When did it happen?
Somewhere around age seven I fell out of love with bows. They were usually attached to a piece of elastic that went across the arch of my patent Sunday shoes. Those shoes were torture. Maybe I associated bows with pain.
Then, somewhere more recently I fell BACK in love with with the idea of bows.
I think it started with all the bow belts I saw featured in the Burberry Fall 2012 Collection.
Every outfit was "Bowed Out"
I was immediately smitten but this little lovely will set you back $450.00
Last week it was showcased in the window on Michigan Avenue in Chicago and I kept passing it every time we would enter or leave our hotel. It was like it was taunting me.
I die but I'm not that crazy.
Bow belts have suddenly become ubiquitous and I, for one, couldn't be happier.
Here are some other options if you find that you are coveting one for yourself.
J Crew $45
Nordstroms Skinny Sparkle bow belt $36
Tory Burch on sale for $115 via Bloomingdales
Kate Spade $68
The Limited on sale for $23.03
Ted Baker on sale for 49.00 via Ted Baker
Tortise Shell bow belt from the Loft $35.00
Lily Pulitzer $33.69 via Amazon
mint green bow belt from Forever 21 $4.80
asos gold metal bow belt $23.69
I love them all and it seems that these bow belts are an easy and an inexpensive way to update or dress up an outfit.
So are you feeling the urge to add to cart or pass?
I'm always curious about your thoughts.
