6 Short Wedding Dresses With Sleeves: Let's Help This Bride

6 Short Wedding Dresses With Sleeves: Let's Help This Bride

6 Short Wedding Dresses With Sleeves: Let's Help This Bride Pick Her Wedding Dress!
Ladies, this Save the Date reader needs our help! When I featured wedding dresses inspired by Keira Knightley's yesterday, reader LolaInHeels asked me if I could find short wedding dresses with "a little more pizzazz"—and sleeves—for her city hall wedding. Her budget is $2,000, but we can do WAY better than that! Here are my top picks:
Yes, some of these dresses look super short, but keep in mind, models are tall! Plus, wedding dresses tend to run long, so I'm sure there'd be plenty of length to work with. Oh, and the prices for the first three will depend on what boutique you buy them from, but they should all fall safely within budget.

<p>Five Syracuse Crunch players filled up shopping carts for a good cause on Monday.</p>
<p>Tanner Richard, Riku Helenius, Eric Neilson, J.P. Cote and Drew Olson went on a shopping spree at TJ Maxx at Destiny USA. The books, toys and clothes will be donated to Hillside Family of Agencies for distribution to local children.</p>
<p>The players worked off wish lists provided by children guest shoppers and the agency. As often happens when hockey players get together, the activity turned into a friendly competition to see who could put together the best cart of presents within the allotted budget.</p>
<p>"It's pretty well known around the (locker) room that I like to shop,'' Richard said. "I'm an impulse buyer. I think back to what I liked as a kid. There's Spiderman (a mask) over there. I was a real Superman fan as a kid. You try to get stuff that is general, that a lot of people can play. I saw a soccer ball back there. There's so many different games you can play with a ball as a kid. It's $5 of fun.''</p>
<p>Neilson argued for his strategy of checking out the clearance items.</p>
<p>"We're bargain shoppers,'' he said. "Our strategy was, let's get good things on clearance so we can get more.''</p>
<p>Neilson eyed with envy a Nerf basketball and hoop that he and his shopping buddy selected.</p>
<p>"If they had another one I'd probably go buy one for myself,'' he said. </p>
<p>Hillside wants to collect at least three gifts per child for about 1,000 local children. Fans will have their chance to contribute to the cause when Syracuse hosts Hamilton Saturday.</p>
<p>The team will run a promotion entitled "Syracuse Crunch Special Santas for Hillside Family of Agencies presented by Unilever.'' Items will be collected in the War Memorial Arena at the merchandise stands, in the entrance lobbies and at Guest Services before, during and after the game.</p>
<p>Items on Hillside Family of Agencies gift wish list include: hooded/logo sweatshirts, sports balls, jewelry, sport watches, duffle bags, drawstring bags, sports bags and purses, cologne, body sprays and body kits for teenage girls and guys, lotion, make-up and hair supplies and MP3 players under $25. All gifts should be new and unwrapped.

A Crocodile's Bumpy Road From Farm to Handbag
By Janice Kew and Andrew Roberts
October 24, 2013

