DapperPenniless Gets a New Suit-- And It's Under $150.00!

Last year I wrote two blog posts about my search for a Men's cut blazer to add to my wardrobe. I wrote about some of the issues I had in finding Men's cut blazers that fit my body type! While all of the issues of fit still exist with off the rack suiting, I was not deterred and this weekend I made due on my promise to get a suit that makes me look as good as I feel inside--- anddd in true DapperPenniless Fashion, I got it for under $150! Check me out in my new navy blue TopMan suit!

This Look is Inspired by Nature Herself

My friends and I needed a quick reset, so we grabbed some cases of wine and beer and headed for the mountains in Warrensburg, NY! With no cell service and my friends surrounding me, I began to realize how at peace I felt! I put together a look that encompasses the the bold and the beautiful of this weekend, which makes this look inspired by nature herself!

When in Miami...

Last Week, I was in Miami visiting some family I needed a little retail therapy! I tried out the Aventura Mall which was a bit more upscale than I thought... but I didn't fret! Sometimes you can find a lot of stylish and great quality pieces, at affordable prices, in the sale sections of high end stores. Last season's items can still be timeless, just like this CPO Lobster Print Shirt I Found at Urban Outfitters!
