I'll be honest...over the past few years I have noticed that my connection to current style has been slowly declining due to the addition of two children to my home and little time to worry about such things (hence my need to purchase the BB). So, when I got my first box with a silk tie from Nick Graham, I thought two things: (1) Wow - a tie - nice! and (2) Um...not sure the dog and crossbones is really my style. But, due to the fact that I am no longer hip, I rocked my new tie loosely over a black dress shirt with the top button undone (as per the instructions on the handy card in the box) and - wouldn't you know it - the world loved my new tie. So, there you have it - Nick Graham ties are apparently awesome and Birchbox knows what they are doing.
