The Curious Case of Fatherly Fashion

fashion fatherThis is a fashion piece. Particularly, fatherly fashion. Let nobody be confused. I am the last person who should write about fashion. If you meet me one year, and then again ten years later, you might be left with a question: Wasn’t he wearing that same shirt ten years ago?

So, I have no qualifications to write this, except one: being human. And, right now, my human eye is in the airport looking at a father with his three daughters. I can’t help but note that his attire is similar to many fathers.

Money Versus Beauty

women and moneyMy friends told me of a particular New York Craigslist post the other night that I had not seen. In the post, a “spectacularly beautiful” woman requests a man who earns greater than $500,000 a year. A man responds to her that her beauty is a “depreciating asset” while his money will continue to grow. His response garnered much attention.

Punta Del Este, Uruguay: Summer on The Gold Coast

bikini at punta del este in the summerReturning to Punta Del Este, after being there during the winter, was like returning to a ghost-town and finding it filled with people laughing, drinking, sunning, and enjoying every moment.

The wealthy set from all over South America and the world descend on Punta Del Este immediately after Christmas and the party lasts for a few months.
