Experiences inspire great art.
OK, I’m a fan of GQ, Esquire, The Sartorialist, etc. My problem with all of these magazines and blogs are the out of reach prices you find on the clothing they recommend. Yes, it’s epic or awesome or stylish but how many of us can really afford a $250 pair of swim trunks or a $500 dollar pair of jeans?!?!
I’m all about finding similar items for a fraction of the cost. Whether I shop at H&M, Zara, Make Me A Hipster, ahem, I mean Urban Outfitters (shh, don’t tell anyone I said that), or thrift shops, I save money and still manage to rock stuff that’s trending.
Today’s example comes from the The Sartorialist. He recommends Setter trunks from Orlebarbrown.com. These trunks retail at $230! Who the heck want’s to pay $230 for swim trunks?!?! I know I don’t have the wallet for such a luxurious purchase. Well last year I came across a pair of trucks that are similar to Setter trunks (not exactly of course because those are $230 bucks and definitely have a unique look) at H&M. These trunks cost me less than $20 bucks and believe it or not, I received a lot of compliments! Last year I purchased navy blue trunks but this year I may go for the bolder slow for the cone zone orange trunks. We shall see!
Let’s remember that being fashionable doesn’t always have to break the bank.
I am often asked why I’m not in a relationship? I ask, “what’s the rush?” How can anyone go out and say, “today I will find the one!” I mean seriously, how does anyone think that locating the one just takes you going out one night or two nights and looking for that special person.
I’m a hopeless romantic and I won’t allow myself to be rushed into something that is doomed to fail or stuck in a relationship that is comfortable but lacks the passion or with someone that I look at and think, well they’re not so bad. Really? Who really wants that?
I want passion in every kiss, magic in every touch and when I look into her eyes, I want to see my future with her in it. I want to never allow myself to even consider spending a day without her in my life; not necessarily being together 24/7 but simply knowing that she is in my life.
I’d rather take my time and find the one rather than just someone.
I love GQ and am inspired by their articles and photography but they cater to a rich crowd. The devices that are reviewed are beyond reasonably priced and the clothes are too. As you continue to follow my blog, I’ll be discussing different items that are affordable and still great & fashionable!
With fall being here, time to focus on fall colors! Stay tuned for new images!!!
