Rose Navy

The right color on the right piece has the ability to enhance itself.  Sometimes it is unnecessary to find several different pieces with same or a similar color to emphasize the focal point:

Burning Britches

The objective isn’t to spend the most money to look your best, but to spend the least amount of money to look your best.  Take today’s look, for instance…everything was a thrifting find except for the bow tie I found on sale at Macy’s and the chinos that were on sale, as well.  The chinos were $21 and I will say that I spent no more than $50 on today’s look:

shoes

Brown wingtip loafers with tassels by Florsheim are a thrifting find.  Black loafer socks (not seen) are from Steve Madden.  Personally, I cannot wear shoes without socks without feeling a certain level of discomfort.  However, I do enjoy the loafers/drivers and “no socks look”.  Thin loafer socks help me pull off this look without enduring the discomfort of having leather actually rubbing against my bare feet.

Hump Day Stars And Stripes

Today’s color palette was inspired by a visual display I observed while shopping at the Brooks Brothers store this weekend.  By the way, I was told by the manager in Brooks Brothers that Brooks Brothers put together 550 looks for the movie, “The Gatsby”.  Wow!