<p><strong><a href="http://www.hermesreplicamall.com">hermes</a></strong> These days, women of every economic stripe can be seen carrying pricey leather handbags. Not so with totes made of crocodile, one of the most difficult luxury materials to obtain, especially in the pristine condition wealthy fashionistas expect. As demand from the world’s elite surges for the skins, luxury goods companies such as LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton ( MC:FP ) and Kering ( KER:FP ) , the owner of Gucci, are making acquisitions to secure a supply of the beasts, whose habits make even collecting their eggs a matter of life and death. Keeping crocodiles from scratching or biting each other as you raise them from hatchling to arm candy is another major challenge.</p>
<p><strong><a href="http://www.hermesreplicamall.com">hermes</a></strong> “Louis Vuitton, Prada ( 1913:HK ) , and Gucci are trying to elevate the level of perceived exclusivity of their brands, and exotic-skin products really help,” says Mario Ortelli, an analyst at Sanford C. Bernstein. Such skins make up almost 10 percent of the total revenue for luxury brands’ handbag sales, at least double their share a few years ago, he estimates. The incentive for luxury goods companies, many of which are wrestling with sluggish demand for their most widely available products, is clear: Crocodile handbags can cost more than 10 times similar leather ones. </p>
<p><strong><a href="http://www.hermesreplicamall.com">hermes</a></strong> Photograph by David Wall An Australian crocodile farm, from the air </p><p><strong><a href="http://www.hermesreplicamall.com">hermes</a></strong> An Hermès International ( RMS:FP ) Birkin bag, a staple of the wealthy, sells for about $10,000 in leather; the croc version runs about $50,000—with a five-year wait. For those who lack such patience, they’re available used on EBay ( EBAY ) for as much as $150,000. “There are women who don’t care about money that love the beautiful things,” says Gianluca Brozzetti, chief executive officer of fashion house Roberto Cavalli. “Demand for crocodile and alligator is large because I think it is one of the trends that never ends. It is a classic.” </p>
<p><strong><a href="http://www.hermesreplicamall.com">hermes</a></strong> Although saltwater porosus crocodiles can fetch higher prices, freshwater Nile crocs found in Africa aren’t as territorial or aggressive—although they’re hardly friendly. “If I’d known how hard this business was before I’d got into it, I may not be here today,” says Stefan van As, a former investment banker and owner of South Africa’s Le Croc breeding farm and tannery, which sends about 5,000 Nile crocodile skins to Europe each year.</p>
<p><strong><a href="http://www.hermesreplicamall.com">hermes</a></strong> Cow-leather hides are a byproduct of animals raised for beef. For a crocodile farmer, it’s the skins that pay the bills. (Some people consider croc meat a delicacy, but growers such as Van As simply feed it to the other animals.) An average handbag can be crafted from as few as two skins, for which Van As gets as much as $600 each.</p>
<p>While cows can ruminate for hours on their own in a meadow, from the moment a crocodile hatchling snaps its way out of the egg, Van As has to provide a calm environment to keep the critter from getting restless and damaging its hide. So the reptiles have their pens cleaned daily and are kept on a strict feeding schedule. They dine mostly on chicken and vitamin-fortified oils to improve their skin. All this care promotes growth, reduces stress, and helps keep the contented crocs’ jaws off each other. “The bottom line is that one cannot expect to harvest a first-grade skin from an animal which has been abused,” Van As says.</p>
<p>Nile crocodiles grow to about 16 feet long and weigh up to 1,500 pounds, or about two-thirds the size of the biggest porosus . And they’ll eat almost any prey that ends up in the water. Van As says a rival farmer was killed after falling in. “These are prehistoric animals that rely on instinct to protect themselves,” says Loic Bellet, a marketing executive at Via la Moda, which makes crocodile handbags in Johannesburg. “Obtaining a perfect skin is not easy.”</p>
<p>To protect the belly—the best part for bags—the slaughter, skinning, and even some of the tanning process at Le Croc are done by hand. At about three years of age, when they weigh roughly 50 pounds and are about 6 feet long, the animals are slaughtered. Van As carefully stuns his crocs twice, then cuts the nape of their necks and scrambles their brains with a needle. Some farmers are less gentle, Ben Williamson, a spokesman for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, said in an e-mail. This “often results in the crocodile enduring multiple blows, leading to a slow and painful death.” </p>
<p>To help avoid slaughter of wild crocodiles, each skin needs a certificate proving it’s not in violation of international protocols protecting endangered species. Thanks to the success of farming, which yields higher-quality skins, crocs no longer face extinction. </p>
<p>LVMH in February bought an Australian crocodile farm for $2.5 million to assure a steady flow of the animals. The following month, Kering bought tannery France Croco, a Normandy-based operation specializing in the sourcing and processing of crocodile skins for makers of leather goods. “It’s complicated to buy exotic skins,” says Jean Cassegrain, CEO of luxury house Longchamp, which sometimes purchases croc skins from rival luxury houses. “The supply is very limited.”</p>

<p> The bottom line: Accessories made from pristine crocodile skins can cost up to 10 times as much as those made of cow leather. </p>

