Gracey is one of the sweetest women I know. In addition to being fashionable, she looks for opportunities to help her friends. Last month, I commented admiringly on Gracey's newest accessory -- which she calls a "lady-tie" -- and she set out on a quest to find one for me. She did!
It arrived today. It's uber-cute. To showcase it properly, I looked for clothes and makeup that complement the nice colors in the tie. What do you think? Have you ever worn one of these?
Gracey has been wearing several lady-ties lately and they look terrific. Visit her blog and see how pretty this accessory can be. Mine is from Liz Claiborne Accessories.
Oh, and on the front of Gracey's business card for her blog, it reads, "Fee Fi Fo Fum." I laughed out loud at that!
I love it! It looks just a fabulous as I knew it would. Love that you pulled in the yellow!!ReplyDelete
Beautiful! Gracey picked a lovely lady-tie. (i love her blog, she cracks me up.)ReplyDelete
Totally cute! Gracey always rocks my socks with her style. It's very deliberate, and very her every time. So glad she was able to share her latest obsession with you! Yellow is your second best color imo (after pink, of course).ReplyDelete
I love scarves around the neck and used to wear them all the time, but I've gotten so fussy the past few years that I can't handle the extra bizness around my neck... Maybe because Florida is just so hot it doesn't behoove scarf/necktie wearing.ReplyDelete
You look cute in the tank and lady tie,
I love lady ties!ReplyDelete
This one is really pretty.
Love Gracey's blog too!!!
It looks awesome and you did a wonderful job styling it.ReplyDelete
I have so many vintage lady ties like this and I love wearing them with button ups =] just really femmes them up. The makeup is beautiful as always and I'm jealous of how well you pull off yellow! Gorgeous.ReplyDelete
This is gorgeous! I am also a scarf addict, as you know, but more with square scarves. I want to try this now, it looks just right. Agree with MM, yellow is a beautiful colour on you.ReplyDelete
Oh cute! You've done it up quite playful here. But it also reminds me of the scarves (sometimes bows/ties built directly into blouses) of the 60s office-worker ladies.ReplyDelete
Me, too. I had dreams about being one of those...Delete
Isn't Gracey just amazing! I love lady ties, how is it I don't have one? I'd wear it with collared blouses, but I love what you've done here. These vibrant shades are gorgeous on you, Ally.ReplyDelete
I thought about the normal way of wearing this (with a collared blouse) but wanted something more fun, more playful. Plus, this cami draws more attention to it.Delete
Ooooh, that yellow top paired with scarf is gorgeously striking, it really picks out the yellow spots! Plus your eye-shadow matches the scarf really beautifully too! Wish I could do eye-shadow, I am rubbish at it!!!ReplyDelete
I wish I was a bit taller!ReplyDelete
Your eye shadow colour is lovely.
Lets follow each other though Bloglovin!
loving your makeup! Xo Megan, www.TfDiaries.comReplyDelete
awww... that's sooo cute! i think should try one of those. thank you both for thatReplyDelete
(I love her blog as well even being petite myself)
Love the colours in the tie... It looks like a retro little neckerchief to me, to be worn with a pussy-bow blouse maybe? Very ladylike and pretty anyway.ReplyDelete
This is darling! I could totally see it with a simple white blouse and long cardigan too.ReplyDelete
(Loving the make up!)
So cute! I've noticed these over on FFG as well, now I'm pretty much convinced that I need one, hahaReplyDelete
ooh lady ties, what a fun new accessory to play with. I bet they would look adorable with cute summer/spring dresses, especially if you played up contrasting colors or patterns. I'll have to look into these more!ReplyDelete
The yellow top is the perfect compliment to your lady tie. I've never heard of lady ties before. I wear a ton of scarves, though.ReplyDelete
I've never heard of lady ties either. It's a great idea. Like a scarf but with much less mass. You look pretty in those nice, bright colors.ReplyDelete
I WANT TO GO TO THE MERMAID PARADE!ReplyDelete
Hi, I found your blog through Jessica at Chronically Vintage, you always leave such nice comments there that I had to visit your blog. Another tall girl here, so I will have to check out Gracey's blog too. You look lovely in those colours and a lady tie is a new idea to me, I always feel my neck and collarbone too bony so something like this could be great to soften them a bit. I look forward to reading more of your posts. xxReplyDelete
Pretty lady tie. I call 'em pussy bows and I like them on everything.ReplyDelete
Gracey sent me a letter and I saw her biz card for the first time. Love! I'm writing her back on the stationary you sent me.
The yellow dress is the perfect foil for your lady tie! I've been collecting vintage mens ties lately- and looking for ways to wear them. I think your yellow frock has inspired me.... Looking good, buddy!ReplyDelete
