The Weekly Bow Tie

This is something that caught my eye the other day while I was pretending to be paying attention in class. It’s so simple and so stylish that I couldn’t help but not post it up for you all to see. The classic v-neck sweater with a twist! Once again, you can never have too many sweaters! This sweater is definitely one that I would consider as a casual choice though. You couldn’t really wear a collared shirt with this sweater since it has a little one already. Nevertheless it’s still major! And how great is the color?? I want this…Screen Shot 2012-12-06 at 11.35.33 PMBurberry Cashmere Raglan Sweater $995

What I Want Wednesday


What I Want Wednesday
(WIWW) is a weekly feature on Bergdorf’s & Bow Ties. It is a collection of carefully curated pieces, falling together to create the most flawless of all wardrobes…

The weeks piece is the Chloe Crepe Dress With Necktie Pin ($2195). It is simple and elegant and something that Kate Middleton would wear. The Necktie Pin creates a stunning accent to the classy gown. Perfect for those cool winter evenings, and can definitely been accented by a pair of shoes. No need for a necklace though, you don’t want too much attention to the neck. This simple piece is definitely what I’m wanting this Wednesday.

Marc by Marc

I love Marc Jacobs. I don’t know how many ways I can express my adoration for everything in the Marc by Marc Jacobs collection. I wish I lived in a city like New York where I had access to clothes like these. We have a Holt Renfrew downtown here in Edmonton but it’s in desperate need of a facelift in every sense of the word. 
Marc by MarcThere’s a piece for every style in this line. These are by far my four favorite outfits. They’re all so different. Every guy has to have a a good grey sweater in their wardrobe. You can do so much with a a sweater like this. As you can see above, you can keep it casual with a pair of boots and brighter coloured bottoms. (Brushed Cashmere V-Neck Sweater $328)

In case you didn’t know, I’m a fan of tank tops on guys and a lot of my friends will agree with me on that point. Nothing looks better than a nice striped tank top (sigh.. makes me think of summer) and it’s even a plus when the guy has nice arms 😉  (Van Stripe Tank $78)

You can never go wrong with a simple black pea coat. Perfect for the first bite of winter and when worn with layers, can work all winter! I have a jacket similar to this one (not Marc Jacobs, sadly) and it literally works with everything you could possibly imagine. Definitely a must have in every guy’s closet. (Leo Coating $648)

Finally we come to the denim look in a casual button up style. This has definitely grown on me. I think I was turned off of this style because the first time I saw someone wearing a denim styled top he was also wearing jeans… it was a denim overload and I was afraid. Paired with a pair of neutral pants this is the perfect look for a night out to a club or with friends for a casual dinner. (Leo Shirting $238)

Sidenote… I need to find these boots! Any ideas?

Dreaming of a White Christmas

I was on the Saks Fifth Avenue website today browsing through some of their lines and I came across these amazing pieces. How great are they?! Amazing casual choices that still look nice and put together. All I really want for Christmas is clothes & I can definitely tell you that they’re on my dream wish list… Take a look!

Xmas list 1

I need both of these tops. The blazer and the jacket are everything. Pairing the grey blazer with the light green bottoms was a brilliant choice, how amazing does it look? It looks sooo put together, something I would hope to see on a first date 🙂

Xmas list 2

Great colours and everything looks so put together! Now if only every guy could dress like this! How happy would I be?! How happy would everyone be? There would be a lot of happy people. Happy Monday everyone!!

Brrrrr-berry

Nothing says class like a Burberry coat. Whether is paired with a suit or with a casual outfit they look extremely sharp and put together. Normally I’m not a huge fan of Burberry for clothing but as soon as I saw these coats on the Saks website I knew I had a new topic to write about!

Short Duffel Coat $1660            Osbert Shearling Collar $1245

The Short Duffel is perfect for a casual day out shopping or going for a coffee when paired with a nice scarf and a pair of dark wash jeans. The Shearling Collar can double up as a heavier sweater as well for those chilly days we all know and love here in Canada.

Sotheby Moleskin Coat $1450         Single-Breasted Trench $1245

The single-breasted trench should be a staple in every man’s collection of jackets. It’s a classic style that will always be in demand. Once you spend the money on one you will never have to spend the money on it again! I can definitely say that at least two of these are on my wish list!

What I Want Wednesday

What I Want Wednesday (WIWW) is a weekly feature on Bergdorf’s & Bow Ties. It is a collection of carefully curated pieces, falling together to create the most flawless of all wardrobes…

This piece comes from the closet of Piazza Sempione Poppy. An elegant combination of fuchsia and white this piece will stand out at any soirée. Pairing it with a suede shoe is the way to go; you want to draw attention to the dress, not your shoes. Pull your hair up of your face to show off your collar bones and pair it with a set of dangling earring. This is definitely what I want this Wednesday.
