I can’t say I’ve ever really been a fan of the murse. I’ve yet to set my eyes on a purse for a man where function meets fashion. Spring/summer lines presented at Paris Fashion Week didn’t help my disapproval for the man purse either, with oversized clutches seen in camo by Valentino amongst others. If I’m going to rock a murse it needs to be able to hold more than my car keys, wallet and phone – which brings me to Berluti,

First, Justin Timberlake brought sexy back. Now, he’s tackling…soul?

After a 6-year hiatus, JT released a new single Sunday night, one which can only be described as the godchild of soul-R&B and swag. Entitled “Suit & Tie,” the song marks his re-entrance into the entertainment industry and presents an interesting preview into Timberlake’s future in music. The song’s a bump-and-grind type opening lulls listeners into the almost, dare I say it, groovy verse that follows, one which embodies the emotion of a sassy Aretha Franklin.

A view from behind the beads at the second styleboston anniversary event at the World Trade Center Boston.

Check out this unreleased clip from Backstory with Andre Dubus goofing around on set with Saint Aire’s Christy Cashman. Watch the full segment on the styleboston website here!

It’s not something you’ve never seen before, but there’s something new here that may tickle your fancy. Color and lines are two elements that have redefined the bomber and motorcycle jacket for spring 2013. From Paul Smith and Joseph Abuud to Balmain, designers in Paris for men’s fashion week presented their models strutting down the runway in delightfully colored, slim fitting jackets that were nothing less than stunning.

Booties have already kicked their way into spring 2013 collections and are slated to pack a statement punch when the season strikes. This booty is versatility to the max. With reasonably unique construction and material that can accent just about any daytime spring look, I can see it worn flawlessly with sundresses, shorts, skinnies. They can be dressed up, dressed down in the city, or rocked by the water in a beach town. The mash up of snakeskin, linen and wood create perfect balance between rock star and beach bum. Cash or check please! I’m BUYing!

Shipping up to Boston? The Dropkick Murphy’s are! The Quincy-born shamrock-n-roll band is coming back to home tonight for a free concert to promote their latest album “Signed and Sealed in Blood” which drops, you guessed it, today.

I regretfully write this as I am thoroughly saddened that I have to. Something has crept into our society that could have tragic consequences. I am speaking of the unforgivable introduction of ‘meggings’ into street style or any style for that matter.

Never heard of that term? Break it down— Man. Leggings.

Meggings have been getting press recently because of celebs such as Justin Bieber, Lenny Kravitz, and Russell Brand have been spotted in these things. But I, and I would like to think the fashion industry, generally don’t really look to The Brand and The Biebs as trend inspiration. So we move on. Yes? No.

Can I get some water please, my throat is a little parched

Versace’s White Lace Layered Dress is pure elegance.  The opposing black and white pallet makes for a beautiful contrast that exudes nothing less than class. I’m head over heels in love with the irregular cut of the neckline here and have yet to see anything done like this before.

This is the happiest, most danceable, synthesizer-driven, electronic pop song to round out the New Year, and I’m in love with it. The production of this song is insanely genius.
