I don’t know about you, but there’s nothing worse than standing in front of your closet trying to figure out what to wear; yes, even men have those days. I like to look into my closet and build my outfit and in order to build my outfit I need a foundation. This is where timeless pieces come into play. The pieces that will always go with any trend and you can wear over and over again a million different ways.

Jason Bateman’s GQ Look for Less

March 26, 2013 by  
Filed under Boys on the Side

Is it me or does Jason Bateman just keep getting better and better with age?  The man is hilarious, witty and his GQ cover shows he’s got a little swag in him too.  I know he was probably styled but he wears it well and just looking at him makes me giggle.  Yes I have a crush on JasonBateman!  Maybe it’s his dimples, maybe it’s sarcasm or that little smirk of a smile, but anything that Jason Bateman is in is alright by me!  The actual point of this post really wasn’t to go on and on about how much I love Jason Bateman, but rather to highlight his perfectly styled outfit on the cover of GQ.  I recreated his look for less (I included the hat just in case you want to go all out).  It’s a great outfit for spring and maybe even a stylish easter outfit for those boys out there who don’t like the whole suit and tie thing.

Blazer – $39 at Urbanoutfitters.com | Gingham Shirt – $40 at Bananarepublic.com | Graphic Sweater – $22.50 at Yesstyle.com | Canvas Slip On – $52 at Yesstyle.com | Handkerchief – $17 at Zara.com | Hat – $34 at Quiksilver.com

Chris Pine: Darkly Dreaming Trekster

May 17, 2009 by  
Filed under Celebrity Side Dish

As Star Trek ticket sales continue to smash box office records and Chris Pine’s fame warps to another galaxy,  you can’t help but wonder what’s next for America’s hottest new hottie (The GQ spread alone will keep the pre-pubescent girls giggling all summer long).  Rumor has it that comic book hero Green Lantern is on the horizon, which will no doubt prove to be a mistake of “Daredevil” proportion.   Wouldn’t it be great to see Pine dig deep into his dark soul and unleash a tortured and conflicted character like the lovably complex Dexter?  It could work – Dexter is supposedly having a child this upcoming season and using one of those flash-forward techniques, Chris Pine could appear as Dexter’s better looking son: Trekster.  Now I’m starting to giggle like a girl!  And, if you’re looking for further validation, just consider the following “strange but true” coincidences: Michael C. Hall, before his delicious Dexter role, was in the hit series “Six Feet Under.”  It turns out that Chris Pine is “Just Over Six Feet.”  Stranger yet, the Dexter character is a blood splatter expert for the Miami P.D.  Chris Pine’s real life father played Sgt. Getaer on the 80’s series CHiPs.  On the surface, not much of a coincidence there; but don’t you wish Ponch got Punched so badly a blood splatter expert as talented as Dexter was called in to analyze the mess?   

It’s neither here nor there.  An endless stream of cash from Star Trek sequels awaits and the constant popping of camera flashes will no doubt poison the fresh-faced Pine.  Will he be bold and daring in his film choices to come?  Who cares.  As soon as Perez Hilton starts drawing circles around your crotch you’ve already reached the apex of stardom.
