These are a few of the women who shared their fun and fave holiday outfits with us in Her Times last Sunday. Read it all here. These ladies know how to sparkle! They add color and some special jewelry — often with family significance — to their outfits. If you need some ideas for holiday dressing, check out each woman’s special style by clicking right here on  “Our Favorite Things,” a story suggested by Christine Eddy.

Purple with coral? Yellow with blue? Who wears that? Lovely Carolyn Eller from the Erie Art Museum models great selections from The Limited for a recent Her Times fashion shoot by Andy Colwell of the Erie Times-News. Check out how you can wear color blocked outfits in Sunday’s Her Times.

Thanks to Carolyn and fashion writers Lili Morton and Valerie Weaver who give us all the tips on how to wear bright colors this summer.

Check it out — the yellow and blue — wait till you see it — my faves!

About Tall Ship Tales:
Six Erie women — Valerie Weaver, Linda Stevens, Beth Zimmer, Robin Scheppner, Claudia Thornburg and Rachel DeSimone — flew to Macinaw Island, Mich., on Sunday, Sept. 5, climbed aboard the Unicorn — an all female-crewed tall ship — and set sail Monday morning bound for Erie and this weekend’s Tall Ships Festival (Sept. 10-12).

Valerie Weaver, Her Times magazine’s fashion writer, is sending us updates all week about their adventures on the ship. Make no mistake — this is no pleasure cruise — all six women will be working hard as real crew members.

Sunday, Sept. 5, 9:35 p.m.

We just set from Macinaw Island!  We boarded ship at 4 p.m. The first thing we did was climb up the the shrouds 58 feet high. Wow! It was frightening. I almost made it to top when my fear of heights set in. Everyone else was fine.

After that, we had two hours of safety drills. We are all in one small room in the bow. There are six bunks and very, very close quarters; no room for anything, but yourself.

We are on rotating night watch. Claudia and I have the shift from 2 to 6 am. Every half hour we will have to plot and check the engine room. We are really working.

Rachel came down with a bad chest cold on Sat. and is still not feeling well.

Must get up on deck — boy is it dark out here!

Check back soon for the next Tall Ship Tales update from Valerie and the other Erie women aboard the Unicorn.
