Well….

So plans get changed. Meaning: I was going to post about an awesome male fashion statement I saw in an unlikely place (yes, Disney channel… Who would have thought?). But sadly, even though I’ve already admitted to you that I sometimes watch the Disney Channel  (which is a bit embarrassing in itself), I could not find a picture.

Oh well.

However, I found something better while furiously Google Image searching for the picture I sought. I actually stumbled upon a very cool fashion photoshoot from a very cool blog I’d never heard of. Plus, since it’s Scrooge Saturday I don’t have to correlate this post back to Christmas at all! It would be a difficult task, trust me, being that said photoshoot involves cowboy hats (not something I usually like) and skulls. Don’t worry, I promise it’s not scary. Anyways, I’m going to put the link to the full photoshoot after I share my favorite photo with you.

(This shoot is apparently from Zoo Magazine which I’ve never heard of.)

Isn’t that cool? To me it seems like a mix between a viking, a cowboy, and a Burberry model. Brilliant!

Okay, as promised, here is the link: http://thefashionisto.com/charlie-france-by-dancian-for-zoo-magazine/

Oh, and, because I feel like I should be generous, here is a non-Christmas themed song of the day:

I felt like it went with the whole theme of the post. Sort of. Plus, it’s an undeniably catchy classic. I don’t even fancy country, but I love Johnny Cash.

Starting Things Off With A (Big) Bang!

I blame it on my uber fashionable big brother : I have an obsession with men’s clothing. Well dressed men have to be one of my favorite things in the world. That being said, I noticed right away that each character on my favorite television show of all time, The Big Bang Theory, had their own signature style. I love that Mary T. Quigley took the time to give everyone their own style voice.

So, it is no surprise that I’m obsessed with Howard Wolowitz’s quirky personal fashion. He combines a lot of things I am not normally fond of: turtlenecks, way too tight men’s pants, and skate shoes. Somehow, though, when Wolowitz’s brings the aforementioned items together with amazing belt buckles, great color schemes, his signature bowl cut, and, of course, that ‘creepy candy coating’ charm, I’m hooked.

Here are a few of my favorite Wolowitz’s looks. I hope you enjoy:

I love the boots in this one! Plus, who else would pair that blazer with those almost neon blue skinny pants?

“I can’t believe you bought a red cowboy hat!” – Leonard

“Hello, I’m wearing a red turtleneck!” – Howard

Seriously, is that sweater velvet, because I honestly cannot think of another soul that could pull that off?!

I couldn’t do this post without showing a little Gothowitz! Those pants are sick!

In honor of ‘The Wolowitz,’ which is now apparently the name for this style, I threw together a look.

However, I tried to use all designer items to challenge myself.

(Maybe this is if Bernadette bought Howard’s clothes, after all she wants her baby to ‘have pretty things.’)

Also, I did tone down the color. Honestly, I think this Wolowitz is more ‘any man’ friendly, but if you can pull of the real deal: go for it! Also, I would not be doing Wolowitz any justice if I didn’t put this out there: thinkgeek.com carries the most amazing Star Wars belt buckles.

Last, but not least, this would not be a truly ‘me’ post if i didn’t leave you with a playlist. So here it goes:
