Since 2002, Fair Chance has engaged more than 100 nonprofits and reached 80,000 children, youth and families in Washington, DC. This year the event took…

Fall has finally hit in the DC area and it's straight up cold. It was literally 90 degrees one day last week so it's hard to accept we're in the season for coats and boots. We pulled out all of Emerson's winter clothes and also received a Stitch Fix box for her that has some super adorable and super warm pieces. As for me, I haven't pulled out my winter…

What I Wore: Cropped Wide-Leg Jeans

Fall Fashion Outfit Posts

Just call me a hypocrite, or maybe a convert.  Just a few short months ago I told a reader to get rid of a pair of high-waisted cropped wide-leg jeans and now here I am wearing a pair. These aren't the kind jeans that will make my legs look a mile long or my figure a smaller dress size, but the older I get the less I care about following…

Rothy’s Shoes Review

Fashion Advice

A year ago, I purchased my first pair of Rothy’s flats. After giving them a real beating through the streets of New York, I wrote my first Rothy’s flats review. Since then, tens of thousands of you have read that review and purchased your own pairs of Rothy’s. And since then, I have added to my Rothy’s shoe collection, trying out their Points, Flats, Loafers, and their Sneaker. I have…

What to wear when hosting a party - consider a caftan for comfortable glam

The Oxygen Edit: Hostess Fashion

Fashion Advice

“I always struggle with what to wear at parties in my own home. Mostly we're talking semi-relaxed lunches and dinners. Somehow it feels wrong to wear heels or blazers at home, especially in the kitchen. Sometimes I have worn a maxi dress and flip-flops, but it's actually a bit too relaxed for me (my intention was to wear something that would make my guests relax). Next month I'm hosting a…

I'm writing this Friday. Karl and I just shot an upcoming real-life capsule wardrobe where I chose nine pieces of clothing from a single brand and created 20 different looks for work, weekend, and even a few social events. We shoot these in our home, moving all the furniture to make room for the backdrop, lights, and tripod. It takes a couple hours to shoot and change that many times;…
