Even if you’re currently on a drinking sabbatical, there’s no time like the present to start thinking about how to make your next glass of wine the best it can be. Everyone knows that wine that has been allowed to breathe tastes better than popping open a bottle and immediately chugging away. But who wants to wait 10 minutes for a fresh bottle to aerate?

The set designers said they inventoried each of the woman’s items to make sure there was a space for it in the dream closet — and the result is it’s “very similar” but “bigger” to Carrie’s. Jealous.

Lately, my look is what you might call “hobo with pms”-inspired. I’ve been working from home, which means I sit around in sweats all day. On the weekends, when I venture out to make contact with society, I can’t deal with the thought of putting on high-heels or an uncomfortable blouse that requires readjusting every two minutes. That’s why I freaking love the outfit Olivia Munn is sporting on a recent casual stroll. Every item she’s wearing — from cozy cardigan to the flat boots — is comfortable, yet streamlined. She looks completely put together, while not trying too hard. Find out how to get the look, after the jump… Keep reading »
