All wrapped up in a bow.

Neck..... 153

I  favor the androgynous look, so possess quite a few ties, bow ties, tie pins, ectera.. in my drawer. I would normally wear them with my shirts, which of late, I really haven’t been wearing as much, and I thought it was a shame to have so many ties, just lying around. Then it dawned on me that I could wear them with dresses and tops, and that’s when the fun and games began.

This roll neck knit dress, was a practical addition to my winter wardrobe, it’s warm, cozy, and easy to throw on. However, I always felt it needed a little hmmm, Je ne sais quoi, to jazz it up. In my attempt to do so, I took an old necklace, which I still like ,but somehow no longer wore, and pinned two corsages to it, hence the neck piece below was invented. Now I see my knit dress as a blank canvas on which to build upon, happy days.

I am still perfectly the act of knotting a tie, so sometimes, I just wrap it around and finish with this simple big tweed brooch. – (I like the contrast)-

As good as knotting a tie gets for me. I actually quite like it loose and astride.

All ties were brought from Asia, but you can get them from many shops in London. Better still, borrow, your dad’s, brothers, boyfriend’s …..(Ask first, of course *-*)
