Friday Frocks: Get Down with Gatsby
Written by: WhyDid | Friday Frocks

Fact: you will be invited to a Gatsby themed party this summer.  So, you better be ready to dress the part.  Turns out Ricky’s doesn’t carry costumes in a bag all year round.  The horror!    How will you achieve the look without being completely in costume?  Channel your Daisy with dropped waists, sequins, feathers and flapper-esque details in dresses like the ones below.

1. Marchesa Tiered Tassel Cocktail Dress, 2. Milly Lisette Polka Dot Tulle Dress, 3. Haute Hippie Beaded Roses Dolman Mini Dress, 4. Rag & Bone Violette Tiered Dress, 5. Notte by Marchesa Sequin and Feather Embellished Dress, 6. Parker Hayden Dress, 7. Milly Chevron Tulle Dress, 8. Bless’d Are the Meek The Light Peplum Dress, 9. By Malene Birger Wasuinia Feather and Sequin Dress, 10. Candela Dixie Dress

Go ‘head, girl, go ‘head get down.

Setting the Mood: Don’t be a Tragedy
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

The Great Gatsby is considered one of the best literary works of the 20th century.  (If you haven’t read it, you really should– don’t wait for the movie remake with Leo– that’s cheating).  It’s also often cited as inspiration for parties, weddings, even runway collections.  While there is no denying the glamour that was the roaring 20′s, it seems that perhaps we’ve forgotten what a tragic story The Great Gatsby really is.  Sure Gatsby threw one heck of a party, but let’s remember (SPOILER ALERT) that this romanticized tale ends in multiple deaths and a suicide.  So, next time you’re looking to throw a theme party full of old world glitz, perhaps you should just notate the attire as “Roaring 20′s” rather than “Gatsby.”  The clothes were fabulous.  The plotline?  Tragic.

Would You Wednesday: Picture Phone Peekaboo
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did or Why Don't?

As many of you have probably read, another young starlet has a “nude photo scandal.”  The lovely Blake Lively of Gossip Girl fame allegedly has some leaked naughty nude photos running rampant via the web.  Her reps were quick to deny they were Blake (shocker), but the resemblance is uncanny.

A couple of things: 1. If I was Blake, I’d claim that body.  Don’t care whose it is- Yowza! 2. If this is not, in fact, Blake, I trust that the fine folks over at Victoria’s Secret/Sports Illustrated, are on the hunt for the young lady who this bodacious bod belongs to.

Okay, so back to the real topic at hand.  When the hell are girls (especially those of the celebrity species) going to learn?  If you take naked pics and send them to your beau du jour, at some point in time an unintended audience will probably be fortunate enough to enjoy your nekkid body.  Now, (Dad- earmuffs), I have sent some racy photos to a significant other before… And while I do wish this fella was no longer in possession of said sexy photos, they weren’t something I’m morbidly ashamed of.  That said- I would NOT want the entire world to see them.  I take care of my body and would like to keep its splendor strictly reserved for my future hubs and my best gal pals (not modest, kids).  If I wanted the entire planet to see all my nooks and crannies, I’d just do a spread in Playboy.  At least I’d get paid…

So what do you think? Yay or nay to nudie photos?
