With pride outfits, there’s no better way to express your pride than to add a pop of color with a rainbow flag or other pride-themed clothing items.

A full rainbow look is not necessary at all, but these smaller fun items can be mixed into an outfit for that extra splash of pride. Whatever you choose for your Pride outfit, make sure it’s something that reflects who you are comfortable being – after all, Pride isn’t just about showing love for the LGBTQ+ community but celebrating individuality as well!

If you’re celebrating Pride this year, you’re gonna want to make sure your whole look is as fabulous and fierce as can be. A great way to show off your festive pride vibe starts with the perfect hairstyle. Give yourself an empowering boost by adding some color to the mix — and don’t forget the glitz either! Pick a couple of bright hues swap out your regular elastic bands for rainbow scrunchies and incorporate any other sparkly statement pieces you have. Then it’s time to style it just right with a killer ‘do that puts a modern spin on classic updos. Go super high or strike a balance between polished and playful. No matter what, you’ll be standing tall in style.

Finish off the look with Pride-themed jewelry and shoes.

Accessorizing your Pride look is the perfect way to top off a unique and stylish ensemble. Designers like Zara, ASOS and Maya Magal offer a range of Pride-themed jewelry, from earrings to necklaces and pins. Colourful beaded bracelets and rings can make for a simple but bold statement. If you want to go full-on glamorous, add some stunning glittery ear cuffs! Meanwhile, for your feet, everything from rainbow platform sandals to classic combat boots are always a popular choice. No matter which pieces you select, keeping yourself accessorised with some Pride-inspired items will guarantee that yours is the most eye catching outfit in town!

With these tips in mind, you’re well on your way to putting together an outfit that will let you proudly represent who you are at Pride. No matter what style you choose, make sure it expresses who you are and makes you feel confident. After all, Pride is a time to celebrate diversity, so be proud of who you are and show the world exactly what that means to you.

The Perfect Travel and Summer Sandal

Published

on

Ipanema sandals are based in Brazil, and the sandal is named after one of the most famous beaches worldwide. Ipanema sandals are made with a durable Flexpand 100% recyclable plastic and use at least 30% recycled materials, while 99% of all factory waste is recycled or reused.

I Turkey this summer. Last year I really needed a sandal that looked great but handled well in water. Have you ever notice that a lot of summer shoes slip and slide when it rains? Also the beaches of the Mediterian  They take up no room in suitcase or a purse, are incredibly light being that they are all made of rubber. It feels like you are wearing nothing at all, yet are sturdy. These are perfect and you will not need another pair of sandals for anything.

I got the Ipanema Women’s Class Edge Glow Sandals ($32). The Ipanema Shimmer sandals are so soft, and feel great. They are silent when you walk in them, with no noise on the ground and no noise of anything hitting your foot. They also have a section on top that connects to the band around your ankle; this is the shimmer part. The strap is adjustable and o nce adjusted you do not need to undo it each time, making them very easy to slip on since the material is so stretchy.

I will definitely be ordering more.

Cabaret

M is for the. . . 

Published

on

Many ways you can show your mother, or the mother of your children, or anyone who is like a mother to you, just how much you appreciate and love them. Here are a few suggestions that will make you the hero of Mother’s Day! 

Back by popular demand is Jessica Sherr in her sold-out one-woman show entitled Bette Davis Ain’t for Sissies.  Sherr is a joy to watch as she reveals faces of this legendary actress you’ve never seen—her disappointments, her sorrows. 

Her characterization is so spot on that you’ll want to hug her when Bette is hurt and cheer for her when she’s on top of the world. Sherr’s ability to convey the mercurial nature of this iconic star is a marvel to behold.   

Don’t miss her this time around—it’s a real tour de force performance and one every mother will love. Sherr will be performing this well-written and gorgeously performed piece at the Triad on West 72nd Street on May 15 only.   If you’re in a sentimental mood this year, you’re invited to an Unveiling of The Baby Promise, An Elegant Collection of Mother’s Promise Rings, by Shana Farr on Thursday, May 9th from 5 – 7 pm at The Players, 16 Gramercy Park South. You may recognize Shana from her many cabaret appearances both here and abroad. Not only is she an accomplished actress and singer, but a mother and accomplished jewelry designer as well.   

Shana and Austin

What is the Baby Promise? It’s a vow she wrote when her son, Austin, was born and it lovingly expresses what every mother wishes for her child, and for herself, but never fully articulates. The complete version is available in a book she wrote of the same name, featuring artwork by–who else?–Austin. The Baby Promise Ring is a reminder of that sacred bond between a mother and child, exquisitely executed and available through Amazon.  Check it out at Thebabypromise.com.   

The ring is the quintessential way to express gratitude to the mother of your children; it comes with a copy of the book and is a perfect gift for any expectant mother.   

John Bolton

John Bolton

And if the lady you wish to honor is a fan of road trips, take her to the Bucks County Playhouse in Doylestown, PA for Noises Off, starring John Bolton.  It’s a quick ride from New York by car, with lots of interesting see there, like the Hammerstein home Highland Farms, or the shops in nearby Lambertville. Lots of fresh produce is available from roadside farmers. Or go in the other direction up to the Goodspeed Opera House in Connecticut, about two hours from the city. There you’ll have your choice of The Mystery of Edwin Drood starring Lenny Wolpe or A Complicated Woman with Klea Blackhurst.  You can’t miss! 

And if you insist on staying close to home, Lucky Stiff  by Flaherty & Ahrens is being brought to us by J2 Spotlight performing on West 45th Street. You can take her on Mother’s Day for the 3 pm matinee.    

As for me, my son and I play to celebrate by singing along to our favorite Broadway CDs while we play Scrabble. I just hope he lets me win at least once.

Bonnie Comley and Lelie Ware

Founded in 2021 by Lesley Ware, this Black-owned and women-run small business carries small-batch, socially conscious, up-cycled, and locally-made wearables and gifts. A2W curates an environment of creativity, acceptance, and collaboration within a dynamic retail setting that showcases the work of artists, designers, and creative visionaries.

It challenges the fashion industry to create an alternative to current business models and the global appetite for consumption and asks viewers to question dress codes like the current policing of women in political office.
