Teva Shares Fall As Q4 Adj. Profit Misses View, Outlook Disappoints

Israel-based generic drug maker Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. on Wednesday reported a loss for the fourth quarter that narrowed from last year as a decline in revenues was more than offset by lower costs and expenses. However, adjusted earnings per share missed analysts’ expectations, while revenues beat estimates. Teva provided its financial outlook for fiscal 2019 also below estimates.

Batsheva RTW Fall 2019

Batsheva Hay hosted a sort of theater piece to present her fall collection. While a few women were working at sewing machines, the models, including actress Christina Ricci and musician Melissa Auf der Maur, walked down the stairs of an empty retail location in SoHo after reading small excerpts of love songs at the microphone. They were dressed in frocks and separates that were inspired by “me being taken around the Salvation Army when I was a teenager,” the designer said before the show.
The brand’s signature prairie dresses, cut with high necklines and pouf shoulders trimmed in ruffles, were rendered this season in a range of fabrics — from red velvet and a shiny orange silk taffeta to a cloth printed with images of Holly Hobbie. The same motif also gave a retro, childlike feel to cropped pants with ruffled cuffs, which were matched with a floral top. A blue apron dress revealed a sweet Peter Pan collar, while a rose-shaped application embellished a ruffled frock crafted from a white and green striped cotton. Though the collection was heavy on Hay’s signature dresses, they were juxtaposed by a few separates and an outerwear style, a dark green velvet coat embellished

Derek Lam 10 Crosby RTW Fall 2019

Derek Lam 10 Crosby design director Shawn Reddy is feeling preppy for fall. He name-checked Ali MacGraw’s character in the 1970 movie “Love Story” as his seasonal muse. In the movie, MacGraw goes to Radcliffe College, once the sister school to the all-male Harvard. “It’s such a visual movie,” Reddy said during a walk-through.
The idea came through on shirting with a knit yoke and built-in scarf details that can be tied around the neck, and also with some tops with rugby strips cut on a bias that ran diagonally down the garment. Looser micro-check suiting, a new blazer shape for the season with a nipped waist silhouette, and new zipper and button details could be paired with one of the plaid puffer outerwear options. Each had a preppy vibe but were injected with a light design twist.
With fall comes the lead-up to winter events. Reddy offered up crew neck cotton tops with feathers cascading at the waistband and sequin wide-leg pants, a fun take on the signature pajama pants a Derek customer knows well. Here they were done in silver, black and rose gold.
Faux-fur accessories added a rich layer to the contemporary collection, with super soft options including trapper hats, gloves, oversize bags and

N.Hoolywood Men’s Fall 2019

Daisuke Obana has a knack of having his invited guests feel very included within his show space.
An all-white room with bright white fluorescent lighting panels along the floor, and clear acrylic chairs set the tone for the fall collection. With what seemed almost like a palate-cleanser, Obana this season offered an intimate peek at conquering his dislikes. Working in patterns such as checks and camouflage that have frustrated him in the past, Obana seemed to have finally conquered his demons with this solid effort. His clever deconstruction also continued with the use of hidden details such as soft leather jackets, which were in fact two-in-one detachable models.
The play on Christmas-like sweaters and the use of bright colors, though oversized in nature, made the proportions feel more controlled and realistic. The designer injected camouflage throughout, from coats and vests to pants, which he mixed with utility elements such as an army green elongated fleece jacket that made the lineup feel of-the-now with a less gimmicky vibe.
Obana has been in business for quite some time, often showing very themed collections — sometimes too literal — but this time, the offering felt fresh, with great stand-alone pieces, making this one of his most wearable collections

Yeohlee RTW Fall 2019

“Yeohlee throws herself a challenge,” the designer said of her namesake fall collection during a preview at her store. Never mind the mathematical or geometric undertones of her deceptively minimalist designs. She was speaking to the season’s sustainable arc, where she dived into years worth of archival fabric and inventory to create a wholly upcycled range.
Sustainability is arguably the most widely discussed issue facing the fashion industry today, and it’s become an umbrella term for a range of good practices. For Yeohlee Teng, it means endurance, and being able to reinvent old fabrics for the modern day. There were a host of standouts, including a neon day-glo fabric from 2003 cut into an athletic-leaning jacket and joggers, plum melange silk taffeta from 2008 rendered into languid pants cut on the bias, and silk duchess satin from the Nineties reimagined into a voluminous yet lightweight baseball jacket that maintained a great ballooning shape.
Cohesion was Teng’s biggest challenge, and she managed to unify looks with a sculptural and modernist hand that held a gender-ambiguous thread. Outerwear highlighted these elements best, and included a wide-neck coat with high-low hem that was actually one width of square fabric, and a regal black-and-silver duchess satin

Isabel Marant Étoile RTW Fall 2019

For her secondary label, Isabel Marant doubled down on comfort, considering what she would want to wrap herself up in when the weather turned chilly. A fuzzy plaid shirt thus became a poncho, its zip-up collar adjustable for extra warmth. An oversize, quilted vest, too, looked cozy — it had texture, in the form of braid patterns — and smart, as well, cinched at the waist with a leather belt. The designer was equipping her young, fashion-conscious customer with solid outerwear that doubled as a protective layer.
Another example came in the form of a thick brown leather jacket, like a pilot’s jacket from the last century, repurposed for a new era — the shoulders had Eighties-style extra puff. A pale purple sweatshirt was embellished with quilted shoulder patches, and an acid-washed jean jacket had a fuzzy wool collar.
For dressier occasions, she offered an elegant black lace dress, snug in all the right places for sexiness, and an extra ruffle for a touch of the romantic. Her peasant blouses had large sleeves and two ruffles on each shoulder. 
She kept her waists high and the sweaters chunky, for the most part. The collection was all about being in the comfort zone: the

Rodarte Designers Reveal L.A. Landmark Location for Fall 2019 Runway Show

Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy have revealed the venue for their upcoming fall 2019 runway show, which will be an L.A. homecoming for the duo.
They’ll be showing Feb. 5 at 2 p.m. at The Huntington Library and Gardens in their hometown of Pasadena, Calif. The landmark was established by Southern California pioneer and railroad tycoon Henry E. Huntington in 1920, first as a library for rare books, photographs and letters written by the likes of Chaucer, George Washington and Henry David Thoreau, and later as an art gallery for the family’s American and European art holdings including Thomas Gainsborough’s famous painting “The Blue Boy.” There are also 120 acres of botanical gardens, including a Japanese, Rose and Desert ones in which to hold an afternoon fashion show.
“We have dreamt of doing a show at The Huntington since we first started designing. Our grandmother and mother introduced us to The Huntington as children and we have been inspired by its beauty ever since,” the designers said. “We specifically drew inspiration from the gardens for our spring 2007 collection, and it will be amazing to see the fall 2019 collection presented in this location.”
The designers are partnering with JNSQ — short for

If You Fall in One of These 4 Categories, You Should Buy Postage Now

Every time I mention I need to buy stamps, someone always scoffs, “Who uses stamps anymore?”

