Take a Bow. Pretty Inspiring.

Because tutus, polka dots and little shorts aren’t girlie enough, it seems inspiration on this chilly / snowy / slushy Monday morning comes in the form of bows. Namely on these gorgeous dresses by Chelsea Rebelle; the first is from their AW09 collection, the second, with the white bows, is from their SS10 collection. I even like the shape of the dresses; the Balenciaga one is a similar shape but with one big bow on the back. Still utterly pretty. So because I have no idea where to buy Chelsea Rebelle (you have to email them… whatevs) and defo can’t afford Balenciaga, high street finds it is. No so bad, I’m leaning towards bows that are appliquéd not printed and they need to be big a bit scruffy and slightly heavy. I’m thinking Luella *sniffs* with a twist. I’m also going to make sure I chose quirky and chic to make sure that they don’t look too tacky.

I’m loving jumpers / sweaters / cardis with bows on, how cute would they look with little shirts for winter? The jumpsuit is pretty cute but the thoughts of wearing something so flimsy when it’s so cold outside just make me shiver!

I reckon that bows on accessories are also cute; sheer bow tights, plastic bow ring; headband are all less than £10. The prize for multiple trends in one goes to these mock-stock, polka-dot, bow tights… absolutely gorgeous… and £32!!! I dread to think what the € would be. For a pair of tights that could ladder when you out them on! Shocking.

    I love bows with a burning passion, it’s quite sad really! On my last glance around my room I had 47 (hair bows, hair bands, brooches, bow ties…). The scary part is, that doesn’t even take belts/clothes into account!

    In short, I agree. Bows RULE

    Love the tights! I also like the oversised bow as a detail on a dress!
