The Fab Five

Taking note from Miss Couturable and of course Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, I've decided to create a series of 5 things that have intrigued me (which hopefully will also intrigue you) over the past week. These things will be incorporated into The Fab Five which will be featured every Sunday.

  1. Strolling through Barnes & Noble, I made my way over to the Fashion section in which I found the Details Men's Style Manual. The book, a guide on what men can wear with what, definitely piqued my interest. I quickly made my way up to the counter where the manual itself held a somewhat hefty sticker price (at least for a modest size book): $30. Seeing as it was written by Details head-honcho himself Daniel Peres, I had no problem paying. A simple how-to on everything from V-necks to swimming trunks, I recommend every guy own one. Ladies, do your boyfriends a favor and purchase one today. He'll thank you in the long run.

  2. Full-Finger Rings? Sounds fabulous! Rihanna was seen at the BET Awards sporting the Vivienne Westwood creations. Your thoughts?
  3. J. Crew is having their final sale. Think the last 20% off was nice? How about cashmere sweaters for $39.99? Yes, please! Perfect for the Pre-Fall transition. Hit the sale before all the preps get word.

  4. The Prada Fall Collection for shoes & handbags opened on this week. The Nappa A Hobo caught my eye while browsing the site. I would describe the bag as a licorice-graphite colored hobo with ruching that makes it appear to have flower detailing. At $2,120, let's see how long it takes Blair or Serena to trot down 5th Avenue with one.
  5. Vh1's You Outta Know Artist Adele has come out with a quite catchy song, "Chasing Pavements." It's got hints of pop and soul among its addicting lyrics. If you're looking for a motivational song and are looking to "dig deep," I recommend purchasing it on iTunes or listening to it on her Myspace.

I just want to thank everyone for all the comments you've given me on my introduction. I do appreciate all of my readers and hope you will all continue to check back daily. Let's keep those comments rolling!
