The smell of chocolate and coziness of this unbelievable place make us think in an old fashioned sense. It smells like Christmas here or just simply home, a warm and welcoming place. The owner Arlene Brockel is one of the warmest human beings you will ever meet and very passionate about her chocolatier artistry. (Video featuring Arlene and The Chocolate Lab of Bethlehem coming soon)

reveal your radiant nature

A Fashion Page, presents model Olivia Swiadek. She is a beautiful and radiant, natural 5’10” stunner. She is unbelievably nice and I’d kill for her body.

For this photoshoot, John Rounds captured Olivia at both her cheerful and her most sultry- and we decided that it is virtually impossible to take an unflattering picture of the model. She has strong facial features and beautiful eyes, so she can handle any light or angle.

Up Close With Faith

With our new model Faith Garavaglia and an awesome vintage boutique in downtown Bethlehem called The Attic, A Fashion Page team has done it again!

The perfect blouse top and go anywhere bag. A fashionable closet is not complete until it contains these two things. Both can be worn again and again and are add-instant-polish pieces.  Commit to finding the right one and you'll never have fashion angst again.

A round of applause for The Attic boutique, whose amazing selection of clothes set the tone for our Fall Season editorial. Our two major influences- mix of formal and casual ladylike looks and romantic 80s glam.

The theme of this photoshoot was "Goddess," and no one could summed up that concept better than Faith with her all-eyes-on-me, gorgeous hair and heavnly blue eyes.

Rain or shine, the bottom of the choice is the mini skirt. Whether classic black or so trendy sequin theme, these skirts are oh so chic.

ALL CLOTHES AND ACCESSORIES CAME FROM THE ATTIC BOUTIQUE

Suede Promotions

Open your eyes to latest fashion statements.

Featured here are luxe suede Jeffrey Campbell booties in an open-toe profile and a Free People boxy cotton pullover styled with a lace-up neckline, an oversize hood and handy front pockets.

There's nothing more fashionable and sexy this season than a lace-up closure and exposed back zip on a peep toe bootie. Jefferey Campbell, a large renowned global luxury shoe brand, has become a driving force in unique signature designes that combine innovation with tradition.

I hope you can forgive me for having an attack of Seventies deja vu. The suede, that age-old fabric ripe with history of bohemian comfort, is staging a comeback. No one champions the feel-good possibilities of fashion more religiously than me, that's why I dress in suede pieces season after season.

I am wearing: Pullover jacket: Free People, Sunglasses: Miu Miu, Choker: Aqua, Bag: 10 Crosby Derek Lam, Suede Skirt: Misguided, Booties: Jefferey Campbell,

This is what I call preppy, hip and sexy!

What kind of jacket should you wear with a snap front mini skirt?

I recommend a short quilted zip front jacket option. All you need now: a fun crop top and hot wedge platform sandals.

On the bottom, wide skirts complement a short, boxy jackets: this front snaps skirt gets an update with an adorable scalloped hem.

Adding texture- in Burberry Brit fall jacket- lifts the look into multiple-compliment territory. To look dapper keep the jewelry accessories minimal. Squared-off flat handbag or clutch should telegraph smart elegance. Low heel mules would be another great option but with a skirt, stick to higher wedge platforms.

For Jamie's make up: Definitely less is more! And our precious model gets away with using very little. Because of her luminous skin, we stick with earthy tones: gold, brown, caramel, bronze.

With each shoot, she just gets prettier.

Don't you agree that these Loewe sunglasses make this look noticeably more interesting? Black and blue make wonderful wardrobe builders; they're easy to mix and match, and they're especially stylish when you stir in a little rusty gold details or a touch of darker metallic blue like the Whistles clutch.

Splurge only on standouts since you'll be using them all season long.

The Next Big Thing? NYE-Inspired Evening-Wear!

