Why Did You Wear That: On the Rink of Greatness
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did You Wear That?

famous figure skatersSpeaking of arctic blasts (from the past) the 22nd Winter Olympics will be kicking off from Sochi, Russia in a mere month.  So, how coincidental (or is it?) that skater skirts have made a bigger comeback than Nancy Kerrigan after that whole Tonya Harding incident.  Show me a girl who didn’t dream of gliding on ice like Kristi Yamaguchi or long to be a spandex clad Tara Lipinksi and I’ll show you a girl who wasn’t old enough to remember the ’94 Olympics.  (Side note: I just did the math on that and it’s frightening).  Anyhow, reminiscent of Michelle Kwan and Oksana Baiul, the skater skirt is the perfect skirt to skate right through winter.  Worn with slightly less maribou and maybe equal parts sequins and this wardrobe reboot is just begging to be twirled in.  Not to mention it would most certainly look sensational with a crop top.

Beauty Buzz: Brow Down
Written by: WhyDid | Beauty Buzz

famous eyebrowsLong gone are the days of over tweezed and drawn on eyebrows.  The full brow is back and better than ever as seen on the Spring 2012 runways.  Everyone from Naeem Khan to Derek Lam channeled their Brooke Shields a la The Blue Lagoon. In seasons past, the bleached brow had made an appearance, but this spring, it’s all about the statement making power brow.

filled in brows I suffer from having fairly light and fairly thin eyebrows naturally, so I have to fill them in just to make ‘em look normal using  Tarte’s EmphasEYES brow pencil in Taupe on a day to day basis.   Rosie Huntington Whitely swears by Laura Mercier’s Brow Powder.  It’s time to find your power tool for banging brows.  The look is full, groomed, and face framing.  It is also important to find the right shape for your face as well.  I have found that just having a groomed brow makes me immediately appear more polished and adds an extra impact to my eyes.
