Hi Duana! As a long-time lurker, I never expected to be writing in. We have twins, a boy and a girl, and have spent the years since they were born swearing that we were DONE. (With much snark and vigor, I'm afraid.) And now - we are, somehow, considering reversing our stance and trying for another. Full Article

This looked purple to me when I first saw it, and then in other light it’s blue. I’m saying purple and you can yell at me later. But whatever it is, I’m not sure either way if I like it with this pink coat. Do you?  Full Article

It’s puke green. Which is not necessarily a problem if it’s done well but it becomes even more glaringly puke green when…well… This was probably the worst dress of the night for me. Worst is always in relation to the subject’s potential to be best. And Julianne Moore is always coming to an award show with a lot of promise. Full Article

I’ll always love a shirt dress. Shirt dresses are typically not tight to the body. And this one, by Zac Posen, is all about the body. I just wish the nude underlay wasn’t there. And I wish she’d done something different with her hair. But I suspect those tendrils give her some security. Full Article

If you’ve been reading this blog consistently, you know I’ve been on this for a while: the January Jones style slide. January Jones used to bring it. She used to be AHEAD of it. Even if it what she wore wasn’t my favourite, at least it had imagination. At least it provoked. At least it wasn’t… seafoam. Full Article

Pink is tricky. Because it can go either infantile or… well… Saoirse’s pink lace, with that horrible hair, and the earrings, it’s like she’s from the 1950s and her parents are looking to marry her off. This is especially disappointing because we’ve seen before that Saoirse has an edge to her fashion instincts. Full Article

Instant hate. Everything about this dress offends me. Brie Larson is going to win an Oscar. And she’s wearing a dress that’s meant for a Euro billionaire’s yacht girl in Cannes. Then there’s that colour. Maybe the worst colour in fashion. I mean you have to basically be an icon to be able to manage this colour. Full Article

Duana Names: In Which I Expose My (former) Self

Hi Duana, We’re expecting our second baby early February and are searching for a name. Gender is a surprise, and we’ve gone through the list of names we had for our first and don’t really like them anymore, so we’re back at square one. Our first is named Penelope, Nell for short, and we’d like to have a longer name that can also have a cute nickname to go with it. Full Article

I don’t know about this dress. In theory it’s a good idea. But it looks really cheap, doesn’t it look cheap? The ruffles look like they were ripped off a bridesmaid dress in the 80s. The material underneath that covers her body looks like the table cloth at a Chinese restaurant. I don’t think she’s feeling it either. Full Article

I was a lot more excited about this when I thought it was a jumpsuit, or a top and pants combination. It’s just a dress though which makes it less special to me. Also I think these are the wrong shoes for it. Not only because of that lift along the back of the ankle but also the dark suede seems incongruous. Full Article
