Fashion is Your Personal Expression! by Denise Y. Mose, Ph.D, Columnist

Well, 2022 has a few weeks left and then it’s a wrap. Before we say good-bye, I want to pay homage to the fashion statements that have lasted all year long. Off-the-shoulder tops and velvet everything may have dominated your closets last year, but what lasted this year? Oh! I’m so glad you asked. Here’s a quick rundown of my top fashion trends that we indulged in this year:

Powerful in Pink: Is there ever a wrong time to wear pink? No, there isn’t. Whether it was the cotton-candy hue, bubblegum shade or soft pink lemonade — Pink was in! As we go into winter, look for more Pink, I know I will. Special kudos to Emmy Award Winner Zendaya and Valentino, Model Alton Mason and the very beautiful Actor Timothée Chalamet for adding this color to their wardrobes and never thinking twice. 


Cultural Couture that’s Chic: Wondering what to wear to the next political event while marching? A slew of designers were thinking the same thing! Slogan tops with empowering messages were all the rage on every runway. The message is loud and clear: Let your shirt do all the talking. 

Slim Bags Are In: Why lug around a heavy tote when you can just carry your smart phone? Everyone I know is slimming down in the purse area. You can still be bold in a smaller bag. Honestly, think of what you need to carry. Besides your phone, credit cards, lip gloss, and sunglasses, what else is there? Save your back some serious pain and get in step with a cute, yet small bag. Nice to see our celebrity men carrying a bag as well. I see you Omar Rudberg. 

Height in Heels: Don't get me wrong, I love the comfort of sneakers, but lets get those toes in line, shall we? For 2022, designers had sky-high platforms and I truly loved it! Who said sneakers couldn’t be classy? Recently, I went on a School Field Trip with my niece and grabbed a pair of burgundy high-heeled sneakers. Not only did my feet thank me, I got tons of compliments on my wardrobe. No more ubiquitous all-white kicks, a daring heel was a breath of fresh air for me. 

Everlasting Earrings: Why tamper with a formula that’s working? Statement earrings have been a favorite of the fashion set and partygoers for years. Personally, big and bold baubles compliment my ears. My hair is short and long earrings accentuate my physical presentation. To add spice, try a pair that dip past your shoulder. Trust me, if you don’t have a long pair there is still time. Visit #RollingRunwayBoutique on Instagram and go crazy! 

Striking Stripes: Timeless, absolutely timeless. I adore stripes. You can wear them with anything: slacks, scarves, tops, trousers. Have stripes, will travel! One of the reasons this style is so popular is because it’s easily wearable. I look forward to seeing you rocking stripes into the new year.

A new year is upon us. Let fashion and Dr. D be your guide!

Should You Color Your Eyebrows

  Photo by Jonas Svidras on Unsplash This is a question that has been debated for a long time by those who regularly color their hair. There are benefits to enhancing your eyebrows with a color that corresponds with your hair. However, many believe that dyeing your eyebrows will not necessarily result in a better appearance for your face. It often depends on how long you plan to keep the hair color and whether it's bright enough to require a slight tint to your eyebrows. Of course, if you're wearing extensions or temporary color, you wouldn't need to worry about changing the shade of your eyebrows. If you're like most people who've considered coloring their eyebrows, you've wondered whether it would create a look that's too flashy or over-the-top. In my opinion, if your hair is medium to light brown, you'll look fine with maintaining your natural eyebrow color. And of course, if your hair is darker, it's not necessary to even touch your eyebro
