Dapper Days Challenge

I belong to a few fashion groups on Facebook. Most are a collection of likeminded vintage/fashion lovers who post regular photos of their daily fashions and we all get to gawk at the awesomeness of these great people. They are all wonderful folks and it’s become a close community where we can share our love of fashion and learn from each other.

A few of these groups have 30-day challenges, where you dress in a particular style and post your photos in the group. All of the “likes” are tallied at the end and there is a “winner” (I’m not sure what the winner receives accept the recognition of the group).

Anyway I decided to (sort of) join in on one of these challenges. This particular challenge was to wear a tie, bow tie, cravat or other neck wear every day for the month of March. As my earlier post Ladies in Ties states, I’ve always been a bit uncomfortable in menswear. Well I did not make it every day, but I have to say it really got me out of my comfort zone and I found that I was really enjoying wearing ties. Throughout the month I found myself really trying to incorporate ties and bow ties into my wardrobe. I was purchasing ties online and looking for them in vintage stores.

And to my utter surprise, by the end of the month I had found that I was able to create a way toย incorporat myย own feminine style wearing ties and bow ties. I now feelย very comfortable and even sexy at times wearing them. So here are some of my outfits from this challenge.

    That was quite a fashion show. Makeup and hairstyles were perfection. Somehow it seems you should be making money doing this – modeling, etc. I know it’s just a hobby – more like passion; lots of work, but lots of fun!!!! Your closet must be enormous. I was happy to see Will dressed up too on some of your adventures. Stay happy, Love, Elena
