That the daughter's husband was the mother's lover doesn't help matters much, particularly when he turns up dead.

Dear Marylou: I recently was named a vice president of an investment counseling firm, and am putting together a wardrobe that looks suitably "executive." What kind of shoes are best to wear with my new celadon-colored wool gabardine suit from Emporio Armani? K.O., New York, N.Y.Dear K.O.: There's no more perfect pitch to the power look right now than high heels. They imply that you have a limousine at your disposal at all times, otherwise how in the world could you get around in those spindly spikes.

Ida Bernstein, 26, of Fells Point, sprinted 150 yards in high heels and out-raced a pack of similarly shoed women to win the second Regis & Kelly High Heel-a-thon Wednesday. Her winning secret? "I think I was a little closer to Kelly Ripa in the line than I was the last time," said Bernstein, who finished second in the 2008 inaugural event. The race was inspired by Kelly Ripa's daily sprints, usually in heels, as she tries to keep up with the demands of her co-hosting duties on "Live With Regis & Kelly.

In the beginning, there was the skirt, Nancy Drew.Next, dames started saturating television like tears soaking a hanky. "Remington Steele," "Moonlighting" and "Murder, She Wrote" all boasted Bettys solving crimes the big boys couldn't -- or wouldn't -- touch.Now, the big screen has gone dizzy over doll detectives with "V.I. Warshawski," a movie about a glam-gammed gumshoe who springs to work for "a dollar and a just cause." Her job includes computer hacking, a high-speed boat chase, getting beat up and shot at, kidnapping and murder.

Spikes, stilettos, high-heels. Mention them and the societally enlightened launch into discussions of podiatrists, pelvic displacement and human bondage. The fashionably attuned can't wait to get their feet into them and have some fun for a change.Heels are back in style -- not the professional plump pump that can work the courtroom or basketball court, but some high-flying contraptions that teeter on the edge of silliness.That's the point. Fashion is frivolous and fickle, and just when women are beginning to get comfortable with the idea of combat and work boots as appropriate for dress, the pranksters who drive the trends bring back those 3-inches-and-climbing glamour heels.

In Iron Crow Theatre's latest production, "Bad Panda," running through Saturday at Theatre Project , Katie O. Solomon plays Marion, a panda on the verge of motherhood with the other last panda on earth. That male panda falls in love with a gay crocodile. "The play is very witty and fast paced but more challenging is the fact that I am a panda," said Solomon, 24, who lives in Mount Washington, where she also grew up. Learning panda movements? Solomon did it. But she's always been devoted to the craft.

Nothing could be more middle-class than a cruise ship vacation. The telltale signs are all present: the women for whom decollete ceased to be advisable some years previously, the teenage girls teetering on high heels while chewing gum, the men wearing their caps at table, the "formal" dinner nights (must wear shoes), and, in the casual dining area, the plate piled high from the third trip to the buffet. Middle-class to the core, I enjoy it. So when Kathleen's parents decided to celebrate their turning eighty with a family cruise to Bermuda, twelve of us altogether, I signed up gladly.

There were football players in high heels, police officers in pumps, and students in spikes marching around campus on Wednesday, April 4, as Towson University hosted its third annual Walk a Mile In Her Shoes event.

The button-down gingham shirt was accented by a maroon paisley bow tie. Her loose-fitting black jeans slightly covered her black-and-white squared leather shoes. Felicia "Snoop" Pearson's nerd-chic ensemble, accented by geeky glasses, seemed almost red-carpet-ready when she exited Baltimore Circuit Court on Monday. But "The Wire" actress' duds were more likely a calculated legal move than a fashion statement. In fact, Pearson is among a growing list of celebrities who turn to stylists or high-end designers for spiffed-up makeovers when they land in court.

Bethany Shurer took one look at her drab graduation get-up and knew exactly what it needed — a flashy pair of shoes. The Stevenson University senior's lifeless black robe covered most of her body, leaving her feet as the only place for something sassy. So she added some sparkle: a pair of eye-catching Kenneth Cole rhinestone-studded platforms. She wouldn't just walk across the stage — in those metallic navy pumps, she would shine. "Everyone else was going to be wearing the same thing," said the 23-year-old, who lives in Forest Hill.

I wear heels just about every day. Most co-workers wouldn't know that, however, because I tend to walk around the office in my stocking feet, since wearing heels all day can be pretty painful. So I jumped at the chance to test shoes with the Insolia technology, an invention that only recently has hit U.S. stores, such as Nordstrom and Bloomingdale's. The creators of Insolia say they have found a way -- without padding or inserts -- to make wearing high heels feel like wearing flats. The technology is relatively inexpensive, said Michael Backler, the president of HBN Shoes, which markets the technology -- though he declined to say how inexpensive.

FRISCO, Texas — Someone told the girl about Rucker Park in Harlem, told her that all the best players gathered there for pickup games. Harlem was two train rides and a long walk from her neighborhood in Queens, but she had fallen in love with basketball — shooting hoops in the playground each afternoon until dark — and nothing could keep her from having a look. Taking money from her mother's purse, she announced that she was headed for the park, neglecting to mention which park.