Think bold beauty glitter and metallic dance party. This New Year's Eve is all about sliver & gold glittering glamour and it doesn't matter if you are planning on dancing to some '80s-sounding electro music in some fantastically dingy club or parting at the little house on the beach. In today's post we ended up getting quite carried away with the shimmering gold and metallic accents.

When it comes to wearing this look, there is only one rule! You must enjoy it! If you don't enjoy it, it doesn't look natural. Other guidelines, not rules, you might want to apply: keep your hair and jewelry fairly simple and wear high heels.

Of course, It 's easy to be glamorous if you're model Jamie Klein. She is what we all want to be: tall, thin and gorgeous, and she is smart to recognize her gifts. We are extremely lucky to be working with her.

The right amount of make up is glamorous. Our NYE make up by Danika Clevenstine is fun and brilliant.

So if you have tons of gold and sliver sandals, clothes and vintage accessories wear them now. Keep them too, they always stay in rotation.

The level of the photography work displayed in our posts by John Rounds throughout 2015 has been astonishing. We’re already looking forward to seeing what our amazing photographer can do in 2016!

Short Story For Every Woman!

A chic jean jacket is the mini's perfect partner.

End of Summer's higher-than-ever hemlines are the new fashion favorites for the girl who's on the go. When going super short, replace the mile-high stiletto with chic flats- there are plenty to choose from this season.

This is also a perfect season to start your private collection of bracelets, bangles and cuffs.

Your everyday bag-downsized to a perfectly portable purse or clutch-in wear-with-everything neutral.

For the next few weeks you can still pair your gladiator natural leather sandals with skinny pants or a casual mini skirt like the one Jamie is wearing on the photos.

On the weekends, keep it simple and sporty with basic tees, knits and denim jackets. With a sexy mini at night, a looser top will keep the proportions right.

It's a very body-conscious look, yet the mini skirt can be very flattering. Making it work depends on color- prints can be a really great choice- and other elements of your outfit.

Jamie is wearing: Jacket: H&M, sold out (love this one too) Sandals: American Eagle (love these ones too), Clutch: Calvin Klein, Tank: Apartment 9 (love this one too), Skirt: Casey Tribal Print, Sunglasses: Steve Madden, Bracelet: handmade, Earrings: Kenneth Jay

THE MINI

The skirt of the season has reached new heights- and whether it's scandalously skintight, flouncy and flirty, or slim and sophisticated, there's a suitable style for everyone.

HOW TO WEAR IT IN YOUR 20S

TOP: MAURICES, COAT: ARTIZIA, SKIRT: MANGO, SHOES: SHOPAKIRA, BAG: DIANE VON FRUSTENBERG, NECKLACE: ECLETCTICA VINTAGE, BANGLES: MONKI, WRAP BRACELET: MCQ, SUNGLASSES: LINDA FARROW

Keep the concept of mini relative: In your 20s, a traffic-stopping suede mini, graphic tank top and easy silhouette Italian wool coat are perfect for brave fashion followers. Bold but totally acceptable. Just remember you must feel comfortable with the length. If you feel as if you're baring too much, then most likely you are.

HOW TO WEAR IT IN YOUR 30S

SWEATER: ZARA, BLOUSE: UNIQLO, SKIRT: NEW LOOK, SHOES: NINE WEST, BAG: MARNI, BRACELET: CHAN LUU, EARRING STUDS: EDDIE BORGO, BEANIE: COAL THRIFT, SUNGLASSES: FLOWER2

SWEATER: ZARA, BLOUSE: UNIQLO, SKIRT: NEW LOOK, SHOES: NINE WEST, BAG: MARNI, BRACELET: CHAN LUU, EARRING STUDS: EDDIE BORGO, BEANIE: COAL THRIFT, SUNGLASSES: FLOWER2

Those in their 30s can still go short-short- depending on whether it's for day, night, work, or weekend. The shorter the skirt, the lower the heel.

