I Know What Girls Like: How to Impress Your Lady on Date Night

10:09 AM

This one is for the boys who are trying to impress the ladies. Hopefully by now you’ve worked your charm and you got that pretty young thing to agree to go on a date with you. You won her over with your personality and mutual interests, but you need to keep impressing her. She’s going to want to see how dynamic you are and how you flourish in different settings.

Basically, we women, notice details and we’re using them to judge you. While we’re enjoying the moment with you, we’re also trying to determine what a future with you would be like (whether its short term or long term). Your first impressions are vital, so you better dress to the nines and open doors for us – chivalry is NOT dead.  (more…)

What’s Your Wardrobe’s Theme Song?

11:15 AM

Grand Central StationHave you ever seen that episode of Family Guy where Peter wishes he had theme music that plays accordingly with his life situations? How cool would it be to have your own theme song that followed you throughout the day and changed with your mood and surroundings? It would take a lot of the guesswork out for the people around us. That’s what we do with our daily style in a way- we send a message out to the people around us what kind of mood we’re in. But with the amount of black I wear daily people would probably assume that I’m either perpetually depressed or that I don’t like to sort laundry.

Whenever I’m getting dressed and piling on gold accessories with one of my many moto jackets, I imagine some cross between Linkin Park and Shakira playing in the background (still keeping my fingers crossed that they’ll get together for a collaboration). For the rest of the day I have some dramatic mysterious beat following me while I people watch from behind my sunglasses. (more…)

Street Style Update – Lucky Charms – Do you have one?

11:02 AM

Lucky Charms

I hope you all had a grand St. Patrick’s Day and are shuffling back to your daily schedules seamlessly. It was uplifting to see all of NYC come together this weekend to paint the town the same shade of Kelly green, and everyone adorning themselves in lucky shamrocks to celebrate. I, being the nonconformist that I am, wore my own special lucky charm – my lucky bullet, tucked neatly under my Confessions-of-a-Shopaholic-esque, festive green scarf.

Everyone who knows me, knows I wear my lucky bullet every day. Even if for some odd reason I don’t have it on, I still like to credit its existence for the good fortune that comes my way. People ask me “Why the bullet?” and I reply “Because it was there when I didn’t die.” It was one of those crazy NY movie moments that I’d have to explain to you over coffee. For a similar look to mine, try pairing a Donni Charm scarf with any one of Jennifer Zeuner lucky-charm-worthy necklaces.  (more…)
