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”!
