Women and Their Clothes

Dear Short Answers: A friend of mine gave me a dress approximately 6 years ago. We were trading clothes like a lot of females do. She gave me a dress that she no longer wanted. I later turned that dress in to a cute ” Tinkerbell” Halloween costume. Now, 2 years later, she asked me [...]

Just Do It

Dear Short Answers: My wife and I are both in our 40s and have had a great marriage for the past 12 years. I recently decided that I wanted to get a tattoo. I can’t explain why, I just do. The problem is that my wife hates tattoos and refuses to allow me to get [...]

Nunya

Dear Short Answers: There is a new woman at work who dresses in a very inappropriate way. The problem is that she dresses TOO WELL!! I work in a casual work environment and she dresses in fancy designer suits and expensive shoes. She’s making the rest of us girls look like slobs. How do I [...]

Sartorially Splendid (Not)

It makes sense to me to share things like that since they are expensive and not frequently worn.  BUT my friend returns my dresses without dry cleaning them which strikes me as … vulgar. Should I say something? Wanda Dear Wanda: YES!  [...]

Clothes Maketh the Man

Dear Short Answers: A friend of mine’s husband recently passed away. He was very stylish and had a great many wonderful clothes (which I often commented on).
