Blood Type Diet, Dr. Peter D'Adamo

December Book Launch by Dr. D’Adamo: The Genotype Diet

I’ve had Dr. Peter D’Adamo’s books on the Blood-Type Diet since 2002. I find that what he says is logical, and when employing his theories, I feel better. The four diets which Dr. D’Adamo designed are specifically for each of the four human blood-types, and are designed not merely for weight-loss, but for general health.

The theories in Dr. D’Adamo’s new book, The Genotype Diet, are even more advanced ones on the same theme.

I’m going to pre-order the Genotype Diet by Dr. Peter D’Adamo on Amazon.com.

The Merits of Wearing Gloves

I posted a piece on Elegant Survival about wearing gloves in December, 2006. I had worn kid gloves to an evening holiday party, and my husband wore gloves as well. A young lady commented favorably on our style. I spoke briefly about the merits of wearing gloves, expressing the hope that it would again become routine. I mentioned the scourge of staphylococcus aureus, whereupon she held up her hand with its missing finger–lost to the superbug! For years, I was regarded as an oddball simply for wearing driving gloves in Princeton. What a sad state of affairs that was, in a town known for its traditions. I also wore gloves at the supermarket to ward-off transference of germs on carts, et cetera*. I’ve read somewhere recently that glove-wearing is back in style. I hope that’s true.

I’ve Never Stopped Wearing Knee-Socks–in Certain Venues


In Bermuda, where I stocked up on them several times, they were only available in the Men’s version. As you can see, the sock foot, though size small, is still too large. I’ve lived with it for many years, though.

Update, February 2009: Three years ago, in 2006, I mentioned on Ask Andy about Clothes (I’m the member known as “The Wife”) that knee-socks, known as long socks in Britain, were difficult to find. My topic did not go unnoticed by the fashion world. Alex Kabbaz began to stock Pantherella over-the-knee socks, and I got stocked up on them quickly. Here are ladies’ Pantherella over-the-knee-socks from England. They are best worn pulled up to the knee, with the extra inch or two elegantly folded over at the top.

Dress Like a Siren for a Song!
The Los Angeles company is called Buy in America. I’ll start with this cocktail dress. Please see their sizing chart. I disagree with their numbers, but after all, what matters is how the dress looks.

Almost all of the company’s dresses and gowns can be accompanied by their matching taffeta shawls–which are available at $6.00 each! Some really cute, old-fashioned evening bags and reticules are also on offer at Buy in America.

This next one is actually available in a 44-inch bust: Shimmering Cocktail Dress
Note: sometimes there are additional sizes listed a bit lower on the page.
At these prices, I can’t accuse them of driving down the “plus size” to drive up the price of the dress.

Long Evening Gowns with Matching Shawls

Good news: Buy in America takes PayPal.
