While there is certainly no set-in-stone amount, there are so many different rules and expectations when it comes to the cost of the ring that it can be overwhelming, confusing, and downright frustrating (especially for the person making the purchase).

Mr. de la Renta was everything you could possibly imagine. Unquestionably talented—he dressed four first ladies, countless Hollywood stars, and generations of powerful women throughout his 50-year career—he was also gracious, charming, and decidedly funny. Handsome too, in his tall, tan, dashing way. The first time Katherine and I met him, at a small party in his Melrose Place store in West Hollywood, he enchanted us both when he noticed the studs on the lapel of Katherine’s motorcycle jacket. He reached out to pet them, mid-conversation, and purred, “I like these studs,” much to our delight.
If you're a woman and you've ever shopped for shoes, then you know at least one thing to be true: There is seemingly no continuity when it comes to how shoes fit your feet. A size eight at Zara is almost guaranteed not to fit like a size eight at ASOS, and it's an absolutely frustrating experience, especially if (like us) you do the vast majority of your shopping online.

Ever wanted your wardrobe to feel a little more French? If the answer is oui—and we hope it is!—Madewell launched an exclusive collaboration with cult French brand Sézane today and it’s a must-see (and shop!). The collection consists of 14 unfussy pieces with a cool-girl twist, including a reissue of Sézane's popular La Superbe sweatshirt, which sold out within days when it was first released in Europe. When asked about the inspiration for the collab, Sézane designer Morgane Sézalory said, "I wanted to strike a balance between our two cities, Paris and New York. I imagined pieces for two women. First, a French woman trying to 'fit' in New York—she wants to be chic, but cool and casual in that way Americans do so well. Then I thought about an American woman wanting to bring a Parisian touch to her wardrobe. The colors are quiet, heels aren’t too high." Madewell’s head designer Somsack Sikhounmuong added, "Paris street life will always hold a special place in my design psyche. Classics like a logo-less leather bag or a structured car coat worn with a certain sexy tomboy attitude—that’s very French to me."
Tip of the Day: Tuck a blue button-down shirt into your wide-leg jeans, and accessorize with a structured box bag and heeled sandals. For an extra cool finish, roll your sleeves up and tie your hair in a messy low bun.

Science (and Instagram’s #beforeafter hashtag) has proven that exercise can transform our bodies, so what if we told you it could also change your skin?
