I have been seeing a lot of men's bow ties in magazines lately so I dug mine out from my many boxes of thrifted items,  took a ride to an abandoned school and shot these photos.  How do you feel about wearing menswear?

Oh, goodness, that bowtie is just adorable. I usually go the floppy bow tie route myself, but this is just too cute.

I know it's not really the point of this post, but your hair is really so FABULOUS! I am so jealous of the color and how thick and gorgeous it is! The outfit looks fab too, by the way. :)

An abandoned school is the perfect setting for your take on a professor's outfit. I love the use of a bowtie. I recently ransacked B's closet but alas he owns none :(
