Skinny jeans are hardly news these days.  I know some of my friends were hoping they were on their way out....but no.  Despite the fact that wide leg and trouser jeans are making another appearance, skinny jeans are still going strong.  With good reason -- they are edgy, sexy, and, in the winter when the ground is covered with...
I am too old to dress like a teenager.  I have been for several years now.  It started when I hit age 27.  I realized that certain styles no longer looked quite...right.  Despite the fact that I’ve never really looked my age, after I hit 27 I no longer wanted to look teenager-y.  Young is OK, illegal is not. ...

September 2008 Mom

I loved this outfit.  It was the first time I felt both dressed up and comfy since little man was born.  I'm wearing a Marc Jacobs nylon tote instead of a diaper bag, a flowy DVF strapless dress and long grandpa cardigan.  The dress is loose enough to hide my post-baby belly, and long enough to allow me...

And by drapey, I don’t mean the oversized tee in XXXL that was given to you for free at the last conference you attended.  Also to be ruled out are tees that are given out on race day, or God forbid, any tee that says “Hard Rock Cafe” or “Planet Hollywood”.  The tees I’m talking about come from a different planet completely.  Upgrading your standard...

August 2008 Mom

This is my mom in 1975, in what is now considered vintage.  I actually have those shorts.  It’s August, it’s hot, and summer style should be easy.  Throw on a cute tank, shorts, sandals.  Done.  This summer, style is looking reminiscent of ‘70s fashion, so I thought a real-life ‘70s example would be good.  The daisy dukes are cute...
