Kal Rau

Gentlemen… I take my hat off to you (it’s a cute fushia leather hat from Maitreya… heehee).  I never really realized how limited you are when it comes to shopping for a wardrobe.  Men’s fashion has developed at a much slower pace than womenswear but there is a fair amount of quality clothing out there that folks may not be aware of.  There are good designers and then there are GREAT designers.  Kal Rau falls into GREAT!

Kal Rau knows what looks good on a man and designs a line of very easy going and sporty clothing.  The versatility is great… you can mix and match his designs and add a few accessories to boot.  The craftsmanship of the clothing is incredible and the textures are so real.  You walk away looking like a million bucks without spending it.

How many times have you walked into a clothing store and picked up some promotional (freebie) clothing just to get home, try it on and delete it?  I know I’ve done it so often I can’t keep track.  You would think you would learn by now, right?  But you just can’t pass up a freebie and I’m happy Brett didn’t either.  This is what freebies should look like.  The Kal Rau Sport Shorts and White Long Sleeve Promotional Shirt are perfect .

THIS WEEK IS MIMI’S CHOICE – MEN’S

MIMI’S CHOICE – Men

CONGRATULATIONS!

MIMI JUNEAU   voted  SL ENTREPRENEUR OF THE YEAR 

Last week I had the pleasure of writing about Mimi’s Choice – Women’s.  As I had promised earlier, I am dedicated to writing more about men’s fashion and the ability for men to be able to read this blog and find new and fantastic places to purchase quality clothing.

Across the street from Mimi’s women’s clothing, is located Mimi’s men’s.  When you walk into the shop you immediately notice the tranquil and beautifully designed atmosphere.  Everywhere you look it is pleasing to your eyes.  Clothing is supported by an array of designers who do absolute quality clothing for the man with an eye towards fashion.  Let’s face it, everyone will notice a man who is dressed well, the same as women are noticed.  There are those out there who don’t really care, but I want to say that a few extra linden’s put towards your wardrobe will speak volumes about anyone, especially men.

At Mimi’s you can find anything from designer jeans and shirts to outstanding tuxes.  The layout of the shop makes it easy to find anything you are looking for.  It is not crowded and over packed with items.  Yet it is definitely a one stop shopping experience.  I love simplicity and not over crowding.  Knowing a little about men, they don’t care for it either.  Make it easy and they love it.

Happy holidays everyone! My name is Angie and this is my first entry on the EFA blog. I hope you like it.

I love a beautifully made sweater. If a sweater is designed the right way it can make you feel warm and special and at peace with the world. The shape of a sweater and the way it is knit can give you a whole new attitude. I love my blue cardigan, the sleeves are unique and stylish and add a little extra swing to a diva’s walk. For a little aesthetic depth I put a basic black turtleneck underneath, and borrowed a gray wool skirt from another outfit to bring the cardigan and the turtleneck together. A pair of tights that are the perfect shade of black, and some cheeky Mary Jane’s that I can‘t get enough of. I paired the outfit up with a short and sassy hairdo, a pair of fabulous shades and pearl earrings to finish it off. So fashionistas, pull those knits out of your closet, use your imagination and have fun!