But every time I go to the post office, I end up in a line six or eight deep.

Mailing stuff is still big business. But it’s about to get a little more expensive.

This month, prices are going up from 50 cents to 55 cents cents per stamp.

Penny Hoarders know what this change means: The best time to buy postage is right now.

Why You Should Buy Stamps This Week

Unless you’re looking for a special edition postage stamp, most stamps are now labeled “Forever” instead of with a monetary value; you can use them regardless of the fluctuating price of stamps.

On Sunday, Jan. 27, the price for those Forever stamps will increase 5 cents. Here are the mailing price changes you need to know:

  • Letters (1 oz.): 50 cents to 55 cents
  • Letters (metered 1 oz.): 47 cents to 50 cents
  • Small Priority flat-rate box: $ 7.20 to $ 7.90
  • Medium Priority flat-rate box: $ 13.65 to $ 14.35
  • Large Priority flat-rate box: $ 18.90 to $ 19.95
  • Large APO/FPO flat-rate box: $ 17.40 to $ 18.45
  • Regular flat-rate Priority envelope: $ 6.70 to $ 7.35
  • Legal flat-rate Priority envelope: $ 7.00 to $ 7.65
  • Padded flat-rate Priority envelope: $ 7.25 to $ 8.00

If you fall into one of these categories, you should probably get in line to buy stamps or Priority postage right now:

1.You Actually Send Letters

If you buy a book of 20 stamps this week, you’ll pay $ 10. Next week, a book of stamps will cost $ 11. Five cents per stamp doesn’t seem like much, but think about how many letters you mail in an average year. If it’s more than 20 — people who still pay rent by mail, sing it with me — it’s worth stocking up now and saving a buck per book.

2. You Sell on Etsy, eBay or Another Online Platform

If you sell anything online, you’ll probably see a small increase in the cost of mailing each package. A cent here or there? No big deal. But over the course of a year, the increase can mean hundreds in additional business costs.

Make plans now to adjust your prices to account for the postage increase. Then, buy whatever supplies you can before the price goes up on stamps or Priority flat-rate postage.

3. You’re Getting Married

There is a little good news — at least for those hearing wedding bells: The single-piece additional ounce price will be reduced from 21 cents to 15 cents. So a 2-ounce stamped letter, such as a typical wedding invitation, will cost less to mail, decreasing from 71 cents to 70 cents.

But you’re probably putting stamps on the invitation-response cards. And the save-the-dates. And all those thank-you cards you’re totally going to write within three months of the wedding.

I’m not saying you have to send all those items to have a fun wedding celebration. I’m just saying that if you plan to mail any of them, you’re about to pay a bit more.

4. You Want to Make Some Extra Cash

Did you know you can buy and sell unused postage stamps on eBay? Buy a bunch at 50 cents each now and sell them later as the price continues to increase. Bonus tip: Don’t just buy whatever stamp the guy behind the counter offers you. Ask for the cool stamps that collectors or letter-writing fanatics might be looking for later. Your profits may be small, but a small profit is way better than no profit.

What’s Up With All the Price Changes on Stamps? They’re Just Stamps

The price changes are actually more calculated than you might think.

In 2014, the U.S. Postal Service got permission to raise stamp prices by 3 cents (from 46 cents to 49 cents) for a two-year period. The hike was essentially a fundraiser for the Postal Service, which doesn’t receive any government funding — thus you still receive your mail during a government shutdown. Instead, it makes all its money off us mailing things.

Stamp prices are typically tied to the rate of inflation, so when the two-year special increase expired in spring of 2016, stamp prices dropped back to 47 cents — which was in accordance with the inflation rate.

This month’s increase is just another turn in the inflation game.

Christian Dada Men’s Fall 2019

Mansanori Morikawa created a strong collection charged with urban sartorial pieces and less of a nod to Eastern influences than in seasons past.
The show notes explained that the line, called Signal Noise, was influenced by a 1994 art happening, entitled “S/N by Dumb Type,” conceived by a Japanese artist collective that – through the piece – questioned discrimination and imagined a time devoid of borders and stereotypes. The performance’s aesthetic and political elements particularly inspired Morikawa for fall.
There was a coherence to this collection full of streamlined silhouettes for men and women, like the cinched black suit and jacket, brown velour trousers and bomber, and multicolored striped sweater over black velour pants.
This lineup was full of varied details, such as splayed cuffs, tape seams and winged motifs, and fabrics like a coated material appearing shiny; wool; leather, and cotton. Colors varied, too, from black and navy to mauve and teal.
What could have been clashing – the look, say, with a white turtleneck, multicolored, collage-like shirt, glossy gray trousers and long, zip-up gloves – coalesced.

