Why Did You Wear That: Stay Fly
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did You Wear That?

flying paper airplaneThe worst part about traveling to me is the process (followed in close second by packing).  Getting through the airport is a simple form of hell.  Having to stand barefoot in security is bad enough, but the mere thought of my skin touching the seat freaks me out (FYI- I have the same problem with movie theaters).  The short answer to this problem would be to layer on as much protective layers as possible, but in case you missed the memo, it’s hot out.  So what does one wear when it’s 95 degrees and about 1000% humidity?  Here’s a hint:  It’s absolutely NOT a Juicy tracksuit.

airport attire1. Forever 21 Metallic Trapeze Tank, $15.80, 2. Urban Renewal Gauze Bell Bottom Pant, $39.00, 3. Sam Edelman Gigi T Strap Sandals, $70, 4. alice + olivia Phoebe Mid Length Slim Dress, $176, 5. Cooperative Applique Ballet Flat, $34, 6. KAIN Label Pocket Tank, $80, 7. Forever 21 Sheer Abstract Maxi Skirt, $13.50, 8. Ecote Soleil Thong Sandal, $29, 9. Gucci Round Frame Metal Sunglasses, $325, 10. Dorothy Perkins Black Flyaway Cardigan, $29, 11.  See by Chloe Ambre Big Tote, $550

Please remember that you can be comfortable without  wearing printed pajama pants to the airport.  Pull yourself together, sister… you never who might be in the next seat.

Stay fly.

Why Did You Wear That: There’s a Time and a Place
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did You Wear That?

While strolling the aisles of Target picking up the essentials (toilet paper, bottled water, more SATC DVD’s, tampons, etc.), we stumbled upon this:

I mean, really? It was 7pm on a Wednesday evening. WHERE are you going?

photoWHAT are you shopping for?

photo_2Why? Why? WHY?

Listen, I appreciate a gal who puts pride into her appearance, but this? Just too much. There certainly is a time and place for everything. I am not, by ANY means, suggesting that homegirl should be strutting through Target with a Juicy tracksuit and Uggs (heaven forbid), but there is such a thing as overkill. Regardless of the fact that her outfit looks like a leftover from the Clueless wardrobe closet, she is totally overdressed for running errands. And no, I don’t believe she is going somewhere super fun afterwards and just had to pop into Target on the way.

Always keep in mind the place you are going and what is appropriate attire. No one wants to be the only one who jumps in the pool at a party.

All I know is that I hope she got the stock boy’s digits at least.

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

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.

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:

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…
