Machismo: The Search for Men’s Stylish Winter Boots

I was summoned to search for stylish winter boots that will keep his toes warm. I’m not a fashion expert or anything but it is truly hard to find men’s fashionable boots that really do the job as a winter boot. I did my best anyway and here is what I found.

 If you are looking for style:

My favorite store, Kohl’s, has great stylish men’s boots for great deals even for the picky ones.

UGG ($160-$525 http://www.uggaustralia.com) In my opinion I thought UGG boots were the most obnoxious and lazy footwear known to mankind. Therefore, I never caught the fever to join that trend. But lately, I haven’t minded them and here’s why.

ZENEAUX Made By Man

Okay, this is for the guys! So, you’re having one of those seasons where you’re not sure what to wear for the spring/summer-you want to wear shorts, but still look fashionable. Only issue is, there’s no such thing as fashionable shorts…right? And you’re wrong! Zeneaux Made By Men materializes the ideal combination of stylish and incredibly lavish comfort. Bringing fashion and luxury to a classic pair of shorts and shirt these choices of fabrics and prints just has me lost for words.

Designer, Keenan Zeno was inspired by fashion, the ability to push that already infinite boundaries of creativity. But I’m currently smitten on the black and white Cheetah Print Shirt paralleling a traditional men’s shirt with a chic twist and the black Sequins Shorts, which convey a clean, tailored fit. When worn together, I’m sure they scream cool-meets-couture! With spring being here and summer on the horizon, I also have my eye on the flirty warm-weather Leopard Print Shorts. It matters not whether you’re dressing for work or happy hour, this sultry assortment will prevail all day long!
These items will be available for purchase April 23rd, or by special orders at sales@zeneaux.com

4am: Little Dragon- Crystalfilm

Little Dragon

“Crystalfilm,” one of my favorite Little Dragon songs from their 2011 release—Ritual Union, just received a dreamy set of visuals to match the haunting down-tempo track. Directed by Daniel Wirtberg, the beautiful short-film follows a young farm girl in the Scandinavian countryside who is pursued by a group of rather stylish masked scarecrows.

The girl goes from a curious child with a bad case of nightmares, to young woman who finally embraces the straw people. Are they in her imagination? Are they real? Enjoy the video below and purchase Ritual Union on iTunes and Amazon.

Celebrities Do Fashion- Affordable collections from A-list names

kohls searas jennifer lopez kardashian
Nowadays, every celebrity that we praise as being fashion forward gets the bright idea to start a collection of their own. For some, it will be great, (think Kanye), and for others, it will just be. But what do you think? Is it smart?

The Kardashians recently released their Kardashian Kollection with price points that would seem to rock the boat at budget-friendly Sears. Also, Kohl’s has been on a celebrity spree with the likes of J.Lo, Marc Anthony, and LC (Lauren Conrad) from the Hills with collections. Even with sales on all of the collections mentioned, some of their clothing ranges from $50-75 dollars. The question is, is it worth it? Or are they just capitalizing on their celebrity to bring consumers lackluster garments at steep prices? Quality over quantity should be the name of the game! For those prices, you could have beautifully constructed trousers from Zara, or stylish wallet-friendly trends at H&M. So, are you buying?

Lauren Conrad’s Collection for Kohl’s
