Behind the Scenes with Rue’s Most Stylish Fathers

Part 3: Senior Web Designer Dom talks about his budding fashionista

 
In preparation for Father’s Day, we’ve recruited five of Rue’s most stylish dads to share their thoughts on fatherhood, fashion, and more. Read on and check back. Every other day, we’ll spotlight a new dad right here.

Rue La La Senior Designer

What’s your daughter’s name and age?
Her name is Stella. She’s only 15 months.

What’s your favorite thing about being a dad?
Picking my daughter up from daycare. The expression on her face is indescribable.

Do you have a Father’s Day tradition?
Belgian waffles with strawberries and whipped cream.

How would you define your style?
Blue jeans, sneakers, button-fronts, and bright accent colors.

Does that style influence how you dress your daughter?
At 15 months, Stella hasn’t exactly developed a style just yet. But she does have favorite colors: pinks, purples, and yellows.

If you could receive any gift from our Father’s Day gift shop, what would it be?
Canyon Ranch® + Miami = date night.

Papa’s Got a Brand New [Insert Gift Here]

Need an idea for Father's Day? Here's what Rue Associates have planned

 

Father's Day

“Dad’s known to break out the air popper for movie night. Never a dull moment!” –Krysten M., Event Producer

“Dad is the grill master, but sometimes the weather doesn’t cooperate. This pan would be ideal for those not-so-perfect days.” –Nicole L., Coordinator, CRM

“Dad always makes me breakfast smoothies when I visit. This blender is sure to keep the tradition alive.” –Kasey R., Assistant Event Producer

“Not only did I learn everything I know about cooking from my dad, but we also share a love of cooking gadgets. Looking forward to all the delicious paninis to come!” –Ellen G., VP, Talent

“My father-in-law and I share a passion for wine. He always has a glass with dinner, so this chiller would be a perfect gift for him.” –Katie D., Junior Designer

“My father and I share a good sense of humor – especially when it comes to movies like this classic.” –Eric G., Corporate Development

“My Dad almost always drinks his beer with ice (it’s never cold enough!). These would chill it to the perfect temperature, without watering it down.” –Brianna L., Junior Copywriter

Our What Dad Wants: Sports, Cooking, & Art Gifts Boutique opens Tuesday, May 28, at 3PM ET.
