Mike Dang's daydream is so Mike Dang. Awesome!
@moreadventurous J. Crew has a few wedding pants ensembles. Not my personal style, but I love that they're doing them.
@EA_Mann I bought a J.Crew dress and I couldn't be happier with it. After trying on mountains of lace, satin, and tulle that made me feel like a complete jerk and cost SO MUCH MONEY, I found their minimalist, preppy aesthetic fit my style much better. They make dresses in COTTON! WITH POCKETS! And you can't beat the prices, as wedding dresses go.
Great to read more from Beatrice

@shannowhamo I agree. I have an iPhone and have no problem with inaccessibility. This is not intentional, I just forget to check my phone.
I started tipping housekeeping about 20 years ago when I used to go on business travel with an ex who was a major slob - it seemed like to decent thing to do. I believe this has been a standard thing in upscale hotels for quite a while but has recently filtered down to more budget establishments. It's hard to say what is standard tipping and what isn't. I recently had a New Yorker berate me for not tipping the bagger at the grocery store, which has never been a thing to my knowledge in California unless they help you take your bags to your car. This might be because most grocery stores here are (were?) unionized.

@Ester Bloom You are not the first person I have heard say that.
