'Looking Your Age' Has Lost All Meaning

Our lives are reflected on our faces, so the saying goes, but some of us, by healthful living or good genetic luck, seem to dodge the bullet of life-face impact. In other words, we don't look our age. But what does that really mean? What does any one age look like? And when you're told you look good for your age, are… » 4/22/14 12:40pm 4/22/14 12:40pm

Watch This Little Baby Age 14 Years in 4 Minutes

Nothing is quite so paradoxically intimate and alien as the aging process. We are ourselves—we know that—but which self are we? I know that when I am 75 I will still be Lindy, but even now, at 32, the "me" I see in my head is a chimera: my 16-year-old body, my 26-year-old energy, my 9-year-old confidence, the… » 4/14/14 3:30pm 4/14/14 3:30pm

Rejoice: 'Dressing Your Age' Is Dead

A few months ago, I had a couple of hours to kill after work and found myself wandering over to the TopShop a few blocks from work and, as I sometimes tend to do, wasting time by trying on clothing weirder than anything I currently own.
