Where the tweetle beetles battle

It’s Autumn! This is my favorite season by far. Aside from the obvious awesomeness of Halloween, colorful foliage and decreased crime, I love the fall because of the weather. Cooler temperatures mean I get to pull out my man-talking power outfits. Blazers, scarves, overcoats… they’re all street legal now, and I love it. I’m just so much more confident in layers.

A while ago I commissioned Julianna Swaney of Oh My Cavalier to make me a “masculine” fashion accessory. Her previous brooches are fantastic, but the kids on the playground would always make fun of me for wearing them. I basically asked her to take her work and dudeify it. The result, pictured above, blew me away. That striped ribbon is gorgeous, and the drawing, as always, set my heart aflutter.

Anyway, now that the weather has changed I’m really excited to wear it attached to my more neutral sport coats. It looked a little silly just pinned to my He-Man t-shirt.

Fibulae for the fabulous

Let me make this clear: it is okay for men to wear brooches. I picked up two very reasonably priced brooches from Oh My Cavalier a few weeks ago and they’ve worked their way into my everyday ensemble. I was worried at first because the word “brooch” doesn not exactly carry a masculine connotation. I’ve come to realize that they’re wonderful, and I’ve since gotten a lot of compliments on them.

In addition to what’s displayed above, I also have a lovely Banjo Bear brooch attached to my winter coat. Serious street cred.

(Did I mention I only wear suits now? Because I do, and it’s fantastic.)
