Setting the Mood: How Very American
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

denim day fashion editorialThere is nothing more American other than maybe our flag, apple pie, or childhood obesity than denim.  A long time fashion staple that started off as casual and has since gone couture, every man, woman, child, and sometimes dog has and should own a pair of well fitted jeans.  Beyond being a closet staple, April 23, 2014 marks this year’s Denim Day (so be sure to slip into your favorite pair to show your support).  I had never actually heard of this event until this year, but I most certainly will be taking part- because standing up for what you believe is also very American.  So, with that said, this week will be dedicated strictly to denim.

Setting the Mood: The Softer Side of Spring
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

pastelThis Sunday, the Easter Bunny will come to town and bestow upon us lots of calories we probably never needed, but will enjoy every moment intaking them.  With him comes Easter bonnets and pretty pastels which also happen to be one of this spring’s biggest trends.  So, whether you celebrate Easter or Passover… or you’re just in it for the Cadbury eggs, pastel is a perfect way to usher in this very stubborn spring.

Setting the Mood: Make It Rain
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

rain fashion editorialWithout a doubt New Yorkers are some of the most intelligent and interesting people on the entire planet and yet all we can seem to talk about is the weather.  Like yesterday for instance, what the hell was that?  Thunder and flurries?  Perhaps we harp on it because it is one thing all of us share no matter our occupations or backgrounds or it could be the fact that all weather, whether heatwaves, snowstorms, or torrential downpours seem to be more extreme when experienced in the city.  In any case, today is the last day before April and though the icy temperatures have started to break (kind of) we always seem to forget that we are now set for another month of miserable grey skies and sloppy street puddles before real spring sets in.  So, brace yourselves and get weather ready with some storm essentials.  This is not a test.

Setting the Mood: Dirty Pop
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

pop art editorialAs mentioned, one of spring’s trends is that of wearable art.  While New York is full of museums stocked to the gills with great works of art and fledgling artists fill downtown galleries with their first pieces of genius, not all of us can afford to cover our tiny apartments’ walls with masterpieces other than our own.  And a step above Ikea prints are those replicas of the greats… hence the Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol prints on my own walls.  Another way to get your culture on is to wear it with some of spring’s poppiest pieces.

Setting the Mood: … And Break.
Written by: WhyDid | Setting the Mood

spring break fashionYour definition of “spring break” doesn’t necessarily need to include a wet t-shirt contest and well tequila shot from a super soaker into your already inebriated mouth.  Sometimes the best kind of spring breaks are those spent with close friends in low key locations.  Sure, during my years as a co-ed I visited the obvious and oh so exotic locales of Aculpulco, Cancun, and Panama City, but never did I appear in a Girls Gone Wild DVD, nor did I awake in nothing but plastic beads.  I did, however, misplace my purse and nearly face a lifetime spent in Mexico without government ID.  But alas, UPS delivers to all of Northern America and I was returned home safely to two less than impressed parental units.  While my behavior south of the border was less than stellar, let’s just remember that I was far from bikini clad, AK47 holding, Riff Raff groupie, so I call that a “win.”  And why should we ditch the tradition once we’ve earned our undergraduate degrees?  Maybe, much like naps, spring break is a tradition that should span on throughout all of adulthood.
