Maria Pinto to Start ‘Salon’ Series of Talks in Chicago

FASHION TALKS: Maria Pinto is about to launch a quarterly salon series to engage her customers in a conversation about fashion, art and culture at her M2057 Style Studio in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood. But first, the fashion designer, whose designs have been worn by First Lady Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey and Brooke Shields, will participate in the city’s second-annual Lake FX Summit and Expo, to be held May 13 to 15, joining the likes of artist Nick Cave, chef Graham Elliot and jazz musician Ramsey Lewis. Considered the Midwest’s largest free gathering of artists and creative entrepreneurs, Lake FX will offer more than 100 talks, panels and workshops geared toward those working in fashion, culinary, film, visual arts, performing arts, music, technology and design. Most of the Lake FX events will take place at the Chicago Cultural Center.
Pinto’s salon series starts June 5, featuring a conversation about 1920s fashion between Pinto and Petra Slinkard, curator of costumes at the Chicago History Museum. “Our primary tool for this engagement is through fashion, but fashion that is deeply connected to the arts and culture. We have learned that our clients are not just interested in the clothes we create, but also

Carolina Herrera to Start Selling Bridal in London at Moda Operandi

For the first time, Carolina Herrera will be selling her wedding gowns in the U.K. through a new partnership with Moda Operandi.
From Nov. 25 to 28, a Carolina Herrera Bridal trunk show will be held at Moda Operandi’s London store in Belgravia. Shoppers will be the first to pre-order gowns from the fall 2016 collection. The alliance is in step with the American designer company’s focus on expanded global distribution. The three-day event will mark the first time Moda Operandi has gotten into bridal in such a major way.
Brides-to-be will find fluid silhouettes with embellished intricate lace scallop necklines and a bodice that appears to have a panted motif due to crystals and hand-placed lace on organza. Other styles feature chantilly and guipure lace appliqués on tulle, and sheer layers and pleats. For fall, there is also a palette of blush tones and nudes.
Since she launched her bridal collection in 1987, Herrera has dressed a range of well-known brides including, recently, model Hilary Rhoda, who wed former New York Ranger Sean Avery last month. Olivia Palermo wore a Carolina Herrera ensemble for her wedding last year. Many fans of the designer know her wedding gowns from Kristin Stewart’s “Bella Swan”

Chrissy Teigen’s Maternity Style Has Gotten Off to a Fabulously Sexy Start

Since announcing she was pregnant last month, Chrissy Teigen has done us a serious solid, stepping out in all kinds of outfits that show she’s already mastered maternity style. Her take on dressing for two is as sleek and sexy as you’d expect, and we’re willing to bet she’ll give new mama Blake Lively a run for her money when it comes to sexiest baby bump. Whether you’re working to pick cute maternity outfits or most definitely do not have babies on the brain, her outfits are worth paying attention to: At the root of all of them you’ll see ace styling maneuvers, but also a positive feeling that her new shape is beautiful and there’s no need to try to hide it at all.

chrissy-teigen-pencil-skirt-fallout-launch-party

For a launch party at the end of last week she tucked a white tank into a high-waisted skirt with a seriously steamy leg slit. The slender white panel that cuts from waist to hem shows the magic of color blocking too, defining her tummy to make it obvious she’s pregnant (and the slight pattern variation on the top part of the skirt also helps). Both style tricks are good at creating curves when desired, but also helpful for expectant women who want to make it apparent that, yup, they’ve no-doubt-about-it got a bun in the oven.

For a recent date night she relied on vertical stripes from Balmain to lengthen her bod. The trick is an oldie but a goodie, and is definitely a look for pregnant mamas to try when they’re wanting to feel as long as possible. The curve-hugging pencil skirt also shows off her curves in a saucy way, and we love the fun choice of metallic gold on black.

The bombshell wasn’t hiding anything in the clingy T-shirt dress she chose for errands—it even looks like she skipped a bra—and we love that she went for something comfortable.

chrissy-teigen-workout-crop-top-leggings-pregnant

The day before had Teigen rocking a cropped sweatshirt and black leggings, the sort of gym combo that’s no shocker to see on a Sports Illustrated swimsuit babe. But what makes it so noteworthy is that now, when she has every right to be a bit more body-conscious than normal, she’s thumbing her nose at the idea that she should conceal her shape. Yes, she looks flawless, and yes, we can’t really spot a rounded tummy, but women in the early months of being pregnant often talk about how it’s an uncomfortable feeling— you might feel a bit heavier than normal, but it’s not yet totally apparent you’re expecting. With that in mind, we love that she gave us a crop top moment and expect more to come. (Her sunglasses, FYI, are Victoria Beckham).

