Duana Names: In Which I Expose My (former) Self

Duana Posted by Duana at January 29, 2016 19:56:53 January 29, 2016 19:56:53

Hi Duana, We’re expecting our second baby early February and are searching for a name. Gender is a surprise, and we’ve gone through the list of names we had for our first and don’t really like them anymore, so we’re back at square one. Our first is named Penelope, Nell for short, and we’d like to have a longer name that can also have a cute nickname to go with it. Full Article

I don’t know about this dress. In theory it’s a good idea. But it looks really cheap, doesn’t it look cheap? The ruffles look like they were ripped off a bridesmaid dress in the 80s. The material underneath that covers her body looks like the table cloth at a Chinese restaurant. I don’t think she’s feeling it either. Full Article

I was a lot more excited about this when I thought it was a jumpsuit, or a top and pants combination. It’s just a dress though which makes it less special to me. Also I think these are the wrong shoes for it. Not only because of that lift along the back of the ankle but also the dark suede seems incongruous. Full Article

The pattern here reminds me of honeycomb. Do you see it too? Honeycomb and bees are what f-ck me up about nature. It’s f-cked! Those hexagons are perfect – and it’s BEES, not machines, that buzz around creating them. When I think about it too hard it freaks me out. Anyway, this looks great on Annie, and it looks even better than her husband, Adam, did not belly-cup her on the red carpet. Full Article

Duana Names: Unlikely Inspiration

Hi Duana, I wrote to you once before, a couple of years ago. Sadly, that pregnancy ended in a loss. When we conceived again, I couldn't allow myself to plan for the baby for a long time. But here we are, 7 months into a challenging pregnancy, and baby girl has proven to be tough and resilient. Full Article

Dear Hayley, I love(d) being outside - rock climbing, skiing, hiking, paddling. That's what I did to escape, have fun and be with friends. But the last few years I have spent most of my time sick or injured or recovering. In 2012, I tore the vertebral artery in my neck in a freak ski accident (getting off the chairlift) and had a stroke. Full Article

I love the turtleneck under a shift look. I love black and white checks. I f-cking love these kicks. They remind me of Stella McCartney’s platform Oxfords which I would have bought if I wasn’t on a feng shui shoe ban (it ends in 2 weeks) only they don’t have that layer of cork. These are way better. Full Article

Sasha's INTO IT: BOGS boots

Sasha Posted by Sasha at January 26, 2016 20:05:48 January 26, 2016 20:05:48

I'll be honest, I've always snobbed out a bit on the boot brand, BOGS. I just never thought it was my demo, but I'll eat my stupid-ass words because I just found the winter boots of alllllll winter boots.  I give you the Prairie... Full Article

Without the boots, it’d be a different thing entirely. Like a school trustees’ meeting. With the boots, I’m digging it. But how about this sweater she has on with the hearts around the collar? SO cute.  Full Article

Hi Duana! After months of being totally stuck on a name for our baby girl, my gf suggested I write into you and get some much needed HELP! We already have a little boy, and after being in boy-land for so long I am really struggling to find a name for a little lady. Basically my problem is I HATE everything! My poor husband, family and friends have listed hundreds of names, and I am just a no, no, no. Full Article