Vetements’ Fall 2019 Show Was Inspired by Teenage Dirtbags and our Addiction to Smartphones

Despite having told numerous fashion outlets in 2017 that Vetements would be abandoning fashion shows because “shows have nothing to do with clothes anymore,” Vetements designer Demna Gvasalia is still sending fashion down the runway. On Thursday in Paris, the label presented its Fall 2019 …

LGN Men’s Fall 2019

Designer Louis-Gabriel Nouchi’s fall 2019 collection needed a bit of explaining. What was the link between silver lamé outerwear, boiler suits and safety jackets, pentagram prints and oversized plaid?
It turns out the inspiration for the collection was a mix between Norman Mailer’s 1983 novel “Ancient Evenings” about reincarnation within Egyptian spirituality and the film “River of Fundament,” directed by Matthew Bailey, which took Mailer’s concept and applied it to the fall of the automobile industry in Detroit.
“Choosing an Egyptian theme can be quite complicated because there is always the risk of it looking like a costume,” Nouchi said. It was all in the details: a belt buckle was shaped like a beetle, a key Egyptian symbol, while the stars referenced decorations on ancient tombs and a leopard-print skirt was a reinterpretation of a pharaoh’s wardrobe.
Mixed with workwear, the effect was puzzling. The safety jackets worn over tailoring looked a bit out of place.
Backstage, some pieces were more impressive close up. A sweater was created via a technique allowing the knit to alternate between two different kinds of thread, creating a pattern directly in the garment design. Two knitted suits, while a lot quieter on the runway than the silver lamé

Dsquared2 Men’s Fall 2019

In the Instagram era, experiences are becoming key to making a difference in the real, physical environment. While images and videos available on smartphones can help a brand spread its message, a proper event can guarantee guests will go back to their homes with special memories and emotions. This is what Dean and Dan Caten must have thought when they conceived the format of their fall runway show, with guests standing by the catwalk as at a music concert and bars serving drinks. And, indeed, the music was great — a mix of pop, dance and Madonna’s iconic songs. The thing is, people weren’t there for the soundtrack or the drinks. They were supposed to be there to see the clothes. Even if Dsquared2’s intentions were noble — offering a fun, entertaining and unconventional experience during fashion week — the result missed the mark, with several editors leaving before the end of the show because they couldn’t see a thing.
Those who managed to sneak in through the crowd witnessed a pop, rock ‘n’ roll, grungy, disco extravaganza. After presenting a pre-fall collection focused on chic, wearable pieces, the Caten brothers used their fall coed runway to send out a clear

Front Row at Prada Men’s Fall 2019

PRADA’S BRITS: British actor Callum Turner took in his first Prada show, although he said he had been to Milan a few times. “I love Milan and managed to see friends in a short amount of time,” he said, adding a few Italian words. Coming up for Turner are a BBC “conspiracy thriller” and his role as Frank Churchill in a new rendition of “Emma,” opposite Anya Taylor-Joy playing the titular heroine. “We need more Emma,” he joked about the latest cinematic version of the Jane Austen novel. Filming “in and around England” will start in May, directed by this “really cool American photographer and director Autumn de Wilde, who did Beck’s album and lots of iconic rock ‘n’ roll photos.”
British actor Will Poulter said he was in Milan just for the Prada show, although he did manage to squeeze in one Italian meal. “Yeah, we went to Pizza Express,” joked Turner, who was sitting nearby. The Brits never leave their sense of humor behind, do they? Poulter is currently playing Colin, a computer programmer, in “Black Mirror: Bandersnatch” on Netflix and will star in “Midsommar,” a film about a summer holiday gone wrong, which is due for release later this year.

Brunello Cucinelli 
Simone Lezzi/WWD

Designer: Brunello Cucinelli
Inspiration: The luxury label found the inspiration for its new collection in the elegance of the Fifties. Calling the lineup “Gentleman at Ease,” Cucinelli offered a relaxed take on classic tailoring. The brand, which this season enlarged its booth at Pitti Uomo, returned the focus to its wide offering of suits, which ranged from effortless-chic styles targeting the new generation of men to evening options. In keeping with this renewed attention on suits, Cucinelli recently introduced in key stores a made-to-measure program that enables shoppers to create customized tailoring styles while experiencing the brand’s Italian lifestyle in dedicated areas offering high-end facilities and services.
Key Styles: In the suiting range, while jackets were cut close to the body, Fifties-inspired high-waisted pants with double pleats were among a selection of wider, comfortable silhouettes. Fabrics spanned from traditional wools and cashmeres to flannels, corduroy and velvet. Knitwear took center stage with cozy crewneck and V-neck sweaters, sometimes embellished with sporty-chic tennis details that showed rich melange effects. The color palette focused on neutral tones of gray, blue and beige, enriched with accents of warm dark red and deep purple hues. — Alessandra Turra

Canali Men’s Fall 2019

After seasons of unveiling its collections at Milan Fashion Week, Canali made a comeback to Florence with an evening event hosted inside the prestigious Palazzo Antinori. This was a smart move for the brand, as opting for a presentation format managed to openly showcase the high-end quality of its men’s offering. In keeping with current trends, Canali refreshed its tailoring with a relaxed, leisurewear-inspired approach. Graphic urban jackets were crafted from luxury fabrics, while cashmere coats featured sporty details, including detachable nylon hoodies. Corduroy pants were matched with turtlenecks with an artisan feel and country-chic blazers, while the elegant attitude of pin-striped suits was tempered by the narrow coats peppered by macro houndstooth patterns. Cozy alpaca and mohair gave a cozy, warm feel to the overcoats, highlighting the collection’s overall sense of luxurious comfort.

Best Posts of 2018 – Fall, Back to School, and Affordable Watches

Last week we recognized the Best Affordable Style of 2018, focusing on the top products pumped out by the retail establishment. This week we’re taking a look back at the best (at least what WE consider the best) of what Dappered had to offer in 2018. Not trying to toot our own horn here. Consider this more of an exercise in recognizing what was popular with the Dappered readers, so we continue to create informative content in the New Year. And by the way, to those Dappered readers: thanks.


The Style-Centric Grown up’s Back to School Shopping List

As stated in the opening paragraph of the post, this really was just a shameless rationalization for shopping, but why should kids have all the fun during the back to school window? With a translation of common back to school items into what would equate for the stylish adult man, this made for a tempting shopping list that may or may not have shorted a few college fund contributions.


How to up your style in college without looking like you’re trying too hard

And speaking of back to school, this post truly was for the guy heading back to campus. With valuable information on how to upgrade the normal attire for a college environment, perhaps this post inspired a few guys to step up their game on the first day back in class.


Autumnal Temptation – The Best Looking New Fall Style Arrivals for Men

Although not back to school specific, there was plenty featured in the 2018 Autumnal Temptation round up that could work for a guy going back to school. It was also tempting for just about everyone else as well. Autumn truly is the most tempting time to spruce up one’s wardrobe, as so many more layers can be incorporated.