For a CFDA party in Los Angeles, she rocked suede pants and a wraparound obi belt, neither choices that scream pregnant lady (but they do yell fashion crowd: it’s a spring 2016 runway look from Jill Stuart). The photographed look is striking, but there’s a back story that needs telling to fully get why this is such a teachable moment for ladies everywhere. Per an Instagram share, the pants didn’t quite want to accommodate her belly. Instead of having a melt-down and deciding to go with another option, Teigen relied on a skilled tailor who managed to use fabric from the bottom of the pants to conceal the gap. Lesson: Make it work and don’t get discouraged if something is a bit too small. Pregnant or not, the numbers on size labels don’t define us.

And on the actual day that she announced her pregnancy she was out at a La Mer event, wearing a zip-front white Kayat dress that was super sexy. Her bump was maybe visible from certain angles, but for the most part it’s nonexistent. Still, we predict this is a style she’ll come back to as her pregnancy progresses. With banding slightly above her natural waist, it’s similar to an empire waist style and ideal for allowing the curvy of a pregnant tummy.

Seattle Shakespeare Company’s The Comedy of Errors; A Fun Filled, Slapstick Vision That Entertains From Start to Finish

Seattle Shakespeare Company recently premiered The Comedy of Errors at the Leo K Theatre, and the show kept the audience in stitches from beginning to end. I am not much of a Shakespeare fan, and I usually study the plot beforehand just so I can follow what’s going on.
2015-09-21-1442820553-8654740-ComedyofErrors.jpg
I do enjoy the poetry of the verse, but without doing any pre-play study, I generally find the plots confusing. Not so with this production of The Comedy of Errors. It was brilliantly done in a way even I could understand what was happening without any knowledge beforehand.

And I now have some sense of what my father must have seen when he was a young boy and had the opportunity to watch the Marx Brothers trying out their movies in live theater before they were actually filmed. This version of The Comedy of Errors was like a Marx Brothers show, filled with physical comedy and so much slapstick that I almost expected someone to get a pie in the face. That didn’t happen, but characters were constantly barging in and out doors, running around every inch of the stage and bouncing off each other like ping pong balls.

All of this was occurring while the actors articulated every word of the play with eloquence and bravado. The only issue (for diehard Shakespeare fans) was that the audience’s laughing often went on for so long that it drowned out parts of the actors’ dialogue.

All in all, this production of The Comedy of Errors is a truly entertaining adaptation well worth seeing at least once. The Comedy of Errors continues through October 11 at the Leo K. Theatre at Seattle Repertory Theatre.

Why You Should Start Over With Linda Lavin at 54 Below

There is a line in Matilda where Mr. Wormwood sings: “All I know I learned from telly.” It’s meant to be a negative, and I get why, but I am not ashamed to admit that I learned a lot from television. Two shows I watched many times growing up were Alice and Knots Landing, mostly in reruns. So needless to say I was extremely happy when The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife was announced. This was before I covered theater for a living, back when I was a mere fan, and I knew I had to go. Lucky for me, not only did I see Linda Lavin and Michele Lee in that, but I’ve 2015-09-11-1442007389-4141635-LindaLavin.jpgseen them both since, Lavin more frequently than Lee. While the latter is currently donning a tremendous amount of stage makeup and multiple wigs for Wicked, the former is gracing a more intimate stage, that of 54 Below. You should go tonight or tomorrow.

This isn’t Lavin’s first visit to 54 Below, though it’s the first time I’ve had the opportunity to enjoy it. Lavin’s Starting Over is so named because she says “that’s what I’ve been doing my whole life.” She doesn’t delve very deeply into any Lazarus-like experiences she may have had, but it doesn’t matter. Lavin, age 77, is as charismatic as she has ever been. She delivers a line and a song with a tone that is immediately identifiable and still unique. About a quarter through the piece, she discusses briefly her performance off-Broadway in the mid-1960s revue The Mad Show, with music by Mary Rodgers, and makes light of the fact that the song she is about to sing, “The Boy From…,” features lyrics by Esteban Ria Nido (aka Stephen Sondheim). Lavin’s delivery of that song, with a faux Spanish accent and an eye roll, shows her at her best.

