While most of you were probably traipsing along white beaches and showing your Britneys to the Girls Gone Wild crew, only to eventually take down a governor, I was experiencing our spring break as more...

MOA or MIA?

March 12, 2008

I really, really respect the Mall of America. After all, Minnesota gets to boast it has the biggest mall in the entire country, and even greater, down the street was the first "shopping mall" EVER, better...

A little style ‘TLC’

February 27, 2008

I don't have much time for TV, but some shows I make sure to catch regularly, like TLC's "What Not to Wear." Here's a hypothetical: A girl is seen by her friends meandering through Dinkytown on Sunday...

February 6, 2008

Where Life Meets Style: Style me buff

January 30, 2008

.OK! I couldn't do it. I tried really, really hard. I told everyone about it, and they were all very supportive. But in the end - well, the beginning, that is - I ran. I ran so far away. I took one look...

Where Life Meets Style: Celebr(08)!

January 23, 2008

Where Life Meets Style: Winter wonders

November 28, 2007

Where Life Meets Style: The Untouchables

November 21, 2007

As you read this, I'm probably deep in the heart of Iowa's grassy brown fields, bustling down Interstate 35W to get to my Thanksgiving destination. But I got to thinking how I've always wanted to discuss...

Where Life Meets Style: Secrets and the city

November 14, 2007

Where Life Meets Style: Passing the bar

November 7, 2007

Where Life Meets Style — walk(ER) it out

October 31, 2007

I'm really excited. Not only has the Burberry store opened at MOA, but there also seems to be quite of few Halloween parties going on this weekend! One more chance to whip up a fright, which by my survey...

Where Life Meets Style — Frightening fashions

October 24, 2007

Where Life Meets Style – A hump day Q and A

October 17, 2007

So, my little fashion felines, do I have a treat for you! In the words of a certain "cool mom" circa LiLo's glory days, "a hump-day treat." As many of you probably don't know, the Twin Cities isn't that...

Where life meets style — Mind your style

October 10, 2007

Last Friday night I went downtown and stopped at the ATM at that skeezy place in between the Gay '90s and that Dreamgirls joint. This little shanty reminds me of New York because it's quite the little...

Where Life Meets Style — My bff, the murse

October 3, 2007

I was flipping through the October issue of the Rake magazine, casually sipping my jumbo-sized latte, when I found a fashion spread on men's bags. Christy DeSmith usually does the fashion reporting, and...

Where Life Meets Style — Paging style and taste

September 26, 2007

Where life meets style — Fashioning fall

September 19, 2007

I have some juicy news to report! As some of you might know, the Mall of America is in the midst of deals to expand its already mega-watt space. One of the ideas that's pretty much a for-sure is a high-end...

Where life meets style — Style: It’s all around U!

September 12, 2007
