Where have all the bows gone? For a while, it was all studs and leather, so it's nice to see the sweet thang is still around. What better way to evoke femininity than with bow belts? Emmy Rossum, on the streets of LA, manages to look not overly saccharine with her silver bow belt, Dita von Teese H&M charity tee, and light wash jeans. Sweet with a touch of spice.
OK, this is really weird. I was perusing eBay as usual when I came across the exact version of a vintage dress I got at a thrift store a few years ago: this Vintage Mod Bluish Purple Mini Dress, bust 38. As a proud owner, let me tell you, it has the ability to instantly induce fun. How can it not with those adorable polka dots, oversize bow, and ruffle collar?
The current bidding price is at $31 and the auction ends on Thursday, April 16. Good luck and happy bidding!
Bows and ties and knots, oh my! On this year's Oscars red carpet, Amanda Seyfried, Tilda Swinton, Heidi Klum, Freida Pinto, and Jessica Biel were well-fastened with bold, over-sized bows and subtle, delicate knots. Seyfried's festive red Valentino gown won't secure her a gold statuette, but it's certainly given "It's a wrap!" a whole new meaning. Take a bow . . .
Mamas of little girls eagerly await the day that their darling has enough hair to swoop into a bow. For the tot learning her letters, the personalized bows from Apple Blossom Bows ($9) may help aid letter recognition. The silver capital letters are sewn on one of more than three dozen grosgrain ribbons available in several shades and polka dot varieties.
When ordering, you can specify which side of her head your daughter wears her barrettes on and a fitting one will be made to order. The designer will even add no-slip grip at no extra charge. Perfect for the every day use, or special birthdays, these clips are sure to become a favorite.
When we saw these waistcoats crop up on Topshop we nearly dropped to the floor with desire--when we realized they called up the same vision as the Moschino Spring 09 show we pulled out our credit card and ordered one. Topshop suggests wearing them with a full skirt and platform heels and although we couldn't agree more, we think these luxe vests would look great with leggings or bloomers just the same. Regardless of your styling preference a vest like this is an interesting piece to have in your wardrobe. The best part is, it will only cost you seventy dollars.
I apologize in advance if this Valentino Noeud d'Amore Clutch ($1,095) causes blindness. It has got to be the brightest purse ever. The ginormous bow is so Valentino, as is the bold crimson color. If you like to stand out in a crowd, this is the way to do so. Would you clutch this?
The wispy strands that adorn wee ones heads can be hard to style. But if you're a mama looking to frill up your lil girl, A Babe Is Born makes delicate bows for your lil darling. The "stylishly sweet bowtique" offers oodles of ribbon clips ($4) to match any ensemble.
Offering flower, heart, and scottie dog designs, to name a few, your dear will happily tie her hair back in these ornaments that come in every shade of the rainbow.
Though I appreciate the way poets twist words, I would like to call attention to their trend setting sense of style. It's all about waxing poetry with big, floppy bows. There's something about this casually loose tie that adds a romantic flair to any outfit. I like to pair my floppy bows with skinny jeans and edgy accessories. How would you wear yours?
