Style Extra

Razor loaded with lotion soothes shaving

Shaving when you are prone to dry skin isn't a welcome part of bathing. So we were eager to try Schick's Intuition, a shaver with the triple-edge cartridge surrounded by a thick ring of a solid aloe-cocoa butter-Vitamin E concoction.

When moistened, it provides a lather of lotion. It gave a close shave, and left legs smooth and not needing an extra coat of lotion afterward. $7.99, includes razor, one cartridge plus one refill, cap and shower hanger (refills three for $7.99). At drug and retail stores.

Spring showing: S. Stewart Ltd in Wyoming is welcoming spring with two shows: T-shirts, jackets and pillows by Elizabeth High today through Saturday, and 18-carat gold jewelry and precious gems from Maenad Designs May 9-10. Ongoing shows at the shop include oil paintings by Jan Boone, handmade sterling and gold jewelry by Barbara Terrell, hand-smocked dresses for little girls by Janet Marshall, custom jewelry by Elizabeth Grace and make-up artistry by Vivien. The shop is at 411 Wyoming Ave. Information: 948-1414.

New bras: Nursing bras aren't normally thought of as a fashion accessory but Wacoal's new seamless design, available mid-May, is a step in the right direction. The bra has seamless cups that stretch and mold for a better fit and underwires for extra support. The inner lining and banded frame are made of a quick-drying, breathable fabric, and the cups detach easily at the top with a quick-release single-hook system made for one-hand closing. $48 at Saks, Dillard's, Parisian and Lazarus. Information: www.Wacoal-america.com.

Bra with a pocket: Bra-maker Leading Lady teamed with designer Lausanne Lee to design a bra with a pocket sewn into the lining of each cup. Secured with a small Velcro tab, the Top Secret bra allows women to carry money, keys, ID cards or a credit card when out walking, shopping, dancing or at sports activities. $24.95 at Kohl's, Elder-Beerman, Knickers in Hyde Park and Women's Health Boutique in Madeira.

Snooty Fox hunt: The spring Snooty Fox bus tour taking shoppers to its 10 regional clothing and furniture consignment stores will be 11 a.m.-6:30 p.m. Sunday. Customers get a 15 percent discount, lunch and treats. $25. Reservations: 231-0457.

Diana's dresses in Louisville: A collection of five gowns worn by the late Princess Diana, now owned by Ellen Louise Petho of Michigan who exhibits them to benefit charities, will be benefit Hospice & Palliative Care of Louisville patients and their families May 15-17 in Louisville. A private viewing 7-10 p.m. May 15 with a lecture by Petho and cocktail party is $150.
