Setting the Mood: Private Parts
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

plaid uniform editorialThis time of year, especially around the holidays, plaid plays a very important role in winter wardrobing.   Personally?  I have a penchant for plaid.  I went to plenty of private schools, St. Michael’s, St. Edward’s, and Linsly and maybe that’s where my love of plaid began.  Many may beg to differ, but there’s nothing better than slamming the snooze button knowing that your outfit for school that day is predetermined, so you can afford a few more moments of shut eye.   Honestly, there’s not a lot better than a good school uniform.  For years, I was living out my very own Britney Spears Baby One More Time music video.  Not really sure how the boys (or teachers) concentrated with pretty young things clad in pleated plaid skirts, knee socks, button downs, and blazers.  The worst three years of my life were those spent in public school during my middle school years- not solely for the lack of uniform, because my closet actually quadrupled in size during that time.  I may be the only adolescent on record who begged to go back.  I’m pretty sure it appeared on my Christmas list two years running.  While I did finally get my way, I still wax poetic about inappropriately short plaid skirts (I found myself in the office on more than one occasion for figuring out new and inventive ways to chop off a few inches from mine) and all the iterations of legwear and platform penny loafers.  Fortunately, there are many ways that we can all relive our prep school pasts with grown up plaid pieces.

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.
