White Trimmings

The little white detail in can brighten your entire look.  From the white french cuff and white contrast collar to the white pocket square, it can give your look an extra “pop”:

Cashmere dress socks are by Club Room.


Paisley neck tie by Geoffrey Beene.  Brass tie bar is from Hong Kong Vintage.  Stripe french cuff dress shirt with white contrast collar is a thrifting find.


White silk pocket square is by Banana Republic.


Brass lion head cufflinks are from CosmicFireFly.com.


Tan sport coat that features notch lapels, patch pockets, two button closure, side vents, and partial interior lining is a thrifting find.  White flat front trousers are by Ralph Lauren.


Tone Death

Today’s look was my take on a fresh and sleek earth tone look:


Brown cap toe oxfords by Adam Derrick To Boot New York.


Ribbed chocolate cashmere dress socks are a Nordstrom’s store brand.


Khaki color flat front dress trousers are by Calvin Klein.


Pewter color, pointed collar dress shirt is a thrifting find.  I removed the studs and went with a collar pin.

Tie Tie2 Tie3

Chocolate Yves Saint Laurent necktie was a thrifting find.  Collar Pin is by Ralph Lauren and the tie bar is by Banana Republic.


Grey chalk striped blazer is by Banana Republic…and also a thrifting find for $15 from Buffalo Exchange in Charlotte, NC.  Buffalo Exchange is like “Plato’s Closet on Steroids”!


Silk chocolate pocket square…origin is unknown.


Final Look!!

Almost Christmas…

“It’s Christmas Time!” were my exact thought when I put together today’s look.  Today, it looks as if I was suddenly hit with the Christmas spirit:

Brown wingtip dress shoes are by Saks Fifth Avenue.

Olive cashmere ribbed dress socks is a Macy’s store brand.

Cranberry trousers are by Saks Fifth Avenue.

Forest green and khaki gingham button down dress shirt is a Belk’s store brand.

Cranberry and forest green paisley tie is a thrifting find.  Tie bar is from Banana Republic.

Tan suit jacket with notch lapels and side vents, is by Tommy Hilfiger.  This is a new purchase (entire suit was $80), but I absolutely must change the buttons.  They are probably the ugliest buttons I have ever seen.  I have no idea what Tommy was thinking with those buttons.  The next time you see this piece, or the entire suit, expect to see new buttons added.

Cranberry and green paisley pocket square is also a thrifting find.

Final Look!!
