In the know



Oops, our camera failed!

We planned to print photos today of the best-dressed folks at Saturday's Art of Chocolate gala at the Marion Hatcher Center. But our film came back blank. If the photos had come out, you would have seen: Rebecca Howard wearing a floor-length, column black gown with sheer panels from hip to ankle; Charles Duchscher wearing a black-and-silver beaded blazer with satin lapels and marbled cowboy boots; and Kim Evans wearing a knee-length black and chocolate-brown houndstooth dress and black strappy sandals.

Slipper puts glasses on hold

Do you frequently misplace your eyeglasses? As a solution many women have resorted to hanging their glasses on jacket pockets, blouse necklines or even granny chains. Artist and former model Hannah Baldwin has created Glass Slippers - a pendant on a chain with a concealed slot that holds glasses. The pendants come in gold, silver and black onyx and sell for $25 to $30. For more information, see the Web site msbGlassSlippers.com or call (800) 538-2223.
