Fashion We Love

Just the Kind of Pick Me Up You Need

Now that I’ve returned to the world of breastfeeding, I’ve officially begun the search for a nursing bra that doesn’t scream "Look, a nursing bra!" You know, something that actually hoists the girls up without those straight jacket tactics.

The Maternity Three-Way

I can personally attest to the fact that by the time you pop that baby out, you’re ready to burn all your maternity clothes. Not just because most of them aren’t up to your prepartum style standards, but because you wear them so much you’re just damn tired of looking at them. With that in mind, the 3-in-1 dress from NEST by Swanky Maternity is that perfect addition to the maternity closet

The First Trimester Tee

Shopping during the first trimester of pregnancy is a nightmare. Not big enough for the materni-tents, but too bloated for my current crop of fitted tees, I resigned myself to being doomed to fashion purgatory for a while.

Ta-Ta For Now

Who does not like a healthy set of ta-tas? No, one that’s who. Which is exactly the premise behind Save the Tatas, Julia Fikse’s humorous tee-shirt company dedicated to promoting breast cancer research through humor.

It’s All About the Belt

It wasn’t until after I had kids and lost most of my baby weight that I started needing a belt. I looked in the mirror one day and realized I had left my butt somewhere on the delivery table. But considering the style of belts that remind me more of what I wore in 1987 with my pegged leg jeans, I’ve invested instead in long shirts and resigned myself to the constant tug.

Flowers Even I Can’t Kill


I do not have what you’d call a green thumb. I’ve killed cacti, for God’s sake. And yet the cruel irony is that I love surrounding myself with flowers, especially as the weather gets crisper and the blooms aren’t quite so readily available.

Outcool The Playgroup

I am not apologetic that I use my daughter’s chest to promote my own interests, tastes and sports affiliations. It’s just a small part of my master plan to get her to agree with a few of them. If you share my perspective, you are going to have a field day at Reckon Wordwide, the online shop of poet, artist, and silkscreen master, Chris Weige.

Flour Power

Cupcakes are arguably nature’s perfect food. I don’t think it’s possible to ever be angry at anyone or anything when you’re eating a cupcake.

The No-Nanny Diaries

Remember the days of sassy hair dos, perfectly pedicured toes, and slim fitting couture? I do. But no one would ever have guessed that I hadany sense of stylebased on my current wardrobe of ponytail, t-shirt, and flip-flops.
