There’s been a shortage of really special outfits lately. I wonder if that’s because people are hoarding and banking - award season is coming up. This one I’ve been holding on to for a few days and I said to myself when I first saw these shots of Janelle Monae, “It’s going to be hard for anyone to top this”. Full Article

Hi Hayley,   I recently went through a very stressful life event. One of my family friends was diagnosed with terminal cancer at 37, and passed away shortly after. It is one of the most difficult things I have ever faced, and it has affected every single aspect of my life.   After his passing, I tried to get back into my regular routines but the scale is just not moving at all. Full Article

Plaid was big last year. It has carried over to this year. Here’s Leslie Jones in a full plaid suit, perfect for the season, perfect on her. It fits her beautifully. The jacket sits nicely around her shoulders, through the waist. And I love the pant length on her.  Some people, I’ve heard, are afraid of an all-plaid suit. Full Article

Hello Duana, I am expecting my second daughter at the end of November. My first is named Gwendolyn and she goes by both Gwendolyn and Gwen (the shorter version is much easier at preschool). We chose this because it’s classic, feminine but substantive and has nickname options. My husband and I both have very short names, so we liked the idea of having options as she grew up and figured out who she is. Full Article

Hi Duana, I have loved reading your column for the past few years. I am writing so late in my pregnancy as my father recently passed away in September. I am not as prepared as I always imagined I would be for my first pregnancy but "that's life". To be honest it has been a rough few months emotionally and very difficult to focus on the concept of bringing a little human into this world. Full Article

I’ve come to the realization that I cannot leave the house without big ass hoops. I don’t feel finished without them. And what I love most about this trend is that it’s, well, not a trend. They are timeless. They are never going out of style. The end.    So with that piece of knowledge it’s always good to invest a little more (if you can) - that way you know they’ll have some lasting power. Full Article

What else could it be? He came and saved me. Before yesterday, I didn’t have an option for the Outfit of the Week. Everything was boring this week. Until now.  Here’s Ezra Miller in Moncler at the Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald premiere in Paris last night. It’s AMAZING. Full Article

The other morning when I was training a client, she brought up her concerns about her weight (again) and how when she was on a trip with her girlfriends they were all faster than her on the hikes than she was, even though she exercised WAY more than them. So, we had a little chat. Here’s the backstory on her. Full Article

Hi Duana, I am pregnant with my first (and potentially only) child, a girl. I'm due Christmas Eve so will have a holiday-season baby. My husband is 100% set on the name Gloria. I also love it, and if my due date fell at any other time of year I would go for it, but... here's where I have some doubts. Full Article

Carpets & Candids: Shailene’s silver sequined romper

I don’t know if it’s actually a romper or if it’s two pieces but it’s intended to look like it’s a romper, I think, so we’re calling it a romper and not fighting about that.  What we might be fighting about is whether or not this look works. I don’t think it doesn’t work – I really do like the big puffy sleeves – but I think it would work better if not for the V-neck and the cut out at the waist. Full Article
