These lightning bolts from Schwings lace onto my son’s shoes and convince him that he can run faster. I picked them up on a lark the other day and now I want more. Silver wings for my daughter and flames for my other son.  Maybe something for me too.

The Best Madmen Dresses from Season 5

It’s my first Sunday night in a while without a MadMen episode to look forward to and that makes it a bit of a dark day. Last week I had the (dream come true!) chance to attend the live screening of the season finale with many of the cast and crew members.  A special bonus…

Macy’s Brasil Premieres at South Coast Plaza

I love it when retailers go out on a limb and make a statement. The Brasil collection at Macy’s arrived with fanfare, Samba, and scantily clad women in full Carnivale regalia. That’s definitely making a statement! This spring, Macy’s takes customers on a journey to one of the most talked about countries on earth, Brasil….

Spring Cleaning: Making Outfits for my Boys

Every morning we get 4 kids, aged 4 through 15, out the door by 7 am. It’s not easy. Particularly for the littler ones, aged 4 & 7. They’d be happy to dress themselves daily. But I’m not so sure the school wants to see them in Mario PJ bottoms that are two sizes too…

Retail Therapy: Shopping at Stein Mart

We all have our go-to stores. For me, it’s simple. I prescribe: Home Goods when my kids have driven me over the edge and I feel a need to reclaim my space. The Container Store when I feel frazzled and out of control at work (don’t judge me!) Chanel counter at Nordstrom when life has…

Putting a Bird on it since 1983

These are my Bat Mitzvah shoes. They were a modest white, originally. I was really pissed off about these shoes. I wanted heels. Lilac suede peep toes with tiny heart shaped perforations, to be specific. Those were my dream shoes. The ones a cool girl would wear to her Bat Mitzvah. The instant the big…

French Elle Throws us a Curve

In a refreshing change (France – who would have thought!?) from standard fashion magazine fare, French Elle has done an 18 page Curvy spread featuring plus size model Tara Lynn. As a woman, and even more so as a mother to girls, I am delighted to see this spread. Tara is plus sized and you…
