Why Did You Wear That: All Set To Sweat

By |February 4th, 2014|Why Did You Wear That?|

fashion-workout-clothesOn winter days when you wake up to the sound of salt trucks clanging down the street, it’s pretty easy to lose any and all motivation to get thyself to a gym, even if it is in your building- like one floor down.  It all starts innocently enough, skipping a day here and there and then before you know it, you’re making death threats to your laundry service for “shrinking” every single pair of your designer denim jeans.  Your scale also seems to be going haywire because your floor is clearly uneven.  Write yourself a Post-It to call the super.  You did not gain ten pounds of winter weight existing on Seamless orders alone.  And then you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror on the way out of the bathroom post shower…

Normally, I’d be pretty pissed at Punxsutawney Phil for sentencing us with another six weeks of winter, but let’s look at the upside.  Now, you have six more weeks to shed those polar vortex pounds.  I suggest posting a picture of a Victoria’s Secret Angel to your refrigerator, following a fitness inspiration account on Instagram, and cease and desist wearing pants with elastic waistbands… unless you’re heading to the gym/Pilates/cycling/yoga.  Other than an awesome playlist, having cute and flattering workout gear is a great way to make sweating seem a bit less sticky… and stinky.

Setting the Mood: Sweat This.

By |February 3rd, 2014|Setting the Mood|

gym fashion editorialThey say summer bodies are made in the winter.  I can’t help but agree as I sweat myself silly at the gym.  There’s nothing more annoying to us gym rats than the people who show up in mid-May in sheer panic knowing that Memorial Day is right around the corner and they will be forced to slip into something more skimpy.  They’re kind of like the people who show up to the gym on January 2nd and last about a month.  I’m actually willing to wager they might be the same crowd.  You know the hardest part about going to the gym?  Actually going.  The second hardest part is figuring out how to look good without being the girl who looks like she got “ready” to go to the gym and walks on a treadmill texting with a full face of makeup and a fresh blowout (please don’t be that girl).  While I usually attempt to look totally unapproachable because there’s nothing I hate more than being hit on mid stride, it is entirely possible to look totally stylish while you sweat.

Gift Guide: My Kinda Girl

By |December 11th, 2013|Gift Guide|

paper dollTraditionally, I’ve divided up my gift guides by price point, but I decided to shake things up this year by organizing by personality.  Now, there is no way on Earth anyone could possibly classify all women into five categories- unless that person was looking to face several million pissed off estrogen fueled females.  However, I’ve chosen five pretty broad categories that should be fairly helpful when shopping for your friends, sisters, mothers, and significant others.  Whether she loves all things shiny or her fingers can’t be pried from her smartphone, there’s something here for just about any woman.  And since I’ve taken all of the grunt work out of your holiday shopping (you’re welcome), all you’ve got to do is figure out what kind of gal you’re shopping for.  (If you can’t do that, I can’t be held accountable- but a helpful hint?  We’ve all probably got a little bit of each one inside of us).
