Question: Please recommend a suit that will be in keeping with the new trend to femininity, yet professional enough for the office. What jacket, skirt and blouse style? What fabric? What color? I'm 44, 5-foot-7, wear a Size 12 and work in an executive capacity. Don't be afraid to recommend a designer suit, as this will be my most major purchase of the season. If I cannot afford the exact suit you suggest, at least I will have a blueprint to guide me.--P.T.

A group of women have filed a federal lawsuit to block a new Alabama law that bans the sale of sex toys, arguing the law violates their right to privacy. "No one wants the government in their bedroom," Sherri Williams, one of six plaintiffs, said Friday. Williams owns two Alabama stores that sell sex devices. Another plaintiff, B.J. Bailey, sells similar items at in-home gatherings. The other four women challenging the law are described in the lawsuit as needing sexual aids to have orgasms.
