As you all know by now, I’ve been obsessed by bow ties lately. I seek them out, beautiful colors and patterns. They are sometimes such hard things to come by (at least the nicer ones), so when my friend generously gifted his vintage bow tie to me, I was super excited to wear it. So, this is how I showed up to work! Thanks for the bow tie and the picture xp! 🙂 In this picture: Suit & Scarf: Banana Republic Shirt: Gap Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs Dr. Q groovee bag Belt: Burberry Shoes: Converse What do you guys think about this look? What would be your modern twist to the classic black suit and bow tie? sa
After receiving my Founding Member’s pass for my sneak preview of Mr Porter this weekend, I decided to share some of the great pieces (in my opinion!) that I found on this website. Don’t forget, Mr Porter is officially launching tomorrow Feb. 22, 2011. See you all there!
Looking through GQ.com late at night and saw an article about pairing plaid shirts (LOVE them!) and dark tie (it’s a must) with your suits to make them pop and a more fresh look to them. The model for these pictures is Jason Sudeikis of SNL, he looks super cute in his get up for the photo shoot; I wonder who was the stylist for this shoot. Wearing plaids with suits is a great way of having some fun with your wardrobe and getting a bit more mileage out of all those plaid shirts we all (men & women) buy during the year. Think about it like “suiting up” with a plaid top, so Plaid Up! *Tip: Switch the suit pant with a pair of dark denim and get a great outfit for a night out or for a casual day at the office. sa
