Okay, Americans*, I’m gonna give it to you straight: the clothes you are wearing in Paris make you really stand out as a tourist, and you look sloppy and underdressed and disrespectful almost everywhere you go. You stand out like a sore thumb; the Parisians can spot an American a kilometer away. This isn’t necessarily a terrible thing in itself, but wouldn’t… (Read more…)
Here are the three ties with skull patterns that I currently have in my collection. The one on the left is from H&M many, many years ago, and the one on the right is from H&M just recently. The one in the center is my favorite, and I have no idea where it came from; I’m 99% sure my girlfriend bought it for me as a gift, and I’m 99% sure she got it in…Continue Reading →
While I’m still working on my screenshots for all of Hannibal’s amazing suits from NBC’s Hannibal season deux, here are H-bomb’s biggest fashion faux-pas from this season: Boring dad Hannibal: KGB reject Hannibal: Stoner roommate Hannibal: I’ll get all of the season 2 suits online tomorrow.

I could stare at those assorted checks and pinstripes and paisleys forever. I would straight-up kill for most of these suits (and those ties!), but the weird zipped-up-sweater things he’s rocking in episode 3 (in blue and red) I can definitely…Continue Reading →
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 →
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.
