In one year, 1993 out the other

December 31, 1992|By Vida Roberts | Vida Roberts,Staff Writer

There's a different energy in America on the eve of 1993, starting with the new tenants in the White House. We're about to install a first lady who's had a real career. (Nancy Reagan's fling in films and Jackie Kennedy's shutterbug stint don't count.) Hillary Clinton had to put her job on hold for a while, but she'll be keeping busy; too busy to keep a pet who needs to be walked. The first cat will take care of business discreetly and independently, thank you.

And there is more to fashion in the year ahead with longer skirts, fuller pants and layered clothing. A reaction perhaps? The Material Girl ran out of material and clothes in her coffee-table venture into shock chic. Less is not always more.

The promise of change lends excitement to the new year, so here's to out with the old and in with the new!
