A-Line Waist

These dresses are made to fit your waist and then gradually flare out towards the hem. A-line dresses are excellent for minimizing thighs, hips, and midsections while pulling the eyes to your bust. This style of dress is a great fit for almost any body type. There's a reason why so many brides settle on A-Line dresses for their big day! With plenty of varieties, this is a kind of dress that you can wear again and again.

Empire Waist

Like the A-Line style, empire dresses are made to fit through your bust. Rather than creating a distinctly angular shape like the A-Line, the Empire style flows from the bust down. This is another kind of dress that fits many body types. From curvy to apple body shapes, the Empire draws focus to your bust and minimizes everything else. For lovely ladies on the shorter side, this style defines your silhouette, especially if you choose a maxi length dress.

Drop Waist

A throwback to the roaring 20's style flapper dresses, Drop Waist dresses look best on lean, athletic bodies that don't have too many curves in the hip area. The key to pulling off a Drop Waist style dress is to ensure that it's not hugging you. This dress is best worn when it is able to hang freely on your body.

Once you know the kind of waist that fits your body type, it's time to find your shape. A few of our most popular dress shapes include:

Fit & Flare Dresses in Historic Savannah

Any clothing store for women in Historic Savannah, GA, worth its salt, will have plenty of fit & flare dresses for you to try.

Shift Dresses in Historic Savannah

Shift dresses are typically rectangular in shape and tend to be comfy and forgiving since they aren't fitted. Also called a column dress, the shift dress is a great choice for polished professionals needing a conservative, fashionable outfit for work.
These dresses look fabulous on women with athletic, lean shapes and women with an apple-like figure. This kind of dress doesn't work well with a belt, so ladies with an hourglass figure may not be able to show off their curves in a shift. Try pairing this dress with a nice pair of heels for a beautiful new look!

Wrap Dresses in Historic Savannah

Wrap dresses are one of the most popular styles on the market, because they give ladies of most shapes and sizes a flattering, fashionable dress option.
If you have an hourglass, apple, or generally curvy body shape, you're going to love wrap dresses. This style of dress offers a natural waist while placing emphasis on your bust. Wrap dresses give you a balanced silhouette and, with a knee-length fit, are great for any type of color or style, both day and nightwear.

How to Find the Right Fit for Your Women's Top

When choosing a women's top for your outfit, you have to consider how comfortable, confident, and beautiful you will feel. The best way to feel your best in an outfit is to make sure it fits correctly. To get started, you'll want to take your measurements. For most women's tops, the best areas to focus on are your hips, waist, and chest.

  • Hip Measurements: Measuring your hips is fairly easy. Take your measuring tape and use it to wrap around the widest area of your hips.
  • Waist Measurements: Take your measuring tape and place it at the very top of your hip bone. Wrap it all the way around your body. Try to keep your measuring tape in line with your belly button. For the most accurate measurements, stand up straight and breathe normally.
  • Chest Measurements: For an accurate chest measurement, take the end of your measuring tape and place it on the fullest area of your bust. From there, wrap the tape around your body, under your armpits, and around the blades of your shoulders. Then, wrap the tape tightly from the back of your body to the front, where you started.

For Do Savannah

War has broken out in Europe, with anger and shock felt across multiple continents.

As his family is besieged abroad, one American man does all he can to bring his relatives home and out of harm's way. Sound familiar? This daring tale could be another day in the life of families trying to flee the current conflict in Eastern Europe.

Instead, this story takes place a century earlier in "We'll Meet Again" the daring new musical set to make its world premiere on Friday at The Historic Savannah Theatre.

That’s Entertainment!:Historic Savannah Theatre celebrates 20 years under current regime

From the editor:Savannah's arts and culture scene is set to expand and evolve. We'll be here to document it.

The World War II-era play follows an Opelika, Ala., resident who helps his Jewish relatives in Germany escape to America.

The theater company was approached by playwright, Jim Harris, about producing the world premiere, whom they knew from producing his previous show, "Civil War Voices," in 2013.

"We'll Meet Again" follows a similar motif, being built around a true story, with music from the time period giving the audience a glimpse of what life was really like in the late 1930s and early 1940s.

The show was originally scheduled to have its premiere at the Barter Theatre in Virginia, one of the final shows directed by artistic director, Richard Rose, before he retired. But the COVID pandemic halted production and the show was put on hold.

