Happy 2011 everyone! Decided to kick off this year with a post that would make more sense if this was 40 years earlier, stuck in the 70s as usual. Perpetual 70s dress-up has allowed me to relive problems that have not faced mankind for generations, like muddy bell bottoms.

My dad got me this western tie when he and my mom were out of town. I never used to like the way a western tie looked with anything but a collard shirt, but lately I've been wearing it over tee shirts and between jackets and I haven't had a problem with what I've seen.

Heading to LA tomorrow - will be sure to report back with some cool finds!
