Even though Halloween has become synonymous with "sexy" and "trashy" - heck, there's even a naughty ladies' "Bert & Ernie" ensemble - you have a choice. And you can choose fashion and sophistication. There are plenty of options that will have you looking runway-ready, while remaining true to the holiday. We combed the racks at some of the region's top clothing boutiques, consignment shops, vintage troves and even a furrier for our "no costumes allowed" photo shoot. We were able to capture period charm from "Downton Abbey," "Boardwalk Empire" and "Mad Men," the futuristic feel of "Hunger Games" and the boho chic of "Girls.

For some, the streetcar meant more than a mode of transportation. It symbolized an era of city life. From the late 1800s to the 1960s, streetcars guided Baltimore's growth, carrying people from home to their jobs, the movies, malls and amusement parks. This weekend, they will carry people once again, if only a short ways. The Baltimore Streetcar Museum hosts its annual Tinsel Trolley this weekend and Dec. 18-19, offering 20-minute streetcar rides with Santa Claus along with its usual exhibitions.

Details goes Hollywood for February, with an entire issue devoted to tinsel talk. The investigative piece on Scientology and celebrity sheds little light on the cult itself, and less on the motives of actor-followers like John Travolta, Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman and Kirstie Alley.Demi Moore writes about the trials of carrying weighty gifts of jewelry from her husband: They "practically qualify me as an honorary Gabor," she says. And Samuel L. Jackson writes about how being famous means being mistaken for Laurence Fishburne.

AS CHRISTMAS DRAWS near, it's easy to be caught up in the shopping, last-minute cooking and general frenzy that the holiday season can bring. It might be difficult to remember the magic of Christmases gone by, when, as a child, your only worry was deciding which present to open first on Christmas morning. But one Carroll County resident needs only to look around his home during the holiday season to be reminded of a calmer, more relaxed time when holiday decorating and celebrations were revered and treated as sacred family traditions.

It's two weeks before Christmas and Sasha Cohen is nearly mistletoed out. "I feel like Santa Claus this season," America's greatest skating actress says. "I've been opening all the rinks." Whenever a monster evergreen has been lit, from New York to Dallas to San Diego, Cohen has been there, laced-up and luminous. Since the Olympics, she has been everywhere, it seems - partying at the Oscars and the Emmys, touring Japan, throwing out the first pitch at an Arizona Diamondbacks game, celebrity-styling for Modern Bride, making commercials, TV episodes, movies.

Summertime book reviews frequently take up the notion of escapism, of the "beach read," and what's usually recommended is a roundup of some thick yet short-chaptered thrillers or a few lightweight comic novels. But why not toss poetry into this sun-baked category? There are always new collections of poems strong enough in literary quality yet accessible to any open-minded reader that would make for perfect hot-day entertainment as well as (this is an extra added bonus, the verse equivalent of relish on your hot dog)

With the wattage of area holiday decorations approaching a crescendo, historic Waverly Mansion provided a welcome respite this week from a world seemingly filled with flickering electric icicles and fiber-optic snowman displays. The 18th-century house was adorned Monday in traditional holiday style for the annual Candlelight Tour, a one-day sneak peek into the mansion owned by two Maryland governors. Nary a string of lights nor a scrap of tinsel was on the pre-Revolutionary War-era home in Marriottsville.
