like a second set of parents to me, were kind enough to lend me a place where I could write for a few months. In the beginning of my career, I was fortunate to work with a great editor, Susan Dix. She took a chance and hired me as a staff writer at a paper in Florida. Had it not been for that first journalism break, I might have gone into an entirely different line of work. I count Susan as a dear friend and great mentor. I’ve also been so fortunate to write for other fabulous magazine editors, like Bonnie Fuller of Us Weekly, Cindi Leive of Glamour, Jon Durbin of Paper, Christene Barberich of City, my old editors at Mademoiselle, plus so many others. My sister Jennifer, probably the most fashion-savvy and wordsavvy math teacher in the world, has offered priceless advice and guidance. And absolutely none of this would have been possible without the support of my parents, Benny and Sue Lee, who’ve always encouraged me to do my best. My family has seen me in my most embarrassing fashion victim stages through the years I also thank them for not showing anyone all those old pictures. And I thank my lucky stars that I have the love and support of my boyfriend Erwin, who put up with my late nights, daytime pajamas, and writer’s mood swings for a year. I consider him my silent partner on this book for the unbelievable insight he’s given me not only about topics in the book but also about life itself.
