A Word About Agents
In the article ‘How to Plan a Banquet,’ we included a limited discussion about entertainment, and our basic advice was to hire a competent talent agent who specializes in “casuals,” which means one-day or one-night events, such as parties, weddings, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs and other
Some agents represent actors and actresses, and unless they have a department that handles variety acts and bands, they would be of no help to you.
Some other agents handle only major attractions and celebrities, and unless you’re working with a serious budget, they won’t be able to help you get a band for Aunt Sarah’s 50th anniversary party.
A variety agent is able to help you get that close-up magician, band, and sometimes even name entertainers like Reba McEntire or The Temptations. Those that specialize in variety entertainment are sometimes called “full-service” agencies.
How do you tell who is a competent agent? That’s a good question, because if you asked an agent if he’s competent he’d be a fool to say anything but “Of course!”

High heel shoes: the essential woman’s fashion accessory
Women are big fans of the fashion industry. Putting together a costume is just plain fun. With accessories, such as scarves, jewelry, hand bags, hats and shoes, one garment can be made into several outfits that are suited to day wear, evening wear or a day at the beach. One of our favorite accessories are shoes. The number and variety of shoe styles in your closet can make a lean wardrobe rich in fashion possibilities. In particular, high heels are beloved. Although men find high heel shoes quite eye-catching, women also love their high heels for purely selfish reasons.
Most women like the fact that high heel shoes make them look taller, slimmer and emphasize a curvy calf. A perfectly cute dress can look dowdy, worn with flats, whereas the very same dress takes on a vampy appearance when worn with high heels. If you’re going to the beach, a casual sandal with roping on a platform base and ribbon ties winding up the leg is the high heel shoe to wear with a summery dress. A pair of flip flop sandals or sneakers just doesn’t make the head-turning fashion statement. Remember the song

Get A Magazine Subscription
Many people can not decide whether or not to get a magazine subscription or to continue purchasing magazines from a newsstand near their work. They start reflecting on why they read magazines, why they invest so much money in the written periodicals, and can they choose another route to get a magazine subscription.
People are aware that their magazine subscription seems to be a costly hobby, but one that they do not want to do without. There are others in their office, who think it is a wise business investment.

