LIGHT LAYERS

by Eddie Fortuna


It's spring! And 'tis the season to fight the humidity with light cottons and linens. Even though I already miss winter, I'm ready to take full advantage of the opportunity to wear barely-there fabrics and to introduce more colors to my wardrobe. I just got this jacket back from the tailor and decided to pair it with my un-ironed OCBD. Honestly, if I had to choose a signature look, it would be this: a tailored jacket, an OCBD, may favorite jeans, and tassel loafers.

STOP & SMELL THE FLOWERS

by Eddie Fortuna


"Florals for Spring...so original." I cannot deny that I REALLY love florals year 'round, but ESPECIALLY for spring time.  I wanted to mention that I sometimes do have a difficult time finding pants to fit my voluptuous (rolling my eyes) thighs. Thank you 90's baggy pants for being ever so forgiving and making your way back into my life. Let's just say this outfit makes me feel like a million bucks! What's yours? If you don't have an answer, it's okay. Just take your time to stop and smell the flowers before you decide.

MONDAY BLUES

by Eddie Fortuna


Fact: Nobody likes Mondays. However, if you hit the ground running out the door in your favorite suit, they're a little easier to deal with. I'm currently in love with my new royal blue suit from Suitsupply. It's no secret that I've become mildly obsessed with this brand, but can you blame me?? It's not one I'd wear to a client meeting, but this suit is great to pull out for special events. I feel like a million bucks when I wear it-- especially standing in front of this beautiful brass hardware at the Trammell Crow Center.

ADVENTURES IN DOG-SITTING

by Eddie Fortuna


Every once in a while, we have the pleasure of dog-sitting for our dear friends, Jared and Meredith. Together, they own June (the tan Golden Doodle) and Margot (the black Doodle/Wolfhound), whom we absolutely adore and sometimes pretend we own.

On this occasion we had them for the weekend, and as usual, our time was filled with trips to the dog run, snuggling on the sofa, and some silly photos. However, we decided to take a special walk around downtown with our favorite photographers (Josh & Yesi) to show these pups the rest of our neighborhood.

HOOK 'EM HORNS!

by Eddie Fortuna


April Fool's. 

First thing's first: despite the color of my new jacket, I do NOT root for those University of Texas Longhorns in any form or fashion. However, I couldn't resist picking up this cotton Suitsupply double-breasted blazer. I have seriously become mildly addicted to the brand-- so much so that I'm actually wearing a color I spent all my college years making fun of and vowed never to wear: burnt orange. 

Even though the colors of this ensemble feel more akin to the fall, the materials are very much appropriate for spring/summer. This unlined blazer felt minimal during last weekend's outdoor #MockingbirdStyles event, as did my sock-less loafers. 

Oh yeah, and WRECK 'EM TECH!

CERULEAN

by Eddie Fortuna


Need to know how to dress for the cool and windy, yet sunny days? It's all about wardrobing and shedding the right pieces. The key? TRANSITIONAL PIECES!! Transitional pieces can be found in a sweater, jeans, a scarf, leather booties, and even a dress. I couldn't resist wearing my knit cerulean sweater with my staple black mini for this breezy spring day. I am enjoying every minute of this type of weather before the heat wave of Texas summers.

CONSERVATIVE SPREAD

by Eddie Fortuna


Whenever I pull together a more conservative outfit, I like to offset it with details that show a little more flair than I would normally employ. I've fallen in love with the cutaway collar on this shirt from Twillory and the functioning sleeve buttons on this Suitsupply blazer. I also decided on a puff fold with my handkerchief to lean less business-casual, and more hashtag-menswear.

CHANGE OF SCENERY

by Angelee Fortuna


As you know, Eddie and I are big advocates for downtown here in Dallas. We live here and most of our photo shoots take place here. However, another neighborhood we're really digging right now is the up-and-coming Design District. We had the pleasure of meeting with the folks at LAB ART to discuss some events on the horizon, and on the way back home, couldn't help but make a pit-stop at this cool little spot.
