Fall Accessory Preview

We all know the right accessories can make your style stand out. Take Annie Dorsey’s advice and be ahead of the curve this fall! Annie from Westfield Great Northern Mall brought falls hottest compliments to your wardrobe.

  • Sheer materials/fabrics – unusual because Fall is typically when you tuck sheer away & bring out corduroy!
  • RED – it’s not just for Holiday this year!
  • Python print – forget leopard or zebra print!
  • Bright colors – not the usual golds, maroons, etc. Think cobalt blues and purples.
  • Footwear
    • Pony-hair / calf-hair heels
    • Borrowed-from-boyfriend styles
  • Mashed up metals – gold with silver with pewter all in one piece.

They came to the Fox 8 studios to host their own comedy special, “His and Hers.” Today, we gave you a sneak peak of all the laughs to come. Stay tuned for the full episode that premieres tomorrow, during the second half of New Day Cleveland!

AAA

Now that school is back in session, there are some important tips to keep in mind. Brian Newbacher from AAA talked with Kristi about an easy safety checklist to keep children safe while walking home from school.

  • Slowing down – Speed limits in school zones are reduced for a reason. A child struck by a vehicle traveling at 25 miles per hour is nearly two-thirds less likely to be killed compared to one struck by a vehicle traveling 10 miles per hour faster.
  •  Eliminating distractions – Children often cross the road unexpectedly and may emerge suddenly between two parked cars. 
  •  Reverse responsibly – Every vehicle has blind spots. Check for children on the sidewalk, driveway and around your vehicle before slowly backing up.
