    My 10yo daughter and I share a first name! I didn’t know this was a ‘thing’, but I’ve always liked my name and it seemed a good plan to give someone I love a chance to enjoy it, too.

  2. Whitney says:

    Congratulations on the NYT mention— that’s exciting! You sounded spot-on.

  3. Cara says:

    The no office housework article talks about a new book by Stacey Vanek Smith, Machiavelli For Women. It it is one of the best career advice books I have ever read, and certainly the one with the most specific, actionable advice. I wish it was around when I was a junior attorney. There are very few books I would recommend to female professionals, but this is absolutely one of them.

  4. RosaD says:

    Wow love the name news from Italy that’s very cool!

  5. Leigh says:

    Loved seeing you in the NYT article! I completely agree with you here, “When I go to Bloomingdale’s website and click on the dresses-for-work tab,” she added, “the first five are sundresses, and it’s like, ‘Where do you guys work?’”!

    I feel like that with what my friends and I call the return of “The Little House on the Prairie” dresses, which is ironic, because we actually live in Nebraska!

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 […]

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 […]

WFH Outfit: Denim and Black

Does anyone really know how to dress for a rainy February? It’s not winter. It’s not spring. Sweaters seem heavy. Just a shirt feels like you’ll be cold. It’s a puzzle.
