On Campus... "Maxi, king of summer 2011," Virginia Tech













































The Maxi dress was definitely king in Southwest Virginia for ladies fashion. I was in Miami and other parts of Florida about two years back and they were everywhere. Fashion needs to not take so long to make it to the mountains.

To Code: Don't be a "Bubble Butt!"

To Code: A Guide to Being A Better Gentleman 

As modern men, we feel the need to carry everything we own with us -- smart phones, iPods, digital cameras, chap-stick, keys, etc. -- in our pockets which = pocket overkill. Then there's the wallet: a more period version of the modern smart phone.  The wallet has always been out of control with what gets stuffed in it. It's the most used, yet abused item of a man's daily carry. An over stuffed wallet will add bulk to your new tailored fit trousers, which makes the "bubble butt" the most common style faux pas made every day.









































The day I retired my bi-fold was the day my butt thanked me for the many years of abuse.  How do you transition? Ditch your current bi/tri-fold and upgrade to a simple card holder and money clip. If you need more than your drivers license, a credit card, and maybe a work ID on you at all times, upgrade to a brief case. I carry the bare minimum: a few bucks, Burt's Bees, keys, and my card holder with no more than my ID. Also, if I'm not wearing a coat or have a bag, I often leave the cell phone behind just because I don't want to deal with its bulk in my pockets.






















Do yourself (and your butt) a solid and downsize your wallet. Hard chairs will be no match for your new streamline back pocket gear. You'll wonder why you didn't do it a long time ago.

After a short phone call with my friend Brian of Dirty Richmond last week, he reminded me that some his favorite photos on my blog were just candid unposed street shots. Thanks for the reminder Brian, I think you'll like the mix of both posed and unposed.

To Code: Toms and Dresses, It's a No, No!


 July's To Code: A Guide to Being A Better Lady (better late than never)


















TOMS eco-friendly (a pair of shoes goes to shoe-less children for every pair bought) have become a popular choice of footwear over the past few years. Across the board, hipsters, kids, doctors, moms, and dads are all rocking a pair of these minimalist shoes. I'm going to make this simple. TOMS are OK in my book, although I can't say you'll catch me in a pair anytime soon. HOWEVER, I've seen far too many ladies of all ages wearing their TOMS with skirts and dresses.

If you want to look like a ballerina in your pointe shoes then by all means, wear your TOMS in every outfit you own. Otherwise, put on a pair of flats or pumps and head out on the town when in skirts or dresses, wear your Classic TOMS with your favorite jeans or shorts and keep it at that. Same rules should apply to men as well.

----------------

UPDATE: Toms Shoes have some wedges and actual ballet flats in their line up since my original post. I've seen them in store and on a few people and will promote ladies to where these options however they please. My original statement stands though on the classic TOMS.

The face that launched Angel's Point of View

Last year on September 1st, I posted this photo below which was my very first street style photo. Some 260 photos later, I still look back to this shot of the beautiful Yoni for inspiration to keep progressing my photography mixing art and fashion. So before the clock rolls over to the 2nd, I wanted to share this with you again. It will be a sad day when I find out Yoni will leave Blacksburg, til then I'll keep snapping her photo.
