1) Today will be one second longer thanks to something called “The Leap Second,” learn all about it on Vulture.

2) These Calvin Klein Gayle Pumps are $99, come in nine colors, have an ideal 3″ heel, and are available in sizes 5 thru a 11…need I say more.

3) Ask a Manager has five new Q+A’s, including how to manage someone who doesn’t want to move up.

4) Sick of fighting mid-day makeup melt to, worse, foundation-crushing humidity?  Try CoverGirl’s Outlast all-day primer.  (It’s also good for sensitive skin.)

5) Meet the man who helps Hollywood stay sober.

6) This open-back midi dress from Storee might be the most perfect summer dress ever, and it’s just $66.

7) Coloring books are catching on with adults.  And maybe it’s just me, but coloring sounds like it would be oddly relaxing.

8) This printed maxi shirtdress from Vince is to die for, to.die.for.  Tonal purple?  Perfection.

9) The Everygirl shows us 10 ways to style long and short hair.

    Coloring books are definitely relaxing! Mandalas are really nice to color, too

  2. Abbey says:

    How are you supposed to wear a bra with dresses like #6? I see so many clothes like this, but I have no idea how to wear them.

    • Anna says:

      Backless bras or braless. I prefer the kind with sticky panels on the side but have also tried the kind with sticky cups (NuBra) and they work well too. They can get a little sweaty since silicone doesn’t breathe, but I actually found them to be more comfortable than traditional strapless bras.

      • Abbey says:

        Do backless bras provide any kind of support? I can’t go braless–too big on top.

        • Helena says:

          No. Not if you’re a C cup or more.

        • Anna says:

          I’m a 34C and they provide enough for me. Not enough to run laps, but they keep the girls together and sufficiently at attention. I prefer them to strapless bras which I’m constantly pulling up or that pull down on my breasts. If your concerns are more shape and coverage, they’re fine, especially if the dress is a bit on the tighter side. If you need significant lift, probably not.

    • Belle says:

      Another reader wrote me about the Maidenform Breakthrough she wore to her wedding, that might be worth a look if you’re bustier. I just wear a Nubra.

  3. Mary says:

    I have recently passed over coloring books in favor of Zentangles, but they are both calming and I fully support the concept of adult coloring books.

    Thanks for sharing the article on John Paul Crimi (#5). Loved it.

  4. Niki says:

    I wanted to love coloring as a relaxation technique, but all I could do was think about how I had colored outside of a line or how the colors weren’t symmetrical or how I had picked an ugly color . . . basically the opposite of relaxing!!!

  5. Nellie says:

    The lady who does my bikini waxes thought I seemed tense and encouraged me to get crayons and coloring books to relax. Then did observe me at a pretty tense moment!

  6. AttiredAttorney says:

    Thanks for the size 11 shoe love!

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]

How I Combat Stink (and Stress Sweat)

It’s happened to all of us: You’re walking into a meeting and you catch a whiff of something. A slight odor. A bad smell. And you wonder, “Is that me?” You want to surreptitiously check that that unsavory aroma isn’t you, but you can’t do that here. So you just keep your arms at your […]

The Range: Lounge/Travel Sets

If the pandemic did one thing for women, it brought back sweatpants as acceptable attire. But then, fashion decided that we couldn’t wear regular sweat pants, we needed to wear fancy sweat pants. And while it would be easy to disparage the ideal of luxury sweatpants made for chic, casual wear…have you felt how soft […]
