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.

Making the rounds on Facebook today is a totally asinine article from the Wall Street Journal, called 'The Mommy Business Trip.'
In it, writer Katherine Rosman manages to reduce popular women's blogging, lifestyle and crafting conferences to a way for stay-at-home moms to party without their husbands or kids-- and by "party," I mean, sleep late, dance, tweet, and most importantly, raid the minibar.
In case you're having trouble visualizing such debauchery, the WSJ helpfully provided a graphic, with drawings of these so-called moms, all of whom appear to be visiting our planet from the year 1983.
The online version also includes a video interview with Rosman, who can barely conceal her eyerolls as she describes some of the most popular conferences, including Mom 2.0, which is taking place next week (and where our own Tracy Odell is speaking).
Predictably, bloggers are going public with their fury. See what they have to say after the jump.
Imagine how frightened you'd be if you got the news about the Boston Marathon explosions knowing that your own husband was there.
That was the reality for a CafeMom producer. She and a few writers from The Stir joined us for this week's Moms Matter Google Hangout to talk about the bombing and how it's affecting the nation's moms in particular.
