With our first serious dumping of chowdah this weekend, I certainly felt the call of the wild. Fairly certain these surfers on Long Island did too. Photos c/o The New York Times.

It’s Friday. You know what that means. It’s time for our Plaidy of the Week.
This week, we bring you the plaidies of Lark, a Vancouver boutique who are modeling Alexander Olch’s beautiful alpaca bow tie. Around town, I’ve noticed quite a few women wearing men’s neckties à la Annie Hall, and it’s nice to see how well this young plaidy sports her bow.
After three days wearing a bow tie to work, never having worn a bow tie to work before, people grew suspicious. We had a company-wide meeting at which the bow tie became a central “talking point.” For the rest of the day, the bow tie – not the man – became the center of attention. No one saw me. I’d been replaced by a glittering, gold and navy bow tie. Today’s lesson learned, if you wear a bow tie too many days in a row, and you’re not known for wearing bow ties, it will become the focus.
