Tie The Knot

For the 24 years I have been on this planet I have successfully avoided the need to learn how to tie a necktie. No one ever taught me as a child (I grew up poor and ghetto, no need for a tie!) and the one time I absolutely had to wear a tie I bought one of those tacky clip on ties. Well, last week my hospital pharmacy rotation ended and I have now started a community pharmacy rotation that has a strict dress code. This dress code requires men wearing ties. I initally began to panic. I had only two days to buy a couple ties and learn how to wear one! My first instinct was to call a friend so he could teach me, but then I realized I was being a big pussy. I knew this day was going to come sooner or later so I went on You Tube and discovered several instructional videos. It was easier then I thought and now I don't understand why ties intimidated me for so long!

Oooh! I love neckties! I learned to tie ties from my first boyfriend. I'd do a bigger Full Windsor knot for the tie you have on in the photo... but I'm always doing Windsor Knots. I even do them with skinny ties! Oh, and don't forget to dimple the tie like in fashion photos!

It's because of the lack of male role model growing up. They usually teach us how to tie ties.

Well I had a ranchero Mexican childhood. Ties? Dress shoes? Suits? Dinner etiquette? Out of the question.

Curiously enough I learned online as well a few years ago when I first started going on job interviews for reception/office positions. It's hella easy.
