fash•ion (fash-uh n) | bow-ties & red lipstick

Ever since I did this shoot with Rachel a few months ago, her Tokyo bow tie has been one of my favorite accessories.  I love its versatility from using it as a hair bow, headband, accent on my bag or in this case using it as any man would wear it.  Bow ties are a menswear must and to make it a little more lady like - there's nothing better to pair with it than a bright red lipstick.

Aww! The bow tie looks so adorable on you. Not sure I could pull it off, though. And yay for Missoni for Target flats! I have a pair and I get sooo many compliments on them.

I love the shape and color of that dress and the red jacket is so cool! I love a good bowtie, I have a few from a tux rental place that was going out of business and a few vintage clip-ons!

You look so darling! I don't know if I would have the guts to wear a bow tie, but you make it work! I am envious that you snagged some Missoni flats too!

I love the red blazer and your new haircut is fab!

Ashleigh said...

Sweet!! And look at you rockin' those Missoni flats, lucky! I have a top that came with a bow tie but have never had the guts to wear it separately, you've inspired me!

P.S. You MUST plan a winery day, soooo fun!
