Frivolous Fridays: Bow Ties

by Becky

Last Friday's challenge in frivolity was bow ties, an accessory so fantastical and fancy, I may have to don one more oft. The only possible accessory more sassy would be a monocle. Must add to my shopping list.

Anne Wolking, my most fabulous of coworkers, used a super snazzy bow tie as a cardigan closure.

Bow before the bow!

I clipped my bow tie in my hair. It looks like such a perfect hair bow, no one will ever have to know that it was meant to be worn ten inches to the south. I did nothing to it to transform it into a hair accessory. I simply opened up my clip-on bow tie, held it in my tresses, and snapped it shut. It has stayed put perfectly.

Here's Frédérik:

Frédérik says: "To me, bow ties are the beanies of neckwear. For the sake of the challenge, I tried putting on the only bow tie I have - the remains of a Halloween costume past. But I still felt like a cartoon and, consequently, had to bow out before something dreadful happened. Like my head falling off."


Frédérik again: "This dapper gent is my pal Rudy, seen here at the Movember Gala Party sporting his signature mustache and a bow tie. Much as I generally loathe neck beanies, I have to say he pulls off with style and class."


Mica, who blogs at Away From Blue, didn't have a bow tie. She didn't let that stop her from improvising a lovely response to the challenge, however.

I love the bow ties! Especially the ones re- purposed on the cardigan and as a hair decoration!

Rudy defines dapper and your red tie looks great with that shirt! :)

Thanks for the mention! :)


I have the PERFECT picture for the next Frivolous Friday challenge - it will be an old picture but it's a goodie! :) Looking forward to seeing everyone's hats!
