Welcome to the Peacock Revolution

There is a war going on. A war against machoism. What is machoism? Machoism, as defined by myself, is the belief that in order to be a man in today's society one should be a dirty, grungy, obtuse, hairy, bare-knuckle dragging, neandertal. No more! I am declaring war on machoism. This blog will forge a revolution. A Peacock Revolution!

Join me in the battle against bad fashion!

Revitalizing Dinner with Friends

Greetings style mavens,

It's been a long time since I posted. My sincerest apologies. If you have been reading my blog, then you know that from time to time I have issues that affect my life and prevents me from being creative. This last one was no different only in the fact that it lasted a little longer.  However, I recently had lunch with my fabulous friends Fashion Pad creator Shanequa, Dexter, and Dawana of Dress Haven, and I have to say GOD will put great people in your life to strengthen you when you are weak...

So, it's been a while since I really put some thought into my outfit. All I have been doing is work and piecing my life together. However, I'm glad to see I still have my GOD given gift.

I combed through my closet to find something worthy of my fashionable friends. I decided upon this wonderful Ralph Lauren blazer that a friend found for me at Goodwill.

Ralph Lauren is a master at signature American class, so I paired it with a simple striped shirt and grey shorts.  This color scheme instantly suggests casual/prep, which is exactly what I was going for. I also added this cute gold leaf headband that I got from Asos.com to give the outfit a little bit of fantasy.

All brown accessories seal the style. Tan belt, Amaretto-colored ring, and my trusty Cole Haan oxfords.

Blazer: Ralph Lauren
Shirt: Banana Republic
Headband: Asos
Shorts: Forever 21
Ring: Banana Republic
Belt: Target
Oxfords: Cole Haan

What a refreshing and energizing dinner,