Best Looking Affordable Outerwear – Fall/Winter 2018

10 Alternatives to the J. Crew Nike Killshot Sneaker

Sneaker are an essential not only for back to school, but for the guy that is on his feet and walking a good amount during his day. One of the most prized sneakers in the men’s style arena is the Nike Killshot. It’s been no secret from day one that this site didn’t really get the hype. That inspired a post that featured 10 alternatives to the Killshot. If you experienced a bit of déjà vu, you weren’t going crazy. The post originally ran in 2017, but was so popular we updated it with new picks.


The 10 Best Looking Watches under $ 100

Finally, if you’re heading back to school, you’re likely on a budget, seeing how insane school debt is right now in the good ol’ US of A. So when there are quality style pieces that can be had for a smaller amount of cash, it’s likely appreciated. This post offered 10 watches, all at the time under the $ 100 mark.

Astrid Andersen Men’s Fall 2019

Andersen brought a Copenhagen chill to her collection, which unfolded in the vast outdoor courtyard of Broadgate Plaza, near Liverpool Street station. She certainly came prepared, placing little disposable glove warmers on each chair for guests, and sending out a lineup of cozy knits and plump fur coats — in addition to lots of pinstripes and hand-painted prints.
The designer said she wanted to fuse the idea of streetwear with classical tailoring and luxury fur, as the lines between catwalk and street have blurred beyond recognition.
She worked charcoal pinstripe fabric into karate-style suits, puffers and tracksuit bottoms sealed with reflective tape. Her long, swooshing pinstripe topcoats had a gangster-ish feel to them. That pairing of formal and sporty worked beautifully, although it remains to be seen what bank, law firm or judge will let those outfits through the door.
Andersen worked lots of color into the collection, too, via freeform, hand-painted prints on shirts and hoodies and a terrific lineup of knitwear, including cable-knit leggings for a cold January night, and boxy color-blocked sweaters in rich combinations including corn and mint green.
Color also came in the form of fat, luscious fur coats. They were long and silvery, hip-length and baby blue, or short

Places to visit this fall that have the best sweater weather


If you fancy traveling somewhere new this fall, but the idea of a cold skiing vacation or hot beach break doesn’t tickle your fancy, then maybe a cooler city with all year long sweater weather might be ideal for you. If you like cozy jumpers, boots, and jeans, then traveling somewhere where that’s your everyday outfit could be the perfect getaway. These are a few of the best places for you to visit this fall.

Portland, Maine

Portland is a beautiful peninsula full of beaches, lighthouses, and a perfect waterfront for fishing. There are plenty of attractions, restaurants, and things to do in Portland, as well as it having flawless sweater weather. The average fall temperature in Portland is in the low-30s, making it ideal if you fancy a getaway where you can live in sweaters, jumpers, and scarves.

Sa Pa, Vietnam

If you fancy somewhere slightly more exotic and further from home, Sa Pa grants the perfect weather for your fall vacation. Although, if sweater weather is your favorite kind of climate, you might want to visit Sa Pa in any season. With the highest temperatures of the year averaging at about 67°F in July, and the lowest being 48°F in January, it’s practically jumper and scarf weather all year round. It’s not just the climate that makes Sa Pa ideal, however. The town is one of the central market locations in the area and boasts incredible mountain views, trekking opportunities, and an exploration of traditional Vietnamese culture.

Salt Lake City, Utah

The capital city of Utah is one of the most picturesque cities in the United States. With a climate which averages at about 50°F in the fall, it’s the perfect place to bust out all of your favorite sweaters. It has a number of parks, including Liberty Park which spans over 100 acres, with a lake that has two islands in the middle of it. It is also home to a variety of bird species, making it perfect for nature lovers. Salt Lake City is also has a wide range of cultural and artistic attractions, such as museums, art galleries, music festivals, and conventions.

Kundasang, Malaysia

In the east of Malaysia resides a small resort town called Kundasang. Though the area has little in the way of attractions, it could be the perfect place for a lazy vacation. The temperate weather sticks at around 68°F, with temperatures not deviating much from 61°F to 75°F all year. There’s a World War II memorial and plenty of fresh vegetables, and also allows for a stunning view of Mount Kinabalu, not to mention the iconic cabbage roundabout, which is worth traveling to Malaysia for in itself!

There are plenty of places around the world which have chilly fall temperatures which are too cold for t-shirts but too warm for coats. Most of these reside in the United States, but if you fancy traveling further afield, many parts of Asia also have all year long sweater weather. It’s not just fall you have to limit your sweater wearing to!

Best places in the world to watch the leaves change for fall


The end of the summer is a sad time for many people. The days grow shorter, and the hot weather disappears, making days at the beach a thing of the past. However, while it’s okay to mourn the loss of summer, there are plenty of reasons to be excited about the changing seasons. Fall is a beautiful time of the year, not least because the leaves turn an impressive assortment of colors. Don’t agree? Maybe that’s because you’ve never seen it happen at these places before.

Great Smoky Mountains (United States)

Anywhere that’s full of trees is bound to be a great place to watch the leaves change color. If you’re looking to enjoy fall without leaving the United States, you might want to spend some time at the Great Smoky Mountains. Sat on the border of North Carolina and Tennessee, these mountains are home to all sorts, including magnolia, hickory and chestnut trees. It’s the most popular national park in the whole of the US, and a lot of these visitors come in the post-summer months. They know that all those leaves are worth seeing.

Amsterdam (The Netherlands)

People in The Netherlands care a lot about the planet. That’s why so many of them whizz around on bikes rather than driving everywhere. With that in mind, it’s unsurprising that the country – Amsterdam, in particular – makes such an excellent destination for people hoping to make the most of fall. Over a fifth of the capital is covered in greenery, with places like Amsterdam Forest offering acres of open woodland for all your leafy needs. You can gaze up at the vibrant colors while you dip your feet in the river – it’s pure bliss.

Kyoto (Japan)

While half of Japan is all about being up-to-date with technology, the other half loves nothing more than embracing nature. The traditional side of Japan is largely affiliated with the peace and tranquility that comes from being at one with Mother Earth. That’s why places like Kyoto have so many trees. Although the country is better known for the cherry blossoms that arrive in the spring, it’s fall foliage is also worth seeing with your own eyes. There are so many temple gardens filled with colorful trees here that you’ll be spoiled for choice when you arrive.

