With that in mind, here are seven misconceptions about life in retirement.

the20s:Phony Galpal Service Will Make You The Coolest Guy At Band Camp. The cruel irony of being a young and lustful man is that in order to find a girlfriend, you need to have HAD a girlfriend. This is why Cloud Girlfriend will create a fake long distance galpal for you and have her post to your Facebook or Twitter page.  The site asks you to define your perfect girlfriend, yet glaringly leaves out “tangible” as one of her main attributes.    -DM [Patrick Pho]

WhatIWore:

When:
Sept. 26, 2011 evening

What:
Shades: Fred Flare
Dress: c/o Tucker for Target
Sweater: thrifted and overdyed J. Crew sample
Belt: Goodwill
Boots: Justin for Fossil (c/o)
Bag: small boutique in Hong Kong

Where:
Dinner on Kirkwood

Why:
You may have noticed that in the past few weeks, I’ve been morphing into a richer, warmer Autumn color palette. Although I added this dress to my closet over the winter, it feels so perfectly Fall.  I’m also digging being a little more matchy matchy this season. I like how the darker burgundy plays back to the dress.
