We must be willing to let go of the life we planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us. — Joseph Campbell

Climber. What’s the difference between anxiety and ambition?

Cold. A lightweight desk cardigan, and a chunkier version.

Grown Woman. On being grown up, but not feeling like an adult.

Blazed. Daniel Rainn’s open-front jacket has a cool look; it also comes in plus.

Night Owl. Six ways to set boundaries around e-mail.

Booted. Amazon has all the fall boots. I like these grey Edelman tall boots.

Parisienne. French women think it’s time to retire the French Girl cliche.

Pinned. I love Talbots leaf brooch and this dragonfly for your winter coat’s lapel.

Working Mom. Tips for going back to work after baby from women who’ve been there.

Relaxed. This Lucky jersey dress is equal parts casual and chic, and <$25.

Shopgirl. The United States of Cheapskates, on our love of cheap goods.

Designer. This bow-neck Gucci coat is just a joy to look at.

Entrepreneur. Should women lean in or quit to do their own thing?
