Fellow BLERDS and NERDS alike! I know that today was not the best of days… *Drumpf! cough, cough! * But allow me to assist you in finding the silver lining! When I was at my lowest point, yes, after reading through countless ignorant timeline rants that is “social media,” I found SALVATION! In what you ask? The force… my friends. No. Not that force! LoL THE VOLTRON FORCE!!! Season 2 is up and running! So fire up your Netflix account, turn off CNN and free your mind! SHALAWAM!
If the words “BEAST KING GOLION” don’t mean anything to you…then you have NO IDEA what this hat is all about. Trust me, these words are for TRUE Voltron fans only. Now as for the fit, hey man, keep it simple. It was a little cool out there that night and the event was outside. Yes, I’m speaking in the past tense, because this was last night. I told you I’ve been a bit out of it, what with the food poisoning and all, but anyway, a perfect night for a light denim, like this one. And my Chukkas kept me toes nice and toasty! The key is SIMPLICITY. Like all art you want a good Focal Point. My lid is the FP of this masterpiece. Always keep the objective, which is your anchor, in mind. It’s all about the Heroes this week! Oh and SIDE NOTE: When sporting a lot of denim, be sure to mismatch the top & bottom. So choose either a dark top & light bottom or vice versa. Or else risk looking like a JC Penney’s model from the 90s. LoL Alright, that’s it! “LIVE ABOVE IT!”
Today I decided to break out some old friends! My Radii boots! I love these boots, but I’m just not a fan of the clicking noise they make when walking. Sounds like a chic wearing heels. So I don’t wear them often, but today I’m going to be in dirty auto shops while I search for a new wheel to replace my damaged one from the aftermath of the recent ice storms. It’s also raining, so I don’t have to worry about getting these bad boys dirty. They’re comfortable, stylish, & durable. You can’t beat that. Also, I rarely rock hats except for when it rains, but I bought 2 hats yesterday that I plan to use for more than rain. As I become more comfortable in my Personal Style I’m starting to venture out. The 2 hats make a distinctive statement about who I am. I love comics, but as far as comics & clothing go, I’ve never been a fan, but I’m starting to find cool ways to merge them. Generally I find comics inspired clothing to be too daunting. I’m more low key, but the hats I bought work for 2 reasons: 1. They FIT well and 2. They don’t overwhelm. The Voltron head actually reminds me of the Chicago Bulls logo. Maybe that’s why it works so well? My Spring/Summer Style plans to be SIMPLE. So my attention will fall on the accents or details. A nice lid, like this one, or my shoes…or a nice Rosary like these red ones I picked up from the store today and added to this gallery. And finally I bought new draws! LoL Men, you should replace your undergarments every Spring. Just trust me on this one. I’m trying Haynes’ new tagless, moisture resistant product. Here’s to Simplicity & good hygiene! . “LIVE ABOVE IT!”

Sooo…found these at The Great Escape on Charlotte Ave. last night!
That’s RIGHT! Voltron & Astro Boy! 2 Comic/Anime staples in history! Just the touch my loft needed! Found Jason, the Red Ranger with the White Ranger vest, but I’m balling on a budget so I put it on hold! LoL Yes sir…a good day indeed!
