Thinking Outside The Box: A Gift For Him

February 22, 2012

Unless your husband-to-be has a very serious passion or hobby, deciding what to give him as a wedding gift can be difficult. If you find yourself struggling to find the perfect gift thinking outside the box may be your best course of action. Is your husband-to-be a technophile or an audiophile? Think ipad or vintage vinyl. Does he love to fish or rock climb? Think long weekend fishing excursion or new climbing equipment. Whatever direction you decide to go in take time to reflect on his passions. And remember if it is from the heart he is sure to love whatever you give him.

Groom Inspiration-Trends for 2012

February 16, 2012

I thought I would change things up a bit and report on the upcoming trends in men’s fashion for 2012. Milan just finished up their Autumn/Winter fashion week so I’ve been scouring UK Vogue for all the latest updates. Fall is shaping up to be the season of the suit and nobody does it better than Christopher Bailey for Burberry Prorsum. He executed yet another flawless collection, showcasing the traditional edge of Burberry to his streamlined silhouettes. His show was called The Gentlemen and I can’t think of a better word that described this collection. A few other standouts for me were Dolce & GabbanaLouis Vuitton and Alexander McQueen. I’m seeing lot’s of gray, blue, and black for fall with a splash of color.

Groom Style – Pattern Play

October 27, 2011

Image found on Tumblr    

Newsflash: All grooms do not have to wear the go-to black suit/tuxedo. Although it is a classic and you really can’t go wrong with black – there are plenty of options out there to show off your personal style & personality.  Also, don’t be scared to pair patterns together, it gives men a masculine & sophisticated look (think Mad Men).