I’ve always known that Lavin started out onstage in musicals. She notes in the show that as a child she wanted to be a dancer, but at the age of ten turned to singing, and after that, sang always, including “when a fridge opened and the light turned on.” I knew she starred in It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s Superman on Broadway. (For those of you who — like me — missed that performance originally, you’ll get to relive it a little bit at 54 Below, as this many years later she delivers a version of “You’ve Got Possibilities” perfect to samba to if there was a dance floor. In fact, she dances a little bit onstage with a life that belies her age.) Most people however don’t know she is a singer. She’s now best known for television and plays. So it was no surprise to me when someone at a neighboring table snuck a picture with a whisper to his companion: “She is actually good.”

Lavin is clearly someone who loves the stage. One of the (many) reasons I don’t generally like cabaret is that the “spontaneous” patter never feels that way. Lavin has clearly been doing this act for years and the reactions and dialogue are certainly more actress than person at this point. However I never felt cheated because of that. It is Lavin’s joy of being up there that carries the night. A recurring theme of the night — not surprisingly for a show that is called Starting Over — is that when one door closes, another opens. At one point, after pianist Billy Stritch delivers a touching rendition of “Cottage for Sale” and the mood has turned melancholy , Lavin reiterates the “door” statement and then exclaims: “But it’s hell in the hallway!” I knew this was not a sudden declaration, thought of in the moment; I still laughed. She sells it. That wry persona you might know from the small screen is accompanied with enough warmth that you want to follow her lead.

You have two more performances to catch her this go-round — tonight and tomorrow. There are tickets still available. Buy them. Eat some food. Enjoy someone who is really a treasure. Oh, and then also buy tickets to see her in Manhattan Theatre Club’s Our Mother’s Brief Affair starting in January. We all know she is genius in straight plays, as evidenced by her Tony win and handful of additional nominations. Oh, and while you’re supporting Lavin, consider seeing Lee as well. Although her 54 Below dates are behind her, not only is she in Wicked, she’s performing her solo show, Nobody Does It Like Me, The Music of Cy Coleman, at the Kennedy Center in November.

Snap up your ideal pair before certain sizes start becoming impossible to find, and begin them wearing immediately.

A look from Madewell fall 2015

The Chelsea boot is easy to wear thanks to its slip-on-and-go construction, but far from messy due to minimal lines and polished leather. The style is one of those magical wardrobe essentials that has the power to work with any look, from late-summer combos to first-day-of-fall outfits. A-line mini and button-down shirt? Jeans and a chunky knit? Both work!

Though the style’s done in other hues than black (think deep brown or burgundy), the classic color makes for the ultimate clean, sophisticated vibe. Shop some of our favorite styles right now and let us know in the comments below how you wear yours.

Podcast downloads are a wonderful new online way to share files. A podcast is a way to send files from a distributor’s online site directly to the subscriber’s computer, where they can view them whenever they wish. A podcast works by having a small file called an RSS file placed somewhere on the podcaster’s web page. This RSS file is updated regularly, usually automatically with text and links to new media files available for downloading. The RSS file is then accessed by the podcast client of the subscriber’s computer. A podcast client is a small program that goes online to look for the RSS files that the feed subscribers wish to view. There are many podcast clients available for every conceivable need, and most are free to download and use.

Brooklyn Decker’s Maternity Style Is Off to a Strong Start

Brooklyn Decker and hubby Andy Roddick shared the exciting news earlier this week that they’re expanding their family. Decker’s already had a few red carpet appearances since then, meaning an early chance to examine her adorable maternity style.

brooklyn-decker-blue-dress-pregnant-andy-roddick-foundation
To celebrate Roddick’s foundation, she chose a midnight blue silk dress that only flared out under her belly. Since it’s early on in her pregnancy, her stomach is still super tiny, but the decision to rock something formfitting is a pretty good indication that throughout the next nine months she won’t be shy about showing off her new curves.

brooklyn-decker-striped-dress-i-heart-radio-awards-2015
Last weekend she was at the I Heart Radio country festival in a striped maxi, proving that just because you’re pregnant doesn’t mean you should be relegated to a wardrobe full of neutrals.


So this happened… #the3ofus

A photo posted by Brooklyn Decker (@brooklynddecker) on

For the big reveal and announcement on Instagram, she picked another floaty maxi, sharing the news with fans everywhere. Let’s hope for more beautiful boho moments like this one.

How to Give Yourself a Fresh Start

It’s a few days into the new year, but life is already starting to taste stale. Stale as the lone gallon of milk still sitting in your fridge, and stale as the air in your living room from the aftermath of your New Year’s Eve party.

Even your New Year’s resolutions are sounding stale. They seemed nothing but brilliant when you first pounded them out on your laptop. Now you wish you could eat the words because you’re feeling embarrassed, naïve and outed. Everyone knows about them, and everyone will know when you fail.

