My husband and I have a 3 month old baby. We kept the baby's name a secret until he was born, and we named him William James (first and middle name).  We loved both names and went back and forth on which would be the first and second, as we thought both ways sounded lovely. My husband's best friend and his wife were expecting when we had our baby, and on our first Skype call with them after Will was born, they told us that it was such a coincidence because they are going to name their son James William. Full Article

Sasha Finds: The Basket Bag

I wish I was someone who cared about bags and switching my bags out for different occasions and events but I’m not. I don’t care. I roll with the same bag for whatever and whenever. But if you’re a better bag lady than I am, then I’m sure you’ve already spotted that the latest trend is all about the basket bag. Full Article

I recently joined a new gym and with that comes with the "free session with a trainer" and while the session was informative and I can see some of the benefit of having a trainer (I committed to 12 sessions), I'm not sold on the long-term commitment, which seems like it's already in the works. Full Article

Duana Posted by Duana at May 24, 2017 20:30:06 May 24, 2017 20:30:06

Dear Duana, I need help, please and thanks! After being adamant that we weren’t going to have children – for years and years - at the age of 38, we realized that soon the decision wouldn’t be ours anymore so we decided to stop trying not to have a baby. Within 7 minutes, the decision was made and we were pregnant. Full Article

Dear Duana, Now to the matter at hand, we are in desperate need for a name! Our third child was born on May 14th, the names on our shortlist do not fit her and now we're sleep deprived and have no clue how to even to start a new name search. She's currently called Baby Girl by the doctor's office and that is just wrong. Full Article

Sasha Finds: Fashion politics

Now more than ever, fashion is merging with politics. We are starting to see that fashion can be an actual potent form of protest so I wanted to take this post to highlight three of my favorite brands. First up, I’ve been on the waitlist for this tee... Full Article

I’m obsessed with this striped top. It’s complicated – which is why I’m so obsessed with it. Because even with the one shoulder falling off, and the one dramatic sleeve, and the bow at the back, it still doesn’t feel overwhelming, not to me. And somehow the sequined skirt with a waist ruffle isn’t taking it over the top either? The shoes, however, are a problem. Full Article

Is it just me or did you think about Meryl Streep in Out Of Africa when you saw Tracee Ellis Ross in this suit? Obviously Tracee’s suit is way steezier in these times. But that’s definitely the vibe, non? I love how the jacket is blousing at the back from the belt. And I also love the cut of these pants, wide at the thigh and tapered at the ankle. Full Article

Hi Duana, I am in a real conundrum. We thought we were having a boy originally and had a name picked out no problem. My name pick for a girl was Margot Mabel with the last name L----c. Unfortunately.... my partner’s name is Marko which was pointed out to me rhymes exactly with my top name pick. Full Article
