Dolce Italian Atlanta Saturday Brunch

•••
I actually used to get unisex or women's scarves because I preferred them for their style and size. Now that they're making them oversized for men, it opens up the options some... This scarf in particular by Asos, had a strong color combination, with mahogany, navy and gold that I felt would pair well with denim and a few of my favorite boots. Sometim[...]

Brunch in Black

•••
It actually was a glorious Sunday, but I still happened to Brunch in Black. This longline knit sweater added a different touch with the thumb hole detail that gave the look an interesting edge.

Fall Black

•••
If the Spring and Summer seasons are for white, I feel like the Fall and Winter season is for black. I find myself actually wearing too much black. I guess it just goes with the mood and cooler weather. It's very NYC. A very dark Gotham City vibe. Then it's the whole thing of not being too predictable/lazy and getting in the habit of wearing black on blac[...]

J.Crew Blue

•••
I've always wanted a jacket or sweater with the duffle buttons. It adds that slight ruggedness and grain to a clean garment. This sweater in particular has been one of my favorites by J.Crew (probably because of the shawl lapel). I like the direction their brand is going with some of their recent collaborations which have expanded the selection of the bra[...]

The Fall Fedora Flow

•••
We need the Fall Fedora Flow. The fedora is a classic accessory that has taken on new life, re-popularized by one of the leading style icons of this generation, Mr. Pharrell Williams. I guess REAL style is like a boomerang, you throw it out there, miss it for a minute (or a few decades), then it always comes back.  The coolest part of this evolution is th[...]

Like a G-Star

•••
G-Star has always been one of my favorite streetwear brands for Fall/Winter. My brother bought me this Nelson Vest on a trip to London in 2003 when I was a sophomore in college at Clark Atlanta University. Nobody in the states (besides NYC) was really on the brand heavy at that time... Now, with its larger retail expansion into the states, the brand is mo[...]

Loungin' at Marcel Atlanta | Part 1

•••
I don't usually buy into the hype... I really don't. BUT, I'm open to trying a new place when people that have true taste recommend them... I had been hearing so much about Marcel Atlanta (starting with this post here) that I had to try it for myself. A European Steakhouse with a throwback Gentleman's feel. Red tufted Italian leather, a sc[...]

The Black Indiana Jones

•••
So the plan was to hit up brunch for a few hours, then head to Tomorrow World, BUT the way that the weather was setup *Kevin Hart voice* it didn't quite work out that way... Due to the rain over the weekend and mud from all of the Ravers the first 2 days, they shutdown transportation to the festival grounds for the third and final day. We didn't find this ou[...]

Fall Fatigue: Straight Outta' Combat

•••
Atlanta weather always seems to have a mind of it's own, so when transitioning to fall, you gotta be flexible. For this Sunday Brunch, the weather was cooler so the colors got darker. Fatigue always has a way of working into Fall well, because of the brown and green, natural earth tones in the pattern. A lightweight merino wool sweater, like this one from[...]

Moët Diner En Blanc Atlanta 2015

•••
After attending the inaugural Le Diner en Blanc in Miami and Atlanta last year, I was looking forward to seeing how the dinner would evolve and grow... What new touches would they add? How would they keep it interesting? Their answer was: location! I don't know how they were able to pull this off (probably with the blessing of the Mayor), but they man[...]

The Power Suit

•••
My favorite show for the last 2 years has been Power.  To me, the show represents the essential balance between the street and corporate business world. To master this, we must understand The Power Suit. While my product is different, as a Branding Entrepreneur, much like the show's lead character, James St. Patrick (AKA Ghost) played by Omari Hardwick, I[...]

Brunch Heisman

•••
When you're feeling it, you gotta hit the Heisman!
