3 WAYS TO WEAR A BOW TIE + FREE GIVEAWAY (CLOSED)

.
I've always loved how a bow tie looks, tied or clipped they just have this classy look to them which adds and extra something I love. With this said I've also seen them worn so tastelessly that I've thought "oh my what is that!" Last week I found a handful of bow ties. I passed on over a couple dozen bow ties like the one above which loops. I'm more of the clip on type due to it's convenience. Not knowing what to do with them at the time, cause I had in my mind I would cut them to make them into clip on ones, but then I couldn't come to terms with buying vintage to cut it apart, so I then passed on all of them. Some of the patterning was amazing and now, let's just say, I'm kicking myself in the butt for not grabbing them, cause come Tuesday night I had a brain fart and thought "silly Sandi you coulda totally pulled them to the end and wore 'em in your hair or on your wrist". I spotted more while thrifting recently and just had to grab them. So here you have it, 3 ways I'd wear a bow tie. I loved the one above so much (and spotted 2) that I grabbed one for me and one for you too. I also love the clip on type so how would you like win 2 vintage bow ties? I'm offering one lucky reader the chance to win both bow ties, so see the rules below, enjoy and Good Luck!

  4. I immediately thought I'd wear them like a guy and loop it around my neck so it's nestled right there near my peter pan collars! I've been seeking some at thrifts but I only find classic ties :(

  5. I would most likely wear it in a bun in my hair. I got an orange bow tie for a dumb and dumber costume I made and the strap isn't long enough to be a headband :(

    I do love your bracelet idea, it looks super cute!
