VINTAGE CUT

by Eddie Fortuna


Many times, all you need to tie together an outfit is a statement piece. For this one, I let this vintage double-breasted do all the work with an otherwise simple ensemble. I love the size of the lapels on this vintage jacket and felt compelled to pair it with a spread collar shirt and a slightly wider tie than I usually wear.

THE BIGGER, THE BETTER

Scarf | Muffler | Shawl = Large and in charge. 

You know the sayings, "The higher the heel the closer to Heaven", "The bigger the hair, the closer to God", and last but not least, "Everything is bigger in Texas"? Well, in the case of the scarf, its silhouette is getting quite larger. A scarf can play an integral part in acessorizing an outfit, and better yet, completing the look. So go out your comfort zone, and have fun with color, size, and patterns!

WEST ELM FEATURE!

by Eddie Fortuna


We had the immense pleasure of letting Samuel and Jordan of West Elm Dallas into our home last month to take some photos of the loft for the West Elm blog, Front + Main. It's always interesting to see a space you're so familiar with through someone else's eyes, and we couldn't be happier with the result. 

Here are some of the photos, but check out the entire feature on Front + Main!

STRIPES x STRIPES

'Tis the season to be playful with hosiery! Fa la la la, la la la! When I find myself not wanting to sacrifice wearing a shorter hem line, I keep my lower extremities warm with a pair of hose. Go out of your comfort zone and be fun! From different geometric shapes and colors, hosiery can easily accessorize your favorite outfit.

VARSITY SQUAD

by Eddie Fortuna


Not since high school have I worn a varsity jacket, but I've been wanting one since last winter, and I finally got one. In the very short time I've had it, I've paired it with jeans, sweats, and even these camo pants. I love the ease and versatility of this jacket and immediately feel cooler with it on. This color combination works with just about any outfit and is a more sartorially conscious  way to support, say... my Dallas Cowboys. So even if you don't see it on the blog too frequently, you will definitely see me running around with this jacket just about everywhere.

STRIPES | WOOL | CONVERSE

by Eddie Fortuna


What can I say...I am a sucker for a pair of Converse! They make me feel cooler than I actually am, especially when I want to take a different approach with my simple striped sweater and wool pencil skirt. They give almost any outfit an added edge that I love. When I know I am going to have a work day where I have to be quick on my feet, my sneakers do the trick. Bottom line... Don't get between me and my Converse.

CONCRETE JUNGLE

by Eddie Fortuna


Now that fall is in full swing, I can break out a few pieces (both old and new) for the season. First, my new hat: I wanted something bold for fall/winter, so I opted for a wool safari hat. Another piece I've been wanting for a while (and have inexplicably neglected to buy) is a fair isle sweater.  Thankfully, Angelee came home from work with this one last week and I absolutely love it. Finally, my semi-new piece is this cotton blazer from Suitsupply. I love how casual and versatile it is, yet it still has the details like functional cuff buttons that make the brand special.
