Paris Fashion Week 2018: Day Three Outfit of the Day

I revel in drama. I am a situational extrovert – which means, for the most part, I am an introvert who is able to manifest a sliver of social skills & graces, when necessary. One polarizing personality trait that stands in defiance of this fact, is that when I am aware I look good, I…

SA Menswear Week AW16 – Day 2

Day 2 began with about as much fanfare as the amount of sleep I’ve had these past few days – which is to say none! The best summation of what day 2 offered is that rather than forcing interest on what attendees donned, it was the actual Fall 2016 collections on the catwalk, that kept…

Menswear – without a doubt, thee most under-appreciated forte of fashion. I took my new Canon for a spin and caught some really good stuff that men wear, or could possibly don.
