Hong Kong’s Miasuki to Launch Fashion Capsule

With three high-profile French showjumping athletes already by her side, Mia Lei, founder of Hong Kong-based equestrian label Miasuki, is continuing her European push with a fashion capsule due to launch in the spring.

Even in retirement, Obama still responds to strangers' wedding invitations

For many people, their wedding day is the best day of their lives. But for these Americans, the day they received a save-the-date response from Barack Obama may top the list. The former president (well, actually his office) continues to respond to wedding invitations -- even though he's left the White House. Apparently mail forwarding is one government function that has avoided the DC gridlock. Related: mermaid prom dresses Yes, it's only a form letter. But these recipients aren't going to let that dim their excitement. Earlier this week, Brooke Allen tweeted a photo of a response her mother, Liz Whitlow, just received from the Office of Barack and Michelle Obama to say congratulations on her wedding. Soon, others started sharing photos of similar responses they...

Woman honors grandmother she never met by wearing her wedding dress

Madison Kantzer was never the type to plan her dream wedding. But when she got engaged to her boyfriend Adam Hoffman in Dec. 2015, she already knew exactly which dress she would be wearing. Since her childhood in Potomac, Maryland, the 29-year-old admired the floor-length, beaded gown that once belonged to her grandmother, Adele Schiff Greene. Greene passed away at 40 in 1969, when Kantzer’s mother, Patricia Greene, was only 14. Although the two women never met, Kantzer had heard plenty of stories. Images: yellow prom dresses “My mother talks about her a lot, it’s weird I’ve never met her,” Kantzer told TODAY. Much of what Kantzer knows about her grandmother came from Carl and Geraldine Simon, the friends of Adele who stepped in to act as adoptive g...

I’ll never fit in at my family’s weddings

Welcome to Wedding Guest Wednesday, an occasional feature in which Solo-ish explores the joys and woes of attending other people’s weddings. Because it’s not all about the happy couple — it’s a big day for guests as well. When the first wedding invitation came, I realized I had no cowgirl boots. Hailing from Texas, it seems wrong. I should own them. In high school, boots were the ultimate accessory. Girls would get them personalized, wear them with dresses, shorts. They were versatile, they were necessary. But most of all, they told the world — the great, big Texan world — that you belonged. Images: green prom dresses When the next invitation came, I panicked. I had no boots and no date. But still, both weddings were for cousins on my dad’s side of t...
