My friend/partner in crime Lexi and I are modeling the bow ties generously sent to me from Saint Harridan, a company which sells masculine suits for female bodies. While the exact colors of these beaus might not be the first I picked out, the general shape of the knot is highly satisfying, and I enjoy the dressiness of them with the 100% silk. The width of a bow tie can affect how substantial the knot looks, and I prefer a heavier looking knot like these provide. If you are looking for a silk bow tie, keep your eye on their site for colors you like, or tweet at them with ideas!
We wanted to showcase different ways in which you can wear a bow tie — Lexi having one just around her neck, me with mine untied, showing off the wide spread of my collar. Our inspiration for this shoot was from a fantasy life where we partied late, fell asleep in our clothes, and woke up with no hangover just in time for brunch.
