“Cher was talking about her career, and how she equates herself to a bumper-car. She goes in one direction, hits a roadblock, backs up a little and goes in a new direction, always moving in the same direction but making little adjustments along the way.”—Chris Benz
“In 1943, the first New York Fashion Week was held, with one main purpose: to distract attention from French fashion during World War II, when workers in the fashion industry were unable to travel to Paris.
This was an opportune moment - as for centuries designers in America were thought to be…
Sorry for my absence these past couple of day. I have been preoccupied with my boyfriend visiting. He took my main focus away and allowed me to enjoy the city beyond school and my internship.
Now that he is sadly gone, I have more time to blog. Starting tomorrow I will go back to my daily style post. SInce the weather has changed, so will my outfits from now on. Lets hope I can diversify my outfits enough you all don’t get bored. Winter can be tough for me and my closet, since I’m from Texas I don’t have much of a winter selection.
On a side note though, anyone that is in NYC and wants to see great Halloween window displays I would recommend heading down to Bleeker Street. Their window displays are amazing, from Ralph Lauren to Marc Jacobs (even some residence as well) the neighborhood is filled with festive spirit.

Even on the most dreary of days in NYC you have to find a way to spruce up your outfit. Overcast days are too common in this city for them to allow your color to fade completely. This morning I could not decide on what to wear. Until I had my purple v-neck in the back of my closet, this was the perfect answer to my fashion distress call. I was able to make a comfortable outfit with just three main pieces jeans, polo, and a v-neck sweater. Also the shoes, I can’t forget my real area of comfort.
Something so simple, yet so functional for a business casual day.

Since today is my first day wearing my new Warby Parker glasses, I decided to make a look that went with the glasses. And since color is my favorite choice when it comes to making an outfit. I felt it was only appropriate to mix some of my most colorful clothing pieces. From red to yellow and a little blue in-between, I made a look that had a tone of color blocking with a touch of comfort. So don’t be afraid to try this look, I can almost promise you a compliment in advance.

This is a special appearance from my weekend, my two friends and I made a trip to Montreal. Here we are out at a gay club on the roof top terrace. Though most clubs don’t require much dressing up, I felt a simple polo would spruce up my outfit just like when I intern. My friends stayed true to their New York roots in all black, I stood out dancing with them. But who likes to blend in the crowd?
Cardigan: J-Crew T-Shirt: American Apparel Jeans: H&M Shoes: Toms Belt: H&M Ring: Jacobs by Marc Jacobs
When I was preparing for my outfit this morning, I was only anticipating cool lower sixties weather. Thus a simple yet warm cardigan that I’ve had since summer waiting to wear, today was the perfect day to break it out for the Fall season. My shoes were meant for comfort on my walk around Central park (until I got there and it was raining). Word to the wise, Toms don’t do well in the rain even after it has stopped. Water will still get wet in your toe area, as I learned the hard way. The cardigan though was perfect touch of comfort during my spontaneous day enjoying nyc.
This is one of my favorite UWS shoe stores just off of 72 and 8th ave. The first time I walked in I was amazed by the selection of shoes they carry from Toms to a large array of oxford shoes. I recommend this store to any man in search of a new pair of shoes in New York City.
