'Nothing Funny with this Fanny'

The 80's was a decade some people loved or rather forget. A time when excessive hair, make up and shoulder pads were the trends. And Members Only jackets and fanny packs were the men's choice.

Leave it to Gucci to bring the fanny pack back! This belt bag ( a more acceptable and fashionable term ) is so hot that Saks Fifth Avenue limits per customer 3 purchases within a 30 day period. I myself am planning on getting this modern version of an 80's fashion icon.

Gucci Belt Bag in Nero and Chocolate $530.00 Saks.com


Summer Sunglasses

Sunglasses are key accessories for men this summer. Styles like shield and aviator are the trend for the season! Invest on a great pair that will last for at least a couple of years, unless you tend to lose them like me. Here are a couple of styles to go by when shopping for sunglasses! Feel free to contact me if you need any shopping assistance, I'll be more than happy to help out.

Giorgio Armani Metal Shield Sunglasses $312.00 Forzieri.com

Summer Fragrance for Men

In fashion, as the seasons changes trends and styles follow suite. But one of the most overlooked and neglected or perhaps just simply not knowing that your cologne has to adapt to the season. And that's what we are here for! To share and inform. Improving one person at a time.

During hot summer days, I suggest to choose 'fresh' scents like citrus, water or anything that smells clean and refreshing. Avoid aromatic scents or colognes that are 'wood' inspired those are more appropriate for fall and winter.

So here are my top 3 picks for this summer.

  • Prada Man 'Silver' Limited Edition $57.00
  • Burberry 'Summer' for Men $55.00
  • Issey Miyake 'Intense' For Men $54.00-$74.00
All from Nordstrom.com

Happy Father's Day!

From all of us here at Chic Things Galleria, Thank You Dads and Happy Father's Day!

"Dad, Thank You."

For the good times that we share,
Thanks for always listening,
For trying to be fair.

Thank you for your comfort,
When things are going bad,
Thank you for the shoulder,

To cry on when I'm sad.
This poem is a reminder that
All my life through,
I'll be thanking Heaven
For a Special Dad like you.
