Welcome To 1984 The Democrat Party, the government education complex, private corporations and foundations, the news media and the allpervasive sports and entertainment industry have incrementally repressed the foundational right of We the People to publicly debate open borders, forced immigration, sanctuary cities and the calamitous destruction of innate gender norms...

Grow Up, Kachadurian Apparently Tom Kachadurian has great words; too bad they make little sense. His Sept. 19 editorial highlights his prevalent beliefs that only Hillary and the Dems are engaged in namecalling and polarizing actions. Huh? What rock does he live under up on Old Mission...

Facts MatterThomas Kachadurian’s “In the Basket” opinion deliberately chooses to twist what Clinton said. He chooses to argue that her basket lumped all into the clearly despicable categories of the racist, sexist, homophobic , etc. segments of the alt right...

Turn Off Fox, Kachadurian I read Thomas Kachadurian’s opinion letter in last week’s issue. It seemed this opinion was the product of someone who offered nothing but what anyone could hear 24/7/365 on Fox News; a one-sided slime job that has been done better by Fox than this writer every day of the year...

Let’s Fix This Political Process Enough! We have been embroiled in the current election cycle for…well, over a year, or is it almost two? What is the benefit of this insanity? Exorbitant amounts of money are spent, candidates are under the microscope day and night, the media – now in action 24/7 – focuses on anything and everything anyone does, and then analyzes until the next event, and on it goes...

Can’t Cut Taxes 

We are in a different place today. The slogan, “Making America Great Again” begs the questions, “great for whom?” and “when was it great?” I have claimed my generation has lived in a bubble since WWII, which has offered a prosperity for a majority of the people. The bubble has burst over the last few decades. The jobs which provided a good living for people without a college degree are vanishing. Unions, which looked out for the welfare of employees, have been shrinking. Businesses have sought to produce goods where labor is not expensive...

Wrong About Clinton In response to Thomas Kachadurian’s column, I have to take issue with many of his points. First, his remarks about Ms. Clinton’s statement regarding Trump supporters was misleading. She was referring to a large segment of his supporters, not all. And the sad fact is that her statement was not a “smug notion.” Rather, it was the sad truth, as witnessed by the large turnout of new voters in the primaries and the ugly incidents at so many of his rallies...

Best look of 2011 3/28/11

Kristy Kurjan - March 28th, 2011
Best Look for 2011? Hint: chances are it’s your favorite style…
By Kristy Kurjan
When you pick up a copy of Northern Express, do you flip directly to the
“My Style” article to check out the featured style that week? For many of
us fashionistas, this is a ritual that brings delight. The outfits
featured are uniquely the individual’s own, proving that fashion can be
both diverse and playful. It brings a smile to our faces and sometimes
leaves us shouting, “I want that!”
So, which trend is claiming this year’s throne of Northern Michigan’s Best
Look? Top honors goes to a style that is summed up in two words: Casual
Chic.
Casual Chic is an understated glamour that is effortless yet demands
attention. It is a great pair of jeans paired with a fitted blazer, a
cotton t-shirt and a statement necklace. It is the sparkly touch on an
otherwise basic handbag. Casual Chic is not just a look but an idea that
defines our region’s sense of fashion. With a relaxed yet polished tone,
it is everything we love for 2011.
We called upon Traverse City’s Rebecca Kass to model the Casual Chic
style. In her dark
pants, simple cami and relaxed fit blazer she personifies northern
elegance. No doubt, once our cameras started shooting, her confidence took
center stage.

PUTTING IT TOGETHER
The main ingredients that compile a Casual Chic ensemble are a flattering
pair of denims, a flowing top and a beautiful accessory. Additional
options include a fitted jacket or a bold scarf.
It is not expensive, but looks like it is. Take the style from day to
night by wearing a statement piece of jewelry -- add a necklace, earrings
or
set of bracelets, but not all at once. Don’t overload on accessories, due
to the relaxed nature of
the look.
Most important of all, be comfortable. The style is equally about the
outfit itself as the ease of wearing it.
“As a realtor, I need to be comfortable and presentable because I am
running around all the time,” explains Kass. “I usually wear flats and a
lot of cotton!”
We are inspired by Casual Chic’s ability to transition with the seasons,
from winter to spring without skipping a beat. Wondering if the
thermometer read 30 or 60 degrees today? With this dynamic outfit, layers
are always an option. Throw a lightweight jacket over a flouncy top for
chilly nights. Have a bright spring scarf on deck at all times, tie it
around your handbag for a taste of color when not in use.
Congratulations to Casual Chic for taking top honor as our Best Look for
2011. And to all of the stylish readers of Northern Express -- we look
forward to the coming year of intriguing styles and fashionable fun!
