Top Men’s Fashion Blogs - Fashion for Fellas Jillian McCoy When it comes to style, most men need a little help. Usually dismissed as a feminine interest, fashion choices can make a big impact on a man’s quality of life. From feeling better about your appearance, to looking sharp on a job interview - and let’s not forget impressing women sometimes the clothes really do make the man. Like so many things in our modern age, fashion is easy to learn about online. These are a few of the top men’s fashion blogs online, full of tips and suggestions to increase the average guy’s style quotient. Kempt Kempt is something of an online mens’ magazine. Interspersed with the grooming and fashion tips and looks at cutting-edge designs are accessories and gadgets of interest to the stylish guy. Rounding out Kempt are posts linking to other men’s style blogs and items of interest - often capped with photos of beautiful (and scantily clad) women. Kempt is no Maxim, however; if anything, this men’s style blog is Maxim’s classy and understated older brother.

Style Salvage Style Salvage is run by a pair of twenty-something Brits, focusing on hip fashion with a twist. The overall feel of Style Salvage’s fashion oeuvre is hipster meets street meets dandy, with forays into well-structured pieces with unconventional touches (such as a gray tweed overcoat displaying a vibrant band of purple when the collar’s flipped up). Their “Style Stalking” feature follows fashionable guys through several different examples of their personal style. Interviews with designers and fashion news round things out, making this blog a unique starting point for men interested in fashion. The Sartorialist The Sartorialist isn’t specific to men’s fashion and style, but has enough of it to make it remarkable. This blog focuses on fashion and style photography, as well as both men’s and women’s fashion. The Sartorialist is comprised mostly of high-quality fashion photos taken on the street, showing how styles are really being worn. This blog has a continental, upscale aesthetic,

focusing more on the idea of effortless affluent style than on dropping brand names. The GQ Eye What article on men’s fashion would be complete without mention of GQ? GQ Magazine is the gold standard for men’s fashion. Not only is it one of the most accessible publications for guys new to fashion and style, it remains a playbook for even the sharpest dressed men. The GQ Eye blog brings the magazine’s signature sleek style online, featuring fashionable photos, advice and informative articles. Stylenerds From the UK, Stylenerds is a style guide for blokes on both sides of the pond. This blog features some street fashion style as well as highend design, making it ideal for the 40-and-under crowd. Lots of emphasis is given to sneakers, niche brands and unconventional cool. Some of the brands featured are UK-specific,

such as Topman (Topshop), but could easily be used as a guideline for stylish alternatives and dupes available stateside. Unfortunately Stylenerds isn’t updated as frequently as the other top men’s fashion blogs on this list, but the contributors clearly favor quality over quantity.

10 Fashion Tips for the Well-Dressed Man

Guidelines to Help You Channel Your Inner Don Draper S.W. Hampson Fashion is mostly subjective but there are a few firm guidelines worth following if you wish to achieve a distinguished and dapper image. Don Draper from television’s “Mad Men” has these rules of thumb down to the point that it is almost a science and any man can achieve a similar level of style and sophistication by merely being aware of the subtleties that create a well-dress gentleman. These ten fashion guidelines will help you achieve a put-together look while also projecting power and class; heed this advice and you will look like you walked off the pages of Esquire magazine.

the opposite; make sure the shapes are in proportion. If you’re wearing a coat with a narrow lapel, make sure that your tie and collar also err on the narrower end of the spectrum, conversely broad lapels call for wider ties and thicker collars.

To Cuff or Not to Cuff, That is the Question Flat front pants can be cuffed or finished with a plain hem, but the plain hem is generally the preferred option. The plain hem lets the pant leg fall naturally and keeps with the streamlined aesthetic of a flat front pant. Pleated pants should always be cuffed at the bottom.