New England (United States)

It seems that there aren’t many places better suited for watching the leaves change color than New England. With states like Maine and Vermont offering maple trees that beam a brilliant red in the fall, New England is the epitome of what people often picture when they think about this time of year. Achieving this incredible color is by no means easy, though. The weather has to be just right during the summer for the vibrancy to shine through, with sunny days and cooler temperatures an essential ingredient. Luckily, as long as these conditions remain optimal, New England will offer you a sight like no other.

Fall might not be as warm and sunny as the summer, but it’s still a great time for enjoying nature. After all, the world never stops being beautiful.

These fall TV finales are game-changers

Several notable network series have ended their fall seasons and won’t return until early next year. Some of the so-called “fall finales” — a growing trend in network TV — were cliffhangers, while others (that’s you, “Riverdale”) continued their crazy storylines leading to God-knows-what. Here’s a look at some of the notable fall finales and…

European countries to visit in the fall


People always like to talk about the best places to go on vacation in the summer and winter, but what about the rest of the year. Fall might be that awkward time between sunning yourself on the beach and getting cozy by the fire, but it’s still a great time to take a break from work. Europe, in particular, has some incredible locations for this time of the year, and they’re ones you won’t want to miss out on.


This one should be pretty obvious. One of the biggest events to happen in the fall is Oktoberfest, a celebration that has its origins in Munich, Germany. Although many other countries like to celebrate the occasion with their own festivals, nowhere does it better than the home of Oktoberfest. Feel free to let go of your inhibitions as you drink as much as your body can handle, and then some. You might return home feeling worse for wear, but it’ll be a vacation you remember forever… maybe.


We’re not trying to say that a European vacation should be all about drinking. However, Italy is one of the best countries to visit in the fall, and the drinking opportunities are part of the reason why. The vineyards are thriving, and nothing says a relaxing vacation like watching the sun go down with a bottle of red or white. With temperatures beginning to drop by this time of the year, too, you won’t be stifling in the Italian heat as you enjoy your break. That makes it a great time to check out some of the country’s incredible landmarks. Pompeii, here we come.


Croatia has become something of a popular choice for people ever since “Game of Thrones” started filming there. While millions might be rushing there in the summer to make the most of the weather, though, they’re missing out on the great opportunities the fall provides. Although temperatures are lower, they’re still pretty warm for this time of the year. Plus, prices aren’t as high because less people are visiting the country. So, if you’ve always wanted to see Croatia’s incredible views, the fall is the best time to go.


If you’re a hiker, there’s nowhere we’d recommend more than Switzerland. Although the country might be famed for its winter skiing opportunities, the mountains are just as enjoyable in the fall. You’ll be glad you made the effort to trudge all the way to the top once you see the views available. There’s nothing quite like looking down from a mountain peak and realizing how small everything around you is.

What’s more, Switzerland has plenty to offer tourists outside of just somewhere to walk. Fans of rail travel will have a blast seeing the Swiss scenery from the comfort of the trains. Few countries have a rail network that runs quite as efficiently as Switzerland.

Seen somewhere you fancy checking out? Fall might seem like a dreary time of the year, what with the temperature dropping and the trees losing their leaves. However, as these countries prove, it’s just as wonderful a season as all the others.

Assorted Fab Finds for Fall and Winter

Party looks have started to filter through to brick-and-mortar and online stores. Here are some holiday looks that have worked well on my clients, with a few non-party items thrown in for good measure. Be sure to check out all the colours and extended size options.

1. Karl Lagerfeld Harlow Bootie

This bootie is NOT made in France despite the Karl Lagerfeld label and associations with high-end luxury brand Chanel. They are quite comfortable and look streamlined on the foot. Not great on a narrow ankle, but they fit an assortment of foot shapes. The embroidered version is festive for the holidays, and the dusty rose is unique.

2. Boden Agnes Fair Isle Sweater

A cuddly and classic Fair Isle in both cool and warmer shades has been a hit with some forum members. Despite the alpaca fibre content, the pullover is not scratchy. It has a streamlined fluid fit and is flattering on a range of body types. It looks great styled with a pencil skirt and trendy jeans. Lovely quality.

3. Eliza J Formal Flared Skirts

Flared skirts are an acquired Modern Classic taste because many tend to feel it’s too much skirt and adds bulk. But that’s the charm of the silhouette. These Eliza J darlings are winners every season, and the pattern assortment is versatile. They lay a lot more flat than you expect, are comfortable in the extreme if you enjoy defining the waist. They aren’t overly long and overwhelming. They work best on regular and long torsos who enjoy defining their waist. They can work with a short fitted untucked top to lengthen the waist. Or a buttoned-up short cardigan. Keep the look classic, or add a little unexpected to the skirt by combining it with sneakers, tough boots, a moto, or denim jacket.

4. Express Fold-Over Collar Puffer Jacket

This puffer is FABULOUS if you like an avant-garde fit. It is boxy and creates architectural drape. It’s like you bought it at COS. Some of my clients felt like they hit the jackpot with the look and loved it. Others felt like a gigantic marshmallow. The silhouette is an acquired taste so consider yourself warned. It’s extremely cosy and soft. Good for all neck lengths because the collar folds up and down. If I hadn’t already committed to my new short navy puffer from Boden because the quality and fit is GORGEOUS, I would have this in red.

5. JS Collections Soutache Sheath Dress

Oh my word. Where do I begin with how STUNNING my size US12 client with a larger bust looked in this dress. It’s forgiving of lumps and bumps, and a very elegant length. No shapewear needed. She’s going to finish off the look with leopard pumps and a bright red clutch to amp up the fun factor. It’s best on a rectangular or inverted triangle body type. Can work on an hourglass too.

6. London Fog Petite Faux-Fur-Trim Hooded Down Puffer Coat

One of our petite forum members recently reviewed this puffer in burgundy, and it looks smashing on her. Petite puffers with a streamlined fit and suitable arm length are hard to find, but this one fits the bill for a very cold Winter.

