The Suspend(s) is Killing Me!

So I have a little confession to make.  I have a serious attraction to guys in suspenders.  I can't quite put my finger on the reason... Is it the vintage flavor?  The throwback to more pulled-together, refined men's fashion of bygone eras?  Could it be the just-nerdy-enough that it's sexy look?  Well, whatever the reason... I'm coming out with my strange little swoon-trigger and sharing some seriously classy eye candy with you.  So before the suspense suspend(s) kills ya, on with the show!

The tiny gingham print, skinny tie, and glasses on this guy?!  Too cute.  ^He's just too cute.

Okay, so maybe there's only a glimpse of suspenders here... but I'm digging those^ shoes, too.

Mmm mmm mmm. ^Looking classic and cool with leather suspenders, denim shirt, and cardigan.

Yes, please.

This^ fellow is too adorable for words. 

And here's a whole gang^ of heartbreakers.  

The scruff is what really compliments this^ guy's suspenders.  

Same with this^ dude.  Classy.

Skinny suspenders?  ^He's laying it on thick with the style.

So I'm the only one that swoons at the sight of a well-dressed man in suspenders?  Surely not!  Confess right now, ladies!


Lovely pictures! And no, you're not the only one who loves guys in suspenders. Glee reminded me of men in vests - they can look cool(especially if the guy looks a bit like Will Schuester) :D

suspenders, yes (Doctor Who, anyone?) but vests even more!

Hmmm...It is cute in theory. My biggest turn off though is when men take longer than me to get ready and I think with the hair and the suspenders these boys just might be bordering into that territory. I do love the guy in the more formal suspenders. I love a man in a suit.

Yesss, vests are very good things, too! :)

I just recently watched my first-ever episode of Doctor Who... but if you're telling me there's lotsa suspenders, I have another reason to keep watching!
Jessica Hansen said…
Totally know where you're coming from there! Although for me, it definitely depends on the guy. I've known guys who took forrrrever to get ready... and yet they still looked liked they'd just rolled outta bed and threw on a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. I've also known a few fellas who are ready in a snap and literally just throw stuff on... but they turn out looking sooo dapper!

I LOVE a man in a suit, too. :) More men need to suit up on a regular basis! lol.

My guy worked at a Men's Wearhouse, so he's all into clothes and he definitely rocks the suspenders. I love it!
Definitely - I have suspenders as well, but I didn't know how to wear them. But now I know! Yay. Please check out my blog - I'm also into crafting, reading, fashion (though not on my blog) and photographing. :)

I agree. There's absolutely something about suspenders. Maybe the Urkel/Stephan transformation planted this in our head from childhood?


DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)

Penny's Apartment | Big Bang Theory

Aniela, a lovely reader from Germany, sent me an email requesting advice on recreating the style of Penny's apartment on Big Bang Theory.
