Red carpet season officially kicked off this week with the 70th Annual Emmy Awards! Our favorite stars were in the mood for romance in ethereal gowns. Pink was a popular color choice, from pastel to magenta. We also saw monochromatic looks in white and always-sophisticated black, plus a number of plunging necklines that left little to the imagination and more elegant strapless gowns. To be honest, more celebs made our "what were they thinking when they chose that" list than our best-dressed... However, at MSL we prefer to focus on the positive, so here are the ladies on our best-dressed list. ...Read more.

It doesn't seem like long ago I was anxiously awaiting her birth. Like most first-time moms, I was worried about knowing when I was supposed to go to the hospital, or what to watch for if something wasn't right and I needed medical attention. It was the birthing class for parents at the hospital that put me over the edge. Granted, they give you a lot of helpful information, but it seriously drove my anxiety up a few levels. In part due to my anxiety and in part due to my doctor wanting to take the weekend off I think, I ended up going in to be induced the day before my due date, which turned into 18 hours of labor and ...Read more.
We all have a story to tell. Our personal style is one way we communicate who we are without saying a word. Our look may change with our moods, but certain elements of our style stay constant. Some of us gravitate towards tailored looks. Others to feminine or boho. And, still others to whimsical or eclectic. I lean towards tailored and feminine myself. I rarely pass up a structured blazer, beautiful lace dress or ruffled top, as my closet will attest. Our jewelry is the frosting we add to complete our look. It is key to creating a unique personal style and telling our story. And, who better to help us shape our style ...Read more.
Be the change you want to see in the world. Our friend Sutji Prasetiowati takes this mantra to heart. She recently started a line of positive message tees with the goal of helping the people of Haiti and along the way providing us with a great item for our insta pages. The tees are just $20 on Etsy and messages range from "Dare to Dream" to "Boss Babe" to my personal favorite, "she believed she could so she did." For every shirt sold, a percentage of the proceeds helps provide nutritious meals and clean water to thousands of impoverished children and families in Haiti. Do good while spicing up our 'gram... we can ...Read more.
