I’m back. Back in black to be exact. Excuse my brief hiatus from posting but the styling gods have been blessing me aplenty with work in the last couple of months—so much work that unfortunately my blog has taken the toll!

Though we are more than half way finished with fall for some reason mother nature keeps deciding that us Angelenos are yet to be finished with summer. How am I protesting this? By wearing black of course—you know I’m not one to shy away from a fabulous all black moment. I’m officially in mourning because we are doomed to roast to death with swamp ass aplenty for the rest of the year. I wouldn’t be surprised if I found myself donning shorts and Birkenstocks come Christmas day; this heat is ridiculous!

Another recent update? I’ve been drawing plenty of vintage inspiration for my outfits. I’m really into this whole greaser 50s throwback I keep seeing on men in street style photographs and other popular blogs. I blame Miuccia Prada for this. Have you seen the collection she sent down the runway for her men’s AW16 show? The silhouettes and cuts are full of old time nostalgia. I definitely took note of those style cues when I put this look together.

Men, try adding some style throwback the next time you want a standout ensemble. I promise the results will make you exude classic confidence!
