There really was no question what this week’s video would be after only two days of voting. The fishtail braid was the overwhelming favorite from the start. Luckily, I have a lot of experience in the department of fishtail braiding. The first time I did a fishtail “how to”, the fine folks at Neihule Salon in Los Angeles were kind enough to walk us through. I had never attempted to fishtail at that point in time and to be quite honest, I had lots of knots before getting the hang of it. The fishtail, like many things in life, takes plenty of practice before perfecting.
So, while you may not get the hang of it right away, I promise with a little bit of persistence, you’ll have it down pat. Once you do, you’ll be amazed how simple it was all along. I even find myself just idly fishtail braiding when bored.
With the arrival of summer comes the arrival of outdoor music festivals. The first of which to kick things off is Coachella. Coachella is not only one of the bigger music festivals, it’s one of the most photographed. Let’s just say it’s a sartorialist’s wet dream. The look is usually a bit boho meets Beverly Hills, but some have taken the hippy dippy look to extremes. I can’t say I’ve ever had the desire to camp out for three days with no working plumbing, but if you happen to be someone who favors the port-o-potty over pate, then perhaps you’re headed out that way this weekend. If that’s the case, you may be thinking, “What to wear? What to wear?” Well, I’ve come up with three looks that are sure to have you looking like you’re with the band. (Just please do me a favor and keep your shoes on).
The side boob isn’t really anything new, but in the past couple of years, it’s been making a pretty strong campaign to be the new sexy skin . Could it be? Side boob the new cleavage? Somehow the side boob is sexy without being slutty. It’s suggestive without being too saucy. Celebrities have been spotted all over town letting their mammaries sneak out the side to catch some fresh air. I’m talking about good girls like Ann Hathaway and Lauren Conrad. I mean, it’s not like I’m using Lindsay Lohan as my moral compass. Even magazines have taken notice of this sneaky sideways trend and April’s covers are smattered with side boob.
This past weekend, I slipped into a new dress that was not exactly brassiere friendly. So, I snapped that baby right off and wore the dress sans support. When I gave myself a gander in the mirror, I wondered, “Is there such a thing as too much side boob?” Well, what could I do but take a quick poll on Twitter?:
Question: is there such a thing as too much side boob?
Uh, Dad, if you’re reading… I absolutely wore a sweater over this. When I arrived at my destination, there were a few more young children than I had anticipated so I did keep my arms mostly glued to my sides so as to avoid any awkward nursing attempts. What did everyone else think of my free flowing friends? The general consensus was positive. Both males and females commented on my peek-a-boo sideshow. Granted, I did get a couple of not so friendly glances from a few women, but I guess that’s to be expected. It seems that the side boob is also less offensive than the over the top push up cleavage of days yore.
So, now I ask you, my lovely WhyDid readers: Is “side boob” the new cleavage? And is there such a thing as too much?
