.friday finds: shop of the month.





Meet Star White (I know, cutest name ever, right??) She graciously accepted being our Shop of the Month this month. Her little shop is full of awesome bow ties for pretty much any occasion (as you know, I'm a huge bow tie fan). You can also get them custom made for a wedding, date, or birthday present. (Heyo!) She also is a huge thrifter...I mean really. She dresses really fashionably and most of her items are thrifted. (Which I am also a huge fan of!) So, along with cute (I mean, manly) bow ties, her store has some thrifted scores she's found here and there. You should definitely check it out HERE



The interview is after the jump!



What style is your shop?

    I have 2 parts to my shop, one part with all hand made bow ties, and the other part with vintage treasures. I'm not sure what what the 'style' of my shop is, other than I just love bows and I love vintage items so I combined them on one shop!

What's your favorite item in your shop?



   That is a hard one! I just love all the bow ties I make, but the vintage pieces always take the win for me. I've had 2 coats up on my shop with fur collars and both of them are just fabulous. I love classy pieces that are timeless and elegant. It's fun for me to imagine the previous owners and what adventures they had in such fun coats!

 What inspired you to start making bow ties?



   My own wedding! I couldn't find bow ties in my wedding colors ANYWHERE so, the crafter in me decided to tackle the feat myself! I ended up loving the product and wondered if other brides have the same problem. So, I opened up my etsy shop and have had the chance to make bow ties for weddings all across the world! It's fun to know I am a small part of someone's big day!
4. Yes! I have a fashion blog where I post my outfits and ideas on how to style primarily thrifted clothing. I also feature my bows and vintage items on that blog. www.beautyandbows.com
I also have an instagram at starleewhite. 

Are there any other places we can find you?
