Why Did You Wear That: All Set To Sweat
Written by: WhyDid | 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.
Written by: WhyDid | 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.

Why Did You Wear That: Hut, Set, Whatever.
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did You Wear That?

superbowl 2014

This Sunday the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks will face off at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.  (full disclosure: I just Googled that to make sure).  Besides being the best thing that’s happened to New Jersey since the Jersey Shore being canceled, this also means that we, ladies, have the opportunity to spend the afternoon in a room with a captive male audience.  Oh, you actually came to watch the game?  I’m actually here for the finger food and legitimate reason for pushing snooze on Monday morning.

My dad often texts me about football games and I attempt to give spirited responses because I know he cares… but sadly, I do not.  I’m not like a football hater and I might care a little more if a team relevant to me was playing (Steelers, Giants), but I kind of don’t care either way.  It’s the same way I feel about tofu.  Meh.  Without question, you will never see me in a bar wearing a football jersey.  Or face paint.  Though, Miley’s got me a little more interested in foam fingers as of late.  I’m probably  not friends with anyone wearing any of the aforementioned sports paraphernalia either, but I’m sure there are some exceptions.  Like an actual football player.  But alas, I do understand the need to show a little team spirt- I was cheerleading captain for heaven’s sake.  Clever little ladies can achieve a sporty chic look by wearing a pop of their team’s color in slouchy sweatshirts, colorful kicks, or mini t-shirts boasting the teams logo.  And denim is always a good look.

 1. Nike Denver Broncos Super Bowl T-Shirt, 2. Nike Dunk Sky Hi Shoes in Armory Navy, 3. Hanky Panky Signature Lace Low Rise Thong in Screaming Orange, 4. Acne Studios Bird Fleece Sweatshirt, 5. Current/Elliot The Stiletto Distressed Skinny Jeans, 6. Seattle Seahawks Navy Antigua NFL Womens Signautre Hoodie, 7. Rag & Bone Capri Cropped Skinny Jeans, 8. Splendid Snowpeak Plaid Button Down Shirt, 9. Deborah Marquit Giardino di Fiori Lace Thong, 10. Vans Authentic Sneaker

But, if you’re anything like me and you could care less about either team and are betting only on running out of salsa before chips, then you may want to just stick to the home (New York) team uniform.  All black everything.  Not only will you still look slim after housing a plate of nachos, you also won’t look like an a-hole wearing the losing team’s color postgame– which really makes you the winner, now doesn’t it?

Gift Guide: My Kinda Girl
Written by: WhyDid | 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).

Why Did You Wear That: Hip (Hop) to the Game

kirsten smithI’ve always felt a connection to street style, but I’ve certainly come a long way from khaki pants and Tommy Hilfiger polo shirts.  Though the style of 90′s hip hop and R&B  stars has made a comeback, this time around it’s a bit more modern and just as luxurious as its original incarnation.  The pants are more fitted (for both men and women) and there’s a bit more polish than there is posh.  Rap stars are taking styling cues from Vogue more than Vibe and many have become covergirls and trendsetters for all genres of music and social scenes.  Not only are they making hits on the airwaves, many have taken to the runways.  Never has fashion and music been so intertwined.
