Why Is Teen Fashion So... Ugly?

February 25, 2015

I recently spent some time at the mall. It’s something I vigorously try to avoid, but I have a teenage daughter and that complicates my efforts.

New York:
December 12, 2010

Sitting in Central Park this weekend, I watched as a professional photographer brought her clients to a picture-perfect hideaway for the classic holiday card photo shoot.

It represents an entire year of existence and growth for the family, as it is mailed out to close friends and family….More
