The 20-Second Lip

The 20-Second Lip

While statement lips are huge right now, I don’t want you guys don’t feel like I expect you to spend 20 minutes on your lip look every day. I mean, I’m just as lazy as the next person, but even if I’m going to exercise class and/or haven’t bathed or washed my hair for a while…

Haute Thoughts by Heidi Dillon: The Pleasure and Pain of Fabulous Footware

UPDATE: Shoe Goddess responds to Heidi’s post!  As much as I sympathize with Heidi’s pain, I wonder if there was any preliminary sign to her foot situation and if she always wore well made shoes? I kind of see the article as a terrible blow to all the women (aged 50+) who gracefully wear high … Continue reading Haute Thoughts by Heidi Dillon: The Pleasure and Pain of Fabulous Footware
