Dear Duana,  A psychic told my mother I would have two daughters. So obviously my first born is to be a boy babe.  My partner and I are both big on what I will call ‘dual naming’: a first name with gravitas and cool nickname to accompany it.  We live in London, England (I’m going to go further and specify we live in Hackney, which is hipster central with kids called Blue and Axel and Maple proliferating), I'm Canadian (with English family here and Scandi-Irish roots), he is English (solidly), and we are both criminal barristers (poor child). Full Article

Here’s how you fire up a pretty ordinary white, strapless dress. Or maybe the ordinary white, strapless dress was exactly what Hailee Steinfeld was looking for because this outfit was built around these boots. That’s what I would have done if I had access to these boots: you make the boots the main event and the only job of whatever’s on top is to get the f-ck out of the way. Full Article

One of my favourite Sarah Silverman looks of all time. Maybe my actual favourite. And it was the hair that caught me first because I actually didn’t see any red carpet shots of her until after the show. The hair though, this cute little baby pony at the crown, Jennifer Lopez does it a lot. I’ve been ripping her off for this hairstyle for years. Full Article

Right? I mean it’s not exactly shaped like a Grammy, but Ashanti’s dress feels inspired by the actual Grammy statue, doesn’t it?  I don’t know if I love the dress. But I do like that we don’t typically see a beaded gown that flares out like this at the waist. I’m so curious about how the skirt feels. Full Article

What a great look for Miley Cyrus on the red carpet last night. The black jumpsuit is Jean Paul Gaultier made special by the capelet/wrap situation around her shoulders with the ropes dangling off one shoulder. It looked amazing on her. So… I’m not sure why she changed.  I mean, I know. Full Article

Duana Posted by Duana at January 26, 2018 20:28:08 January 26, 2018 20:28:08

Hi Duana, My friend is having her fifth child and it's her first boy. They are all completely shocked -- they thought for sure it would be girl #5. They have no idea what they are looking for in a boy's name. To give you some idea of their style, here's the girl's names: Isabella Frances Carolina Genevieve Sophia Vivienne Luciana Juliette Mom's last name is Italian. Full Article

Smutty Fitness: Winter running shoes 

Hayley Posted by Hayley at January 26, 2018 20:19:45 January 26, 2018 20:19:45

Hi Hayley!  Hope 2018 is off to a good start for you. I'm based in Toronto and went for a run the other day when it was above zero and my feet got absolutely soaking wet. I was hoping you might be able to recommend your favourite pairs of winter running shoes. My routes are usually a mix of street and park running, so if there is a shoe that can keep my feet dry and warm, that works for both pavement and trails that would be ideal. Full Article

Dear Duana, My husband and I are expecting our first child, a baby boy in mid-January. Picking his name feels like a very big deal, and I would love to hear your feedback and perhaps some alternatives. In choosing the name, we are aiming to hit the sweet spot between known-but-not-too-familiar. Full Article

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
