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

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

This is a great dress on Rachel Bilson. And definitely improved by the belt. If I had told you that this photo was from 2006, would you have believed me? Because I feel like it’s the same vibe –and that’s a criticism either. She’s dedicated to her style.  Full Article

I think I’ve emailed every stylist I know to join me in my search for these pants. They’re drop-crotch. So I’m in, obviously. They’re camo-print, I think? And I also think they might be sequined? Lord, please, please help me find them. They’re the most amazing pants I’ve ever seen. Full Article

I don’t use emojis. I know this makes me crusty ass c-nt, sorry. Anyway, this shirt on Alexa Chung is super cute. I see faces. But I feel like other people might see emojis. Which is what I’m afraid of going forward. That all the prints I like – animals, fruits, stars, etc – will be looked at as emojis. Full Article

Hi Duana, I am due in July and need major help! My husband and I are having twins after some struggles getting pregnant and are so happy to learn that they are a boy and a girl! Our daughter's name is giving us the most grief: the front runner name is Mireille, but we are not sure if we should go ahead with the name because our last name is Miller. Full Article
