    Lauren I never comment but I have to tell you how much you crack me up and how much I enjoy watching you! You have made me realize it’s not ok to be lazy about dressing nicely (all the time anyway) I still wear yoga pants to take the kids to school but you inspire me to break out all my beautiful clothes (that my hubby complains I never wear) and wear them! And I’m reminded why I bought them. So thank you!! And I’m one of the ones that just wants to always be comfortable

    As a Black Man in NYC, can I start a personal stylist business? I’m doing research and I’m only coming across personal stylist businesses run by women. Makes me wonder.

    I already knew not to wear workout pants outside the gym. To me that’s a huge duhhhhh. But you know… I struggle with leggings because I’m worried about the attention it can attract. I have a big butt. So maybe wear with a long sweater? Longer shirt? I need more styling help with these.

    Are “pant leggings” what we used to call pencil pants, but with stretch fabric?

    I just want people to understand that leggings aren’t trouser pants… You don’t wear leggings with VPL’s and cropped tops…
