A Major Problem In Society

Le Sigh

As I grow older and begin to actually care  about the society that I live in, I take notice to the problems that we face. There are so many so it’s truly hard to start talking about just everything from politics, to civil liberties, healthcare, etc. There are a lot of problems in our society and not just here but all over the world.

However, since I don’t have a degree in any of those subjects, I won’t give my opinion. I’m sure that many people who say “Are you kidding me? ” “That’s not a problem!” “You’re a brat!” I’ll own up to the last one but this problem is one that plagues me quite often in life.

Amen!!
Amen!!

You’re getting dressed in an amazing outfit. It’s perfect from head to toe. Everything coordinates. It’s the right cut. It is your voice for the evening. Uh oh! “I CAN’T EVER WEAR THIS OUTFIT AGAIN”

A few years ago, when I was on a Ksubi denim kick, they had a Jeremy Scott limited edition pair which I snagged on eBay(great deal), I also have this amazing Alexander McQueen white tee-shirt, and a pretty rad Dolce & Gabanna blazer. Somehow or another the outfit works! It really does. One day I was looking through pictures and noticed I had it on in multiple pictures. EEK! How did that happen? Why didn’t anyone stop me? 

Recently, I was in the mall and this store was closing down that place so they were having this amazing blowout sale! I purchased a yellow blazer white blue paisley and two interesting 80s style jackets. As I envisioned what else I would wear with these three very unique and bold pieces, I asked myself, how do I wear these pieces not just that first time but other ways so that I get the most out of my clothing.

Have you ever found yourself in this predicament? What would you do? How do you take your best pieces and make them key elements more than once?

Breathe Again

 

This song is beautiful

“And I can’t stop thinkin’ about. About the way my life would be. No I can’t stop thinkin’ about. How your love could be leavin’ me. And I can’t get you outta my mind. God knows how hard I tried. And if you walked right out my life. God knows I surely die!……..That, I shall never, never breathe again. Breathe again!”

This is something myself doing quite often about you. As long as I can remember you’ve been an important factor in my life. It’s a different kind of love. You mean so much to me. You really do. I hold you to a different light in my life. I appreciate all that you done. The times through good and bad, you’ve helped me make it through. I really do and now this is really hard for me to say.

I think we need to take a break from each other. Just a little while. You’ll understand someday. I just want you to have the strength and courage to remain strong as I’ll do the same for you. If things remain afterwards then “We’re in this love together and we got the kind that’ll last forever!”-Al Jarreau I’m embarking on a different path and while I know you’ll be there right by my side, supporting me the entire time, I need to do this on my own. I need to appreciate you for all your worth! Appreciate the beauty of you! Treat you like you all that your worth! Can you understand the pain? Can you stand the rain?

Just taking a needed break from buying shoes that I really have no use for. Just trying to plan a little more responsibly for the next chapter in life!

Print. Logo. Bold :  From internet symbols, racing stripes and literally off your public transportation. The typical floral pattern is always a safe bet but why not live a little and get graphic!

Let’s Be Tasteful With Our Camo: Personally, not one of my favorites. Ever. For some reason, this trend just doesn’t stay where it belongs. Do you plan on wearing camo to the office anytime soon? Consider camo  a bright color. Now contrast with solid pieces. An accessory such as a bag, iPad case, etc. gives you a OOTD that is right on the money!

Wear Denim Together. Wash Separate: Wearing different color denim washes together creates an effortlessly cool look. Stick to washes two shades different from each other or you can always turn it up by wearing colored denim. Have fun with this. Why not try acid-wash, white,black or even super light jeans.

The Key Is In The Details: It’s the simple little details on a shirt matter! Variations in fabric allow people to actually notice your own unique style. A paisley elbow and a speckled Chambray are clear indicators of bold and boring. No matter how expensive a piece of clothing is, a guy really only feels confident in his own clothes. Style is about noticing things that others don’t. That’s why it’s important to develop an eye for things you like that your less fashionable friends might not notice.

Brave. Bold. Choose Carefully: I’m a firm believer that at least one thing in your closet should scream when you open the closet door! So why can’t it be your jacket. Camo is an option, plaid or another pattern that pleases your eye. Stay safe with Olive, Tan, Grey and Black. Remember if it’s too bold, you might have to wait to recycle that look!

Jog In Style: Well, I’ll pretend to jog. Balenciaga, Maison Martin Margiela and many more have in common?  They have in common the ability to make sneakers beyond belief. Gone are the days of having a pair of ugly shoes to go with your “Casual Run Around & Do Errands” outfit. Futuristic. Sleek. Bold.

Neon Lights. Neon Lights: Keep It Cute or Put It On Mute. If you opt for trying this out, keep it pretty low-key by wearing darker colors. People will think your super stylish because you’re wearing such a daring choice!

Blacker Than Black: Black is one of the easiest colors to actually build your daily look from. It’s why it’s the uniform of choice among the fashionable. You’ll always look dressed up, super chic without trying. Tones aren’t the issue here, the problem your going to run into is fabric. Cottons and linens are great for easy to move in, breathable materials and looser fit tees and buttons up help you from becoming a sticky mess.

Just a few ways to reinvent your style for the spring. Be a bit daring. Everyone will tell you how dashing you look.