Retailers take on Silicon Valley

</p>
<p><strong><a href="http://www.shipwatches.com">watches</a></strong> SAN FRANCISCO &mdash;
Software engineers wearing jeans and flip flops test the latest smartphone apps. Walls and windows double as whiteboards where ideas are jotted down. And a mini basketball net is in the center of it all.
At first glance, this workplace resembles any Silicon Valley startup. There&#8217;s just one exception: Target&#8217;s trademark red bulls-eye at the entrance.
Target, Kohl&#8217;s and home-shopping network QVC are among a half dozen retailers opening technology test labs in the San Francisco area to do things like improve their websites and create mobile shopping apps. They&#8217;re setting up shop in modern spaces and competing for top Silicon Valley talent to replicate the creativity, culture and nimbleness of online startups.&#160; The goal is to stay on top of tech trends and better compete with online rivals like Amazon.com that attract shoppers with convenient ordering and cheap prices. The labs are a shift for retailers, which like many older industries, have been slow to adapt to rapidly changing technology. But retailers say the labs are essential to satisfy shoppers who more often are buying on their tablets, PCs and mobile devices.
&#8220;Consumers expect immediate gratification,&#8221; says Lori Schafer, executive adviser at SAS Institute, which creates software for retailers. As a result, she says retailers need to develop technology in weeks, instead of months or years.
Retailers are playing catch-up after several years of watching shoppers gradually move from physical stores to the Web. Online sales have grown from 5.9 percent of $2.64 trillion in total retail sales in 2009 to 7.6 percent of the $3.1 trillion in revenue last year, according to Forrester Research.
The explosion of people using smartphones to shop has pushed stores to move faster. U.S. consumers are now spending more than half of their time on retailers&#8217; websites using their smartphones and tablets, according to the National Retail Federation, a retail trade group.
Retailers knew they needed to figure out how to create online and mobile technology, so they began looking to the Silicon Valley where they can tap the talent, culture and creativity that comes from tech giants like Facebook and Apple.
Wal-Mart, the world&#8217;s largest retailer, was the first to open a tech lab in Silicon Valley. Since opening Wal-MartLabs in San Bruno in 2011, the company has rolled out a number of technologies that it developed there.
One of the biggest projects? Wal-Mart rebuilt its website&#8217;s search engine, which launched in 2012. It can guess a customer&#8217;s intent when he or she types a term rather than just returning specific search results. A search for &#8220;denim&#8221; yields results for &#8220;jeans&#8221; instead of products with &#8220;denim,&#8221; for example.
Wal-Mart&#8217;s mobile app also has been a big focus at Wal-MartLabs, which has 1,200 workers and all the trappings of a Silicon Valley startup including treadmill desks and ping pong tables. For instance, Wal-MartLabs developed technology that enables Wal-Mart&#8217;s mobile app to show products and give discount offers to customers based on the aisle they&#8217;re in. It also developed technology that enables the mobile app to track customers&#8217; spending based on a predetermined budget.
Wal-Mart, which is based in Bentonville, Ark., says having a presence in Silicon Valley has been invaluable in part because it offers the company early access to technology entrepreneurs. For example, two years ago, Wal-MartLabs met the founders of a startup called Grabble as they were in Silicon Valley pitching their technology that enables customers to get receipts for their purchases by email. Wal-Mart has since bought the startup, hired the founders, and next year, shoppers will be able to get the so-called e-receipts.
The company says it&#8217;s so pleased with its results at Wal-MartLabs that it plans to open another tech office in nearby Sunnyvale in January. It also has smaller tech hubs elsewhere.&#160; &#8220;We are not a retailer in Silicon Valley,&#8221; says Neil Ashe, CEO of Wal-Mart&#8217;s global e-commerce operations. &#8220;We are building an Internet technology company inside the largest retailer.&#8221;
Teen retailer American Eagle opened its tech center in San Francisco in July. The 10,000-square-foot location is filled with movable desks to encourage spontaneous brainstorming sessions among its 20 workers. The goal: to get to know more about American Eagle&#8217;s customers.
Among its projects is an effort to consolidate the personal data of American Eagle customers, including their shopping history, from the company&#8217;s email campaigns and loyalty programs. The retailer wants to gain information that would help it better target its marketing around a customer&#8217;s buying habits.
Executives at American Eagle, which is based in Pittsburgh, say that&#8217;s just the beginning of the types of technology that could come out of its Silicon Valley center. Joe Megibow, a senior vice president and director of American Eagle&#8217;s tech center, says he envisions a future when customers can go into the store and have the clerk pull up information on a tablet, such as the shopper&#8217;s email address and buying history.
Target&#8217;s focus at its 5,000 square foot office in the historic Folgers Coffee Co. building is more futuristic. The lab, which opened with 20 workers in May, is looking at how wearable gadgets like smart watches &#8212; computerized watches that communicate with smartphones &#8212; can be used in its stores.
Additionally, Target, which is based in Minneapolis, is experimenting with a mobile app feature that would allow customers to call up information like whether certain cereal is gluten-free by taking a photo of the box with their cellphone camera.
None of the projects at Target&#8217;s lab have made it to shoppers yet, but David Newman, director of the center, says the goal is to test &#8220;the unexplored and underexplored.&#8221;

