The New Fashion Statement

10 Jan

As a former lifestyle and fashion editor, I’ve written about the stylish “little black dress” on numerous occasions. It’s timeless, classic and yes, ever so slimming. I even reviewed a book with the same title.

But as I watched the Golden Globes the other night, I was proud that the little black dress made a statement for the Time’s Up movement addressing sexual harassment.

Black is bold, elegant and now empowering.

Can we ever have too many black dresses?

Barbara Boz Beautifies Birmingham

Barbara Boz sells her jewelry all over the world, but you can say hi to her and talk treasures in downtown Birmingham, Michigan. Her eponymous boutique is tucked on Maple Road  just east of Panera. Her unique pieces are truly special. They are sold in more than 350 stores worldwide — from Dubai  to Motown. In addition to the signature gold link necklaces, she has some designs with antique pieces. All are perfect for layering. Let’s not forget her collection of stones. Urban chic and sophisticated is how Boz describes her jewelry lines. She also has a store in Harbor Springs, living near the shores of Lake Michigan in the summer. Of course, she has experimented with Petoskey stones. Boz is a transplant from Pittsburgh and fell in love with Detroit. Yes, she loves the people here! “I have the best customers in the world, and they glow about what I’m doing,” she says. “They walk out feeling they have a treasure.” Indeed. If you purchase and wear a Barbara Boz original, you’re in good company. Oprah wore Barbara’s bangles on a former cover of  O magazine.