National Campaign Gives Homeless Dogs New “Leashes” On Life
Each year, approximately four million dogs are up for adoption at animal shelters and breed rescues across the country. Sadly, only two million of these dogs ever find homes.
Actress Minnie Driver and Pedigree Food for Dogs are giving millions of homeless dogs new “leashes” on life, through the second annual Pedigree Adoption Drive. The national awareness and fundraising campaign rallies and rewards dog lovers nationwide who come to the rescue of the millions of shelter dogs waiting to find good homes.
As a dog owner and lover, dog adoption is a cause close to Driver’s heart. “There’s nothing more rewarding than coming home from a long day to the unconditional love of my dog, Bubba,” said Driver. “Dogs from shelters and breed rescue organizations make wonderful, loving pets and I would encourage anyone contemplating getting a dog not to overlook their local pet rescue organizations.”
As part of the adoption drive, Driver and Pedigree hope to encourage adoptions and engage dog lovers in this important cause in these simple ways:
• Support Fundraising Efforts-Pedigree is committed to donating up to million of all 2006 product sales to support qualified animal shelters and breed rescue
Start A Fashion Business
Women everywhere in the world are infinitely in the fashion, particularly in the style which supplements their femininity. Each woman knows that the fashion is not all about putting on the latest style fashion clothing. Having all the latest trends at your hands doesn’t automatically make you the ultimate “fashionista.” Each woman in their good spirit knows that this direction of mode and its body must be complementary.
Hot nice summer days are always exciting season of the year. Except the fact that the summer holidays are the favourite of the students, it is the perfect season to place for the go outdoors such as beach and to show off your body shape and also the latest summer fashions. When it comes to beachwear garments, one expects that people need only one pair of sarong and, beach towel bathing suit perhaps for the season of summer.
All the times that you have a very large industry, there are always smaller markets of place than people can fill. There is a certain number of various ways that the industry of the clothes industry could be subdivided by categories. There is a certain number of various companies which supply with
Before we go shopping for school clothes, we always take an inventory of what clothes my children still have and what they will need for the next year. This will vary from family to family, but with five kids, we only buy what we need.
Taking an inventory of your clothes is really helpful when you don’t want to spend more than you need to or you are working on a tight budget. It’s also helpful when you are trying to cut down on the amount of clothes that your child has. I’m sure every family has one child that empties their dresser drawers on the floor looking for a particular shirt. Minimizing their clothing helps them to be more organized and you have less waste.
Our inventory begins with a fashion show, where the kids can try on all their clothes and make sure they have shirts that match everything that still fits. I keep track of what they have and what they will need. You can have a fashion show be as simple or as fancy as you want. As you have your children try on their clothes, make sure
Lingerie’s Coming Out Party
Undergarments have gone over the top. The latest trend in lingerie is to pair favorite pieces with a ready-to-wear garment, allowing women to show off certain types of lingerie that they couldn’t-or wouldn’t-show in the past.
You probably don’t need to be a fashion historian to know that this trend marks a change in fashion rules dating back for decades. Yet stylists say it’s an idea whose time has come-and one that’s truly taking off.
For instance, Spiegel Brands Inc. recently launched Cami Intimate®-a line that features five collections of sexy, stylish lingerie that’s just “too pretty to hide.” Each collection is paired with a coordinating sweater or cardigan that allows the lingerie to tastefully “peek out.” Here’s a closer look:
• The Flirty Collection features chic, ultimately comfortable, seamless mesh lingerie embellished with gorgeous floral embroidery. All pieces are designed with nylon and spandex to provide comfort and a perfect fit.
• The Chic Collection includes seamless bras, panties and camisoles that are designed like a second skin to eliminate panty lines or lingerie seams. A special process constructs each piece to create a smooth look under lightweight, body-conscious fabrics and knits. These sleek, sophisticated styles provide comfortable support.
Christian Audigier At The LA Fashion Week Spring 2008
Christian Audigier says that the theme of his Spring 2008 collection shown at LA’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week on Tuesday afternoon is “La Vie en Rose,” but a better moniker might be “Trashy French Vamp,” or even “Flashdance on Acid,” based on the styles he sent down the black-carpet-and-glitter runway.
The men fared better than the women in the Audigier show; they mostly wore his signature wildly patterned oversize hoodies, all embellished with the designer’s name and assorted other motifs, usually executed in glittery crystals, studding, and embroidery. Most were paired with jeans, encrusted with Audigier’s huge signature across the backside, again done in glitter, sometimes paired with a giant skull, other times with similar tattoo-inspired motifs. There was a military bent to many of the men’s styles, too; the first male model even wore a military beret and saluted the photographers at the end of the runway. Vests were big, too, and long, slouchy cutoff pants added a street gang vibe.
To make sure the women in the audience (including Brandy, Bai Ling, and chart-topping singer Bettina) got a little eye candy, the designer sent a few male models out wearing nothing but a
Appearing Girlish By Dressing In A Girlish Style
People want to remain looking youthful for as long as they can, and they would do anything to attain it at whatever price they can afford. A lot of them do not acknowledge that sometimes, all it takes is rethinking one’s wardrobe and dressing young.
As we women reach our 30s, some of us start to see signs of ageing, especially on our skin. The fine lines, wrinkles and crows’ feet begin to appear. If we have had a child already and we have not really focused on taking care of our bodies, we would notice a certain thickness around the middle, not to mention a few sags already forming here and there. Plastic surgery may be the answer you need to get your youthfulness back, but sometimes, just dressing young cuts it far enough.
Dressing young does not mean following current fashion trends too closely. No matter how trendy or fashion-forward we are, we would all reach a certain age where some fashion trends just do not suit us anymore. Dressing young is not an excuse either to pull out whatever remnants of the wardrobe we had as
