Red Riding Bowtie

If the blog post name is not clear enough – it is inspired by the famous fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood. The protagonist of the fairy tale wore a red cape and got christened Red Riding Hood. When I put this look together – I could picture a modern day Red Riding Hood wearing a red scarf or a bowtie and carrying a big red tote, because wearing a red cape would be just too old-school.

I had recently traveled to Ooty where I shot for this Bag and Bowtie accessorized look. For those who do not know, Ooty is a hill station around 280km from Bangalore. And the temperatures were moderately low in Ooty. So on the advice of my friend, I had carried some sweaters and jackets and this particular look was a happy coincidence that just fell through.

For those who are wondering if bowties are really a girly thing, let me tell you that if you are looking to customize your look and experiment beyond just jewelry, then bowties are definitely something you should try. A collared shirt and a bowtie and a matching tote will make you stand out and with style.
