    Fake it till you make it

    By Jenna Doughton

    If you feel like you’re nine months pregnant with a holiday-food baby, then you’re like most of us who are ready to jump-start the new year with grand plans of liquid diets and working out as much as they do on The Biggest Loser. Sure, with a lot of hard work you will be able to get back into your jeans from high school even though you graduated in ’93.

    Every time New York Fashion Week comes around, I await something groundbreaking. It’s easy to spot the trends and anticipate the direction of future collections—for the most part it has all been done before.

Just two years ago the jumpsuit was a big trend. It’s back this year in a new way. Am I trapped inside Groundhog Day?
