I Wanna Bow Tie



I was on the hunt for a cheap bow tie today, but Macy's doesn't even carry them and Sears only had a tacky black clip on (aka an attached bra strap).

My shopping trip wasn't all bad though. I got a little boy's leather belt at Sears and a rubber spatula from Williams Sonoma.

Boy's belts are the perfect length for cinching at the waist because you don't have to worry about all that extra belt flapping around. And those rubber spatulas rock because they're easy to clean! Next up for the kitchen is a new rice cooker that doesn't make the rice stick to the pot (they do exist, my mom owns one).

wow that's such a beautiful pic. I think bow ties are really cute, but i'm not sure i'd have the nerve to wear one :p

That picture is amazing. I've been looking for a nice bowtie too. It's a shame how lazy people are when it comes to those kinds of things. I think I might just get one tied to an elastic for the time being so I can wear it on my wrist or in my hair.

MR style- I've seen some of the Alexis Mabille bow tie stuff. I was so excited when I read about it so I had to google it and check it out for myself. If only I had an unlimited supply to money!! :)
