Tie One On

Wearing Ginger’s tie to work…

Have you noticed the menswear styles that are currently being shown for women? Wingtip shoes that look exactly like men’s – worn not only with trousers, but with short skirts! While I do not consider myself the ‘Annie Hall’ or Katherine Hepburn type, I do like wearing a piece of menswear on occasion, can appreciate the visual appeal of the masculine/feminine contrast – think it’s sexy…….did not think I currently had anything in my closet along this line until I discovered this Donna Karan tie that was Ginger’s…..she probably wore it when she was close to my age…..I put it together with a feminine blouse, a tailored black plaid jacket, and a sexy black skirt….a nice blend of different styles that felt just right!

The compliment I received that was most interesting on this day was not about how I looked, but that someone was impressed that I knew how to tie the tie….of course I do, I have a son!

This is a look that would be fun to wear on the weekend….I think most of us have a white shirt, a blazer, jeans…you can borrow a tie from your man, and if you don’t have the brogues, go for a western boot or a sexy pump. Would you tie one on????
