Christmas countdown

So the holidays seems to be going by real fast which can be a blessing and a curse. We just celebrated thanksgiving and Christmas came rushing in like mighty rushing wind. I can't deal..... the year has been going by quickly and in just a few short weeks we will be welcoming a new year. I promised myself no new, New Years resolutions..(ha hah singing in my head "tell me why you lying,cause you know you lying"). I guess this past year has been about just embracing the moments of "Now" for me. Yet if you're one of those people that love the holiday season then you have already mastered what I call "smart shopping". Shop ahead and know the people you're shopping for because the wrong gift will get you a fruit cake the next Christmas. We all know how much we "love fruitcake" (<----sarcasm). I know Christmas is about more than gifts,its enjoying your family,it's your community,and the festivities. For the fashionista I have my what on your list this Christmas?

On my wish list.......

The Holiday Wish List With Neiman Marcus: Contest Entry


Now if you haven't discover the blog then you might of fallen into their Instagram page "MWST" or I like to refer to them but better known as Men with street style is fabulous. I know it's not a men crush Monday of the typical kind, and might be because I don't do those. I do love a well dress gentleman yes I do....and men can be just as fashionable or fashion forward as women. Never underestimate the power of self expression as we all speak of ourselves a lot more visually than you think. Some guys just naturally get's about being metro-sexual but putting your best foot forward and let others appreciate. To MWST I trully do appreciate it.......So what are your fav Instagram accounts for #MCM!!

Also Oxfords will never be out of style from Prada to Cole Haan
I've seen brogues on the high street numerous times over the past year, and have never been taken head over heels by any of them, however the perfect combination of contemporary colour and traditional style drew me into this example: PRADA Levitate Wingtips:

Cole Haan
There are numerous styles of shoes out there, but what's great about being a man is that you can do perfectly well by sticking with just a few. You don't need to maintain some Carrie Bradshaw–esque obsession about the latest and coolest. If you invest in a handful of sensible (and stylish) pairs and take care of them, you'll be set for years. You just need to take that first step.:

American Music Awards 2015

So last night was the AMA's 2015 but before we get a run down for best dressed list or the looks I was "dag-on it I want it" moment.I have to give it up to J-Lo 40+ never looked so great and she torched the stage. I applauded because what most artist are lacking today is stage presence and performance ability. The use to teach that and if you don't know what i'm talking about, go back and look for Motown history and you will what I mean.Most artist nowadays cant put on a good performance to save their lives the choices are few and far between. Still there were some very good moments and I do have to say some stepped up their fashion game last night as well. I was in love with some Fashion choices and others well....I will not say nothing bad about noooohh-body.....SHHHHHH!!!

Its Friday....

Do pardon the language but I was having a discussion with a few close friends and discussing relationships.We have different kinds of relationships with people in our lives.There are some that come with people who simply have a seat in your life to fill up space.The audience of your life that sit and applaud your shortcomings.They don't grow you,wish you well,matter or fact some even forget you exist,they pop up on occasions. Don't blame them though at the end of the day we offer the seat.If it's not available you cant have one and I don't like people taking up unnecessary space. So no one should never be a willing participant accepting applications for seat fillers.Either be present or leave,because the chair needs to be open for a person who really want that seat in your life.You can't or won't ever miss what won't miss you because guess what at the end of the day....see above message!!!

Fall into the flats....I know ballerina shoes have been the "IT" thing for the past few seasons. You still got to admit some of them were really quite ugly if I do say so myself.

Earn your stripes

So thanksgiving is right around the corner....yesss not complaining because this is the time of year you are allowed to break all diet regulations. Now i'm not advocating breaking the rules because as soon as thanks giving is over New years will be around the corner. Every body know we all struggle to lose the weight we gain after the thanksgiving feast. I always said this is why the "little black dress" became a must have item. It hides a boatload of shame and great amount of past guilt from holiday past. Well if you're not a color black person most people aren't...problem solved stripes are in and back in the greatest of ways. Thank god for that other then black and rushing patterns will let you get away with murder. The point is pick according to your body structure if not you might end looking like "bozo behind bars".....other than these two suggestions what would you guys recommend having in your wardrobe post Thanksgiving to cure the holiday weight gain blues?

Just in case here are some great picks to think about..........................Trend Edit: Spliced Geometrics -S/S 2016 – BOLD DIAGONALS / STRUCTURED COLOUR BLOCKING / ARCHITECTURAL REFERENCES / CONTEMPORARY STRIPES & CHECKS:
