    Confession time, moms. How many of you have secretly eyed your daughter’s (or son’s!) newest wardrobe addition and wished you could wear it yourself? Let’s face it: Our clothes might be pretty and flirty and fun in that "grownup" kind of way, but they’re not Fun the way our kids’ clothes are. 

    We moms are often the ones buying our children’s wardrobes and dressing them, so it’s only natural we’d be fantasizing about what life would be like if it were okay for us to wear sneakers that light up or sparkly pink tutus. Sadly, even if it WERE okay, they don’t make all those amazing pieces in our sizes -- unless we are really, really tiny. But they should. They TOTALLY should.

    Personally, I can think of at least a dozen things my 7-year-old daughter wears that I wish I could pull off myself. Here are nine kids' items I would totally raid my daughter's closet for without any shame.

    Every time I walk into a public place, I am shocked and appalled at all the terrible style choices moms are making.

    You may have had kids, ladies, but you're certainly not dead.

    Please, for the love of fashion, stop wearing these 5 things right now. You're beautiful and radiant, but these looks aren't doing you any favors. And they're hurting my eyes.

    The word "caftan" might conjure up visions of Mrs. Roper (please tell me you are old enough to get the reference), but believe it or not, those flowy garments are having a moment. Case in point: Andre Leon Talley packed one for Kimye's wedding, and Rachel Zoe says summer is "caftan weather."

    And for good reason: They're super comfortable, super easy to wear, and can be super flattering. SUPER I TELL YOU!

    Celebrities love to start weird style trends. Whether it's saggy jeans, the "Rachel" hairdo, Miami Vice-style pink men's jackets, sequined gloves, bras on the outside, or black bras under white shirts, well, let's just say we have celebrities to (not) thank for a lot of fashion disasters. The latest, however, has to be stranger than the rest. It's celebrities without pants! Perhaps because these celebs are so damn busy, they've lately seemed to just forget about the whole pants thing when they leave the house. Though let's be honest, nothing a celeb does is a mistake -- so the missing pants must be deliberate. Check out these six celebs who left their pants at home ... or somewhere.

    Can we all please breathe a sigh of relief that this year's theme for the Met Gala wasn't punk rock again? I mean, I don't pretend to be a fashion expert or anything, but some of the looks for last year's fashion-forward party were pretty ... um ... very strange. Also Kim Kardashian wore a carpet bag or, as we reported last year, camouflage for grandma's living room.

    Nope, this year the theme for the annual fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute (and zee premiere NYC event of zee season, dahling) was "Charles James: Beyond Fashion." In case you didn't know, Charles James was a premier fashion designer in the mid-twentieth century and has been regarded as "America's First Couturier."

    If you want to spot every celebrity currently walking the earth, all you have to do is fly to California, throw on the tiniest denim cut-offs you can find (extra points if they're fringed), and attend Coachella -- the hottest music festival in the history of music festivals. The 3-day event is heaven for famous people, who use it as an opportunity to mingle among the common people -- yeah, right -- and, more importantly, show off insane outfits and accessories that would get them laughed at by Joan Rivers if they tried to wear them anywhere outside of the Colorado Desert.

    Celebs may think time and good taste stand still while they're dancing their butts off at Coachella (cough, cough Leonardo DiCaprio), but we know better. And we're here to harshly judge the 10 outrageous looks these celebrities attempted to pull off at this year's festival.

    After I finished breastfeeding my fourth baby and lost most of my baby weight, I was pretty depressed about my boobs.

    I realize I'm not supposed to say that because it sounds vain. Plus, they fed my children and that's amazing! And awesome!

    And yes that's great, really it is, but I miss my old breasts.

    As it turns out, half of my problem was that I was wearing the wrong bra. Maybe you are too.