is known for frequently sporting this distinct fashion-forward look. Now don’t get crazy and start wearing brown shoes with black-tie formal wear or anything and always remember to match your belt to your shoes. Leather-Soled Dress Shoes Many men shy away from leathersoled dress shoes fearing discomfort and the cost. A well-made leathersoled dress shoe that is properly fitted to your foot should not be uncomfortable. Unfortunately, many men have been driven away from proper dress shoes because of a previous bad experience with ill-fitting shoes or shoes constructed around a poorly built last. In terms of cost, a leather-soled shoe should be viewed as an long-term wardrobe investment, helping justify the higher upfront cost. Rubber-soled shoes are disposable and usually thrown away after a year of wear; once the sole is done then the shoe is junk. Shoes with leather bottoms can be re-soled as needed, meaning that with proper care and upkeep you can own those shoes for much longer sometimes even decades - offsetting that higher initial cost of entry since you are not having to buy an entire new pair of shoes every time the sole wears out. Women and people in power also tend to notice subtle details like the construction of shoes and leather-soled shoes convey a sense of sophistication and an appreciation for quality. Clothing Maneuverability Another fashion myth that must be dispelled regards maneuverability. There is a widely held notion that European-cut slim-fitting suits somehow decrease maneuverability. This could not be further from the truth. Obviously, wearing clothing that is too tight will inhibit your ability to move around in comfort, but properly fit clothes that feature a slim cut actually allow the body to move more easily

than do baggy or loose-fitting clothes due to the form fitting nature of the slim-cut. You will also look like a well put together gentleman in your finely tailored dress clothing. Dark Solid Colored Dress Shirts Just because a button-down shirt has a collar and long sleeves does not mean it’s an appropriate dress shirt that can be paired with a suit or dress slacks and a sport coat. Avoid dark solid colored button-downs when donning a suit for a management meeting. Colors to avoid include burgundy, navy blue, and forest green. Wearing these dark solid colored button-down shirts tends to evoke memories of television’s Frasier, a man of taste but whose fashion is clearly from the ‘90s, or a character from “The Sopranos.” Stick with traditional and proper dress shirt patterns or lighter solid colors for your power meetings during this decade. Why Wear A Watch In this day of the ubiquitous smartphone with its perfectly set clock it seems like a watch is just a superfluous accessory. While the pure utility of a watch may be in question, remember that it looks far crasser to pull out a phone to check the time than to casually glance at your wrist. A tasteful timepiece is a completely acceptable and functional piece of jewelry for a gentleman to wear as a means of communicating a little personal style and taste. Nothing says “gentleman” like a low-profile dress watch or a classic sport watch subtly showing under your shirt cuff. A well-chosen timepiece can actually be a great conversation starter, much more so than the current iteration of iPhone. Avoid watches with plastic bands, blinged out diamonds and those measuring over 44 mm in diameter and you will be fine. Also, leave the Mickey Mouse watch at home unless, of course, you work for Walt Disney.

Widely proclaimed to be the greatest movie musical of all time, “Singin’ in the Rain,” with its Academy Awardnominated score, lovable characters, priceless dialogue and memorable songs, is the perfect choice for Pacific Symphony Pops’ upcoming presentation of “A Symphonic Night at the Movies.” A beautifully restored version of the 1952 American classic plays above the stage as the orchestra performs Nacio Herb Brown and lyricist Arthur Freed’s music live and in synch with the film. Set in Hollywood in the 1920s, the feel-good comedy follows three actors in their transition from silent films to “talkies.” The picture stars Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor, Debbie Reynolds and Jean Hagen, who dazzle viewers with impressive dancing, singing and quick-witted humor. With critics still raving today, the film ranked fifth on the American Film Institute’s list of the 100 greatest American movies of all time in 2007 and number one on its list of 100 Years of Musicals. It received 100 percent positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. Under the direction of Principal Pops Conductor Richard Kaufman, the orchestra plays all of the film’s popular songs, including “Fit as a Fiddle (and Ready for Love),” “Make ‘Em Laugh,” “Good Morning,” “Moses Supposes,” and of course, “Singin’ in the Rain,” ensuring everyone has “glorious feelings” and feels “happy again” by the end of the evening. Taking place Thursday-Saturday, May 9-11, at 8 p.m. in the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall, this Pops performance is ideal for children and

