StorkivoryOriginally published in 1904 and just re-released, this oversized hardbound keepsake makes the perfect gift for new moms. Reminiscent of simpler days, this heirloom book is the perfect way to record baby’s firsts, from "baby’s first photograph" to "baby’s first playmates".

Throughout the book are classic poems by Lewis Carroll, Robert Lewis Stevenson, and Eugene Field and drawings by Albertine Randall Wheelan, one of the country’s first female illustrators. Packaged with acid-free photo corners and a black gel pen in a custom-made box tied with a grosgrain ribbon, this is truly a memorable gift.

1575_croppedDid you know that 8 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong size bra?

One of our "style chefs" (and we won’t say who) learned this fact the hard way during a recent bra fitting with the Chantelle experts at Saks. After years of wearing a 36C, our editor (who again, will remain anonymous) was dismayed to learn she’s actually a 34D. Of course, armed with this new information, the bra fitter swiftly selected the perfect bra which, amazingly, did not ride up in the back or slip off the shoulders.

If you haven’t been properly fit for a bra recently, click here for tips on how to determine your size at home. Or, you can always visit Liliana in the Chantelle department at Saks in NYC - and tell her an anonymous StyleBakery editor sent you.

Chantelle Lingerie is a proud supporter of Dress for Success, which provides interview suits, confidence boosts and career development services to economically challenged women making the transition into the workforce. Purchase one of four top-selling Chantelle bras through May 31, 2005 and they will donate $2 to the program.