Mike Zaller of The Savannah Theatre said they feel lucky that Rose was so passionate about the show and its themes, and has come to Savannah to direct the show and finally see it come to life on stage.

"We actually were scheduled to perform the show in January 2022, but made the choice to postpone due to the COVID spike at the time, and are excited to finally be able to share this story," Zaller added.

Honoring our military's heroes:It is never too late to get it right

Zaller also performs in the musical in a challenging role, portraying a Nazi party official who makes life very difficult for the lead family as they try to leave Germany.

"I'm honestly not sure how much enjoyment I will get while performing the role, but I hope I will feel accomplished by helping the audience see what these people were able to overcome in a difficult situation," Zaller shared.

"In the end, this is a true story about living life to the fullest, despite the challenges that we face along the way," he said.

The production features a mixture of old and new faces to the Savannah Theatre. With the director coming in from out of town, the company hosted auditions regardless of actors' previous Savannah Theatre history.

This led to some familiar faces in the show with Mike Zaller, Shannon Zaller, Richie Cook and Jabre Brown all being cast, along with bringing in actors with connections to the director and writer, and adding a few new local actors including Ashley Frazell-Cook, Dani Vazquez, Truman Nash, and Ethan Brandon. The new musical also features a born-and-raised Savannah actor, Jeremy Kole, who has come in from New York to perform.

Zaller said it's always a challenge recreating a time period for the stage, especially one like the World War II era, which so many people have a picture in their head of what it should be.

Good ships Savannah:Recently commissioned warship just latest vessel to carry city's name

The production company took great care in recreating the scenes, the sounds, and the look and feel of wartime Germany, Zaller noted.

Though set in a heartbreaking time, The Savannah Theatre team says they hope the message of perseverance and the importance of family will resonate.

"We hope the audience will take away that even through the difficulties and hardships of the era, there was triumph for the ideas of freedom and respect for all people to live their lives," Zaller shared.

With everything currently happening on the world stage, "We'll Meet Again" carries a timeless message, one that could be applied to modern European and American families grappling once again with war.

"While there were certainly heartaches along the way, the Allied victory in the war gave people the ability to take the life they are given and try to live it to the fullest," Zaller added. "It's a lesson that is always worth being reminded of and hopefully never forgotten!"

Celebrated Chef Mashama Bailey brings signature southern flair to Delta flights

Starting this week, Delta customers departing Atlanta will be treated to Southern-inspired meals designed by Chef Mashama Bailey, winner of the 2022 James Beard Foundation’s “Outstanding American Chef” award and Executive Chef and co-founder of The Grey, an award-winning Southern restaurant in historic downtown Savannah, Georgia.Photo credit: Nydia Blas“Delta’s roots in Georgia’s rich culture are a signature part of ...

Starting this week, Delta customers departing Atlanta will be treated to Southern-inspired meals designed by Chef Mashama Bailey, winner of the 2022 James Beard Foundation’s “Outstanding American Chef” award and Executive Chef and co-founder of The Grey, an award-winning Southern restaurant in historic downtown Savannah, Georgia.

“Delta’s roots in Georgia’s rich culture are a signature part of our own history, so partnering with the team at The Grey felt like the right fit from the start,” said Kristen Manion Taylor, S.V.P. – In-Flight Service. “The innovative, Southern culinary experience Chef Bailey has propelled into the spotlight is something our culinary teams have admired for some time, and we know our customers are going to be wowed by the menu she’ll be delivering on board.”

Chef Bailey’s meals will be served exit-Atlanta for lunch and dinner in domestic First Class on flights where hot food is served. Additionally, International Delta One customers departing Atlanta will have the option to pre-select unique menu items designed by the chef in advance of their flight.

“It's an honor to partner with Delta to bring the foods I grew up on in my mother and grandmother’s kitchen to the skies,” said Chef Bailey. “At The Grey, we work to keep Southern, African-American food alive and well by melding those rich flavors with new techniques and cuisines from around the world. The menu for Delta customers takes local, in-season ingredients from the Low Country to new heights.”

Chef Bailey’s new menu builds on Delta’s award-winning onboard dining experience featuring some of America’s most sought-after restaurants and chefs, including Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo and Danny Meyer’s Union Square Events.

