Hello Duana, I am writing to you in desperation as we are very close to our due date (October 29) and we still haven't decided on a name for our little girl. She will be our first child unless you count our dog and cat (Cali and Maya).  Read Full Intro

I would be nervous wearing this dress with all these pearls. Of course they’re not real. But they’re still hazards, non? Like they could easily catch on something? Also… is it heavy?  No matter, I’m into it all the same. It’d be worth the risk. Not just because of all those pearls but also because of the fit and the cut. Full Story

I’m never going to be mad at a woman in a tuxedo at a gala. Especially when it fits so beautifully and is so obviously well-constructed. Elizabeth Olsen is wearing Dolce & Gabbana. No, it’s not the most original tuxedo we’ve ever seen. Satin lapels are pretty standard. And the fit is classic. Full Story

Plaid is big this season. As it is every season. But this season we’re making a point of highlighting it. The most prominent plaid that we’ve seen has been red plaid - most recently on Jessica Biel last week Full Story

Welcome back to the Sasha Answers Podcast (Friday edition)! Sorry for the delay but we’re back with a good one this week mostly because Lainey’s high on cold pills and I was just kind drunk. On today’s podcast: It’s all friend drama on deck! Is there a friend code after you break up with a partner and can your partner really be friends with the opposite sex. Full Story

This dress isn’t all that noteworthy. I am curious about the placement of the belt though. And I don’t hate it. I think the dress knows that without it, it would be boring. So the belt is an attempt at something a little offbeat. I dig it. Mostly though, what’s pulling me to this look is the colour, the colour on top. Full Story

Zendaya has been out several times this week. And every single time the look is different, and interesting, and fun, and … well… it’s gotten to the point where if she’s showing up, she is the only one to look at. Here are her two most recent looks – a khaki jumpsuit at the Michael Jackson Scream event on Tuesday and a pretty blush pink blouse tucked into high waist pants at the CFDA Fashion Fund Show yesterday. Full Story

Hi Duana, My husband and I are expecting our second daughter on October 25, and we are struggling to come up with a name. Our first daughter is called Dorothy - Thea for short. We would like a name that is longer, but can be shortened. We also don't want anything too popular, as we both had the most popular names growing up. Full Story

Hi Hayley, I am writing to you out of desperation. I am a mom of a 2 year old, and a lawyer with a busy, time consuming job. I never feel like I get enough exercise but I was keeping it together through running, a couple of boot camp type classes a week and biking. I hurt my rotator cuff earlier in the year (my 2 year old likes to be carried) but got through that. Full Story

I am 39 weeks pregnant with my first child, and I'm in that planning-for-after-delivery stage of the pregnancy--particularly around meals, sleep, and exercise. I'm a pretty fit person. Up until 34 weeks, I walked at least 5 miles per day. I had to stop because there weren't public restrooms available as I walked through residential areas and a cemetery on my way to/from work. Full Story

Hi Duana, I would love your help selecting the perfect name for our baby girl (Due October 2017). We know the middle name (Frances) and last name, obviously, which is W---t.  This will be our first child and I am really hoping she is born with her dad's gorgeous fiery red hair. If we are lucky enough to have a red head, I want her name to reflect her "2% of the world's hair colour population" status. Full Story
