Bravo Regarding the Sept. 28 Northern Express letter “Just The Facts” by Julie Racine, opinion column “E Pluribus Unum” by Thomas Kachadurian, and Spectator column “Fear Not” by Stephen Tuttle: Bravo. Bravo. Bravo....

Right On OMG. Julie Racine’s letter “Just the Facts” in the Sept. 28 issue said everything I was thinking. I totally agree. Amen sister...

Kachadurian’s Demeaning Sham Thomas Kachadurian’s opinion piece “E Pluribus Unum” is a very ill-informed perspective of American history. He attempts to portray our past as a homogenized national experience that has transcended any ethnic and regional differences with “the understanding” that our differences shouldn’t really matter...

Opinions Disguised As Facts Freedom of speech is a founding principle upon which our country prides itself, and because of this we all have a right to our opinion. It is when opinions are disguised as facts that we allow for ignorance to spread like wildfire...

Reject Your Own Stereotypes In his “E Pluribus Unum” column of 9/28, Mr. Kachadurian starts calmly enough with a simple definition and history of that famous motto from the Great “from many, one” seal of the U.S., but soon goes off the rhetorical rails. Alas, this heritage-sharing chat with neighbors soon turns into a dirty laundry list polemic, based on an us vs. them worldview...

Thanks For Just The Facts Thank you sooooo much to Julie in Marion for laying out the laundry list of right wing fabrications in her letter last week...

Color Your Closet!

Kristi Kurjan - April 9th, 2012  


Colorful denim is an extension of the color-blocking trend that cannot be overlooked. For those who are going to splurge on only one item this spring make it a pair of colorful skinny jeans.

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.


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!
