What are you saying about my "style" if I can "update" it with this?

Here's an ad for Wayfair that got served up in my Facebook feed:That is so inappropriate! A Last Supper fruit bowl?! And I don't even know what a Compact Electric 26 Pound Daily Production is. I do know that if you click on a Wayfair ad, you'll be forced to give them your email address before you can advance to the product, so I'm never going to find out what a Compact Electric 26 Pound Daily Production is or how much I would have to pay for that complicated and insane fruit bowl.

Are you wearing deodorant while sheltering at home?

Scent provides valuable information about personality traits and attractiveness. Since the 1920s, companies have made us anxious about our odor in order to sell us their products. Our disdain of personal smell is related to our fear of aging and death. With so many of our regular habits upended over the past six weeks, I held an informal poll on my social media channels asking who had quit wearing deodorant. As you can imagine, responses were varied. Some people include deodorant along with ma...

“Then it popped,” Louboutin’s Contrasting Red Sole Trademark

A week ago, over at The Fashion Law, an Independent Source for Law, Business and Culture, an enjoyable trip down memory lane was published about the history of trademark protection regarding Louboutin’s red-colored sole mark. What I hadn’t seen before now is Christian Louboutin’s quote “then it popped”: “The concept shoe, with its stacked heel and floral applique, was missing something. As the story goes, the designer, Mr. Christian Louboutin, reached for a bottle of red nail polish — ‘Thank God...

Understand Your Ultimate Goal

Several years ago, I was living in New York City and taking the subway to work every single day. Like many young people, I’d been taught somewhere along the line that this was “the place” to work and where the most sophisticated work happened, where the highest salaries were paid, and where the most important work occurred. I think this is true to a great extent. The city is extremely exciting and people work so hard there they can’t help but become incredibly good at their jobs. The concentrati...
