STYLE: Gucci Gucci Gumdrops

Posted by:

I nearly smacked a customer the other day… While I was showing a woven leather bracelet to a client of mine, she looked at it curiously; she bent it, flexed it, and fit it onto her wrist. She shook her […]


STYLE: Kim Jones for Louis Vuitton

Posted by:

You know, lately I’ve been wavering about this whole fashion scene. This ideal of perfection within a simple garment, transforming self and transforming the world; knowing the personalities behind the runway often with some sort of chip on their shoulder […]


STYLE: OMG… Shoes.

Posted by:

I looked really good yesterday, honest. I made my strut down to an interested modeling agency in the simplest grey tank top and light jeans. But that wasn’t the best part (it rarely is). Most people wear the cherry on […]

STYLE: Flashy Bond

Posted by:

General Knot & Co. from OUTFLUENCED on Vimeo. I’m dreading the new addition to the Bond-film family. Unless he man’s up a bit and does everything to the old-fashioned theme song, I’m afraid this new 007 adventure will be lost […]

FEATURE: The Fashionably Eccentric and Lace

Posted by:

GEAR: The Awesome and The Ugly

Posted by:

Technology is awesome. Yes, this I know. This is something that we all know.  It’s fast, it’s fun, it’s shiny, oh so expensive and yes, we all love it. But it’s ugly. Home technology is garish, and blatantly obnoxious. It […]


STYLE: Solving World Hunger

Posted by:

I think I’ve solved world hunger. Sure…my high school graduation class voted the guy with the 120% average to do this – but I’ve beaten him (take that, Allen! Now…go cure Cancer). Now, I’m sure the board at the Nobel […]

Help!  The 1940's are coming back to get me!!!  Image from iStockphoto/Thinkstock.

STYLE: Deloreans and Pin Stripes

Posted by:

Lately I have been pondering about society’s current fascination (actually more like a guilty pleasure) of diving back into the pool of the past and seeing how deep they can go without forgetting to come back up for air. Even I am convinced, on […]


STYLE: Top Gear and the Spring 2012 Collections for Men

Posted by:

*Insert British accent here* Hello, Gentlemen. It’s that time of year again, where the snow is turning to rain and the flowers are starting to bloom.  We’re ending the latest Top Gear season and along with the new car smell there is […]
