Word of an intriguing charitable effort crossed my desk recently, a business-clothing drive for job seekers who do not have the money to pull together an outfit appropriate for a first interview. I learned about the drive from Camille Tucker, director of communications for La Cañada Presbyterian Church, where the drive, called “Suit Yourself,” will be held on Sunday, from noon to 3 p.m. Now is the time to give up that tailored suit sitting unworn at the back of your closet.

For example, a sweater (single layer) vs. a sweater set (double layer) means that the choice on the left is more casual than the choice on the right. 1 . Application of layers: Single layer; 2 + layers (sweater vs. sweater set) 2. Feel of fabric: satin)

The children of the La Cañada Flintridge Community Center preschool experienced the joy of giving this holiday season by adopting four families. The preschoolers collected an array of clothing, presents and gift certificates for each of the families in need. A holiday "giving tree" was placed in the courtyard of the preschool and children were encouraged to select an ornament with a specific wish request. Volunteers from the preschool prepared large gift baskets and delivered them on Friday, Dec. 15. Support from the preschool for the program has been tremendous resulting in numerous presents and much needed winter clothing and other "essentials."

Part I : The latest statistics from the Society for Human Resource Management show that 89% of U.S. companies allow workers to wear casual clothing one day a week.

The Hewitt Work/Life Survey of 1,020 major U.S. companies indicates that two-thirds of employers offer casual or business casual dress, so this is definitely a casual era.

Part 2 T his week and next I'll wrap up an interview a graduate student, Ivan Iannoli, held with me recently. Iannoli is completing his master of fine arts degree in photography at UCLA and posed several questions to me. Last week I printed the first portion of the interview. Q. If I'm surrounded by the "right" colors, that is, the colors that best suit me, how might my life be different than if I were surrounded by the wrong, or inappropriate colors? The right colors are supportive, not dominant, and highlight a person's eyes, skin, hair, bone structure and energy intensity.

Part 1 ? Each personality has its own uniqueness and charm. The Asian terms Yin Yin and Yang are often used to define masculine and feminine characteristics that each of us has in our personalities. Yang traits (masculine characteristics) are endurance, strength, and firmness. Yang is sophisticated, smart, and mature. Yin traits (feminine characteristics) are daintiness, sensitivity, and gentleness. Yin is delicate, charming, and sweet. Most of us have a combination of Yin and Yang, and understanding the different qualities help in choosing fashions that emphasize personal expression.
