Don’t it make my brown ties blue?

No, I do not possess the power to change a tie, or any garment for that matter, from brown to blue. And my eyes are hazel, more on the greenish side than brown. I am simply using a cheesy 70’s tune by Crystal Gayle to call attention to the fact that it is time to celebrate Blue Tie Week, the second week of Tie Week Month here on 100 Days, 100 Ties. After being slightly disappointed with the offerings of Mad Men Tie Week, mainly due to poor photography, I will pull out the stops during BTW. You can’t stop me, you can only hope to contain me.

The Tie du Jour is from Claiborne, and it is a flowery affair. I picked it up last week at Hadassah House Resale Shop, along with another strip that will likely make the Blue Tie Week cut. I liked this hue of blue for some reason, and when I got home, I realized why: It’s nearly the same color that I painted my bedroom at the flat. So, after tonight I can pin it to the wall, and you’ll never know it’s there! Well, except for the flowers, that is. And the pins.

Still gearing up for ChariTIES Week next week, during Purple Tie Week. I’ll be a picture-takin’ fool (as opposed to just a normal fool), trying to get as many GWT (Guys OR Girls With Ties) as I can. Let me know if you can help out the Salvation Army and the Evanston Community Foundation, by donating a certain amount per PWT (sorry, forgot they will be Philanthropists With Ties) or by having a picture taken with one of my first 100 Ties.

Thanks for reading…Brooke

    ChariTIES… I’m in. Are you taking pics for a day or a week or what? Let me know, as I don’t want to lose my shirt ( or tie ) by donating with the wrong parameters in mind.
    Best, Vince
