You only turn 25 once, so you better do the damn thing while in your moment, right? Unlike me, my boo is a little bit less turnt up. My 25th year on Earth was marked by a 5-day Bacchanal festival of raging held in Chicago.  Knowing that my lady is a bit more classic, a bit more…refined I dare say…than me at 25 lead to a completely different type of adventure…  (more…)

Perks of Being a Blogger Boyfriend: Tea Time with Laundry

I’m thinking of making this a reoccurring column here at Left Coast Fashion as the perks of being a blogger’s boyfriend are many…

This past weekend my boo, Honey & Silk, was invited to a beautiful little high tea action at the London Hotel in Hollywood. We had a wedding that day so when the boo asked the inviters if she could bring her boyfriend they were gracious enough to say YES! Not surprisingly, I had a wonderful time. The tea was hosted by Laundry by Shelli Segal and gathered some of LA’s most prominent bloggers (which I am not haha). As you can see from the photos we were treated to quite the spread, and I even enjoyed my favorite macaroons via Bottega Louie.

Dear Cougar: What Goes with Red Jeans, Bro?

Please leave your questions for Dear Cougar in the comment section below, or feel free to email me at cougar@leftcoastfashion.com

DEAR COUGAR: Hey bro, what color shirt should I wear with red jeans? – KOOL-AID LOVER

#

Dear Mr. Kool-Aid

Bro, BRO! You just hit me with an easy one. White, blue, purple, green…basically whatever you want. Wearing red pants is a statement and all focus will really go on them. Whatever you have up top will be secondary. You can literally even wear a red shirt as long as you have a cool jacket or sport coast to break up the monochromatic party.

Keep in mind, we’re going into Fall / Winter, so its a good idea to go with darker colors and heavier fabrics once it cools off a bit. Tweed will never steer you wrong.

Its all good bro. My suggestion is to go red jeans, purple button down and a slick navy striped tie. Check out the video above for an example of what I would do.
