Kudos to Motowners Meryl Davis and Charlie White (above) who captured the gold medal in ice dancing at the  2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. These two have been skating for years together. Currently, they train at the Artic Edge in Canton Mich. The Artic Edge also is the site where Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue train — the duo who won the silver medal in ice skating.

Congrats to all ice dancers around world who look elegant and are a delight to watch!

The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, recently wore a blue fitted dress.   The dress is named the Detroit dress and is from LK Bennett, a London clothier with many stores in the U. S. Kate always looks stunning. There is a site chronicling her fashions — whatkatewore.com and you can see her wearing this dress in many photos.

The Detroit Free Press reported this as well and noted that the dress sells for $395. The dress from the LK Bennett website is below.

In this instance, the color is truly royal blue!Detroit Notch Collar Fitted Dress

There’s a new website in motown, and Neiman Marcus in Troy, Mich.  celebrated its debut with a fashionable bash.  My friend and colleague, Chuck Bennett, unveiled his lifestyle blog —The Social D, designed by Martin LeFlore.  Chuck is well known in the media as a fashion guru and party scene stealer. His words are as melodious as the sounds of Ben Sharkey and Kimmie Horne who performed at the party. From leather to fur, from hot colors to minimal hues, the fashions were fabulous. Philanthropist Danialle Karmanos (top left) and DKWIO founder introduced Chuck as “the godfather of Detroit.” Need we say more?
