Why Did or Why Don’t: Flat Footed

tevas

Which came first: the Birkenstock of the Teva?  The answer doesn’t actually matter because they are both having fashion reincarnations this spring… much to the joy of some and chagrin of others.  While the Birkenstock reemergence has already been happening on the low for quite some time now, the other favored sandal of the 90′s complete with velcro straps and thick flat soles has just recently filled high end department stores’ and designer boutiques’ shelves.  Brands from Marni to Rebecca Minkoff have embraced and reinvented the functional over fashionable shoe with metallic leather, studs, and colorful embellishments.  While they sure will make traipsing through the city a lot less painful for your feet, I’m not sure about the effect they’ll have on our eyes.

Why Did You Wear That: Fresh Coat
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did You Wear That?

coatsThe only item more clutch to one’s closet than the perfect fall boots is the perfect fall coat.  Growing up in Florida, I was unfamiliar with inclement winter weather.  Boy, was I in for a rude awakening during my first northeastern snow storm.  This was when I took a crash course in dressing for the elements.  Never again would I be chilled to the bone without the appropriate outerwear.  Someone wise once told me that if you have a nice coat, nice bag, and nice shoes during the winter, it doesn’t really matter whether you’re wearing sweats underneath– no one will even see them.  I’m not encouraging that, but I certainly wouldn’t shame you for running to Starbucks in your jammies so long as you cover them accordingly.  While you should have one go to coat to cover all occasions, you’re going to need a couple more to fill in the wardrobe gaps.  Below are some essential styles that will keep you warm and looking cool.

fall coats

 

  1. The trench: Rachel Zoe London Belted Trench, Burberry Brit Short Leather Trimmed Cotton Twill Trench Coat, Club Monaco Isabella Trench
  2. The leather jacket: T by Alexander Wang Reversible Leather and Nylon Bomber Jacket, Mackage Veruca Leather Jacket, Club Monaco Lee Moto Jacket
  3. The cape: Max Studio Single Breasted Cape, DSQUARED2 Wool Cape, Anthropologie Chevron Sweet Poncho
  4. The varsity jacket: Lulu & Co Wool Blend and Leather Varsity Jacket, Club Monaco Gabi Varsity Jacket, Current/Elliot The Varsity Jacket
  5. The camel coat: Club Monaco Ashley Quilted Sleeve Coat, 3.1 Phillip Lim Split Sides Pea Coat, Joseph Man Wool and Cashmere Coat
  6. The statement coat: camilla and marc Silentium Wool Coat, BB Dakota Hazel Leopard Coat, alice + olivia Rhonda High Neck Coat
  7. The weekend jacket: Canada Goose Trillium Parka, Tibi Scuba and Padded Twill Coat, Vince Fur Trimmed Hooded Anorak
  8. The classic coat: GAP Moto Coat, Dawn Levy Harper Leather Trim Wool Wrap Coat, French Connection Leather Trim Asymmetrical Coat

Don’t be left out in the cold.

Girl Crush: Go-Go-Gomez
Written by: WhyDid | Celebrity Style

selena gomez fashionOnce a wizard of Waverly Place, Selena Gomez has ditched her Disney darling act as most recently showcased in the raunchy film, Spring Breakers.  Sure she caught a temporary case of Bieber fever, but it seems Ms. Gomez is growing up and moving on.  It’s alright, girl.  We’ve all made mistakes.  If we looked back at at my boyfriend at twenty, I’d be a little red faced too.  Along with her dating and career choices, her style is also evolving and with her glossy locks, long legs, and girl next door (in your dreams) looks, she’s setting herself up to be a real red carpet darling.  Not one to shy away from a bikini or midriff baring top (clearly, she spent two hours on the big screen in not much else), Gomez has captured the perfect mix between young woman and youthful age appropriateness- unlike some of her tween trainwreck graduates.  To get Gomez’s enviable style, grab some key pieces below and start doing some sit ups, like right now.

1. Vince Leather Hi Lo Tee, 2. Jimmy Choo Anouk Patent Leather Shoes, 3. bumble and bumble Shine On Finishing Spray, 4. Smith’s Rosebud Salve, 5. Olay Complete Defense Daily UV Moisturizer SPF 30, 6. Kimchi Blue Pinup Bustie Top, 7. Vix Angola Bikini Top and Bottom, 8.Dolce & Gabbana Mock Tortoise Gold Tone Cat Eye Sunglasses, 9. Blank Denim Distressed Skinny Jeans, 10. Jules Smith Infinity Hoops, 11. Billabong Invert Camo T-Shirt, 12. Forever 21 Mock Pocket Mini Skirt, 13. Supra Vaider Sneakers

 Oh- and I’m not ashamed to admit her new single is on repeat:

Would You Wednesday: Barely There Britches
Written by: WhyDid | Why Did or Why Don't?

celebrity sheer chiffon pantsFirst it was the see through skirt.  Now it would appear that the sheer madness has spread right on over to pants.  Celebrities have been seen sporting the look from the red carpet to the courtroom.  I’m undecided on the idea as I can see it coming off as quite airy and fun for summer and a great alternative to the maxi skirt, but seeing Lindsay Lohan and Ke$ha trying out the trend makes me want to call the whole thing off.

1. Helmut Lang Mandala Print Pants, 2. L*Space Coachella Pants, 3. Forever21 Leopard Print Chiffon Pants, 4. Emilio Pucci Paneled Wide Leg Pants,, 5. Vince Sheer Slim Pants, 6. Stella McCartney Embroidered Organza Pants, 7. Enzo Costa Chiffon Zip Pants, 8. Wes Gordon Ghost Pants

Friday Frocks: Wine and Dine
Written by: WhyDid | Friday Frocks

wine and dineSeeing as weekends in the fall are meant for meeting a man to keep you warm all winter, you’re going to need a fresh frock to welcome in the “cuffing” season.  Sure, we all have the classic LBD, but what about something a little warmer?  Something in this season’s most coveted color, perhaps?  That’s right, I’m talking about switching your shade like you’re switching from rose to pinot noir.  The great thing about fall’s oxblood/burgundy/whatever you’ve decided to call it color is that it’s so very flattering on skin tones from porcelain to caramel to mocha- just like this particular Helmut Lang frock I’ve been lusting after every single time I pass the Intermix on my corner.  So, embrace it ladies, these wine hued frocks are sure to get you wined, dined, and warm all winter.
