Over the river and through the woods... It's almost Thanksgiving, and if was up to me, the only requirement would be a hair tie and my eating sweats, but in my house, it's a holiday that requires a touch of decorum, and an underwire bra. I mean, we're rarely fancy, but I like to eat warm [...]

Dream the Impossible Dream. Shorts.

There comes a point in your life when you feel comfortable with your thighs rubbing together in hot, public places. I am not at that exit yet. I'm on the exit ramp, off to the side, where the truckers park to sleep. I'm not talking about mentally comfortable. In fact, after 20 hours in a [...]

Halloween 2013

La la laaaa la la.  We didn't have our big Halloween bash this year. I've been injured and in a foul mood about it, plus we're leaving for Florida tomorrow, so things just got a little too busy to properly plan a soiree. Unfortunately, that also means that I didn't have anywhere to don a [...]

If These Spanx Could Talk

We spent last weekend at a wedding for one of Andy's college friends, and it was one of those situations where he was in the wedding, but I was not, and that's fine. Seriously. The less I need longline strapless bras in my life, the better. They always start off okay, but by hour three, [...]

The Mexican Dress

While in Mexico, I fell in love with the gorgeous hand embroidered dresses the Mayan women were selling in their shops. I annoyed all my friends as I ducked into every roadside store digging through piles and piles of fabric, trying to find the perfect dress, my obsession being the sole thing between them and a [...]

Back to School… For Us All

By |2013-08-15T09:19:31-04:00August 15th, 2013|Fashion, Parenting|

Thus begins the ritual of starting off the new school year with pretty clothes that aren't quite faded yet, bookbags free of the mid-year foot smell and goldfish crumbs, and legitimately clean and styled hair. Because what else do I have to do at 6am? Certainly not body slam three kids into the bed so [...]

I Only Rap Caucasinally

I'm working on a bit of a creative project this week, which usually means stress. Something I do not deal with well and usually translates to scenarios like... Brittany eats all the food. Brittany stays up all night writing a Jerry Maguire manifesto. Brittany googles religious cults. Brittany cuts her own bangs.  But I figured [...]

Hello. My name is Brittany. I'm a size 14/16 (18 after Chipotle). I'm addicted to skinny jeans and accessories. And glasses. Super. Adorable. Glasses. And I'm showing absolutely no remorse. This week we have the fabulous Ritzy, stylist from eyeglass powerhouse Rivet & Sway, on hand with a panel of fellow fashion addicts to talk [...]
