The One Swimsuit That's Part-Bikini, Part One-Piece

All of my fellow indecisive ladies, please stand up. Every time an outing requiring a swimsuit pops up, I spend far too much time ruminating over one decision: bikini or maillot? If you would have asked me this question five years ago, that answer would be simple: bikini. But one-pieces are back, and they're much chicer than the swim meet-style options of the past.What's one to do when they want to show off a little more skin than a one-piece allows, but would rather skip the full exposure of a...

Turning Failure Into Prosperity: How 4 Women Used Their Setbacks To Achieve Success

Ask any successful woman and she’ll tell you, on the road to financial freedom and confidence, you’re likely to hit a few bumps along the way. Setbacks come in many forms — the layoff that hits you when you least expect it, the business launch that flops, or the debt that feels completely overwhelming.

Perfect Album; Plays for Bird

It's hard to pick a perfect Sonny Rollins album. So many of them are great. They all have distinct personalities, and nearly all are monumental expressions and achievements. So I made my decision based on feel. I know Sonny. We frequently have long phone conversations.

[Photo above of Sonny Rollins by Chuck Stewart] The album I chose for this series is Rollins Play...

In 1972, around the time that Eumir Deodato was recording Prelude, an album for CTI that would become a massive hit, the Brazilian arranger and keyboardist also was recording Os Catedráticos 73 in Rio de Janeiro and New York. The album was a gentler and more lyrical, samba-rich ride than the fusion-y Prelude and something of a hedge.
