Three Clothing Items to Avoid This Summer in the Office

Depending on where you’re located this summer, office fashion may get a little tricky in the coming months. If you live somewhere where humidity rears its ugly head, or somewhere that reaches over the 100 degree mark on a daily basis, the goal is to just keep cool, comfortable, and professional between the hours of 9 and 5. Though after that, we can’t promise anything more than the summertime uniform of pool attire....more

Who Took That Picture? Fashion Bloggers

I love checking out other fashion bloggers, I always look at them & wonder who took that picture? I also like blogging support groups. It sounds like an addiction, I guess like any other addiction, blogging comes with its down side. It's got a huge learning curve. When I first started blogging, I rarely took a photo. I'll be honest, I'm a much better wordsmith than I am a photographer. The thought of always being "on" to take pictures of myself was really a bit of a pain. ...more

Don't Give Up On Style!

We don't have only one look or one type of style. There are so many occasions that require us to adjust how we dress. One day we may be wearing heels and pearls, the next we might be accessorizing our t-shirt and jeans with a scarf. One of the reasons that women can be intimidated by fashion is that it seems like an all or nothing proposition. It can seem that if you are stylish, then you always have to be dressed to the nines and if you are not stylish, then you are allowed to wear comfy shoes. However, it is not, and should not, be that black and white. ...more

Fashion Tips for Women Over 40

Not so long ago, I was having lunch with a friend and she looked across at me & asked "What celebrity would you say your style is most like?" I looked at her as if she'd just had an alien land on her face. ...more

Shopping List: Baby Gifts

Until recently, I was never that interested in kids.In fact, until the first time I lived in New York as an intern, I didn't want to have children...ever. It wasn't until I saw all of the cool New York parents in their natural habitat that I realized how cool mother/parenthood could be. (Not that my own parents aren't amazingly awesome, but as we all know you never fully appreciate the coolness of your parents until you're older.)...more

Father's Day Gift Guide: East Dane.

My dad is a pretty cool dude. He taught me how to ride a bike, was fully supportive of my decision to dig up dinosaur bones in the backyard as a kid, and has since become one of my favorite people to make laugh. He gave me my tenacity, and even though I’ve been taller than him since the 6th grade (Big R is only 5’4), his larger-than-life personality makes him a blast (but don’t tell him, because he can get a little big for his britches)....more
