It's Still Hot and I Don't Know What To Wear: A Memoir

Keep Calm and Carry-On: What Paris Taught Me About Packing

“Why did you bring such a big suitcase?” he asks, baffled. The thing is, my suitcase really isn’t that big, but in France, where minimalism is key and most apartments don’t even have a lift, having “more” is simply more of an inconvenience.

This May Catch Your (Evil) Eye

The “evil eye” is actually a curse that supposedly befalls those who receive a malignant look from others, traditionally inspired by jealousy (yikes).

The belief in this curse and production of the evil eye talismans has spread over various religions and periods, though heavily centered in West Asia and Islamic culture. It has only been since the mid 20th century that the evil eye has reached popularity in Western culture.

Making Sense of Spring 2019 Trends

Fashion shows can tend to be as confusing as they are entertaining.
