Off-the-shoulder is a really nice look for Drew Barrymore. And I quite like the sheer sleeves on her too. So my one complaint with this dress is that I wish it wasn’t waisted. Instead of putting in a waist, I would have wanted it to fall straight down, in a column. The waist makes it seem as though the dress was something else to begin with and the sleeves were added later. Full Article

A beautifully tailored black suit will never not be exciting for me. This is a perfect black suit. The jacket sits perfectly on the shoulders, tapers perfectly at the waist, and hangs perfectly along her hips. The pants fall perfectly at the ankle. The bag is the perfect size to go with the perfect suit. Full Article

I’m not mad at that. Because this is suuuuuuuch a pretty dress on her. The print is lovely. And I quite like the way she’s matched her lip to the shoes. But mostly, it’s the neckline. Cut high and blunt straight across so that the shoulders and the sleeves are more defined.  Full Article

Hi Hayley, I just recently moved to Vermont - land of hills, mountains and great hiking everywhere. I've been looking forward to getting more in shape, but without fail, every hike starts okay - usually with an incline with varying degrees of steepness and then 5-8 minutes in, I'm wheezing, can't breathe, and normally need to stop soon after to catch my breath. Full Article

I mean, she’s Halle Berry so she looks incredible. But… can I say I’m kinda bored of her style? The exposed bra, the pants cut tight on the thigh and wider at the ankle… It’s kind of dated. Like Jennifer Aniston probably wore this exact same outfit 10 years ago. Full Article

This is a heinous outfit. And, my God, these are heinous pants. The all-over blush is a problem. But it’s the blush satin pants that are so objectionable to me I’m actually angry. There is no excuse for this unless you are Mariah Carey and about to get in a bathtub and ruin the outfit. Full Article

Hi Duana, We are in desperate need of name help. We are (unexpectedly) expecting our third child this winter and are completely stumped on a name. We don't know the gender and have two sons already named Kadence (the K...I know, I know but I was young and it was 2006) and Cash. Both had family names as middle names, and our last name is hyphenated with 3 syllables total and ending in the "eee" sound. Full Article

Hi Duana! I LOVE your column and your name nerd advice (and your name, to be honest). I also loved your book – how we feel about our names is such a study in human hope and behaviour, I can hardly believe that we went this long without the name nerd column in our lives. I have a name that has a completely wacky spelling so I totally live by my Starbucks name on paper – thank you for not making me feel badly about this. Full Article