7. Frye Shane Tip Western Bootie

Western Wear is on trend, but cowboy boots are always in style making them a Trendy Classic. They always look current, flattering and right, and can be used in all sorts of outfits. If you’re a black boots wearer, these are a great way to refresh your black boot capsule. They’re comfortable, very well made, fit a variety of foot shapes, and look extremely sharp. They are pricey, but have a high longevity factor.

8. Madewell Delilah Mary Jane Pumps

The Mary Jane pumps are well made and comfortable. Best on a low and regular volume foot. Excellent on those who like low heels and a secure pump. The glitter does not come off the blush version. The surface of the glitter is hard, but the inside of the shoes is very soft. Good with or without hose. Looks like a Jimmy Choo, but at a fraction of the price. The pink glitter earned a place in my wardrobe and is my new party shoe. Dainty and delightful.

9. Rachel Roy Collection Piping Detail Side Slit Midi

This dress works well on a rectangle, inverted triangle and hourglass. It works best on a regular and longer torso, and wider shoulders or a larger bust (you need to fill out the top). The sleeves are long, but can be easily hemmed. The diagonal lines of the piping are magical at creating a vertical and streamlined effect. They create curves for a straighter figure, and flatten curves on a curvier figure. The fabric is substantial and relatively girdling. The length and swoosh of the skirt are elegant.

‘Greenleaf’ Season 3, Episode 9 Recap:  ”Things Fall Apart”

Okay, so there’s really not a lot going on in this episode. If you’re looking for a pick up from where we left off with last week’s episode, you won’t find it here.

Not only do we not see someone snatch Zora up by her collar and shake some sense into her, we don’t see her at all in this episode.

Nope, this one is all about Bishop (Keith James)! He’s feeling vulnerable and old (no shade).

The divorce papers have been delivered just as he’s preparing for his silver jubilee service and they have his head spinning. He doesn’t know if he wants to sign them and be done with it or hold off for a while just to see what could be.

It’s like those Facebook relationship statuses that read – “it’s complicated”.

Meanwhile he’s still staying with his good friend Percy (Richard Gant) who apparently has “in-home” services provided once a week from random women he’s paying to spend time with.

After one of those in-home services, Bishop returns to Percy’s home and walks into the kitchen where he finds a woman by the name of Teresa, dressed in a skin tight, provocative dress. In a round-about way she offers her services to Bishop and he politely declines.

After this encounter Bishop has a conversation with Percy where Percy reveals he’s envious of Bishop and what he has going on with Rochelle (Letoya Luckett).

She’s a young, attractive woman who wants Bishop with no payments involved….yet, but Bishop continues to give her the cold shoulder.

This conversation gets Bishop thinking about what a woman like Rochelle might really want with him. So, he asks her. He wants to know her angle.

Why does someone like you love someone like me? It’s a valid question, especially with Lady Mae (Lynn Whitfield) and Grace (Merle Dandridge) constantly in his ear about how much they don’t trust her.

In true Rochelle fashion she answers with a couple of manipulative tears shed while she tells him that she’s tired of being suspected of being up to no good.

She tells him to check his account status that she helped him set up to get out of the IRS debt He checks it and sees that he’s already doubled the money he’s invested with her. After that, he promises to never doubt or question her intentions again.

He’s also trying to be a goof granddad to the one granddaughter he might be able to help. He goes to Sophia (Desiree Ross) to provide some comforting words of wisdom in her time of displacement.

Bishop asks Sophia to show up in church on Sunday and she does. But, her attendance still doesn’t change the fact that she feels completely disconnected from God.

Bishop also carves out the time to visit with Charity and baby Nathan. He can see something’s troubling Charity so he talks with her and finds out that she’s jealous of Kevin (Tye White) and Aaron’s (Aaron Geoffries) relationship. They’re making plans to be together indefinitely and she’s still searching for her happy ending.

Bishop also makes amends with his old friend Lionel (Tim Reid), Aaron’s father, after finding out he’s dying of pancreatic cancer. He goes to visit with Lionel at what looks to be some sort of assisted living or hospice facility. Lionel apologizes to Bishop for his affair with Mae and Bishop accepts his apology.

In the end, Bishop signs the divorce papers and brings the documents directly to Mae’s office where she signs them too. The papers will be mailed to Bishop’s attorney and… who knows where they go from here. But, I have a strange feeling that Bishop’s future plans will include a lot more of Rochelle.

5 English-Dubbed Anime to Watch This Fall 2018

It’s finally fall, which means new anime releases, and we aren’t just talking about subs but also English-dubbed anime. Several streaming services have released their dub lineup, and we couldn’t be more excited by their selections (including the decision to dub the best anime of 2017). Here are five English-dubbed anime to watch this fall.

Tada Never Falls in Love

  • Premiere date: September 30
  • Studio: Doga Kobo
  • Genre(s): Comedy, Romance, Slice of Life
  • Where to watch: HiDive

Earlier this fall, Sentai Filmworks announced that the romantic comedy Tada Never Falls in Love‘s English adaptation would air on HiDive. The anime follows Mitsuyoshi Tada, a boy who has never fallen in love. But that’s about to change. While taking pictures of the cherry blossoms in bloom, Tada meets Teresa Wagner, a transfer student from the European country of Larsenburg.

Upon arriving in Japan, Teresa gets separated from her travel companion. So, Tada helps her out and brings her to his grandfather’s coffee shop. However, their story doesn’t end there. They unexpectedly continue to run into each other — and even end up at the same school.

But it’s after Teresa joins Tada’s Photography Club that the two begin spending even more time together, igniting a spark between them. Throughout the series, viewers see how Teresa and Tada navigate the roller coaster ride that is high school and, of course, the ups and downs of young love.

Tokyo Ghoul:re (Season 2)

  • Premiere date: October 16
  • Studio: Studio Pierrot and Pierrot Plus
  • Genre(s): Action, Drama, Horror, Mystery, Psychological, Seinen, Supernatural
  • Where to watch: Funimation

The dark fantasy drama Tokyo Ghoul:re continues in Season 2. The series left off with a dead Quinx Squad member — whose body is mysteriously missing from the rest of the deceased. But more importantly, in the final episode, a cold-hearted and sadistic personality takes over young Ken Kaneki‘s body.

