Brian's Many Outfits and Other Random Stuff

I know that these pictures are a little late since they were taken around Christmas time, but they were just too great to pass up so I thought I'd share. First, Brian shows off his many fashionable looks for the winter season.

First, we have the "Lumberman" look. This unique and manly look is created by an oversized earthy green coat over a pair of tight overalls. Of course, a lumberman will never be found without a good pair of sturdy boots, as we can see. To top it all off we have a bright red woolen cap and an offwhite scarf. Set the model (Brian) in a rustic log cabin, and men everywhere will be clamoring for this winter ensemble.

The next look is titled "Mystery of the Orient" and brings out the mysterious side of the personality. Here we have Brian sporting a silky blue tunic, and although it is hard to see, a pair of puffy purple pants. For this outfit the headwear is essential. A sparkly purple turban topped by a red velvet and bejeweled hat makes the outfit both flashy and regal. Next to Brian you will see me sporting a similar outfit, this one titled "The Sheikh."
This was cetainly Brian's most classic look for the winter season. Brian brings Santa back with this red number, complete with jingle bells and a full length beard. I must say, Santa has never looked so good. And last, we have the "Snow Nerd." This outfit, with its short snap-button jacket, tight pants, ski goggles, and bulky gloves, is both charming and laughable. Add Brian's, I'm-so-excited-to-go-play-in-the-snow-I-don't-care-what-i'm-wearing smile and we have an outift that screams both "cute" and "nerd." I just had to share this picture because it is funny. We found this coat in.....(drumroll).....that's right, my basement. For those of you who don't know, you can find anything you want in the basement, as long as you are not too particular. Many times I have been asked the question "Where did you get that?" and with a sigh I can only reply "I found it in my basement." Anyway, this coat is just a little bit big. In fact, it is so big that Brian could zip me up inside with him.
If you can't tell, I have been writing fashion articles for work during the entire month of February.....

Yes, if I had a dollar for every time I heard that phrase come from your mouth I would be a millionaire! And not only that, but I have also heard myself say many times, "I found it in Mandy's basement." Your basement is a treasure box! Brings back so many fun memories ;)

The snow nerd is my favorite. Although I've seen it sported many times before. . . on mom!

Hilarious - glad you're putting your writing skills to good use!

Bahahaha! I love the snow nerd too, and have so many memories of mom in her garbage man suit with that coat on going out to feed the horses. In subzero weather in the middle of the night. It's a good look for Brian, ha ha.

I love all the outfits! Brian is such a good sport to not only wear them but to let you take pictures! The fashion descriptions sound like they come right from a fashion magazine! Nice work.
