     There are some fashion trends that
     are attainable (minty green dresses,
     for instance), some that are desirable
     (a Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress)
     and some that are for life. At least,
     they’re meant to be. I’m not talking
     about Louis Vuitton luggage. I’m
     talking about human accessories
     such as babies and cute husbands.
         Look at smug marrieds such as
     Jessica Simpson, who has made
     a husband (and large diamond ring)
     seem like the fashion accessory.
     But what happens when that same
     accessory goes out of date?
         Friends of mine who seemed like
     the fairytale couple are getting
     divorced after less time than the

     waiting list of an Hermés bag. It
     makes me wonder if fairytales give
     us false expectations.                                                                                           Equip underpants,

         Take Cinderella, for instance. The
     story teaches girls about competition,
     the importance of beauty and the
     need to be rescued by a handsome
     prince. There are good points, too,
     like the occurrence of magic and
     the importance of shoes, but                           Equip thongs,

         For now, I’ll keep dreaming of
