She's a Dandy, Pt. 2

Here are some practical, fun ways I've found to play around with "menswear." Basically, with a combination of various hats, ties, scarves, and jackets/vests, it's easy to create a look in combination with other basic wardrobe items -- leaving room to make the ensemble as masculine or as feminine as I like. My versions always tend to have a bit of the 70's Patti Smith/Diane Keaton feel to them -- I'm not exactly an elegant Left-Bank-Parisian-Dandy like Louise and Romaine (from Pt. 1), but more of a casual, poor-grad-student-dandy.
