CABLE-KNIT SUNSHINE

by Eddie Fortuna


How 'bout this January Texas weather? And, what a perfect day to bring out a comfy sweater! This marled cable knit sweater is an easy choice when cruisin' down the streets of Downtown Dallas.  Trying to keep your entire ensemble care-free? Throw on a structured hat for an easy hair day and to complete your outfit.  It's easy... Easy like Sunday Morning. ; )

FROM WORK, TO PLAY

by Eddie Fortuna


For those of you required to wear a shirt & tie, or even a suit to work, a word of advice for transitioning to Happy Hour and beyond: 

Top off your office-friendly outfit with a casual blazer. This one from Suitsupply is still perfectly tailored, but its unstructured cotton has a dusty tone to it that immediately makes a stiff work ensemble infinitely cooler.

Cheers!

COLD-WEATHER COLORS

by Eddie Fortuna


I know it's warming up now, but at the time of this shoot, it was freezing and Angelee and I were running around taking care of errands. Not wanting to worry about an overcoat, I decided to go heavy on the layering instead. It just so happens that it all turned out to be one of my more colorful ensembles.

ALL ABOUT THAT LACE

by Eddie Fortuna


It's simple, let the lace do the talking. When wearing lace, use it to accentuate your favorite feature of your  body. I decided on a shorter hem line (leg action) and the "A" line silhouette to draw the eye to smallest part of my body (my waist). Decide on that feature,  and show it off!

WHITE WINTER

by Eddie Fortuna


While white jeans are usually stowed away for spring/summer, I decided to pull mine from the closet and pair them with one of my favorite blazers. I love the contrast between the stark white of the jeans and the cozy, wintery feel of this alpaca/wool jacket.

GEOMETRIC LAYERS

by Eddie Fortuna


Triangles, rectangles, squares, Oh my! Why stop at mixing and matching with just colors, when you can also add in shapes.  One of the keys to styling geometric shapes together is to keep them proportional to one another. Don't be shy about trying this out because it can reward you in a new, chic way.

BACK TO WORK

by Eddie Fortuna


Now that Christmas is behind us, many of us will be gearing back up to return to the office. I love the color and cut of this suit and can't wait to wear the pieces as separates as well. I'm also in love with this new briefcase that Santa brought me this year.

HIS+HER x ATHLETA

by Eddie Fortuna


We had the pleasure of attending the grand opening event (hosted by the lovely Dallas Wardrobe) of the Athleta store on Turtle Creek. I fell in love with not only their workout gear, but also their lifestyle line.  I am an avid jogger and can appreciate a well-designed pair of workout pants. The pair I have on (pictured below) are even fleece insulated! If you haven't, you MUST check out their new spot.