Customers will enjoy Chef Bailey’s Port City Southern menu featuring dishes similar to those served at The Grey: a flounder and oyster dish with fumé blanc, green apple, potato, bok choy and turnips; short ribs with kanni sauce and smoked collard greens; vegan vegetable tagine with roasted sweet potato topped with a chermoula sauce and, for dessert, buttermilk cornmeal tres leches with candied kumquats and mandarin oranges.

Under the direction of co-founders Chef Bailey and Managing Partner Johno Morisano, The Grey has become a must-visit destination for foodies who travel from far and wide to sample Chef Bailey’s take on Port City Southern food. With a recent expansion into Austin, Texas, the team at The Grey is at the forefront of the history and advocacy of the Southern foodways.

Chef Bailey and Morisano both serve on the global airline’s newly formed Delta Culinary Council, where they help guide Delta’s culinary strategy alongside a collective of chefs and industry experts. Additionally, Chef Bailey is featured on Delta Studio, the industry-leading seatback entertainment platform, as part of the airline’s partnership with MasterClass. In the 10-lesson class, she dives into the rich layers of cooking Southern food – its history, flavors, dishes and techniques – and shares her approach to preserving traditions while reinventing classic recipes.

MORE SEASONAL FIRST CLASS MENUS

Delta is also rolling out more seasonal menu refreshes across its network starting this week. First Class customers departing Los Angeles will enjoy a new vegan antipasti plate from Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo with roasted broccoli, romesco dip, yellow squash, gigante beans, red onion and mushroom. And customers flying out of Boston and Detroit will be treated to new menu items like avocado toast with ricotta, figs and truffle honey; prawn salad with cocktail sauce, hard boiled eggs and Kalamata olives; and a braised beef tart with potato mash, horseradish mousseline and thyme jus.

New menu items on other routes include a Korean-style Impossible® burger with mushroom and scallion bulgogi topping; chickpea, potato and spinach chana masala, roasted cauliflower with cilantro, basmati rice and naan; and for dessert, decadent chocolate chunk and sea salt cookies from Bell’s Cookie Co.

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - Ten years ago, a house over in the Cuyler-Brownsville neighborhood underwent a major transformation.

Tuesday, the Historic Savannah Foundation placed a historic marker on the home, where W.W. Law once lived.

“Thank you so much for all the work that you have done sir for bringing back this house.”

Most restored homes here help maintain Savannah’s sense of history. Few reach as deeply into the city’s heart as the bungalow at 710 West Victory Drive does.

“My realtor called and said I think I have a house for you. It needs to be saved,” Troy Williams said.

Eight years ago, Troy Williams bought a vacant, dilapidated Cuyler-Brownsville home where W.W, Law had lived for half a century and restored it to preserve and honor the memory of Savannah’s renowned Civil Rights leader.

It was as much passion as project, one that the Historic Savannah Foundation has now recognized with a plaque honoring the historic value of the property.

“It’s a tribute to him. Nothing has changed in the house since he lived in it,”

“The goal is that the marker helps to say that a great man lived here, great work was done here the things we see today, the Beach Institute, the Civil Rights,” Mayor Van Johnson said.

Museum, Historic Savannah. These are ideas and concepts he worked on and this was his office. This is where he worked every day.

Williams has rented the house to four sets of renters since 2015. But it has always been Mr. Law’s home. The designation ensures that it always will be.

“I think it’s very important that people, wherever they live in the city, need to know who came first the W.W. Law Center is named for him on the East side, but who knew he grew up in Cuyler-Brownsville? I grew up in Cuyler-Brownsville. We had great neighbors, but now the neighbors who live here today will know who came before them,” Vaughnette Goode Walker said.

Williams has restored 50 homes in Savannah. He was drawn to this one because Mr. Law also was one of Savannah’s first and most committed preservationists, which the marker confirms.

“It’s important to me because I want people to know and wonder who he was. Because they’ll drive by and say that’s the W.W. Law House. But they need to know what he actually did to appreciate the house.

“It will cause young people to walk by the house and say ‘who was W.W. Law?’ And it will make them ask the question about the great man and the significance he had here in Savannah.”

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) — A 7-year-old Savannah boy is in a fight for his life with a community rallying around him.

By all accounts, you can call Grayson Cronin your normal, everyday little boy. But what’s going on inside of him is anything but normal.

