Setting the Mood: Happy Holla-Daze
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

christmas fashion editorialWhile some of you were busy posing both literally and figuratively at Art Basel in Miami, I was busy dealing with personal crises and preparing this week’s posts chocked full of gift guides that will make your holiday shopping less painful than some of those exhibitions at Basel.  Now that we’ve actually made it past Thanksgiving, it’s time to start thinking December 25th- not post Halloween like some of you overanxious overachievers thought.  It’s no secret that Christmas music is like nails on the chalkboard to me, but I will appease my holly loving, twinkle light enthusiast, overly festive friends.  So, get ready to stuff your stockings, kids.

Setting the Mood: The Days of Our Lives
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

whydid blogThis week’s theme is going to be a little something called evolution.  And, no, not evolution in the Darwinian way because my father would disown me and besides, it’s much more romantic to believe we were specifically created rather than spawned from algae turned angiosperms.  What I’m talking about is the day to day changes that shape, create, and formulate the special little creatures who have become and who we will be.  I couldn’t have imagined what my day would be like one year ago, and I certainly couldn’t imagine what I would be doing right this moment five years ago when I started WhyDid.com (formerly WhyDidYouWearThat.com).  The way I dress today, let alone, the woman I am, is not something I could have predicted, but for better or worse it is exactly who I am- and for that I’m thankful.

Setting the Mood: Life in Plastic
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

In a world full of fakes, who needs any more plastic than what’s already out there?  There are very few things made of plastic that I can honestly endorse: Barbies, credit cards, Legos, and breasts.  Interestingly enough, it would appear that many designers have revisited this once shunned material in the form of accessories and outerwear.  This time around, wearing plastic and PVC look more sophisticated than the run of the mill Missy Elliot music video.  To add sheen to an otherwise casual outfit opt for plastic rather than pearls.

Setting the Mood: Sugar and Spice
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

leather and laceOn more than one occasion I’ve been called a paradox; a walking contradiction.  At first glance you may think you could quickly delegate me to one box, but after a conversation and cocktail, you may be moving me to another.  And just when you think you’ve got me figured out, look out for that curve ball because it’s coming.

I don’t like predictability and following the herd makes me more than uncomfortable.  I think there’s much to be said for mixing things up and keeping people guessing, especially when getting dressed.  This is precisely why leather and lace are the perfect complement to one another.  While lace could be overly feminine or somewhat sexy, leather is tough enough to tip the scales from prissy to powerful.  A head to toe leather look would have you reminiscent of catwoman and all over lace could land you somewhere between a Victorian and 80′s Madonna.  However, when the two are combined, the look is lethal.

Setting the Mood: The Haunting
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

halloween mood board fashionHalloween doesn’t have to be all about shimmying into synthetic fabric and trips to Ricky’s for costumes in a plastic bags.  Rather than looking frightening or freaky, you could spend the night looking fashionable.  An evening that’s meant to be about fantasy, this is your moment to beckon your inner seductress or that glamorous goth.  While there is a (very) fine line between sexy and skanky, selecting streamlined pieces sans tulle, glitter, and excessive sequins will have you riding the high road instead of gallivanting in the gutter.  Accessories with a bit of sparkle will add an extra bit of intrigue to any witchy woman.
