Duana, I've had "MY" girl name picked out for 12 years. I was happily surprised to learn Baby #2 is a girl due in August, and my husband immediately said, "Cool, we already have a name." Yet here I am, agonizing and overthinking and driving myself crazy. "MY" girl name is Elliott. Full Article

I go through waves of caring about my eyebrows. Sometimes I think it’s liberating to just let them do their own thing – grow wild, be mismatched and let them lie whichever way they’d like – but then the day comes where I realize that that’s just a really stupid idea. That day came crashing down last month and since then I’ve been really working on my brow game. Full Article

Jessica Biel looks really good in this colour. The dress is pretty. And if you’ve watched the video of her on Late Night with Seth Meyers last night, it moves beautifully on her and around her. But that’s not why it’s the Outfit of the Week.  It’s the Outfit of the Week because my friend Lorella sent it to me and Duana when she saw Jessica in the dress and said, “Is this dress choice a Lemonade reference?” LOLOLOLOLOL Of course she’s referring to this: ... Full Article

I don’t know where she’s going but Blake Lively is clearly ready for fall. Like, sure, fashion doesn’t necessarily have to be seasonal anymore but certain fabrics are. And a velvet pantsuit, to me, is fall. I wouldn’t want to wear it in the summer, would you? And Blake’s is a DOUBLE velvet blazer! Or maybe she’s making it summer by not wearing anything underneath?  I want to know how this double blazer works. Full Article

Hi Duana, We're expecting our first child, a boy, in two weeks, and have been at an impasse for months. I'm torn between the '60s and '70s names I like and the names that are popular now (most of which I don't like). I want my son to fit in while still avoiding trendy top 100 names. Full Article

Two outfits in two days to talk about on Rose Byrne:  The first is from last night at the premiere of Juliet, Naked – a floral print strapless dress with a wide leather belt. What do you think of this styling? I don’t mind it. I like the contrast here between the ultra femme softness of the gown and the hard, edge of the belt. Full Article

Hi Hayley! Looking to get some guidance from you as you’ve mentioned your love for the Pilates reformer.  I’ve historically done majority HIIT and circuit type workouts but have hit a bit of rut. I’m less interested in losing weight and more interested in toning and lengthening and for reference, don’t have a long and lean body type. Full Article

The idea of this is better than the execution. There’s maybe too much going on? I like the sleeves. A lot. But the sleeves are not getting their moment because of everything that’s happening across the chest. All that ruching and the knot off to the side and even the asymmetrical neckline. Full Article

Hi Duana, I’ll keep it short and sweet. I’m expecting my second babe, sex unknown, end of August. Our son’s name is Fergus and we love it. Originally we had planned on the name Seamus but when our guy arrived it didn’t quite fit, so a little tweak and here we are. I’m looking for suggestions for boys and girls names that will go w Fergus. Full Article

I mean, I should be making an effort to not have it about me, but I was so delighted with the response from the letter writer in the very personally-affecting Making It All About Me that I had to go ahead and make this the headline on a short but very sweet Friday name update: SeeOdoor is Born!  Hi Duana!  On July 23rd at precisely 8:45am Theodore Henri was born! You made the name special by making it personal and I loved the energy you injected in it. Full Article

What stood out to me about these two outfits on Nina Dobrev is that I don’t think I would have predicted that she’d pick them before I saw her in them. This dress and the jumpsuit, they don’t seem like her regular style vibe. So if this is a new style vibe, I’m totally in. Let’s start with the black and white dress, never a bad colour combination. Full Article
