Shopping for Graduation

A few may know that I will be graduating in 8 weeks. So I am freaking out about what I am going to do with my life, where I am going to end up, and what future steps I should be taking to work towards achieving my goals and dreams. But somedays I try to forget all about these worries and I try to figure out what shopping I need to get done for the events that are taking place then. My parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents are flying in for my graduation. I feel so blessed that they are all coming that’s why I am already excited about it.  When thinking about  the graduation ceremony the first thing that comes to mind  is what would I wear on that day.

A few days ago I went suit window shopping, and my jaw dropped when I saw this suit at Suit Supply. I love the idea that it is a day suit and double breasted. If I would wear it, I would style it differently. I was thinking of wearing it with a knit straight end tie and monks. Tell me what you think about it!

Daily Obsessions

Being in the holiday season everyone might be running around purchasing outfits for weddings that are taking place, New Years parties, and Christmas Eve parties as well. I always love outfits that are classic but will allow you to pop out in between everyone. If you are willing to be bold enough, I would go with this velvet tuxedo. Perfect for that New Years and Christmas party you are going to. It is classic, It is amazingly cut, and it pops out.

Daily Obsessions

So today I am going to have two posts in celebration of my 21st birthday. I know, I am getting old… It also manages to be the day where I have to take my graduation photos. It feels like I am in a new stage in my life, flipping the page and hopefully moving to something bigger and better. Thinking about the future I came to a conclusion, now that I am getting older I need to create a wardrobe wish list. This wish list should have sharper day to day outfits, and lucky me I just found the first thing I am going to put on this list. This Kenzo turquoise suit will be the first on my list, it may be an unconventional color, and it may look bad if worn incorrectly but I am ready to take on that challenge. I can imagine myself wearing this suit in the spring sitting in a café in Italy waiting for a fashion show to start. (I might be dreaming way too much, but I go with concept called “dream big”).

Must Have

Brioni, Brioni, oh Brioni can this tuxedo be any more perfect? I think not! This tuxedo is the result of a venture between Brioni and Mr. Porter. Their approach and inspiration to create this tuxedo came from this quote “Strive for perfection in everything you do. Take the best that exists and make it better. When it does not exist, design it. Accept nothing nearly right or good enough.” –  Sir Henry Royce (co-founder of Rolls-Royce). I can just imagine the perfect scenario to wear this tuxedo. Imagine yourself at a private event; standing underneath the shadow of a The Eiffel Tower, Or The Leaning Tower of Pisa, Or in a Medieval castle. Scanning your surroundings and just taking in all the beauty of the venue, the event, the people, and the outfits. Then, you just say to yourself “La Dolce Vita!”