What you need is a fresh start. But how?

First, ease off on yourself. Forget about jumping on the bandwagon and feeling pressured to start something new or something big. You need to first spend the time letting go of things that no longer serve you. Until you do so, you cannot give yourself a new beginning.

Secondly, just because a date on a calendar changed doesn’t mean you should change instantly. You have years of parental, cultural and other institutional programming to sort through. Don’t discount their influence on your own values.

It also doesn’t happen the moment when you decide to write down a bunch of resolutions. Resolutions are wishcraft disguised as goals, no matter how SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, time-bound) they may sound.

In case you are thinking it will be different this time, slide open that desk drawer and see how many ghosts of New Year’s resolutions past haunt you.

You failed because you are repeating a pattern.

Patterns are accumulations of unhealthy habits that force you into autopilot. Bad habits act as mental prisons. They are difficult to break free, and you may find yourself serving a long “prison” sentence.

But you can make a “prison break.” And who else is best to teach us about a prison break than Andy Dufresne?

If you’ve never seen The Shawshank Redemption, you probably won’t recognize the main character from the movie. Andy was an innocent man who, after having been accused of murdering his wife and her lover, was sentenced to life in prison. Andy’s exceptional ability to give himself a mental fresh start after experiencing repeated setbacks and injustices makes for a good case study. See if you can apply these lessons to your life.

1. “You Get Busy Living or You Get Busy Dying.”
The first step in giving yourself a fresh start is to decide if you want to “get busy living or get busy dying.” Think of it as your “Go/No Go” decision tool. You don’t need the perfect situation or permission from anyone else. It starts when you make up your mind to do it.

2. Take One Bold Risk.

2015-01-09-bold2.jpg

After he overheard a prison guard complain about a topic he knew well, Andy offered a solution, a bold move that nearly got him flung off the roof. But that move was a turning point. It shifted his relationship with other inmates and the guards, and it shifted something in him.

“We sat and drank with the sun over our shoulders and felt like free men.” [Red]

A bold risk will snap you out of your rut like a swim in an icy lake. Take the plunge.

3. Change Perceptions.
Often times a fresh start is difficult because of your history with the people whom you regularly interact with. You might feel boxed in and expected to behave a certain way.

Andy used his knowledge as a banker to change his relationship with the guards. He shifted their perception of him from that of a prisoner to someone who was their equal.

“Dekins just looked at him a second… and he actually shook Andy’s hand. Shook his hand! I near soiled myself.” [Brooks]

Create a shift by changing your response to a given situation from what others normally expect of you. Adopt a new manner of speaking that bridges understanding and mutual respect.

4. Persist Beyond the Point of Failure.

2015-01-09-persist.jpg

Work with your constraints. Don’t fight them. In Andy’s case, powerful forces repeatedly worked against him: the warden, the guards, solitary confinement, multiple beatings, and 500 yards of raw sewage to wade through before he broke free. Despite the insurmountable odds, he persisted. All he carried in his arsenal was a tiny rock hammer and hope.

“There are places in this world that aren’t made out of stone. There’s something inside they can’t get to, that they can’t touch. That’s yours.” [Andy]

5. When You Can’t Change the Scenery, Search Hard for Beauty.
Know that it’s going to get tough before it gets easy. Anticipate this. When you hit that point, you will need to dig deep for a reason to continue. And if you come up empty, you will need to search for a little piece of beauty in that joyless place. For Andy, that meant lifting himself and everyone in the prison yard through the power of music.

“It was like some beautiful bird flapped into our drab little cage and made those walls dissolve away, and for the briefest of moments, every last man in Shawshank felt free.” [Red]

6. Absolve Yourself of Mistakes.

2015-01-09-forgive.jpg

At some point, you will be tempted to question or beat yourself up. When this happens, know that the person you are today will always know more than the self of yesterday. Until you can forgive yourself for your mistakes, you will be your own worse enemy — your own jailer.

“I look back on the way I was then: a young, stupid kid…I want to try to talk some sense to him, tell him the way things are. But I can’t. That kid’s long gone.” [Red]

After all the work you do, what if you still fail? That is always a real possibility. Know that failure is nothing more than a step in the learning process. You simply start again. As Oprah Winfrey wisely noted, “Right now, no matter where you are, you are a single choice away from a new beginning.”

