Let me see if I have this right. La Habra plans to ban clotheslines because the City Council considers clean, sweet-smelling clothes to be a "blight." Yet La Habra is doing nothing to address the blight of traffic and air pollution. Maybe people are supposed to wear dirty clothes so that everything matches--the clothes, the cars, the air. Perhaps there is even a City Council term for this, such as coordinated-aesthetics-of-the-external-environment. I must admit it makes a California kind of sense.

"Clothes and the Aging Body" really hit the mark. Kudos to the Arizona women doing the research. Their statistics certainly describe me and my problems. I still lead an active life at 72 and have great difficulty finding well-fitting clothes that are appropriate regardless of price--especially tennis items. Thanks for printing this, and hopefully more manufacturers will respond. JOYE TATZ Rancho Mirage

At age 9 months, Colette Walker dresses only in natural fibers and primarily in layers of loose knits--just like her mother, Judy. Sierra Helvey, 5, leans toward the romantic and feminine when it comes to clothes. She will only wear dresses. Adores ruffles. And to her mother's amazement, she refuses to wear pants--or shorts. Amy Lyne, 10, has her own distinct look too, as she has had, according to her mother, since she was 6.

For those who've seen the buzziest of buzzy holiday movies, Spike Jonze's “Her,” you probably left the theater with much to think about. One of the biggest questions, at least from a filmmaking standpoint: How did Jonze and his team arrive at the future we see on the screen? Infinitely relatable though gently different, the Los Angeles of Jonze's unspecified future occupies a new and exciting place in cinematic history--and the history, as it where, of futurism itself. “Her's” L.A.” is a million miles from “Blade Runner,” but it also not entirely a utopia.

Frequently, shoppers in Hong Kong suspect that the discount prices they're paying for clothes with designer labels are too good to be real. Often their fears are groundless. The clothes are genuine designer overruns being sold for little more than cost. Other times, their suspicions are right. The clothes turn out to be counterfeit and subject to confiscation by U.S. customs officials. How do you tell the difference? Sometimes it's very difficult.

Helene Sidel was born to the fashion business. Her father ran a wholesale dress company. Her mother owned a women's retail store in Cedarhurst on Long Island. "When you're sitting up on a cutting table at 2 years old, you don't know anything else," Sidel said. "From the age of 1 on, I heard my father talk about reorders at the dinner table." So it seemed only natural that Sidel would try her hand at the family trade.
