This blog is generally about womens’ clothing, but I have been thinking about mens’ clothing a lot lately. I posted a photo on instagram on Sunday after the first mens’ session I have had in a long time – I felt energized and excited afterwards because it gave me a different perspective. I feel like I’ve been in a funk with womens’ clothes, so it was a nice change of pace and a new reference point for me to be inspired by and work from. It also didn’t hurt that this particular client had a pretty solid wardrobe to start off with (J Brand jeans, Burberry trench anyone??).
A lot of women would be hesitant to let their husband/boyfriend hire a wardrobe consultant because they think that that is their job as the wife or girlfriend (I’ve heard this excuse about a billion times now) – but the bottom line is that an outsider can bring in a level of creativity to the process that would not be there with someone that knows you so well. A wife or girlfriend will pick things within their comfort zone – not pushing the boundaries. The boundaries are meant to be pushed!
I’ve been toying with the idea of starting a mens’ blog for a WHILE now and will hopefully get my figurative sh*t together and finally launch it in the Spring. It has become apparent to me that guys trust a woman’s instinct, and I think there is a void of women voicing their opinion on what men should wear. So hopefully this idea will pick up some momentum for me and I will make it happen!
