Happy Hugh Jackman Day

by deathmama

Actually, I'm not really a big Hugh Jackman fan. I'm just a giant "Hugh Jackman as Wolverine" fan.

Hello all. Tomorrow is my 37th birthday. I will be at the spa from mid morning to mid afternoon and then will be on a shopping jaunt with Robin at Nordstrom Rack. If we have time we might do the “Sag Harbor Challenge” at JC Penney’s. We’ll see. My point is that I won’t be logged on so much tomorrow so I thought I’d take the time today to wish myself a happy birthday. I was born in Japan so I think maybe if I’m on Japan time I am already 37 right now anyway. Please enjoy!

A Man for All Seasons

So… it seems I’m a lot more forgiving when it comes to men and fashion  . I don’t mind beer shirts, record store shirts, concert shirts or baseball shirts. It just needs to fit. And if it’s ripped, stained or faded, replace it. Make sure your pants aren’t sagging and that it’s not tapered or pleated. I really don’t want my guy to be putting more thought into his wardrobe than I do in mine. I should be the pretty one in the relationship. Is that bad?

That being said, I do appreciate men who demonstrate fine fashion sense.  Here is an example of a fellow with quite the range. He knows when to have fun, when to be serious, when to dress down, when to dress up. Effortlessly appropriate at any occasion.

Here, my friends, is a master at work. Just look at the coordination.

But that’s a lot to live up to. You don’t have to be Jim. Know yourself, and just be who you are. Is that too warm fuzzy rainbow bunny kitten?

P.S.

This has nothing to do with anything. Mmmm yum.

Why do guys get dressed?

This week I had an unusually socially packed weekend. On Saturday in particular, I was approached by at least three different guys asking me when I would start blogging about men’s fashion. Really? Wait. You read this? What do you want to hear about? You should start commenting and participating so we know you’re out there and let us know what interests you. In truth, I have been taking pictures of some funny looking men and keeping it in my fashion photo inventory. I haven’t had a chance to really think about it though, so nothing ever came of it. Besides, you tend to write what you know so I just blabber on about myself and my issues. Wait. Do men have issues? Most men I know seem to already know what’s going on and always look good or they don’t know what’s going on but don’t care. But maybe they do care. So I will start being more mindful of including men’s fashions I find ridiculous, as well as menswear I find pleasing.

For now, I will leave you to ponder this. Should you mix plaids? I thought that we had already agreed on a general rule that you can mix if they are in the same color family, or that you can mix if they are different sized plaids. But this guy keeps pushing our thinking. What do you think? Does the second one work? I think the first one does. I think he did this on purpose just to confuse us. What is his deal?

this basically works, right? because the colors go together.
