It’s a @TopflightHall Bow Tie Wednesday

Good Day, My People.

Today, I want to share a Highlight of one of my clients. He’s a huge supporter of TFHApparel.com bow ties and has been supporting since I’ve opened a shop on Etsy. He’s incredibly stylish. I just love the way that he incorporates color and floral into his wardrobe, giving it a manly edge. Here’s @Topflighhall (IG), his TFHApparel.com Botanical bow tie, his soles and socks. It’s Bow Tie Wednesday at Nikkipanache.com. Heck, every day is bow tie day, if you ask me!

Here are a few pictures of @topflighthall.

Check him out on Instagram. He’s got style, and he gives his audience a daily of dose of styling options. So very cool.

The 12 Days of Christmas with The Female Haberdasher’s Bow Ties

On second thought, inundating you guys’ inboxes with bow ties would be a bit bunch. But I’ve been tweeting my 12 Days of Christmas Bow Tie Special. Here’s an update.

On the 1st Day of Christmas, I designed the Southern Gent which was inspired by my southern influence.

On the 2nd day of Christmas, I designed Winter because Charlotte looks nothing like a Winter Wonderland and, I needed to see snow. In this tie, there is abstract snowflakes pattern. So much for Christmas in NJ. Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen.

On the 3rd Day of Christmas, the nation mourned a tragedy. We lost 27 people in Newtown, Connecticut. Mostly precious children. I didn’t post at all. Yet I designed the Purple Heart for all the brave souls we learned about that day.

On the 4th Day of Christmas, I attended #asummitchristmas (find these wild tweets by using tgis hashtag) which was coordinated and hosted by Carolina alumni. It was the BEST party I attended all year. And I attended a lot of parties this year so … There were over 70 people at this house party. Homemade liquor, food, hookahs … a party. And folks sported their tacky sweaters. This could’ve been my tacky bow tie. I instead left this at home and went in a sparkly gold tunic, leopard black print/black jeans, and gold heels. Oh and a blazer. Just in case you were wondering. Anyway see my Tacky Sweater Bow Tie. Ain’t it a beauty?

On the 5th Day of Christmas, I designed a custom black and red bow tie for a client in Atl. It’s a reversible made with canvas and taffeta. It’s so hot. Watch how I tied it here.

On the 6th Day of Christmas, I’m not going to lie to you, I was negotiating deals with another bow tie designer. And I went fabric shopping. The store was still out of my herringbone. So annoyed. But a few fellas had been inquiring about bow ties I had on-hand especially The Modern Outdoorsman. Truth be told, I have a sample that I will not sell. But I decided to put this tie up for rent. No new bow tie design here. Just a popular piece put up for rental.

On the 7th Day of Christmas, I went fabric shopping for more Christmas–themed colors. And my ATL client wanted a matching pocket square. The Female Haberdasher received more hits online, emails, and so forth about more custom bow ties. I’m on crunch time. And when you’re the only one picking out fabric, sewing bow ties, marketing, advertising, and so forth, it gets too be a bit much when the orders roll in. I’ve been managing. But I need so help!! But anyway, here’s the pocketsquare and bow tie set together.

On the 8th Day of Christmas, I designed a custom bow tie that hasn’t been revealed because it’s for an event tonight. So I hate to keep you in suspense, but check back tomorrow. This bow tie has four different lapels! Talk about complicated. But it’s dope! Here’s a single style pattern of it. Christmas Polka dots with a strip of red down the middle.

On the 9th day of Christmas, I found myself  back at the post office in a long line. And believe me, I’m grateful.  I’m thrilled that people are loving my bow tie designs.

Furthermore, I did more fabric shopping and thought to myself that another reversible is in order. So I’ve put a few different patterns together. All poly fabric. Will post this bow tie tomorrow, between fabric shopping and the postal office errands, of course. I gotta get these bow ties shipped before the holidays. That’s how much I appreciate my customers. More tomorrow, so tune in then for more pictures and more designs.

The Southern Gent Bow Tie| 1st Day of Christmas Special

The Southern Gent Bow Tie

 

Sweet Tea. Honey. Lemonade. Vintage wear and patio living. These are a few images that come to mind as I pour all over The Southern Gent. As you can tell from The Modern Outdoorsman, I’m truly inspired by my southern -sphere and enjoy some elements of country! And this beautiful bow tie striped in navy, rose, cream, and green says, “C’mon ovah and have a look.” Here’s the first of twelve limited-edition bow ties for TFH 12 Days of Christmas!

Well, whadd’ya think? Lend me your feedback on the comments section below. And if you have inquiries, please direct them to my mailbox– nikki@nikkipanache.com. I can’t wait to reveal the others.

“This oughta be fun.”

Women Wear Bow Ties

20121121-145108.jpg

I’ve been asked repeatedly about women wearing bow ties. “How do you wear it?” Answering this question varies from female-to-female. For me, I like to play up my more girly, feminine side. I love lots of color and floral patterns.

Below, I styled together one of The Female Haberdasher floral bow ties–“Lucie“–with a gray shirt that has a bit of a collar, a black Banana Republic Blazer and Levi’s boyfriend cut jeans. The shoes: Franco Sarto Mary Jane.

This is my casual look for a day about town. Tell me what you think.

The Bow Tie Shop by The Female Haberdasher

20121029-105404.jpg

Morning, my people. I have great news. I’ve recently opened my online etsy bow tie shop labeled The Bow Tie Shop by The Female Haberdasher and wanted to share such a milestone with my lovely followers.

For the past few months, I’ve been designing bow ties that have a certain avant-garde flair. And they’re becoming an IT item for bow tie connoisseurs who follow me on social media outlets, from CLT to NY, CA, and across seas.

All the bow ties that I–The Female Haberdasher— design are handmade out of handpicked fabrics including that of cotton, silk, polyester and more. I shop local for my fabrics, so they’re one-of-kind and difficult to find.

I–The Female Haberdasher–will continue to add more styles each week. So there’s something cool and new that should keep you talking and coming back for more.

Well, without further adieu, here’s the link to my online shop. There’s a reserved spot for custom bow ties if you’re looking for something a bit more individualized.

You may also use Request button found in the left margin for other bow tie design requests.

Want to share the link? Copy and paste it. Your love and support is always greatly appreciated. http://etsy.com/shop/thefemalehaberdasher

Xo, PanachERS. Enjoy The Female Haberdasher online bow tie shop!
