Take A Bow

By now everyone knows oversized bows are all the rage, and I must admit I'm a fan of the trend as well. I recently purchased a too-small floral top from Salvation Army that had a big satin bow attached. Since the shirt didn't fit, I just ripped the bow off so that I could use it in other ways. I decided to first wear it in my hair, and debuted the look on Saturday night in Boston at my friend's birthday celebration. I felt a little bit Minnie Mouse, but in a good way. 

I wore a beautiful cocktail dress from Jen's Fashion Plus. Seriously, Jen has sent me a few things and I like them all, but this dress is definitely my favorite. It's the perfect length, and has a beautiful collar that can be worn high or folded over. It's stretchy knit cotton with satin panels along the sides, and best of all, it has great pockets (dresses/skirts with big pockets=love). Last I checked, she only had two or three left; I recommend snatching this up while you can.  Because it was a little chilly, I threw on a cute lace shrug (also from Jen).  You may not think black lace works in the spring time, but according to style.com, you might want to reconsider. 

To complete the look, I wore these amazing black patent leather heels by Dolce Vita which were sent to me by the wonderful people at solestruck.com. My friends and I were definitely the best-dressed in the city.

By the way, if you're digging my satin bow, check out this headband from f21 (or any of their hair accessories, they have tons of great stuff).

  13. Warm dog clothing Abercrombie Polos is made in many different popular fabrics as well. You Abercrombie Polos can get sweaters which are made out of fleece, jackets ed hardy Hats made with micro fiber faux suede as well as knits and standard cotton blends. The Ed Hardy Sale best place to find all of these selections though is through the internet. When Ed Hardy Swimwear you go to the local pet store, if they have any selection at all, their Ed Hardy Swimwear prices can be expensive. The same also goes for specialty shops. However dog Ed Hardy Swimwear apparel on the internet are cheap and since they are even delivered to your front door, you get even more savings.
