I've always had this thing for bows. I immediately want stuff just because it has a bow on it. Giorgio Armani, it seems, also had a thing for bows this season, with them appearing in both his Emporio Armani and Giorgio Armani collections. I absolutely love the drama of the over-sized bow on the dress in the middle. Bows do look fantastic on evening gowns, a perfect example being the Marc Jacobs dress below.
Pussycat bow blouses seem to be re-appearing this season. The secretary look is not over yet it seems, with the pussycat bow blouse and pencil skirt being in the Betsey Johnson collection. Note that the skirt is also high-waisted, another big trend this season. I also loved the DKNY Fall/Winter collection, Irina above wearing a more floaty,very feminine, twist on the bow.

recently did a post as a Homage to Minerva Mouse
, and these bags from Kate Spade remind me of just that. I adore these bow clutches; a real statement piece and loads of fun. I am keeping my eyes peeled for a clutch similar to pink one.
