districtofchic 's Thoughts:

I’ve always been a fan of ties on women, but I find the trend a bit tricky to pull off without looking like I’m wearing my dad’s old tie. Thankfully, Elissa told (tweeted) me about the genius that is “the Lady Tie” sold at local gem, Ginger Root. How I lived without these in my life up until this point, I’ll never know. It’s the perfect cravat/necklace/scarf hybrid. You can view the gallery more Lady Ties here.

A couple weekends ago, I took a trip to Ginger Root to see what other goodies they had to offer and I wasn’t disappointed. In addition to the much-coveted Lady Ties, they carry vintage accessories, jewelry from local lines like Claranette, and custom pieces by ReVamp, made from repurposed vintage fabrics. I particularly liked a corset fashioned from a vintage sheets and jacket linings and a beautiful jacket with built-in handkerchief-like detail in the pockets! The possibilities are endless here and the ambitious (or curious) shopper can become a designer, too, with the weekly sewing classes now available. I have to admit, I could stand to learn the basics!

I’ve been needing a watch since I lost my last one in college. Sad, right? I found this one in an antique store in Cloudcroft. I don’t think it’s a particularly nice or notable brand, but I like that it looks like a feminized men’s watch.
