Why Did You Wear That: Ugh, Send me the Bill-I’m Bored.

Sure was a good thing that I spent the afternoon reading and napping, cause I am not sure I’ve ever been so bored by an awards show.  The Billboard Music Awards was so slow moving I was left wondering if everyone was handed a Xanax on their way in to their seats.  And that’s not really where my questions end.  Are they actually giving out awards at this thing and is it co-sponsored by Zuhair Murad?  PSY was nominated for multiple awards in the rap category?  Tupac just rolled over in his grave.  Was lip syncing a requirement? Are some of these stars gunning for a spot on next season of Dancing with the Stars?  Did everyone’s invitation get lost in the mail? (Mine did).  Where’s Rihanna when you need her?

Drop crotch leather pants, unicorn t-shirts, body slamming- and no, I’m not describing my weekend.  Ke$sha was looking, well, not like Ke$ha in an ensemble that leads me to believe she just came straight from the pool at Wet Republic.  I understand this isn’t the Oscars, let alone the Met gala, but it was such slim pickings on the “blue carpet” that I nearly threw in the towel and smashed my guitar halfway through watching.  But alas, no one likes a quitter, so here are my picks for best, worst, and WTF?! of the night.

Platinum Bound:

Selena Gomez in Atelier Versace, Taylor Swift in Zuhair Murad, Miley Cyrus in Balmain, Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad

Going Gold:

Alyssa Milano, Kelly Rowland in Rami Al Ali, Stana Katic, Kimberly Perry

Carly Rae Jepsen in Dyanthe, Emmy Rossum in Zuhair Murad, Ke$ha in Givenchy, Jennifer Morrison in Kristian Aadvenik

One Hit Wonders:

Nayer, Z Lala, Jenny McCarthy, Ariana Grande

Maybe I need to take up an instrument.

Setting the Mood: Opposite Day
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

black and white spring trendsThe best way to get through the next two months of below freezing temperatures is to plan ahead.  Plan vacations, plan summer shares, plan spring wardrobes… One of Spring 2013′s trends was the minimalistic and graphic use of black and white shown by everyone from Marc Jacobs to Balmain to Michael Kors.  A long time fan of bold black and white, I am happy to report that this really is one of those trends that would be hard to get wrong… (though I’m sure someone is capable of screwing it up).  You can opt for an actual black and white print or simply pair black and white separates to achieve the look that is clean, crisp, and classic.  Throw em for a loop by accessorizing the look with a red lip or bright bag.

Why Did You Wear That: Party Pants

celebrities wearing printed denimForget your party shoes, this spring it is going to be all about your party pants.  In addition to bright bold denim, designers have shifted focus from fancy tops to fabulous bottoms.  Whether you pick floral, ikat, or animal, be sure to pair your party pants with a simple top.  Wear ‘em during the day to bring some fun to ho hum errands or take ‘em for a spin around the dancefloor just after midnight.

Friday Frocks: Queen of Bling

What’s that you say?  You love looking like a human disco ball?  Well, aren’t you in luck.  Today’s Friday Frocks is for all my fellow blingophiles (yeah, I just made that up. So what?).  If just simple sparkly accessories won’t cut it, yet you aren’t quite comfortable with prancing down the runway in a $2.5M bra like Miranda Kerr, then I’ve got several other sequin covered creations that may very well be right up your alley.

1. French Connection Samantha Sequin Dress, $298, 2.Balmain Silk Stripe Sequin Dress, $4,765, 3. Vintage 90′s High Slit Sequin Dress, $219, 4. Antik Batik Magenta Sequin Dress, $427, 5. Kensie Sequin Dress, $88, 6. Lipsy Shift Dress, $136.35, 7. Rachel Zoe One Sleeve Sequin Dress, $295, 8. Matthew Williamson Liquid Sequin Dress, $3,062, 9. French Connection Lucinda Sequin Dress, $248, 10. TFNC Sequin Dress, $99.99

Remember not to accessorize your blingy dress with more blingy accessories.  This is and “either/or” situation.  I’ll let you and Marilyn fight it out for the title of “Queen of Bling.”

  4. Sienna Miller is absolutely stunning in Stella McCartney. Take note, Riri. This is the way nude is done.
  5. Selita Ebanks steps out and shines in this little number. Not sure who she’s wearing, but it’s a hell of a lot better than that bird get up in Kanye’s Runaway “movie.”
  6. Never thought I’d see the day. Here is Rachel Zoe at Lanvin’s Halloween Party looking the way she always should. Glam.

  10. And last, but most certainly not least we have the absolutely adorable Violet Affleck looking precisely how a little girl should look. Sugar, spice, and everything nice.

Have a wonderful weekend.
