Weekend Playlist: Party Like It’s 2013

By |December 30th, 2012|Weekend Playlist|

new years eve confettiSo, it’s Sunday… meaning this is technically the last bit of the “weekend,” but let’s be serious.  The stretch between Christmas and New Year’s is like one extended booze fueled, stay in your pajamas til 2pm and mom’s cooking weekend (not that that’s what I’m doing or anything).  Tomorrow is a little something called “New Year’s Eve” and the only thing more important than securing a midnight kiss and not running out of champagne is crafting the most perfect playlist.  The trick to a playlist is covering all your bases.  You don’t want to play what could be listened to on your local Top 40 station, but including a few “club bangers” so that white girls will be heard world round squealing to misogynistic rap lyrics is clutch.  Then you’ve got to toss in a few of those ironic throwbacks for all the “bruhs” to fist bump to when they recognize the intro.  Sprinkle a couple of classics in there to make grandma happy and you, my friend, have the ultimate party playlist.

Cheers, y’all.

Weekend Playlist: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

By |August 20th, 2011|Weekend Playlist|

Every girl loves an official “girls night out” but my very favorite part of these nights is what happens before you even step stillettoed foot out the front door. The best part of a girls night out is primping in the mirror, sipping on cocktails, and possibly a good bit of girl talk. Perhaps I’m showing my age, but I almost enjoy a “girls night in” more than out… Either way, having a perfect playlist to kick off the night is crucial.




Why Did You Wear That: My Future’s So Bright I Gotta Wear Shades

By |February 12th, 2010|Celebrity Style, Why Did You Wear That?|

So, here’s something that I think needs to be discussed. The proper usage of sunglasses.  Last time I checked, they were for protecting your eyes from overexposure of UV rays (and to prevent crow’s feet).  However, it has become abundantly clear that not all of you got that memo.  I want to go ahead and point the finger at you, Hollywood.  You, somehow, gave people (a-hem, celebrities) the impression that sunglasses were like a mimosa.  Okay at any time. Well, have I got news for you. Sunglasses, are, in fact, not okay at any time.  For instance, at night. There is no sun.  So, unless you go ahead and invent something called “moonglasses” with some type of scientific research backing them up, please remove your shades.

This trend also spawned the usage of shades in nightclubs.  Remember those clear-ish shades that “juice heads” started wearing at “da club?”  Gross. I assume this was to either, A) attempt to disguise your quarter sized pupils from all the drugs you were on, B) attempt to disguise your inherent dbaggery. Failure on both. It only drew more attention to you as we pointed and laughed.

Celebs, this goes for you as well. Who do you think you’re fooling with those shades on? I might NOT have noticed you strolling by… until you slapped those ginormous sunnies on. Now I’m wondering who the creep in the sunglasses is.

I was like, “Why are you so obsessed with me?” Well, MC, I’ll tell you why. (Disregarding your pink leather jacket) you’re out at night wearing sunglasses. Let’s go over this again, there’s NO SUN. Cut it out. You think we wouldn’t recognize you without them? Doubtful considering your affinity for pink leather attire.


Oh… RiRi, you look confused. could it be because you are wearing sunglasses in the pitch dark and can’t see four feet in front of you? Thought so.


I mean, I don’t know why I’m even throwing this guy in there. He’s king of all D’s. Of course he’s got his shades on.


Oh Kimmy, I can’t even focus on the fact that you’re wearing sunglasses at night because I’m entranced by the fact that you’re wearing LEGGINGS AS PANTS. YOU of all people should NOT being wearing leggings as pants. I understand that most shirts probably don’t even fit over your rear, but let’s give a try, no?


Um, hey guys? It’s RAINING. Know how I know? You’re holding an UMBRELLA. One of these things does not go with the others. (Btw- is that a fannypack?)

Alright, do I need to make a brief list of sunglass uses? Fine. I’ll go slow. Pay attention, please.

  • Wear sunglasses when it’s sunny.  Novel idea.
  • Do not wear sunglasses at night.
  • Do not wear sunglasses when it’s raining.
  • Just say, “no” to drugs. Even your sunglasses can’t help you here.
  • The bigger and more obnoxious your sunglasses are, the more attention they will draw to you.
  • Just because you can’t see us, doesn’t mean we can’t see you.
  • Clear sunglasses are an oxymoron.
  • There are no such thing as “moonglasses.” I was making a point.
