Condolences to PETA, but furs are hitting men’s fashion runways this season harder than Lindsay Lohan hit rock bottom. Of course, before the runways ever declared this massive new look as a trend, stars such as Kanye West, Pharrell and more were the originator’s for this season’s new fad. From bearskin rugs, shawls, hats and neck pieces, there are various ways that fur can be worn. For a recent fashion show that I coördinated, I decided to wear a black fur that would be the signature piece for this all-white outfit.
My inspiration for this outfit was definitely Rihanna. During a recent trip to London for fashion week, she wore an all black ensemble with a statement piece of a white fur. She looked so cool so I decided to recreate her look, but in white.
I found these glasses, which I call “Lady Gaga Telephone video glasses” inside of a store on Venice Beach during a recent trip to California. They were $10 and I was super excited to find them. These glasses add a certain level of classiness to any outfit!

We all have those days where we don’t want to dress up because we’re tired, sick or just plain ole not feeling it for the day! However, all of those feelings can still be used to make a great outfit.
My style inspiration for this outfit was urban with a little bit of a glamour boy twist. The two-piece beige ensemble was purchased at a thrift store for $4 and the Levi boots was purchased at Plato’s Closet for $20.
It’s been months since my last post. Months that were filled with great fashion moments that I never got around to posting. The above shot is a cool ensemble that I put together for my birthday, which just recently passed. I can’t really say that I had a theme for the outfit, I just knew that I wanted to stand out and I definitely did.
For my birthday, I rented a perfect hotel downtown Chicago. did some shopping, ate at a nice restaurant, a little bit of partying and then off to bed I went.
