I wanted to incorporate men in my blog world because the truth of the matter is when I see a well dressed man my heart skips a beat. I love a man who compels me to put aside my “shyness” and tell him, ”You look nice.” I was once invited to a party at the Magnolia Hotel downtown. Those parties are typically pretty swank, so I wasn’t surprised to see guys in blazers, ties and full suits. There was a particular guy that just stood out from the crowd. He was wearing a black and grey striped cardigan sweater, black dress shirt, black and grey bow tie, dark denim straight leg jeans, a black belt and brown laced boots. The fact that I will never forget that should tell you this guy reeked style. I knew there was a purpose for the brown boots, and I was determined to figure it out! As I was examining him closely, I noticed something. The stripes on the sweater were horizontal, and the stripes on the bottom were very small. Midway through the bottom set of stripes, there was one (1) rusty-brown stripe. I literally could have screamed! The attention he gave that one brown stripe….I LOVED IT! As we were leaving I saw him walking to his car. I stopped him and said, “Can I ask you something?” He said, “Sure.” (probably thinking I wanted his telephone number) I said, “So you mean to tell me you wore those boots for that one brown stripe?” He laughed as he replied, “Oh, You noticed that?” HECK YES I DID, as would any fashionista. Guys we totally appreciate the effort you put into how you look.
I, personally, love to see men in suits. Some men are just built to “hang a suit”, and I SO APPRECIATE YOU GUYS! LOL :~) (blushing). Then again, I love to see a man in a NICE white v-neck and jeans. But, then there’s the guy who will play in colors with me! I LOVE HIM TOO! Guys, dress well…and smell good. We’ll love you for it!
***LOOKS I LOVE*** (by men I adore)
COLOR BLOCKING FOR HIM: (Red & black, black & grey, khaki & ___, black & white, etc. are all safe choices for the beginning blocker.)

I hope I did some justice. (The BMF will definitely let me know. LOL) These are just looks that “I” found attractive. Guys, whatever your style, step out of the box a little. Go for something bold. After all, they’re just clothes!
