Miss A Columnist

I am a WHO DAT LOUISIANA transplant dwelling in the Big D and I can be described as a vogue-a-holic by default, a socialite by nature, and a shoe-preneur by trade. I delight in the unexpected, have a tongue in cheek approach to tradition, never wear just anything, miscellaneous is my favorite category, and lastly – am spoiled by all things fabulous and swanky. I absolutely love the Big D because there is always a wide array of people, places, and things to experience.

Miss A has a presence in 21 U.S. markets, and is the first and leading media outlet covering the intersection of charity and life. With a team of 30 editors and hundreds of writers, we write about charity meeting a part of life – fashion, beauty, sports & fitness, home, food, kids, men, entertainment, business, technology, travel, and education. We shine a spotlight on the best nonprofits, cause marketing products and services, corporate philanthropy and philanthropic people to inspire others to give as they live. Since so much of the Arts are supported by philanthropy, we love covering the arts – performing arts, music, dance, theatre and film.

Founded in 2008 by Andrea Rodgers who has a strong philanthropic track record of her own in Washington, DC, Miss A believes in the positive power of volunteering and charity — not only to benefit those less fortunate, but to improve the individual, business or brand that gives their time, talent and treasure to a cause. Our mission is to shine a spotlight on the best charity events, cause marketing campaigns, philanthropic people, businesses and brands to inspire others to get involved.

With this said, if you have an event you would love for me to cover on Miss A, please contact me at pamreneepr@yahoo.com.

High Maintenance Couture In A Can Mobile Fashion In Dallas

From the runways to the roadways, style has hit the streets! Just when you thought you had seen and imagined it all, High Maintenance Couture In A Can is pulling up and parking on curbs in the Dallas metroplex.

High Maintenance was born by a pair of like-minded women to empower other women through fashion. Rosie Vann-Dalton and Sande Brandt have been dressing Dallas’ most amazing women for the past several years, working with women from all walks of life–from executives to stay at home moms and everyone in between. They provide both classic and cutting edge trends and demonstrate how to wardrobe them throughout every lifestyle–always finding a suitable style for each individual woman to allow her to look the best she can for her figure and lifestyle.

While attending The Weekender Dallas last weekend, I noticed an Air Stream fabulously wrapped with the cutest, eye-catching design parked on the curb outside of the W Hotel. Later that evening, I met the dynamic duo of Rosie and Sande, along with their High Maintenance entourage. As we instantly connected, I learned more about this unique business concept.

You can book a personal styling session or plan a home party with your girlfriends, or they can come to your office. Reserving the Couture Can is a great gift idea for you and/or that fashionista in your life. There is a $250 deposit to reserve, and you can use it toward your personal purchase or split it among friends. No minimum purchase is required and the fee is waived upon a $250 purchase.

To think, this unique vision was inspired simply out of convenience, and by girlfriends who continously wished Rosie and Sande could come to their homes to style them.

It’s funny how some things come full circle. Remember as youngsters, the neighborhood ice cream truck was literally music to our ears. Now that we’re all grown up, there’s another new kind of truck selling a different kind of treat to make us salivate, and with better curb appeal.

High Maintenance Couture In A Can can be found at online, and tell them we sent you!
