Hi Duana, Long time reader, first time emailer here. I've been writing this email in my head for so long I hope I can cover everything now that I'm actually sitting down to write it! I'm pregnant with our third, due in August. We are not finding out the gender and didn't with our first two, Anna Grace and Etta (Elizabeth) Jane. Full Article

Sasha Finds: Round Towels

The round towel. It's become the summer staple, and dudes, seriously, I didn't want to get caught up in the hype, but f-ck it, I can't deny its radness.  Cause shhhheeeetttt, how has it taken this goddamn long for people to realize that the normal towel, the rectangular kind, sucks in comparison? Like, no joke I want to spread eagle my ass on the beach and not be confined to some tiny piece of fabric. Full Article

The problem with sheer, always, is what the f-ck you wear underneath. What I don’t understand about this sheer dress is why the top doesn’t seem to be a problem but the bottom had to be addressed by black underwear. I guess the answer is because there’s no sticker that can cover a pussy. Full Article

I first saw this dress from behind. And was interested. It’s the cap sleeve. I’ll always care about a cap sleeve. But then she turned around and it’s a mess. How could one dress have such a different personality in the back than it does in the front. It’s like two entirely different species! Full Article

Hey Duana! Well, we have a tri-cultural doozy on our hands. My husband and I are both originally from the Balkans, I grew up in Canada, he in Sweden. And Sweden is where we live now. We have a son already, and are expecting a baby girl in July. We really struggled with my son's name, it was important to us that the name was at the very least pronounceable in all three of our 'cultures' and we didn't want to settle for very traditional names, got a lot of unsolicited recommendations for Phillip, Alexander etc. Full Article

One white dress, one red dress, both plunging necklines. And she looks great, no shade. But it gets boring back to back like that, at least to me. Like, one or the other, you know? Which was probably what happened – she couldn’t decide which one was better.   Full Article

I thought, at first, this was a romper. And if it were a romper, I’d say she should have gone a size up. People have an aversion to wearing anything above their true size. And it often gets in the way of good style. I repeat: what happened to January Jones’s style?! Romper or not, these shorts could use an extra inch in length. Full Article

This is a great print, a city lights photograph, perhaps, transferred to material. I love it. And it would also be great in a pair of pants. The design of this top is great too, with the two pleats coming down on each side creating some extra movement around the waist.  Full Article

Duana Names: Can Perfect Strike Twice?

Hi Duana, My sister-in-law and brother are getting closer to their due date but are no closer to deciding on a name. Daughter #2 arrives this July, and although they're completely in love with their first daughter's name (Elise), they're struggling to come up with a second name that they love equally as much. Full Article
