Building your trademark style may be among one of the most underestimated challenges for anyone with dreams of traveling the world, being fabulous, and building a perfect career in the Arts & Entertainment sector. Especially those living out of suitcases and constantly flying to foreign locations. While we’ll forever love stores such as H&M, Topshop, Express and Zara, we should always have handy those key ingredients from our closets that offer smooth style shenanigans, and can readily piece together those million dollar outfits. Through these looks, we create confidence and bless ourselves with originality, a pleasant tune that we should all be singing to.

Shooting location: Paris, France. Saint-Germain des pres.
I conquered today’s style, solemnity and magic using the local French decors + a little exotic noir.
It was a good ole’ Sunday funday, capturing fresh poses before a mellow Monday.
Mesmerized by the fresh Spring grooves and smooth Parisian tunes, I tipped across the cobblestones and posed to my bones in:
Blazer: Custom made, but inspired by Gucci’s SS 2013 Gabardine Dandy Jacket.
Shirt: Hamilton Shirts
Bow Tie: Dolce & Gabbana
Pocket Square: Bru Na Boinne
Shoes: Calvin Klein Collection
Allocated by my routine style measures, I mixed and matched a slew of new treasures.
My Gucci Gabardine Dandy inspired jacket and Bru Na Boinne pocket square shined bright like diamonds.
Though I had my jacket custom made by a humble little bespoke boutique in Paris, you can check out Gucci’s version of it here.
Four years ago, I was booked by Hamilton heiress Kelly Hamilton for an exclusive designers exhibition taking place in, Washington, DC.
Following the gig, Kelly was gracious enough to offer me the button up as a gift.
Shiny shoes by Calvin Klein.
From living life in cold Europe, to tropical life in Los Angeles, to the gritty smog, dirt, and sweating of New York City + my urban roots of Baltimore, MD- my wardrobes signature of dapper distinction has taken me quite a long way.
A real life adventure, this ocean blue suit tells the story of my passion for personal style and it’s progression.
Thoughts on my Gucci blue suit inspired bespoke?
