Why Did You Wear That: Body Party
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did You Wear That?

celebrity body jewelryWe’ve covered the bikini, the coverup and we already know how I feel about poolside footwear. Another not so obvious sunbathing accessory… that could potentially lead to some awkward tan lines, but you’re wearing enough SPF as to avoid that… is body jewelry. Specifically body chains. I have a couple of necklaces I next to never take off, but catapulting bling to the next level is the body chain worn with your bikini bod. It’s not as if you’re going to be doing laps like an Olympic swimmer and I’m willing to bet that if you’re anything like me, the only time you’ll subject your skin to a chlorinated public pool is when your dermis has actually reached the temperature right before incineration. Should you not be bold enough to bare your belly, another iteration is the hand chain which is another celebrity favorite at this very moment… and don’t you wanna be just like Beyonce?

Why Did or Why Don’t: Cuffing Season
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did or Why Don't?

celebrit ear cuffsI wasn’t even allowed to get my ears pierced until I was ten (double digits, ya’ll) and I had to get them done by our family doctor.  No joke.  As you can probably guess a second hole or the oh so trendy upper ear piercing was completely out of the question- although my mom did take me to get my belly button pierced by a guy wearing a t-shirt with a picture of a squirrel endowed with overgrown nuts on it.  When I was 18 or maybe 19, my best guy friend and I went and got our upper ears pierced.  As I typed that, I realized how absolutely ridiculous it sounds.  He’s married with a child now and I have the grown over scar of that stunt leftover.

So when celebrities started stepping out with extravagant ear wear (side note: ears are gnarly looking when not in context with the human head.  Ahem, Van Gogh), I wondered if we were going to start stacking our ears up with bling like we’ve done with our wrists and now fingers.  I mean, I guess it’s a good way to add sparkle without adding extra holes.  But is this trend destined to go the route of its distant cousin, the arm cuff?  You remember, that time we all thought it would be a great idea to cut off circulation to our biceps and in turn accentuate any and all upper arm flab.

Weekend Playlist: 2013, We Out.
Written by: WhyDid | Weekend Playlist

miley cyrus destinys child nsync2013 was a very interesting (by interesting I mean coma inducing) year when it came to music in my humble opinion.  I am not, nor have I ever claimed to be a music expert, but if even I was bored, I can only imagine how audio afficianados must have felt.  All genres started to blend together just as the days of the week started to blend together for me.  Is it Tuesday night or Saturday morning?  Who cares?  A little Drake whining about his leftover Chinese food followed up with some Miley Cyrus soft porn will alleviate any confusion.  Just stick out your tongue, grab a leotard, and start twerking- you’ve got 2013 music covered.  It’s like Now That’s What I Call Music: 9 Billion.  Listen to this playlist til 2014, then let’s bury these songs like a time capsule not to be revisited until another decade has passed.

Werk, bitch.

Why Did You Wear That: Trapped in the Closet, or At Least I Wish I Was…

american-music-awards-red-carpetMayra Veronica, Marc Anthony, Keltie McKnight, R. Kelly

Award shows always manage to leave me scratching my head and trying to figure out just how much wine I ingested in the last two hours.  It’s as if celebrities save up all their crazy for these star studded events and then unleash it on their adoring fans.  Fortunately for us, it’s all caught on film to be watched time and again for days to follow.  These evenings provide news sources plenty of ammunition and the platform to play things out and beat a dead horse.

Speaking of which… The only thing weirder than Lady Gaga’s arrival on a wind up horse, was her awkward performance with president R. Kelly who probably should have stayed trapped in the closet.  I didn’t have too long to wonder what the real purpose of this horse was or whether Ke$ha and Gaga are actually morphing into the same person, because moments later I thought I spotted a red carpet crasher, but it was just Marc Anthony who looked as though he’d been halfway through his Sunday stack at The Griddle when he realized, “Shit, that award show is tonight.”  His former better half, Jennifer Lopez, more than made up for his failworthy flannel with a high energy tribute to Celia Cruz.  It wasn’t all cringeworthy though.  Watching Rihanna accept the Icon Award from her mother even made me tear up and Christina Aguilera’s soft vocals during her performance with A Great Big World had me fall in love with her all over again.  Just when I started to think that maybe this award show was bringing back a little bit of class to the music world, Miley showed up in a cat covered two piece leotard and I had a hard time deciding which cat to look at because the one lip synching behind her kind of stole the show.

But alas, what we (at least I) bother watching award shows for… the fashion.  If you weren’t wearing white, you were wearing black- or a combo of the two.  This, of course, makes me happy because my second favorite “color” behind black is white.  If you weren’t wearing one of my two favorite shades, you were wearing metallics or heating things up in fiery reds and oranges.  To be clear, just because I post it below doesn’t mean I like it.  It just means it happened and I firmly believe in being informed.  Rihanna, Nicole Richie, Ciara, and a very Kardashian-esque Naya Rivera were a few of my favorites, while most of the others left plenty of room for improvement.

Beauty Buzz: It’s Just Temporary
Written by: WhyDid | Beauty Buzz

I’d wondered before about your feelings on getting tatted up, and it’s still one of my most searched posts.  The other day, I was sitting and chatting with one of my best gals, Cat, and we noticed that all of the young starlets and songstresses were using ink as their best accessories.  And I can’t lie, I think a lot of them look really cool, but having one tattoo of my own that’s not visible to the general public (sorry, Dad- cat’s outta the bag), I can imagine regretting a more substantial stain of the skin.  Call me a commitmentphobe.

The thought of having to explain to little Tommy why his mom has an explicit phrase emblazoned on her forearm, makes me cringe.  And let’s not even get into that thing called gravity.  A cute little fish on your bum may some day become a whale on the back of your knee caps.  But that hasn’t seemed to slow down the beautiful people from Beverly Hills to the Big Apple.  Hollywood’s biggest stars from the queen of twerk to leading lady of the runway are expressing themselves in a dermal way- one of which is having hers removed due to a type-o.  Whoops.

So, we decided we were going to go ahead and get ourselves some henna fakies.  And then I saw a status update regarding a little something called jagua.  Inquiring minds had to know.  I went ahead and fired up, good ol’ Google.  Wouldn’t you know, I could order an at home kit and create my very own temporary tattoos.  And order I did.  Thanks to Amazon.com, I received my DIY kit within a couple of days and I couldn’t wait to test it out.  One fine fall evening, we headed up to the roof and started to draw all over each other.  We began by testing the pre-made designs, but our creative geniuses (and that liter of wine) got the best of us and we went free hand.  From hashtags to this little reminder I painted on my forearm, we went wild.  Take that, Miley.

While we had taken the time to read the directions (a novel idea for me), we didn’t really take them as seriously as we should have.  Trust me, there’s a reason they include a pair of latex gloves.  Not only did we awake with hangovers, we also had stained fingers and smudged designs.  When the directions said to let it dry, they meant it.  Anything we’d wiped or tried to correct appeared the next day.  A bit of scrubbing and some patience erased our mistakes, but true to promise, the art will stay on for a solid two weeks.  Verdict?  A great way to test out a tat, but be sure to not drink and ink.

xx,

WhyDid
