Fashion forward (and center and guard)

As I sit firmly planted on the couch, enjoying another full day of March Madness, I noticed a trend amongst the basketball players.

(And I’m not talking about falling seeds.)

More and more are wearing tights under their shorts.  A quick survey of Google images reveals many NBA players are making this choice as well.

I for one consider it a slam dunk.

Being a fairly pasty person, I find displaying my glowing gams to be a fashion don’t . The older I get, the smarter this decision becomes.

If these basketball leggings inspire fashion designers of everyday wear…

The NCAA tourney will have more than one winner this year!

Follicle frenzy

I got a haircut today.  Just a trim —

No need to alert the media.

I walked in the salon not knowing how much I was going to cut.  My stylist and I talked about it, adjusted things as we went along — your typical ‘do.  But I realized how different my experience was from an A-list celebrity.

Take actress Michelle Williams, for example.

Kate Young For Target Launch EventShe made a red carpet appearance this week sporting new, longer bangs and short shorts.

Twitter blew up.

Why the new ‘do?  Why the edgier style?  Was it a personal choice?  Was it for a film?

Why, Michelle, why???

After days of questions — media outlets practically panting in their intensity — one proudly announced the answer:

Michelle is growing out her bangs.

Wow.  We are ridiculous.

On the button

I love this photo.

I love the colors, the composition, the lighting.

It even fits the Labor Day theme.

Think of all the work that went into making each button. Think of the hands that sewed these buttons onto shirts, blouses, pants and shorts…and then sewed them back on when they fell off.

Think of the craftsmen who utilized these buttons for all kinds of other projects. Think of the photographer who conceived and shot this very photo.

A lot of labor went into these buttons.

But looking at them takes no effort at all.
