Would You Wednesday: Wife Under the Knife

By |December 2nd, 2010|Why Did or Why Don't?|

So, I meant to write about this a while ago… actually as soon as I’d seen the promotional commercial for it. Bridalplasty. What the $*#&? Really?

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, (and I applaud you if that’s the case) Bridalplasty is a show on E! where the contestants are competing not only for  dream wedding worth $100,000, but also a brand new face and body.  I attempted to watch the entire show, but I could only get through a portion. Part of that had to do with the sheer ridiculousness of it all and the other part was my inability to stare at Shanna Moakler’s poorly done yellow hair. (I mean, forget Botox, a good dye job can do wonders).  Anyway, most of the girls on the show are already pretty. There is nothing wrong with them. These are not deformed women who have experienced traumatic accidents and disfigurement. I mean, they’re no Heidi or Giselle’s, but really, who is?

Good lord, women! Did you learn nothing from Heidi Montag? Last I checked, she wants her old face back! I have heard of bridezillas and about girls getting cah-raaaaazy about their weddings, but I think this has taken things a bit (and by a bit I mean quantum leaps) too far. I know every little girl wants to look pretty for her big white wedding, however, getting a whole new appearance just seems sick. Why not just hire a body double?  Life isn’t an episode of Nip/Tuck. Would you go under the knife for your big day?



Why Did You Wear That: All Aboard The Ugly Express. Choo! Choo!

By |February 18th, 2010|Why Did You Wear That?|


Dear Juicy Track Suit Wearer,

2001 called, they’d like their velour leisure suit back.


All of us

Seriously, if I see one more chick in the airport… or just in general… wearing a “track suit” as appropriate casual wear, I’m gonna flip. Like Carrie Underwood I just found out my man’s cheating kind of flip. I understand that we all want to be comfy when traveling (especially since not all of us are flying first class and sometimes get stuck in a middle seat sandwiched between two big’uns). Being comfortable does NOT mean that you need to look like you crawled out of a Pound Puppy factory.  Your warm and fuzzy jumpsuit isn’t giving anyone besides you the “warm and fuzzies.” And besides, do you really want the word “Juicy” written across your ass? Nothing about that sounds flattering.

Exhibits A, B, C, and D:

Catching my drift? Remember when Paris Hilton used to live in these things? Do you want to have anything in common with P. Hil (besides her checking account)? Didn’t think so. So, to avoid any second hand embarrassment on my part, let’s get you into something comfortable AND stylish.

Now is one of those times where leggings (not worn as pants) might come in handy.  Layer some leggings with a long tunic and/or yummy cashmere sweater (it gets chilly on those planes). Put on some flat boots (They don’t have to be flat, mind you, I’m just going for comfort. Bravo to you if you want to wear heels) and you’re good to go. Here’s a visual:


(sans lace gloves, obvi. Chanel bag optional).

A few more options if this is still not clear for you:



She’s even making “jeggings” look cool.



The trick is layering. It gives you versatility and you can take on or off depending on temperature and comfort. This is an extreme example, but you get the point (I hope).

I’m about to make this REALLY easy for you…

Why Did You Wear That: Heidi Ho

By |March 11th, 2009|Celebrity Style, Why Did You Wear That?|

Okay, this one isn’t so much about what she’s wearing… but more about Why Did You Do That To Your Face??

Remember when Heidi Montag was Lauren Conrad’s awesome, supportive bff?  The one who would jump in a cab with her on NYE when she had a fight with her douchey boyfriend?  Well, apparently, she traded in her sweet personality when she traded in her face:


WTF? Who is this girl?  The nose, the boobs, the lips! Nearly unrecognizable.  I will say, she definitely upgraded in the hair department.  Maybe she should slip LC her hairdresser’s card.

Oh… and here’s one for good measure:


I will just ignore Spencer altogether, but what is up with her boots?  Not to mention her hideously matching scarf and bag. Seriously though.  White boots?



WhyDid Wisdom: When NOT to Fake the Funk

By |December 17th, 2008|WhyDid Wisdom|

A psychic from one of the best Online Fortune Teller Sites once told me that I was “okay with the little white lie.” While this might be true, there are a few things in life that you just shouldn’t fib about.

Herve Leger Bandage Dresses- Bebe, Express, and Alice and Olivia have all tried to replicate this trendy dress. None of them have been able to really recreate the drama of the real thing. A real Herve Leger dress hugs you in all of the right places and sucks you in in the others (think of Spanx gone sexy). There are no stray threads, the fabric is heavy and thick, and it only comes in certain styles each season. A black Herve bandage dress is worth the investment. It can be worn for a multitude of occasions. Skip the imitations though. You’ll only end up looking cheap, not chic.

Lips-Ugh! Have you ever seen women walking around with “duck lips”? So gross. There is nothing sexy about looking like Donald Duck’s sister. I understand that voluptuous lips like Angelina Jolie’s and Scarlett Johannsen’s are sexy, but we weren’t all created equal.  Learn to love your lips and invest in a good lip plumper (Lip Infusion is my favorite). Do you really want to walk around looking like Heidi from The Hills? Didn’t think so.
