Women

Well.  Two things I never thought I'd be discussing together:  Cancer...and NY Fashion Week.  But there it is. First up...hair.  After a long (mostly internal) debate...I decided to cut my hair in stages.  It's coming out anyway, in a matter of weeks.  In fact, by the time most of you are reading this, I'm probably down at Penn getting my...
Sooo...Raines started kindergarten today.  It was...umm...OK.  I suppose.  The school has done a good job in breaking us in:  yesterday the kids went to class for only an hour while the principal talked to the parents, and last week we did a quick orientation (meet the teacher, see the classroom, etc.). While we were at this orientation, Mike spotted Francine....

Fall Trend: Moto Jackets

  Mamas, it's time to talk Fall Trends!!  First up....the moto jacket. I fully support running out and grabbing some badass leather moto jacket (this one is fabulous).  I mean...Miranda Kerr sports one, baby in tow, so there you go.  It's possible.  And many of you have previously confirmed that it is indeed easy to wipe spit-up off of a leather...
While I was home in June, my sister and I had a discussion about crop tops.  She was pro, I was...meh.  Until I remembered that I had one.  (It was on clearance for $4.99 at Ann Taylor.  Reason enough, right?) And actually, I do like this top.  You've seen it before here with a high-waisted maxi skirt....and a high-waist something,...
Due to a trick of lighting in my last post...it looks like I was wearing a shimmery tee with my old beat-up bootcuts.  The problem NOW is that I'm now dying for a shimmery tee...and based on the comments, I'm not the only one. Also, many of you have recommended some really cool track pant/trouser hybrids after seeing how cute...
For a while, sitting upright in a chair was insanely uncomfortable.  So we got in the habit of packing the car with some food (and creatively disguised booze), throwing in our trusty mat, and heading out to find a cool park. It's really hard to beat Drexel Park.  Right? R is obsessed with paper airplanes so that's what we do.  Over...
Rachel sent in this adorable pic of herself last week.  She wrote: Inspired by your recent post I decided to try out my sweats again.  I got them at JC Penny for $20.  They are definitely sweat pants, so I've always had a hard time figuring out what shirt to wear with them: too dressy looked weird, a cotton T...
Ok, Mamas.  First things first.  Wanna see my new boobs?   Their perkiness is beyond my wildest dreams.  I may never need a bra again!  I mean YES - the shirt is strategically covering a whole mess of bandages and scars and my one remaining nipple is sorta facing the wrong direction....but all of that is fixable in time.  Pretty cleavage...

My Fall 2013 Styleboard

I've been working away on a 2013 Fall Essentials list for moms (coming out soon!!) but one trend* became very clear: The 90's are back. (*it could be argued that 'the 90's', are, in fact, multiple trends and yes OK fine.  Agreed.) But it's the best of the 90's.  It's minimalist-grunge with twists of glamour...and a 70's influence thrown in.  It's fabulous...
What a wild ride this past week has been.  But despite the crappy news, we are all doing OK.  Like...honestly OK.  And Mike and I both have been blown away by the love and support we've received from family, friends, and you.  It's funny, so many of your comments start with, "I know we don't know each other but...