families of every generation. Tickets for the concert are $25-$185. For more information, call (714) 755-5799 or visit www.PacificSymphony.org. Patrons also have the rare opportunity to join Gene Kelly’s wife, Patricia Ward Kelly, and Maestro Kaufman for a post-concert conversation. In addition to discussing the film, the musical score and Gene Kelly’s feelings for the movie, audience members are invited to ask Mrs. Kelly and Kaufman specific questions. “I love the opportunity of presenting an entire score live with film,” says Kaufman. “It’s certainly a challenge to recreate the original score in a live performance, both artistically and in terms of synchronization. It keeps everyone on their toes. But most importantly, it gives the audience both a visual and audible experience that is unique and exciting. The film comes alive in a way that makes it feel brand new.” “Singin’ in the Rain” has become a staple of classic American film. However, directly after the movie’s release, it only received modest success: Donald O’Conner won the Golden Globe award for Best Actor and screenwriting duo Betty Comden and Adolph Green were recognized by the Writers Guild of America for Best Written Musical. The movie’s release came shortly after World War II and the Great Depression, so moviegoers longed for big production numbers and fantasy entertainment. While “Singin’ in the Rain” explores a tale of unforeseen love and bitter jealousy, it was a story that some considered too tangible and didn’t offer enough of an escape from

the real world. The movie tells the story of silentfilm actors Don Lockwood (Kelly) and Lina Lamont (Hagen): an unbeatable on-screen team. That is, until they are cast together in an upcoming “talkie” and Lina has trouble with her diction coach. When Kathy Selden (Reynolds), an aspiring actress, is brought in to dub vocals for a struggling Lina, she is overcome with jealously, especially because she mistakes Don and her on-screen love affair for real romance. Lina suddenly finds herself fighting for not just the production company’s attention, but Don’s as well. The Symphony concludes its Pop series season June 13-15 with “The Midtown Men,” featuring four stars from the original cast of “Jersey Boys,” singing top hits from The Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Jackson 5 and many more.

A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him. -David Brinkley The Ladera Ranch News

local Dentist Dr. Michael Tessier Discusses sleep problems.

While local dentist Dr. Michael Tessier is well known for his exceptionally gentle and friendly care of children, cosmetic restorations for adults, and both conventional and Invisalign orthodontics, his office also focuses on his patients overall health. “I read an article the other day that said, in effect, sleep could be hazardous to your health. They were referring to sleep apnea, the cessation of breathing while sleeping. I was especially interested in this topic as my office provides significant relief for people who suffer from this particular discomfort,” said Dr. Tessier. “Sleep apnea can be caused by extra redundant tissue (fat) in the throat or neck which can reduce the diameter of or even cut-off the windpipe while one is in a relaxed sleep-state. It can also be caused by the lower jaw relaxing back into the neck, allowing the base of the tongue to lie on the windpipe, like a manhole cover, cutting off the air flow to the lungs. This causes the body to wake up enough to take a deep breath. These wake-ups are often gasps for air, and may even include sitting boltupright in bed, in a panic. Either of these restrictions can happen as many as fortyfive times a minute (yes, a minute) preventing deep, replenishing sleep, and causing a dramatic reduction in the amount of oxygen that gets into the blood stream. This oxygen reduction negatively impacts the brain, and is damaging or stressful to the heart muscle, and may be fatal in some cases. “Just the other day, I had a conversation with a clinical psychologist about the negative results of sleep deprivation, like from sleep apnea, or just plain too-few hours of sack-time. She said that the biggest issue is the replenishment of neuro–transmitters (chemicals in nerve connections ((synapses)) like serotonin, acetylcholine, or dopamine) that could, among other things, lead to depression. The conversation went to medicinal sleep aids, like Temazepam or Ambien. I asked if taking drugs like that would be habit forming on a long-term basis. The doctor was of the opinion that the negatives from sleep deprivation were worse than the negatives from long-term use of drugs. “An easier solution than drugs is often to use one of our sleep apnea appliances, which are simple, unobtrusive in-the-mouth appliances that keep the jaw forward and the base of the tongue off the windpipe (trachea). In more severe cases, use of a CPAP device, a positive-pressure air pump that keeps the windpipe open, might be indicated,” said Dr. Tessier. So, if you or the person sleeping next to you or your next-door neighbor is snoring loudly or waking-up gasping for air, a call to Dr. Tessier’s Office for a complimentary consultation appointment may be in order. Dr. Michael Tessier’s office is located at 28562 Oso Parkway at the intersection of Oso and Antonio Parkways in the retail center near the carwash and Starbucks. The telephone number is 949-459-7212.

