Things I Love ... Bows

This week I talked about a few of my favorite feminine fashion pieces: lace and pink.  To complete the list of girly things I love, I have to talk about bows.  A good bow can make everything better.  Now granted, bows can be hard to pull off.  If not done right, they can look way too girly... so girly that you actually feel like a little girl in an Easter dress.  But in my opinion, done right, a bow can be the perfect touch femininity.  It can also be a great statement piece.  But a little bow here and there make things light and fun.

Here are several bows that I love...

Valentino, swoon.

  1. I did a recent post on bows -- specifically, the return of the hair bow! Love your blog. I'm from Texas also. Do you like the program at SCAD? I'm at UT right now but would love to look into something like that post-college!
