Tight Pants Syndrome

June 25, 2015

Everything is a health risk these days: too much sitting, too much vigourous exercise, food and chemical issues too great to even consider listing ( although we have written about many of them.) Where does it end?
This week, the internet is flooded with warnings about skinny jeans. Seriously?
The incident refers to an Australian woman who was hospitalized after spending the day squatting in her skinnies while helping friends move. As the day wore on, her jeans began to feel tighter, as her ankles and feet began to swell. Apparently, the constriction of her jeans compressed major nerves in her knees and calves, ultimately cutting off blood flow to her lower legs and feet. After a brief hospitalization, we are happy to report that she is fully recovered from her ordeal.

While this was a real and serious incident, it is not something that is widespread. Skinny jeans have enjoyed their heyday for many years now. Most jeans, especially the skinny ones, have spandex in them to give them a little stretchability and help them retain their shape. No one, regardless of their figure, should be wearing pants so tight that they cut off their circulation. That said, squatting for hours on end is not a comfortable position to be in, and can cause issues regardless of your wardrobe choices. We have been reporting on the flare jean taking over the fashion scene. Perhaps this is your impetus to try them out!

Although this is a true story, it reminded us of a very funny episode from the now defunct Disney TV show, “Sonny With a Chance.”

A Lighter Shade of Pale

December 29, 2014

This season, it’s time to break the age old rule that one should not wear white after Labor Day. Layers of pale whites, greys and beiges look modern and oh-so-chic, when winterized through texture, fiber and accessories.

Go ahead and pull out your white jeans.  These ladies will show you how it’s done.


Shades of winter white layer to create a look of relaxed elegance. A textural sweater,  worn over a sheer blouse, effectively winterizes a white suit. The boiled wool coat in a slightly deeper tone adds richness and depth to the outfit.


Full cut and fluid trousers pair with a simple turtleneck for a minimalist approach to winter white dressing. Light shoes with heavy black soles and a black bag and eyewear balance the look. Bonus points for her expertly cut pale grey hair.


Skinny jeans and sneakers in pure white get the winter treatment when topped with a textural wool coat in a slightly deeper hue.


Woolen layers in varying tones of white are accented by a pale taupe coat and a furry hat.



Shades of grey from icy silver to deep charcoal add dimension to this casual look. White sneakers and a black and white bag complete the illusion of effortless dressing.
