Starting a photo blog.

Post by Leora Lane on Wed Oct 04, 2017 1:04 pm

Hello!
Hope it's ok to post here. 
My husband is a regular visitor here, and suggested that some people might like my new blog, "Leora Lane Shirt and Tie".
Basically, my husband has convinced me to wear shirts and ties practically every day, and so to make it more fun we've decided to share photos of the outfits, to see if anyone would like looking at them, and take it from there! (possibly moving on to videos too.)

I've explained a bit more on my blog, along with some trial photos. I'll share a link soon if that's allowed. (once the 7 day link ban has passed!)

Thanks for letting join the forum!

All the best.

Hi! Thank you!
I tried to post a link last night but it said new members weren't allowed to share links until 7 days had passed. 
(to save loads of spam I guess!) Still, I think some people must have found it on google as my blog views shot up yesterday, haha!!

By the way, I was reading in awe your post about your wife giving you the birthday surprise at the hotel! She sounds an amazing and inspiring lady!!

Maybe you could convince her to start a blog or photo account too! I bet people would love to see her! (if you could bear to share!!)

Ah, it is kind of hard to find! Try googling "LeoraLaneShirtandtie.wordpress". It might come up!

Where can i find your flikr account?

I'll see if I can just post a picture straight onto here...

Was kind of going for a vampy look with the red lippy today!
Also, still learning to tie my tie properly! How does it look?

My flickr is tie-fetish-2011, pics with blacked out eyes are my wife.

Your tie is well done, collar a bit loose BUT I'm guessing you have a hard time finding collars of a small enough size.... Most ladies do!

Thank you Oluf! (It's a bit nerve wracking posting them, so the compliment means a lot!)

tie-fetish-20011, thanks, i'll take a look for your Flikr!
And yeah, this is a kids shirt and it's still kind of big!!

Found your Flikr!!
That's quite a collection of pictures! Loads of inspiration for different looks too. (You have a very eclectic appreciation of shirts and ties!)

Glad you found some inspiration!

Waiting to see more!

For me a good close fitting collar and snug firm Windsor knot are a winner every time! Smile

Can I ask why you personally find the close fitting collar so desirable? Is it the mostly the tidy look, or is it knowing the lady can feel that it's tight? 

Also — stupid question,  but are ties pretty much unisex, or are men's and women's ones different?!

Thank you so much! My husband and I have a new found love of shopping together now, looking for new shirts and outfits! (we were never ones for clothes shopping before!) 
Thanks for your compliments too!

OK... so, the collar thing, when the collar looks loose its kind of "why bother" I suppose? It takes away from the smartness of the look and if you look sometimes even if the tie is tight it squashes the collar line and makes it look messy, a nice close fit (not too tight because nobody wants to be strangled and the lady will wear it longer if comfortable I suppose??) looks better and a smarter look, also I do like the thought that she "knows" shes wearing a smart collar and tie, if the collar is close fitting and knot if its a nice plump firm windsor will be felt by her especially if she looks down. I do like to look down during "fun" times to see this look and the collar and tie knot move with head/neck movements....

Ties are pretty much unisex.... depends how tall you are on what kind of width will be shown?

Your husband is a lucky guy!!

Are you in the UK btw??

Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the reply! (To be honest I just love hearing why people love tights collars, it makes them more exciting to wear! And wow — I'd never really considered the amazing view when "looking down!"
I am shopping for more shirts today, and ties. I am in the U.K, so any recommendations would be helpful! (i'm only 5ft tall!) Hopefully if we're successful my photos will start to improve! Have you found my blog yet? It's getting a lot of traffic since posting about it on here!!

Leora you are amazing!! I have just seen the picture in your blog its fantastic but if your tie's length could be a bit longer (like the large tip of it few cm below the line between your shirt and skirt) would be even better. And if you could share more than few pictures with different angles and the whole outfit (included shoes etc.) could be heart-stopping Wink

Thank you so much for the feedback! I really appreciate the advice on how to improve the overall look! To clarify, do you mean the tie should sit longer than the shirt? I bought some new ties today so will practice with them and upload some photos! I'll try and get a few more angles too!
Thanks again!

I think generally the rule is that the tie should end just below the bottom of the shirt but below the bottom of the belt, or where the belt would be:)

Wonderful blog!

Hello Leora, thank you very much for setting up this new blog, which is just brilliant! I'm also a huge fan of female in suit and tie as well as wearing the outfit myself. I got a huge collection on this topic and perhaps you would like to have a talk if you need some inspirations. You are very welcome to pm me in the forum or visit my ins page: inezhynes. Again thanks for the new blog and keep going! moderato926

No, it doesn’t look any shorter than skirts you’d see in many offices, so I’d say it’s about right:)

Thank you! That's reassuring to know! I think it would also look nice with a longer pencil skirt. My husband wants to take me out in a long tie and pencil skirt today! (and later in a bow tie to the cinema!)

Hi all! I had a really fun day on Thursday, wearing shirt and tie all day, even out in public for a change! It was my first time out in a proper tie! I've written about it and shared photos here :
https://leoralaneshirtandtie.wordpress.com/2017/10/13/out-and-about-in-shirt-and-tie/

Above is a sneak peek Smile Would love to know what you think! 
Have a great weekend everyone!

Hurray! Thanks! I'm so happy to have found a nice fitting shirt with a good collar!
I'm not very au fait with types of knots yet, so I'll have to check some Youtube tutorials!
I'll definitely give it a go!

Have just been looking at Windsor knots. They do look very smart and even!
I've just looked and found some women's shirts with spread/ wide cut collars. Just worried they'll all be too big for me! Might order a tailored one from this site i just found..! Has anyone used them before? https://www.sumissura.com/en-uk/women/custom-dress-shirts/personalize/?step=extra
