movie still: 12 Angry Men
To say that I have been M.I.A is a huge understatement but I am back and there is no way that I am leaving without notice again. Its wet, damp, and rainy...seattles best and most predictable weather. Its these days when I think about my senior year of highschool when everyone was rushing around applying to college and I was kicking back because of the flawed/optimistic idea that I would take a year off from college, figure out who I am and then within a year start college as a new man with everything figured out. Big surprise!: I was WRONG. Truth is a year is not enough time to figure out who you are especially when your trying to keep up with rent, car payments, work and still look good. A year comes to seem like the timespand of a minute. Now if you'll excuse me I really must stop typing and get back to '12 angry men' if you haven't seen this movie yet I insist you see it, one word: remarkable.

I'm sitting legs crossed at a peruvian style desk drinking seattles Best coffee. Work wont be calling me for another hour or so which gives me time to indulge in small bites of chocolate and style.Recently I came across The basics. Often I shun people who continuously go back to the basics because it is unoriginal, safe, and often a lack of creativity but Olivier Borde has surprised me with his fresh out of water basics.

Number 9 immediately caught my attention and although I noticed how uncomfotable he looked first, my eyes could not depart from the polka dot pockets and the neon pink shirt. Plain but captivating and casual but almost clown-like.

The half overalls in number 13 couldnt have been more brilliant and although the hat looks like it was knitted by a mans grandmother it couldnt have been more perfect for this look

But of all the pictures, Number 18 was the one that made me smile effotlessly. Simple and beautiful, a man stands with confidence in a navy blue casual suit and a pink dress shirt. The sandals were what caught me off guard becuase they really bring this look to a more street/casual/independent look.
