Style Icon: Mondo

Project Runway is absolutely my favorite reality television program. I love it so much! The fashion! The drama! The fashion! Tim Gunn! The fashion! My favorite Project Runway contestant of all time is Mondo Guerra. Love him

If I were a fellow, I'd be rocking the bow tie on the regular, and really, as a lady, I think it's also a cool sartorial choice. I'll put it on my to-do list: Rock the lady bow tie. Mondo, he rocks the bow tie like it's nobody's business. Also: Pictured above is my favorite outfit ever on Project Runway. Look at the pants. The pants!

So Mondo is so cute in his bow ties and his short shorts and glasses (and fanny pack - what?). He is creative and misanthropic and embraces newsboy caps. He's an adorable little school boy with a pompadour. 

BUT he also cleans up nice in a suit with actual pants. The school boy look is my favorite, but he looks great as an adult as well. Mondo's the best!

It's enough

(That's nice.)

Style Icon: Lloyd Dobler from "Say Anything"

Lloyd Dobler. He made us swoon.He created unrealistic expectations. He is the dreamiest dreamboat of late '80s cinema. He wore a trench coat. He held up a boombox. He gave her his heart, she gave him a pen. He is one iconic style icon.

Style Icon: Jack Kerouac

Okay, first I have to be honest and say I'm not a huge fan of Jack Kerouac as a writer. I'm not saying he's not amazing. I'm just saying, he's not to my taste. I haven't read him since I was in my early 20s so maybe I should give him another shot. I think he's just not my style. But his style? Yeah. That's my style. You can't deny he's dreamy! He has that all-American heart-throb thing going on.

Very masculine. Kinda tough. But also bookish. Is it wrong to call this acclaimed writer a dreamboat? I mean, is that really so wrong? Does it make it more wrong that I'm not actually a fan of his writing? 

Well wrong or not, there's no denying Jack Kerouac was a total dreamboat. That's just a fact. A fact that goes down in American literary history.
