A few weeks ago I posted about a photo shoot I coordinated, styled and modeled in for Philly Current. Well.. the Style Issue is finally out! Above is 2/3 of my feature, but click here to zoom in and also see the third page! It was amazing pulling this feature together. More editorials are planned for the near future.

Today’s look!

This morning I was on PHL17 Eye Opener modeling for the Preakness at the Piazza event this Saturday!

The MS Society asked me to be the male fashion blogger voice and give tips for guys on how to dress in #PreaknessStyle.

With fellow bloggers.. Lauren of The Style Darling and Brittiny of Fashion of Philly. Also there’s Alex (Philly PR Girl Intern)!

For the segment I wore a seersucker suit by Original Penguin, a ‘Blueberry Bowtie’ shirt by 611 Lifestyle, and a striped bow tie. All available at Metro Mens Clothing!

Video clip of the segment coming soon!

Also I spoke with one of the designers over at Indochino to hear his opinion on dressing for a derby themed event. My interview post will be going up on Racked Philly this week!

Westland: Styling my first music video

Last weekend I had the privileged to work with the band Westland on their upcoming music video. They needed a cohesive look and I was brought onto the production team as stylist. Thankfully three great companies were willing to let me use clothing for the shoot. Last week I ran around to their various showrooms to grab looks. At my stop with 611 Lifestyle I was able to get some great flannels, dyed long sleeve tees, and a few slogan tees. Metro Mens Clothing had more “preppy” looks including this great Penguin brand jacket (fourth picture seen below). RAGs & Thread provided me with a handful of super soft crew and v-neck graphic tees that the boys of Westland loved! The day of the shoot while choosing outfit options, I snapped a few shots of the guys. The lighting was off so apologies for the quality. You’ll have to wait until the video releases to see what they actually ended up wearing!

So happy to have my friend Meghan with me. She worked her hair and make-up skills.

Check out her beauty page, MCX Expert Hair and Make Up!

I’ll upload the video and official band shots once they are finished!

Gorgeous at The Ritz

Last night I went to an event called “Gorgeous” at The Ritz Carlton. It was an evening of fashion and art to benefit City of Hope . Here are some of my favorites shots!

I wish I would have positioned myself better. A lot of my shots weren’t so good. There were many looks from Joan Shepp I loved.

I just downloaded the app, Vine. Mini videos integrated with Twitter are a great tool for fashion bloggers and brands to communicate more with their audiences. Here are some of my Vines from the night.

I also made a two Vines of Denise Fike, but I’ll share those in a few days when I upload the cute portrait she drew of me!
