Philadelphia--You expect to see scads of sequins at a Hollywood premiere, a Las Vegas-type review, a formal affair. But in the audience at a rap and R&B concert?You better believe it.Sporting flashy sequins is the fad of the moment for the young and the hip, who are wearing the shiny discs on casual wear and sportswear. This trend is concentrated in a few East Coast cities for now, Philadelphia, Washington and New York, but expect it to spread as fall music videos emerge, many of which will reportedly feature rap artists with various ensembles adorned with sequins.

Late Monday night, I was standing in M&T Bank Stadium with my family, celebrating the Ravens' win over the Cincinnati Bengals. Less than 24 hours later, I found myself sitting in Lincoln Center for the second half of New York City Fashion Week. It's been quite the long, but fun, day! Operating on approximately four hours of sleep, I boarded the early train out of Baltimore's Penn Station and headed to New York with my coffee and itinerary in hand.  The train ride to New York City is easy, and I was joined by others headed for the Big Apple; laptops were brought out and early conference calls were taken.

Back in Branson, Mo., the guitar players are tuning up. The cash registers are ringing. The smell of barbecue is floating through restaurant parking lots. So what am I doing outside of town in the woods? Riding a bike and enjoying the silence. Think of Branson and you're likely to conjure up an image of sequins-spangled country stars and water-slide-riding children. But there's another side to the Ozarks fun capital. After you've seen the shows, ridden the bumper boats, shopped the outlet malls and eaten your way to a larger belt size, why not get out and enjoy the wilderness that makes this part of southern Missouri attractive?

Sequins used to be seen in all the best places -- petticoated pouf dresses, ball gowns, tourniquet-tight stretch dresses posing on stools at chic hotel bars.But these days, sequins do most of their gleaming on oversized sweat shirts in malls. Andfashion is dressing down.The emphasis is on simple shapes as bare of glitter as trees are of summer leaves.Many pieces take their cues from tanks, tunics, jackets and pants. They are elevated to special-occasion status by the luster of silk charmeuse, silver-shot knit or cashmere and velvet.

Not for them tasteful green swags and tree trims.So this season, take a joyful lesson from the youngsters and go for the glitter. Holiday party dressing is for the moment, not a lifetime investment.

That's not to say you should abandon that little black dress, just drench it in some holiday punch.Here are some glittering ideas for the season:* Sequins are this year's hot jewels.

Stay away from one thing this prom season: Pink. That is, unless you're wearing a ballerina-inspired dress.Besides this stipulation, everything else is in."It's so eclectic," said Karen Tina Harrison, the fashion and beauty editor of Your Prom magazine.This "anything goes" attitude means girls will be wearing strapless sequined dresses with slits, flapper styles with fringes, fairy tale-inspired ruffled gowns, and tank dresses with feather boa hems. An upcoming Seventeen magazine fashion show will even match motorcycle jackets and boots with prom dresses.

Professional interrogators know how to crack a witness with relentless questioning in a frigid, isolated warehouse illuminated by a swinging bare bulb. But I may have inadvertently discovered an easier method for breaking witnesses -- one that is absolutely free of charge to the U.S. Department of Spy-Squeezing. Just send them to watch a weekend-long dance competition in Bel Air. I attended such an event last weekend and found that at the conclusion, my state of mind was not unlike that of a tortured prisoner of war. I was shell-shocked by the sequins.

Fashion designer Lindsay Raspi never took a sewing lesson. She taught herself to sew because she had to alter every bit of clothing she bought. "I just got tired of paying an extra $30 or $40 to get something to fit," says Raspi, who is 5 feet 1 inch tall and a size 0. "From that I realized if I can hem a pair of pants, I can make a skirt."

In this summer of espadrilles, oversized sun shades and sequined tops and bags, the most popular fashion trend may be peasant and circle skirts. Full of flair and energy, peasant and circle skirts are very comfortable, exhibit lots of style and can be worn for almost any occasion -- from a picnic at the beach to church on Sunday or even a casual Friday at the office. Some women dress them up with a stylish summer blazer or dress them down with a tank and flip-flops. "They are so loose and comfy," says April Sallah, 38, of Baltimore.

A "Way Back When" article in yesterday's Today section misspelled the name of Civil War Union Gen. Felix Agnus.The Sun regrets the errors.It's that time of the year when a barking dog late at night is listened to a little more closely than usual.Eerie shadows give a start and the mere rattling of shutters by the wind forces the mind to race ahead and contemplate things that go bump in the night.It's Halloween, that time of the year when regiments of costumed ghosts, goblins, witches and Frankensteins take to the streets to go trick or treating or crowd into church halls for parties.
