WHAT I WORE: Distinctive Designs by Tomira Bowtie

Monday, October 06, 2014

I love a good bow-tie. Yes, I'm a female and I love wearing bow-ties. In fact, I love wearing a lot of menswear inspired pieces from vests, to oxfords, to houndstooth and bow-ties. This particular bow-tie was gifted to me by jewelry designer, Tomira White, of Distinctive Designs by Tomira. I met Tomira a year or so ago at an event hosted by Sumptuous Sulay at the Ultimate Dressing Room boutique. I purchased a pair of earrings from her collection, and hosted a giveaway on my blog for a pair of her earrings. We've been following each other ever since. Tomira so kindly gifted me with this fabulous red leather bow-tie to wear during New York Fashion Week.  Come to think of it, I wore a bow-tie to New York Fashion Week last year too! I wanted the bow-tie to be the focus of my outfit, so I paired it with a solid black romper from Forever 21. I like to add belts to my look to give the illusion of an hourglass figure and accentuate my shape, but surprisingly I didn't pack belts for NYFW. I had to steal this belt off of a multicolored romper I packed as backup. I actually love the finished look with the red bow-tie and the yellow belt against the backdrop of black.  I apologize for the quality of the photos. By the time I had time to take outfit shots it was nighttime and the lighting in the hotel was not the best :-/.

I love the white top-stitching on the bow-tie!
