1) In this small, Dutch village, citizens adopt the grave of a fallen American soldier from WWII and honor their lives as a gesture of “comfort” to their liberators.

8) This WHBM pleated maxi-skirt is to die for.  And don’t miss this cap-sleeve, v-neck dress in a bright pinky-red.

9) Since when did early-80s babies become “millennials”?  Pop sugar covers a few things only those of us on the cusp of Gen-X will understand.

10) Oh, to live in a world where Roland Mouret could design your whole wardrobe.  I mean, look at the sculptural elements on this gorgeous blackberry-colored sheath.

    Oh, wow. My great uncle is buried at Margraten. I am touched to know that someone I’ve never met looks after his grave. Thank you for bringing this to my attention, I will share with the family.

    #1: What a really nice thing to do. Thanks for sharing.

    #9: As a late ’80s child, 99% of that article applies to me and even everyone who was born up to 1988, at least. It’s not just early ’80s adults.
