When I wrote my first post about double denim last month, I was going to jokingly suggest a bolo tie as the perfect accessory for the look. But by the time I got to that part of the post, I was seriously into the idea. Then gorgeous blogger The Shoe Girl emailed me a link to a sex-ay picture of her wearing a bolo and I knew I was on to something. So, when I found out gorgeous blogger Stacy of taffetadarlings had a bolo from back in the day, I insisted that she wear it when we went out on the town.
Stacy also has a fabulous Miriam Haskell bolo that she got at a flea market in 1986. I’m inspired! Expect to see a bolo tie in the Wendy Brandes collection soon.
Luckily, it looks like there will be a lot of double-denim wearers in need of an accessory. Jennine of The Coveted and Independent Fashion Bloggers recently did denim separates after testing the waters with a chambray dress.
Calivintage dared to don a Texas tuxedo too, while Sheila from Ephemera proved that she was a leader of the pack with a photo from 2009. As for me, I wear double denim now and then, but more for practical than fashion reasons. If I have to sacrifice a jacket to a monsoon, I’d rather it be my ’90s Earl Jean jacket than my black zippered McQueen.