The subtitled trailer for the upcoming season revealed that several old and new characters will join the fight between the Ghouls and CCG. It also appears that Tokyo Ghoul:re will be the final season, bringing a close to Ken Kaneki’s story. What does this mean exactly? Fans will find out when the series returns this fall. But if the manga’s to be believed, anime fans are in for an action-packed season.

Fairy Tail (Final Season)

  • Premiere date: October 29
  • Studio: A-1 Pictures and Bridge
  • Genre(s):  Action, Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy, Magic, Shounen
  • Where to watch: Funimation

Another long-running series comes to an end, allegedly. The supposed final season of Fairy Tail will air its English version this fall on Funimation. The anime series follows the exploits of Fairy Tail, a mage guild that has earned quite a reputation for itself.

The final season will focus on Natsu and Lucy‘s search for their former teammates to convince them to rejoin the guild. However, this is easier said than done. The Spriggan 12, a group of god-like mages, will test the guild in unbelievable ways. Their epic clashes, along with the series’ comedic scenes, will undoubtedly entertain fans.

No one wants to see Fairy Tail come to an end. But if the final chapter is as long as the previous seasons, then the end is definitely far off. Also, let’s not forget that there are plans to adapt Fairy Tail: 100 Years Quest into an anime. The story of the infamous guild might never truly come to an end.

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime

  • Premiere date: October 22
  • Studio: 8bit
  • Genre(s): Fantasy, Shounen
  • Where to watch: Funimation

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slimeby author Fuse and artist Mitz Vah, started out as a light novel on the user-generated publishing site, “Shōsetsuka ni Narō” (Let’s Become Novelists) between 2013 and 2016. It went on to receive a manga adaptation, and the anime will air this fall.

The shōnen anime follows Satoru Mikami, a lonely 37-year-old man stuck in a dead-end job and unhappy with his average life. He’s also never had a girlfriend. And things only get worse when he dies at the hands of a robber and finds himself in a fantasy world — as a slime.

Freed from his former boring life, Satoru starts his life-changing journey in this new realm as a monster with special abilities. But not before setting off a chain of events that will change this new world forever.

Made in Abyss

  • Premiere date: October 23
  • Studio: Kinema Citrus
  • Genre(s): Sci-Fi, Adventure, Mystery, Drama, Fantasy
  • Where to watch: HiDive

HiDive will launch the English adaptation of acclaimed anime series Made in Abyss this fall. Finally, English dub fans will discover why this adventure series is the best anime of 2017.

The series follows Riko, a young orphan girl who lives near the edge of the Abyss, a colossal, unexplored pit. The Abyss contains many hidden relics and treasures called Artifacts. But it’s dangerous to dive into it. Those who do take the plunge succumb to the “Curse of the Abyss” on their way back up. The curse causes a range of problems from nausea to madness — and even death. But that doesn’t stop Riko.

On her way down into the Abyss, she meets Reg, a robot boy who decides to join Riko on her journey. Accompanied by her new friend, and carrying a note from her mother, Riko decides to go deeper, regardless of the danger that awaits her.

Fall & Winter Footwear for Midi Skirts and Dresses

There were questions on the forum recently about what type of footwear to wear with midi skirts and dresses for Fall and Winter. There are many, many options across flats and heels and the footwear you choose will depend on how dressy you want to look, and how much you want to elongate your leg line. The higher the heels, the longer the leg line. Personally, I choose flat and very low heels (up to an inch and a half in height).

Here’s my current collection of Fall and Winter midi skirts and dresses. The voluminous olive COS dress is a little longer on me, but not knee-covering. It’s not a true midi because of the short front, but the sides and back are longer so I treat it like a midi. The red floral dresses are knee-covering.

Here’s my assortment of Fall & Winter footwear that I wear with the above skirts and dresses. I sport sheer black hose, nude-for-me-hose and black micro fishnets with the footwear. Sometimes I wear socks with the tall boots instead of hose. There are high-shaft booties with a sleek ankle fit. Western shooties that are extremely tailored on the foot. Refined oxfords, ankle strap pumps, and classic ink blue tailored knee-high boots. TAILORED footwear is my preference. Coincidentally, all shoes have a low heel.

If you don’t get very cold feet like I do, you can wear some of the more open footwear styles I wore with warm-weather midis all Summer long. Leave off the hosiery and socks. Here are my Summer midi dresses and skirts with the shoes that I wore with them. Pointy-toe ballet flats, classic sandals, loafers, mules and white sneakers. All of the shoes here are flat.

I don’t like to wear boots that gape at the ankle or calf with midis. The fit MUST be sleek. I wear a lot of light-coloured footwear because it bookends my blonde hair and looks crisp. I also enjoy some darks, metallics and brights to change things up. Or wearing white footwear with sheer black hose to create a graphic contrast. It works well when the midis are dark, which all my Fall and Winter midis are.

I’d love to get more midis because my outfit happiness factor is through the roof when I wear them. Hands down they are my favourite item to wear in 2018 across the seasons. White jeans and fun pants are a close second.

Recording a phone call without the consent of all parties on the line is a violation of California’s Invasion of Privacy Act.

Class members include those who made or received calls between March 1, 2016, and Sept. 20, 2017, and were not informed the call would be recorded.

Each class member is eligible to receive an estimated $ 150 per call.

Behr DeckOver Resurfacer

If you had barely done your deck over with Behr DeckOver resurfacer when the premium stain product began deteriorating, you could be eligible for a portion of a class-action settlement.

In the lawsuit, consumers said they paid more for Behr DeckOver because marketing materials promoted a longer-lasting product that required less upkeep compared to similar staining products.

Plaintiffs claim the resurfacer began to deteriorate just a few months after application.

Customers who bought or used the Behr DeckOver resurfacer stain between Sept. 1, 2012, and June 27, 2018, are eligible.

Behr admits no wrongdoing, but has agreed to pay class members who can provide proof of purchase. They will receive a refund for the DeckOver they purchased and for any repairs to the deck.

The amount per class member varies.

The deadline to file for a refund and any reimbursement for repairs is Feb. 27, 2019.

