Feminine

A bowtie on a female? Something just seems wrong about the concept. Gender roles define even what accessories are suitable for males and females. It is a bow (feminine. i think of little girls), but it is also a tie (masculine. i think of corporate businessmen). You can see that I'm wearing earrings, maybe a little lip color, and although you cannot see, I'm wearing an Audrey Hepburn shirt. I brought out the blues and reds, making it an indecisive cool vs warm. Funny how the blue is emphasized on the black bowtie, stamping it with masculinity, even though it was originally a gender neutral color.

Very creative! Well planned out as well. Did the blue automatically show up on the tie when you tweaked the colors?
