Happy April Fools Day :)

My name is Christopher, and I’m Tania’s boyfriend and staff photographer. Today, I’m stepping out from behind the camera to post on Tania’s blog. I’ve been looking to Tania’s blog for inspiration lately when I’m getting dressed, but frankly, I’ve been feeling a little confused. None of the outfits worked like she said they would. For example, I tried belting this cardigan and pairing it with this scarf and glasses I bought. I threw on some orange lipstick to tie it all together…or maybe not. Have a gander at the results:

See…something looks a bit, I don’t know, not quite right. And I don’t think the glasses work either. After my earlier experiment sputtered, I thought outerwear could solve my problem. Readers of Tania’s blog will know her fondness for pattern mixing. I thought I’d “kick it up another notch” by mixing patterns AND insulative properties. Because cool weather is lingering here in the Midwest, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to try some down/breathable fabric fusions. Buuuuuuut…

apr 1

Filled with frustration, I tried one final combination. This time, I went to my ace in the hole—sequins! Sequins say “fancy,” but I can dress them down by pairing them with jeans, right? Throw on a wintery cap to look “fashionably bundled,” and I thought I’d have a surefire winner. Like Tania, though, I had a hard time standing still in front of the camera.

You are not allowed to ask where this vest came from. But you are allowed to join me wishing Tania a happy April Fool’s day! I’m stuck in Philly and I miss you already, Tania.

P.S. Last year's April Fools post :)

See, I knew I liked you. What with all the shared nerdiness and the lobster dress and the Twitter banter. But now there's this. I mean, really. This- particularly the sequins- has solidified a now undying affection. Youre' both hired x 10 to the 23rd.

My Heart Blogged said...

This is so cute! I think the sequins sure look fancy on him. Great April fools day post.

Sarah said...

I just realized I've been following your blog for about a year now because i remembered last year's post too! Your personalities seem so complementary and wonderful. I laughed outloud at those pictures..

Anahera Moon said...

Love it!! Love the goofy crazy cool boyfriends who are willing to commit shameless acts in the name of tom-foolery!! My Boy is that kinda crazy too, he came out to the kitchen the other day wearing his tee tucked into one of my high-waist skirts, teamed with my new winter russian style fur hat!! Love the blog! So inspired by your style, have passed on many gems of fashion wisdom from your pages!

lauren said...

HILARIOUS! This is brilliant. And I'm totally following you now :)

LOL! This is awesome!!

C said...

while I was reading this, I was thinking "hilarious" and so many other people had the same word in mind. None the less, y'all laugh, but next spring some guy in Italy will belt his down coat during fashion week and it will be high fashion, no joke. And Tania, is it you who started the whole "stripe" thing this spring? Haven't you been wearing striped shirts since day one?

I'm just about 19 days late, which seems right at this point in my life...! This was great, I'm so glad I saved the email thread!
