Menswear Mondays: Skinny Jeans Fab or Fail?

Hola my lovely people out there! Hope your enjoying this blessed Monday that is before us.

Now I know skinny jeans are not a new trend, for men or women, but there is much commentary on men wearing skinny jeans and I have noticed that my male friends fall on both sides, arguments for and against them. So I thought I’d bring it to you guys.

For my men out there: How do you feel about wearing skinny jeans or other men who do (if you don’t)?

For my ladies: How do you feel about men who wear skinny jeans?

My personal view is that I don’t mind a man wearing skinny jeans as long as he does so in a way that is still manly. My biggest thing is that they aren’t too tight and that they fit your body type. For instance, some of my more stocky men out there may benefit more from straight leg jeans while my men of slimmer build look better in skinnies. And I would prefer skinny jeans or straight leg jeans ANY DAY over those baggy monstrosities that are 10 sizes too big and puckled up with a belt around the waist…or worse, sagging below your buttcheeks.

Just my opinion though…

…and I want you guys opinions.

Let me know how you feel about skinnies on men

Fab or Fail?

Until Next Time, XOXO JAZ’

Hair of the Week

Hola guys I’m here with another post for all my hair lovers out there. So as I’ve said before, I’m natural and my hair is verrrryyyy thick. For this reason, and the fact that my schedule is way to busy to do anything otherwise, I don’t like to fuss with my hair everyday. I usually do one style for the week and my hair will stay that way (or some variation of it all week). This week it was a twist-out. I did my hair in about 16-20 twists, put them in a ponytail overnight and took them down in the morning. They were still a little damp which allowed for more shrinkage and less definition, but I still liked the results.

Here are a few pictures of how it looked when I first took down the twists (disclaimer: I would NEVER wear it like this, just wanted to show you all what it looked like before I manipulated it)

Looks crazy right now right? I know, but here’s the finished product….
