All tied up!

I did it! I managed to wear a bow-tie without looking like a waitress/Ellen Degeneres....OK maybe a little waitressy but that would be one funky kind of work outfit...(River Island take note).

I have wanted a bow tie for some time now and to my utter glee *PING* I spotted this yellow baby on one of my Vintage hauls. OBVIOUSLY my twin sister blazerwhore.blogspot.com gave me a look of disbelief/genuine concern but eventually put the purchase down to my “unique” sense of style.

So my pride is complete. The bow tie is cute if a little restrictive and I am quite happy. Although i am not going to lie...it will have limited application in a wardrobe full of floral dresses

I do try and stay well away from androgyny as it is a VERY difficult one to pull off especially when you don’t have an excuse i.e. your sexuality or being Grace Jones.
Let me know what you think guys...should I bow out now??? 

I must say there was some truly smashing photography taking place today courtesy of Mr Sass!
