If you want a pick me up this bae will serve you up an espresso with a dash of sweetness! 

 

Chai HEART Bold Bean!!

 

Meet Christopher Paul!

 

Christopher has been a Barista at Bold Bean for two years; loves Guatemalan Asodiett and has strong feelings about VELVET SHORTS! He just might be the sweetest pea in the pod!

 

 

What is your favorite BB beverage for fall?

We have an amazing Single Origin Espresso on right now, the Guatemalan Asodiett, it’s got a great honey sweetness and a smooth body. Perfect for Fall or any season!

 

What are your origins as a Barista?

I’ve worked in coffee for years on more of [the] retail side. [I] transitioned to a barista role about two years ago,  I love it, it’s completely changed my relationship with coffee.

 

What is one thing you will never wear again?

Velvet shorts, I think that’s the sweatiest I’ve ever been… :X Ya’ll velvet freaks can keep those, so soft but so sweaty.

 

What’s one thing you will never stop wearing?

Denim on Denim. I’m a massive fan of the ever versatile Canadian Tux. Wedding? Casual Party? Baby Shower? None changing ceremony? The canadian tux is your best friend.

 

How does your life influence your style?

Working with coffee has made me more of a practical dresser, it has to be comfortable and able to resist those coffee stains but I also still want to present myself decently. Fashion is great because as quiet/ shy guy it can sometimes act as the voice I have a hard time finding.

Q & A WITH CHLOE

What is your favorite BB beverage for fall?

It's typical, but there's nothing like a dirty chai, it tastes like Christmas. Luckily Bold Bean has the best one around, I started drinking it iced when I got sick of the heat and missed the comfort of the holidays.

What is one thing you will never wear again?

A padded bra.

What’s one thing you will never stop wearing?

A black skater skirt, I'm wearing one right now. It's simple so you can look as fancy or as casual as you want. It twirls when you spin and it's comfy enough to sleep in if you have to.

How does your life influence your style?

I'm a little scattered, so my style is constantly changing. But I try and dress according to the mood I want to be in. If I'm feeling down, I'll wear the brightest, bounciest dress

Tips for Styling the Basic Tee

Deant'e-Jamal Felton

Written by D. Jamal Felton (The Bandwagon Effect Content Contributor)

 

We all have those mornings where nothing is going as planned, time is fleeting and on top of all that we just can't muster up the energy to put any apparent effort into our outfit. Well thank God for basic tee's. Here are a couple tips and tricks to easily styling a basic tee without looking basic.

1. The Classic Way

Unknown-1.jpeg

Check out this girl's cheeky spin on the classic White Tee & Jeans look which never seems to go out of style. She offsets this great off-white, oversized tee with these fitted high-waisted denim shorts that are great for elongating the legs, which in this case, is necessary per her very tall, snake-skin boots that give this otherwise simple look that extra "umph". Notice how she opted for a nice and sleek ponytail which allows for her shoes to be main attraction of her outfit and eliminates any extra fuss.

2. The Casual & Care-Free Way

When you see the ever-trendy Pop-Culture Goddess, Beyonce, wearing something new you ask no questions. You just figure out how you can wear it too, and fortunately enough for you this ironic "Kale" tee is available right here courtesy of the Inventory Room. bey kept it pretty casual and care-free in this outfit with a beanie, her sleeves rolled up, and a well-fitted pair of jeans no doubt. Notice how (even though the pictures's in black and white) we can tell that she opted for a bold lip in order to refrain from looking like an ultra slouch.

3. The Creative Way

What I love most about this outfit is the creativity. This young lady takes a basic tan scoop-neck tee and tucks the front right half of the shirt into her pants for the illusion of an asymmetric hem line immediately transforming the otherwise basic shirt into something modern and chic. Continuing with the modern and chic theme, she then paired the shirt with these liquid-leather pants which steps the outfit up another level and makes it evening appropriate. Notice how she kept her makeup and shoes pretty demure taking into consideration the volume of her hair and the boldness of the rest of her outfit.
