Want those bracelets worn by "Glee's" Lea Michele on the May cover of Marie Claire? They're from Janis Savitt, a designer whose collection is carried by Trillium in Green Spring Station. "The simplicity of it makes it so elegant," says Trillium owner Sima Blue. "It's very contemporary, and it's wearable. It's cutting edge."

Still haven't found that perfect prom dress? There's still time. This year's hottest style is a dress that one local prom boutique owner affectionately calls "the mullet" because of its short front and cascading back. The dress is the perfect mix of fashion and function, according to Karen Mazer, owner of Synchronicity in Pikesville. "Young ladies want to have fun at prom and dance," Mazer says. "It's a great idea to have the short dress in the front and the formality of a long dress in the back — just like the mullet. It's different. It's unique. It's very feminine and ladylike."

Find this yellow tulle and satin Sherri Hill dress for $450 at Synchronicity Boutique, 25 Hooks Lane in Pikesville. Call 410-486-8866 or go to


Let's face it. Male models are almost an afterthought in the fashion industry. They don't command as much money or buzz as their female counterparts. In smaller markets like Baltimore, male models are almost completely ignored. The third annual Male Fashion Show entitled H.I.M. (He Is a Model) will exclusively feature more than 20 male models from throughout Maryland. Designers include Illusions Inc., Urban Unisex and Rimarjo. The show is produced by stylists Teronce' Styyles and Touche' Benet.

Attend the Third Annual Male Fashion Show "H.I.M" at 7 p.m. Sunday at Red Maple, 930 N. Charles St.. Tickets are $10. Call 410-302-2645. Email to reserve a table.


Ma Petite Shoe owner Susannah Siger is back from her annual pilgrimage to France with a bounty of fantastic scarves that are sure to add a level of soft sophistication to any outfit. "In France, you're naked without a scarf," says Siger. "Every single French woman wears at least one scarf. So do the men." Siger brought back an assortment of scarves: silk chiffon, silk and linen adorned with sequins. Siger says the scarves can also be worn as turbans, sashes or accents to hats.

Find the smaller silk and linen scarves for $30, and larger silk scarves for $45 at Ma Petite Shoe, 832 W. 36th S. Call 410-235-3442 or go to
