Super Six: ‘Fall’ into some great products

By Kelly Hockenberry, Columnist, The Times Autumn, is that you? Could it be that Mother Nature has agreed to forgo the relentless heat and humidity in favor of some seasonable weather? I love, love, love fall in Chester County. The colorful leaves add even more magic to an already stunning landscape. And, the chilly temps necessitate adding layers, which is my favorite when it comes to personal...

An event to help transition into Fall Fashion

By Kelly Hockenberry, Columnist, The Times This may come as a surprise…but, I am not a fashion expert (although, I sorta have held myself out to be since I started this column six years ago). I don’t have a degree and I can’t even sew a button. I just have strong opinions, a big mouth, and a knack for picking the most expensive options on the planet. What can I say? It’s a gift. However,...

June SuperSix: Summer is finally here!

By Kelly Hockenberry, Columnist, The Times It’s summer, it’s summer, it’s summer….HOORAY!

Super Six: March roars in like a lion

By Kelly Hockenberry, Columnist, The Times Well, March lived up to its reputation of coming in like a lion! I feel very, very fortunate to have electricity right now. What a mess! I’m assuming that a lot of you are probably reading my article on your phone, so I am determined to make this Super Six worth your while. My birthday also happens to fall at the end of the month…so, it’s a wishlist,...

Fashion and gun control

By Kelly Hockenberry, Columnist, The Times Well, it’s safe to say that the Gucci Fall 2018 Runway show was a tad bizarre this year. Creative director, Alessandro Michele, in a post show press conference, said the collection was a nod to the way people are “undergoing self-regeneration through the powers of tech, Hollywood, Instagram, and Gucci.” (see full Vogue article here http://bit.ly/2FuZc0E)...

Alexa, dress me

By Kelly Hockenberry, Columnist, The Times I have an embarrassing confession. (How many times have I revealed pieces of myself to you, the reader? Countless. Yet, I still manage to show my face in public.) In high school, I kept a clothes diary. Yep, I did (vapid as it may seem). An elaborate, daily log of what I wore (including accessories) so as not to repeat for as long as possible. I had an...

A ‘Blush and Bashful’ Super Six for January

By Kelly Hockenberry, Columnist, The Times Whelp. All that posturing about writing meaningful content in the new year is on hold. Because, after conferencing with friends, it seems that most people hold my fashion picks in higher regard than my opinions on life. (sigh). Am I not as profound as I think I am? Alas, I do love the excuse to shop in the name of journalism. So, I’m kicking off 2018...

SuperSix: The holiday rush is officially ON!

By Kelly Hockenberry, Columnist, The Times Hello November! Once Halloween is over, the insane rush to the holiday season is ON. Since it’s time for my monthly Super Six, I figured we may as well jump on the bandwagon. After all, Walmart has the entire back of the store chock full of faux Christmas trees and inflatable snowmen. No time like the present to focus on some (pretty awesome) presents… Ready? UGG...
