I attended Atlanta Tastemaker Magazine’s B. Fab Awards this weekend. This fabulous event showcased the city’s best fashion and beauty bloggers. It was such a fantastic event!
This event reminded me about our diverse styles here. There are a lot of people in Atlanta that have style and grace. So many artists, musicians, creative and tech types roaming Atlanta’s dating scene. It got me to thinking of how I love a man who has his own unique style.
Needless to say, a man in a suit and tie turns my head. However, I have a confession to make. If a guy has poor taste in clothes, I judge him. I’m not saying I totally rule someone out based on his choice of threads, but something else about him would have to make him stand out.
I suppose that is one of those shallow things that single people are guilty of focusing on in the dating scene. It has backfired on me before, though. I met a guy at a fancy networking function. He showed up to our first date wearing really awful and ill-fitted outfit. Also his hygiene was pretty bad! I decided he was probably a stroke victim and couldn’t really help it.
When you meet people out and about, what kind of things do you notice about their style or image? I know some men think ladies have a sexy church lady image, which, apparently is a thing? I did not realize this was so common.
Do you think that clothes really “make” the man? If you met a guy who did not own a suit, would that take away from his appeal?
