Project Vegas: What I Wore Day 2

Suit, shirt - Born to Tailor | Loafers- Bally | Watch- Daniel Wellington | Tie, Tie clip- The Tie Bar

I can't digest the fact that summer 2014 is on its last chapter, In fact fashion week is right around the corner. BUT before seeing the collections at Lincoln Center during #NYFW, I was able to check out a handful during Project Vegas. For day 2 of the mega trade show, I decided to wear something "paneful", pun intended, a windowpane full suit, and the reason why it was "paneful" was because it was over 100 degrees in Vegas. I guess attempting to look sharp comes with a price, a price I'm willing to pay. For the second day, I visited a few of my favorite denim brands: AG jeans, Big Star USA, J Brand, Paige Denim, Hudson Jeans, and other favorites. Denim is definitely having a moment right now, I've never seen so many brands offering so many different styles, in addition to techniques being used. That's right, so it might be time for you to hang your plain go-to denim, and begin to experiment.

Project Vegas: What I Wore Day 1

Blazer & shirt - Born to Tailor | Jeans- 3x1 | Loafers- Gucci | Watch- Triwa

Project Vegas is always a good time, with good people. I had the opportunity to re-join the Blogger Project, curated by my homie, Marcus Troy, for another great season. Of course, when going to such a huge trade show, you have to think big and bring your A-GAME. SO--I reached out to my Tailor, Varun of Born-To-Tailor, to put together some bespoke suits. The fall season is right around the corner, and I knew I wanted to get ready for the new season with a hunter green double breasted jacket, but still wanted to remind myself summer is not over just yet, Therefore I went with a bright orange and blue gingham shirt, and coupled it with a pair of white skinny jeans by 3x1. My first day  I scoped the TENTS which featured many of my favorites such as Theory, Fred Perry, Onia, Anderson Belts, Ben Minkoff, Todd Snyder, and so much more. Huge thanks to the Project team for giving me the opportunity to get a glimpse of what Spring/Summer 2015 has in store.

Getting Rugged #EXPRESSJEANS

Jacket, T-shirt, Jeans- Express

HELLO! I'm finally back and settled from my quick trip to Vegas. Before I share with you guys my getups and the What I Wore's during the Project Show, I'm taking a break to show you guys how rugged is done. With summer sadly coming to an end, and the weather beginning to cool down, right now would be the perfect time to layer up.  I'm clearly into the suiting scene, but when it comes to the weekend, I just want to throw on my slouchy slim denim by Express, a white crew neck tee, and a (minus the) leather  jacket. There's something about black denim coupled with a leather jacket that makes me want to channel my inner James Dean, and feeling like a complete badass? I just might wear my #ExpressJeans all season long.
