Thanks to my cousin in my 20s I started to develop this sickness that I couldn’t stop from spreading…The Prep Flu. I started desiring colored pants, polos and oxfords like I had never had an itch for before. I wanted to summer on the shore. I wanted to play preppy games. I wanted to dress in pastels and go to the horse races!!!
I’ve been slowly trying to make up for my lost childhood of not being a prep by hanging out on boats and buying more J.Crew. This year I turned another corner, put on my bowtie and grabbed my gorgeous girlfriend, and we went to play the ponies in our Sunday’s best… (more…)
Time has passed and many things have changed since I last sat behind the keys of what was once my own “fashion blog.” In the last year I got too busy to keep http://www.leftcoastfashion.com going, with all the events, photos and well, blogging, I had to do I decided that if I wasn’t making a million dollars I would stop doing certain things. So I stopped…and I was too busy to really mind.
Along comes my honey, Stephanie Liu of honeynsilk.com. Now we’ve been together for over a year, and yes, she is definitely a part of the too busy syndrome I had been affected by, but then something interesting started to happen. Slowly I would attend this event with her, and that dinner. This product launch and that collection unveiling. I started being her plus one…for everything!
At first I didn’t think about it much. Nice stay during Coachella weekend…cool. Free shirt here and there…neat. But then the food started happening, and I was like whoa…I could get used to this!
I take her photos (sometimes, not all the time), and I get to tag along, and so I started to think that maybe being the significant other of a serious blogger is almost as cool as being the blogger yourself. I want to create something worth reading. I think a voice has been missing, the one that talks about the other person in the picture. There is a guy generally standing a little off to the side scarfing down a crab cake while taking candid shots of his gorgeous woman doing her thing…and that guy is me.
So, please pardon our dust as I revamp and re-establish my groove. Welcome to The Blogger Boyfriend.
Box seats with Bae at the Mrs. Carter tour? I could get used to that…
