Tread Tightly

blog_beauty_tights1Want to know one of the secrets to fall style? Black tights. This perennial staple is truly a wonder of the fashion world. Whether you're wearing a jewel toned mini to cocktail hour, a tweed pencil skirt to the office or you're simply schlepping around downtown in your comfiest weekend dress and boots, black tights gently squeeze your curves in all the right places and make your gams look ultra glam. The best part is that these hip pin covers can be purchased on the cheap by an all-purpose brand like Hue. Then there's Spanx, the mid range, suck-you-in variety that all the celebs swear by. And finally, if you want to indulge in the gold standard of legwear, grab a pair by luxe Austrian company Wolford. Sure it's hot right now, but stock up on black tights so you can don a pair the first day the thermometer dips below 70.

Hue and Spanx are available at Sockshop Santa Cruz, 1515 Pacific Ave., 429-6101. Wolford tights can be purchased at wolfordshop.com.

Santa Cruz Restaurant Week

A huge part of Santa Cruz Restaurant Week has always been about offering a great dining experience for an affordable price. For some locals, the $25 flat-rate cost has provided the opportunity (or the excuse!) to try new spots, and indulge in Santa Cruz fine dining in a way they might have thought too pricey before.

 

Scorpio Sun, New Moon Eclipse, Mercury Direct

The Sun enters Scorpio’s mysteries Thursday under a new moon and partial solar eclipse (something essential has come to an end, its purpose completed). In Scorpio we harbor secrets, are devoted to something deep, dark and hidden. Sometimes it’s ourselves. We can bring great suspect to our assessment of others. Scorpio is the scorpion, the serpent and the eagle—three levels of development. As the serpent we take shelter in our beliefs. Sometimes we bite (or sting). The eagle vanquishes old beliefs through its sharp intellect, soaring high in the air, seeking to understand through perspective. Understanding releases us from the bondage of fear. The eagle is like the mother soothing feelings of mistrust, offering protection. Knowledge does this, too.
