The Know: Bow Tie Knots

Via: Romwe

Have you ever been curious about the various type of bow tie knots? I love the bow tie and one of these days, I am going to learn how to do these knots!  

Nordstrom Rack have a pretty darn good selection of bow ties that have some great patterns.  Seriously, I am about to invest some free time (whenever that may be) to learn how to do these and when I do, I will share with you!

Check out my old post about the bow tie and how to wear them here: How To Pull Off Bow Tie

The Crave: Hermes Constance

The Constance was introduced to the world by Hermes in 1969.  Yes, not every bag up above is the Constance but I just find the picture so pretty.  

If the Olsen twins are wearing them, you know it's about to be big.  Don't let the size fool you! Although it looks small the bag is actually Goldie Loc perfect... not too big and not too small.  The price tag? $5900+.  Get ready to be on the wait list though.

Ran into this post accidentally at Romwe.  What a great idea! This kind of tips are so useful to everyone.  Something like a scarf can transform you outfit entirely and with minimal cost / effort.  

I actually tried out the knot in the first set of pictures above (lower left hand corner) today.  Wore a simple T-shirt, red blazer, leggings and flats.  Then accessorized it with the scarf... this guy on the street was practically running after me to tell me know cool and refreshing it looked!  How sweet!

Check these out and try them guys... You'll be surprised how well it turns out.

Design Du Jour

Inspired from the movie "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow."  The costumes wore by the leading lady of the movie, Gwyneth Paltrow, was just beautiful.  It got me thinking and so I had to draw something like it.  
This is my rendition of the classic designs of the 1940's and 1950's.

Need I say more? The coral one is really nice.  So are the sparkly ones and the black one in the far back.  Heck! I want them all.
