Polka Dot And Plaid!

Today is my Friday! My last day of work and it’s, “Hello Weekend!”  But make no mistake, I did not treat today like “Casual Friday”.  In fact, my coworkers would say that term has absolutely no meaning to me.  And they are correct!  Today’s breakdown:

Brown wingtip, slip-on, loafers with tassels made by Florsheim.

 Socks by Ralph Lauren.

Dark brown dress pants are a Macy’s store brand.

This blue french cuff dress shirt with the white spread collar is by Donald Trump.  I know, I know…but it was only $15!  I had to buy it…I think it’s illegal to walk away from a deal like that, seriously.  The alteration work I had to do to make this shirt presentable was insane. 

  A lighter shade of brown polka dot tie was another thrifting find for $1.  Tie bar is from Banana Republic.

Brown cufflinks…the shade of brown in the cufflinks is similar to the shade of brown in the necktie.  Cufflinks are a Dillard’s (my former employer) store brand. 

Plaid sports jacket with notch lapel and side vents is Austin Reed.

Pocket square was a thrifting find.  I think I paid $1 for this piece.
