I really enjoyed where Lupita Nyong’o was seated last night at the SAGs. Right in front. Sort of like where Oprah was sitting at the Golden Globes. Like so many other attendees, Lupita was in sparkles. Grey in some light but with a metallic blue tone on the carpet. I would like this dress a lot more if not for that layer of black sheerness covering it and then sweeping and floating around her towards the bottom. Full Article

I want to say something that Ruby would say on black-ish but I think that would be disrespectful. Ruby’s trademark phrases and expressions are not for me. They are meant for me to enjoy, not to borrow. So, if you watch the show, please, as you’re reading this post, hear her voice when you flip through these photos. Full Article

Have you been watching grown-ish? It gets better and better every episode. And they’re really going for it in how they’re presenting college life. This is not “safe” afternoon programming for innocent adolescents. These are young people pulling all-nighters, partying more than they’re studying, and casually dropping “abortion” into conversations. Full Article

Sasha Finds: Winter swimwear

Sasha Posted by Sasha at January 19, 2018 20:33:13 January 19, 2018 20:33:13

If you live on the east coast then you have no feeling in any of your appendages because holy f-ck this winter has been so damn cold. I’m desperately trying to figure out where to go to eat some vitamin d, but in the meantime it’s time to swimsuit shop.     I’ve always been pretty basic with my swimwear. Full Article

I’m out of breath typing this because we are OUT. OF. TIME. and maybe it makes no sense to be winded when I’m not doing anything but typing, but we’ve reached full-scale freak out. Writing this for my friend who is having her baby boy by next Thursday (induced that day if he doesn’t come on his own) because this name business makes her rock in a fetal position and murmur, “I don’t know I don’t know I don’t know. Full Article

It’s January 17. I know it’s early. But I’m going to have a hard time for the rest of the year finding another pair of pants that are as amazing as the pair Marion Cotillard is wearing here.  Everything about these pants is my life.  I’m all about the high waist. Full Article

 Happy New Year Hayley! I am going into my 39th year, and starting to see the light with my youngest of 3 entering kindergarten in September, so seeing this as a year of new challenges for me fitness-wise. In the last couple years I have found a new love in mountain biking. I got myself a pretty good bike in 2016 and this past year, dabbled in a few local mountain bike races. Full Article

I am ordinarily not a fan of taffeta. There are better materials, less limiting materials. Taffeta can usually only be one thing – a princess prom gown which… I mean the princess prom gown, I guess, has stood the test of time, so I suppose it will never go away – but when you’re on a red carpet, why not graduate out of the prom?  That said, if it has to be taffeta, black taffeta is probably the least offensive because it can absorb and dull the light and make the dents that inevitably show up on taffeta less obvious. Full Article

There are a lot of things I love about this pantsuit on Tessa Thompson. First, this shade of champagne, or whatever you want to call it, is a great colour on her. Also, right now, I’m all about finding an all-sequin tuxedo for an upcoming event. So I’m really happy to see that they’re out there. Full Article

What, you’ve never made a bad pun when you’re titling something? Look, sometimes it’s just how it is, OK?   But we get to revisit a few titles as I have a great backlog of updates. First up, an update on the family dilemma presented in SOCCERSTAR... Full Article
