If you've been following this blog since the beginning of the year, you probably know that my life is about to get much more busy. With a child entering my life sometime in the next few weeks, this blog will be taking a backseat for awhile, and entries will more sparse as I adjust to my new routine (or complete lack thereof).
So, in celebration (and because I'm already assuming that I'll skip next month), Style Share for March is the biggest yet. The theme this month is obviously spring, and I tried to reflect that in the items up for grabs. Lots of brighter colors, perfect for the warming temps. There are ten things to choose from (for free*), and I'll send out items to the first six(!) people to claim their items in the comments. Once items are claimed, they're off the board, but the person who claimed the item will need to contact me through the email listed in my profile so I know where to mail the particular items.
As always, the only thing I ask is that the recipient of said item of clothing email me back a photo or two of them wearing it for a follow-up post on this site.
Boom! Here goes...
Lands' End vintage OCBD in blue and pink! 60/40 blend (cotton/poly) made in the U.S.A. No size tag, but based on measurements (neck is 16", sleeve from shoulder seam to hem is 26", chest, from armpit to armpit is 21") I think it's a 16/34. This is all about spring.
Tie Rack Tie for Leonardo Strelli in a lovely, repeating inverted flower motif. Kinda deco, classy, and playful all in one.
Lands' End thick silk tie in traditional navy, with 5 bold repeating stripes of grey, green, red, purple, and orange running through it. Someone claim this and pair it up in an outfit that destroys before I decide to keep it.
Stunning Brooks Brothers gold paisley with lots of red and green. Another possible bit of lunacy on my part in giving this away.
I'd honestly never heard of Rohde Royce before I picked up this tie, but this lovely pastel flower and fruit motif in imported cotton just screams (or at least gently whispers) spring.
Older Lands' End rugby (size medium) in the most unreal color combination I've seen in ages. Seriously! Please note that there is a pencil-eraser sized bleach spot just above the neck tag on this one (you can see it in the photo) as well as a tiny (right by the left sleeve cuff, which could easily be fixed) hole on this shirt. If anyone asks, just tell them you had to clean the blood off it after exiting the scrum. Rubber buttons and all.
Another Brooks Brothers tie, this one in a nice navy / baby blue / cream pattern. Play it up, play it down.
London Fog windbreaker in cream with teal(!) highlights. Yes, it's kinda 80s, but as my dummy shows, it can still be done in style. Size is large and would probably fit a 40 - 44r just fine.
Brooks Brothers in burgundy and green linked disc motif. Crack this off with some gold cufflinks and/or a big, shiny lapel pin. Bling for spring.
Yet another Lands' End tie (I swear they're not sponsoring this, although that is an idea... hrm...) in green, purple, yellow, and red silk. If you celebrate Easter, I don't think you could ask for a better color combo than this. Fresh green lawns and hidden eggs from a rabbit.
*Seriously, it's free, and yours to keep forever. No strings attached. I won't share your name on the site or with anyone else unless you have a blog of your own that you want me to link. Please note that all clothing will be used (but certainly not stained, smelly, or damaged, as I do have standards), so please only agree to participate if this sort of thing doesn't gross you out. Thanks!
