OBSESSED WITH BOWS - fashion post

Wearing the camouflage uniform is beginning to take its toll. (insert whining here....) I haven't worn heels in months and my daily outfit (with the exception of France) is an assortment of khaki greens and browns. Not that I don't love the hiker/safari/German look too, but I am overdue for some frilly over-the-top girly goodness.
It is probably natural that I am being drawn to large bows and overly feminine looks. 
OBSESSED WITH BOWS - fashion post

I am loving all of them, but the Oasis (red/black) and the Elie Saab (blush) are my favorite. I would pair the blush ruffle with gold accessories, skinny jeans and nude stilettos. The red/black would be tons of pearls and a black pencil skirt in the longer length with peep-toe platforms.

Bows are cute. I really want a shirt like this. So beautiful.

xStroutx said...

Agreed. Totally obsessed with bows. I'm a bit in love with both the Oasis shirts...

HI GIRLS - sorry for not having the text in the earlier version of this post. I was 'cheat posting' at work via polyvore and the 'text portion' didn't come through.

I would LOVE to know how you would style your favorite shirt. I'll send you an email and beg you to comment again with more details.

Michelle :)


PS - come back Friday for sure and check out the People Watching Edition of EURO TRASH. It'll be a good one.....

I love the oasis (black/pink one) one and ellie saab one and i think i would also pair the oasis one with a black pencil skirt and some killer heels and with the blush one? maybe if i had my ideal body (flat stomach and long legs) i would wear it with some short denim shorts and a cute pair of strappy wedges.


Thanks for the comments over on the blog, the first pair of earrings sold already but i'm working on some new ones and have a beautiful pendant which is similar and the feather ones are being photographed and etsied later this evening tomorrow, i shall let you know when!

I love simple bows, like the ones pictured there, but not crazy, over-the-top ones.

and oooh, one of the dudes at work wore manpris and I had the immediate need to tell you!!!!!! He's European so it makes sense, but it still made me think of you.

Tanya!!

NO WAY!!!!! Good manpris or bad manpris?

Ms. Jello:
Hmmm, I might just do that. It's in pounds though,,,,so that might be tricky unless I can actually make it to London. Which isn't entirely out of the question....

Ordering online is out of the question. Thier size charts are really weird and returns would be expensive. I think I'll use it as a template to find something similiar here. I suppose I could tie a bow on any old shirt......

Talitha said...

ok I'm back! Hmm..the red polka dot top I would wear with uber skinny jeans and a military style black jacket. Simple nude peeptoes for going out, or some cute flats for heading out to lunch.

haha, I love your comment about being barfy twinseys and may need to look into this hehe. Hmmm, may need to overlook my shopping ban

The DG silk shirt is super nice!

Nikki's World said...

I could see you pulling off all these tops!

Hi, I would love to tell you how I would pair my favorite.
My favorite is the blue one :D I like the color and the sheer material. I would pair it with black leggings and black pumps and with gold accessories. But not too much, because I would want the shirt to shine :)

My second favorite is the black with golden bow, I would pair it with gray jeans and golden or black flats with just simple accessories.
