Today’s look really suits my personality… I’m calling it Shabby Chic….The term Shabby Chic refers to a type of interior design style specializing in a rustic or worn feeling. The image I have, is of a piece of furniture that has been heavily painted through out the years with each layer showing through the distressed edges…Shabby chic is all about mixing patterns, layering heavily, and choosing the perfect vintage piece that pulls the look together…So why not apply it to fashion…I love clothes that say something about the era they were made in or inspired from….clothing that looks old but it’s still full of character. It doesn’t need to be genuinely vintage, you can find clothing that is vintage inspired, like the distressed jeans I am wearing…Read more about these jeans by viewing the post titeled “Distressed” and “5 day Denim Run”….
For the rest of today’s outfit I wore Ralph Lauren button down shirt that I purposly left untucked and without cufflinks….I layered it with a blue and black Double RL vest and a Purple label tie that I got on sale for $39, originally $239…SCORE!! When sporting a shirt with a cut away collar you want to make sure to tie a half windsor knot with your tie…It looks best with that type of collar!! This is my shabby chic look….Enjoy
