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.

Palazzo Pants

Newsflash! In case you hadn’t noticed, this summer has been a real devil-in-red scorcher. Until some fashion designer comes up with the perfect garment solution with a hidden air conditioner panel included, what’s the next best fashion solution? Answer:  Easy, breezy palazzo pants, which keep your wardrobe stylish and your thighs from sticking together. Here’s a few styles, and how to get the look at any price point.

Under $50 Forgo your yoga-ready leggings for these slouchy yet polished knit palazzo pants from Urban Outfitters ($49), which you can belt high on the waist or wear low and laid-back. Kicky, patterned versions from Mango ($50) and Asos ($41) also allow for maximum comfort–plus the tropical and animal prints make them oh-so packable for vacation.

Under $150 For a little more structure, try Zara’s pleated version ($80) or Anthropologie’s cropped wide-leg iteration ($60). Enza Costa’s take on the trend ($121) has a flowy, work-ready vibe, while a vintage, belted pair from Romeo Gigli Vintage ($117) has us seriously channeling “Saturday Night Fever”.

Under $400 Worried about looking frumpy? Go for a high-end material like Alice + Olivia’s stretch crepe ($300) or a kelly-green silk from Madewell ($210). L’Agence’s black, floor-sweeping version ($380) is our office-to-dinner pick, but for a wilder summer night on the town, we’ll take Anna & Boy’s super-chic chevron offering ($385).
