How the Cold-Shoulder Top Became a Vaccine Fashion Trend

Look out, Zoom shirt. Here comes the vaccine top.

As millions of more Americans become eligible for the coronavirus vaccine, fashion-minded folks are giving extra consideration to what they will wear for their coveted appointments. And as with Zoom, it’s an above-the-waist style story, especially if there’s a vaccine selfie — call it a “vaxxie” — involved.

Some have taken their deliberating to TikTok, asking viewers to choose. Jane Tsui, 24, a perky cosmetics chemist in Irvine, Calif., shared three bare-armed looks earlier this month, including a spaghetti-strap camisole hidden under a “classy” gray blazer and a one-shoulder leopard-print top that offers “lots of arm real estate,” she said. “Take your shot.”

But the emerging vaccine-ready top seems to be the cold-shoulder top, thanks to Dolly Parton. On March 2, the 75-year-old country music star posted a four-minute video across her social media channels, getting her first shot

FedEx’s profit nearly triples as online shopping grows

NEW YORK (AP) — FedEx said Thursday that its profit nearly tripled in its most recent quarter, despite winter weather that hobbled some of its facilities.

Online shopping has surged during the pandemic as more people avoid going inside stores. That has made package delivery companies like FedEx in high demand.

CEO Frederick Smith said he expects demand to “remain very high for the foreseeable future.”

Besides delivering shoppers’ orders, the company has also been shipping COVID-19 vaccines, which Smith called “the most important work in the history of FedEx.”

The Memphis, Tennessee-based company reported net income of $892 million for the three months ending Feb. 28, compared with $315 million in the same period the year before.

Adjusted earnings came to $3.47 per share, beating Wall Street expectations, according to Zacks Investment Research.

FedEx said icy weather last month hindered several of its facilities, including some of its largest

Chillhouse Pivots to Face and Body Care, as Spa Remains at Limited Capacity

Chillhouse is hoping to recoup sales lost due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Following success via its Chill Tips press-on nails, Chillhouse is releasing a collection of day and night face oils and body oil mists. All four products are priced at $48 and will be sold via Chillhouse’s website, SoHo flagship and Urban Outfitters.

“It really started with me asking myself, ‘if I can bottle a spa, what would that look like?’” said Cyndi Ramirez-Fulton, Chillhouse’s founder and chief executive officer. “When you go into a spa, you feel a little drab and in a slump, like you need some invigoration. When you come out, you’re always covered in oils and feel so happy and rejuvenated. That’s exactly what I wanted to create for our first line of products.”

Ramirez-Fulton declined to offer sales projections for Chillhouse’s body care collection, though she expects the line to “outpace the monthly sales
