One of the fun things about blogging is that at times it pushes ones creativity in experimenting with different things. As such, when Versum offered me a piece out of their bow tie collection and my eyes caught the cat bow tie. Getting over the initial thought of how would a girl wear a bow tie, it really didn’t matter anymore – because the cat bow tie had spoke to me. Meow. Well it spoke to the inner crazy cat lady in me. And aptly named ‘toronto’ – how could a cat loving girl who grew up in Toronto refuse? I also really like the fact that Versum is local (in Toronto) and the bow ties are handcrafted right here – making me feel like I was part of something special.

Given a bowtie is somewhat formal wear I tried to think of a fun – yet practical way a gal could wear one. Couldn’t think of a better way to style it than with pink…and of course as I write this I realize that I haven’t addressed the fact that I have pink hair in these photos. Well the truth is I didn’t go back to blonde by choice, so when I had an opportunity to participate in the L’Oreal Colorista campaign I jumped at the chance to try a pink shade. So that’s how the pink hair came about (more info on my Instagram). To complete the look I added some fun accessories: faux fur stole, white fishnets and burgundy velvet ankle boots. This feels like a perfect look for cocktails. So no better time to channel the inner crazy cat lady in me than now; with a pink dress and pink hair…and a cat bowtie.
