The Marriage 2.0 was an interesting read, although I do not completely agree with the “hard-headed woman”. This doesn’t really have anything to do with the concept of marriage disappearing on a downhill road or her questioning customs related to nuptials. It has more to do with the careless titling of the article.
It would be a little wise for her to do her research. Anyone staying up-to-date with technology should know that there is no such thing as a version 2.0. It is often a version 3.0 that pops up as the newest edition in the market.
Maybe before she thinks about modernizing the age-old practice of matrimony, she should learn to reorganize her own thinking. Also, it is a shame that she has lost faith in wedlock. I myself have been “hitched”, as they say, for 26 years now. Instead of throwing out divorce stats, she should learn to find hope in those marriages that have lasted. Happily married, by email.
As a student of fashion designing, I follow most local magazines to understand the styles most appreciated here. I have to say I am a little disappointed with the lack of diversity in the fashion spread. I am a fan of bright colours and funky patterns.
Prints are big this season and last. It’s a shame that there is a looming mood of monotony in the pieces showcased. Of course, they are all amazing buys. Yet, I hope that you consider those of us who like to be loud. Lyn, by email.
The Back to Basics feature could not have come at a better time. One of my New Year resolutions was to sort out my closet. The 20 essentials made it so much easier to figure what needed to stay and what had to go.
An added bonus was the fact that I realized I didn’t have most of the key pieces. Although my credit card took a beating, putting a look together is too easy now, saving time before I head out.
My mom had taught me a little trick to feel less guilty about shopping. According to her, every time you buy clothes, the same number of items should leave your closet in the form of a donation.
This way, I’ve also crossed out another resolution by giving away to the needy. Maybe others could practise this too.
