    A cancer survivor who wore a tutu during a race was made fun of in the April issue of Self and was extremely offended, to say the least.

    The magazine writer declared war on tutus worn during races in a column called "The BS Meter." Underneath a photo of two women wearing superhero T-shirts and tutus -- one of whom was Monika Allen, who was undergoing chemo for brain cancer -- the caption read: ”A racing tutu epidemic has struck NYC’s Central Park, and it’s all because people think these froufrou skirts make you run faster. Now, if you told us they made people run from you faster, maybe we would believe it.”

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion, especially when it comes to fashion, but this Self writer was totally off-base and ill-informed.

    Eczema flare-ups mean you can't do a lot of things. Among them: you should avoid acidic foods, sweating, and itching. Especially the itching.

    But while there might be plenty of restrictions, there are also plenty of things that you should do. Case in point: You CAN be stylish even when you are going through an uncomfortable flare-up. Here's how.

    Sigh. As much as I hate to say it, I'm really starting to think that the idea of looking professional in any way, shape, or form is a thing of the past. Don't believe me? I have proof.

    Get a load of these Dress Pant Yoga Pants, which are exactly what they sound like. They're yoga pants masquerading as slacks. They give you the ability to wear your workout gear to work so you don't have to bother changing before hitting the mat once business hours are over.

    And I know what you're probably thinking. "Yoga pants that double as work pants? Score! Who wouldn't want these?"

    I'm sorry, but I wouldn't be caught dead in these things -- at the office.

    Just a couple of days after the sheer black dress incident that had us clued in to Kim Kardashian's issue with some sort of bra malfunction, the new mama once again is seen out and about in all black. But this time it's totally different. Not just literally day and night, but from glam to super casual. Dare I say, however, that Kim looks even more amaze in her zippered up to there sweatshirt and sneakers?

    I mean, most women, when we put on workout clothes, our looks isn't quite as polished. Or maybe that's just me. But Kim ... she makes workout clothes look hotter than our regular clothes.

    A lot has been made of Kim Kardashian's body and style choices lately. She's been working out hard to lose the baby weight (*vomit* sorry, I spew every time I type that phrase, it's a reflex). Headlines proclaim "Kim's Body Is Back." Unless she was astrally projecting in order to better spy on the heads of Throbtron, her body is where, you know, she left it. Attached to her head.

    I have been fascinated lately, however, by what Kim's wearing to and from the gym. Kim was just spotted in a black and gray mostly-Spandex ensemble. Before you start sharpening your scythes and lighting your torches, this was work-casual Spandex, not ass-displaying Spandex -- and it was pretty great.

    It's football season once more. You know what that means. No, no, I'm not talking about your Fantasy Football League gearing up again. I'm talking about ladies thinking it is a good idea to go around wearing football jerseys. Ugh. Excuse me while I throw up into the bag I keep just for this purpose.

    Look, I support boyfriend jeans and oversized button-downs. I've got no beef with ladies wearing ties or a shoe that could be described as "mannish". I've long been a fan of Annie Hall, and as such, I think ladies who can pull off that look should! I just think that broads in jerseys are the exception to this rule.

    Every year around the Oscars, I happen to catch a segment on some fashion show telling me what the newest trend is, based on this year's hit movies. I recall the first of these segments aired a couple years back during a pre-Oscar lineup. I was informed that with the success of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, I would start to see a lot of people in new blockbuster-inspired fashions.

    What I loved most was when they mentioned that "even moms could get in on the trend." Really? Even frumpy ol' moms could get in on the crappy trend some PR person thought up to help put tushes in seats? Wow, we moms are lucky. Here are a couple of those fashions touted to us that I find truly ridiculous:

    You can tell a lot about a person by his or her workout gear. Some people's gym clothes seem worn to hide the body -- baggy sweats, oversized, long-sleeved T. I've seen people wearing what looks like regular work clothes on the treadmill. Like maybe they couldn't change before they came to the gym? Maybe they didn't want to? And then there are the people who go all out with the sexy -- butt-hugging Spandex shorts, cropped bust-hugging Spandex half-tops. Not to mention full-makeup, hair, and earrings. But I don't think I've ever seen anyone sexy up her workout quite as much as Courtney Stodden. You have to take a gander at her workout outfit. Tell me your jaw doesn't drop. You're lying.

    In the past 30 years, many accepted practices have changed. What people considered normal and safe back then -- transporting your newborn in the front-seat, having a latchkey kid at age 6, and letting them explore the woods with no parental guidance -- is pretty much grounds for arrest these days. But, in that simpler time they call the '80s, there were some great ideas that I'm thinkin' we should totally revive -- the way Disney Channel stars have brought back overly-sequined attire, off-the-shoulder shirts, and leopard print day-glow leggings!

    Thanks, Shake It Up, I can barely look at my daughter without retinal strain!

    Let's be clear: some of these suggestions could possibly get you arrested (by Joan Rivers and the fashion police), but I think they're worth bringing back, or are they? You decide ...

    Be honest, how many days a week do you go to get dressed with every intention of putting on a cute outfit -- only to break down and throw on yoga pants because they're just so darn comfy you can't help yourself?

    All moms do it, because we're smart, and because it's a whole hell of a lot easier to manage the gazillion things we have to do on any given day if we aren't confined by zippers, buttons, and the like.

    Just yesterday, I woke up and went to the closet and grabbed a pair of jeans, and then the work-at-home mom in me kicked in and said, "Wait a minute -- I'm not leaving the house today, so why waste a good pair of jeans? Yoga pants it is."
