Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
I’ve recently developed feelings for one of my friend’s ex-boyfriends. Throughout their whole relationship she lied to him and cheated multiple times. I saw him at his most vulnerable and he would confide in me when things with them were rough. He and I became really good friends throughout the whole thing and everyone expected we both had a thing for each other. Though they broke up and he moved back to a city 10 hours away from me, he and I have stayed friends for two years now. Recently, he came up to visit and we unexpectedly hooked up … three times. Both of us admitted our feelings for each other after all this time. Now I’m conflicted. Did I break a girl code hooking up with him even though he and my friend broke up over a year ago, she is now currently living with her new boyfriend, and she treated him badly? He and I have both admitted we want to see each other again and maybe even try and give a relationship a shot. How/when should I tell her about us and is it a bad idea to pursue anything with the guy I could see myself falling in love with but who my friend still has a dibs on because of a stupid girl code? — Wanting What I Can’t Have
Refinery 29 put me on to Street Etiquette, a men’s street fashion blog run by two gentlemen from the Bronx, Joshua Kissi and Travis Gumbs. These guys and the other stylish men they feature on their site have mastered the art of making retro-inspired clothing look current. And their accessories game is on point, too. I love a man who’s not afraid to wear jewelry–and I like the way they wear multiple rings, bangles/bracelets, and necklaces.
Sometimes it’s great to borrow from the men’s department, and I instantly fell in love with this look from photographer Kadeem Johnson, a friend of Street Etiquette. I knew I had to recreate it for the ladies. Only problem, though? It’s very difficult to find a maroon and blue stripe button-down shirt right now (his is vintage). So check out a similar look after the jump. Keep reading »
The pink carpet at the 2010 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was populated with men who had no qualms talking about what they prefer when it comes to women’s lingerie, but Tyson Beckford seemed to sum it up best.
