Hi Duana, I am expecting our second child and while I had every intention to get feedback with the first, he made his debut a month early and I was still fully in denial I was to become a mother. He went nameless for 2 days in the hospital however we chose Simon William. We had it narrowed to Sebastian, Simon, Gabriel or Arthur (too weird with our last name) but truly, the list wasn't that short until a day after he was born and the shock had subsided. Full Article

Hi Duana, We are in desperate need of name advice for our second baby girl, due in December! I'm Indian, and my husband is American, and while I'd like a name that works in both contexts, I think it's more important that we just love the name. We were easily able to pick our first daughter's name, Annika, because we both just heard it and loved it and it fit all our 'requirements' about working in both cultures. Full Article

What a year Laura Dern has had. She began the year in Big Little Lies. She’s ending the year in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. In between those two posts there’s Twin Peaks and Good Time Girls and Downsizing and she shot the JT Leroy movie this summer. Oh, right, and she won an Emmy. And she’s been nominated for a Golden Globe and a SAG. Full Article

Certain “classic” dress shapes I could do without. For example, the wrap dress. I’m also not big on the sweetheart neckline that fits to the waist and then puffs out to the skirt.  Hana Mae Lee is wearing a “classic” dress. I don’t know what the word for it is but it’s been around forever – longish flutter sleeves, material loosely dropped across the chest, fitted through the torso, and bias to the bottom. Full Article

Duana, I have forever been infatuated with names, I love how much they say with so little. I have kept a list of names for years - not necessarily for potential children, but simply because I appreciate them. Now, faced with naming an actual human I'm coming up completely blank.  We have two weeks until the arrival of our sex-unknown babe and name panic is definitely setting in. Full Article

This is such a Maggie Gyllenhaal dress, isn’t it?  It’s a little old school. It’s glamourous, but slightly unconventional too.  Maggie was nominated yesterday for a Golden Globe for her work in The Deuce. I’m looking forward to seeing her on the carpet. I used to always be excited about Maggie on a red carpet. Full Article

You must be tired of me featuring Zendaya all the time in these LifeStyle posts but I can’t help it. She’s on a press tour. Every time Zendaya’s on a press tour every outfit is worth talking about. And how could I ignore this f-cking coat. Look at this coat! Green leather, slightly A-line, perfect length, and the houndstooth trim at the collar… !!!!!!!! It’s one of the best coats we’ve seen all year. Full Article

Hi Duana, My husband and I are pregnant with our first child and CANNOT agree on a name. More specifically, we cannot agree on a boy's name. (We aren't finding out the baby's sex.) He's convinced me of his choice for a girl - Eleanor Joan - mostly because I can already think of all the nicknames I'll surely call her: Nora, Ellie, EJ, Nellie. Full Article
