Ask the Edit: A Roundup of Short Questions

Ask the Edit: Comfortable Jackets for Work

Whether you’re headed into the office or working from home, sometimes you need a comfortable blazer. Something that can work a 14-hour day without feeling like a strait jacket.  Something that has the relaxed feel of a cardigan, but looks like a blazer.

Ask the Edit: Do We Need Serum?

From clickbait-stories about pre-teens loving Sephora’s wares to fashion mags advocating for a 13-step nighttime routine at 30, skincare seems to be all we talk about.  Without skincare and makeup tutorials, TikTok would just be boring recipes and people complaining about customer service.  But what if you don’t understand the obsession?  What if you just want […]

Ask the Editor: Vol. IV, No. Thirteen

Today is my first day out of COVID quarantine.  This variant is brutal.  If you intend to get the new vaccine and haven’t yet, I implore you to get it soon.  And if you’re traveling for the holidays this weekend, mask up.  Let my week spent ill and isolated be a cautionary tale.
