Last week, we shared the stories of how our parents met. From Ami’s parents — who met at summer camp — to Kate’s mom and dad — who bonded over Shakespeare in the Park — you guys immediately connected and shared your own parents adorable stories. We noticed a couple of startling similarities in so many of the tales shared — for one, that people used to get married at a much younger age. That’s not entirely surprising — but it is rather shocking that so many stories involved couples getting engaged after only six weeks, and married after only six months. It seems the courting and engagement period was typically much, much shorter than it is now. And what’s more, from your stories anyway, most of those couples seem to still be happily married today. Just something to consider.
More than 70 of you told your parents story, and we’ve selected our 10 favorites for you to read. And if you haven’t told your tale already, feel free to share it in the comments! Keep reading »

Karl Lagerfeld is not known for giving two craps about the little guy. His air, his very being, screams elitist sunglass wearer and hater of children, after all. So we were over the moon to discover that Herr Karl produced an actually affordable line for Macy’s. The clothes are what you might expect from a man who wears gloves and black leather in the grueling dead of summer — black, gray, refined and sexy — and the price point is droolworthy: all items are between $50 and $70. And it appears the models, too, love their frocks. After the jump, we give a glimpse at the clothes and a rundown of their ridiculous model poses.
