we did internal research and perfected our protocol. Our photos provide evidence of our expertise. Today, we are the top provider of those treatments in the Triangle, and among the top in the nation. Likewise, we did not jump on


the bandwagon of treatments like Evolence®, Mesotherapy®, Zerona®, Artefill® or Thermage®. Some of these products are no longer being produced, while others have fallen out of favor.

BEFORE AND AFTER PHOTOS: When we start offering Kybella™ to clients, it will be when we have our OWN before and after images to share. We will have perfected our technique so we are confident that our clients get the very best results possible.

NUMBER OF TREATMENTS PERFORMED: When choosing a Physician’s office to receive this treatment it’s important to consider the number of treatments they have performed. As this is a new product to the market it’s

important to make sure you are not the first patient they are treating with Kybella™.

POST TREATMENT PROTOCOL: Once we start offering Kybella™ it will be when we will have refined our protocols so that recovery is as fast and comfortable as possible. Rest assured we are working very diligently on Kybella™. It is a big decision not to accept money from people who want a procedure now. But, Dr. Law and his medical staff at Blue Water Spa, are committed to safety and consistency. We will have many of our own photos to share very soon.

THE EXPERTS SPEAK

Juvéderm You may be candidate for Juvéderm® if you have wrinkles on your face or around your lips that you wish to diminish. Juvéderm®, a dermal filler, has been recently approved by the FDA for volumizing and correcting deep folds and wrinkles such as nasolabial folds (the lines between the nose and the corners of your mouth). Juvéderm® produces smooth and natural results that contain the highest concentration of non-animal and cross-linked hyaluronic acid that can last up to 6 months or longer. It can fill in and reduce the depth of the nasolabial fold or depressed acne scars. Juvéderm® can be done in the office by appointment. A topical anesthetic or an injection of numbing medicine may be used, if desired, to minimize discomfort. Its hyaluronic acid with gel particle suspension formulation creates a smooth gel that flows easily into the skin, creating volume. How Does Juvéderm Work? As you age, your skin loses some of its hyaluronic acid, a process that is sped up if you’ve spent a lot of time in the sun. The hyaluronic acid in Juvéderm® helps keep your skin hydrated, thus restoring and maintaining its volume. Hyaluronic acid also appears to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that contribute to the skin’s fullness and elasticity. Juvéderm manufacturer (Allergan) uses a chemical “cross-linking” process that binds the individual chains of hyaluronic acid into a long-lasting gel with a very smooth consistency. Because of the gel’s smoothness, your face also looks and feels smooth and natural. What Is The Treatment Like? Most treatment sessions take only about 15 minutes. You can have the procedure done over your lunch hour and go right

74 | triangle style

back to work or to your other afternoon activities. With a very fine needle, the gel is injected into the mid to deep dermis layer of skin. Although any discomfort from the injections is minimal, you may choose to have the treatment area anesthetized beforehand. To find out if Juvéderm® injections is right for you, give us a call at (919) 554-6754 to schedule an appointment or use our online appointment scheduler.

Removing tattoos just got faster. Sculpt MedSpa - a provider of PicoSure™ technology in Raleigh, offers both 755 and 532 wavelengths to ensure optimal removal of all colors of tattoos.

HOW DOES PICOSURE™ LASER TATTOO REMOVAL WORK?

Laser energy is delivered to the tattoo, targeting the ink and breaking it down into smaller particles. The particles are eliminated through the body’s natural processes resulting in a lightening of the tattoo ink.

WHAT DOES LASER TATTOO REMOVAL FEEL LIKE?

For many patients, the feeling of laser tattoo removal has been compared to what it feels like when getting a tattoo, however it is very fast. Your practitioner will work with you on the best comfort option based on your individual situation.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL TATTOO REMOVAL REQUIRE?

The number of laser treatments needed for tattoo removal is dependent on a number of variables such as ink type, size of the tattoo, location on the body, type of laser used, lifestyle habits, etc. During your consultation, a practitioner will evaluate your tattoo and recommend a realistic treatment regime to help you achieve the best results.

76 | triangle style

HOW OFTEN WILL I NEED TREATMENTS?

While it typically takes 4-8 weeks for the body to absorb the ink particles, every patient and tattoo responds differently. Following the recommended post treatment protocol will likely improve the results and reduce the chance of small adverse events.

HOW WILL MY SKIN LOOK AFTER THE LASER TREATMENT?

The ideal clinical endpoint for the tattoo treatment is an immediate slight whitening or “frosting” of the skin, however that will subside immediately after the treatment is complete. Other observable effects include mild swelling and redness. Your practitioner will direct you on how best to keep the area moist.

MY TATTOO WAS TREATED WITH A LASER IN THE PAST AND DIDN’T CLEAR, WHY WOULD I TRY AGAIN NOW?

Until the launch of PicoSure, Q-Switched lasers had been considered the gold standard for removing tattoos. Q-Switched laser treatments use


thermal energy to heat up and break apart the ink particles. Now with PicoSure, ultra-short pulses hit the ink particle with a pressure so great, the ink shatters into tiny dust-like particles. Because the particles are so small, they are more readily absorbed and eliminated by the body. PicoSure has been proven success in treating even dark, stubborn blue and green inks, as well as previously-treated, stubborn tattoos that were not successfully cleared in the past.

CAN I LIGHTEN THE TATTOO TO HAVE ANOTHER ONE PUT ON TOP?

Tattoos can be lightened in preparation for a cover-up tattoo. Your practitioner may have you wait six weeks between your last treatment and when you have the new tattoo completed.

HOW MUCH DOES TATTOO REMOVAL COST?

The cost of laser tattoo removal depends on several factors, including the size of tattoo and the number of treatments it will require. Most insurance companies will not cover laser tattoo removal since it is considered an elective cosmetic procedure. After your consultation, your practitioner will provide you a price estimate for the treatment series.

movie night Written by Heather S. Parsons • heather@trianglestyle.com

Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, an

Australian television series, it is a crisp, frequently amusing journey into the world of a 1920‘s modern woman, the glamorous and well heeled Private Detective Miss Phryne Fisher. Smart, flirtatious and a bit on the wild side, Miss Fisher’s hobby is solving murders, which is certainly lucky for Melbourne, Australia because there seems to be no end of them. My attention, however, focused on Miss Fisher’s beautiful clothes, her fabulous decorating, and the meticulously researched historical detail in each episode, plus the upbeat bouncy music which is a treat in itself.

OUR BUSINESS IS OPENING DOORS

Two Days, One Night stars Marion Cotillard, of “La Vie en Rose.” The film is about Sandra, who returns to work after having been on sick leave for depression, only to find her job will be downsized unless the majority of her coworkers vote themselves out of a bonus in order to keep her on the payroll. Sandra spends Saturday and Sunday going from one co-worker to another, asking each one to give her their vote on Monday. The tension builds as Sandra visits each one. Who will vote for her, who won’t, and what is their reason?

To Kill a Mockingbird The courtroom

scene, in which Atticus, a white Alabama lawyer defends a black man accused of raping a white woman, is Gregory Peck’s finest hour. The film, “To Kill a Mockingbird,” is a faithful adaptation of Harper Lee’s much-revered classic novel.

Set in the Great Depression, the courtroom scene in both the book and in Peck’s portrayal of it in the film has become a symbol of the sanctity of the law, the gatekeeper of its highest principle: the right of each man to a fair trial no matter what his charge. And in defending him, the law requires his lawyer do his best, regardless of any of society’s prejudices, whether they be those of race, religion, or social standing.
