Teaming of with Goodwill Industries

A little over a month ago, I was approached by Goodwill Industries of the Valleys to partner up on their blog. I didn't think twice and am excited to give back to such an amazing organization who does so much for our community. Goodwill Industries of the Valleys serves the largest area in the state of Virginia and I believe is one of the largest Goodwill organizations in the country. To read the full first post, visit the blog here.

To Code: Why it was started

To Code: A Guide to Being A Better Gentleman 


I've had a few e-mails from readers asking why I started To Code. Well, after about a few months of starting the blog I wanted to add fashion advice to my content. Getting original photos for this wasn't happening, so I use this little stick man to have some kind of image along with the post.  The sketches stuck!

to code: fashion advice for men

The next question is, why is my advice geared towards men? The answer is simple, a large portion of my readers are female, not to mention many of my photos are of womens street style. Writing To Code: I feel is a way to give the guys their own little place on Angel's Point of View. Also, I've had a few female readers actually tell me they love reading them because they can suggest my advice to their boyfriends or husbands.

The last question is why is it called To Code? Well, you get your house inspected to make sure it's up "To Code" right? I think you should live your life to some sort of Code of standards as well, thus To Code was born.

Street Style... " Tunic Talk," Charleston

charleston fashion, charleston street style, southern womens style














































I love tunics. I love them as dresses, I love them as tops, I love them when they are not short nor long and ladies wear them with tights. I also love them as cover ups at the beach or pool. For something that isn't too curve revealing, it is one of my favorite garments on a woman, so feminine and so damn sexy. Buy a few tunics ladies, the men in your life will thank you.

Tim is the owner of 319 Men on King Street downtown Charleston, SC.  He and his sharply dressed staff  enjoy the foot traffic on King Street at the doorway of 319. I actually bought some black silk braces (suspenders) from his shop when I still lived in Charleston.

To Code: USA - All The Way

To Code: A Guide to Being A Better Gentleman 


Did you know I actually draw each sketch for the To Code series? I draw each one with paper and pencil then scan it into the computer to post. It's pretty fun.

Aside of that, I hope you all enjoyed your Independence Day. I thought it was fitting to give you a little advice while celebrating our fine country is still fresh in your minds.

Whenever possible, buy goods made in the US of A. Our country is in the middle of a resurgence of local consumerism and products of every kind made here in the US. It's the belief in quality versus quantity that is leading the way, and more Americans are taking a leap in rebuilding American manufactured goods. 





























I'm not saying you need to go out and only buy US produced items from here on out, it's just good practice. I try my best to buy US goods, local food, and so on. The truth of the matter is American made products almost always cost more! Yes, unless you're Oprah rich, you may get sticker shocked very quickly as well as a dwindling bank account if you only buy things made in our country. Many companies are only manned by 2 or so people, with some of the larger operations capping out at 20. What takes a large scale manufacturer 20 minutes to make takes these hard working makers 6 hours, and these folks deserve a fair wage, don't you think? Hence, the higher cost.

Aside of the higher premium, American made products are back. Although some of the more desirable items like clothing, cars, and lets say furniture can cost three times what imports would, you can find American made products at big box stores, farmers markets, and even thrift stores within more manageable rates. Just check the label and walk off whistling a few bars of ' I'm proud to be an American." You're in a small way helping out nation get back on its feet to a pretty high level of awesomeness.

Southern Street Style Tour Video on Vimeo

I got a few messages that the You Tube video wasn't available on mobile devices. It's now available to view on VIMEO, hopefully this fixes those wanting to watch it on your tablets or phones.

Announcing - A Southern Street Style Tour

Part of the obsession as a street style photographer/Blogger is creating amazing images with willing strangers in different cities throughout the South. What you don't see on the blog is the other part of the adventure, the stories of each city from people living it, the pride each one has, and their desires to share it to a visiting stranger. It's the friendships that have been created from short interactions of complete spontaneity that has me in love with these greats cities below the Mason Dixon Line. With that I announce the Southern Street Style Tour 2012...



It's only fitting that I start on my home turf (NRV/Roanoke area). Look for my first episode from the tour late July. You can follow my video's or on my YouTube Channel for videos from each city visit.
