My name is Sarah Brin. I'm a writer and curator in Los Angeles. I was the first person to ever put a bandana on a Golden Retriever. You can email me at sarahbrin (at) gmail dot com.
WHEN I WAS IN MISSISSIPPI at the Hattiesburg American, I had three older friends in the newsroom, and they kind of took me under their wing. One day, one of them took me aside, and was so, so kind, and said, “You know Kelly, you always look really beautiful at work, and this is a beautiful dress. But it is a little bit of a cocktail dress.” And so that was the day I learned, just because you look great in a dress does not mean it’s a work dress.
Oh no? Am I wearing a cocktail dress right now? Maybe I need this book.
