WIW Last Weekend: Anthony

Remember when you were little and your mom would tell you to tuck in your shirt because you looked sloppy? Well as it turns out she was right….well sometimes. Wore this on Mother’s Day this past weekend and was surprised at the difference a tucked in shirt could make. In fact, it makes ALL the difference in taking this simple outfit from casual to a bit more dressy. Though it might not work for every outfit, it’s an easy way to upgrade your outfit to looking more sophisticated and mom-approved. Lesson learned, mom. And don’t forget to wear a nice belt with your outfit guys!

The Winter Issue: Anthony

Sorry to all the Dustin “fans” out there, but here’s a pic of the equally "sexy" Anthony. (I made Dustin write that - jk, wrote that mah damn self! who gon’ check me, boo?)

Freckled Magazine asked us to show off a winter look and I chose this outfit because I love “ugly” sweaters and bright colors, but mostly because it doesn’t make me look fat. #realtalk

The ski sweater was a great vintage find from a local store in Jersey City, Another Man’s Treasure. I say great find because this winter, nordic/ski sweaters were popping up all over the internet and fashion magazines by some big brands for quadruple the price of what I paid for this sweater. See here. And to me, nothing says “winter” like a good knit sweater. The bright blue scarf, purple saddle shoes, and green pants are not necessarily “winter” colors but it’s a great reminder that you don’t have to follow the rules all the time as long as you feel confident and comfortable in the way you’re dressed. And I felt pretty damn good (and warm) in this outfit! Shoutout to my hips for striking that pose. LOL I don’t know why I was standing like that but I’m not mad either.

Mix & Match - Textures & Patterns

This is very much an "Anthony" look. Geek chic if you will. We wanted to have fun with different textures and patterns so we paired a bright solid red wool cardigan with a cotton plaid shirt and silk printed tie. Dark denim, our favorite vintage wingtips, and Anthony’s glasses complete the look.  All very different pieces, but together they create a unique and interesting look. Here’s Dustin posing on our rooftop in the final hours before he went blind from wearing Anthony’s prescription lenses.
