Radiant orchid is pretty much everywhere as the color of the year. How do you wear it? How don’t you wear it would be a better question. Purses, dresses, tops, bottoms, visors, hats, shoes, boots, jewelry, nails, lips — even lightbulbs and more. And if the Australian Open is any indicator, the color will hit…

Fashion Friday — shoes men dislike on women

   August 2, 2013 1:31 pm    0

Well tongues are wagging. At the sole of the matter is a survey of the shoes men felt were least attractive on women. No, it wasn’t flip-flops — although I am not a real fan of flip-flops because you announce your arrival in flip-flops long before you arrive! I am also personally not a fan…
