Setting the Mood: On a Roll
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

disco roller skating(You may want to go ahead and turn up this past weekend’s playlist to feel the full effect of this installment of Setting the Mood).

Planning a party for a friend is a lot of work, but also a lot of fun.  While there are lots of intricate details like finding the perfect venue, picking a theme, cupcakes or cake?, and making sure there are plenty of party props, one of the most difficult tasks may be figuring out what to wear.  While doing some research on what exactly made the 70′s and disco era tick, I found that perhaps I showed up during the wrong decade.  With an excess of sparkle and shimmer and an overall sense of carefree ease, these groovy gals really had it figured out.  Throw in some rollerskates and feathered hair a la Farrah Fawcett and you’re all set.

Would You Wednesday: Rockin’ Bobbin’

Recently Katy Perry chopped her locks and lightened her heinous pink hue.  In my opinion, this is the look she should have gone with in the first place.  While I’m not into the whole Strawberry Shortcake haircolor trend, I do think that IF you are… this is the way to go about it.  It’s fun.  It’s subtle.  It’s something only a platinum selling pop star could pull off.  She looks kinda fab, right?

The bob was first made popular in the 1920′s by actresses Colleen Moore and Louise Brooks.  The cut was considered a bold statement of “independence” as girls in the West had historically all had long, quite coiffed tresses.  It became more accepted as women’s long hair interfered with their work during the World War.  The popularity of the bob was reignited once again in the 1960′s by Vidal Sassoon.  The look has stuck around since then in modified versions.

Many a stylish celebrity has shorn her long locks for a bolder, more blunt bob. From Rihanna, to Kate Bosworth, to Victoria Beckham… and even more famously Anna Wintour, these ladies have highlighted their striking facial features with this sleek cut.  So, would you trade in your long locks for a brazen bob?
