Detroit on the fly - Happy Hour


  • Esther Rubyan

The day's work is done. But a second wind awaits you if you'll just put your fanciest foot forward. And stepping out means outward changes. Alter your outlook distinctively by adding a little leather and lace, or some beads and a boa, whatever it takes to keep you going. Amid the clink of glasses, the chatter in the ladies' room or the roar of balls thundering down the lanes, the right accessories will help you find inner peace. While everybody else is concerned with life's strikes and gutters, having grace means knowing it's all in the form of your throw — and that a smooth roll beats forcing it every time.
