The Average Dude's Guide to Hiring a Personal Stylist

Get over the notion that stylists are just for women and celebrities
Some guys know they’re completely clueless about clothes, but would never dream of hiring a personal stylist because they assume they’re not rich/famous/important/successful enough. The truth is, a good private stylist has experience with all kinds of people, from “rich and famous” to “Average Joe.” While there are expensive stylists who focus on Park Avenue ladies and celebrity clientele, there are just as many private stylists who charge affordable rates and work with clients from all walks of life.

Among these are five talented costume designers: Jacqueline Durran for Anna Karenina, Paco Delgado for Les Miserables, Joanna Johnston for Lincoln, Eiko Ishioka for Mirror Mirror, and Colleen Atwood for Snow White and the Huntsman. Though only one can take home the statue, all five of these designers produced award-worthy work on their respective films. Read More...

NYC Bargain Shopping Tour

Planning a trip to NYC? If so, you know how quickly things start to add up. The hotel, the airfare, the theatre tickets...slowly but surely, you find your little weekend getaway turning into a very big expense.

The thing is, though, you can’t come to NYC and not spend some time shopping. First, New York is one of the world’s great shopping cities, and second, you’ll want to go home with at least a couple of unique purchases to remind you of your trip. (Plus when your friends ask where you got it, you’ll have a great answer!) But if your budget is shaping up to be more bargain hunting than Balenciaga, you might think you’ll be priced right out of the Big Apple.
