Treats to Ghoul Over!


If you didn’t already know, Halloween is by far one of my favorite holidays of the year.  Since I can remember, I loved dressing up in silly costumes and collecting loads of candy.  Who wouldn’t!?  Nowadays, I tend to treat everyday like Halloween, but instead of a costume, I’m dressing up in designer duds.  I hope everyone has a safe and scary night-Happy Halloween!

My Latest Obsession Featured on 303 Magazine

One of my favorite things to do when I encounter some down time is to scour the internet for some of the coolest new products on the market today.   My lastest obsession, as I like to call it, was created by famous athletic fashion brand  Nike.  They recently launched an exclusive line geared toward the eXtRaordinArY player in all of us.  As I’m in the process of gearing up to run my first 5k race over the Thanksgiving holiday, I thought it would be a great way to scare my competition stiff, literally.

With that said, 303 Magazine, Denver’s premiere boutique fashion & style magazine, got wind of my latest obsession and just had to let their readers know about it. Unfortunately, if you’re interested in purchasing a pair, Nike has confirmed they have sold out and there are no more being produced.  However, there are other brands selling similar styles so you can still get your hands on this lastest craze.

Exclusive: Shady Lady

One thing I love about the fall season is the ability to be able to layer and show off all your great accessories.  Aside from a scarf, I absolutely am never without an attractive pair of shades.  It completes a look, if you ask me.

With that said, I thought it would be fun to pick out some of the hottest sunglasses of the season and show them off in a great editorial titled, “Shady Lady.”  I do want to shout out famed fashion photographer Terry Richardson as he did inspire this feature.  Thank you for what you contribute to the industry and all that you create.

Lastly, as we near another election, I thought it would be fun to have both candidates make a cameo since they have been working really hard on the campaign trail.  It’s all in good fun and no harm is meant by certain shots.  All I ask?  Vote for BOOBS!

Saturday Morning Social Shout Out!

With social media the newest form of getting up-to-date news on what’s happening in the world,  I thought it might be fun to scour my Twitter feed on Saturday morning retweeting anything and everything standing out from the rest.  In fashion, we call these types of people trendsetters and on Twitter they’re called Tweetsetters, so I’m told.  With that said, this Saturday morning’s edition includes not only some very stylish group of dare devils, but a famous R & B singer giving us a glimpse into her latest creation, and a fashion brand helping us all get back to work with a little bit of style.

The Perfect Shoes for that Special Day

Men and shoes are like oil and water, they just don’t mix.  In fact, the one thing men tend to forget on the most important day of their life aside from the rings, is their formal footgear.  Along with those last-minute WDAS (Wedding Day Amnesia Syndrome) symptoms, some men tend to even have trouble choosing that special shoe leading up to that special day.  To make things a little less forgetful, I’ve teamed up with international shoe company Florsheim to share some of my favorite tips for choosing the correct wedding day clog.
