A tie tragedy…

One of the culprits

A rabid micro of moths (yes, that’s the name for a collective group of moths) attacked my collection of ties and destroyed every single one. Oh, the humaniTIE!

April Fool’s!

Is that Trevira Polyester?! However do you afford it?!

Okay, now that that’s out of the way, I want to get to today’s tie. It is actually the perfect tie for a fun day such as today. Not because it’s green, and looks like it used to be attached to your Great Aunt Mildred’s couch, but, well, it’s a clip-on! I guess that’s my tie-based homage to April Fool’s Day. Enjoy feeling fooled!

It is from Mitzi Cravat, and the label is another hilarious instance of a designer’s trying to polish a turd…it says “ALL TREVIRA POLYESTER.” As if the word ‘Trevira’ is supposed to make someone think that it’s a good polyester. “Well, honey, Trevira sounds like a city in Italy, so it must be fashionable.” Oh, yeah, and it’s a clip-on.

Last week I talked about Thriftgeek…this one is from there, as well. They are out of their Evanston space, and will be heading down to 3858 N. Lincoln in Chicago. If you get a chance, check them out when they re-open. Susan and BJ are great, and deserve your patronage.

Have a wonderful Easter weekend. I’m off tomorrow, so there may not be an individual tie featured, but I’ll try to post a pic or two from all of my ties being moved. Such an adventure for them!

Thanks for reading…Brooke
