The New Mom Jeans

 I know what you’re thinking: Why would I want to wear mom jeans? I’m going to tell you. Mom jeans don’t have to mean unflattering, ill fitting, poorly cut denim. Not anymore anyway. When I say mom jeans I mean the perfect pair of […]

Back to the Basics with Black

When did basic become a bad thing? I can’t remember what I was watching (maybe the Real Housewives?) but apparently you don’t want to be called basic. Being decidedly politically incorrect, I still call things basic all the time. Basic day, basic colors, basic outfit- […]

Giving the Cold Shoulder: Part 1 Dancing in the Rain
