The SC continues to find comfort in Nelson’s closet. He had the ability to make any outfit shine! We shared a vintage tie collection; each piece was discovered within the unending cornucopia of estate sales. I stumbled upon this tie which played off the colors of his fringed vintage scarf; the tie has touches of ‘glitter’ which called for repetition in the form of vintage rhinestone earrings from my costume jewelry collection. Nelson’s black fedora was waiting to see the light of day again, and the consignment store pumps finished off the ensemble with their ‘pointy toes.’ The background of this ensemble consisted of skinny jeans, a black turtle neck and a black consignment shop blazer. In the past The SC wore vintage ties with turtle necks, tees or shirts to work and Nelson sported the ties at parties or special events. This outfit sprang to life in the early evening and its accessories provided support as I attended the preview of an art show which included the work of a friend.
