|Hermes Crocodile T-Shirt (Spring/Summer 2013) that retails for $91,500|
Hermes has been in the center of attention lately for its upmost ridiculous t-shirt retail price. This crocodile t-shirt above retails for $91,500. No, I did not make a typo. If you were to buy this t-shirt (I wonder who would), you would be paying around $8,000 simply in taxes. Seriously? This could pay for a good college education, a car, or a moderate home. In the South I could purchase a good luxurious home.
Whoever were to buy this item I'd believe it would be only for the sole purpose of showing off how much money they have. You know I'm a freak when it comes to designer clothes, but this t-shirt in particular I don't know. I recently came across a Burberry crocodile trenchcoat that retailed around this particular Hermes price tag. I know Hermes is well known for its luxurious couture craftsmanships, such as its Birkin Bags which begin at a retail price of $10,000 and above, but sometimes luxury can exceed its standard limits.
In general, if I even had thousands of dollars, I would never agree upon purchasing this t-shirt. There are so many more things one would be able to do with this amount. I love Hermes though. Who wouldn't?
Would you buy this t-shirt if you had all the money in the world?

|Balmain Slim Biker Jacket (here)|
Spring may be here, but you have to agree that it still feels like a wintery month even though trees are beginning to bloom again. Their is always one particular outerwear item that will never fail to make the greatest impression of your outfit no matter what season you're in. That would be the famous biker jacket.
This jacket never disappoints me when it's chilly during the spring or summer time (it can get kind of cold where I'm living). I don't know what it is, but there is always something special about these jackets. I guess it may have to be with their design perspective - young, versatile, and masculine.
As I always say, you don't have to spend thousands of dollars for one particular jacket. You know what you pay for is what you get for. This may be one particular item it may be worth investing in besides a great pair of shoes. After all, you have to agree a biker jacket will always be one of your best friends no matter what season or formality.
What brand biker jacket are you fond of?

It has been no secret how big of a fan I’ve been for Raf Simons. His position as new creative director for Christian Dior brought him more prestige than what he already was when at Jil Sander. Menswear has been no difference for this designer. Everything he designs is meant to be a trend setter for the men seeking to look “fashionable.” It is only for him where I can state his collections are truly on the fashion spot for men. They never fall in the side where something can look sort of bizarre for a man. You know what I mean.
For spring, well renowned menswear brand, Fred Perry took the time to include a collaboration collection with Raf Simons. If you have not seen the collection then you must go see it. I guarantee there will be something for you to get your hands on. This is what I love about Simons. I don’t know how he does it, but he always manages to make a colorful patterned sweater or a cheetah print shirt appear so masculine. The three looks above are just some of the clothes I truly like. I honestly want to get the third look from the right (blue-green knitted jacquard shirt). It’s a must have for spring.
Do you like this collection of Raf Simons x Fred Perry?

|Prada Wing-Tip and Kiltie Shoe Styles. What else do you want with these shoes?|
For men, purchasing a great pair of shoes is equally as important as choosing the perfect suit (more about it soon). I always say, if you're not so much into suits, then you better be into shoes if you want to look stylish. There are people who will practically look at me like I'm a crazy bitch for purchasing such expensive shoes. The truth is, what you pay for it is what you get for it.
When buying shoes, don't purchase them at first sight. Think about it. What can I style these shoes with? Will they look good with shorts, pants, a t-shirt? Especially when you're about to make a very huge purchase, such as these Prada shoes, which retail around $1,000.
I know, the price may be superbly high for the majority of us. But wait, don't forget the semi-annual sales that occur every once in a while. This is the time to attack and get your hands on one of these beauties. There are so many sites that offer great styles of shoes to wear - Aldo, Zara, Cole Haan - at reasonable prices.
When I buy shoes, there is one key thought I always bring to mind - If it looks great with a t-shirt, then it must look perfect with anything else. For example, the two Prada shoes above, all you need is a pair of jeans, white t-shirt, and a biker jacket. That's all it requires to be the most stylish guy in town; simple and no stress. Next time take a look at some of the street style outfits photographers shoot. What makes those guys stand out in a t-shirt? Simple, the shoes.
Oh, and by the way, Wing-Tips and Kilties are major this season in menswear. A little touch of color in the soles can add a little magic to your outfit. Casual or formal, you decide.
March 14 = 3.14 = Pi Day, named after the mathematical constant which is the ratio of a Euclidean circle’s circumference to its diameter. Now known to nerds everywhere as “π Day”, March 13 is an excuse to flaunt our nerdness, and several must-do things to celebrate our festival.
1. Memorize Pi: Try to memorize as many digits of Pi as you can. Can you break Chao Lu’s pi memory record of 67,890 digits over 24 hours in 2005, or even Akira Haraguchi’s 83,431 decimal places? Check out and challenge pi record-holders at Pi World.
2 Make Pie: Make some irrational pie to commemorate the “irrational” number—Pi. Aloo pie, apple pie, meat pie, banana cream pie, banoffee pie, bean pie and Amish sauerkraut surprise custard pie are all those you can choose. Add πon the surface or even make them into π.
3 Be A Real Nerd: Dress to be a nerd with a pair of Ozeal nerd glasses. These glasses will help you to transform yourself from a regular guy or girl to a hot nerd. And even people who don’t need glasses are buying up the frames. Join the nerdy band and stop being unnoticed.
The black rim nerd glasses have taken the world by storm; teens, fashionistas as well as celebrities in general seem to find extremely fun to adopt this weird style. Turn your ordinary nerd look into one to remember, Ozeal rounded up 3 ways to dress for you.The black rim nerd glasses have taken the world by storm; teens, fashionistas as well as celebrities in general seem to find extremely fun to adopt this weird style.

