How Many Leggings Should You Have?

When is it too much? Is it too much when you have a pair for every day of the week? Or is it when every photo of you depicts you wearing a pair of legging? Or is it when your sister opens your drawers and your closet, turn to you, and says, “Are leggings going to be the new currency after the zombie apocalypse?” When can you say that you have enough leggings?

2 Designer Shoes with Jaw-Dropping Potential

If a dog is man’s best friend and, according to Marilyn, diamonds are a girl’s best friend, then the newly single gal’s best friend are going to be designer shoes (you probably thought I was going to say a push-up bra).

If you were a housewife, you would probably get vaginal rejuvenation surgery (there are two of them who have done that post-divorce). But there is a much cheaper and less invasive way to get your confidence back, and that’s through your shoes. We all love this moment—you run into your friend or co-worker, they gasp, their jaw hits the floor, and they ask “Where did you get that?” Oh, the elation you feel at that moment! It feels so good to have […]

Hold on—it is not what you think. But we all know what it is. You see a celebrity’s closet in a magazine spread or you see the closet of one of the housewives of Beverly Hills and your pupils dilate, your heart starts racing, and your brain is flooded with serotonin. You can’t help but stare wide-eyed. Look at the array of colors and the wall devoted just to shoes. Is that a jewelry vault in the corner? And did that diva Mariah Carey say that she just has a closet devoted to her lingerie? You can’t help but obsess.   The Haves and Have-Nots Never has the gap between the haves and have-nots seemed wider. Later that day, you […]
