So when she was spotted out partying with friends after a show during New York Fashion Week, the New York Post declared her in "single-girl mode." That's to say she was having fun and looking fantastic — "like she had lost some weight."
Now I've certainly lost weight after breakups, but it had more to do with being in depressed mode rather than "single-girl mode." The idea that women somehow dress better, look better, and are better when single has always bothered me. As if going out to pick up men is a mission, like hitting up all three bars on your Saturday-night itinerary, and we let ourselves go once taken. If anything I try harder when I'm in a relationship, because I know there's someone specific, whom I care about, to impress.
In honor of National Singles Week (this week!), I want to know: do you change it up when you're on your own?
