Once upon a time, I was a television anchor with a closet stuffed full of designer gear. But when I became a mom, my new uniform consisted of cheap blue jeans and disposable t-shirts.
A few years spent in the mother 'hood and I was ready to claw my way out or die trying-- That's how "She's Still Got It" was born. I believe moms can be pretty, stylish, and on trend. Even on a a ridiculously meager budget. Even in the car rider pick up line.
You've still got it, Mama. And I'd love to help you figure out exactly how to show it off.

Based on my pediatrician's advice, I have made a point of getting my kids and myself a flu shot every single year.
So you'd better believe I sat up and took notice when a Johns Hopkins scientist released a study recently that questions whether the flu shot is as safe and effective as we've been led to believe.
Suddenly, I'm not feeling so good about those flu shots.
The article was written by Peter Doshi, PhD, a scientist at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and published in the British Medical Journal. In it, Doshi had some pretty strong words for the CDC.
Angelina Jolie revealed in TheNew York Times this week that she had a pre-emptive double mastectomy, after discovering that she had the same mutant gene that caused her own mother to die of ovarian cancer at the age of 56.
Jolie's surgery, in the absence of cancer, was shocking on its own -- but what made it even more surprising was the fact that she chose to go public with the news.
Several writers from The Stir gathered in a Google Hangout to discuss Jolie's suprising announcement -- here's what they had to say.
After yesterday's amazing report that three women, all missing for a decade, were found alive, reports are emerging about the women's histories before their abductions -- and in at least two cases, it seems like more should have been done to try and find them.
No Amber Alert was issued the day Gina DeJesus went missing in 2004, because no one saw her abduction. This angered her father, Felix DeJesus. He said Amber Alerts should be issued for any child, whether police believe they've run away or been kidnapped.
Meanwhile, Michelle Knight's disappearance in 2002 was treated with even less concern.
