Why Did You Wear That: Let It All Hang Out

By |July 6th, 2010|Personal Style, Why Did You Wear That?|


As mentioned, one of my favorite Spring trends was the presence of underwear peaking out of outerwear. We spend a lot of money on fine unmentionables and they barely get to see the light of day. (And in my case, only sweet, sweet Smitty gets to see them). Sometimes you gotta give your tittays a rest and a pretty wireless lace bra is just the way to do it. Some people call them “weekend bras” or “sleep bras,” I just call them “hot.” My favorite way to wear one? Peaking out of a slinky, slouchy tank, of course.

My mom is somewhere smacking her hand to her forehead. She spent years trying to get me to hide my bra straps, but alas, I’m now encouraging you all to let em hang, let em swang.



Why Did You Wear That: Shoot for the Stars…

Alpinestars, that is.

Alpinestars was originally started over 40 years ago (1963 to be exact) making motorcycle gear for serious riders, but has now evolved into the rocker chick’s new bff and go to brand.  Designer Denise Focil has created edgy basics and key item pieces that every hip girl needs in her closet.

The line is a collection of  sexy, slouchy tops, vintage T’s,  skinny denim, and, of course,  leather motorcycle jackets.  Already, the line has a serious celebrity following too (Kirsten Dunst, Blake Lively, Whitney Port, Taylor Momsen, Audrina Patridge).  Be warned, this is not a line designed with wallflowers in mind.