CABAZON: Slain Highway Patrol officer honored
November 19, 2013 by Darrell R. Santschi Kandie Shewmaker Cansler stands in front of the freeway sign honoring her first husband, who was slain in 1969.</p>
<p><strong><a href="http://www.copywatches.org">watches</a></strong> STORY AND PHOTOS BY DARRELL R. SANTSCHI</p>
<p><strong><a href="http://www.copywatches.org">watches</a></strong> The murder of a California Highway Patrol officer in Cabazon 44 years ago this coming Saturday was not just a family tragedy, his widow said Tuesday, Nov. 19.</p>
<p><strong><a href="http://www.copywatches.org">watches</a></strong> It was a tragedy for an entire town: Yucaipa.</p>
Ambers O. &#8220;Sonny&#8221; Shewmaker</p>
<p><strong><a href="http://www.copywatches.org">watches</a></strong> &#8220;We&#8217;re from a small town,&#8221; Kandie Shewmaker Cansler said. &#8220;Sonny grew up there. I grew up there. It was a personal affront to our town that one of our own young men was brutally murdered.&#8221;</p>
<p><strong><a href="http://www.copywatches.org">watches</a></strong> &nbsp;</p>
<p><strong><a href="http://www.copywatches.org">watches</a></strong> She was speaking to 150 law enforcement officers, family members and friends in the Beaumont Civic Center, where a freeway sign was unveiled that will mark a three-mile stretch of Interstate 10 in Cabazon to be renamed the Ambers O. &#8220;Sonny&#8221; Shewmaker Memorial Freeway.</p>
Kandie Shewmaker Cansler speaks at freeway sign dedication.</p>
<p>The 1960 Redlands High School graduate and U.S. Army veteran was a Highway Patrol officer assigned to the Banning station on Nov. 24, 1969, when he made a traffic stop along the freeway and was fatally shot.</p>
<p>&#8220;After the funeral service,&#8221; his widow said at Tuesday&#8217;s ceremony, &#8220;the procession made its way to the cemetery through the streets of Yucaipa and those streets were lined with people who bowed their heads, saluted and placed their hands over their hearts.</p>
<p>&#8220;To me, personally,&#8221; she said, &#8220;I was a little bit numb at that point, but I did see them and it did make an impact on me and makes me very proud to be from such a caring small town.&#8221;</p>
<p>Even as the ceremony took place, Caltrans workers were erecting one of the signs along the freeway. The other, unveiled during the nearly two-hour ceremony, has signatures of Shewmaker family members on the back.</p>
Chuck Shewmaker, the brother of the slain officer, and widow Kandie Shewmaker Cansler sign the back of the freeway sign.</p>
<p>It too was to be placed along the freeway, CHP spokesman Darren Meyer said, and officers were expected to lay flowers in front of it.</p>
<p>&#8220;Most people who pass by &#8230; won&#8217;t know what exactly happened,&#8221; CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow told the audience, but they will know &#8220;it stands for something good. It stands for heroics. It stands for a man who left everything on the field.&#8221;</p>

