Setting the Mood: Who Wears the Pants?
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

palazzo pants patternHigh summer is probably not the time you think most of waking up, stretching those lanky limbs, and slipping into a pair of slacks.  Much to many of my friends’ chagrin, my main motive when choosing my daily attire is to cover as little as possible with the thinnest layer of fabric conceivable all without contracting a ticket for public indecency.  The caveat in all of this is my phobia of making bodily contact with many of the publicly shared spaces, ie., rash inducing velour seats of the Jitney descent or the unidentifiable, indestructible material of taxi cab cushions. Therefore, in the fear of revisiting a middle school incident of ring worm, there are times when covering up my gams is an absolute must.  Fortunately, this summer, there are plenty of pants that don’t fall under the suffocating category of denim.  Breezy wide leg pants in plenty of patterns are perfect for pairing with croptops and keeping the Center of Disease Control slightly less busy.  And really, what’s the purpose of a pants of dance of if you’ve got no pants to lose?

Setting the Mood: The Dog Days of Summer
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

fashion dogs modelsIf you live in the northern hemisphere, the dog days of summer have just begun.  A phrase used to describe the “sultry” (more like sweaty) days of summer- July and August this side of the equator.  And since I love summer and I most certainly love my darling dog, Smitty, this week will be dedicated mainly to the man who shares my bed, my heart, and sometimes my sandwich.  Sure, I do love diamonds, but if you pressed me to honestly choose between karats and k-9′s, my pup would always reign supreme.  Just ask all my ex-boyfriends.

Setting the Mood: Land of the Free, Home of the Babes
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

4th of july fashionOh how quickly time flies.  I remember last year’s Fourth of July as if it was yesterday.  Much like I always do, I had put off making any actual plans for the holiday, but was fortunate enough to not be left entirely alone as one of my best girlfriends somehow landed herself in the city as well.  To make the best of it, we got a picnic together, gathered our SPF, sunglasses, Whispering Angel, and towels and took them to the roof.  We embraced the day and the sun listening to our favorite Pandora station while partaking in some serious girl talk.  It wasn’t all stars and stripes for us though.  As I was dodging irate phone calls from the guy I was seeing, basically threatening my life if I didn’t find a way to make it to New Hampshire on the next train (do trains even go to New Hampshire?), what appeared to be the set up for a rap video shoot complete with DJ and turntables arrived on my roof.  Again, we attempted to make the best of our dire circumstances as my roof boasted the best view for fireworks that year.  However, when we started being filmed without consent in our teeny bikinis, we packed up and I tried to book the next flight to Manchester.  We never did see the fireworks.   stars stripes fashion

Setting the Mood: Separate but Equal
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

fashion-separatesIf one is good, two’s gotta be better, right?  While I’m starting to think that’s most men in Manhattan’s motto for dating, I’m really talking about the return of separates.  You may hear that word and automatically conjure up an image of your 9th grade algebra teacher wearing elastic waistband polyester pants with matching vest, but separates circa now have come a long way since hiding those formulas in your TI-83 calculator case.  Worn together in bold prints or separately with basics, separates are perfect for a day at the office or a night out on the town.

Setting the Mood: But I’m a 90′s Bitch.
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

90s-fashionAs fashion is cyclical and nothing new is truly original, it’s no surprise that the 90′s are having a major moment (something we’ve discussed before).  With the return of trends like Birkenstocks, babydoll dresses, and scrunchies, we are in the midst of the second coming of Donna Martin and Cher Horowitz.  The funny thing about the 90′s trend is that it seems the consumption is made up mostly by the generation born during that decade.  Which probably explains why we seem to have forgotten all of the cringeworthy trends like, oh, say butterfly clips and plastic outerwear.  I suppose that’s what we do to romanticize most memories though.  And so, let’s hold onto the good and forget about the bad by revisiting a decade responsible for Spice Girls and beanie babies though some would encourage us , “DNR- Do not resuscitate.”
