Men's Streetstyle 2015

It's very interesting to see what men are wearing this year.  From the pics I've seen online, there seems to be a gradual change in men's style of dress from what we've been used to.  And it's time... Women change constantly, that's a given, but men take a while to change their looks.

The men's streetstyles  posted are from London, Milan and Toronto and Paris.  Do you like what you're seeing?

Working Together - Dress and Pant Duo

I was looking at the New York Magazine website on the streetstyle link and I see women wearing dresses over pants.  Not only leggings, but regular slacks!  Anything goes... and I like the look of this "anything goes" look. Nothing unecessary is revealed and the women look fashion current.

Summer Dressing

I haven't worn a dress for so long.... I wear blouses with skirts, but I couldn't tell you the last time I've worn a dress.  That has to be corrected this summer.  My daughter noticed an increased amount of ladies at the church we've visited (my son was visiting another church ) for a while wearing skirts and dresses yesterday (which happened to be Fathers Day and also the first day of summer).  I'm going to perceive it as the ladies wanting to dress up for their husbands in honor of Fathers Day.  I said to my daughter that I'm going to make a dress to wear ( I'll try and make that 3 dresses).  A change in a person's life/ routine is nice, and 2015 has been a year of quite a bit of change for me (good changes).

All White Attire

I have a friend I hadn't seen for many years.  I'd wonder where he was and what he was up to.  Well, suddenly, early this year, we reconnected! He's still the same old, fun comedian.  At least one thing has changed about him- he loves to wear all white.  At first I thought it was unusual, but then I found the all white look somewhat appealing.  It's definately an attention getter.  It's clean, and for spring and summer, it's fresh and light with a cooling effect in thought if not physically.  I think I like it.

70's Inspired

I've been watching alot of dvds for some time, and right now I'm into the 60's, 70's and 80's comedies.  One of my favorite is the Mary Tyler Moore Show, a 1970 comedy.....yes, this African Canadian likes Mary Tyler Moore  I didn't appreciate it, obviously, during its time as I was a child.  Now I appreciate the show in my adulthood.

I love the dresses that the lead character wore on the show, including alot of color block dresses in unusual color combinations (well, unusual to us today) which worked.  The 70's inspiration seems to be back today in clothing and furniture (saw an article in a newspaper about 70's inspired furniture being the way to go).  And so here are a few very attractive 70's style clothes for spring 2015.

Bag Fetish

 If I had the closet space, I'd probably have more bags than I currently do.  I'm always hearing of ladies who just have the need to buy and collect shoes, but I never could relate.  Shoes aren't my thing.  Now, ladies who collect bags I can relate to. And here are just a few that I would love to ad to my small collection.  The color block bags are just so attractive....

Enjoy your weekend.

Turning Scarves into Dresses

 I saw an article on scarf dresses last week, so that is what inspired me to look for dresses made from scarves or the fabric for scarves. The dresses are colorful, fluid and delicate. Very pretty. Very spring and summer.
