I appreciate that Kate Hudson is showing us something a little different here and not a Versace dress with cut-outs and pantyhose holding it together. But I’m not sure if I like the way this sequined skirt is falling. And I don’t think I’m into the fabric combination between the sequins and the white on top. Full Article

I hate this dress. I feel like Hilary Swank could do better than this dress, a Sofia Vergara dress. Also, where the dress stops, just below the knee, and these shoes and where the strap sits, I would have made a different choice.   Full Article

Hi Hayley, I recently started a new job where the office has a gym (cardio equipment, free weights, exercise balls, etc.) that is available for use. I have half an hour to spend working out at lunch and am looking for some suggestions about how to maximize my time. I tend to get a bit bored of just cardio equipment, and am looking for ways to mix up my workouts. Full Article

It’s red and it gives you some side breast and there are ruffles arranged to look like they’ve been slashed so I feel like this might be a popular look for many of you. But I hate it. I hate how jarring the black ribbon looks at the back. I hate how sharply the black shoes contrast at the bottom. Full Article

Duana Names: Stopping, Laying Off, and Leaving Names Alone

Duana Posted by Duana at June 29, 2015 18:05:55 June 29, 2015 18:05:55

One of the many, many things I love about this column and all of you who contribute is that it is so unabashedly a sociology exercise. We discuss names, and sooner or later those names apply to someone – and you can’t not react.  I knew that there would be people mad because I didn’t like certain names. Full Article

I don’t like what’s happening here. This dress. There’s too much of it. Looks great on the top but the bottom is … too heavy? Too wide? It’s like what’s going on above the waist doesn’t match what’s going on below the waist, non? The skirt wants to be petticoats and balls. Full Article

I love a long-sleeved shirt dress. It started in the 90s. Calvin Klein, Christy Turlington. To me there’s nothing sexier. As for those shoes, on anyone else I’d burn them. But Zendaya, somehow, makes them tolerable.    Full Article

Duana Names: Nicking the Name

Duana Posted by Duana at June 26, 2015 19:19:07 June 26, 2015 19:19:07

Hi Duana - Our family is expecting the addition of a baby boy the beginning of July. He is eagerly awaited by a big brother Rocco and big sister Tessa. We have a single syllable Chinese last name. You can see that we lie somewhere in the middle of quirky and traditional as far as naming goes. Full Article

Smutty Fitness: Fueling your body for energy

Hayley Posted by Hayley at June 26, 2015 16:16:58 June 26, 2015 16:16:58

When you are training for an event, eating becomes less about trying to count calories and more about fueling your body efficiently to make sure that you are getting the most out of your long training sessions. If you are dragging yourself out of bed, early on a Sunday morning to pound the pavement, you want to make sure you have fueled it properly or you might as well press snooze and catch a few more Zs. Full Article
