There's a soft-serve place by me that offers a pumpkin spice/eggnog twist during autumn. It makes me wish it were autumn more often.

If something has "pumpkin" flavor, I always get it. It is superior to other flavors during the appropriate seasons. Damnit, I am going to make a non-seasonal pumpkin pie tomorrow.

Oh my. Sleeves are fantastic!

I love tattoos, but I've never found something I've wanted to get done. That may be changing as I keep thinking of getting something on my right wrist.

I want to be able to wear this colour:


It's my favourite. But I'm not sure how well it would go with my rosy cheeks.

That dress would look marvelous on you. Your rosy cheeks would simply give you that vivacious glow that reflects your inner princess, therefore completing the look.

Thanks for the compliment!

I was thinking more of a silk shirt or something similar, but I would wear the dress if someone bought it for me.

I like to think I look good in my beloved green, especially green shirts w/ blue jeans though as Mr. ! noted above finding the right size takes priority over color which is why I don't have anything in my 2nd favorite color purple.
Until recent years I'd pretty much always worn black and dark blue since they're slimming before I finally said fuck it and realized that everybody can tell I'm the size of a Volkswagen anyway so I might as well try to look nice.

Incidentally, I considered making a parody thread titled "Satirical colors" but I decided against it because I couldn't think of a 2nd joke ("There was a 1st joke?" Fuck off.) to go with it.
I tell you this in case anybody had felt a vague twinge of existential dread and wondered what it was from.

It's not, it's really not. The key is understanding that big guys don't expect you to be in to them but chances are damn good you have their attention. Offer them some pumpkin ice cream, the ones with self esteem and an iota of self awareness should pick the ball up and run with it. Or eat it depending on if it looks tasty.

Lovely dress! I have two - very plain ones -in that color; one as a cocktail, one for dancing.

I agree with Amaranthine - the color should suit you. Silk shirt is an excellent idea - try the shade in a matt/dusky silk quality for the best effect. That would be the best compliment for your complexion and bring out your eyes very well (judging from the pictures you've posted in the past.)

You're already doing a good job on your own - 100 points for styling and color coordination, both look great on you!

You spread the ice cream on the girl as topping and then eat her! Who doesn't know things like that!

Bahaha.

Thanks for the compliment--that's one of my favorite dresses. And to make it even better, I paid $12 for it at a flea market.

Hmm... I see your point. I'm not used to making the first move, but perhaps I need to step my game up. And get more ice cream.

When I started work after finishing university I needed to buy rather a lot of clothes. The workplace was still shirt and tie, suits if customers were visiting. I had some appropriate clothes but not enough for bachelor laundry habits (plus within a few months much of the older stuff was getting kind of snug….). It was then that I began to try and figure out what really worked for me—up until then I think I looked at what looked good on other people, and assumed it would be good on me too, or I wore whatever my parents had given me for Christmas.

It happened that “Color Me Beautiful” had been all the rage amongst women at that time, and it happened that when I interrupted one early clothes shopping trip by taking refuge in a book store, I saw a big display of “Color Me Beautiful for Men.” That title had to be one of the worst marketing decisions in a long time and I suspect it sold very poorly, but I did buy a copy, and studied it assiduously. Probably I took it too seriously, but it was my first guide to clothes. Anyway, it turned out that I’m a classic ‘Summer.’

Out of all the ‘Summer’ shades I’m mostly into the grey-blues and the blue-greys, with off-white for dressier shirts. (the right blended tones seem to show up more often with silk than cotton, but good quality silk shirts have become rare, expensive, and hard to find in my size in recent years). I’ve had the occasional blue-green sweater that works well for me.

I honestly tend not to have the right colours cladding my legs, as neither jeans nor dress pants tend to come in my palette very often, and the bigger challenge is finding things that sit properly, so I take what I can get in colours when I do find something with a semi-decent cut for me.

I agree with Amaranthine - the color should suit you. Silk shirt is an excellent idea - try the shade in a matt/dusky silk quality for the best effect. That would be the best compliment for your complexion and bring out your eyes very well (judging from the pictures you've posted in the past.)
I bet you look sumptuous! Show us!!

I should probably post a few more photos of myself on the board, it has been quite a while since the last batch.

Or you could be like me and not realise when women are interested. At all.
Girls are so inscrutable!

Fuck the color, I want to wear that dress.
You can borrow it as long as you promise to return it in good condition.
