• 5 Staple Pieces Your Guy Needs In His Wardrobe

    Below is a guest post by Nick, husband of Jean: Like a lot of guys, I have a very precise clothes shopping strategy: buy one thing and wear the crap out of it for a year, then go shopping again. So when it comes to sales, I try to steer clear of the white leather pants and, instead, look for versatile items I can wear in a variety of situations ...

    Someone requested I write about my most and least favorite fashions for women. Great idea! I’m going to focus on the latter. Maybe you saw Jean’s recent photo of Stuart Weitzman boots.
