Prints and Tailoring; Keys to Fall

Sorry for the lack of updates this week, its been a little hectic!
Just in case you’re still upset, I’ll distract you with shoes!

Working on everything for the launch of Ostentology, starting classes, and working at my uber monotonous day job has worn me out! But I haven’t been worked hard enough to stop looking at inspiration for my fall wardrobe! There are two things that I’ve dubbed crucial to any outfit I put together; proper fit, and plenty of unique prints.

The top half of this outfit is nondescript but the perfectly sized collar and pants make the look classic with an extremely chic twist. I don’t think it’s appropriate to tell you what kind of things I would do for those pants. The print is SO cool, I love how its on the cutting edge of fashion but seems conservative when paired with the rest of the look.

I would not hesitate to steal that bag off Brad Goreski’s back to go with the pants either. I love him, but I love the bag more! I mean hello, its neon yellow.

Okay, well I’m going to go watch Bill Cunningham New York. Jealous? Yeah, you should be.

While I do that, you should read THIS!

Fall Transitions

I am sad (but excited!!!) to announce that in the next 7-10 days, The Fagazine will be coming to an end. Well, not really. It’s just changing it’s name, getting a face lift, and moving to Tijuana
But really, I feel that Ryan and I have outgrown this little ball of sassifrass pop culture blog, and it’s time for us to move on to something a little more, how should I say it, fierce.
With that, I bring you Ostentology:

Ostentology came to be when I was having a conversation with friends about the way a certain celebrity dresses. They described the look as ostentatious, but I begged to differ. I have always been a proponent of the more is more philosophy when it comes to style. “Toning it down” isn’t a part of my vocabulary. Spinning off of the word ostentatious, I came up with the name for the new blog, Ostentology. Ostentology is defined as follows: The science of more is more fashion. “More is more fashion” describes my personal belief that no look is over the top if you feel comfortable in it, and know how to werk it! The website will be up and running in the next 7-10 days. -Zach Shumate

Ryan and I are supremely excited to be working on this new project. We sincerely hope that all of you, the readers, remain with us through this transition. Don’t worry about losing your daily dose of snark though, the content on the site, and the way I write will not be changing. It’s like I said; The Fagazine is just changing it’s name, and getting a face lift.

Thank you for all of your love and support, and I hope you come along with us for this exciting change!
