Continued: Fashion bloggers Tom and Lorenzo to hit MOA Sunday

Lorenzo: It doesn’t have to be expensive or a known brand, but it should fit perfectly.

Tom: Remember this is the look people are going to see you in most often all season, especially in Minnesota. Think of it like a dress you’ll wear over and over. It should have some color and a few details like oversize or covered buttons to give it some fun and style.

Q: Your TV show recaps have become as popular as your fashion critiques. How do you choose the shows?

Tom: It’s not only shows we like, but those we feel we can contribute something to the conversation that’s not already out there. Like with “Mad Men,” which is so over-analyzed, we take a close look at the style on the show.

Q: What did you do before you got to be catty about famous people for a living?

Tom: I was an advertising account executive and copy editor.

Lorenzo: I taught culture and business at a university and also worked in fashion.

Q: How did you two meet?

Tom: At the gym. It’s such an urban gay cliché. We were giving each other the eye for a few weeks and I finally walked over to Lorenzo at the triceps machine and asked if I could work in.

Q: Do you have to be careful what you throw on yourselves every time you step out the door now?

Tom: Yes, very. People recognize us now and then. We know we’d better step it up. At Fashion Week in New York we dressed to the nines every day.

Q: Ever been to the Mall of America before?

Lorenzo: No. We’re thrilled and are definitely setting aside a day to shop.
