I like big bows and I cannot lie...

For someone who doesn't see herself as particularly 'girly', I never realized how much I loved bows until recently.  I thought it was more of my little sister's trademark, but remembered I have been buying bows for quite a few years now, even back to when Alice McCall did those rhinestoned silk bow belts, remember those?

I have also been slightly obsessed with bows on jewellery, such as the Balenciaga bow rings I bought in silver for myself and my sisters.

But above all, my little collection of bows on shoes has grown somewhat in the last year or so, starting with the Isabel Marant Poppy, then the Aminah Jillil bow flats (that I blogged about previously - I loved my red pair so much I bought the cobalt blue pair as well), and most recently the Isabel Marant Pealman (which are lower than the Poppy - bought on sale from Net-a-Porter).  I'm even considering this leopard calf hair version (on sale)  available at Forward (only thing is I can never envisage myself in leopard, but am beginning to think I am open to leopard shoes if they are the right ones).

For those who prefer their bows to be more subtle I recently came across this Lois black suede pair from Madewell (on sale), and have added it to my wishlist...just in case.

What about you, are you into bows?

 Isabel Marant suede Poppy (leopard version available at Forward)

 Naughty and nice:

Happy Fashion Friday everyone!

  1. those bow flats are so cute, absolutley lovely with your rosette dress. You could totally do leopard print, not all leopard print is created = though, when it's's really bad!

    1. Haha, I agree with you on the leopard, some are really an eye sore! x CC
