Big Bows! (Subtitle: I Fear I'm Becoming Incredibly Predictable)

Wednesday, October 14, 2009


Let us ignore the pink eyeshadow, door-knocker earrings and the fact that this is marketed as a Halloween costume. How badly do I want this oversized bow headband? (Um. So, sooooo badly. Can someone invite me to a bow-centric party so I can justify the $68 price tag?)

If the gals and I hadn't decided to do the '80s-Let's-Get-Physical coordinated dance thing for the Village Halloween parade -- well before we saw this week's Rachel Zoe Project, I might add -- I would so find a way to make this my costume. Even if I just had to go as Girl With Huge Bow on Head. Or Minnie Mouse. Via style redux.

There is no substitution for an authentic sheepskin Ugg boots. Nightfall Ugg Boots But don't be deterred by these facts. The material used will be apparent when examining the material.Ultra Tall Ugg Boots If your buying online, ask questions and scrutinize the store to make sure you are getting what you desire. As for true sheepskin uggs boots, not all ugg boots are the same but don't be deterred by the natural variation in genuine sheepskin leather.Classic Short Ugg Boots It is the properties of sheepskin, which make the boots so warm and comfortable!

It was so good to meet you last night! Besides being funny and charming (that was to be expected from reading your blog), I couldn't have guessed you'd be SO TALL... modelesque much?! Thank you for being such a good hostess at the event and checking in with all of us... it was worth the wait!

I've been totally obsessed with bows lately too, although not necessarily at your next-level point, just ruminating in the mind about cute little ones a la black and white cashmere Sonia Rykiel sweaters kind of way, and pussy bow ties but in menswear tailoring, or other mashups. You'll see, someday... on the new blog to be. ;)

I havn't gotten into the bows yet. But I admire anyone brave enough to pull them off!

Wow, the title does not lie, that is certainly one big bow. I say go for the Minnie Mouse idea. But good luck finding that awesome polka dot dress. You might just have to make do with polka dot designer jeans. Mickey is good for it.
