Sugar Cookies Presents The Maison Close Trunk Show

Maison Close Trunk Show

Maison Close Trunk Show

The last thing I want to do is shop for a Brassiere.  Such a sexy word Brassiere, however when you are not wearing the right one there is nothing sexy about how you feel.  I am sure most women share my sentiment that it can be a great task finding the correct fit.  One of the major reasons why shopping for this piece can be such a challenge is because of the lack of personal attention needed for such a purchase.  I have worn the wrong size and sometimes been given the wrong measurements.  Going to a huge store for such an intimate buy can be intimidating.  Perhaps the key to finding your perfect bra is going to a boutique that specializes in personal care and who have years of experience in knowing the best brands that will fit your body type.  Sugar Cookies is my perfect place and could very well be for you too.  Receive a one-on-one fitting to find out your correct size.  Find the right bra to wear under your t-shirts or with your button-down shirt.  You name it, Sugar Cookies has it.

The best way to jazz up a stale look is to accessorize.  Always pass by this store, but never had a chance to go in.  Kara on 6th Ave. & 40th

Not bad, right.  There were also a few necklaces and a few clutch bags that could easily enhance your look for the day or evening. On a budget, also go to Forever 21, but check their online site. Great finds!

It’s My Perspective And I Dress As I Want To…

Just when I thought the men in NYC were doing something stylistic, Kanye says the opposite.  I thought that was ironic that he went on a rant about how bad the men were looking and basically they are clueless in navigating the fashion waters.  As I stated in my last article I have been quite impressed with men and their new found sense of style.  Either my standards are low (not at all) or Ye was just really on his snob that day?  Actually there is no correct answer.  Neither one of us is wrong, at least in my opinion.  Fashion is all about having your own take or perspective, if you will, on how you want to look.  You can love a person’s style or completely hate it.  Sometimes you walk down the street and you admire the man that put a unique spin on his ensemble. Another person will look at that same man and think to themselves, “Did he get dressed in the dark this morning…what was he thinking.”  

Just as it’s my party and I cry if I want to…it’s my perspective and I dress as I want to and so should you!  If by chance you decide to throw on, hmmmmmmm let’s say a sharkskin suit.  Bam, there it is!  Wear it, own it, not everyone will get it, however, sing it with me “It’s my perspective and I dress as I want to, dress as I want to, dress as I want to.”  You get where this is going.  So get your snob on and get your own perspective and begin to craft  your own personal style.

Calling All Attorneys To Assist Haitian Nationals With Temporary Immigration Status

The City Bar Justice Center and the American Immigration Lawyers Association need your assistance!  Please read the following information from the Metropolitan Black Bar Association:  

The City Bar Justice Center and the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) are seeking volunteers to assist Haitian nationals in their application for TPS, Temporary Protected Status.  Below is the formal request for attorney and non-attorney volunteers:

As you may know, Haitian nationals who entered the U.S. before the earthquake may be eligible to apply for TPS, Temporary Protected Status. Haitians have only a window of 180 days to apply for TPS. With a large number of Haitians residing in New York, your assistance is greatly needed.

The City Bar Justice Center will be holding a clinic in conjunction with AILA (the American Immigration Lawyers Association) on Thursday, January 28th from 5:00p.m.-8:00p.m. at the City Bar Association to help Haitians fill out the TPS application and fee waiver request. We are looking for attorneys to volunteer at this clinic.  Please have interested attorneys and other volunteers contact Laura Kolesar at lkolesar@nycbar.org as soon as possible.  No specific immigration experience is required.  If you have employees who are not lawyers but are either notaries or Haitian Creole speakers, we have a need for both at the clinic.

Interested attorneys need to be trained before volunteering, and should register for the free webinar offered by the Lutheran Immigration & Refugee Service, “Applying for Temporary Protected Status for Haitians.” The webinar will take place on Friday, January 22nd from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. EST. Registration can be completed at the link below. We are hopeful that other trainings will become available in the coming days, and will let you know if they do.

https://www323.livemeeting.com/lrs/8001993965/Registration.aspx?pageName=n8lmc68ljl7ck3t0

 We will also be asking firms to provide resources for the clinic, including copies of applications to be completed.  If your firm is interested in helping in this way, please let us know.

Thank you in advance for helping us to quickly pull together the necessary people and resources to make this possible. As always, we are grateful for your commitment to pro bono.   If you have any questions, please contact me.
