I love the line Olympia Dukakis delivers in Steel Magnolias about being separated from the animals by our ability to accessorize. While that sentiment might be a bit dramatic, there’s no denying it - accessories can add flair, style, color, and personality to any outfit.
The right scarf, belt, necklace, hat, shoe or handbag can “zhuzh” a look in an instant. It can be the difference between “ho-hum” and “home-run”! And the fun about where we are in the evolution of fashion right now is... the more accent pieces, the better!
I keep my fashion... Continue Reading

“We Are Family” is a song that most everyone of a certain age knows. It was a hit for Sister Sledge in 1979. If you try, I’ll bet you can hum the melody and probably even sing a few verses.
“We are family,
I’ve got all my sisters with me.”
Now, imagine a six-year-old singing karaoke with his fifty-year-old aunt to the track of that thirty-year-old song. Well, that was just one of the delightful moments from my family’s reunion last month!
Family is the most important thing, and there is nothing better than coming together to celebra... Continue Reading

It’s well known that Mike Rowe, the host of the Dirty Jobs show, used to be a host on QVC. I’ve never met him -- his tenure was before my time, but he has said that QVC was his first job in television. It was mine too! But before I found myself here, I had a few other jobs along the way.
In honor of Labor Day, I thought it would be fun to play a little “Guess Who” game with the AM Style gang. I’ve asked our models and guests about some of their former jobs. The work experience among them has been, well... interesting.

When I say “haul” what comes to mind?
If you’re thinking of the verb meaning to drag, pull or tow something, then you haven’t seen YouTube lately. The “haul” or more accurately, the “haul video” has become quite a phenomenon.
A haul is a bounty of products purchased or acquired, and a haul video is a showcase of shopping conquests. There are haul videos for fashion and for scrapbooking and crafts. There are hauls from certain stores and and for specific brands. There are even hauls for seasons and events like “fall” and “back-... Continue Reading

My nephew is headed to college and texted to ask if I would order a blender for him for his new apartment. He’s an athlete and power smoothies are apparently a daily staple.
Anyway, I was happy to help. The only problem was, the blender he wanted was the TSV (Today’s Special Value), and I got his message while I was on board a plane leaving for vacation. I didn’t have the option of waiting until I returned home to place the order because I wanted the TSV price, and we were seconds away from the flight attendant instructing everyone to turn off their electronic devices. Sma... Continue Reading

Can you believe we are starting to talk about transitioning our wardrobe to fall?
This morning as we shot this video, it was a little cool so it helped me get in the spirit.

I grew up in Fresno, California where July temperatures averaged 95 degrees, and summer highs in the 100s were commonplace. I’ve had a lot of practice keeping cool on hot days.
The weather pros are forecasted record heat in West Chester last weekend, so I’ve been thinking about my favorite ways to stay cool. Swimming is great if you have a pool, and a lounge-chair under a shade tree is perfect on a hot sunny day. But staying inside where it’s air-conditioned and comfy may be the best choice of all.
What is your favorite way to cool off on a hot day?
Whatever t... Continue Reading

We’ve all written the age-old school essay: How I Spent My Summer Vacation -- most likely in second or third grade. The topic has been the subject of school reports and ‘show and tell’ since the beginning of time.
The essays typically consisted of a few strung together sentences like: I went to camp. I visited grandma. I rode my new bike. It was a great summer.
So here are my few strung together sentences: I went to California for my nephew’s graduation and threw a rockin’ party for him and his friends. I spent time with Badge (my father was a police officer), o... Continue Reading

There are certain events that mark time in our lives. That is never more evident than graduation season.
The first time I met Jayne Brown’s daughters was when, as a new host, Jayne brought her girls to the studio for a look around. I remember meeting Lauren and Chelsea as little girls with dolls in hand. Lauren graduated from college last week. How time flies...
When I was hired as a host in 1995, my first (and at the time only) nephew, Blake, was barely a year old. Nothing was more important than family to my mother, and she was concerned that my new job 2,500 miles away would k... Continue Reading

I enjoy a good magazine quiz. You know the type -- it grabs you with a bold headline like, “Do You Have A Fashion Clue?” or “Are You Compatible With Your Wardrobe?” And then what follows is typically a list of true or false or or multiple choice questions. In the end, there’s an answer key printed inside a box with the type inverted and upside down. The payoff for time spent completing the quiz can range from interesting to hilarious.
Well earlier this week a face shape quiz caught my eye. If you read last week’s blog, I mentioned my fondness for new sungla... Continue Reading
