As we ponder


Last night on my way home, I stopped in my local thrift shoppe, Out of the Closet, and picked up a few items on the cheap… one of them being a striped tie. I immediately wanted to play dress up, like a sexed up Annie Hall or something…

Since beginning my new blog The Poste Office, I’ve been looking at men’s clothing in a different light. I really love the idea of mixing stripes and colors, and learning a whole new logic to dressing. I also realized, I had no idea how to tie a tie, but I just remembered seeing it done on TV or the movies or someplace, so I just guessed. It’s really strange how wearing a tie and a vest can change the way you feel, but that’s exactly what it did for me. I don’t know why exactly, perhaps the way a pair of super high heels changes, or red lipstick changes the way you feel. There is a lot of emotional power in attire. Even if it’s for play.

Oh! You can learn how to tie a tie here.

  5. It looks great! I’m thinking about doing a dress up with my dad’s clothing for a while now! I know, it should be boyfriend instead, but he only has jeans and t-shirts so that’s boring:)
    I can’t wait to wear a huge blazer…yeah, I will def. do it, in the category of “I would never…” :)
    Lovely tie by the way. I’m sure my dad must have some interesting ones too. )

  8. I love the touch of pink lipstick ;) It’s a great hint of uber-femininity.

    Were these taken with the new camera? If so, which did you get again, and how are you liking it? I’ve been wanting to pick up a little point-and-shoot that I can carry around with me (must fit in a clutch with cell phone and keys), as the DSLR is so big and cumbersome. The quality of the images is great!

  11. This is a GREAT LOOK. have always loved the tie detail on outfits, but have not really been able to pull it off myself without looking entirely like a boy hehe
