Setting the Mood: Make It Rain
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

rain fashion editorialWithout a doubt New Yorkers are some of the most intelligent and interesting people on the entire planet and yet all we can seem to talk about is the weather.  Like yesterday for instance, what the hell was that?  Thunder and flurries?  Perhaps we harp on it because it is one thing all of us share no matter our occupations or backgrounds or it could be the fact that all weather, whether heatwaves, snowstorms, or torrential downpours seem to be more extreme when experienced in the city.  In any case, today is the last day before April and though the icy temperatures have started to break (kind of) we always seem to forget that we are now set for another month of miserable grey skies and sloppy street puddles before real spring sets in.  So, brace yourselves and get weather ready with some storm essentials.  This is not a test.

Why Did You Wear That: Sorry, Karl.
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did You Wear That?

designer sweatshirtIf you’ve tired of cashmere turtlenecks and grandpa cardigans, there’s some new knitwear in town.  Well, not really “new” because I’ve suggested it once before this past fall, but it’s the sweatshirt.  The last time we visited sweatshirts, I feared for poor Karl’s health, but hopefully he’s recovered from his panic attack by now… because it would appear that sweatshirts have not only grown in popularity, but have been adopted by just about every designer on the market.  An article of clothing once relegated to the gym, males, and lazy Sundays at home, the new sweatshirt is far beyond a marled grey crewneck. Whether in printed neoprene or with heavy embellishments of sequins and chiffon, this season’s sweatshirts might even sway Mr. Lagerfeld.

Just remember not to pair one with its counterpart, the sweatpant, because that means you’ve given up- and you’re not a quitter.

Why Did You Wear That: Fake It Til You Make It
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did You Wear That?

fur editorialFall is all about leather and fur (and a little bit of lace) and there are more than a few ways to achieve this luxe look.  But should you prefer to go faux, there are plenty of options out there that won’t leave you looking like a muppet.  Many designers have decided not to even dabble in the realm of authentic animal skins, most notably Stella McCartney.  Faux options have come a long way since the inception of pleather and plasticky fake furs and at times are almost indiscernible.  Faux and vegan furs and leathers are not only animal friendly, but much more cost efficient than their counterparts-  twice the incentive to fake the funk.

This is one instance when it’s fine with me to fake it.

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.