7 Ways Stress Ruins Your Life and 5 Steps That Start to Turn It Around

We think our problems produce the stress we experience, but it’s actually the reverse. Stress causes most of our troubles — from money, family, and work problems, to physical and mental health issues. In working with private and corporate clients, I’ve found that most people realize that stress is harmful, but few understand it as causal… at least until I review the following research findings with them:

Stress and money: When our mind is preoccupied with fears of financial scarcity, it activates stress reactions, releasing stress hormones that dampen the brain’s executive functions. This leads to a decline in fluid intelligence, which is the “smarts” the higher brain generates to solve money problems. [1]

Stress and bad decisions: The greater the stress, the greater the likelihood you’ll make bad decisions at home and at work. Knee-jerk reactions can cause you to make risky or premature decisions. You’ll drop long-range goals for immediate survival needs, and every day you’ll wonder why you keep falling behind instead of getting ahead. [2]

Stress and declining performance: Stress hormones shrink higher brain networks and break the connections between them. This inhibits you from maximizing your full measure of talent and sustaining peak performance. [3] You’ll have a good day now and then, but your brain won’t be able to generate your best day every day.

Stress and dampened creativity: Your capacity for creative insight and innovation is thwarted by stress. [4] Those sudden “aha” moments of insight, inspiration, and comprehension will be few and far between.

Stress and emotional negativity: Stress locks you into fight, flight, or freeze reactions. Your emotional set point switches to negative, predisposing you to anxiety, anger, aggression, paranoia, and depression. [5]

Stress and family: The greater the stress, the more reactive you’ll be to the normal ups and downs at home. You and your partner will argue, criticize, blame, and withhold affection, not realizing that stress is distorting how you see the relationship. Stress hormones also lower sex drive, adding to the estrangement. [6]

Stress and health: Chronic stress impairs the immune system. It wreaks havoc on the cardiovascular system. It damages chromosomes prematurely aging your body and causing the production of cancer. It kills brain cells, and if left unchecked, can eventually kill you. [7] If you add up all the deaths from stress-related illnesses, you have our No. 1 killer.

Obviously, if you want a healthy, happy and successful life, ending stress belongs at the top of your to-do list. Yet 83 percent of us are doing nothing about it. [8] Too often, the wake-up call comes on the gurney in the emergency room. Make no mistake, stress is life-threatening serious. “It is not something that maybe someday you should do something about,” says Carol Shively of Stanford. “You need to attend to it today.” [9]

There is a solution

If you have a problem with stress, it’s because genetics and hard knocks have wired you for a hyperactive stress response system. There is a solution to stress that is based on the capacity of the human brain to: a) rewire primitive neural circuits that habituate stress reactions, and b) stimulate the growth of higher brain networks that enable you to succeed fully. The process of rewiring, called neuroplasticity, is surprisingly simple. It’s achieved through a specific shift in mindset. Norman Doige of Columbia University calls neuroplasticity “the single most important change in our understanding of the human brain in 400 years.” [10]

Neuroplasticity works in real life situations, where stress abounds. It’s been studied in high pressure corporations and found to achieve impressive results in increasing morale and productivity in previously unproductive groups. [11] In an independent evaluation of a training my firm conducted at Wells Fargo, more than 300 managers making a similar shift experienced a significant improvement in their level of stress, job performance, creativity, and personal relationships… all in three weeks. [12] Who doesn’t want those outcomes? It starts with making stress a priority.

5 steps that start to turn it around

If you’re one of the 83 percent who are procrastinating, here are five simple neuroplastic steps that can get your mindset moving in the right direction:

1: Bust Stressful-Provoking Thoughts: Be aware all day of stress-provoking thoughts as they occur. Tell yourself: These thoughts are in me, not in reality. Then refuse to believe the stressful thought and see what happens to your experience. An anxious thought not believed doesn’t turn into stress.

2: Stop Worrying (The Clear Button): Imagine there is a button at the center of your palm that, when pushed, signals the brain to stop worrying. Keep pressing the button while you slowly count to three, thinking of each number as a color. As you exhale on the final breath, let your mind go completely and relax into the present moment. Repeat the process until your worries are gone.

3: Start Each Day in Quiet: Set aside five minutes first thing each morning to frame a positive mindset. Feel appreciation for the gift of another day of life. Set your intention to have a rewarding day. Commit yourself to being at peace on the inside, regardless of what happens on the outside.

4: Take Regular Breaks: A 15-20 minute break every two hours allows your brain to rebound. So, every two hours step away from your work and go outside or to a window. Watch the clouds pass, the wind blow, or the sun shine, allowing your mind to grow quiet and to connect with life.

5: Count Your Blessings: Once a week, at bedtime, recall three things that happened during the previous week for which you are grateful. Then acknowledge three things in your life for which you feel blessed.
