Are ties just for boys? Neigh!

When I found this tie at work I couldn't not get it. I mean, it's a hand painted tie of a horse with rhinestone eyes. Need I say more?

I come across interesting ties a lot and always pass them by, Sams taste in neckwear is pretty modern so until this one it never occurred to me that I could wear them. I liked wearing it so much I picked up another 40s hand painted tie with ducks on it today! I'll save that for fall though.

Twila Jean and I went to Portland today for some thrifting, of course she found some pretties for her shop, and I found some pretties for my closet! The duck tie, a 40s sweater, and a darling polka dot playsuit you are going to love.

50s sweater, 40s shoes, and tie-The Urban Eccentric

Skirt and beret-Thrifted.

that is one killer skirt, my dear!

I have been wearing a tie to work with a button down shirt and wide legged pin striped pants. I get the craziest comments!

Aww, I love the tie with the 1940s-ish outfit! Seriously, I wonder what that tie was made for . . . it's pretty wonderful!

That is *my* tie.
***Mine***
God & his elect in their superlunary firmament created it especially *for me*, you wicked girl.
I was a columnist for a thoroughbred horse racing weekly for years and still go the track regularly.
Good horse ties are hard to get.
You've got the vintage-retro look down *right*---most other girls with retro blogs look like *trannies*.
You're better than good at it, you're *hot*.
Send me *my* tie and I'll refrain from having a *maria negra* put on you.
What a guy, huh ?
