So Details did THE BEST MENS SHOPS IN L.A. Though I agree with their choices why only 3? Yes, LA is incredibly style challenged. On any given day all you see is too-skinny, slacker actors in too-skinny colored jeans, vintage tees and those girly lil tennis shoes that make a man’s foot look like he’s a tranny at an all girls parochial school. This however just means they should stop shopping at Urban Outfitters (in the girls section) or Fred Segal (in any section).
This was either a good month or a bad month for shopping. In a way it was great because I spent very little money. But since I’m a consumer and consumers consume, it was kinda bad for the economy! In all honesty I don’t need a thing. I’m also on a new work out regimen. If I drop 20 it will be like having a whole new wardrobe since I can get back into my skinny clothes.
The Holidays are blissfully over. You have eaten and spent too much. Your New Year resolutions probably have something to do with more time in the gym and more money in the bank. Normally I’m a huge proponent of luxe. In 2009 I told you about the newest sports cars, a $15,000 chandelier and of course every gorgeous stitch sewn by Dolce & Gabbana, D Squared, Ralph Lauren, John Varvatos… Well the list is endless! I’m starting the year turning a new leaf (at least for one month). This month I’m going super green and I’m telling you how to clean up your act and give yourself a facial at home! With common ingredients found at your local grocery store no less!
I’ve been on a major tear lately. I don’t need a single thing ever again. I’m one of those people who has things in his closet with the price tag still on them. I ought to be ashamed. This money I’m spending should be working for me in a money market account. There is no excuse. Maybe it’s because it’s Christmas? I’m on the West Coast when my family is in the Midwest. And since I don’t live there… Yes. I’m a lil disconnected… Could I be shopping to make me feel better?
“Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens…
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens…
Brown paper packages tied up with strings…
These are a few of my favorite things…”
Fall is here. Summer was slamming but all that sun & fun can take it’s toll on your skin and hair. It’s time to go back to basics and make sure that your hair and skin are on point. After all it’s the first impression and boy does it count!
It’s summer time! Finally! And summer means one thing: Skin. You can’t avoid it. It’s the heat, it makes you crazy. You want to run around naked. Okay, maybe just shirtless. One thing is certain if you must pull that gesture your skin and face had better be on point!
Summer 09 is all about bold colors and startling combinations, but don’t be afraid. Wear those bright colors with white jeans, a cute pair of denim cut-offs (girls only, men should never wear a denim short) or a pair of khakis which balances the bright. Think color balanced by a neutral. Accessories? Think green. And when I say green I mean eco-friendly; canvas slip-ons for boys and wood bangles or maybe a gorgeous cork clutch for girls. Yes, I said cork.
Here are my hand picked selections for cool cats and hot chicks to look sweltering this summer. First up the men:
