FOR THE LOVE OF

ALLEN COLEMAN STYLIST

Courtesy of all the love that’s floating around I decided to share  my favorite left-over from the 5 BRANDS X FWST featuring Bohten the eye wear brand . This look got left out simply because it was less cohesive with the whole direction of the editorial, both concept and style wise, but it’s still my one of my favorites from the shoot.

HAPPY SUITS!

IMG_9763Do not ignore my pose in the first photo, that is what happens when you walk around with Pharell’s ”Happy” stuck in your head. Back to regular schedule,sometimes it feels like my wardrobe will never rotate outside my fixation on blues juxtaposed against calm notes of earthy browns, but hey I thought Pamela was never going to come out of those red swim suits but  she did, so let’s not cross our fingers .

UMIT BENAN FALL 2014

_ARC0446.450x675I am in love with Umit Benan’s fall 2014 menswear collection, and this is not because nothing like its nature has ever graced the catwalk before, but simply because collection possess something most shows do not, style. There are no ground breaking designs or never before seen take on menswear, but it’s nothing short of the purest form of style one can put out for an audience to tap into.

MR. CARY GRANT WILL SEE YOU NOW

cary grant menswear outfit review

Its throw back Thursday, so it’s only right that we visit one of the iconic photos that started this style craze of mine. I f you do not recognize the gentleman in the photo please be advised; the possibility of us getting through a chocolate éclair over brunch is slimmer than the side view of an anorexic model. Mr. Cary Grant has single handedly jump started a lot of style journeys of men through time, feel free to hold him responsible for making the gray suit synonymous with the word cool, I mean look at him, I bet he woke up like this. His outfit is so basic yet utterly flamboyant, draped in a gray pinstriped suit with a generous lapel size and a hint of earth via his pocket square, every style accolade thrown at this man befits him in every way.

MS. DOROTHY ”DITA” DANDRIDGE

IMG_0064 I love picking out my share of outfits from the new arrival section, but there is just something about picking out vintage clothing that keeps a girl going back for more , it feels more like a sentimental ritual that this girl can’t seem to enough off. I picked out this cute 50’s collar dress in the name of every young elegant woman that roamed the summer streets of the 50’s .My advise is, If you buy vintage, dress it up like you own a time machine. I paired this cute sleeveless turquoise collar dress with a pair of white Dorothy Dandridge-esque pumps and a touch of brown via my belt just to add some ground to the light colors. (more photos)
