Why Did You Wear That: Cover Your Bases
Written by: admin | Why Did You Wear That?

national underwear day peep showThere are times in life when one must practice a bit of discretion- like the times where my friends have to remind me that what I classify as “shirts” aren’t in reality and in “polite society” considered shirts.  They’re more like long line bralettes.  And honestly, if my bust wasn’t as robust, I might actually be able to get away with a bit more skin.  But alas, that is not the case, so I’ve had to take a quick course in Modesty 101.  This past weekend when I was informed that I would be attending a cocktail party with one of my best gal pals, her boo, and a guy I’d formerly hidden from, I packed one of my favorite T by Alexander Wang backless dresses and heels that I get stopped on the street about.  “Backless” more often than not is synonymous with “bra-less.”  As to not offend my friend, I also stashed one of my secret weapons that I acquired as a lingerie buyer, silicone nipple covers.  Sure, they aren’t exactly sexy (ever wanna look like a department store mannequin?), but they prevent corneal damage and idle cocktail party gossip.  That reminded me of all the little tricks of the trade that I was privy to and wanted to share with my fellow crop top loving cohorts.  Collect these Macgyver approved undergarments below and never let your nipples be the only lasting impression at the party… because it’s just not that kind of party.

Why Did You Wear That: Pajama Jam
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did You Wear That?

pajamas kirsten smithThough I rarely sleep with much on once the weather breaks from freezing, I have an overabundance of sleepwear.  As a matter of fact, for someone who would rather sleep with her window open for fresh air and sweat than turn on her air conditioner, it seems a bit excessive for the lack of closet and drawer space of New York studio apartments.  Despite living in what is essentially a large hotel room, my apartment has become a bit of a hangout, probably due to its convenient location to trouble.  Upon entry everyone always comments on the number of rompers and nighties that hang from the doorknobs of my closet… which aren’t there merely for show, but because I’ve got a bit of a textile overpopulation problem. It just so happens that they look nice and add a little bit of color and femininity to my black and white abode.  My pajamas are mostly seen by my girlfriends who catch me between showering and dressing for the day, delivery men, and my neighbors across the street who have seen more than their fair share of me.  But alas, with summer weekend getaways and shared spaces, it’s probably best to have something to sleep in more modest than your birthday suit and slightly sweeter than your old ratty college t-shirt and pair of boxers that came from who knows where.

Friday Frocks (Except Not): One for the Money
Written by: WhyDid | Friday Frocks

Speaking of one pieces… this week let’s ditch the frocks for something less formal.  While a onesie can still be dressed up for a night out on the town, sometimes a gal needs a little coverage of the crotchal region.  Maybe you’ll be tackling the new Citi Bikes, or perhaps there are high kicks in your future, in any case, a little bit of modesty goes a long way.  What better way than in a jumpsuit or romper?  (Answer: there is no better way).

Setting the Mood: Getaway From Me
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

Memorial Day is fast approaching… so fast, in fact, that I didn’t even realize it was this weekend.  Guess who doesn’t have plans (yet)?  Who wants to pack me in his/her carry-on?  Anyone?

Well, for the rest of you well-organized individuals it’s time to start packing up and shipping out.  So, should you be heading to Malibu or Miami, your look needs to be beach chic, which basically amounts to looking polished without looking like you tried… not one bit.

Friday Frocks: Frock Optional
Written by: admin | Friday Frocks

baby rompersThis shouldn’t be news to you, but I love rompers.  If there’s a romper on the rack, most likely it’s going to end up in my closet.  Sure they’re really annoying when you have to use the ladies’ room and not the best choice when going in for a Brazilian, but they are one step dressing (Why do you think babies like them so much?).  Which leads me to my point… Frocks have been getting all the attention.  Rompers are all like, “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia.”  Well, fact is, rompers are my Marcia.  And this week, they will be yours as well.
