Style 911: “What Is Business Casual, Anyway?”

“I just got a job that requires ‘business casual’ attire, but I have no idea how to make that look fashionable, so I either end up over-dressing or just wearing boring slacks and a button-down.  I work in the recovery field with mostly men, so I also need to stay on the conservative side.  The specifics: I am an hourglass size 10/12, I live in San Diego (so heavy winter options are unnecessary here), and I cannot wear jeans. Help!!” — Michelle

Ugh, business casual, such a nebulous, unclear concept, right? If it was really casual, you’d be able to wear sweatpants with impunity. And if it was really business, you could wear biz suits and not feel out of place. But alas, it is in the weird, stupid void in between. I feel your pain.

The key to dressing biz cash is finding the appropriate mesh of fabric and silhouette. You need to find items that are in textiles that are comfortable and wearable, and in shapes that are flattering. I think a few cotton or rayon A-line dresses could do the trick. Paired with a blazer and flats, and you’ll look professional and polished — but not too dressed up. Let me know what you think of these…

Have you ever gotten a text from a dude and had no idea how to respond? Like, something vague like “what’s up” or “thanks for last night” or “stop calling me, you’re creeping me out”? There’s a new website called He Texted that helps take the mystery out of dude messages. Girls post texts they’ve received from guys and readers then vote on whether they think the guy is into it, over it, or if they’re not sure. So simple, but yet so necessary. (Though generally? If you have to ask, he’s probably not that into you).

The site also offers personal advice from two bros — Ben, who calls himself a “dude whisperer,” and Mason, who is a self-proclaimed douchebag. “Hey there,” says Mason.”I’m kind of a douchebag, who knows many other douchebags. If you are having a douchebag situation, hit me up. Pretty sure I’ll be able to tell you exactly what’s going on. Oh and for the record, it’s not that I don’t like you, I just have a short attention span.” Ah, so that explains it. [He Texted]

The Pros And Cons Of Dating A Divorced Man

Two years ago, I met a gentleman I shall henceforth call James, because his name was, well, James. James and I had a first date for the books. It lasted a full 10 hours (we’d met up for coffee at 3 p.m. on a Saturday), and we discussed everything from the rudeness inherent to chronic lateness to how we both hate the book Confederacy of Dunces. We discussed how embarrassed we both are by this latter fact.

I knew about James like you know a good dye job. Here’s the one for me, I thought. The man I’ve been looking for years. I just KNOW.

There was one little problem, however, and that was that James already had a wife.  Keep reading »
