Yesterday I felt inspired to wear this men's tie. I've been collecting a number of them to make my flourish accessory designs. I'd put this one aside, feeling it had a special somethin' somethin'.
It brought up memories of my Grandpa. He was such a gentleman. In his winter years he would still wear a tie when we came to visit, even if it was with his checked flannelette shirt. I found this completely endearing.
I paired it up with some favourites from my wardrobe. My fabulous white winkle pickers. Bought these a few years ago, at a sale on the way to do my tax at the accountants.....as you do!
A vintage pin that makes a perfect tie pin, and my newby bag. An op shop find for $4. I love it. It's the perfect size for my goodies and it fits over my shoulder and under my arm with so much comfort. And I have my hands free without it slipping off.
So tell me. Have you been brave and worn something a little outside your comfort zone lately? I felt a little stretched wearing this tie out, but it felt so right. So I decided to wear it with confidence cos I loved it!
