There are those who favour neckerchiefs or bandanas – but they seem to overwhelm me because they are almost bigger than me.
Darcy wears a scarf sometimes. I have those too . But I was searching for my signature look – not sure what would work best for me.
Then we met Teddy of Teddy Maximus – who made our neckerchiefs for Harry & Meghan’s wedding. Jaffa and I looked so good, we were even featured in a WSJ article! 🙂We met Teddy and his mummy, Holly at Hally’s. Were glad Holly suggested Hally’s as it’s been years since someone told us about it but we never made it down the Kings Road till the other day.This time George and I both had coffee but not Teddy. 🙂
Instead we went to our table – where they brought us water, as Teddy sat in his own Teddy Maximus carrier bag.Mummy was soon telling Holly about my dilemma – too small, too black to wear anything that does not overwhelm me. And Holly, said, “Well, George would look very smart in a bow tie. His beautiful silver black coat would be well complemented by our blue Liberty print ‘London’ bow tie.”
Liberty print? Mummy likes Liberty prints. Magic word. Did the trick and peaked her curiosity!
Holly pulled out of her bag the bow tie and slipped it onto my collar. It has two little elastics to hold it in place and voila! I’ve been transformed. I felt rather proud to have a bow tie on. And Mummy went, “Oh my! That really suits you, George. Let’s see how it fits.”
So I modelled it for her to inspect.“Chin up,” she said.Can you turn your head?“And how would it look at the back of your neck?”“Oh, good! You don’t look like a Christmas present.“What do you think, Mums? A keeper?
“You’re a keeper, Georgie – and the bow tie too!”
I think this is going to be my signature look.
May’s comment: Thank you, Holly! You were right. It’s not too big for dinky George. It actually made him look very handsome. The blue brightened his silver black hair – and he looked pretty chuffed!George’s Liberty print “London” bow tie and Darcy’s “Rose Pink” bow are both from Teddy Maximus.Hally’s serves Californian-inspired breakfast, brunch and lunch in a trendy whitewashed beach-house-style eatery.
