Eat, Pray, Love and Shop! Must-Have Styles from the Movie

I'm looking forward to the movie adaptation of Elizabeth Gilbert's bestseller Eat, Pray, Love. I love the real life story of how the author quit her job and embarked on a year-long journey around the world after a painful divorce, another breakup, and battling depression. 


I'd like to finish reading the book before I see the movie so I can judge if Julia Roberts' portrayal does Gilbert's story of self-discovery justice.  But a more realistic goal might be for me to see the flick and do some shopping inspired by Roberts' travel savvy style.

Here are a few globally chic accessories every well-heeled travel gal should pack to get the "Eat Pray Love" look:



A flowing, ethnic scarf like this one by Satya Rai.



A sturdy and stylish pair of gladiator sandals like these, on sale now at Amazon.com.

A packable straw hat like this one from Scala Collezione.



A roomy Moroccan straw tote bag like this one by Traders and Company.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

(Tracy E. Hopkins) It's the end of a budget shopping era. Conway discount stores are closing in New York City . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to the Big Apple, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater Graces Brooklyn Academy of Music, June 4-9, 2024

Dance is expression. Dance is spiritual. Dance is activism. Dance is life. I feel most alive when I am listening to music and dancing.  As a spectator and fan, some of my fondest moments of watching dance performances have been witnessing the dignity and grace of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. Every time I see the Ailey company, I am inspired, moved, and grounded in the beauty and complexity of the African American experience.  Photo by Paul Kolnik For me, the highlight is always "Revelations," Mr. Ailey's three-part ode to his upbringing in the Black Baptist church. The three sections -- "Pilgrim of Sorrow"; "Take Me to the Water"; and "Move, Members, Move" -- tell the story of African American faith and persistence from slavery to freedom. Over the weekend,  I had the pleasure of taking an outdoor Community Workshop in downtown Brooklyn, where we learned some of the choreography for "Revelations." I beamed from ear to ear