- If you are a fun of plaid shirts which always classic and cute with lower cost, try to combo them with casual pants and a pair of white board shoe; you make yourself a typical nerd.
- If you want to get a cool and casual look, you can wear a leisure suit coat and pair of dark brown hiking boots. Layer with other pieces like scarf and metal necklace chain, a real smart and stylish nerdy look can be made.
- If you want to look mature and gentle with black rim nerd glasses, Tinie Tempah in a Dolce & Gabbana Martini Suit give you the cues to make it perfect. Nerd glasses and suit can be a surprising match.
Guys, stop being boring with your regular looks and start looking nerdy! Fake the nerdy interests even though you're not into computers or math. Use your pieces to make an impression.(source:Vintageoo)
After 2009, Pi Day is known all over the world. And more and more people take party to celebrate it, such as eating pie and discussing the significance of Pi, on the 14th March. Today, let me show you some interesting activities on the internet to celebrate pi day.

Wearing black can sometimes appear boring. I always say add a little pop of color and texture and your set to be the star of the night. It is always necessary to have fun when dealing with a little black dress. After all, this is what actually makes your black number stand out in front of the others. Don't stress about the dress you should choose - all attention should be focused on gathering the perfect accessories.
Shoes could be another key factor you should think about. I don't know about you, but those red python Alexander Wang sandals are sure ultra sexy. There was something that caught my attention when I saw them online. A chic black dress came to my mind immediately. These shoes are the center of attraction with texture happening everywhere - python and lizard injected with the most rich color. These are the type of shoes you could pair with a jersey dress (above), leather pants, skirts, etc. There are so many options to be creative with them - retro, sexy, sophisticated. The only questions is if you would be willing to pay $625 for these beauties? Would you?

Hello Fashion Bugs! As promised, this one is for the guys! I am trying to feature more products and giveaways for my male followers as well as to help my girls find new amazing products for the men in their life! What better way to start this out then with a beautiful tie from Puccini's Spring/Summer 2013 collection!!
The fact is, Men's fashion and style does not have to be expensive and that can witnessed by Puccini's latest striped tie collection. A perfect blend of traditional Repp-Stripe design, one that is typically associated with conservative regimental ties, and bold/bright colors, this assortment of ties will infuse some fresh air into any man's wardrobe. Featuring a modern width of 3.25 inches, this collection is perfect for any modern cut suit featuring narrow to medium width lapels. Best of all is the amazing price on these pieces! Bow's and Tie's offer this collection for just $9.90 a piece! Now, if this is not proof that a stylish business wardrobe is not just for the top 1%, then I don't know what is!!
Bows 'N Ties is very excited to feature Puccini's New Repp-Stripe Collection, which is available in 9 gorgeous colors, perfect for Spring and Summer. The color's included are:
and of course, last but certainly not least, the one I received:
Each of these ties are made from a unique micro-fiber that looks and feels identical to silk but is more wrinkle and stain resistant. Each tie features two unique colors paired with a contemporary striped design. I was extremely impressed when I received this tie. The quality is amazing! I have bought ties for different men in my life, My dad, son, husband etc... and I have paid as much as $80 for a tie and the quality was not any better, if as good, than this tie by Puccini.
As you can see here from my picture, all the seams and stitching is perfect! The way it feels, looks, the way it perfectly lays when on....It's just perfect and the price is absolutely insane! You can't find a tie with a price tag as cheap as this one at Walmart and you certainly will never find this kind of quality and craftsmanship their! I expected it to be a nice tie and worth the $10 but I honestly didn't expect to see this kind of quality and beauty. Just picture your man with this tie on, a long sleeve button up crisp white shirt and a pair of khaki or navy blue pants.....oh girl, you know he would be looking good!! I also love the Burgundy and navy blue striped tie, as shown above, that too would look so good with a white shirt and khaki or navy blue pants! Whether your man will admit it or not, they like to dress up and look good too and with these kind of prices....they can afford to!
Bow's 'N Tie's offer a wide assortment of Necktie's, Bow Tie's, Cuff links and Handkerchiefs! They carry over a thousand different neck tie and bow tie styles and colors and I found so many amazing colors, patterns, and styles I am going to buy for my men....my daddy and son are going to be in tie heaven! both of them love dressing up and if they don't have somewhere to go....they will find somewhere to go so they can show off all that handsomeness...lol.. They also carry special sized ties for Big and Tall as well as kids! However, Bows 'N Ties is so much more than just a simple Tie shop. Beside a large assortment of ties, you will find instructions on tying neckties, how to tie a Bow Tie, and even how to fold a handkerchief.
