Why Did You Wear That: Hut, Set, Whatever.
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did You Wear That?

superbowl 2014

This Sunday the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks will face off at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.  (full disclosure: I just Googled that to make sure).  Besides being the best thing that’s happened to New Jersey since the Jersey Shore being canceled, this also means that we, ladies, have the opportunity to spend the afternoon in a room with a captive male audience.  Oh, you actually came to watch the game?  I’m actually here for the finger food and legitimate reason for pushing snooze on Monday morning.

My dad often texts me about football games and I attempt to give spirited responses because I know he cares… but sadly, I do not.  I’m not like a football hater and I might care a little more if a team relevant to me was playing (Steelers, Giants), but I kind of don’t care either way.  It’s the same way I feel about tofu.  Meh.  Without question, you will never see me in a bar wearing a football jersey.  Or face paint.  Though, Miley’s got me a little more interested in foam fingers as of late.  I’m probably  not friends with anyone wearing any of the aforementioned sports paraphernalia either, but I’m sure there are some exceptions.  Like an actual football player.  But alas, I do understand the need to show a little team spirt- I was cheerleading captain for heaven’s sake.  Clever little ladies can achieve a sporty chic look by wearing a pop of their team’s color in slouchy sweatshirts, colorful kicks, or mini t-shirts boasting the teams logo.  And denim is always a good look.

 1. Nike Denver Broncos Super Bowl T-Shirt, 2. Nike Dunk Sky Hi Shoes in Armory Navy, 3. Hanky Panky Signature Lace Low Rise Thong in Screaming Orange, 4. Acne Studios Bird Fleece Sweatshirt, 5. Current/Elliot The Stiletto Distressed Skinny Jeans, 6. Seattle Seahawks Navy Antigua NFL Womens Signautre Hoodie, 7. Rag & Bone Capri Cropped Skinny Jeans, 8. Splendid Snowpeak Plaid Button Down Shirt, 9. Deborah Marquit Giardino di Fiori Lace Thong, 10. Vans Authentic Sneaker

But, if you’re anything like me and you could care less about either team and are betting only on running out of salsa before chips, then you may want to just stick to the home (New York) team uniform.  All black everything.  Not only will you still look slim after housing a plate of nachos, you also won’t look like an a-hole wearing the losing team’s color postgame– which really makes you the winner, now doesn’t it?

Setting the Mood: Hallucinate a Heatwave
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

Mark Twain once said, “The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.”  Well, he certainly wasn’t kidding.  One would think living in California is all palm trees and sunshine… well, not so much.

After returning from the east coast this week, I realized how much I miss a real summer.  You know, the almost unbearable heat that lingers long past sunset and the humidity that can curl even the most perfectly coifed ‘do.  While it rarely dips below forty in California, the summers are never as warm as those of the east coast.  It never, ever feels like summer.  ”They” tell me it gets warm starting in September, but I don’t buy it.

These bright brights are just going to have to get me through the mild California summer.  Perhaps wearing something bright will radiate its own heat.

Why Did You Wear That: Get Sprung- Spring Did.
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did You Wear That?

Spring is officially here, so it’s time to overhaul your closets.  Time to toss the sweaters and leggings (thank god) and get ready to show some skin.  It’s time to stimulate our economy (it’s called being proactive).  So what if Obama’s trying to take back everyone’s bonuses?  Might as well look cute in the poorhouse.

  • Leather jacket- Wear it with jeans and a tank or over a long maxi dress. Works with both and gives you an easy “I didn’t try too hard” look. (Don’t worry, if you’re feeling timid, you don’t have to go with black. Try a shade of grey or tan).

  • Body Con dress- What have you been going to the gym for?  Shed off those extra layers and show off your toned bod.
