DIY Bolo Tie

Many years ago, we might have shunned the idea of wearing bolos but nowadays we couldn’t be more obsessed with these western neckties! Worn pulled up against a buttoned up collared shirt or loose as a necklace, bolos are our must have accessory of the moment. Inspired by recent street style sightings, magazine editorials, and a few designers who have embraced this western inspired trend, we put together an easy bolo tie tutorial that we hope you’ll love.

You’ll need:
– a cutting board
– a sharp knife, drill
– a tapered stopper cork
- super glue
– 40 inches of leather or suede cord
– a button earring
– an open-acorn push nut
- a pair of closed-acorn push nuts




Charles Philip Shanghai

When my friend Suzie sent me images of these slippers by Charles Phillip Shanghai, I immediately fell in love. Charles, originally from Milan, moved to Shanghai years ago with his best friend and design partner Sheila. Inspired by their new life in Shanghai’s French Concession, the ease of the Moroccan babush, the elegance of the English gentry slipper and the freshness of striped cottons and soft colorful linens, the Charles Phililp Shanghai slipper was born. Soon to be available in select Bloomingdale’s locations, Colette, and Luisa Via Roma, you can score these puppies for only $98 a pair.
