Growing Up Without Half Of My Culture Left A Hole In My

Growing Up Without Half Of My Culture Left A Hole In My Life

There are only a couple things that are typically Argentinean that my dad taught me about: their love for dulce de leche (a delicious treat I use in baking), their obsession with soccer (although my dad was more of a basketball fan) and their love for meat -- specifically, steak. That's it. That's all I know. A huge chunk of me is missing and I don't know if I'll ever find it.

What Celebrating Taylor Swift's 'Downfall' Says About

What Celebrating Taylor Swift's 'Downfall' Says About Us

There's just something about successful women that we love to tear down, especially when they're revealed to not be as perfect as they present themselves to be. So, Taylor lied about discussing a few lyrics. Burn her to the ground. Chris Brown beat up Rihanna. Buy millions of his albums. Woody Allen allegedly molested his young daughter. Give him all the Oscars. The fact of the matter is, celebrities lie to protect themselves all the time. This isn't new. But when a successful woman lies? Oof. We better take her down a peg or two and try to ruin her career.

How to Buy a Wedding Dress Without Wanting to Kill

How to Buy a Wedding Dress Without Wanting to Kill Yourself

Unlike what movies, friends and TV's "Say Yes To The Dress" say, I never thought about my "dream" wedding when I was a girl. I didn't dream about my "perfect" wedding dress. So when my boyfriend proposed to me in August, I instantly dreaded the idea of planning a wedding and saying "yes" to the dress.

I Stopped Dressing Up For Fashion Week, and I've Never Been

I Stopped Dressing Up For Fashion Week, and I've Never Been Comfier

I hate that now, part of the job of a fashion editor somehow means that you have to dress as if you're a model on the runway. This Toronto Fashion Week, I decided to rebel. This time I wasn't going to panic and buy new clothes. This is what I wore: flat riding boots, black leggings, an oversize "Battlestar Galactica" T-shirt I got from Toronto ComicCon, a Roots "Heart Canada" sweater.

Vogue Only Likes Lena Dunham From the Neck

Vogue Only Likes Lena Dunham From the Neck Up

When Lena Dunham's Vogue cover was released on Wednesday, I couldn't hide my disappointment. There was Lena, looking beautiful but we didn't get to see if she was wearing pants or a skirt or maybe even shorts --- or nothing at all! -- because the editors decided to use a close-up shot of the Girls actress. My problem with Lena's Vogue cover, Mindy's Elle cover and all the others is this: Continually refusing to show an average woman's body on the cover of fashion magazines sets a dangerous precedent for future covers. It gives off a mixed message: Yes, we want cool, smart, funny gals on our covers but their bodies aren't good enough to show off.
