One of my favorite teachers, Kate Posch at Sky Ting Yoga (aka my home away from home), mentioned that this capri pant from Outdoor Voices is as ideal for life outside the yoga studio as in, and she is right: they are super, super lightweight, comfortable as anything and amazingly flattering. (I know that it’s tough to call a pair of pants flattering and expect that to apply to everyone, but I am wide of hip and they make me look skinnier than I am.)
Shirtdresses can be hard. Too many of them are narrow, and tough on those with a tummy, hips, or a backside of substance. But good ones are worth seeking out, because they look so crisp on scorching days. I like when they’re a touch flowy, or at least flowier on the lower half. They’re more feminine that way too. Here is a classic example of an old-style shirtwaist dress, only loosened up a bit for comfort.
There is a very subtle striping on this one that I’m crazy for.
You would never know this is a plus option based on what the model looks like, so I am forced to point it out. I like the blue a lot, and think it’s quite office-appropriate.
The light stripes here are so summery and appealing.
I’m just curious, because my hunch is a decent number of you were devotees of the greatest teen mag of all time (if I may say so), and I’m beginning to plumb the depths of my memory for that chapter of the book, digging through old copies and such. Tell me what the magazine meant to you, what the most memorable features were, who your favorite staffer was (it’s OK if it was Christina and not me; everyone loved Christina best). And what was the best cover, in your opinion? I find it impossible to choose just one, but this was right up there.
I was born in Houston, Texas in 1964 and have lived in New York City since 1988. I had a long career in magazines, working at Sassy, Elle, New York, and Spin, and in 2000, I founded Lucky magazine, which I edited for ten years.
