I recently bought a black bow tie but now I think I look like a waitress if I wear it with a white shirt... any ideas on how to change it? "bedazzled" it or something?

I bought amazing cream patent platforms to go with an outfit, but they don't go with anything else at all! I really want to modify them so I can wear them with other things. Thought about spray painting but the paint would crack, I'm sure, and I can't think of anything else, anyone got an idea?

Ohh that's a really good idea! I didn't even think of that, I love peter pan collars. And btw, good luck on your bow tie! I really like the spiked inspiration picture you posted.

ScarlettLover Ouh that's so cool, minimalistic and original. Love it.

And thank you akinimod, I can tell you where my husband bought the tartan if you like.

And those bows, aren't they awesome ? DIY is such a great way to have unique and beautiful things, I love it.

yellowetpink : Do you have a photo of your shoes ? It would be easier to help you. Thanks.

I finally got around to customizing my bow tie... I ended up doing a few colored studs cause I wanted to add some girliness and didn´t want to weight it down too much.

Oh you already did it? I was going to suggest puttin lace over it. I have been in love with these forever, when my hair grows I might do it myself.
