  • Shoes to Wear with Jeans0

    I treat the months of January and February as a sort of style hibernation. It’s cold, so you want to pile on your warmest, which might not be your most stylish, garments. You don’t want to wear anything too delicate for fear it could get ruined by snow, ice, and wind. And chances are you’re

  • UPMC Expert: Enjoy Winter and Avoid the Emergency Department0

    Winter in Pennsylvania at times is a winter wonderland.
