William B + Friends Styling Contest – Vote for Me!

Hello Everyone! I know it’s been a hot minute, but I hope you are well!

I attended the grand opening of William B + Friends at Westfield Century City and I entered a styling contest at their store where I had to create a head to toe look.  I scoured the entire store which has a lot of fun, chic, affordable clothing for women and I created this colorful ensemble which was exciting to put together!

William B + Friends fall look I created. Please like this exact photo on their Facebook fan page!

If my photo gets the most likes on Facebook I will win an iPad.  Please go to their FB page and like the photo as I would love to win this as an early Xmas gift!  What I also like about this look is that it can be worn for your 9 to 5 and then for a night out take off the blazer and you have a fab lace top you can rock the night away in!

I put a lot of thought into the outfit and for some reason I feel patriotic in it…

Thank you in advance!!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month – The Men in Pink

The Men in Pink

Breast Cancer Awareness month is in full swing, and there are so many things for women to wear to support the cause.  But wait, what about men?  They want to show their support as well and maybe a bracelet or keychain isn’t enough.  And since I love color on men too, why not wear it?  Well, I am here to show men affordable and easy ways to incorporate sprinkles of pink into your wardrobe to support the cause with confidence!

The Man in the Hot Pink Suit wearing Moods of Norway

Before I begin, I came up with the idea to do this because The Man in the Hot Pink Suit wears his Moods of Norway 3-piece ensemble boldly all over town to support breast cancer awareness and inject some colorful cool into the men’s fashion scene.  Maybe you don’t want to go this far and wear all pink, but we can start with baby steps.  So what’s in it for you? 

Are You Ready For Some Football?

Josh wearing the Nike Dedicated t-shirt

If you watch football, you see pink everywhere.  From the helmets to towels to cleats, you can’t miss it.  But what do you wear off the field?  Even if you don’t play football and you just like to be in shape, bike etc., you can wear this Nike Dedicated shirt from Sport Chalet.  The pink bar under the word is available for you to write in who you are dedicating the fight of breast cancer to, for that personalized touch.  Made of dri-fit cotton, you can work up a sweat and keep cool while fighting the fight! $28 http://www.sportchalet.com.

Spruce up your sneakers with pink shoelaces for BCA month!

Another touch of pink can be pulling out your current shoelaces from your sneakers and replacing them with pink ones!  You can buy these at any sports store, such as Sports Authority for $2.49.

Taking Care of Business

Rick wearing a Thomas Pink tie & cufflinks

It’s great to see many of the working class men wearing dress pink shirts this month.  Another way to accessorize your business look with pink is by wearing a Thomas Pink tie and matching cufflinks! One of the best places to purchase pink items for men, the tie pictured above is silk woven from England and the cufflinks are made from leftover pieces of the tie.  The tie is $115 and the cufflinks are $50.  Thomas Pink, Westfield Century City, 10250 Santa Monica Blvd., 310- 843-0014.

Turnbull & Asher pink striped pocket square from Bloomingdales

To add another level of sharpness to the suited and booted man, try adding a pocket square. I found this Turnbull & Asher one at The Men’s Store in Bloomingdales, which adds a bonus touch of class! $30. Bloomingdales -The Men’s Store, Westfield Century City, 10250 Santa Monica Blvd, 310-277-2100

Pep in Your Prep

A surprise find that would I love for men to be seen with is this pink 15-inch laptop case from Bric’s.  With a soft, microsuede type feel, this accessory can also hold your iPad, cell phone, notepad, etc. $60. Bric’s, Westfield Century City, 10250 Santa Monica Blvd., 310-551-1015

Alex & Louis pink bowtie and suspenders

If you’re more of a bowtie guy, Alex & Louis has a nice selection, including this pink plaid one I found.  They also have pink suspenders as well, which I think would be a unique touch to a preppy look! Bowtie, $60 Suspenders $45. Alex & Louis, Westfield Century City, 10250 Santa Monica Blvd., 310-710-8780

Maybe you want to show pink underneath your clothes, so why not wear these pink Turnbull & Asher socks if you dare?  These lightweight socks add some flair and could be all you need to “pinkefy” your look! $35. Bloomingdales -The Men’s Store, Westfield Century City, 10250 Santa Monica Blvd, 310-277-2100

Seeing Pink

Artez wearing pink lens Ray-Ban aviators

It’s always sunny somewhere, and men should be prepared with sunglasses.  Why not wear these sharp, Ray-Ban aviators with a light pink lens for BCA month?  It gives you that Mr. Cool look without overdoing it. $209. Sunglass Hut @ Macys, Westfield Century City, 10250 Santa Monica Blvd., 310-556-1611

H&m pink v-neck

Another option is a simple, pink v-neck.  H&M has them in stock right now, and you can dress it up with a blazer, sweater jacket, or just pair it up with jeans.  At $5.95 you could buy one of these and some other colors! H&M, www.hm.com/us

Beauty Expert Stacy Cox and Stacy Gardner, The Style Goddess

Well, I hope you have been inspired to now go out there and get your pink on and support breast cancer awareness month with style and a pop of color!  Thanks to my models, Cougar Hjelmeseth, Joshua Vera, Rick Lindland, Artez Bailey and a special thanks to the fab beauty expert and my on-site partner in crime at KTLA Stacy Cox!

Event Tips G-I

Excited to be back again to share more tips with you on planning a successful event!  Since I have launched this series, I’ve witnessed things at events where I could definitely share some of the tips I have mentioned thus far, and I’m glad that my readers are enjoying what I have to say!  So, what tips do I have for G-I?

My goody bag from the Night of Beauty event – It was definitely a GREAT bag filled with good things!

  1. Goody Bags: Goody bags are a great bonus to any event and something that many attendees look forward to.  One thing you should make sure of is that there are GOOD or even GREAT things in that bag, especially if I’m paying to be at your event.  Putting some coupons, brochures, or flyers in a bag IS NOT a goody bag, it’s an informational kit.  Product samples, promotional products, complimentary passes, food and even drinks makes a fab goody bag.

    All Hands on Deck – everybody helps out!

  2. Hands on Deck:  When producing large events, everybody in the office should help with something. Whether you’re running the show or not, we all have to get our hands dirty sometimes and do some schlepping.  Nobody should fell like they are “too above this” to not assist.  One thing I pride myself on is helping out with anything from cleaning tables to moving boxes.  Heard of the term “All hands on deck?”  That means yours too.

    Winning an iPad is always a crowd pleaser!

  3. Incentives: There are different goals and benchmarks to achieve when planning an event, and sometimes incentivizing the task allows for quicker completion and more excitement!  If there is a tedious task, the pot is always sweeter when there is an offer mixed in such as a half day off, free lunch, or gift card.  However you want to incentivize it, be my guest!  Also, attendees love raffles, door prizes and anything they can win!

Enjoy the tips for this week and feel free to share your own tips!
