I hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday season with friends and family, I sure did! 🙂
I know we are all dealing with odd weather and frigid temperatures across the globe. However, just because it’s winter doesn’t mean your style has to be compromise… on the contrary, THIS is the time to explore new style tribes.
Recently, I was talking to a friend and they reminded my of a story from my teenage years. When I was about 16 years old, my obsession with all things fashion spiked. I was always checking out the new retailers on the scene (i’m going to give away my age here but) at that time, stores that were doing menswear well in the Midwest were stores like Structure, Banana Republic, Gap, Dillard’s etc. These were the stores to help me define my style early on. Since I was in discovery mode, I would come home with a new garment almost every week. Anyone that has younger siblings that are the close in age/size knows your closet is their shopping mall.
I remember coming home from work one night, going to my closet and reaching for my new Gap sweater only to find a mustard stain resting right snack dab in the middle of it… I knew there was only one person who could have done this, my baby brother! Even though we are several years apart my mother would dress us as if we were twins. So, I guess he felt as though, what’s mine, was his… Needless to say, we had a discussion about him keeping out of my closet. I believe that went in one ear and out the other because we had that conversation often but it never really stuck.
Nowadays, my brother has his own style which is very much cool-chic. So I took a couple notes from his book and pulled together today’s look entitled “the Mondre” – an ode to my brother.
I love you baby bro!!!
