Neckties for him, and neckties for her

Thursday, August 18, 2011

What a suprise when I stumbled upon not one, but three men's designer neckties in my local op shop this week, all at $2 each. Two ties by British designer Ted Baker, and another by French designer Christian Laquoix.

But wait, there are four neckties in this photograph? The fourth tie, to the left, is not a designer brand, and is not for Mr RF, but for me. A floral tie, to give a masculine outfit a feminine touch.

Hat: thrifted, and refashioned
Shirt: gifted
Waistcoat: eBay
DKNY trousers: thrifted

My outfit has been put together for the Brotherhood of St Laurence Buy Nothing New campaign, which promotes conscientious consumption, educates people where the goods we buy come from and where they go. The challenge; Buy Nothing New in October. Australian readers take note, for there is a chance to win $5,000 as part of the campaign. Website with details coming soon.

I, along with a handful of other refashionistas, have been selected to take part in the campaign to volunteer as a stylist for a day in one of Brotherhood of St Laurence Hunter Gatherer vintage op shops. Details to follow soon!

sounds like a really exciting campaign and have fun! I like the androgynous look, very classy and stylish. The ties are fantastic, I should take a closer look at ties the next time when I'm at the thrift store.

Loving the androgynous look - mens style tailored trousers are so great, they are definitely underrated.
