History Lesson  “The days of cheap oil and easy acquisition are over. “ -- President Obama, June 2010

A Study In Mudslinging In the January 12 issue of Northern Express, Grant Parsons wrote a piece that touched on behind-the-scenes campaign financing. Mr. Parsons referenced attack ads he received in the mail prior to the November elections.

Sad Story I read with sadness in the Detroit Free Press of 24-year-old Angela Marie Alexie, who abandoned her just born baby boy in an unheated Eastpoint, Michigan garage to die alone in the cold, and who had also previously lost 3 children to foster care, the youngest of which, a girl, suffered withdrawal symptoms because of Alexie’s drug use during pregnancy.

Balance On The Page Having looked through the Northern Express for years, I have finally found something worth reading besides News of the Weird and the Advice Goddess!

An Eye On Congress The U.S. Senate on January 21 voted 98 for and 1 against to adopt a non-binding resolution stating, “It is the sense of the Senate that climate change is real and not a hoax.”

Even in brilliant hues, the tailored denim is still low-key. And don’t be afraid of going bold.

“I couldn’t be more excited about colored jeans being back in style,” said MacKenzie Bickel of Traverse City, who just purchased a pair of green tailored denim jeans.

“Without a doubt, they’ll be a staple piece for my color-blocking styles or just a statement for the simplest of outfits.”

Edgy Prints & Shapes

Take the bright trend a step further with colorful yet edgy prints. These fabrics encompass stylish prints including chevrons, florals, geometric shapes, and futuristic patterns.

“Colored prints are flooding the fashion world right now,” said Bickel. “Whether it be a hand bag, dress, or an eye catching top, the print allows me to show a little personality in my everyday wear.”

Look for feminine dresses in this season’s high-low hemline silhouette which has a high cut front hemline with a lower cut back hemline. The lightweight look is whimsical and flattering on most body types.

PASTEL HUES

Feeling more beautiful than bold? This spring’s sweet pastels are shades of sky, sorbets, and mint.

Their feminine appeal is low key and comes in light weight fabrics, perfect for the day or night.

Pastel needn’t mean boring. Soft shades and creamy neutrals feel flirty when paired with wispy fabrics and pleats. Looking chic never felt so good!
