This time of year, it's always super easy to get into the holiday spirit. The spirit of giving. The spirit of love. The spirit of kindness. We take all those amazing emotions and actions, and plaster them across mankind in a selfless act of compassion and humanity, and it's wonderful. Truly, it's what Upworthy videos are [...]

Everything’s Coming Up Milhouse!

Trips to Disney World are legendarily known for their magic, a notion that holds especially true for me. You see, every time I visit, something wonderful happens. Whether it's fashion campaigns, or Good Morning Americas, or gatherings with friends... magic happens here. Which is why it's especially fitting to be back in this place, once [...]

Dream the Impossible Dream. Shorts.

There comes a point in your life when you feel comfortable with your thighs rubbing together in hot, public places. I am not at that exit yet. I'm on the exit ramp, off to the side, where the truckers park to sleep. I'm not talking about mentally comfortable. In fact, after 20 hours in a [...]

If These Spanx Could Talk

We spent last weekend at a wedding for one of Andy's college friends, and it was one of those situations where he was in the wedding, but I was not, and that's fine. Seriously. The less I need longline strapless bras in my life, the better. They always start off okay, but by hour three, [...]

Huffington Post Live: The Problem with Body Labels

By |2017-06-14T13:44:52-04:00August 8th, 2013|Body, Press|

Apple. Pear. Hourglass. Do you think these labels are harming women? Verdict: I actually don't think they are harmful. I think it's a great baseline to learn about shapes and proportions. Does it suck when it's just another facet of fashion that women feel like they don't into? Of course. But for me, it's all [...]

I was recently dining with friends, when one of them told me that the work I was doing was just enabling people to be fat. I was a "fat enabler." You know, because if we give them clothes to wear and self esteem, we're basically just encouraging them.... like really fat feral cats. Clearly this [...]
