Erin Kane is the mom of two kids -- and quite a sport, though she cleans up nice, too (see above). She works for Gaylord Sports Management, a full-service boutique agency, and has recently been asked to sit on the advisory panel for ESPN W. And though she looks and sound way too cosmopolitan for it to be true -- Kane resides in Scottsdale.

Give us a childhood memory of you and clothes.
My mom used to make our clothes, and it went one of two ways -- either really cute or really not. She made me and my two sisters these adorable matching dresses for Easter one year, same pattern, but a different color for each of us. She also made me these horrible powder blue corduroy pants with an elastic waist and wide legs in the first grade. I think that was the first time I asserted myself about clothes.
Name five items every (woman/man) should have in (his/her) closet.
I can't! Everyone's lifestyle is different. For me, with an office job and two kids, I need outfits that are easy to put together, so a go-to dress, a well-tailored shirt that can go with slacks or jeans, black slacks, a favorite pair of jeans that can be dressed up or down, and a comfy t-shirt that hides stains.
Name an item of clothing that's best when it's vintage.
I love vintage dresses.
Name an item of clothing you should NEVER buy used.
What is your one piece of fashion advice for Phoenix?
Wear sunblock. Does that count?
