Why Did You Wear That: Over the Knees and Through the…

By |November 21st, 2015|Why Did You Wear That?|

over the knee boots suedeFall basically gives you any and all reasons to step up your shoe game- and by that, I mean boots.  Motorcycle, stiletto, fringed, and flat, one that always stands out (and up) is the over the knee boot.  Don’t look to the OTK boot if you’re not trying to garner attention and perhaps a handful of suitors.  Wearing an OTK option adds instant sex appeal to any outfit and there’s something to be said about Julia Robert’s boots in Pretty Woman.  But, if you’re not looking to get picked up by the likes of Richard Gere in a Porsche, then perhaps these flat show stoppers are the more modest in between option for you.  Wear them with skirts and dresses while the weather still allows for a glimpse of skin and then pair them with your jeans and cozy cashmere when winter rolls in.

Why Did You Wear That: F*ck It. We’re Done with Pants.

By |October 2nd, 2014|Celebrity Style, Why Did You Wear That?|

celebrity sheer dressesCelebrities just can’t seem to keep their pants on and this time it doesn’t involve hacked photos, the  iCloud, or Miley Cyrus.  This past week alone, a slew of celebrities have forgone covering up their bits and pieces by wearing barely there ensembles leaving very little to the imagination.  From Miranda Kerr to Cara Delevigne, sheer panels gave us peeks at their toned thighs, tummies, and places Pilates pays off.  Even North West got in on the action while accompanying mom, Kim, to the Givenchy show in Paris.  Why shouldn’t a toddler have a custom creation when sitting front row at Paris Fashion Week?  Step your game up Gymboree.  This nearly nude trend is nothing new though, as we saw here on Erin Fetherston two Octobers ago.

F*ck it.

Friday Frocks: Hittin’ the Books

private school girlsWhat’s easier than having a plaid skirt and button down laid out for your every morning?  A smart little dress that requires no mixing or matching because it is an entire outfit in and of itself.  Geek out in something plaid or opt for a collar that needs no popping.  The hardest thing about getting dressed in the morning will be deciding which shoes to wear.

Why Did You Wear That: Cover Your Bases

By |August 5th, 2014|Why Did You Wear That?|

national underwear day peep showThere are times in life when one must practice a bit of discretion- like the times where my friends have to remind me that what I classify as “shirts” aren’t in reality and in “polite society” considered shirts.  They’re more like long line bralettes.  And honestly, if my bust wasn’t as robust, I might actually be able to get away with a bit more skin.  But alas, that is not the case, so I’ve had to take a quick course in Modesty 101.  This past weekend when I was informed that I would be attending a cocktail party with one of my best gal pals, her boo, and a guy I’d formerly hidden from, I packed one of my favorite T by Alexander Wang backless dresses and heels that I get stopped on the street about.  “Backless” more often than not is synonymous with “bra-less.”  As to not offend my friend, I also stashed one of my secret weapons that I acquired as a lingerie buyer, silicone nipple covers.  Sure, they aren’t exactly sexy (ever wanna look like a department store mannequin?), but they prevent corneal damage and idle cocktail party gossip.  That reminded me of all the little tricks of the trade that I was privy to and wanted to share with my fellow crop top loving cohorts.  Collect these Macgyver approved undergarments below and never let your nipples be the only lasting impression at the party… because it’s just not that kind of party.
