{GBF Casual Friday} Steve Urkel

My friend Jamie is throwing a "Icons from the 90s" birthday party this Saturday and I feel compelled to dress up as Steve Urkel from Family Matters. He was much sexier than Stefan and pulled off the glasses, the suspenders, the head to toe plaid, and the snorting with nerdy confidence. I like men with big brains and thick glasses.

Yesterday, I took my James Jeans "Jojo" slouchy suspender boyfriend jeans out for a spin to a casual mid-morning Clarins spring presentation at the Bloomingdales in Westfield Century City. Every season for the past two years, fashion forecasters have decreed the return of the overalls and suspenders. And every season, they get it wrong as trepidation over the possibility of looking like lumberjacks and painters stop the masses from wearing and flaunting the trend. But I'm not going to let fear of the unconventional stop me from trying a new look. Because when it comes to style decisions, I always pick the unique, the one of a kind, the Urkel that stands a chance to leave a mark and to matter years after signing off.

  5. This deserves another one. Less replica rolex daytona thunderbolt ross involvement if any, maybe a fight scene that takes place in multiple locations as hulk can jump hundreds of miles with each jump. The last scene of the Hulk movie rolex submariner replica clearly showed banner controlling his hulk outs, that should be a main point, maybe a smart hulk? Give him a villan like the absorbing man or the replica bags wrecking crew. The Leader would have to do something big in order for the hulk to get involved. HE joins the Avengers to help against the 5 rings. In the process the Leader, unknown to anyone, takes over Hulk's mind and makes him do his bidding. They defeat the 5 rings but, then must bring down the Hulk who is on an incredible rampage of destruction via The Leader's mind control. The movie ends with the climatic battle between the Avengers and Hulk where Banner reveals that he was not in control of Hulk and felt like someone was in his head.
