Apparel Breakdown.

From Neck tie to Bow tie.

Watch my instructional video here:

Tie - My tie was purchased at Old Navy of all places. Actually…Old Navy is producing greatness lately and I couldn’t pass the skulls and bones neck tie. Be sure to check out my video of how to turn a neck tie into a bow tie and save money! Cost $8.00

Shirt -A white oxford button up from Brooks Brothers from Ann’s Closet. I’ve mentioned before that I have alot of these type of shirts. It’s my safety and sorta lazy shirt. You can never fail with a fitted, white shirt. It’s a classic. Cost $3.00

Cardigan - An H&M cardigan that was on sale. It was a piece of beauty and the fit of the cardigan is absolutely perfect. Be sure to handwash and not put it on the dryer so it wouldn’t shrink. I always rock the skulls tie along with this cardigan to give off that punk/preppy edge. Cost $25.00

Shorts - These shorts were originally skinny, chino pants from ZARA but I had quite a few in my collection and I’ve been wanting black shorts. In my next youtube video, I will do a tutorial on how to turn pants into perfectly trimmed bermuda style shorts. Cost $5.00 from Ann’s Closet Thrift Shop.

Shoes - This is actually the most expensive thing here! And it’s still cheap! $40.00 boat shoes inspired by Vans. It’s comfortable, casual and cool. Cost $40.00

Final Tally = $81.00

You have gorgeous hair. Sweet video. Now I can thrift ties and they'll have dual purpose, which is like getting more for my money. Thanks.

Oh, I forgot to tell you today. You're fantastic. Did you come up with the bow tie thing yourself?? That's definitely going to be of use to me in the near future.

UGH! That cardigan, at first glance you would think this look was some typical non-chalant prep school boy look, But with those skull details, this outfit looks BADASS!
