The Wrap Dress

This dress style can be worn for a formal or social event. Business dinner? Dinner date? The wrap dress can accommodate, so it’s a must-have in any modern woman’s closet. It closes in front by wrapping one side over and tying it at the waist. Stylish and comfortable, these dresses help illuminate an hourglass figure and give the wearer a sleek appearance, so you know you will always look good in them.

The Asymmetrical Dress

 At least one asymmetrical dress should be in every modern-day woman’s wardrobe. They’ve been around for a while and still reign supreme in the fashion world. Asymmetrical dresses are loved for their slanted hemlines (or necklines). It is where one side is usually higher than the other, sometimes creating peaks. Compared to a traditional hemline, asymmetrical dresses offer a bit of fun, flirtation, and flair.

The Sheath Dress

The sheath dress is the staple dress of the modern dress era. Sheath dresses have become the fashion statement piece in Joseph Ribkoff clothing line. It’s become a power staple of fashion for women in the Royal Family. Sheath dresses have a feminine appeal, but exude the professionalism of appearance that a modern woman today demands. Additionally, it can be paired with a blazer for a more upscale, professional look.

A-Line Dress

For casual social events or backyard parties, an A-line dress is great to wear. With its narrowing effect on the waist and hips appearance and its highlighting of the bust line, it is suitable for most body types. The dress has a fitted top that flares out at the hips and down to form an A-shaped hemline.

The Bandage Dress

The bandage dress is slinky, silky, sexy, and comfortable, loved by all women! It’s the ultimate dress for a night out. The bandage dress is composed of layers of material to create its bandage stripe look, hence its name. Creating a sleek and smooth silhouette, the dress lifts and tucks, highlighting a woman’s curves in all the right places.

Although there are more styled dresses out there, if you are just starting, these are the top 5 dresses every modern woman should have in her closet.

The Times of Bill Cunnigham…The Experience

There is a new immersive experience in NYC this week, just in time for Fashion Week. “Experience The Times of Bill Cunningham” is an exhibit to bring the photographers larger than life into focus. There are two levels at 16 Fulton Street that will celebrate Bill Cunningham’s life and work through a must-see immersive journey, chronicling growth as a documentarian, fashion historian, and culture-maker through a series of multi-sensory exhibits.

One of my favorite parts of the exhibit was seeing Bill’s trademark blue jacket and signature bicycle. For years working at Tiffany & Co., the best days were when we would see Bill Cunningham on the corner of 57th and 5th and watch him in action. The excitement around him was something you could not even imagine. His eye for street fashion was incredible and everyone wanted him to take their photo for the Sunday Style Section.

Dental Implants: What You Might Not Have Known About Them

At some point in your life, you may consider looking into having dental implants. It may be due to damage to a tooth, or even a lack of tooth, or it could be just to help improve your smile. Whatever the reason is, it’s important you know as much about them as possible.

Implants Don’t Decay 

One of the bigger benefits associated with dental implants is that they don’t actually decay like your normal teeth. That means that it’s impossible for that tooth to get a cavity and other such tooth afflictions like you usually could. 

With that said, you should still aim for good oral health, such as brushing your teeth and flossing to keep food particles and other bacteria away from the gums to help keep them healthy. One of the main issues facing implants comes in the form of bleeding gums and gum disease, so be alert and stay healthy; your dentist will advise more.

Dental Implants Are Essentially Artificial Tooth Roots

Many people assume that dental implants are no different from a traditional dental crown when looking into dental care. However, what you may not know, is that there is a lot more to them. For example, did you know that there are three main parts of a dental implant?

They include the post, connector and overlying crown. This post will be the first part that gets placed into the mouth. It will usually be made out of titanium and be fused with the surrounding bone of the jaw to help become a permanent fixture.

The implant’s post will then act almost like an artificial tooth root which helps to stimulate the jaw bone to stop the body from resorbing the bone, which is usually what it does when a tooth is missing. The jaw will be strengthened from this and help the patient keep their facial structures.

The connector comes after it and is attached to the post, which is now formed onto the jaw. Its primary purpose is to be attached to be sandwiched between the post and the dental crown, to keep everything in place and act as a shock absorber when eating. The crown itself will be attached once healing has taken place and will help complete the look and improve your smile.

It would help if you worked with a dentist that understands the procedure inside and out, allowing you to get the best surgery possible. Consider dental implants in Brisbane with Pure Dentistry, experts within their field, a consultation with them will help explain the procedure. They will communicate effectively with you to get the proper care and attention that you need.

You Are Never Too Old To Get Them

There are no age restrictions associated with getting a dental implant. That means as long as your oral health is up to scratch, it will be open to being looked at. Even in your 90s, you will be able to be considered for an implant. 

Most people will look into dental implants between the ages of 30 and 50, but everyone will consider different and unique positions. It is always worth seeking a consultation to find what options are available to you.

One Pan Orecchiette Pasta

Here we have another one-pan dinner. I guess it is perfect timing since the back-to-school rush is upon us. All of my kids LOVE LOVE arugula. It is a staple in our fridge. I was so happy to find this recipe. I knew it would be an instant hit around here. If you do not want to use spicy sausage, parsley and cheese sausage is amazing too. We all like it both ways. And it is soo easy. Let me know what you think! Bon Appetit!!


• 2 tablespoons olive oil

• 1/2 onion, diced

• salt to taste

• 8 ounces spicy Italian sausages, casings removed

• 3 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth, divided, or as needed

• 1 1/4 cups orecchiette pasta, or more to taste

• 1/2 cup roughly chopped arugula, or to taste•

1/4 cup finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, or to taste


Step 1

Heat the olive oil in a large, deep skillet over medium heat, then add the onion. Cook and stir the onion with a pinch of salt until the onion is soft and golden, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir the sausage into onions; cook and stir until the sausage is broken up and browned, 5 to 7 minutes.

Pour 1 1/2 cups chicken broth into the sausage mixture and bring it to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off of the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Add the orecchiette pasta. Cook and stir the pasta in the hot broth, adding the remaining broth when liquid is absorbed until pasta is cooked through and most of the broth is absorbed about 15 minutes.Step 3

Stir the arugula into the pasta-sausage mixture until the arugula wilts. Ladle the pasta into bowls and sprinkle it with Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.
