Thank goodness for caller ID. It’s saved me many a time from having to suffer through a three-hour conversation with my aunt Judy (or “Jawdy,” as I call her). Don’t get me wrong; my aunt is a sweetheart, but she does ramble on.

Quote Of The Day: Alexander Wang Hearts Zack Morris

“Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford would always talk about how they’re ’70s kids. And now, I’m thinking about how I’m really a ’90s kid. My ideas come from things that I didn’t notice were trends at the time, like seeing my sister wear Via Spiga and watching ‘Saved by the Bell.'”– Designer Alexander Wang [W

Fall is rolling around and we’ve begun to seriously consider revamping our wardrobes. We will, of course, need a few new items and have to do the requisite closet cleaning.

Open Marriage Benefit: A Three-Parent Household

Sometimes I forget things. I don’t mean my keys or why I went into the kitchen, although I forget those too. I mean I forget bigger things. I forget to be thankful, to marvel, to bask in my life and the people I live it with.

The Little-Known Roles Of Ten Big Time Celebs

Man, this week was a downer! Senator Ted Kennedy, a champion of women’s rights, passed away. Chris Brown avoided jail time for beating the crap out of Rihanna.
