Sometimes the uber-glitzy, sunshiney, picture-perfect, I'm-ready-for-my-close-up world on the internet makes me want to retreat to a snow-covered cabin deep in the woods. I know I've said this before , but sometimes the internet makes me crazy. Here's why. ...

When Is It Time to Say Good-Bye to Your Clothes?
One of my style resolutions this year, well every year actually, is to wear what I own. And if I don't, to make the ultimate decision to get rid of what I'm not wearing.  Even though I have a small closet, wearing what I own is harder than it sounds. Especi...

Snow Pant "Chic"
Unless you live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, you probably missed the snow pants controversy last week. And even if you live here, you might have missed it. I almost did.  Seems that Shannon Proudfoot, who writes for Maclean's magazine, started the whole deba...

Leather Pants Redux. Again and Again.
