STYLE ADVICE: How to Rock a Bad Romance

After Lady Gaga’s triumphant hit, every Nooner wanted a bad romance. Why wouldn’t we? The scenario demands great sex and great drama, as well as a promise of great love. I remember when my friends and I surrounded our apartment’s kitchen island and started talking about it. Next thing you know, I’m hit with a bad romance and let me tell ya its not what its cracked up to be.  My phone was ringing and ringing like it was Grand Central Station, wait wait that’s another song.  Thankfully I was surrounded by shots and tables to dance on to get out my bad romance excess anger. Need less to say even having a tragic love affair demands sartorial choices.

Let’s take a page from our girl, Carrie Bradshaw. Throughout her thirties she was slammed with an on and off again relationship with Mr. Big.  It was never easy to deal with but thank god Carrie had a long luxe fur coat to put over every outfit. Oh you thought I was going to say thank god she had her three best friends? Well that’s always good too but that coat is what demands attention and lets face it you can feel better about yourself crying in fur rather than your friends poly blend. Now back to Carrie, even if she looked like shit, with that jacket on she held resemblance to Kate Moss every time she lit a cigarette. Lesson, get a fur jacket.  If we had our pick of all the furs in the land, a Nooner prefers a cropped black fur coat in pre and post bad romance times.  With that said, we are still fine with the one our grandma passed down to us.

Once you’re in a bad romance, your lover never goes away.  There like that drink that you swore never to have again because it got you really drunk and left you with a hangover the whole next day. But they’re you ago again, ordering it the following week. Don’t you ever learn?! Damn the day you spotted him in the crowd with his perfectly product enhanced hair.


STYLE ADVICE: Day Off Day Clothes

Don’t we all love a long weekend? Although everyday is a long weekend for us, we love when everyone can enjoy as well.  For some, it’s another day to brunch or another day to read in the park but Nooners have another fantasy for a Monday off. Today is the perfect chance to finally stay in bed for the whole day with your man while the only thing you will be consuming will be champagne and each other. Actions like this don’t involve clothing but every Nooner should have the necessary loungewear.

The cool knit pant for when the champagne runs out and you need to run to the liquor store.  Fashionable to pair with heels like Carrie Bradshaw or slouchy cool with converse.

The nightshirt, so at least you can have something covering yourself when the Chinese food is delivered.

The silk robe is key for seducing or perfect for lounging on the couch with your man. It may even help your effort in trying to convince him that the Housewives of Beverly Hills is actually a good show.

The luxe t- shirt is perfect for snuggle time and also easy transferable to be apart of your everyday wear.

Together all these pieces are perfect for your survival of the four day weekend. The other necessities you can find at your local drug store.

5. The Crown Jewel

Every great woman in the world has had her name or initial hanging from her delicate neck. Such greats as Carrie Bradshaw with her gold platted “Carrie” and Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl with her diamond “B”(no I am not kidding when I call them great). Why you may ask? Because they’re the shit and they want the whole world to know, that is if you couldn’t already tell by their wardrobe.

If there is one piece of jewelry to grab with your metro card before running out, it’s the “crown jewel”.  No other piece is filled with more power or prestige than the one that represents your name and being.

This is the signature jewelry piece for every Nooner because it does everything we don’t feel like doing, it tells the world who you are.  Everyone already secretly knows your name anyway but the diamond Initial reinforces your superior attitude.

And just remember, I’m sure he will always remember your name, but just incase you met him and you were both fucked up, this necklace helps him remember what name to scream.
