Dear Sasha, Long story short, about 10 years ago I was approached to help start up a little production company, it was a great opportunity and I jumped at it. I was able to help employ a lot of fellow freelancers and found the challenge of the job immensely rewarding. In our second year my boss decided to employ an office production coordinator, my first thought was my neighbor, who I was getting to know, would be perfect for the job. Full Article

Hi Sasha, never thought I would be writing in but here goes - I am in my mid-30s and originally from another country but currently residing in the US.  My parents are married and still together back home - they sleep in different bedrooms - you need this information for context.  My mom asked me to look up someone's phone number on my dad's cellphone and while looking for it, I ended up accidentally seeing an inappropriate text message from a woman to my dad - I should not have done this but I continued to look and discovered a lot of inappropriate correspondence between my father and this woman (who thanks to Facebook I have discovered is much much younger than my dad and engaged to another person living in the UK). Full Article

Hi Sasha! My brother, J, and I were brought up with strict Catholic values on my mum's side and ethical, sensible ones of my dad's.  I've ended up a smart, savvy, logical, morally-driven, responsible adult with strong family values.  J... hasn't.  He does what he wants, when he wants, doesn't care who dislikes it, and then goes to my parents with his hand out when he screws up. Full Article

Hi Sasha - I'm on the hunt for some cute flats to wear with straight cut jeans. I'm 5'8" and sometimes I just don't want/need the extra two – three inches most of my shoes and boots give me especially when I'm going out with my 5'1" girlfriends! I was thinking $100 orunder.  Thanks. A. A, I’ll get to your fashion question in just a second but the mention of your shrimpy friends in the letter made me want to set the record straight about something. Full Article

WHAT: ALDO X PREEN COLLECTIONWHERE: CLICK HERE (pictures below)WHY:  Whenever one of you write in with a shoe question I always hit up Aldo to see if they've got what you're looking for, and more often than not they do.  I have to admit that back in the day I wasn’t Aldo's biggest champion; I actually snobbed out a tad, but I’ve gotta say in the last few years they’ve upped their game BIG time. Full Article

Dear Sasha, I'm feeling guilty about some neglected friendships. I have a group of girlfriends from college (we graduated about 10 years ago). We've all stayed in touch over the years, meeting up at weddings, showers etc, but we haven't maintained that call-each-other-every-week status that we had in college. Full Article

Hey Sasha, So when I was 19 I started a new job and met S who I liked instantly. Around a year later he told me completely out of the blue that he was in love with me. I was very shocked and didn’t deal with it very well and basically rejected him. Not long after, he started seeing another girl from work (lets call her B). Full Article

Sasha Answers: is a fresh start possible?

Dear Sasha, I have had a tumultuous year in relationships.  I was with someone for 5 years, most of those being long distance.  He was charming, thoughtful and we talked for ages on the phone each day.  HOWEVER, I only saw him once every 2 months or so for a long weekend, never met his family, and had to deal with him becoming increasingly controlling. Full Article
