Even though I'm sort of enjoying the cold weather (it's such a departure from the mild LA winters I'd grown accustomed to), I have to admit it's leaving my brain in a bit of a fog. I've had these photos sitting on my computer for a few days and I just made the connection of what they all have in common. Bow ties! I suppose after seeing that Anthropologie blouse and getting it in my head that I was going to try a DIY version of it, I've had bows on the brain. I really like how they're a nod to the gender-bending ensembles of Annie Hall and Katherine Hepburn, but still with a very feminine touch. I actually bought some fabric at the thrift store last week with intentions for that DIY project but once I started sewing I realized that it was not the type of fabric that was going to drape the way I want it to. Back to the drawing board! In the meantime, I'm going to also be on the lookout for long satiny scarves to use as bow ties a la Miss Bow herself and a couple of my favorite flickr-ers.
