Once more into the breach, dear readers, as 2013 gets well under way. I hope you enjoyed wonderful holidays, whatever your celebration (or non-celebration) of choice, and wish you all the best for the New Year. And now…
The people have spoken – well, all two of them – and the results are in: outfit posts. I still intend to bring interviews, features, and anything else comes to mind, but this year I resolve to bring you outfit posts on a semi-regular basis. I hope you’ll bear with me as I get work the glitches out - I’m not much of a photographer – and do a little more housekeeping around the blog over the next few weeks.
By popular request, then, let’s do this thing with the year’s first outfit post. Alas, no bourbon was involved in the making of this post, despite the title. That’s not false advertising, by the way. That’s just what it takes to pun, sometimes.
Shirt: Ring of Fire "Irvington"
Jeans: Reuse "Protect"
Clogs: Troentorp "Audubon"
The Reuse jeans, you might recall from a past post, are notable not only for being stylish, but for being made from recycled textile waste in China. Eco-jeans, yeah! And the clogs are from a venerable Swedish clogmaker, Troentorp, whose designs consistently strike a balance between the traditional and the contemporary, resulting in a timeless look.
Unfortunately, I can’t tell you much about the belt buckle. I can’t even remember where I bought it. But it consistently is a compliment-getter. And it’s not the most garish buckle I own, by far. The trick to wearing it, as with any particularly attention-getting buckle, is to avoid monochromatic outfits in which the eye has nowhere to go but straight to the buckle and, ahem, associated region. Belt buckles, if you please, not cod pieces. Words of wisdom, there.
I’ll feature more of my wardrobe’s new arrivals in future posts. In the meantime, what new fashion goodies did you get – either as a gift from others or a gift to yourself? Leave a comment or, if you have a blot post, share the link!
