I’ve been browsing through street-style photographs of the men stomping around during men’s fashion week in Paris for two weeks now. Scrolling through the photos like a teen cyber-stalking her favorite boy band. Continue reading “Men Style: Fashion Imitation Is The Sincerest…” »
I love me some color, from my printed head-wraps, to kelly green keds worn throughout the year, but sometimes stepping away from the color explosions is a good way to see stories beyond the colorful smoking mirrors. I’m approaching it the same way one would when visiting a perfume emporium. If testing several fragrances, smelling coffee beans in between will help you reset your sniffer. I’m reseting my blinkers with some black & white photos which inspire me.
Let the boys do all the leg work while I just sit and steal from their Christmas wish lists. I am not one to ask for clothes or shoes for Christmas since I prefer to get those myself, being a stylist and all. Gadgets, games, accessories that may require batteries and a remote, those are the types of goodies I like, and after looking are what some of the male friends in my life will be wishing for, I decided to add the text “Me Too” to certain goodies the fellas asked for.

“When he (Ghesquière) started Balenciaga in ’97, he was designing uniforms for Air France,” François-Henri Pinault. Fifteen years later and Nicolas Ghesquiere evolved not just his designing techniques, but also the great fashion house of Balenciaga, putting the brand among the greatest with handbags, shoes and accessories designed by Ghesquiere, that are collectors items and clothes that requires their own silhouette category. Nicolas Ghesquiere & Balenciaga has been the perfect fashion formula, with design hits putting them into the history books almost every year in the last decade. Upon hearing the news of Ghesquiere’s departure from his position as creative director of the fashion house, I decided to revisit some of Mr. Ghesquiere’s body of work and create my own Fashion year book, before Taschen publishes theirs.
How do you take some of the best moments from a legend in fashion and try to fit everything you love about that designer on the least amount of pages? Ha right, I didn’t. Since most of us are visual creatures, therefore I created an ebook filled with photos from every spring/summer fall/winer campaigns Nicolas Ghesquiere has been behind.
Now Nicolas Ghesquiere’s sucessor, Alexander Wang, has some work ahead of him; continuing what Nicolas has paved out, draped for him to live up to. Best of luck, Wang.
Women have tons of outlets (magazines, websites, tv ads, etc) to share our must-haves gifts during the holiday season and we have no problem letting the men in our lives know exactly what we want in our own inventive and resourceful ways!
Since this is the season of giving. I gave a couple of male friends the chance to tell us what they would like Santa to send their way on Christmas day.
I asked them to be creative with their lists and to keep the x-rated must-haves for their own personal Miss. Claus. They delivered with flying reindeers! Some of the goodies these guys want will be hopping onto my own Christmas list.
But back to the fellas, this is about them after all, and for lucky few I chose to share below I would like them to look at this as an opportunity to politely push or shove your wants into the faces of those you love. You can thank me later. Continue reading “Monday Men Style: Santa Loves You Too.” »
Tweed has been tagged as the stuffy, rough and unfinished fabric that rarely every gets picked as the first one off the rack. Decades ago it was only worn during outdoor activities, for casual outerwear, and it was a favorite of the Irish. Fashion is anything but traditional and any chance we get to go against the grain, we take it. Continue reading “Monday Men Style: Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Yum” »

You see that photo above, the one where Denzel Washington is approaching with a smile, and hand open for a handshake? That comes close to a daydream I’ve had meeting the legendary actor. My daydream involves the actor coming towards me, strutting like the king of the jungle, smiling all the way until the big, long hug getting em close enough to smell him! I don’t really want to share where my daydream takes us after the hug, but I can tell you there will eventually be some food and good talk!
Think about the lawyers you’ve meet in your lifetime. The ones you see on television, others at your local courthouse while serving jury duty, or maybe one that is a friend or you know indirectly. Now does anyone one of them, dress like this?
No spoken words can be heard, just music, visible smiles, and positive body language. The Sartorialist is know for telling a story or capturing the essence of his subject through a photograph. With this video he shows how well these fashionable men from all over the world can set aside one night in a city to come together and share stories, life experiences, and laugh over an Italian meal.

The floral love, women have been obsessing over, has turned into a shared trend, just the fellas approach it with a less is more mentality.
