Why Did You Wear That: Cover Your Bases
Written by: admin | 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.

Friday Frocks: Queen of the Night

queen of the nightIt’s ironic that someone who spent the majority of her life obsessed with apparel and who threw her very first temper tantrum at the tender age of two over a pair of shoes would rather spend most of her time as an adult wearing as little as possible without catching a charge for indecent exposure.  But the moment the door clicks closed behind me, all bets are off and so are my clothes.  It should come as no surprise then, that when the summer heat kicks into full swing causing me to question whether or not I’m suffering from early menopausal hotflashes, that I will find any means possible to wear what might equate to a tissue’s amount of fabric as a frock.  I’ve been known to wear a nightie to a cocktail party and I don’t see why I should deprive the streets or the city from the same royal treatment… day or night

Friday Frocks: Festival Friendly

gypsyThe dress code at Coachella is basically the opposite of the Meatpacking District on a Saturday night.  That’s right, ladies.  Leave your skin tight bandage dresses in the closet… better yet your donation pile.  For an outdoor music festival it’s best to be in something loose and free flowing- something that doesn’t require platform pumps as an accessory.  Why not opt for a frock sure to set your gypsy soul free, even if you aren’t hanging in the desert this weekend.

Why Did You Wear That: Erin Go Bra the Sequel
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did You Wear That?

green lingerie editorialI voiced how I feel about being told to wear green on St. Patrick’s Day, but the little lacy loophole in my qualm is a pretty little bit of lingerie.  And in spirit of the Irish phrase, “Erin go bragh,” meaning essentially, “Ireland forever,” let’s slip into something any lucky leprechaun would approve of.  Forget green beer, here are green bras.