HOW TO WEAR IT IN YOUR 40S

TOP: GLAMOUROUS, COAT: MAX MARA, MINI SKIRT: ARMANI, BOOTIES: BCBG, BAG: BURBERRY, CUFF RING: NASTY DRESS, NECKLACE: ALEXIS BITTAR, SUNGLASSES: ILLESTEVA

Okay in your 40s you are most likely thinking an inch or two above the knee but on rare occasions it is absolutely allowed, especially to those who do not want to hide their legs just yet, to put on a flirty, textured mini and kitten heels to dress it up a bit. Especially when there is no cleavage involved, and the blouse is not fitted. Sexy and elegant.

HOW TO WEAR IT IN YOUR 50S

CARDIGAN: TORY BURCH, SHIRT: TOP SHOP, SKIRT: ZAC POSEN, SATCHEL: FENDI, EARRINGS: KATE SPADE, BRACELET: DAVID YURMAN, SCARF: MAGASCHONI, SANDALS: RAMARIM

In your 50s you can pair pumps or heeled sandals with just-above-the knee skirt for a more sophisticated look. Obviously you don't always have to look like a librarian but it is a very flattering look. If you wear loafers or flat shoes you can easily rise your hemline an inch or two above your knees.

HOW TO WEAR IT IN YOUR 60S

SWEATER: BARBARA BUI, CAPE: VALENTINO, SKIRT: THEORY, BOOTIES: BANDOLINO EVORA, CLUTCH: DOROTHY PERKINS, BRACELET: NANCY GONZALEZ, EARRINGS: EDDIE BORGO,

In their 60s+ it is safe to say women should stick to clean and simple just above the knee skirts in a conservative solid color or black and white patterns, but I am also a fan of dark florals and tweed pastels. I find that mature women who do go for brighter colors and busier patterns are fearless fashionistas no matter what age.

 

HOW TO WEAR IT If YOU ARE CURVY

SHORT SLEEVE SWEATER: MBJ, JACKET: RIVER ISLAND, SKIRT: ROMWE, SANDALS: DSQUARED2, BAG: TOM FORD, EARRINGS: SONOMA LIFE, LEATHER BRACELET: MANGO, RED BRACELET: VINTAGE, SUEDE BRACELET: GREENBEANS BY EMILY & ASHLEY, LEATHER GLOVES: VALENTINO, HEAD WRAP: CARA, SUNGLASSES: ILLESTEVEA

For the more curvy and top-heavy, a bright-colored or single breasted in beige or cream color skirt with a neutral or black shirt creates the proper balance

HOW TO WEAR IT If YOU ARE BOTTOM-HEAVY

CARDIGAN: ROMWE, SHIRT: R13, SKIRT: NEW LOOK, BOOTIES: GIUSEPPE ZANOTTI, WRISTLET: VERA BRADELY, EARRINGS: CHANEL, BANGLE: NEW LOOK, HAT: MICHAEL STARS, SUNGLASSES: VINCE CAMUTO

 A fuller-figured woman, especially if she is bottom-heavy, should wear a more A-line skirt and pair it with a simple top, like a button-down shirt or blouse, keeping the colors dark for slimmer silhouette.

HOW TO WEAR IT If YOU ARE SLIM-HIPPED

SHIRT: KARL LAGERFELD, COAT: GANT, SKIRT: CHLOE, BOOTS: JEFFREY CAMPELL, BAG: MICHAEL BY MICHAEL KORS, EARRINGS: ACCESSORIZE, BANGLE: ARMENTA

SHIRT: KARL LAGERFELD, COAT: GANT, SKIRT: CHLOE, BOOTS: JEFFREY CAMPELL, BAG: MICHAEL BY MICHAEL KORS, EARRINGS: ACCESSORIZE, BANGLE: ARMENTA

A slim-hipped woman should pick a mini with a bit of a flair and pair it with a wispy top, nipped in slightly at the waist to create curves.
