Friday Frocks: I’m Just a Love Machine
Written by: WhyDid | Friday Frocks

i need valentino

 

Single or taken, Valentine’s Day conveniently falls on a Friday this year and so more likely than not, you will be leaving the confines of your cozy apartment to take on the town.  So, you may as well get into the spirit of this force fed love fest.  You don’t necessarily have to sausage yourself into a spandex red dress, although I’m sure those will be aplenty.  Opt for something softer in shades of pink or go bold in a graphic print be it floral, hearts, or darling polka dots.

Friday Frocks: Skating Right Along
Written by: WhyDid | Friday Frocks

ice princessOnly thing a true ice princess needs this winter more than a whimsical skater skirt is a flirty, flippy, skater frock – just ask Michelle Trachtenberg.  This silhouette is especially kind to those who have trim waists but may view their thighs as the type that are thunderous.  It’s also great for someone who’s a bit more straight up and down and looking to add a little volume to her svelte shape.  If you fear this looking too feminine much like Michelle and myself, layer a tough leather jacket on top and slip into a pair of rugged moto boots.  Another option for styling a skater dress is wearing it over a turtleneck or long sleeve tee to give it a 90′s “jumper” look for the winter months.

Why Did You Wear That: Cocktail Hour
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did You Wear That?

nail art ringsThe one garnish certain to undoubtedly make a drink that much more chic with each clink of the glass is one that you bring to the party yourself.  No, you aren’t going to tote a jar of bleu cheese stuffed olives in your Prada to the next party.  This garnish is right at your fingertips… well, really just your fingers.  The fastest way to add extra bling is by slipping on a cocktail ring while sipping on a cocktail or two.  Originally made popular during the prohibition era as a kind of flamboyant “eff you”, the cocktail ring later became popular with single ladies who wore giant jewels on their right ring fingers as a sign of independence.  Being a woman looking forward to planting a kiss on no one other than her pooch this year, I like the idea of a cocktail ring in that context.  But whether you’re single or attached, there’s nothing wrong with adding an extra rock for cocktail hour.

Why Did or Why Don’t: Back(pack) for More
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did or Why Don't?

backpack style fashionEvery girl needs a bag within which she can lug around all kinds of things that a man would never fathom being necessary on a day to day basis.  We stow little items that may very well come in handy when handling an unaccounted for crisis.  You call them frivolous, we say functional.  It is the Girl Scout motto afterall, “Always be prepared.”

And with this 90′s resurgence it’s no wonder we are revisiting the backpack bonanza from last year.  This time, however, it seems just about every designer that’s ever played in the handbag arena has thrown his/her pack in the ring.  From Mr. Wang to MK and Ashley, there are backpacks crafted from studded leather to luxe leopard.  Take your pack—er, pick.  But will you be partaking in this trend?  Or is it something we should leave back in social studies class?

On the upside: they do look pretty cute and who doesn’t want yet another chance to channel Cher Horowitz?  It’s also great to just fling that baby on your shoulders and continue making overly dramatic hand gestures in conversation without that pesky handbag getting in the way.  However, have you ever tried retrieving something from your stylish sack while it’s still in place on your back?  Awkward.  Trust me, you won’t be going for your iPhone nearly as often(which, could be another one to add to the upside).  And along with looking like the teenage freak that you once were while trying to fetch a stick of Big Red from your satchel, backpacks pose as open invitations to pickpocketers, especially in a city like New York.

So, you be the judge… are backpacks back?