New Principal Named for Ladera Ranch Middle School

District officials name new principal at Ladera Ranch Middle School this week. At the start of the 2013-2014 school year, George Duarte, Ed.D. will become principal of Ladera Ranch Middle School. Duarte succeeds Karen Gerhard who will retire at the end of the school year. Duarte, currently the principal at San Clemente High School, sought the position to gain middle school experience and to take on new challenges.

Santa Margarita High Ranked No. 27 in Nation Santa Margarita Catholic High School once again made the Washington Post’s annual Challenge Index earning a ranking of No. 27 in the nation for private schools, the only private high school in Orange County included on the list. The rankings are based on the number of collegelevel tests given at a school divided by the number of graduates that year. Schools are ranked in order according to this ratio. The Challenge Index measures how effectively a school prepares its students for college, according to the Post. SMCHS is ranked alongside the nation’s top 1 percent of public schools in the Post’s annual Challenge Index. Santa Margarita moved up 234 spots from last year to earn a national ranking of 361 out of 1,964 schools to make the prestigious list. Only the top 9 percent of public high schools of the approximately 22,000 in the nation achieved a high enough standard to earn placement on the list. This is the second year Washington Post education columnist Jay Mathews has included a sampling of the nation’s private schools in the rankings as well as a separate list ranking the nation’s private schools.

Juvenile Diabetes Research Nets $450k at Signature Dream Gala More than 350 guests turned out at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel to attend the annual Dream Gala, which carried the theme “Lighting the Way to a Cure”. JDRF honored The Dream Guild and Wells Fargo for their community efforts to help find a cure for type 1 diabetes. “Since its inception, the Dream Guild has donated more than $1 million to JDRF, making it one of the most dynamic fundraising groups in Orange County,” said Linda Riley, executive director, JDRF Orange County JDRF Orange County board member Cyndi Morales, served as the chair of this year’s event, while Bill Peters, client relations director for Louis Vuitton, entertained as the master of ceremonies. This black-tie event included a cocktail reception out in the beautiful courtyard of the Ritz that included a collectible wine and silent auctions. Among some favorites were a Charger Football Team “Meet and Greet” with defensive coach Don Johnson was the evening’s most bided on item and one of my favorites - designer items including purses by Prada, Saint Laurent, Jessica Grant, Fendi, Bottega Veneta, Bally, Versace, MaxMara, they were wildly popular! Something unique for silent auction guests were BidPal devices handed out to those wanting to bid on items. Bidders had the opportunity to connect to the auction with this device or with their own smart phone. The purpose was to take the auction with you so folks could bid, donate and buy raffle tickets from anywhere at any time during the event. It was a great way to keep an eye on the item of your choice without having to get up every 5 minutes to check to see if someone outbid you, so kudos to JDRF for bringing this new technology to the event! After the VIP reception, attendees were escorted to a beautiful “dream” ball room and treated to a gourmet dinner that included baby spinach wrapped in cucumber with California berries, with California sparkling wine vinaigrette gazpacho for starters. Then the main entrée, guests enjoyed a duo of beef tenderloin in a Merlot wine sauce along with a parmesan crusted sea bass with garlic potatoes and Brussels sprouts puree with baby vegetables. The Vegetarian option was a marvelous Gnocchi with tomato coulis – oh then the dessert duo had yummy dark chocolate crunch cake with passion fruit and lemon panna cotta tart with a champagne gelee. The live auction had numerous unique experiences and luxury items. Some of the one-of-a-kind items auctioned off by Stokes Auction Group included the first pitch at an Angels game, parking and 4 Diamond club tickets available for one lucky Angels fan which sold for $3,100; Six months of shoes and a champagne lunch for two once a month for those six months, courtesy of Neiman Marcus went for $5,500; Indulgent trips to Hawaii, Thailand and Cabo San Lucas from Private Trade Winds – one lucky winner took this home for more than $20,000; and a private appointment at the Burberry South Coast Plaza Store to design your own Burberry Bespoke Trench Coat that went for $5,000. Special guest speaker Miss America 1999 Nicole Johnson shared her personal story of living with type 1 diabetes. Since her diagnosis in 1993, she has served as an advocate for JDRF and helped raise more than $26 million for diabetes research and programs. The room was silent while she spoke about her struggle, describing her early years leading up to her crowning, folks telling her she “can’t” when in fact she “can” and succeeded in everything. The highlight of her speech was special when she introduced her precious daughter helping her on stage. Johnson also has written six books about diabetes and has been honored for her work around the world. After her speech, JDRF Orange County also raised funds with its signature Fund a Cure auction, in which attendees offered direct donations earmarked for type 1 diabetes research. This auction raised $175,000 this year. Page 12

