I love the look and feel of classic men's cotton pajamas. The real thing is less expensive than the women's version. Just size down.
The Golden Ratio, also known as the divine proportion, explains the beauty of the Parthenon in Athens, the pyramids in Egypt, and Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa. It is a precise asymmetrical ratio and perhaps accounts for the predominance of asymmetrical hemlines and off-center embellishments that seem to us so very appealing. Many thanks to mathmatician Debbie Grant for explaining the ratio to me!

A really special gift for Mom might be a personalized bracelet or necklace. You and your siblings could put your birthstones and/or initials on charms, or you could put a photo of the family into a locket for her. The jewelry below is from Pottery Barn Kids, but the necklaces come in 14, 16, or 18 inches long just like adult ones though they cost less.

Here's one tip: wear your swimsuit top as a daily top! What tips do you have?
If you're like me and have ever ordered anything from Victoria's Secret, you receive between one and ten catalogs from her a week. Is this persistance effective? Or does the frequency make the catalog seem commonplace? Sometimes I'm just amazed at the amount of merchandise she has, and I'm usually surprised by its good quality.
To reduce the number of catalogs and junk mail in general that you get, you can use the free service Catalog Choice: www.catalogchoice.org.

Have you been to a Joe Fresh store?
The Canadian chain opened in NYC about six months ago. Like H&M, everything is affordable: denim from $19, beautiful silk shirts for $39, dresses and trench coats from $29.
Can't buy online :-( but check 'em out at www.joefresh.com
Do the outfits on characters in movies sometimes influence your clothing purchases?
I love the movie Crazy, Stupid Love, and I loved Julianne Moore's outfits in it--layers of gray over leggings, rich purples, lovely dresses--all complementing her coloring. I believe her outfit below influenced me to buy this sweater--not quite the same as hers, of course, but I love the color, and it has some interesting details.
Which movie character has influenced you?