<p>Farrow told how a fellow airline passenger remarked that the fatal shooting had occurred a &#8220;very long time ago.&#8221;</p>
<p>&#8220;Not for those who were there,&#8221; Farrow said he responded. &#8220;It&#8217;s just a moment ago. Memories and the pain are still there as though it happened yesterday.&#8221;</p>
<p>He addressed Shewmaker&#8217;s widow, who has since remarried.</p>
<p>&#8220;You being here forces you, but also allows you to travel memory lane,&#8221; he said. &#8220;Memory lane is normally good. It&#8217;s a reflective time in people&#8217;s lives.&#8221;</p>
<p>He told her that memories of the tragedy are painful, but &#8220;as you look around this room you are surrounded by friends and family members who love you and loved Sonny &#8230; It&#8217;s going to be a good day because today is the day where the state of California pays its highest distinction, its highest award to public service.&#8221;</p>
<p>Eddie Conner, who had served as Shewmaker&#8217;s patrol partner, said speaking at the dedication ceremony was the second highest honor of his life, surpassed only by being named to the honor guard at Shewmaker&#8217;s funeral.</p>
<p>He thanked a group of civilians who stopped along the freeway in the aftermath of the shooting and called for help. He, Shewmaker&#8217;s widow and Farrow paid tribute to then-Palm Springs police Sgt. Bill Valkenburg, who arrested the killer later the same day as the shooting.</p>
<p>Valkenburg, who went on to become chief of the Palm Springs department, did not speak at the ceremony.</p>
<p>In an interview afterward, he said he and several other Palm Springs officers positioned themselves to watch traffic entering the city after an initial radio report told them to be on the lookout for a Buick driven by a hit-and-run driver who had injured a Highway Patrol officer in the San Gorgonio Pass.</p>
<p>The car turned out to be a stolen Oldsmobile, he said, and the driver &#8220;just punched it and took off&#8221; when another officer tried to stop him. Valkenburg, then a newly promoted police sergeant, joined the pursuit.</p>
<p>The suspect led police on a high-speed chase through residential neighborhoods, he said, before returning to Highway 111 and then out into the desert. At one point, the other officer&#8217;s car spun out in the sand and Valkenburg said he was alone in the chase.</p>
<p>The suspect&#8217;s car &#8220;got stuck in the sand,&#8221; Valkenburg said. &#8220;I ordered him out of the car at gunpoint, not knowing what I had yet. He did cooperate, got out and got on the ground. As I moved toward him I saw a semi-automatic pistol on the front seat where his hand had been.&#8221;</p>
<p>It wasn&#8217;t until after other officers arrived and the suspect, Gene Myrick, had been placed in the back of a police car that Valkenburg learned via police radio that an officer had been shot to death.</p>
<p>&#8220;I knew Shoemaker slightly,&#8221; Valkenburg said. &#8220;We both graduated from Redlands High School. He was a year ahead of me. I just hope it&#8217;s closure for the family.&#8221;</p>
<p>Wyrick, who had taken $142 in a robbery in Riverside, was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to death.</p>

<p>Cansler told the audience Tuesday that Wyrick&#8217;s death sentence was later commuted.</p>
<p>&#8220;I was OK with that as long as he stayed in prison,&#8221; she said. &#8220;But then, amazing as it seems, he began coming up for parole about every three years. We had a nightmare to worry about. It bothered me a lot to think that he would be out on the street some day again.&#8221;</p>
<p>Her worries were relieved, she said, when she got a phone call from a victim&#8217;s advocacy group telling her that Wyrick had died of a heart attack in prison in 2006.</p>
<p>When they heard that, the audience applauded.</p>

<p>&#8220;I just want everybody to know I&#8217;ve had a good life,&#8221; Cansler said. &#8220;It started out a little rocky. I found out I am a survivor.&#8221;</p>
