The Sharps rule over a beach fashion empire, with their Lucy Love clothing line and the Holly Sharp Boutique clothing shop.

Ever since Mademoiselle boutique owner Rima Bedevian was a little girl, she has dreamed of opening her own little shop. ?I?ve always been interested in fashion, ever since I was a little girl,? Bedevian said. ?So I decided to open one up in La Crescenta, since we don?t have much choices up here as far as stores are concerned.? Mademoiselle, at 3442 Foothill Blvd. in La Crescenta, had its grand opening in April and caters to a European sense of fashion. Its modern decor features polished hardwood floors with pink walls partly covered with black and white damask wallpaper.

It was a commonly held belief while growing up that I was the worst dresser in my entire family. Flip through one of my mom's family albums, and you'll know what an accomplishment that was. Even my brother Luis, who almost never left his room and was rarely seen in anything but overalls, was considered a snazzier dresser than me. I'd wear anything. Polka dots, plaids, polyester or polyurethane -- if I saw it lying around and I needed to get dressed, I'd put it on. To give you an idea of my fashion sense back then, my favorite outfit for about a year was a tattered beige winter coat and the blue dress pants my mother bought me for my sister's wedding.

L'aureole, a philanthropic women's club, celebrated its Perennial Rose Luncheon and Fashion Show in grand style earlier this month. To pamper the guests, ladies were shuttled by golf cart to the entrance of the La Cañada Flintridge Country Club. Much easier on one's feet than climbing the hill. President Jeannine Jones gave a spirited welcome. Master of ceremonies duties were handled expertly by Harold Scoggins, chief of the Glendale Fire Department. And since proceeds went to the Glendale Salvation Army's Zone program, a positive experience that keeps youths busy after school, six participants told the crowd what they've learned from it. Introduced by Lt. Joshua Sneed, one high school girl said she started with the program in second grade.

BURBANK - Crescenta Valley High's girls' water polo team began defense of its CIF Southern Section Division V championship with a confident attitude - and with good reason. Downey, the Falcons' first-round opponent, was the third-place team from the San Gabriel Valley League, and had to win a wild-card match on Tuesday just to play on Wednesday. The Falcons knew Downey would not have offer much of a challenge. They were right. PHOTOS: CV vs. Downey girls' water polo teams compete in CIF first-round match Crescenta Valley scored five unanswered goals in a four-minute span of the first quarter and cruised to a 13-3 victory at Burbank High.

PASADENA - Glendale High's girls' basketball team won its first league game of the season in convincing fashion and faced little resistance in doing so. Granted, the win came against a rebuilding Pasadena squad that has already seen two head coaches this season and carries no seniors on the roster. Still, Nitros Coach Tania Adary hopes the win will instill some confidence in her team as the season progresses and jumpstart an offense that struggled in losses to Crescenta Valley and Burroughs.

CULVER CITY - It wasn't easy, but the Glendale Community College football team got it done. Down four on the road at West Los Angeles College, Vaqueros quarterback Sean Murphy found tight end Tanner Mays on an out route off of play action for the go-ahead touchdown strike from three yards out with about 29 seconds left. PHOTOS: Glendale College vs. West L.A. College football “It scared me,” Murphy said. “I thought I overthrew him, but luckily he has long arms and he got it.” Glendale held on to defeat West L.A., 24-21, to keep the Wildcats winless, while snapping an 11-game American Division Pacific Conference losing streak of its own. GCC, which lost to the Wildcats, 41-6, at home last season, improved to 3-3 overall, 1-2 in conference.

GLENDALE - Serene Snaer looked for the most vulnerable opponent and simply tried to attack her. Whether it was on a kill attempt or a set, the senior on the Glendale High girls' volleyball team had numerous opportunities to frustrate her cross-town rivals.

Sometimes you just don't feel like cooking. Dressing up to go out for dinner doesn't sound good either. Here's an interesting option. Bring home a pre-made Persian Armenian feast from Old Fashion Deli & Market. Entrees, appetizers, salads and rice are lined up and ready for purchase in small and large containers. Throw in some fresh bread, maybe a ripe melon from the colorful produce section, a bottle of something refreshing from the beverage area and you've got dinner. I first noticed this cute market while sitting on the sidelines of a game at Glorietta Park across the street.

At 106 years of age, Gertrude Ness could not be faulted for deciding to sit this one out - modeling in the annual fashion show of the Patrons Club of Glendale Community College. Honoring the club's 65th birthday, some 250 faculty, administrative and other staff members gathered for a Castaway Restaurant lunch and the fashion show, sans Gertrude. On Friday, right before lunch was served, Patrons President Carolyn Payne announced to her audience that this year the club awarded $23,500 toward 30 scholarships and 30 grants-in-aid to deserving students.

Many people around town remember the car shows hosted by National Charity League and the Glendale Motor Car Dealers Assn. But even longtime residents might not realize that they were not the first of their kind. The first known showing of new model cars in Glendale was in 1925. That's when the newly formed car dealers association, now up to 18 dealerships, displayed the latest cars. The seven-day show was a great success, with Assn. President Lyman T. Clark leading the way. But it appears that show may have been a one-year wonder; no account of similar car shows can be found.

PASADENA - With the Maranatha High boys' tennis team potentially in position to play two playoff matches in as many days, it embraced the challenge. The Minutemen entered the CIF Southern Section Division V playoffs fresh off finishing second in the Olympic League and with several players performing well in the league tournament last week. More importantly, they appeared to be well conditioned. Maranatha used its physical preparation as an advantage en route to a convincing 13-5 win against visiting Nogales in a wild-card match at Muir High.