“He’s a fighter. He’s a fighter and he’s doing well,” said Grayson’s grandmother Leigh Griner.

Grayson has a genetic condition called Adrenoleukodystrophy or ALD. Simply put, the disease deteriorates the brain and could lead to eventual death.

“As the disease progresses, it attacks the brain, particularly the white matter of the brain. Depending on which area gets the worst attack those kids with ALD, a lot of them it attacks the part of the brain that deals with their eyesight, their hearing,” Griner said.

Right now, Grayson and his father are living full-time in Minnesota so he can have the medical care he needs. That includes a life-saving bone marrow transplant.

“We were so thankful. He’s got a new chance at life. Yes, we are very thankful and we do know we’ve turned a corner,” Griner told WSAV. “But also the doctors have made his parents and the rest of us very aware that this is the most dangerous part of the transplant coming.”

Grayson’s brother Nathan also has a form of the disease. A lingering stomach virus put Nathan Cronin in the hospital earlier this year, and that’s what led the family to find out both boys have ALD.

“If Nathan had not been very ill, been diagnosed at that time, Grayson probably would not have been diagnosed in time to receive this life-saving treatment. The time was ticking away quickly,” Griner said. “We kind of give Nathan credit for saving Grayson’s life.”

Nathan has become an advocate of sorts for his little brother as an older brother often does. It’s a strong brotherly bond that keeps the boys connected through one of their favorite video games while they’re hundreds of miles apart.

“On Roblox, we’re friends – me and Grayson. When we’re on the phone we can video chat and we can play Roblox together,” said Nathan Cronin.

Grayson’s medical costs and care are mounting. His church family is helping where they can and a GoFundMe has topped $26,000.

“It’s way more encouraging than we ever thought it would be. Also, it’s more needed than we thought we would need,” Griner told WSAV.

A little boy’s story is pulling at the heartstrings of so many now pushing them to pay it forward for someone they’re probably never met just because it’s the right thing to do.

“The support that we’ve received has changed our lives. We’ve all become more humble and more appreciative. We’ve learned that so many people love us that we didn’t even know remembered us,” Griner said.

As Grayson inches along a lengthy road to recovery, it’s a Bible verse that drives him and his family hanging on the wall at home.

“Your mantra can be like Grayson. Be strong and courageous do not be afraid. Grayson is a brave child and I think we could all learn from that. I’m definitely learning from it,” said Griner.

If you’re looking for a way to pay it forward, you can donate to help the family’s medical costs here. .

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - A new homeowner found a blast from the past found on his property and now a group of preservationists are working to share it with everyone.

A big part of our transportation of the past has been under wraps in more ways than one on Isle of Hope until now.

“So it’s truly a streetcar, and they started back in the late 1800s, 1869 and was the first trip from Savannah to Isle of Hope”

Tiffany Alewine of the Isle of Hope Historical Association explains a little of how two street cars wound up in someone’s backyard.

“Some newlyweds actually took up residence in these street cars approximately 193, but you know they were fully functional as a home as a cottage,” said Alewine.

In a recent photo, you can see the nose of the Birney Safety Car, the brand of the streetcar, peeking out the front door in what the cottage looked like before being deconstructed.

“Honestly as a preservationist and obviously as an organization, the historical organization that we are, we could not be prouder, to be the stewards of these streetcars and look forward to obviously many more generations enjoying them,” Alewine says.

After the homeowner notified the Historical Association a crew came in and decluttered the cars Katie Fitzhugh of Repurpose Savannah helped.

“And there was a lot of excitement. This is nothing like any of the other jobs we’ve ever done,” Assistant Director of Repurpose Savannah Katie Fitzhugh said.

Repurpose Savannah usually salvages building materials. In this case - they were saving the buildings, aka the cars.

“I feel like their my baby because, well they’re Savannah’s baby, but it’s fantastic because who would expect to find these street cars just in the middle of Isle of Hope built into a home,” Fitzhugh said.

The streetcars will go to Savannah Trolley, get some TLC and eventually one will come back to the island for public display.

“It’s definitely going to be a long term project, but the end result is well worth it,” Alewine said.

After restoration one of the cars will find a more public home back on the island.

“You find everything there is to find in Savannah and this falls in your lap,” Alewine said.
