Wrap It Up With A Bow

Sunday, January 26, 2014

If you haven't noticed, I've been a little MIA...I've taken a mini mid-winter break from blogging and now I'm back, better than ever, with lots of gorgeous eye-candy, focusing specifically on one of the most quintessentially ladylike and elegant features in fashion: The BOW.

Need a bit of dressing up? Put a bow on it. All of these looks are potential DIY ideas. Simply use your creativity to create some truly gorgeous looks from pieces you have around the house (or your local craft store). For example…

…add an over sized bow to the waistband of your skirt.
 Add gold bows to a pair of pumps ala Valentino.

 Attach a grouping of chunky bows to the back of your jacket.

Paint mini bows on your nails.

Add a single bow to the edge of your sleeve.

Cover a simple dress or skirt with a collection of mini bows.

Wrap a ribbon around the ankle straps of your favorite pumps.

 Bows + fascinators = perfect elegance.

There's a reason why bows are usually the finishing touches to gifts. They're pretty, easy to make, and they celebrate the objects that we are so lucky to give and receive. Remember to always celebrate all the gifts, big and small, material and spiritual, that you have in your life!
Have the happiest week!

With love,

    Even if you are not the girlie type you can still wear bows. I like that the bow can be soft and flowing or structured.
