Setting the Mood: Any Man of Mine
Written by: admin | Setting the Mood

mens fall fashion editorialOn a “date” (and let’s use that term very loosely in this instance) that ended in a sex shop on Sixth Avenue last night, my suitor turned to me over bisteca per due at Morandi and asked, “What’s your type?”  My initial response would have been, “Not you,” but I figured that wouldn’t exactly be conducive to getting through the rest of our meal without utensil related injury.  My actual answer was that I don’t have a type and that’s not a farce.  When I look back on all of my relationships- long term and very short lived- I’m basically an equal opportunity dater.  From Wall Street bankers to musicians, athletes, writers, and tech nerds, I’ve basically run the gamut when it comes to careers and as far as appearances go they’ve been tall, short, dark, light, and everything in between.  Of course there has to be an initial attraction whether it be physical or mental, but the reason my heart melted for each one of them comes from an intangible place.  Even the worst of them (and that’s a tight race) had his wondrous moments and I hold a special place for each of them in my little black heart.  That’s why this week, we are dedicating WhyDid to the men in our lives and all that comes along with them. So, ladies, let’s hear it for the boys.

Setting the Mood: Under Covers
Written by: admin | Setting the Mood

lingerie fashion editorial I may be appalled at the thought of wearing pearls and Tory Burch ballet flats give me the creeps, but no one who knows me intimately would argue that I’m anything but feminine.  I may have matured from favoring hot pink hues for home and wardrobe, but I will never tire of delicate lace, soft satin, and intricate details that make being a woman worth all of the cramps, bloating, skewed salaries, and cat calls.  When I spent several years in the high end world of lingerie, I acquired new found admiration for all that goes into underpinnings.  Perhaps there will only be a few special someones who are ever fortunate enough to see the contents of your knicker drawer (unless you use your delicates as decor), but the most feminine thing I think a woman can do is dress for herself.

Setting the Mood: Hats Off
Written by: admin | Setting the Mood

hat fashion editorialMy mom looks fantastic in a hat.  Any kind.  You name it- from bonnet to bucket- she works the look.  She probably should have been British or born in the mid 18th century.  Fortunately for me, I inherited that trait along with her side stitch inducing humor (am I right?).  In this sizzling summer heat, you may not intuitively reach for a hat, but they are one more step in the right direction towards sun damage defense (more on that here).  In addition to shielding you from the sun’s UV rays, they also prove to be a fantastic way to hide a bad hair day (as witnessed here).eugenia kim fedora sensi studio(from top down): Rag & Bone Leather Trimmed Wool Felt Fedora, Karl Lagerfeld Number 7 Baseball Cap, Sensi Studio Adrian Toquilla Straw Panama Hat,Eugenia Kim Max Feather Trimmed Rabbit Felt Fedora

Setting the Mood: Get It, Sporty.
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

workout fashionThe other day I received a message asking how to get abs like mine.  I’m not sure if she was expecting some magical answer like, “I house a bag of Cool Ranch Doritos dipped in Cool Whip before bed every night,” but she seemed a bit bummed out when I answered instead, “Pilates, yoga, and running.”  This is not another installment of “You Did Not Eat That.”  I actually do spend time sweating and while I did partake in National Ice Cream Day on Sunday, I am cognizant of what I put into my body on a regular basis.  I don’t do it because I want to be thin, though that is a welcome side effect, I do it because I actually feel better when I’m not bombarding my intestines with ingredients I can’t pronounce… except for the occasional glass of wine from some far corner of the Earth that I just point to on the menu and smile.  Sure, when I was in college I could sit down in front of the TV with a raging hangover and feed my frame an entire pizza without seeing the effects.  But seeing as I’m no longer wielding a fake ID from Tennessee, my metabolism has given me the middle finger and shopping is most certainly not my cardio.

Setting the Mood: Who Wears the Pants?
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

palazzo pants patternHigh summer is probably not the time you think most of waking up, stretching those lanky limbs, and slipping into a pair of slacks.  Much to many of my friends’ chagrin, my main motive when choosing my daily attire is to cover as little as possible with the thinnest layer of fabric conceivable all without contracting a ticket for public indecency.  The caveat in all of this is my phobia of making bodily contact with many of the publicly shared spaces, ie., rash inducing velour seats of the Jitney descent or the unidentifiable, indestructible material of taxi cab cushions. Therefore, in the fear of revisiting a middle school incident of ring worm, there are times when covering up my gams is an absolute must.  Fortunately, this summer, there are plenty of pants that don’t fall under the suffocating category of denim.  Breezy wide leg pants in plenty of patterns are perfect for pairing with croptops and keeping the Center of Disease Control slightly less busy.  And really, what’s the purpose of a pants of dance of if you’ve got no pants to lose?
