Same Old Love

One of my favorite things about style versus fashion is mixing high end and low end, old and new. I love the dichotomy of it all. I love the way fashion cycles through trends, updating classics every twenty years or so.

Take this look; I’ve got the ubiquitous button-front skirt, an update from the late 60s/70s trend of mod meets boheme. Then I’ve got the vintage handbag, and vintage silk scarf, mixed with the modern OTK boots Tech turtleneck.

It Takes More Than Bricks To Build A Home


A fun little outfit post taken in my home. Rainy days are no fun, but when you’re on a victorian couch reading a pile of magazines feeling fabulous they can be alright. Nothing like a glass of wine in a dimly lit room to end a night right, amiright!?

Strapped in Men

I rarely post about men’s fashion. Simply, straight men are barely interested in fashion and I personally don’t have much interest in men’s fashion. I have been seeing a lot of styles on guys, though, that I’ve recently been seeing around more and more and I must say I like it.

The reformed, fashionable man is coming back into style. Suspenders, higher pants, crisp shirts, cardigans, etc. Fedoras, suspenders, bow ties, and other vintage accessories are being seen as well. Take this wedding party image for example; perfectly well dressed, handsome men.

They’re so adorable.

With the recent Men’s fashion week shows happenning I’ve been able to keep up with and track which designers have caught on and are making these styles more and more acceptable.

My first favorite? Dolce and Gabbana. They’re new men’s spring 2011 line is inspired by Charlie Chaplin (note the image to the right).

Gucci and Dior, among others are following suit, while the streets are taking the style where it belongs.

Lookbook.nu has a lot of men with the style as well. Personally, I think it’s adorable. I wish all men would dress like that, hint hint. 😉

Also a recently seen trend on the runways is blazers with cargo shorts; a cleaned up yet laid back mix of a look.  It’s been on Dior, Dolce and Gabbana, Emporio Armani, Louis Vuitton, Lanvin, Prada….you get the picture. For Spring 2011, this trend will take hold full force, and I know I’m looking forward to some sexy business, laid back man candy.

So, men, where to find these looks? Suspenders can be found anywhere from Mr Tux to Hot Topic and Spencer’s. Bow Ties and skinny ties are best found at tuxedo/suit shops or the occasional accessories area of H&M and Forever 21. Shorts are everywhere, and blazers could be found at most higher class’d stores that carry suit pieces. That’s all I can offer for advice currently, but I’ll be doing a big men’s post come late August/September.

Enjoy for now and I hope to start seeing some better dressed dudes !
