Dances With Wool

Last night, we received our first bit of snow for the season.  Although the snow did not stick to the ground, the hawk did not let up this morning.  Cold weather calls for layers and heavier garments:

Vintage Dope

This installment of Vintage Dope is brought to you by yours truely.  Someone said to me once, that the color brown is so 1970s.  My reply was, “So it is…but what’s wrong with the 70s?!?!”

Every piece that make up this look is from a vintage store somewhere in America, except for the grey turtle neck sweater by Banana Republic and the brown Magnanni boots.  Jacket is a purchase from Hong Kong Vintage Clothing in Charlotte, NC.  The vintage Brooks Brothers trousers were purchased at Design Archives Vintage Clothing in Greensboro, NC. 

This is my love for the 1970s.

Patch Work

As I struggle with officially letting go of the Winter and embracing the spring, I took a more aggressive approach towards the bow tie today.  The bow tie is usually for formal-looks, sleek looks, and distinguished looks…but can it be rugged?
