Sometimes You CAN Go Back and it’s TOTALLY AWESOME

So, I took my daughter with me to see Duran Duran a few nights ago. Though she’s eleven and had no idea who they are, she was still excited at the prospect of going to a concert for the first time. We got dressed in hip, understated shades of black and gray while my husband and son were at Cub […]

Dolphin Smooching and Other Cool Things

I’ve lived in Florida my entire life. I’m a native. I practically grew up in the Florida Keys, spending innumerable weekends down there at my grandparent’s house and later at my parent’s place.

Scenes from a Mall

In previous odes to jeans on this blog, I’ve totally spouted off on the unattractiveness of the low-rise jean. I went on and on about how they make your butt look bad and that if you’re not a toothpick or a supermodel but rather an ordinary woman with some actual flesh on her hips, you’ve probably been sporting the dreaded […]

Homer-Butts & Muffin Tops

I know all the arguments against those ultra high-waisted “mom” jeans and let me just start saying I’M NOT IN FAVOR OF THEM! But…someone needs to speak the truth —low rise jeans are NOT flattering to 99% of the female population. They may save you from looking like your mother but you are forced to compromise in other ways. Well…unless […]
