Tie One On!

Men's wear is for ladies, too!
Confession: I like a little flare of men's wear in a woman's wardrobe. I think given the right flare, the correct setting, it can totally be pulled off. Look at the popularity of "boyfriend jeans" and "boyfriend cardis." More daring to me, is neck-wear.

I received a tie from the last company I worked for. It was a left-over from an event we had hosted. I've had it for nearly 2 years. And has sat in a box, in my closet. Every now and again as I dig for something in the depths of said closet, I would open up the pristine white box, stare and sigh. If only I could figure out how to wear the pretty tie. Being chubby, I can honestly say button down shirts are not necessarily my thing. What to do?!

The gorgeous Diane Kruger.
The stars must have aligned for me. A couple of weeks ago I grabbed the tie, cut off the tags, threw on a jacket & headed to work with the hopes of being able to tie it. I have to admit- I was freaking giddy all day long. I worked the crap out of that tie. I'll even wear it again.

The Doctor knows best.
Next up on my list: sport a bow tie. Why, you ask? Well because according to The Doctor, "Bow ties are cool." Duh! Yes, I'm a proud nerd and Doctor Who fan (Whovian, if you will).

Sparkly bow ties are cool too. Find it here.
Until the day when I find a suitable bow tie, I would chime in that accessories are a great way to baby step into more traditional accoutrements. Check out these sparkly things! And throw a tie into your wardrobe. I dare you!