Clothing Items Every Man Needs to Dump Before Turning 30 S.W. Hampson As you get older, you will inevitably outgrow some of your favorite clothes. I am not referring to physically outgrowing your wardrobe, but rather “outgrowing” trends that you are now too old, err too mature to wear anymore. There are some clothing items and fashion styles that you have to part with, especially if you are a young man approaching 30 years old. Doing away with the following 10 clothing items ensures that you dress acceptably for your age and that your peers, potential mates, employers, and business clients view you as a serious young professional. Ironic Tee Shirts Ironic tee shirts should be shed from your wardrobe immediately before your 30th birthday. Sure, they are funny when you are in your 20s, but potential mates will think you are a perennial Silver Lake hipster if you are wearing them to the local coffee house after your 30th, or 25th, birthday. Statement Shades A good pair of Ray Bans does a perfect job of protecting your eyes from harsh ultraviolet rays. Wearing shutter shades like Kanye West does nothing to protect your eyes and may make others question your vision or sobriety. Branded Sport Coats Sport coats emblazoned with the fleur-de-lis or dragons had a brief period of popularity in the middle of the 2000s, but the fashion trend was more of a fashion faux-pas. If you are in college or partying in a nightclub on South Beach then maybe it is permissible. Maybe. Otherwise, this trend sends others the message that you are auditioning for the “Jersey Shore.” On the other end of the style spectrum sits blazers decorated with preppy crests. This may have been great for preppy themed fraternity parties, but once you’re in the “real world” you should do away with such clothing as it may signal that you are still in prep school. Skinny Jeans them after your 20s have become little more than In some circles, skinny jeans are all the rage. a memory.

Graphic Tees Affliction, TapOut, and Ed Hardy shirts have become ubiquitous in some circles. The thing is that once you start approaching your 30s, you should start realizing that you are paying a premium for a shirt that essentially advertises someone else’s brand. Why would a grown man give his hardearned money to wear clothes that do nothing but shill another’s goods? Exactly. Unless you are a brand ambassador, let someone else do the advertising for these brands. Leather Cuffs When you are young and trendy and trying to show people how “hard” you are, leather cuffs seem like a solid fashion selection. The problem is that once you hit a certain age, you should not be trying to show people how “rebellious” and “hard” you are. You know what’s hard? Working and paying bills. That’s hard and actions speak louder than words.

DALO AND REBECCA ANN DALO REVOCABLE FAMILY TRUST DATED MAY 29, 2003 AND ANY AMENDMENTS THERETO Recorded: 1/27/2006 as Instrument No. 2006000062011 of Official Records in the office of the Recorder of ORANGE County, California; Date of Sale: 5/3/2013 at 9:00 AM Place of Sale: On the front steps to the entrance of the Orange Civic Center, 300 E. Chapman, Orange, CA 92866 Amount of unpaid balance and other charges: $273,766.41 The purported property address is: 1 SHIVELY RD, LADERA RANCH, CA 92694 Assessor’s Parcel No.: 741-021-48 NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 714-573-1965 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site http://www.qualityloan.com , using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-12-532049-JB . Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address or other common designation, if any, shown herein. If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. If the sale is set aside for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return of the deposit paid.

You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 714-573-1965 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site http://www.qualityloan.com , using the file number assigned to this foreclosure by the Trustee: CA-12-531437-JB . Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the property address or other common designation, if any, shown herein. If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee, and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. If the sale is set aside for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return of the deposit paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagee’s Attorney. If you have previously been discharged through bankruptcy, you may have been released of personal liability for this loan in which case this letter is intended to exercise the note holders right’s against the real property only.
