"Do not ever sell yourself short. You do not have to wear pants in order to go toe to toe with men; wear what makes you feel confident, intelligent, and sexy. And find a good tailor."
Spot-on advice from Tom Broekner, designer of the impeccable costumes on Season One of Netflix’s House of Cards. (link)

Fun fact.

In Dallas, Texas, they don’t use the term “studio” re: apartments and rentals. Instead they insist on categorizing them as “one bedroom.”

No, no, my friends, not quite the same thing. If I cannot leave that bedroom, it is not a one bedroom.

i just really hope all of you find someone who is really cool that you can love and have sex with and all that shit but you can also talk politics and about evolution. someone you don’t cling to at parties but you nonchalantly grab their ass when you walk by them in the crowd and someone you reach for at 2am in between dreams to cuddle.

"Hope is what gives us courage. Hope is what gave soldiers courage to storm a beach. Hope is what gives young people the strength to march for women’s rights, and worker’s rights, and civil rights, and voting rights, and gay rights, and immigration rights. Hope, the belief that there are better days ahead." —President Obama at Laborfest in Milwaukee

"The older women I know, who are Republicans, want their daughter to have the same opportunities in the workplace as their sons. And, they don’t want their daughters to have limited access to contraception. And, the younger Republican women I know feel that the Republican party has abandoned them and doesn’t have their best interests at heart, and that it’s trying to preserve an old vision of America that no longer exists.

Many of these people feel that the Republican party has lurched to the right, no longer believes in science, and is not including them anymore. And, they are very puzzled and bewildered by that. But, what I really think is going on is that this is generational. I think that there is a realization happening in the party — we’ve even heard it from Republican diehards like Karl Rove — that they understand they are not getting the women’s vote. But, I do think that the Republican party has a lot of soul-searching to do if it’s going to be getting younger women’s votes."

"I don’t understand why men are allowed to talk about sports and women aren’t allowed to talk about fashion. And, somehow women who do talk about fashion are taken less seriously than men who drone very boringly on about sports."
Joanna Coles, Cosmopolitan’s editor of two years (during which, if you haven’t noticed, the magazine has started getting serious again). (link - Refinery29).
