[wear] Women’s Spring/Summer Fashion – The “I Love Dresses” Edition

So, Matt’s recent manifesto on acceptable spring and summer clothing items for dudes got me thinking: what do I want to find myself clothed in as the weather turns awesome? There are, of course, lots of trends for gals to be excited about this spring and summer. But for me, they pale in comparison to the one item of clothing I can’t seem to get enough of lately – dresses. Here are five reasons why I love them, some that I’m coveting, and places to find ones of your own.

[wear] Men’s Spring/Summer Essentials

As I look through my closet preparing for Spring 2010, I find myself carefully evaluating my clothes from previous summers with almost complete regret. Aside from my Lacoste polos, which are timeless, I find summer clothing so casual it’s sad – a collection of overly pocketed shorts from mall stores like American something and that place next to Aber-whatever.

[wear] Swimwear for Men: A Guide

Men, it’s getting to be that time again: swimsuit season. Naturally, this doesn’t instill the kind of fear that it does in women, but it still requires some planning on your part. Before you go out and buy the first pair of trunks you can find with some beer logo on it, consider this: it’s just as important for you to find something that complements you and your style as it is for women.

[shop] Where to Buy Shoes in Wichita

Confession: I have big feet. There, I said it. Being the owner of boat-sized feet means that while most women can show up at Dillards and pick out an adorable pair of dainty, pointy-toed stilettos, I am stuck looking at sensible pumps that are way more Bea Arthur than Rue McClanahan. Plus any shoe that looks cute in a size 6 often looks like it was made for a clown in a size 11.
