Bows and Bows and Bows

Even though I'm sort of enjoying the cold weather (it's such a departure from the mild LA winters I'd grown accustomed to), I have to admit it's leaving my brain in a bit of a fog. I've had these photos sitting on my computer for a few days and I just made the connection of what they all have in common. Bow ties! I suppose after seeing that Anthropologie blouse and getting it in my head that I was going to try a DIY version of it, I've had bows on the brain. I really like how they're a nod to the gender-bending ensembles of Annie Hall and Katherine Hepburn, but still with a very feminine touch. I actually bought some fabric at the thrift store last week with intentions for that DIY project but once I started sewing I realized that it was not the type of fabric that was going to drape the way I want it to. Back to the drawing board! In the meantime, I'm going to also be on the lookout for long satiny scarves to use as bow ties a la Miss Bow herself and a couple of my favorite flickr-ers.

It is a little bit far out, but I really like the decorations on the wall behind the yellow sun-coloured girl :)

I was really big on bows, and REALLY big on big bows, around last year, I believe. This just inspired me to pull some bow-incorporated items out of the deep pit which is my closet.
Especially loving the last picture. ;)

I managed to write about 800 words on bows... the trends, the origins, all of it, for my english language coursework and for some mad reason i got an A. I love them! I dont care if they make me look like a birthday present!

I do like a good bow. In fact, I wore a big black one yesterday!

Nessa said...

Me too! I had a big black bow on the back of my coat :D

Hmmm... funny story. I have been recently looking for a white blouse with a tying bow across the neck... I never thought to just use a scarf! Your photo gave me that idea. Thanks!

i only ever use little ribbons for bows, using a big satin scarf like that is such a great idea! thank you!
