RETRO T-SHIRTS MAKE COMEBACK

NEW YORK - Call it a T warp. Walk into most trendy boutiques these days and you'll see retro T-shirts featuring cartoons, characters and rock bands that were favorites decades ago.

Tweety, the Looney Tunes bird, flew into Los Angeles-based Kitson and New York-based Scoop on T-shirts from And Cake, Cosmosfact and Junk Food, on cashmere sweaters from Cake Couture and Raw 7, and on Delman ballet-style shoes. Shoshonna designed a Tweety bikini.

A Bewitched shirt, with "I am a witch" printed across the chest and punctuated with a smiling witch, looks like the one worn by Nicole Kidman in the movie based on the 1960s sitcom. It's made by INC International Concepts, comes in peach or white, and is available only at Macy's.

'I DO'

True love can be closer than expected. It can even be next door, as Vianca Samuels and Charles Wright found out.

After catching sight of each through a mutual contact, the two didn't really get to know each other until she asked for a little neighborly help.

"His house was behind mine, I could see it out the back window" she said. "One day, I needed some help moving my washer ... so I asked him. We ended up talking for three hours."

The couple exchanged vows Saturday at Old Storm Branch Baptist Church in North Augusta.
