I'm glad someone asked about this! I DIDN'T MEAN TO. What happened was that my regular hairdresser wasn't there to trim my bangs, so this other guy did it instead and THINNED OUT my bangs!!! I was so mad! So now if I tried to push it forward it looks gross and weird. So I have to push it to the side. I'm waiting til it grows out a little so I can re-cut them. Sigh.

i'm waiting for this one: 'how that garment can go horribly wrong and end up looking really trashy.' ;)

For men I would recommend two things - always have things altered to fit and don't be afraid of colour in moderation. A simple tie pin and a fitted sleeve do wonders. Also - this is a lulu outfit? (Couldn't resist.)

hi Lulu! are your tights black? i find it very difficult to match brown/black but this looks great.

They are black! I think it helps that it is not that opaque and the shoes are a dark chocolate brown.
