Happy Number 1 Forage Bow Ties!!!!

22 Jul

A year ago today something special was created. Shauna and Stephen of Something’s Hiding In Here launched an awesome little pop-up shop at The Curiosity Shoppe in San Francisco selling handmade bow ties from vintage fabrics.

One year on and they’ve had 7 collections of  FORAGE bow ties (with number 8 out in August), all of which have sold out or are currently very close to selling out. And more recently, Shauna and Stephen created their first collection of sumptuous Ladies Bow Ties which I coveted and then finally got my hands on. I chose the KATRINA Multi Colour Gingham and every time I’ve worn it have received nothing but love for it…..and impressed gasps when they realise I’ve tied it myself and it’s NOT a clip-on! 🙂

(Me in my KATRINA bow tie, looking particularly badass! Haha, but it seriously is my new favourite accesory and I wore it out to dinner with a friend/potential date this week…fingers crossed it has magic dating powers!)
Now here comes the really exciting part…as part of the celebrations for FORAGE’s First Birthday, I’m giving away one of the sold out Ladies Bow Ties! The JENNA Pink Gingham bow tie, pictured at the very top of this post, is one of my favourites and one of you, my lucky readers, has the chance to win win win! And this is the LAST ONE! After this is sent to you, there are no more JENNA bow ties left to buy anywhere.

All you have to do to win is leave a comment in the comments section on here with your name and email and the outfit you would wear your new bow tie with. My favourite new outfit with my bow tie is a black shirt and black skirt/skinny black trousers so the bow tie really pops! This giveaway will be open until end of day 29th July and the winner will be chosen at random just after midnight. Good luck!

And to Shauna and Stephen and FORAGE Bow Ties,

    um, for sure I want this! I’d be rocking it with the pink gingham waitress style dress I’m wearing right now! Finger’s crossed for the hot date ❤

    i would go total prep and wear it with a chambray top and khaki pants!!

    I can’t decide which one outfit I’d wear the gingham bow tie with… it’s a toss up between:
    • with an oversize shirt, pencil skirt and ankle cowboy boots for work (kind of look like a 50s waitress)
    • adding a bit of colour to my brown ’70s shirt-dress with equestrian motifs printed all over it

    Failing that, I’d probably wear it in my hair with whatever happens to be clean and near the front of the wardrobe most days!

    Oh! Love this one! I think it would look killer with a sleeveless black button up dress I have!

    I would wear it with a denim shirtdress or a colorful skirt!

    I think I would wear it with a blouse, a denim or corduroy skirt, and tights.

    I think nice business shirt,plain and simple. Let the bow shine.

    I think this could look pretty sharp with my owl jumper!

    I know that my wife would probably wear this with her brand new peter pan collared blouse from Asos with a black skirt. It would look absolutely amazing and I can’t wait to see who wins! I ❤ Forage bow ties so much! Happy birthday to them!

    I would wear it with a high-waisted skirt, a fitted button-down and some red lipstick.

    ECK! I LOVE this bow tie! If I won I would wear it with a pretty chambray button down, a high-wasited black, flowy skirt, and brown oxfords! It would be such a darling outfit!

    my gran gave me a shirt of hers from when she was younger, its would be ideal with it.

    I have the perfect blue collared dress for this bow tie – though, in all fairness I would likely wear it in my hair, head band style.
