Q&A: Dawnn Karen Talks Fashion Psychology | Lifestyles

Q: In the past, we kept it a secret when we got a bargain, why and how has that changed?

Karen: Discounts were once associated with misfortune but now in these uncertain times being thrifty signals financial mindfulness and planning which are increasingly attractive and trendy. Over 50% of Americans say they find thriftiness to be attractive so coupon clipping in private is a thing of the past and expect to see deals on social and even dating platforms.  People want to share the love and their knowledge, and help others save as well. Thriftiness (deal sharing) has even become a covert way of flirting!

Q: Should a consumer pay ticketed price if they love an item?

Karen: If consumers don’t want to experience a psychological whiplash aka buyer’s remorse, I suggest purchasing an item on a deal would be gratifying in two ways. One they’ll feel euphoric buying something

Model Fran Summers Talks Beauty Treatments and Fragrance

Fran Summers broke into the world of high-fashion modeling and beauty almost on accident. When she was 15 years old, she took a trip to London to visit her sister. The two stopped into a makeup store, where a makeup artist asked if Summers had ever considered modeling. At the time, she had not, but the next day, she visited Storm Management, a modeling agency in the city, and in a whirlwind of events, she walked out with a contract.

“I was just [in the makeup store] to have a look at new products and look for a good primer,” she told POPSUGAR. “That is definitely my must-have beauty product if I had to only keep one.” Six years later, and the model was just recently announced as the new face of Burberry Beauty, where she will be starring in the Her campaign. This is her fifth campaign she’s done

Women should be at the center of Afghan peace talks

With Afghan peace talks underway, those seeking to undermine the process are targeting Afghan women in hopes of derailing it. The US embassy in Afghanistan warned last month that extremist organizations are planning attacks that take direct aim at women, including teachers, government workers, and human-rights activists. The threats underscore how central Afghan women’s rights are to the success of the Afghan peace process and to the country’s future.

Boris Johnson will demand that the increasingly isolated French president, Emmanuel Macron, caves in to UK demands on fishing as the price for a trade and security deal at a key meeting with the European commission president on Saturday.

The prime minister will feel strengthened by comments from the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, on Friday, when she described the fisheries deal struck by Britain with Norway this week as a “constructive indicator”.

British officials argue that Norway, a non-EU member state, which conducts annual negotiations with the bloc on fishing quotas, should be the model for a post-Brexit deal on shared stocks.

Simon Doonan talks fashion in a pandemic: ‘It’s a great antidepressant’

Like the rest of us, Simon Doonan has spent much of 2020 stuck at home — but don’t expect the author, fashion commentator, “Making It” judge and bon vivant to succumb to a life of sweatpants.

“I put on a little outfit every day. I pretend I’m going somewhere, even if I’m not,” Doonan, 67, told Page Six Style from his home on Shelter Island, where he and his husband, potter and designer Jonathan Adler, have been self-quarantining during the coronavirus pandemic.

“I find it’s like a great antidepressant; it’s definitely a mood elevator. There’s always somebody to dress up for, even if it’s the window cleaner! You owe it to yourself — it’s good for your psyche.”

Simon Doonan poses with his new book, "How to Be Yourself: Life-Changing Advice from a Reckless Contrarian," wearing the JW Anderson x Uniqlo sweater that inspired the cover design.

Arike Ogunbowale Talks Fashion, The Dallas Wings, And Social Justice

Arike Ogunbowale is one of the WNBA’s fastest rising stars. In just her second season in the league, she averaged a league-high 22.8 points on 41% shooting, 3.5 assists and 2.8 rebounds per game. In doing so, she earned the 2020 WNBA Peak Performer Award for scoring after posting the highest scoring average by a second-year player in league history.

The former Notre Dame guard took over games with ease this season, and was one of the more dependable figures on a young Dallas Wings team that was hindered by injuries this season. In 2020, Ogunbowale had 37 straight games in double-figures scoring, good for the second-longest double-digit streak in franchise history. She also had four games in which she scored at least 30 points.

As she showed this year in Bradenton, Florida, Ogunbowale is a force to be reckoned with in the WNBA. And off the court, she’s making

Saks CEO Talks Fashion, Flagship and the Go-Forward Agenda

For the holiday 2020 season, Saks Fifth Avenue isn’t following the pack.

While many retailers, desperately trying to navigate the health crisis, have already started or will start the push to sell holiday gifts four to six weeks earlier than last year, Saks isn’t rushing into it.

“Our gifting story starts about the same time. It’s mid-November when we start the push. We’re not moving it up,” Marc Metrick, president and chief executive officer of Saks Fifth Avenue, said. “Saks approaches holiday a little bit differently than Lord & Taylor and Macy’s.”

Aside from discussing holiday 2020, Metrick in a wide-ranging Zoom call interview, said online sales are up by double digits; brick-and-mortar is flat, and the Fifth Avenue flagship is having a tough time, though he contended Saks is capturing market and beamed about men’s wear as the best-selling department.

Saks has been mostly mum on its plans for
