Need to know who makes the cream sweater she was wearing while looking at Halloween stuff with her kids. Help Me!  ASay what you will about Goop and her annoyingness but dang, that chick has the best wardrobe ever. And here she is casually, you know, no big deal, wearing a sweater from the Celine Pre-Fall collection. Full Article

Sasha, my parents’ marriage has never been good, like ever. My dad is an alcoholic and can get pretty violent. He's hit me, my brother and my mother at various times throughout the years. He's still angry all of the time, can't stop drinking etc. etc. but hasn't tried anything physical with us since 16 (I'm 20 now), but takes it out on us through verbal attacks, sly comments, generally being a massive d-bag. Full Article

Sasha answers: My cheap roommate

I have recently made a wonderful new friend - we keep wondering how we didn't meet sooner when you look at just how similar we are. One point of difference though is our approach to money. I consider myself a fairly generous, sharing person. Over the past 5 years flatting with various people, I have never been the person that has polices food in the fridge (which I can completely understand, it's just not me) and my general philosophy is it all comes back to you in the end. Full Article

Sasha Answers: My sister-in-law sucks

I'm wondering how best to deal with my totally self-absorbed sister in law.  I am not the type to complain to my husband about her, as she is his sister and he loves her.  In fact, I don't talk about her negatively at all to him, as I don't play that.  She is, outwardly, a nice enough person, but is just so wrapped up in herself that I just don't even want to be near her at all. Full Article

Dear Sasha, I've noticed all the capes around at the moment and I NEED this cape in my life - unfortunately in no universe do I have $1000 to spend on anything - let alone a damn cape!  I really want something similar for next winter but is that possible for around the $200 mark?Thanks in advance, A. Full Article

Hi Sasha, I am looking for some cute lace up ankle booties in brown. I want them to have a heel (a chunky heel) so I can be stylish but i can still walk around in them all over Boston. I saw Jennifer Aniston wearing a pair that looked comfy and stylish. Lastly, the reason why i need your expertise…they need to be around $100. Full Article

My smothering flatmate

My flatmate is smothering me. Until now, I have had a really good relationship with her and we have never had any problems. Recently though, I have felt as though she is wanting too much from this relationship. I get daily requests for catch-ups while we are at class (even though I will see her that night at home) and the times when I stay doing work until later, her feelings get hurt. Full Article

Sasha: I recently ended things with my long term boyfriend I will call him Jim. Jim and I were together for a few years but believe me it was not a healthy relationship. Jim is emotionally abusive he has a severe anger management problem. He treated me like I didn't matter and I took it because I felt like I didn't deserve better. Full Article

I have a slight dilemma and would like your advice.  I have a crush on a guy at work. It started out as a small crush but it has grown substantially over the last several months.  We email each other regularly (sometimes work-related and sometimes not) and spend time chatting in our respective offices. Full Article

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 Article
