An Important Client


Occasionally I'm asked if I can style someone for an event, or assist with building a wardrobe. I love helping people look their best! But Sunday, I had my most important "client" to date - Mr. BF. When we first met, my main squeeze was quite the savvy dresser - jackets that fit perfectly, interesting shirt/sweater combinations...I don't think he even owned a pair of jeans! But I guess six years of marriage challenged his apparel a bit (and perhaps the fact that his wife appropriates considerable space in our tiny, Boston closets). Lately he's fallen into a rut of jeans and plaid shirts. He decided it was time to do a little shopping, try something new, and get sartorially set for fall. 

We spent a good amount of time (along with Edem of The Urbane Club) at Banana Republic, trying on sweaters and pants. I have to hand it to Mr. BF - there was an entire wall of plaid shirts, calling to him like a siren, but he really stepped outside his comfort zone to try on sweaters in...I can't believe I am saying this...actual colors. At the urging of myself and Edem, he tried on a camel coat and he liked it!


I'm hoping to convince Mr. BF to make a cameo appearance on the blog in some of his new digs - he looks seriously dapper. What's your favorite menswear look? Do you prefer an edgy quality, or pulled-together, classic style?

  3. I like it when an outfit has a twist of interest. Not too edgy because then it can look like they're trying too hard. Not too classic, because well then it's just boring. I think it'd be great if you could convince the BF to make a guest appearance in his new digs. Male fashion is too under represented! xoxo

  4. Oh lady, I had a moment like this of my own this weekend when my Mr. was shopping on Nordstrom.com this weekend looking at sweaters too. I just wanted to burst with excitement (but held it in b/c I don't want to freak him out.)

    I hope Mr. Boston Fashionista makes a cameo - maybe I can use it to help propel my Mr. into taking that leap into the sweater universe. :)

  16. I like my husband in more classic/traditional styles, and luckily that's what he likes too. My favorite look on him is dress pants, a white oxford shirt and a camel hair sportcoat.
