Answer:  WEARING OFF

(Some of these crazy outfits, besides being bizarre, can also – very often – be dangerous!  In the higher photo above, the poor girl is taking a tumble.  The combination of the crazy high, platform high-heels, and the flowing  wrap skirt/cape thing appear to be a bit much for her.

All of today’s clue words  are old favorites.  Three of the jumbles came up as new, with “kenal” having definitely been used before.  The answer letter layout made for an exquisite jumble!  It gave nothing away.  It looks like Jeff has a real flair for high fashion!  Who knows?  Maybe he’ll even give up his day job!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 07/19/17

Image result for James Thomson

Real glory springs from the silent conquest of ourselves; and without that the conqueror is naught but the first slave.”   —   James Thomson

(Overcoming our biases and preconceptions, and or other faults???  You know me, folks.  Poetry is not my strong suit.  I’m guessing the line is from the James Thomson above, but I guess it could be from the slightly later one.  Does anyone know which one this line belongs to?  The quotation – including the author’s name – uses every letter but K, X and Z, which I think is pretty cool!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
