About The Mom Edit

Founded in 2008 by Shana Draugelis, The Mom Edit is a shopping and lifestyle website with a candid take on modern parenting.  We translate trends into something wearable, get overly excited about cute shoes that are comfortable and walkable, try on the scariest of swimsuits, and maybe write a few odes to well-fitting denim.  (We specialize in haiku.)

Along the way, we try our best to keep it real.

The Mom Edit is more than just a website.  We’re a growing community of style experimenters and shopping enablers, of personal style seekers, of moms who play (and travel) hard….yet want to look good doing it.   We acknowledge that one person’s definition of “cool” may be different than our own, and we celebrate these differences.  The Mom Edit community is pro-women, pro-nursing, pro-bottle feeding, pro-co-sleeping, pro-sleep schedules.  We are Team Mom, no matter the race, gender, religion, or parenting style.  We are Team Mom even in cases where the path to motherhood was tough, or didn’t happen at all.

In addition to easy, everyday style for moms, we cover the occasional date night style, workwear, guy style, kid everything (books, toys, clothes), family-friendly home design, and travel….with a lighthearted dose of reality (and breast cancer – Shana is a survivor) thrown in. 

But it’s the WE, the whole family and community, who get us through this crazy thing called life.

So get comfy, stay a while, and join the discussion.  Because if you’ve found something chic and comfy?  That’s Mom Edit GOLD. 

And if you just want to share some mama-love and support with others? 

Well, that’s…EVERYTHING. Xo



Shana founded The Mom Edit in 2008. She lives with the love of her life (his name's Mike) and their two crazy boys in downtown Philadelphia. She loves a good styling challenge (her engineering side shows eventually), appreciates kindness, and usually picks scotch over wine, sneakers over stilettos, and denim-underwear, always.

Meet Scotti, the contributor with our most-loved beauty advice. When Scotti's not giving us the scoop on the latest products and techniques she's dishing out some of TME's most loved looks. It's not easy to look so cute in the U.P. of Michigan (i.e. crazy cold and snow) but she always makes it happen.

Meet Laura! She's a reader turned contributor and we couldn't be happier to have her as part of the team. Her fun, creative style is, as she says, "somewhere between Madewell and Joan Jett" (YES.) and she delivers some mean dressing room selfies so keep an eye out for those. Fun fact? She loves getting her haircut and we love to see what she has up her sleeve.

Wife, mama of 3, true believer in the importance of finding meaningful ways to stay sane(-ish) throughout motherhood, such as style blogging, making absurd videos on Instagram & hiding in the guest room. It's not always easy, but when it's hard...there's always Netflix. *peace sign*

Meet our resident artist/fashionista, Jess. Her creative side pours into her everyday style and it's oh, so good. Not only can she dish out packing capsule wardrobes, Jess can draw the dream wardrobe to match. We love to get inspired by her artwork and we think you will, too.

After my oldest was born, I found myself wearing my old tank tops and yoga pants everyday. I had a ton of unworn clothes in the back of my closet and had a little voice in my head saying "why look nice if you're going to be home nursing a baby around the clock?" Now, after change of mindset, I apply my fashion design studies to my everyday craziness and document the things I try here on The Mom Edit and my own blog The Unbosom.  If you can't find me in the bathroom hiding from my kids, I'll be on Facebook or Instagram @theunbosom begging for bedtime!
