Any idea where Rachel McAdams got her hat in today's post of her at the airport? Love love love! Thank you! MDid I tell you the time I lunched with Rachel McAdams?  And by ‘lunched’ I mean sat one foot away from her? Whatever, same thing.  I was with my friend Dean last month and instead of getting some dirt street meat we decided to go somewhere with utensils. Full Story

Sasha, Help! I must have Goop's wing pendant necklace - I like how long it is and how thick the chain is, as well as the size of the actual wing. It's probably out of my price-range (does Goop do cheap?) but I'd like to find it anyway. Please help!  I'm talking about the long bronze-looking one, not the short silver. Full Story

I just watched Adele's "Someone Like You" video, and have fallen in love with what little pieces of her jacket that I saw.  If you could track down the jacket - and while I'm at it, some similarly stylish winter coats for us curvy girls - I'd appreciate it!-MI heart Adele, she's the f-cking best. Full Story

Dear Sasha, The place I currently work at is pretty small, there's less than twenty employees here and everybody's really close. I will admit though that one of the main reasons why I really like this job is because of D. D works in the same area I do and we both generally tend to work the same hours so we've gotten to be pretty close over the last couple of months. Full Story

Friends after sex

I met a guy in grad school two years ago. Long story short, we became neighbourhood drinking buddies who talked about work and bounce off research ideas/frustrations to each other. At that time, we were also in long distance relationships and would bitch to each other how much they sucked. There was some initial attraction but eventually, as we talked shop more and the friendship grew, it faded. Full Story

Dear Sasha, I met a guy who travels in the same circles as me, and we clicked immediately. We had wonderful conversations, great chemistry, and everything happened very fast but very organically.  BUT.  I knew he had just gotten out of an 8 year relationship (we're in our late 20s), so I told him I didn't expect a relationship right away and I tried to keep things at a moderate pace. Full Story

My son is in his last year at UBC.  Spends tons of time on the B line and running around campus and could use a great rain jacket.  He is classing up his wardrobe but doesn't like thingstoo fussy.  I suggested a Goretex from MEC but he wasn't into that.  Do you have some options that aren't too fashion forward for a science guy. Full Story

Hi Sasha Fall weather has arrived in Vancouver which means scarf season is upon us. I'm totally into the style of the woven slightly "coarser" long and wide scarf as seen here. My problem is I just can't get behind colors (looking for more earth tones) and sorry. Full Story

By popular request, we’re breaking down each letter into its own post to allow for more photos and for quicker reference later on.)

Big shoes, leggings, winter boots

I need a size 41 shoe and where can I find a good shoe selection online? I live in Regina, the only one or two independent shoe stores here don't sell beyond size 10 and I am tired of Aldo and Feet First. I'm pretty fashion forward, like nice things, but at Winners or the Shoe Company their larger size shoe section looks like my Great Aunt's closet (and I check Winners at least once a week). Full Story

Rainboots, SJP’s coat, man’s weekend bag

Hey Sasha, I'm very recently moved to London, England and I'm in the midst of the greatest fashion high ever. My big question is: I'm about to encounter a wet, rainy, and generally miserable winter. I need rainboots that will not only keep my feet warm, but also brighten my day a bit. I've already seen a lot of Hunters, and I know their a good go-to, but I'm wondering about my other options. Full Story
