Drunken office party selfie last night

I have only the vaguest recollection of taking this picture, but I do remember being happy about my outfit and how well my hair held up despite yesterday being the humid-est, grossest day ever. That’s right, nasty summer humidity doesn’t stop me from wearing a suit and tie. Suit is from H&M last year, shirt is probably Zara, tie is from Daffy’s. The skull ring I grabbed on Amazon a while back on a whim…Continue Reading →

I have a tie problem…

… and my problem is that I don’t have enough ties. My necktie collection hovers around the 50-60 mark at any given time. The vast majority of these are from all my usual haunts: Daffy’s (R.I.P.!) was my absolute best tie-shopping place for years, and at least a dozen of these are from there. The others are from JackThreads, H&M, Delaveine in Paris, celio* in Paris, and of course several of them were gifts. I…Continue Reading →

Diesel XXX party, Paris, 2008

My girlfriend worked for Diesel for a few years in Paris and I got to attend their “XXX” party in 2008; I decided to glam it up good and proper. How I miss those shoes!!! It’s funny, I actually don’t own a single thing from Diesel; you know how I feel about jeans. Oh wait, I lied, I do have a pair of Diesel sunglasses that were a gift and I really like them and…Continue Reading →

The time I was in Time Out New York’s Most Stylish New Yorkers (April 2011)

Hooboy, this is an interesting one; I’m simultaneously very proud and a little bit embarrassed to have been selected one of Time Out New York’s Most Stylish New Yorkers back in 2011. The photoshoot happened some months before the issue came out, and I’d just recently moved to NYC from Paris and was still figuring out shopping/dressing myself here. By the time the magazine hit the stands I didn’t love most of the things I’d…Continue Reading →

What not to wear: swamp edition

Haha, this one is quite a story. November 2008, I was living in France and had plans to visit my homeland of New Jersey, and I’d arranged to finally meet my dear friend Allen Crawford (aka Lord Whimsy) in real life for the very first time. Allen’s idea of a good time: trekking around in the New Jersey Pine Barrens (a huge pine forest full of bogs and swamps) and showing me lots of rare…Continue Reading →

New Orleans photoshoot with Kevin O’Mara

Photoshoot with the charming and talented Kevin O’Mara in New Orleans late last year. The clothes here are nothing special; just my most casual traveling clothes; cotton pants and a plain black shirt from H&M, blazer from Uniqlo, and my usual plain black Armani Exchange sunglasses. I’m wearing my most comfortable and conservative shoes here, aka my traveling shoes; simple and lovely little Italian numbers I snagged at Daffy’s in Philly approximately one million years…Continue Reading →

Me in my pink Parisian bathroom, 2007

I took this picture myself by setting my crappy little Canon PowerShot on the windowsill of my pink bathroom in the Parisian neighborhood of Pigalle. It’s probably my favorite picture of me that exists. Jacket is from Chateau Denim in Paris, shirt is from H&M, and tie is from Daffy’s (R.I.P.!) in Philadelphia. Hair by göt2b blasting freeze spray.
