Editor's Note

April 01, 2007|By Karlayne R. Parker | Karlayne R. Parker,UniSun Editor

Last spring, UniSun brought you fashionable men of Baltimore.

That issue was particularly popular, especially with the ladies.

Now it's the women's turn.

Fashion writer Tanika White chose four women she thinks represent the spectrum of looks worn by many residents of Baltimore.

As you will find out, each woman exudes a certain confidence in mixing and matching blouses, skirts, pants, shoes and jewelry to come up with looks that fit their personality and mood.

Dressing with style seems to come easy for some women because they understand how colors and textured items can make or break an outfit.

These women want to make sure they have the right shoes, earrings, bracelets, necklaces or scarves. And don't forget the purses!

When the look is done right, the compliments come without prompting.

Recently, a friend of mine said to me, "Wow, you look so pretty."

I was surprised by what he said because I didn't think I had on anything special. It was just a casual outfit for a laid-back evening -- a pair of jeans and a multicolored blouse that had a low-cut neckline. I wore silver earrings and a matching bracelet.

As women, we want to wear clothes that are appropriate for the occasion, our moods and personalities.

In many ways, clothes tell people what you think of yourself. Turn to Page 12 to learn what these women think and feel about their sense of style. I'm sure you'll agree, these women look fabulous!

Read on and you'll see other stories that matter to your life.

I'm sure many of you have taken the bus to New York in the last year or so to see The Color Purple. But did you know that the hit musical has some Baltimore-area connections? Freelancer Tiesha Higgins takes a look at local people in the play (Page 8). Some of you might know these actors. All of them attended Towson University.

Philana Patterson writes about an issue of diversity, a spinoff from an article she wrote for The Sun's Today section in March. It was about a book called Ace of Spades, which was written by David Matthews, the son and grandson of former Baltimore Afro American newspaper editors. It's an interesting read about life when you are black and white (Page 17).

Enjoy!
