Qwearly Dashing Week 5
The color in this image is just amazing. I’m a big fan of Street Etiquette, and this pic is no different. The contrast of the green with the white of the sleeves and the saddle details on the letter are everything. From: streetetiquette.tumblr.com

I’m a sucker for Brooks Brothers, yes, it’ true. However, this vest caught my eye while flipping through their sale items. I’ve stopped wearing sweater vests (not a real reason why, I think I grew out or argyle) but this “cricket vest” is stunning. | From: brooksbrothers.com

She draws inspiration from the southern prep style, particularly the style at her undergraduate institution at the University of Virginia. Her current wardrobe largely consists of basic pieces in natural fabrics, simple colors, and carefully tailored fits. Blake is interested in adapting classic, well-composed style to queer masculine-of-center bodies of any size.