Taste of Nature Half-Empty Candy Boxes

Did you buy Cookie Dough Bites, Muddy Bears, Hello Kitty Treats or other packaged candy products from Taste of Nature Inc.? If so, you could be eligible for a portion of a slack-fill class-action settlement.

The lawsuit alleged some of the candy products were packaged in oversized cardboard containers that included an unlawful amount of empty space. Taste of Nature admitted no wrongdoing, but agreed to the settlement.

If you purchased any Taste of Nature candies stored in cardboard boxes between Jan. 1, 2013, and June 18, 2018, you could receive up to $ 12.50 per household.

Class members are divided into two tiers as follows:

3 Day Blinds allegedly violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) by sending unsolicited marketing texts to cell phones from Oct. 27, 2013, to July 13, 2018.

Although 3 Day Blinds admitted no wrongdoing, the company agreed to comply with TCPA regulations and settle the lawsuit.

Class members include those who “received at least one text message advertisement on their cellular phone from, on behalf of or promoting 3 Day Blinds or its merchandise and did not provide 3 Day Blinds their consent to receive such messages.”

Each eligible claimant will need to provide a claim ID number and PIN number from the notice or the number of the cell phone that received the message.

Claims must be filed by Oct. 9, 2018.

TransPerfect Employee Data Breach

Current and former TransPerfect employees may be eligible for free identity theft protection and reimbursement because of a class-action settlement resulting from an alleged data breach.

TransPerfect admitted no wrongdoing but agreed to provide reimbursement and identity theft protection services through Experian for three years to class members.

Class members include “all current and former TransPerfect employees in the United States whose Form W-2 data and/or payroll information was compromised as a result of the data breach.”

Class members can receive Experian’s three-bureau credit monitoring and up to $ 4,000 reimbursement for costs related to the data breach.

American Airlines Checked-Bag Fee

If you flew American Airlines any time between July 13, 2013, and June 7, 2018, you could be eligible for a cash refund.

American Airlines travelers who were charged checked baggage fees at odds with their confirmation email or the company’s baggage fee policies at the time could receive a refund between $ 18.75 and $ 200 plus interest for each mischarged fee.

A 100% refund will go to those who paid fees inconsistent with American Airlines policies; a 75 %refund is available to those who paid fees inconsistent with their confirmation emails.

Claims will be accepted through the Oct. 19, 2018, deadline.

Trans-Pacific Airlines Price-Fixing

If you bought a plane ticket between Jan. 1, 2000, and Dec. 1, 2016, for a flight that began in the U.S. and flew to Asia or Oceania, you could be eligible for a portion of a $ 50 million class-action settlement.

In 2015, eight airlines agreed to pay almost $ 40 million to settle the Transpacific Passenger Air Transportation antitrust class-action lawsuit, including Air France, Cathay Pacific, Japan Airlines, Malaysia Airlines, Qantas, Singapore Airlines, Thai Airways and Vietnam Airlines.

More recently, Air New Zealand, China Airlines, EVA Air and Philippine Airlines have agreed to settle the class-action lawsuit.

These four airlines have agreed to pay $ 49.9 million, with EVA agreeing to pay $ 21 million and China Airlines paying $ 19.5 million to bring the litigation to a close.

(All Nippon Airways remains the sole airline that has not yet agreed to settle the suit.)

Defendants in the lawsuit allegedly conspired to increase the costs of airfare and surcharges, artificially inflating their profits.

Class members include those who purchased flights from Air New Zealand, China Airlines, EVA Air or Philippine Airlines from Jan. 1, 2000, to Dec. 1, 2016. The flights must have included a segment that originated in the U.S. and flew to Asia or Oceania.

Class members are eligible to collect $ 8.50 per eligible ticket claimed.

Outfit Formula: Fall Leopard Topper

We see animal print every season, but this year it’s on steroids. The plush and furry leopard coat or jacket is a Trendy Classic with a high longevity factor, although it’s having a fashion moment in 2018. One of countless ways to wear animal print, the leopard topper makes a loud and strong statement. It’s an acquired taste and one I enjoy seeing because it reminds me of the ‘60s and ‘70s (a few of my favourite fashion eras).

Here are four ways to wear a leopard topper with neutrals that are easy to pull together. The leopard prints are earth-toned, but feel free to create a similar look with leopard prints in other neutrals or non-neutrals.

1. Stripes & Jeans

Leopard print and stripes are classic patterns that work well together, especially when the palette of the patterns are similar. The repetition of the black in the leopard print and stripe creates a cohesive statement. It’s further complemented with black footwear. Tucking or semi-tucking a top to showcase a high rise is a trendy statement, but you can leave the top untucked. Wear full-length or cropped jeans in a silhouette of your choice.

2. Pattern-Mixed

This outfit takes pattern mixing a step further and is not for everyone. It combines the leopard print and stripe we saw in the first example, and adds a floral. The black across all three patterns AND the footwear unites the items, gives the eye a chance to rest, and creates a combination that is just cohesive enough. The tucked top, shorter coat and heels elongate the silhouette.

The remarkable part about this outfit is how it combines four Modern Classics to create a funky, arty, chic and creative vibe. It’s all about HOW you put items together that makes the difference.

3. Column of Colour

Columns of colour are an easy go-to way to create a long lean line and calm down the hectic pattern of a topper. Here, the column is black, but it can be just about any colour. It’s nice to see a skirt in the mix, but jeans and pants work as well. The topper is more of a jacket, which is better than a coat. That way you don’t need to remove the jacket indoors, which would take the punch out of the look.

4. High-Waisted Jeans & Black

Combine a high-waisted pair of full-length or cropped jeans with a tucked or semi-tucked top. Repeat the black in the shoes. Layer the leopard top over the lot and Bob’s your uncle, it’s that easy. Add jewelley, bag, watch, headgear and eyewear as desired.

Apparis Margot Faux Fur Coat

I bought a new leopard coat from Boden which is not as high contrast as the ones you see here. I can easily put the first look together, which appeals to me most since I adore the pattern mix. I have options across blue, faded blue and black jeans. I’ll change the footwear to white, add pearls, and either a light blue or tomato red bag to make the outfit more to my taste. I adore the rendition with the floral skirt, and would like to add something like that to my wardrobe too. In the meantime, here are the exact items from my wardrobe to create the look.
