Bow Tie Blouse for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: Good for Evenings
Quote of the day: “I have found that people tend to live up, or down, to your expectations.” Cathy Keiran
My perception of a blouse is somewhat dressy anyways. And I usually make us more formal by adding a leg baring piece. But this time, I thought I’d add a little more variety. Nancy got to wear a skirt, but since many women admit to not loving skirts or dresses, I had mom and I wear pants. All three of these outfits really could be interpreted as business appropriate also (just like we styled here). Another variation for these same blouses was a casual day here.
50’s Bow-Tie Blouse: Check out the print of this blouse. What fashion blogger doesn’t love a clothing item with clothes on it? The ring and necklace I won from Joyiia & Tilden (from the To Be Bright blog).

60’s Bow Tie Blouse: For this outfit, I tried to make the ties look like a scarf flowing down the sides of the cardigan.
70’s Bow Tie Blouse: Mom’s earrings are Murano glass from Venice! And I finally let her tie her ties in a bow–although I wish the bow was lower and more relaxed.
And last but not least, some wonderful print blouses of this variety:
