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 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.

Our writers from The Stir were eager to talk about the shutdown and how it makes them feel about the folks on Capitol Hill. Check out our video discussion in this week's Moms Matter Google Hangout.
Some said an 'Arab' or 'Indian,' as they called Davuluri, shouldn't wear the Miss America crown. Others said her win was a slap in the face to the victims of 9/11.
What the what?!The story blew up here on The Stir -- plenty of you had something to say about it. As it turned out, so did our writers. Check out our video discussion on the controversy surrounding the latest Miss America:
If you've been looking for a more comfortable alternative to heels, you're in for a treat this fall.
Booties and shooties -- a lace-up boot/shoe hybrid -- are everywhere this fall. You can wear them this season with dresses and skirts for a fashion-forward look, which is great because they're much more practical than stilettos.
