Jobbing it in Chi-city, part three

February 24, 2011
When it comes to an interview, you want your personality to shine, but not too much.Sexy, but not too sexy.
Show some skin, but not too much skin.
A little ankle, maybe some cleavage, but hey, this ain’t no free show.
Dressy, but not too dressy.
What better way to show your personality and character but through an awful ’70s-looking retro tie? Thrifted, of course.
Psh, you think I’ll pay full price for a 100% silk tie when my student loans are sky high?
Natural leather belt from URBN $4.99, Baldwin 14oz Karabo “the Henley,” American Apparel blue oxford button down, Billtornade sport coat, thrifted awful retro tie $1, thrifted diagonal stripe tie bar $1, Filson tote without zipper.

Thrifty Thursday: Brown/navy/forest striped necktie

Came across this tie in Westport, KC, for a couple of bucks. I dig the mix of brown/mustard & navy & green.

100% silk & no name brand. Skinny, too.

Style vs. fashion

February 23, 2011

Style is permanent

Fashion is fleeting

You’ll notice that I talk about style and never about fashion. Fashion comes and goes, so I don’t pay a whole lot of attention to it due to its inherent transience. Style, on the other hand, is timeless.

Hear, hear, Steve.
