The neat little cocktail dress is back to stir things up for the holidays with a decidedly modern twist. For the first time in years, glitz has given way to low-key glamour in this season's ladylike satin sheath.Undeniably seductive in all its incarnations, it still retains a sense of refinement. Inspired by women of great influential style like Jackie Kennedy and Audrey Hepburn, the old sleeveless sheath continues to have staying power. Modern executions, however, don't scream retro. Designer Donna Karan recently dubbed the sheath "the foundation of dressing -- the new bodysuit."

There were giants in those days. And some of them were only five feet tall. With her wide serge sleeves rolled brazenly beyond her elbows and a shiny baton in each hand, she stood at the edge of the St. Bernardine's School stage in West Baltimore in the spring of 1950, and - indifferent to our rehearsal fatigue - narrowed her eyes under the starched white headband and challenged us for the umpteenth time: "Again!" Once more we twirled our batons in sync three times, then threw them in the air and … up, up … down, down … thump, thump, thump, thump.

NEW RUSSIA, N.Y. - To four teen-agers from the suburbs, Split Rock Falls was a magical place - cool water rushing between the granite walls of a mountain ravine, forming pools for hours of lazy summertime swimming. On Tuesday afternoon, the four men - Adam Cohen, 19; Jonah Richman, 18; Jordan Satin, 19; and David Altschuler, 18 - returned to their favorite childhood summer haunt to find it engorged by a summer of heavy rain. By the end of the day, all four men, each an experienced swimmer, was dead, drowned in the waters they knew well.

Coats, like everything else in fashion, have been caught up in the craze for changing fabrics, categories and uses.BTC Once satin, velvet, lace and lame were strictly for evening, but now clothes made of or trimmed in any of these voluptuous fabrics are considered appropriate for day as well as night.

Say "Poconos" and for many people, the word "gaudy" almost automatically comes to mind. It is, after all, the place where Morris Wilkins invented and installed the world's first heart-shaped tub in 1963. The Pennsylvania resort area is also a place known as the "honeymoon capital of the world," where champagne glass-shaped spas are sometimes the prelude -- or finale, depending on your inclination -- to a night of romance. And for some odd reason, it's a place that seems to bring to mind sappy family-themed resorts that offer never-ending games of pinochle and shuffleboard.

Younger men cower in the doorway of the lingerie store, but 74-year-old Chester Taplette practically gallops across the leopard-print carpet. He's been staking out this Frederick's of Hollywood in Glen Burnie's Marley Station Mall for weeks now, "scheming," he says, about which lacy item to buy for his Annie on their 48th Valentine's Day as husband and wife. And because Annie has been his partner in every decision for nearly half a century now, why would he exclude her from this one? The 67-year-old follows a few steps behind her husband, her head swaddled in a scarf to conceal the curlers in her hair.
