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[...]

GameDay Trip to Athens

•••
Despite a total monsoon and HUGE blowout loss suffered by the Bulldogs on this lovely Saturday, I had a great time on my first GameDay trip to Athens. This was mostly in part to my gracious friends at CraftBoxGirls and the Georgia Beef Board who selected me to be part of a Social Influencer group to attend the festivities. It all started with a fun bu[...]

Fly for Fall

•••
To me, Fly for Fall means to be confident in your look regardless of the weather, season or time of year. We all have a way we express our individuality through style... A lot of it comes from where we're going and where we came from. Growing up in Maryland (DMV), with most of my extended family living between there and New York, we grew up with a few Fall s[...]

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 Panama Hat

•••
Physically in Atlanta, mentally in Panama...  Besides just being a cool hat, the Panama Hat actually has an even cooler story. It was originally named the "Panama Hat" when president Theodore Roosevelt wore it on his first trip to the Panama Canal in the early 20th Century, somewhere around 1915. Since that time, with it's lightweight, handwoven const[...]

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[...]
