Paulina Porizkova Says Aging Is The Revenge Of The Ugly

“Nothing ages as poorly as a beautiful woman’s ego… Beauty, unlike the rest of the gifts handed out at birth, does not require dedication, patience and hard work to pay off. But it’s also the only gift that does NOT keep on giving. It usually blossoms at an age where you’re least equipped to handle its benefits and rewards and instead take it all for granted, and by the time you start understanding the value of it, it slowly trickles away. How’s that for revenge of the ugly ones?

The Look Of Dior — For Much, Much Less

I have very expensive taste, as I am often reminded by my boyfriend, who has gotten to witness this firsthand for many years. That’s why I was so excited to come across this Garden Ring by Fantasy Jewelry. It’s inspired by one of my all-time FAVORITE jewelry collections, Dior Fine Joaillerie: Milly Carnivora and Incroyables & Merveileuses, in which massive stones are surrounded by enameled flowers and stone-encrusted sweet insects. Dior’s website is one to easily get lost in, and there is even a short three-minute film about how these amazing baubles are crafted. The inspiration for this particular ring is no longer for sale through Dior, but check it out here and I am sure you’ll agree that for a mili-fraction of the price, this is a great interpretation.

Girl Talk: My Best Friend Went To Iraq

Stephanie was the last person you would expect to join the Army. The absolute last person. You can ask anyone who knew her growing up and they would all say she seemed destined for the most hippie college you could think of.

We became friends through Girl Scouts and stayed best friends for years after. She was the dynamic, personable one and I was like a shy, muted version of her. Or I wished I was a muted version of her — being anything like Stephanie at all would have made me happy. Keep reading »

Style Dare: Wear Your Night-Out Makeup Today

I didn’t start wearing makeup until I was in college, but nowadays putting it on is one of my favorite hobbies. I like playing with different colors, testing out different brands, piling on dark eyeliner if I’m feeling intense, rosy blush if I’m feeling perky, and forever trying to master the perfect Brigitte Bardot-style cat eye. I especially love the more intense makeup colors — teal eyeliner, purple shadow, dark red lipstick, etc. — and I think it’s kind of a travesty that these vibrant looks are often saved for nighttime outings to dark clubs and bars. So I’d like to propose a little dare … Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “I Saw My Boyfriend With His Wife!”

About four months ago, I began seeing an old high school friend. We hadn’t seen each other in years and had reconnected online. In the 10 years since high school, he had married and had a child. When we began seeing each other he made it VERY clear that he was separated and had been for close to a year. The separation was not exactly amicable. He had his own house and I even met his 3-year-old daughter on the weekends. In the beginning, he said we should keep things sort of quiet until his pending divorce was final. I was OK with this because we had a small group of mutual friends who were aware of the relationship. Last weekend, I was out with some girlfriends at my local bar and my boyfriend walked in with his ex. He saw me and bolted. (We’d had sex two days prior.) About a minute later, I received a text that just said “working things out.” Of course, my friends consoled me and all agreed that I should tell his wife. Our mutual friends (most of whom are guys) agree that he’s a d-bag but think I should keep quiet. They also said they are as blindsided as I am because they thought we were doing so well together. I have texted and emailed several times with no response. I believe I’m owed an explanation at the very least. I have some very incriminating emails and texts that I have contemplated sending to his wife. I haven’t yet because I realize there’s a child involved in all of this. On the other hand, I feel he’s lying to his wife also. I’m feeling very used and depressed and just can’t decide what’s right or wrong. — Feeling Used
