Why Did You Wear That: Fake It Til You Make It
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did You Wear That?

michael kors runwayTwo of this fall’s hottest trends are fur and leather.  Just about any store you walk into or any online shop you peruse will have a plethora of fuzzy and sleek options for your winter wardrobe.  And as chic as some of these styles may be, perhaps you are completely appalled by the thought of wearing the skin of another to  advance your fashion forward image.  Have no fear, you can still be very much on trend while ensuring that all of God’s creatures keep their coats.

Fortunately, many designers and brands are well aware of the reluctance of consumers to purchase pelts and have come up with some equally stylish faux and vegan options.  (Bonus- these faux options also happen to be a whole heck of a lot cheaper).  So, in honor of Joanna Krupa (who is fast becoming a fan favorite for all the Housewives), here are ten fantastically faux fall fashions:

Friday Frocks: Tee Time

tee shirtsFridays are meant to be casual… as are the weekends.  And while we may strap ourselves into the tightest tops, shortest skirts, and highest heels for a night out, I, for one, can not wait to get home and get out of my constricting couture and slip into something much more comfortable.  Enter the t-shirt dress.  Remember those sleep shirts you wore as a kid?  Might have been your dad’s or just an oversized tee with your favorite band (NKOTB).  Now, you can take your favorite slouchy tee to the streets by sporting this casual yet chic style.

Why Did You Wear That: See Ya Later, 2008!
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did You Wear That?

So, it is now December. I can hardly believe it. This year has flown by!

Anyway, this means that you are starting (or if you’re an overachiever, have already started/finished) planning for your New Year’s Eve soiree. Obviously, my favorite part of any holiday, or party, or basically any occassion to dress up, is getting totally decked out. So whether you’ll be in NYC, South Beach, or jet-setting off to St. Bart’s, I’ve come up with some festive dress ideas for your very special evening. Careful with the champagne…

NEW YORK CITY

Oh, New York. I have spent a few New Year’s here, myself.  While New Yorkers tend to be elegantly understated, it is still fun to sparkle and stand out. (Trust me, I was once the only one in the room in a cocktail dress, loved it). Go with a little bit of subtle glam and comfortable (but still cute) shoes because after all, this is the city that never sleeps!

Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent, $324. Available at www.shopbop.com
